A Little Christmas Gift From Me.......

Merry Christmas!! I have a little gift for you!! The Exception To The Rule is free for a very limited time! So, if Santa left you a new kindle fill it up with Kat & Julian's beautiful love story,I promise you won't be disappointed.


“Are you tired?” I asked.
“A little,” he finally admitted.
“But I thought you didn’t get tired,” I teased as I got up to grab the blanket from the other couch, turning off the overhead light. I looked out the window to see a light snow falling. I sat back down on the couch covering us both with the blanket as we watched TV with just the glow of the fireplace and Christmas tree lights. He had his arms wrapped tightly around me as I rested my head on his chest.
“Thank you,” I whispered.
“For what?” he asked.
“For being here.”
 I smiled when he pulled me closer and gently kissed my head. It didn’t take long before I heard his breathing begin to change and as I looked up I saw he was sound asleep. I put my head back down on his chest, kissing it softly. Just knowing he was here beside me, listening to his heartbeat and feeling him breathe, put my mind at such ease that it wasn’t long before I was fast asleep too.

Just a little Update on Books 2 & 3 Of When The Chips Are Down

Over the weekend I typed those two little words that are oh so bittersweet to an author, "The End". As some of you may know, this book is book 2 of When The Chip Are Down (Carrie's story).  No, I didn't write it at warp speed, I had it about 3/4 of the way done when I put it aside to write Easy Silence. I actually contemplated not even writing and releasing the next two books of this series because I wasn't sure if the demand was there based on my sales from When The Chips Are Down. After thinking about it long and hard, I realize that I needed to write Carrie & Gia's story regardless if ten people read it or ten thousand people read it. They both have a story that needs to be told...so I'm gonna tell it!  So, once Easy Silence was written, I went back in, made some changes, and added the ending and voila - Carrie and Jason's Story was created!

I'm now moving on and starting Gia's story.....can you guess who the hero is going to be in this one?

I will be releasing both books together, which means you will have to wait a little longer than originally planned, but I feel this makes the most sense, being that Gia's book is going to pick up right were Carrie's ends.  I promise this will all be worth the wait! So, with that being said.....I'm looking for a release date of sometime in January....I'm going to shoot for December, but I think January is much a safer bet!

I want to thank those of you that have been waiting for these books for being so patient and especially the girls in my little book group (you know who you are) who were so supportive when I told them back in March that I had an idea for a total ugly cry book that needed to be written. If it weren't for these girls telling me to take a break from Carrie and write the story that was speaking to me - Samantha & Jaxson may not have been created and a lot less tears would have been shed!

So, for those of you that have read When The Chips Are Down as well as Easy Silence, I hope the break I took to create Samantha & Jaxson was worth the wait!



I promise that Carrie's & Gia's books will bring you nothing but smiles and plenty of laughs!

Easy Silence - Release Day Blitz & Giveaway




Title: Easy Silence
Author: Beth Rinyu
Genre: New Adult, Romance
 Release Date: July 9, 2015



Blurb

They say you never forget your first love. No matter how many more come along or how much time goes by, there will always be that one person who will be forever embedded deep inside your heart and soul. For me, that was Jaxson Callahan.

We were complete opposites. I was a senator’s daughter. My parents were always too busy keeping up appearances on the political scene to show me love, so instead they bought my affection.

He was the son of a woman who allowed men to use and abuse her as well as him, just for her next fix.

We became each other’s solace during that summer we met, creating a lifetime of memories in three short months. I provided him with a sense of hope that there was more than just the harsh reality of the life he had grown accustomed to, and he showed me a genuine love that I had been yearning for my entire life. We vowed to be together forever. I loved him and he loved me…. and nothing would keep us apart.

Nothing except the secrets that were hiding in that small seaside town.
Secrets that altered our destiny. We were never given any warning as we watched our future shake, crumble and disappear altogether, leaving us with nothing but memories of a bittersweet past.

Life can be beautiful.
Life can be kind.

And, life can be heartless…..because nothing about our situation was fair.

Excerpt

“So, did you have a good birthday?” I asked.

“It’s just another day. Nothing special about it. I’d just as soon forget the day I was born.”

“Why are you so hard on yourself?” I second guessed myself for asking as the words spewed from my mouth.

“You just wouldn’t understand, Samantha.”

My whole life I hated being called that name, but hearing him say it was kind of nice. It was as if it was his and his name only for me. I was his Samantha, and he was my Jaxson.

