Sneak Peek: Silks and Sand

Today we have a sneak peek from the contemporary romance novel by K. Rowe, Silks and Sand.

Racing horses and racing hearts; it’s all part of the Stoddard dynasty. Evan Stoddard inherited an ages-old farm in the heart of Kentucky horse country. He’s a winner in many respects: winning with horses, winning with love, and a winning smile. And he’s won a beautiful wife: Suzanne. But his winning ways will be upturned with the arrival of a new horse, War Monger; and a female jockey, who sends every man on the farm into a tailspin, and sends his marriage into a downward spiral.

Silks and Sand is available through, Barnes & Noble, Smashwords, and Amazon UK.

Here is an excerpt from Silks and SandContinue reading “Sneak Peek: Silks and Sand”

Featured Author: Christie Meierz

Christie Meierz is the author of the Amazon bestsellers The Marann, Into Tolari Space, and Daughters of Suralia. Born in Chicago, she grew up in southern California and has traveled extensively with her family all over the United States. She now lives in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and can say that she has at least set foot and eaten a meal in all 50 States and several of the U.S. Territories.

Christie isn’t certain when she started writing, but she thinks it was in second grade, when she was seven years old. None of her early writings survive, for which she is profoundly grateful. It didn’t occur to her to publish any of her work until the spring of 2012, when she set fingers to keyboard while recovering from a serious illness and started writing a story that would later become The Marann. Before the summer was over, she’d written the basis of three novels and a half dozen shorter stories.

Going indie seemed like the logical choice at the time and proved to be the best one, giving her a great deal of freedom to decide where her writing is going and how it’s presented. She loves to hear from readers as they discover the worlds she’s created.

A Retreat from Writing

Welcome to The Learning Curve. This is where I chronicle my adventures as a new writer. The goal is to inspire you to put that bag of chips down, step away from the television, and tell the world a good story.

A Retreat from Writing

Summer is coming! Yeah, okay. I actually prefer winter, but I know many of my fellow scribblers like the warmer weather. Some may even look for a writers’ retreat this time of year in a remote and desolate locale with the hope of writing without any distractions. A few brave souls may even bring their laptops along on a family vacation. By the way, good luck with that. Personally, this approach has never caused anything but angst in my world. This year was the only exception. Continue reading “A Retreat from Writing”
