It's Release Day!

Welcome back to Fairfield Corners!

It's release day for Where There's Faith, Fairfield Corners Book 3

A past she can't remember. A love he can't forget.

After hitting rock bottom, Robert Newlin embraced sobriety and tried to live his life quietly and alone at his family’s lake cottage. Blaming himself for the accident that claimed his wife and unborn baby, he spent most of his time alone and grieving until Faith moved into the cottage next door.

Faith McMillan had no memory of her life before that day three years ago. The physical scars had faded but the emotional ones were still fresh and raw. Living rent-free seemed like a great way to finish her second book and would give her the time to figure out her next move. But then she met the reclusive guy next door.

Robbie and Faith – can two broken people who vowed to live their lives alone find happiness together?

Unfazed by the pounding on the door, Robbie rubbed the sandpaper over the wood, enjoying the rhythm of the song and the satiny smoothness of the wood under his hands. Creating the handmade memory boxes out of blocks of wood soothed his soul better than the oblivion he had tried to find at the bottom of a whiskey bottle. The music blasted through his workshop and its open windows, his way of shutting out the world that no longer had her in it. His attention was focused on this special container for his soon-to-be niece or nephew; he still needed to find the right design for the lid. Ragan had cried when he gave her the one for Skylar with the guitar and music notes carved into it.
The rumble of his stomach convinced him it was time to stop for lunch. He grabbed his shirt off the hook by the door, marveling at the seventy-degree day in October in northeast Indiana. According to the forecast on the news earlier that day, the weather would turn more seasonable later that afternoon, bringing in the cold and rain.
The change in temperatures brought thoughts of Thanksgiving. He grimaced at the idea of the holiday in a few short weeks; it would be his first big family holiday since that day back in May when he had hit rock bottom and almost died because of it.
Pulling the door open, he stepped back just as a woman fell towards him. He frowned while grabbing her arms to keep her from collapsing inward, the contact with her skin stirring something he wanted to keep buried. His hands dropped to his sides when he was sure she was steady. “What do you want?” he said with a scowl as he crossed his arms. “Well? I’m waiting.”
“Hi,” she said as she stuck out her hand. “I’m Faith McMillan. I’ll be staying next door for the next few months.”
“I’ve got things to do. Did you come here for a reason?”
She frowned at his brusqueness. “I just wanted to ask you to turn down the music a couple of notches. I’m trying to work, and it’s distracting me.”
“No.” He crowded her out the door and closed it behind him. Striding toward his house, he turned and saw her standing there with her mouth hanging open. “This is private property, I suggest you leave.”
He watched as she stomped back to the Romero’s. Just what he didn’t need, a beautiful distraction. At least, when the weather turned, he wouldn’t be subjected to the sight of her in those shorts with her long, tanned legs that seemed to go on forever. Maybe she would stay indoors where she wouldn’t disturb him.

It's Been A While...

It's been so long since I've posted anything here. Sorry for the media blackout - it's been a hard few months. First - I lost my job. Not for anything bad, I just wasn't the right person for the position. And, I learned that I don't want to be in charge. I've been using the time off to evaluate what I really want to do and I've decided that a part-time job will be enough. I want enough money to be able to do all my author events but not work so much that I don't have time for them or for writing. In other words... I want to give this writing gig a serious try.

I have released two books in the last few months - Loving Jessie's Girl was first published in the Winter Lites Anthology put out by my publisher. You can still get this great collection of stories for $.99 but only for another ten days. After that, the set is gone forever. You can get it here

This fall and winter season, Lavish Publishing is proud to bring together five of our new and established authors along with a few of their friends to present Winter Lites: A Collection of Seasoned Tales.

Inside this boxed set of novellas, eight special journeys await – all clean reads, ranging from love stories to paranormal thrillers. Each is told in the authors' unique voice, all are professionally edited and proofed, and only available in this special bundle for the 2016 holiday season.