“Maybe I could try. I’m a pretty good listener.”

He took another sip of his lemonade and placed it on the table. “I really have to go.” He stood up and looked down at the ground.

“I’m sorry. I – I didn’t’ mean to pry,” I said, standing up beside him. “It’s just, sometimes it helps to express how you’re feeling, and I’m –” He took me completely off guard when he grabbed my face in his hands, pulled me toward him, and placed a warm gentle kiss on my lips before smoothly slipping his tongue into my mouth. I was speechless as I pulled in my bottom lip still wanting to taste more of him when the kiss was over.


“You wanted me to express myself,” he whispered. “Well, that’s what I’ve been feeling from the time I walked up on this porch. I wanted to see if your lips felt as soft as they look. I wanted to get as close to you as I possibly could and breathe in your perfume that drives me crazy. And, maybe for one second of my life, I wanted to feel like I was worthy of someone like you. That’s how I was feeling, Samantha.”





Author Bio

Ever since I can remember, I have always enjoyed Creative Writing. There was always something about being able to travel to a different place or become a different person with just the stroke of a pen - or in today's world a touch of the keyboard. I am the author of The Exception To The Rule, An Unplanned Lesson, An Unplanned Life, Drowning In Love, A Cry for Hope, A Will To Change, Blind Side of Love, When The Chips Are Down and Easy Silence.

My life is not as interesting as my books or the characters in them, but then again whose life is? I'm a mom of twin teenage boys, a crazy Border Collie and a cat with an identity crisis! I guess you can say writing is my form of relaxation.

Easy Silence - Chapter 1 Teaser


What's better than a teaser for Teaser Tuesday? How about part of chapter 1? Now, you didn't think I was going to to say all of it, did you? After all, it is TEASER Tuesday!









Sometimes people enter our lives, leaving an imprint forever embedded in our hearts. They serve a purpose, however short that time together may be.

 I will never forget the first time I saw him standing all alone on the beach. His dark hair was blowing in the breeze, and a cigarette was hanging from his mouth. Normally, that would be a turn off to me, but there was something mysterious about him… something that made me unable to look away, even though a small part of me was saying to run as fast as I could. I seemed to be drawn to this stranger by some unforeseen force. The cool salty mist veiled my face, causing a strand of my long brown hair to stick to my cheek.  I slowly inched closer, startling him as he turned around to face me. His steel blue-grey eyes locked with mine, and in that instant, I knew my heart would never be the same again.

Was it crazy? Maybe.

Was I scared? A little.

Had I ever been this forward with a stranger before? Never.

I stood there silently as we slowly looked each other over. A large purple ring encompassed his swollen left eye, and as I glanced downward I noticed that his upper lip was equally swollen.
“Are you okay?” I finally found my voice. He nodded and looked away, silently staring out at the water, taking another drag of his cigarette. “My – my grandmother’s house is right up there.” I motioned up to the beach cottage just a few feet away. “I could get you some ice if you need it.”

His mouth turned up in a smile. It wasn’t one of gratitude; in fact it was just the opposite, cold and callous. “What makes you think I need ice?” he snapped.

My heart began to race as I nervously pointed to my own eye. “It’s just….your eye. It’s all swollen.”

“Go back to your perfect life with your perfect family and your perfect house, and don’t worry about me. I can take care of myself.” I was in shock as I stood there quietly staring at him. I knew I should just do as he said. He wanted to be alone, and my presence was clearly annoying him. “Did you not hear what I just said? Leave!” he said raising his voice. His eyes met mine once again, and I finally relented, giving him his wish.

