Only A Few Days Left

Didi Oviatt

Every time I mark a book down for sale there’s a part of me that feels a little drug dealerish. Especially since the book I have on sale now is an adult book. Like I’m being naughty selling naughty things. Part of me wants to stand in a dark alley, like a nerdy 120 lb blonde girl hangin’ with the pimps, ready to pedal my raunchy product. I’d peek around the corner and watch for people in their early twenties to mid forties to stroll by, so I can creep half of my face around the edge of a building to get their attention. I’d say,

“Pssst… Hey you?”  Then I’d look over my shoulder to make sure no one is watching before I gave them a nod to my direction. “Comher’ I think I got somethin’ you might like.”

I can see it now. They’d be hesitant, because it’s…

Halloween Reading, Flash Sale! #excerpt #99cents

Aggravated Momentum #$0.99 #Sale

Didi Oviatt

Wow, what a week it’s been!  I’ve put so much time into marketing my new release Search For Maylee that I’ve completely neglected my previous books, which is absolutely silly right now because I write thrillers, and its the month of HALLOWEEN!!!

SO, in light of my neglectful selfishness in terms of the slasher book I published last year, I’ve marked it down to $.99!! It’s bloody, gory, intense, psychologically twisted, and just straight up disgusting… Perfect for the season, I can’t believe it’s taken me halfway into the month to mark the price down for Halloween.  Talk about being distracted! lol

EXCERPT:

Standing next to Kam, peering across the street and into their home, I can clearly see her mutilated body.  Their front doors are French, and opened wide, allowing a perfect view into their once tidy entryway.  The always bleached white floors and walls are completely covered in…

Interview:

I want to thank you for doing this interview with me. I know time is a precise commodity. So, I’ll get right to it. What’s your favorite genre to read?

All of them!  I can’t pin down just one, as I’m one of those weirdos that is likely to lose one’s mind without variety. Although I do think I end up reading the most in equal measures of Romance and Thrillers.

Romance of almost all types are my personal favorite. Do you venture into other genres other than your preferred?

My reading ventures are like a consistent loop, from one genre to another, then back, I cover everything.

I’m with you. I’ll try about any genre if the book sounds interesting. What are you reading now?

Last night I finished up the 3rd book in L. J. Shen’s Sinners of Saint series, Ruckus! It’s an excellent series, every single book. I bawled my eyes out last night! https://didioviatt.wordpress.com/2017/08/11/review-ruckus-by-l-j-shen-5-stars/

Sounds like a great read.

Tonight I’ll be cracking open Havana Heat, by Kim Knight.

https://www.amazon.com/Havana-Heat-Romance-Paradise-Location-ebook/dp/B071H4HSZ7/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1503436854&sr=8-1&keywords=havana+heat+kim+knight

I have this on my to be read list. I can’t wait to read it. Do you have a favorite beverage to read with?

If I’m squeezing in a morning chapter, then I’d have to clearly say coffee. If I’m evening reading (which is usually the case) I’d have to go with a tall glass of Red moscato.

I’m team coffee too, but I sneak in a cappuccino occasionally (that’s our secret). White Moscato is a must for evening reading for me but I’m the opposite I don’t get much time to read at night. Tell us are you self-published or traditional?

I’m proud to be on team Indi! 🙂

You’re an inspiration to new Indie writers like myself. You’re so hard working and fun to chat with. You career lights a fire under me to keep at the dream. How long have you been a writer?

I wrote my very first story in fifth grade, and it actually won a regional non-fiction short story competition. BUT, I didn’t actually consider myself to ‘be a writer’ by profession until last year when I published Aggravated Momentum. For me and my career, that book was a game changer.

I’m glad that you’re reaching the success level that makes you feel great about writing. Getting there takes time and dedication. You’ve put in a good foundation with your other works. Speaking of, How long did it take you to write your first book?

One full year for my first novel.

Wow! I’m still working on my first novel. I had it finished then decided it needed more plot. I started it in 2015. It took me over a year just to finish the first rough draft. It’s my only paranormal finished story presently with a heavy inset of romance. What’s your favorite genre to write?

So far my favorite is any kind of psychological suspense. Putting myself in the head of psychologically twisted characters is a challenge, and it reminds me of my full potential.

 I don’t know if I have what it takes to write that but I’m sure it would be fun to try. Any advice for me or other new authors?

Be patient, and take your time! Don’t get in a hurry because you are excited. You want your work to be perfect always!

Sound advice. Can you share a bit about where do you get the most writing done?

