Blurb Jeremy King, Hollywood über-agent to the stars, knows that sharks gotta swim. He’s one of them, after all. He’s never met a deal he couldn’t strike or an argument he couldn’t win. LA is his kind of town—they both never stop moving.

So when his friend and client, movie star Andrew Pettigrew, invites him on a “man-cation” to the wilds of Idaho for a little fly-fishing, Jeremy’s not so sure. He might not have cell service. There’s no way there’ll be any supermodels to woo. And his idea of the great outdoors is a drive down the Pacific Coast Highway in his Tesla Model S—moose definitely do not factor into the picture.

Fitting then that because of a moose, he meets Macy Shea Summerlin, the best fly-fishing guide on the South Fork. Jeremy’s surprised and tantali…

What #songs Inspired New Release SPIKED (Blocked #3)?

Spiked has been out in the world for a week, generating wonderful reviews!

"Starting from the moving dedication to victims of trauma, to the very satisfying ending, this was not only a very engaging book, but also thought-provoking and inspirational."
~Teresa from Goodreads


"I FLOVE MATEO AND JESSICA.

FLOVE, FLOVE, FLOVE.

I mean, come on, who wouldn't like this broken guy who ends up being perfectly imperfect with a girl he never thought he would chance to meet. She is beautiful, smart, and yet utterly broken as well.

They build each other up as much as they break each other's walls down."

~Amy's Review Obsession (this one made me laugh!)

The hero Mateo Ramirez is a singer/songwriter, so music is quite important to the story.
Which songs inspired SPIKED?
1) Lay it All on Me by Rudimental featuring Ed Sheeran


Let my love in, let my love in 
Lay your heart on me 
If you're hurting, if you're hurting 
Lay it all on me 





2) Make You Feel My Love by Bob Dylan

#IWSG The Countdown to Publication: When is Your Story Ready?

Welcome to October's Insecure Writer's Support Group, hosted by Alex Cavanaugh. Join us HERE


This month's question:
When do you know your story is ready?
My answer is simple: WHEN MY EDITOR FINISHES! 
I've worked with the same bomdiggity editor--Jessica Royer Ocken--for all seven of my novels, and I absolutely trust her ability to polish the manuscript. Then my amazing book designer, Coreen Montagna, swoops in to make it pretty. 
I'm lucky I met Jessica and Coreen, along with my astute critique partner, Nicki Elson, through my publisher. Now that I self-publish, I feel so grateful for the team that readies my story for publication.
I manage to publish one book a year, and 2016's book launch (Spiked) happened October 1st. Once your story is ready to be published, how do you market your novel? I'll share a couple of strategies I've tried.
Facebook Party. My zesty marketing assistant Mitsy Princell convinced me to host an all-day Facebook release party with ove…
