BORN THE MOVIE

Random hot dude who has to play someone in the movie?
 Who I imagine as Jake

Yes, you read that right. Born the movie. I know I have said a thousand times I would not want a movie, but you all have said a billion times you would, so I am joining your team.
If you would like BORN made into a movie or TV series, please go to this spot and rate this book trailer for BORN. I imagine if you rate low the odds of the movie being made are low, so bear that in mind.
Go and like the book trailer and the more likes the more likely it is the get picked up. It's that simple.
One more hot guy because it's Sunday? Okay
If you just want to watch over and over go to YouTube, I loaded the trailer for y'all


Hugs and smooches,

Tar

A sad day at the brown house

Today was a shitty day. One of those days you wish you could change every decision you made.
Yesterday my dog bit me in the head and I made an excuse for him.
Two weeks ago he bit my cousin and I made an excuse for him.
A month ago he attacked my cousin's dog and I made an excuse for him.
Last night I let him sleep in my daughter's room like he does every night. I had made so many excuses for him that I believed it would be fine. He was a sweet little beagle with an adorable face who I made excuses for. 
Like a ducking moron. 
When my daughter got up this morning she came into my office where I was writing a novella for the single lady spy series and told me her iPad landed on her face when she was reading. I knew instantly the dog bite on her face, the one that had broken the skin and had bled, was not caused by an iPad. But she made up a story, just like I had been doing.
None of us wanted to face the fact our beautiful beagle, Mr. Beagle as we referred to him, was sick and getting meaner by the day.
But today I ran out of excuses and I stopped trying to make them. Today I put on my big girl panties and took my lovely dog to the vet and did the responsible adult thing to do. I put my dog down. My dog that I snuggled with every day. My dog that slept with me when my kids were gone. My dog who I believed would always be there.
I made a horribly hard choice and let him go to that peaceful place I personally believe in—squirrel hell.
Rest in peace Mr. Beagle and screw you adulthood. I hate being the adult in the room most days and I really hated it today. 
My daughter is fine by the way. And her tetanus is now up to date again...

Thanks for letting me vent in an unprofessional manner.

I lost my virginity


Yes, you heard me right, I lost my virginity. My anthology virginity.
When I was a girl I was entered into various poetry anthologies but this is my first fiction one.
8 novels for the price of one, and right now it's all on sale for under a dollar—.99 cents to be exact.

My book is Blood and Bone, a psycho-thriller-romance of doom. It's probably my best novel ever. It twist and turns and keeps you guessing until the very end. Then, and only then, are you allowed to see behind the curtain.
And what's waiting for you on the other side is insane and remarkable. I am very proud of this novel and I desperately hope you enjoy it.

Here is the LINK for the anthology and here is the LINK for Blood and Bone on its own.

I really hope you love it.
As I have said many times with this book, it's not a romance, it's a ride!

Mind Screw of the Year

This is one of those books that you write and then step back and shake your head, because there's no way you should have been able to come up with something to insane.

That's all I can say. Anything else will spoil it.

If you see a review with spoilers, avoid it.
Read with a friend, support might be needed.


Good luck!

Redeemers



Hey everyone!!!
Man this book has been a real chore hahaha. First it deletes and then it gets stuck in preorder. Well here it is, careful reading it. I think it's cursed. 
Just wanted to thank everyone for the support of the characters and the story. My Roses are my babies. 
If you did preorder the other version of this book just know, it will never release. The preorder of Redeemers did not charge you and you will not receive it. You must purchase this one. 
Thanks so much and on to Betrayers!!!!!

Announcements and stuff of that sort

Hello all!!!!

Just want to touch base since it's been a bit since I blogged.


I am no longer doing preorders.

Firstly, I don't feel like it did the thing I needed it to do. I really wanted preorder to answer the question, "When is _____ book coming out?" It didn't. I have used preorder for almost a year and still received a zillion of those questions.

Secondly, twice now an unedited copy of the book has gone out on preorder instead of the updated version of the book. I will not point fingers, but IT WAS ALL THEIR FAULT! I'm kidding (I'm totally not kidding). We are all to blame when something of this magnitude occurs. I should have downloaded the version that was going to go live and didn't and blah blah blah. The part that pisses me off about this is that it's my loyal readers who get the shitty copy when this happens. It isn't some random who snags the book because the cover is pretty, totally love you randoms, but it's the people who are dedicated to me getting the crap and that's not cool. So I want total control and domination as far as books go.


Thirdly, I suck at deadlines. I don't like having deadlines and being told what book when. The minute I have it I end up screwing it up.


From now on, the book will come when the editor is done. Not a moment sooner and no promise of release. Redeemers is still set for this week, we are doing our best to have it out.


My other big news is that Redeemers is a two-part book. Part one, Redeemers is out this weekend. The second part, Betrayers, is out about a month later, if not less. Not making any promises, see what I did there?

Each part is roughly 60k in words. They are completely for the fans of the Roses, one hundred percent. I would not have written them had the interest, and death threats, not occurred. So thank you all.

I have moved to Booktropolous Social because it is a networking site like Facebook but it is entirely for books. My page is Tara Brown. And my sister's page, my PA, is Erin Leigh. And lastly, don't forget to check out the other pages, Tara Brown and her four pen names. I feel like a moron but it's the best way to ensure you aren't reading a genre you no likey.


Tara Brown- Suspenseful Romance

Erin Leigh- Regular Romance 
AE Watson- Young Adult Readers
Sophie Starr- Porn, er… I mean Smut. No wait. It's Erotica. Yeah, Erotica. 
TL Brown- Adult Fantasy. That means naughty sex, just so you know. And a lot of it.

Cheers and happy Monday!

Self Publishing


Every week, I'm sure no different to any other author, I get a bunch of questions from people wanting to be authors or people who already are authors but want more success.
They are always the same questions but I don't always have great answers because I'm short on time.
Questions like how did I start out, how did I succeed (don't really feel like I have yet, but thank you), how did I find my cover artists, who is my editor, who promotes my work, how did I get my agent, etc.
The list is huge.
I don't actually have time to answer the questions or even really think about them and ensure I am giving the best quality answers.
I maintain a busy release schedule.
So at the risk of sounding like a completely narcissistic, douchey asshole, I have written a 13k word booklet on the things I have done wrong. This is my advice, it isn't some get rich scheme or 'How to sell a million ebooks' nonsense. In the last year I've sold nearly a million ebooks yes, but if I'd been a smarter cookie I could have sold way more. I don't know much about what I got right, but I know what I got wrong.
I also know what pisses me off, so some of the tips are common sense things.
The book cost the same as always to create, cover and editing and yada yada yada, so I am charging .99c to cover the cost of it. I'm not doing it for money, I'm doing it to save myself some time and to help people who are new or trying to increase their sales or just want to laugh at all the shit I did wrong.
