Barefoot Bay

Nestled among the barrier islands of Mimosa Key in the Gulf of Mexico is Barefoot Bay, a picturesque tropical paradise and home to an elegant resort, a budding minor league baseball franchise, and a delightful beach town with quaint shops and good gossip. After a hurricane nearly wipes out half the island, four women join forces to build Casa Blanca Resort & Spa, attracting wealthy vacationers and destination weddings. With a vibrant community of friends, enemies, and lovers, Barefoot Bay is now open for writers to make it home for their characters and stories. This World is full of potential for romance, mystery, intrigue, and drama all set on the beloved sun-drenched shores of Roxanne St. Claire’s long running Barefoot Bay series.

Poorly formatted books and books with misleading titles, cover art, or product descriptions will not be published. We reserve the right to determine whether content provides a poor customer experience.
  3. Promote Your Creative Vision: Your writing and vision should be the focus in your Kindle Worlds fiction. Paid advertising or excessive use of brand names is prohibited.
