All the News!

by Bethany Maines

The last few years have been extremely busy for me in terms of writing and that means that in 2020 all of you will be seeing the results. So I thought we should do a little re-cap of everything that’s happening.  Here is an update on all things Bethany.

THE SECOND SHOT- Release Date: 10.24.19

My romantic suspense novel was named a Pacific Northwest Writer’s Association 2019 Finalist in the Romance category! Although, I have to admit, my love story shares it’s DNA with a mystery-thriller I’m extremely excited and proud of this award.  It was also featured in Frolic – the online magazine for people who love love-stories.  And it has made it onto the Goodreads “Most Anticipated Release for October” List.  This list is voted on by Goodreads readers, so if you’re on Goodreads, please go vote The Second Shot!  AND, last but not least, there’s a Rafflecopter Giveaway for a $25 Amazon Giftcard.  Entering is easy, just go click a few things and follow me on social media and you’re entered!
