10 words to cut from your writing:

Note to self…

Oooh I’ve GOT to remember number 10! 😛

10 words to cut from your writing

By Shanna Mallon |
As Mark Twain famously wrote, “I didn’t have time to write a short letter, so I wrote a long one instead.” His point? Strong writing is lean writing.

When you want to make your writing more powerful, cut out words you don’t need—such as the 10 included in this post:

1. Just: The word “just” is a filler word that weakens your writing. Removing it rarely affects meaning, but rather, the deletion tightens a sentence.

2. Really: Using the word “really” is an example of writing the way you talk. It’s a verbal emphasis that doesn’t translate perfectly into text. In conversation, people use the word frequently, but in written content it’s unnecessary. Think about the difference between saying a rock is “hard” and “really hard,” for example. What does…

Watch This Space–Suzie Jay

‘Tis the season for a great Christmas romance and  I have just the one for you.  Merry Christmas, Eve by Suzie Jay is exactly what you’re looking for.

Here’s my review on Amazon.

I loved Merry Christmas, Eve by Suzy Jay. Confident, driven career woman Eve Taylor finds herself stranded with other travelers in a snowstorm at the Nashville airport on the day before Christmas Eve. All she wants is to be alone in her own home for the holidays.
One of her fellow strandees happens to be a tall, sexy businessman named Grayson Parker. With nothing but time on her hands, Eve indulges in a little fantasy and flirtation.
But she’s put her personal life on the back burner for so long now, she’s not sure she can take a chance on love. Grayson is a damaged soul with a few mysteries of his own.
Will there be a Merry Christmas for them?

This is a quick read, just perfect for this busy time of year.  While you’re bustling around making sure everyone else has a happy holiday, take a few moments for yourself and enjoy this delightful book.

This Is Way Better!

Watch This Space–Jolie Mason

I just read a cool, exciting, sexy story by Jolie MasonRiding Redemption: The 47th Lancers #1 is a sci-fi thriller with heartfelt, sexy romance.  This is not my usual read, but I have to tell you, I can’t wait to read more of this story.

I’m including the Amazon link because I know you’re going to want to check this out.  It’s only 99¢, and it’s FREE with Kindle Unlimited.

Here’s my review from Amazon and Goodreads.

Thrilling Adventure With a Side of Romance

I loved this story! Wendy, call-sign Dahlia, and Beau, call-sign Jackson, are members of the 47th Lancers, tasked with repelling alien invaders. They also happen to be former lovers. But when Jackson got too close, Dahlia broke it off. Now they struggle to work together and maintain their professionalism.

This story has heart-pounding action and I love the fact that the author doesn’t dumb down the technical details of battle. There’s also hot romance. I can’t wait to read the next installment.

If book nerds ran the world.

This is a fabulous idea!

wait… I kinda think we do. Without writers and book nerds there would be no Star Wars; no Star Trek, no ipads, no innovation… no inspiration.  We SHOULD have a day…. National Author’s Day. We’d get discounts on ink and paper, there’d be free ebooks given away on publishing… free coffee at starbucks if you come in and work on your book there.

All kinds of stuff 🙂 Let’s make it a thing!!

Rannigan’s Redemption–Introductions

Rannigan’s Redemption Part 1: Resisting Risk launches on December 8.  It’s my follow-up to Luke & Bella: Two Streets Over.

Rannigan’s Redemption is about the complicated relationship between hotshot attorney Michael Rannigan and Maggie Flynn, the recent law school grad he just hired.  From the moment they met at a job fair at his alma mater, she’s left him feeling unsettled.  She’s smart and good at her job, and she’s not afraid to bust his balls on occasion.  She also looks at him in that way that most women do.  Good thing she’s not his type.

Meet the Michael and Maggie.

While it doesn’t come out until December 8, Rannigan’s Redemption is available for pre-order right now at Amazon, B&N, iTunes, and Kobo.
