Happy Friday!

Palm trees on tropical Caribbean beach

I’m dreaming of a tropical islands, hunks and appletinis.  Really, really dreaming of having nothing to do but sip a cool drink and read!

But I’m buried in work. And stuff like B&N having a major glitch in gifting e-books is making it really hard for me to deliver prizes. But…maybe when I get up Friday, it’ll be fixed. I feel terrible making the winners wait! I even had Carla (my assistant) try it, but she got the same error message. So I called B&N and they said they are aware of it but couldn’t tell me when it will be fixed.

So if I owe you a Nook version of THE BABY BARGAIN I will get it to you as soon as the problem is fixed!

Enough of all that :-) Saturday, Wizard and I are going to run around looking at stuff for this remodel that we somehow think we’re going to manage to do. Call us crazy–because someone needs to!  And I’ll be working. That’s about it. I’m slammed on getting POSSESSION done by April 15th, but determined to do it! Plus I have all the blog tour interviews and blogs to do.

What are you doing this weekend?

Weekend Roundup

It’s been a completely wild ride the first week out with THE BABY BARGAIN.  Color me stunned and all kinds of happy with how well it’s doing.  I owe a huge thanks to my Street Team from the the Lyon’s den, all the awesome reviewers and the publicity team at Entangled!

I also had an inquiry about audio rights on THE PROPOSITION which is super amazing. That book is getting attention.  That is due, again, to the hard work of my street team and to Carla and Book Monster Promotions for getting the word out!

Now with all this going on, three plus more books due this year and one early next year…is this the time to be…


Of course not.

So what are Wizard and I doing?

Yeah, we’re interviewing contractors for some work in the house.  It won’t be extensive, just getting started on a few things. New counter tops, sinks, medicine cabinets and mirrors in the two upstairs bathrooms to start with. Then later updating some lighting in the family room and kitchen. Eventually granite…but one step at a time, and as much as our budget can handle.

So this weekend was mostly a blur.  I’ve started reading THE STILLNESS OF YOU by Julie Bale, but haven’t had much time to read.

How about you? How was your weekend?

Happy Friday

Do you know the month of March is half over? I looked at a calendar today and choked on my coffee.

I’ve been swimming around in this set of scenes with Kat and Sloane for-freaking-ever and I finally figured out the problem.

It’s all Sloane’s fault.

I think of POSSESSION as more Sloan’es book, and every time I probe around in his emotions and back-story a little bit, he shuts down. The next thing I know, I’m online doing promo work instead of pushing through the scenes.

Sloane is sneaky like that. Or, and this is more likely the truth, Sloane’s issues are a little too close to home for me.  But since I don’t want to take responsibility I’m going to blame Sloane.

But look what I found online:

Tough Guy

This could be the elusive, never before seen, Cooper from THE BABY BARGAIN (except Cooper has scars).  Poor Cooper gets his story last though, if things go the way I think they will.

Not that I’ve been procrastinating or anything.

My weekend plans are mostly to clean the stupid bathrooms. So what are your plans this weekend?

P. S.  Bonnie Vanak (award winning author of TAKEN BY AN ALPHA WOLF, which is on my Kindle waiting to be read!) is doing a little feature on THE PROPOSITION tomorrow if you want to stop by here .



By the way, I’ve got a little guest spot on

The Baby Bargain Released!

First THE BABY BARGAIN written Jennifer Apodaca is here! All pretty and released! More on that in a minute

I had a great time at the meeting on Saturday. Doing Ask An Author is always fun, I always love chatting about writing and reading :-) Kate (Carlisle) and I went to lunch and tried to get all caught up. Why is it we just don’t see our friends enough?

And speaking of friends, a huge shout to Susan Mallery  for giving me the cover quote for THE BABY BARGAIN! We were all hanging out at RWA Conference this summer and she offered to do it. I was stunned and very grateful. Susan is like that though, very generous to everyone around her. She truly tires to help other writers succeed. Here is the cover with Susan’s quote:

These should be the buy links Amazon KindlesB&N NOOK 

And the blurb:

Seeing Adam Waters is the last thing veterinarian Megan Young expects. Ex-Marine. Ex-boyfriend. And still extremely dangerous territory. But Adam doesn’t know the secret Megan has been keeping from him. The secret that was created three years ago, after their last night together…

Adam returns to Raven’s Cove to sell his home in a final break with the town and memories that haunt him. The problem is that his attraction to Megan is as blazing hot as it ever was. But when a vicious smear campaign against Megan turns ugly, Adam learns the truth he never knew—he has a son. Now the only way Megan can protect her child is to strike a bargain with Adam.

And it’s a bargain that looks a lot like blackmail…

So how was your weekend?
