ABOUT THE BOOK:  A psychic interior designer reluctantly agrees to renovate a sexy investor’s abandoned hotel on a lake rumored to have once been the mob’s body dumping ground.

Interior designer Kate Bardach loves her single girl’s lifestyle—living in Manhattan and spending weekends at her lake house. She’s passionate about her career: reinventing old buildings. But there are some projects she can’t take on because of the spirits trapped there. Kate is psychic—she sees dead people.

Marco Lareci is one of Wall Street’s most successful investment brokers who’s achieved all of his life’s goals—except for finding his soulmate. His latest project, an abandoned resort on Loch Sheldrake, needs a savvy designer to transform the crumbling complex into a boutique hotel. When Marco meets Kate, he can’t believe his luck. She’s the perfect match for his business and his heart.

Marco’s body excites Kate even more than does his renovation project. But the haunting there, a bonafide poltergeist, affects her on an intensely personal level. Kate’s aunt disappeared from the place fifty years ago.

Will the spirit doom Kate and Marco’s love, or drive them closer together?

STELLAR REVIEWS!

From Book Blogger TMBorgwardt, 5 stars: “There is mystery, love, betrayal, murder, supernatural and even some heartbreak in this story… I enjoyed this book and look forward to more from this author.”

From Book Blogger Heena Rathore, 4 stars: “This book started out with a brilliant opening and I was dragged into the story right from the very first page.”

From Bailey (Amazon), 5 stars: “I was sucked in immediately by the writing and crafting of characters and truly couldn’t put it down. The paranormal plot enhancement and emotional ending had me in tears.”

SNEAK PEEK:

“Congratulations, pretty woman. I guess we both bet on the right horse today.”

Kate shrieked and spun around toward the deep voice coming not only from behind, but above her. She’d had no idea she wasn’t the only one in the stands. How could she possibly have missed this guy?

He appeared taller than he probably was, standing on the level above her which gave him a nine-inch advantage. Broad and imposing under a voluminous, black trench coat, he looked like an old-time mobster with his dark hair and oddly hued, light eyes. And those eyes were studying her with an expression Kate couldn’t quite decipher.

Interest? Curiosity? Or downright hunger?

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Six years ago, rodeo cowboy Matt Halderman ran out on a spunky, wide-eyed student he’d just met.  Now he’s found that a chance meeting with an eccentric billionaire has resulted in an inheritance that will allow Matt to do something he’s long dreamed of – caring for rodeo horses at the end of their lives.

Zoe Parisi hasn’t forgotten Matt or the night he walked out on her.  She lost her head that night, but it’s been squarely back on her shoulders ever since. A doctor now, she is on track to take over an established practice in Knighton, Wyoming.  She’d been sure when she decided to settle in Knighton that Matt would never return to the ranch where he grew up. But now, here he comes, waltzing back into town … looking just as good as ever and with a bunch of money.

wyo wildflowers seriesWHERE LOVE LIVES:  The just-released Book 6 of Patricia McLinn’s Wyoming Wildflowers series, “Where Love Lives,” also is part of The Inheritance, a 12-author project that tells how eccentric billionaire Harold Hopewell’s bequests affect the life – and loves – of 12 people he chanced to meet. Each book is told in the author’s style, from sweet romance to mystery to erotica. In “Where Love Lives,” Zoe and Matt tussle over the best use of Hopewell’s bequest to the rodeo cowboy. But a deeper question looms: Will one night stand in the way of their spending the rest of their days together?

So You Want To Be A Bestselling Author? Part 9: Q and A with bestseller Ruth Cardello

1525041_763874253623047_936091427_nSo happy that Ruth Cardello is our Q and A guest today. Ruth is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author. She is also SUPER savvy on social media and is DYNAMITE at utilizing social networking to promote her books and help turn them into BIG hits.

Why do you write?taken_not_spurred-2xer5tft36936dfnce8cne

I have always been passionate about reading romance stories. As a young girl I would stay up all night secretly reading the newest Harlequin novel. Writing became a natural way for me to escape into the worlds I loved being ensconced in. It is also a way for me to get the voices in my head to quiet down . . . or at least it gives me an excuse for them.

BeddingTheBillionaire-ebook-2xcx6nll4n8vh1kd2nfw96You are known for being an Internet success story –tell us how that came about.

I wouldn’t take “no” for an answer. Publishers told me that the story I had submitted was good but not what they were looking for. I was determined to publish my book. I started searching on the Internet for information on self-publishing. It was still very new at that time. I methodically began connecting and networking with other authors online. Once my first book was self-published, I began connecting with my readers and sharing my knowledge with other authors who were just starting out. I’ve paid forward my good fortune each and every chance I had and I like to think that is what has brought so many wonderful people into my life. Writing a novel is a solitary process. Publishing it is not.

Some authors cringe at the idea of social media and see it as a waste of time away from their writing. What do you think about it? How much time do you spend on social media every day?

come-away-with-me-2wc5yekda8llpnwyuk1c7eI use every social media outlet possible.  I am on Facebook, where I have a personal page, a Business Page, and several other pages that are used for networking with other authors and my readers. I am also on twitter , Goodreads, Google+, Authorgraph and Pinterest.  I dedicate at least one hour a day solely to connecting with my readers and other authors.

Based on your own experience, do you think it’s a good idea for an author to invest in his or her own promotional or marketing budget? If so – what are some of the important things that an author should consider?

