As a thank you in advance for supporting JUST ONE KISS, read on for the first EVER revealed excerpt from Kelsey and Ethan’s story.

Exclusive Excerpt:

 

“Well, I’ll be damned, Kelsey Brian showed up to work before me. Now I’ve seen it all.” Logan struts into the bar like he owns the place and lets out a low whistle. “To what do we owe the pleasure?”

            I roll my eyes, but Sara just stands there with a silly smile on her face. Logan has one of those personalities that you can’t help but love. Just the tone of his voice and his own smile can improve a girl’s mood in less than a second. Not to mention his shaggy, dark blonde hair, blue eyes, and athletic build. He would be a catch in more ways than one. I think Sara is finally figuring it out.

            “It’s not what, it’s who,” Sara coos. Warmth creeps up my neck and into my cheeks. Logan’s eyes go wide.

            “Dude, are you serious? Someone has finally cracked the ‘I hate boys’ phase we thought would last forever.”

            “It’s not a phase,” I interrupt. “I just find it hard to trust someone now.”

            Sara’s face lights up as she slowly nods her head up and down. “And stop calling us dudes.” She laughs, pointing at Logan.

            “Wait a minute…does this have anything to do with Ethan?” Logan suggests, folding his arms in front of him.

            “Oh, I bet it does,” Sarah says.

            Logan reaches his arm over the counter, his palm flat, and Sara gives him a high five. It’s like I’m not even here. How does Logan know about Ethan anyway? I just found out yesterday.

            “He called me this morning, wanted to get together but something came up, said he needed a rain check.” Logan shares this piece of information as he joins us behind the bar. I continue with my side work and listen to them at the same time.

            “Yeah, well, it better be for something good because he said he was going to be late.”

            He probably went to change his shirt, but I’d be okay with him not changing his shirt and just forgetting about it altogether.

            “Hello? Earth to Kelsey!”

            I look up from—wait. Was I just staring at the sink water this whole time?

            “What’s your deal?” Sara asks.

            “She knows something,” Logan answers.

            They both study me with their full attention. I crack under the pressure. It only took two seconds, but it’s always hard to keep things from Sara. Then you add Logan, and there’s no hope. They make a strong team.

            “Alright, so I may have seen Ethan once or twice since yesterday.” That sounds good enough. I turn with the intention of filling the sink at the other end of the bar, but Sara grabs my arm. I keep my eyes pinned to the floor.

            “And…?”

            “And…I might know why he’s late?”

            “Is that a question?”

            My face wrinkles up. I want to avoid this whole conversation. Treat it just like a Band-Aid, Kelsey. One quick pull and it’s over.

            “I may have kicked him in the face, given him black eyes, hit him with my car door, and burned him with coffee right before I got here.” I shrug. “Hence no coffee.”

 

A Little Piece About Me

AuthorSince I’m a new author and most people don’t know who I am, I thought I would share a little piece of me with you. Enjoy!

I didn’t always want to write books. There are a few reasons why I decided to pursue this new chapter of my life and why I have chosen the genre I have.

My dream career changed multiple times while I was growing up – yes I’m only 26, but the last few years were the years I learned the most about myself.

I was always a reader, but one day I chose a book that introduced me to entirely new genre. The characters were between the ages of 18 and 25. As I read, I noticed that a lot of the everyday struggles these characters were going through matched me and my life at the time. So I read another book, and another, then I did some research on the genre. This was how I was introduced to the genre of New Adult and why I’ve chosen to write it.

New Adult, to me, is one of the most exciting times of a person’s life. This is the age where you finally branch out to become your own person. Mistakes are made and every day you learn something new. 

Deciding to write NA Romance was even easier decision. There are some people out there who don’t care, but for the rest of us, we want to experience love. We want to be a part of it. We want to give it away and accept it. We want to find that one person who wants to declare their love for us to the entire world. Finding that love and keeping it – that’s a journey all on its own.  Everyone deserves a HEA.

That’s all! Hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend.

My First RT15 – AKA Romance Times Convention 2015

RTLast week, I attended my first writing convention for romance writers. The entire event went beyond the expectations I had when I arrived. I met both aspiring and published authors. I met indie, traditional, and hybrid authors. I met bloggers, readers, and the people who work behind the scenes to help authors make this a career. All of these people, whether they know it or not, have impacted my life and the way I will approach my writing moving forward.

Each day there was something new and exciting for me to learn. In high school and even in college, I dreaded going to glass. I didn’t want to sit there for an hour listening to someone talk. But at the convention, I couldn’t wait to get to the next class to hear what those authors had to say. I can honestly admit that each and every panel I attended has helped me one way or another.

Like most book lovers, I was also thrilled with the idea that I was about to meet some of my favorite authors. I had this plan – I was going to get a photo with each of the authors whose writing inspired me to write. A few authors I had no problem asking, but one particular author, my hands shook the entire time. I couldn’t tell you why that happened – everyone attending the convention was always happy to take photos and sign books.

Overall, the experience was one I’ll never forget. The lines are definitely something I will never ever forget. Hence, all the selfies last week 🙂
