The winner was Morgan Van Lier! I hope she enjoys Naked Secrets!
Whoot! Haven release day!!! I will be doing a week long blog tour to promote Haven very soon. I'll post where I'll be as soon as I know. Drop by and you could win a copy of , Naked Secrets, book 2 of the Legacy Series.
Do you love this cover or what?!
Hopefully you'll love what's inside just as much.
A home of her own, a man of her own, her wedding day fast approaching is the life Connie Bennett had only dreamed about. She should be thrilled, right? So why isn't she? Excellent question!
The assorted shape-shifters, vampires and other government experiments she and her cohorts rescued from the FARM have been acclimated--mostly. An old acquaintance, Private Gary Vance, returns to make them rethink that comforting notion.
You'd think by now, Connie would realize life doesn't always go like you wish it would, or expect it to. But, even if she had, never in her wildest imaginings would she have predicted this!
A were-jaguar’s on the prowl. Posing as a kitten he’s taken in by Becky and even though all his powers are unknown, he’s accepted as just another experiment gone wrong. Way wrong!
As Raf, Terrell, Leeann and Jimmy make preparations for the upcoming nuptials; Connie can’t seem to keep her mind on the joyful event. What is mistaken for wedding anxiety turns to something far more sinister.
Private Vance has his own agenda. He plans to make Tom pay for all the agony he endured at the FARM and Connie is his tool of choice! Using his hypnotic pheromones to bend her to his will, Vance plans a wedding gift to die for.
It will take more than Raf to save the day and bring about a happy ending.
Well, I sent my edits back last night for Haven, the third book in my Legacy Series. Now I'm waiting for the cover to be tweaked and then a release date!
Impending edits used to scare the bejeesus out of me...but not anymore. Sure, always expect the worst, as writers we are trained to do so. Since my first book, my edits have gotten easier and easier! I have learned so much since I began this journey. I self-edit, use online editing tools, and only then do I send it off for submission. I must be doing something right!
Now if the sales were as easy...
Watch for Haven to release from Steam E-reads as well as my blog tour in July!
I'm sorry! What can I say? It's been a hectic and often sad, 6 months around my home-place.
I've lost 3 of my darling dogs since the first of the year. The last was Frankie, my Velcro dog. I was always plastered to me and I loved him dearly. He passed peacefully at home without intercession, thank God. With Jack and Chloe, I wasn't so lucky. Now Harley is having a back issue...
I was forced to re-home my horses due to time and financial constraints. Believe me, that was a hard decision. When I take on an animal, I see it as a life long commitment. I was lucky enough to find them a home with a co-worker where they will get to stay together. That helps ease my heart a little.
A relationship came to a close. No, romance writers aren't always lucky in love. No automatic HEA for yours truly.
My release date for Naked Secrets was March 18th. I got my edits two days before! Nuff said. Now I'm waiting on edits for Haven which is due out this month. Waiting is not something I do well.

Just when everything in Connie Bennett’s life seems to be coming together, hidden secrets threaten to tear her world asunder.
After killer sex, a whirlwind courtship fueled in part by demon curses and friend Dee’s less than helpful magic, Connie and vampire entrepreneur, Tom Thornton are engaged and living the dream with best friend Raf and wonder wiener, Willy the dachshund.
So, why the bodyguards?
The government has taken a sudden interest in their well being. Has the trio really been placed under the protection of the FARM or next on its hit list? Were the plain-clothed shifters sent to watch to their backs or put a bullet in them? As Tom’s secrets are stripped bare, all are confronted with the consequences of past decisions.
Can their love and friendship survive a clandestine government agency’s hidden agenda and a pact with the devil?
You'd see your shadow too, if you were surround by all those lights!
Are you as sick of this winter weather as I am? The entire country seems to be getting blasted time and again with ice, snow and arctic like temperatures.
Having a snow day may be fun if you're a kid but not so much for adults, well, this adult. I have tons of stuff that needs doing outdoors. None of which can be done because either the ground is covered in snow and ice or has turned to mush from a brief thaw. (My horse stalls are horrid!)
My guy lives in the city and can't get here. I live in the country where salting roads isn't I high priority. This would have been excellent snuggling weather but 15 miles of slick roads separate us.
So, what to do?
Since it appears I will have plenty to do outside once the weather gets better I have decided to address the inside of my home. Why not start spring cleaning? Yesterday, besides my usual Saturday chores I cleaned closets. Now I can find things again! I scrubbed both bath and kitchen from top to bottom. Try that with 8 cold dogs underfoot. I dare you!
So what's my point? Life is what you make it. You can whine about how unfair it is. I always do. Or you can turn it around and make it work for you.
Be safe. Be warm. Be productive. I hope if you're snowed it, you're with the one you love!
is change. I'm afraid I have to agree at this juncture. Seems to me, that's all we do theses days, change, adapt and reconfigure ourselves into whatever gets us through another day.
Is that a bad thing?
Since the first of the year, (yep a whole 24 days ago!) I have faced many changes. Some for the better, some not so much...at least according to moi. I came to grips with a "relationship," I use that term loosely, I had struggled to hang onto for 3 years. I finally realized that no matter how badly I wanted it, I couldn't make it happen and to be honest I was tired of playing the fool.
I'm sure it will be good fodder for a book someday. (There's always a bright side if you look hard enough.)
I've realized that as a single woman, in this economy, I have to cut more corners and make some sacrifices I would rather not. Life goes on.
On the upside I have taken steps to secure my future and my happiness. I have accepted a new position which will increase my income and allow me to meet more people. It's up to me to be happy and do what needs doing!
I've dusted off a manuscript started a while back. I now have a beginning and an ending ...just have to fill in that pesky middle and of course... find it a home! While awaiting edits on Naked Secrets,I've contracted Haven for a July release also with Steam E-reads.
Life is at best a teeter -totter, sometimes you're up high in the air and sometimes your butt hits the ground HARD! Make the most of those highs!
