Definitely a busy Valentine’s Day…for romcom writers, that is. And—oh hey, lookit that—I happen to be one! So get on in here and get the rundown! Read the rest of this entry
Hold everything! For 24 precious hours, my Hollywood-set rom com, Unscripted, is the romance Kindle Daily Deal at Amazon! Ninety-nine paltry cents, people!
I don’t want to hear anything about trying to wean yourself off impulse buys—now is not the time! Now is the time to do a one-click buy and start laughing at TV producer Faith’s misadventures and sighing over her love interest, Mason, a hottie college professor. Yes, there may be tweed jackets with elbow patches involved. I can say no more. Go! Find out for yourself!
And here’s more info if you need it:
Once upon a time…
…there were four fairy-tale princesses. They were all very different, but each was very special in her own unique way.
Welcome to this stop on ChickLitChat’s Fairy Tale Fun Blog Hop, part of the ChickLitLove celebration going on all week! Glad to have you here! Let’s talk a princess or two…or how about four? And then I’ll let fill you in on how to win some goodies! Read the rest of this entry
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:
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…
Hey, you’ve gotta break a few eggs to make that fabulous flan, right? Okay, I might be kidding myself, but that’s my theory on why my messy process actually produces books. In any case, welcome to the Writing Process Blog Hop! I was tagged by Lori Schafer last week (read her entry here) and I’ll tag another author at the end of this post.
Want to know how and why I write? Put on your gaiters and let’s wade in! Read the rest of this entry
Seriously, I often feel like poor shaggy-haired, sick-heroine-tending, grilled-cheese-making Mason gets overlooked in my…oeuvre (should I have included a pretension alert before I used that word? oh well—too late), so it’s wonderful to see one of my favorite heroes get some love.
I swear, it’s stuff like this that just turns me all around. TheGirlWhoLovesBooks posted a screen shot of an e-mail blast she received from a noted author (who shall remain nameless) asking for something that beggars belief. Go take a look—it’ll open in a new window. I’ll wait. Read the rest of this entry
Today is Galentine’s Day (thanks, Parks and Recreation!)—a day to recognize female friends. But I kind of want to call it Palentine’s Day, because sometimes a girl’s bestie is a guy. (And sometimes the guy doesn’t even want to sleep with her, nor she him.) So here’s to pals!

Book: By Design
Main character: Emmie Brewster
- Trish, bestie since middle school
Bestie Boost: Provides ready supply of wine, sympathy, and advice when Emmie is distraught over her love life or career; also Trish’s family (husband, two sons) provide perspective (that having a husband and family doesn’t guarantee bliss, but instead instills a different type of chaos)

- Avery, misguided blind date who became gay bestie instead
Bestie Boost: Another shoulder to cry on; love life serves as a reminder that Emmie should be trying to have way more fun than she is; lingerie fashion advisor
Sample advice: “If you don’t at least try on a leopard-print bra, the terrorists win.” Read the rest of this entry
