Linda, thank you so much for having me on your blog today!
Thanks for being here Lisa.
My name is Lisa Mondello and I write both secular and Christian fiction in many forms! I say that because unlike some authors who just write westerns or paranormal romances, I write a little bit of everything!
But today I’m going to talk about my new series, Fate with a Helping Hand. This series was written over 10 years ago. However, only two of the stories were published in small press. All I Want for Christmas is You (Available as a 99 cent download on BN.com and Amazon.com) was the first book to be published. I love Christmas stories. I could write one every single year! In fact, I’m one of those readers who stockpiles Christmas stories during the holidays and reads them one right after the other. The second book in the series is The Marriage Contract, a romantic comedy. The third stories, The Knight and Maggie’s Baby, is a brand new book that has never before been published. I’m excited to have all 3 of the books in the series now available for readers to enjoy.
One of the things that is unique about these three stories is that I drew from what I knew to write them. You may have heard people say that writers should write what they know. I did. I have lived and spent lots of time in the three different Massachusetts towns that these books are set in. I call them the 3 corners of Massachusetts because All I Want for Christmas is You is set in the western part of the state. The Marriage Contract is set in Westport Massachusetts on the beach that I used to frequent when I was growing up. (I still love it there.) And The Knight and Maggie’s Baby is set in the Boston area. I drew a lot of inspiration from the time I lived in Boston in my early twenties while I was writing this book.
I love writing about what I know. But I also love learning about new places. In a few weeks I will have another book available for sale. Nothing But Trouble is set in Wyoming’s Wind River Mountain Range and features a sexy bull rider who acts as a trail guide for a month and falls in love with a pampered socialite with something to prove. Although I’ve never been, I hope to one day visit these mountains.
Fate with a Helping Hand:
Book 1: All I Want for Christmas is You
Book 2: The Marriage Contract
Book 3: The Knight and Maggie’s Baby (Never before released)
All three books in the series feature a little “someone” who gives fate a hand to push the hero and heroine together in order for them to realize they’re in love
The entire series is available on Amazon.com for Kindle, BN.com for Nook and Smashwords.com for all other formats.
