A Question, and Weekend Roundup

So where does a witch go for help?

HERE!!! I’m here to ask you all a question.

What do you want to know about the Wing Slayer Hunters? I’m going to expand this site into a more traditional website in a next month or two, and do a Wing Slayer Hunter page.   So what do you want to know about on the site? More about Axel and his crew? About their witches? Five questions for each? Three traits? What they like in a woman? I’m trying to keep it fairly simple and fun to read.

I won’t be able to use everything,  and time is a huge factor, but any help you all can give me is greatly, hugely and very much appreciated!

Okay and on to our weekends, mine was all work, but I’m past page 300 in my revisions, so YAY! I have less than 200 pages to go, then I need to do a last read through to get it clean and send it to my editor July 5th  I have no idea if the book is any good, but it will be done.

Bailey is coming over today! How am I supposed to work with Bailey Dog here? So not fair! My son swears this is a picture of Bailey watching soccer with him over the weekend, but it looks to me like Bailey is bored and probably thinking, “Hey when can I go play with that super cool witch again?” And then my son said, “Fine, I’ll take to you see her, but she’s not cool, she’s my mom. ”

So how was your weekend? And don’t forget, give me your suggestions for a Wing Slayer Hunter web page!

ARC Contest

I have two ARCs (Advance Reading Copy, which is an uncorrected, bound proof of the book) to give away of THE BEAST WITHIN (out Sept 2010), the Anthology I’m in with Erin McCarthy and Bianca D’Arc.

My story in the anthology is about a once powerful wizard with a dangerous secret, and the woman who will either ruin him or save him.

If you’re interested in winning an ARC,  leave a comment answering this question;  Do you like reading about sizzling hot, powerful men with dangerous secrets?

I’ll announce the two winners on Thursday. Good luck!

Cover Question

Is sexier better?

I love my Wing Slayer Hunter covers:

But  a bookseller was just saying she thought a sexier cover would increase sales even more. Sexy, maybe like this:

So I’m throwing it out to you–what to you think?

Monday…Again

Mondays just keep coming back! Haven’t we fired these Mondays yet?

Bailey came over on Saturday and we played.  I thought that maybe Stuffed Puppy might have learned something about playing after watching Bailey.  So on Sunday, I gave Stuffed Puppy one of the bones that Bailey left at our house. And he took to it like  a champ!

I was so excited, I said, “Look Wizard, I think he’s chewing on the bone!”

Wizard said,  “It’s a big bone, it’ll keep him busy while we go to the movies.”

So Wizard and I went to see KILLERS.  (Funny movie!) Then we went home. I was so excited to see what Stuffed Puppy had done with the bone. Maybe he’s finally…doing something. Anything.  I ran in the house, and frowned.  Stuffed Puppy hadn’t moved. At all. See for yourself:

“Wizard, I’m telling you, there’s something wrong with that dog!”

Wizard smirked.  “I think he’s the perfect dog.”

Sigh.

So how was your weekend?

Sneak Peek…

This is a random, unedited, out-of-context, straight from the manuscript with the original mistakes, sneak peek from REDEEMING THE WIZARD in THE BEAST WITHIN ANTHOLOGY (out Sept 2010).

...He leaned closer, crowding her, and said, “You felt it, my frigid little mortal. You felt the sexual charge between us. You want to hate me, fine, but don’t lie to me. Or yourself.”

She sucked in a breath and refused to meet his eyes. “I don’t fall into instant lust. You did something, maybe bespelled with your wizard gaze. Probably same thing you do to all women when you want to get laid.”

She was really starting to piss him off. He never used magic to get sex, hell he hadn’t had to. Women vied for his attention, for the chance to have sex with a wizard. “Close your eyes.”

She pulled her eyebrows together. “Why?”

“You accused me of using magic to make you want me. I’m going to prove I didn’t.” He leaned his head to her ear, inhaling the scent of his shampoo on her. “Close your eyes, Mira. Then you won’t be able to see my eyes when I kiss you.”

He felt her slight shiver, then she jerked her head to the side, away from him. “I’m not—“

Pulling his head back, he watched the flush that warmed her cheeks and made her eyes sparkle. She licked her lips and he fought back a groan. Instead, he said, “Unless you’re willing to concede that you’re turned on by me.”

She closed her eyes, her shoulders tensed and her jaw rigid.

Gage cupped her chin and stroked his thumb over her lips. They were smooth, slightly damp and warm from her tongue. His balls tightened and his dick hardened. Her feminine scent of warm vanilla mixing with his soap and his shampoo from the shower was arousing as hell. Using his fingers, he stroked along the sensitive line of her jaw to her ear and down the curve of her neck. Then he leaned down and brushed his mouth over hers…

Reading!

I’ve been reading more lately, well until I got a new prescriptions for my contacts last Friday. Since then I’ve had a headache and felt a bit off. Think I’m going to have to call my eye doctor on that today.

Anyway, I’ve read THE SECRET PASSION OF SIMON BLACKWELL by Samantha James.  I liked it, although I would like to have seen the heroine tested just a bit more.

FANGED AND FABULOUS by Michelle Rowen. This was a fun book, easy to pick up and put down as I had time.

CHASING PERFECT by Susan Mallery. I read that straight through and enjoyed it!

LION’S HEAT by Lora Leigh.  I found this book intense. Just…intense. I liked it but, umm, intense.

Okay–you’re turn! What are you all reading?
