This and that part 10

MOOD STATUS: "Excited". Looking forward to going out to dinner--with no kids! :)

Thanks to everyone who stopped by Writer Routine Wednesday to hear about Camy Tang's new book and her writing routine!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
And now for the this and the that...

First up:

My friend Clarissa Yip has a new book just released by Decadent Publishing called LOVE BY AUCTION.

Here's a little bit about it:

Intent on leaving the Date for Charity Auction, billionaire Mark Passmore vows not to bid, until he sees the gorgeous blond strut across the stage. Need overwhelms his senses and he has to have her.

With an etiquette drill sergeant and society snob for a mother, Rebecca Hathaway a.k.a Ice Princess accepts an extraordinary dare—one that lands her in the arms of her ex, except he doesn’t know it’s her.

After an explosive passionate night with Mark, Rebecca sneaks back to her mundane life of tea parties and book clubs. But she knows she’ll never be the same again.

Although he’s ended their relationship three years ago, Mark has never stopped loving Rebecca. When he learns the truth of Rebecca’s role in the action, will he forgive her for her betrayal or walk away again?

CONGRATS, Clarissa!

And check out my other friend's (Stephanie Taylor) new book trailer for her recent release DOUBTING THOMAS. She did a fabulous job with it!