Loving Jessie's Girl grew out of an idea that hit me while listening to I Drive Your Truck by Lee Brice. That song resonated with me and I started typing. It turned out completely different than my original story idea.

Until AJ Monroe left Indiana after college he had always lived in his identical twin brother’s shadow. He had made a life for himself in Denver, Colorado, away from Jessie, away from Indiana. But when AJ feared for his brother's safety, he left everything behind to step back into the shadow he thought he had outgrown. Finding his brother was AJ's only concern...until he met Jessie's girl.
Fiercely independent, Rina Abbot hid her true situation from everyone, including her best friend, Jessie. Out of money and unable to care for her rescue dogs she had no choice but to accept the help of the handsome stranger with a familiar face. Afraid to trust him, she tried to ignore the feelings he stirred within her as they searched for his missing brother.

But secrets never stay secrets for long. Finally open about their feelings for each other, Rina’s secrets began to wreak havoc on their lives. Would Rina’s secrets force AJ to give up his dream of loving Jessie’s girl?

You can get it here

I am working on book 2 and hope to have it ready to publish later this year.

And in December I released Last Chance Christmas. If you've read Invisible you will recognize Brent and Jordan. After their rocky start of course it would not be smooth sailing for them to find their forever together. You can get it here

From the outside, Brent Halston and Jordan McKenna had the perfect life: the house, the dog, fulfilling careers, and their love. However, Jordan’s past refused to leave her alone, threatening to destroy all they had built together. Without explanation, Jordan pushed Brent out of her life, leaving him devastated and confused. In an attempt to start over, Brent relocated to Fairfield Corners, bought an extravagant house, and mourned the loss of his Jojo. To keep herself from drowning in her own grief, Jordan gave everything she had to her career as a doctor, running the free clinic on the rough side of town. As the holiday season approached, a frantic phone call from Jordan’s brother pulled Brent back into Jordan’s life, giving them the opportunity to reconnect. Battling the past and present, can their love survive secrets and betrayal? Would this be their last chance Christmas?

And for the major news...

Fairfield Corners Book 3 is finally finished! Where There's Faith will release on March 31. It's been a long time coming. It's not up for pre-order yet but you can add it to your Goodreads TBR here. I am so excited for you to read this one. I hope you will love Robbie and Faith as much as I do.

A past she can't remember. A love he can't forget.

As I search for the perfect part-time job to subsidize the writing, I am working on 3 stories. Preacher's Redemption is a stand-alone with a biker and a baby.

I have also started the first book in the Ground Zero ~ Rock Star Love Stories series, tentatively titled Just One Look. If you want a peek at the series I have a prequel novelette, One Night Stand, that you can get for free for signing up for my newsletter. You can get that here.

I Should Be Writing But...

I have two novellas that need to be completed and edited soon but I can't work on them until I make my opinion known about what is happening in our world today.

When did religion become about hate?

With tears in my eyes I watched another horrific story on the news tonight. Fifty dead. Fifty people who are no longer breathing because someone decided they needed to die. Explain to me how a religion that in no way promotes violence has been corrupted by a few extremists to justify their twisted sense of self-worth. They use a religion of peace to spread their message of hate.

Even Christians have twisted their religion to promote hate. Hate for anyone who is not "like" them. Bunch of &$%@ hypocrites! Up until about a year ago I was going to church regularly. I ignored the occasional reference to the "gay" issue, I have a brain and I can decide things for myself. Until the Sunday where the head pastor gave a sermon on how we as a congregation needed to make sure the gay marriage bill in  Indiana did not pass and if we didn't believe the same way to talk to him so he could "educate" us. Nope. Somehow I made it through the rest of the service without walking out or jumping up and screaming that he was full of shit. I have not been back. I still consider myself a christian but organized religion is not for me.

As a rational-thinking person I don't know how people can spew so much hatred of their fellow humans.And it's not just against the LGBT community, they spew hate about other religions, other ethnic groups, and other people who don't believe the same way they do. I prefer to believe in the God I was taught about when I was a child: a God who loves everyone.

