Fresh FIction Box Not To Miss

Sammy’s heart sank. Could this day get any worse? She’d hoped to spend more time with her old neighbor, but she resigned herself to the fact that the timing apparently wasn’t meant to be. Maybe it never had. Sammy’s mind wandered to Mayor Allen, his wife, Connie, and Carter too. With Carter abroad at school, she hoped his parents’ sharing what she had uncovered about his sister’s death wouldn’t cause him to want to come home. What w...

What inspired me to write about the first female SEALs? It’s actually a multi-part answer: –First and foremost, the #MeToo movement made me want to revisit the idea of women finally breaking through the last all-male bastions left in the U.S. military. There are only a few career fields women haven’t entered yet, and the SEALs are arguably the most visible one of those. –Second, I wanted to put it out there in the universe, for yo...

Welcome back to Fresh Fiction! Can you tell us about your new End of the Line series, and the first book, The Friend Zone? I got inspired to write the “End of the Line” series after seeing the Netflix documentary Last Chance U. I loved the idea of a junior college that gave Division 1 football players a second chance at the NFL or to play for a Division 1 school again after they’d screwed up their scholarships. I chose football because wh...

From Zane’s Point of View “You want to know how a werewolf realizes when they’ve found The One, that one-in-a million soul mate that’s supposed to be out there for all of us?” Zane Kendrick repeated, sure he must have heard the question wrong. When the woman sitting across the table from him nodded, all he could do was stare, not sure how this situation had turned so personal. Zane had arrived at the SWAT compound that morning thinking ...

Let’s get real for a second: paranormal romance readers are looking for something unique. We all love classic paranormal tropes, but in recent years, the true treasures among the genre have taken those classic elements and turned them on their head. Likewise, if you’re a western romance reader, you’re looking for the sexy tried and true cowboys you love but with an extra special, fresh twist. So what if I told you that you could have the be...

Guests / July 21, 2006

I’m so late, but hey, it’s still the same month! Got a chance to go with the DFW Tea group to the the Will Clarke launch of his latest — THE WORTHY, A GHOST’S STORY — at the Lincoln Park Barnes and Noble in Dallas. A very healthy crowd of people were there to greet Will and get their mitts on the latest. Although, this book was actually written ten years ago it is very in the vogue. THE WORTHY is the story ...

I emphasize the THREE DAYS because it is a grueling but exhilarating experience. However, our Miss Gwen is the one who attracted all the eyes — in this case Captain Jack Sparrow — the swaggering sea worthy! We’re not s...

For whatever reason the photo option is not working right today so I can’t include book covers. It SAYS the pictures are loading, but they’re not. So anyhow, here we go with the real post. You’ll have to imagine your own book covers. LOL Let’s see, what have I read in the past week or so? In paper, I finished The Grail King by Joy Nash, due out in August. Very good book, sequel to Celtic Fire. I also finished Bab...

What are you reading?
Guests / May 29, 2006

I’ve not been doing very good about keeping up on this. LOL Currently I am reading Here with Me by Holly Jacobs (due out in July) in print and A Mistress for Marcos by Ellen Ashe (due out June 23) in eBook format. So far both are very good, but I have yet to go wrong with anything by either of these two authors. In audio format I am listening to Once a Thief by Michelle Hauf and Dragondrums by Anne McCaffrey. Both of these are ver...

Guests / May 1, 2006

Since my VPN isn’t working tonight, I won’t be checking my email at work. What better thing to do than to update ya’ll on my current reading. As I sit here in the foothills of the Rockies outside of Denver there is a sign in the grass on the other side of the parking lot that says “Beware of Snakes. Enter at your own risk.” So, that means I won’t be going on a walk to get rid of some of the Cuban food...
