Who knew I could juggle? Certainly not me. Yet I’m writing another intense romance for Harlequin Presents while Gina and Luke, the heroine and hero of my upcoming RS, sit suspended in danger.
With luck and a lot of work, my first hybrid novel, will release in May. Edging up to that time, I’d love to have a street team in place.
Email me please. I’d love to get my dedicated readers on board first.
More to come next month.
My amazing Harlequin editor offered a two book contract, acquiring Luciano’s and Caprice’s romance in this deal.
Pending title: Bound by The Italian’s Contract.
Release date: July 2014
My November title is available in the UK now. North America readers might only be able to get this title via Kindle or Nook.
The cover is awesome! Check it out!
Innocent of His Claim
“Her past has come back to haunt her… Delanie Tate waits nervously for the man who has torn through her father’s company, consuming along the way her own small business. But she never thought it would be him! The man who ruthlessly commanded her trembling body…who finally shattered her fragile, trusting heart. Marco Vincienta has taken everything he possibly could from Tate Industries – apart from the woman who nearly destroyed him. He needs her for one last thing before he can cut her from his life. If Delanie wants her company back – her life back – she’ll have to do as he asks. ‘A fave author. Gripping and enthralling.’ – Nicola, Graphic Designer, Edinburgh”
At our last romance chapter meeting, one of our members asked the authors at large why we wrote. It’s a good question and one I’ve been asked many times.
I’ve tried to come up with something profound or at least tangible that you can touch and feel. But like the craft itself, writing is many times organic. We do it because there’s something inside us driving us to tell a story.
Many writers are like me. They simply can’t divorce themselves from writing. It is as essential as breathing.
For years and years I wrote fan fiction, often in my head. I was able to rewrite movies and books the way I wanted them to be bd debt that creative energy within me.
The creative bug or writing fever had not fully unfolded from its coccoon. But once it did, I couldn’t not write.
It something I must do to feel good, even though it is often emotionally and physically draining. My emotions are often tightly woven with that character’s and it does take some unwind time to separate from that world.
But writing is my avocation and my addiction. I love it. I have to write. Otherwise, the characters that spring to life in my imagination would drive me crazy.
I wasn’t surprised that the majority of the authors had the same or very similar reasons for writing. Yes, being paid for doing something you love and must do to satisfy that inner urge in a writer is nice. Would I write if I didn’t get paid?
Yes. Maybe not as often or as feverishly, but I would still write.
