Cover of Joy Your Way to a Bestseller by Donna Alward and Nancy Cassidy

Have you lost your writing mojo? Has your Muse abandoned you? Is the business of being a writer sucking away all the joy you used to feel in the process?


If finding the time to write has become a chore rather than a pleasure; if your prose seems forced and getting words on the page takes longer than it used to, this book is for you.


Find the meaning in your writing once again and go for the story, rather than the page count! Donna Alward, freelance editor and NYT Bestselling author of fifty feel-good novels and Nancy Cassidy, editor and owner of The Red Pen Coach editorial group, give you the tools to rediscover the joy in your writing.


Throw out the rules, the timers, and the word counts! Discover more meaning in your creativity and enjoy every minute. Let your joy lead to higher productivity, resulting in more opportunity for success, increased readership, and higher sales.

Unfortunately, she can’t keep their brief but passionate encounter far from her thoughts. When she seeks him out for reasons unrelated to their chemistry, the worst happens, and Fia is attacked by a madman.

Betrayed by someone he should have been able to trust above all, Acer spends the next two decades of his life avoiding entanglements that have any chance of ending with a knife in his back. The MC life provides a safe way to have personal connections and loyalty due to its simple rule: betray the club and punishment will be severe.

As Acer and Fia fight their growing feelings, his club is in danger from a new and different kind of enemy. Will his refusal to put his full trust in anyone, including the woman he’s falling for, end up destroying more than betrayal ever could?
