Wow…March is almost here


And it looks like February is going out like a lion….I hope March comes in quietly. Where did February go? Wasn’t it only yesterday I was celebrating the release of my first book of 2010? Now in nine days, my second book will be out. Holy Cow!

I think it was Susan who asked about a release date for Fighting Dragons. Well, in March, you get two releases from me. Freaks in Love will be out March 7th and Fighting Dragons will be out March 30th (of course, that’s subject to change, but I’m pretty sure you can count on it…lol) So bookend releases. Yay!

Then I’ll have one book out in April, May, and June. At least that’s what is scheduled for right now. You never know because I have two books that are contracted, but haven’t gone through the editing process yet and haven’t been assigned a release date. They might be added in to one of the three months or to a month that doesn’t have a book coming out yet.

I have one book in for consideration at one of my publishers and I do think I’ll see about getting Bastet published, but I’m not sure who I’ll send it to yet. There’s probably about another 1k or so added into it and maybe in the future, we’ll revisit the guys to see how they’re doing. 🙂

I’m working on a couple of books now. Just have to see whose voice speaks the loudest to see who wins my attention…lol.

I hope you all have a great Friday, plus a safe and fun weekend.

Go vote!


For a few moments I totally forgot what I wanted you to go vote for…lol. It’s a Monday for sure.

It’s time for the Second Annual Sammie Awards. Samhain has opened their polls for the readers to pick their favorite books of 2009. Stop on their front page here and click on their link. You get to choose best hero, herione, book and cover. Among other things. I hope you go and vote, even if you don’t vote for my stories…lol.

Edits are done for Fighting Dragons and Soothe the Burn. So I’ll have one more edit for StB, which will be for the print version. After that, I can go back to working on new stuff. Yay!

I hope you all have a great Monday.

Halfway through January…

This is one of those pictures that a story could be written about. 🙂

Wow…we’re already halfway through January. Where has the month gone? I’m busy writing and not really paying much attention to anything around me…lol. I have edits for Fighting Dragons to get done, but that shouldn’t take me too long. I picked a story and I’ve been working on it alone, instead of working on several different stories at once. So I’m hoping it’ll be done soon. Yay!

Hope you all have a great Monday.

Happy Hunk Day


Well, it’s the last day of the work week for me. Woot! Can’t wait until it’s over then I have a four day weekend. I’m not going to want to come back to work next week. 🙂

Some good news. Dracul’s Blood, the book I wrote with Carol Lynne, was contracted by Total e-Bound and is scheduled for a June release. (Of course, like every release date, it’s subject to change..lol) Also, Understanding the Past has been contracted by Aspen Mountain Press. I don’t have a date on that one yet. One more….Soothe the Burn (a sci-fi/futuristic story) has been contracted by Amber Allure for a February release. That’s four books coming out so far next year. Since Fighting Dragons will be out next year as well.

I haven’t heard anything about His Heart’s Home from Liquid Silver, but that’s all right. I didn’t expect to hear back from them yet.

I’m working on a couple stories right now…like always. I can’t write just one. 🙂 Also, I plan on revamping my website over the weekend. I’m hoping to get most of it set up, but it might be down for a day or two while I fine tune everything.

I hope you all have a great Wednesday…and a safe trip if you’re traveling today.

Rainy Days and Fridays…..


don’t always get me down…lol. I’m looking forward to this Friday, simply because I’m leaving work early. Woo-hoo! Only working until 1:30, then I have errands to run. After which, I’ll be coming home, and if it’s still raining, I’ll probably take a nap. Nothing like having your day planned out, huh?

Well, Fighting Dragons was finished and sent in. I have the second round of edits on With This Ring to do and return.After that, it’s working on other stories. 🙂 I’m hoping to have a productive weekend.

Have a great Friday, everyone, and a safe and fun Halloween.

