I’m thrilled to announce that book two in my Love and Chocolate Series, Marry the Doctor is now available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and iTunes.

Marry the Doctor


Since the death of his wife, Frank Brannigan has focused on raising his two daughters and furthering his medical practice, but he’s lonely. Maybe it’s time to get married again, but how?

Marry the Doctor is book two in the Love and Chocolate Series. Each book is a stand-alone sweet romance without cliff hangers.

For those of you who read Corporate Husband, I think you’ll enjoy Frank’s story.

Please let me know what you think of it – either through email Beverly.farr.author@gmail, or writing a review on Amazon or Goodreads.

Vance Packard’s book The Hidden Persuaders, about media manipulation in the 1950s, sold more than a million copies. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

I read Hidden Persuaders by Vance Packard years ago, and learned about the subliminal messages created by various advertising techniques.  Different colors send different messages to the brain, and that’s true with shapes as well.

We live in a visual world and we all interpret the avalanche of data that surrounds us.

With this in mind, I’ve been updating my book covers and it’s been an interesting process to stare at various versions for hours, debating the merits of image, font, color, etc.  I hired a professional cover designer, consulted with friends with degrees in design, and bothered chance acquaintances, asking them, “Which cover is better?”  But in the end, I have to go with my gut reaction.

Forgotten Honeymoon new cover

Here’s the new cover to Forgotten Honeymoon, which is only slightly different from the cover before.

And now to get back to the real work:   writing the next book.  Because although pretty packaging may sell, ultimately there has to be some substance.  I’m currently working on a three book series.

And yes, I’m still having fun.

The M-word has also been improved.  New cover:

The M-word

I liked the old  cover, but it didn’t tell people at a glance what the story was about.    Now, I think they’ll know.

Note:  the cover has been updated on Amazon and Smashwords.  Barnes and Noble may take a few days, maybe a week.  And I’m still learning how to update covers on Goodreads.

And having mentioned those sites, I’ll add that I greatly appreciate any reviews readers wish to make.
