More Yays for Wednesday (s?)!

I told you I had news and I'd be back again. So now...I am back with a wonderful, amazing, I couldn't believe it yay!

O Magazine (yes that O) posted an article about Erotic short stories for women by women and um...I was in the lineup! Amazing. Of course, I was in excellent company. So, go read the article and pick up one or three or five or seven of the works listed. You won't be sorry. Not to mention, the holidays are upon us, who doesn't need a little stress relief. Ya know? *wink wink nudge nudge*

And might I say yay! to Rose Caraway of Stupid Fish Productions for curating such a wonderful anthology. Yay!

Long Time No Boast or WTAF It's November!

I cannot fucking believe it's November, first of all. Second of all, I have a lot of things to post about but haven't been on the ball, so to speak.

I work a real actual human job twice a week now, so let's just say I'm adjusting to the change in my schedule.  After about 2 decades working for myself, I don't have very single day all day to accomplish what I want. I am giving (yes, yes, in exchange for money--whatever) two WHOLE DAYS of my week to other people. Trust me, it was a mind fuck. However, I'm working in antiques and since vintage and retro rank right up there with my love of wording, it's all good. I'm learning a lot and it helps my online vintage shops and my writing as well. It's fun. Except for waking up in the dark. That is not fun.

Anyway, I'm here to driveby of good news number one. I was in Dirty Thirty Volume Three (it's just as gorgeous as 1 and 2, might I say) with my story Wet Rewards. It's edited by the amazing Rose Caraway of Stupid Fish Productions. If you want a gorgeous volume of fiction that's as pretty as it it dirty, this is for you.


I'll be back soon (fingers crossed) with more news. Have a super Sunday! And grab a copy of this book. The weather is turning cold and it's perfect for a nice snuggle...or, ya know, a little more than a snuggle ;)

Hot Little Excerpt of Ring of Fire...

 I fell into a burning ring of...

Well, you get it!

Good news. The amazing Janine Ashbless posted an excerpt of my story Ring of Fire from her anthology Lust in the Dust.

You can head over to her blog and get your read on.

While I'm here, I'll mention that I have added to my weekly schedule. What did I add? A part-time job! Partly from necessity, this business isn't what it once was, sadly. Partly from love, I'm working with vintage and antiques and I love that. Whatever the reason, it's an adjustment. I haven't worked for anyone who wasn't me for almost two decades. I'm like...whaaaaat? :) Why am I so tired and why can't I feel my feet anymore? :)

So wish me luck, and remember, my body, brain, and spirit are adjusting to working for 'the man' again (heh). So if you email me, give ma wee bit of extra time because of all the exhaustion and crying.

Release Day!

...was yesterday! But I didn't have all my links, so a girl does what a girl can do.

Happy Friday! I'm thrilled that Honey is available just in time for your weekend reading.

If you read it, drop me a line and tell me what you thought. I'd love to hear from you.

Get your weekend on!


From Blushing Books (save a dollar)

For your Kindle

A dark secret keeps Bishop Kelly unattached and closed off. She has only one persistent friend, and now she’s moving away from him.
Running her online fitness group from a borrowed professor’s home in Constantine Falls, New York, seems like any other life decision. There’s no one to consult and no one who has her back. Life is what it is – a solo gig.
Bishop isn’t expecting a strange local, Finn “Honey” Sinclair, to jump start her memories, her  desire, and her heart. He has his own intense history that haunts him. In the heart of this oddly quaint town, Bishop is suddenly learning that even in the midst of unexpected loss, there can be inexplicable gain.
Publisher’s Note: This steamy contemporary romance contains themes of power exchange.

Cover Reveal, Bitches! (aka Woohoo!)

Good afternoon! Yesterday, I got my new cover for my upcoming novel. I've been waiting and waiting.  Of course, I was out and about and way far away from a computer. It was my 3rd anniversary with The Bearded Giant (yay!) and we were out galavanting. This included gluten free Chinese food, thrift shops --big and small, and a hole in the wall book shop where I scored big.

So let's get to the good stuff--my new cover for my brand new novel coming out the end of this month from Blushing Books.

Drum roll for Honey!

And while I'm here I'll show off my anniversary gift. A haunted bird house made by TBG for moi. Oh, and my spoils from that tiny bookshop. It looked like no one every perused the horror section. Then I showed up and went mental all over it, oohing and ahhing and snatching things up. #crazywoman

One of the sweetest gifts I've ever gotten. If only I could fit in there. It's my dream house...

If only I could read a book with each eye I could double up...

Praise for Go Slow and NEW NOVEL COMING SOON!

I'm here just to woohoo. Soon, we're going to get girl child from the end of her second year of college. I can't fucking believe that! But before I start packing and making lists and going mad, I wanted to wave this little pic around and say yay! Praise and good ratings for Go Slow on iTunes FTW.

