I took on this challenge back in October as my writing/author friends joined the #NaNoWriMo this month. We each had our own challenges. But they both involved writing and a commitment. I wasn’t sure I could do a blog post a day for a whole month and honestly, I didn’t but I did make thirty blog entries this month. So for that I am proud of myself for making the commitment and for finishing what I started.
My goal was to share more information about authors I love to read, and I have. I have shared author and book information as well as found new followers here on my blog. I need to now go and follow a bunch of friends that I haven’t had the time to go check out their blog pages.
Thank you for taking this ride with me. I am glad I did this.
If you love your romance and erotica to be a little rough, then meet Jared Morgan from The Jared Effect by Jake Malden.
The Jared Effect is comprised of three connected stories about women’s encounters with roguish traveling musician Jared Morgan. Each is written from the point of view of a different female protagonist and chronicles how her life is revolutionized by meeting him.
In Jared Hitches a Ride artist Vanessa and college-girl Mallory pick up Jared when they see him hitching on the Interstate. Vanessa flirts with Jared, but refuses to have sex with him unless he conspires with her in a seduction of Mallory; the college girl is unhappily engaged to her feckless high-school sweetheart and Vanessa sees this as an opportunity to wake her up to other opportunities. Jared employs all his cunning in breaking down Mallory’s resistance, culminating in a wild motel-room tryst with Vanessa which eventually draws in an aroused and enthusiastic Mallory. He secretly records part of the encounter on Mallory’s fiances voice mail, as a result of which Mallory is forced to confront her doomed relationship and with Vanessa’s encouragement to embark on a new chapter in her life.

If you are on Twitter you have power. Real power. It is easy. One button. That’s all it takes. One click. It is called the Retweet button. It is simple. Quick. It looks like this:
You are asking why this is such a big deal? Who cares about the retweet button?
If you are an Indie Author trying to spread the word about your new book release then you care.
And your followers should care too!
The life of a tweet, according to wishpond.com, is 18 minutes. It is hottest in the first seven minutes. Then it slowly loses it’s spark and sizzle. Soon it disappears. Gone. Never to be seen again most likely. So if your tweet wasn’t seen the first time it went out, it is lost. Right? This is where retweets are so important.
A few weeks ago, I did a post on my blog for the book release of an Indie Author. I made five different posts on my blog and each time, that post made a tweet on my Twitter account. I then went into my Hootesuite account and scheduled those tweets to post again 5 times each. So I posted my own tweets 25 times on the TL at various times during the day. What does that come down to? At that time I had 1048 followers who saw my 25 tweets so my tweets hit the TL 26,200 times or 26,200 different opportunities for that new book to be seen by someone who might not know the author. And that was just mine alone. Continue reading “The Power of “RT – Retweet” DO IT! #NaBloPoMo”
Now, in the enticing continuation of New York Times bestselling author Tara Sue Me’s Submissive Series, the submissive and her dominant explore just how long they can make the pleasure last…
It started with a hidden desire.
Millionaire CEO Nathaniel West has always played by his own strict set of rules, ones he expects everyone to follow—especially the women he’s dominated in his bedroom. But his newest lover is breaking down all his boundaries and rewriting his rule book.
Abby King never imagined that she would capture the heart of Nathaniel West, one of New York City’s most eligible bachelors—and its most desirable dominant. What began as a weekend arrangement of pleasure has become a passionate romance with a man who knows every inch of her body and her soul – yet remains an enigmatic lover. Though he is tender and caring, his painful past remains a wall between them. Continue reading “The Training (The Submissive Series #3) ~ By: Tara Sue Me #NaBloPoMo @TaraSueMe”
I couldn’t put The Submssive down when I finally started reading it. I couldn’t wait to read this book. I figured it was a continuation of the story. I was pleasantly surprised to see that it was Nathaniel’s POV (point of view) from the first book.
Nathaniel West doesn’t lose control.
As the playboy CEO of West Industries, he governs the boardroom during the day; as a strict dominant with exacting rules, he commands the bedroom at night. He never takes on inexperienced submissives, but when Abigail King’s application comes across his desk, he breaks his own restrictions and decides to test her limits.
Abby’s combination of innocence and willingness is intoxicating, and Nathaniel is soon determined to collar her as his own. As long as she follows his orders and surrenders herself fully to him, no one will get hurt. Continue reading “The Dominant (The Submissive Trilogy #2) ~ By: Tara Sue Me #NaBloPoMo @TaraSueMe”
This was a book I would look at on the shelves at Target each time I went to the store. I kept telling myself I would read it when I had more time. Then then the second book in the series came out, The Dominant, and then I really wanted to read the books. So I bought them and treated myself to the series since by the time I bought them all three books were available. So glad I did since I could not put them down. Here is the information on the first one:
The first in Tara Sue Me’s seductive and scandalous series that has enthralled millions…
Abby King has a secret fantasy.
New York knows Nathaniel West as the brilliant and handsome CEO of West Industries, but Abby knows he’s more: a sexy and skilled dominant who is looking for a new submissive. Yearning to experience a world of pleasure beyond her simple life as a librarian, Abby offers herself to Nathaniel, to fulfill her most hidden desires.

As I mentioned before, some friends are participating in the NaNoWriMo this month. One friend in particular, has given me the amazing privilege to read the work as she writes. I am more and more impressed as each chapter is written and the story unfolds. All the little details she inserts, the twists and turns the story takes and how real the characters are becoming. I am not sure who is having more fun, her or me? Except that she knows how this ends and I don’t and I am sitting here, not very patiently waiting for the next chapter. Waiting to see what “he” does and how “she” reacts…and if it is all a dream I will send myself in an email to the author and strangle her neck when she opens the email. No, just kidding. But I won’t be very happy. But in the end, the author is the author and it is their story to tell. And I am enjoying the growth of the author and the characters in the story. Thank you for taking me on your journey with you.
