Guest Post By Tracy Sharp

Today, I have another guest blogger, and I’m tickled to death to have her!

Some time ago, I blogged about being a part of J. A. Konrath’s “Jack Daniels And Associates” Kindle World. That’s where I met Silas Payton.

Now, let me tell you how I met my friend Tracy Sharp.

It goes back to last year, when I first was tempted to write a story teaming Jack Daniels with Justice Security. I was on the fence, leaning toward collaboration with Joe Konrath, and I had read Jacked Up! and really liked it. I looked Tracy up on Facebook, and sent a private message asking about her collaboration experience, and that started our friendship.

Both of us, along with Silas and several others, wrote new stories to premiere for the new Jack Daniels And Associates World. Tracy and I even bought copies of our stories and gifted them to each other! We were very happy to have been part of the premiere of Joe Konrath’s new Kindle World.

We’ve been each other’s encouragement and each other’s cheerleaders ever since that first message.

Now, flash forward to just a few days ago: Tracy has a new short romance novel, and is part of the “Carly Phillips Dare To Love Kindle World”. She has been kind enough to write a special guest blog entry for me, and here she is:

Hi all! My name is Tracy Sharp and my good friend Michael Bilderback was kind enough to invite me to blog today. It’s great to be here, especially since I have great news to share!

My new short romance novel, Wish To Dare, was just released as part of the wonderful Carly Phillips Dare to Love Kindle World. I'm incredibly thrilled to be a part of this world, and loved writing Dean and Leslie's story. Here are the cover and blurb:


He's finally awake, for the first time in his life,,,

After two years in a coma, Dean Wilson, former running back of the NY Wolves, is turning over a new leaf. He has a new lease on life, and wants to make a difference in the lives of current and retired football players. Being invited to participate in the groundbreaking new training program created by Ian Dare, President of Miami Thunder, is just the opportunity he is looking for. Now he needs to be a role model. No more wild nights and womanizing for him. And no alcohol! Since his head injury, the stuff erases his inhibitions and makes him act in ways that might ruin his blossoming new career.

When he meets the gorgeous Miami Star sports blogger, his decision-making abilities evaporate into thin air.

She's picked up the pieces of her shattered heart, and now Leslie Benson is working hard to build her journalism career. For once, she is putting herself first. But when Leslie's job is suddenly on the line, she needs a juicy story fast. She's willing to do just about anything to get the dirt from form NY Wolf, Dean Wilson, whose famous past affairs include the wives of several celebrities and politicians. Leslie isn't above charming the womanizer into taking a drink or two to loosen his lips. But her plan backfires when she discovers how the notorious bad boy affects her. The powerful cravings of her body are quickly overriding her brain.

But Leslie once allowed love to eclipse her own goals before, and the fall-out was devastating. Will Leslie choose her job over the career and redeemed reputation of the new and improved Dean Wilson? Or will she dare to open herself up to the smoking hot player who has seduced more women than he can remember?

This is the fourth story I have on Kindle Worlds, which have included the wonderful
Jack Daniels and Associates world and the fantastically fun Codename: Chandler world. I have to say that I've really enjoyed writing in the various worlds I've written stories for. It's kind of addictive. Once you start, you just don't want to stop. It's really a blast to play in someone else's back yard. I'll definitely writ more Kindle Worlds stories.

If you're a writer, this is definitely a great way to expand your readership. Give one of these excellent worlds a whirl.

If you're a reader, you'll be pleased with the level of quality of these stories. They go through a review process for quality, and many of the Kindle Worlds writers are successful authors in their own right.

Thanks for having me, Michael!

Wish To Dare is available at Amazon, here.

Tracy has done something that I simply can't seem to do...she's written a romance novel. I can't do that, no matter how hard I try!
As always, thanks to our readers for staying with us. We do it all for you, and we’d love for you to…

Keep reading!
