Rhys Cole’s life has always revolved around hockey. Growing up, he knew he’d play in the National Hockey League, but when his dream of being drafted didn’t happen, he chose the next best thing: becoming a hockey sportscaster for a local sports station. But just like in sports, you win some, you lose some. When Rhys discovers his girlfriend cheating with a stranger in his bed, he walks to the local bar down the street to let off some steam.

After moving her way up the journalism field by covering stories in extreme weather conditions and working late hours, Ashtyn Valor is now the lead anchor for the nightly news. Finally settled into her career, Ashtyn is ready to take the next step in life with her boyfriend. But when he unexpectedly breaks up with her, Ashtyn decides to numb the pain with alcohol at the closest bar.

Rhys and Ashtyn both expected an evening of alcohol to mask the pain of that October night. What they didn’t expect was meeting someone who could shield them from the darkness of their heartaches.

When an obsessed stalker turns dangerous, Ashtyn turns to Rhys for safety. Safe in each other’s arms, they realize fate has other plans for their hearts. But what will happen when Rhys finds out that their pasts are intertwined and Ashtyn’s stalker decides murder is the only way to make the obsession reality?

Rhys and Ashtyn learn the game of love always goes on.

And their game was just beginning.

Whew, October!

October was so busy, I can’t share everything in the newsletter so I am making this post about signings so you can see some of the pics.

October 7 was Brew City Book Signing in Milwaukee, WI.

I hit up the Harley Museum the day before and meet some awesome authors and readers at the event. My room sucked, it had mold, but it couldn’t ruin my weekend.

 

October 14 was Arch City Book Signing in Columbus, OH.

WOW, such a good time. I got to hang with some of my favorite people and saw the best drag show ever!

October 21 was Desert & Wine with the author at Vegas Valley.

I got to sit and chat with an amazing woman over cupcakes and hear some interesting information from other authors.

October 28 was Love N Vegas, right here in my hometown.

What a way to close out my year of signings. This event was ah-mazing. I hope to get an invite in the future.

Irrevocably Mine – Big Dax & Stacy’s Playlist

I said I would post here, so I am finally doing it.

A little, no, a LOT late posting this here. I start sharing each couple’s playlist the two weeks leading up to release. After release, you can find their playlist on Spotify. From now on, I’ll also post here, just for fun.

IRREVOCABLY MINE – Imagine Ink 3

Whoever said love isn’t easy wasn’t kidding.
Love grabs hold, shapes you, and takes over until you are no longer in control.

At five foot two, Stacy stands tall in her designer heels—accessorized with a no-nonsense attitude, off-color sense of humor, and a sharp tongue.

Big Dax is larger than life—a sasquatch of a man with the soul of an artist, the heart of a Viking, and eyes for just one woman.

Stacy’s life is just fine as is—great sex, stiff drinks, and wins in the courtroom. She has everything she’s ever dreamed of and doesn’t need a man to “complete her” like some cheesy rom-com.

Dax has thought of nothing the past year except getting Stacy into his home, heart, and bed. Nothing, that is, except finding his daughter and bringing her home. He’s a man with two missions and both seem impossible. His daughter will come home, and Stacy will be his, come hell or high water.

Anything worth loving is worth fighting for.

THESE ARE SIMPLE SONGS MY CHARACTERS LISTEN TO AND I FOUND THE VIDEOS ON YOUTUBE AND SHARED THEM HERE. POSTING THESE VIDEOS HERE IS IN NO WAY MY ATTEMPT TO INDICATE RIGHTS OR ENDORSEMENT, MUSIC IS HOW I CONNECT WITH MY CHARACTERS AND I WANTED TO SHARE IT WITH YOU.

Brand Me – Tori & Michael’s playlist

I said I would post here, so I am finally doing it.

A little, no, a LOT late posting this here. I start sharing each couple’s playlist the two weeks leading up to release. After release, you can find their playlist on Spotify. From now on, I’ll also post here, just for fun.

BRAND ME – Imagine Ink 2

Love shouldn’t just make you happy, it should brand you.

Tori Reid thinks she’s well on her way to everything she ever wanted. When her boyfriend, Richard invites her on a three-month vacation, she assumes he’s finally going to pop the question. But when she meets Michael, her expectations for the trip, and her future, quickly change.

