Ready...Set...Go!

It's only Monday and I feel like it should be at least 
Thursday!

The next few weeks are going to be a bit of a race for
me - lets hope I finish in the top ten.

Today was the launch of my Salvation Book Tour over
at the Goddess Fish Party Pavilion. First day and 
Miranda from Salvation has her own cheering section, and
knowing the trouble that follows her around - she's going to
need it!

The rest of the week for me is lined up solid and by the time
Halloween rolls around (my most favorite thing) I may have
to nap to get through it.

Tuesday (Triple jump!):  1)My weekly blog over at Romancing the Muses
2) I'm interviewing Jareth from Salvation over at Between the Pages
3)Coffee Time Romance 6th Annual Halloween Bash

Wednesday: I'm being interviewed at My Reading Addiction

Thursday: Interview at Peony's Pleasure Cafe

Friday: A guest post over at The Phantom Paragrapher's blog

Saturday/ Sunday : I'm taking part in LASR's Halloween Scavenger Hunt

I hope to see you somewhere during my busy week!!

Join in on the tour and comment at the stops to be entered
in the draw for a tote of pirate trinkets and treasure...
Pop over to the Halloween Bash at CTR for a chance at more prizes from the authors involved...
Join the scavenger hunt at LASR for a chance at a gift certificate and prizes donated by all the participating authors...

I may look like this by Sunday night but it will be worth it.

White Halloween?

This morning's wake up call was not what I had planned!
I have a few days off - in a row - and the power was off
before I was ready to be awake - which made news of this
my wake up call from the cafe I manage... 
This is what was outside the window ...

That was the eight foot high shrubs that we 
use to create the scary element in the yard 
for Halloween.
It doesn't look scary now.  I'm not sure if
this is staying - I hope not - I need that bush to
be eight feet tall and bending and twisting in the
wind.
A green Christmas I can work with -
A white Halloween?  Not so much!

Seems like a perfect day to sit somewhere
warm and comfy and read (without looking out
the widow) ... I'll share a story with one
random commenter so they can read too.

I've put together a short that is going to
be written into a full length novel next year.

All that leave a comment today will be
entered in the draw tonight.
Don't forget to follow my blog for more
chances to win in the monthly draw and big
draw at the end of the year.

I'm taking suggestions on how I can
work with this white stuff to create my 
scary ghoul yard for Halloween - if
you have an idea, let me know!

Now I'm off to pray for rain to wash
all this white away.

Contests galore!

Salvation's cover has been entered in a
cover contest.
Am I trolling for votes - yes I am.
Please take five and pop over
to vote.

I'll drawing one random follower
next Friday (29th) to win the monthly
draw of one of my books.
Follow my blog and get your name
in the draw for the big prize tote in
December and a monthly draw for a
book in October and November.



Monday the 25th is when my Salvation
blog tour starts, follow along for a chance
to win another tote filled with trinkets and
pirate treasure!!

Here's a excerpt for Salvation:

Setting the linen down, he looked to the clothes again. He had
tried twice to work the jeans and was at a loss. He heard the door
close to the front room of the house. He smiled; Miranda could
show him how to put these odd things on. He grabbed the jeans
and opened the bathroom door.
“Miranda, I am not—” He glanced up from the jeans to see a
woman—not Miranda—standing inside her door but a rather tall,
light-haired woman. He offered her his most charming smile.
“Hello.” She continued to stand there with her jaw dropped open
and her eyes huge. He was uncertain what he was to say as to
why he was standing in Miranda’s home with a small linen cloth
wrapped about his waist.
The door opened behind the silent woman and Miranda came
in. She stopped abruptly and looked up at the woman.
* * * *
 “Jody? When...” She looked over at Jareth standing outside the
bathroom door, jeans hanging from his hand and a white towel—
a small white towel—wrapped around a mouth-watering tight
waist. His chest was bare, beads of water from his hair dripped
down it. Had she ever seen a more tasty set of abs in her life? She
didn’t think so. She worked her way...slowly...up to his face to see
he knew exactly what she was thinking. He winked at her, snapping
her back to the problem at hand. She turned her head back to
her drooling, stunned friend, Jody. “Jody?”
Jody turned with her mouth still hanging open. She shut it
with a snap and looked back over at Jareth.
Randy turned to Jareth. “Could you give us a moment, Jareth?”
He inclined his head, but not before sending her a devilish
look. “Most certainly, little one.” He smiled widely at her gawking
friend.

