Since I am writing hockey romance books, I wanted to share with you guys some of my fave writers who also write in this romance sub-genre. I try to read other sports romance, but since hockey is my favorite sport, I tend to gravitate to these the most.Continue reading “My Fave Hockey Romance Writers”
One thing I knew I wanted to do when I started writing Take the Shot, the first in my hockey romance series, was come up with a team name. I’m a Flyers fan, so I wanted my team to be set in Philadelphia, but for legal reasons, I didn’t want to basically be writing Flyers fan-fiction. I know there is a hockey romance writer that did write fiction using The Flyers, but obviously all the guys on the team are fictional. From most of the books I’ve read all the teams have been fictional, and legally that is probably the better way to go. So how did I come up with The Philadelphia Bulldogs? It was kind of a placeholder!Continue reading “The Philadelphia Bulldogs Hockey Romance Series”
One thing I am struggling right now as I figure out my next step with self-pubbing is writing blurbs! I can write a 77,000 novel, but having to write copy to get someone to buy that book? And keep it at 150-200 words?? That shit is HARD!Continue reading “Why Are Blurbs So Hard to Write?!?”
My WIP Take The Shot starts with my heroine, Dinah Lace trying to work on her writing…and failing because of the hockey players who live next door to her throwing a party. Dinah was a fun character to write, she is eight years my hero Noah’s senior and they are best friends. Dinah is petite brunette who is stressed out with a job she hates and starting her career as a YA writer. She’s also been fighting her feelings for her neighbor and best friend, Noah Kennedy.Continue reading “Take The Shot – Character Bio – Dinah Lace”
Here’s another check-in with me on my current WIP Take the Shot. Today, I’m talking about the hero in my romance story Noah Kennedy.
I wrote Noah a little different than a lot of the sports romance heroes I have read about. He’s shy and quiet, and is kind of submissive. He’s a soft boy, and it’s more my heroine who is the alpha in the relationship. He’s a kind man who knows what he wants, and likes a woman who knows she’s in charge.Continue reading “Take The Shot – Character Bio – Noah Kennedy”
Here’s a new check in on my first WIP – Take the Shot. I wrote a blurb for it, but I’m not sure if I like it yet. I’ll be sharing it on My Books page once I am 100% on it. No one tells you how hard it is to write a freaking blurb! I wrote a 77,000 word novel, but writing a > 200 word blurb to get someone to buy that book?? SUPER HARD!
Here’s a new check in for me on my journey to publishing. I decided that I am going to go for this and self-pub my hockey romance series. I have four WIPs right now, all a part of a series, but each is about a different couple so they could standalone. WIP #1 is with two friends and I printed it out and am red penning the hard copy right now. and oh boy there is a lot of shit I need to change in it. But that’s progress!! So while doing that, I also have been doing a ton of RESEARCH!
The past couple of months, I’ve been reading and writing a lot of romance books. I’ve gotten really into hockey books, so I thought I would try my hand at writing them. Then oops I wrote FOUR books in a series. Like what? I’ve really enjoyed writing them…and I’m seriously considering trying my hand at this for real. Like, fuck it, let’s self-pub this stuff and see what happens. When I want to do something, I do it.
