The Island – rewritten!

duo

I cannot begin to express how excited I am getting about this duet. I’m 4 chapters away from having my first draft of book one done, and on to the next! It’s been so much fun going in and playing with this story, adding more to it, adding in Michael and Gabe’s perspective – and I cannot wait to share it!

Since the book is written and all I have to do is rework it – I expect to publish by late February – early March. Stay tuned for details! ♥

 

On Finding a Tribe

adult-backlit-bottles-697244

There’s been a lot of drama this week in Romancelandia otherwise known as #cockygate, that has extended itself to the rest of the Indie Author world and beyond. I won’t rehash it. I won’t give her any more of my energy.

The one thing that rang out to me in this mess was the Open Letter to Faleena Hopkins on Cassie Sharp’s blog. She spoke of finding your tribe. Your group of people you can celebrate with, mourn with, scream with, cry with and vent with. Your “safe space” where you can say anything without fear.

I learned this early on in my publishing journey. That other indie authors were not my competition. That if we lift each other up, and support each other – we all win. My tribe started with me and one other indie. It was small and lonely, but we had each other. Then we formed a group – and I had my tribe. We all clicked from day one. The level of trust we’ve formed is awesome and it’s become one of my favorite parts of my day to connect with the ladies of the KB 101 tribe.

To my tribe – thank you. Thank you for letting me vent, cry, celebrate – without fear.

I can’t tell you how to find your tribe. I can tell you to join groups and be active and engage in them. If you click with someone – reach out! Don’t be shy, don’t feel weird – reach out because you never know what kind of magic can happen when a group comes together and shares their collective knowledge.

Ingredients: one seriously hot chef for a boss + one sassy employee who always says what’s on her mind = an unexpected and flirty romance about trying to resist the irresistible

Finn King. He’s sexy, single, successful and hotter than anything that comes out of his kitchen. His focus lies on the perfection of his food, and on becoming a celebrity chef. Women and love aren’t on his list of priorities until in walks Hailee with her smart mouth, flaming red hair and who challenges him at every turn. When one accidental kiss turns his world upside down, he’s left questioning everything he thought he wanted in life.

Hailee Ferris only wants one thing – to get out of the small town she’s felt trapped in her whole life. She’s done with men, dating, and love after her fiancee left her for another woman who happened to be her best friend. When she lies to get the job at Finn’s restaurant to save enough money to move away, the one thing she was counting on was falling for her boss. With his model good looks, arrogant smile and cool demeanor – now his cooking isn’t the only thing heating up the kitchen.
