So wish me luck and I’ll keep you posted!!

Yours, in gaming (!) ~ Peg

Chrys Fey has a new addition to her DISASTER CRIMES series…A FIGHTING CHANCE

Today, one of my favorite WILD ROSE PRESS author/sistahs is sharing some exciting news!!! CHRYS FEY is a prolific writer and she’s got another addition to her Disaster Crimes series for the book reading world!!! Get a gander, here….

Who is Thorn?

He is Beth’s best friend.

He is like a brother to Donovan.

He is the god father to their children.

He is a detective at the Orlando Police Department.

He is in love with Amanda, a survivor of domestic/sexual abuse.

He is a good man who believes women should be treated right. Always.

He fights for the defenseless, the innocent, the victims, the hurt.

He goes after the bad people who hurt those he cares about.

He is laidback and loves to laugh and tease.

He will always have your back.

He is strong but gentle.

He enjoys Thai food.

He’s THORN.

 

*A FIGHTING CHANCE is Book 6 in the Disaster Crimes series, but it’s a spin-off featuring a new couple, so it can be read as a standalone.*

Thorn has loved Amanda from afar, giving her whatever she needs as a survivor of abuse—space, protection, and stability. He yearns to give her more, though, to share his feelings, kiss her, love her, but he’s worried the truth will frighten her away.

And Amanda is afraid. She’s scared of her attraction for Thorn. Most of all, she’s terrified of her ex-boyfriend, who is lurking nearby where no one can find him. When she grows closer to Thorn, Damon retaliates, jeopardizing their happy ending.

Up against an abusive ex and Mother Nature, do Thorn and Amanda have a fighting chance?

EXCERPT:

Amanda looked up from the current list of up-to-date payments for classes. A movement outside the glass storefront caught her eye. She tilted her head to see a man coming up the sidewalk from the side where the picnic bench sat. Through the vertical blinds, she glimpsed a square face—a short, rugged beard and long, dark hair pulled into a man bun. Her breath fled from her lungs. Her body went from icy cold to flaming hot in the span of a millisecond. She dropped to the floor and slid under the counter, beneath the ledge where they put their purses and cell phones.

“What—” Beth peeked at the windows. Then she snapped her fingers at April and pointed at the stools.

April jumped into action. She pushed the stools in so they blocked Amanda. The bell attached to the door jingled as April removed the jacket she wore and draped it across the stools, creating a curtain to shield Amanda.

From a crack, Amanda watched Beth move to stand in front of the twins, who were in their walkers playing peacefully. “I’m sorry, but we’re going to be closing.”

“I don’t give a shit. I’m here for Amanda.”

The sound of Damon’s voice had her heart beating even harder. That voice had haunted her nightmares, had come back to life in her memories.

Beth cocked her head to the side. “Who? There’s no one by that name here.”

“Don’t bullshit me. I know she works here.”

His voice was closer now.

#LongandShortReviews #Wednesdaybloggingchallenge 9.16.2020

So my post today is going to be short and sweet. I’ll explain why in a sec.

Today’s topic is BOOK(S) WITH THE MOST WORDS I HAD TO LOOK UP.

This is so easy.  I am a logophile from waaaaaaaaaaythehell back. My favorite Christmas gift when I was 6? A dictionary. Words just do it for me and I very rarely have to look one up. And since I don’t read SciFi, I’ve never had to struggle through made up words, names, and places.

But…..

When HARRY POTTER hit the world, all those latin phrases, names, and words were a bit much for me, especially since my 8 year old daughter and I were reading it at the same time and she kept asking me what different things meant.
I hadn’t a clue. Latin wasn’t my thing in college.

So, that’s my post for the day. Hee hee

Let’s see what some of the other authors in this challenge, and probably the ones who read SCI Fi the most, have to say: L&SR

Hey! Did you know I’ve got a new book releasing on 1014.2020? It’s  Holiday RomCom titled MISTLETOE, MOBSTERS, & MOZZARELLA and it’s up for preorder right now, here: MMM

If you like books with strong female heroines, hot cops, food and family, AND you like to laugh, this is the book for you.

Just sayin’. Hee hee

Until next time, peeps, ~Peg

#MondayMusing On why I don’t write about certain stuff…

 

Honestly, my topic titles these days are getting weirder.

Anyhoo…

There are certain blog  and social media topics I won’t write about. One of them is my immediate family. I know I’ve posted things concerning something my daughter said, or an event I attended with my husband, and when I have it is with their permission . But there is an awful lot I keep silent on concerning my family and loved ones because they didn’t asked to be used as creative fodder.

