Well, and so it begins again.

The Evernight Birthday Blog Tour is done – many thanks to all who commented and tweeted.  I’ve submitted your email addys to Evernight so you can be entered in the drawings.  On Monday I’ll announce the names of the winners of Come Back To Me – one hard copy (U.S. residents only) and one copy from Evernight or, if you have a Kindle, from Amazon.

This has been a busy baseball week.  Writers do lots more than write.  I’m baseball obsessed, sometimes I like football.  Weird as it sounds I’m a Steelers fan.  There’s just something about that team…

In the meantime, both Beauty and the Feast and My Everything are free for your Kindle through Saturday.  Run, don’t walk…

Nice to be back.  I’ll probably grow more wordy as the days go by.

Coming soon-


Ack! Ack! Double Ack!

I’ll be over there tomorrow and lord only knows where else.  I swear I’ll only drive if I’m sober.

News and updates.  Yeah, life is still nuts.  Why do you think I’m drinking?

I’d like to thank my guests this week, Katalina Leon and Nina Pierce, for taking over my site, chatting and bringing their marvelous stories to your attention.

I’ll be holding a wonderful contest – I’ll announce the details the very minute my house guests leave.

Captured, yeah, my fave, apparently finalled in the Science Fiction Romance category in the Golden Quill contest for published authors.  I heard today while I was circling the San Francisco airport waiting for my guests to reach the curb.  Pretty dang cool!

Pushing Her Boundaries (canoe trip), got a couple great reviews recently…um, Happily Ever After Reviews and The Romance Reviews (TRR)

So I have this great recipe for whiskey cake.  Not a whiskey cake, whiskey cake.  If you want the recipe, leave me a comment and your email addy and I’ll email it to you.  It’s a very, very old family recipe.  It’s delish!

Great Balls of Fire!

Good God in heaven I’m tired!  I’ve spent the day finishing up Book Four of Daughters of Persephone - Tempus Fugit, Time Flees.  Bloody exhausting and exhilarating at the same time!  Of course, I only have the cover for Books One and Two, but it, the cover, that is, bears repeating.  Or perhaps bares repeating.  I do love that cover, so Dune-ish in a hot naked guy butt sort of way.

So…news…Chris at Stumbling Over Chaos is stumbling over Beauty and the Feast, my upcoming contemporary romance from Resplendence.


Stop over there and check things out – I’ll be giving away a free copy of this delicious, smoking hot romance.

I’m still running my recipe contest here – I’ve tried Lil’s bacon-inspired croissant sandwiches, Jen’s black pepper parmesan biscotti and Dana’s Lemon Cheesecake and so far, we’re on a big hitting streak!  Leave your recipe and you might win a copy of Beauty and the Feast.  My contest runs until April 1.

In other news, Tessie Bradford’s fabulous book, Possessing Eleanor, comes out today with Resplendence as does The Devil to Pay, by Pamela Labud – buy link:


Okelie dokelie – ’nuff for tonight.

Oh gosh!  Over at Author Island in the Tiki Hut with my excerpt from Logical Lust’s The Cougar Book today.  I would love to have you drop in!  http://authorislandtikihut.blogspot.com/
