Fake it till you make it.
That’s Lexi Hall, the wild socialite’s motto for how to live life.
Single and allergic to commitment, Lexi is having the time of her life.  Or is she? With a new promotion at the art gallery, and her colorful lifestyle as bright as ever, she swears she has no interest in slowing down. When Lexi receives a phone call that can change her career, she pounces on the opportunity. But what this outgoing diva doesn’t plan for is her new client, the closed off, secluded artist, Hunter James. Fighting to draw the line between work and pleasure, it’s up to Lexi to figure out how to balance her fake life for something real.
Hunter James is an artist without a muse. Lacking the beauty in his life that he craves, his art is beginning to suffer.  Unfortunately for the mysterious artist, a past mistake also tarnishes his trust in women. Forced to take a meeting with an art gallery dealer, he accepts knowing he’ll turn her down. He turns them all down.  But what he doesn’t anticipate is for the seductive bombshell to turn his world upside down.  As his body and mind come alive, he vows to stop at nothing to have her on his canvas and in his bed.
As Lexi’s life begins to brighten with the promise of something beautiful, can she stop faking it and find a reason to make it real? Or will Hunter’s past replace their light with darkness?

The Angel Killer releases today!

I loved "The Watcher" and cannot wait to read this. If you haven't read "The Watcher" by Lisa Voisin yet, grab a copy NOW! And then, don't forget to read this. :)



Blurb:

Now that she’s found him again, all Mia Crawford wants is some downtime with her fallen angel boyfriend, Michael. But the call of duty keeps him away—from school and from her—with more demons to smite than ever.
When Michael is mortally wounded by a cursed sword, Mia must perform an ancient blood ritual to save him. But the spell exacts a price. Haunted by visions of war, torture, and despair, Mia discovers the world is in more danger than she ever imagined. Behind the scenes, an evil adversary pulls all the strings.

After redemption, there’s Hell to pay.







Excerpt:

Michael leaned against the building’s stucco wall and rested his hands on my hips. Light from the store cast a warm gleam in his crystal blue eyes. He leaned in, and the draw to be close to him was a gravitational force. “Hello,” he said.

“Hello.” I had to get a grip. It’d been so long since we’d talked, I tried to focus on all the things I wanted to tell him. “We went to see Fatima.” His fingers caressed the sides of my waist, sending happy tingles through me. “You know, in her store…” To my own ears, my voice sounded raspy. I trembled.

“Cold?” He drew me closer, his mouth crooking into a grin.

Lost in him, I forgot all about Fatima. “You know damn well that’s not it.” I twined my arms around his back and touched the spot between his shoulder blades where his wings connected. Its warmth thawed my fingers.

He leaned in and brushed his lips along my jaw line. “Thought that was just me,” he whispered, and his breath tickled my neck. “I’ve wanted to do this for three days.”

Our lips met, and I melted into him, not caring that we were on the sidewalk, outside a deli with families shopping inside. Nor did I care that, being an angel, he had to follow very strict rules about contact with humans—especially contact of the relationship variety. Angels had the ability to enthrall humans with their touch, something Michael had to constantly keep in check. But I didn’t have to be enthralled to want to kiss him. That was my own doing. All that mattered right now was that he was here. With me.

He pulled me closer and the buzz of his energy filled me heart and soul, blocking out the rest of the world. My hands sought warmth under his leather jacket and found bare skin. I could feel the shiver from my touch surge through him. His mouth pressing more firmly against mine, he brushed a hand along my cheek and tangled it in my hair.

A dreamlike blur of light and color filled my thoughts. But then the image shifted to blood. His.

Incentive Marketing: Benefit From Rewarding Relationships

A lot has been said about loyalty rewards these days. Incentive marketing or in simpler terms, loyalty rewards seem to have struck a chord with both marketers and consumers alike. 

Today, I guest post at "The Good Villain" about this and enjoyed quite a bit researching and writing about it. Want to read more? Here's the link! 

Incentive Marketing: benefit from rewarding relationships


I would also be blogging more on TGV than here but I would always put up a link here to let you all know about my activities up there. It just makes sense for me to group all my publishing articles at TGV and use this forum to share more of personal experiences. Hope you are ok with it. :)

I hope you enjoy the article as much as I enjoyed writing it. Please feel free to leave your thoughts to help each other out!

Introducing "The Good Villain" to the world!

As late as this post might be, I am here with some exciting news!

After toiling and progressing with my first company, Inkspell Publishing, an independent publishing company (have I told you how proud I am of everything we have achieved in just 1 year?), I am ready to launch my dream content project - www.thegoodvillain.com - Enabling authors to succeed!



Over the last year, I realized the biggest struggle of a writer is not the writing itself but everything surrounding it. A writer is a writer because she writes. But what about the complex, ever changing publishing landscape? The fact that the authors have to swim through the myriad of information to reach the point of actual publishing is painful. As if that was not enough, mix in it a pinch of temptation called "Self-Publishing" and you have the perfect brew of author insanity. Thankfully, we have resources that help us navigate through this.