When did it become the victim's fault?

For years, I lamented the fact that my husband and I never had children. But now, now I'm glad I don't have children to see what a mess we've made of our world. Rape culture. How in the hell did that happen? I don't care what they were wearing, no means no. And if they are passed out, not giving consent means no. How hard is that to understand?

Could it have something to do with the fact no one takes responsibility for their actions? Everyone gets a trophy, discipline seems to be a thing of the past, and self-entitlement is the norm. I grew up knowing if I did something I knew was wrong I would get punished. No one worried it would damage my sense of self-worth.

Rape is a crime worthy of severe punishment. Sorry, but six months is not adequate punishment for ruining someone's life.

If this post offended you, please feel free to unfollow me. I welcome discussion about world events but hatred will not be tolerated on this blog, my author page, my personal profile, or on any of my other social media accounts.

Thank you for "listening".

Life, Love, and Saying Goodbye

We don't live forever. Life reminded me of that this week with the death of a very dear friend. It wasn't sudden or unexpected - she had been battling PML for years and she had been on hospice care for about a month. She decided it was time and had stopped all meds. I'm sad that she's gone but I'm happy she's no longer in pain. Today, we said our final goodbyes at her funeral.

A Tale of Three Mikes

Our story started when we were in high school (it seems like yesterday but unfortunately it's been a few years ago). There were three of us practically joined at the hip - Melissa, Karen, and me. There were others but we were the core group. We were the three musketeers of the Froot Loops. We were not part of the "in crowd" but we didn't care - we had each other. We had many adventures and both good times and bad. We worried and then celebrated when Melissa had a baby our senior year, three weeks before graduation. Even after graduation we stayed close. We laughed, loved, and suffered heartbreak. It was us against the world.

Somehow, we have always been connected, even down to finding our forever loves. We found them at different times but they are all Mikes. Yep, we three all fell in love and married a Mike. Karen found her's first but she was the last to marry. She dated him in high school - she was a senior and he was a couple of years behind us. That's a big thing when you're in high school. Over 10 years later he looked her up and the rest is history.

Our lives spiraled out of control for a while when Melissa was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. She fought and beat it after having the tumor and one ovary removed and undergoing chemo. And life evened out. 

She moved to a nearby town, meeting her Mike. It wasn't long after that when I met my Mike on a blind date. Against the odds Melissa became pregnant, got married, and had her second daughter. We celebrated again. And then, she had a son, David. We celebrated then we mourned when they lost him to SIDS. She just kept going, living and loving and missing her son. And life evened out again.

Life threw another curve ball Melissa's way. She was diagnosed with PML disease (click here for more info on PML). It took the use of her right arm and her ability to work. She fought and lived with this condition for years, even learning to write with her left hand. This year, the PML finally took it's toll on her body, she just couldn't fight any more. She fought long and hard, finally letting go on what would have been David's 20th birthday - she was able to wish her baby boy happy birthday for the first time ever.

They say God only gives you what you can handle. She was stronger than anyone else I've ever known. She dealt with having a baby at 17, ovarian cancer, her daughter being abused and the resulting trial, losing a baby to SIDS, and finally being diagnosed with PML disease. Just looking at that list, no one should be expected to deal with all that. But she did, and with grace and love. Don't get me wrong, there were good things too. Her daughters are strong, independent women, she met and married a wonderful man, and she's been able to know and love her family, including her grandchildren.

For me, making friends is hard and losing one is devastating. A piece of my heart is gone until the day we meet again. Love you forever Mo.

Gotta Love Those Speed Bumps!

Yesterday was cover reveal day for Invisible. I opened up Facebook and started posting in the cover reveal party. I was excited to show off the pretty new cover, I'd even ordered bookmarks and postcards so I could do some giveaways. I'm happily posting away until I notice a message on my author page.

Do you see the problem?

