So I thought I'd continue this week's semi-theme of famous sayings. Sayings like: taking a leap of faith, no guts, no glory, or you'll always miss 100% of the shots you don't take (who said that one, Catherine Gayle?).
The majority of us know one or two people who are the embodiment of those statements. Men and women so daring, so confident in their abilities that they don't let naysayers or even gravity get in their way.
Sure I've blogged about confessing my love to Rachel Gibson's face, and
stalking hugging Colin Firth, but those were Extraordinary Circumstances.
So I did it!
|I Made It Myself|
And I'm glad I did. I can't tell you how excited I am. How flippin' nervous I am. But I'm all those things and more. Next month, my debut novel, TWICE TEMPTED, will be available on Amazon and Barnes&Noble!
What happens in Vegas,Born into wealth and power, Christian Romanov is Hollywood’s favorite bad boy with a golden touch…until the day his agent receives pictures of the movie star celebrating his birthday in a not-so-legal way. Now he’s been ordered to find a small-town girl to be seen with in order to improve his partying image. He agrees, but for an entirely different reasons--to protect the reputation of an organization that helps get teen off the street and back into the school. Not only is he the anonymous donor that's been solely supporting the organization since its inception, he's slated to be their newest spokesman.
Doesn't stay in Vegas.Zoe Ambrose is a hopeless romantic masquerading as a realist. But she’s also a successful novelist, trying to fit herself into a staid life when what she craves is the adventure she found one night in the arms of a playboy who never knew her name. When her successful crime series is optioned by a major studio, she travels to Las Vegas to find that the prince of her fantasies and single night of pleasure is the main contender for the male lead. But for four years Zoe has been publicly eviscerating the man who left her stranded that night—he’s the villain in her series! Now the movie star doesn’t even recognize her, and Zoe is determined to protect her heart this time.
When Christian braves the small town of Holland Springs and Zoe’s overprotective family to win the girl of his dreams, he finds that his Hollywood skills might not cut it—and learns a shocking truth he never imagined. Can he can tempt her again and finally give her the epic love story she has refused to write for herself?
Words can't express how thankful I am for the support of Hot Builder, Katharine Ashe, MK and my fellow Lady Scribes: Andris Bear, Ava Stone and Erin Knightley .
So, Dear Reader, have you ever taken a leap of faith or know someone who did?
