The Casual Rule
(can be read as a Standalone)

Amazon Reviews:
~The was the perfect book to pull me out of this rut I’ve been in. It was funny, sweet, steamy, and just overall perfection.

~If you are looking for a fun, witty, sweet story that will make you laugh then The Casual Rule is the book for you. I loved this story. It is funny and sexy with a bit of drama all in one.

~FABULOUS! AWESOME! And every other superlative you can think. OH MY! Such tender love. Totally a page turner and I do mean that. Do not start this book at bedtime. I did and finished it at 6 A.M. with an appointment at 9 AM. If I could give it more than 5*, I would. And I rarely ever say that about any book and I have read some terrific books. This book hooked me from the very beginning. No superfluous words. Just amazing writing. I almost passed this book up due to title. Had no idea what it meant. Does not indicate the poignancy and love in this story until you begin reading. But once you get into book, you understand THE CASUAL RULE. If you truly love heartrending romance, READ THIS BOOK. I read it and turned right around the next day and reread it. Still makes me tingle.

Reviews:

~Wow! An absolutely amazing follow up book and so emotionally charged that I cried a few times during this read. Brilliant story; everyone should read this series!!!

~I just love Ben and Julia. They honestly have to be one of my favorite book couples

~AC Netzel is a hidden talent just waiting to be discovered. The New Rule was emotional and heartwarming and all of those other words that are used to describe something good. She has some of the most fun and witty dialogue between characters that I have read not to mention the seriously HOT sex

The New Rule (The Casual Rule 2) The Casual Rule should be read before The New Rule.  There is no cliffhanger ending.  Just a little more sweet, a little more smut, a little more snark.

 Love this continuation of Ben and Julie. The book was filled with love laughter tears and some great sex too! :) -Amazon 5* review

People are Awesome… Here’s Proof…

I posted this on my facebook page, so if you read  it there, you can skip this….

~o0o~

Last night, our High School held Scholarship Night. Local businesses and groups generously donate and award thousands of dollars to hundreds of high school seniors in the community. It’s a pretty amazing night, highlighting all the things a community can do right.

It’s also pretty humbling to see these young people, who  last time I saw them I was their Room Mom in the second grade, turn into these amazing 17/18 year olds ready to move on to the next phase of their lives. (Yet I haven’t aged a day… maybe wine works like formaldehyde if you drink enough.)

As many of you know my son was seriously ill for quite some time. Once he was released from the hospital, the school provided home-bound teachers for each of his core subjects until he was well enough to return.

That’s when we met Mr. X. He was a substitute teacher, out of college for maybe a year, looking to get his foot in the door and get a full time teaching job. Once a week for two months, he came to our home with assignments from the teacher and reviewed the school work with my son. In addition to the subject at hand, they found that they had a lot in common and quickly bonded over their shared appreciation of indie and foreign films, and music.

Eventually, my son was well enough to attend school. Half days at first, then finally full days. In that time he’d see Mr. X in the hallways, subbing for this class and that class. They’d chat occasionally and catch up.

A year has since passed which that brings us to last night. Scholarship night.

Hundreds of scholarships were awarded. Not huge windfalls, but since college expenses are insane, every penny is appreciated and helps.

We noticed in the program of listed awards was one sponsored by Mr. X. The name of the scholarship:

***The Super Stupendous (Yet Still Decently Awesome & Spectacular) Scholarship for the Blossoming Mind ***

Six students were awarded this prestigious award, my son included. Was it a lot of money? No… but it was absolutely priceless to us.

This meant the world to my son… and to us. Each came with a card with a long private note. I won’t go into the specifics of the note… but I will say that Mr. X told him that he knew my son was destined for great things. He ended the note with “I BELIEVE IN YOU.”

A simple four word sentence that was so powerful it truly moved my son and filled him with pride. And because he knows Mr. X believes in him… he believes in himself.

I know Mr. X is destined for great things as well. I have no doubt he’ll be an exceptional teacher. His future students will be as fortunate as my son was to have such a special individual believe in them.

Which cements my belief that even in this crazy world…

You can do something small yet meaningful and make a tremendous impact.

And most importantly,

Ordinary people can do extraordinary things and change your life.

End Notes:

Since There’s a new FSOG coming out soon, I did a super short FSOG fanfic update on Nighttime thoughts the other day..

https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9622993/5/Nighttime-Thoughts-A-Late-Night-Thoughts-One-Shot

Ten Things I Like… and Other Stuff.

Feeding my apparent addictive personality, I blurbed again. I can’t help myself. I’m so technically challenged… the fact that I figured this out makes me downright giddy. I’ll post the blurbs at the bottom of this posting.

Now on to other things…

Back in January, I made a list of twenty things I hate. I’ve been trying to come up with a counter-list of twenty things I like. This has proved to be… well… challenging. The first three were easy. After that I had to actually think long and hard. And thinking long and hard hurts my brain.

What can I say? I’m a delicate flower.

So I’m going to give you ten and I’ll add to it some time down the road.

1- Flabby Chris Pratt- I love this guy. He seems so down to earth. Speaks highly of his wife. Tears up when he talks about his kid. Visits sick children in hospitals. He’s the real deal…a genuinely awesome human being. If I ever find out this was all an act… or he cheats on his wife… or was mean to an animal… I would be absolutely devastated.

