For Kicks is Still Kicking

Remember Logan? And the bathtub? And that phone sex scene?

I can't believe it's been 5 years since Breeze fell for Logan, and then he had to chase her around the country to show her she could be more than her job. It seems like it just happened. 

Things have changed since. When I signed For Kicks I used to slide in a Tarot flashcard for a bookmark. They didn't even have my info on them. Handing them out was all the promo I needed at events. Now, I better show up with something fun or it will never leave the swag table. 

Marketing is a whole new game too. I make promotional graphics nearly every day. I never realized until yesterday that I didn't used to do that. It makes me wonder...if I knew then what I know now, would it have been an even bigger hit?
Last year a friend celebrated the birthdays of all her books, so I'm picking up the baton this year and honoring all my favorites. Logan Chandler makes that list EVERY time. 

Anyone have a favorite bit from For Kicks

The bathtub scene? 
The phone call?
When the chocolate melts?

Asking for a friend...

I saw this article on Mashable ::

'Beer yoga' is a thing, now, and it's going international because, well, 'Beer Yoga' 

So, now I'm wondering...

How It All Started :: 13 First Lines

It's #ThrowbackThursday, so I thought I'd head way back to when I took part in #Thursday13, a meme where you post 13 of anything, with  the first lines of 13 of my books! Wow, that is a crazy long sentence! 

1…. “You’re getting married.” Miranda Rose choked on the words, her throat constricting, stomach twisting, and soul shriveling like a lone grape forgotten on the vine. – Just Married

2…. Five minutes. – Snowed In

3….“You’re late.” – TheBillionaire’s Runaway Fiancée

4….“You need to put some clothes on.” -- For Kicks

5…. “You’re not divorced.” – Anything for a Cowboy

6…. The façade of the coffee shop matched the other businesses in the strip mall – drab, dated, and disappointing. – Private Scandal

7…. “Stolen.” – Drive Me Crazy

8…. “I have half a mind to invite the entire boat of bikini models back to my villa for the night. Show them a true Caribbean good time.” Harmannus Prinsen crossed his arms over his bare chest and glared at his godfather’s approaching sailboat, annoyance pounding through him like rain from a hurricane. – Caribbean Casanova

9…. Scanning the line for the third time, Hannah crossed her legs tighter and tried to concentrate. -- Just One Spark

10…. That's what you get for opening you big mouth, David Strong said to himself as he pulled his baby blue Corvette Stingray in front of Working It Out. – Compromising Positions

11…. I’m going to pretend you came out here looking for me.” – Caribbean Cowboy

12…. Trevor Rock half expected seventies porn stars to come spilling out from behind the filmy red curtains of Auntie O’s Pleasure Parlor. – Satisfaction Guaranteed

13…. Oh, how the mighty had fallen. – Caribbean Crush

Resolutions - How long will they last?

I make New Year's Resolutions every year. I think most people do, whether they share them or not. For the last few months I've been Pinterest level obsessed with challenges that promise to start habits. For some reason, I like the idea of the structure, the completion. Now, I'm going to be honest. My resolutions last approximately 36-hours. Some will make it four days. But this time I bought a planner. Now if I can just remember to use it.

A Social Media 12-month challenge I'm taking on is to bring my online presence up-to-date. Newsletter, Website, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Blog, Goodreads, Instagram, G+, blog tours - I might even get brave and try LinkedIn or Snapchat! And then a end of the year wrap-up with results of what worked, and what was a waste of time. 

There are tons of great 30-day, 21-day, & 7-day challenges out there. I have a bunch I'd love to try. I think I'll start with a self-care one, because it starts with a long bath.

 All of this for a stronger, happier, more successful year. I was so ready to go...and now I'm looking at hernia surgery. My body is in constant need of attention. Maybe a month of self-care (and surgery) can finally give it what it needs!

As for my social media challenge, I'm starting with my website. Because it needs updating (with the rest of the Invested In Love & Weston Ridge), plus it gives a fresh look to everything. Wish me luck!

What are you working on this year?
