Welcome to The RG2E and/or Welcome Back!

And Happy Halloween early!!!

STUCK WITH A SPELL (The Stuck with a Series Book Two) is here for just 99 Cents!!!

On Amazon

Barnes & Noble Nook

Kobo

For Stuck with a Spell – Book Two of the Stuck with a Series – think Castle and Beckett gone-country with a bit of Bewitched tossed into the mix.

And for all of you D. D. Scott Bootscootin’ Books and Cozy Cash Mystery Fans, The Mom Squad’s Grams joins the fun!

The Stuck with a Series is Castle gone-country with The Mom Squad and a crazy-ass aunt also in the barnyard. For Stuck with a Spell – Book Two in the Series – there’s a bit of Bewitched tossed into the mix. Think hex an ex.

Nicky Blane, a Bestselling Author and Farmer-in-the-making, doesn’t need to look far to find creative inspiration for his novels. His crazy-ass Aunt Liza, a wanna-be witch, lives next door. But this time, she’s blown it big-time with a hex on her ex that’s gone a wee bit awry.

Think graveyards and Voodoo dolls, spell-casting and cauldrons, potions, raw emotions, and more.

Bonus Content Included:

A Sneak Peek at D. D. and David’s first Stuck with a Series Christmas Novella – STUCK WITH SLEIGH BELLS – is also included.

What if the guy in the big red suit is sick and it’s up to Grams and her Significant Other, Father Time, to save Christmas?

Here’s one of our first reader’s reactions (straight off of Facebook the morning after its release):

“…after cleaning my house last night I thought i’d lay down and take a lil peek at your new book…I finished it at 2 this morning…… I had to read chapter 7 twice because it was sooo dang funny! Another FABULOUS book!” — Gina Maples Mashai

David and I just had a ball writing this one!

Wouldn’t we all luuuvvv to be able to ‘Hex an Ex’?! LOL! Whether it’s an Ex Spouse, Ex Friend, Ex Family Member, Ex Mailman (damn, I’ve had some crappy ones…how ’bout u?). You name it…but wouldn’t we get a kick out of helping karma out a bit? You know…along these lines:

Anyhoo…

So you Hex an Ex…but what if your spell goes a wee bit awry?

That’s the story question for this one and the inspiration behind it.

It’s Your Turn, RG2E Peeps: Who’d like to Hex an Ex? C’mon, don’t be shy…

Oh, and in the meantime, who’d like an Ebook Gift Copy of STUCK WITH A SPELL? Let us know below, and you just might win one!

We’re Bringing Poetry to The RG2E…First Up, Felipe Adan Lerma’s 101 Sports Poems

Happy Hump Day, RG2E Peeps!

Welcome to The RG2E and/or Welcome Back!

We’re very excited to be bringing Poetry to The RG2E! Many of you have asked, so now we’ve got it!

First up…

On Amazon

B&N Nook

Google Books

Price: $4.99

Nearly twenty years of poetry writing is exhibited in the current collection of sports poems in “101 Sports Poems – The Poems.”

Baseball – Basketball – Bicycling – Bowling – Cheerleading – Coaching – Dance – Drill Team – Fishing – Football – Golf – Gymnast – Horse Riding – Hunting – Inspiration – Martial Arts – Running – Soccer – Sports Fan – Swimming – Tennis – Trainer – Volleyball – Wrestling – Yoga & more!

Many of the sports experiences expressed by these poems are the result of direct experiences by the author, Felipe Adan Lerma. Now older, Adan began writing these small poems in the early 90s, and has continued into what Adan calls, being “a young senior.”

For the casual, or initial reader, “The Poems” edition offers a straight-through reading enjoyment of all the various sports represented.

Some poetry is humorous, while others are seriously presented. After many decades of layman participatory sports, formally and informally, a wide gamut of feelings are found.
The list of sports poem topics includes, among many others, baseball, dance, horse riding, football, coaching, and volleyball.

Please read through the fully linked index for the complete list of sports topics and the titles within those topics.

A special section entitled “Singles” represents poems of which there is only one for that category. Major sports interests are included in this category, including basketball and gymnast.

About Adan:

Born and raised in Texas, and now a young senior living in Vermont, his wife Sheila’s home state, Adan brings a gentle infusion of yoga and fitness to bear on life long interests in writing, painting, dance, photography, and the arts in general.

Determined to learn about the ideas of Western Culture that have informed our civilization, Adan put himself through college with the help of his GI Bill benefits. More recently, he has added certifications in fitness and yoga.

