Okay, so the YouTube clip I mentioned in yesterday’s post climbed to over 1200 views – so cool to share my kitty video and Wolf Kier’s music.
So today I could resist clipping another one of my favorite Wolf Kier songs (“Take A Chance On This”) paired with my novel “Lucky’s Last Chance.” Perfect, right?
Hope you enjoy the clip. And I wouldn’t mind if you checked out my book, too. Btw, this book was originally published as “The Tom Jones Club,” but when I got the rights back, I changed the title to Lucky’s Last Chance.
You can hear the entire song here. Doesn’t that voice inspire a leading man for your next romance novel? I know it does for me. 🙂
As some of you know, during FAWM (February Album Writing Month), I did some audio excerpts for some of my novels/short stories. And I asked people if the then titled “Deja Vu at the Blue Diamond (Saloon)” should be retitled “French Martini” and the response was overwhelmingly yes.
Unfortunately, Amazon doesn’t allow retitling of books anymore so I had to create a new book called “French Martini” and unpublish “Deja vu.”
So, here it is, the brand-new French Martini Romantic Suspense.
Nikki Durrance escaped the worst nightmare of her life when she fled Las Vegas for San Francisco, leaving her husband behind at the Blue Diamond Saloon to build a new life. So when the perfect Dr. Mike Fischer proposes, she accepts. But when her new Mr. Right begins to transform into a guy just like her ex-husband, she begins to question everything, including her sanity.
Nikki longs to trust Mike, but with an overwhelming feeling of déjà vu, Nikki’s fear propels her into discoveries of betrayals and underworld connections that will send her running for her life again.
Maybe it’s spring fever or just my longing to re-create my life in Tampa Bay when we moved to Florida the first time around, but I’m kinda playing hooky this week, laying out by the pool, Tiki Bar time, and Disney World! Counting down to our next cruise! It certainly helps with any West Coast homesickness.
Okay, so I’m hanging out by the pool today and it hits me how much I love doing that. How much I love the beach, pools, cruise ships and how that is always my first choice for a vacation. No wonder so many of my books take place on a cruise ship, or Las Vegas, or a beach.
So, I had to make another one of those audios with music and spoken word excerpt like I’ve been doing all through February. This time I decided to hang out with Cyn, Sandy, and Millie of Real Women Wear Red.
Yeah, this book has been around for a while. It was my first published book and the one that got me an agent. I still love it!
After officially completing FAWM (14 songs in 28 days), I had a blast creating DJKat’s Lounge Show by combining 3 book excerpts with music as a bit of a FAWM bonus. I’m thinking of doing a whole book this way. What do you think?
