Cover for books.

Choosing a book cover can be a completely daunting task. Countless hours searching for the right image to speak to you, then to only have half of the effort in designing done. Then comes the task of turning it into an actual book cover. Some people like to higher graphic artists to do this task for them; me, not so much. I like to have total control of the outcome, thus taking my obsession to a whole new level of crazy. So, that's my biggest struggle right now is finding that perfect image.

I need some inspiration to smack me in the face.

Pizza and writing.

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.

Behind the times in apps for my phone.

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.

Fighting the FB battle.

It seems that as the time goes on getting people to interact on Facebook is like pulling teeth. A couple likes here and there, but that's about it.

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.

Photo shoot/Cover reveal!?!?

So the photo shoot for "Bar 49" has been rained out twice. As much as I enjoy two wet bodies rubbing on each other, sometimes it does not make for a sexy cover. Hopefully this weekend will provide better results. Maybe a cover reveal next month? Anyone want to help? I really hate organizing. Maybe it's the ADD in me......................but did you know I like shiny things?

This is me begging.............................

Hey friends! Here is my regularly scheduled beg that if you have read either 'Hot Southern Mess' and/or 'Cheap & Classy' is you could possibly leave a few short sentences on Amazon. It's crucial for authors to get feedback on what the masses like/didn't like/ and or even hated. 

So once again, THANK YOU for taking the time and giving the novels a shot. I appreciate each and every one of you tremendously.  T.A. Hardenbrook

Book number three anyone?

Don't forget that Molly and Reid's story is not over with 'Cheap & Classy'. There is still more questions to be answered, sex toys to be bought, and even a special event in their upcoming future. So watch out for the final installment in the 'Hide Your Crazy' this winter!

The correct version is finally LIVE!

The *Correct* version of Amazon is finally live, after uploading the wrong one two days ago and having it get stuck!

Wednesday, June 11, 2014

My oops.................

**Alright** We have finally got to the disaster of 'Cheap & Classy'' release. Upon uploading the file, I somehow clicked the wrong file, uploading a previous version that I had been working on with the editor. When I went back to fix it, the old file was still Live, thus uploading the current version should have deleted version number one. 

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.............well it is hard to explain. Please, if you have any questions, just shoot me a message.

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

Damn you autocorrect.........................

So, apparently since I write mostly in Microsoft Word, and the program likes to automatically correct things for me, a name was changed slightly in the end of "Cheap & Classy". It was brought to my attention tonight, and is currently being fixed on Amazon, and the corrected version should be available tomorrow. Sorry for the confusion (It is not a huge mistake, but could be noticeable), and I hope you all enjoy the novel!

1 More Day

Can you believe the release for 'Cheap & Classy' is only a day away?
Don't forget that the novel will be on sale for $0.99 for the first 24 hours!

So grab a copy and enjoy another round of Molly and Reid.

1 Week Count Down!

'Cheap & Classy' is officially a week away from being released! I'm so excited to share book two with you all in 7 Freaking Days!

On another uber cool note, I have picked the models (yes, I did say plural) for the next novel I am working on "Bar 49" cover! Hopefully, my photographer will be able to shoot for it's release late September!
