A Writer’s April Fool’s Day by Stacy Hoff


April Fool’s Day is day for pranksters. I wonder, by taking a short break from my writing, am I playing a joke on myself? Keeping up my fast pace of turning out books has been both thrilling, as well as a hard challenge. Since I just enjoyed my fifth release, BETTING ON LOVE IN VEGAS (book 1 of my new BUILDING LOVE series) I thought I’d take a few days off for myself.


Rewarding myself with free time is difficult because I also want to keep up my publication pace. It’s a tricky balance. Time off gives me breathing room to recharge my creative batteries. But too much time off can throw off my writing schedule. Book 2 of the BUILDING LOVE series comes out this October, and book 3 has yet to be written. I’ve got deadlines to keep up. Oy!

Will playing a little hooky make me an April fool? I hope not to find out. I’m trying to persuade myself to get back into the saddle before my entire writing schedule falls off the wagon.

What do you do to keep motivated, and stay that way?

Book blurb for BETTING ON LOVE IN VEGAS (Book 1 of the BUILDING LOVE series)

Catherine “Cat” Warner has problems. The profits from her inns are down. The pressure from her parents is up. Her love life is non-existent. But Cat did manage to get the attention of tough, powerful, gorgeous hotel magnate Ty Orland. Unfortunately, his interest in her is for all the wrong reasons. Instead of wanting Cat, this debonair CEO only wants her land—a parcel he desperately needs for his next big development deal. Too bad, it’s not for sale. A people pleaser by nature, Cat knows to stand strong. If she caves in to the demands of this sexy, alluring man, it will be her own neck on the line.

Ty Orland has a lot of things going for him. Success. Power. Respect. Unfortunately, he’s also got an old chip on his shoulder and a new financial nightmare. His development deal is going down in flames—and fast. His only way out is if Cat sells him her strategically located parcel. But romancing the land from her is not easy when love gets in the way. The woman is as beautiful as she is beguiling. And Ty no longer knows which prize is more valuable.
