Need a reason to smile from beginning to end of a book? Looking for a fun Christmassy love story with some… steam? Want a Romance that Hallmark (After Dark) would envy? Snowman has it all: a Hot Lumberjerk/Single Dad, Feisty Eight Year, Chiropractor-Addicted Best Friend, Town filled with Christmas Crackpots, Naughty Tingles in ALL the Wrong Places, The Dreaded Feels?

Snowman is a full-length standalone novel.

***

New York real estate developer, Summer Sloane, was just handed a career-changing assignment… persuade three small business owners in the middle of nowhere to sell their properties to make way for a condo complex.

Salivating at a juicy promotion, corner office, and impressing her hard-to-please father, she travels to wintry Arid Falls to dazzle the locals and get their signatures on the dotted line.

Little did she know she was stepping into a living, breathing Christmas town crammed with excessively cheerful, fruitcake-loving, over hair-gelled locals who are a few logs short of an open fire—a place even Hallmark would envy.

Her confidence is shaken when she meets charismatic lumberjerk, Nick Snow—the owner of a bait and tackle shop, guardian of a feisty eight-year-old, and her biggest obstacle.

With advice from her chiropractor-addicted best friend, Val… Summer ignores her growing affection for the town brimming with Christmas crackpots—and her undeniable attraction to the handsome, kindhearted Lumberjerk… who sends naughty tingles in all the wrong places.

Can Summer get her signatures and return home with her heart intact, or will the eccentric Christmas town and the man who gets her blood boiling and pulse racing change her mind?

~A little sweet, a little heat, a little offbeat~

Lace-up your snow boots… this is NOT a clean romance.

The Story Behind the Words

My fifth book, Snowman, comes out on November 12th.  This book has been in the works for a long time. I can’t wait to share it.

While the days tick by until Release Day, I thought I’d share how Snowman came to be.

The idea for Snowman came while binge-watching Hallmark Christmas movies. I mean, “binge-watching” with a capital B-I-N-G-E. How I love these movies. Truly. With all my heart, I do. Even after watching the same ones over and over again, I could never get enough of the feel-goodness I experienced with each wholesome story.

My husband and I sat on the couch and laughed and laughed as we witnessed the same actors in different roles over the span of several movies, leading us to wonder if Hallmark only employed six actors in total. (Note: I think they’ve expanded to ten). It became a game for us… connecting who dated who in previous stories and crossing over movies. (Sorta like Six Degrees… but you only need two).

Honestly, if it was real life… the scandals would be fabulous. I’d be all over that. No lie.

We watched it so much, the actors became our fake friends. It got to the point that we had nicknames for everyone… Donathon Darcy Darcy, Sebastian (the British Prince/Chocolatier/The Only Handsome Sexy-Accented Man in All of Europe), Hallmark Hunk, Scarecrow, The Always Best Friend, The Always Sage Advisor, the ‘Never Gonna Get the Lead Part’ Second Banana—you get it. 

Crossover dating scenes movie to movie were sometimes amusing, and sometimes they made you go “Hmm.” (Weren’t they brother and sister in last night’s movie?) There was a lot of boyfriend/girlfriend swapping between films.

And the jilted Ex always took a breakup remarkably well.

Her: “I’m sorry I don’t love you anymore.”

Jilted Ex: “It’s fine. I completely understand. Your new guy is certified Hallmark Hot. Enjoy your kiss at minute 59.”

So, I started writing a short story. Just for fun. It was supposed to be an over-the-top, slapstick, ridiculous Christmas town Saga. Probably for my eyes only. Written with the purest intentions out of respect for the movies that I genuinely adore… with a twist of snarkiness that I enjoy writing. (And a lot less wholesome)

As I wrote my version of Christmas Cable TV silliness, Summer and Nick (my leads) came to life in my head and in my heart.  The people in their lives warmed my soul, like your hands around a piping hot mug of cocoa. And the short, silly story I started turned into something more. The strange offbeat town of Christmassy crackpots I created (Arid Falls) and the people who lived there turned into something more.

Something really special.

And the book transformed into Snowman.


***

This book is for the hopeless romantics who unapologetically binge-watch cable TV Christmas movies, want the kiss before the last minute of the story, and crave a little more… heat.

This is for you.

And me.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed writing it.

mybook.to/TheCasualWedding

Free-Spirit Allie Lewis never imagined she’d get married. Putting a ring on it was for other people. But things changed when she met her soulmate—hot, tattooed, foul-mouthed Vince Rinaldo. Yummy. Both a little crazy, with unfiltered thoughts, and equally adventurous libidos… they were a match made in heaven.

And bathroom stalls.

With her best friend (and other soulmate) Julia Martin, she navigates the road to holy matrimony, hitting a few potholes along the way.

Join Julia, Ben, Marcello, and Peter one more time for some laughs and love as they see Allie and Vince off to the matrimonial sunset.

Hopefully.

This book is not a standalone. It’s Allie’s continued story from The Casual Rule Series (book #3.5). (Approx. 40K words)… Link in bio

A New Career is Calling

man and text I am influencer in a note

I’m thinking about becoming a Social Media “Influencer.” I mean, how hard could it be? Make money by taking something you know and love and convince people to buy and/or do it. I endorse this already!

Been wracking my brain, figuring out what to influence the public in… food, cosmetics, clothes, sports, healthy living (<–okay, the last one is a joke…  not happening). So many choices!

It occurred to me that I should choose something closer to the real me, something I possess vast knowledge of…

The Art of Procrastination. (i.e., I’m procrastinating right now writing this instead of my book.  See how good I am!)

Can you imagine the boatload of cash Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram would make off my Social Media influencing?   They’re the Holy Trinity of time wasting. Bless them. Dare I say, I’m quite the expert at dillydallying on those sites for hours on end. I can post video shorts of me cursing at my Twitter feed. It’ll make you want to hop on the Twitter train and curse along with AC. We all win.

I could push the sale of sofas for couch potato basics. Length and hardness don’t only reference sex scenes.  No one wants an unsatisfying softy. This is important stuff, folks.

The snack industry could potentially rake in billions as I post pictures of the crap I inhale while fighting boredom and doing anything but what I’m supposed to be doing.

AC Netzel is no more… going forward call me, AC Nachos.

All it takes is a hashtag and a dream.

I’ll get around to that… someday.

After a bad break-up, Julia wasn’t interested in another romantic relationship. Ben wasn’t interested in commitment. Unable to fight their undeniable attraction, they embarked on a purely physical friends-with-benefits affair.

The only rule was to keep things casual.

But some rules were meant to be broken.

And their casual rule was obliterated.

Now madly in love and deeply committed to each other, they’re on the road to tying the knot.

With best friends like Allie, secret friend Stuart, and a big Italian family to help smooth out a few bumps on the matrimonial highway, getting to their wedding day may be one unpredictable ride.

A little more sweet, a little more smut, a little more snark.

This is the third and last of The Casual Rule series.
