Can You See Me??



Hey guys!
 
With Facebook's ever changing rules on what people can and can't see on their newsfeeds, I've been looking for different ways to reach my followers, fans, and potential readers. So here are some new ways you can follow me and stay up to date on all important information.
 
If you're on Tsu, follow me! If not, what are you waiting for? Tsu actually pays YOU to interact on their site. Granted, it's not a lot. In fact, I think I've only made .06 in a week or two, but that's more than Facebook gives me. On Facebook, I have to pay THEM if I want my posts to reach more than 2% of my followers. To join, you have to enter in an existing member's handle. You can use mine.

Also, I've put together a newsletter. I promise I won't be flooding your inboxes with random messages, just pertinent information on my upcoming releases and events. You can click on the link here to sign up, or use the bar on the right of this page to enter in your email address.
 
I've got a lot of new things coming up starting the first of the year, so you guys don't want to miss it!
 
XOXO,
Rachael

Tackled by Love

"I fell in love with Tackled By Love. Rachel Duncan has done an amazing job writing this book. She incorporated actual issues that happen in everyday life. From athletes having career ending injuries, bullying, and women having self-esteem issues due to their weight. She has made an honest love story work." -Swoon Worthy Books
"This book managed to surprise me in more ways than one. As a debut author, I really feel like this was a very worthwhile read and I'm so happy I gave it a shot." -Smokin Hot Book Blog

"This is a total MUST read!! I highly recommend that you read this book." -Reviewer 

"Okay I never say this but you must read this book. Even if you don't like sports. This book is amazing. The story is well done and different." -Sassy Southern Book Blog



Synopsis:

Landon Stone has it all. He’s the star quarterback for one of the powerhouse teams in a professional football league, has a beautiful supportive wife cheering him on, and plenty of money to support him for the rest of his life. In the blink of an eye, it all comes crashing down as every player’s worst fear unfolds right in front of his eyes. With nothing left, he finds himself going back to where it all started.

Autumn McCray has lived in the same small town her whole life. Being tormented and bullied throughout high school she has those constant reminders surrounding her every day. Having put most of those demons behind her, she’s forced to confront them once again and find her inner strength in order to move forward.

With Landon and Autumn’s paths crossing, they both are faced with obstacles they never imagined they would have to overcome. Will they help each other with their struggles or be left to tackle them on their own?

Tomorrow is the Big Day!



I can't believe tomorrow is the day Tackled by Love goes live. It's been ready for a while and I've been doing my best to resist the urge to hit publish early. (The only thing stopping me was Ena, the host of my tour, threatening my life if I did so. ha!)

But finally, tomorrow is almost here and I can't wait for you guys to read Landon and Autumn's story. The response from the blogger who have read it so far has been wonderful; all 4 and 5 star reviews thus far. I hope everyone enjoys and I can't wait to hear what everyone thinks! (Even though it makes me a nervous wreck!)

For those who are just now stumbling across my posts, below is the synopsis as well as pre-order links. I'll have buy links for Barnes and Noble and iTunes as they become available. (iTunes may take a bit longer.)
