Guest: Lissa Matthews

Hi friends! As you see we’ve got Lissa Matthews visiting with us today! When Brandy emailed me about it I was like “of course! Anything for you!” And here we are! The time has come 😀 [And sidenote – beyond that, the two of them are awesome because the post was sent to me all formatted and beautiful! <3]

And confession – I know this is about Twisted Up, but Melting Jane has a great cover, and it’s only $0.99 right now!

So, it’s my first print book. I don’t think it’s quite sunk in yet either. Even when the books arrived up on my doorstep… I opened the box and pet the new shiny with my fingertips, then picked them up, flipped through them, even inhaled between the pages. It’s still not sunk in. It still doesn’t seem as real as it probably should…

It’s never been about print for me, not once I discovered ebooks. Being published at all was the dream. It didn’t matter digital or paper, it was really only and all about writing and finding a home for my stories.

I mostly read digital books now. I rarely buy print for myself and a few of the authors who were auto-buy in print for me aren’t anymore. But I also know there are many readers out there who want and crave print books so I’m thrilled for them that they’ll have Twisted Up. I mean, if for no other reason than to lick the cover *wink*

But now I am in print and… I think when does hit me, I’ll be over the moon.

One rope. Three days. And two hearts on the line.

Justin has had enough. Ella, the woman who healed his broken heart, has been cancelling on him for two months straight. Sure, she’s busy with her job, which has her traveling far and wide. But that never stopped her from sharing nights of trivia, long conversations and blazing hot sex—until now. Truth to tell, he misses their easy friendship, the way her sighs fill his ear as he fills her body.

What he can’t figure out is, what’s changed?

At work, Ella finds it easy to talk to rooms full of strangers. Once back at her lonely apartment, though, she’s back to her painfully shy self—until Justin. Their chance meeting grew over the months into a year-long affair, but she can’t shake the feeling that rejection and pain are just around the corner. Best thing to do? End it now, before their intimacy digs too deep.

Suddenly he’s at her door with a length of neon-green rope and a naughty proposition, daring her to say no. Just how good could it be? There’s only one way to find out…

Warning: The sheets are tangled, the hat is crumpled, and the jeans are worn low on the hips. The cowboy is hot, determined, and helpless in the face of bunny slippers. Readers may need extra batteries to get this one out of their system.

There are 8 stops on this blog tour, the final one being my own blog. One commentor from each stop on the tour will be chosen for presents and giveaways. There will be everything from signed copies of books to a signed black and white poster to rope and coffee bowls.

Thank you for having me and letting me tempted and tease you with Justin and Ella. If you wish to find out more about me, please visit me in one or all of the following places: Website | Blog | Twitter | Facebook | Pinterest

    Congrats on hitting print, Lissa! How exciting it’ll be to have your words to hold 🙂 While I do read far more e-books now than ever, I still love the experience of reading in hard copy, and I love my keepers that way 🙂

    Congratulations on your first printing! I don’t really read hard copies of books anymore, unless it’s a very expensive one and then I’ll try to get it at the library. I used to buy my favorite authors in hard-back copy because I wanted them to last forever and then my husband got tired of packing them up for our various moves, which is where the kindle came in. Who doesn’t love a hot cowboy story? Twisted Up sounds wonderful!

    Congrats on the print release Lissa.
    As much as I’m loving ebooks lately there’s still some books I have to have in print.

    Congrats, Lissa!! I could imagine how exciting that must be! Did you have a say in that yummy cover? Love the blurb!
    I recently picked up Melting Jane and can’t wait to read it.

    Hurrah – thrilled that this book is in print – I haven’t converted to an eReader – still like mine in print. That cover really caught my eye – I’ll go check more about Lissa’s book now – Thanks for the introduction!
