I’m thrilled to be here to share my newest release, DEMONICALLY TEMPTED. So, I’ve been asked, “If you could spend 24 hours as one of your characters, who would you pick?” My answer, Tess Jennings, and there are two very good reasons.
First, Tess has the ability to talk with ghosts. Anyone who knows me knows that I’m a scaredy-cat where it comes to anything that goes bump in the night, but if I had the chance to be Tess for one day then I’d jump on it. I agree with her that it’d be slightly annoying if ghosts were bugging me all the time. But if I only had to experience it for one day, it’d be pretty cool.
So, what would I do with such an ability? Well, first I’d walk around just to see where ghosts are. How interesting would be that be? I think the coolest thing would be if they were from a different time period. It’d be neat to see their clothing and hairstyles, even how they talked. And it would be amusing to see ghosts just walking about when everyone else is none the wiser. Also, I’d definitely make a trip to the homes where my parents grew up in, just in case someone I knew was at one of them.
Next, I’d of course try and help someone if I could. Not really sure I would be as efficient as Tess because there would be no way I would admit to anyone that I could see ghosts. I suspect, my family included, would think I was nutty. But it would be nice to help someone who is stuck cross over.
The other reason I’d like to be Tess is for Kipp McGowen! For those who haven’t read Tess’s story, Kipp is her ghost lover. And well, I wouldn’t mind one bit if his attention was turned on to me. However, I would find it very frustrating if I had that hunk of man haunting me and couldn’t actually touch him. Really, I don’t know how Tess does it.
So, yes if I could be Tess for one day I would be without hesitation! That being said, Tess is really put through the emotional ringer so I’m perfectly happy to only be her for a little while. Poor woman has gone through hell and back…literally!
Big thanks to Juliana Haygert for letting me stop by today!!
Tess Jennings, now a member of the Memphis Police Department, is on her first cold case. The suspected suicide of Lizbeth Knapp ten years ago isn’t a theory her family accepts—they believe she was murdered.
But the case is only one of Tess’s worries. Ghosts are talking, and word of her abilities rapidly spreads. A dark ghost is terrifying the spirits of Memphis, and she must force the entity to cross over.
Tess doesn’t have to do this alone. Not only does she have her ghost-lover, Kipp McGowen, but the department has brought in a medium. Dane Wolfe might answer all her questions, but he also brings a world of trouble. Will Tess finally have all she’s ever wanted, or will everything she’s vowed to protect be ripped away?

So, if you don’t see me online, if I’m not on Twitter, if I’m not answering emails right away, if I’m not commenting on your blog, is because I’m deep in my writing cave.
If whatever you have to say to me is urgent, then send me an email (or use the contact form on this website) and write URGENT on the subject. It’ll get my attention ;)
I’ll be online again soon, I promise.

Hello! First #ROW80 check-in of the round!
My goals for the past week:
- Write: Not sure how much I’ll be able to accomplish with my cousin here and with a holiday, but I’ll try to write every weekday! Wrote about 2000 words on Mon and Tue, then done nothing Wed and Thu, and worked on outline and character’s GMC on Friday. Usually, I don’t write during weekends, but I wrote 3000 words on Sat, and worked a bit more on outline.
- FastDraft starts Saturday (7th) but I’m sure I’ll only be able to join the ranks on July 10th, after my cousin is gone. Waiting for the cousin to go ;)
- Read: Finish the book I’m reading and start another. I was on a roll and finished three!
- Social media: blog at least once (besides check-in), and hop on Twitter a couple of times each day. Done.
- Exercise: twice at least (Tuesday and Thursday). Done.
Not bad, but not good either, but I know I couldn’t have done much better with my cousin here.
And here are the goals I want to accomplish this week:
- Write: see below.
- FastDraft: write all afternoon from 12:30 to 5pm (from Tue to Fri) and get LOTS of words down.
- Read: read my CP’s manuscript and book #36 (goodreads challenge).
- Social Media: blog at least once (besides check-in) and hop on Twitter whenever I have a free time.
- Exercise: 3x at least.
Don’t forget to check the other ROWers! Have a great week everyone!
Today, at NA Alley, I’m talking about pitches, because tomorrow we’ll be hosting a critique session there that will serve as a training session for the awesome contest YAtopia will host on their blog on July 10th. They’ll be accepting 35-words pitches of New Adult manuscripts and agent Sara Megibow from Nelson Literary Agency and editor Heather Howland from Entangled Publishing will be choosing the winners!
The critique session tomorrow will have the participation of lovely New Adult author Lynn Rush. I hope to see you there!
