Blogging from A to Z April Challenge — “A”

AWelcome to my third year of participation in the Blogging A to Z April Challenge!

My first year was mostly about my march toward publication of my debut novel with a few other random type posts interspersed.

Last year, I told a story about 500 words at a time.

This year, I’m going for a combination of visual and literary humor. Most of you won’t have seen my REGRETTABLE BOOKS before. But even if you have over at my sister site, (that’s my other pen name that will show up on some of the covers), I’ll start off the challenge with a brand new one!

So, the process is this:  each day I’ll post a book cover, a tagline and a blurb for a non-existent book. Hopefully they make you groan, laugh, or cringe because they are intended to be parodies of well-known tropes, mostly in romantic fiction, but some on the naughtier side (blurbs and pictures are safe). I also employ my “regrettable” skills at Photoshop Elements to design a book cover, because cover reveals are just so much fun! Remember, bad is good, good is bad.

A is for Amish.


Riding tame and plain has just met a road block named Grunt.


Sarah Yoder is a God-fearing woman, but her patriarchal society has pushed her to her breaking point. She’s ready to embrace her wilder side and cast off the yoke of plain and subservient (hair bun and practical white cotton panties excepted.)

Grunt is every woman’s desire and her worst nightmare in the same pair of biker boots. Orphaned as a kid and forced to grow up on the mean streets of Philadelphia, he’ll fight, steal and cheat for what he wants. That now happens to be the pretty little Amish female who knocked over his bike.

Daniel Lapp will do whatever it takes to protect Sarah, even if it means giving up his beloved horse and buggy for one hundred times the power between his legs. But is his love strong enough to see him through a deadly initiation ritual into Grunt’s club or will it unleash all the hidden demons neither he nor Sarah knew he had inside?

Be sure to visit me again tomorrow for: B: The Billionaire’s Cinderella.

  1. Happy April, Claire! *waves* Regrettable Books is a great idea! And having grown up in Amish country, this one gave me an extra chuckle. Looking forward to the rest of the alphabet.
