New Release:

I have revised and updated an older novella, NOT DONE LIVING, and created a historical version as well. Both stories are on sale for 99cents. They are, in essence, the same storyline set in different eras. It was a fun project I may do again with other stories.


Off Site:

I had two fun interviews online this week. Visit Carol Moye's blog and read a bit about who I am and why I write.  Also, I had a nice chat with Sylvia Frances about my latest projects. Over on the GNFA blog, I discuss more about TAKE MY BREATH AWAY.

I am primarily working on the 4th book in The Billionaire Boys Club series, CRISTOBEL. I am hoping to finish and have it released in October. In this excerpt, Cristobel Wolfe, the younger brother of Paxton Wolfe (Book 3) meets a troubled young woman named Marina.

Excerpt:

Marina Allenoy was very pretty, slim, petite, with silky brown hair cut shoulder length. He’d seen pretty women before, of course, but none that he was attracted to quite so much, and he wondered how much of that was because of how fragile she seemed. She’d driven into the lot rather hasty, sliding to a frantic halt. That had brought him to the front where the next thing he noticed was her pale complexion and large fear-filled eyes.

Something was clearly wrong, but what, he’d yet to figure out. Perhaps, it was a simple as her not feeling well like she’d implied. She seemed guarded, too, but again, that could be because they didn’t know one another.

“Will you come?” he asked again. He wanted her to come. A smile on her face would change it completely and, the act of painting, provide a distraction to whatever bothered her.

“I … I will. When do you think … you’ll have it open?”

“It’ll be several weeks yet, but if you like I can call you.”

Her expression shaded, reluctance returning. He hurried to comfort her. “Or you can call me. Here …” He rose from the chair and wandered to the counter. Digging beneath it, he scrawled his number and extended it to her. “That’s my private number. Call it anytime.”

She folded her lip between her teeth, her hand never leaving her lap.

“Please.” He stretched it out further.

She accepted at last, curling the paper in her palm. Her face flushed, she rose. “I … should go. I was headed to the store, and at this rate, will never get there.”

He smiled and walked her to the door, holding it open for her to exit, then rushing past her, opened her car door as well.

She paused without sitting and turned. She said nothing, but it was more what she wanted to say, and that he read very well. A smile flickered and she dipped her gaze. He finally reversed. She was gone minutes later. Expelling a sigh, he returned inside, dejected.

I will be doing another email subscriber only giveaway in the near future. Tell your friends, have them subscribe, and look for the book information and the giveaway date within a short time.

I have finally taken the time to break the 3 books included in the ME & TIMOTHY COOPER paperback into 3 separate books. You will now be able to purchase the story that matches, I KISSED THE BOY NEXT DOOR and THE BEST WEEK OF MY LIFE as their own paperbacks. Look for the sale links under "Amazon" for each book on the blog's catalog page. Books should be online within a few days.

Today's excerpt is another portion from my new release, TAKE MY BREATH AWAY, now available for purchase. In this scene, Troy and Hannah have their first, somewhat unsettling, meeting.

Excerpt:
He was taller than she expected, once up close, perhaps six-foot-one or so, and imposing. She put that down to his apparent unhappiness and therefore, partially dreaded what she had to say.

“Troy Lansing. Maura said you wanted to speak with me?”

He talked deep, like he sang, harmonic, almost.

Hannah stood to her feet, her nerves taking hold. “Yeah … I’m sorry to tell you this, but I … I had an accident. Outside?” She paused to inhale.

Why did this boy make her so nervous?

“My tire blew, not sure why, but I … I lost control and ran into a green pickup?” This last bit squeaked out too high-pitched, and embarrassment swamped her. She could, at least, sound confident and mature, not like a fifteen-year-old.

“You hit my truck?” He scowled, thick brows forming a line.

Hannah gulped, her throat dry. “I … guess? I’m really sorry. My dad …”

He blew out a breath, waving one arm outward. “Great. That’s all I need … for some … tourist … to come prancing in here …”

“Tourist?” Her anger sparked. “I admit I’ve never been here before, but …”

“There you go then,” he said.

Sunday Photographs

Water, water everywhere ... or so the poem goes. It rains, then rains, then rains again here. We are fortunate to not have to deal with flooding like some, but you do forget what the sun looks like.

My first offering is actually a video. A family of three Sandhill Cranes - Mom, Pop, and this year's Baby - were in the left-hand cowfield. A single bachelor male was in the field to the right. The two males were not getting along and so calling back and forth.




Enjoy the rest of the photos.

Writing News:

Zip on over to the GNFA blog and check out my recent post, THINGS I LEARNED WRITING, and learn 3 good writing tips.

My upcoming novel, CLARA, has been put on hold. The storyline went south on me, so I'm rethinking things. As in all things writing, sometimes plots have to be reconsidered. I promise it'll come out the other end even better. I just can't say when that'll be.

I also have two YA series upcoming. Book 1 of both series is almost completed. 

I have an exciting book in the planning stages, JOE, Book 1 of a series. I won't say what the exact storyline is right now, but I will give you a look at the cover. This will be a new twist on an old tale.



Today's except is from my next book to be released a Young Adult Romantic Suspense, the first of that genre I've written. It is in the editing stages.

Blurb:
This time she felt it, the luxury of his voice suffusing her chest, and the sound combined with the warmth of his arms, the pointed pressure of his chin on the top of her head, served to romance her.

She’d fall hard and fast for him if she’d let it. But the pain of her mom’s betrayal and what still lay unsaid with her dad stopped her, and instead, she teetered on the edge, her mind warring with the daydream spun around her.

-----

Her mom and dad’s divorce, although it was years ago, still causes friction in nineteen-year-old Hannah Giselle’s life, friction she hopes two weeks alone with her dad in the northern California mountains will help begin to heal.

But her mom’s resentment seems to follow her there, taking a firm grip in the secrets which soon come to light. Her dad had a fiancĂ©e she knew nothing about, a lovely woman whose unresolved disappearance quickly turns her already troubled world upside down.

She finds comfort in the arms of handsome local, Troy Lansing. He’s stronger than he knows and, despite his personal doubts, the steady hand she needs. Especially when yet one more revelation tears her life apart.
