Blog Hops and Valentines Day

Hello everyone! Wow, I can’t believe that Rawhide Angel hs been out for two weeks now. I’ve been waiting sopatiently for a review about this book to come out(yeah, right) and I finaly got a small review. I received 5 stars form a reader and can’t be happier. I also found out that Rawhide Angel is a best seller on All Romance Ebooks as well as on Bookstrand. I’m beyond thrilled.With my new job I’ve been so out of touch with the writing community and really haven’t been writing much lately but now that my latest release is doing so well I think it’s time I get back to writing.

In the mean time, I’m doing a few Valentine Day blogs. The first bloghop I’m doing is hosted by Under the Covers and has over 71 authors and bloggers participating!

The next bloghop I’ll be doing is by the fabulous group at Just Romance Me. This blog is wonderful!!!

New Cover!!

Hello everyone. I am posting from my phone again so hopefully everything shows up. I’ve been working on my last Built Cowgirl Tough book for awhile. Finally after months of edits, galleys, and tears Rawhide Angel is ready for release. Late last night I received all the final details as well as my gorgeous cover. My last two covers were for books with a different publisher and well, not as sexy as my covers from The Wild Rose Press. So here you all go, all the nitty gritty details as well as the cover !!

Blurb:

With her father’s gambling debts about to ruin the family ranch, Saige Thomely is determined to do whatever or whomever it takes to cover the debts. Unfortunately for her, one man is a sure bet, the one cowboy she’s tried to ignore for six months. The same cowboy who makes her body and heart flame to life with each look. Saige is prepared to offer herself in exchange for the money to cover the debts, but what she’s not prepared for is losing her damaged heart to another cowboy. Night after night, for half a year, Chet Haskins has dreamed of having the blonde and sexy as sin Saige Thomely in his bed, writhing under him. At long last his dreams might become reality, only Chet’s heart wants more than just a few nights of steamy sex. But will the ghost of past relationships come between them? Or can Chet show the passionate Saige he’s truly the one to save her ranch and her heart?

Edits Are Fun, Yeah Right!

Hello everyone! So I just wrapped up edits on my upcoming release, Rawhide Angel. Right now the copy editor has it and copy editor willing I’ll be done with that book after a great read through. While I wait my wonderful critique partner, Rebecca Zanetti mentioned a romantic suspense book that I had started awhile back. I actually wrote around 16k on the book before seeing something shiny and forgetting about it :). Now I’m reading through it and well, I like it. I mean I like all of it except my bad guy.

Sometimes I see these series in my head and honestly believe that I can pull off a trilogy. I had this in mind when I began this book. In fact, I know each character what their beginning is, their arc, and their end. All except my bad guy that is. Holy crap its hard to make a bad guy really bad. I mean, yeah I can say he’s just insane but come on, that’s just not gonna fly with an editor. Plus, I have three bad guys but only one is the ultimate villan. Oh I’m so out there on this one!!

One day I’m going to write a book on all the comments I make to myself while writing as well as all the comments that Rebecca says. Some of them make me want to scream, others actually help. While I was stressing out Sunday on how to manage my bad guys and their stories Rebecca simply said, “Tell one story at a time. Focus on one bad guy in each book.” Oh soooo simple. I’m very blessed to say that I am PLOTTING the first book out with limited book two focus. Of course I have to add a little here and there to work with in book two but I’m so happy now that my mind is not spinning out of control.

While I have your attention however, I’d like to say I wish you all a happy holiday season. Recently while I was working I was told that one of my students wasn’t allowed to participate in anything to do with Santa Claus. At first I thought it was because her religion didn’t believe in the celebration of Christmas. Over the years most religions have conceded that scholars are right and Christ wasn’t born in the fall and that early catholics picked the time to celebrate his birth to offset the pagan holidays. So I just assumed that was what it was with my student. However, I was wrong. Her family simply doesn’t believe in the commercialism of Christs birthday. They don’t believe in Santa or what he stands for. So, just out of curiosity I wonder what you all think? Me, I see what they mean but I also believe that Santa is a great tool. I told my children that Santa helps deliver presents and spread God’s message.

 

Thanks all,

Sayde Grace
