Lone Enforcer is Here! For 99 cents!

Fantastic Fridays

a blog for celebration

Get ready for romance!

Hot alpha shifter cowboy romance…Yeah baby!

It’s here…again! July 2017 I published Lone Enforcer, a Wolf Enforcers novella, in the box set, The Alphas of Summer. But now that’s over and I have the rights back, so here it is, all on it’s own…And only 99 cents!

If you’re wondering how this book fits into the Wolf Enforcer Series, it slides in between Wolf Enforcer and Blood Enforcer. So, technically, it’s book #2

If you haven’t read the Wolf Enforcer Series, you can still jump in here. It’s all about alpha wolf shifters, hot romance (this one is hot!) and suspense.

I love a book that moves, so be prepared for action and adventure. And romance. Did I mention the romance? AND it’s a cowboy romance. You can’t beat that! Shifters and cowboys—mmm, my favorites all wrapped up into one. 🙂

You can discover it today on Amazon.com, and if you’re in Kindle Unlimited, it’s there too!

Enjoy!

On the hunt for her best friend, Natalie discovers it’s more than murder…it’s wolf shifters.

Armed with her best friend’s last known location, Natalie Fisher heads out into the wilds of the Rocky Mountains. When the trail leads to private property, Natalie doesn’t hesitate, but her dangerous search for clues only leads her to a blood soaked piece of land, and a trip down a rocky ravine.

Volunteer pack enforcer and full-time ranch hand, Luca Weylyn has been a loner his entire life. When riding fences he finds Natalie trapped and injured near what could be a murder site he realizes—her big brown eyes and determined attitude have finally given him a reason to break free from his lonely cowboy’s life. But Natalie is human, and Luca is a wolf shifter.  Can there be any future for Luca with a woman if he can never share his secrets?

When Natalie’s insistence on hunting down the truth conflicts with the pack’s needs, will Luca reveal being a wolf shifter in order to keep her? Or will the other enforcers insist that Natalie’s life be sacrificed for the good of the pack?

Happy New Year! Let’s Get Organized!

Fantastic Fridays

a blog for the new year

It’s 2018 and that time of year again, the time when we authors get motivated and decide what the year will look like. If we manage to stick to our goals.

I love goal setting. I love thinking of all the possibilities for the New Year, and the next few months. I love looking ahead and dreaming of what’s coming up. But this year I’m only posting one goal:

Simplify.

What does that mean?

Well, it means that I’m trying to slim down everything in my life so that I can focus on what’s truly important.

Here’s how it works:

I’m going to write more, and hopefully publish more. If I focus on just that one thing as a priority, I believe it will change my entire way of working. So, my goals for 2018 are simple.

  1. write more
  2. stay focused on the writing
  3. write

And that’s it.

No, that’s not true!

You guessed it! I have a whole bunch of goals on my Jessica Aspen Write’s goal list, but they all support this one goal. Write.

So, I hope you’ll forgive me if I forget to post here, send out newsletters, jump on to Facebook, or anything else that isn’t writing more books, because 2018 is all about producing new words. And I’m super excited about it!

What kind of goals to you have for 2018? Do you choose one big goal, or do you have a ton of tiny goals? Would simplifying your goals work for you? Why or why not?

Take care, and have a safe and happy New Year!

-Jessica

Guest shares background of

Ghosts of Christmas Past

by

Jessica Aspen

Today we turn our blog over to an author friend, Jessica Aspen, who’s books we enjoy reading. She is going to share some background on her new book and has a gift for you.

Hi all,
I’m Jessica Aspen and I write twisted fairy tales, fantasy romance and paranormal romance. First of all, I want to thank C.D. Hersh for having me on their blog. And to show how excited I am, I’m offering each and every one of you a free copy of my book, Ghosts of Christmas Past.

I wrote Ghosts of Christmas Past because I love all the thrills, chills and danger of Gothic romance. I was brought up reading classics by authors like Daphne Du Maurier, Victoria Holt, and Phyllis Whitney and when I had the opportunity to write my own modern…

Turkey Week Sales Specials!

Happy Thanksgiving week!

