I have the pleasure today of hosting my friend and fellow author Amanda McIntyre on the book blitz for her new release THE DARK SEDUCTION OF MISS JANE. I had a chance to read an ARC and if you like dark, sexy and suspenseful, this book is for you!
Today we’ve got some really awesome things going on for the launch party! You can download the first chapter of SINS OF THE FLESH for free, catch my guest blog with my friend and fellow author Amanda McIntyre and drop by and listen to my Blog Talk Radio Interview later today!

The signs are all around us.
Only 75 days until the end . . .
Hurry before it’s too late . . .
Act now, before it’s over . . .
Okay! I get it! It’s hard enough dealing with the end of summer without everyone beating me over the head with information about sales and all the back-to-school supplies that I’ll need to buy.
Summer is probably one of my favorite seasons. Fall is next followed by Spring. Unfortunately, if you live in the Northeast you know that we’ve barely had a summer this year.
June was a washout and July wasn’t much better. August has been sweltering and so my one hope is that we’ll be lucky and have an Indian summer.
Is that PC anymore? Indian summer? According to Wikipedia, “Indian summer is a name given to a period of sunny, warm weather in autumn, not long before winter. Usually occurring after the first frost, Indian summer can be in September, October, or November in the northern hemisphere, and March, April, or early May in the Southern hemisphere.”
As for whether it’s PC or not, according to Wikipedia, the name might mean “false summer” since settlers considered the Native Americans to be deceitful. Really? I’m therefore banning that phrase – Indian Summmer – from my vocabulary!
But I still can wish for a late summer, with nice sunny skies and temperate weather to replace the wet dreary summer we had. Maybe then I’ll get to stick my toes in the sand a little longer and take some more energizing walks down the Shore before the weather gets too cold. Hang out on the balcony and write like a demon in those very creative morning hours.
How was your summer? Are you getting your kids ready for school? Dreaming about some nicer weather before winter settles in?
P.S. – I’ll be picking the winner of yesterday’s guest blog contest over the weekend and will announce the winner on Monday. Many thanks to all of you who visited with my friend Amanda McIntyre and took the time to leave a comment!
Thanks to my friend Karin for sending these photos of cats being, well, cats. Because they’re cats, they will sleep anywhere they want!
Hope you all enjoy the photos and weekend! Also, prepare for a packed week next week. On August 4 I’ll have Raul Ramos y Sanchez blogging about his new release and also, Amanda McIntyre sharing her latest novel, Tortured, on August 5th. Don’t miss those blogs and the chance to win some prizes.
But now, without further ado, let sleeping cats lie. . .
