I’ve posted another excerpt on Riverina Romantics, and I’m also giving away a $10 Amazon Gift Card to one lucky winner. Yesterday was very exciting, watching my title climb the free charts.  I made it to #21 in Paranormal Romance/Psychics and #42 in Paranormal Romance/Vampires.  The numbers have gone down today, but that is still many hundreds more readers than…
