Raise your hand if you’ve gained a few extra pounds since this pandemic began – You can’t see me, but I’m waving over here! Yeah, that’s me wearing the spanks –
I received the George Foreman grill as a gift from a caring friend who took pity on me, because my cooking skills are sorely lacking. Before Covid, I rarely snacked, but that’s over for now, too. My exercise has been reduced to MINIMAL manual household labor and occasional walks when the weather cooperates.
Since being quarantined, my writing time has increased and become a fierce ally. I’m not sure I’d like to actually thank Covid for gluing me to the computer, but I will credit and acknowledge Mr. Ice Pack, who’s lent me comfort for achy shoulders, and Ms. Tylenol for various assorted muscle aches.
Here’s what I’ve accomplished to date.
Row With Me is a fun novelette included in our Summer Shorts Collection, which I am offering now as a single on preorder – Here’s the blurb: “Shiloh’s previous liaisons are the less than traditional type, but meeting Gus is a game changer on so many levels. Her attraction to him is gut slamming, but is she ready to commit to a man?” https://www.amazon.com/Row-Me-Loves-Salvation-Collection-ebook/dp/B08GKHDVN6
I released Braving the Wild Elements last week and it’s having a pretty good run – the story is also included in our Sweet and Sassy Summertime: Volume One Anthology.
Here’s the blurb: “Two softhearted sisters throw caution to the wind and rescue a stranded hitchhiker during a mandatory evacuation. Add a homeless veterinarian for good measure and learn the secret of how all four weather the elements during an unexpected hurricane – especially behind closed doors when they face the passionate storms brewing in their hearts.” You can get Elements here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08F3BQKPH/
My third tale is (oddly enough) called Work in Progress, but this fun story is only available in our soon to be released, comedy collection Cute But Crazy: Ditzy Dudes. You can preorder the collection now and it will zoom into your Kindle on Sept. 8. Pre-Order it here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B087R31WXG
