Keep warm this winter with #LOVE. Jeepers It's January #Giveaway


Welcome to the 2nd annual Jeepers It's January Giveaway Hop hosted by The Kids Did It and The Mommy Island.  My theme for this hop is - keep warm this winter with LOVE.

Don't you just LOVE a new romance? Does it make you want to dance? Maybe it's because we know everyone has to overcome some sort of hurdle - whether external or internal - to be able to take that leap into LOVE. In the three stand-alone novels of The It Series, each main character is a young urban professional who pushes LOVE to the sidelines only to discover it's all that matters.

In WHEN IT HITS YOU, Lyssa Bates thinks she can replace men with electronic toys.
(Special release pricing of only 99 cents until Valentine's Day!)

In WHEN IT HOOKS YOU, Trish Cerise sets a 3-date limit on her LOVE life.

In WHEN IT HOLDS YOU, Cliff Walsh vows to keep his romances digital-only.

My prize is a $5 gift card to Amazon that you can use toward whatever you LOVE.

Also, everyone who enters by subscribing to my author e-mail list will receive a free e-single prequel to The It Series!

The Rule I Wish I'd Never Heard #IWSG #amwriting

Hi friends! Welcome to the first Insecure Writers Support Group meeting of the new year.

What has me insecure this month is that I wasn't able to return any blog visits last month. Every day I expected to find time to do it, and every day ended in failure. You see the problem, right? I expected to "find" time - when does extra time ever just jump out and shout howdy? Never. I need to make time. And that's what I vow to do this year, starting...NOW.

I'm also in anxiety mode this month over my upcoming release. The It Series will be complete on January 25! I'd love some support on this Thunderclap if you're willing & able. Thank you! And now on to this month's question...

 What writing rule do you wish you’d never heard?

Hmm...I've thought and thought about this, and I can't come up with one that I'm not glad to have learned. Maybe I just haven't learned enough of them yet to have found one I wish I didn't know. But sometimes, when I'm reading for fun and a book is driving me bananas because of excessive adverbs or passive writing or using waaay too many words to get the frigging point across, I wish I could unlearn all the rules and just enjoy the dang book. How about you - do you ever find that knowledge of the "rules" detracts from your reading enjoyment?
