Someone emailed me some typo locations yesterday from Second Chance Romance. I cringed as I fixed them. I am so unhapy with it. I have grown so much since I wrote that book. It needs a total overhaul, but i don’t have the time or energy.
I had a long conversation with my husband about it. I wanted to delete Summer Fling, it’s my weakest book.
I’ve read author comments where they say they wish their first book would disappear or it was right to be rejected. I get that. I just don’t know what to do. I stand by the story, just not how it was told.
On the other hand:
Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.”
— Marilyn Monroe (Marilyn: Her Life in Her Own Words)
Making mistakes means I’m doing what people are scared of. And so what if I don’t become rich, most authors do not. The only place I can go is up. I have to go write I had a terrific historical erotic idea. There are not enough of those.

With the recent release of Complications Over Coffee, I thought I’d give a chance for a free book.
If you review Second Chance Romance or Summer Fling on Amazon or Smashwords (links are Smashwords), I will send you a Smashwords coupon with a 100% of for Complications Over Coffee.The reviews have to be meaningful, not “good book, you should read it” and do not have to be positive, that would be wrong to ask for. If you hated it, say why. If you loved it, tell everyone.
Leave a comment with your email and the link or email me at asrai.rdATgmail.com (change AT to @) and I will try to send out the coupons within 48 hours. Offer is good until March 20, 2011.

Corey has gone live.(Click those words if you are as excited as me, it’ll take you to the buy page on Smashwords).
It feels a bit anti-climactic for me, after having spent several months with him. I’m a little sad to let him go, I loved writing this book. Twice. I wrote his story, started editing, and then had a better idea.
You can grab the book on Smashwords. Amazon takes a few days but I’ll post the link when it comes.
The short description:
Nicole received the news seven months ago: men are cheating scum. Corey has lived apart from others until he met Mandy Green, who has taken his confession for a family to heart. While Nicole struggles to finalize her divorce, find a job. Corey struggles with a hold on bachelor hood and his temper. Will Nicole and Corey keep their lives untangled? Or will they let their lives get complicated?
The long one is on Smashwords and Amazon.
I hope you all love Corey as much as I do.
Stay tuned I have ways for you to obtain a free copy (limited promotion probably the first weeks of March, 2011). 🙂 Or a free copy of a short story of after Complications.
