Welcome to this blog hop.

What is a blog hop? Basically, it’s a way that readers can discover new authors, because with bookstores closing and publishers not promoting new authors as much, we need to find a way to introduce readers to authors they may not see in their local bookstore.

Here you have the chance to find new authors. Here you’ll find information about me, what I’m working on now.  Also see links below to other authors you might like to check out.

I’d like to thank fellow author Rita Herron for tagging me to participate. Click the link below to find out about her latest work Dying to Tell

In this particular hop, I and my fellow authors, in their respective blogs, have answered 10 questions where you get to learn about our current work in progress as well as some insights into our process, from characters and inspirations to plotting and cover decisions. I hope you enjoy it!

Please feel free to comment and share your thoughts and questions. Here is my Next Big Thing!

1: What is the working title of your book.

The working title of my book is Vegas Rift

2: Where did the idea come from for the book?

Numerous times, my promoter has suggested that short stories are selling like proverbial hotcakes. She warned our group to start producing more to meet the demand. Bridge stories were one example of writing a short. Not sure what she meant, I questioned her and found out that it was a brief record of what is happening in the lives of your characters between two full-length novels. Since at the time, I was actually writing my third book in the Vegas Series “High Stakes Gamble” and I wanted to start the events eleven months after the last book, this bridge story seemed to be the perfect answer.

3: What genre does your book come under?

The genre is Romantic Suspense

4: Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?

A young Bruce Willis and Jennifer Lawrence

5: What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?

Aurora survives her time separated from the man she loves, the father of her expectant baby.

6: Is your book self-published, published by an independent publisher, or represented by an agency?

The Vegas Series is self-published (but not self-edited). There are two editors working with me on these creations.

7: How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?

I’m still working the first draft and more than halfway through. So far I’ve written 5 days at approximately 3-4 hours each day.  The story will be finished in less than 4 days.

8: What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?

I would say my style of writing is like a Castle TV show – maybe a little grittier, language wise but with the same type of humor.

9: Who or what inspired you to write this book?

I love reading Romantic Suspense and watching these types of TV shows also. On my last trip to Vegas, I knew where I wanted my setting to be and so the rest fell in naturally.

10: What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?

If you’ve read Books #1 and #2 of the Vegas series, this story will whet your appetite for the next full-length addition to the series coming in March called High Stakes Gamble.

As a standalone story, readers might not get the full impact from Vegas Rift. And since I’ve kept the prices as low as possible on all the books (99 cents), I know they’re getting a deal if they buy them in order and enjoy the series as it unwinds.


Below you will find authors who will be joining me by blog, next Wednesday. Do be sure to bookmark and add them to your calendars for updates on WIPs and New Releases! Happy Writing and Reading!

Check out the new, fantastic website selling short stories for those people who only have a few minutes a day to relax!!!
The prices are all 99 cents and most of the authors appear
on many of Amazon's category best-seller's lists.