Yes, writing is a business and any business owner will tell you that you have to invest in yourself to grow. The initial investment can be time, but never underestimate the value of a good editor. Important things to consider are budget, target market, and finding the best advertisers within budget that will reach the most readers. A good cover and a good tag line are also important in your promotion.

What are the top three things every author needs to do to create a buzz around a new release?

MaidfortheBillionaire-ebook-2xcx6mccppwzok3n7zlc7e1. The best tool for me is my newsletter.  If you have a newsletter, use it to notify your readers of your new release. Every reader who reads your book and doesn’t sign up to stay connected with you in some way may forget you by the time you release your next. Not because they didn’t love your book, but because of the sheer number of good books available out there.

2. Inform your readers of your release via all of your social media outlets. Post about your release on Facebook. Tweet about it. Share it on Google + and add it to your blog. Encourage your fans to share it with their friends.

3. If you can arrange for a Blog Blitz or a Book Blog Tour you can reach even more readers.

What do you think of the notion that you’re not only an author but you’re a business person too? Does that resonate with you?

ForLoveOrLegacy-ebook-2xcx6myyx6kxksu05bim8aAbsolutely. Wearing an author’s hat and a business hat keeps me busy! Sometimes I have to set the business aspect of writing aside so it doesn’t cut into my writing time. But I can’t always put the business aside because being an author is like running a very busy shop where you are the sole employee.

Who are some of your favourite authors and why?

I have a lot of authors who have inspired me throughout the years.  I couldn’t begin to list them all here. Annette Blair and Sandra Marton were amazing to me when I first started out and I hero worshipped both for their writing ability.

What would I find on your desk at this very moment?

My laptop, an iPad, my cell phone, a plaque that reads “if you can dream it, you can do it – Walt Disney”, a bottle of water and some carrot sticks.

What is your favourite guilty pleasure treat that you indulge in when writing?
I don’t eat chocolate or many sweets, but I do love to start my writing day with an iced French Vanilla coffee.
 
RiseOfTheBillionaire-ebook-2xcx6p8e2g6blo9p2wuf4aA great writer or a good book doesn’t necessarily translate to hitting a bestseller list. What do you think the bestselling authors do differently than authors who don’t sell as well?

It’s a whole new world out here in Indie publishing. You’re right there are many good books that don’t hit the lists. All things equal, to make a list your book has to be seen. It’s that simple. How an author gets their book in the hands of new readers and grows their reader base—that’s an individual path all the best sellers created for themselves. But the bottom line is always the same. A good book needs to find its readers. Once it does that, it’s on its way.

On the heels of tragic loss, the stunning and innocent Natalie Mason, meets handsome business mogul Mac Carter. As Natalie attempts to pick up the pieces of her shattered life, circumstances beyond her control draw her and Mac into a situation she wants kept secret. The two are a matched set having both experienced immense loss in their lives. Uncertain of what she should do, she decides to give fate a chance, opening her heart to Mac, who just wants to love her.

But the past, who often times takes no prisoners, rears its ugly head in a double dose. Mac’s ex-girlfriend cannot accept that their love affair is over and takes drastic measures through deception and blackmail to ensure that Mac will be hers.

Natalie, on the other hand, has to face the one responsible for her sister’s death. As her journey begins to bring justice and closure, the past transports to her feet an unexpected surprise—a long lost love desiring to posses her as his once again.

Will Mac and Natalie’s newly blossoming love be able to endure what the past has delivered or will the victors of their hearts be the old flames who are staking their claim?

ABOUT CARLIE:

I have always been a sucker for a good love story, especially with angst. I have read most of Nicholas Spark’s books for this very reason. I had no idea that I would be writing a book let alone three a year ago. My books are a work of fiction with some real events that happened to me woven in.

I began writing Fallen for You in October 2012 after I had the pleasure of meeting a well-known indie author who inspired me to push forward and complete my story. At the time, I thought Fallen for You was just going to be one book, but it has blossomed into three books. Taken by You and book 3 Given to You complete The Killer Next Door series. I wove real life and fiction together to create the series.

My latest release, Beholden is a stand-alone, but a spin-off of characters from my trilogy. It has been amazing to bring characters to life and watch them grow on the pages of my manuscript.

I have several more books in mind that I want to bring to life.

I am a second grade teacher  in my 9th year. Teaching has been so rewarding because I get to impart my love for reading onto my students. There’s nothing better than seeing a child’s face light up when they are reading a great book.

I currently reside in Southern California with my loving husband and two dogs. We enjoy the lifestyle that California has to offer and spend time at the beach and in the mountains.

WHAT IT’S ABOUT:
Despite a wonderful family, a career she loves, and great friends, a void has existed in Lauren McDonald’s life ever since her best friend, Callie, married billionaire Dylan Talbot. Although they have remained close, Lauren and Callie now lead very different lives. When Lauren meets wealthy CEO Kevin Walsh, she believes he could be the man to make her life whole again. That is until the night Nathaniel Callahan, her high school sweetheart and the one man she has always loved, shows up.

Fifteen years ago Nate ended things with Lauren before heading off to the Naval Academy and his life with the Marines, but he never stopped loving her. Now he’s home to correct the mistake he made all those years ago.

Who will win her heart: the man who can promise her the world or the man who has the power to crush her heart again?
