Back Again

I've been away from the blog a long time. I'd stopped writing fiction and concentrated only on writing for the day job. Or, I should say I'd stopped writing fiction for public consumption. It's been for my eyes only, and though I haven't completed a project, I've continued to write, and I think that's important. [...]

First, thanks to Laurel Cremant for inviting me to participate in this wicked, wicked event, and thanks to both RaeLynn Blue and Laurel for organizing it!

Book Sale (Random)

            I had a close to fantabulous week last week. In my mind that's reason enough to have a sale. The above-listed titles are all one dollar off, and will be so through Tuesday, the 29th.  Clicking on a picture will take you to that book's amazon page. Links to [...]

Get you some of this

Here they are, Sloan and Kendra my first engaged (that they are is only through the grace of God and infinite patience) couple, ready to perform for your reading pleasure. This is a re-issue of a book I published with Loose-id in 2010. I've gotten my rights back, added some new scenes and got a [...]

Will they or won’t they? Did he or didn’t he?

You, your family, your colleagues, your friends...Romans...countrymen -- anyone who loves a story that's got everything: tears, laughter, bad guys, the seemingly irredeemable, redemption, love, lust -- are invited to spend your hard-earned money on the re-release of  Do Me Right, a full-length masterpiece that will come out on Friday. There are new scenes, which means [...]

Lots of new stuff in the book, but old cover

I've been talking about the reinvention of this book (#SimplyWickedredux) for a couple of weeks now. I need a new cover. Heroine is a rising...well...wicked starlet in love with the reserved CEO of a British multinational. She's overcome tragedy and is now daring and irreverent, while he's practical and almost (but not quite) no-nonsense. Did I [...]

Rerelease Wednesday (Yes, I made that up, and yes, I missed it by 24 hours)

After the Morning After was first published in 2011 by Loose-Id books. It was a pretty popular book, and featured my first Asian-American male character, and my 5,000th black American female character. The story came to me in little bursts of inspiration. For instance, I was at a conference in 2008 when author a.m. wells [...]

Creating a new cover

Storyboarding ideas for the cover for the re-release of Simply Wicked -- the one in which a very American female actress bedevils the heck out of the son of a Lord of the British realm. I need something new and fantastic to go along with the new scenes I've written and the update (more Hollywoodesque) [...]