I walked along the edge of the ocean for what seemed like forever before finally taking a seat in the sand, still a little rattled from the abruptness of that stranger. Who was he to judge my life? He knew nothing about me. If he did, then he would know that my life wasn’t perfect… far from it.  I looked out at the water, trying my best to calm down from my recent encounter. The waves crashed onto the shore with full force. There had been red flags up all over , warning swimmers to stay out due to the rip currents caused by a passing storm that was out at sea. Sadly, the loud roar and velocity of the ocean were more warm and welcoming than my life. I stood up and walked to where the waves were breaking, wondering if anyone would even notice if I were to be taken away forever. Probably not. If anything it would just be an inconvenience for my parents, causing them to take time from their political agenda to mourn the loss of a daughter whom they didn’t even really know.  Being the daughter of Senator Maxwell Carmichael wasn’t an easy task. To outsiders looking in, it appeared to be a piece of cake. I was given everything in life… a top education at one of the most prestigious all-girls boarding schools, a brand new car when I got my driver’s license, and I was a soon-to-be freshman at Georgetown University studying international affairs because that’s what my father wanted me to do. And in return, he demanded perfection. I wasn’t allowed to act like a normal teenage girl, for fear I may do something that would embarrass him. So, I basically shut myself out of the social scene all through high school with my only outlet being the drama club. My dream was to become an actress. Acting was my passion. In addition to drama club, I took acting lessons during my summer breaks. My father scoffed, never allowing me to pursue that dream, calling it a “hobby,” but to me it was so much more. It allowed me to become a different person, even if for only a few minutes. I was able to escape the loneliness that was my life. As I stepped into the water further and looked out at the horizon, I couldn’t help but think my parents were on the other side of this great big ocean. If I had my days straight, they were in London at the moment. They were spending the summer in Europe, traveling to a slew of countries. I once again chose not to go, but this summer instead of staying at my home in Maryland with our housekeeper, who was more like a mother to me than my own, I decided to spend the summer with my grandmother at her beach house in North Carolina.

Grandma Caroline was my rock. She was always there for me. I knew if I needed her, she was only a phone call away. It saddened me to see her now. She wasn’t the same strong woman I knew my whole life. Alzheimer’s had taken her away, and as her condition continued to deteriorate, my father continued to throw money at it, instead of spending time with his mother like he should have been. He had hired a live-in companion to care for her in addition to Hadley, her live-in housekeeper, who over the years had become more of a friend to my grandmother than an employee. I was willing to postpone my first semester of college to stay and help take care of her, but my father was adamant that I go to school. Part of me wanted to stand up to him. I was eighteen years old and no longer a child, but I still continued to allow him to treat me as such.  I was so deep in thought that I hadn’t realized the undertow had pulled me out. Panic began to take over as the tide carried me further, and my attempt to swim back to shore became fruitless. The lifeguards and all of the beachgoers were gone with it being early evening. I was going to die alone in this ocean, and no one would even know it. The waves were merciless, coming one right after another, not even allowing me to catch my breath. My throat began to burn from the salt water that I was unintentionally consuming, and my body twisted and turned like a rag doll, being no match for this powerful force. I tried my best to swim parallel to the shore line, but it was no use. The current was so strong and the waves too rough, crashing into me from every direction. At that moment I was prepared to die. I had given up. My body was too tired from fighting a losing battle. I was no match for this great big force, and I was surrendering. I submerged myself under the water hoping it would be over soon as the waves above me continued to roll.  All I could think of was how angry my dad was going to be at me for this. His trip was going to be interrupted to attend my funeral. I surfaced once again, while gasping for air and taking in more salt water in the process.  I didn’t know what was happening when I felt someone grip me tightly from behind. I tried do wiggle out from the hold that was on me, but just like the waves, it was of no use......

A Collection Of Teasers From Easy Silence

Last night it dawned on me, I think I have more teasers for my soon to be released book Easy Silence than I do for all of my other books combined. To say I went a little teaser crazy with this one is a bit of an understatement. Every time I would go on to a stock photo website I would see a picture, think of a part of the story that it would go with, download, go to Pic Monkey.... and bam! Yes, it's a bit of an addiction. So, I thought I would share my addiction in one place. Here are all of the teasers that I have shown SO FAR.

Just A Quick Little Update.....

Just wanted to let all you know about the little detour I'm taking with my writing:

I released When The Chips Are Down two weeks ago, and I plan on writing two other books in series:

Carrie's - Which I had originally planned on releasing in summer

and

Gia's - in the fall.

I had a little pity party for myself when I saw my sales for When The Chips Are Down and started doubting myself about  even releasing them at all......because the demand wouldn't be there for the two other books. I got over it and realized that I made a promise before I even released When The Chips Are Down that I would follow through with Carrie & Gia's book no matter what.......just because I needed to see where there stories took me. So, if you are anxiously awaiting their stories they will be published. I'm now planning on releasing the two of them together which means it may be a little later than I had originally anticipated. I am 90% done with Carrie's book and have one chapter of Gia's book done which would put me right on target for a late summer/early fall release. Perfect.....right?

