Worth the Risk is FREE at Your Favorite Ebook Store

Who doesn’t like free ebooks? Especially if you don’t know the author. I’ve given free and low-low cost ebooks out for some time as a way to introduce myself to readers or as a gift to my email subscribers and SweetHarte street team.

Now, I’ve made one of those books available for free at the top ebook retailers.

In Worth the Risk, Max and Madeleine meet, but it’s not love at first sight.

There isn’t a woman in the world who wouldn’t want to get up close and personal with sexy, self-made millionaire bachelor, Max Delecoeur, except Madeleine Hainsworth. Madeleine knows all about men like Max; rich, arrogant and willing to do anything and hurt anyone to achieve profits.

Max is initially intrigued by Madeleine’s disdain of him, until she accuses him of business practices that involve child labor. He demands Madeleine show him her proof and then enlists her as a guide to the silica mines of Nigeria.

Together they put their lives in danger as they trek through the jungle to expose child labor abuse, but as attraction and respect draw them together, will a chance at love be worth the risk?

NaNoWriMo and Valentine Book Five

NaNoWriMo 2014What do National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) and the Valentines have in common? I’ll be writing the draft of the fifth Valentine book for NaNaoWrimo, that’s what! In it we’ll see what happens between Daniel and Kate … if anything … and learn about secrets in Daniel’s past that even Tess doesn’t know about. Plus we may learn the truth about Jack’s father and of course, Jack and Tess will do what they do best… if you know what I mean.

I want to thank all of you who love Jack and Tess and enjoy their stories. I have many more planned!

In other news, I just sent an email to an agent for help in selling a manuscript that has been sitting with an editor for 20 months. I guess it shows just how patient I can be. I have a Delecoeur novella submitted to an e-publisher that I hope to hear back on within the next month or so.

I’m also working on something entirely new, which I think will fit into the New Adult category. It involves vampires, but I’m working on a new take and am researching real-vampire lore (if “real” is the right word) to create their history.

So Much to Write, So Little Time

I’m very excited about the initial interest in Deadly Valentine and Endangered. Feedback has been positive, especially for Endangered, which is a different kind of romantic mystery. Instead of coming together during the story or rediscovering their love, the Delecoeurs are 100% in love and committed. I was wondering if readers would find a story in which the conflict rests completely on the circumstances — someone is out to kill Madeleine — and not on what will happen to the relationship interesting. So far, people have found it “refreshing” and are asking for the next story.

This brings a new, yet welcome problem…what to focus on publishing next. I’m eager for Microsoft or Apple or some other tech company to invent a gadget that will allow me to plug my brain directly into my computer. This gadget would make it fast to get my ideas downs and first drafts written. I have no shortage of stories for Max and Madeleine, Tess and Jack, and even new characters that aren’t published. But there is only so much time in the day and currently, my fiction writing is second to my ‘making  a living writing’. Then there is the question of what do I work on first? Do I write the new Delecoeur mystery or do I edit the next Valentine books, which are on their fourth edits? Can I do both? These are questions I’m grappling with as move from a writing hobbiest to professional writer. Perhaps I need to ask you the reader…which story do you want to see next? Delecoeur or Old Flames Never Die – Valentine Book 2?

Valentine and Delecoeur Worlds on Pinterest

It’s hard to keep up with all the social media resources these days. I barely have time to Tweet and Facebook, much less write and take care of the family. But I succumb to the pressure and joined Pinterest. It seemed like a fun way to share my concepts of the worlds in which I write. So far I’ve got images for both Valentine and Delecoeur worlds, writer tips and inspiration, my favorite books and movies, and some of the most romantic couples in history. I hope you’ll check it out! Jenna Harte Pinterest
