#MySexySaturday – Wild and Tender Care #4thofJuly #Romance

For the 4th of July edition of My Sexy Saturday I have a 7 paragraph excerpt from my Historical Independence Day romance Wild and Tender Care. Her attention returned to the stranger’s back, curiosity burning her brain. Although not richly dressed he gave an air of the city more than one of a cowboy or miner. She examined his charcoal gray frock coat taking in every inch of him. His straight black hair fell to his shoulders topped by a black derby hat. The tall stranger added his empty plate to a stack at the end of the table and … Continue reading

#BBW #Ghost #Romance for #99cents! Pre-order on @amazon before July 30th

My newest novella Caged Bird is now available for pre-order. It is the first story in my haunted hotel series. I’m stretching my wings and trying new genres. I guess I’m entering a ghost phase. Is that kind of like Picasso’s  blue period? It is hard to find or even come up with a good concept for a ghost romance cover. I did a lot of research and noticed many ghost romances had pictures of flowers and other non-people objects. I decided to go with this trend and play on the name of the brothel in my novella Bird Cage. … Continue reading

And if you’re a reader maybe you’ll understand after reading her explanation. Also, don’t miss the information on her new release Lovin’ the Odds.

Novella Price Poll: Results – #amreading #ebooks

Thank you to all 55 people who answered my novella price poll question. In case you are interested here are the results. I was relieved that no one said FREE.

Novella Price Poll: How Much Would You Pay? #ebooks #amreading

]There are a lot of changes going on with my publishers. One thing I have learned from my two years in the business is that everything keeps changing. Not sure if I like all these changes, but I’ll see how they pan out. Supposedly the ebook publishers who have been in the business a lot longer than I have should have the knowledge to improve business. However, after the impending failure of romance giant Ellora’s Cave I’m a little leery. If you have a second I encourage you to take my pricing poll. I’m very curious about the results! I … Continue reading

Getting Back in the Saddle – #amwriting again

I’m getting personal on Naomi Bellina’s blog today. Writing is not always easy. It is equally a rewarding and frustrating job. It is true that in order to be a successful author you need to have an inner creative drive. You need to want to write to please yourself, because it is hard to break into the business. After almost a year away, I talk about the struggle and getting back in the saddle again. Time to make writing a habit again! You can read about it at the link below. http://www.naomibellina.com/blog/getting-back-in-the-saddle-with-writing-from-haley-whitehall Discussion question: Have you ever taken several months … Continue reading
