Release Day for Dangerous Beauty by Author Rhonda Brewers

New Release Alert


Fellow Newfoundland author, Rhonda Brewers is celebrating the release of Dangerous Beauty this week. It’s book four in the popular O’Connor Brothers Romance series, a long-awaited addition to the steamy collection. If you’re an avid Romance reader and love gorgeous backdrops like that of the rocky Newfoundland shores, then you NEED to grab this book!



When you come from a privileged family, you’re expected to follow a particular path in life. Unless you’re Emily Bradshaw. Defying her father, Emily turned down a full scholarship to Dalhousie University. Instead, she followed her dream and opened her own salon in the small town of Hopedale with her friend. She’s happy. Then her mother vanishes. Her father receives threatening messages and hires Newfoundland Security Services to protect his children. Emily doesn’t like the idea, especially when the man that walks into her salon dressed in a black leather jacket makes her weak in the knees. Emily knows she’s in danger but not the kind her father is worried about.

Keith O’Connor isn’t expecting his newest security job to be anything out of the ordinary. Then he walks into Snippy Gals, a beauty salon in Hopedale. Keith gets the shock of his life when an auburn haired beauty turns to face him. Emily is defiant, sassy, and her sexy curves have him in a complete spin. Fighting his feelings for her becomes almost impossible, but when Emily’s mother is found, a family secret is revealed turning Emily’s life upside down. Can Keith help her cope and keep her out of the clutches of a vengeful stranger?

Have You Read Killer Me Yet?


killer me psychological thriller book


Killer Me is my Psychological Thriller about a girl named Alice. A loner, a bit of a punk, and fresh out of the foster system, Alice sticks to her small daily routines and needs nothing more than the companionship of her best friend and great dane, Bogey.

But when the news become flooded with reports of a resurfaced serial killer running around Vancouver city, Alice can’t help but notice. Especially when a strange man keeps popping up wherever she goes. Soon, Alice realizes that this man is stalking her and could very well be The Vancouver Phantom.

This suspicion is validated when he approaches her on the train, an action that catches the attention of the police. They then use Alice as bait to lure the killer in but when Detective Murphy discovers that The Vancouver Phantom may actually be Alice’s estranged father…things change.

Check out this awesome video review of Killer Me by Bestselling Author Charlene Carr!

And, I can’t reveal TOO much right now, but Killer Me is being considered for a film adaptation! (yay!) So, if you enjoy reading the book before seeing the movie, then I suggest you scurry over to Amazon or your closest bookstore and grab a copy! You can even request it from your local library!

RELEASE DAY! Then She Danced by Janice Godin


janice godin, then she danced, womens fiction, contemporary romance

Gorgeous Women’s Fiction with a Dash of Romance

One of the things I love most about being an author is that there’s no competition. I come from a world of high end Interior Design, and there’s nothing more cutthroat, believe me. Being a full-time writer has it’s ups and downs, but at least there’s an amazing community of like-minded people who love to support one another.

That’s why I’m sharing the release of this amazing Women’s Fiction/Contemporary Romance novel by my author bestie Janice Godin. If you love a beautifully woven story that shows a woman overcoming her a tragic past, then this is the book for you.

Then She Danced is set in rural Newfoundland and follows the story of Kathleen as she seeks refuge from an abusive relationship, finds comfort in an old journal she uncovers, and finally learns to dance again.

Get your copy today for just $.99! And hurry, that’s a release day deal!

Aspiring Authors! Lend Me Your Ears!




Being a professional writer and author is tough stuff, let me tell you. But it’s one of the most rewarding things I’ve ever done with my life. So many aspects of what I do bring me joy on a daily basis and one of them is networking with aspiring authors and budding writers.

Lucky me, I get to co-operate the very first ever writing group here at my local library where I can help writers achieve their goals and hone their craft. Alongside my amazing author bestie, Janice Godin, I’ll get to meet face-to-face with the members of our group and learn their doubts, questions, goals, and help them get to where they need to be.

Plus, we get to talk about books! My second favorite thing in the whole world!

So, for those of you who are local to Newfoundland, The Kindale Writing Group will meet once every month on a Wednesday evening. Our very first session is this Wednesday, Nov. 9th, 2016. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to join! Just contact me here.

And for those of you outside of Newfoundland and around the world, I’ll be compiling every session into helpful notes to post here on my blog. So, literally, everyone can benefit from the things being learned and discussed in our meetings.


A Day in the Life of an Author!


Oi! It’s tough stuff being an independent author, but it’s also one of the most rewarding choices I’ve made in my career thus far. Like most authors, I wish I could just sit and write all day long and for that to be enough. Sadly, my work day consists of marketing, research, emails, paperwork, meetings with designers, etc. All of that has to comes before my writing, making it a 70/30 split between the two (30% being for writing). But I’m grateful each and every day that I get to do what I love and readers love it in return! Thanks for everything and bare with me while I navigate the abyss of this website and techy tech stuff =)
