Cool Gus Book of the Week: A hot romance to warm up your fall day…

Welcome myself to the house!

There is something very special about the first book an author writes. Doesn’t matter if that manuscript went in a drawer, or eventually published, there is an overwhelming sense of satisfaction to have written “the end” for the very fist time.

In Two Weeks was the first book I ever wrote. Also the first book that was ever published. I was lucky that way. Trust me, I have my share of manuscripts hidden away in a drawer, but this book and these characters mattered so much to me that I had to re-write and re-write until it was ‘good enough’.

It all started one day at the lake… I had finished reading just about every backlist title for the tenth time by Nora Roberts and Sandra Brown. The ones from back in the 80’s. While my kids were playing in the lake, I picked up a pen and notebook and just started writing. See, I couldn’t pull them out of the water yet again so mommy could go buy another book. The Kindle did not exist back then. I though perhaps thinking of my own imaginary people might be fun. I had no laptop, so I’d write at the lake, then come home and type in what I wrote. I literally fell in love with these characters. So much so, that Jared makes an appearance in the 5th book in the series coming out in December: Murder in Paradise Bay.

You know its good when the characters inside you head just won’t be quiet. These characters spent over a year with me. And they keep popping up here and there, showing their faces as I write more books in the series.

In Two Weeks is currently free on all platforms right now. Below is links to all the platforms and a book trailer to give you a little taste of what the story is all about. Enjoy!