I respect that. Even though I am not famous, I have always had a soft spot for kids and family members of celebrities. Most of them did not ask to be famous –  their parent(s) did. It must be hard to live in the shadow of someone super-famous if you don’t aspire to that kind of attention and lifestyle.

I’ve always said I would like to be rich, but not have to do anything publicly in order to be so. I just want to win the lottery! heehee

Privacy is a big thing with my family members and I will continue to abide by their wishes because my career could go the way of the dinosaur tomorrow, but my family is with me forever.

Another topic I am loathe to comment on (but do at times when I am angry) is politics. I’d rather comment on the world status than name/shame/denigrate any political so-called leaders who are in reality, as far from leaders as is possible.  But I will call out injustice. illegality, racism,  homophobia and anything human rights-abuse related and name names, and I don’t give a fiddler’s fart if someone who doesn’t agree with me is mad about it and blocks/unfriends/unfollows me. Sometimes you have to draw a line in the sand and call something out for the evil it is and then live with the ramifications of your actions.

Just sayin’.

I don’t write about sex topics on my blog – which is ridiculous considering I write romantic fiction. But I’d rather keep my sexy talk contained in my books than splashed all over social media in comment sections.

So, that’s what I’ve been musing on this Monday….

Until next time, peeps ~ Peg

#Release day for VANILLA WITH A TWIST!!

Release days are always exciting for authors, this one no exception! The one difference with the release of VANILLA WITH A TWIST is that it’s the first time I ever had a preorder sale, with the book’s price going back to normal on release day – today. It will be interesting to see how many people took advantage of the preorder lower price!!!

I’m so thrilled to be part of the Wild Rose Press’s One Scoop or Two ice cream series. Vanilla with a Twist is a short read novella, and it’s a sweet romance  about a small town gal who lives by her own rules and works herself to the bone to provide a good life her her teenaged son and herself.

Tandy Blakemore was one of my favorite heroines to write – she literally burst onto the page, fully formed. I wanted to give her an HEA worthy of her and I think I did. I hope the readers feel that way, too.

So, if you pre-ordered your copy, check your kindle today and happy reading!!!! And if you like the book after you’ve finished it, please consider writing a review for either Goodreads or Amazon. Word of mouth and reviews really do help authors find new readers. SO, welcome to Beacher’s Cove, NH and Tandy Blakemore’s ice cream parlor, VANILLA WITH A TWIST.

#sundaysnippet 5.10.2020


First of all, Happy Mother’s Day to all the wonderful moms, mothers, and mammas out there!

I would be remiss if I didn’t put up a little something about a mom, now, wouldn’t I?

Here’s a little interaction between Abby Laine and her mom Hannah from my first romantic suspense A PRIDE OF BROTHERS: RICK.

Enjoy.

“Rick’s going to drive you home,” Hannah told her as she helped her daughter into the T-shirt and sweat pants she’d brought from her apartment while Rick waited outside the room. “I’ll let you get all settled and rest a bit before I descend on you again to help out.”

“Mom, I’ll be fine,” Abby said. “You don’t need to hover.”

“I’m not hovering.” Hannah held Abby’s shoes as her daughter slipped into them. “I’m concerned about you.”

“You don’t need to be,” Abby replied instantly. “I’ll be fine on my own.”

Hannah stood upright, fisted her hands on her hips, and tossed Abby the same glare Grandma Sophie used to. “Of course you will,” she said with a shake of her head. “And even if you weren’t, you’d never tell me otherwise, but—” She raised a hand as Abby started to speak. “Pretend you need some looking after anyway, will you? If for no other reason than to make your old mother feel useful, okay?”

“Mom.” Overcome, Abby reached her arms out. Hannah moved into them and slipped her hands around her daughter’s waist. With her head on her mother’s shoulder, Abby said, “You’re not old, and you’re always useful. I’ll always need you.”

Hannah chuckled and sniffed. Pulling back, Abby was surprised at the tears swimming in her mother’s beautiful and expressive eyes.

“You know,” Hannah said, “that’s the first time since you were eleven years old you’ve told me you need me for something. I have to admit, I’ve missed hearing it all these years.”

Mom.” Abby swiped her hands down her mother’s arms and held her hands. “I haven’t been the best daughter.”

“Well…” Hannah grinned. “It certainly wouldn’t kill you to call more often, that’s the truth.”

Abby laughed, then winced. “Ow.” She braced a hand over the bandage under her sweats.