Random phone pics!

I have few 'hobbies' now in my busy life, 
but I've been told recently that taking sky
pictures with my phone (mostly while not driving)
seems to be a hobby for me.

Here are a few of my random phone pics.




Okay now after looking through my phone 
memory ... they may be right.

Chat on Sunday

Sunday I will be at the Romance Lives Forever
group from 6-8 pm (Eastern) for my very first
chat.  I've been to many chats with other authors
as a group, but this will be my first attempt as the 
author.
It should be interesting.
During the two hours I'll be discussing my present
books and those to come. I have some free copies
to give away as well as a sneak peak in the form of
a short story that will be written into a full length one
in the future.

Stop by and say hello if you get the chance.
If your not a member of the group, you'll have to
pop in before hand and join up.  It's a fun group 
where the readers out number the authors.

Hope to see you there!!

Updates

Usually when I'm a.w.o.l. for a few days it's due to the
insanity at work.  Not this time, well, it was still insane
at work with the Thanksgiving weekend here, but I
managed to grab a bit of time for writing through it all.

The first book in the Animal Trilogy - Animal Heart is now  

   roughly 90% finished!  The writing part that is, the editing
and proofing before the submission phase is a ways off 
just yet.

Here's a bit about it:


Three women without knowledge of their true heritage...
Three men that have waited for their mate all of their lives...
Hearts and tempers collide with wild passions and animal instincts
in the Animals Trilogy 

I also managed to get some work done on 
The Witch Within
From another new Trilogy - Sisters of Heart
It's still a long way from being near the end, or even the middle, 
but any progress is always a good thing.
I'll post more about this one when I'm a little further into it.  The
Characters haven't quite let me know which direction we're going
to go with just yet.

And finally the plot for After the Silence wouldn't stay out of my
head this past week so I managed to find the time to jot it down and
get a start on it.  Around 1000 words at this point, but the ideas
just keep coming, so I'll be working on this whenever I have a bit
of time to spare (when I'm not supposed to be sleeping).

All in all a great weekend for me!

For the rest of this week I'll be getting ready for the chat
on Sunday.  I put the link in my calendar list, stop by if
you get the chance.  I'll be giving away a few copies of
my books as well as a sneak peak into a future novel in the
form of a short story.

One more pic from one of our weekend run and hides.

Body and mind in two different worlds

My body is here, present and accounted for -
exhausted but still going...
I've been busy since Salvation came out yesterday,
doesn't matter how prepared you think you are - 
you always remember something else to do after
a new release.
I'll be updating my wip counters as well as my
calendar with the latest sometime this weekend.

This is where my mind is ...
can't wait to go back in the spring.
Don't you think this would make a great cover background?
Hmmm

Salvation is here!

Salvation 
is here!

Two centuries of not existing is about to change...
click on cover to go to Eternal Press

I'll be in the Eternal Press chat later today
3:30pm (Eastern)
Stop by for a chance to win a pdf copy
of Salvation!

Lost in a place between living and dying, 
confined to roam endlessly over the same grounds for all eternity and cursed to never be seen again, Jareth wanders through time alone and longing for the sea once more. When he realizes there is one thing he yearns for more than he ever did the sea, he is tossed into a world he is unfamiliar with.
Stuck with a life that never goes her way, Miranda is determined to get at least one thing she wants. When that one thing turns out to be a sexy pirate that lived over two hundred years ago, she finds herself faced with more than one challenge to have him.
Can they break the curse and be together?
