RT BookReviews closed it operations on May 16, 2018. It was a sad moment for many including myself. I read the magazine from the time it was actually a newspaper (1980s). At least, my dream of having a review of my book(s) done by the magazine came true. Plus my name was mentioned a few [...]

“When had his life turned into a porn version of a James Bond movie?” --- Ryker in Circle of Danger
Entertainment Weekly magazine had an interesting article this week. They announced the on-line version will have a "roundup" (reviews) of the latest romance novels. I was so proud that in the short article they hadn't said the two words I hate (initials are B. R.). Then I pulled up the column on-line. There were those [...]
Be sure to check back on May 1 for a month long contest with a big giveaway of a mini iPad. Plus I plan to have several more giveaways throughout the month from my author friends. This is my fourth anniversary of receiving an offer for publication from HarperCollins. On May 4, 2011, I received [...]
Well, I say I'm just chilling, but really I'm writing and writing. With a lot of staring off into space wishing my brain would work faster. You know it's kind of funny, when I wrote CIRCLE OF DANGER for Avon, I expected to have anxiety problems like most debut authors have with their second book. [...]
I usually avoid talking about the day job except for the occasional remarks about working overtime and it kicking my butt. But today I’m in the mood to talk in general about it. A few years ago, I started the current job after an old one sold out and moved away. Freaking stressful. See, I’ve [...]
Beware - some spoilers mixed in. Who doesn't love a hero with a problem? It could be the trouble-making heroine he's fallen in love with or it could be the garbage he brought to the story from years before. Sherrilyn Kenyon is great at making the hero suffer as a kid and young adult. I'm [...]
The other day, I was thinking how people may have questions about my books? Maybe you're curious about how I choose the names and places? Why I matched up the characters the way I did? What do I plan for future books? Well, if you have any questions, ask away.

Today is my Second Anniversary of my debut book, CIRCLE OF DESIRE! Last year, I totally forgot to celebrate, so I thought I would make up for it today. I've decided to give away more than one prize. 1) In CIRCLE OF DESIRE, who was Theo's current mistress? The winner receives a $25 gift certificate [...]
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 [...]

I can't believe I keep forgetting to mention on my blog that CIRCLE OF DANGER won the 2013 Booksellers' Best Award for Erotic Romance! While I was in Atlanta a couple weeks ago, I was invited to attend a private reception with the Greater Detroit Romance Writers. You probably remember CIRCLE OF DANGER and CIRCLE [...]
