Monday's Pick-me-up

Could you resist?

Waiting for Edits

Kilt-A-Licious by Catherine Bybee

Kilt-A-Licious by Catherine Bybee is on sale now. This is the long-awaited sequel to Kilt Worthy, which I loved. I bought this book the day it came out and it’s sitting on my Sony waiting for a quiet time when I can read it undisturbed. Because I love Katherine’s writing, I can recommend this book highly before I turn on the reader.

That and I’m a sucker for a man in a kilt, really.

Here’s the blurb:

Time traveling Highlander, Chase Donnach, would like nothing better than to enjoy his last days in the twenty-first century in the arms of the feisty, redhead Sheri Lansing. When their mutual sexual pleasure develops into much bigger emotions of love and forever Chase has to convince Sheri that he’s the Highlander for her.

All of Sheri’s life the people she grows to love leave her. When Chase slips into her heart, she reflexively pushes him away. Can Chase really love her as much as he says, or are the destined to only be lovers lost in time?

If you don’t know Catherine, she’s a wonderful person as well as a talented writer. She is also queen of the vlog. You can find her here.

Skip a Starbucks Day

You all know I love coffee as much, or more, than the next person. But here's the thing. Skip Starbucks Day is a fundraiser that will ultimately unite a family. CJ and Clint Redwine, and a group of bloggers, are asking you to skip your indulgence for one day and donate that money to fund to bring a Chinese orphan home.

Not only can you help make the difference in the life of a child, there are tons of prizes to be won. Prizes like signed books, Voldemort's wand, Twilight saga, Harry Potter.... and the list goes on.

For more information, visit CJ's website, The Last Word.

Monday's Pick-me-up

I think the fact I can hear his accent everytime I look at him makes him sexier:


Not too long ago, I read a post about how writers can measure success.

When I started writing, I thought succes would be signing my first contract or at least the second or third... I mean by the third contract you're not a fluke...right?

But after signing the fourth, I'm still looking ahead, at the next goal.

I know it sounds cheesy, but I honestly think success is a journey, not a destination.

You can be proud, happy, and grateful at what you've accomplished but you need to keep moving forward.

I want that fifth contract, I still want to acquire an agent and see my name on a New York-published book. But I think even then I'll won't have reached my goal.

For me, that will be always be finishing the next book, and making that book better than the last.

So what about you? Do you considered yourself a success? If not, when will you?

Free Read

In case you missed it, there is a Free Read up on my website!

It's a scene, a fairly tame one, that came to me after listening to Wake Up Call by Maroon 5.

I hope you enjoy!

Let me know if you like it. You know how insecure writers can be. ; )


Monday's Pick-me-up

Do you know what today is?--besides Monday?-- It's the first day of school. And to celebrate *drumroll please* I'm going to treat you to this:

Have a great Monday

Monday's er, Tuesday's Pick Me Up.

I'm so sorry. I hope you all had a good Monday anyway(I was going to say wonderful, but hey, it was Monday.)

For all of you unfamiliar with Skid Row, this is a fabulous Sebastian Bach.



Yes in the plural!

*Throwing confetti*

The Wild Rose Press offered a contract to Rendezvous, now known as Hooking Up, which is a short story close to my heart. I am so excited to work with my editor at TWRP again. In a word, she's awesome.

And *drum roll please* Samhain offerred a contract to Creative License a 40K novella that is also near and dear to my heart. The hero in Creative License is one of the yummiest I've ever written.

I'm a little nervous... this is a whole new ball game. But I'm taking one step at a time.

Some of you know it's been a long, dry period creatively for me and these contracts... well, they're like confirmation that I made the right choice.

I'll keep you all up to date

Monday's Pick-me-up

Today, as I was looking through my folder named, Sexy Men, trying to pick out a pick me up for you ladies, I pondered what an awesome job I have. ; )
