Excerpt From My Current WIP

This is from my current WIP, Paranormal Operations, Inc- Taylor.

Taylor’s eyes snapped to a stunning man leaning against a car. She felt a knot of heat spread through her body as she took in his rugged good looks. His hair was blond and somewhat long, almost covering the pointed tips of his ears. Emerald green eyes that crinkled at the corners, blond brows arched as he gazed back at her. His nose was straight, with a slight bump. Taylor’s eyes dropped to his mouth, his lips full, and a smile highlighting a dimpled, firm chin. The man was tall, with well-muscled arms crossed. They were crossed over a chest that was covered in a tight black t-shirt with the word “Tapout” in faded white across the front.

Her eye’s dropped lower, taking in the well-worn jeans he wore. Noticing how they molded to his thighs. Taylor took a long, appraising look at the impressive bulge below his belt, before her eyes slide further down, seeing his legs crossed, his feet encased in boots.

“See something you like, darlin’?” he drawled. As if seeing this gorgeous man wasn’t enough to turn a woman’s whole body to jelly. His low, husky voice made her pantie’s wet . Taylor snapped her eyes to his and made a show of slowly looking up and down his body again before her eyes met his again.

“And if I do?” she asked, her voice sounding low.

The man laughed then, “All you have you have to do is ask, Ms. Connor”.

Welcome to Mistletoe, North Pole. A small town hidden away at the top of the world where the summers are short, and the winters are long. And Christmas is what the town does best.

Jamie Winters’s life was almost about perfect. Growing up as part of a loving family living in the lush green of the Pacific Northwest, she had her life planned out. Until one night before Christmas, fate stepped and took everyone she loved away from her. Years later she finds herself in Mistletoe, working as a waitress at Rudy’s Diner alongside her best friend, Kandy. Jamie’s not looking for love, but in a place like Mistletoe, you never know what you’ll find all wrapped up with a bow.

Christen Kringle never expected to find his mate in Mistletoe. Having been born and raised in the small town, everyone was like family. Then one night after work he meets his crew at Rudy’s. One look at the curvy brunette outsider with the dark chocolate eyes and he knew she was his. And when she touched him? His body blazed to life like the Aurora Borealis. It was fate that brought her into his life. The same fate had found mates all the men in the Kringle line.

But a menace is creeping into Mistletoe. One that not only threatens Chris and Jamie, but could end Christmas worldwide.

And So A New Year Begins

From Freeing My Muse

Happy 2017 everyone! Lets hope it’s not as turbulent as 2016 turned out to be.

I took two weeks off from work to get a few chapters done on book 1 of my Paranormal Operations, Inc manuscript. That didn’t work out as I planned it would. A lot of distractions popped up each day, even through I was home alone (except for the cats and they just ignored me!) the first week. And second week, well, my sweet hubby was home so that was a MAJOR distraction (in all kinds of very good ways!). So in the end I ended up with half a chapter done (about 900 words). Oh well…I’m back at work now and can get back to writing at lunch.

I got my first Amazon review on Santa Baby and it was a 4 ****! Then I got a second one and this one wasn’t as good…

Woot!

The Adventures of the Everyday Fangirl is happy to present this excerpt from Santa Baby by Colleen Keehne.

img_0187Bruce Springsteen’s gravelly voice singing about Santa Claus coming to town streamed from the jukebox in one corner of the diner. Multicolored twinkling lights covered the long bar near the back, coloring the glasses of beer and drinks that lined it. The tree at the far end of the bar was seven feet of old fashioned, symmetrical White Spruce. The colors of the dancing lights reflected in the shiny ornaments and tinsel that hung from its full branches. A silver star tree topper gave the tree a finished look. Patrons sat scattered among the tables and along the bar, eating or nursing drinks as they chatted. Rudy’s Diner was the only place to gather in the small but bustling town of Mistletoe, North Pole.
Bruce’s voice faded away, replaced by Elvis Presley…

You’re not sticking it to the man.

Future Fairytales

Web piracy. You know, we usually blame the pirates for the whole problem, but, as in any capitalist system, the thieves are merely filing the void. The real problem is that there is a market for free books that weren’t paid for.

As readers who download without paying for a book, aka. Stealing, it’s important to note that the whole problem exists solely to feed your appetite, your entitlement. But, corporate profits! But Amazon is a monster! But, the man!

But, no. You are stealing from an author. A person who sits down every day pouring their heart and soul into a manuscript for months. Authors do this for many, many reasons, but a vast majority of us do it in pursuit of the dream that we should be able to do this all the time. We want to write, but we also need to eat.

I assume you have…
