FOUR WILDE BROTHERS…ONE WILDE COUNTRY BAND
WILDE RIDERS is the first novel in a spicy new contemporary romance series about four sexy brothers, their small-town bar and their local country band. WILDE RIDERS can be read as a STAND ALONE NOVEL or as part of the SERIES.
Cooper Wilde spent his entire adolescence counting the days until he could escape rural northwest New Jersey. Now at 26, he can’t believe he’s coming back. But his late father’s bar, Haymakers, is in financial trouble and his older brother, Jake, has asked for Cooper’s help.
Riley Smith, 25, is fresh out of her Ivy League MBA program and wants to make an impression on her employer, H & C Bank. Her first solo assignment is a fraud investigation on a business loan they made to Haymakers.
Even though Old Town is less than 90 minutes from New York City, Riley feels like she’s stepped into another world in this remote, one-bar town. Riley can’t wait to do her business and get back to the city as quickly as her sports car will take her…until she meets Cooper Wilde. He’s not like the other guys in this rural town and Riley feels inexplicably attracted to him.

10 Tips for Becoming a Better Writer by Savannah Young
“Here are my tips to improve your writing:
1) Read as much as possible, especially in the genre in which you would like to write.
2) Write every day, preferably first thing in the morning before your mind gets cluttered with other things.
3) Set writing goals and stick to them.
4) Always finish a project before you start a new one, otherwise you’ll end up with files filled with unfinished projects.
5) Once you’ve finished a project, put it aside for two to four weeks before you even consider rewriting it. This will give you a fresh perspective on the work.
6) Keep in mind that first drafts are usually scrappy. Give yourself permission to write a scrappy first draft that you can fix during the rewrite process.
7) Never edit while you’re writing because it can block the creative process and flow.
8) Don’t compare yourself to other writers. You have a unique perspective and a unique voice.
9) Write the thing you absolutely have to write. If you’re not passionate about a project, no one else will be either.
10) Make writing a priority but remember to have fun!”
