Archive for Be the Air for You

New Cover….


Here’s the cover for Shades of Dreams which will be out Dec. 12th. I got the release date wrong…lol. And like I said, Shades and Be The Air For You will be out in print (together) in mid-January, I believe. ๐Ÿ™‚ Woo-hoo!

Someone asked me the other day about The Vanguard and one line there about the Prince’s blood having something strange in it, and then it was never addressed in the rest of the book. That’s my fault. It’s one of the plot ideas that either got away from me or I changed my mind about having in there and forgot to take it out. Sorry about that.

There was another question I wanted to answer, but for the life of me, I can’t remember what it was. Sorry, and as soon as I do, I’ll make sure to give my answer. I’ve been fighting a cold/sinus infection for the past week or so. I keep hoping it’ll go away soon, but it seems to want to stick around. At times, my brain is barely functioning…lol. And this morning is one of them.

I plan on doing a lot of writing this weekend, in between other obligations. So maybe I can get Voice for the Silent halfway or even all the way done by Sunday night. Wish me luck.

Have a great Friday and a marvelous weekend, everyone.

Wicked Wednesday…


okay…so this picture isn’t particularly wicked, but there’s just something about it I like. ๐Ÿ™‚ Maybe it’s how young and innocent he looks, even though you know underneath he’s not…lol. Or at least you’d like to imagine he’s not.

I finished Shades of Dreams and submitted it to Amber Allure. It’ll be out on Dec. 5th. Early Christmas present for everyone. ๐Ÿ™‚ Also, the print version which will feature Be the Air for You as well, will be out in the middle of January and will be titled Air and Dreams (that might change, though my publisher didn’t say anything negative when I told him what I wanted to call the print antho.)

Now I’m focusing on Falling in Love…Again and Destroying Belief. Both are moving along quite well. Yay!

That’s all I have to say for today…lol. Have a great Wednesday, everyone.

I’m so close….


to finishing Shades of Dreams, I can taste it. I’m only about another 2-3k away. Have to finish up the chapter I’m on right now, then write the epilogue. Woo-hoo! That means it should be done today or tomorrow at the latest. As soon as I get a date for a release, I’ll let you know.

Someone asked the other day where I was going to sub it, and the answer is Amber Allure. I already talked to Trace, the publisher, and we’re planning to put both Be The Air For You and Shades together in one print anthology. That way you can get both my rocker stories in one. ๐Ÿ™‚

Once Shades is done, I’ll be focusing on the two stories I want done by Dec. 1. But I also have a story I’ve been working on in my journal that I carry with me everywhere. I write in it when I get an idea or scene and don’t want to lose it. Or if I’m waiting in line somewhere…lol. I’ve lost track of how many journals I actually have. It has to be over 8o now.

Anyway, back from my tangent, I posted a little scene a long time ago on my blog called Kissed by Gods. I’ve refined the title to Kissed by God, and I’m expanding it. I’m not sure how many words I have so far, since it’s all long hand and not typed in. I thought maybe this weekend I’d sit down and type in what I have written to see how much further I have to go on the story. ๐Ÿ™‚ I really like the story line and the two characters. One of which is a recovering heroin addict, hence the title. “Kissed by God” is a term used by addicts to describe the high they get from the drug.

Well, I think I’ve babbled enough today. I hope you all have a great Friday and a wonderful safe weekend.

Another Friday….


8 more hours or so before the weekend officially starts. Ugh! I don’t want to be here. I want to be home enjoying the last days of summer…lol. Okay, enjoying the last days of summer has nothing really to do with the fact that I don’t want to be at work today. ๐Ÿ˜€

Got a bunch written on Shades yesterday, so I’m happy about that. It’ll be at least 40k, if not more. That means it’ll go into print. Woo-hoo! Maybe I should see about adding Be the Air for You to it…make it an anthology with rockers. That way you can have both stories in one. Hmm…might have to think on that.

Well, I don’t have anything else to talk about. I hope you all have a great time today and this weekend.

#1 Again…


I’ll admit that what I like most about this picture is the guy’s tattoo…lol. ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s beautiful.

I just want to thank everyone for making Be the Air for You the #1 Best Seller for May at Amber Allure. This is my fourth book in a row that’s hit #1. Also, it’s listed at #7 on All Romance Ebooks Best Seller list today.

You don’t know how much I appreciate the fact that you’re willing to spend your hard earned dollars on my stories. ๐Ÿ™‚ It humbles me and makes me determined to keep going. I don’t want to disappoint any of you. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I hope you all have a great and dry Wednesday since it’s raining here.