His self stated mission on his website, reads, “a Beginner’s View : Integrating Yoga Fitness and the Arts.”

Welcome to The RG2E, Thriller Author…Sara Rosett

Happy Monday, RG2E Peeps!

Welcome to The RG2E and/or Welcome Back!

How ’bout we kick-off the week with an International Thriller

By: Sara Rosett

Price: $2.99

On Amazon , B&N Nook and Smashwords

Divorced, twenty-something Zoe Hunter is a free spirit who strings together a variety of odd jobs to generate enough income to keep her bank account barely in the black. She loves living on the edge, but her life becomes too precarious, even for her, when her ex, Jack, disappears. Then his business partner is murdered and twelve million dollars vanishes from the company bank account. The local police think Zoe may be involved in the murder while the FBI suspects Zoe knows where the money is.

With the investigation zeroing in on her, Zoe is afraid to trust the police or the Feds because they both see her as a person of interest. Zoe impulsively skips town in a search for answers that takes her from Las Vegas to Italy, but instead of tracking down answers, she only uncovers more questions. Who was Jack? Is he dead or did he fake his disappearance? What was he mixed up in—art theft, the mafia, espionage, or all three?

***Note: This is Book One in the On The Run Travel Thriller Series. The second book is Secretive (2013) and third book is Deceptive (late 2013).

Here’s the scoop on Sara:

A native Texan, Sara is the author of the Ellie Avery mystery series and the On The Run travel thrillers. As a military spouse Sara has moved around the country (frequently!) and traveled internationally, which inspired her latest travel thrillers. Publishers Weekly called Sara’s books, “satisfying,” “well-executed,” and “sparkling.”

Sara loves all things bookish, considers dark chocolate a daily requirement, and is on a quest for the best bruschetta.

Welcome to The RG2E and/or Welcome Back!

I can’t believe we’ll soon release our 5th WG2E All-For-Indies Anthology – be watching soon for our Spooky Shorts Edition (sometime early October, just in time for Halloween)! 🙂

***Note: The WG2E is The RG2E’s sister site.

When 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 that, in just year and a half, 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 of you superfab readers too.

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

With each 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 (500 words or less), to short and novella length too (up to around 16,000 words)!

RG2E Featured Author L.C. Giroux Shares How a Personal Ad Led to Romance and Her Romance Writing Career

Happy Sunday, RG2E Peeps!

Welcome to The RG2E and/or Welcome Back!

Here’s fun-tastic scoop from RG2E Featured Author L.C. Giroux on How a Personal Ad Led to Romance and Her Romance Writing Career! 🙂

Take it away, L.C…

I want to thank D.D. for having me here.

I am a romance writer. I didn’t start out a romance writer (does anyone?), but I know the moment I became one and it wasn’t with my first book. See, I met my husband through a personal ad. Tomorrow happens to be our 18th anniversary so I would definitely consider that piece a success. I put in a free eight line ad describing myself like a bottle of wine “1964 vintage, French/Italian blend, perfect for enjoying with cool jazz, rich food or a good book…” you get the idea. We were married within nine months, and no, I wasn’t pregnant.

As a writer, I sometimes get grief for the speed with which some of my characters meet and marry. In my latest story All In, Current and Gianna meet and marry within days -hey! It happens in Vegas! She may have been drunk but he wasn’t. When I get a review that says ‘stuff like that doesn’t happen in real life’, I just smile and say you never know. If a romance writer can’t believe in love at first sight and love everlasting, we are in big trouble. I know they are real because I live them everyday.

Does that mean there aren’t problems? Heck no! This is a romance novel, people! Of course there are problems. But what are a couple of goons that would like Gianna dead compared to a hot cowboy and the magic of a fairy godfather hair dresser (His words, not mine!). The truth is the goons are easy to deal with compared to the fears and insecurities of the hero and heroine. But isn’t that always the way? A damsel in distress may be a romance novel trope but we cause just as much trouble for ourselves in our own lives. But again, what are they to a romantic?

Now my guys are all romantics, though they try their damnedest to hide it. If your guy could use some ideas, or maybe you could, stop by my website and check out a little list I made up. It is perfect for printing and leaving on his pillow. Go ahead and circle a few things you like. It is like ordering Chinese takeout without the greasy fingers! You can get it here:

You can also stop by the blog and even use the contact me page to sign up for my newsletter. I gift bunches of books, so if you would like a little steamy romance in your life definitely sign up I promise not to spam you.

If you need a little extra incentive to believe in the power of love, go ahead, leave a comment below! I’ll be e-gifting copies of All In (Lovers and Other Strangers Book Five) to everyone that does.

