Blatant Self-Promotion: CHOOSING CARTER to be bundled

cj Sez:   Choosing Carter is one of six—count them, six—contemporary romance novels being repackaged by publisher Crimson Romance into one primo bundle titled More Than Friends.

The six-book bundle is currently scheduled to be available September 19 at all Crimson Romance outlets for the low, low price of 99 cents.   

Wow!  99 cents for Choosing Carter and five more contemporary romance novels . . . SUCH A DEAL!  (I think I just used up my allotted number of exclamation points.)

Watch for it … September 19 … but, of course, I will remind you.

I’m currently refreshing a previously published short story (yes, I have the rights), getting it ready to submit to another anthology.  The 2016 Alabama Writers Conclave conference has inspired me. My task is to up the word count on the old story from 4100 to between 8,000 and 12,000 and get it done before September 15. I don't think there will be more characters, but I will surely need a lot more action and mystery in it. I think I can; I think I can; I think I can. Wish me luck?

Okay, you-all guys keep on keeping on, and I’ll try to do the same.

  1. Congratulations! You earned it. Great book!

    1. cj Sez: Thanks for stopping by, Mahala, and I really appreciate the applause.

  2. Congrats on your bundle of joy!!
    I'm doing the opposite with a short story of mine. Cutting it from 4K to fit the guidelines of a lit mag I want to submit it to that caps off at 2k. :/

    1. cj Sez: Wow, best wishes on the 2k word reduction. The reverse may not be so touch if I use a lot adverbs and descriptions (not). Thanks for the note.

  3. cj Sez: If I could type as well as spell, "touch" would be "tough." (Sigh)


Your turn! Got a question or comment? The author would love to hear it. (Comments are moderated to reflect the Lyrical Pens brand, so please keep it clean, else it gets dumped into that little chamber pot in the sky.)