Another reason to yay is I have a BRAND NEW novel coming out at the end of this month. BRAND. NEW. NOVEL. 

This is my first new novel since 2016 and I'm very very VERY excited. I hope to have a cover soon and the exact release date. In the meantime, happy weekend!

Release Day! Woo and Also Hoo!

Super thrilled and giddy dance going on over here because my long lost novel has been given now life by Wild Hearts Romance and went live on iTunes today.

Originally published as Poster Boy for Average, it was part of the EC debacle. It's latest incarnation is called Beyond Handsome. I'm so thrilled it's gotten a reboot because for many of my readers, it's a brand new novel. It's one of my favorite novels I've ever written. And that's saying something.

Not sure? You can plug in Beyond Handsome in the iTunes and get the first third of the novel for free. Ya know, for a little test drive. Or grab the complete series HERE.

And while I'm here, I'll admit to loving the lovely cover. She looks pretty happy to me...

More News is Good News!

Anyone remember Gary Gnu from The Great Space Coaster? That's what I was channeling right there. I picture Gary saying: More gnus is good gnus!

So, here's my gnus...I mean news. I haven't had a lot of news over the last few years so bear with me (or bare with me, whichever you prefer) in my excitement.

I will shorty have more book news! Another rebooted EC novel that will be given new life. I have a cover but I'm holding onto it for just a bit.

For today, I'll just say, yay! I did another scary thing to me. A Patreon page! I've been working on it the last week or so. I'll leave the link HERE in case anyone is interested. I'm loading the zombie exterminator books in chunks, I'm loading locked fiction, I'm loading and loading.

I'm very excited.

I'll be back shortly with that book news. In the meantime, if you're interested in becoming a patron, please leave me a comment or drop me a line if there's anything you're interested in seeing in the future.

Happy Tuesday. So far it is so much better than Monday [eye roll eye roll eye roll]

A hoot and a holler for a rebooted novel!

I can't stop smiling because one of my last novels for EC has been given a reboot and a makeover and boy is it pretty. I rarely promoted the book Poster Boy for Average due to the issues with the publisher and the overall scandal that was happening at the time.

But, God, how I loved that book and it broke my heart to ignore it and act like it didn't exist.

Good news for me and for it, PBFA has been given the new title Beyond Handsome, not to mention a smoking hot new look, and the sizable sample is now up on iTunes thanks to Wild Hearts Romance. You can grab the first chunk of the book for free and/or pre-order the title which is due out in early March.

This book is unknown to so many of my newer readers, so seeing it get a reboot and a second chance at life is something that warms the cockles of my heart. Whatever and wherever those things are!

So, head over to iTunes if if pleases you and grab your free sample, or show me some love and hit the Pre-Order button.

Happy Friday! [Does a not-so-secret happy dance :) ]

Happy New Year, Igor!

Heya, heya, all y'all,

I hope your holidays were fantastic. And I hope you survived your January--which felt roughly 2 years long to me--as well as I did. Which means: barely :)

So what's new with you?

Here in the frozen bowels of Maryland, things are...cold. But that's a lot of places, right. So I hope you are keeping warm wherever you are. Unless you're somewhere warm, then you can kiss my butt.

As far as "news" goes, the latest on the book front:

I have one coming out as a reboot! One of my last Ellora's Cave books has been given a new title, a makeover, and some TLC and will be released very soon. I have a cover but haven't gotten the go ahead to reveal so I am dying! I will as soon as possible. (Hint: it is GAWJUSS)

The bonus bit is, another of my final EC books is being given the same treatment and will also get a second chance at life. This is so exciting mainly because they were hardly promoted by me due to circumstances and a lot of readers, especially new ones, may not even know these books ever existed.

If I weren't half frozen I'd jump for joy.

I also just subbed my first brand new novel since Muse. I had the collection Lucky 7 come out in the interim, but damn, shopping around a new NOVEL feels good.

I'm working on a horror novel and shorts and freelancing and...what day is it? I have a lot of plates spinning, and it's been a long time since I've worked that way. I'm getting back into the flow and it's kind of fun.

One of my New Year's GOALS (I hate resolutions) was to read more. I have so many books that I am barely making a dent in. My method:

I drink 2 cups of coffee per morning.
Cup 1 is checking mail for work etc.
Cup 2: I read! No screens. I just read.

It's been working brilliantly. Clearly I am a genius.

And finally, I'll leave you with a perfect illustration of my life. Just for a giggle. Girl child is back at school in upstate NY (boo!) where their weather makes ours look warm. She was off to bed last night when this exchange happened.

For some reason auto correct will change all my dirty words, yet leave actual typos, and then randomly change perfectly normal words to...very weird alternatives.

At least it's consistent.
