There are quite a few awesome deals going on this weekend and I want to share them with you. First up is Michelle Jo Quinn’s contemporary romance, When He Falls, which is 99¢ for a limited time on all retailers.
I just snagged me Coming in Hot: Rescue Me, a sizzling hot medical romance box set which is currently 99¢ during release week. I definitely need more gorgeous doctors in my life, even the shifter kind!
You can grab this set of 16 books from the following retailers:
Anyway, after writing 21k words for my upcoming novel, I decided to start over and this time, follow the outline to the letter. This will be my fourth try, third since I got my outline fine-tuned by a pro. I knew it would take some getting used to, especially with the pants-er in me rebelling and deviating from the script, but after looking at my current manuscript and realizing that there’s no way I can even tie it to the arc I’d already plotted months earlier, I knew it was time to start over. I was simply spinning wheels and going nowhere.
Outlines work for a reason, and it’s about time I follow it. Even my poor characters don’t know how to act…
Speaking of characters, here’s the latest teaser I made for Breaking the Rules:
I know there’s a lot of angst, but it’s a romance, I promise!
So this weekend, I’m finalizing my taxes. Yup, I waited until the last minute and wish me luck. And then after that, I dive right back into rewriting everything from scratch. And that includes not copying and pasting older passages from the first three or four versions because that’s how this whole mess started anyway. I just have to start from the beginning and work with the outline posted right underneath the chapter so I see it every second I’m writing.
After I’m done with this story, I may or may not write a prequel novella but that’s a huge maybe because I’ve got four other books to work on before the summer is over.
I did find time to take walks this week and take pictures of the flowers blooming around the neighborhood. I never thought I’d love orange but I do love yellow-orange roses, it seems. I picked the exact same shades for my wedding ten years ago.
Oh, and if you’re an author looking for inexpensive covers (as low as $13 each), my cover guy is having an amazing sale. Get 5 covers for $75 and 10 for $135. I think it’s an awesome deal and if I didn’t already have 34 covers plus 10 more in a package deal I bought from someone, I’d be all over it.
Oh, but I lie. I already bought five more…
In other news, I’ve unfortunately fallen off the Share Your World bandwagon but not the Outer Space on Film Blogathon which started today. I’ll post mine tomorrow; it’s about one of my all-time favorites, Ridley Scott’s Alien (before 3, 4, 5, 6, and everything else that came after including Prometheus and that last one I’ll call David and David). Nothing ever beats the original… or the second Aliens movie.
So my post went out early this morning before I was ready to publish it. I remember seeing the notice while I was still in bed and thinking, but I didn’t finish writing that post.
Oh well, too late for that. Apparently, I scheduled it to post but didn’t finish writing it.
So here it is again and while it’s the same thing, a promo is a promo and I do love the graphic I made for it. And since it’s St. Paddy’s Day weekend, what better way to celebrate it than to have my book featuring an Irish-American hero go on sale for 99 cents?
I first met Beverley on Instagram and I love the atmosphere of her pictures. I loved the first book, especially the beginning which was very gripping and the atmosphere was spot on if you want to scare the heck out of me and catch my attention.
I’m currently reading the second book which I borrowed with my Kindle Unlimited subscription but will definitely be buying it for my own library as well!
And of course, I had to make a little teaser for it with my Ripl app. I’m clearly running out of my books to create teasers for! Want me to make you one for your book? Convey your message (about your book) in less than 30 seconds using less than 8 images (the max is 8 but it can be dizzying if we include all 8 images in 30 seconds) and send it over to me. If anything, it’s the perfect exercise to find out what your book is about, find a hook, and then make the most of up to 8 images and 30 seconds 🙂
When her husband leaves her for a younger woman, pediatric transplant surgeon Harlow James finds herself alone, without family, and barely a career. So she hits the open road and ends up at the Pearl, a sustainable home outside of Taos, New Mexico where she hopes to find out where she went wrong.
Instead, she finds the perfect man…
Twenty-seven-year-old master woodworker Dax Drexel wants nothing more than to retreat to his beloved Pearl and design the custom furniture that’s made him sought after the world over. Well, that and enjoy his grandmother’s delicious Southwest cooking. But when a scheduling mistake puts both of them in the same place at the same time, can their fling turn into the real thing?
