Santa Left Something for You Here

Well, not really HERE here, but close enough. Azure Boone (best friend, co-author, critique partner) and I recently released our first joint project, Archangels Creed 1: Kassern.

And while we’re meeting the demands of very active families, we’re also writing in every spare second, and every not-so-spare second. Archangels Creed 2: Dorn is well under … Continue reading

Catching Up, News, New Releases & More

Between a Hubby with bronchitis, 3 tiny boys with a stomach virus, battling a week-long migraine, and trying to help my Mom a little, I haven’t had a great deal of time left over for writing.

Long Time, No See

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

Are You Naughty Or Nice?

  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.

It’s LIVE! At Last, TIGHT SPACES Is Out!

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

Not The White Rabbit, But “I’m Late! I’m Late!”

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

  • Just Sayin’

    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.