I usually have two little ones running around me. My son just turned five and my daughter is nearly three. I find it easiest to leave my manuscript pulled up and my laptop sitting on the kitchen table. I rarely use my office. My writing is mostly done in twenty minute sessions throughout the day, and my kitchen is a central point of my house lol.

Both of my kids are in school now but I still find keeping my laptop close at all times a useful approach to writing for me too. On to my favorite part, tell you about your latest project.

My latest and greatest is titled Search For Maylee. It’s possibly my favorite of all my works so far. (Granted, I say that for each one as I’m working on them. but who doesn’t right?) Autumn my Main Character is an amazing woman who hasn’t given up faith on finding her missing niece. She puts her best self forward and takes action when everyone else seems to have forgotten about her Maylee.

Search For Maylee is available here: https://www.amazon.com/Search-Maylee-Didi-Oviatt-ebook/dp/B074TM3JVB/ref=la_B00HVJJTLE_1_8?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1503438745&sr=1-8

EXCERPT

Nervously, Autumn hurried to the door. Before opening it, she took a quick heart throbbing look out the peep hole. There he was, the man she had spent her evenings swooning over while listening to the steady hum of his voice over the phone. A man that she once detested, and now ached for. There were so many things she wished could be different about this moment. She would have prepared herself, dressed nice and fixed her hair – probably up and swept from her face. She would have picked something with a low neckline to wear, lathered her skin with her silkiest lotions, and even taken the time to shave. Everything…

Rather than the romantic reunion Autumn had been anticipating, she was being forced to see The Search for Mayleehim in dreaded conditions of her own, and clearly of his too. It was going to take everything she had to shoo him out of her apartment. She had every intention on telling him all about Josie, but not until she had the time to speak with her first. Josie needed to warm up to Autumn, and rest. That wouldn’t be a possibility if she was thrown to the wolves before even being able to catch her breath. Autumn had to keep Josie a secret, at least for tonight.

Chance stood outside the door waiting impatiently. It’d been a long trip, he’d caught the first flight possible after hearing news of another sighting of Maylee. Right there in Denver nonetheless. It was time to be completely honest with Autumn, and he had to do it in person. Anxiously, he held his breath as her metal door creaked open. All he could do was come clean about his lies and pray for her forgiveness.

Their eyes locked and for one brief moment they were the only two people in the world. Josie, Craig, Jeremy, and even Maylee faded into mere background. The sharp gray shards of color in his eyes pierced through her, and she drank in their naked vulnerability. There was a sense of surrender in the upward pull of his brows. It was a look she was yet to see plastered on his handsome face, a look that melted her from the inside out.

As she welcomed him in, the sexy familiar scent of him threatened to consume her. It smelled like spruce bark and ocean mixed into a fresh rustic blend, and it followed him into her apartment, her heart, her future. They had opened up to each other in a way that there was no turning back from. Even if it had only been by phone. No matter what he had to say, there was sure to be a way around it. Autumn was confident of that.

*Review: The Suspenseful Collection Volume 1 by Kim Knight and Didi Oviatt*

Touch My Spine Book Reviews

The Suspenseful Collection was made of eight short stories. The two authors who created this suspenseful book are fellow bloggers and do amazing collaborations together! What’s even more awesome is these two ladies created these suspenseful short stories without any disscusion and/or preplanning, one author starts the story and the other author finishes! I loved this concept and loved how they created these page turners on the opposite sides of the Atlantic Ocean. This book has a story for whatever genre you are craving. The Suspenseful Collection brings you variety and page turning suspense!

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars! With this book I couldn’t even tell there were two different authors writing each story. The erotica in this story had me like”Lawsy me.. Yummy” I liked that it was more on the kinky side and enjoyed the girl on girl action. These stories took me on…

*Review: Time Wasters, Book 1, Super Short Preludes by Didi Oviatt*

Touch My Spine Book Reviews

Hello lovelies! I got this book on my kindle because I’ve read two books recently of Didi Oviatt‘s and fell in love with her writing. I also love novellas and short stories from time to time. I love the thrill of hitting it and quitting it!😉 I’m glad I downloaded more of Didi’s work!

This book is compiled of three short stories: Love or Low Places, Sabatoge by Hook & Dog and Trampling Beast. These short stories are based off real life events and are made for when your looking for something to fit in to fulfill some time and read a good little story.

I give Didi 5 out of 5 stars for these stories. I really devoured these short stories and felt like I could connect with the characters even for the short time we spent together. I’ve had similar experiences and fears as the characters so…
