More What's News in Writing This Week

1. New Release - Caught in the Spin by Sharleen Scott


     When bull rider Tom Black earned his business and psychology degrees, his goal was to manage his championship winnings and entertain his friends with intellectual psychobabble. Years after a near-fatal bull riding wreck ends his career, a spooky nocturnal visit from a former love has Tom wishing he’d paid more attention in psych class.
An attorney confirms his ex-fiancĂ©’s death and drops the news Tom is the father of a resentful eleven-year-old stranger. Tom isn’t sure he’s up to the task and thinks his recent acquaintance with sexy single mom Tallie Peters is his best hope for parental success.
Tallie Peters is up to her eyebrows in troubles. She survived her ex-husband’s attempt on her life and has kept her son safe. But budget cuts and phony good behavior put her ex back on the streets early, and he’s vowed to finish the job that put him in prison. Tom offers Tallie and her son refuge behind the gates of the Masterson-Black ranch, but he soon finds the best security measures are no match for a determined ex-con with nothing to lose.

5.  And don`t forget to check out the cookbook Bake, Love, Write. 105 recipes from 105 authors.

What do most authors have in common, no matter what genre they write? They love desserts. Sweets sustain them through pending deadlines and take the sting out of crushing rejection letters and nasty reviews. They also often celebrate their successes—selling a book, winning a writing award, making a bestseller list, or receiving a fabulous review—with decadent indulgences. And when authors chat with each other, they often talk about their writing and their lives. Recipes. Writing. Relationships. In this cookbook 105 authors not only share their favorite recipes for fabulous cakes, pies, cookies, candy, and more, they also share the best advice they’ve ever received on love and writing.
