Butts In Chairs & Free Books

So today I am beyond pleased to {finally} introduce you to my butt-in-chair partner {oftentimes referred to as my writing-accountability-partner}, authoress Robin Allen {her blog}!
Robin Allen, my BiC partner,
published author
Butt-in-chair {BiC} partner: An amazing person with whom I share writing accountability! That means that I set a time goal for the day/week, and so does she. And then we email every day to make sure that we're staying on track. I do not know what I'd do without this!
Robin is a great BiC partner because she's super encouraging...and dedicated. And her BiC-ing has definitely paid off. She's already published one book, If You Can't Stand the Heat, with Midnight Ink publishing {free on Kindle--keep reading}. And her second book, Stick a Fork In It {also with Midnight Ink}, is coming out THIS MONTH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I wasn't sure what to expect with her first book. After all, I read too much YA for my own good and not much from other genres. However, I was curious about the main character, Poppy Markham--she's a public health inspector, and it's her job to make sure that restaurants follow the rules that keep your food healthy {my dad worked in restaurants, so I know all about health inspectors and the, um, adoration that they inspire, haha}. Also, I am the last person to turn down a murder mystery.

I would give you my copy...but it has
my name in it. Yay signings!
To say that I was pleasantly surprised would be an understatement. I had a friend over that weekend and 1) I kept feeling guilty about sneaking away to read If You Can't Stand the Heat, and 2) my friend kept stealing it away from me!

There's plenty of suspense--murder, hello! But what I wasn't expecting was the humor! I laughed out loud! And it takes a lot for me to laugh out loud while reading. {I'm not a very outwardly emotional person.} Plus, it's clean. Double-awesome. And I swooned over the guys...triple-awesome.

You want to read it now, don't you? How would you like to read it for free? That's right--If You Can't Stand the Heat is FREE on Kindle RIGHT NOW! {The "real book" is also on Amazon here, if that's more your style. Either way, you want to add this to your Goodreads list if you like humor, suspense, clean romance...or all of the above.}

Go. Download. Read. And then get ready for Stick a Fork In It on July 8! {Pre-order it on Amazon! Add it to Goodreads!}
