What's new with Ashleigh?

In my last newsletter, I decided to start featuring your book blogs in my newsletter. Would you like it to be you? Send me a quick email to let me know.

Last week, I read a book that got me excited to return to author fairs. The author shared some of his stories about selling his books at comicons. Since reading this book, I've been thinking a lot about hte types of fairs I want to attend, both as a reader and as an author.

So, that brings me to this week's question. What kind of conventions have you attended? Have you ever bought books at such events? I'd love to hear your stories! Send me an email.

A Heartbeat Away From You

A Heartbeat Away From You

A YA romance about second chances

Ballplayer Ali risks her heart both on the field...and off.

After a daredevil play on the baseball field leads to a four-minute long cardiac arrest, seventeen-year-old Ali Benton is lucky to be alive. Now she wants to make the most of her second chance—and she’s not going to let a pesky little pacemaker, or her helicopter dad, slow her down.

Between chairing multiple school clubs and working two jobs to help his single mother pay the bills, Max Delaney has got every second of every day planned. His childhood nemesis, Ali, doesn’t figure into any of them. But when her overprotective father offers him cash to keep an eye on her and steer her away from baseball, his plans change.

Ali can’t figure out why Max, the condescending know-it-all, is sticking to her side like Krazy Glue, and Max can barely tolerate headstrong Ali. But opposites attract, and before long, fighting turns to kissing. Even as sparks fly, the secrets they’ve been keeping threaten to tear them apart. When Max learns Ali’s been putting herself in harm’s way and playing ball in secret, he struggles with how to tell her father. If he tattles, he’ll lose her trust. If he doesn’t, he may lose her heart…in more ways than one.

All's Fair in Love and Sports

“That was the biggest mistake I’ve ever made in my life.”

Olympic gold medalist, Gil Snider, learns the hard way that it’s lonely at the top. If the other snowboarders at the Park City Mountain weren’t jealous before he returned from China, they were green with envy after he started dating the hottest girl around, champion snowboarder, Veronika Forster.

Veronika lived a very different life before moving from Austria to Park City, Utah. She left behind her family, her carefree lifestyle, and her long-time boyfriend. Meeting the most famous snowboarder in the world was such a rush that she got caught up in the moment and crossed a line she didn’t realize had been drawn.

Gil’s rejection stung, and Veronika vowed to keep her chin up like the confident woman she thought herself to be. Until the day she was no longer strong and she needed Gil’s love more than ever.

Only later did Gil learn that his biggest mistake may be the key to saving his own life.

Her Brother's Best Friend Steamy Series

Forbidden Fruit Is The Most Tempting…


Sydney Elliot is off-limits. I’ve known that for years. Then why can’t I take my eyes off her? I thought I put my forbidden attraction for her in the past, but when she turns up on my doorstep looking for a job, I’m faced with a horrifying realization – I’m in love with my best friend’s little sister.


Ever since Nate broke my heart all those years ago, I’ve kept my distance… but I can’t avoid him forever. My crush has blossomed into full-blown lust – and this time, I want him more than ever, even if it means getting involved in a secret relationship that could throw both our lives into chaos.

When Sydney is forced to rebuild her life after a disastrous breakup, she finds herself roped into working in the sunny city of Miami alongside her brother’s wealthy best friend. There’s only one big problem: she’s had a not-so-secret crush on him for as long as she can remember. If her brother finds out, he’ll go ballistic – and even though they’re playing with fire, her feelings for Nate are getting stronger by the day.

Nate walked away from her once. Can he find the strength to refuse her again? Or will their feelings be too strong for them to resist?
