We need your help

We are currently in the finishing phase of marketing Beyond the Friend Zone. Unfortunately we haven't gotten as many pre-orders as we had hoped so I'm begging for a favour. Order it! It's just $2.99 (34 SEK). It's not much for an investment, right?

I would be even happier if you supported our cause on thunderclap, too. We need a few more supporters. Pretty, sweet, dearest readers, with suger and perhaps a cherry on top? I will be for ever grateful. Perhaps I can offer another taste of my novella, more than just the teaser?

To learn from one's mistakes

It's still sad that one has to do it. The other day the one thing that wasn't supposed to happen, happened. Especially since I'd just unloaded a ton of pictures from my phone to the laptop. And it crashed. For some reason it wouldn't recover either. We hadn't made one of those recovery points on the internet or something. The hard drive thought to be broken. I thought, well good, it's partitioned, so we could just fix the one with the system files on it and the one with all the stuff we didn't want to get rid of would be safe. Yeah, that didn't work. We had to format the whole thing. *sobs* Thankfully I save most of my writing related stuff on Dropbox. I've learned that lesson already. I do realise I've saved all my stock photos on the computer and not in dropbox (due to space issues I would assume), I had all my mind maps in theBrain where I've moved all my character stuff and setting and that's gone now, because that was saved to the hard drive.

Now I've sought out my notebooks, where I've written down most of what I've put in the mind mapping program. It's actually quite good, because now I get to know my characters a bit better. I'm trying really hard to fin the silver lining here. Hopefully my muse will wake up too, so I get some writing done. It's way overdue.

I'm feeling a bit down at the moment. I was only restarting the laptop because Word wouldn't work when I was sitting down to write.

Eve 'n' Steven - review

I recieved an ARC for this cute romance read from my collegue Suzie Jay. Eve 'n' Steven releases tomorrow 15th of August.

Eve Taylor decides it’s time to move on from the past. After all, she has a wonderful boyfriend, who came with two great children. She has a fantastic career, and has achieved all her personal goals and dreams.

To cut all ties to the past, she must return to the small rural town where she grew up, to sell her parents farm - a job she’s been putting off for a long time. She has no desire to go there, not when her boyfriend Grayson is spending time with the world’s most gorgeous movie star.

Then, there’s Steven. Everyone says they were destined to be together, but Eve didn't love him that way. She’s been avoiding him and his feelings for her for years. But when Grayson unexpectedly dumps her over the phone, Eve reconsiders. Could Steven really be her destiny? Can he fix her parents crumbling farm, and mend Eve’s broken heart too?

Eve 'n' Steven is the second book in the series All About Eve, following the first Merry Christmas, Eve, which I haven't read yet.

In the beginning I'm actually taken aback by Eve's hostility toward Steven, this straight up decent guy who's been helping her without her even asking, or knowing about it. And I feel more for him than I do for her, especially after reading the blurb. But as the book progresses I kind of get why she is the way she is.

It's a nice read, and explores what happens when you seek out your past, and where it may take you.

Cover Reveal part 3! #beyondthefriendzone

It's that time. The time to reveal the cover of the awesome Writing Wenches Anthology Beyond the Friend Zone. Before me you should have visited Sheri and Anna to get the first two glimpses of this beautiful cover.

And now you're here with me. My novella Hannah's Folly is the third of the nine stories in the anthology. It's about Hannah who's shied away from dating for most of her life.

Love is messy, and she cannot afford to mess up her perfectly organized life. She lives for her lists and work. When her best friend asks her to be the maid of honor and wedding planner, Hannah finds herself working side by side with Jake, her childhood friend. Jake has grown attractive but secretive, yet he gets Hannah in a way that no one else does. Is he worth the risk of letting her life get messy?

So without further ado, I give you part three in our cover reveal! 

It’s an age old story; you start as friends but end up lovers. There’s just something about the trope that we readers love to read, and we writers love to write.

That is why for our new anthology, The Writing Wenches bring you a whole book of short stories that follow the friends to lovers path.

We have sweet stories and spicy stories, and everything in between. Though these are not just any romance shorts, when given our theme, many of us went quirky. We ended up with nine authors guaranteed to make you fall in love with their new characters and their quirky styles.

Beyond the Friend Zone is up for pre-order as of now. Just do it. You know you want to! Or you can wait until September 5th when it's officially published.

Hey, why not participate in our rafflecopter where you can win an awesome gift basket, including a $25 Amazon gift card and books written by some of the Wenches?
