This last month I did a revision of Dangerous Liars. I loved this book and it was good, but someone whose opinion I value suggested it could be better. "What?" I said. "Come on. Are you serious? How?" She dug in, she edited, and she showed me how. Huh. Turns out she was right, and now the book is really good. I'll be consulting this Wonder Editor for future projects.
Here are three fun events I'm participating in and I'd love to have you join me:
The first is Books at the Beach Giveaway and Book Fair. The grand prize is a Kindle Fire HD 8 tablet loaded with over 80 romance ebooks, and there are two $25 Amazon gift cards up for grabs also. Super easy to enter, too. Just follow the participating authors on Book Bub, and you'll be notified when your favorite authors have new books coming out. This is a great way to get alerts and follow your favorite authors because, let's face it, sometimes we don't have time to read all those newsletters! Follow me on Book Bub at this one and then....
Head over here and follow me on Amazon, along with four other authors. You could win a $20 Amazon gift certificate!
Something weird happened to me at this next event. Like, the stars aligned oddly, and nothing I did went right. I sent two incorrect URLs to the person running the show. Aarrgh! Sooooo, the link for Dangerous Addictions could be wrong when you visit. If that happens, and if you'd like Dangerous Addiction for free until June 30th, go to the finally-correct link at InstaFreebie here: https://instafreebie.com/free/zVf5I
Isn't it great to start a book and know there are more in the series? Check out Binge on a new series with 40 + free books for you. Dangerous Addictions, the first book in the Messed-Up Heroes series, is up for grabs. Get your copy, and enjoy all the other first books from the participating authors.
Only a few days left on these events, so visit now, load up your e-reader, and enter to win!
We didn't stun-gun the rude dude, a Romance Writers Gone Wild event with a #contest, and a #freebook
My contest winner is Brenda R. Thanks so much to everyone for participating!
One of my biggest pet peeves is littering. This picture is from a park where I feed my feral cats. Look at that pile of garbage by the trash can. Trash can. Right. There. Grrrrr! My brother suggested a bear got into the can and tipped it over (the can pivots on the wood posts), but since we don't have bears in this part of Florida, I think not. Maybe the can did tip, but I believe a human was involved, and if so, they should have put the trash back in.
Another peeve, people who stand during a concert. I like to get on my feet when the band plays a rockin' song or two at the end, but standing for the whole show - bad manners. I just went to a concert where a man was standing, playing his air guitar, and annoying everyone around him for most of the show. I wanted to yell, "Hey dude. Sit down. You're not the only one here and you're blocking the view of the people behind you who don't want to, or can't stand the whole time. Like that lady in the wheelchair." My buddy suggested popping him with a stun gun. Since I'm a writer, I got a great visual image of how that would play out, and now I have to work that into a book. But you'll be happy to know, we did not zap the rude dude, and stayed out of jail for the evening.
Speaking of behaving (or misbehaving), join me and a bunch of other romance writers as we go wild. We won't stand and play the air guitar (some of us might, just for fun, but we won't block your view), we might make some noise, and we will definitely talk about romance books of all kinds, and give away prizes. http://bit.ly/2ryYbNq
My prize is an Amazon gift card. To enter my contest, just leave me a comment below and tell me one of your pet peeves. I'll pick a winner on June 10th using random.org. Also, Dangerous Addictions, book 1 in my Messed-Up Heroes series, is free at Instafreebie from June 5th through June 9th, so grab your copy now. www.instafreebie.com/free/rdMMI
