Call this host blog fail. I’m a day late and several dollars short and I totally screwed up. So, to make up for that, I am going to promote my (hopefully) forgiving friend Selena Illyria today and tomorrow on the blog.
She’s one of those people who is always there for everyone, always selfless in her friendship, in her willingness to help out, in her unwavering support. You should check her out…
Flushed and Fevered 1: Bewitching the Vampire
OUT NOW at Etopia Press!
A stubborn witch vs a vampire king…who will win on Halloween?
Bridget is a witch who has been given a sweet deal—nab a rogue vampire and score a big payday, but she must deliver him within twenty-four hours. She’ll need help from Joe, the local vampire liege, to find the rogue vampire fast. Joe agrees to give her the information…if she agrees to play a few hands of poker with him. For each hand, she must reveal a bit about herself. And for each hand she wins, he’ll answer any question she asks. But Bridget isn’t sure she can keep things objective—not when Joe gives her that seductive grin. (more…)
Now, the message in this about saving face, not acting crazy, just smiling, keepin’ it together… Yeah, I wasn’t raised that way. There’s been a lot of stuff going on the last few weeks in the publishing world and for the most part, I’ve kept my mouth shut save for a few cryptic comments here and there and agreeing with others who’ve taken a stand… I’ll be posting about that later this week, but for now, it’s Music Monday…
This song was also the inspiration for my book, Keep It Together…
Jilted bride? Check. Hangover? Check. Shotgun? Double check. Wayward groom’s half-brother Colt on her porch the next morning, hat in hand, with concern in his sexy blue eyes, and apologies on his full kissable lips? Uh… Check?
That was six months ago. Now, with a job she loves, her heart mended and her pride put back together, the last thing Chrissie expects is that same half-brother standing behind her saying he’s got an answer for her. Problem is, she can’t seem to remember what she’d said on that long ago day that would warrant a visit from him.
Colt does. And as the CEO of a cookie company, it’s his job to pay attention to the details.
“Maybe I should have married you instead.” She’d been right. He was the brother she should have married and all he has to do is convince her of it with a blend of persistence and seduction. But their first kiss is hotter than the southern Georgia summer and catches him off guard. She’s primed and ready to burn up the sheets and he’s not inclined to say no. Will she believe that he won’t ever leave her? Maybe. If he brings her cookies…

We haven’t had an Author Friday in a while, so when my pal Virginia Nelson was looking for people to help her out with a cover reveal, I volunteered my blog and decided to revive the thread. If you’ve got any authors you’d like to see featured on Author Friday, let me know…
Now, I want you to take a look at Virginia’s upcoming release…
How do you tell a girl who wants to find a monster that you turn into a skunk?
Her Sexy Skunk
Coming September 25, 2014
Find it on Goodreads here:
Christine Jarrods wants to be a writer of paranormal young adult fiction so she’s pursuing a degree in English. By day, she tackles Chaucer. By night, she stalks the streets looking for something magical to inspire her muse. Finding a thread that suggests one of her profs might be some flavor of shifter, she decides to dig…even though she’s been warned to let it go.
Oliver Standish has a secret. Like a lot of guys his age, he’s scraping by, delivering pizzas, trying to pay off loans from a failed attempt at school, and crushing on Chrissy—the one that got away in high school. Only his family knows he’s also trying to deal with being a shifter…he sure can’t tell Chrissy. With her fascination with magic, he knows she’d want to know more about it—but how do you tell a girl who wants to find a monster that you change into a skunk?
About the Author
Virginia Nelson believed them when they said, “Write what you know.” Small town girl writing small town romance, her characters are as full of flaws, misunderstandings, and flat out mistakes as Virginia herself. When she’s is not writing or plotting to take over the world, she likes to hang out with the greatest kids in history, play in the mud, drive far too fast, and scream at inanimate objects. Virginia likes knights in rusted and dinged up armor, heroes that snarl instead of croon, and heroines who can’t remember to say the right thing even with an author writing their dialogue. Her books are full of snark, sex, and random acts of ineptitude—not always in that order.

I don’t have the blurb yet. I think I’m on draft 394… But hopefully soon.
In case you haven’t noticed, both covers (The Cupcake Cowboy, too) so far have been changed. They’re brighter and a little more fun than the original ones. Which, that wasn’t the artist’s fault. No, it’s all on me. My vision of what I wanted and the vision of what readers would buy was totally different. So, they had to undergo a makeover and I really like them. The third book in the series, The Tattooed Barista, will have a fun and playful and sexy feel to the cover. So, be on the lookout for that one soon. (more…)
See? And I bet y’all thought I’ve been doing nothing for months on end…
I was so thrilled to be asked to join this group of authors. I hadn’t been asked to join an anthology and to be completely honest, my feelings were kind of hurt. There are people I know and considered friends who’ve been in several and none of them ever asked me if I’d like to participate, not even for the anthologies in genres I write in. (more…)
