NEW RELEASE ON AMAZON

Twenty-five-year-old Max Novaline just had her heart ripped out by her meathead ex-boyfriend, Bart Moore. Determined to bounce back, she heads to Napa Valley’s Angel of the Vine Winery, maker of her favorite Moscato, to scout out tours for work and, let’s be honest, catch a glimpse of the owner’s drool-worthy son, Chase L’Angevin, as seen on YouTube.

Chase, who likes a hot mess with an ample derrière, starts to pour on the charm the moment he meets Max. When their first date rolls into a long, romantic weekend, their chemistry ignites faster than a matchstick in hell. But after their second date is interrupted by Chase’s work-related obligations, Max bides her time wine tasting awaiting his return, which is no biggie until a drunk tourist catapults her into a whirlwind of chaos, that dumps her right back into the clutches of her manipulative ex.

Bart even has the nerve to dupe her into thinking he’s some kind of hero!

Not only that, determined to reconcile with Max, Chase keeps sneaking around, insisting they had a hotter connection, only to come off looking like a stalker with only one thing on his mind … his own as to grind.

PRclose-up-eiffel-tower-view-qtEven more adventures arise when Max has to deal with what she wants and what she has. Not only does she need to do major damage control with the entire L’Angevin family thanks to Bart’s shady deeds, but she also has to convince Chase she’s worth a second chance despite her antics having practically snuffed out their flame.

WHINE WITH CHEESE is about a young woman discovering her full potential while falling in love one sweet wine tasting at a time.

Bart even has the nerve to dupe her into thinking he’s some kind of hero, just so he can plot his revenge behind her back!

Not only that, determined to reconcile with Max, Chase keeps sneaking around, insisting they had a hotter connection, only to come off looking like a stalker with only one thing on his mind—his own ax to grind.

Even more out-of-control adventures arise when Max has to deal with what she wants and what she has.

***This novel is a kissy, touchy, feely, passionate, sexy, swoony, CONTEMPORARY ROMANTIC COMEDY, but the explicit details of sex scenes are kept closed-door–well, maybe I crack it a little bit, but you get the idea.***

Heat Level: Sweet, Sensual, Steamy

The Kind of Surprise you Love!

Here I am minding my business, going about my day, nice and lazy, just the way I like my weekends, and wham, I finally get around to picking up the mail, and, wouldn’t you know, I had a surprise awaiting me.

Prompt Me More! by Robin Woods doesn’t even go on sale on Amazon until Tuesday, March 21st. Lucky me!

FullSizeRenderI’m one of those writers who cracks open the laptop every day. Whether I’m writing, mulling over something I’ve already written, character building, plotting, or scouting out a location in a far away land I’ll never actually get to visit but damned if I don’t plan on plopping a character down in the middle of at some point in one of my rom-coms, I am always doing something writerly, no matter what. Getting a new prompt booklet to expand on my thoughts is just what I needed to keep my mind running in guided directions instead of all over the place as I’m currently plotting out a whole series. You know those little lines or even whole scenes that creep up on you out of nowhere and fit perfectly into a seamless plot inspired by a random moment in your day … I just got handed a 176-page resource that does nothing but inspires and prods at my creativity without having to hunt for it. Sweeet!

So, when my fellow author friend extraordinaire shares the wealth on her latest publication, I’m all grabby hands about it, because … FREE (but, for you, it’s an affordable $9.99!), and, let’s face it, blank pages and blinky cursors are fine and all if you’re into that sort of tabula rasa feel, but, if you like to jumpstart your writing with a prompt, my friend has what you need. Seriously. You need this. You just have to wait a couple days. Then snag one for yourself or someone you know. Just do it. Do it. Do it.

If you haven’t checked out Robin Woods yet, you’re really missing out. First, she’s a young adult author who entangles fallen angels and vampires with the mundane world to create a magical place where there are no ‘normal’ days for the characters going about their own business in her Watcher Series. Secondly, she also pens workbooks for the writers in all of us. Prompt Me More! is her second installment filled with picture prompts and various creative juice starters, such as first and third person one-liners and dialogue prompts for fiction writing, as well as, self-discovery and interest prompts that are meant to spark a non-fiction piece. Oh, the endless possibilities!

If you write and love that hand’s on feel of pen on paper, the workbook is set up to write directly into it. If you prefer to type, then have it nearby your keyboard. Also, if you’re a teacher, your daily/weekly writing prompts are taken care of as they’re all classroom friendly. So much goodness!

With graduation just around the corner, this workbook makes a perfect gift for that young man or woman who loves to journal and enjoys a challenging prompt to spin a story around. I personally like to use Robin Woods’ workbooks to keep myself accountable to writing every day. But, enough about me, how do you plan on using your Prompt Me More! booklet?

Bringing in the New Year

New Year’s resolutions are peculiar kinds of self-imposed torture devices.

Diet, (but I looove chocolate), Exercise, (but it’s too cold outside to put in my miles), Write (but the whole mess swirling in my head won’t come out)

So it’s with a big ol’ eye roll that I put it in writing again to say …

I resolve to finish my second book. (Exhale)

It’s not even my second really if you count the pile of words I slapped a NaNoWriMo badge on a year ago or the hundred or so pages of two dead-in-the-water stories I’ll continue to leave bobbing around in the murky past.

But book number two in my two-part series cannot fall victim to my excuses anymore. (I’m saying this to myself more than you *wink*)

fullsizerender-1I’ve had some setbacks this past year that have left me with no other choice but to confess and move forward with a plan to commit to finishing what I started … again.

Writing in first-person and using a dual POV has become my favorite style of storytelling, which is one of the reasons I’m stalling on knocking out my second. The story only works if I tell it through a deep third-person POV. Besides, the consistency has to be there to match the first novel. If it wasn’t, OCD me would faint from the horror. Nevertheless, I keep dodging my document in lieu of adding pages to my other works.

Another reason is I can’t get the voice of a particular MC out of my head lately. Her incessant chatter keeps spilling out of me, and despite my shameful need to stay the course on getting past the first handful of pages of my second novel, I find myself constantly pecking out her quirky rants. She’s not even supposed to make an appearance for another seven books.

Yep. Seven. See, I haven’t been completely wasting my writerly time doing “nothing”.

fullsizerender-2Once the current WIP is complete, I am going to roll out a five-novel series, followed by another five-novel series both of which I’ve spent the last year character building and plot-weaving for at least five years’ worth of publishing material. See a trend here. I might need to make five resolutions to lock in my self-imposed jinx, I mean, commitment.

If I’d just get off my lazy a$$ and do the writing thing already.

Maybe lazy is too harsh. I haven’t been “not” writing, I’ve just been leaving words elsewhere.

I can’t deny that being in query limbo with a couple of agents for what feels like forever hasn’t thrown a dimmer switch on my motivation either. I’m more than likely going to nudge once more in hopes of getting closure with the full I’ve had in the hands of one particular agent, but a year of twiddling my thumbs is shameful on my part. A year. Ouch.

fullsizerenderI have to wonder if my junk mail somehow ate the rejection letter, or the MS got lost in the hundreds of others I know that particular agent receives a week, or if it really does take that long to get an answer. I could go on and on, but you get the idea. I’ve been mulling the what-if’s too long with this little bump in the road to traditional publication.

So, in the end, I need to reach an end, and the quickest way to do that is to start or at least start where I left off and slough off the excuses. So I’m giving myself a New Year’s countdown to get on with my resolutions in five, four, three, two, …
