But… something about Gibson, a do gooder attorney who’s the black sheep of the family, and Vanessa, a former exotic dancer just trying to divorce her husband and move on with her life, that pushed me to tell their story. I’m always trying to answer the what-if: what if a woman fell for her divorce attorney? (I actually got this idea from The Golden Girls- when Blanche asks Dorothy who was the first man she slept with after her divorce, Sophia says, “The divorce attorney. It’s always the divorce attorney. It’s the oldest cliche in the book!”)
Talking about Dinner at Sam’s, a little about Brunch at Ruby’s, my post writing, pre publication process and hinting at more vids about writing, indie publishing and establishing community.
I’ve been ready for By the Hour since I read the last word of Off the Clock, so it is no surprise at all, that I clenched my fist and squealed finally!!!! when By the Hour was announced. Ya’ll know me, I’m a Roni Loren stan and she rarely if ever disappoints me. I loved the “real life” characteristics of the hero/heroine and the RAUNCH-EEEE sexy times that happen in this book.
All around, super enjoyable. Another hit for Roni Loren!
Trying to use all of my venues to speak to the people about the writerly things. I decided to hop on YouTube and run my mouth about the book I’m ALMOST DONE WRITINGGGGG.
Click it to watch, and I will record more.
Okay, so first, I’m SO HAPPY I read this book because it is relevant to my current pursuit, which is my WIP, about a woman who used to be a dancer. It was great to read this and get in the mindset of the lifestyle. I’ve already been thinking about going over my WIP and setting the mood and atmosphere right, so this book was so helpful.
“Don’t let your manhood dictate the clients you choose, Gib!”
This book follows Shelly Ellis’ tradition (from the Gibbons Sisters on down) of turning out books full of family drama, sizzling sex scenes and page turning, rapid fire action. I love books that make me want to pop a bag of popcorn to eat while I read. It’s like a Soap Opera, but it’s a book. This entire series is FIRE, and I already need the next book.
“Never sleep with the divorce attorney. It’s the oldest cliche in the book.”
I smiled, knowing this conversation was very slowly moving into an inppropriate exchange between client and attorney. But also not caring.
I haven’t been sharing anything about my new project because I wasn’t (and still am not) sure it was going to take off… but sometimes you just have to put your author pants on (or take them off? Authors don’t like pants!) and stick your neck out there. So I’m sharing a snip today. Hope you like it!
