Book Trailer for the ALL ACCESS Trilogy by Tina Mrazik

ALL ACCESS Trilogy

Fabulous New Trailer for the ALL ACCESS Trilogy by Tina Mrazik

Best ALL ACCESS The Search for Paradise by Tina Mrazik

Available now where all books are sold!

If you’re like most fans of rock and roll, then you imagine the life of a rock star is all about easy fame and fortune, big money, all-night partying, and doing what you love most. The same goes for writers and film stars, right?

Well, the money is good, the parties are happening, and we are doing what we love more than anything in the world, but getting there isn’t as easy as you think. My name is Tina Marz, and while I’m searching for my paradise, life throws me a lot of curves and hard lessons in my search for my success. It is all about hard work, long hours, and just when I think paradise is within reach…maybe it’s not. Come join me on my journey to the top, and I’ll give you an all access look at the truth about life in the spotlight…my life.

Best ALL ACCESS Paradise Found

Available now where all books are sold!

Fame and fortune are the name of the game, and I seem to have a handle on it now. But now I wonder if it’s what I’ve always wanted or just a fantasy world built on desire, and the need to be loved. Don’t get me wrong…paradise is wonderful. It’s grander and far sweeter than anything I imagined for me, Tina Marz. The money is good, the parties are happening, and I am doing what I love more than anything in the world but it isn’t all easy work hours, freewheeling lifestyle, and glamour.

It is a hard road to travel and now staying on top is possibly more work than getting here. Is this finally my paradise? A seemingly perfect world filled with fame, fortune, and true love. Finally, I’ve found my life as a famous songwriter-novelist-screenwriter rock star. But is paradise forever?

Best ALL ACCESS Finding My Way Back Home by Tina Mrazik

Releasing soon from eXstasybooks…

Sometimes paradise isn’t everything after all, and it can slip away in a moment…

I found my paradise. I created it from a lot of hard work, a desire to succeed, sometimes by neglecting those who love me most, and losing others who left me heartbroken. With success comes power, fame, but many times it brings paranoia and despair too. Now, when things can’t possibly be better for me, when things couldn’t be sweeter, and love more wonderful, things begin to start falling apart…and it’s all my own doing.

The life of a superstar isn’t all glamour and happy good times. In fact, it can be downright dangerous at times, scary as hell, and can leave you feeling like you’re spinning out of control. You don’t always know whom best to trust, even when you love them with all of your heart. In the end, it’s up to me, Tina Marz, to find my way back home.

***This is a fabulous trilogy about a rock star and her journey to the top. It will grip you mind and heart.

I highly recommend reading the ALL ACCESS Trilogy by Tina Mrazik and make sure you have tissues nearby for the end of the third book. I cried my eyes out all three times I read it.❤

Happy Writing Everyone!

Cover Reveal for RYDER, a Men of Clifton Montana novel by Susan Fisher-Davis with #excerpt

Best RYDER by Susan Fisher-DavisRYDER

A Men of Clifton, Montana novel #5

by Susan Fisher-Davis

Ryder Wolfe is a solitary man. Happy, living alone with his horses and the mountains as company until the man, who rescued him from the streets as a lost teen, sends him a beautiful woman in need of protection. He takes her in even as it goes against his very character. Now he’s fighting his desire to have her for his own with all he has. But his job is to protect her, not seduce her.

Kelsey Sullivan hasn’t had the best luck with men but then one of them decides to stalk her, and make her life miserable. A family friend sends her to Clifton, Montana. To the one man trusted to protect her. But what if the man protecting her is the man she wants more than any other, only he insists on protecting her, even from himself?

Can Ryder accept her love and trust in the man she believes he is?

Excerpt: 

She was preparing a pot of coffee in the kitchen when the back door opened. She turned to see Ryder enter with the dogs following behind. She could feel and smell the cold coming off them. The dogs greeted her with pants and wagging tails. Without a word, they sat down in front of her. She smiled and reached down to pet them. They put their paws up for her to shake. She laughed and looked at Ryder, who busied himself taking his hat and coat off. He hung his hat on a peg by the door, then walked into the laundry room and hung up his coat.

Happy Release Day to my fab client, Susan Fisher-Davis!

I’m so excited to announce one of my clients has gone independent publishing and has released her first indie pub book today. It is the third book in an already established series, but it’s her first without a publisher. Huzzah to Susan Fisher-Davis and may COOPER do great with the readers. I have no doubt. :-)

COOPER by Susan Fisher-Davis

 COOPER

book 3 in the Bad Boys of Dry River, Wyoming

by Susan Fisher-Davis

Cooper Lang has all he needs in life—his ranch, his motorcycle shop and female companionship whenever he wants it. So when Kendra Mattingly reappears one hot summer day and knees him in the groin for kissing her, he knows he should stay clear but being one of the Bad Boys of Dry River also means accepting dangerous challenges and this obstinate beauty is definitely too much to resist. 

Kendra has been in love with Cooper since her teens but after he rejected her, she settled for a loveless marriage, which she eventually escaped. Now her chance with Cooper has finally arrived yet she can’t help but feel he doesn’t desire the same things in life. 

Upfront about his feelings regarding marriage and kids, Kendra ends things because she’s always wanted marriage and a family. When her past threatens her safety, Cooper wonders if he’s made a huge mistake. 

I hope you’ll check out this amazing story…since I was the editor, I can pat myself on the back and brag a little about this one. It’s good! Feel free to contact me about helping you succeed in making your story the best it can be too. COOPER is available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Kobobooks.

