“Why Buy a Christmas Book Now?” RG2E Featured Author Stacey Joy Netzel has the Answers

Happy Sunday, RG2E Peeps!

Welcome to The RG2E and/or Welcome Back!

“Why Buy a Christmas Book Now?”

Here’s the fabulous scoop from RG2E Featured Author Stacey Joy Netzel.

Take it away, Stacey…

10 Great Logical Valid Reasons to Buy a Christmas Book Now

It’s that time again—the kids are barely back in school, bikini’s are on sale, and sparkly, jingle bell-y decorations have taken over the store shelves. Songs meant to be played AFTER Thanksgiving flow from the loudspeakers, driving us insane because all they do is remind us we don’t have enough time before the holiday to get everything we want done done AND clean the house.

So forget it. Grab yourself a cup of tea, coffee, wine—whatever trips your trigger—and snuggle in your favorite reading spot with my a good book. You shouldn’t need an excuse, but if someone does question you, feel free to use any of the following reasons to explain why you bought a Christmas book now.

  1. Beat the rush. In a few months everyone will be doing it and you can then brag that YOU started the craze.
  2. Everyone else is doing it—you don’t want to get left behind, do you?
  3. Santa Butch is making his list and checking it twice. If he sees you’re in the spirit, he’ll make sure you Match-Up on the right side.
  4. It’s cheap. (Well, my book is anyway. Mistletoe Mischief $0.99 at Amazon, BN, Apple, ARe, Kobo, SW)
  5. Hey, look at that—you matched your shoes today! I say you’re on a roll and buying my a Christmas book will only make your day better.

(Hold on…you checked your shoes, didn’t you?)

  1. Oranges are orange. (This reason is really quite self-explanatory.)
  2. Heartwarming stories are perfect ANY time of the year.
  3. When someone catches you under the Mistletoe you can create a bit of Mischief. (Tell them about the great Christmas book you read—what’d you think I meant?)
  4. M&M’s melt in your mouth, not in your hands. It’s pure Magic.
  5. The song “I Want a Hippopotamus For Christmas,” makes you want to drop-kick the plastic reindeer in the store, but if you buy a great Christmas book now, it’ll help  relieve your stress, thus keeping you out of Mischief.

If any one of those reasons made you smile, laugh, roll your eyes, throw up, check your shoes, or cry, then it’s very important you don’t waste any time—get your copy of Mistletoe Mischief right away. Toads everywhere will be happy and so will I. (Read the book and you’ll understand.)

Christmas in July at the zoo is the last place single parents Eric Riley and Marissa Wilder expect to find love. Thanks to some mistletoe mischief in the form of their two young daughters and Santa, they discover mistletoe rules were not made to be broken.

You do remember it’s cheap, right? (The price, not the book! Seriously, the book was part of the Mistletoe Rules anthology that won the 2010 Write Touch Readers’ Award.)

Now it’s YOUR turn, RG2E Peeps. Get creative with your reasons to buy Christmas books now and I’ll gift up to 10 ebook copies of my other Christmas story, Dragonfly Dreams. But you have to work for it, sorry.


Forced to sell precious family heirlooms to pay for her mother’s cancer medications, Loral Evans swallows her pride when handsome antique dealer Jake Coburn offers her one thousand dollars for a dragonfly brooch they both know is fake. She simply can’t afford to walk away.

On the brink of bankruptcy, Jake is taking a huge risk on Loral’s costume jewelry. Then again, it’s Christmas, and he hasn’t been able to resist her since the first time she entered his shop. When he discovers new information about the brooch’s connection to the Titanic, Jake’s attempt to do the right thing just might cost him his business and a future with Loral.

What? You thought I’d give away Mistletoe Mischief? It’s only $0.99. Dragonfly Dreams is $2.99. See how I did the math for you? You buy cheap, I give high.

You’re welcome. Now go get your copy of of Mistletoe Mischief (a Christmas in July story) and Merry Christmas!

I fell in love with books at a young age, so for me the graduation to writing them was natural. An avid reader and fan of movies with a happily ever after, I am thrilled to call myself a full-time writer after 20 years as a travel agent. I write romantic suspense, contemporary romance, and the occasional paranormal short story just for fun.

RG2E Featured Author Emma Calin takes us From Hot Pants to “Shorts”

Happy Weekend, RG2E Peeps!

Welcome to The RG2E and/or Welcome Back!

Today, we’re goin’ across the pond to chat with UK Author Emma Calin.

Take it away, Emma…

I think I was born at the end of the 45rpm music single era. Maybe this is why I have always been drawn to the uncluttered ristretto fix of the short story. The French tradition of “chanson” where the singer tells a one off account has also been a big influence on me. More than anything, the style of Edith Piaf relating situations from working class life moved me as a young woman and led me to learn French.

