There are buddy cop films where the plot involves two people of different personalities who are forced to work together to defeat the bad guys, sometimes learning from each other in the process. And then there are buddy writers. Two people of comparative personalities who choose to work together to create a story that readers will hopefully love, most definitely learning from each other in the process.

Crockett & Tubbs, Murtaugh & Riggs, Turner & Hooch, Tango & Cash, Thelma & Louise. Okay, T&L werenft cops, but they were best buds until the very end so for the purposes of this post, wefll compare it to typing, gThe End.h See what we did there? Youfre so clever, Sam. No, youfre so clever, Robin.

What wefre trying to say is, we had a kickass time writing this book together. As with any big undertaking, there were good days and bad days. There were rewrites and respites. Coffee fueled most of our writing/brainstorming sessions—we can totally vouch for the power of mochas. And plotting sessions by the seat of our pants ruled our word counts.

We took long walks along the beach to talk through scenes and emotions and characterization and how we pictured Vaughn looking just like model, Andrea Denver. That research was tough. Hefs horribly photogenic. And donft even get us started on his shirtless pics. <insert heart eyes emoji>

Emails flew back and forth on the regular. We learned to compromise and cooperate. We learned to respect each otherfs points of view. We learned to stand up for what we really wanted and not sweat the small stuff. When we got stuck, we had the other person to lean on. And when the words flowed, we gave the other person giant cheers and XOs.

This book took shape over months and months of much more than writing sprints and chapter goals, though. Our friendship grew, too. Our respect for the craft. And those things helped make this book what it is. Writing a book is hard. We felt new pangs of pressure because we didnft want to disappoint each other. But we were also ready to go for it because we had each otherfs backs. Thatfs a glorious feeling.

We collaborated. We conquered. Wefre friends till the end. Buddy writers ready to celebrate this victory with food, drink and mani-pedis. And thatfs a wrap on Sam and Robinfs first Excellent Writing Adventure.

Thanks for taking the ride with us!


PROMISE ME by Robin Bielman, Samanthe Beck

Hefll promise her a summer she wonft forget...

Instead of soaking up the SoCal sunshine while housesitting for my aunt, Ifm dealing with a Pomeranian who thinks shefs a Pitbull, two half-sisters who would happily prune me off the family tree, and him. Vaughn Shaughnessy. Hot model about to go nuclear, dangerously sexy flirt whose perceptive green eyes promise hefs more than just a pretty face. Hefs the kind of walking, talking temptation I should avoid, but thatfs impossible because he also happens to be my extremely lickable—I mean likeable—neighbor.

Hefs turning me into a hot mess.

Thing is, I canft handle more messes in my life. Ifm still trying to come to terms with the monumental ones in my past, and getting involved with Vaughn—even for temporary summer fun—is guaranteed to get messy. I donft dare risk it, but Ifm not sure I can resistc
