It’s been a HORRIBLY long time since I’ve blogged! Apologies, for more than one reason, are in order. First, I missed the posts for the last week of my Tight Spaces Kick Off Blog Tour, including the finale to announce the winners of the giveaway! I have good reasons, I promise. (FYI, the finale post will go up in a few days, within a week.) Second, I owe the members of my blogging network extreme apologies, since I haven’t been active there either. As a consequence, I haven’t Tweeted the announcements for their blog posts. Sorry, guys! I PROMISE, I’m getting back to it! Third, I’m sorry, Azure! As you know, Azure Boone, BFF and Crit Partner, and I are working on a joint project that will seriously rock your world. The first book of our Paranormal Romance series, “Archangel’s Creed, The Summoning I, Kassern” is moving fast and we … 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 →
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 →
This week’s Six is from Tight Spaces, my Erotic Contemporary Romance Novella, Book One in my new series, The Double Dare Club. I’m finally closing in on The End for this one! I only have the final scene left to write and edit, so just a couple hours work, and I can type “The End”. In this snippet, Amy and Jesse have left a nasty confrontation with Amy’s Ex that nearly tanked their lovely evening. With the rest of the night salvaged, Jesse wants revenge, so he searches out a member of the Double Dare Club Security. “Sounds like the guy. Listen, Ray, he’s been hassling my friend here. Said some stuff that made her feel really bad. Is there any way you could make sure she doesn’t have to deal with him anymore tonight? Until we leave here, at least.” Jesse slipped the bouncer a bill, concealing the … Continue reading →
This week’s Six Sunday is from the same Erotic Romance Novella the last couple have been from. Now, last week, the plan was that this story’s title would be “Dare To Stare”. Since then, during edits, the focus of the story has changed, and the entire concept evolved. This story has become the foundation of a series of contemporary Erotic Romances. The series, titled The Double Dare Club, is based on the nightclub introduced in this story, the Double Dare. For the series, all the couples will be connected in some way to the Double Dare – one might work there, they might meet there, or meet in a fender-bender in the street out front. Because of the change in focus for the current story, “Dare To Stare” no longer fits as the title. The new title, referring to the smex-in-the-closet scene, and other incidents, is Tight Spaces. The following … 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 →

Recently, my friends and critique partners, Azure Boone and Jennifer James, and I decided to to start a group blog. The general idea was for it to be a place where we could jointly promote our work, talk about things important to us, things we find funny, and just generally be a little silly. And so, the idea for Love Scenes & Wet Dreams, a.k.a. LSWD, was born. We have several ideas for the blog, some of which will take a while to implement. For now, we’ll all incredibly busy, between writing and raising our families, and we don’t have as much time to devote to it as we’d like. So, we’re concentrating on the basics, getting everything situated the way we’d like and building content. When we have time to catch our breath, we’ll switch up the focus to getting some different things going. Right now, Azure has up a … Continue reading →
*WARNING: The following post is a frank discussion of sexual practices and situations some might find offensive. If you are under 18, or find such discussions objectionable, please explore my other posts and pages.* That’s that, so let’s get on with the important stuff, m’kay? One of the big pet peeves that both readers and writers seem to have with romance novels is lack of realism in matters pertaining to orgasms. If I had a nickel for every time I’ve read a comment someone left regarding the implausibility of multiple orgasms for both Hero and Heroine, well… You know the rest of the line. So, that got me thinking… Yes, thank you, I’m well aware of the hazards associated with that activity! Are multiple orgasms impossible? For just males? Or for both males and females? (See that? I’m pretending I don’t already know the answer ) Many people, of both … Continue reading →