Guess what - the name of the book was misspelled on the cover. The cover designer missed it. My publisher missed it. And worst of all, I missed it. I had checked the spelling of my name as that's usually misspelled. I was so dazzled by the pretty cover I never noticed the "a" in the title.

I now have a bunch of bookmarks and postcards I can't use and I have to pay out more money for new swag with the corrected cover.

Now, isn't that much better? I learned a couple of valuable lessons yesterday:

  1. Verify everything! Especially before ordering swag.
  2. Don't sweat it - it can be fixed.  

I'm out some money but it's fixed. Lesson learned.

Now, let's turn my speed bump into a #giveaway!

Want to win some swag? Comment with your biggest speed bump and I'll pick a winner or two next weekend from all the comments to win some swag.

On to other fun stuff...

There's still a few days left on the Ragan's Song epic Rafflecopter #Giveaway!

Enter here!

Signing Announcement

I was accepted for another signing next year. June 10 I will be signing at Deliciously Dirty in Denver along with the Queen of Rock Star Romance Jade C. Jamison.

 To say I'm excited is a serious understatement. Jade is one of the first indie authors I connected with when I originally released Saving Cassie back in 2013. I have met so many amazing authors on this journey and I am stoked that I get to meet another one in real life.

You can find info for all the signings I'll be attending on my website here.

Until next time,

Happy reading!

Blog Tour - Stripped by Allie Juliette Mousseau

Title: Stripped
Author: Allie Juliette Mousseau
Genre: Romantic Comedy Standalone
Published: March 29, 2016 
Stone Wright is Foreplay’s hottest act. While entertaining at the popular L.A. strip club known for catering to the feminine wild, the fever-inducing Aussie with the sex-saturated accent and moves to match is preparing for the audition of a lifetime on the sensational hit reality show Then Prove You Can Dance.
When retired principal dancer and ballerina Emilie Cartier stumbles into his dressing room, she’s still reeling from the one wrong spin that altered her entire life and obliterated her dreams.
After a humiliating public, albeit meteoric, orgasm—the kind so desperate to escape, it took over her body without her brain's permission—and a second, more intimate and deliriously deliberate one, Emilie makes a deal with Stone: he helps her get her dancing mojo back and she readies him for his national audition.
But she insists he keeps his wily, wandering hands to himself and his dirty mouth shut. Of course, that’s going to be an extremely hard challenge—one of herculean proportions.
Emilie is not prepared for Stone—the way he spins her mind dizzy, rocks her body into sweet oblivion or dirty dances into her every daydream—and falling in love with him is so definitely not an option.
The closer Stone gets to Emilie, the more he realizes he’d do anything to make her his own. Problem is, he’s a real f*ck-up with relationships. And that means he’s dangerously close to becoming her next major f*ck-up.
What happens when all of the emotional layers—along with the stage props, their dancewear and every last shred of their clothes—are ultimately stripped?

“What's up with these sexy Aussie men anyway? Forget the Canadian, I want an Australian. Lol. This funny, refreshing amazing story gets a much deserved 5 star review.” ~Diane (Amazon Review)
“Light, fun, witty banter, hot sex and my new book boyfriend , Stone, of course.......There wasn't anything not to like, rom-com done to perfection.” ~Stacey (Amazon Review)

“Oh boy, was this book sizzling my fingers from the pages! Just a few words to describe this book... Hot, sensual, sexy, mouth watering and dang good.” ~Cutting Muse Book Blog
Allie Juliette Mousseau is a USA Today Bestselling Author. She can always be found writing, playing in puddles with her children, hiking with her husband, or adventuring somewhere in the world. Her favorite place to write on warm days is outdoors, but when the weather gets too cold, she'll be inside at her desk inspired by the mountain view from her home office in Montana where she lives with her loving husband, children, and golden retriever. She loves to travel and lived for three years in her RV with her family while visiting the national parks and forests of the U.S. and a couple Canadian provinces. She is excited to add all of Canada and Alaska in the near future!
