Hello my beautiful puck bunnies!!!
Hope everyone is doing well. Me, I’m making it…lol. Things have been insane like I’ve said on my Facebook. Here is the post in case you missed it:
So I have a lot of work ahead of me. Copyedits, edits, and all things for Taking Shots, Trying to Score, Empty Net and the fourth book but the biggest thing is that I am working my butt off to get the Novella wrote because I want y’all to have it. So here is my goal: The book will have 15 chapters, and if I write a chapter a day that means I should have it done before March 8 since I take weekends off to let my brain rest. So that’s what I’m gonna do, I’m working for you amazing readers because I hate having y’all wait so long for something new from me. Hopefully Backup will hold you over until book 4. Bet y’all weren’t expecting this:
Teaser: Chapter one of Backup:
“I’m not sure what to say, I feel horrible for being the cherry on top of your horrible day cupcake.”
She flashed him a grin as she jokingly said, “I think the least you could do is tell me your name, so I can bad talk you later,” she added with a wink.
She could tell he wasn’t sure if she was joking or not, but soon he was smiling back at her.
Holding out his hand, he said, “Jordan Ryan.”
She looked down at his hand and then took it, enjoying the way his large hand swallowed hers. With heat and tingles running up her arm while her heart pounded louder than a drum, she felt as if something moved between them. Not knowing that it was, she gasped, “I’m Aynslee Shaw.”
Really rough but I wanted to give y’all something.
The reason I wanted to repost that was because of the teaser. I wanted everyone to see that I am working hard and really if I could give y’all the fourth book I’d give it to y’all now, but I cant. It’s the in the hands of the publisher and believe me guys, it’s gonna be amazing. No one mistakes, pretty new covers, paper backs, and all kinds of awesome stuff. Going with Random House was the best decision I have ever made besides marrying my husband, having kids, and loving hockey, oh and writing! Hehe. I know that some people have said that I have sold out because I did go with a publisher, but I don’t feel that way. I get a lot of crap for poor editing and being with Random House, that won’t happen. They are the best publishing house in the world; they are going to make me ten times better. I am working with the best editors, the most amazing editor and chief and then the greatest agent, I am truly blessed and I’m working hard to give y’all everything you want. Believe me, big things are coming and I won’t let y’all down.
Now the reason for this post is to let y’all know that the 4th books name has been changed. I loved Blue Lines, it fit the book and I was really upset that it had changed but I understand where my publisher is coming from and why it needed to changed. They obviously know what they are doing and I am hoping to be on the New York Times best seller list with Blue Lines, so I am going to trust everything they say. Without going into the details about why the name changed, I’d like to inform you that the new name is:
Crossing the Line
It fits, and when y’all read the book you’ll see that they were right! I’m really excited about this book and anything to make it more amazing than it already is, I’m down for! So yehaw!
Next I wanted to share all three new covers! They are so pretty and I’m so excited! I can’t wait for y’all to see Crossing the Line, it may be the hottest of all the covers. I know that Taking Shots and Trying to Score are coming out April 16th, and hopefully Empty Net will come out with them too. We are working hard to get everything done. It’s A LOT of work and without my agent, I’d be lost, that’s for sure. Lol. So here they are:
Aren’t they beautiful!??!? SO EXCITED!!!
Now, I’d like to let everyone know about my upcoming appearances. I will be at my local Hastings in Clarksville TN on May 18th 2013 from 1-3. I am working on one in Nashville, but for some reason, none of the bookstores in Nashville want to get back to me. Really weird, but its cool cause Clarksville is only 35 minutes from Nashville!!! I’ll let you know if anything changes but right now, Clarksville is the only place I am signing in. I am going to the RT convention, The Naughty Mafia Rocks Vegas convention, and the Indie Romance Convention. I have contact the BookBash, but haven’t heard anything back yet. I am trying so hard to get to every part of the US to meet everyone. I think we are going to MI for a family reunion this summer so I’ll be contacting a book store there to do a signing. New York is on my list and I’m trying hard to get there! I’ll let you know. If you know of somewhere that is doing a signing and would like me to come, please let me know!! I’d love to meet every single one of you!
Okay, so I am on a mission to get 3000 likes on Facebook. I am trying to come up with a huge giveaway but I am having trouble coming up with one. Before I’d try to give y’all the book sooner and all that jazz, but I can’t do that anymore. So I need help. I have so much swag now; it’s crazy and so exciting. I also have a picture of me and Shea, signed, and then one of Ellis, me and Josi, signed, that I could give away. I don’t know, what do y’all think? Give me something, what do y’all want?! Hehe.
Okay, that’s all I got today. I picked the winner for the Cupids hop; I sent you an email if you won’t. Make sure to check out Romancing the Jock because today my post went up and I am giving away a 10$ gift card. Thanks so much for being the best group of readers in the world and I’d love to hear from y’all. Make sure to comment and let me know what you think of the covers, the name change and what I should do to get followers. Thanks so much gals!!!
