When just about two years ago, I brainstormed The WG2E – The Writer’s Guide to Epublishing – the destination site for all-things-Epublishing, I never in my wildest, most spectacular dreams imagined I’d end up creating a site which now gets over one million hits per month and is the first visit of the day for over 3500 Indie Epublished Writers and Authors!

At The WG2E, it’s all about finding ways to Pay It Forward, both to our fellow writers and to all our superfab readers, like you RG2E Peeps, too.

We simply luuuvvv treating readers to great books for great prices and helping our fellow authors find new readers around the globe.

With this Sixth Edition of our WG2E All-For-Indies Anthologies, we’re treating you to a terrific, one-of-a-kind approach to the anthology concept.

You’ll get a variety of genres all packaged together as a wonderful way to discover authors new to you and a variety of story lengths – from short-shorts, to short and novella length too!

In addition, each WG2E Anthology is based on a different theme, and we’re over the moon to offer you unique perspectives on these superfab fun themes.

Here’s what we mean by that…

In our WG2E Martini Madness Anthology, we’re treating you to stories that yes, have a martini element – and for some reason, it seems we really luuuvvv appletinis. But, you’ll never think of martinis in quite the same way, appletini or otherwise!

For example:

“Think Castle and Beckett, The Good Witch, Maxine and Under the Mistletoe Martinis…in Whoville” for D. D. Scott & David Slegg’s STUCK WITH SLEIGH BELLS

“Aliens too enjoy a good appletini” for Anne R. Allen’s ALIEN APPLETINIS

“Even Death enjoys a nice lemon martini” for Lizzie Starr’s DEATH AND THE DRYAD

“Sometimes the manliest of men fall for a super-steamy appletini” for Liz Mattis’ REAL MEN DON’T DRINK APPLETINIS

Happy Holidays, Happy Reading and Welcome and or Welcome Back to our WG2E All-For-Indies Anthologies!

Sometimes fate needs a little help…

Jonah Wallace knows what it’s like to grow up without love. Despite having more money than the Queen of England, his childhood was cold and stale as he grew up in boarding schools. He’s dedicated his life to helping homeless and displaced children find the love and support they need by creating the Haven House Foundation, work that resulted in him being Knighted by the Queen.

Now that he’s living in America, his work is going along just fine…until his grandfather gives fate a little nudge by insisting he take a wife before he can inherit.

Coffee shop owner, Maggie Bonelli, is pregnant and the baby’s dad has gone AWOL. She knows too well the pain of growing up without a daddy. So when Jonah Wallace comes into her shop proposing marriage for a year, she takes him up on his offer, even if it’s only for a year. Live in a mansion and give her baby a name and a daddy to call his/her own. But can they keep their perfect arraignment strictly business…or will fate’s helping hand bring them love at last?

Happy Tuesday, RG2E Peeps!!!

I’m over the moon to give you a Sneak Peek ofHULLABALOO AND HOLLY TOO – my first Cozy Cash Mystery Christmas Novella – coming  any moment now to all Ebook Platforms…

On Amazon

B&N Nook




Think Will and Kate gone Bond, James Bond in the Grinch’s Who-ville.

Here’s a Sneak Peek at Chapter One:


And here I thought livin’ in a castle was gonna be rough.

Want to know what’s worse?

Or at least has the potential to be worse?

Goin’ home for the holidays.

That’s my current crazy trip…and when that trip includes your new fake husband, who has yet to meet his crazy-ass in-laws, the threat to your sanity ratchets up to unheard of levels.

But wait…there’s more.

And no, that’s not a line from my favorite infomercial, no matter how much I wish it was.

This is reality. My quirky-crazy reality.

So what happens when your pretend spouse finds out his in-laws are not your average in-laws?

What if…and I’m just gonna toss this idea out there.

What if…they’re Mr. and Mrs. Claus?

At least that’s who they think they are.

I know, I know…it sounds like something from a Tim Allen Santa Claus movie, right?

Well, it ain’t.

It’s my hullabaloo of a Whoville life.

Think of my world as a for-real Dr. Seuss Whoville, but one with a cast of characters makin’ it feel very Christmas with the Fockers…all year long.

And I know what you’re thinkin’…

More egg-nog, please.

And cheers to that…’cause y’all are gonna need it.


***Note: For those of you who have CARATS & COCONUTS, I included this little holiday gem in the beginning of that book too! But, this holiday season, I’m giving HULLABALOO AND HOLLY TOO its own Special Edition Release with fabulous extras!!!

For all of you RG2E Peeps who are Stuck with a Series Fans…STUCK WITH SLEIGH BELLS is Here!!!

Happy Monday, RG2E Peeps!!!

What if Santa had a double knee replacement and had to put his BFF Father Time and The Mom Squad’s Grams in charge of The Big Red Ride?

On Amazon

B&N Nook




That’s exactly what’s happened in our very first Stuck with a Series Christmas Novella!!!

For STUCK WITH SLEIGH BELLS, think Castle and Beckett and The Good Witch in Whoville…

Here’s a Sneak Peek at Chapter One:


“Ring-a-ding-ding, Y’All!”

