CONTEST and guest blog with Wynter Daniels
Wynter’s highjacking my blog today and she’s offering her latest release Tropic of Trouble in a contest (more on that later).
For now, here’s Wynter!
Honey vs. Vinegar
My mother has a habit of being a bit thorny with sales clerks and restaurant staff, which has gotten worse as she has grown older. I cringe when I see her dissatisfaction building. I know the explosion is imminent.
I used to be less patient with people until I ran my own business for a while and had to occasionally deal with people who felt they hadn’t been treated well. And I’m not saying I won’t stand up for myself when I feel I’ve been wronged. But I’ve learned to embrace the opposite situation.
The times when service is really good, or someone performs their job even a little better than required, I am sure to give them an extra thank you, a bigger tip or even a note of gratitude.
After following this practice for a while, I’ve even made an attempt to turn on the charm when someone doesn’t meet my expectations. And you know what? The old adage is true – you do get more with honey than with vinegar. An unpleasant situation is way easier to turn around if the other party really wants to help you.
I’ve found a thank you note to someone doing a really good job not only imparts my gratitude, but it often makes that person’s day. Even a simple phone call to someone or even to their boss can work wonders. How great does it feel to know you’ve put a smile on someone’s face? Well, the knowing will put a smile on yours.
*** CONTEST ALERT *** CONTEST ALERT *** CONTEST ALERT ***
Thank you, Tina for letting me hang out here today. I am celebrating the release today of my first erotic romantic suspense, Tropic of Trouble from Ellora’s Cave.
Here’s a little about the book:
When Kelsey Ackerman’s assistant at her used bookstore is murdered, the police label it a botched robbery by a desperate drug addict. But Kelsey suspects the perpetrator was looking for a rare Shakespeare volume that someone unknowingly donated. Now a killer’s sights are set on Kelsey.
Jail guard Jason Jones only wants to protect her, but after suffering a controlling father and an abusive ex-husband, Kelsey wants nothing to do with the confident, hot sergeant. Until the danger becomes crystal clear, and the only man who can save her is the very man she can’t resist.
You can read an excerpt HERE or purchase the book (or any of my other books) HERE.
I will draw one commenter to receive a free copy of Tropic of Trouble.
