And we’re back!

14 11 2011

I can’t tell you how nice it is to get a note from someone saying they liked Soul Mate! Those are the moments authors really get giddy. So thank you!

I’ve also had the question about when the next book is coming out – I’m hoping the Dare will get picked up soon, since I’ll be sending it out this week on submission.

There is also another book set in the same “world” as Soul Mate, with new characters that (I hope) you’ll love. That one is still in the process of being written.

And there’s the scifi. Which is now two different scifi stories. And a third has been popping into my head at inappropriate moments. I don’t know why scifi has become so prevalent all the sudden, but I’ll go with it. At least for now.

In the meantime, I have to get ready for Thanksgiving. Its crazy how close the holidays are coming. I’m so not ready for it!

Stay tuned, by the way. There will be several guests coming to stop by the blog over the next couple months!





So much to do, so little time….

3 11 2011

Sadly, I cannot participate in NANO this year. I’m too busy working on other things, and my Muse tends to enjoy shorter stories than 50,000 words. (Not that we won’t get there someday….)

But The Dare is nearly finished! This story is taking me a long time to get rid of. Not really sure why….

I’ve also been hard at work on a scifi, but I am at a standstill for the moment. Do I go for a menage, or stick with one man…. decisions, decisions….

What’s been taking up the majority of my time has been none of this, actually. Its been because I need to do promo and marketing for Soul Mate. But I kind of stink at it. So I’ve been making lists and trying to send it out for reviews. This is harder than it looks! Hopefully I’ll have some fun things to post soon in regards to guest blogs and such. So keep your eyes peeled!

Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!

Or here’s the official blurb and excerpt!

Blurb:
After her friend buys her a date from Madame Evangeline’s 1Night Stand service, Nora isn’t sure she can go through with it. Especially when she sees her date walk in. He’s way out of her league in more ways than just looks.

Angus MacInnes knows his time as Enforcer of his vampire clan is slowly driving him mad. When his brother sent him on a date, he assumed it would be a bust from the beginning. He didn’t expect to find the one woman he’s been hoping would appear for the last few centuries.

But can a vampire Enforcer smooth his rough edges enough to convince Nora that they’re Soul Mates?

Excerpt:

“I don’t think I can do this.” I clutched my cell phone in one sweaty palm.

“Nora. Take a deep breath.” My best friend, Anna, laughed in my ear. “I bought you this so you could have a good time. Who knows? Maybe you’ll meet Mr. Right?”

Yeah. Sure. “I don’t belong here, Anna. I’m not rich. This guy’s going to get all the wrong ideas about me.”

Anna went silent on the other end for a moment, and then her breath blew static into the phone. I flinched at the noise. “Stop being ridiculous. Get out of the car and go meet him. Have a fling. You’ve been single forever, and I’m trying to fix that.”

Almost against my will, I opened the car door. “Just because wedded bliss agrees with you doesn’t mean it needs to be thrust it on everyone else. I am perfectly content as I am.”

She seized on the word as soon as she heard it. “Exactly. Content. You should be happy. Content is for old women with forty cats.”

“All right.” I took a deep breath and released it slowly. “I agreed to this. And I can back out of the whole thing after dinner if I want to.” She sighed into the phone. “But it doesn’t matter, because I’m going to be totally wild for one night. I can do this.”

“That’s my girl. Knock him dead.” She giggled again. “I so wish I could be there. But call and let me know how it turns out!”

“Sure. Talk to you later.”

She hung up, and I tossed the phone into the small, beaded clutch I’d brought. I dug out the crumpled printout of Madame Eve’s email and reread the instructions again.

Go to the Castillo Hotel and Resort Washington DC. Inside is the Skyline Grill. Give the waiter your name, and he will seat you in the proper place. If you arrive before your companion, please relax. Have a drink, and enjoy yourself. The rest is up to you.

I hope you take a look. And I will look forward to awarding a winner on the 26th at noon!  🙂

I’m working on a trailer for the book itself, so hopefully that will be up soon!

 





Six Sentence Sunday #3

7 08 2011

Hello!  For anyone who hasn’t heard of it, Six Sentence Sunday is where authors post six sentences from their work for your enjoyment!  Please make sure you visit the Six Sentence Sunday site and check out the other awesome authors!

My entry is from my current finished work, called Soul Mate, which will be coming out soon from Decadent Publishing! Enjoy!

His hands stroked slow circles over my back. I relaxed against him, enjoying the feel of his body against mine. A million different fantasies played through my head, some mine, some picked up from my brush against his thoughts. Though I’d probably never get to enact any of them, as I’d probably die of heart failure when he took off his shirt.

He chuckled and released my mouth. “No you won’t.”