Hump Day



Well, the middle of the week has arrived and I have to say, I’m glad for that. Means only two more days until the weekend and I am looking forward to two days off. Though it never feels like enough time away from the EDJ. 🙂

I never thought 2k would go so slow. I’m so close to being done with Fighting Dragons, yet I can’t seem to find the time to sit down and finish the silly thing. I’m going to do that tonight. No matter what, I’m going to get what needs to be written done. Yay! Then I can work on the story Carol Lynne and I are writing together. Have to get my half of the chapter finished soon. lol.

That’s it. Nothing new to report, so I’ll just say I hope you all have a great Hump day. 🙂

The rat race begins again….


So it begans again…lol. Nice and wet as well. Yay! Mondays are always so much fun to begin with and chilly and rainy.

The website didn’t happen, so that goes on my list to get done at some other point. But I’m only a scene or two away from finishing Fighting Dragons.

I watched a documentary on Bon Jovi yesterday and, of course, ended up with a story idea from something Jon Bon Jovi said…lol. I wrote the idea down because I didn’t want to forget it. We’ll see how long it takes before I can work on it.

Well, I hope you all have a great Monday…hope it’s drier than mine is.

T.G.I.F…



This week has seemed a lot longer than it probably was. 🙂 But I’m ready for the countdown…lol. Now, if I can just get through the rest of the day.

Fighting Dragons is going well. I’m about 4-5k away from being done. I should be getting most of that done over the weekend, even though I plan on finally overhauling my website. If that happens, and it works (since I’m going to learn how to do it all myself instead of relying on others to do it for me) my blog will probably be moving, but don’t change your bookmarks yet. I’ll definitely post if that happens or not. 🙂

Been sneaking in a little writing on a couple of other stories as well as FD, just to give myself a little break from that story.

Oh, I normally don’t get political or anything like that on my blog, but I have to announce the news. Finally, the Matthew Shepherd and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act passed and will be on its way to President Obama to be signed. It expands the hate crimes bill to include any crimes against people because of their sexual orientation. Matthew Shepherd was a gay college student killed eleven years ago in Wyoming for being gay. James Byrd Jr. was an African-American man who was killed by white supremacists in Texas in 1998 as well. Both murders were gut-wrenchingly horrific. Both the Shepherd and Byrd families deserve our thanks for presevering though all the long years of struggling to get this bill passed. And thank you to all those Congressmen and women who voted for this bill, though I might want to say, it should have been passed much sooner, but at least you did it right this time.

I hope you all have a great Friday and a wonderful weekend.

Just another Hump day…



This series of photographs is great. I really like this model. 🙂

Hmm…what to talk about? It looks like Bastet is going to be a hit. That’s always good. I’d hate to start a blog story and have everyone hate it…lol. That would really suck. Since I just started their story, I’m learning about the characters like you are, as each scene and chapter plays out.

Fighting Dragons is coming along and I’m starting to get ready to finish up His Heart’s Home, which will move up to the head of the line as soon as I hit ‘send’ on FD. While I’m finishing HHH, I’ll be working on another vampire story. Once that’s done, I’ll be working on JT’s story (Tyler’s brother from Bound by Love) along with Rover’s story, I think. Even though it seems and sounds like I’m organized, I try not to pin myself down too much. Never know what story will end up taking over for a while. But those are my general plans for now.

I have a long list of at least thirty stories that I want/need to finish, and I have to admit that a majority of them have something, even if it’s only 200 words, written on them. It’s just a matter of taking my time and going down the list. Of course, if I think about it too much, I’ll wind up in a corner, crying because I’m overwhelmed by the sheer enormity of the job…lol.

Well, I hope you have a great Wednesday. 🙂

Rain, Rain, Go Away…


Okay, so I’m going to build an ark in my driveway to deal with the rain. Ugh!

Nick of Time is #3 at All Romance Ebooks. Woo-hoo! We’re slowly moving up the list. 🙂 And even though they aren’t in the top ten yet, both Death or Life and Bitter Creek’s Redemption are best sellers there as well. Yay!

I’m working diligently on Fighting Dragons. I’m a little behind where I wanted to be by today, but that’s all right. I have the weekend to make up the word count and I still have a few days leeway to get it done.

Going to see Zombieland tonight. I think…at least that was the plan..lol.

Hope you all have a great day and a marvelous weekend.
