That is Tragically Forgotten Books. I've wondered how many To Be Read piles out there have my books waiting for the owner to pick up and read. For myself, I have over thirty . . . I think. Truthfully, I haven’t counted them, and I would probably be horrified by the number. A few months [...]
Today, I'm wearing my special earrings. So many people comment on them, but I really bought them because I write romantic suspense. Of course, other people think I must write something else entirely. Well, there was a little bondage in CIRCLE OF DESIRE. But I am picking up Lexi Blake at the airport today for a special function [...]
What? Are you feeling uncomfortable? Worried about what an erotic romantic suspense author is about to say? If you said yes, then you need to click elsewhere. I'm rather blunt about it as I truthfully and freely admit, I love sex. To me, all aspects of sex is a way to celebrate life. It makes [...]
In my day job, we use Gmail for our email correspondence. So it stands to reason that I know a tiny more than casual users. One thing I've seen a lot of Gmail users ignore, and probably don't even know they can fix, is their signatures*. They turn up at the bottom of each email [...]
I thought I would let you see a couple more pictures from my wedding day. Plus one from when I was in high school. Just a photo booth one, but I like it because you can tell I was having so much fun. Considering I hate having my picture taken (unless you're five years old, [...]
Happy (day before) anniversary to me and my hubby! Since I don't plan to post on the weekend, I decided instead to celebrate here today. As you can tell, it has been a long time. I will say there has been more good years than bad ones, and I've decided to keep him. Be sure [...]
Are you interested in winning one? My logo and such are embroidered on the front of the sports bag. Cool, heh. I have three to giveaway Be sure to sign up for my newsletter. I will be pulling a winner from there on September 30.
I've been thinking about about placing some excerpts of my books on Goodreads, but a few things came to mind. A few years ago, Sherrilyn Kenyon told me not to use the first chapter as an excerpt because people will open the book and think they've read it. That is so true. If I want to [...]
Though I'm still wary about Amazon.com (they are taking over the world), they provide a neat service to authors (no matter who publishes your books). They have an area called Author Central where authors can sign in and look at info from BookScan. That service shows your sales of paperbacks throughout mainland U.S.A. I have [...]
One of the advantages of working at my day job is that I work with a lot of men. Those in my office and customers over the phone. I enjoy listening to the way they talk. I usually sit back, watch and listen to them. They're so easy to get along with. When I was [...]
Ha! That subject line is great for excusing all kinds of behavior, isn't it? Last year, I decided that this year I would only do two big events and two small. The big ones were RT Book Lovers Convention in KC and the Romance Writers of America Conference in Atlanta. The small were Heart of [...]
I love listening to books in my car. One of many benefits is that I slow down so I can listen to more of the story. Less chance of getting a speeding ticket that way. Less irritation with the traffic too. Oh, you're wondering what book I'm listening to? BEAUTIFUL STRANGER by Christina Lauren. I'm enjoying the [...]
I'm curious. If I were to give away a poster of my latest cover, would you be interested in winning it? I have four of them and ready need only one. Would it be a fun prize to win? This is the cover. In November, my writers' group holds a readers luncheon, and we have [...]
I'm over at the Romance Magicians' blog with my monthly post. Come by and visit, comment (just say hi) and see what I have to say about my writing style.
Hate it when I'm sick. I do stupid stuff like spend money on line because I can't get out. I need a sign that reads, "Don't be sick and use a credit card at the same time. Get well and hide the other."
I had planned, and even wrote a little bit for a new blog post today, but didn't finish it. My sinuses are dealing me fits. In fact, one eye is almost swollen shut. Ain't I pitiful? LOL! Whenever I get sick, I feel my age. I guess everyone is like that. Use to I could [...]
