Debut coming soon

I'm so excited to announce my debut will be out Dec. 6 with Loose, Id. It's funny how things work out. CAN'T FAKE THIS started out on a whim. At the last minute, I decided to enter this 10,000 word contest. I’d written spicy mainstream, but this was my first dive into erotic waters. I didn’t win the contest, but after having what I thought was a good start, I added some more words and low and behold, this erotic became the first manuscript I sold.

The story is about a divorcee ready to reenter the dating world. Anna Ryan is determined to be the best “product on the market,” which requires a lot more experience so she propositions sexy police officer Chase Harris to teach her how to make hot, passionate love as opposed to just having sex. He takes it a step further, instructing each lesson based on The Twelve Days of Christmas.

The blog tour kicks off soon on there will be a huge blog party on my website Dec. 6 where 12 authors will be doing 12 give-aways to go along with the 12 Days of Christmas theme in the story. Best sellers & RITA nominees from various genres will be there!

So do you have a story about a book or something that came to fruition but never should have? Something that happened because you acted spontaneous and it changed your course of life? I'd love to hear about it!

That sounds delightful! Congratulations on the release of your first erotic story!!


Wynter Daniels said...

Congrats! I love the concept.
I started writing my first book on a whim. The project took on a life of its own and had many incarnations prior to being published.

Congrats, Casey!! I like the "assertive" woman theme with a sexy hero.

I wrote my short story, "Breaking the Rules", about a woman who can't ask for anything--in bed or at work--after watching a show about how women often don't ask for a raise at work while men do.

It made me wonder if women also have the same problem in bed...

Congrats, Casey! We're sharing a release date at Loose Id so that's pretty fun! :) I'm definitely going to pick up CAN'T FAKE THIS - sounds right up my alley!

Casey Crow said...

Thanks everyone. Ashlynn & Wynter, it was a fun story to write and definitely has my trademark sassy, southern flair.

Jina, love the cover of your Christmas book!

Cari, how cool is that? Do you have your cover yet? I don't!

Callie Croix said...

Casey, that sounds so awesome! Love the premise and the story behind it. Make sure you post buy links for us when it comes out!

Cari Quinn said...

Yeah, it's fun to share a release date! I just got my cover recently. It's on my blog if you'd like to take a look. Can't wait to see yours - and read the book! :)

Congratulations! It sounds great!

For me, my first book Samantha and the Detective was a little like that. The h/h were actually secondary characters in a book I'd been playing around with writing. The h.hwere kinda boring, but these secondary characters had "it." So, I scrapped the other story and the other h/h and wrote a book with the other couple instead!
