in Fun Author Tidbits

*wheeeee!!!!* I fell head over heels with this author’s first book in this series All of You (<— my review) and now it looks like we have even more to look forward to in the “Between Breaths series“.

To celebrate the release of TWO of this author’s latest books, she’s sent us over a fun little “author secrets/embarrassing moments/ funny tidbits”. In this one? She was invited to a local book club, (read: her neighbors) to discuss her latest releases (read: sex!!!)

Tee hee!!! Ready?

When my first romance, All of You, released in 2013, a ton of local family and friends were excited to read about my virgin guy Bennett, and that was pretty darn cool.

A couple months later, I was invited to a local book club, most of which were my neighbors, to discuss my release. I was included in their email chain and truth be told, I wasn’t sure how I felt about attending. I’m a shy and introverted person by nature. So it felt kind of awkward for me to join in on a night out where everybody in the room had read my book and would be asking me questions.

I mean, what if they hated it? It was one thing to read one star reviews on-line—you developed a thick skin for those—quite another thing to be in the same room with people who might not exactly have glowing things to say. Especially if these were people I had to see on a regular basis.

But then my neighbor gave me a pep talk. She said, “You’re not going to be on the hot seat! People are just excited to talk to you about your success. You’re like our own local celebrity.”

So I decided to attend until the moment I realized–dun dun dun–that one of the people in this group was my son’s third grade teacher! Not only that, the book club was going to be taking place—ready for this? At her house.


But guess what? I ended up going and it was fun and totally fine. Because hey, romance readers are awesome and passionate and cool. And bonus: we all love reading!

I have two upcoming releases. A male/male romance called There You Stand: Between Breaths, is out April 21st. My adult contemporary romance releases on MAY 5th, and is called Two of Hearts. I’m ready for the hot seat! ;-)

And the author has something else for us! She says:

“I also have an extra Two of Hearts ARC to give away (even internationally) … for an upcoming giveaway… TWO OF HEARTS is a STANDALONE ADULT ROMANCE and is NOT part of the Between Breaths series”


One lucky commenter here will win an ARC of Two of Hearts.

How to enter for a chance to win it? Just leave a comment, and by 10pm EST, Sunday May 3rd 2015, I will randomly select ONE winner for the ARC.

The winner will be contacted and will have 48hrs to respond confirming their mailing address, so if you are picked, do not delay or you will lose your chance. This ebook will be sent directly to the winner by the author.
