More Covers!

I had a great time with my son and his fiance on Saturday. Cake tasting went well and they found the perfect bakery, I think. Lunch was awesome. CPA Boy is one lucky guy :-)

Oh yeah, while we were at lunch, Wizard texted Fiance and asked her,  “Is Witch turning into Monster-In-Law yet?” Naturally she answered  “Yes.”

By the way Wizard, good luck finding your toy helicopter that you love so much. Just saying…

I know you’ve seen the first cover, but I’ll post all three covers so you can see them together. They were designed by super talented Patricia Schmitt aka Pickyme. She is not only amazing at creating covers, but professional in every way and so easy to work with. I’ve also included the book blurbs and probable release dates. But first, here is the tag line for The Plus One Chronicles:

A wicked proposition…

A sensual possession…

A dark obsession…

The Plus One Chronicles: Searing passion and fiery vengeance collide in three explosive books.

Feb 26 2013 Expected Release Date

Rich, sexy and volatile, Sloane Michaels has a dark agenda that keeps his heart on ice. His extreme wealth gives him the control he craves and his skills as an ex UFC fighter the tools he’ll need to extract his ultimate revenge. But when the woman he never believed he’d see again crosses his path, Sloane is caught between the vengeance he needs and a sexual conquest he craves.

Kat Thayne has been in survival mode for six years, hiding behind the sweet creations for her bakery. But when a random carjacking brings her face-to-face with her darkest fears and hottest fantasy, Kat is forced out of hiding and offered a dangerously passionate proposition. One she knows she isn’t strong enough to refuse.



May 28 2013 Expected Release Date

Savagely sexy billionaire Sloane Michaels ruthlessly controls his life and everything in it. Even his sex partners are carefully negotiated plus-one arrangements, including his latest, the fiery bakery owner, Kat Thayne. But Sloane’s control is challenged when his mentor becomes seriously ill, and his need for Kat, his need to possess her at all costs, rivals only his single-minded goal of vengeance for the murder of his sister.

After surviving an attack six years ago, Kat Thayne escaped her fears in the protective world of her beloved bakery. Then Sloane Michaels storms into her life, making her feel beautiful, strong and sexy. Yet as Kat pushes her boundaries and uncovers a dangerous secret in her past, Sloane’s controlling side emerges. Worried that Sloane will possess her mind, body and soul, Kat fights to keep her hard won independence. But just as Sloane demands her complete surrender, she discovers he has a dark side that could destroy them both.


September 24 2013 Expected Release Date

Sloane Michaels is obscenely rich, jaggedly handsome and obsessed with love and vengeance. But he can only have one, and it’s tearing him apart. The fiery baker who resurrected his heart or retribution for the twin sister who was his best friend his only family. But when Kat’s life is threatened, Sloane is forced to make a choice. Will he kill the one who murdered his sister or die to protect the woman he loves?

Kat Thayne can’t bear to watch the obsession for revenge destroy the man she adores. She knows she should run from him and never look back. But when she becomes a target for a stone cold killer, Kat has nowhere else to turn. She goes to Sloane for help, and in an instant she’s swept back into his world…and his bed. But as the fiery passion consumes them once again, and Sloane’s addiction to vengeance resurfaces, Kat is forced into the decision of a lifetime.


And there they are! I’m going to do my absolute best to say on my release schedule.

So how was your weekend?

Happy Friday!

Sorry I’m late! I’ve been having major Internet issues.  It looks like I’m back online  now, at least for awhile, but I have to run out to an early morning appointment so this is a short post.

I wasted so much of yesterday, THREE HOURS with Verizon, and after three hours of going through all the tests and cyber-gumnastics, and them telling me there is nothing wrong with the line/DSL/speed/connection etc,  someone finally got on the phone and told me there was a problem in my area.  **Deep Breathe** I’m letting it go. Really….

Moving on, I do have two new covers for The Plus One Chronicles that I want to show you, so I’ll do that on Monday. I’m really excited about them! Now if only I could get this second book going.

Tomorrow, I’m going cake tasting with my oldest son, CPA boy, and his awesome finace. I’m so looking forward to that. We’re going to two different bakeries and then lunch. I have to miss my RWA meeting, but it’s a sacrifice I’m willing to make for cake, umm, I mean my son and his fiance :-)

So what are your weekend plans?

