Excerpt Reveal from USE SOMEBODY by @BeckAndersonID #Contemporary #Romance

I have a treat for you today - an excerpt from Beck Anderson's upcoming release. Excerpt We stand in a ridiculous line (my opinion) to grab a coffee at the original Starbucks, and Macy pulls out her phone. “Now we’ll take our coffees and go drink them somewhere cool.” She pulls me along back the way we came, hops on the Link again, headed back toward the hotel. “Where is this cool place?” I fight the urge to take the reins. She’s lost. We’re headed nowhere. “Just wait. It’s gonna be cool. I asked the concierge about it before you got up, too, so it’s not just me and Google that thinks so.” We walk a short block in the opposite direction of the hotel, past the gleaming steel and glass public library, which Macy takes several pictures of as we walk. We cross the street, and she walks up to the front doors of a grey stone modern office building. “What?” I feel a little unsettled. I’m the one who does the surprising. “Trust me.” She takes my hand and pulls me in t

Congratulations to @Nancee_Cain on the release of TEMPTING JO! #Paranormal #Romance

Amazon  *  B&N  *  iBooks  *  Kobo In celebration of the release, I asked Nancee my favorite question for authors: If you had to choose one song that best captures the essence of Tempting Jo, what would it be and why?  Her answer: Charlie Puth's "One Call Away" because it captures Rafe's feelings. Forbidden love is hell... Confident and quirky, Jo Sanford thinks her boss is God's gift to women--and she couldn't be further from the truth. Devilishly handsome, Luc DeVille will stop at nothing to lure his administrative assistant right into his arms--and bed. Over Rafe Goodman's dead body... Rafe, Jo's best friend, refuses to sit by and watch as Luc tries to win the heart of the woman he's always protected. After all, Rafe is her guardian angel. Suddenly, Jo's caught in the middle of a battle between good and evil. But the closer she gets to the fire, the hotter it burns. Now, Jo's going to learn that when

Hi. My Name is Nicki, and I'm a Book Quitter #IWSG

I used to be the kind of reader who'd see a book through to the bitter end, even if I didn't like it. I don't do that anymore. There are just too many good books out there waiting for me. I can't waste time on a book I'm not enjoying. I called time of death on the book above at 106 pages in. This is me returning it early. Does this seem like bad form for a writer? Should I have more compassion for the author's efforts and keep on reading even when I'm not having fun? Instead of becoming more lenient on books since I started writing my own, I feel like I have less patience with them. How about you? On a related note - and the thing that has me paranoid this month - I posted a two star review for the book above. As a published author, have I broken an unwritten law? Should I only post reviews for books I can honestly give 3 stars or above? And now for the IWSG question of the month: How do you find the time to write in your busy day? Um, yeah, so