2- Fit Chris Pratt- Three letters…. Abs! All the awesome, plus chiseled.

3- Sandra Bullock- I love her. I want to be her best friend. I want to hold her umbrella when it rains. Oh Sandy, I know you’ve got some snark in you… we need to drink and let the snark fly free for the world (us) to enjoy.

4- Tina Fey- Smart, funny and fierce.

5- Amy Poehler- See Tina Fey.

(Incidentally, I know they’re BFFs… I think Sandy and I could easily join their BFF club. Let’s make it a Quad, Ladies. The BFF Square… BS for short

6- Arrested Development- It’s my fault the show is off the air. Whenever I find a show I like, it gets cancelled. I’m sorry. How can’t you enjoy this goldmine of one-liners with brilliant lines like “I just blue myself” and “I suppose I’m buy-curious”? This was cast beautifully, and written so smart and witty. Love it. Remember… there’s always money in the banana stand.

7- Twizzlers- I’m not a chocolate person. On occasion, okay. But put a package of Twizzlers in front of me and I’m all in. It’s like candy crack. I know there are some who prefer Red Vines. I like Red Vines too. They have a unique unnatural plastic-y taste I enjoy. But I’m loyal and my heart still belongs to Twizzlers.

8- Napping- Friends have given me the nickname “The Napster”. I like napping. I can take a nap, wake up and ten minutes later take another. My husband is not a napper. I have tried to wrap my head around that phenomenon. For the life of me, I don’t understand how anyone could pass up a chance to sleep when the opportunity presented itself. On Seinfeld, when George Costanza got that desk with the secret napping compartment… I was jealous at its brilliance. Why didn’t I think of that?

9- Wine. (Although I liked it a little too much last night)

10- Berries. I’m a big fan of berries. Strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries. Love them. The only thing I don’t love is the price. I grew up near protected wetlands, so there were a lot of woods in the area. It was a great place to grow up. Blackberries grew wild everywhere. Thousands of blackberry bushes where there for the picking. In season, after school we’d go out with a coffee mug and pick a cup full for an after school snack. My house wasn’t one that was regularly full of cookies and other goodies, so this was nature’s way of giving back. That takes me to today… my backyard is full of wild berry bushes (courtesy of bird droppings). Since I don’t know if the berries are poisonous or not, I’m not willing to take a chance and either have a psychedelic 60’s acid-trip moment or die… I pull them out. (Thorny suckers, by the way). So, I go to the supermarket and a tiny pint costs me a pretty penny. I pay it, because I love it. And I deserve it, dammit. I’d try to grow my own, but the evil squirrels and chipmunks who dominate my yard would grab them first. Critter thief bastards.

I’ll come up with more at a later date… there can’t possibly be only ten things I like.

On to some business at hand.

It was brought to my attention that a few Chapters in my new book, The New Rule, take place Memorial Day weekend. So if you haven’t read it yet and plan to … the hell with your family. Spend it with Julia, Ben, and company.

And once again… thank you to everyone who has supported my writing. Before, during and after. I am grateful and humbled. Your PMs, emails, reviews on Amazon and Goodreads, facebook posts, twitter tweets, and blog posts mean the world to me. Writing is a very personal thing, (for me at least). I hope through these two books I managed to put a smile on your face, maybe gave you a laugh or two. Many people have expressed to me how they felt Julia and Ben were like real people… to me, they are.

To me they’re proof that ordinary people can have extraordinary love stories.

And one last thing before I blurb you…on a serious note.

If you observe Memorial Day weekend… Enjoy your family and friends, be safe, and most importantly…Remember the veterans who are no longer with us and if you see or know a veteran … thank him or her.

Blurb time!

Now that The New Rule is published, I have a little time on my hands. I no longer have the “I’ll get right to it, I’m editing now” excuse…  I ‘should’ clean my house or garden… or something else productive.

But why do that when there’s adobe photoshop to play around with? I made a few blurbs. Mostly so I could use blurb in a sentence… because it’s a ridiculous word… and I’m always attracted to the ridiculous.  So here we go.

I go back to writing on Monday… so indulge me while I play.

The New Rule is LIVE! And Thank you…

I’m a fly under the radar girl.  I don’t like a lot of sis-boom-bah and attention… so I’m going to (as quietly as I can) put this out there.

The New Rule… follow up to The Casual Rule… is now live on Amazon for Kindle.

(Incidentally, The Casual Rule is still free until Sunday… there’s a link in yesterday’s post)

I do want to take a quick minute to thank everyone who supported me.  My friends over in fanfiction-land and the new friends I’ve “met” over the past year through my book The Casual Rule.

I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I published my first book. When I hit the publish button, I thought four people would read it, and two people might like it. So the affection the book has received truly humbled me.  I was fortunate to hear from so many readers and fellow authors who either identified with Julia or knew someone like her. The truth is, I like Julia. And just like so many, not only did I like her relationship with Ben, but I liked (just as much) her relationship with Allie.  I’m glad so many of you felt the same way and wanted more of their story…. which lead me to write The New Rule.

And I hope it makes you smile when you read it.

I’d also like to thank the bloggers who took a chance on an unknown author.  They get a lot of requests… A LOT… I’m eternally grateful that they read, reviewed, and shared my book with their followers.

I’m a very grateful person for so many things.  And having readers who have supported me in my writing is the icing on the cake.  Thank you!

Okay, back to business….
