About Me - Contact

My grandmother always told me that it’s impolite to toot your own horn. Bragging, she said, is not seemly for a young lady. Well, I’m not young anymore, and all I’m doing here is laying out the facts, ma’am, just the facts. *ornery grin*

I’m a bestselling, award-winning author of over 40 contemporary romance, sweet romance, and women’s fiction novels, and I love this new publishing world that allows me to call myself a hybrid author. Let me explain...

I wrote for Harlequin Books for nearly twenty years. My Harlequin novels won 3 HOLT Medallions as well as other awards and made bestseller lists. A few years ago I started self-publishing some of my work. My “indie” books have also won awards and have made it onto both the Kindle and Nook Top 100 Bestseller Lists. One of my self-published books, RECLAIM MY HEART, made the USA Today Bestseller List and was quickly snapped up by Amazon Publishing Montlake Romance. My books have been translated; Amazon Crossings has published HIS WIFE FOR A WHILE in German as EHEFRAU AUF ZEIT. And Zhe Jiang Publishing has translated RETURN OF THE RUNAWAY BRIDE in Chinese. Being self-published AND traditionally published makes me a hybrid author.

As an Indie Author, I have found “being my own boss” to be as exhilarating as it is overwhelming. I’m in charge of everything aspect of each book: writing, cover design, marketing, etc. I’ve been amazed by reader response to my books. I know that I am nothing without readers who are willing to buy, read, and review my work. To my loyal readers, I’d like to say THANK YOU!

Please feel free to connect with me. I'd love to hear from you.

If you enjoy romance novels that make you laugh and also tug at your heart, please give my books a try.

Warmest regards,

Thank you! - - for your Q&A on Ask.com regarding 'Indie Publishing". My wife just finished a literary romance novel and as her 'business agent' I truly needed some realistic insight into how and what was ahead. You are a caring, thoughtful person..much success in your endeavors.

Donna Fasano said...

CA, wow! Thank you very much. Your kind words are much appreciated!

I did all but join your street team, not because I don't want to but because my husband is having surgery and will require a lot of my time during his recovery as well as raising our 5yr.old grandson. It wouldn't be fair as I'll not have the time to do a good job. Tried on Goodreads but came back not found.

Donna Fasano said...

Dialeigh, thank you! I've entered you x5 in the giveaway. Thanks for helping me! Here's me on Goodreads:

I wish your husband a speedy recovery!

My best,

I just finished “Return if the Runaway Bride”. I loved it! It is so nice to read a nice romance without all the vivid descriptions of body parts and accompanying actions. You show that a story can be romantic without going into such detail, lets me imagine what happened. Thank you!

Hi Donna
I would love you to have a look at my new novel. I was published by Amanda Hayward who challenged me to write a romance but she's going through some legal issues atm so I'm reluctant to show her and so therefore looking for a reputable reader, I put it on Wattpad.

Kind regards
