Hi, all! Bri Clark has a fascinating new story out, and she's touring with Bewitching Tours. I brought her over here to share a bit about this book and it's Gorgeous-As-Sin cover! (ooh and ahh appropriately, please!)
Bri has something special to tell you all today. And with that, I'm going to turn the blog over to her briefly.
One thing I love about being a romance reader, author, publicist, and there are a ton of us! We love our romance novels. We are a culture, a force within society to be reckoned with. We even create elaborate conferences where we can indulge in fantasy parties and costumes. (See Romantic Times and RomCon) In short we are amazing.
But where do we hang out online that’s just ours? I know there are Yahoo Groups and Facebook groups and Goodreads. A place for all of us where we don’t necessarily have to go through all the social media. Something a little less tedious than those places.
Well I’ve found it.
And the irony is a man who has regaled us with over 2,000 book covers is the one who created it for us. Talk about real life hero. Now before anyone starts thinking I’m trying to sell something. I’m not. I have no interest in this community other than just to have fun and connect with others in the industry. However, the secret is that while it’s there it’s not been fully launched.
So here’s your chance to be some of the first to know about Romance Novel Center. RNC was created by the cover mode Jimmy Thomas. It’s a place where readers, reviewers, authors, and other industry professionals can create profiles and interact. And it’s free.
I know I’ll be there and I’d love to see you there too. This is one of those things where my gut says “I’m glad I’m a part of it before it takes off.”
Thanks, Bri! I'm on RNC too, albeit I haven't had the time to figure out exactly what I'm doing there.
I don't know about the rest of you, but SCENT OF A WITCH sounds incredible. I am so all about witches right now -- they are such a refreshing change to traditional Paranormal Romance. And this excerpt makes me even more interested in moving it to the top of my TBR pile. Here -- take a peek with me!
YOU HAVE JUST READ AN EXCERPT FROM SCENT OF A WITCH~~@~~
Mmm...yes, indeed, I want to know what happens next!
Meanwhile, here's a bit more about Bri!
About The Author:
Bri Clark is a real example of redemption and renewal. Growing penniless in the South, Bri learned street smarts while caring for her brother in a broken home. She watched her mother work several jobs to care for their small family. Once her brother could fend for himself, Bri moved on to a series of bad choices including leaving school and living on her own.
Rebelliousness was a strong understatement to describe those formative years. As a teenager, her wakeup call came from a fight with brass knuckles and a judge that gave her a choice of shaping up or spending time in jail. She took that opportunity and found a way to moved up from the streets. She ended up co-owning an extremely successful construction business. She lived the high life until the real estate crash when she lost everything.
She moved west and found herself living with her husband and 4 kids in a 900 square foot apartment. She now fills her time, writing, blogging, leading a group of frugal shoppers and sharing her southern culture. Her unique background gives her writing a raw sensibility. She understands what it takes to overcome life’s obstacles. She often tells friends, “I can do poor. I’m good at poor. It’s prosperity that I’m not used to.”
Bri and her husband Chris live in Boise. Bri is known as the Belle of Boise for her true southern accent, bold demeanor and hospitable nature.
Bri boasts several positions in the publishing industry. An author, professional reviewer, blogger, and literary strategist she enjoys all aspects of her career from the creation of story to the branding and marketing needed to make her books successful.
