WHEN IT HITS YOU (It Series #1) by @NickiElson3D #contemporary #romance #NewRelease

I'm so pleased to have my critique partner, NICKI ELSON, here to tell you about her new book! I adored this book (see my 5 star review.) Thank you to author Darcia Helle for this f'in blog post idea. Take it away, Nicki:

Thank you, Jen, for having me over to celebrate the release of WHEN IT HITS YOU (a new edition of the novel formerly known as Vibrizzio). Reacquiring my rights to this story allowed me to re-brand with an emphasis on the love story. I'm so excited to have it join its sister books in The It Series: WHEN IT HOOKS YOU and WHEN IT HOLDS YOU.

For today's post, Jen gave me ten F-words to relate to one of my characters. I chose Lyssa Bates, the lead in WHEN IT HITS YOU.

Only 99c through Valentines Day
F'ing LyssaSomething about Lyssa that is...

1. Frightful - She dumps a shocking amount of cream in her coffee.

2. Favorable - She's the kind of friend who'll whisk your drunken ass away from embarrassment.

3. Flamboyant - She gets saucy on the dance floor …

#IWSG Writing Rules

How's your writing? I decided to re-edit my debut novel, With Good Behavior. It's taking me a long time because it's so bad! Adverb abuse abounds.

JANUARY 4TH QUESTION: What writing rule do you wish you’d never heard?

Since I got into this writing thing as a lark, I haven't been big on rules.
One rule I wish I followed more was to limit adverbs. *see above*
But one rule I wish I'd never heard?

My day job as a psychologist doesn't leave me the time or energy to write every day, and all this "rule" does is to jack up guilt. 
I agree that writing is a muscle--the more we write, the better we get. But we each need to find our own writing schedule.
I mostly write on weekends, and that works for me.
