Free Read: Cat Got Your Tongue?

My romantic suspense novel, Cat Got Your Tongue?, is available on Amazon for FREE this week so if you're keen on a sexy read involving cat burglars, bodyguards, art heists and hot romance, head on over to Amazon and snag your copy!  Happy reading!

Blurb

 A billionaire’s life and art collection are at risk. Who better to help than the daughter of a cat burglar?

 When art collector Cole Anderson is targeted for his priceless Renoir, he reluctantly employs a bodyguard to upgrade his personal security. Imagine his surprise when she arrives—professional, capable, and sporting a ponytail and a gorgeous smile. Alex Foxley is all woman—sexy, feisty, and intimately familiar with the shady workings of the art underworld thanks to her mother’s connections.

 While battling an explosive attraction for each other and thwarting thieves determined to have Cole’s Renoir at any cost, Cole and Alex must work together to protect his life and property—and uncover a secret neither of them knows exists. Will they discover who is behind the deadly conspiracy before it’s too late? Or will passion and lust blind them to what’s right under their noses?

How Nanowrimo inspired me to write The Keepers


November month is Nanowrimo month, an international event where writers support one another as they attempt to write a novel of 50 000 words in one month.
About a year ago, I joined ROSA, our online writing group in South Africa.  They were already on their second week of Nanowrimo and I was warned that the daily emails between members would be a lot.  I wasn’t perturbed at all as up until then I’d been a reclusive writer so it was refreshing to have their support and company.  My newbie author self was completely new to the Nano concept but the daily encouragement and word count swap snagged my attention immediately.
I'm over at the Harper Impulse blog with my story of how Nanowrimo and the support of my author friends inspired me to finish my first book in The Keepers series!

Why Do We Write?

I’ve had my nose buried in books since I was old enough to turn the pages.  Words are my passion and my love for reading eventually developed into a love for writing. 

Now that I’m a published author and discovered what being an author actually involves, my relationship with books has changed.  When I see a book – regardless of whether it captures me or not – I treat it with new found respect because I know what it took to write it.

Although it's a wonderful and exciting experience, the writing process is a tricky one that often sparks the question:  Why write?

Stop by the ROSA blog to read my thoughts on this!


 
Thanks for reading!