My story THE CHOSEN is the playing out of an incident involving a couple of penniless men trying to get by. Their relationship is complex and their attitudes very different. Off stage there is a love story that dictates the action. It is also an attempt to look hard at our contemporary values and pose some questions.

The text comes with a free audio track. I have always believed in the spoken word which for me has a greater vibrancy than print alone. Literacy for the masses has a very short history compared to that of the story told around the fire or in a public place. A natural length in terms of attention span is about twenty minutes and this is what I have tried to achieve. There is also the aspect of accent and dialect. I find it very difficult to read speech written in dialect. For this reason THE CHOSEN is written in plain English whereas in fact the two characters have very different accents. Essentially the text and audio versions are entirely different pieces of work. I have been able to call upon the poet Oscar Sparrow to do the recording since he is used to public performance. Personally I love the job he has done.

Much of my writing career has involved the commercial short story. My first novel KNOCKOUT! is an unashamed commercial romance. The success of my short SUB-PRIME both in terms of sales, prize winning and critical reception has always surprised me. It is a story from the neglected side of the slave labour market. Since I wrote it, many revelations have come to public attention and I believe I have profited from that.  THE CHOSEN is lighter but contains no artificial or idealised romance. In fact, it is because life is like it is that there is a huge joy in writing unapologetic escapist and sexy love stories.

Price:  99c (USA) 77p (UK)  – Kindle format (including link to free MP3 audio file)

Genres: Short Story,  Fiction

Tags: contemporary fiction, audiobooks, urban life, working class,  poverty, self help, Thai brides

Book Blurb: THE CHOSEN by Emma Calin

A woman, a man, a van and a plan. When the luck runs out; the lucky walk away. A short story set in the extremis of everyday.

Amazon 5* Reviews:

R. Stephen Woodfin  (East Texas)  – Why love drives you crazy

The Chosen is the second of Emma Calin’s short stories I have read. Both are jewels that come at life from the underside of the leaf. They are stories of ordinary, common people who hold to their dreams and reach for things beyond their grasp.  The Chosen is a story about unquenchable hope, ill-founded on a love sure to go bad. It is about hare-brained schemes, not thought-through, sure to fail.  The first sentence sums it up: “Of course, there had to be a woman in the story.”
Of course.  I also enjoyed Oscar Sparrow’s narration of the free audio version of the story available to purchasers of the book.
Highly recommended.

Sheryl S. Brown (UK) – An Absolute Gem!

What a little gem of a story. After a busy weekend (and having a migraine), I wanted something that would take my mind off my headache – and something I wouldn’t have to actually read. I chose The Chosen – a story about two rogues who are completely relatable to – one about to make the big time, one a realist, both with suspect backgrounds. Emma Calin’s characterisation is excellent – I could totally visualise this pair, right down to the look in their eyes. The dialogue, too, was spot on, completely believable, and the narration was perfect. Loved the twist at the end. The line about the origins of the book (not wishing to give too much away) made me chuckle. Gripping. Intriguing. In short, loved it!

About Emma:

Emma Calin was born in London in 1962. She currently lives in France and the UK.

She has been writing since childhood and has won numerous local, national and international prizes for poetry and short stories.

KNOCKOUT! A PASSIONATE POLICE ROMANCE is a love story set against a backdrop of international gambling corruption and deception. Interpol cop Anna Leyton finds herself torn between love and duty when her professional and private life intersects. A video teaser for this book is available in the right hand column of this author page, below the blog – it shows a scene from the trailer of a bedroom with the caption “desire consumes”. This book is now available in both paperback and Kindle formats.

SUB-PRIME is a prize-winning hard hitting short story about courage, exploitation and love. It is a raw and brutal exposé of life at the bottom in the aftermath of recession. Available in Kindle format which includes a downloadable audiobook

THE CHOSEN is the brand new short story which is being given away here on RG2E.  It is set in modern times where working people struggle to keep their dreams alive. A world where the promise of love motivates desperate measures. Available in Kindle format, which includes a downloadable audio track.

RG2E Featured Author Laina Turner talks Overcoming Discouragement

TGIF, RG2E Peeps!

Welcome to The RG2E and/or Welcome Back!

And Welcome Backs goin’ out to RG2E Featured Author Laina Turner, who’s chatting with us about writers overcoming discouragement.

Take it away, Laina…

I’m thrilled to be here again at the RG2E and I have a few more spots scheduled this year so hopefully you won’t get sick of me.

