GIVEAWAY: End of Book Shit James and Harper

GIVEAWAY: End of Book Shit James and Harper

This series started out as a novella for The BEND Anthology with the seven other Erotica Consortium writers. If you’ve been reading me for a while, you know what happened. If you’re new, the book was banned by Amazon for violating “content guidelines”. Whatever that means. But regardless, my little contribution to that book was a very convoluted story that set up two new characters—James and Harper. Both James and Harper have secrets and in this first book you learn none of them. This probably drove some people to hate the story and stop reading, but that’s OK. I planned it that way. Because this was a series about assassins, shadow governments, and none of these people were “the good guys”. If the line between right and wrong was a bit blurred in Rook & Ronin, then this book has a clear line right down the middle and all of… Read more »

GIVEAWAY: End of Book Shit Spencer and Veronica

GIVEAWAY: End of Book Shit Spencer and Veronica

Spencer is in every single book in the Rook & Ronin series. He comes in late in Tragic, but boy does he make an impression. He scoops Rook up when she needs a friend, and just when you start to think this might turn into a triangle, Spencer Shrike does a 180. He’s not what he appears to be. But then again, that was the whole point of the series. Sometimes when I’m writing a later book in a series I recall a little detail in an earlier book that changes everything about the story. This happened with Spencer and Veronica in Bomb. That novella is supposed to be the first book about Spencer, but instead it introduced Veronica the Bombshell Bomb—Spencer’s long-time love-interest who has been dumped. In Bomb I start from the beginning and take you back in time to the day Spencer first saw Veronica on their… Read more »

GIVEAWAY: End of Book Shit Ford and Ashleigh

GIVEAWAY: End of Book Shit Ford and Ashleigh

Slack and Taut. Most people didn’t get the titles until a year later when I wrote about it in another End of Book Shit. But everything I do in a story has a purpose and these titles are no exception. Slack is Ford going off the rails as he tries to deal with Christmas Eve. He takes a few hits for his team, even for an outside affiliate from his teen years, called Merc. And he meets one of the most memorable characters I’ve ever written. The twelve-year-old La-Femme-Nikita-in-training, Sasha Cherlin. Slack is a deep book. It got a lot of mixed reviews when it came out because Ford was not a very likable guy in this book. He’s struggling with who he is, what he wants, and how he can get there. He’s not with a girlfriend, so it’s not really romantic. But he forges a new friendship with… Read more »

GIVEAWAY: End of Book Shit Rook and Ronin

GIVEAWAY: End of Book Shit Rook and Ronin

This series changed my life. Tragic was my first book that broke the Amazon Top 500 in May of 2013 and I knew that was a game changer. People were buying my book! And not only that, they seemed to like it. Tragic was the first indication that I might be good at this writing stuff. I might just be able to find a place in this self-publishing world. I might have stories to tell that would inspire people. So when I finished Tragic, I paused to ask myself, “What do I like to read?” And I had no answer. I dunno. I just know it when I read it. But then I was sitting around watching TV one day and Ocean’s Eleven was on. And holy fuck, I just love that movie. So I asked myself, Why? What about that movie makes me love it? And my answer was—those… Read more »

Welcome to End of Book Shit – Take 2 Giveaway Week

Welcome to End of Book Shit – Take 2 Giveaway Week

I don’t write a lot of personal posts on this blog for some reason. I mean, I can. It’s my blog. I started it from page one. I’ve had help from Kristi, Leah, and Amber over the past year. But sometimes I think they help because they love me. Like, as a person. They want to help. And I appreciate them, and I hope they feel that appreciation, because I do try and show it as often as I can. But New Adult Addiction was just a flash idea I had back before I ever published my first book in 2012. I wanted to write new adult. I wanted to tell stories about that age group where everything was so hard and confusing, you couldn’t help but make mistakes. Because that’s how my life was as a new adult, and I thought a lot of people could relate to it…. Read more »

Cover Reveal: The Probelem With Heartache

Cover Reveal: The Probelem With Heartache

About The Problem With Heartache The problem with heartache is that there’s no one-size-fits-all relief package. You can go to classes; you can try to embrace change. But when you wake up at two in the morning, a smile on your face because you’ve dreamt about the could have—the should have—nothing will console you. Because seconds later, you remember. And remembering can rip you apart. *** Kate will do anything for her family. It’s why she took the job with Lee. It’s why she’s attempting to forget her pain. But it’s hard to forget, when you’re desperate to hold on. Even if Lee Collins is the perfect package. Lee will do anything for the ones he cares about. It’s why he hired Kate. It’s why he keeps his secrets; and it’s why he cannot, will not fall in love. Not with Kate—not with anyone. Ever. The one thing he can’t… Read more »

GIVEAWAY and EXCERPT: A Hot Winter by C.J. Lake

GIVEAWAY and EXCERPT: A Hot Winter by C.J. Lake

EXCERPT “All right, honest conversation,” she said after a moment that was quiet, but rife with tension. “Yes. I was flirting with you in the store–but only because I never thought I’d see you again.” “You never wanted to see me again?” He sounded somewhere between incredulous and insulted. “Damn, Emma!” “No, no,” she clarified, rapidly shaking her head, “this is coming out wrong. I just meant I thought you were a random handsome guy with a hot body, end of story.” Every male impulse in him intensified when he heard those words. Handsome? Hot body? This was definitely going to happen. “I never knew you’d end up working at my house…and driving me crazy everyday,” Emma mumbled partly under her breath. Still, Matt heard every word. And he was itching to grab her. He stepped closer–close enough for their bodies to touch. Finally. His cock stiffened as his chest… Read more »
