An author's rant

Reblogged from :
Click to visit the original post That’s it I quit. As authors we say this quite often.  Not because of the writing aspect, not even because of the editing issues, heck we even can get through the rejection letters like pros. Some find them a cheap alternative to wallpaper. While others find it a mark of a real author to be rejected. Whatever your poison it’s not the writing that makes us want to quit.

I think every author out there can relate to this!! My favorite line:  "Readers please do me a favor, if you read a book and enjoy it, tell at least two people, because your opinion is the best marketing in the world."

Writing News!

It's been such a busy week, but I have been working on a new project that I am really excited about. It's not the project I had originally planned, but as all authors will tell you, sometimes (okay, most times) writing takes on a mind of its own. 
So what is this new project you ask? It's called KNOCKOUT, and as you probably already guessed, it's about boxing, or more specifically, MMA fighting. Check out the description! 
From the wrong side of the tracks…

Growing up Alyson Blake was no stranger to drugs and violence. She learned early on that the only person she could depend on was herself. The only light in her shadowy world was the crush she harbored for a boy who everyone agreed was destined for a future behind bars—her savior, her first kiss, and the only person to ever set her soul on fire. The day the police dragged him away in handcuffs was the day everything changed. Since then she’s managed to lead a quiet, trouble-free life, but when a friend asks her to attend an event where violence and mayhem abound, trouble finally catches up with her.

The one person she can’t forget...

James Weston is the kind of guy dads load up their shotguns for—the kind with tattoos, a bad attitude, and a rap sheet as long as his arm. Known by his fans as “The Judge,” Jamison’s hot temper, lethal fists, and cocky attitude have earned him a reputation both inside the ring and out. He thought he left his past behind when he entered the ring, burying it with women and fighting, but that was before Little Alyson Blake reappeared in his life.

Two paths collide…

After years of separation, Alyson can’t help feeling that this is the perfect opportunity to explore the man who’s never been far from her thoughts. But for Jamison, Alyson is a distraction he doesn’t need, not when everything in his life is finally headed in the right direction. Determined to have him, Alyson does everything she knows how to get him, but when she uncovers a secret behind Jamison’s success that goes beyond his skills behind the ropes, will she be able to accept the truth, or will it be enough to tear them apart for good?
Also, don't forget that Surrender to Love is only 1 1/2 months away, so if you haven't already done so, get your pre-order in today. (P.S. It's on sale!)

After finding herself out of luck and out of love, Patricia Jacobs has written off the male species. No one but her father has ever given her the love and devotion she knows she deserves, and she’s sick and tired of it. Until she collides, literally, with a man whose devastating smile and seductive charm that should be considered illegal, destroys her plans.
He’s everything she’s ever dreamed of in a man: handsome, intelligent, successful, they share a love of cars and best of all; he looks at her like she’s his light in the dark. What more could a girl ask for?

Jonathon Bradshaw, destroyed by a past that has haunted his every waking moment for the last five years, isn’t looking for a serious relationship, until he meets Patricia. Sweet, saucy and as hot as the summer is long, Jon can’t deny the draw he has toward her. For the first time, he has hope. Determined to shake the ghosts of his past, Jon focuses on forging a future with Patti, but he’s always been a master at standing in his own way.

When Jon’s past refuses to be forgotten, will Patti be able to live with the truth about the man who’s stolen her heart?

"We Shall Not Forget"

It's been 12 years and I remember it like it was yesterday. My son was 4 months old to the day when we watched those horrific images on the TV. I remember the pit in my stomach and the pinch in my heart, not only because of all the lives lost that day, but because I knew that my son's future would be forever impacted by this event. To date, none of my three children have known a world without war, and that saddens me more than words can express. 

It is my hope that one day our children and the world will know peace. Today, I will be holding my loved ones a little closer, and I will be keeping the lives of those we lost in my heart and their families in my prayers. 

 "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." ~ George Santayana

Cut! They Cast Who?

Unless you live under a rock, I'm sure you've already heard the news: Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele have finally, FINALLY, been chosen for the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey movie. 

Meet Christian & Ana!
(Charlie Hunnam & Dakota Johnson)

Some people are royally pissed at the choices that have been made. Some are absolutely ecstatic, at least when it comes to the choice for Christian. Most people, however, seem to be in agreement that the choice for Ana just doesn't seem right. I don't know, I see a lot of her mother, Melanie, in that face. This could get creepy. 

But it got me to thinking. Every time I finish a book and send it out to be read and reviewed, I get the inevitable question "Who is your__?" I don't normally write with an idea of WHO my characters resemble. It's sort of an after-the-fact kind of deal. You ask, and I scrounge around the web for the next hour and a half trying to find someone, ANYONE, who will fit the bill. Well, I was proactive this time around. So here are my choices for Jonathon Bradshaw and Patricia Jacobs from Surrender to Love. 

Meet Jon (Henry Cavill)                    &               Patricia (Yvonne Strhovski)

Now, for those of you who have read the Night Calls series, I am interested to know, who is your Poppy and Felix, or Piper and Tate, or Jon and Patti? I'd love to hear your choices!