***And yes, in case you’re wondering, I wrote the blurb for this. Just so you know. I can do the same for you.

Happy Writing Everyone!

Celebrating My Two Year Anniversary & International Literacy Day

I'm CelebratingToday is ROMANCING EDITORIALLY’s 2 year Anniversary!

I’ve had a great first two years. I’ve been fortunate enough to see a few of my clients benefit from my talents and gain themselves publishing contracts.

But to celebrate my Anniversary, I’m doing something special!
***In addition, for the rest of the month of September, any new client, whether you’re looking for a full Polish or just a copy edit, is welcome to a FREE sample edit of the first 2000 words of their manuscript. So try me out…you might just love what I can do to make your work even better than you thought. If you’ve got any questions, feel free to ask away.

Even the Best Writers Needed an Editor…

author-writing-writer“Dear Aspiring Writer, you are not ready. Stop. Put that finished story away and start another one. In a month, go back and look at the first story. RE-EDIT it. Then send it to a person you respect in the field who will be hard on you. Pray for many many many red marks. Fix them. Then put it away for two weeks. Work on something else. Finally, edit one last time. Now you are ready to sub your first work.

Criticism is hard to take at first. Trust me, I’ve been there. But learn to think of crit marks as a knife. Each one is designed to cut away the bad and leave a scar. Scars prove you’ve lived, learned and walked away a winner. Any writer who tells you they don’t need edits is lying. I don’t care if they have 100 books out. Edits make you grow and if you aren’t growing as a writer, you are dead.” ― Inez Kelley

You would not believe how tempted I was to edit this, but it is great advice.

Perfection is unattainable but you can get very close with patience, revisions, an aggressive editor (that’s me), and thick skin.

The Grammarly team has created a fun post, demonstrating how no one is above writing mistakes and although, FIFTY SHADES OF GREY has endured the most when it comes to criticism for its poor writing, some of the greats are guilty too.

As you can see, behind every great writer should be a good editor, and if you can’t afford one who charges thousands of dollars, and makes you pay for multiple editorial services, you can afford me.

Happy Writing Everyone!

Are You Looking for a Traditional #Publisher for Your Book?

Good Writing

Not everyone is interested in indie publishing his/her work, and that’s understandable. Indie publishing takes a lot of work, in some cases – a lot of money, and with no guarantees, so perhaps traditional publishing is the right choice for you. Just remember, you still want your work to shine its brightest before submitting to any publisher and I’m here to help you with that. Remember, I’ll polish it so bright, your readers will need shades.

Here are just a few of the many publishers actively seeking exciting new voices:

Avon Impulse/Avon Romance: 

Avon Impulse is the ebook division of Avon Romance and publishes the majority of new authors but once established in ebook sales, an author can progress to traditional print as well. Avon Impulse is always on the lookout for new voices, new and different romances from erotic romance to New Adult, historical to contemporary.
Avon books are sold at nearly every digital marketplace available including through Harper Collins.

If you have a completed manuscript that you think Avon would be interested in, you’ll need a query, brief synopsis, a favorite scene from your work, and the completed manuscript in any readable format. They’re not too particular about that, but standard best is 12 pt Times Roman, double-spaced with 1 inch borders. Make sure you include name, pen name, and good contact information such an active email address.

Avon Impulse is currently open for submissions and looking for:

~~ Romantic Suspense

~~ Super sexy contemporaries

~~ Trilogies—and beyond (If you have a series, they want to see it.)

~~ Historical Romance with a hook

So if you think you have what they want, submit to Avon Impulse at

http://avonromance.com/impulse

 

Totally Entwined:  

Totally Entwined was established in 2006, and has already been successful with Totally Bound (Erotic Romance), but this year has added three new publishing houses to their already expanding business—Young Adult, Crime & Thriller, and Gay Fiction.

Totally Entwined is a royalty paying, full service traditional publisher with a full support staff, and marketing team.

They only accept electronic communication. Manuscripts and other items must be sent via e-mail attachment, as a .doc, .docx or .rtf file.
You will need to include, a detailed synopsis of your book, completed double-spaced manuscript formatted in standard 12 pt, and Book Antiqua is preferred.

Include your name, pen name and contact e-mail in the Query Letter and Synopsis.

They are looking for several different lengths, genres, and if your story is really hot—all the better. So go for it, and if you think, you have what they’re looking for check out the submission guidelines for Totally Entwined at

http://www.totallyboundpublishing.com/

 

Calderwood Books:

Calderwood Books is an ebook publisher, first started in 2007. They do have print on demand versions available for some books. Most ebook publishers these days focus on Romance only, but Calderwood Books has a much broader approach. They publish most genre work except for erotica, and are especially interested in cross genre work, which doesn’t necessarily fit into an established market.

Their slogan is: Good Readers Deserve Good Books.

It’s a small company run by only three people, but they have been around for a while now and are firmly established. Their books are available in most major digital marketplaces.

Calderwood Books is currently open for submissions. There is not listed deadline for when they’ll close so I advise keeping an eye on them and if you’re interested in submitting, do it soon.

To submit, send Calderwood Books an email with the word ‘query’ in the subject line, a cover letter, a bio, and a short and concise synopsis of your book. As with many publishers, they prefer you don’t send attachments so put only what is requested in your email. That also means they prefer you do NOT send sample chapters or full manuscripts. They’ll ask you for more if they’re interested.

Their guidelines don’t mention word limits, but most of the books published by them are on the shorter side, which seems to becoming somewhat the norm for some publishers of ebooks.