One of the challenges we have as authors is having a thick skin and not letting the negative nelly’s get us down. In my indie pub author career I have had people comment about me not being a real author since I publish ebooks and those are self published, I’ve had editing nightmares and spent countless dollars trying to do the right thing in having my books professionally edited by editors that aren’t so professional, and then those pesky negative reviews. But because of the great support I get from other authors, reading blogs such as the sister blog to this one (The WG2E), and my family and friends I am able to shake the negative off. It might take a glass of wine or two but it enables me to keep plugging away at this very real career of being an indie ebook author and I love every minute of it.

So a big thank you to everyone who sends the positive vibes my way and enjoy the second book in the Presley Thurman Mystery series, Necklaces & Nooses, on me!

Necklaces & Nooses

Price: 99 Cents

When Presley’s boss is found hanging she thinks its suicide until the police discover its homicide. Who would want to kill a store owner? Presley’s not sure but she’s determined to find out.

RG2E Peeps: Let’s Talk Scents and Sensuality with Bestselling Author Joan Reeves

Happy Thursday, RG2E Peeps!

Welcome to The RG2E and/or Welcome Back!

Here’s a superfab fun take on Scents and Sensuality with Bestselling Author Joan Reeves.

Take it away, Joan…

http://www.JoanReeves.com

http://SlingWords.blogspot.com 

When I first began blogging about 8 years ago, I wrote a post about the best smells in the world. I listed 10 smells that I love. Fresh-mown grass, baking bread, and a clean baby were on the list. Would you believe that simple post has always been one of the most popular posts on my blog,  SlingWords. In fact, it continues to be read all these years later.

Since I’m finishing up my latest romantic comedy that has the science of smell and sex appeal as its information plot, I’ve been engrossed in smell research, one might say. Actually, I’ve always been fascinated by smell. Maybe it’s because I had a mother who wore the most wonderful perfume. Even as a small child, I noticed the way she smelled. When she hugged me, the most wonderful fragrance wafted from her. I can remember sniffing the air and asking her what smelled so good.

I couldn’t pronounce the name of my mother’s perfume then. I can now, but I won’t be purchasing the fragrance anytime soon. You see, Mom’s favorite scent was by Lucien LeLong. The parfum came in a bottle as beautiful as the smell. Recently, I priced it online and was dismayed to discover it was $250.00 for a quarter ounce.

I guess I’ve always had a love affair with fine perfumes and an interest in the science of smell.

Smell is the most primitive of all our senses. We inhale and odor molecules float into our noses, traveling back to the nasal cavity behind the bridge of the the nose. There, those odor molecules get absorbed by the mucosa containing receptor cells on which there are microscopic hairs called cilia. About 5 million of these receptor cells fire impulses to the olfactory bulb, or smell center, in the brain.

If you kill a brain neuron, it won’t re-grow. Neither will cells in the eyes or ears, but you grow new nasal neurons about every month. These neurons wave in the air much like sea anemones. When your olfactory bulb detects something, it signals your cerebral cortex and sends a message straight into your limbic system, that primitive, emotional part of the brain that houses your feelings and your desires.

If a visual stimulation occurs, your brain immediately starts trying to process what you saw. The same thing occurs if you hear something. Your brain goes to work immediately to interpret the sound. That doesn’t happen when you smell something. You don’t need your brain to do anything. What you smell creates an immediate effect that needs no translation, thought, interpretation, or anything. The primitive part of your brain reacts immediately.

This is why you can smell something and immediately be transported to your grandmother’s front porch when she served apple pie on Sunday afternoons when you were a small child. Or maybe you smell Crayons and you’re back in kindergarten. Smell is almost like a time machine. You smell, and bam! You remember an event, and the way you felt during that event. You can see it so clearly. It’s the sharpest, in-focus memory.

In my next romantic comedy, Scents and Sensuality (which I thought I’d have published by the time you read this post, but real life keeps interfering with my plans), the heroine, Amanda Whitfield, is a perfume designer. Now that’s a job I’d like to have! So, of course, I gave it to my heroine. Smell is closely linked to sexual attraction. Scent goes hand in hand with sensuality — thus the title.

Scents and Sensuality is a much expanded and changed version of an older print book, Say Yes, published quite some time ago. The inspiration for the heroine’s occupation was research I’d done, one might say, at my mother’s knee, breathing in the wonderful Lucien LeLong she wore. As an adult, I expanded my research into the science of pheromones, those below-conscious smells we all breathe in without knowing it.

When Amanda explains smell and the science of sex appeal to her Mr. Right, I hope you’ll find it as hilarious — and sexy — as I thought it was when I wrote the scene. Please look for Scents and Sensuality at all major ebook sellers.

In the meantime, I’m giving away 10 copies of Scents and Sensuality as soon as it’s available. Make a comment within 24 hours of this blog post. Then email me — Joan at JoanReeves dot com — to receive your free copy of Scents and Sensuality. In the subject box, put “Real Live Person–Free Book” and give me your preferred ebook seller and your registered email addy. I’ll send you a gift card for the free book as soon as it’s available.

