Badurday- February 2, 2013- New Release

It seems all I do is talk about new releases. I’ve been on a short story kick lately and this one that released this week is no exception. In fact, the one that I’m going to chat about here is under 40 pages. The final editor even left me a comment that said she loved it so much that she wished it was longer. I’m thrilled with that since I’ve been going through another one of those spells about if I’m spinning my wheels! LOL! We writers and our angst about being good enough, huh?

This story is set in the 1920s and the characters are named after my great-grandparents who I loved dearly. This is a mystery/romance and I hope the readers love it as much as I do. The cover is awesome and the cover artist, Dawne Dominique nailed my vision of this story.

In 1924, Carver Fowler, a young man raised on his family’s farm in North Alabama, has long been in love with one of the girls who lives in town. Her name is Mallie Phillips. Mallie has always treated Carver as beneath her notice since in her opinion he’s nothing but a country yokel. The county’s fall festival is soon and, as a joke, Mallie is dared by a friend to ask Carver to be her date to the party. Mallie takes her up on the dare and visits Carver to invite him to accompany her to the festivities. In the midst of all the intrigue about whether Carver will be her date or not, a young man is killed and another is attacked. Carver becomes a suspect and Mallie begins to understand that Carver may not merely be the backwoods boy she thought he was.

Badurday- November 10, 2012- New Release

Sorry I’m late. I didn’t have access to a computer to upload this video earlier. I have a story out with Sweet Cravings Publishing on Tuesday, November 13. It’s available for pre-order now here.

Here’s the book trailer for it. Doesn’t the guy on the cover kind of look like David Tennant, the tenth Doctor on Doctor Who? A tainted Keitre is like the yeti of the south.

Badurday- September 8, 2012- Clive Owen- Well, Sort Of.

I’ve had a busy week. I had a short story released by Sweet Cravings Publishing called Surf Break. It’s set on my hometown beach and it’s a quick, fun little read and even Ernest Hemingway makes an appearance. Hehehe. Arabella once told me that I write like a man and I got all offended until she said the man was Hemingway. Since she writes all flowery like Faulkner, I could see how she might think my more straightforward prose would be like our buddy Ernest. I couldn’t resist adding a flavor of the man to this lil ole story. Buy link

I didn’t bring you here to talk about Hemingway though, so forgive my little tangent. My other new release this week is a much longer story. It’s called Hot Pursuit and it’s from Ellora’s Cave. It spans the globe- from New York, to Rio and then to several places in Europe. It’s quite an international chase. I started this story in late 2009 with the initial premise coming from a conversation with Rita Bay and it’s gone through many incarnations since then and is nothing like Rita envisioned when we had that talk.

I now believe it’s one of the best stories I’ve written. The inspiration for the hero was our previous badurday boy, Clive Owen. He’s absolutely perfect as the hero, an Interpol agent. If you’ve seen the film, The International (which came out after my first draft of this story) or Derailed, this story calls for the same type of action from the hero.

My friend, Darlene Henderson, even wants me to send a copy to Clive’s agent. The hero and heroine are both over thirty so I think he could pull off the role easily but I’m not so stalkerish as to really send to his agent. Thanks to Darlene, though, I do know who he is. LOL!

Here’s the book trailer and cover. And oh, yeah, a little bit of Clive (who also played Hemingway in a film- see how it all works together?).
