I interrupt this insane news day to say I have two deleted scenes from “The Fourth Estate” (from Rogue Affair) that I’ll be sending to my mailing list next week. They’re both from Drew’s POV: one is the coffee meeting (except his perspective) and the other involves him watching Brynn on the news. If I do say so myself, they’re pretty cute.
So, if you want to read them, make sure you’re signed up!
ETA: if you missed them, they’re here, but consider signing up so that this awesome stuff goes straight into your inbox.
It’s the anniversary of the 2016 presidential election and also release day for Rogue Affair. It’s a collection of ten political resistance romances featuring me and Tamsen Parker, Ainsley Booth, Olivia Dade, Kris Ripper, Amy Jo Cousins, Adriana Anders, Kelly Maher, Stacey Agdern, and Jane Lee Blair.
I am crazy proud of my novelette, “The Fourth Estate.” It’s about two reporters who work for competing papers fighting over stories about White House corruption and, oh, falling in love. Brynn and Drew’s enemies to lovers, banter-y relationship was so fun to write. If you’ve been enjoying all those 5 p.m. breaking news stories–this little boomlet of resurgent journalism–this book is for you. It’s my favorite contemporary project since Party Lines. If you need more convincing Heroes and Heartbreakers had ten exclusive excerpts here.
You can pick it up at fine ebook retailers, including Amazon, iBooks, B&N, Kobo, and Google Play or add it to your Goodreads shelves. If you want a behind-the-scenes peek, the inspiration board for “The Fourth Estate” is on Pinterest.
Also, I have a deleted scene and an alternative POV scene. You don’t know it yet–because you haven’t read Rogue Affair–but you might need these. I’ll be sending them out in my newsletter in a month or so. So sign up now if you haven’t.
You can see the cover for Rogue Affair at USA Today’s Happy Ever After blog, and it’s gorgeous! The book will drop three weeks from today, on November 8, 2017.
Here’s the blurb for mine:
Reporter Drew Orlov wants to write about the corrupt president hurting regular Americans, but readers only care about the bombshells penned by his rival Brynn Allen. When he goes after Brynn’s high-level source, though, he finds himself snagged on more complicated—and personal—feelings. Brynn’s been working her tail off and doesn’t have time for Drew, even if he does look good when he smolders, and they’re soon locked in a tussle for the truth with their hearts on the line.
It is a very, very me story, and I hope you’ll love it.
As with Rogue Desire, Rogue Affair is 99 cents to preorder, and the price will rise after release week. You can get it at all the cool retailers, including Amazon, B&N, Kobo, and Google Play and you can add it to your Goodreads shelves (it’ll be available at iBooks soon).
ETA: I added an excerpt from “The Fourth Estate” and FAQ here.
Binge on Books is doing a month-long Sounds Like Halloween celebration of scary stories, and I recorded myself reading the mission sequence from Earth Bound for it. It’s more suspenseful than spooky–and obviously very spoiler-y if you haven’t read the book!–but you can listen to it here.
Also, I talked to Rachel Kramer Bussel from Salon for an article on resistance romance. A lot of my favorite authors are quoted and are name checked, so it was incredibly cool to be included.
Finally, I started an author newsletter. I promise I won’t send too many of these, but if you want to keep up with my new releases and sales, you can sign up here.
