Her Indecent Proposal

My dear Readers,

It is now the night of February 28, just a few hours before my deadline to publish 'Her Indecent Proposal' - I had promised to have it ready for March 1.  Unfortunately, due to unforeseen circumstances, I will not be able to make my deadline.  I'm so sorry : (

As soon as 'Her Indecent Proposal' is ready I will be posting the announcement on my blog.  It will definitely be within a week or two (working to make it earlier rather than later).  I do apologize for not living up to my commitment. 

I know this will not make up for the delay, but I encourage you to click on the link to subscribe to my blog so that you can receive the announcement when the new book is out.  As a small token of my appreciation, the first 10 people to sign up will receive a gift copy of the book.

I genuinely value your support and want to thank each of you for continuing to look for Judy Angelo books.

Thank you all and, whatever you do, keep on reading!

Judy's Writing Tip #1

I'm sure many of my readers are also writers (or aspiring writers) so, in the spirit of sharing, I'll be posting a writing tip each week. These are writing strategies I've learned from other writers, from conferences, from books on writing, or things I simply figured out as I wrote my own stories.  Hopefully, you'll find them useful.

Tip #1.

Pay close attention to your first line, your first paragraph, your first scene and your first chapter.  This is where you HOOK the reader and reel her in.  Grab her attention from your very first line, reel her in with the first paragraph, pull her up with your first scene, and drop her into the bottom of the boat with your first chapter.  Once you've got her there, it is highly unlikely that she'll get away from you at that point.  So make sure to end your first chapter on a question, an exciting point or a mystery - make sure she has to read on to find out.

Now let's go fishing!

Good news and bad news

Let me start with the bad news.  I just started a 'healthy eating' diet which does not include Snickers.  (pouts as she is typing this).

On the other hand, I was happy to wake up to find 'Bedding Her Billionaire Boss' at #30 on the Movers and Shakers list on and at #87 in the entire store.  Woohoo!

Keeping my fingers crossed that readers will continue to try my latest novel.  This is the best post Valentine's Day gift ever!

Daddy by December - Featured on ENT

I'm happy to share that 'Daddy by December' has been featured today on as a 'Bargain Book of the Day':


Daddy by December
by Judy Angelo
Rating: 4.2 Stars
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Price: $0.99

“Such a sweet story about reuniting with a lost love… that’s the kind of love we all wish for and only some of us are lucky enough to find.” -Pamela
A DADDY IN THE MAKING…A little girl, a wish, and a woman determined to stay out of his reach. How to reconcile the three? Billionaire investor, Drake Duncan, is at the top of his game. He decides to hire a ghostwriter to work on his memoir. Little does he know that the writer who will answer the call is truly a ghost – from his past.
Meg Gracey is the proverbial ‘starving artist’, a writer down on her luck. When she is offered a contract as ghostwriter she jumps at the chance, only to later realize that the job will throw her directly in the path of the man she vowed never to ‘touch with a long stick’. Caught between starvation and emotional torture she is forced to choose. Does she follow reason or give in to the desires of her heart?

Thanks, ENT.  You're great!

Remember your vitamins...

Good morning, everyone!

This has absolutely nothing to do with books but I just thought I'd give my readers (who live in cold climates) a gentle reminder to take your Vitamin D supplements during the winter months.  Low vitamin D levels (due to lack of exposure to the sun) can weaken the immune system and make you prone to a variety of illnesses.

And stock up on your fish oil with Omega 3 (the liquid version is more potent than the capsule version).  Since taking fish oil, in  the past month my energy level has shot up to about 9.75 (even 10 on some days).  Now I can churn out books like crazy  : )

But seriously, guys, let's take care of ourselves, eat right, exercise daily (I need to work on this one), sleep well and avoid stress as we much as we can.  And when the kids seem determined to drive you over the edge with their whining about homework or leaving their toys on the stairs once again or refusing to eat their vegetables, just rest your hand over your heart and take three deep, cleansing breaths.  Your blood pressure level will go right back down and you'll be at peace with the world again (okay, maybe not totally at peace but you'll feel a lot better).

Have a healthy, happy and productive day!  (In fact, I'm wishing this for you all year - now do your part to make my wish come true)

Moving on up!

Great news!

My latest billionaire romance, 'Bedding Her Billionaire Boss', after only a week in the Amazon kindle store is #1 in Bargain Books, #10 in Humor and #86 in Contemporary Romance.
