#MFRWhooks- What’s lurking this Halloween??

Happy Wednesday and thanks for stopping by! I hope you are enjoying this weeks logo book hooks

This week, I’m doing a cover reveal as well as the hook…I’m sooooo excited about the cover…I love it!!! A story is a like an author’s child and the cover is the really cute outfit you dress them in. In my case it’s the slightly sexy and dark outfit.

I’ll stop rambling…

Here’s a sneak before the hook…

teaser 1


Lila Maxwell is coaxed into attending All Treats, a Halloween speed dating event by her best friend. Instead of the soul mate promised one Halloween ghoul after another appears at her door until Cowboy Bill.
Jax Carlson has spent the last year focusing all of his attention on starting his own business. Hiring Lila Maxell over the Internet as his project manager was the final piece to his prefect plan. Set to open for business in three days, Jax plans on spending a couple of days on his boat relaxing. However, his friend Erik has a different idea – a speed dating Halloween party.
Jax has spent the night plotting the best revenge possible for Erik until Sally opens the door. The woman dressed in the pale lavender Harem costume ignites a fire that Jax thought was impossible without the aid of his formulated dating list.
After a night of mind blowing sex, Lila sneaks out before they exchange real names believing it was no more than a one-night stand.
Lila’s first day is full of surprises, the biggest being Cowboy Bill is actually her new boss, Jax Carlson. She thinks keeping her hormones in check while convincing Jax that love doesn’t follow a formula is complication enough until she learns the participants of the All Treats speed dating event are being killed.
AND NOW….the cover

It’s it great???? Michelle at WLF Book Promotions did it.
AND the hook….

Walking into her bedroom, Lila froze mid-stride. On her bed was a knife coated with blood and small plastic number five. The glass slipped from her hand and fell to the floor, spraying her foot and leg with red wine.


It will be available for pre-order September 26th and live on October 16.

Motivational Monday

Career vs Hobby. This is something I’ve swayed back and forth on concerning my writing. First, of I do view my writing as a career of sorts (I’m diligent about the quality of work I turn out and calling myself a writer aspects of writing) but give it hobby status in my life scale. Meaning the no-longer day job came first. Then the general household ‘things’ – evicting dust bunnies, slaying the laundry monster, etc.

Now as far as hobbies went, writing was my first priority. BUT it had a priority of a hobby. No that day job no longer exists; I have to make a decision. Do I move writing to that slot? More important can I? Can I make myself write even when the laundry monster’s roars are shaking the house?
When the deadline on the call for the WIP I’m working on can I push all other things aside and push through? Before I had the
‘I’ll sub it somewhere else’ approach.

So why this deep probing for this Motivational Monday? I took some GREAT classes – on marketing, creating a career plan, on body language, etc – this weekend at the MFRW’s summer camp. And one thought kept circling back, “when will I have time?” I realized that if I’m going to move my writing up to the day job slot, I need to give it that priority.
Sooo my question is for those of my fellow writers, how do you shove aside the ‘hobby’ status and make it a ‘career’? How did you get the fam on board?
