French It Up! Glynis Astie’s New Book Is Here!

Standard

FRENCH FRY 1 (1)So there’s this faboo author called Glynis Astie. If you haven’t heard of her, get with the program! She’s great! And I’m not just biased because we’re buds or anything.

She’s written fictionalized versions of her oh-so-original and crazy life, called French Twist, French Toast, and now her newest, French Fry, out today! Way better than “French fries, French dressing, and French bread (and to drink—Peru!)” (Name that movie and you win…well, props, anyway.) Read the rest of this entry

Looking for Summer Romance Reads? Good Luck

Standard

Wowsers. Ever watch someone go through amazing contortions to get out of mentioning something that makes them uncomfortable? I just watched a magazine do it. So amazing. I mean, it was a total fail, but it was amazing to witness.

I should start from the beginning, shouldn’t I? Okay. Yesterday I cracked open the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly, as I do every Friday evening. I actually still receive the print copy, as I have ever since the magazine’s debut back in…what was it…1990? So I’ve seen a lot of trends come and go within its pages, but never an omission as egregious and blatant as the one in this week’s issue. Read the rest of this entry

Oh, It’s On!

Standard

Happy March! I won’t say “happy spring” because I’m up to my eyeballs in snow and single-digit temperatures. I hope it’s different where you are, but for me…firmly convinced spring will never come. I’ve accepted it: The U.S. Northeast has got itself a permanent winter.

However, something is thawing my frozen heart (if not my frozen nose)… Read the rest of this entry

Cyber Monday Is for Amateurs

Standard

Yeah, I said it. “Cyber Monday”—big woop. How about Cyber Month? Yep, starting today, for the entire month of December, my Hollywood-set rom-com, Unscripted, is on sale for 99 cents, all e-formats. What a deal, and you don’t have to grab it within 24 hours. See? I’m always thinking of you guys.

What’s it like? Like a 4.5-star rating on Amazon and Barnes and Noble, plus it’s #1 on two Goodreads lists: Best Beta Heroes in Contemporary Romance and Tweed: Professor Heroes of Romance. Yes, that means it’s got a hot, low-key college professor. Interested? Our heroine, Faith, sure was.

??????????????

Here’s more info:

Unscripted high resOne of Hollywood’s hardest working women is about to discover there’s a lot more drama behind the camera than in front of it…

Faith “Freakin’” Sinclair probably shouldn’t have called her boss a perv…or grabbed his “privates.” But as creator of the hit dramedy Modern Women, she’d had enough of his sexist insults. Now she’s untouchable in the industry—not in a good way. The only way to redeem herself is to convince Alex, the wildly popular, wildly demanding former star of her show, to come back. But there’s one obstacle in her way—one very handsome, broad-shouldered obstacle…

Professor Mason Mitchell is head of the theater department where Alex is studying “real” acting. The only way he’ll let Faith anywhere near Alex is if she agrees to co-teach a class. It’s an offer she can’t refuse—and as it turns out, the professor just might end up teaching Faith that there’s more to life than work—and that real-life love scenes are way more fun than fake ones….

If you’re up for it, and you have 99 of these…

…then toss ’em Amazon‘s way. Or Barnes and Noble. Or Kobo. Or iBooks. Or Google Books. I’m flexible. :)