L.C. Giroux is an Amazon Bestselling author in the US and the UK. She writes steamy contemporary romance because she doesn’t need a vampire to see the magic in the every day. Her previous career was writing laboratory protocols. Romance is much more fun. She is also a founding member of WG2E’s Beach Book Blast.

RG2E Featured Author Elaine Raco Chase Takes Us on Her Journey From Print Books to Ebooks

Happy Weekend, RG2E Peeps!

Welcome to The RG2E and/or Welcome Back!

Today, many authors are going from traditionally published print books to indie epublished ebooks, and here to tell us about her journey in that regard is the wonderful RG2E Featured Author Elaine Raco Chase.

Take it away, Elaine…

A big thank you to the generous folks (D.D. Scott and company) for allowing me to be a part of RG2E – I’m excited about introducing my updated print published titles to readers.

I’ve been writing contemporary romantic comedies since 1979 – when my first book, Rules of the Game was published as part of a new romance line – Candlelight – from Dell Publishing.  Things took off rapidly for me, and Candlelight quickly became Dell Ecstasy Romance line and my sexy romantic comedies found an audience.

Now – print published, sure. But eBooks … YES!  I was thrilled to get the rights back to all my romance novels and have been updating, enhancing, and adding to most of them.  Two romances: No Easy Way Out and One Way or Another – I’ve left as ‘classics’ – they were both written in 1982 and I thought, let’s leave them as a time capsule.  Was I surprised to see the themes in One Way or Another: foreclosure, credit card issues, high price of gas and food – were still on the front page of every newspaper and on everyone’s mind.  For No Easy Way Out, that theme: a woman who earned more than her husband and had a more impressive career, was also still front and center.  I guess the more things change, the more the stay the same!

Luckily, for all us romance writers and readers, the romance, the courtship, the falling in love and the happily ever after are the most important parts of the story! And when it comes to romantic comedy – I really feel ‘love and laughter’ make perfect bedfellows!

I hope you’ll take a look at my classic titles as well as my updated titles – Double Occupancy was updated to an erotic romantic comedy that has been on Face Book’s Top 50 Books to read after 50 Shades of Grey for 11 weeks!  No bdsm…just a Casey Reynolds – Keurig Killer and burned out reporter – who ends up having to share a vacation villa with alpha male Travis Craig…luckily he does do laundry and cooks – especially when he’s horizontal!

I also host The Author’s Corner – every Thursday night at 8PM EDT – on trianglevarietyradio.com  click on the blog talk bar!  It’s a great place to meet and talk with a variety of authors (print published & indie) and learn about new books.  I hope you’ll tune in – usually we have a lot of free books to give away!

For a give-a-way – 5 people will be gifted to a free copy of any of my titles (your choice) if you leave a comment.  Currently new and free on smashwords :  Blue Moon Sizzlers – along with Joan Reeves and Cynthia Wicklund – we have a fun-filled book of novel excerpts, recipes, folk lore surrounding the Blue Moon that was on my birthday this year!  Hope you’ll check it out!  https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/221672

D. D. Scott on “Where Do Authors Get Their Ideas”

TGIF, RG2E Peeps!

Welcome to The RG2E and/or Welcome Back!

One of the questions, as authors, that we get asked most is:

“Where do you get your story ideas?”

For me, story ideas often come from “the headlines,” but in addition, I also luuuvvv to ask quirky fab fun “what if” questions to get crankin’ on a new book.

Here’s an example from my short story STUCK WITH A SCHMUCK:

What if you’re stuck with a schmuck on Cupid’s Big Day?

That’s the superfab fun question I asked to get my muses goin’ on STUCK WITH A SCHMUCK, which is also the prequel to STUCK WITH A STIFF (Book One of my new Stuck with a Series).

We know there are fabulous stories about being with Mr. Right on Valentine’s Day, but what if instead of the prince, you ended up with the toad? 🙂

You can read this story, along with several additional and terrific Valentine-themed short stories in one of my WG2E Anthologies (the Viva La Valentine Edition):

Or, you can catch the story in STUCK WITH A STIFF, where it serves as the prequel:

Both books are available on Amazon , B&N Nook , and Smashwords (so Sony, Kobo, iTunes and more too).

It’s Your Turn, RG2E Peeps: Let me know below which of my books you’d like to know the “where I got the idea” scoop on, and I’ll fill you in…

Also, let me know if you’d love an Ebook Gift Copy of either the Valentine Anthology or Stuck with a Stiff, and you just might win one!
