A new year and a new book

I blogged about Memories of You months ago. I wrote “The End” and then decided to take a break to release a Lincoln Falls Christmas novella, The Best Gift of All.

The new year brings me back to Memories of You. I’m currently editing it and hope to announce a release date soon.

Memories of You is the fourth book in my Lincoln Falls series and tells the story of Lissa de la Fuente and Zach Brody. I hinted at their relationship in Finding the Dream.

In Memories of You, Zach is back for Stacia and Will’s wedding. While Zach is thrilled to see Lissa again, returning to Lincoln Falls means dealing with his abusive, alcoholic father who he hoped to never see again.

Lissa is still bitter over their breakup and seeing Zach dredges up the pain from when he left sixteen years ago. She tries to avoid Zach, but Lincoln Falls is a small town, making it difficult to avoid anyone.

Will they be able to get past all of their memories to have a future together? To find out, you’ll have to read it when it’s released.

My Current Playlist for Memories of You

I thought this week I’d take a break from TV and let you inside part of my writing process. Every book I write has a playlist and one theme song. I love the theme song because it’s what I believe truly captures the story and the characters.

I’m currently writing Memories of You, the next book in my Lincoln Falls series. It tells the story of Lissa and Zach. The theme song for this book is “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now” by Starship.

Here’s the rest of my playlist:

1. “Chances” by Air Supply

2. “Parachute” by Train

3. “Breakaway” by Kelly Clarkson

4. “Wild Wild Love” by Pitbull ft. G.R. L.

5. “Any Man of Mine” by Shania Twain

6. “Problem” by Ariana Grande

7. “Think Good Thoughts” by Colbie Caillat

8. “Shut Up and Dance” by Walk the Moon

9. “Going to the Chapel” by The Crystals

By the way, the theme song for The Best Intentions is “Hot N Cold” by Katy Perry and “Roar” by Katy Perry is the theme song for Finding the Dream. Yes, I was listening to a lot of Katy Perry when I wrote those books.

A Little Car Trouble for Jessica in Finding the Dream #MFRWHooks

Today, I’m posting a few sentences from Finding the Dream as part of Marketing for Romance Writers’ Book Hooks blog hop. In this scene, Jessica’s car has broken down and her neighbor, Eric, who she doesn’t get along with, has pulled over to help her.

Excerpt

Frustration bubbling up inside her, she yanked her purse out of the car. As she unzipped it, tires crunched on the gravel behind her car. A black sedan pulled to a stop.

Oh God. The last thing she needed was help from some psycho. Or her parent’s neighbor. No. No. No. Hadn’t she seen enough of him for one day? Suddenly calling her mother didn’t seem that bad.

“Looks like you’re a little overheated.”

She ignored his double entendre as she blew her sweaty bangs out of her eyes. “I don’t need help. I’ve got everything under control.”

Finding the Dream 3 EBOOK UPLOADBlurb

Jessica James had her dream—a career on Broadway as a successful actress—until one night when it was taken all away. Forced to move back to Lincoln Falls and live with her parents, Jessica’s only goal is to regain her career and go back to New York. She doesn’t count on a honeysuckle hating man standing in her way or the town of Lincoln Falls itself. Now everything she thought she ever wanted may not be her dream at all.

Eric Mason and his daughter have quietly lived next door to Jessica’s parents. That all changes when he meets Jessica. She is overly dramatic and the most annoying person he’s ever met. Yet, he can’t get her off his mind.

Will they find a new dream together?
