August MONTHLY READS... #audiobooks @AudreyCarlan and J.J.McAvoy

I love summer reading. There's just something about lazy summer days, sitting outside on the beach or by a pool, or just lounging in the garden with a book.

I also listened to audiobooks while gardening. From mobsters to escorts, my reading choices were anything but innocent and sweet.

Dark, sexy and dangerous... McAvoy's Ruthless People series is a decadent treat in audiobook.
To the outside world, they look like American royalty, giving to charities, feeding the homeless, and rebuilding the city. But behind closed doors is a constant battle for dominance between two bosses, cultures, and hearts. Ruthless People is a romantic crime fiction set in modern day Chicago and follows the life and marriage of Melody Giovanni and Liam Callahan - rivals by blood and leaders through fear. Their marriage was arranged by their fathers in hopes to end years of bloodshed between the Irish and the Italians. Liam believes he's getting a simple-minded wife, one he can control, one who bends to his every need...the complete opposite of Melody. She knows exactly what type of man he is and would rather die than give up the power she has spent her life building. The mafia of the past has evolved, and with rival bosses gunning for them, Melody and Liam will have to learn to work as one to take down those who stand in their way.

Warning: This book contains adult language and subject matter including graphic violence and sex that maybe disturbing or triggers for some listeners. This book is not intended for listeners under the age of 18.

COMING HOME #Audiobook now available @Audible

I'm so excited to announce the release of COMING HOME, Porter Brothers book one, in audiobook version. Narrator Kim Park brought the book to life and will continue to work with me in producing the full series.

Rachel Porter, a romance writer, has told her three sons tales of finding their true soul mate since they were just boys. She believes that there is but one match for every person. Now as men, they have yet to discover their soul mates. That is, until they come home....

Ryan Porter needs a change from his busy city lifestyle. After five years of living in New York and establishing his own real estate firm, something is still missing. When a tragedy brings Ryan back to his family's rural home in Maine, he finds that missing piece.

Tyra has heard stories of Ryan since she first met his family years earlier. Now Ryan has come home, and he is more than she dreamed he would be. Neither can fight their attraction for the other. And while Tyra just might be the catalyst for the change Ryan needs, first he must embrace Tyra's secrets.
With family secrets creeping out, a profitable relationship ending, trouble with his company, and the unexpected loss of his father, Ryan's life has been thrown off course. The one thing he's got going for him is the new woman stirring up emotions he's never experienced before. Tyra might be the one who convinces Ryan there's truth to his mother's tales of a soul mate.

#WWoW! Author's Craft: The "ING" Trap #AmEditing

Editing Tips
Tighten Your Copy Yourself

Don't get caught in the ING trap.
Think twice whenever you see an ING in your manuscript. You likely don't need it so get rid of it.

How?
Take out the "were" or "was". Eliminate that pesky ING. Switch to past tense.

Watch what I mean...
"We were beginning to..." = "We began to..."
"He was pressing his palms to..." = "He pressed his palms to..."
"She was touching..." = "She touched..."

Eliminating excessive INGs makes your writing clearer.
