***UPDATE – Natalya Lakhno, you are the winner of the Name My Book contest with your entry, MANAGING BLAKE.  Thank you to all who entered. I’m so excited or this next book in the Outlaws of Baseball Series. Tentative release date is April 2018.



I’m having a heck of a time coming up with a title for my latest book which will release in early April, 2018. I decided I need all the help I can get, so I came up with a fun idea. Ask my readers to NAME MY BOOK! And to up the fun factor, if I use your suggestion, the winner will become a named character in Book 5!

Here’s a peak at how this book is playing out. The hero is the Outlaw’s team manager, Blake Anderson and Caris Sloane, a psychologist. Several of her girlfriends are involved with Outlaw players and they have skirted around each other when at the same events. They both have avoided long-term relationships. A night of fun and sexy times at Maverick and Kelsey’s wedding (the hero & heroine from Book 1) leave them thinking they can just be friends with benefits until they actually spend time together; outside the bedroom. Just one problem, or maybe two. He wants a traditional wife to stay at home, have half a dozen kids and a menagerie of pets and Caris… doesn’t. She thinks her career is enough.

My past titles in the series are SAVING MAVERICK, CATCHING LUKE, and CLAIMING CONNOR. The series prequel is titled MISTLETOE & SCROOGE. So I want to keep the —ING theme going with either the hero or heroine’s name. Everything I’ve thought of sounds corny or just… not… right. HELP ME…LOL

To enter, please comment below with your title suggestion, and be sure to include an email address where I can reach you if you’re the winner. I’ll choose a winner by December 15th.

Now, go forth and hit me with what you got!


ps – here are my inspiration photos for  Blake and Caris. *sigh*

    How about Negotiating With Blake = you have your -ing theme and the story’s theme plus a play on a baseball theme!

    I’ll let you know if I come up with anything else. LOL I love coming up with titles!

  2. Margaret

    Sounds like a good book. Looking forward to it. Submitted “Enlightening Blake” as the title. Women can be wife/mother/career just as men are husbands/fathers and in Blake’s case General Manager (career).
    Happy Holidays

I would love to hear from you!
