The Beautician and the Billionaire Episode 1 Re-Release!

Available for FREE at all vendors!


With the upcoming release of the final episode of The Beautician and the Billionaire, I’ve gone back and cleaned up some of the continuity errors that happen when writing off the cuff. The books in my Holiday Cafe series see a few drafts before they reach my editor, and then they see some more drafts after the first pass by Julie. But I didn’t have Episode 9 done before I started posting Episode 1. I didn’t even have Episode 2 done!

I’ve really enjoyed writing something so spontaneous. It’s been fun to add scenes based on reader reaction. That happened early on and then more recently with Episode 8. When I do another serial like this, I hope for more reader comments. That’s a big part of what makes writing a serial fun.

But I definitely had to make adjustments. For example, Raul is merely a driver in Episode 1. As the story progressed, I realized he needed to be more like a personal assistant because he had a much bigger role to play than originally planned. So I’ve gone in and changed all of Conor’s references to him to assistant rather than just driver.

Another error I had was when Conor first spoke to Becca. Originally he hadn’t spoken to her in three years, but as the story developed, I realized she would’ve been tormenting him all those years. So that’s changed.

I’m slowly getting the updated versions out to the public. I uploaded Episode 1 to Amazon yesterday, but they seem particularly slow and haven’t gotten the title updated. However, All Romance and Smashwords have the new versions with the new cover. If you’re new to my blog, the first Episode is free! Please check it out!

A couple hours later they pulled into a private drive. Wind rocked the car, but the rain had stopped, leaving a fog over everything. She didn’t know how Raul was driving now that there were no lights except the car’s. The privacy glass blocked her from Conor like the fog blocked the view. She wanted to be with him and ease his migraine. They needed to fix the fractures in their relationship before they grew into fissures. Continue reading

Charisse caught her breath. He wore a black suit perfectly tailored to the smooth lines of his body. A cobalt tie matched his eyes that shone even in the subtle lighting of the apartment. His hair appeared untouched, just like it had been when he left Ma Charisse. Her eyes paused when she saw him carrying a single white rose.

“Good evening,” he said to Marie.

“Uh, hi. I didn’t expect you to come up.”

He held out the rose. “I wanted to deliver this personally. I’m sorry for being rude to you when we met.”

Wow. It was probably the most elegant apology Charisse had ever seen. Continue reading
