It’s a New Release: Her Lucky Charm 🍀🍺

Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day, Her Lucky Charm, a lighthearted (though with a little bit of angst) is now LIVE! I had originally written Falling for Jordan‘s Addison and Jordan’s St. Patrick’s Day wedding and honeymoon but before I knew it, Roxy and Kodi, (the bridesmaid and groomsman respectively) took over! Suddenly, itContinue reading “It’s a New Release: Her Lucky Charm 🍀🍺”

Happy Book Birthday to Me!

Yup! Every Breath is live early and that’s the first story done and dusted for 2019. Twelve more to go! Celebrations have so far included home-brewed coffee and breakfast that’s yet to be decided on. Toast or oatmeal… or bagel with cream cheese? Nothing too fancy because I have to get back to work onContinue reading “Happy Book Birthday to Me!”

Bad Boy or Good Guy Love? #awritersfebruaryromance

I’ve recently joined an Instagram challenge called #awritersfebruaryromance and what I like about it is that it’s geared toward authors. Most of the ones I’ve seen are usually for readers and so when I spotted this one two days late, I jumped right in. Today, the challenge was Bad Boy or Good Guy Love? BasedContinue reading “Bad Boy or Good Guy Love? #awritersfebruaryromance”

Not Much Has Changed #TeaserTuesday

I feel Benny’s mouth on the back of my neck, his beard tickling my skin. I giggle, feeling his arms tighten around my waist as I playfully struggle to pull away. As I open my eyes, I see the time blinking from his bedside clock. “Isn’t your flight in two hours?” “Hmmm.” He nips theContinue reading “Not Much Has Changed #TeaserTuesday”

You’re the best Christmas ever, Mrs. Drexel

The earthship is decorated for Christmas, and it’s where the Drexels and their friends are all spending the holidays. Even the Villier brothers are coming, promising to bring homegrown macadamia nuts dipped in homemade dark chocolate. Dyami and Benny made paper snowflakes, hanging them from the ceiling in various corners of the Pearl, and inContinue reading “You’re the best Christmas ever, Mrs. Drexel”

A Sweet Holiday Story for You

I wrote The Accidental Christmas three years ago after a trip to the Christmas tree lot with my then-five-year-old Lil Dude. We told him that he would get to pick the tree he wanted and as we followed him between rows of trees hoping and praying he wouldn’t pick the tallest tree, he surprised usContinue reading “A Sweet Holiday Story for You”

Forbidden #teasertuesday

The next morning, Campbell and I hardly look at each other or even talk. Sure, we do the usual good mornings, how are you bit but that’s about it. It’s as if the clock has struck twelve and he’s on a mission to take Cinderella home seven hours too late. He plays R&B on theContinue reading “Forbidden #teasertuesday”

Writing About Sex: Just How Hard Is It?

In light of the Guardian article today about Bad Sex Awards 2018, I remembered this New York Times article a few months ago about writers who don’t write about sex talk about how hard it is to write about sex… Sex is notoriously tricky to describe. A writer’s tumescent member is a reader’s risible euphemism.Continue reading “Writing About Sex: Just How Hard Is It?”

“… Best Decision I Ever Made” #teasertuesday

Campbell finds me in the living room two hours later, sitting on the lambskin rug on the floor in front of his Christmas tree that’s all lit up. Fully decked out with the decorations we’d purchased at the holiday market, he added white string lights that make the golden ribbons and tinsel glisten like stars.Continue reading ““… Best Decision I Ever Made” #teasertuesday”

Mockups Anyone?

I often get messages asking me about the mockups I use for my book teasers and thought I’d write a post about it as a way to also organize the who’s and the what’s of creating book teasers. For those who have no idea what I’m talking about, this is a book mockup. It’s basicallyContinue reading “Mockups Anyone?”
