Max Harper
I make sexy, sexier.
When a woman is on my arm, you can bet your life she suddenly becomes a hundred times more appealing to everyone else around. Why? Because I’m shit hot and I make them look shit hot, too.
There’s no doubt about it, I’m an arrogant hunk with an impressive six-pack.
I’m not looking for love. I’m not looking for money. I’m just looking for a hot woman to stroke a few things—my ego being one of them.
I choose my women like I choose my wine—if she doesn’t smell fruity or look rich, she’s got no chance.

Brooke Knight
I make sexy, sexier.
When a man or woman is on my arm, you can bet your arse they suddenly become a hundred times more appealing to everyone else around. Why? Because I’m sexy as shit and I make them look sexy as shit, too.
There’s no doubt about it, I’m a sexy, powerful woman with an impressive pair of legs.
I’m not looking for love. I’m not looking for money. I’m just looking for a hot man or woman to stroke a few things—my ego being one of them.
I choose my prey like I choose my perfume—if they don’t smell sweet or look expensive, they’ve got no chance.

They’re both egotistical, powerful people with uncontrollably intense sexual appetites.
But, what happens when two forces collide because they want the same thing, the same woman? I’ll tell you what happens—mighty, sexy things.

Christmas Holiday Blog Share #FreeBook #Giveaway

Merry Christmas, my friends! I trust that you are enjoying the festivities of the season, and today it is my turn to feature on the Winter Wonderland Holiday Blog Share, hosted by Mary Martinez. Have you entered the competition to win your $60 Amazon gift card? Details are at the bottom of this post.



This year I am especially excited to celebrate Christmas. We have had a challenging few years as a family, with several dramatic events unfolding, and lots of health issues to deal with. While many of these are ongoing, it seems that we are reaching a point where we can begin to relax and know that everything is falling into place. We have had to adapt to new habits, new experiences, and new people, but we keep going, and more importantly, we stick together.

Christmas for me is about celebrating with family and friends, catching up on lost time, taking a break from work, and enjoying a chance to treat ourselves with good food, a few gifts, and a chance to party. For me it is not religious. I mix it with my Winter Solstice celebrations in keeping with my Celtic pagan heritage, but I grew up in a Christian family, so old habits will prevail. We visit the local church for special services, and we do enjoy Christingle. What does Christmas mean to you? Do you celebrate the festival, or is it just another day?



Competition Time

Don’t forget to leave your comment below, and today I am offering you a FREE copy of my seasonal short story, Christmas with the Vampires.  


Enter the Rafflecopter to win your Amazon gift card, and check out our next author tomorrow using the link on my homepage. Enjoy, and Seasons Greetings!

Christmas is Calling #amwriting #writers #indie

It is the time of year where I take stock of my work and begin to step away from the computer for some well-earned rest. I have been very busy! 2017 saw me take huge leaps forward in my self-publishing journey, and I finally feel like I might start seeing a positive response from my efforts. In fact, I might even begin to find that elusive audience I have been seeking for all these years…


Add to that the release of 3 new books during the past six months, the development of three more, and lots of other smaller projects, and you can see why I am exhausted. It hit me all of a sudden earlier this week. I think it is time for me to sit back and catch up on reading for a change. I am currently battling my way through The Shining by Stephen King – it’s a great book, but I am struggling with such a hefty tome right now. But I will not be beaten. It is ironic that I began the year reading a book by Stephen King (On Writing), and I end the year reading one of his books. Merry Christmas!

Guest Feature: Tie Died by Kathryn E Jones #ASMSG

Today I welcome Kathryn E Jones to my blog, with her new book, Tie Died: A Brianne James Mystery. You can find Kathryn in the upcoming Winter Wonderland Holiday Bog Share this December. 



Synopsis
When 18-year-old Brianne James discovers a murdered young girl at Montgomery Park – a 15-year-old who has been left for dead in the icy snow – there is only one thing she can do: search for the killer.
Brianne has a nose for sleuthing. She can connect with people; even scary people like Jordan Elspie. She has the smarts to solve even the most underhanded crime, and she can solve it with or without the help of the police or her parents.
When it comes to Conner Ryan, however, his unrelenting assistance is quite another story. When you’re in love with one of the hottest guys in school – who in the heck cares?

Excerpt: Frozen
I remember the day I found her. She was lying by the stream in Montgomery Park, where I always go when I'm out running, just lying there as if taking a nap. But it was November in Utah and it was odd that someone would be taking a nap in the snow. The water itself – was practically frozen, white glossiness covering most of the stream where I'd dipped my toes in just this past summer. The leaves were already gone from the trees and I felt suddenly as if I was somewhere I shouldn't be. My skin was cold and yet I didn't shiver as I looked down at the girl wearing the red running shoes.
She must have been running because she wore sweat pants – dark black with a white stripe down the legs, a tie dyed sweat shirt – and a scarf, still around her neck. It looked like wool. Her eyes were open – brown – and her hair, blond – no, more like a light brown with golden highlights. It lay crusted against the snow, glued to it almost; fanned out like the sun.
I didn't scream.
I reached for my cell phone in my back pocket and dialed the police, all the while watching the girl, her skin a light blue, her lips – white. How long had she been there? How had she been killed? Why had she been killed?
And then I looked at the bottom of her shoes. There was no mud. No snow. They were as clean as paper that hadn't been written on yet. The path was at least 20 feet from this frozen stream. She could never have jumped that far.
There were no tire tracks. Just one set of footprints coming to the stream and then away from it. They were large, much larger than her own and had diamond shapes on the bottom. . .
"Hello, Hello?"
"Oh, yes, sorry.”
"Do you have something to report?"
"Yes. Yes. . . I found a girl at Montgomery Park. She's dead.”