And no, I ain’t ringin’ some bell at a Salvation Army pot. Although, I do take part in that each holiday season.

But not today, folks. Not today.

I’m jinglin’ these damn sleigh bells as fast as my scrawny arms can shake ‘em ‘cause word has it that doing so this time of year could have some major ramifications.

First of all, it damn sure beats swallowing rocks. Would you believe that’s what those stupid ass Neanderthal cave men used to do? Before they figured out how to make bells, they swallowed rocks so their distended bellies would jingle when they were ready to mate. Romantic, right?

So, anyhoo…let’s get to my bells. Oh, but first, I’d better tell ya a bit about me.

I’m Lucy Weiss, retired from running my award-winning Meat n’ Three Diner in Nashville, Tennessee. Yep. Right there in Music City sits my diner, Lucy’s LunchBox Cafe. Every day, we serve up the Holy Trinity of White Vegetables – mac and cheese, white beans and mashed taters – plus the meat of your choice, barbecued, of course. Thus, we’re a Meat ‘n Three Diner. I can never understand why people can’t figure that out. But anyway, I’m Lucy. Although, my friends and family just call me Grams.

I guess I’m also a bit of what kids nowadays call a Quant. That’s a fancy name for one helluva computer genius – aka hacker. I can totally rock ‘n’ roll across any keyboard. And I can do things you ain’t never seen with a mouse.

Now then…about these bells…

I have it on good authority that ringing sleigh bells with gusto can not only ward off bad luck and evil spirits, and trust me, in this family, that’s important stuff. But also, these bells can attract meteorites!

Now, how cool would it be to see Santa Claus comin’ to town ridin’ the big ass tail of a meteorite?!

Okay. Just kidding…sort of. That’s not the reason I’m ringin’ bells. But, for the record, I do think Santa arriving by meteorite would be totally awesome.

And, since I’m gonna be piloting his sleigh this year, I do have a say in its operation. That’s right. You heard it straight from the main elf’s mouth. I, Lucy Weiss, am finally going to be able to check off the top item on my Bucket List, which is to be at the helm of Santa’s sleigh on the most magickal night of all nights. Yes indeed, hold onto your Santa hats! I’m in charge of this year’s Big Red Ride.

I’m so excited about this opportunity that I could stand out here, at Santa’s North Pole, along the fabulous shores of Lake Michigan, and jingle these damn bells all day long!

But wait…there’s more!

I’ve also been told by one of my sources that, if I’m the first sleigh bell dingler of the season, I’ll herald the arrival of Dietger, the gaily-clad King of Winter and his splendiferous Ice Court. Now, mind you, I’m a huge fan of the Ice Capades, but I’m thinkin’ this might even top that. Who’d settle for just reindeer when you could have reindeer on your roof-top and the Ice Capades too?!

That brings me to exactly why I’m putting everything I’ve got into shakin’ these bells.

I also have my own King of Winter, and he’ll be my sidekick in this grand adventure. That would be my significant other, and Santa’s BFF, Father Time. I hooked up with him last year during one helluva holiday hullabaloo right here at George and Suzie Witherspoon’s gingerbread house – aka Santa and Mrs. Claus’ North Pole.

But my Babycakes, Father Time, has some serious issues. Ever since Baby New Year busted his hourglass, he’s been in quite a funk. Nobody messes with Father Time’s scythe or his hourglass. And talk about bad timing. We’ve got exactly one month to pull off Christmas, so timing is EVERYTHING!

Luckily though, I’ve now got him trained better than one of Pavlov’s dogs. No more of that “like sands through the hourglass” soap opera baloney. In a manner of speaking, he’s been saved by the bells. Well, that or he’ll be salivating like hell.

Here he comes now…

Poor guy. He looks like he’s in a drunk and dazed stupor. Speaking of which, he drinks way too much of that silly elf Wanda Lu’s brandy and cocoa. Well, at least it takes his mind off of that damn hourglass. And…it makes the stress of being in charge of The Big Red Ride somewhat tolerable.

Now then…who would like an Ebook Gift Copy of STUCK WITH SLEIGH BELLS?! Let us know below, and you just might win one!!!

BAH, HUMBUG! (A Romantic Comedy Christmas Novella)

Lexi Anderson is an up-and-coming, Martha Stewart-type TV hostess whose two kids love the Jared Strong adventure novels, which happen to be written by their new neighbor, Kyle Miller.

For the first time in his writing career, Kyle has writer’s block–until he sees the snowman on his lawn and realizes it’s the perfect solution to his plot problem. He digs in and discovers two things: one, his villain’s weapon will fit inside a snowman’s body, and two, this particular snowman was supposed to be the backdrop for Lexi’s next show.

From this improbable beginning comes friendship, but can there be a happy ending for a woman who is afraid to get close again and a man who has shadows from his childhood?

Families join together and hearts are healed as this couple goes walking in a winter wonderland.

It’s a novella of about 100 pages.

Delivering Daddies isn’t Santa’s bag.

But this Santa has a plan…

Kyle Preston knows what it is like to be abandoned too. Luckily he found the support of loving adoptive parents and has turned himself into one of the most successful Real Estate developers in town.
