Its Monday! Though, with it being summer vacation and the kids are home, it feels like just another day. This being Monday doesn't have the same effect it does when the kids are on the bus and I have a quiet house to just write. Which, is only happening a few days a week right now, but its fine ... since I wasn't writing for so long.
Today, my month long tour for Finding Home kicks off! Its been awhile since I have done a tour, so I'm excited. I really love this story and I hope readers do also.
I am getting prepared for my release on the 18th, Accidental Love (Hot Bods 3). I wish I could say the 4th and final was written and in edits for my readers, but with the move, it only half-way done. So, I don't have a release date yet, or really any news, other then its Francesca's story and she is going to have work hard to prove to the man that she loves him!
To start your Monday right, pop by my first tour spot. There is a giveaway!http://closeencounterswiththenightkind.blogspot.com/2012/06/giveaway-and-guest-post-by-lacey-wolfe.html
After that, go see Carrie Ann Ryan
and Lia Davis
Its Monday again and wow, what a week. I was off from all type of work last week to move! We are now all moved into my parents and patiently awaiting closing on our new home. Yes, you read that right, we FINALLY have a new home under contract. Yay! We can't wait.
This week, its catch-up week. I have got to get my edits finished on Bound By Pleasure
, which releases in August. And I need to finish writing Bare Necessities
, which is also part of the Clearwater series like my latest release, Finding Home
So, this week, my post is short. I hope to have more to share next Monday. :)
Hop over and see Carrie Ann Ryan
and Lia Davis
Its Monday, again. The last Monday in my house. Crazy. I can't believe moving week is here. Hopefully we find a new home soon!
Lots of exciting things happened this past week. One, my first non-erotic, Finding Home
, released! I'm thrilled to share this story. Its a sweet romance that I hope will touch readers hearts.
Over the weekend, Sarah's Chase
was marked as free. And I've been amazed to watch the sales rank drop! Sarah's Chase
officially became my first book to hit best seller ranks! Thank you to everyone who downloaded this free story. I hope you enjoyed it.
So what's next. Writing. I really need to get writing. Its been over a month since I've really sat down and typed away. I have two work in progresses, Bare Necessities
, which will be another clean story, and the last Hot Bods book, Opposites Attract.
All my edits are done from my back to back releases and I am glad. I can hopefully settle back into a writing routine, even with the kids being out for summer.
I hope to see you next Monday. Be sure to stop by and see Carrie Ann Ryan

It's Monday! And this is one Monday I love. This is my daughters last week of pre-k. Its the last Monday to myself. And I plan to enjoy it. Oh wait...I won't. I'm having to get as much packing and cleaning done as possible while she's at school. We are closing on this house May 18 and still haven't found a home. Nope, I don't have good news from the time before. We have put offers in on three houses and so far, no luck. :( Until we move, we won't be able to look at more homes. We have to get this one packed. But thankfully, my parents are going to lets us all come stay with them a bit.
On book news, I just released a new short story, Sarah's Chase
. Its a 5k BDSM/Cougar themed book. Its part of the KDP program from kindle. So for the first 90 days, this story will only be on amazon.
Later this week, my first non erotic is due to release also. I am really excited to be dipping into the "cleaner" market of books also. Be sure to check back for details on Finding Home.
I am actively working on Opposites Attract
, the fourth book in my Hot Bods series as well as Bare Necessities, which will be another non-erotic with the Clearwater Series. I have also began edits on Bound By Pleasure
, a BDSM that comes out in August. Check out the HOT cover on my Coming Soon page.
Thank you for stopping by. I'll see you next Monday. Be sure to say hi to Carrie
, who runs this meme and see what she's up to.
Happy Monday! Or at least I hope it is. As some know, we are in the process of buying a home. Ours has already sold and we are closing soon. Now we needs to find a new home! And well, this market is crazy and we've been in several bidding wars. Today we find out if we're getting the house we are currently bidding on.
Other then that, my latest novella, Tempting The Manny
, has just released early. I'm very excited about this story. It was fun to write and I hope will leave you happy. And guess what, I'm giving away a copy right now. Go HERE
to enter and also read an excerpt/blurb. The excerpt is very steamy.
