In my opinion they are. I KNOW this one is! I’ve been mostly absent from the site for a LONG time. Between health stuff and writing, I’ve neglected everything else. But I have good news on both fronts… I’m getting my gall-bladder out, which will take care of my newest batch of symptoms. No date yet, but as soon as I can get it done. We were supposed to have “Summon Dorn” out on Valentines day. Didn’t happen. Damn gall bladder took a LOT of writing hours from me. Sick kids took a BUNCH more. So we rescheduled for March 1st. Also didn’t happen. Somewhere in there my laptop died so I bit the bullet and replaced the one I really liked a LOT. With a laptop that runs Windows 8. Lost 3 writing days to getting everything moved from backup – yes, I backed up, Thank God! – and learning … Continue reading →
The Romance Studio is giving the 10th Annual “Cupid And Psyche Awards” (CAPA) on Valentines Day 2013. To celebrate, they’re having a party leading up to the awards. They’re giving away an Amazon Gift Card (value $100 minimum) to one lucky reader and lots of other prizes from the TRS prize vault and participating authors too! As usual, I’m late to the Party – I missed posting all day yesterday and today – but I intend to make up for lost time! Over Feb 13th and 14th, I’ll be posting regularly with info and excerpts from all my books. This event also marks the beginning of our gearing up for the official release of “Archangels Creed 2: Dorn”, so my posts will have exclusive excerpts and info that won’t be posted again, anywhere. In order to reach as many readers as possible, I’ll be pasting some of those posts here, as well … Continue reading →
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 →
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 →
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 →
Last week I announced that TIGHT SPACES was finished. That ended up changing as I edited the final scene and wasn’t satisfied with it, but it didn’t take long to rewrite the scene so that it fit the story better. So, it is, indeed, finished. All but one thing. TIGHT SPACES NEEDS YOU! There’s only one problem left. My cover artist, Timothy White (keep watching here for more on him) gave me two versions of the cover to choose from. I LOVE them BOTH! Every time I think I’ve decided definitely which one to use, I end up changing my mind. So, with time running out, I need help deciding. That’s where YOU come in. Tomorrow, Sept 3, I’ll reveal both versions of the cover. I need YOU to tell me which version you like best, and help me decide which to use! I’ll announce the decision on Friday, Sept … Continue reading →
Hi, all. This week’s Six is from Tight Spaces again. It’s FINISHED at last! Keep an eye on the Double Dare Page - I’ll reveal the cover and announce the expected release date SOON! For now, this will have to do This snippet is from early in the novella, as Amy is going into the Double Dare Club. The doorman is selecting his evening’s prospects from among the female clientele as they enter the club. “That’s an awfully nice dress for a dump like this, Sweetheart.” She licked her lips before answering, causing heat to flare in his eyes. “It’s my favorite, so I decided what the hell.” “If you get tired of the jerks inside, come on back out and keep me company a while. I know how to treat a lady.” His voice, rumbly and intimate, promised a good time. Come back next week, for Six Sentences from the final … Continue reading →
Today we have Erotic Romance Author Malia Mallory to talk about the value of a book’s cover. These days, the cover is more important than ever, since it has to catch the reader’s eye all by itself – no cute store displays, no table in the center aisle, no big shelf stocked with a hundred copies. Just that lonely little cover there in the virtual bookstore, along with all the others. Now, here’s Malia: Enticing Erotica Covers I recently decided some of my covers needed an upgrade. I’d been looking around at the fabulous covers of my author friends and feeling jealous. In fact, I was becoming concerned it might even be hurting my sales. I needed to step it up. So, what to do? I contacted a cover artist who had done some work I admired. She did a new design concept for my ABCs of Erotica series. I … Continue reading →
I’ve been away from Six Sentence Sunday for a while, but it’s time I get back to it. This Six is from a contemporary erotic romance novella I’m working on. The thing really needs a title, and fast, so if you have any suggestions, leave a comment! And be sure to stop by the Sunday Six blog to see a list of participants so you can check out their work, too! She’d never felt that way before, and refused to examine it, for fear of breaking the spell. Sex with Jessie was a whole new experience, too, especially the sense of contentment that followed. Normally, she would be restless, vaguely uncomfortable, needing something to do. Leaning there against Jessie’s chest, with his breath stirring her hair and his fingers absently stroking her shoulder while his voice slid around her in an almost tactile way felt indescribably right. What would it be … Continue reading →
