Cover & Blurb Reveal for LUKE - Blogger Signup Form :)

 BLOGGERS 


I'm SO excited for the release of my new sexy cowboy romance, Luke: The McKades of Texas #3 (Releasing Summer 2018), and would love your help spreading the word.
This book means so much to me, and I can’t even begin to tell you just how much I love Luke and how his story turned out. It’s light, funny, steamy (wink wink) and filled with plenty of McKade updates—plus a cowgirl who really gives him a run for his money.

Thank you so much for considering being a part of the release! I really, really appreciate you taking the time to read this and everything that you do!
Thank you again!

Coming Soon ...

Hey, y'all! I've got some really exciting news ...





I've finally finished writing Luke's book!








I can't even begin to explain just how excited and terrified I am at the same time. It's been *covers mouth and mumbles* since I've released a McKade book, and I am so sorry for that. Not gonna lie, Luke's book was tough. The original outline I had planned out just didn't work after I wrote the other two, so it was back to the drawing board. And then things were moving too fast and then too slow ... it's been a process, that's for sure. But it's done and I can't wait to get his story into your hands! My editor is currently doing her thing and I'm impatiently waiting and trying to keep myself busy with all of the other fun activities that come with releasing a new book. I'm planning a cover and blurb reveal that I will announce soon :) And while his book is currently not available for pre-order, you CAN add it to your TBR list on Goodreads!


I'll be back soon with more updates!

XO & Happy Reading!
Kimberly

Release Blitz: ONE LAST TIME by Corinne Michaels

2018-SBPRBANNER-OLT-RB

One Last Time by Corinne Michaels 

Release Date: February 26th, 2018 Genre: Contemporary Romance

OLT_FrontCover

From New York Times bestselling author, Corinne Michaels, comes a new heartwarming standalone romance.

I’m getting really good at cutting my losses.
First, the husband. Divorcing him was the best decision I ever made. But between single-parenting and job-hunting, I can’t catch my breath. When a celebrity blogging position falls into my lap, I’m determined to succeed.
That is, until I get my first assignment and actually see Noah Frazier for the first time . . . practically naked and dripping wet. My heart races and I forget how to form complete sentences. His chiseled abs, irresistible smirk, and crystal blue eyes are too perfect to be real. So, what do I do? Get drunk and humiliate myself, of course.
I’m ready to forget the awkward night, yet Noah has no intention of allowing me to move on. Instead, he arranges for me to write a feature on him, ensuring a lot more time together. One embarrassing moment after another, one kiss after another, and before I can stop myself, I realize—I’m falling in love with him.
But when the unthinkable happens, can I even blame him for cutting his losses?
What I wouldn’t give for just one last time . . .

Confessions of a Romance Author

“What is the first piece of creative writing you remember creating?”


This was asked today in a writing group I belong to, and I didn’t have to think hard at all to come up with the answer. My mind immediately flashed back to seven-year-old me, sitting in my bedroom and frantically adding the last few touches of color to my very first “book” before catching the bus to school. 
Created on lined notebook paper and bound with staples, it was beautiful. 
It was a masterpiece. 
It was … a short story about a giant piece of broccoli who was a detective.

Coming soon to a book store near you … 
Detective Broccoli Written and Illustrated by Kimberly Lewis

It sounds about as awesome as it was. I’d taken one of earth’s most despised vegetables, popped him in Sherlock Holmes attire, and set him off on a mission to help a poor little girl find her missing text book so she wouldn’t be late for school (spoiler alert: it was on her bed the whole time).

This memory, although light-hearted and super fun, kind of hit me hard though. I’d been so proud of that little book, took it to school that same day, and presented it our librarian who then had me read it aloud for story time. I still praise that woman for providing me with confidence from her ongoing encouragement to write/draw more. Up until her time of retirement, there was a little teeny tiny section dedicated to my work on our school’s library shelves. But the thing that hit me hard about this memory was how I’d been so freakin’ fearless back then.

Y’all … I wrote a book about a self-aware vegetable and showed it off like it was a NY Times Bestseller!

It took a lot for me to write my first book as an adult and even more for me to share it with people. Why? I’ll tell you why, and I’m sure you already know the answer: Fear. I was no longer confident and fearless. I was scared out of my mind for people to read my stuff.

“What if they hate it?”


“What if they totally bash my book?”

“What if they liked it?”

“What if I can’t pump out books fast enough to keep readers interested in my writing?”

Welcome to the mind of an author.

Now, by all means, I am no expert on giving writing or publishing advice. I’m still learning myself here. But thinking about my first creative story and then my first published story really got me in the mood to throw out what advice I can give, and I’m about to tell you—advice I’ve repeated to myself a lot over these last few years.

Embrace the fear. Embrace the mistakes. Embrace the “I’m doing the best I can with the time I have”. Take it and learn from it, because no matter what anyone tells you, every success story has a failure in there somewhere.  Failure means you tried. Failure means you were at least brave enough to put yourself out there—brave enough to take the lesson and use that information to better your craft.


Bottom line, if you’re an aspiring author, or even an established author in a bit of a slump: 

Don’t give up J


XOXO,
Kimberly

Four years ago, my world fell apart. There was no “goodbye.” No explanation. So I moved on—unwilling to let the heartache consume me—and learned to cherish the memories for what they were and not what they could've been. I thought my heart had mended, and that I was happy.

But I was wrong…
