Confessions about my new rom-com, The Fix Up

It's release day for my newest romantic comedy, The Fix Up, which means it's time to expose a couple things to you guys.

Not those things. It's snowy outside, and my ladybits are very susceptible to cold.

Nope, I'm going to go ahead and expose myself as one of the laziest authors alive. That's the only way I can explain why I (a woman whose day job of 15+ years has been in marketing and public relations) decided to write a romantic comedy with a heroine who works in marketing and public relations.

It was a real stretch.

Not only that, but I have a lifelong fondness for whip-smart, nerdy boys with a great sense of humor and a healthy dose of social awkwardness to match my own.

Guess who the hero is in my new book, The Fix Up?

Technically, I guess we're all calling Ben Langley a "sexy geek," but make no mistake — this man is my favorite kind of nerd. The kind who thinks introducing a woman to the worst sci-fi movie ever made (Plan 9 From Outer Space) and then teaching her to thumb wrestle is an effective form of seduction (it is). The kind of nerd who can turn a woman on by talking about the chemical properties of fukalite (is it hot in here?)

Anyway, I hope you enjoy my newest romantic comedy, which is the first book in a new series called First Impressions. The whole series will be based around a marketing and public relations firm by that name (did I mention the laziness?) and the second book will come out in June and star a character you meet in The Fix Up.

You can nab The Fix Up here for only $2.99:

I was supremely lazy just today. While pimping your book on my blog, I linked back here instead of linking to all the places it can be purchased. (Hey, you already have the links in place.)

I've changed my desk chair in for a recliner. Mostly due to back pain, but there's some lazy in there too. I work for home and have fallen asleep in the nice, cushy chair during break once in awhile.

Loved this book, now where is The Hang Up?? There is a snippet in the back of The Fix Up about it, but I can't find it. Tease!!!
