What's in the Swag Pack?

Yesterday, I posted on Facebook that I might share what will be in the Bracing the Blue Line swag pack. And I nearly forgot to post it today!

So, why am I sharing what's in the swag pack? Because I'm evil and I want you to see it now, even though you won't get a chance to win one until release day. Plus, I'm way too excited to keep this to myself.

So, here it is!

There's a BtBL t-shirt. That's the front and the back has the cover and my blog link.

We have the paperback and bookmark, of course.

The remaining three items tie in to each character.

That black, round thing? It's a hockey puck-shaped stress ball and that's for Neil. It says, "Pace the room with Neil Lawson" because he's a pacer when he's stressed. And Neil has a lot to be stressed about! If you aren't sure why, let me refer to this line in the blurb: "Captain Neil Lawson wants to run for the hills when a one night stand shows up on his doorstep, pregnant with his baby. "

Below that is a library card and card pocket. That's for Grant for two reasons. 1. He loves to read. 2. He's in the library quite often, which is one place where Lucy keeps finding him.

To the left is a retro popcorn box and a bag of popcorn tied together with a movie night ribbon. That's for Winston. All I can really say is that he and Maddie start watching movies together when she's missing home.

So, there you have it! As I said, the first chance to win one of these is via the Release Day Email through my monthly newsletter. If you haven't signed up yet, you can do so here. Be sure to say YES to wanting to receive the email on release days and you'll automatically be entered to win a swag pack!

Bracing the Blue Line is available for preorder on AmazonKoboB&N, or iBooks for the special price of $2.99! Be sure to add it to your to-read shelf on Goodreads as well!

Oh Captain, My Captain Series Announcement!

Today, Mary Smith and I would like to share with you the first book in our new series and how the series will be released. If you follow Mary or me on Facebook, then you know that last month, we asked our fans to tell us how they wanted us to release the Oh Captain, My Captain series.

You told us.
We listened.
One book released every month for the first four books.

Starting in October, we’re kicking off the start of a new hockey season with the start of our new series. In case you don’t remember, this will be an Adult Sports Romance series where each book is a standalone. The series will follow various captains in the NHL, who lead teams that we’ve created. Each captain gets one book, which can be read in any particular order.

That said, let’s get to the first book, Looking for You.

Oh Captain, My Captain presents Hudson King of the Portland Vikings.

Hudson King loves his job and his family. His life is missing that someone special, and he’s ready to settle down. He has the bad luck of only finding women who want him for his money and fame. If only he could meet someone who didn’t know him by his profession...

Ellie Sullivan has had a hard life. It’s revolved around her family, and then her career, leading her to never have a real relationship. One night, in Portland, Ellie strikes up a conversation with a guy at a bar, not knowing that it was the Hudson King... 

After several dates, Hudson is able to avoid Ellie figuring out what is really happening in his life. However, the secret can’t remain hidden. Will Ellie stay with Hudson after she discovers his lie? Or will Hudson lose the girl he’s been looking for?

Add this October 9, 2014 release to your to-read shelf on Goodreads! You’ll learn the title, exact November release date, and blurb for the next book at the end of this book. We hope you’re as excited as we are!

It's Another GEICO Commercial

Y'all, GEICO is on a roll with funny commercials. This one, I didn't find funny until my brother's girlfriend pointed out something at the very end that I always missed somehow.

That "Jesse?" at the end? That's what I'm talking about! That made an initially not funny commercial kind of hilarious. Cracks me up every time I watch it now.

Have a great weekend, y'all!

The Burn Out

I've been having trouble writing more than like three sentences lately, and I'm pretty sure it's because I burned myself out over the summer, or from all the writing I've done all of this year. I mean, there was most of You Before MeBracing the Blue Line, a lot of Game Winner, plus most of the books in my and Mary's next series. I don't know about you, but that's a lot of writing! All of that in six months.

For the past few weeks, I've been feeling "eh" to writing altogether. I have all the scenes in my head, but typing them into a doc has proven to be very difficult. I've read some books in attempts to recharge, but it surprisingly hasn't really helped. I attempted to take a week off, but I couldn't resist jotting in those few sentences if I actually had some to put down.

I burned myself out.

And it sucks! I want to write, the story wants to be told, but as soon as I open that doc, it disappears.

I'm really hoping that my upcoming vacation will do the trick and recharge me completely. For now, I'm going to go with the flow, read some more, go on vacation, and start school. I'll get back into the groove of things soon, I'm sure!

Hope you are all having a great day. I'm going to read for a bit. :)

You Know It's Funny

GEICO does it again! Okay, I didn't know that it was even a GEICO commercial until I was searching for it, but that's not important. You'll see where my attention is caught every time this appears on my TV.

This week's commercial may not seem that funny, but it is. Just a little, at least. Enjoy!
