Custom Fit by Lexi Miles


Sunni is one of the most sought after style consultants and is totally put off when her boss Zelina calls her into her office, as if Sunni is a newbie cub, and gives her an emergency assignment. Sunni’s protest comes to a halt when she realizes that she just got the assignment of a lifetime: dressing the ultra-sexy singer/actor Striker Clint for the entire holiday season. The only rule, to avoid termination, no romantic involvement with the client. But Striker is not just any client, Sunni has had it bad for him since she laid eyes on him in one of his earlier films. Are some rules made to be broken?

ReBlog – Fantasy Publishers 2016 (No Agent Required!)

I love the stuff she posts.

Last week I shared a list of agents accepting submissions of fantasy novels, but here are a bunch of publishers who accept unagented submissions. This list is mostly the same as my list of science fiction publishers, but there are some differences, and I figured it’s more convenient to have a list just for your genre.

Something New

Here’s another sneak peek of the new cover coming soon. It’s a lot cleaner then my past cover and so is the interior writing of the book.

Are you ready to find out what else I have going on in the book world?


A Hero for Hailey by D.E. Haggerty


I do not need some man to come riding in on a stupid white horse to save me, thank you very much.

When I run into a teensy weensy bit of trouble, who should show up but Aiden – my high school nemesis. Unfortunately, Aiden doesn’t realize he’s my high school nemesis. Nope. He doesn’t even remember who I am. Gee, thanks.

Suddenly Aiden is everywhere, claiming he’ll protect me. Do I look like I need protecting? But when Aiden speaks to me in that deep, sultry savior voice, my knees wobble and I forget my name.

I better get to solving this trouble I’m in, so Aiden will move right on out of my life. Only he says he doesn’t want to move on. He wants to stick by my side forever. Not happening.

But like my pops always says Love will OUT.

A Hero for Hailey is book 1 of the romantic comedy series Love will OUT but can be read as a standalone.

This romantic comedy features a kickass PI with a chip the size of a Green Bay Packer on her shoulder, a sexy detective she wants to hate but really wants to tie to a bed and see what happens, a best friend who defines the word klutzy, and a makeshift family of former Army buddies who think telling dirty jokes is a sign of love.Cover v1.4

Author Spotlight: D.E. Haggerty

D.E. Haggerty is actually just plain old Dena, but she thinks using initials makes her sound sophisticated and maybe even grown up.

She was born and raised in the U.S. but considers herself a Dutchie and not only because it sounds way cooler_MG_0371_2

After a stint in the U.S. Army, she escaped the US to join her husband in Holland. She fled Holland over ten years ago when she couldn’t stand the idea of being a lawyer for one single second more.

Turns out Bed & Breakfast owner in Germany didn’t do it for her either. When the hubby got a job in Istanbul, she jumped ship and decided to give this whole writer thing a go. She’s now back in Holland, which she considers home.


A sample of her work.

ReBlog – The Crucial Importance of “Candy Bar” Scenes in Your Writing


I recently read through a long thread of comments from a random group of authors talking about their writing process during NaNoWrMo (National Novel Writing Month).  Many of them were lamenting about the same problem, how they had to “slog” or struggle through much of their story to reach those delicious candy bar scenes.

What is a so-called candy bar scene?  It’s not a scene that involves a Snickers or a Kit-Kat, if that’s what you’re thinking.  It’s a scene that “tastes” so good to you, the author, that you just can’t wait to reach that part of the story so you get it all written down.  It’s a juicy scene that you have been looking forward to sharing with readers perhaps ever since you had the idea for the book…
