#SexySnippets Business and Pleasure

This snippet is taken from my current release, Business and Pleasure, enjoy!
“Don’t worry, I’ve been dealing with difficult men for years.” Mia shrugged as she sat down on the king-size bed and ran her hand over the expensive, satin sheets.

“That’s exactly why I hired you,” Lawrence told her, keeping a few feet away from her, not trusting himself not to make a move on her right there, right now. She pulled the band out of her hair and shook her hair loose. She must have known how hot she was.
“Is that the only reason you hired me, Mr. Russo?” Mia was batting her eyelids suggestively, her head tilted to the side, her long neck just willing him to kiss it.

The Best of Both Worlds, coming soon!

On the 18th of March, the second story in the Rags and Riches series will be released. I've been sitting here doing line edits and I suddenly got really excited when I realised how close that actually is! Here is the blurb-

A choice between two men? If only it were that simple.

Melissa Morgan seems to have it all…her modeling career is taking off and she's engaged to one of the most eligible bachelors in London. But when she finds Jonathan cheating on her again, Melissa finds solace in the arms of Riley, a sexy bar owner trying to recover from the heartbreak of his last relationship. Melissa shouldn't even want Riley, but she can't seem to stay away, especially when she finds in him everything that's missing in her relationship with Jonathan.

Melissa knows she has to make a hard choice, and when it comes to choosing between the life she's always wanted and the man she's falling in love with, she might find out that she can't have the best of both worlds.

That will have to do for now, but I promise to post an excerpt soon! Can't wait to celebrate another release day!

A Good Start

Since the release of Business and Pleasure last month I’ve been keeping busy with quite a bit of promotion. Being the kind of person that just rushes head first into things and then pauses to try and figure out what’s going on, I didn’t really have a clue when I first got my contract about what actually goes into getting your book out there after release day. I have to say though, even though it’s time consuming and a bit daunting at first, it can really be a lot of fun. I really enjoyed the book tour I did when my book was released, not only were the interviews and guest spotlights great to do for me, but I also got to discover some great blogs and the great people behind them. I’ve totally become addicted to social media sites again, and due to networking and some really great writers out there I now have a to-read list on my kindle as long as my arm. Probably both arms, actually.
But I promise that being an internet addict has not kept me from my writing, in fact, I’ve had a pretty constructive couple of weeks. I’ve been very busy working on the other books in the Rags and Riches series in their various stages of edits, revisions and creation, and also, I’ve been typing away furiously at another project which for now, sadly, remains without a title, because naming things seems to be a ridiculously hard thing for me to do for some reason. I’ll let you know a bit more about that one soon though!

One of the reasons I’ve been doing so much writing while I can is because I know I’ll be really busy again over the next few weeks as the release day for The Best of Both Worlds is starting to draw closer, yay! But I’m really glad that I’ve had such a productive start to the year, because that means that 2013 is really going to be an interesting year for me, with hopefully a couple more releases!

Ready for the weekend

Apparently there’s going to be a lot of bad weather and snow in my part of the world this weekend. So while I’m probably going to be stuck indoors I decided I’ll take advantage of it and I’m going to start writing the final instalment for the Rags and Riches series, my fiancĂ© has had some time off work this week to celebrate my sons second birthday, and we’ve had a lot of fun and spent a lot of money, but it’s time to get back down to work, and even though I’m a little bit sad that writing this story will mean that the writing part of this series is coming to a close for me, I’m super excited to finally get this down on paper (laptop).
The Rags and Riches journey actually began with this story. I used to write short stories (something I do want to get back into this year) but when I wrote this one I just couldn’t leave it as it was. I could see so much potential to the characters that were crisscrossing in and out of the story. So my 3000 words just didn’t seem adequate anymore. That was when I started writing Business and Pleasure, because the fiery best friend just wouldn’t get out of my head, and so Mia and Lawrence’s story was born.
So this weekend I’ll be opening my first draft, plus the seemingly endless pages of notes I’ve made along the way and I’ll be settling down to write it all out. This has got to be the most well planned story I’ve got so far, so I don’t see it taking me very long to write. This weekend will mean hard work, a lot of re-reading old material and an almost endless supply of coffee (I prepared well, I did a supermarket snow dash especially for it lol!)
So how will you be spending your weekend? If you’re like me and you face getting snowed in then I hope you, like me, have stockpiled the essentials J
