From me to you

You see me rollin’, ya hatin’ LOL.

I’m on the move again. Yes, I’m tired. But I’m in Iowa, Cedar Falls. Romance Rendezvous Book Bash. It’s free so head on over! 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. Meet and greet with the authors. Come chat with me! If you read this and head on over, tell me! I’ll email you a free .99 cent ebook. One of mine so don’t go crazy, lol.

Look at all of us! We’d love to meet you.

Now, You all know Finding Faith came out in May (finally, am I right?) I just submitted a 13K word story for an anthology. All proceeds are being donated to a homeless shelter in IN that is for veterans. Tentatively it is being called Destiny Whispers.

Here’s the blurb from my contribution, Broken Prince Charming:

I lost my way. Discharged, broken, I sought comfort from a bottle. A lot of bottles. I wore a mantle of guilt that I had survived, while most of my buddies died. My life spirals downward. Rock bottom is ugly. I realize I need help and reach out for it. Hidden among the homeless and despair is a bright light, with milk chocolate skin, bright blue eyes and a smile that cheers my soul.

Grace. She smiles and carriers a beacon of hope within her. Despite circumstances that would bring anyone else down, she forges her own path. A path different from her mother’s. Determined to support herself and leave the shelter behind, she has a plan. Nothing and no one will stop her.

She deserves a fresh start, and I’ll help her get it. Even if it means I’m left behind.

Broken Prince Charming is a sweet romance. I know. I’m not sure how that happened, but it did. My beta readers said they wished it was longer, lol. But I was limited on word count to be part of the anthology. And I wanted to contribute. You all know the military and veterans are near and dear to my heart.

On another note, I’m doing a story for another anthology. Area 51. LOL. I had to! I don’t even have a name for it yet, but I’m working on it. I’ll have it done by Aug 31 so it can go to edits. I’ve just been fighting a migraine the last week. I’m on day 7 as I write this. Felt great one day and ended up feeling like my brain was trying to pound its way out of my skull. Lovely, eh? I even already have the cover. Not the name, not the title, lol. But it involves Area 51, tornadoes and a horny alien. Yeah.

I’m having fun, lol.

So preorder it! You know you want to! .99 cents for now!

All proceeds will be going to assist Veterans from the Area 51 anthology! So that is more awesomeness! 

Submissive Lies ~ Release Blitz

 

 

Title: Submissive Lies
Author: Shane Starrett
Genre: Erotic Romance with themes of infidelity
Release Date: August 10, 2019
Blurb
Thomas was everything a woman should want. Smart, sweet,
gorgeous… but that first spark I’d felt between us had fizzled. There’s
something wrong with me, something broken. Or… at least I thought it was
broken. Then I met Steve. We went from spark to raging inferno with one flick
of his eyebrow, one dangerous smile, and now all I can think about is the side
of myself I’d tried so hard to lock away. He’s everything Thomas isn’t. He’s
everything I’ve been missing. Fire and passion… and dominance. If I was a
good girl, a vanilla girl, I could have been happy with Thomas. But now that
I’ve met Steve, I know that’s impossible.
My name is Jen. I am a submissive.
I’ve deceived everyone around me about who I am, and I’ve
lied to myself. But this time I won’t.
This time I will choose happiness… even if it
hurts.

Excerpt
“Okay. Jen.” Thomas’ shoulders relaxed in another small
release of tension as he gave a slight chuckle. “just for future reference,
you might want to think of another way of starting a conversation right
after we’ve had sex other than ‘Can we talk?’ followed by ‘Have I ever told you
about my past lovers?’”
“Ugh.” I slumped back a bit, groaning. “This is getting all
twisted around…”
He laughed, then reached down, kissing the top of my head.
“It’s fine. Just tell me what this is about.”
“In my past relationships, I…” I paused, letting out a small
sigh. “Well, there have been certain things about them that were…well, aspects
of them that have included…umm…” I wasn’t sure exactly how to approach this.
This was not a conversation I’d ever thought I was going to need to have with
him and coupled with the fact that the discussion had already gotten off to an
awkward start, I was quickly beginning to lose my resolve to continue. However,
Thomas was patient and didn’t press me.
“Certain,” I picked up where I had stopped. “…certain, uh,
what people would call … kinky things.” I looked up at him, hopeful, expectant,
and saw his expression change from mild uncertainty to one of bemusement.
“Kinky things?”
“Yeah, you know, kinky…sexual things.”
“Okay.” Thomas frowned, his brows knitting together. He was
deep in lawyer mode, and I could almost see his brain attacking this. “Are we
talking about things like the toys in your drawer?” He made a slight motion
towards the nightstand on my side of the bed.
“Well,” I pursed my lips together, taking a deep breath,
trying not to let my frustration show. “Those could be considered part of it, I
suppose, but what I’m referring to are things that would be a little
more…pronounced than that.”
Author Bio
Shane Starrett has spent twenty-five years writing steamy,
erotic technical documents (okay, the erotic part is probably a bit of a
stretch) for major companies in the live events industry. His first novel, Submissive
Lies
, was long in coming, but with guidance from his long-time beta reader
of 30 years (Ms. Starrett), it is now complete and available. When he isn’t
writing, which isn’t often, he can be found hiking trails up and down the
Sierra Nevada’s, and the coastal range in Southern California.

When Dallas Granger left his family’s Last Stand, Texas, ranch, he hadn’t planned on returning.

International Bestselling Author Michelle Beattie first found her love of romance in romantic comedies such as Romancing the Stone and Valley Girl (yes, she realizes that dates her). It wasn’t until after high school when she worked for a car rental company and had too much time on her hands that she started reading romances. Historicals were her go-to and she raided many bookstores looking for historical western romances.
Eventually she started thinking “what if” and “I’d have done that differently” and quietly started writing her own. More than a dozen books later, Michelle has published in both digital and print platforms and her works have been translated in more than 4 languages.
Michelle is a mother of two very strong, independent daughters. She is a certified member of the Master Bowler’s of Alberta and loves coaching and passing on her love for 5 pin bowling. Besides bowling herself in a weekly league, she also likes to golf in the summer, play games, and read.
Michelle lives in a solar-powered house in Central Alberta with her husband of almost 25 years, youngest daughter, and the cutest dog ever.
