For Her Pleasure (The Pleasure Series) by Angie Daniels

Love is the last thing on bar owner Mackenzie Boyd’s mind so when she propositions Ryan Young for sex, neither of them expected one night to spark a flaming affair. The only good thing is he doesn’t believe in commitment and has a 14-day rule. However as their time together draws to a close, Mackenzie finds her body and heart yearning for so much more.

The firefighter has been crazy about Mackenzie for years, but she’s his best friend’s cousin and completely off limits.

In fact, every day he’s with her has him wanting more. Can the two learn to trust again for the greatest love of…

The Importance of Research–Part 2, An Article by Author Juliet B. Madison

I often hear from people who want to write a book but don’t know how or where to begin. Or from people who have already written a book that’s ready for publication but don’t know how to get it published. I recently began a new blog series, Writing and Publishing Tips From Authors Around the World, to help writers.

I’m starting today a weekend special on self-publishing, with four simple tips that can help you succeed.

When I self-published my first book, I was confident that I could easily put it forward, based on my professional career as web developer and marketeer.  I expected to sell hundreds of copies, which I now have – but only after a lot of hard work. It wasn’t as easy as I’d hoped, but neither as hard as many seem to think.

Since that fateful October day, when I hit the “publish” button on Amazon and giggled like a schoolgirl for the rest of the day, I have read hundreds of articles, blog posts and comments regarding book writing and promotion. I have also made it a priority to help my fellow Indie authors succeed in their new endeavour, in any way possible.

Thinking back on what I did right and…

The 6 Most Sinister Villain Personalities – Crafting Villains #4

Originally posted on Sacha Black:

6 Sinister Villain Personalities

Some villains are just plain nuts, right? Wrong. On a serious note, whether its done consciously or not, I think there are some illnesses and mental disorders that often sit behind some of the greatest villains. Understanding these disorders and their sometimes comorbid nature allows us to create more authentic villains. I want to tread carefully here, I think it’s important to respect mental health and the sufferers, importantly, I am not suggesting people or characters with mental health issues are villains or antagonists, just that some of the great villains have these disorders.

There are some important lessons we can learn from these illnesses which can help us to being authenticity to our characters. Having an awareness of these disorders can give you insight, genuine reactions, and understanding of what the source of their conflict can be – which gives you more plot and more depth to your characters.

*A woman in a hot air balloon realized she was lost. She reduced altitude and spotted a man below. She descended a bit more and shouted:* *

‘Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago but I don’t know where I am.’

The man below replied, ‘You’re in a hot air balloon hovering approximately 30 feet above the ground.* *You’re between 40 and 41 degrees north latitude and between 59 and 60 degrees west longitude.’

You must be an Engineer,’ said the balloonist.

‘I am,’ replied the man, ‘how did you know?’

Well,’ answered the balloonist, ‘everything you have told me is probably technically correct, but I’ve no idea what to make of your information and the fact is, I’m still lost. Frankly, you’ve not been much help at all. If anything, you’ve delayed my trip by your talk.’

**ALL PROCEEDS FROM THE SALE OF THIS ANTHOLOGY GO TO MAP INTERNATIONAL** “The Best Thing I Never Had” an anthology featuring a story by Julia Mills

best thing  never had

‪#‎aromasauthors‬ ‪#‎juliamills‬

Love.

For some, love is the reason they get up each day and take life by the horns. The knowledge that someone out there is made just for them inspires greatness each day. For others, it is another four-letter word tha tbrings forth bad memories and bouts of sadness. The past chases and plagues them.

Life…
it is a never ending series of learning experiences of the heart and soul. All who love are lucky because they are given an opportunity to learn not only about themselves but also about others through gain and loss. No relationship is perfect and not all last, but they all mean something and are worth it, if even for just one fleeting moment of joy.

Often…
not getting what you want opens your heart to what is waiting for you on the other side of the lessons. Within these pages, twelve brave souls open up their hearts and share their experiences so that others might learn that it is not the end of a relationship that defines you, but what you learn from that end.

Sometimes…
not getting what you want can be the best thing for you.
