It's #TeaserTuesday (and for a change, I'm actually doing it on a Tuesday) Here's another peek into My Best Friend's Ex - Trevor screws up in this book, as heroes do, and part of his grand gesture is to put in a skylight for Callie. There's more to the gesture, but you have to read the book to find out.

I'm excited to share this amazing giveaway with you all. It was such a privilege to participate in this year's annual Authors4Veterans charity drive. Not only did we help veterans' families, we also have 4 bags to share with our readers.

So, to back up a little bit, Authors4Veterans is a non-profit organization started by Stacey Joy Netzel and PJ Fiala in 2017. The purpose of Authors4Veterans is simple; they contact fellow authors like myself, asking for a small monetary donation and books, swag and comfort items. They bag them up in beautiful canvas zippered bags and deliver them to Fisher House Wisconsin. Fisher House is a fantastic organization, located on the VA grounds in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where military families who need temporary housing can stay while their loved one receives care at the VA hospital. This is all free to the families. There are currently 84 houses in operation. You can find out more about Fisher House here - https://www.fisherhouse.org/

Authors4Veterans' came to be as Stacey and PJ both come from strong military backgrounds and they wanted to give back in some way. To date, our author bags have been given to over 115 families. Sometimes families have little notice that they have to rush to the hospital and these bags come in handy as they usually contain toothbrushes, toothpaste, shower soap, hand lotion, etc. in them as well as the books and swag. Families are given a bag upon check-in. Fisher House has shared that the families are often over-come with emotion at the generosity of the authors and how comforting the bags have been.

So, all that said, we also want to give something to our readers! Enter the giveaway below for a chance to win your own Authors4Veterans bag filled with goodies. The giveaway ends at 11:45p CST on June 20th. Four winners will be drawn and announced on June 21st. There are several opportunities for you to enter the giveaway, and of course, sharing it is always appreciated.

Enter the giveaway here - https://authors4veterans.com/2019/06/june-reader-giveaway/

I know an author that is working on something seen in this picture into a amateur sleuth series she is writing. Cannot say more for now! Thank you @150ish.

I was looking forward to having gelato every day. Wouldn’t you? But it turns out that in the Maremma, it’s not as popular as in Rome. So no gelato until Rome 😩But this combination of Riso and Fiori di Latte gelato at @gioletti.official made up for all the missed days. The waiter forced me to add whipped cream!

Shannyn Schroeder’s series revisited.

Today we have the blog tour for O’LEARY SERIES by Shannyn Schroeder! I am so excited to share this sexy series with you—including the last in the series, Hold Me Close!

Title: HOLD ME CLOSE
Author: Shannyn Schroeder
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Series: O’Leary’s, Book 6

About Hold Me Close:
Taming a spirited, fun-loving O'Leary may be harder than he realized...

After more than a year in Ireland, Maggie O'Leary is finally coming back to Chicago with a plan for her future. Confronting the tragedy that destroyed her is her first step. But to do that, she needs to work in her family's bar--something her family doesn't want. Luckily, her best friend, Shane Callahan, is her biggest support--and lovable in a way she doesn’t remember.

Determined to protect Maggie, Shane refuses to leave the bar when she's working late. And when Maggie boldly tells him that she wants him to help her conquer her final fear—sex—Shane knows a single night together won't be possible. The idea of a spirited Maggie in his bed is everything, but will she believe he wants her heart too?

BETRAYED: Powerful Stories of Kick-Ass Crime Survivors
Anthology Authors: Allison Brennan, James L'Etoile, Liam Sweeny, Terri Lynn Coop et al
Short Story Collection for
Charity

Twenty two collected short by talented authors were donated to earn contributions for domestic violence charities. These range in POV, focus, and scope to celebrate survivors who have conquered challenges most can not fathom.

LEGAL AID by Terri Lynn Coop compares the quality of legal options available in DV cases, while presenting a well-crafted creepiness factor, complete with an imaginary sound track to chill your blood.

In WHEN THE MUSIC STOPS, James L’Etoile illustrates how criminal justice is the result or only option when social services network has little or so options or resources to help even when that option is sought.

Allison Brennan’s MIRROR, MIRROR is heart-wrenching novella that brings this tragedy to life. It’s not desperate though, just thought-provoking.

HOW TO NOT FIND SOMEBODY IN HOUSTON by Liam Sweeny approaches these issues from a different POV and brilliantly presents a moral dilemma to ponder.

These and eighteen others champion the cause of those who have been betrayed by those in positions that should nurture and protect them. More than surviving, most of these heroes are charting new paths to a better future. Read these stories as you will-either in small bites or as a multi-course banquet. I highly recommend you read this collection to experience the full-spectrum of emotions; and helping to support worth-while charities is vital.

So good. Wendy Tyson’s  book and this review

So good. Wendy Tyson’s book and this review

The first review of RIPE FOR VENGEANCE, book #5 in the Greenhouse Mystery Series, is in, and it's lovely. Thank you, Any Good Book!

"I absolutely love this book...Ms. Tyson is a talented storyteller that knows how to take many threads and weave them together skillfully into an intriguing tapestry of murder, greed, jealousy, cunning, and even hope. She does this with aplomb, giving us a suspenseful tale that will have you riveted to the tale until you reach the end...When the ending comes and the killer is revealed, it comes as a bit of a surprise but misdirection is applied quite nicely, and it only adds to the satisfaction of knowing that what we've just read is indeed a wonderful book. This is a worthy addition to the series and I look forward to reading the next. Highly recommended."
