On April 20, I will present Save The Story:  No More Sagging Middles at the North Shelby Library (anyone can come – romance writer or not) at 10 a.m., Saturday. I will show authors how to break down their story with beats. In turn, they will find the right starting point in their book, prevent sagging middles, [...]

Love it? Review It.

Love it? Review It.

The last Bookbub I looked at was Tuesday’s. Today I caught up. A few interested me, but not enough to buy. I've been wanting to cut back on my TBR pile. So the book has to interest me big time. Wednesday, nothing. Thursday, thought about one, but decided I’ve read too many like it and [...]

A Beautiful Life Being Published

A Beautiful Life Being Published

A few years ago, I posted on another blog about how wonderful it is to be a published author. Some of it was me teasing (aka sarcastic/ being funny) and a commenter thought I was for real and scolded me for not being appreciative of my good fortune. Anyway, I thought I would talk about [...]

Giveaways For Fun

This is a copy of the email I sent out today to my newsletter list. Being a fan of my books, I thought you might like the opportunity to come and win a bag of author swag (some of mine but lots of other authors), including signed copies of NAKED HEAT and CIRCLE OF DECEPTION. [...]

I Love Bookmarks!

I want to mention something I feel strongly about. When my writers group's luncheon was over, I went to the large trash can to throw away an empty box. I looked in and to my horror were LOTs of bookmarks, booklets, post cards, in other words, paper promo out of at least two giveaway bags. [...]

Giveaways!

I have two paperback books (six copies of each) in the Goodreads giveaways.  In fact, one of them is actually two novellas. Anyway, check it out. Giveaway ends May 15, 2017.  USA only. Sorry, but I have to pay the postage. Click here for the NAKED HEAT: A Brothers of Mayhem novel. The last book about [...]

I'm giving away swag (cups, pens, jar openers -the red circle, book marks, etc.), and books, and gift cards. How do you [...]

Happenings

I had so much happen lately, and there is a lot going to happen in the next few months. Like the following. June 4, Saturday, I will be signing books at the Athens-Limestone Public Library. Since I have so many announcements, I thought you might want to be the first to hear about it. So [...]

Countdown begins…

You can purchase Hidden Heat on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Kobo Books, and iBooks! Click on this link to go to blogs that will be telling you about my book and giving away $25 gift card.

FULL HEAT coming July 5

Forget shining armor. Motorcycle shop owner Mary Jane Parker could use a knight in black leather right about now. A local gang has been extorting her for protection money, and standing her ground would be a lot easier with the Brothers of Mayhem at her back. She just needs to convince the club's new president [...]

Congratulations to The Winners!

For the last couple weeks, my newsletter subscribers had received instructions on how to win gift cards. I first offered one $20 gift card. With so many people participating, I added 3 $10 gift cards. But when I was picking the winners, I decided to add one more $10 gift card. I sure wish I [...]
