B & E Ever After

Thursday, March 5, 2020
Guess what I never did?!

I never mentioned the release of B&E Ever After on this blog! So, here it is, just six months late.

This is a HANSEL & GRETEL romance.

I know, I know. Hansel & Gretel is not a romance unless you make it really gross and incestual. But I'm super proud of myself in managing to make it both a happily ever after romance with no sibling love matches at all.  Go me!

One of my favorite parts of the story is the banter that goes on between Hayden and Gabby. That was fun to make.

And I already shared this with people on Facebook, but I gotta show you some of the google searches I did while writing this book.

Separately, they're probably not so remarkable. But when you put them together, I think they're hilarious. Makes even me want to scratch my head and say, "What the heck is this story about, anyway?"

So, here are those:

  • How does the Hansel and Gretel story go?
  • How much $ do loggers make?
  • Is faking your own death illegal?
  • What country is Monte Carlo in?
  • What are the best highlights of Monte Carlo?
  • Best hotels in Monte Carlo?
  • Do they sell Skittles in Monte Carlo?
  • What are the most popular terms of endearment in Spanish?
  • Is cocaine chunky?
  • What shoe fashions are currently popular?
  • What are the names of some white-collar crimes?
  • Is there really a diamond-coated car?
  • How do you clean wine from a carpet?
  • How much does it cost to repair an elevator?
  • Where is the most popular place to take a honeymoon?
  • What do you call a person with one leg?
  • In which episode of YOU does Beck find Joe's kill box?
  • What type of cell phone was the most popular twenty years ago?
  • Tell me more about Le Metropole shopping center.
  • What brand of male shoe is the nicest?
  • What's another word for a building's manager?
  • What are those things people with diabetes hook up to them 24 hours a day?
  • How do you take care of an insulin pump?
  • What does a naturalization certificate look like?

In other writing news, I will have TRUST IN LOVE available in two months on May (the) 4th (be with you!). And I'm working on SECRETS THAT WE KEEP, but haven't gotten too far with that yet; I keep coming up with more stories to go with it...so now I have ideas for about four more stories for that universe!

Anyway, hope you enjoy B&E EVER AFTER! Or did enjoy it.




The Revenge Plan by Linda Kage

Tuesday, April 30, 2019


Contemporary New Adult
(The heroine in this story is the daughter to the main characters in PRICELESS)

Available Now!

Haven's just been given the opportunity of a lifetime to pay her ex back by hooking up with his nemesis. The question is...will she take it?
Add in Goodreads:

Add in BookBub:

After I caught my boyfriend cheating, I tried to be mature about it with an amicable split. But he took his retaliation too far, and I have officially had enough. No more Miss Nice Haven.

No one is allowed to lie to me, betray, embarrass, and devastate me, fill me with self-doubt, or put my future at risk, and expect to get away with it. He is going to feel my wrath.

Enter Wick Webster, his archenemy.

Nothing would provoke my ex more than to see me moving on with the one guy he hates most, so that’s exactly what I plan to do.

The only hitch in my brilliant scheme is Wick himself. He’s just gotta be all love-not-war and peace-is-the-only-way. He’s more concerned about helping me heal than seeking my sweet revenge.

And what the hell is it about his soothing presence and yummy looks that calls to me until I forget how much pain I’m in? He’s making it awfully hard to use and abuse him for my malicious means. The damn guy is making me fall for him.

Looking Forward

Tuesday, January 15, 2019
I'm so happy January is followed by December!  Because December is kind of that time where you look back and reflect, right, and evaluate how things have gone? Well, that was just plain scary for me. All I saw were my failures, losses, and rejections. Which led to depression, curling up inside myself, shutting the world out, and just plain wanting to die.

But now it's January! Er, well, halfway through (took me a bit to get over December). Time to look forward, shake off all my mistakes and goof-ups and try, try again. And I just read a nice, inspiring quote to help with that. It said, "A dream written down with a date becomes a goal. A goal broken down into steps becomes a plan. A plan backed by action becomes reality."

So, I'm writing down my dream and setting a date to it. I want to write eight books within the next three years.

EEK, my dream just turned into a goal!!!

This will be a challenge for me because my day job became significantly more involved this year, plus I'd like to work on getting a masters degree in library science sometime within the next three years, as well, and my kids are getting more involved in activities. And from past goals I've set like this before, I usually only finish twenty to fifty percent of the books I want to write. So I definitely have my work cut out for me to actually make my dream come true.

The first step I am going to take in my plan is to significantly drop social media involvement in order to make a bit of available time to actually write, meaning this might be the last you'll hear from me for a while.

Then again, I fail a lot, so who knows if that will actually be true! LOL. If it does turn out to be true, however, I hope you've made sure to sign up for my "new release notifications" emails, IF you know, you're the type who likes to read my stories.  That way, you won't miss any of my new releases, for sure.

And with that, I wish you all the luck in the world with turning your own dreams into reality! I know you can do it!! Just remember: Dream, Goal, Steps, Plan, Action REALITY!! We got this.

Until then, whenever that may be, big hugs from me.