“Of all my girls, you’re the one with the tightest lips,” Hannah said, glancing down at her daughter’s hand, then back up to her face. “And the softest heart.”

Abby rolled her eyes. “Don’t let any of my colleagues hear you. I have a reputation as a hard-ass.”

“Abigail June.”

“Uh-oh. Now I know where Kandy gets that tone.”

“I know why you keep things so close,” Hannah said. “Why you’re so tightlipped and never want anyone to worry, but Abby, you’re my daughter. Whether you tell me to or not, I’ll always worry about you. I love you with all my heart.”

Her own eyes now filling, Abby nodded. “I love you, too. I know I don’t say it enough, and I’m sorry for that. I need to say it more. Show it more.”

“Actions are always better than words,” Hannah said with a grin, “so I’ll be expecting more phone calls in the future. And speaking of actions,” she added when Abby smiled at her, “Rick’s actions have been screaming.”

Abby went stone still. “What’s that supposed to mean?”

Intrigued? Here’s where you can get a copy to read the entire encounter …and book!

Until next time ~ Peg

A visit with #author Judith Hudson

 

Today is a treat for me – and you as well! I’ve got one of my Romance Gems sistahs, Judith Hudson visiting me. She’s got a new 3 book boxed set out and she’s here telling us all a little about it.

Take it away, Judith….

Looking for feel-good escapist reading? Friendship, family and happily-ever-after. That’s how I describe this small-town romance series set in the Pacific northwest in the town of Fortune Bay.

It all starts with a ramshackle cabin on the lake – complete with an interfering ghost, landlord’s Aunt Augusta. In each book, the cabin proves to be a haven for people at the crossroads of their lives.

The series has grown beyond these first three books, the intertwining stories of three friends, but in my mind they are the heart and soul of the Fortune Bay series and it just felt right to put them out together in this three-book boxed set – new this spring!

Book one is Summer of Fortune
Maddie wasn’t looking for romance when she moved to Fortune Bay for the summer. She was just glad to find a place to stay that she could afford, where she could set up her dark room and work on the photographs for her first solo show.
A troubled childhood had left her a loner. It was just easier that way. But now for the first time she was finding the loneliness hard, since her daughter had gone and live with her father for the summer.
Maddie wasn’t expecting to meet a group of people who would change her life – and definitely not her landlord Jake Murphy, a single father himself, who just might teach her that she could have it all, friendship, family and happily ever after.

Book two, The Good Neighbor, is Maddie’s neighbor Frankie’s story, and it’s Sean who moves into the cabin this time.
Frankie’s life is going just fine, thank you very much. She has a lovely house on Majestic lake and a good job teaching at the local high school. What she doesn’t need is Sean Murphy moving in next door and shaking things up. He seems like just the kind of charming young exec her father would approve of – a black mark against him in her eyes.
What she doesn’t see are the demons Sean is hiding, the daughter he gave up as a teen who he’d give anything to find today.

Book three, Home For Christmas, it’s Louise’s turn.
Louise is coming home for Christmas, but just for Christmas. She has finally gotten out of Fortune Bay and now that her pastry course is finished, her future awaits her in Seattle, a long way away from her old job at the Fortune Bay Cafe.
Her old friend Blue has moved on too – he can’t wait forever, hoping she’ll see how much he cares. Growing up, he was her shoulder to cry on, but he’s moved on too.
But, with Christmas festivities swirling around them, Louise’s live take a sharp turn. Can Blue really turn his back on her now, when her whole future is at stake?­

Get this three-books-in-one introduction to the series. You might end up feeling like the reader who said – “I want to live in Fortune Bay!”

Judy Hudson

A little about Judy….

Judy grew up in Toronto Canada and St. Louis MO, then moved to the Pacific Northwest where she now lives on beautiful Vancouver Island.

Her romantic women’s fiction series, Fortune Bay Books, is set in the Pacific Northwest. In each book, someone at a crossroads of their life moves into a ramshackle cabin on Majestic Lake where they work through their problems with the help of friends and family, and the occasional nudge from the friendly spirit of Aunt Augusta. If a romance grows in the process, and it always does, well, so much the better.

As an landscape artist and photographer, the setting of the story is very important to Judy. “I’ve painted in the area for many years and I think it helps me make the setting real for the reader, helps draw them into the story. My characters are often artists, like Maddie, the darkroom photographer in Summer of Fortune who is at Fortune Bay for the summer to work on her first professional show, and Stephanie, the widowed matriarch of the clan who is finding a new life as a painter.”
