That means an early release date in March is looking like a strong possibility.
Any blogs that reviewed the first two want in on this action?

I hope to have the novel finished, to the editor, and uploaded on Amazon Mid February. It will be hard to say goodbye to these crazy, wild characters.......but I have faith that another one of my upcoming series might spark your attention as well.
But.............until then.........here is the first chapter. Enjoy, tell your friends, and don't forget to check back in for updates on release date!

I absolutely loved the show for the first three seasons, then it seemed to get a little loose in the writing, and while I have watched since the beginning, I was no longer enjoying it like I had been.
Season 7 seemed to come full circle, starting to tie up those gazillion different story lines (what I personally thought was the downfall of the show, too much going on at times), and the clubs hierarchy finally coming to light. That being said, I was enjoying the show again, and faithfully waiting for the last episode where it all would end.
*SPOILER* Stop reading now if you have yet to watch the episode.
At last, it was 10 pm in Washington, and I had stayed away from all previous FB posts about what was happening on the east coast. I do feel the finale was well written/done, however was not pleased with the ending. I get the justification of Jax having to die. Everything comes full circle and the damage he has caused along the way basically lead to the decision of ending his life. I get the symbolism in riding off in the hills and getting taken out by the MAC truck, however poetic or not, I kinda felt it was a cop out.
I wanted something more. I knew he had to die, but that final scene just didn't sit right with me. But, none the less and great show (minus a couple of dragging seasons), and ultimately I will miss the Tuesday night time slot it occupied on my DVR.

“I don’t care if she’s giving birth to a freaking two headed purple alien named George. That woman has no right to call in the fucking middle of the night and demand him to bring her pickles that come in the squatty jar.” Throwing my phone across the bar top, I cringed when I heard it shatter on the hardwood floor.
“Well, now I’m only speaking in technical terms, but I think she does have the right to call him.” Megan winced for the impact of my verbal onslaught, knowing damn well the comment she made would push me over the edge this morning.
“Well, fuck. I guess the tramp can call him. But, to demand pickles in the small jar opposed to just grabbing whatever is on the shelf is absolutely absurd.” Opening the fridge, my eyes land on a large jar stuffed amongst the crap on the top shelf. “Give me your phone,” I demand, letting the fridge close with a smile.
Snatching the phone Megan had offered out to me, I quickly dialed Danielle, knowing she will be completely down with this genius plan of mine. “So, the bitch wants pickles. I’m going to give her pickles. Who do I call to get a hundred cases of pickled asparagus delivered?”

However, today isn't going to be one of those days. Sorry, but i'm saving all those wonderful little moments that make your insides squirm for myself. Call me selfish, but I'm going to enjoy what I've been writing these last couple weeks for myself.

When I first started my author page on FB, it seemed to work really well. I supplemented with my blog and Goodreads, and my novel got out there fairly well. Now, it seems as if I'm posting on FB to an empty audience. Giveaways only reach a handful of people, offers are never claimed, and unfortunately it's hard to get the novel out there.
I absolutely love my latest release. It's about a love story that grows over time. No, it's not an automatic attraction kind of thing, but more of the story on how their relationship got started. Life isn't perfect, and for my two main characters that couldn't be more of the truth.
So, if you haven't grabbed a copy, I encourage you to do so. Give it a read, and remember it's not the typical love story where you dive right into their relationship, it's their journey on how they got there.
If you love it, share it with your friends, if you don't then I hope another one of my novels speak to you better. I'll always keep writing as a way to tell the stories whirling around in my head, and I hope that my latest lets your mind take off in adventure.

I need some inspiration to smack me in the face.

So, as some of you know I'm on a diet. Technically a lifestyle change, since I must change my mind set for the rest of my life. But, every now and then, I getting a little craving. Last night's feast was pizza. Glorius Pizza Hut pizza.
Now, most people could have one slice and be done. But, no. Not me. I ate three, then verbally spewed all over a working manuscript.
This morning when I looked back over it , I wondered if I had been drunk. Pizza drunk is a dangerous thing I tell ya.

So, laying in bed this morning, I wondered if there was an app for Blogger. Low and behold, ta-da, of course there was.
Needless to say, I'm apparently behind the times. But, now I get to spend way more time with you all! I'll consider this fate, if nothing else then sheer luck that my brain and phone came together at the right moment.

I love the interaction with other readers, authors, and fans. Won't you please talk with me? It's getting rather lonely talking to myself, not to mention people start looking at me crazy.

However, that was not the case. So, I apologize for my screw up earlier, and Amazon is working on deleting the old file, so the new one will post. Once again, I apologize for the mix up, and hope you give the story a chance, when the correct version is in place. It will not affect the content, just editing issues that were changed between the copies.
I understand that there are some questions from book one to book two, and I promise the answers are in there, just maybe not blown up in a chapter heading But, the ending does leave you with a cliffhanger or sorts................kinda....
Tomorrow morning the correct version should be available for purchase, and you are more then welcome to return the copy you have already purchased for a cleaner version of 'Cheap & Classy'.
I hope you all enjoy the story, and watch out for "Invisible Crown', book three in the 'Hide Your Crazy' series coming this winter.
Much love, T.A. Hardenbrook
