Here’s the blurb for Savaged Surrender!

Being bad has never been so sexy…

Bad boy Ethan Hunt is sexy, hard and tainted by a past he can’t escape. To make matters worse, good girl Ana Kendall is a wicked temptation impossible to resist. She’s too innocent for him, so he leaves, joining the security team for the world tour of the internationally famous rock band, Savaged Illusions.

Being good has never satisfied…

Since moving in with her dad at fourteen, Ana’s been the perfect daughter, friend, student and employee. But perfection sucks. When her girlfriends cook up a ridiculous scheme to reunite her with the one man she can’t forget, Ana hijacks their plot. It’s time to shed her good girl persona and go after what she wants—Ethan.

Being bad together is deadly…

When Ana bursts back into his life at a concert, Ethan has to make a choice. Consumed by fiery passion, Ana and Ethan surrender to their sensual desires…and unknowingly ignite the rage of an insidious stalker. This time Ethan can’t walk away—Ana’s life, and his heart, are on the line.

If you loved Kat and Sloane from The Plus One Chronicles, I think you’ll really enjoy this sexy long novella. Savaged Surrender stars Ethan and Ana, two very popular secondary characters from The Plus One Chronicles. I’ve wanted to tell their story for a while and I’m thrilled to bring it to you now! However, if you haven’t read the Plus One Chronicles, this also works as a stand alone novella :-) I hope you’ll give it a try!

My weekend was fantastic! I checked with my editor, and she doesn’t need the book I’m finishing edits on, Savaged Dreams, until later this week. That really gave me some breathing room. I was able to work on some release promo, go to lunch with a friend and take a few more days doing a final pass on Savaged Dreams before sending it off. I’m so grateful for that!

How was your weekend?

Happy Friday!

Friday? This week just zoomed by. I feel a bit like this:

I’m not sure if I’m the tornado or the witch :-) Last night I got all the files uploaded for SAVAGED SURRENDER, so at least Amazon Kindle and iTunes should be live by Monday or sooner. We tested the files six ways to Sunday, and I’m hoping no glitches got though but it’s always a bit of a nail biter, especially with Amazon. Once I set this blog up, I’m going to attempt to upload to Netgalley for reviewers too. Netgalley requires a rather archaic FTP process to upload files and I usually inadvertently miss one step along the way, and spend forever trying to figure it out what I did wrong.

In other news, I’ve mentioned Wizard’s back issues, and that he’s been in pretty miserable pain (sh, don’t tell him I told you guys, he’ll be mad :-) ). Wednesday was a LONG excursion to see the surgeon, but we got some good news. He’s a definite candidate for surgery and it should resolve the problem. Holy Cow, after seeing the MRI, I don’t know how Wizard’s been tolerating the pain at all, let alone doing as much as he is. It’ll take a while to get through approval process and scheduling, but at least there’s light at the end of the tunnel.

Otherwise, it’s going to be a whirlwind weekend. I have 20 more pages to revise, then must recheck a couple of scenes and do a final hard edit before sending it back to my editor. My weekend will be all work and no play, but once I get the book off I can catch my breath a little bit.

What are your weekend plans?

Weekend Roundup

One more week! If all goes as planned, my novella SAVAGED SURRENDER will be up the week of October 24th! I’m trying to have it by Monday, but it’s going to depend on when I get the formatting back and if there are any delays with the vendors.

I’m excited now!  I flirted with changing the title to One Good Thing, as the fits the books really well. But the book is also loosely connected to my new Savaged Series (book one coming soon, I hope!) so I’m going to stick with the original title. At least that’s my plan as I’m typing this blog :-)

Now onto the weekend. Saturday was a ton of work, and then it was playtime. First we went to oldest son’s to celebrate Special K’s birthday, played with their three dogs, Cookie, Corky and Max, then out to dinner with about eight of us. After that, we headed to middle son’s to meet his, and his girlfriend’s baby boy puppy, Jett. This was on my FB but I’ll put it here too. He’s a sweetheart! (That’s what I look like after getting up at 5:30 to work, and it’s about 9:00 pm when this pic was taken.)

This dog is such a cuddle bug!

Sunday, my girlfriend had to cancel lunch, and while I was disappointed, it was probably best for me. We’ll try to catch up next weekend.

How was your weekend?

Cover Reveal

Happy Wednesday everyone! I’m off to conference today, although…last night while cooking dinner, I knocked a bread knife off the counter–right onto my toe. Ouch! I’m typing this from my laptop while icing the toe and debating going to emergency. It’s not cut, the handle end hit the fourth toe, and it’s swollen and getting a bit ugly. Thing is, there’s not much they can do, and I know how to take care of it, so I may just tape it up and go on. Although I’ll be wearing flats now :-)

In my defense, Wizard was standing right there when it happened and he couldn’t figure out how that knife slid off the counter. He got a close up view of the weird stuff that just happens around me, LOL! But I actually know how this happened, when I picked up the cutting board, I caught the edge of the knife and knocked it off. I jumped back, probably saving most of the foot from a bad cut, but not quite far enough to save the toe from getting hit be the end of the handle.

But enough of that! Now that the newsletter finally went out after a frustrating formatting glitch (huge thanks to my assistant Anna for solving that!!), I can share the cover for those who don’t get the newsletter! This is for SAVAGED SURRENDER, Ethan and Ana’s novella that I will release on October 10th, and that will also be included in the 1,001 Dark Nights bundle in December.

I hope you guys have a great rest of the week! I’ll probably skip Friday’s post and hope to be back for Monday.
