Tina Titillating Teaser for New Year's Eve @KristenEthridge #MFRWauthor

A Contemporary Romance: New Year’s Eve (A Holiday Hearts Novella) with Laurel Lock Books, a Division of the Laurel Lock Publishing Group.

Eve Larson arranged a solitary New Year’s celebration at her mother’s beach house to give herself the space to evaluate her recent hurts—the death of her mother and a broken engagement. She wants nothing more than to put them behind her and make a fresh start on January 1. When her ex-fiance’s brother, Spencer Canley, shows up with one final demand from her past, Eve worries her plans are sinking like a ship off her beloved Texas coast. Circumstances keep Spencer at the beach longer than either of them initially want, but the delay gives each of them the opportunity to see the other in a different light. As Spencer makes a decision that changes everything about his upcoming year, he realizes he doesn't want to repeat his brother’s mistake of pushing Eve away. A year ago, the changing of the calendar brought news that changed Eve’s whole life. Could this new year bring love back?

Amazon Reader Review (Five Stars) Start your New Year's reading right with Spencer & Eve! A light, quick read, but Ethridge packs a character-soaked punch into just a couple pages. Shifting flawlessly from his to her perspective, and back again, it's a well-rounded tale of end of the road realizations, tough choices, and new beginnings. I would definitely read more about where the next 364 days take this intriguing pair! Looking forward to more installments in the Holiday Hearts series as well.

40 Days of Continuous Promotion for Authors - Egg-Cerpt Exchange

March 5 is the first day of Lent and the first day of the Eggcerpt Exchange.

This is a great way for authors to promote their books on each other blogs.

Here is how it works.

First an author post on their blog the exchange information about their book (cover, blurb, 250-500 word excerpt, buy links and author links.(No bio))

Next they notify authors in the Eggcerpt Exchange list that they want to exchange posts. The first person an author notifies is me.

Two authors agree to exchange information about their books. Arrange the dates ahead of time and exchange URL information via email.Each post the information on their blogsite with picture of the book, blurb, excerpt, links to other author's site and buy links to the book.

When I post it on my blogspot site, it is feed into Facebook and Google +. In exchange you do the same for me by putting my information on your blog sites. It’s a great way to promote your book.

The one thing to remember is these are general access sites so the excerpts have to be less graphic.

Also this runs from March 5, 2013 to April 20, 2013.

Contact me today to reserve your date  --

( I only post one book a day and I have a list on my blogsite of the authors participating with a link to their site.)

Writer's Tip - Keep Writing

Writing is not like riding a bicycle, it takes regular practice to keep the juices following.

I'm not saying you have to write every day, but after taking several weeks off, I personally find it is hard to get back into the rhythm of writing.

That's not to say, you have to write for hours at a time. An hour or half an hour a day might be more than ample time to prime the pump. Just workout a schedule that works for you.

My biggest distraction is the internet. To help with this problem, I log off before I begin to write. If I need to look something up while I'm working, I put a note in my manuscript and keep working.

Also, change things up occasionally. I just reworked my schedule so that I write first before I visit any of my social sites. This keeps my number of words for the day up. Otherwise, I get distracted and end up not writing as much.

Just find what works with you and try to stick to it. That's all any of us can do.

Amanda Spencer has spent years searching for clues to her first husband's murder. Now, she is close, too close to let William VanHorn get in the way. He wants to claim her as his wife, but she doesn’t have time to satisfy the man's needs. She wants answers not sex.

Determined to find out who killed his best friend, Scott poses as a struggling artist to help the Dragon Center investigate a corrupt art dealer. He has ulterior motives for requesting Dee as his protector, getting her in his bed not the least of them. However, Scott soon realizes his mistake.
When the mission becomes more dangerous than either of them anticipate, Scott's black dragon blood stirs to protect Dee while hers calls for retribution.

Devoted chemist, Sarah VanHorn, lives for her research but fantasizes about loving Jake Ramsey. Her two worlds collide when the dragon center agent arrives to rescue her from the company suspected of producing chemicals dangerous to those with dragon blood.
Sarah's not the only one with fantasies. Jake wants Sarah as his mate and he's waited years to claim her. Now, under his protective custody—not to mention the influence of Syndetic's sexual stimulant scenting the air—he can't resist the fiery temptation to finally make her his.
But when tragedy strikes and their dreams are threatened, will Sarah sacrifice her career, Jake, and possibly her life to discover the answers? And will Jake let her?

Tina's Titillating Teaser about #MFRWAuthor @VickiBatman

Like some of her characters, award-winning author, Vicki Batman has worked a wide variety of jobs including lifeguard, ride attendant at an amusement park; a hardware store, department store, book store, antique store clerk; administrative assistant in an international real estate firm; and a general “do anything gal” at a financial services firm--the list is endless.

Writing for several years, she has completed three manuscripts, written essays, and sold many short stories to TRUE LOVE, TRUE ROMANCE, TRUE CONFESSIONS, NOBLE ROMANCE PUBLISHING, LONG AND SHORT REVIEWS, MUSEITUP PUBLISHING, and THE WILD ROSE PRESS.

She is a member of RWA and several writing groups and chapters. In 2004, she joined DARA and has served in many capacities, including 2009 President. DARA awarded her the Robin Teer Memorial Service Award in 2010. She's active on the Plotting Princesses

Most days begin with her hands set to the keyboard and thinking "What if??"

Today, Vicki Batman keeps it Short & Sweet as she sits down to talk with MFRW about her newest book, a self-published Romantic Comedy, released on February 4, 2014.

From sassy writer Vicki Batman comes three hilarious short reads.

"Bug Stuff"
A co-worker unites with the hunky, new accountant to fight a pesky adversary.

"With This Ring"
The Unimaginable. When Katherine forgets her little black dress for a must-attend event, all turns into something utterly romantic and unforgettable in the end.

"Just Desserts"
A political dinner gone disastrous brings together a reluctant attendee and her handsome seat-mate.

MFRW: Tell us about your latest book. What motivated the story? Where did the idea come from? 
VICKI: Bug Stuff…and other stories follows my other two shortie collections, Man Theory and Little Birdie Who. I'd submitted them to a popular magazine, but they were turned down. A few had nice notations included. The stories weren't bad, just not what they were interested in acquiring because they'd already had something or wanted something specific. I couldn't let them languish; so I decided to indie pub them.

MFRW: Do you feel humor is important in fiction and why?
VICKI: I do. For me, writing humor in my stories comes naturally. And it is more real life (at least, with the people who surround me). 

MFRW: What is your writing routine once you start a book?
VICKI: An idea goes Bing! And I take off, usually in dialogue with a smattering of the other stuff as it pops in my head. My first draft is very, very rough. I read over and over and edit and edit to get it perfect for my critique partners. When I get my critique back, I'd hoped all would be good to go, but alas, it never it. So I work and work it again. Then one day, I let go…

MFRW: What about your family, do they know not to bother you when you are writing - or are there constant interruptions?
VICKI: My family is gone during the day. They don't bother me usually. But when there are those interruptions, I welcome the time with them.

MFRW: What do you do to relax and recharge your batteries?
VICKI: Sounds crazy but I always workout. Every single day. I do needlepoint and chill in front of the TV with Handsome.

MFRW: A biography has been written about you. What's the title in six words or less?
VICKI: Sass and Class
