Dear lesfic fan,
I was at a writer’s conference this past weekend, so this week’s newsletter only includes a handful of special deals and news.
The regular format of the newsletter will return on May 7th.

In the news business, owning the headlines comes with a deadly cost.
JJ Cavendish thought she’d escaped her dark past. After publishing her tell-all memoir, she’s ready to settle down with Claire and devote her attention to running a scrappy online news venture. But when her new business partner exploits JJ’s notoriety to keep the company afloat, avoiding the limelight becomes impossible.
As JJ keeps hungry movie producers at bay, she fields an intriguing offer from an old enemy that could help her expose a cyber bully, stop a string of suicides, and get her company the scoop it needs. To bring the story to light, JJ and her team must brave the darkest corners of the web and hope her own name doesn’t make the headlines in the process.

Sarah, the beloved daughter of a noble family, has been captured by the most feared monster of the open seas: a pirate. As if that isn’t bad enough, Sarah is haunted by the memory of the first woman she loved and left — the stable master’s daughter — and the tragic events that followed her loss. But despite her dark past, Sarah is determined not to let the pirate captain get the better of her. The only problem is that this is no ordinary pirate she faces. The pirate captain has charm, wit… and a secret that leaves Sarah reeling.
Petra knew she could never forget Sarah, the enchanting daughter of her father’s employer. Even if their single drunken kiss meant more to Petra than it did to her beloved, and even if Sarah said that it would be beneath her to be with Petra, Petra has spent ten years raiding ships in search of her. Driven by her determination to be as strong and independent as any man, and the memory of having been a mere servant to the woman she loved, Petra struggles between being in control and losing control — especially when she finally captures her heart’s desire.

Their paths cross, and a story neither of them could have imagined, begins…
Episode 31: Harper’s World Is Turned Upside Down
Harper is having the best month ever! Over the Easter weekend, we practised for retirement by going for a walk in the woods and playing Scrabble.
Netflix pulled our favourite napping show, so we’re missing our lunchtime naps. Another show is helping Harper process her former career as a civil servant.

In this episode, TB & Clare share five tips for writers.
First, they catch up with what’s going on in their lives. TB is on her second disastrous week in a row and blames Clare for calling her the titanic TB last week, cursing TB. Clare is making good progress on her latest novel. Woot!
During the comment section, Clare comes up with a new tagline for the podcast: unboring and unstuffy. It might need some work. Clare has also decided she has a new mission: to make TB cry on the podcast.
Then they launch into five tips for authors. They dive into why you have to love telling stories. Also, they give advice about schedules and the writing process. TB and Clare discuss one thing that can be the writer’s enemy. Next up is a rabbit hole many authors trick themselves into believing is helpful, when many times it’s actually a crutch. Finally, for this episode, they delve into why it’s so difficult to turn off the writerly brain. Although, Clare is still waiting for her shower epiphany.
Stop back next week when Clare and TB will be discussing their top tips for authors.
