Get Some “Manspiration”

Brrrr… I don’t know about you, but it is so cold here where I live! At night I sit in front of the fireplace, curled up with a good book (or my laptop if I have more writing to do!) and picture myself lying on the beach somewhere. How about you, what is your weather like? Are you escaping it to go on a warm holiday? We just booked a vacation for April and I can’t wait!

Many of you have already read Once Upon a Duke’s Dream, which I released in November, but it seems to be resurging as a fan favorite! If you haven’t read it, it is a story of an evil stepbrother, espionage, and, of course, love. It currently has a 4.7 rating out of 5 on Amazon. “The characters are well written and they pull you into the story. This book kept me turning the pages to find out what happened and will keep your interest until the end!” is just one example of a review.

I would also suggest you read it to get excited about my next release -- we are a few weeks away, but I’d like to introduce you to a little “manspiration,” as a few of my author friends call it. When writing, we often model our characters, particularly our heroes, off of men we know, either in our lives or who we see on the big screen. I have done this before for my novels, but this time, I am so excited because my hero is modeled off of none other than Chris Hemsworth, who I am secretly in love with. I’ve included one of my fav pics of him, acting in the role of Alastair Finchley, who you will meet in Once Upon a Duke’s Dream. I hope you enjoy :)

And don’t forget! The Facebook contest for a $15 Amazon gift card is still ongoing. Head on over to my page to enter.
