Playlist for Book Two & More



     I created my playlist for my Book Two titled “A Dead Ringer for Katie REAL TIME”. Book Two will be released this winter and will be twice as long as Book One and tie it up nicely. My new playlist is under my ‘Travel with Tia’ tab (and has 73 songs and clips), check it out if you get the chance. It’s on my Author YouTube.

And I’ve chosen the models and location for my Book Two Cover, I can’t wait to share when completed. Shouldn’t be too long…

Plus lots more this fall and winter such as Location Inspiration, construction in Real Time, a new Interview Segment with my Book Two and more–

Below are also some highlights and favorites (in pics) within my last month

with A Weezer coffee mug and tagalongs…

& what I’m reading/listening to on audible (which mentions and visits my alma mater GMU)…

So stay tuned &

Have a great Tuesday! XOXO Tia



Hi Everyone:

It’s Friday the 13th and Halloween is approaching…hope everyone has a safe beginning to their weekend and weekend!

Today I’m going to share a couple of pics that my readers shared with me:

A friend of mine shared the image of her Amazon order of my book and my cousin shared a picture (it was so nice of them to send) so sharing…


I will have more updates about my book two with cover, a new interview segment with the release of my book two, real time inspiration and shares, and more.

That’s all for today! Have a great weekend,


A Reader & A Review



     So one of my readers, who happens to be a long time friend shared a lovely photo of my book yesterday…I love the Halloween look of the picture, especially since Halloween is approaching, so sharing. She is very talented in a variety of things, especially photography and this is spooky fun…

     And one of my fellow male readers, who is definitely not my typical audience, in other words his words not a book he would generally pick up, but he did since he knows me and thought the book was edgy (not cookie cutter) which he loved. He really liked the style of writing and he wants to read more and find out what happens in Book Two! And to give you an idea of his taste in reading, he loves the Jack Reacher books…

Well, thanks for reading guys…


Rock On!



Tea Time



Hello Angels and Knights:

It’s been a very busy week in my neck of the woods with some events, and among those events I had my first Book Blitz for my Book One this past week which was a lot of fun…

There is also a few more days to enter my Giveaway (which is linked in the update below this one), and I updated my Mood Music playlist on my Author YouTube with two new Weezer songs (both awesome songs) from their upcoming album that I’m really looking forward to at the end of October. Just visit my Travel with Tia tab and scroll down to my Author YouTube link for Mood Music.

Also a couple of new book related things I wanted to share on this first of October  was the Katie Cass coat I spotted while out shopping the other day…I took a pic and may go back and buy it, but it caught my eye and I immediately thought of my book heroine so sharing…



…as well as a pic from one of my all time favorite action series Die Hard specifically the Die Hard 2 flick Die Harder…

I love Bruce Willis in these and there may be a little John McLane in my Detective Brian McKenzie, and this actress definitely has the Katie Cass vibe going with the wavy hair and basic courier style of my heroine.


I would definitely say that is finding inspiration in unusual places…as well as Tavern inspiration below (within the Town of Clifton) for my Angel Bay…  


Yes I know I already shared a few pics of the town but it is lovely…

 And an actor I always thought of portraying my character Eric who is Peter Sleigh (Rock Stars) new friend and driver on tour, actor Nick Cannon, who also catches Sasha’s eye (Katie’s best friend) and the rock band’s Fan Club president…

For my next Tea Time share I will have a schedule of my upcoming book related events which will include an idea of when my Book Two Cover reveal will be shared and more : )

Plus a get to know the author update…

Thanks for Reading and Have a Rock & Roll fun-filled night!

XOXO Tia Brady

A Giveaway, Flowers, an Excerpt & More!


Hi Everyone:

 Next week is my Book Blitz, and I’m looking forward to it! I like feedback and I’m curious to know what people think : ) I’m sure it will be interesting since quite a few have signed up, around 100…

     So today I’m sharing a few things before the weekend. First, the information for my giveaway, since it starts on Monday where you can enter if interested in winning some free prizes…just follow the link below the pic. The giveaway includes a free copy of my book, a mini poster of my book cover, a coffee mug, and a music CD:

     I’m also sharing another excerpt for release week, which includes some unusual happenings within the small town of Angel Bay (and is between Katie, next door neighbor Luke, Eric the limo driver & Peter Rock Star)…and next to the excerpt is my actress choice for my heroine Katie Cass.

I’ve already chosen my musician choice, but this is my actress choice.

I’ve chosen this actress for a variety of reasons, and she definitely fits the appearance of Katie (athletic, busty, gorgeous) with spunk and humor as she’s shown in her movies …

Alexandra Daddario would be perfect:

Alexandra with Zac Efron

from the recent release of Baywatch (which I just saw) and as I was watching I kept thinking, that is Katie…

And finally…

I’m also sharing flowers I received last week, since really pretty:


Okay, that’s all Ladies & Gents!

Hope everyone has a Rockin’ weekend! XOXO Tia

Hardcopies of my Book & an Excerpt!


Hi Everyone:

This has been an interesting couple of days! Still trying to figure things out, with mess-ups and mistakes, but I am happy to share that my hardcopies arrived yesterday…

…so, today I’m sharing pictures of them (both the paper and hardback), with the mini poster of my Book Cover framed (on the right). It’s the front cover of my book, and will be part of a giveaway for my Book Blitz next week, as well as a copy of my paperback, a coffee mug, and a music CD. Not to confuse my Book Blitz with my Book Tour which will be later on. But I think my favorite copies are the paperback that were printed by Createspace. The ink and overall picture quality looks good, but then I like the cream colored paper of the other venues a tad better… so I guess I like different things about each…


     I’m also sharing another excerpt that is between my heroine Katie and her next door neighbor and colleague Luke…they’ve known each other a while, and Luke is an interesting character in that there is so much more than meets the eye…

Check it out…

Excerpt Luke & Katie6

Have a great

rock and roll day!

This excerpt takes place at my heroine Katie’s front door
