Cat got your tongue?

Tessa Williams is looking to make her mark outside the family business, and the unusual landlocked paddle wheeler she spots in Haines, Alaska, strikes her as the perfect location. Only the owner is being difficult, refusing to sell. Still, she’s sure that replacing her written queries with a little in-person charm is all she’ll need to shortly have her Eco-tour B&B on the road to success.

Local wolf-slash-owner of said vessel, Mark Weaver, isn’t hanging on to the landmark building out of spite. There are more reasons for holding back the sale than are easily explained on paper. A face-to-face meeting to resolve the matter only confounds it—when Mark recognizes Tessa as his mate.

But she’s a cat…and cats don’t do insta-mates.

The sexual attraction between them isn’t in question, just everything else. He wants her. She wants twue wuv. His wolf can’t figure out what the holdup is. Her cat thinks the entire situation, and the pack, are rather amusing.

Somewhere in here is the beginning of a beautiful relationship—if they don’t drive each other mad.

Warning: One hyper cat, one laid-back wolf. Inappropriate use of permanent markers, and a heaping side dish of cat/dog jokes. Shenanigans (read: nookie) in front of a roaring fire. Spiced liberally with sarcasm. Enjoy!

~*~*~*~*~

We are giving away three digital copies (kindle or nook) of WOLF NIP! To be entered, just tell us your favorite type of shifter. Winners will be drawn on Thursday so please check back then to see if you’ve won. Good luck and ARWHOOO! (Or is it meow now? 😉 )

Alisha Rai shared her newest cover on Twitter this morning! She’s having website woes so no blurb yet. I love the subtle sexiness of this cover! And since I haven’t found an Alisha book yet that I didn’t enjoy, this is at the top of my TBB list 😀

FallingIntoParadisesmallSophie Redmond knew betrayal, she knew mistrust. She knew everything that was wrong with the world, until Damon Watson charmed his way into her life. The rules she used to shield her heart were broken one by one, as Damon showed her compassion and kindness. When no one else believes in her, he shows her hope. But is hope ever enough? Damon knew trouble when he saw it. He was the sheriff. He could spot it a mile away and Sophie was trouble with a capital T. What was it about this City Slicker doctor that made him want to forget everything but those whiskey brown eyes and that honey blonde hair spilled against his naked chest. Can Damon put the past behind him and choose to love again?

Show me a good book and I’ll show you a good cook 🙂

Thanks for having me here today. It’s my absolute pleasure to visit and forgive me if I am a little jet-lagged due to the time difference- New Zealand is in a different time zone but I will try and keep up.

I’ve spent years figuring out the recipe for getting to the point when I could shout it from the rooftops that I’m a published writer and something that’s helped along the way has been this trick called layering your novel.

Everyone likes good food right? I would hope so. Well think if it this way. Writing the book is getting the ingredients for the story. So step one is write that darn book. The trick is- it doesn’t matter where the book takes you. When I wrote Falling into Paradise, someone was being mean to me so I killed her off. In the book off course, not in real life. But when I edited the book, I still killed her off but I softened her character, a little.

After you do the first draft,  the hard work begins. You look at plot, structure, character arc and all those goodies you learn about when you’re learning all about craft. Once you start writing,  you bring it into play.

Now here’s the awesome part, to layer and bring out the best in your story, at every point, you push and push hard, asking yourself, what’s the worst that can happen here? This gives you an edge and makes the reader turn that page. If you put tension and emotion on every page, I assure you, you will have people staying up at night to read the entire book.

So it doesn’t matter if you write absolute nonsense, as long as you can edit really well.