***********************

This is fascinating scoop, Joan, and thanks sooo much for sharing it with us!

I’m mesmerized by scents as you are. In fact, I had a Great Aunt, who used an Estee Lauder night cream before bed, and I sooo loved that smell! I would look forward to spending the night with her so I could smell that fabulous cream and try some before she’d tuck me into bed.

Thanks bunches too for Ebook Gifting our fabulous RG2E Peeps! U rock!!!

RG2E Featured Author Diane McGyver talks Roosters and Telling Tales

Happy Hump Day, RG2E Peeps!

Welcome to The RG2E and/or Welcome Back!

Here’s a fascinating look at the story behind a storyteller. Please give a hearty RG2E Welcome to Canadian Author Diane Lynn McGyver.

Take it away, Diane…

Thank you, DD, for having me as one of your Featured Authors and giving me the opportunity to meet RG2E readers. It’s great to be here.

I was a shy child. Being number ten in an eleven-child household will do that to a girl. My older and louder brothers often had centre stage. They out-weighed, out-ate and out-spoke me. Often I settled for sitting off to the side and listening to their stories.

Don’t get me wrong; I loved being in the audience, and I hung on their every word. My brothers told terrific stories. They were tales of fantasy, humour, adventure and Aesop’s Fables all rolled in to one. In an afternoon I could hear about the biggest fish caught in Bissett’s Lake, that getting lost along the First River can take hours to get home and that no one—no one!—should use a match to see if there is gas in a discarded gas tank!

Many times I tagged along with my older siblings seeking to share their adventures and see firsthand how they captured their stories. During the many excursions, they’ve pulled me out of rivers, built rafts that would later sink, came to my rescue when I flew off a rope swing and into a tree where I was knocked out cold and helped me put out the fire that threatened to burn down a forest.

Although I had little airtime at home, I spun tales outside with the neighbourhood kids and in school. On rainy days as we sat in the elementary classroom eating our lunches, I told these stories to my teachers and classmates. I’m sure I stretched the truth a wee bit—what kid doesn’t to impress their peers and elders—and I’m sure there were truths told that my teachers didn’t believe possible.

I narrated a mixture of true tales and ‘based on an actual event’ stories, captivating them with the adventures of an outgoing kid who had many opportunities to learn from the mistakes of her siblings.

Today as I blaze my own path of raising a mixture of animals on a small farm, I don’t have siblings to make the mistakes first; I’m the only farmer in the family. It’s their turn to hear fascinating stories of how I keep a free-spirited goat in her pen and keep turkeys from walking over our vehicles. They chuckle as I tell them about how we transported the doe to the exhibition—in the back of my Ford Focus wagon—and how many bales of hay I can stuff into that vehicle—my record is ten with room for one passenger in the front seat.

All our animals have names and some of them have made it into my first romance novel, “Pockets of Wildflowers”.

Rooster Cogburn, our white Chantecler rooster, is a peculiar fellow who follows me about as I go from one pen to another, keeping an eye on me and over his kingdom…err so he thinks. He acts the same way in the book.

The natural course of life has a way of introducing us to many characters and unique stories. As a writer, I’m fortunate enough to have a place to let those characters shine and share those tales with others who might also think they’re interesting.

Description of POCKETS OF WILDFLOWERS: Heritage agriculturalist Olivia Luttlegrove still mourns the tragic loss of her parents. To aid in the healing, she has created a haven on the farm that’s been in her family for generations.

John is a drifter who arrives in Scarinish with a secret and a mysterious past. When Olivia hires him as a farmhand, the passion ignites.

Love blossoms, but Olivia’s independent ways and John’s reluctance to share his secrets threaten their future together. Outside forces wreak havoc on their private sanctuary, and the past rushes in. Can they accept the truth? Or will their love be lost forever?

Word Count: 36,366 words (a quick check on the Internet says this is a novella (under 40,000 words), although two sources stated novellas topped out at 25,000 words. So I’d say this is at the high end of the novella books.

Price: $2.99

My Bio:

Diane Lynn McGyver lives on a small farm in Nova Scotia, Canada where she raises Cotswold sheep, Toggenburg goats and heritage breed chickens. She’s been writing since she could hold a pencil. Her work has appeared in hundreds of publications since 1998.

Diane has also written a fantasy novel, Shadows in the Stone, and several short stories, Mutated Blood Lines, Dancing in the Shine and The Man Who Reads Obituaries. Look for her short story, Miss Tuttle’s Lemon Tarts, and her holiday romance, Twistmas, this fall.
