Author Problems

I've come to the realization that every author is a few fries short of a Happy Meal, or at least I am. Authors are artists, and while we don't paint pictures on canvas, we paint a picture with words. Those words drive us CrAzY, or me, they drive me crazy. While some are better than others, you must know, that we all continue to grow with each book, and every word we pen. There is an art to writing books. In my case...


1. Sitting for endless hours in front of a computer and talking to imaginary characters.


2. Blaming the muse for writing problems.


3. Plot bunnies are real!


4. A deadline will get me moving.


5. I'm easily distracted.


6. I'm easily distracted.


7. I'm easily distracted.


8. Shiny stuff.


9. Facebook.


10. Twitter.


11. Pinterest.


12. Shiny stuff.


13. Blogging.

14. Reading.


15. Deadline approaching.


16. Trying to make deadline.


17. Editing.


18. Exhaustion.


19. Release day!


20. And the process starts all over again.


Need I say more?

Mindsweep Thunderclap Campaign



Mindsweep is coming out October 1st! I'm excited and nervous all at the same time. Lately, I've been trying to discover the best ways to promote. Promo is not my thing, so to find a method that gets results would be priceless. 

Thunderclap intrigues me because it is virtually the easiest way to support someone with very little effort. Click support in one of three ways, or all, Facebook, Twitter, and Tumbler. The supporter doesn't have to do anything else. On the day of the campaign, one post or tweet is automatically inserted into the supporter's feed. Just one. What I like about this is the fact we can support each other and not worry about forgetting or spending precious time writing blogs, scheduling.... It's just that easy. 

As of today, I've reached 17% of my goal, meaning I need 83 more supporters. I would appreciate your help! After this campaigns ends, I will post about how it worked, and whether I would recommend it to you. Any and all stats will be reported.

Please help out by clicking HERE.

BLURB

Angela Davidson lands her dream job with Greco Communications, but quickly learns her new boss, the enigmatic Dominic Greco, has a dark secret he works hard to conceal. Angela understands secrets because she’s been hiding one of her own for sixteen years and if it’s discovered, she will end up dead.

Dominic is part of a group of friends financing the efforts to put a stop to The Madeline Project. The program now has a mind of its own, thanks to a virus called Tommy Twister. These men have power, resources, and money, but they’re as ruthless and possessive as the storms ravaging Earth.

They call themselves the Weathermen…


ADULT EXCERPT

Angela moaned loudly into Dominic’s open mouth as his tongue parted her lips. Holy fuck this man can kiss! Her pussy was soaked, and every inch of her skin ached to touch him. She forgot where they were and pushed closer to his warm, hard body, going so far as to rub her abdomen across his erection. Holy shit. This was nothing like she’d imagined it would be, and she didn’t care if he was her brand new boss, or that they’d just had a two and a half hour lunch. She wanted to be horizontal with him in the worst fucking way.

She’d even take semi-upright. She’d bend over this table and lift her skirt if that’s what he wanted. Fuck it all. It had been way, way too long since she’d been kissed and held, and no man had ever moved his lips and tongue over hers like he was doing now. She wanted more. So much more.

When he released her mouth, she stared at him until he finally picked up her purse and handed it to her. Then he took her hand, and she simply walked, letting him lead the way. Her legs felt like jelly. His hand was so warm it made her entire body hot. She could only imagine what the rest of his skin would feel like next to hers.

They said nothing on the walk back, but she felt the lust and heat coming off him in waves. Inside the elevator, they were alone, and this was the same private elevator she’d taken before her interview. He keyed in a code, and then the floor she now worked on. It wouldn’t stop for anyone else. They had it all to themselves.

He turned toward her, and then he cupped her face and stared into her eyes with so much intensity she thought her heart would stop. “This is madness,” he whispered. “But I can’t stop.”
She didn’t have a chance to ask him what his cryptic comment about this being madness meant because he pushed her up against the wall of the car and kissed her like he might never do so again. She reached for his hair, and he caught her wrists, pinning her arms overhead. The gesture was so damn sexy and dominant that she nearly came. He moved closer to her, grinding his bulge against her body until she was so damn wet she knew she’d need to change her panties.
