C. Lesbirel | Author-Reader Match: SIGHTSEEING IN MANHATTAN + Giveaway!
Author Guest / July 23, 2019

What I Write About: I love to write contemporary romance novels which are deliciously sweet with a sprinkling of sexy. I started out writing with my best friend under the pen name, Autumn Ruby and had tons of fun creating hot military alpahas who feature in our Hot Hero series. Sightseeing in Manhattan is my first official solo publication and I had the best time writing it as I’ve revisited all my of dancing days, which gives the story and characters authenticity and keeps them relatable. About Me: I live in England, UK and I’m basically a country girl trapped in a city life but I’m making it work. By day I’m busy working but luckily I drive a lot so get to sing along to all my favourite country songs which always inspires new stories. I have two daughters who I live for and a hubby who feeds me too much salted caramel and encourages my crazy ideas more than he should, but I love him for it. Fun fact, I have a serious addiction to flamingo’s and will buy pretty much anything if it has a flamingo on it. What I’m looking for in my ideal reader match:…

Lauren Helms | Top 5 Things to Nerd Out to in Boyfriend Maintenance
Author Guest / April 30, 2019

Hello, hello! My new release, Boyfriend Maintenance, might not be about hot gamer boys, but it stays true to my tagline, Nerdy and Flirty. I wanted to highlight a few things I totally nerded out to in the book. There are few definitions for the word nerd, but I like “a single-minded expert in a particular technical field” the best. With that being said, the following topics that are absolutely nerd-worthy from Boyfriend Maintenance… 1) Skee-Ball The popular arcade game is so much fun I have to play it whenever I’m someplace that has it. The carnival, any arcade, the bowling ally (yeah I know, but honestly, I’d rather Skee-Ball than bowl). I don’t remember how my love for Skee-Ball came up in a group chat between myself and the other 425 Madison authors, but somehow I was challenged to write Skee-Ball into my story. Challenge accepted. The whole premise of Boyfriend Maintenance starts and ends with Skee-Ball. 2) Grilled Cheese I love giving my characters a favorite food. The only downfall to this is because I write about the food obsession I end up obsessing about it as well. In this case, Emmy King was utterly in love with…

Leigh Lennon | Author-Reader Match
Author Guest / February 6, 2019

Instead of trying to find your perfect match in a dating app, we bring you the “Author-Reader Match” where we introduce you to authors as a reader you may fall in love with. It’s our great pleasure to present LEIGH LENNON! Writes: I write many different types of romances. I’ve never been able to stick to one of anything. I don’t have a favorite color, I have two or three. I don’t own just one comforter for my bed because that would be too much of a commitment. I don’t marry my purse, I date them. Again, the commitment is too much! So, why would I stick to one genre within romance? My books include humor and back and forth banter. It also contains relevant pop fiction. Some may have angst, where others are sweet. But all my romances include swoon-worthy men who would give their lives for their women. If you like to be surprised at the end of the book and love a powerful hero who’d do anything for his gal, I’m the author for you. My most recent release is coming Jan 31, Must Love Coffee, A 425 Madison Avenue Novel. About: Passionate writer and mother of…
