Tuesday Wrap-up!

Today is one of those days where I just need to take a breath and catch up on all that’s been going on!

For starters, I’m hard at work on THE PRINCE’S GAMBLE, a romantic suspense novel for Entangled Publishing‘s DEAD SEXY line. If you liked MORE THAN A MISSION or SECRET AGENT REUNION, I think you will really enjoy this story about a Russian prince who owns a casino in Atlantic City and has to deal with the prickly FBI Agent sent to help him ferret out a money laundering scheme and find one of his missing employees.

THE PRINCE’S GAMBLE will be out in July 2013.

Also got the good news on the release dates for THE CALLING Vampire Novels that are being REBORN in 2013 with Entangled Publishing. Look for Diana and Ryder to return in a series of stories beginning in February 2013! The first story, BORN TO SERVE, explores where Diana and Ryder are after nearly four years in their complex relationship. BORN TO SERVE will also set the tone for the novels to come as Diana and Ryder deal with Diana’s declining health and the possibility that death may call for her soon.

The second novel, BORN TO LOVE, will be out in May 2013 and will feature Diana’s ex-partner, David Harris, and Diana’s best friend, Maggie Gonzalez. I know so many of you have been asking about David and Maggie and you will finally get to see their story wrapped up in the longer story arc of what’s happening with Diana and Ryder.

The third story, BORN TO DIE, will feature Michaela and Jesus (Jay) from HONOR CALLS. I absolutely loved the combination of the very kick-ass, break-the-rules Michaela finally meeting her match with the very by-the-book FBI Director.

SO EXCITED GUYS! THE CALLING/THE REBORN Vampire novels are a series of my heart and I am sooo sooo happy to be able to continue this series.

Anyway, that’s about it for now. Just wanted to keep you posted on what’s in the works that’s new. For those of you who’ve gotten the newsletter, you know we’ve got another party coming up in March to celebrate a bunch of things. One of the grand prizes will be this memory box I made. It’s made with some shells and other items I found along the shore along with beads and other items.

The photos inside and out were ones I snapped off doing research for the SIN HUNTER series. The memory box took quite a few days to make and I hope you’ll like it as a giveaway. I’ve also donated one along with other goodies for the Brenda Novak auction.

Fun Friday – A New Look?

caridadscordato_webuseYou’re probably visiting this morning and say, “WHAT! Am I at the right place?”

Well, this Fun Friday is about a possible new look to the website!

Last year I met an artist at RT and asked him to create a fun image that I could use on the website. What you’re seeing is a theme with the images he created.

What do you think? Do you like the new look? Is there something else you’d like to see?

Also, don’t forget the Brenda Novak Auction is still running! Take a moment to check out these donations and help a worthy cause.

Guilty Pleasures Monday – Shemar Moore

Courtesy CBS Criminal Minds WebsiteThis Monday’s Guilty Pleasure is Shemar Moore who is currently appearing on one of my must watch shows – Criminal Minds. Unfortunately it’s up against LOST which means I usually catch it on the DVR.

Shemar is an Emmy award winning actor who spent some time on The Young and the Restless and was also a male model. On Criminal Minds he plays Derek Morgan who seems to be the muscle and law enforcement type on the show. Shemar has also appeared a number of other series and movies.

Also want to share with you some items that are available at the Brenda Novak Diabetes Auction! First there is this amazing Sabor Latino basket put together by my friend, Olga. Besides some of my novels, there are some wonderful food items as well as a lovely pair of silver earrings and matching pendant.