Brown eyed susans 1

It’s been a crazy fall. Actually, it was a crazy summer, but fall seems to always be even more busy and packed with too many things to do. Not only have I published four full-length books, participated in a box set, and published a Kindle-World Novella, but I’ve been super busy with personal stuff, like losing one of our huge trees and moving my folks into memory care. Both of which have been traumatic in their own ways.

At least it’s almost Thanksgiving. WOOT!

Just a couple of catch up events…

  1. Touch of Beauty is now available in Kindle Unlimited! That’s right, you can now read Touch of Beauty for free! (If you are a KU member)
  2. All of the Sexy Shifters are now in KU, including the box set!
  3. Ghosts of Christmas Past is almost gone! I will be taking down Ghosts of Christmas Past after the holiday season. If you’ve missed it, don’t forget to download it before it goes away.
  4. PACK ENFORCER IS OUT!!! And as of this week it is now in Kindle Unlimited where it joins the other Wolf Enforcer books: Wolf Enforcer and Blood Enforcer. WOOT!

I’m super thankful for each and every one of you who read, review, and share my books. Thank  you. This business is a constant worry about so many things. Am I writing the right book? Will you think it’s good? What should I write next? Reading what you all have to say about my books in your reviews and how much you love them makes it all worth it. 🙂

So, thank you! And just in case you’ve missed any of the specials that have been going on, here’s one more:

Wolf Enforcer is $1.99, just for you!

Wolf Enforcer (Wolf Enforcers Book 1)

Serena Lowell’s move to Colorado isn’t going as planned. Her new boss hates her. She’s falling in love with the wrong twin. And a stalker is sending her roses.

When the sexiest woman alive walked up to Gabe Wolfric and demanded to make love, he knew he’d met his mate. Falling head over tail for the mysterious Serena turns out to be the biggest mistake of his life because Gabe’s twin, Sam, is also in love with the dreamwalker.

As Serena turns from one alpha shifter to the other she doesn’t know that she’s being watched, and her stalker thinks that the Wulfric brothers are standing in the way of his happy ending.

Now both twins are suffering from mating fever and Serena has to make a choice, a choice that will give one twin the mate of his dreams—and set the other up for a chaotic fall into the wild. If, she can survive the obsessive love of her secret stalker…

Welcome Nanowrimo 2017!

NANOWRIMO!!! WOOT!

NaNo-2017-Participant-Badge

This is the year! This is the year that I write fifty thousand brand new words in one month!

I’ve participated in National Novel Writing Month several times. Including the year, a very long time ago, when I didn’t sign up on the website but I tried to write something, anything, that looked like a novel. Needless to say, that year wasn’t my greatest success. But this year will be.

Why?

Because I’m an experienced Nanowrimo writer now. And I understand my writing process. You see, some people can write their minimum 1,667 words per day and make it to 50k. Not me. If I try to do that, I’ll hit a day when I don’t write at all, and then the next day I need to do 3,333 to catch up. But something will happen, and I won’t, so then I’ll need 5,000 words in one day. And we all know that that’s a lot of words.

Can I do this? Let’s look at the stats:

The most words I’ve ever achieved during a November Nanowrimo is back in 2012 when I wrote GOLDI‘s rough draft of 21,588. I’ve done more during Camp Nano, mostly because the month is not interrupted by a major holiday, like Thanksgiving. During Camp Nano, my record was this summer when I wrote 41,220 and completed a rough draft of PACK ENFORCER.

If I can do 41,220 words in a month, than 50k is totally doable!

So, here’s the plan:

  1. Have a cohesive idea for the book
  2. Outline the book (okay, I do a very loose outline of story beats, but it works!)
  3. write as much as I can during the first three weeks

Yeah, having a major holiday in November sucks for me because I have Thanksgiving for the extended family at my house, but there is no reason I can’t do this. It will just take strategic planning.

Hence, the rest of the plan…

  1. Shop for Thanksgiving early
  2. Follow the Fly Lady’s holiday prep plan
  3. Delegate
  4. Don’t stress!

I have a plan, I have an idea. Now, all I have to do is get some kind of an outline in place so I can hit the ground running on November 1st.

Who’s with me????
