#ThrowbackThursday My Very First Book!

As I’ve mentioned, it’s been 15 years since my very first release, NOW AND ALWAYS! It was so exciting to get “The Call” from the editor saying that they wanted not only that book, but a second. Wow!

I was totally doing the happy dance that day. To celebrate today, NOW AND ALWAYS is free at various locations and is part of the specially priced SOUTH BEACH SIZZLES COLLECTION, now only .99 cents for the month of September.

Today’s throwback is to the cover of RT Magazine which featured NOW AND ALWAYS on the cover. I’m told the very sexy man on the cover is none other than well-known cover model John DeSalvo. I remember the first time my boss saw the cover. He said, “It’s very . . . pink.” I guess he didn’t know what else to say although he’s been a good egg about my writing gig over the last 15 years.

FAITH IN YOU #FreeRead

I always tell people that I’m so impatient, I couldn’t even wait for the thimble of patience that was being handed out. So, even though I’ve got a big cover reveal planned for July 16th, I could not wait to share an excerpt with you from FAITH IN YOU, the sequel to NOW AND ALWAYS.

I knew even as I was writing NOW AND ALWAYS that Connie’s little sister Carmen had to find someone special to love. I also knew that Connie’s antagonist, FBI Agent Paul Stone, had a lot more going on that made him hero material in a future book. So that’s how FAITH IN YOU was born.

Why July 16th for the cover reveal? Well, Carmen is named after my sister and mom and July 16th is the saint’s day for the Virgin of Carmen, also known as Our Lady of Mt. Carmel. In Spain and other Latin countries, there are many festivals to celebrate the patron saint of sailors and other mariners.

It seemed fitting to have the reveal on that saint’s day!

So without further ado, here is a free read from FAITH IN YOU, the story of Carmen and FBI Agent Paul Stone.

Fall back Friday NOW AND ALWAYS Playlist

I had a very definite playlist in mind when I wrote NOW AND ALWAYS. The playlist was filled with songs that conjured up sultry tropical nights in Miami and the heartbreak of love that didn’t come easy.

So this Friday we’re falling back to the 1990s and Gloria Estefan’s Can’t Stay Away From You. I could so picture this being Connie’s song as she deals with all the love and angst of a relationship with Victor.

Behind the Scenes of NOW AND ALWAYS

My latest release, NOW AND ALWAYS, is set in Miami. As a kid, we always went to Miami in August to visit family and friends. It used to be a fun road trip as we made our way from New York, down the East Coast and eventually to Miami. We used to stay in South Beach back then, not because it was trendy, but because it was inexpensive. At one point we stopped staying there as the area had gotten too bad.

It’s nice to see South Beach revived to its Art Deco splendor. I was lucky enough to revisit South Beach a few years back and here are some of the photos from Ocean Drive and the South Beach area. In NOW AND ALWAYS, Connie gets an apartment in this area while she goes undercover and fights her attraction to sexy physician Victor.

This is a view of the beach from Lummus Park. The brightly colored lifeguard stands are a staple of the Miami Beaches.

South Beach Lummus Park

There are quite a number of glamorous hotels in South Beach. This is the pool area at the Loew’s Hotel. Lovely place right near Lincoln Drive. For those who read KISSED BY A VAMPIRE, lots of action in that book happens along Lincoln Drive, a pedestrian mall lined by restaurants, clubs, and stores.

The smaller and older hotels are famous for their Art Deco style and neon. The neon throws its color into the tropical night, making it come alive.
