Recently, a TikTok on BookTok went viral about reading the “Classics”
My books are not classics. I know this. My books aren't meant to stand up in a literary classroom, but their purpose is to bring joy and light into people's lives. I don't want my books to be analyzed and directed. I want them to be read and enjoyed for what they are- spicy feel good romance novels.
As such, here are some t-shirts that I will be purchasing because the classics aren't what make me happy.
Romance Books Are Good For The Soul. This beautiful t-shirt is perfect for the romance novel enthusiast in your life! Let them show off their book-loving self!
• 100% cotton face • Front pouch pocket • Matching flat drawstrings • 3-panel hood
College student Ada has found the one thing that really revs her engine: Coffee. And she's found the perfect coffee shop in Perk Me Up. She likes the baristas, the other customers, and she especially likes their lattes. She likes it so much, she decides to apply for a job.
But that's when the perfect brew turns cold. The owner of the place, Nate, is a real pain in the coffeepot. He's a bit older than Ada, a bit wiser, but a whole lot grumpier. But on top of those hunched, overworked shoulders is a big brain with big dreams. His secrets threaten to take the whole café down with him if he doesn't get help. But all that is just a façade to disguise a failing business. And as Ada works her tail off to save this small town coffee shop, she might just find herself getting closer to the man himself.
Brew yourself a pot of coffee, because this small town contemporary romance from New York Times bestseller Krista Lakes is sure to make this an all-nighter!
A month ago, Radish invited me to their application. I'm always looking for new and exciting ways to sell books, so I decided to give it a try. I'm having a blast with their read-by-the-chapter model. It's a slightly different style of writing (each chapter is under 4k words and needs to end on a cliffhanger to entice readers to buy the next chapter!).
I wrote “Single Dad's Surrogate” under a different pen name, but it fits so well under the Radish design that I wanted to bring it back to Krista.
They say life begins after 40, but Cassie ain't feelin' it. Divorced and feeling trapped by her job, she wants to let loose for her friend's tropical beach wedding. She decides to let her hair down and get a little unpredictable. That's when she meets a handsome bartender, Wyatt.

Suddenly, her predictable life gets turned upside down when she sees her picture splashed across the Internet.
