Welcome to Teaser Tuesday, where I share snippets from new and past releases and works-in-progress, and sometimes tempt author buddies into doing the same.
What’s been happening in the Hein house? A lot of staring at the computer, that’s what. I’m deep into Serenity’s Song (working title) and having a great time. This is an enemies-to-lovers story so forcing Serenity and Jesse together against their wills is very satisfying.
Authors can be mean like that.
I’m also getting excited about Scarlett and the Model Man’s release. Last week I picked up my bookmark order from the printer and haven’t been able to stop grinning at them. They look gorgeous!
All personally signed print books purchased direct from me will receive one of these bookmarks in their pack – details on how to order will be in this week’s newsletter and later posted on my social media and this website.
If you want to be the first to get your order in, make sure you’re part of the cool gang and join my reader group here.
I also have some events coming up where you’ll also be able to score a Scarlett and the Model Man bookmark. First, on February 29th, at I’ll be at Lakeview Café, Speers Point NSW, with Fiona McArthur, Trish Morey and Jaye Ford for Coffee, Cake and Contemporary Women’s Stories. Details here.
And on Sunday, March 8th, I’ll be at Sydney’s Castlereagh Hotel for an Australian Romantic Rendezvous, a booksigning and reader event featuring special international guests Darynda Jones and Susan Donovan, along with a line-up of your favourite local authors. More info here.
Right. It’s Teaser Tuesday teaser time.
It’s only ONE MONTH until Scarlett and the Model Man releases. Wheeeeee!
A milestone that needs celebration, and what better way to celebrate than with a bottle of champagne? Oh, sorry. I meant with a teaser. The champagne is for later.
Just a teensy teaser, mind. I wouldn’t want to spoil your future reading fun.
In this scene, Scarlett is lunching with Audrey Wallace (aka Granny B) and discussing her difficulties with finding her perfect model.
‘I’d offer my grandson, Digby, but Jasmine—his girlfriend, although I do wish they would hurry up and announce their engagement; this faffing about has gone on long enough, in my opinion—would be even more disapproving than Emily.’
‘Too pretty, anyway,’ said Scarlett, setting her chin on her fist. ‘I need someone good-looking without being pretty. Rough but not ragged. A perfectly imperfect man, like …’ She tried to think of an actor who’d match her criteria and instead caught sight of a man the size of a small country walking past the restaurant’s floor-to-ceiling windows. She pointed her fork in his direction. ‘He’d do.’
He he. So… who is the giant man walking past the window? You’ll have to read the book and find out!
