NECRWA Lunch Talk

This past weekend, I had the privilege of speaking at the NECRWA conference. If you are in the New England area, or you might like the idea of a weekend in the Boston area full of craft talk and smart workshops, I highly recommend this regional RWA conference. Next year’s speakers have already been announced, and I’m probably going to …

A new Navy SEAL romance!

I have a new Navy SEAL romance out today, and it’s got a sister book, too! Kat Cantrell and I wrote two stories — they can each be read on their own, but they’re about two brothers, two Navy SEALs, who both find love in a most unexpected week at a resort at Barefoot Bay on Mimosa Key. Does Barefoot Bay …

Fall Fast is FREE for a limited time!

If you’re a newsletter subscriber, you’ll recognize this story! Over Christmas 2014, I wrote a little story. It was a one-night stand between a Navy SEAL and a flight attendant, both stranded at O’Hare Airport due to a snow storm. That story was first published in a short story anthology. And immediately people started asking for the rest of it. Of …

This Book is Too Hot For You To See (or so says Amazon)

This week, two of my SEALs Undone books are on sale. Fall Deep is free, and Fall Fast is 99 cents. This is a series that has been a fan favourite since I started it, and neither of these books have been discounted to these prices before, so I was pretty stoked. And I should say before I derail into …

Writing is damn hard sometimes

See this guy? He’s my inspiration for Dean Foster, the hero in Pine Harbour #5, a book I’ve now written (and re-written) three times. Right now, this smiling GIF is really the only thing getting me through this book. Send wine! And cheese. Man, do I want cheese right now. I’ll blog about the whole process of writing this book …

Molly O’Keefe interviewed me!

I’ve long adored Molly O’Keefe, and this month she gave me the great honour of being featured in her newsletter “The Author Is” profile. You can read the full interview here. I talk about writing, and my next book (an Ainsley Booth book called Prime Minister). Also in her newsletter she mentions that her historical romance, Seduced, is on sale …

Sneak Peek: (Unedited) Chapter One, Love on the Run

I’m wrapping up the first draft of Love on the Run, which should (knock on wood) be out at the end of May. It’s up on pre-order at iBooks, and once I get the edits back on it and know how much revision is needed, I’ll put it up for pre-order everywhere else. (iBooks is really good about shifting the …

So You Want to Make a Book Teaser…

Today’s #MarketingMonday post is for readers, writers and bloggers alike. Making graphics, like a book teaser or a quote card, can really make a review or social media post POP. But the how-to can be daunting for people without any graphic design background. I’m doing a workshop on this at the Romancing the Capital conference in Ottawa this May, so …

Consistency is King #FitnessFriday

So a year ago I started working out…and nothing miraculous happened Unless you count my blood pressure dropping back into the normal range. That was my impetus for hiring a personal trainer: get more active or go on blood pressure medication, my doctor said. Fine. I’ve been an erstwhile runner my entire life, so fitness isn’t completely foreign to me. …
