debut release of one my all-time favorite people, Ruthie Knox.
I met Ruthie early last year in the Romance Junkies writing contest we had both entered. After reading her entry, I totally fan-girled her on my comment sheet (the first round was judged by romance readers and the other contestants) and gave her my email address in case she ever wanted to chat about writing.
Imagine my surprise when she actually emailed me as opposed to thinking I was a total nut job! (I totally fooled her. heh heh heh) I’m happy to say we became fast friends. I’ve done some beta reading for her (mostly I just gush about how great her stuff is) and she’s taught me so much, like:
- How to use “urtext” in a sentence
- How to properly place a comma
- How to cut 10K+ words from my manuscript.
But the real purpose of this post is not for me to go on and on about how totally orsum she is. It’s to give you a taste of her contemporary romance, Ride with Me. This is the book that she entered the RJ contest with (and won 1st place, btw) which made me all ga-ga for her. Below you can read the first chapter and at the end you can click on one of the icons to purchase your very own copy for a mere $2.99.
If you missed my interview with Tom, the hero from this book, you can check it out HERE. I absolutely love Tom. He’s grouchy and supah-haht. LOL
