LAST CHANCE BEACH: Summer's EndAugust brings the culmination of a lot of hard work by half of our Romance Gems Authors. Back in June, I had a little free time and an idea that I could put together a box set of romance short stories, thus fulfilling one of my stated goals when I started Romance Gems in February 2019.
Free Time Is Dangerous
Wow! A little free time can be dangerous!
I knew about formatting, Kindle Digital Publishing, marketing—all of the required elements to successfully write and publish.
BUT, I had no clue how much work it would be. *LOL*
Endless emails. Organizing all of the elements.
Encouraging authors to learn what Nancy Fraser, Maddie James, and I wanted to teach. The list of things to learn was seemingly endless to many, and probably not of interest to Readers.
Somehow, we got everything done, and Last Chance Beach: Summer's End will publish on August 4 at midnight, for a measly 99 cents! That's right, only 99 pennies (plus tax if you're in a state that taxes online sales).
With Maddie James and Hannah Rowan in the role of Publisher, we created Cocktails on Last Chance Beach, a FREE companion book to the 14 Romance Short Stories Collection.
That's right, totally free! You can get your copy at Amazon, iBooks, or Kobo.
Click Last Chance Beach on the Menu bar to read all about it. Then rush out and buy your copy of Last Chance Beach: Summer's End and get your completely free ebook of Cocktails on Last Chance Beach too.
I was so busy putting this project together and managing it that I nearly forgot I had to write a romantic short story too.
I had just finished writing The Key to Kristina, a mystery romance, for the Fortune's Favor: The Treasure box set so I was in the mystery mode.
I started writing a funny romance, but a little bit of a suspense element sneaked crept in albeit in a small way.
My story for Last Chance Beach: Summer's End is Hot August Night.
When they met it was hate at first sight for celebrity chef Zander Rojas and junk food loving police detective Chelsea Elliot.
They’re not just dismayed when they discover they each have a reservation for Blue Moon House.
They’re determined to make life miserable for the other and be the last inhabitant standing when the feud is over.
Imagine how horrified they are when they realize they have the hots for each other.
