Hey, everyone, please welcome author Tory Michaels to the blog today! She comes to us by way of Sizzling PR on her Dream-Walker War tour. I owe Tory a HUGE apology – this post was supposed to go live early this morning, and I put the wrong date in the scheduler! Getting the date wrong seems to be a habit – I did that on another post a few days ago. Matter of fact, I think I set them up at the same time, so maybe it was just that day… So, Tory, I hope you’ll accept my apologies, and hugs. I’m sorry that the chaos currently infesting my life spilled over into yours! Hi, Kenra, and thanks for having me here on your blog today. Your topic is one that is a constant battle for me, finding the balance between my writing and the rest of my life. I have … Continue reading →
The Naughty or Nice Giveaway Hop was organized by Nat @ Reading Romances! Welcome to my stop on the Naughty or Nice Giveaway Hop!! First, in what has been a pattern for me recently, I’m LATE getting the post up! I even had it scheduled and everything, but I put the wrong damn date in the scheduler. Figures. But, better late than never. I’m giving away a copy of my VERY NAUGHTY novella, Tight Spaces! With the first anniversary of the messy break up of a long-term relationship bearing down, Amy has the blues. When her friends suggest an evening at the Double Dare, she reluctantly agrees to go along. She doesn’t do the casual sex thing, but it’ll be good to spend time with her friends. Seeing Jesse at the Double Dare immediately cheers her up. She’s fantasized over him for months. The evening gets more pleasant as … Continue reading →
Join me in welcoming Jennifer Malone Wright, author of THE VAMPIRE HUNTER’S DAUGHTER, to the blog today. Don’t forget to enter the GIVEAWAY below! Jennifer is offering some fantastic prizes! You’ve noticed how listening to a particular type of music, or even a specific song, will put you in a mood to do certain things. Well, authors are no different. Many of us go so far as to create a special play list to listen to as we work on each project. It sort of prepares our mind, gets us into ‘character’, to live in that world and write what we see. Today, Jennifer is here to talk about the music she listened to as she worked on THE VAMPIRE HUNTER’S DAUGHTER. Top Ten Songs on my Vampire Hunter’s Daughter Playlist So, a lot of people seem really interested to know what kind of songs are on my playlist for … Continue reading →
I confess, I’m a horrible procrastinator. If I have a deadline, I’ll do most of a job ahead, and save the last bit to do as the clock is ticking off the deadline. This project was no different. TIGHT SPACES has been finished for a couple of weeks, and the release date decided. But did I upload it early? Nope! Waited until 36 hrs before the intended release. And, even though it was finished, I still added part of a scene Thursday evening, right before uploading. I’d hoped it would go live this morning, but it didn’t until mid-afternoon. But, it’s available now!! Buy TIGHT SPACES A lonely woman goes dancing with friends to kick the Bad Breakup Anniversary Blues. Her fantasy-man is willing to help, until her lowlife ex ambushes him. With the first anniversary of the messy break up of a long-term relationship bearing down, Amy has the … Continue reading →
Please join me in welcoming author Heather Long to the blog today. She’s here to talk about some life lessons everyone needs to learn, but some never do, and her book, Yesterday’s Heroes. Don’t forget to enter the giveaway for a chance to win a copy of Yesterday’s Heroes or Marshal of Hel Dorado! Everything I Needed to Know I Learned in Comic Books My mother never saw value in reading comic books. She called it “a waste of money” and, worse, “a waste of my time.” Unfortunately for her, I was a stubborn kid. When she ‘threatened’ to never pay for my comics again, I got a part time job and paid for them myself. When she refused to get me a ride to the comic book store, I took four different buses a total of twelve miles—including a half-mile walk to the bus stops on either end. When … Continue reading →
I intended to reveal the cover that won the vote, and announce the expected release date for Tight Spaces on Saturday. As you know by now, that didn’t happen. Unfortunately, Hubby made plans without telling me, and dragged me along last minute. I took my laptop, but without internet access, didn’t accomplish a great deal. Hell, I even missed posting my Six Sentence Sunday! So, here I go, playing catch up! The cover vote was incredibly close! With 80 votes, Red squeaked by to win with 42 votes to Blue’s 38. Expected Release Date for Tight Spaces: Double Dare Club #1 – Saturday, September 15, 2012! ~~~~~~ The limited time over the weekend that I did have internet access, I used to arrange the Tight Spaces Kick Off Blog Tour to run September 17 thru October 12, 2012. As soon as I have the finalized itinerary, I’ll announce it here. The … Continue reading →
I'm a Romance Author - mainly Paranormal, but nearly all with fairly graphic intimate scenes. Those scenes serve to further the development of my plots and characters and are not included haphazardly to sell books or arouse readers.
I probably COULD tell the stories without the graphic parts, but I CHOOSE not to. I want to show the full scope of the developing relationship, and leaving out some of the most powerful and meaningful moments will deprive the reader of a measure of understanding and emotional reaction to the characters and their stories.
Since I write books intended for adult readers, I often have material on my website that is entirely unsuitable for younger readers. If you're under 18, or if you're easily offended by open discussion of sexual situations with frank language, you might want to look the other direction.
