New Release and Black Friday through Cyber Monday Sale

 

New Release…kinda….

If you never had the chance to read Mr. Virile and the Girl Next Door when it came out in 2013–I have good news. It’s been re-published as a new Silver Pines book–with a bonus epilogue!
(And keep scrolling for a great sale)

Take on Me is one of my favorites–Dane the hero falls SO HARD for Holly. He’s adorably unprepared for love. I hope you give this one a try. (Apple and Nook might have eaten too much turkey yesterday. The links are taking longer to go live for some reason.)

Take On Me

Online dating columnist Dane Martin (www.virile.com) has no plans to give up his reign as bachelor extraordinaire. He has a reputation to uphold, especially with the upcoming release of his book Coming on Strong.

Holly Winters, everyone’s favorite girl next door thanks to her blog of the same name, gives dating advice to women struggling to find commitment among the Virile sycophants. Dane is exactly the kind of guy she cautions her readers away from.

When a publicity stunt goes awry and the opposites must pretend to be dating, all bets are off. Has the Girl Next Door tamed the most Virile man alive, or is she just another notch on the bedpost?

Originally published in 2013 as Mr. Virile and the Girl Next Door. Now with BONUS EPILOGUE!

His Counterfeit Campfire Bride

Forget Netflix and chill…campfire and thrill. The second book set in the Camp Firefly Falls world with stories so hot, you can roast marshmallows on your ereader.

Meet MiguelCFF-Cover-CampfireBride Castillo and Seraphina Worth. Two advertising office enemies sent to a corporate retreat at a sleepaway summer camp to work out their differences. With strict orders to come back with whatever trophies and ribbons are awarded for best team or come back unemployed, they are stunned to find out their boss sent them to the wrong camp session. Instead of corporate team building, they are signed up for Rediscover Your Marital Intimacy week.

She thinks he’s unpredictable, unreliable, and unstable. He thinks she’s stuffy, stilted, and square. They can barely work together and now they have to pretend to be married for a week at summer camp—sharing a cabin with one bed, doing tantric yoga, and thwarting the advances of a couple interested in a wife swap.

Trouble is, the one thing they both excel at is marketing. And the more they sell themselves as the perfect married couple, the harder it to remember it’s an ad campaign and not a love match.

Submission Call: Camp Firefly Falls 2017

CAMP-FF-LOGO-COLOUR-GIFAre you a contemporary romance author? Are you interested in writing a category length novel that takes place at the shared world of Camp Firefly Falls during the summer of 2017?

About:

Camp Firefly Falls, is a fictional sleepaway camp for grownups, set in the Berkshires.
Are you thinking of Dirty Dancing? Yeah. So were we. And Indian Summer. All those fantasies we had about making out on a dock, sneaking into the woods late at night, and making fast friends and slow, sweet crushes?

This year’s camp: http://campfireflyfalls.com/

Nitty Gritty: Each author self publishes own book and is responsible for editing (which we stress as important). There is no payment or advance to the authors, they are paid via the vendors they upload to according to sales. There may be incidental costs to chip in on but will be agreed to by all authors: cover art, web hosting, promo.

All authors co-work on a camp bible so we can keep things straight. You are free to use campers or staff in your book. Covers are branded as a group, author responsible for cost of their own. Each camp session can have a different theme limited only by your imagination.

Diverse characters more than welcome!

How to submit:

Please email Gwen @ gwenhayes.com with a proposed blurb of 125-200 words that includes your main trope(s), characters, premise, and camp session theme. It can and probably will change when you are done writing your book–we just want to know you have an idea.

If you are unpublished, we are still interested but please also attach a sample 50 pages of a manuscript you have finished so we have an idea of your writing voice. We also ask that you have a social media platform.

End date for submissions: July 31, 2016

 

Are you ready to go back to summer camp? For grownups?

All those fantasies we had about making out on a dock, sneaking into the woods late at night, and making fast friends and slow, sweet crushes? We’ve been writing about all that and more, and we can’t wait to share our stories with you.

But this isn’t a flashback to our youth (at least not entirely). We’ve got hot, sexy, modern, adult stories, intersecting with some of your favourite romance series, from award-winning and bestselling authors Farrah Rochon, Gwen Hayes, Jamie Wesley, Lily Danes, Violet Vaughn and Zoe York.
