Blurb:

You are cordially invited to a wedding…

The date has been picked; the planning has begun. All that’s needed now is a groom.

Angela never saw herself asking a complete stranger to marry her, but with her wedding drawing closer, she’s left with little choice. The arrangement is simple. Convince her parents they’re head over heels for each other, get married, and then go their separate ways.

But she didn’t anticipate her heart having plans of its own.

Tristan thought he was meeting her for their first date, but ends up getting a marriage proposal instead. His past makes it easy to understand why Angela needs a fake fiancé. And how hard could it be to go along with her charade anyway?

But his feelings never agreed to play by the rules.

Neither of them considered what would happen when faking it stopped being enough. What do you do when you start falling for the person you’re marrying?

Happy reading.

Goodbye 2019

I stayed up into 2020, working on my current book, not even knowing it was midnight until I heard the fireworks going off outside my window. But here we are, a new decade. And I’m so excited to see what this year, and decade, brings.

But as for 2019, well:

I published three books.

Wrote eight books, 560,422 words, give or take. (Definitely more give lol)

Got much better at making edits.

Designed all the covers for my books in the foreseeable future.

And when I consider the fact that I somehow got all this done with a husband and five kids and everything else going on in my life, I definitely pat myself on the back. Because some months I wrote less words than others and I’d start to feel like I’m wasn’t doing enough, wasn’t working hard enough. I felt bad when I took a day off, when I read books and told myself if I have time for that, then I had time to work on my own. Gonna try and do better with that this year. Letting myself feel okay about taking the time away from writing when I need to. But in other ways, writing is my therapy. Writing is what makes my day, makes me happy and relaxed, so it’s a slippery, weird slope.

Anywho, in 2020 I plan to release 4 books, 3 contemporary romances and a fantasy romance, if all goes according to plan. Still working on book #15, about half way through, and just got done editing book #6 last night.

And bonus for last night, to leave 2019 on a super high note, Be My Light made it onto a reader I absolutely love’s fav reads list. So seeing that really just made my night, and really I’m still flying high off that today.

Hope everyone has a wonderful year and goes for what makes them happy.

Write soon. Bye.

Ari.

A break…Maybe

Book #12 is finished. It ended up being a heck of a lot longer than I thought it would. It seemed like every time I thought I was almost done, another idea would pop into my head. There’s a lot in this book that if someone looked at my google history, would look very suspicious. It’s also the last book in a series I’ve written about people from the same town. No more characters are calling to me from it, so I think this will be the last. Now to find a cover and some pictures for edits for it.

Speaking of… Edits. I wish I knew more about them for my first three books. I have so much fun looking for pictures to use for them now. Pictures I wouldn’t use for a cover, but go along so well with the book.

I’m taking a break until the kids go back to school because man, do they make writing extra hard. So that’s about a week and a half to finish plotting other books, get book #4 to the editor, and work on that book’s cover a little more. The picture I chose for it is so, so nice. Or, at least I think so.

Looking forward to getting back to work though because the days feel weird without sitting with my laptop for a few hours.

Be My Light, All The Pieces Of Me, and Just Fake It are available for purchase now, or read them for free with Kindle Unlimited.

Fantasy In The Works

Okay, so book 3 is in it’s third round of edits and I’m looking at publishing it in mid-July. I’ve got the cover and title (finally) figured out. It’s a fake marriage romance and I am loving it more and more everytime I re-read it.

I’m plotting out book 11, which will be based off a character from book 10. Nervous to be writing a series, as that’s a lot of timelines and stories to match up. But very, very excited. The character just kept talking to me, so I figured I should listen, right? Plus the guy in book 10 is from book 7, so AHHH! Now to figure out a series name.

But the biggest news, for me anyway, is that I’m working on a fantasy book. I’m already 75k done with it and have another 7 or 8 (long) chapters to go. I have fallen in love with this book. Building my own world, figuring out the names, and kingdoms, what makes them different and alike. It’s all been very fun. I have been looking for the cover ever since I wrote what the main characters will look like, but haven’t been all that successful in finding anything pre-made. So if anyone knows some great illustrators, let me know.

That’s all for now. I’ll post when book 3 is available for pre-order. And I’ll even tell you guys the title now. *whispers* Just Fake It *shh*

Another Book Down

Book #8 is finished!!!!! If anyone had ever told me I’d enjoyed writing a love triangle so much, I would’ve thought they were lying, but… I loved it. Being able to write two guys and show the differences between them, the differences in the way the heroine felt for them and how they treated her. And of course, who she chose in the end.

In other news, All The Pieces of You have been out for a week and doing really well. I’m getting ready to send book #3 (fake marriage romance) over to the editor in the hopes of publishing that one in June. If only I could choose a title for it. I’m stuck between three that I like.

I’m almost done with book #9. I was working on 8 and 9 at the same time, so I think I have about two chapters left for that one. That one is an enemies to lover romance.

Write soon. Bye.

Wanna know a secret?

Be My Light will be on sale for $0.99 on 11/15-11/16 to celebrate the one month anniversary of it’s release. If you’ve been waiting to buy it, that will be your chance to get it at a lower price. I’ll post again on that day as a reminder.

In other news, I finished book #5 today. Yay! I already have a title for it and a blurb, but I’ll probably do quite a bit of revising on the blurb. I just wanted to write a rough draft of it while the story was still fresh in my mind.

Now that I’ll be taking a little break from writing (or at least trying to hehe), I’ll be doing a read through of book #2 (single dad romance) in preparation of it going to the editor to start on the road to publishing it. I finally found a cover for it and just need to work on the blurb for it now.

I have book #6 all plotted out and although I’m inching to start it, I’m trying to give myself a little break. But I also upped my daily writing goal as of 11/1, which in turn upped my monthly writing goal to 35k, so I can’t take too much of a break or I won’t meet it.

Write soon. Bye.

Another Ending and New Beginnings

I’ve finished book 3, a fake fiance romance. I have yet to figure out a title for it, but I’m so happy with the way it turned out. Once again, I had to convince myself that any other book I write doesn’t have to be as long as book 1. When the story is done, it’s done.

I finally found a cover for book 2, the singe dad romance. I was really heartbroken when the covered I was dying for got sold, but the new one is beautiful and I’m fits the title better anyway.

Just a reminder that Be My Light is up for pre-order and going live on Oct. 15th. Here’s the link.

I’ve started book 4 and have about 17k words written for that one so far, but because the words weren’t coming to me as naturally as they have with the other books, I switched it up and started book 5 last night. So far, I have over 1,800 words written for that one. I think I’ll stick with this one and go back to book 4 later. We’ll see.

Write soon. Bye.
