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
Yeah, yeah, all right already. Resistance is futile. I caved. I became Borg. I now have a newsletter.
Okay, even though my sixth romcom, Your New Best Friend, publishes in only 10 days (TEN, PEOPLE! THAT’S 1 – 0 !), this idiot author took a break (snerk—you’ll get it if you keep going) and entered to win tickets to the L.A. premiere of Hamilton. Why? Because I’m a longstanding theater nerd and I need to see this musical but I do not have the scratch to nip to New York City for it.
Anyway, if you enter to win by donating to the Immigrants: We Get the Job Done Coalition (a super-worthy cause!), you also get to make a #Ham4All video of yourself singing a song from Hamilton. So, against my better judgment, I did. (WHAT THE…)
Here’s the result. Don’t laugh! Unless you’re old enough to get the ’70s kids’ TV reference I used in the video. If you are, I love you, and you may laugh all you want.
Anyway, go to the Prizeo page and enter/donate, and you too can make a fool out of yourself on video. For a good cause, you understand.
I’m in a void, and it ain’t pretty. No, not the Star Trek kind of black hole, but one that induces the same kind of trepidation—almost, dare I say, panic? There is nothingness. There is blackness. There is the fear of the unknown or, rather, the fear that the hollow nothingness is endless, permanent.
In other words, I’m a writer without a WIP (work in progress).
It’s #ChickLitMay! Otherwise known as Chick Lit Chat’s celebration of International Chick Lit Month! Today we’re teasing our chick lit/romantic comedies by talking about what’s on page 45. And you can enter to win some yummy caramels! Keep reading! 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:
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
It’s official! Got it right here in a pile of pixels to prove it. My fifth romcom, and the third in my small-town Marsden series, Lucky for You, will be published later this year!
And if you haven’t visited Marsden yet, you can do it now—for cheap! The first in the series, Down on Love, is only 99 cents, and the second, Picture This, is $1.99, all e-formats. Get ’em while they’re hot!
Apologies! Apologies all around—I haven’t posted here in forever. All my fault, because I have been working on my next book! Yaaaayyy! But that’s off to the publisher, and now it’s time to turn to other matters.
Like…my two Marsden books are part of Kensington/Lyrical’s January sale! Yaaaayyyy again! So if you like fun, funny, romantic, and heartwarming small-town stories, here are two, for cheap—Down on Love (Marsden #1) is 99¢, and Picture This (Marsden #2) is $1.99, all e-formats. Can’t beat that! So get ’em while they’re cheap, because pretty soon…there’ll be Marsden #3! [Insert evil laugh here.]
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…
