Last week I posted Six Sentences from my Work In Progress, an untitled erotic contemporary romance, and asked if anyone had ideas for a title. A couple of you had wonderful suggestions. Well, now it has a title, thanks to my friend and critique partner, Azure Boone. Having the advantage of reading a major scene, she suggested “Dare To Stare”, because of the scene where the hero catches the heroine staring at him. Instead of looking away, she continues to stare, bold as brass.

I’m planning to self-publish this one, and had hoped for a mid-August release. Unfortunately, the time factor hasn’t worked out, so I’m pushing it back to end of the month.
