AllAuthor contest

(and other news)

CHANGED has made it into round 2 of the AllAuthor cover contest! I get so many compliments on this cover, and absolutely love it. No, it’s not a sexy man-chest, but it fits Kate and Quinn’s story so perfectly. It was designed by Marisa at Cover Me Darling.

If you would give me a vote, I’d totally be OK with that!

If you liked the cover of my book,
Changed: (New Adult Romance), please vote for it for the Cover of the Month contest on AllAuthor.com!

In the other news part of this random update, the Regency story I’ve been sporadically working on is now a finalist in the NOLA Stars Suzannah Contest! I’m excited to see what 2019 has in store. Good luck to the other finalists!

My newsletter will be coming out tomorrow. There will be all kinds of goodies in there, like book news (the best kind of news there is!), giveaways, freebies, and the next chapter of Permanent Virgin. So make sure you sign up! It’s going to be epic!

Past chapters available under the Sydney and Jett section of this website. If you are signed up for my newsletter you should have the password.


In case this is the first time you’re stopping in, maybe you don’t know that Changed is available in Kindle Unlimited! And because the cover is so pretty, here it is again. AND, if you click it, then that takes you to Amazon and you can grab your copy in KU. Better get it before time runs out. Changed will be leaving KU in January 2019.

If you prefer a paperback, head on over to my Facebook Author Page or Facebook Reader Group and enter to win a signed copy!

She’s here! If you haven’t signed up for my newsletter yet… well why the heck not? Part I of Sydney and Jett’s story is now available. Starting next week, I will post chapters to Wattpad, but after seeing the issues associated with piracy there, I will probably only post three or four chapters to the site. I should know… my published book, Changed, was posted to Wattpad only the day after release (without my consent). Actually, it kind of looked like scammers trying to get you to download it for free, so those 4 or 5 people who did so likely got a nasty virus.

Karma, right?

I have a Pinterest board for both stories if you’re interested to see what inspired me.

So what else am I working on?

Well, let’s see…

I have an ongoing Regency historical that I intend to get back to once I get Sydney & Jett a little more fleshed out. It just went through a critique process and needs an overhaul, but I am excited to get this one out as it’s the first in a series. There aren’t enough hours in the day for all the things I want to write. And read. That’s been a major distraction the last few months. I really should stop, but I just can’t seem to help myself.

That’s all for now. If you stop by for Sydney & Jett’s story, please let me know what you think!

Meet Sydney

 

I am going to take a moment and plug my newsletter. I haven’t done much with it lately. To be honest, the least favorite thing that I can think of doing is setting up an email sequence. But I’ve decided that between books (and WHO knows how long it will be before I can publish another one?) I am going to do a serial story within the newsletter. It will be done monthly, and I already have the story outline in my head. I have Part I & II written. Hopefully the rest of this week will be devoted to fleshing out the story, characters, etc., and getting it down on paper.

That is if I don’t have another meltdown.

I’m becoming prone to those.

I will also upload the story a chapter at a time to Wattpad. If you don’t know what Wattpad is, you can check them out here: Wattpad. The story will be free, but I will send the story out in my newsletter first, and a week later upload to Wattpad.

In other news, if you aren’t following me on Facebook, I have devoted my TS Murphy Author page to Weird Book Week for August 20-24. Every day a different book will be posted that I found weird, but that I loved. There are quite a few weird books that I like, but I managed to narrow it down to five.

Here is a blurb for my newsletter story, which I’m calling Permanent Virgin, because I think it’s fucking funny. Oh, did I mention there will be cursing, and the story is NSFW? I mean, I’ve already said Vagina in everyone’s email, so how bad can it get? Right?

Anyway…

***

Sydney Jamison is trouble, and she’s got a mean streak. Hence, her court-ordered anger management and counseling sessions that lead her to meet Jett Bonner, who is raising his little sister after the death of their parents.

Jett takes one look at Sydney and decides she’s the girl of his dreams. He’s oddly fascinated by her penchant for wearing clothing adorned with tempting, red cherries, to say nothing of those matching lips. But Sydney has no time for Jett. She’s been burned—scorched, really—by too many guys who say they can handle her kind of crazy only to bail when things get serious.

Only… things get serious, and there’s no sign that Jett is going anywhere. But is Sydney really ready for him to stay?

How is your August going? Is it hot where you are? We are averaging 100+ degree days here in North Louisiana. Every. Damn. Day. I know everyone is about to go bonkers for pumpkin-spice everything, boots, scarves, and go Full Fall Festival Mode. (Note: Never Go Full Fall Festival Mode. Ever). Around these parts that kind of stuff happens, but it’s not as fun. We can have those same 100 degree days in October sometimes. Wear shorts at Thanksgiving. Sometimes even Christmas.

If you haven’t heard yet, I released a book on August 1st. I have been feeling a little overwhelmed, so took a step back from the website and newsletter. Probably not the best time for me to have a meltdown, but with everything else going on then something had to give. I’m thinking about adding a story to my newsletter though, so be sure you sign up. It might be a little naughty. Or it might be a clean, wholesome, family friendly story you can read aloud in front of small children.

And if you believe that, you might want to get your own mental health check, because I’ve already told my family that Changed was the only “nice” book that I’ll write. It’s definitely not my normal writing style. I tempered my style so much that sometimes it felt like I lost my voice as a writer, but I still feel like it was a story that needed to be told.

I am currently seeking beta readers. I have a critique partner for a Regency Romance I am writing, and I so appreciate what editors do for me now. It is so hard to do! I got great feedback from both of mine, and hopefully I am giving valuable feedback in return. I’ve had a beta before, but never had the whole symbiosis thing going. I need some beta readers for a New Adult series I began last year. I plan on submitting the first part of Book 1 to a contest. I can’t decide which story to work on first, but am trying so hard to focus on the Regency story. But who knows! Maybe those Thornton brothers will win me over.

Also, I need authors and readers in my Facebook Group. I would like to build the group up so that we can do giveaways, and that authors and readers can interact.

Don’t forget to sign up for the newsletter if you want something nice! Or something naughty 😉
