Book Blitz -- The Long Game

I head the pleasure of reading The Long Game this summer, and it grabbed me right from page one! The characters and setting are still in my head, and I can't wait to read the sequel--J.L. Fynn, you better write fast. :)

The details...

Book Name: The Long Game
Book Genre: NA Contemporary
Book release date: October 7, 2013

Blurb: Smooth talking. Ambitious. Loyal. Twenty-year-old Shay Reilly has proven himself to his Irish-American Gypsy clan on small-scale cons, but now the clan leader has a bigger mission for him: playing the long game.

To rake in the big score he’s after, he needs to con co-ed Spencer into falling in love with him. He knows he should see Spencer as a mere means to an end, but that’s easier said than done when there’s a witty, attractive girl in your arms.

Now the only thing that can keep them apart is the thing that brought them together: Shay’s plans of revenge against someone who wronged his clan and family years before—Spencer’s father

About the author J.L. Fynn: J.L. Fynn is the public face of a private identity. She enjoys making up stories about iniquitous heroes, providing Delphic answers to unasked questions, and obfuscating the truth just for laughs. But then, what’s an author but a professional liar? If you send her an email she might let you in on her little secret—assuming she likes your moxie.

Join in on the buzz!
The Long Game is looking for readers and bloggers for the upcoming book blog tour October 7th – October 20th!

Cover Reveal...The Best Laid Plans

Wow! Today is a crazy exciting day--I've got two amazing things to share!

First up, a bit of sexy for your Friday morning...the cover reveal for THE BEST LAID PLANS (out November 12th from Swoon Romance) by my beautiful Canadian friend, Tamara Mataya.

Gah! Every time I see that cover (and really, I'm only peeking a few dozen times a day), I get, um, excited.

Excited for Tamara, right, that's what I meant.

Ahem! About the book...

            Jayne Griffin isn’t looking for Mr. Right. She’s looking for Mr. RTFN and a toe-curling good time. She’s got the brains, the powerful job as a futures broker, and thanks to a makeover and a thin book of dating advice, the confidence to turn any man’s head.
            Malcolm Black notices his high school crush, Jayne, from the stage of her company’s work party. His adolescent feelings for her died beneath months of abuse at the hands of bullies. Abuse that was Jayne’s fault. Though this scorching hot studio musician is unrecognizable as the band geek he used to be, the hurt still lives inside him, and he hatches a plan: Seduce Jayne into falling in love with him, and then shatter her heart.
            The white-hot chemistry between them is a pleasant surprise. It all goes so smoothly until feelings start to develop... and that invitation to their ten year high school reunion lands in their inboxes.

            Jayne wants the perfect lover. Malcolm wants revenge. But you know what they say about The Best Laid Plans...

Coming November 12th 2013 from Swoon Romance

Let me just mention, I've read this book. "White hot chemistry" is an understatement.

About Tamara...

Tamara Mataya is currently a librarian; she lurked there for so long recommending books to patrons and shushing people, that she suspects they only hired her so it would be less creepy. Now she’s armed with a name tag, and a thin veneer of credibility. She’s also a musician with synaesthesia – which isn't an issue until someone plays a wrong note, which makes her want to squirm inside out. It makes for a good live show.

New Adult...More than just Contemporary

I love me some contemporary romance, especially in the New Adult category. It was books like Easy, Damaged, and Fallen Too Far that hooked me on New Adult and inspired me to reach out to those readers when publishing Speak Easy. 

Because even though it's set in 1923, it's still at heart a story about a 20-year-old "new adult" finding her way, craving independence and excitement, making mistakes, and enjoying sexual freedom. 

A lot. ;)

I honestly didn't know how tough it would be to get NA fans to try something new, and I get giddy when people write me saying they were reluctant to pick up a non-contemp book but ended up loving it. So when I was approached about adding Speak Easy to a bundle of non-contemp books to help spread the word that NA is expanding, I jumped at the opportunity. 

Curious? Looking to branch out into other areas of New Adult but don't want to break the bank? Read on, my dears, and...

Fall for the new New Adult: a campaign to spread the word that New Adult is expanding into new and exciting categories like Historical, Fantasy, Science Fiction, Gothic, and more! 

Follow along to find out why best-selling NA authors & NA bloggers are excited to see New Adult expand outside of contemporary. (Full schedule can be found here.) 

And as an incentive to give the new NA a try, the Fall for New Adult bundle set will be available for a limited time. Set includes 4 great non-contemporary NA novels for only $3.99!

Something for everyone! :)