Everything about Michael Brande screams quintessential playboy. He seems to be relishing his newly-single status by jumping from bed to bed across the Florida Panhandle.

However, appearances can be deceiving.

The mandatory trip to Tennessee couldn’t have come at a better time. He needed to get away-now. Away from his cheating ex-fiancée trying to worm her way back into his life, the increasing tales of his “many exploits,” but mostly from his secret shame and taunting dreams. His life couldn’t possibly get worse.

Both are about to learn that some truths are painful, but sometimes, pain is necessary for salvation.

Indelible You-Walker & Erika’s Playlist

A little, no, a LOT late posting this here. I start sharing each couple’s playlist the two weeks leading up to release. After release, you can find their playlist on Spotify. From now on, I’ll also post here, just for fun.

EDIT: SHIT, I posted this last month, or so I thought. Apparently, I drafted it and forgot.

INDELIBLE YOU – Imagine Ink 1
Ink is indelible.
So is love, at least in theory.

Walker is an over-inked, reformed bad boy. He’s a man with a checkered past, anger issues, and eyes for just one woman.

Erika is a slightly older woman with secrets of her own, who is head over heels (actually knees over shoulders) in love with him.

Somehow, they have remained oblivious to their mutual attraction for five years. 

One night, they take the plunge. Love conquers all, right?

They expose their hearts and bodies, expecting a happily ever after until a terrible secret is revealed—during climax.

Anything worth having is worth bleeding for—and boy will they bleed—but will it be enough to drain the taint of that secret, or will it be fatal for both of them?

Some things are more permanent than tattoos.

BUY IT HERE!

TRACK 1 – Love You To Death – Type O Negative

TRACK 2 – Nothing Else Matters – Metallica

TRACK 3 – Center of the Universe – Kamelot

TRACK 4 – Tattooed Millionaire – Bruce Dickenson

TRACK 8 – Angel – Judas Priest

TRACK 9 – Anywhere – Advantasia

TRACK 10 – This Love – Pantera

Track 11 – The End of the Heartache – Killswitch Engage

TRACK 12 – Love Me Forever – Motörhead

Author Questions Answered (Music)

Answering the author questions I get asked the most. I am in no way indicating that I speak for the community as a whole. As authors are diverse, so are their answers. This/these is/are simply mine.


MUSIC

Modern Computer Station

  • What do you listen to when you write? Do you have a writing playlist?

This is probably one of the top 5 questions I get asked. Almost every questionnaire I receive has it, many readers ask it, and I always want to know about my favorite books/authors too.

For me, I don’t have a set writing playlist, rather each couple/book has their/its own unique playlist. More often than not, music is my first introduction to them, the first thing they share with me. I get to know them through their music before they let me in on their story. Music is, for me, an intimate way to get to know people in real life, so why not my characters? They don’t always give me their entire library, but a song here or there, and once I have enough to get a feel for them, I immerse myself in that music, even when it is totally not my personal taste. Not only when I am actively writing, but when I’m in the car, riding Lemmy, or working out. That playlist is on a loop, and at some point, I mesh with them on a different level, and then their story begins to take on new layers. I continue listening to the playlist until the book is finished.

FOLLOW UP QUESTIONS

  • Do you always connect through music?

Yes and no.

Yes, because I always need to connect through music for my character to have depth. For me to even understand them and tell their story, I have to feel their music.

No, because sometimes I can’t. When I find myself skipping songs repeatedly, I suffer character block. I can’t get a real feel for them. Currently, I find myself skipping songs on my WiP playlist or just turning it off, causing me to not be able to connect to one of my main characters. I can’t write them when I can’t connect and sadly, music is my main bridge.

  • Why isn’t it in the back of your book? Can (do) you share it?

I have read books with a playlist in the back matter, and while I personally love the idea, I am not sure of all the legalities about doing it myself. I would rather put my money in editing, covers, and marketing than to pay a lawyer to find out or to handle it if I do so without full knowledge and have to pay. (Yes, there is always Google, but I prefer not to rely on an internet search for legal advise.) Besides, I do share the playlists. I have them on Spotify, I also share them on my Facebook page and Pinterest. However, I am going to start sharing them here. (I’ll get my back-lists up this week.)

  • Do your characters only listen to your favorite music?

No, sometimes they listen to songs that make me want to drive rusty railroad spikes through my eardrums, but it’s not about what I like, it’s all about getting in touch with them.
