Happy Friday!

Another week gone! How does that happen? Insane!

This weekend, I’m escaping to a hotel for a weekend with my laptop.  Saturday I’m going to the Orange County Chapter of RWA Birthday Bash where Victoria Dahl is a speaker and I’m looking forward to that. I’m going to hang out with friends and then work, work, work.  I absolutely have to get a crap-ton of pages written.  I can do it, even on my laptop.  I don’t know how good my internet access will be.

Much to my amusement, Wizard has 110% supported this idea.  It’s like he’s trying to get rid of me or something, LOL!

Oh and I went back to the gym twice this week, yay! I’m going very slow and careful with my Achilles, but it is seriously doing great now.

OBSESSION is continuing to stay up on the charts and rankings.  I know I keep saying it, but thank you all so much! I love Kat and Sloane (and Drake). They came to me when I was in a difficult place, showing me how love, a sense of humor and patience can heal.  Now I get to share them with the world, and it’s an amazing experience.

Enough of that! Tell me what you’re doing this weekend! I always want to know :-)

Happy Friday!

I got most of the formatted files back for  OBSESSION last night and have started the process of setting those up to publish.   I ran into a problem with Kobo and will try to solve that today.  There’s always something. Could just be a glitch too.

I”m not even going to talk about how writing is going. Let’s just say I really need a day off! Which is good timing  because Biker Witch (my sister) and I are going  out tomorrow to find some trouble…or at least some cake!

So what are you all doing this weekend?

News and Wednesday Worthy

I’ve been holding off on announcing this, but since we’re working on the contract now, I guess it’s “safe” to announce.  I’ve sold the German rights to The Plus One Chronicles to Egmont LYX, the same German publisher that publishes Maya Banks, Lisa Renee Jones, and many others.

I am thrilled! I never imagined I’d sell foreign rights like this.  They contacted me, asking to read THE PROPOSITION  and POSSESSION.  I was so busy writing the third book and oldest son’s wedding that I didn’t think about it too much…until the editorial director contacted me.  I gave them a synopsis of OBSESSION and they made an offer.

Oh, and the German editor has read OBSESSION and likes it! Yay! She read it as soon as I got it to her last weekend, LOL!

Quick Reminder: OBSESSION should be up at most venders around Oct. 10th.  I’m just waiting on the formatter now!

So that’s my news. Now lets switch to Wednesday Worthy. This is one of our “old friends”:


So do we still think he’s worthy?

I want the cooler weather back! But today is supposed to cool off so I’ll stop complaining.  I’m getting my Obsession file ready for the formatter and working on Cowboy Marine. And wow, getting back into Cowboy Marine is hard. I’m in my usual, write-delete-bang head on desk-write, then bake/eat/whine phase of starting a book. So all is normal in my house. Here’s a sample of “normal” in our house:

As we were cooking dinner the other night, Wizard said, “Something wrong witch?”

“No, why?”

“You’re staring off into space. And muttering to yourself. I think you just said something about Doughboy fish hooks.”

Jerking out of my fugue, I stared at him. “That makes no sense. Why would I say that?”

Getting down a couple wine glasses, he asked, “Then what did you say?”

“Nothing.” I wasn’t in the mood to share my deep personal thoughts.

‘Fine, I’m not pouring you wine if you won’t tell me.”

Damn it. “Cheater.”

“I prefer the term winner. Spill or no wine.”

I’d have accused him of blackmail but he had custody of the wine bottle, so I caved. “Okay I said ‘cowboy fish hooks.” Where the heck did he get doughboy fish hooks? That’s just silly.

Wizard rolled his eyes and poured my wine. “Yeah, that makes so much more sense.”

“Try living in my head.” Hmm, that might have been snappish.

“I’m going to need more wine for that.”

Sadly, I’m going to have to agree with that. Although my drug of choice tends be coffee. But wine works too :-)

And now, here’s our candidate for Wednesday Worthy!

So what do you think? Is he worthy?

Happy Wednesday! I sent OBSESSION to the editor yesterday for the second round of edits. I’m thrilled about that.  My friend Laura Wright asked me if I’m happy with it–I think she does that just to watch me swing wildly between “I think I am” to “OMG what if it totally sucks?” I mean she’s known me for many years now so she’s just screwing with me, right?

Speaking of Laura, did you guys know that the book collections she’s in WICKED FIRSTS has been on the NYT and USA Today list for three weeks? It may even hit again this week. That collection of sexy hot stories is awesome! And I’m so proud of, and excited for, all six of the amazing authors of that collection!

Today I have to go to a routine doctor appointment then I’m meeting Biker Witch (my sister) for coffee. We haven’t done that in forever, so I’m looking forward to it! I’m soooo happy to get out of the house! I’ve been pretty close to house bound for three and a half weeks with the stupid Achilles thing.  But I’m healing and can almost walk normal if I’m careful.

Once I get home it’s back to The Cowboy Marine. I’m liking this story but I need to write faster!

Okay today’s candidate is a rerun. This is one of my personal favorite pics.

Weekend Roundup

Happy Labor Day for those celebrating! I think we’re just staying home, maybe swimming and either BBQing or picking something up.

I’m fleshing out a few scenes and doing final edits on Obsession. And learning to let go :-)  Then it’s onto my Cowboy Marine. I’m getting excited to write that book. Logan Knight is in desperate need of some down time and  goes house on his family ranch, only to find his beloved home inhabited by a woman on the run with her baby…good times!

My weekend varied widely. Work wise, things are going really well and I’m extremely grateful for that. But Saturday I finally told Wizard I need to go to Urgent Care for my foot/ankle. But for whatever reason, the Urgent Care that’s supposed to be opened until five, closed at one and was closed on Sunday.  I was a tad frustrated but whatever…it’ll heal and it is getting better so it’s fine. I’m just going stir crazy, I can’t work out, I can do anything but work and eat.

Which some people (WIZARD I’m talking about YOU) would say it’s making me cranky.  Actually it’s making me fat and cranky but even Wizard isn’t brave enough to say that.

But today will be better! How was your weekend?

Cover Reveal & Wednesday Worthy!

Many of you know I belong to a group of authors called Rock*it Reads We are a collective of authors who are both traditionally and indie published. Three of us; myself,  V.K. Sykes and Juliana Stone have published sports romances and done well individually. In fact, V.K Sykes hit the USA Today list. So we got together and decided to contribute one of our sports romances into a super hot bundle. Introducing…


Three sexy sports romances that bring the heat!



I’m excited to join with these talented ladies in this endeavor. These days, self published authors can work together to cross promote and support one another.  But it’s also a way for readers to get a taste of new-to-them-authors for a reasonable price. For me, it’s a pleasure to introduce my readers to both V.K. Sykes (who also write as Vanessa Kelly), and Juliana Stone. I love working with them on this project and hope to do so again in the future!

PLAY HARD will be on sale July 15th. I’ll keep you all up to date.

Now lets switch gears to Wednesday Worthy. I’m trying to find new models, so here’s my latest discovery:


So what do you think?