Well.....As luck would have it....A whole new book popped into my head and is taking over all of my thoughts, every time I go to sit down and write Gia's story. So, I've begun to write that one and hopefully once I get a few more chapters out, I will be able to go back to Gia (or you may be getting a whole new standalone in between). The last thing I want to do is rush or force Carrie & Gia's stories. I love these girls as if they were real, and I want them to be perfect and given my 100% attention. I hope you guys understand.....I will keep you updated. But if you are anxiously awaiting their stories.....they will be out, and I promise they will be worth the wait!

Prologue ~ When The Chips Are Down



Here's a sneak peek at the Prologue for my latest novel "When The Chips Are Down". It's a romantic comedy told in in triple POV's ~ Mother and twin teenage daughters and despite their age difference they have quite a bit in common when it comes to falling in love, broken hearts, facing fears and moving on. Meet Melanie, Carrie & Gia on 3/14/15......I guarantee they will put a smile on your face.



PROLOGUE


I had the absolute best husband in the world, or so I thought. That’s why, at thirty-seven, I found myself divorced with two teenage daughters, who had a much better social life than I did, and a cheating ex-husband.

I’ve always been the type of person who liked to plan things ahead of time, so I had my plan in place. Get married, have two kids by the time I reached thirty, and be married to their dad until the day we died. Well, I got two outta three. I was married at twenty – yes, I know, dumb move! I had my two kids by the time I was twenty-one. It was the third step of the plan that didn’t work out too well. Don’t get me wrong. There were days I wanted to kill him, but I don’t think that would have qualified as step three.

I always knew that Alec – the ex, asshole, genetic contributor, jerk-off, take your pick – was a ladies’ man. I saw the way women looked at him, and the way he looked back. But I always thought of him more as a flirt than a cheater. When I was eighteen, we met at a concert and, two years later, we were married. I didn’t listen to my parents, my sister, or my friends when they told me I was too young. I was twenty, and I knew everything. Plus, I was a sucker for blue eyes. The years passed and we were somewhat happy. Yes, we would get into our knock-down, drag-out fights. Once his architectural business picked up and the money started rolling in, I thought things were getting better, or maybe I was just in denial. I didn’t want to know who he was spending all of those “late nights” at the office with, or if those business trips were really business. He was taking care of me and my girls financially, and at some point in time, I just really stopped caring if he was cheating or not. The final revelation came two years ago when I paid him a surprise visit at his office. Only it was I who had gotten the surprise when I found him and his much younger secretary – a.k.a. the new wife – in a very compromising position.

Our divorce was final a year ago. He moved a half-hour away, married his much younger girlfriend, and was now a dad again at forty. After he had left, I did the whole woe is me, scorned woman routine. I sat around in my pajamas feeling sorry for myself, cut all the pictures of us in half, found comfort in sweets, and closed myself off to the rest of the world. Then, one day, I finally realized my life wasn’t over. It was just beginning. If that asshole could still be producing offspring at forty, there was still time for me to make a success of my life. I had so many other roles besides just being Alec’s wife. So I picked myself up, dusted myself off, and proudly embraced my new life and all of my important roles. Melanie Hanson: single mom, great friend, loyal daughter, and part-owner of I Thee Wed bridal shop. Yes, my life was different now, but I was going to live it to the fullest. Even though my driver’s license may have said I was thirty-seven years old, my mind sometimes told me differently.

Less Than A To Week Go.....Who's Nervous? Not me!



As I sit here writing this blog post, I can't help but feel a little apprehension over having less than one week to go before my newest novel releases. I'm finding that no matter how many books you release it's a feeling you can't shake. I had started this story years ago and put it on the back burner before revisiting it last summer. I revamped the story line in my head, took a chance and threw in two other Pov's, and Melanie, Carrie and Gia were born! And, just like I can't imagine my world without my kids, I couldn't imagine my book world without these characters. I knew as I was writing this that their story couldn't stop at the end of this book. Carrie and Gia still had a whole grown up life to discover and their stories needed to be told. I was dying to know where they were gong to take me. 


