I am starting NANOWRIMO today. My story is called “Phat like Me” lol. It’s about a woman that was overweight and works out to change everything in her life… she loses the weight, still is awkward and finds out that dating anyone at any size sucks. It’s a comedy.

I do Prime and Twitter pretty much together. I also list ads on craigslist, which I track, and surprisingly I get a lot of clicks from that. I’ve signed up with some blog tours and such. I just signed up with Substance Books. I’m hoping that will make the world of difference.

Tessa and Jake had known each other since infants. But it took one drunken night for them to realize that they were made for each other. The Cowboy's Bride by Danielle Lee Zwissler is one of 2013's sweetest love stories. It takes an arch, a romantic cowboy and a dream of forever for this couple to get together.
Jake Tavers didn't know how much he needed a break until he saw the ad in the paper about the Kids Kare Slave Auction. When he goes down to Kids Kare to place his bid, he meets Lorna...and instantly feels a connection.
