Lucky 7!

Wow, I LOVE my author friends! For instance, the lovely Cara Bristol who tagged me in a fun game called Lucky 7!

Here's how it works:

  • Post seven lines from a current work by following these rules:
  • Go to page 7 or 77 in your current manuscript (fiction or non-fiction)
  • Go to line 7
  • Post the next 7 lines or sentences on your blog as they are (no cheating, please!)
  • Tag 7 other authors to do the same

So here's my Lucky 7 from my upcoming release (July 24th)
Just For Fun:

 “We barely know each other.”

“All I need to know is you dress well, you can schmooze with the best of them and the sex is out of this world.”

He grinned at that.  “There will be sex in Chicago?”

She took a step back, looked him up and down and sighed.  “Considering I’m in the middle of a bar and I’m annoyed with you and I still want to rip your clothes off … yeah, I’d say there will be sex in Chicago.”

And now I get to tag seven other authors!  Who should I pick?!

 Okay, here they are!

RG Alexander

Street Team! Just For Kicks!

I'm really excited to announce that some of my fantastic readers (with a special thank you to the fearless leader, Kim!) are getting together to form a street team for me!!

What's a Street Team?  

Well, straight from the authority that is Wikipedia J :  A street team is a term used in marketing to describe a group of people who 'hit the streets' promoting an event or a product. 'Street Teams' are promotional tools that have been adopted industry wide as a standard line item in marketing budgets by entertainment companies, record labels, the tech industry, corporate brand marketers, new media companies and direct marketers worldwide.”

When it comes to authors and books, a Street Team is a group of passionate readers who love the author’s work and want to help spread the word to help the author gain attention and more readers.

I really think it's going to be a lot of fun!
