Amazon Kindle: 6 Days to Get Lucky (A Nick Valentine Story #2)
Blurb: Mixologist Nick Valentine never thought love was in the cards, but after a scorching Valentine’s Day kiss from bouncer Davis “FatBoy” Newman, he’s beginning to think it’s possible. After four weeks of dry spell, Nick’s losing patience—it’s time FatBoy stop acting the gentleman and just throw him over the bar or Nick may just change his mind.
All FatBoy wants is a shot at winning Nick’s heart. As long as meddling bosses, an Irish hurling team and a bar riot don’t ruin his chances forever, he might just get lucky and take the man of his dreams, home.
Reaching across the empty bed next to me, I rode out the last waves of my dream alone. I could still feel his phantom kiss on my lips and the sensation of a hand stroking along my thigh.
The rest of it was just a blur of emotions and sticky residue on my sheets—though I could guess at it without much effort. FatBoy Newman had been a specter haunting me at work so it was no great leap to assume he’d shouldered his way into my dreams as well.
In fact, he was at the root of my problem: I’d been having a hell of a dry spell.
Four weeks of near misses had done nothing but stoke my bad mood and turn my balls a lovely shade of indigo that matched my jeans…
Four weeks of dashed hopes…
Four weeks since the most romantic kiss of my life…
Four weeks of nothing.
Fuck the South and its mythology of the Southern Gentleman—if FatBoy Newman didn’t stop treating me like a delicate flower and throw me up against a wall soon, I was going to explode.
It was six days until St. Patrick’s Day, and FatBoy had until then to make his move, or I was moving on.

1) What are your ambitions for your writing career?
Ambitions? Well since you’re putting it out there I’ll say it: NY Times Bestseller with enough writing income to live comfortably. So thank you all for overbuying my books from now until eternity <3.
2) How many published books do you have? Can you tell us something about them?
Lucky will be my 7th and I have a short –Nuts To You which will be the 8th coming out through Dreamspinner in June. 6 Days to Valentine the prequel for Lucky was actually the first novella I’d written for publication – though it went through several iterations before it was acceptable, so it ended up being my third published after Prodigal Wolf, co-written with Sara York about a clan of wolf shifters living in South Carolina, and Snow Globe which a Christmas short set in Minnesota. Can This Be Real is a long novella set in Portland about a cop and a chef, My Marine co-written with Sara York, and Last First Kiss are both shorts.
3) Your main character wants to cook something special for his love interest. What does he make?
Nick doesn’t cook. But he’s a mixologist so he’d invent a drink for FatBoy. Maybe a whiskey float: pecan ice cream in a couple of shots of smoky scotch from Nick’s favorite Scottish distillery.
4) What are you working on at the moment? What’s it about?
The Art of Pie, which is due in June—is set in the same Oregon beach town I spent a great deal of time in growing up. My grandparents had a house seven miles up the Rogue River and I use the house, the river, and the town as the setting for my story about two summer friends meeting again after nearly twenty years.
5) Do you aim for a set amount of words/pages per day?
I aim for writing every day and I like to partner up with another writing buddy doing sprints. It helps keep me glued to my keyboard and mostly writing rather than facebooking!
