Thanks, Coffeetime!

This morning, I shambled out of the bedroom to find a wonderful thing in my inbox. It seems that Danielle at Coffeetime Romance reviewed Taint of Shadow, and thought it was fantastic! She wrote up a terrific review, which you can read right here, but more, she awarded it with their CTRR Award!

This is their reviewer’s recommendation award. She liked it so well that she wants to recommend it, and I’m just tickled purple (I don’t do pink). This is a terrific honor, and I don’t think there’s anything nicer than to hear that someone loves your book enough to enthuse about it to others.

Thanks, Danielle!

Static

Published by under Random Musings

The radio silence here has been deafening, I know. I’ve fallen behind on my blogging, and in fact, on some other things that I ought to be doing. And I haven’t written a word for a month, which has finally begun to make me come apart that the seams.

Fact is, I’ve been plotting. Plotting, writing backstory, and outlining. I’ve been hard at work doing it, too. When I get into a world, I immerse in it, and I have a hard time coming up for air until I’m done. In some cases, done means finished with the book, too.

I start writing it on Monday. And I expect to be lost in it for a little while. Today, I’m trying to catch up on all the little things I need to do before I wander into Idealand. But it’s hard to get that world out of my mind. Even know, it’s pulling me under.

This is one of the best parts of being a writer. Also, one of the most obnoxious. You drive your friends and family absolutely buggy. You get scatterbrained, because you’re focused on what’s in your head, not what’s outside it. But you’re there. You’re in the zone. The words will flow.

So if I’m a little quiet, I apologize. I’m just doing what I do.

Check Out Tequila Sunrise!

Published by under On Other Authors

Last Call #3

Werewolf Evelyn Smith loves her boyfriend, Kieran. Some people find it odd that an alpha female would choose a weaker mate, but Evelyn is willing to ignore her occasional cravings for submission when the reward is a fulfilling life with a man who loves her.

Kieran Rhys doesn’t mind the mocking jibes of his pack, but knowing the woman he loves has needs he can’t meet drives him crazy. After months of coaxing, he’s finally convinced Evelyn to accompany him to Last Call. If he can’t give his lover what she needs, he’ll find someone to help him.

Tequila Sunrise: Looking for domination.

Unrequited love has been hard on Zack Elliott. Even if the object of his desire returned his feelings, she’s a fragile human whose body couldn’t withstand the force of his needs. Evelyn and Kieran seem like the perfect solution, especially when he realizes the one thing they need is the one thing he’s been holding back for far too long — absolute domination.

Fifth Sentence on Page 56

Published by under Random Musings

Layla Aaron posted this fun little game, and I thought I might contribute…

* Grab the nearest book.
* Open the book to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
* Don’t dig for your favorite book, the cool book, or the intellectual one: pick the CLOSEST.

Nearest book – Perdido Street Station by China Mieville (which was sitting on my desk after I got done with it)

Fifth sentence – Crematoria vented into the airborne ashes of wills burnt by jealous executors, which mixed with coaldust burnt to keep dying lovers warm.

Now do the same, and post it on your blog!

Release Day – New Life!

Published by under Book Information

Sophia Chase made a mistake many years ago that she’s tried desperately to forget. When she reads about the murders in the town nearby, she can’t deny it any longer: the vampire she created has become a threat.

Kyle Madsen doesn’t believe in vampires. He’s devoted his career to disproving the old myths. When a serial killer strikes close to home, he believes the murders are the work of a psychotic human criminal driven by a demented mind.

But vampires believe in him. One wants him dead. The other is his only hope for a new life.