5 Things about Wizard and WSW!

5 Random Things about Wizard:

1) He was flying his small remote control helicopter in the living room (high ceilings there) and I was reading. In my peripheral vision, I see him diving for the ground. The helicopter he was flying suddenly  dive-bombed him. I laughed so hard…I think the battery ran out and he lost control of it, but I’m not really sure. I was laughing too hard to hear his excuse explanation.

2) He makes up songs and sings them to me.  He’s done this since we were first married. Sometimes I laugh and sometimes it drives me crazy.  One song is Jenny Champagne With Her Beer Income Man.

3) When the kids were little and I would try to kiss or hug Wizard, he would yell out, “Zebras! Help!” And all three boys would run to rescue him from me. We usually all ended up rolling around the ground and laughing.

4) Wizard doesn’t really like the limelight.  But he does like to tease.

5)  Last night, he mercilessly temped me until I shared his cupcake with him. Insisting I eat it off his fork.  He’s wicked like that.

And there you have 5 Things about Wizard :-)

Now for Wing Slayer Worthy:

Is he Wing Slayer Worthy?

Weekend Roundup!

Pretty good weekend. Still struggling to write the first chapter of POSSESSION (book 2 in The Plus One Chronicles) but that’s not unusual for me.  I’ll get it, but it’s frustrating right now.

I broke down and made lemon cupcakes. But in my defense they are Research! Seriously! I even took a picture this time :-)  And I’m done baking for awhile. Really. I am!

Also, I found out that my book from Entangled, A HERO’S TOUCH (first book in  Once A Marine series) will come out in March.  The next round of edits are coming soon.

I’m going to be so busy, I won’t have time to bake much anyway. I want to write at least three more books, maybe four this year.


In hot off the presses news, Laura Wright and Alexander Ivy have teamed up to self  publish a new series titled BAYOU HEAT. They just released the first book! Raphael Parish is only 99Cents at Amazon and Barnes and Noble! I read it and loved it.


Okay so how was your weekend?

Happy Friday!

I was supposed to be starting POSSESSION  the next book in The Plus One Chronicles yesterday. I wrote the words Chapter One. Does that count as writing?

Promo stuff kept getting in my way. Oh and I sent off THE PROPOSITION to the proofreader. But today I’m going to the gym, then I’m determined to write something. At least more than Chapter One!

Now I culled some pics Wizard took of me when he was “helping” me bake. And by helping, I mean he tasted the cookies and candy. Oh and he got my Mixmaster down from a high shelf.  In this first one, I was covered in flour and chocolate, although it’s kind of hard to see in the pic:

And yeah, that’s my kitchen. And that’s me. Pretty much what I look like daily, except cleaner.

Then Wizard took this photo at a party and SWEARS it’s a good pic. I think I look a little too animated–actually I told Wizard I look demented.  I was laughing at something my niece said.

And that’s enough pics of me for a very long time.  Although Wizard will be taking some professional shots of me at some point. I’m having my website redone and need new author pics. Except I’m procrastinating doing and putting Wizard off.

This weekend, I’m not sure what I’m doing, probably cleaning and writing and maybe I’ll do something fun. What about you?

Wing Slayer Worthy!

How’s 2013 going for you all so far? It’s good for me! Getting back onto my routine is always a good thing and I was in a fantastic mood on New Years Day.  Wizard goes back to work today-bummer for him. He really enjoy and needed the time off.

I. Must. Stop. Baking. But you know what I did that was incredibly stupid? I made all those cookies and forgot to take pictures of each cookie to use in a blog tour my assistant is setting up. I would totally suck as a food blogger! I can bake, I just can’t seem to remember to take pics. Although Wizard did get a picture of me wearing a black shirt and a lot of flour and chocolate. I’ll probably post that at some point. It’s not flattering but pics of me never are anyway.

But we’re not here today to talk about pics of me, we’re here to look at a Wing Slayer Hunter candidate.  This one could be Sloane Michaels from THE PROPOSITION or Linc, a Wing Slayer Hunter.

So what do you think, is he Wing Slayer Worthy?