Then how is The Good Villain different? 
Simple. It is not. What it instead is is a repository of quick information by experienced industry professionals that can show the way with crisp instructions and solutions that actually works. Every article in there is a personal experience of the author and the lessons through those are the ones that will help our readers to succeed in their publishing journey.

My favorite part of the website are the marketing tips. How do we succeed when there are thousands of writers vying for the same reader's attention? There are successes and some awesome tips are being shared on the website who actually implemented them AND succeeded!

So, friends, wish me good luck with this new venture and hoping that this effort will indeed, help authors succeed.

If you wish to contribute to this site, let me know through an email or in the comments box and I will get in touch with you. I am currently accepting proposals!


Thanks all and see you soon!

Book Excerpt: Hollywood Holiday by Sasha Summers

Do you have one of those days when nothing seems right and all you want to do is just curl up with a book that will make you forget your woes and give back nothing but sweet love? Yeah, I have those too and when I do have them, there are very few books I turn to. One of them and of late, quite often, are books by Sasha Summers. I feel very proud that Inkspell Publishing chose to publish her. I enjoy her romance books like no other. She makes me want to dream and I think thats the hallmark of a good author.

So, Inkspell Publishing has contracted her for her Red Carpet Series and I am so pleased to share a book excerpt from her the book 2, appropriately named "Hollywood Holiday". Its a Christmas treat that no romance fiction lover should miss! :)


“My name’s Gunner.” His arm tightened a little. His hand rested on my back, warm and solid. “Gunner Foster.” 
“Gunner?” I didn’t look up or open my eyes, but murmured against him, “I’m Jenny.” 
I drew in a deep breath. He smelled as good as he looked. The plane, the small cabin, the dinging sounds weren’t bad—well, not too bad.His heartbeat was strong beneath my ear, but I heard him murmur, “Nice to meet you.”“Is it?” 
I giggled, shaking my head. “You don’t mind some strange woman clawing her way into your lap?” 
“Happens all the time.” 
I looked up then, laughing. I couldn’t help it.He started laughing too, his smile going wide and his dimples peeking out of his sun-bronzed face. His eyes met mine as he said, “Something about the dimples and the haircut, I guess.” 
“It doesn’t hurt.” 
I moved back a little, not enough to make him move his arm, though. Not yet. It…he…felt nice, comforting. “First time home in a while?” 
“Almost four years.” 
“Wow. That’s a long time. No wonder your mom is looking forward to having you home.” I paused. “Talk about a Christmas present they’ll never forget.” 
He shrugged, his hand sliding up my back to rest on my shoulder. “I’ve missed them.” 
I nodded. “Sure.” He was watching me. And I smiled at him a little. Poor guyI wouldn’t want to sit by me. I mean, who would? It wasn’t exactly the way a person wanted to kick off the holidays—strapped into a flying missile next to a lunatic. My eyes traveled over his face, knowing I needed to pull it together, to apologize or something. But he didn’t look upset. He looked…concerned.So he was sweet and hot. And he smelled incredible. This might not be the worst flight of my life.    





"My new favorite author is Sasha Summers.  She's as addictive as chocolate." - Marcia King Gamble, National Best-Selling Author

Blurb:

All she wants for Christmas is for Hollywood to love her again. But once she meets him, her Christmas list changes.

Jen’s only Christmas wish: Hollywood falling back in love with her. Meeting ex-Marine Gunner was a bonus. She likes that he isn’t impressed by celebrities or the movie biz. She likes that he’s funny and sweet … and drop-dead gorgeous. And she loves that he has no idea who her alter-ego is: Jen Fleming, Hollywood bad-girl and paparazzi target number one. Why ruin an amazing affair when he’s leaving after the new year?

But the closer they get, the harder she falls, and the more she wants to tell Gunner everything. Especially once he shares his secret with her.

Her new Christmas wish: Gunner accepts and loves her for who she really is.

About the Author:

Sasha is  part gypsy. Her passions have always been storytelling, Hollywood, history,  and travel. It’s no surprise that her books include a little of each. Her  first play, ‘Greek Gods and Goddesses’ was written for her Girl Scout troupe.  She’s been writing ever since. She loves getting lost in the worlds and  characters she creates; even if she frequently forgets to run the dishwasher  or wash socks when she’s doing so. Luckily, her four brilliant children and  hero-inspiring hubby are super understanding and supportive.

She wasn’t meant for movie stars,  Hollywood, or happy endings. And then she met him.

But when she falls, literally, into the strong arms of Hollywood’s ‘it’ boy Josh Wiley, Claire’s in for some surprises. Her plans for rest and relaxation are  forgotten as one incredible night with Josh becomes two… And her heart begins to want him as much as her body. Will two kids, one bastard ex-husband, and Josh’s juggernaut career mean the end of their affair? Or can Claire find her happy ending after all?
