What-the-Earl-WantsWhat the Earl Wants by Tabetha Waite

A missing heirloom. A gambled away inheritance. These are just some of the elements of Tabetha Waite’s rolicking historical romance. The writer calls herself “a dreamer who was born just 200 years too late,” and we can see why: she has cooked up quite the riveting story. In this snippet from the novel, the main heroine, Miss Athena Hawthorne, has just found that nothing is left of her father’s estate, when she runs into a handsome stranger:

“Athena looked up, prepared to give the individual a proper set down for nearly running her over, but the retort instantly faltered when her gaze caught the expensive flash of a maroon, superfine coat of quality. Not only was that enough to give her pause, but the man above her was absolutely enormous! Tall and broad shouldered with a three layered greatcoat and top hat that only enhanced his size, his face was shadowed, but she could discern his intent stare as it lit on her—could feel it upon her skin. And when he spoke, it was with a rich, smooth timbre. ‘My apologies, miss. I’m afraid I was in a rush and didn’t see you.’”

Sometimes-MomentsSometimes Moments by Len Webster

The self-proclaimed “romance-loving Melburnian” has written a touching contemporary love story that’s worth a blissful afternoon of relaxation. One day Peyton Spencer wakes up to find that the boy who she believed was “the one” is about to leave town—and her—forever. Now, years later, he walks back into her life without a care in the world. She would never allow him her heart’s redemption. Could she? In the following passage, Peyton has just learned the devastating news:

“‘That’s it, you’re just up and moving to the city. That’s all it took. Two days and you changed your mind,’ she cried. She told him she loved him. He never said it back but he never pushed her away. That night they went to the lake. She gave him her innocence and told him that she loved him. Two days later, and he was leaving.”

48 HOURS TILL PUBLICATION

With forty-eight hours to go before I published my third romance novel, SOMETIMES MOMENTS, I found myself considerably overwhelmed. To the point where I wanted to throw up. Not like a little. Like I got wasted just before 10PM on New Year’s Eve and ended up in a disgusting and highly unlady-like puking fest.

True story?

You’ll never know.

When it comes to publishing, time has been both my friend and my enemy:

Friend: I am excited that all the work I put into writing and editing SOMETIMES MOMENTS would finally result in a book.

Enemy: I still have a million things to do, but not enough time before the release to do them.

Damn, time.

WHAT I STILL HAD TO DO:

Create promotional pictures and keep a careful eye on my pre-order sales.

I also had to tell my brain to stop overthinking “No one will like it!” thoughts and replay some “Someone will love SOMETIMES MOMENTS!” ones in my mind before I fell asleep. Continue reading