Be the Air for You available….


In case you didn’t know, my newest Amber Allure release came out yesterday. Be the Air for You is now available and with a 35% discount as well. ๐Ÿ˜€ Can’t beat that, huh?

Here’s the blurb:

Rock star Rod Hannah is on top of his game, performing all over the world to sold-out arenas. Yet loneliness is a battle he fights along with his long-time addiction to drugs and alcohol. He beat those latter demons three years ago with the aid of his best friend, Hawk McLeod, a doctor who runs a clinic on the Navajo reservation in New Mexico. But when it comes to the loneliness, itโ€™s still a daily struggle for Rod. Heโ€™s been in love with Hawk for years, but the timing had never been right for turning their friendship into something deeper and more serious.

Hawk is the person Rod calls in the middle of the night, no matter where he is or what heโ€™s done, and Hawkโ€™s always there for him. Now, when Hawk faces a life-changing crisis and needs him the most, Rod will drop everything to support the man he loves, hoping to show him how perfect they are for each other…



I hope all the mothers had a wonderful day yesterday. Whether you think so or not, you are one of the most important people in the world. Mothers help shape the next generation. ๐Ÿ™‚

Have a marvelous Monday, everyone…even if it is a Monday. lol

Be the Air for You cover


This is the cover for my May 9th Amber Allure release, Be the Air for You. I like it. Very hot! ๐Ÿ™‚

I thought I’d give you the blurb and a little unedited excerpt from the story.

Blurb:

Rod Hannah is on top of his game, performing all over the world to sold-out arenas. Yet loneliness is a battle he fights along with his long-time addiction to drugs and alcohol. He beat those demons three years ago because of his best friend, Hawk McLeod.

Hawk is the person Rod calls in the middle of the night, no matter where heโ€™s been, and Hawkโ€™s always there for him. Yet when Hawk needs help fighting a battle he canโ€™t win, Rod will be there.

Heโ€™s been in love with Hawk for years, but the timing had never been right for turning their friendship into something deeper and more serious. Now when Hawk needs him the most, Rod will be there for the man he loves, showing him how perfect they are for each other.

Excerpt:

I set my phone down and lean back on the couch, staring at the picture of Hawk. He sent it to me to show me what good my money was doing, but those pictures were my lifeline in many ways. I saw possibilities and reasons, other than being self-centered and egotistical, why I did what I did. Playing music was my only talent, so I did it to the best of my ability and hoped others would get something from it.

Picking up my computer, I set it on my lap and truly look at Hawk. Lines craved at the corner of his mouth werenโ€™t laugh lines. Dark circles under his eyes spoke to me of more sleepless nights than I caused him. The sun glinted off Hawkโ€™s black-blue hair and showed a few strands of silver. My friend looked tired and I had the sudden urge to cancel all my remaining concerts to fly to Arizona and kidnap Hawk. He never knew when to take the time to rest. The clinic, his people, and me were the most important things to him. Heโ€™d work himself to death for any of the three and I knew it.

I opened the email Hawk sent me with the picture.

โ€œMaria received her new glasses today. Hopefully her headaches will go away and her grades will improve. I wanted to give you a name and face to think about when you wonder if there is anything good in the world. Your friend always, Hawk.โ€

I didnโ€™t need another face or name to remind me that good existed. All I had to do was imagine Hawk for he was the epitome of goodness.

Hitting reply, I typed, โ€œThank you yet again for reaffirming my belief in you. Get some sleep, my friend. Please, I donโ€™t want to hear about you getting sick.โ€

I hit send and shut my computer down. A knock sounded on my door and I grimaced. Time to be a star, and let Hawk do the important life-altering things.


I hope you all have a great Friday and a marvelous weekend. ๐Ÿ™‚

Digging out….


Okay…so we didn’t get as much snow as the people on the East Coast, but there was enough snow here to delay me getting into work. ๐Ÿ™‚ Which I’m not complaining about, really.

I finished a new story yesterday. Be the Air for You is about a rock star and his best friend who is dealing with some life altering problems. It’ll be released at Amber Allure on May 9th. ๐Ÿ™‚ Woo-hoo!

Oh and I got the cover for Wishing for a Home. It’s awesome. Check it out at SiN. I’ll post it on Friday along with another excerpt to whet everyone’s appetite for Derek and Max’s story.

I’m back to working on Out of Light into Darkness…a vampire story with a twist. I’m hoping I’ll get it done by the end of the month.

Hmmm…that’s all I can think of to update you about. I hope you all have a safe and warm Wednesday.
