Buy the Holiday Romance Today!

I love the holidays!

The lights have an extra glow against the pure white snow. The familiar croons and swoons of the music is growing on me, even though I hated it as a kid. I enjoy Christmas-themed shows, love the garlands wrapped around banisters, and I still am waiting for that kiss under the mistletoe.

The holidays will be spent relaxing and laughing with family.

But in the meantime, I have spent my days trying to get my new story out. Would you believe spending eleven straight hours on a wooden chair is possible? I do. I’ve done it and man is it a pain. I always forget how much work goes into publishing even though this is my fifth book.

I released my newest book today. It’s the first in the Finding Love series, titled, “A Boyfriend Before Christmas.”

Rachel McDaniel is the main character, just as she is in the second title in the Finding Love series, “Life, Love and the Pursuit of Chocolate.”

I didn’t realize how much I enjoy writing about her, nor how much I like her character.

It’s my hope others like her as well.

So as the snow piles up and the hot chocolate continues to pour, please buy the newest book. It’s a great fire-side read.

Product Description:

A Boyfriend Before Christmas

Rachel McDaniel loves being a single, 29-year-old co-owner of a chocolate shop. But when Rachel’s aging mentor, Mama Bird unexpectedly decides the workaholic youngster needs a boyfriend before Christmas, Rachel must decide what she really wants in life: a man or her thriving career.

The quest for love will send her into hilarious situations. In the end, Rachel will find out if it is her time to love or if she will have to wait.

Told with humor and compassion, this book will make you laugh and cry.

You can buy “A Boyfriend Before Christmas” on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

You can also buy the second book in the Finding Love Series, “Life, Love and the Pursuit of Chocolate” on Amazon.

Most people who don’t know me perceive me as quiet, shy and not very interesting.

But there is more to me than the handsome and mysterious stranger…oh wait, this isn’t a book. Lol. Anyway, what I meant to say is that I can be funny and outgoing, but still, not very interesting.

To show how shocking it can be for the uninitiated to see my other side, I once gave a public speech for an old job. I had the audience rolling with laughter. This is nothing new to me as I’ve given a lot of speeches before. I’m not saying I’m good, just that i can get a laugh or two when I don’t bomb.

One of my coworkers came up to me afterward and asked, “Who are you?” I shrugged and asked what she meant. She then went on to say that I couldn’t be me because the unassuming person she knew at the office was nothing like the one she had just seen.

Go figure.

The different sides to a person can really surprise someone.

I just did the same thing with my new release, “Not Tonight Dear, My Vagina’s Asleep.”

My other books are romantic and hopefully poignant. I’ve had people cry while reading them and tell me they are going to read them at least once a year.

“Not Tonight Dear, My Vagina’s Asleep” changes things. They show the humorous and crazy side of my writing. Or at the very least, the goofy characters that come out when I write a book.

There is bad and shocking language. The word penis is mentioned and even, as you can guess by the title, a vagina. But it is in no way porn or even a bodice-ripping romance.

Sometimes I wonder if the readers that enjoyed the softer side will make the jump to the hard side. (Okay, I blushed when I wrote that.) It’s not for everybody, I get that, but I hope enough give it a chance.

Here is information on the book.

Nakayla Fraser, a 23-year-old, self-absorbed and temperamental model has a skyrocketing career and a handsome boyfriend. Her biggest concern is her arch-nemesis, sweet and gentle, Janet Birchman, an up-and-coming model.

When Nakayla and Janet are set to take part in a celebrity auction to raise money for the Tiny Scouts, Nakayla falls hard for beautiful and charming Jonathan Salazar. There is only one problem. At the auction Jonathan chooses Janet.

To nab him, Nakayla will deploy everything in her all-is-fair-in-love-and-war arsenal. But in the end, she may have to become everything she is not: loveable, caring and nice.

The ebook can be bought on Barnes and Noble and Amazon.

My book, “The Path Home” is live. It is the second book I wrote, but for some reason, it was always one of my favorite. Oh, I know authors aren’t supposed to have favorite books, but just like parents don’t have favorite kids, all parents know the tiny secret that they do. But we’ll keep that secret safe for now.

“The Path Home” has always had a special place in my heart and I am not sure why. There was nothing spectacular going on with my life when I wrote it and epiphanies were all dried up when I hit the save button. I don’t even remember going out to eat to celebrate that I had finished writing it.

But I love it all the same.

Now it’s out there. Just as a parent has to let their kid out of the safety of the house and push them in to kindergarten, so now, “The Path Home” is out there for strangers to pick on, laugh at, but hopefully most will love it. I have no control over that. I just did the best I could and now I hope that it will succeed in the world.

This isn’t a post where I beg you to buy my book, although of course, I hope you do. It is more just sharing  how much I care about it and how I hope you enjoy it.

Thank you to all my supporters.

“The Path Home” Description:

A chance encounter at a bookstore…the start of a sweet love story.

When Mr. Dominguez runs into Antoinette at their beachside community bookstore, the connection between them is instantaneous and unmistakable. They seem to be made for each other. There is just one problem.

He is a priest, and she doesn’t know.

Father Dominguez must decide if his true path is with Antoinette, or with the God he has always been devoted to. And he must do it soon, before he breaks not only his vows, but also Antoinette’s heart.

Buy it on Amazon. Buy it at Barnes and Noble.

But first, Tim is going to share a funny story from his life:
A couple of years ago, I visited a friend in San Diego.

I had a chance to scratch two of those tickets and was excited to find out that one of them won $10,000. For the next few minutes, (more…)

A true and funny story from Author RW Bennett’s life:
The Tattered Cover in Denver is one of the best and most famous independent bookstores in all of America. In the early 80’s, it was located in the Cherry Creek area, near where I worked as a young CPA. I used to browse there frequently over my lunch hour or after work. The store filled all six stories of a building, and book displays were merchandized on the landings between floors. One day, wearing a new but inexpensive CPA suit, I was intently reading a book featured on one of the landings. I turned the page, and a woman next to me jumped, startled, (more…)

A true and funny story from Author Sheila Horgan’s life:
Being a first time author, I sent off my first book to a number of people.  An aunt.  My best friend.  A niece.  People I trusted to give me an honest opinion.  I waited nervously for them to respond.  My BFF called and said ‘Oh my God, when did all this happen?  Why didn’t you tell me?’  I was confused.  ‘What?’  She was annoyed, ‘When the guys broke into your house.  Hello?  You never told me that!’  (more…)
