Above & Below – Cover Reveal

I have been sitting on this sexy AF cover for over two months now!

TWO MONTHS! (that’s like a lifetime to this impulsive maniac)

I’ve only shared it with some of my closest author friends (and my husband who basically grunted and shrugged), but now I want to share it with the world.

Above & Below is the Prequel Novella to my debut contemporary romance series, The Mountain Misfits Motorcycle Club.

This series has been such a learning experience for me so far, and I cannot wait to start releasing it on August 8th.

This first novella is a teaser of what’s to come in the future and follows Gavin, the Vice President of the Misfits through his younger years, and Sloan, our tortured but feisty heroine through her time in medical school. They meet – and instalove! but their tryst is going to have to wait…

Here’s the damn cover already:

Created by the talented Melinda Burt at Pixel Perfect Publishing, I feel like the luckiest girl in the world. Her creativity and skills are AMAZING, and I am so glad I put this series in her hands.

Above & Below will be available at all major retailers starting August 8th for FREE but if you’d like to join my ragtag band of mountain misfit chicks and maybe snag an ARC here shortly, I’d love to have you on my mailing list. I promise I won’t spam you, EVER, and you won’t hear from me more than once a week. Plus, I have really cute dogs and I will gladly send you lots of pictures of them. Anyway – you can sign up for my mailing list HERE if you’re so inclined.

Acceptance + Self Indulgence

Here is a fun fact that I just have to accept:

First blog posts are generally garbage, so I’m just gonna rip off the band-aid and get it over with.

Accept that you all don’t know me from Adam and so the fact that you’re even taking the time to read this is seriously flattering. (And if nobody reads this, then it’s straight up self-indulgence, and I’m not even kind of ashamed.)

Accept that I actually have been an indie author for some time now but on a much smaller (and smuttier) scale. I don’t kink-shame, but I think it’s safe to assume that most of my readers from that niche aren’t over here looking for motorcycle man-chests, sultry and strong heroines, and all the feels.

Accept that you have to learn to walk before you learn to run…

Although most of what I do is speed hiking

but if you want to learn to fly that requires a whole different set of beliefs.

Accept that I cannot function without a creative outlet, and writing romance novels allows me to scratch that itch every single day.

Accept that my first books aren’t going to be mega-hits because I am still learning how to write to market

and romance those beats

and make friends on social media without coming off as… uhhhh… yeah.

via GIPHY

Accept that I’m sure I can slap a brand on all this, on me and all my crazy and complexities, but it might take me a few tries to see what feels right.

Accept that sometimes you have to let the weeds grow out a little bit until you can tell where the wildflowers are.

This is my self-indulgence post. I promise next time around, I will shift my focus to the finer things of my craft, like melting your panties off. (Too soon?) But honestly, I do have a cover reveal coming up for ya before the end of the weekend, and it’s SO FFFFFFFing SEXY. 

Now that I got all that out of me, I can get to work. And by “get to work,” I mean chug cold brew, pet my dogs, pretend like my laptop is not charged enough to accomplish anything at 49%, go to the bathroom, huff some bergamot oil, power nap, more oil, Doritos, and maybe by 8PM I’ll be ready to roll. Or ready for a beer. Accept that this is my process (and that my editor is gonna charge me whether or not I send him my stuff on time).
