A Very Happy Diwali To You
From Shane, Lena, and Me! ❤️
I’m wiring this edition of The Writer Gal Letter listening to Are You Ready For It? by Taylor Swift. And it is such an incredibly appropriate song for my mood right now. You see, Postmate, I haven’t been ready for this year, for this month, these books I'm writing for me and you.
Real talk: I have been tearing my hair out trying to figure out my writing schedule along with some much-needed downtime. Because so many MANY things are afoot by the end of this year that I hope skyrocket my books and the love you have for me.
So, without further ado, here is all the tea I’m spilling in this TWGL.
My two-year labor of love and tears is finally HERE. I sent the ARCs last week and I’m so heartened by all the love that’s already pouring in. Both for CLAIM and RUIN, the books in the Bastard Billionaires series.
Here’s the blurb for RUIN once again. Just in case you hagen’t been able to check it out still.
Billionaire for hire, Shane McRae has too many ghosts haunting him from his time working covert black ops.
Now he's out, but he isn't truly free. Tortured by all the bloodshed.
His most forbidden ghost is the tempting girl he'd once loved recklessly. Except, Lena has become a defiant princess intent on changing the world. And it is his job to protect this rebellious, grown-up Lena from an assassin's bullet.
But, the more time he spends with the contrary princess, the more his desires overrun his objectivity. His protector oath.
And all he wants is for his best friend's little sister to be his only Ruin.
Princess Lena Heinrickson has many sins to atone for.
She's been the Party Girl Princess for too long. She's hurt her favorite brother. She wants to be anyone but herself.
So, Lena runs away from the castle and tries to do some good. She doesn't count on a relentless tracker finding her half a world away - Shane.
The hot and beautiful man she'd once loved so hopelessly was a lie. The real Shane is the one before her. Remote, cold... Forbidden.
He is still tantalizing, but Lena knows not to trust her desires.
With a target on her back, she is forced to live with her enemy 24/7. Unraveling his secrets…Revealing the desperate heart of her bodyguard.
Her older brother's best friend just might be her favorite Ruin.
RUIN is a 100K+ word standalone, interconnected, enemies to lovers, age-gap, slow burn, billionaire romance set in the world of the Bastard Billionaires with a guaranteed Happy Ever After.
