I have a new release today!
And it’s kind of a funny story…
A friend of mine writes sweet, clean romance and she’s been trying to get lure me into writing one for years. I’m not exaggerating…years. Naturally, I’ve been resisting.
A few months ago she called me and asked if I wanted to be a part of a Christmas Romance series.
I’m not going to lie, after more than one Hallmark Christmas movie a year I get a bit twitchy, but I had a few weeks that I could free up in my schedule, and at the time I wanted an easy project (easier than the 400,000 word space opera trilogy I was planning), so I agreed.
This is what happened.
Notice the author. That’s me. I’m using a pen name for these books.
Get it while it’s hot.
My friend came up with the premise-the quarterback of a (fictional) professional football team is looking for love, and he decides he wants to go find his first love and try to win her back. He and a couple of the other players get into a fight with some reporters and end up in jail for a few hours. While there, the quarterback decides that they’re all pathetic and challenges the other players to find their first love and try to rekindle the relationship. If the person is single, of course. Whomever fails has to tell their boss about the fight.
I’m not going to lie, my football players are pretty awesome. Not perfect-because that makes for a dull story-but guys trying to find the best way through their lives. They are charming. they mess up and then they try to fix it.
There are two other books in the series so far, with three more to come after mine.
If you love those cheesy Hallmark Christmas shows, this series is for you!
