It’s hard being a writer. Your job is basically sitting in front of a screen all day long. While that can lead to productivity, it can also lead to health problems. Inactivity isn’t good for anybody.
This month, J.H. Moncrieff, Drew Kozub and I talk about Fitness for Writers. I am fortunate enough to have a treadmill, and I take two or three 10-minute breaks in the afternoon. (I walk at 3 miles per hour, so I get 1.0 or 1.5 miles a day in.) And, when the warmer weather comes, I’ll do my story plotting while mowing the lawn or weeding the garden. These may not work of you, but between the three of us, I hope you find a fitness regime that helps you.
(By the way, J.H. has a new book out. Monsters in our Wake should have you running away from your e-reader in terror. That counts!)
Hey, my romantic suspense readers! Have you heard about Booksweeps? You have the chance to win over 40 romantic suspense books. Check out this link for details. One of these books is PURSUIT, and the third and final book of the Calendar Killer trilogy will be out later this year.
Part of this contest is newsletter sign-ups. The good news is that a lot of these authors will likely be offering a free book in their emails, so check them out.
(If you sign up for a newsletter and decide you don’t want to receive it anymore, please UNSUBSCRIBE instead of marking it as spam. Thank you, from someone who has to deal with the back-end of a newsletter subscriptions service.)
In the interest of getting you hooked on as many new authors as possible, I’m happy to spread the news about BookSweeps. You can enter to win all kinds of free e-books, you can check out a bunch of authors at the same time.
It’s sorted by genre, so you can get tailor-made choices delivered right to your inbox. Romantic suspense? They’ve got that. Sports romances? Sci-fi? Pick any and all you want.
I’m going to be upfront with you. It is a promo site. You do have the chance to win free books, and get free books from authors, but you’ll be signed up to authors’ newsletters. They tell you this when you sign up, so it won’t be a surprise. I still recommend you go for it. Open the first newsletter, see if you like it. If you don’t, unsubscribe. Please don’t mark it as spam because that causes problems for the author (and you did agree to get the newsletter.)

Hello, boos and ghouls. I wish you a very happy Hallowe’en, whether you are handing out the candy, or are out collecting it.
In case you have some time between trick-or-treaters, may I suggest Decker and Joy from the Crazy Cat Ladies collection? Four adorable kittens, a surly PI, and a woman determined to keep them all together at the end of October. (It may also have Elvis, but I’m not telling.)
Available at Amazon US, Amazon CA, Amazon AU, Amazon UK, iBooks, Nook, and Kobo
It’s here! It’s here! DECKER AND JOY: A North Pole Unlimited Romance is part of “Crazy Cat Ladies” – a collection of nine stories, each starring a cat lady who finds love thanks to her feline companions.
My entry is the first story in my North Pole Unlimited series.
Jaded P.I. Decker Harkness must track down a missing prototype if he wants a shot at a corporate security contract with the mysterious North Pole Unlimited. Sexy cat shelter manager Joy McCall has her own investigation running – she needs to figure out who broke into Kitten Caboodle and made off with her foster kittens before she can decide if she wants to leave her hometown – and potential new man – for a new job. They’ll have to work together to get the happy ending they both deserve.
AND there are eight other stories. AND it’s only $0.99 for now. What a purr-fect combination of events for hours of enjoyment. (Catnip not included.)

Just in time for Hallowe’en, J. H. Moncrieff, Drew Kozub and I talk about horror. Mostly books, but some movie references make an appearance.
This month, The Write Cast chat about all things spooky and scary as they delve into crafting the feeling of fear in writing. Discussions of monsters, horror tropes, and classic characters weave into this month’s discussion. What do you find to be the most unsettling, unnerving, and downright scary when you’re reading or writing?
It’s less than a month till the launch of Crazy Cat Ladies. Nine authors, nine books, and nine couples brought together by some sneaky cats with soft-spots for the humans in their lives. There’s something to scratch the itch for every reader; comedy to suspense, sweet to deliciously scorching. And the introductory price is only $0.99 – it’s a steal!
My offering is Decker & Joy: A North Pole Unlimited Romance.
Jaded P.I. Decker Harkness must track down a missing Christmas prototype if he wants a shot at a corporate security contract. Sexy cat shelter manager Joy McCall needs help figuring out who broke into Kitten Caboodle and made off with her foster kittens. If they work together, everyone may get a happily-ever-after.
