PROMO Blitz: Love to Believe by @lisaricardclaro #excerpt




Contemporary Romance
Date Published: 1/30/2016

 photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png
A woman in a man’s world...
CPA Rebecca Walker wields a hammer and saw with skill, but it’s like fighting tooth and nail to prove to her chauvinistic father that she’s capable of managing the family construction business. Romance is a luxury Rebecca can’t afford.
A man with secrets...
Thanks to his past, romance isn’t in Sean Kinkaid’s future, so when Rebecca proposes ‘friends with benefits,’ Sean agrees. It’s the perfect scenario until love sneaks in—and Sean’s secrets tear them apart.
Believe...
But Rebecca has a secret too, one she fears Sean will never accept. It will take intervention from an unlikely source to convince these two lovers they have the one thing neither of them ever expected to find ... a love to believe.


Excerpt

“Sean?”
Rebecca’s voice poleaxed him and a powerful wave of awareness washed over him, several things manifesting at once: She had the power to slay him with a single word, she sounded shaken and scared, and this must be serious because she hadn’t initiated contact with him even once since their split. A quick flash of their brief, but passionate, coming together at the gazebo stabbed into his gut, as did her statement before she retreated. ‘I can’t do this,’ she’d said, and he assumed she meant she couldn’t cheat on Nate. Which didn’t negate the fact that she’d been as involved in the kiss as Sean had been, but, he reminded himself for the thousandth time, just because he and Rebecca shared history and a powerful physical attraction didn’t mean that Nate hadn’t managed to win her heart, or at the very least, her loyalty. In either case, she didn’t belong to Sean. He needed to remember that.
“Sean? Are you there?”
“You sound upset.” He heard sirens through the phone and his heart damn near stopped beating as icy fear sluiced over him. “Are you okay? Have you been in an accident?”
“No, but I need you, Sean.”
His heart started pumping again and relief flooded through him. “Where are you, sweetheart? I’ll be right there.”
“No, no. Its—I need you, but I’m not asking—I need a lawyer, Sean. I’m about to be arrested.”
Comprehension doused him like an unexpected cold shower. She didn’t need him, she needed his legal expertise. Ouch.
He pinched the bridge of his nose. “Arrested for what?”
“Resisting arrest and assaulting a police officer.”
A surprised laugh escaped him. “Are you serious?”
“Can I count on you or not?”
“Jesus, yes. Of course. Are you still at the scene of the…uh…crime?”


About the Author


Lisa Ricard Claro is an editor, award-winning author, and Pushcart Prize nominee with published articles and stories spanning multiple media. She resides in Georgia with her husband of more than three decades and counting, is mother to three (a ruggedly handsome son and two stunningly beautiful daughters--Lisa might be a little biased), and dreams of one day living at the beach. Seriously dreams of it. As in, she's already decorating her dream beach house. In addition to an array of sand dollars and seashells, she keeps a framed sign hanging in her office: "Sandy Toes and Salty Kisses Welcome Here."

Lisa is also a lover of dogs and cats, and has a heart for rescues. This is why you will find a rescued pet companion in every one of her books. Sometimes they are part of the story line (Pirate the dog, in "Love Built to Last"), and sometimes they're already ensconced in their forever home with one of Lisa's characters (Pavarotti the cat, in "Love to Win"). As you read Lisa's books, watch for the rescues!

While Lisa is a fan of storytelling in all genres, Romance is her favorite because she believes everyone deserves love and a happily-ever-after. But she adores a little mystery now and then, too, so keep an eye out for Lisa's authorship of a whodunit one of these days soon.

Tour Kick Off: Liquid Fire by @gloriacbishop




Paranormal Romance
Date Published: February 9, 2016



Everyone remembers their childhood as being magical. Lee just found out hers really was. 



After suffering a run of bad luck, Lee wants nothing more than to lick the wounds of her past and bury herself away from reality, but she discovers a world of magic, a history she never realized existed. Her destined elementals are being held against their will and the only way to find them is to align with the incredibly delectable, unbelievably stubborn Jeremy. They wind down pathways that will take their undeniable chemistry even higher as they move closer to the sinister plot that has stolen her birthright. Together they will find the villain and learn that sometimes fire and water can mix with steamy, hot results. 

A spark of flame glows. A sprinkle of rains slows.






#1 – Do You See Writing as a Career?

I do see writing as a career, but also as a lifestyle.  I write because I have to write, to get the stories, the words out.  I would love to have writing as a full time career, at this point it isn’t feasible.  That doesn’t make writing not a career – it is, a part time career.

#2 – What was the Hardest Part of Your Writing Process?

For the longest time the hardest part was confidence.  I have written for years, but threw everything out because I didn’t believe it was anything anyone would want to read.  I am working on my confidence but sometimes waiting on responses from publishers can etch away at it.

