It is time to put away the scary decorations, hide the candy around the house so you can find it (wink), and starting cleaning the house for company!
Here at Coffee Time Romance, we are getting ready for the holidays. Holidays events, holiday food, and best of all....holiday books!
Bella Abbascia has returned to Seaside Cottages in Wellfleet, Massachusetts, as she does every summer. Only this year, Bella has more on her mind than sunbathing and skinny-dipping with her girlfriends. She’s quit her job, put her house on the market, and sworn off relationships while she builds a new life in her favorite place on earth. That is, until good-time Bella’s prank takes a bad turn and a sinfully sexy police officer appears on the scene

Coffee Crew News
Publisher News & Events
Organizing promoting your book can be a big deal. Especially if your stuff is all over the place in different folders on your computer or in different places saved online such as photobucket and so on. Recently we discovered a tool that makes organizing promoting your book much much easier. That tool is Evernote! Chances are you've heard of this tool, but maybe never thought about using it to organize your promtions, ideas, graphics etc. The beauty of Evernote is that you can have all your promotions information in one easy to find place, plus if you download the corresponding apps, such as the Android app or the desktop app you can access your information in those places as well as online when you sign in, and it will all sync so that everything you add new will appear in all the places you have Evernote! Need to make neat checklists? Use Evernote, need to grab some text, webpage or attach a graphic use Evernote. You'll never have all your promotions stuff spread everywhere again!

Coffee Time Recommended Reads
Our Coffee Crew works hard every day reading and writing those great reviews because we love it. Out of all the books that the entire staff reads, occassionally one raises to the top of our Staffer's mind. A special book that is just so wonderful, we feel it deserves an extra acknowledgement. So once a month, our Coffee Crew awards a book with the CTRR Award and share it with you.
Not every member of our Coffee Crew will have a 'special' book they recommend, so when one of the books is selected, you know it is special! Stop by our blog to see which books were nominated and won this month...or in the past!

Mike and Liz Keeny are newlyweds, new parents, and the proprietors of the Barrett Inn, an 1875 Victorian on Cape Cod, which just happens to be haunted. By their own ghosts. The Inn had become an annex of Purgatory, putting Mike, Liz, and their infant son in danger. Selling the historic seaside bed and breakfast was the only answer, one that Liz and her own tortured specter refused to consider. Were Mike and Liz doomed to follow the same path that led to disaster in their previous lives? Was getting out, getting away, enough?

a special call out for BDSM 1Night Stand Series stories. Here's the scoop on it:
1Night Stand dates have reached new levels of kink with the opening of a new BDSM underground resort club in Las Vegas.
With every luxury and amenity, gorgeous pools, well-equipped dungeons, the finest in leather and steel, and devices to delight, the Carnivore Club is ready to serve some of Madame Eve's clients. Suites are available.
We are looking for stories in the BDSM genre that meet the requirements of the 1Night Stand series. While stories need not take place at the resort, consider the facilities available. We are sure your characters will have the time of their lives. Stories should be between 15-20k and are due Oct 1, 2014 for release early in 2015. 1Night Stand series details are available on the 1NS blog, Decadent1Nightstand.blogspot.com .
