The Christmas Guest | Cover Reveal

It's here! It's the day that I get to share the cover reveal for The Christmas Guest with you. This sweet Christmas romance will be coming just in time to celebrate Christmas in July, so keep reading to find out more about my next book release.

Lauren loves her job as a front desk agent at The Mount Hope Inn & Suites, but during the holiday season she has to be realistic. The normally fast paced atmosphere of the hotel grows even faster as guests come to town to visit their families and partake in the hotel's long list of Christmas activities. By this point in the season, she's just hoping to survive.

And maybe eat a couple of Christmas cookies.

But this year is different. With the impending winter storm that's supposed to hit right before Christmas Eve, activities at the hotel are up in the air. Guests are cancelling their reservations left and right, and her General Manager is already coming up with a snow emergency plan.

As Lauren dives into her job headfirst, she does her best to stay calm.  All she needs is a distraction. And that distraction comes in the form of a tall, handsome man who doesn't seem very happy about having to check into the hotel at the last minute.

His name is Tanner. And although he's a grump, he's a very cute grump.

Lauren knows that work must come first, but she takes Tanner's grumpiness as a challenge. Maybe if she can show him how special Christmas can be in Mount Hope, he'll open up more and learn to appreciate the season.

I'm currently working on edits and I'm just loving this story so much. I'm not sure what the release date will be yet. I want to see if Amazon will let me put it up as a preorder - I had a couple of mishaps back in 2020 where I didnt get things uploaded to my account in time and now I think I lost my preorder privileges. Lol.

Oh well. What can you do? I'll keep you posted on a future release date. I think it will be either late June or early July.

New Blog, Who Dis?

I decided back in January that 2021 is going to be my year. Over the course of the next 12 months I'm going to write my heart out and put serious effort into launching my writing career. 

There are a couple of reasons for this.
  1. I love to write and I want it to be my career.
  2. I want to be my own boss. I'd like to work from home and be in control of my own schedule.
  3. I like the idea of being able to put in extra time to get my work in. You don't really get that at a regular 9-5. At my current job they're very strict about overtime.
So there you have it! Those are some of the more practical reasons that I want to launch my writing & self publishing career this year. But there's also the fact that I have so many stories running around in my head. I want to start getting these stories down on paper and sharing them with others, because I think romance readers will enjoy them too.

This blog is going to be my writing hub. Here's what you can expect to find here.
  1.  Information on my writing process
  2.  Updates on new projects and book releases
  3.  Personal posts about books & tv (although if you're super curious about what I like to read, check out my book blog)
Thanks for stopping by!
