#FridayFun Counting down to Beauty and the Beast

One of my fav movies of all time is Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. I was totally charmed by this movie when it came out and really felt like it deserved Best Picture that year. I am therefore counting down the minutes until I go see the live action version. I hope it doesn’t disappoint.

For today, I’m sharing this fun clip of 10 Secrets you didn’t know about this Disney classic.

#TeaserTuesday Under the Boardwalk & LSF Writers Conference

Sorry I’ve been absent off and on, but lots of new things going on in my life. Some moving and downsizing. Some revisions and getting to work on #2 in the AT THE SHORE contemporary romance series.

Also, I’m now the President of the Liberty States Fiction Writers. Very exciting, especially since we’re having our 8th Annual Conference in a little over a month. There are some great workshops for writers and an awesome line-up of panels and fun events for readers. You can check them out here: http://bit.ly/2fh79LJ

I hope to see some of you there!

Today I’m sharing a teaser from UNDER THE BOARDWALK. In this sensual and emotional story, a husband and wife, Chase and Natalie, have lost the passion as their lives have pulled them apart. The love is still there, but it is caught up in a lot of other things that are keeping them from being real with each other. In this story, they get real again and try to rekindle their love and marriage, but also find themselves again.

Teaser

Natalie Ramirez has spent less and less time with her husband over the last year and more and more time alone. She longs for the happy days of summer when she and Chase would pass the time together on the beach and under the boardwalk, exploring the passion that simmered between them as hot as any summer sun.

Chase Smith had to work hard for everything he ever had, including his wife Natalie. His wife had never wanted for anything in her life and Chase didn’t want to disappoint her. But somewhere along the way, Chase lost sight of the most important thing she wanted: his love.

A passionate night under the boardwalk brought them together, but can Chase and Natalie rekindle that lost love and save their marriage?

#FreebieFriday Ghost of a Chance

GHOST OF A CHANCE, my ghost hunting story set on the Jersey Shore with a Prohibition era ghost, is free to download. Here’s a little blurb for the story:

What would you do to win a million dollary prize?

True crime writer Tracy Gomez is unsure of what to make of the unusual invitation from New York City attorney Peter Angelo: A one million dollar prize to anyone who can solve the mystery of three deaths which had occurred nearly eighty years earlier. Tracy desperately needs the money to fix up the old inn she’s just inherited and solving the crime will also provide welcome publicity to help her sagging writing career. But accepting the invitation brings unexpected challenges, like spectral help during a séance and Tracy’s attraction to the sexy attorney monitoring the contest. Does Tracy only have a ghost of a chance to discover the secrets of the past or can she win a prize far better than a million dollars?

The novella is not yet free on Amazon despite my many requests for them to lower the price. Please let them know about the lower price at the other retailers by clicking on the “tell us about a lower price” on the website (see below)! Thanks.

#TeaserTuesday Mind: The Reckoning by Jenn Nixon

Mind The Reckoning Sci Fi RomanceI’m happy to have with me here today my buddy Jenn Nixon who has a new release out! Jenn is going to be sharing a teaser and excerpt from MIND: THE RECKONING which features a fan favorite, Baldwin Bates. Baldwin finally gets his own story and HEA in this book and to celebrate the new release, books 1 and 2 are both on sale for the rest of the week! You can find all three books here:
MIND: The Beginning .99 cents
MIND: The Emergence $1.99
MIND: THE RECKONING

Teaser

Baldwin Bates has only wanted one thing since joining MIND, to take care of his friends and keep them all safe. While the Meta-Alien Investigation and Neutralization Department is busy monitoring an emergence of human psychic and alien activity, Bates takes his first solo assignment searching for a woman who claims to see the future, only to botch it up and let her get away.

After helping to destroy an alien device called the Transcender, Lexa Quinn wakes from a two-week coma a very different person than she was before. While her abilities grow stronger, her feelings for Bates begin to interfere with the MIND team’s mission, putting everyone at risk. Secrets from her past threaten the present and future, forcing Lexa to decide who she is and where she belongs.

When a powerful, ancient enemy lays claim to the Earth and brings his judgment upon the population, Bates, Lexa, and the entire MIND team must do whatever it takes to save the human race before the reckoning is complete.

Excerpt

As Bates bypassed the crafters and artists, the scent of Asian BBQ wafted through the air. He grumbled along with his stomach and hoped a few of them stuck around so he could pick something up on his way out.

“How’s it going?” Dina Ranger asked via his earcomm, jolting him.

“Shit! Forgot I had this bloody thing in,” he replied, taking a breath and shutting his eyes for a second.

“Have to get used to it if you want to be in the field…alone.”

“Unlike your brother, I need some me time, Sherlock.” This time, he chuckled when he felt her brush his mind with calming thoughts. “How’s Lexa? Any change?”

“No, nothing. Never changes. I…just don’t get it.”

“Me either,” he said with a sigh, quickly putting it out of his mind to maintain his focus. “I just got to the park. I’ll check in before I leave.”

“Okay. And whatever has you so hungry bring some back. Talk to ya.”

Shaking his head, Bates waited for the static of the comm to fade before pushing farther into the park, eyeing the tables and tents, but mostly their occupants, searching for a face. Miss Takashi had a pretty face, although older now, since the photo from the collective Meta-alien Investigation and Neutralization Department database was almost one hundred years old.

When he neared the end of the first row of vendor tents, he took in the sight of the city across the river, and then found the second and final row of vendors left to search.

He politely declined several offers to purchase various items like candles and potholders, wondering why his ‘blah face’—a term his new friend Kim called his usual stern façade—wasn’t working.

Toward the middle of the second row, Bates slowed, eyeing a colorful booth, shrouded in light purple curtains, and a sign that screamed for attention. When a face-painted toddler, followed by a frantic parent, came running out of the booth, he barely sidestepped out of the way. The parent offered Bates a weary shrug. He nodded politely and carried onward, finally seeing a sign for “Madam Takashi” two booths down.

Author Bio: Jenn Nixon’s love of writing started the year she received her first diary and Nancy Drew novel. Throughout her teenage years, she kept a diary of her personal thoughts and feelings but graduated from Nancy Drew to other mystery suspense novels.

Jenn often adds a thriller and suspense element to anything she writes be it Romance, Science Fiction, or Fantasy. When not writing, she spends her time reading, observing pop culture, playing with her two dogs, and working on various charitable projects in her home state of New Jersey.