#3 – Did you have any One Person Who Helped You Out with Your Writing Outside of Your Family?

Outside of family I would have to say my best friend, Tracy.  She took the first novel I wrote in bits and pieces and kept bugging me until I wrote more.  She has been one of my biggest supporters – without her I don’t know where I would be.  She also grounds me, together we talk and laugh until it hurts.  She inspires me in ways that I can’t begin to explain.

#4 – What is next for your writing?

I am currently working on a few projects.  Including the sequel to my first novel, Supernaturally Yours as well as a sequel to Liquid Fire.

#5 – Do you have an addiction to reading as well as writing? If so, what are you currently reading?

Oh my goodness do I ever.  I read on average four books a week.  I just finished rereading The Stardancers by Spider and Jeanne Robinson.  I am also currently reading Katie Macalisters Sex and the Single Vampire.

Gloria lives in southwestern Ontario Canada, with her hubby, her two teenage kids and a slightly larger than normal (or believable) cockapoo named Spike.  She was lucky enough to meet the dude of her dreams at a drunken toga party while at college, two days before she turned nighteen, and they’ve been together ever since.  She believes in romance, and that attraction doesn’t have to die off.  It can survive everything from children to middle age drama.  She loves to laugh with her hubby and believes in keeping a sense of humour above everything else.  Gloria has always written, everything from poetry to short stories to a column in a local paper.  Her favorite is to write romance, because everyone deserves that feeling, that belief in a happily ever after.
A child of an extra-large blended family, with two brothers, two sisters, two dads, one mom, one step monster, twelve grandparents and so many aunts uncles and cousins that her hubby after twenty years still can’t keep track of them all.  
Being surrounded by that many voices growing up taught her how to block out what she doesn’t want to hear.  To this day that skill has come in very useful, as she gobbles up four books a week. From romance to fantasy even textbooks- nothing stands in her way when she wants to read.
She draws and collects crafts like other women collect shoes (which she also collects but that’s another story).  When she isn’t wearing her hat as mom, wife, writer, sister, artist, daughter, crafter, doggie mommy, friend, she can be found sitting around a campfire with an eclectic group of people.
She is a self professed geek.  Her geekdoms include Buffy the Vampire Slayer (or anything Joss Whedon does), zombies, star wars, the princess bride, game of thrones, the walking dead and so many more that she can’t possibly name them all.  
Overall she is a scooter riding, wookie hoodie wearing, fun loving woman who refuses to grow up.

PROMO Blitz: Bellisimo Fortuna by @AuthorLeigh #excerpt





Contemporary Romance / Romantic Suspense
Date Published: July 2015

 photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

Fierce, good-looking, loyal, son of a crime boss, Bronson Agosto is what every girl dreams of. Devoted to one girl and willing to do everything in his power to ensure her safety.

Beautiful, trusting, damaged, daughter of the underboss, Callie Locati has Bronson’s heart. She gave herself to him when they were kids and will sacrifice all she is to protect him.

Divided by the greed of one of the most trusted members of the familia, a father’s sins, and secrets kept, they struggle to overcome the obstacles life has thrown their way. Is their bond strong enough to conquer the forces trying to keep them apart? Is a father’s betrayal more than their love can survive? Will the family secrets ruin them or will their devotion stand the test of time?

*Not recommended for under the age of 18 due to strong language and sexual content*


Excerpt

Oftentimes when you lose someone close to you, the experience can be transformative. In grief, we find a side of ourselves that we didn’t know existed, a compassionate side, an empathetic side. Some people, however, are able to present a meticulously planned facade. Their grief isn’t real. Behind the mask, and the tears, and the sadness is a gluttonous, greedy, cold heart. These people are entitled, elitist, and you should be wary of them at all times.

Their intentions are malicious, calculated, and dangerous.

In the world I grew up in, people wore masks, but the truth was always wading beneath the surface. At their very core, they were always the same person, virtuous or vile, moral or malevolent, never a mix of both. Noble people can be dishonest, but corrupt people are only ever honest when it is for their own benefit. And that is the hardest lesson I have had to learn.

Mob, Mafia, Organized Crime, The Black Hand, or my favorite . . . The Syndicate. It’s said these racketeering groups have come a long way since the Prohibition Era, and I would agree. They are more cutthroat, devious, and treacherous with the end game. More control is acquired, more lives are ruined, and once your bridge with them is burned, it can never be rebuilt.

Sometimes they right a wrong with their own form of justice, and their way of payback prevails. But, sometimes greed and vengeance cloud their vision, and they are so off the mark, it’s just evil.