I'm also in the middle of edits on a short 5k BDSM story that is due to release, May 4th
. Its titled Megan's Chase.
I just finished edits on my first non-erotic romance, Finding Home
, and its set to come out May 11th
. Yes, things are busy in each and every way for me right now. I think I just might be ready for a vacation. Perhaps I can find a beach somewhere, where no one else is, and I can just sit and relax and only listen to the sound of the waves. Nothing else. Sounds like Heaven.
Thanks for stopping by. I'll see you next Monday, hopefully with good news. :)
This meme is hosted by the awesome Carrie Ann Ryan
. Be sure to stop in and see how her Monday is.
Its been awhile since I just blogged about what's going on in my world of writing. So to start off, I can announce that my story for the Clearwater Series at Ruby Lioness Press, titled Finding Home has hopefully finally found its home. Its been a bumpy road for this series, but I think the multi-author series and my story have finally settled in. I hope to bring more details soon about Finding Home, which is my first romance that is non-erotic. I hope in the future to bring my readers a softer side of me along with the naughty side they are used too.
I finished the third novella in my Hot Bods series, and its titled Accidental Love. I've turned it into my publisher, and now I have to wait as patient as possible to see if they are interested in it. This one is a tad longer then the first two, but my writing is getting better so my word count is improving.
I have another stand-alone novella out in the slush piles looking for a home. Its called Tempting The Manny. I hope to hear something soon - good or bad.
And now onto upcoming releases. Book 2 in the Hot Bods novella series, More Than Useful
will be releasing on February 20. If you click the book title it will take you over to Beachwalk Press where you can learn a little about the story. I also have a short story in an upcoming anthology releasing on Valentine's Day from Ruby Lioness Press. I'm very excited for February! Hurry hurry!!
BUT, February is almost here. And the sale of Amber's Muse will be over. So, if its been on your to be read list, hurry up. Its only 1.99 for a few more days. (on my home page you can find buy links).
And lastly, this past week I was on a radio show. If you want to hear about my book I'm working on and having coming out, give it a listen. And just so you know, I'm the southern one with the drawl. :)
If you made it this far in reading, thanks! I love comments, so feel free to leave one just saying hi. ;)
This week has been a rush. Its been a good week though. First off, in case you didn't know, I sold my short story WANTED: WIFE to Midnight Magic Press and it will appear in their Valentine's Anthology, BE MINE, AGAIN. When I saw the call for submissions, I wrote the short story in two days and that includes editing. It was such a rush. I've always wanted to be in an anthology. I've already seen some of the other authors who will be in it with me, super excited and honored to be with them.
My book tour started this week too. I had a special post this week. Its a post on how I got my pen name. My name is special to me and I would love it if you follow the link below to read it.
There are also several giveaways going on right now. So, if you haven't bought a copy, what are you waiting for, go enter one of these giveaways for a chance to win it!
I've got a busy evening ahead, I'm hoping to get MORE THAN USEFUL all polished up and sent to my editor. Fingers crossed that she loves it. This story was very tough for me to write for some reason, but I think I have quickly fallen in love with it, and it just might be a personal favorite of mine.
Places I visited this week:
Rambling of This Chick - I asked if you prefer novels or novellas
Black Erotic Cafe - Interview, spicy excerpt, and giveaway
The Phantom Paragrapher - How I choose my pen name
My publisher is sponsering a giveaway also. click HERE
I hope to see you next week. My tour continues.
I decided that I was going to try to post a weekly happenings every Friday. An awesome author I love, Keri Ford
is doing this on Monday's and it sparked a light in me.
This week I didn't get as much writing done as I had planned, but it was an eventful week outside of writing. I did finish round two of edits on Fool Me Once
and last night I received the cover. I'm hoping to share it soon. I also have a release date now, December 19, 2011. I'm tickled pink I have two novellas out in 2011. Its been a great year and I have so enjoyed having my dream come true.
I had three blog stops this week.
A favorite family recipe at Spicin' It Up
Interview at author Cassandra Carr's
Interview at author Pepper Anthony's
I'm hoping to get a good but of writing done today and keep my fingers crossed nothing inter-fears. But hey, life is life and we have no control on over.
See ya next Friday
