Beachwalk Press Blog Hop... @ellajade1


Happy Anniversary Beachwalk Press! I'm thrilled to have been with this amazing publisher from the beginning!

I'm supposed to tell you my three favorite things I love about being an author. Here goes...

1- I have a platform to get all of those stories, voices, characters and plots out of my head. It can get pretty noisy inside my mind especially when I have multiple plots clawing to get out. Being an author not only helps me channel that energy, but I have the privilege of sharing my worlds with all of you.

2 - During the course of my four year journey I've met some amazingly creative and supportive authors. Writing is a lonely business most of the time. I'm chained to my desk and forced to stare at my laptop for many hours trying to get the words to flow just right. I LOVE my job, but it helps knowing another author is just an instant message or a text a way when you need them. I'm also extremely blessed to have Beachwalk Press in my corner. Through my publishing journey I've hit a few clunkers when it came to publishers. I haven't found one that treats me with the respect, courtesy and professionalism that BWP does. Have I mentioned I LOVE my job ;)

3- The romance community is extremely loyal. When a reader finds you and enjoys your book, I find they will pretty much stick with you. I've been fortunate enough to pick up a fantastic group of readers who check in on me, message me and let me know how my words have brightened their day. If that's not my favorite part than I don't know what is.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you'll visit the rest of my Beachwalk Press authors as they share their favorite things about being an author.

Ella's Prize

A signed paperback copy of Stealing His Heart along with some swag!



Will the bad-boy pitcher strike out when it comes to love? 


Shy music teacher Sophia Ballis has sworn off men. After a bad experience with a college jock she decided it was better to be alone than to get burned again. She focused on her education and now her new job at a local private school. 



Professional baseball pitcher Paxton Hughes is a player both on and off the field. He's signed to the Kingston Crushers to bring home the coveted championship title. Nothing can get in his way. Serious relationships don't mix with a life on the road and he never loses focus on the game. One-night stands are his specialty for a reason. 



While out jogging one spring morning, the two collide, setting their course in motion. Pax is immediately drawn to the unassuming beauty. Sophia is aware of his reputation and decides one night of meaningless sex with the attractive Texas charmer is just what she needs to get over her self-imposed dry spell. Pax has more than a one-night stand on his mind, but will his bad-boy persona and demanding schedule ruin any chances of a happily ever after? 



Content Warning: contains explicit sex and adult content 

GRAND PRIZE

 Beachwalk Press is offering a $100.00 Amazon or Barnes and Noble Gift Card (winner's choice).

Be sure to hit all the stops along the hop and leave comments to win!

  2. Great post! And it's very true that us readers can be super loyal! =) I know for me if I read a story & I like it, I will try to read more of the authors work. And if I get the chance to chat with that author & get to know them better, & they are the nicest person to me,... then I try to read everything of theirs & spread the word about them to everyone! =)

    Thank you for the giveaway! I really love that cover & the story sounds great! I'm adding this to my TBR list. =)

    Take care & I hope you have a great weekend!
