Welcome to Nicola Cameron Writes! I’m your hostess Nic — make yourself at home and enjoy a wide variety of romance stories (primarily SF, fantasy, and paranormal, but I do write the occasional contemporary and historical) with chewy plot-filled centers, and all the bon mots you can handle. Oh, and if you see one or, er, five cats, just ignore them — they like to think they run the place.

In addition to my Blog, I also host a Bookshelf of my published work, a short About page (all true, I swear), a Free Reads page with some of my flash and short fiction for your reading enjoyment, a Newsletter page where you can sign up for Nicola’s Newsy News (low traffic, I promise!), and just for giggles a Merchandise page because everyone deserves an “Olympic Cove – Get Wet!” t-shirt.

Thanks for stopping by!

Come see Nicola in Vegas!

I am fully vaccinated, have gotten my booster shot and flu shot, and thus I will be heading to Las Vegas to attend 20Booksto50K® 2021 at Bally’s on the Strip!

What is 20Booksto50K® 2021, you ask? Why, it’s one of the most amazing indie author and publisher convention in the world, where we gather to learn how to improve both our craft and our business acumen. I’m bringing a notebook and I hope to come home with all kinds of good intel on how to create effective ads and improve my promotion game.

But wait, there’s more! There is going to be an enormous signing event at the hotel on Friday, November 12. It’s free (although you may have to pay for parking), and I’ll be bringing two complete sets of my Two Thrones books as well as a selection of other titles. If you want to pick up some absolutely stupendous books by talented indie authors, come on by and check it out!

Cross Current now available

Okay, all you Olympic Cove fans, get ready because Cross Current (Olympic Cove Book Four) is finally available, woohoo! You can get it from Amazon and other ebook retailers, and the print version will be out next week. (And I’m musing about writing a short story that details how Fionn and Duncan met in Boston. Hey, it all started with a bar fight in a mer bar––you know you want to read that!)

And Matt thought being a high school teacher was tough…

Fresh from a divorce, history teacher Matt Taber decides to rent a cottage on Olympic Cove and relax before school starts up in the fall. But the Fates have other plans for him, in the form of four mates––a gentle giant of a merman and three selkies who have to satisfy a royal demand––and a change of career.

Can Matt adjust to this new reality before the Mad Nereid starts spreading yet more chaos in Olympic Cove, or will he lose his mates––and his life?

One Sweet Christmas now available

Welp, I finally did it! My GBBO-influenced holiday romance One Sweet Christmas (written as Natasha M. Stark) is now available on Amazon for $2.99, or you can read it through Kindle Unlimited. If you like flirty banter over Genoise batter, this is the holiday read for you!

Take a Colorado ski town at Christmas, add a handsome baker, an unemployed personal assistant, and a dash of social media panic, and stir…

PA Rose Shaffer doesn’t believe in Hallmark moments or small town romance. So when her car breaks down in a Colorado ski town a few days before Christmas, she does her best to ignore the hot local baker—until she gets roped into helping him make an emergency wedding cake. Now she has to placate a Bridezilla social media influencer, pull off a genuine baking miracle, and resist the lure of chocolate eyes and a cinnamon roll heart.

Eric Kaufman thinks he’s finally lived down his failure on Let’s Bake, America! after a social media influencer picks him to bake her wedding cake. But when disaster strikes, a pretty stranger has to help him pull off the bake of a lifetime. To his dismay, he finds himself falling for the smart, funny Rose, even though she’s on her way to LA. Can he talk her into giving small town life—and him—a chance?
