Hello! Iâ€™m Tina Gabrielle and I write adventurous historical
romance featuring feisty ladies and bold heroes. Iâ€™m excited to be on Fresh Fiction to
celebrate my new historical release, HOW TO BEST A MARQUESS, the second book in
my Raven Club series.
Writing a novel is not an easy task. I think of it as a
rollercoaster ride of emotion. One day I can be struggling with the dreaded sagging middle,
and the next day my fingers are flying over the keyboard.
Writerâ€™s block is also a dreaded phenomenon, and it can
result in frustration and depression. Iâ€™ve experienced a form of it. Whether Iâ€™m staring at a
blank screen or an empty piece of paper, it can be crippling.
Thankfully, Iâ€™ve used helpful tips to overcome it. Exercising
works best for me. Iâ€™m a lap swimmer, and Iâ€™ve found the quiet time away from the kids and
work very helpful. Iâ€™m able to simply think.
If this doesnâ€™t work, I change my environment. Iâ€™m not a
coffee drinker, but I go to my nearest Starbucks with my laptop and order a large iced tea.
Something about being around people, without having to talk to anyone, helps me focus. Iâ€™ve
written some of my best scenes at my local Starbucks.
Another tip is to call a trusted writing friend. Iâ€™ve attended
my local NJ Romance Writers for years and have met wonderful friends. Who else can truly
understand what we go through?
Thankfully, I havenâ€™t suffered from many bouts of writerâ€™s
block. I use my tips and soon my characters speak to me. I start writing. And writing some
more. And then something wonderful happens. I finish the novel and do the snoopy dance and
run around the house kissing my husband and kids in celebration. Itâ€™s one of the best feelings!
Hereâ€™s a blurb about my upcoming release:
When a handsome boxer kisses Lady Ellie Swift for good
luck during a match, it turns her world upside down. Because the rogue isnâ€™t just anyoneâ€¦itâ€™s
the Devil Marquess returned. Thanks to Hugh Vere, Marquess of Deveril, Ellie learned at an
early age that men are more trouble than theyâ€™re worth. Now, instead of a husband, she wants
to take over her brotherâ€™s infamous gambling clubâ€”the Raven Club. And apparently the devil
wants it, too.
From the moment Hugh sees Ellie again sparks fly,
but battle lines have been drawn. Whoever is the most successful overseeing the club in one
monthâ€™s time will win. And Hugh intends to win. And he intends to stay very close to Ellie to
make sure she follows the rules. What he discovers, though, is that Ellie is no longer the sweet
girl he knew years agoâ€”and winning wonâ€™t be easy. But the nearly combustible chemistry
between them is hard to ignore, and soon the club is not the only prize he wantsâ€¦ Â Â
The Raven Club #2
Lady Ellie Swift learned at an early age that men were more trouble than theyâ€™re worth. Now
sheâ€™s all grown up and is the toast of society. Only she has secret ambitions to run her
brotherâ€™s infamous gambling establishmentâ€”the Raven Club. Everything is progressing as
planned until the man who broke her heart, Hugh Vere, the Marquess of Deveril, wants to take
over the club. Dark, dominant, and strikingly handsome, Hughâ€™s reputation for sin precedes
him, and suddenly, her dreamsâ€”and her heartâ€”are in jeopardy.
As rakish as Hugh appears, he has a sharp mind for business. No one stands in the way of
what he wants, not even the fiery-haired beauty from his past. From the moment he sees her
again sparks fly, but he knows better than to fall for the lady. According to Ellie, the battle lines
have been drawn and Hugh doesnâ€™t stand a chance. But the nearly combustible chemistry
between them is hard to ignore, and soon the club is not the only prize he wantsâ€¦
