#SampleSunday: Everything I was looking for and nothing I needed

Good Sunday morning to ya! And a blessed Sample Sunday, when we authors tease and titillate readers with snips of our works in progress. I am pleased to share a sample from Dinner at Sam’s, the followup to Brunch at Ruby’s (yes, FINALLY). I’ve JUST started writing this, so don’t get your hopes up for a pub date soon. But I have started writing it.

For those that don’t remember from Ruby’s, Sam’s Bar & Grille is next door to Lorraine Gladwell Books, the bookstore that Renee owns. Dinner at Sam’s will focus primarily on Vanessa, Maxine’s real estate agent with the husband who was living a double life. Warren Jackson left her and her daughters flat broke and destitute. She needs a divorce lawyer– and fast– but she can’t afford one. She picks up some extra work at her uncle’s restaurant and that is where she meets the man that will change her life.

Let’s get a look at how Vanessa’s life went off the rails. Of course, subject to change (and probably will). Enjoy!

Today I am sharing another snip from my new second chance, loves to enemies… to lovers romance. I hope you’ve picked it up and already enjoyed the story of Preston and Angie who are too stubborn to see that they are still perfect for each other until they’re forced to work together to put on a spectacular event for their closest friends

Aaaaany second now, if it’s not already up, this book will be available in the Kindle store at Amazon! It’s $3.99 for your own personal copy or FREE to borrow if you have a Kindle Unlimited subscription.

In the meantime… or as a teaser… here’s another sneak peek at A Thin Line, a Second Chance, Lovers-to-Enemies-to-Lovers Romance (the really annoyingly long way around).

#SampleSunday- Same Time Next Week: She’s Just a Chick, Right?

Welcome to another Sample Sunday! we are just about two weeks away from the release of Same Time Next Week, so I’m sharing another sample from that project today. It is a LONG Snip in which we meet Rod Phillips, reigning prince of rock and one of Jackson’s oldest friends. This scene takes place after Jackson and Shelby begin dating and Jackson is determined to keep his budding love life under wraps.





Sample Sunday: The Never List

Sample Sunday: The Never List

I have a couple… okay three or four projects rolling around my work space right now. A sequel to Ruby’s, which is still in the planning stages; a book in editing that will hopefully be out mid summer; a couple of ideas brewing and a brand new story that I have been working on called The Never List. Today I want to share a little bit about this story and give my readers a little sample.

Happy Wednesday everyone! I hope all is as well in your worlds as it is in mine! Ruby’s has been out for one week and things are looking good… not STELLAR, but I sold more than one copy of the book, so I choose to be happy about that. I get a few sales a day right now (trickle trickle!) and I have decided to promo a few days a week so that I am not bombarding people with my book and I still get to talk about OTHER people’s books. And writing.
