East meets West in this passionate romance novella by Carly Chase!
LA gym owner Candace Jackson is feeling jaded after too many bad dates, and is determined not to get her hopes up about the next man to ask her out. However, when the handsome, wealthy and mysterious Akito walks through the door to ask about starting up a new martial arts course at her gym, she feels an attraction she just can’t fight.
Akito is not all that he seems, however, and has a past in Tokyo that he is terrified might catch up with him. No matter how much he wants Candace, he can’t allow her to be put in harm’s way because of the secrets he is running from. He may have the fighting skills and the strength to protect her, but can she ever be truly safe while he’s around?
Can Akito face up to his demons, and will Candace be able to accept him when she knows the truth about him?
When Nicole Snow releases a new book, the romance world listens. This book is tearing up the charts and, as usual, is getting amazing reviews. It’s currently selling for around $2.25 but that price will likely climb soon, so if you’re a Nicole Snow fan, now might be a good time to pick this up.
Alexa Riley keeps cranking out the hits heading into the Christmas season, and Lift is no exception. But this book isn’t about the sweetness of the season, it’s a fast, hot ride that you’ve come to expect from this best selling writing team.
We’re getting ever closer to the end of NaNoWriMo. The end is in sight. The pressure to get to 50,000 is greater than ever.
What happens after the end of November? Will your novel be complete in 50,000 words? You started out this month with the dream of being a NaNoWriMo winner. Now you’ve got tens of thousands of words in front of you. It’s the novel that you’ve been thinking about writing for ages, right in front of you, coming together right before your eyes. Of course, you still want to win NaNoWriMo, but you’re also starting to realize that your book is nearly finished too.
Suddenly your goals have changed. Your focus has been split into two. Should you be focusing on getting to 50,000 words? Or should you be polishing your novel?
Now, at first glance, those two goals sound pretty similar, but actually they are vastly different. If you follow your NaNoWriMo aim of getting to 50,000 words then you’re not doing any editing, you’re not going back and proofreading anything. It doesn’t matter if what you just wrote isn’t quite perfect, because the time for editing is after the 30th November.
However, if your goal is completing your novel, then there is a temptation to start editing now. That loss of focus is going to slow you down and that might just cost you your NaNoWriMo glory.
No matter how excited you are about making your novel perfect, don’t turn your back on winning NaNoWriMo! Being a NaNoWriMo winner is akin to finishing a marathon. It’s intense, it’s exhausting and it’s something that you can be proud of for the rest of your life. You wouldn’t get to mile 24 and just decide that you’re no longer interested in finishing. Push through, no matter how tempted you are to start editing your manuscript, and win NaNoWriMo!
Keep writing! You’ve got this.
