State of the TAM-6 Jan
Ahhh, that New Year smell!
|TA Moore||Jan 6|
Well, welcome to the first newsletter of the New Year. I hope that you all had a good first of January, and the 2020 is treating you well so far!
So far the next few months are looking like a busy time for the Tammster! Swipe was released on Dec 31 and so far people seem to have enjoyed it! My new novel Prodigal is out on February 13 and I am on tenterhooks to see what people think of it!
It is the first book in the Lost and Found trilogy and I can’t WAIT to get stuck into book two. I’ll have the blog tour schedule up and ready for next week’s newsletter! So keep your eyes peeled.
Last but least I’m elbow deep in my SUPER SEKRIT PROJECT! So far I have the world, the story, characters I love, and I am MAYBE a little short on the cute and fluffy that I promised to deliver.
I mean, there’s a pupper? You can’t go wrong with a pupper right? (Mind you, before you get your hopes up, Booger is no Bourneville.)
That is a problem for another day, though. To be exact *checks watch, realises that makes no sense and checks calendar* it is a problem for February 29 when the novella is due. That is so long away, or at least it seemed that way 2019!
Seriously though, I am really enjoying writing this one and I love the characters, even thought I have to do a rename on one of them because she refuses to co-operate until she is APPROPRIATELY named.
I also have to get ready for ShiMMer, but I’m being a really lazy writer and just going as a reader. It means I can wander around and say hi to everyone, and not be stuck behind a table. It also means that all I have to do is pack some undies, stuff in some t-shirts, and I’m good to go!
Now PARIS is going to be a bit more involved.
New Year’s Resolutions
Post more on social media!
Exercise more (within reason!)
Drink less coffee (have already given up)
Do something I haven’t done before.
Book Rec of the Week
I am going with my own book since I just released it a week ago! One! I get one big-headed moment a book release.
A Novel of Plenty, California
As one of the top trauma surgeons in Plenty’s ER, Dr. Taggart Hayes knows how to fix broken things—fractured legs, ruptured spleens, allergies, and traumatic brain injuries. He can put them back together good as new.
A broken heart, though? That’s a bit trickier. Especially when it’s his own.
When Tag swipes on the photo of the hot man in the dating app, he just wants a distraction from the wreck that used to be his life. A one-night stand with a safely inappropriate stranger, no names, no feelings, and no complications.
But the headless photo on the app belongs to a man who isn’t so easy to forget the next day... or the next week. And it becomes increasingly clear that Bass is neither safe nor uncomplicated. Drawn into the dark, criminal underworld his lover inhabits, Tag has to decide if the cure for his broken heart is worse than the disease.

Deal of the Day
Today you can get an ebook by Andrew Grey for 99 Cents! Ends at midnight ET.
Born with a silver spoon in his mouth, Brian Paulson has lived a life of luxury and ease. If he’s been left lonely because of his family’s pursuit of wealth and their own happiness, he figures it’s a small price to pay for what he sees as most important: money.
Cade McAllister has never had it easy. He works two jobs to support himself, his mother, and his special-needs brother. They don’t have much, but to Cade, love and taking care of the people who are important to him mean more than material possessions. When Cade is mugged in the park, he can’t afford to lose what little he has, and he’s grateful for Brian’s intervention.
Cade is given a chance to return the favor when Brian’s grandfather passes away and Brian’s assets are frozen. Cade offers Brian a place to stay and helps him find work, and the two men grow closer as they learn the good and the bad of the very different worlds they come from. Just as Brian is starting to see there’s more to life than what money can buy, a clause in his grandfather’s will could send their relationship up in smoke.
I’ve never understood the appeal of beards. Why invite more grooming into your life? Minimise! Minimise! If I had my way I’d interact with the world as a pre-groomed hologram from my tank!
I love this idea! It’s also so pretty! I love the tide pool ones so much, but them I do love the seashore! Miss Wondersmith is just astonishingly talented.
I Create Detailed Glass And Ceramic Artwork Inspired By Nature… And Here Is Why I Have Decided To Give It All Away!
Wouldn’t it be amazing to stumble on a fairytale picnic in the woods and be invited to join? Have you ever wanted to go on a *real* treasure hunt for buried treasure hidden by codes and clues? Those examples may sound fantastical, but as Miss Wondersmith, it is my goal to make them a reality!
Since I haven’t been able to get this song out of my head since I watched The Witcher - which I adored, by the way! - I decided to share it with a wider audience.
(Usually, in case you were curious, a chronic lack of organisational skills!)