Tour Kick Off: Close to Destiny by @Adria_in_Paris #giveaway



Women's Fiction with Paranormal Undertones
Date Published: February 20, 2015


Kat is struggling to get her life back together and put her anorexia and suicide attempts behind her. She must expel the mysterious inner demons that have plagued her for years, and patch up the rocky relationship with her fiancé.

But when she arrives in London for a therapeutic art project, an encounter with an enigmatic woman named Destiny upsets her views of reality and plunges her into a quest for the truth about her past—an astonishing past that reaches back well before her birth.

After midnight, Destiny leads Kat to extravagant parties at an eerie luxury hotel and introduces her to a man who seems to know her better than she knows herself. Kat tries to convince herself this is all part of a strange dream. But as evidence mounts suggesting otherwise, Kat is torn between fascination and fear.

Will Kat run away, or will she seize the fleeting opportunity to change her life and find true love?

Alternating between the reality of day and the mystery of night, Close to Destiny by best-selling author Adria J. Cimino is a magical realism story of déjà vu and righting past wrongs that will delight fans of authors like Sarah Addison Allen and Erin Morgenstern.

#1 – Do You See Writing as a Career?

Yes, absolutely. For me, it’s a career. But as with any artistic activity – dance, acting, singing, for example – writing can also be a hobby. That is what’s wonderful about all that is artistic: It can be practiced at any level and in any manner.

#2 – What was the Hardest Part of Your Writing Process?

For Close to Destiny, the hardest part of my writing process was tying the magical realism in with all that was realistic in order to attain a seamless result. I wanted the reader to say: “What’s real and what’s not? I’m not sure…”


#3 – Did you have any One Person Who Helped You Out with Your Writing Outside of Your Family?

For the most part, I’ve pretty much struggled and developed on my own. In the past couple of years, though, fellow author (and my fellow co-founder of Velvet Morning Press) Vicki Lesage has been a great writing/editing partner.

#4 – What is next for your writing?

I have two novels coming out this spring! The Creepshow, a novel of the glass ceiling, and A Perfumer’s Secret, the story of a perfumer who searches for family secrets and love in Provence. The Creepshow is set for release in April, and A Perfumer’s Secret will be out in May.


#5 – Do you have an addiction to reading as well as writing? If so, what are you currently reading?

Yes, I’ve always loved to read! I just finished reading Everything Beautiful Began After by Simon Van Booy… I’m also the co-founder of indie publishing house Velvet Morning Press so at the moment I’m reading a few yet-to-be published (by us) books!

Release Blitz: The Holton Series by @blblair100 #giveaway



Romance
Date Published: 2/5/2016

 photo add-to-goodreads-button_zpsc7b3c634.png

The Holton Series consists of four sweet, simple, and relatively short romance novels.

Convince Me
Anna West just wants to start over in a new town far away from her past. The only child of a mixed race couple, Anna learned about the ugly side of human behavior at an early age. After watching her abusive father mistreat her mother, Anna knows that love is not for her.

Steven Carson has always known what he wanted, and from the moment he saw her, he wanted Anna. Steven is ready for love. He is ready to settle down, start a family, and he knows Anna is the one for him. Now all he has to do is convince her.

Notice Me
Andrew Moore has always thought of Victoria as family. She is his best friend’s little sister and his little sister’s best friend, but recently something has changed. Andrew is thinking about Victoria in a completely different way. She will never fit into his quiet, conservative world. They are too different to have a future together, but he cannot stop noticing her.

Victoria Carson has been in love with Andrew since her sixteenth birthday, but Andrew never noticed her as anything other than the girl next door. She fled from her hometown so that she wouldn’t have to watch Andrew build a life with someone else. But things have changed. Andrew is now a widower, and Victoria has returned home. It is time to make him notice her.

Trust Me
Rachel Lewis hides her looks behind dark framed glasses and drab clothes. As the head librarian in Holton, she is satisfied with her life and her appearance. Rachel isn't looking for love or a relationship, but Paul captivates her. He lives in a completely different world, but she wants him more than she has ever wanted any other man.

Paul Hart is handsome, rich, and successful. As the owner of a thriving business, he is happy with short-term relationships and jaded women. Paul has been betrayed too many times to trust a woman, but Rachel intrigues him. She isn't like any other woman he has ever known. Can he learn to trust her?

Forgive Me
Growing up, Mitch Carson had always dreamed of leaving Holton, Texas, traveling the world, and writing life altering stories. As an investigative journalist, he made those dreams come true, but he left behind the only woman he ever loved. That was his greatest mistake. Mitch has returned home to see if she can forgive him for leaving her when she needed him the most.

In high school, Emily Fairview had fallen deeply, madly, and completely in love with Mitch. The two of them planned a life together far away from Holton, but when Emily’s family needed her, she chose to stay. Mitch chose to leave. Fifteen years later Mitch is back and wants a second chance, but Emily doesn’t know if she can forgive him.