So as I just hit 70k words in Book 2 I'm quite surprised by some of the decisions Carrie is making, but it's just like being a mom.....at some point you have to let them make their own choices and just hope they get that happily ever after. Am I worried that not enough people are going to read book 1, or not really care about what goes on any further after they do read it? I will admit, at first I was, but then I realized I'm writing Carrie and Gia's story for myself, because I wasn't ready to say goodbye to these characters. I needed to know what the future had in store for them. I know that some authors like to see how well the first book takes off, or if there is a demand for a second and third before they invest any further time into the same characters, and that is totally understandable. But, for me, these three books are personal,and Carrie and Gia deserve to have their entire story told. So, I may be wasting time and money,writing them, having them edited and having pretty covers designed, but when all is written and done, and I see all three books sitting on my end table, knowing that their stories are complete.... it will not have been in vain. 


 Until then....here's a little teaser from When The Chips Are Down (Book 1) releasing on March 14th.

Cover Reveal ~ When The Chips Are Down

Here is my latest cover for my latest novel (releasing on 3/20/15) When The Chips Are Down. A romantic comedy that I'm hoping will give you lots of laughs! Thank you to Lindee Robinson for the beautiful photo and cover design.


Melanie Hanson's life didn't go quite the way she had planned. Her cheating ex-husband traded her in for a newer model and she’s in over her head dealing with the drama that comes along with raising her twin teenage daughters.

The last thing she is looking for or needs in her life is a man - or is it?

Ben Wilder is the boy that Melanie loved to hate throughout high school, the boy that all the girls loved and the boy that didn't give Melanie the time of day, unless it was to tease her. When she runs into him once again she realizes...he’s not a boy anymore. Older and wiser, she’s determined not to fall for her secret crush from all those years ago. But sometimes our heart has different plans than our head. Will she finally get her happily ever after with the man she least expected to have it with?

Take a humorous journey with Melanie and her daughters as their lives begin to parallel and they discover that although they may be separated by a generation their struggles are still the same.


*Book 1 of The Three Of A Kind Series 

Excerpt


I tried my best to ignore him, but I could feel his eyes settling on me. I took a deep breath when he got up and sat next to me. “Well, at least I know your real name now.” I shook my head, still trying to avoid eye contact. “So, how’s your ass doing?”
            “What!?” I finally turned my head and looked directly at him.
            “From your fall the other day.” I looked away. “Was I really that much of an ass to you during high school that you are still carrying a grudge all these years later?”
            “Don’t flatter yourself. It has nothing to do with you.”
            “Oh, okay. So, are you bitchy like this to every guy you come in contact with?”
            “Yeah, maybe I am! What’s it to you?”
            He held his hand up in defense. “Doesn’t matter to me one bit, sweetheart, but you’ve clearly been shafted by a guy a time or two to have an attitude like that. I mean, don’t get me wrong. The bitchy ones are better in bed with all that pent-up aggression.” He smirked and took a sip of his beer.
            “Oh, you are such a pig, you know that? You are the same arrogant ‘I’m so in love with myself’ jock you were back in school! Well, reality check. Despite the fact you may have never grown up, most women have. So your good looks, perfect body, and smooth talking will no longer work.”             He chuckled loudly. “What’s so funny?”
            “I think you just admitted you thought I was good-looking and had a perfect body.”
            “No. That’s not what –” He had me feeling so flustered. “I meant MEN, in general!”
            “Whatever you say, princess.”
            “My name is Melanie! Oh, wait. Maybe you’ll remember Smellanie better!”
            His grin widened. “Ahhhh, now I remember you! You were that cute little blonde girl who used to sit in front of me in French class. You were the little goody two-shoes who always knew exactly how to respond in perfect French to the teacher, while the rest of us struggled to maintain a D average. You know you really didn’t smell, right? That was just a nickname for you.”
            “I know I never smelled, thank you very much!”

My Valentines Day Gift To You

Okay, since I know a huge majority of women will be spending their weekend with Christian Grey, the fun doesn't have to stop after you leave the movie theater. Hollywood may be giving you Christian on the movie screen but I'm giving you Dailan O'Maley for free (first time ever!) on your kindle. So, if you need a fix as you come down from your Christian high or if you're like me, and waiting a few weeks for the crowds to die down at the movies before seeing it....then Dailan is your man. I mean, who wouldn't want to spend their Valentine's day with a sexy, sarcastic Irish guy? So, I'll supply the hot guy, and you supply the chocolate and wine. Oh, and spread the word to whatever friends you think would enjoy him as well....there is plenty of him to go around! Happy Valentine's Day and Happy Reading!

An Unplanned Lesson Free on Amazon until 2/15/15
