Some Writerly News and Shelli Stevens Debut at Kensington!
Tuesday, July 28th, 2009

Morning all!

I have an awesome feature interview coming up with blogger Wonderful, Lea from the Closetwriter blog! But first, some quick news: I have a book signing coming up in Palos Heights at Bestsellers Books with author Julie James! For the address, see my home page. If you have a question regarding the book signing, write me at bethkery@aol.com. Second, Samhain is going to be publishing a sexy short novel I wrote called Holiday Bound this Christmas season. Excited about that.

After years as a slave to the pleasures of the powerful, Talia knows how to make a man mad with lust. But her pleasure counts for nothing—until a handsome, ruthless stranger appears. Ryder dares to look at her… to touch her… to awake in her a desire she’s never imagined. When he kidnaps her to learn her secrets, Talia vows not to let her passion take control. But soon she discovers that her captor’s intense gaze and searching hands can perform their own kind of interrogation, a sweet torture she finds impossible to resist…

Writing Challenges
Monday, July 13th, 2009

woman writing

Writing is a job. It’s a labor of love, for me, but it’s work, nonetheless. And like all work, I need a kick in the pants once in a while.

I’ve participated in the 70 Days of Sweat writing challenge before, and found it very useful for disciplining myself to make deadlines. Recently, I found myself needing some extra motivation, so I joined league with authors Fiona Jayde and Lacey Savage for our own little writing challenge.

What’s the difference between challenging yourself and joining league with others? Well, for one thing, you’re accountable to another person or persons. You have to ‘report in’ your word count for the day. No, they aren’t going to yell at you if you don’t make your word count, but there’s something about saying…”I didn’t do it” to someone else that acts as its own kind of motivation.

Plus, if you’re struggling, it’s nice to have people who know what you’re working on, who can empathize, and offer both general support and specific suggestions. Writing is, for the most part, a solitary profession, so it’s nice to share some common goals for a period of time.

Giving away a book of choice to one commenter today
Sunday, July 12th, 2009

at the yahoo chat group I share with authors Julianna Stone, Lacey Savage and Fiona Jayde! Come and join the fun, leave a comment, and qualify to win your choice of Wicked Burn, Daring Time or Sweet Restraint!

Release Day Afterglow
Thursday, July 9th, 2009

Still basking in the Sweet Restraint release day afterglow. I’ve been checking out a few bookstores. Lots of awesome new books on the shelf. I started reading Robyn Carr’s Temptation Ridge, and I’m really enjoying it so far. How about you? What’s your nose buried in?

I met Julie James last night for a glass of wine, and we talked books, publishing and writing. It’s fun to exchange ideas with a fellow author, and Julie is bright and inquiring. The time always flies, and we’ve been gabbing the whole time.

I’m working on edits for Release. I was told by my advisor Mary G. that a good phrase for discussing this book releasing would be to say ‘Release debuts in February 2010.’

Yeah. No Release releasing. lol.