Have I Outgrown #NaNoWriMo?

We have passed the halfway point for #NaNoWriMo 2017, and I have to say I am really not engaging with it. My novel has not yet reached 20,000 words, I find lots of distractions keeping me away from my manuscript, and I simply cannot be bothered with it this year. I wrote about it yesterday on my SpookyMrsGreen blog, and one of the comments gave me food for thought: have I outgrown NaNoWriMo?  


 I already know the answer to that question: yes! You see, I don’t need the monthly wordcount challenge to force me to write my books. Since I first joined NaNoWriMo back in 2011, I have written about a dozen novels that are in various stages of editing. I have published half a dozen novels and short stories, along with hundreds of blog posts on various platforms. I don’t need NaNoWriMo anymore, and I feel a little bit sad. But mostly I feel relieved. I will still write my novel, of course. It has been requested by my loyal fans, and I cannot disappoint them. But I will do it in my own time, when I feel ready. Enjoy your month, my friends! Do share your thoughts about NaNoWriMo in the comments below.

The Carrero Effect by LT Marshall #ASMSG #erotic #romance

Today I welcome LT Marshall to my blog, sharing her novel The Carrero Effect




Blurb

Emma Anderson has everything in her life worked out. She has her perfect job in a Manhattan empire allowing her to live a quiet and organised safe existence. A necessity to her, after a childhood filled with bad memories, abuse, and a mother who was less than useless. But, with it comes a problem, one that could derail everything she thought she needed in her life. Her promotion sends her straight into the close employment of young, gorgeous, playboy billionaire, Jacob Carrero with his formidable reputation for being a player. Stuck as his right-hand man, every waking moment of every single day, she realises he is exactly the type of person who could drive her crazy, and not in a good way.

Like chalk and cheese, he is everything she's not. Compulsive, confident, laid back, dominant and fun, with a seriously laid back attitude to casual sex and dating. Jake is the only one with an ability to steamroll over her manicured ice maiden exterior, who is not phased by the closed in demeanour and cool manners, but as much as she wants to, letting him in is another thing entirely. A past that made her man wary and no desire to ever let one close enough to hurt her again, Jacob Carrero has his work cut out. He is not someone who takes NO for an answer and will have to learn how to break through if he wants more than the mask she shows the world. Jake needs to show her that even someone like him can change when that one girl that matters breaks through.

 Loveable sexy characters and deep emotional topics. Contains some mature, adult content and language.

Vampire of Blackpool Paperback Edition #NaNoWriMo #ASMSG

Have you read Vampire of Blackpool yet? If you are not familiar with my favourite Victorian seaside resort in the North of England, this book might open your eyes a little bit… and now I am proud to announce that the paperback edition is ready to order! It took me a while since this project has been very much a “learn as you go” adventure. I am happy enough with the outcome, and I have learned my lessons for future self-publishing plans.



For #NaNoWriMo this year I am writing a sequel to Vampire of Blackpool. It wasn’t my intention when I wrote the book, but several readers have informed me that they are waiting to see what happens next. I cannot disappoint them, now, can I? Admittedly I am off to a slow start because my mind is currently elsewhere, but I aim to knuckle down, get writing, and catch up as soon as I can. The sequel will be written! For now, you may enjoy Vampire of Blackpool in paperback or eBook editions.

Happy Halloween! Are You Ready for #NaNoWriMo?

Boo! Scared you!

Ha ha, yes we are celebrating my favourite time of year, Halloween, or Samhain as I prefer to call the festival. See my pagan housewife blog for more about that.


Today I am hosting a Halloween party for my daughters and their friends, so we have decorated the house, stocked up on treats, planned the games and got our fancy dress ready. At the weekend we attended a big family party in our town and it was lots of fun as always.

  

Halloween heralds the arrival of another annual event that has become a staple in my life: #NaNoWriMo. Are you participating this year? Shall we be writing buddies? Look me up if you like, my NaNo name is SpookyMrsGreen. I haven’t really planned for the event this year since I’ve been busy with domestic challenges. I was going to use this NaNoWriMo as the opportunity to write book 6 in my Redcliffe Novels series, but I got a bit overexcited and already started writing that at the beginning of October. Instead I have decided to start a brand new novel, the sequel to Vampire of Blackpool. I have no idea where it is going or what will happen. I am a true pantser. Here’s to #NaNoWriMo 2017!
