Online Book Signings

May 2020, consisted of two online book signings.  It was a pleasure to meet with readers virtually though the webcasts. Books were signed and mailed the day after each event.

The CABIN FEVER ANTHOLOGY is coming along. It is comprised of six authors, romance, and having cabin fever.  Look for it to arrive on Amazon in July.

 

What is an anthology?

Sunny Abernathy, A Lie in the Cabin, Renee Pellegrino, Rewrite, Stephanie Spicer, Kristy Lynde, Roxie St. James, Family Matters, Cynthia Carver,Halloween Masquerade. Author, romance, paranormal suspense, indie author, authors, contemporary romanceWith the pandemic and negative news articles spreading around, I stuck my head in the sand with five other women and began working on an anthology.  You might ask, “What is an anthology?” Well, let me tell you, it is a fantastic project to be involved in.

An anthology is a collection of writings by various authors in the same genre, time period, or subject. Another type is a collection of selected writing by one author. I will be a part of the first type.

Cabin Fever is what many people experienced while under the stay-at-home order or lockdown during the Covid-19 outbreak, and that inspired the name of our collection of writings.

This is my first attempt into the romance genre. The heat range on this anthology is fade-to-black. While I write erotic short stories, they aren’t formula romance.  Halloween Masquerade is my first published attempt in the romance genre.

In fact, we consider each author in this collection a new author. Sunny Abernathy writes A Lie in the Cabin, Renee Pellegrino writes Rewrite, Stephanie Spicer writes Untitled At this TimeKristy Lynde writes Untitled At this TimeRoxie St. James writes Family Matters, and I wrote Halloween Masquerade.

All proceeds from this book go to sponsor the NaNoWriMo Support Sisters real life writing retreat in November of each year.

NaNoWriMo

What is NaNoWriMo?  It is National Novel Writing Month.  Embraced by novelists, authors, and writers.  The goal is to write 50,000 words in a story format.  Formatting does not matter, genre does not matter, and neither do your typing skills or grammar.  This is a goal each person sets for him or herself, and all milestones should be celebrated.

My goal is to write 50,000 words in a new genre.  The new to me genre is romance.  Romance has a formula and to have a romance novel that means I have to meet the expectations of the industry.  To reach the word count is doing what I do already, type 2,000 words a day.  My stretch is writing to market and catching all the beats anticipated by the reader and demanded by the publishers.

Small Bit of Justice – deleted scene

Annie and Hillary continued to sit on the embankment. Dominick flashed his badge and identification quickly.

“You ladies are safe now.” Sly said.

“Show me your badge again. I want to know that it is real and not from the dime store.” Hillary said.

Dominick held it for Hillary to examine.

“See I knew it was f ning fake. No one from the damn UN would care if I got kidnapped or not.” Hillary said.

Two highway patrol cars parked behind the van and Sylvester’s truck, and one zipped around to park in front of the van. Dominick showed his badge to the officers and Sylvester produced his identification. “We’re looking for two women in a ‘70 orange MG. They go by the name of Tracy Richards and Lehana Jamison.” Dominick told the officers.

“What you want them for?” Hillary said.

“Have you seen them Miss?” The state highway patrolman said.

“Yes, they’re the ones who rescued Annie and me.”

“They did this?” The state highway patrolman asked.

“Yes.” Annie said.

The state highway patrol officers hauled the men out of the van.

“Two women did this,” asked the officer who took charge of the scene.

“Yes sir.” Annie said again.

“The idea that Tracy had put herself in danger irritated the hell out of me. Yet to see the men trussed up like goats at the rodeo makes me proud to know she has capabilities.” Sly said to Dominick.

“Officers, we’ll take our leave and continue on our search for those two vigilantes. Girls, I’m glad your safe and will be reunited with your families in a few hours.” Dominick said.

He and Sly returned to the truck.

“Let’s go.” Dominick maneuvered the truck around the patrol cars and pulled out onto the highway.

As they passed the next exit, there sat the battery to the van. They both laughed.
