#WriteWed I am inspired by all of you . . . and #Giveaway to say Thanks!

Thank you for the friendship and inspiration!

First of all, sorry for the delay in posting, but it’s taken me two days to catch up with work and writing obligations after my trip to RWA 2017. I had a blast, despite the Orlando heat and humidity. I got to spend time with old and dear friends, make new friends, and of course, get in a number of very interesting and useful workshops to help me be a better writer. A win-win situation!

Here’s a collage I did of some of the fun people I got to meet and spend time with at the conference. I will have a lot more photos for you to tomorrow!

50 Book & RITA Pin #ThrowbackThursday

With the RWA Conference coming up in July, I’m so excited. I’m getting together promo items, I’ve got a date with some new RWA members for a trip to Disney, other dates with my agent and publisher, a signing . . . SO MUCH TO BE EXCITED ABOUT.

And I’ve divested all the assorted pins from my badge holder and have left only two for now: My 50 Book Pin and my RITA nomination pin. So that’s today’s Throwback! My two pins.

#ManCandyMonday Giancarlo Stanton

I’m back from San Diego and boy did I have a blast. The All Star Game has inspired me to finish up the next baseball book and I had an amazing time attending workshops, talking with friends about work and life, and meeting new people at the RWA Conference. I’ll be sharing some photos tomorrow from all the events.

For today, since I’m in baseball mode, I’ve got sexy Giancarlo Stanton up at the plate. He might be a Mets killer with the might swing of his bat, but he is a hottie!

#RWA15 #NYC A fun video for you!

Wow, I am just recovering from the conference! I had a great time and it was loads of fun. I was so happy to see some of you there and to also spend time with some long distance friends. The workshops were great and I’m inspired to get to work on some new things. For now, here is Part One for you with some photos from the conference.

Look what came in the mail and a lovely time!

Last night was wonderful! I had a lovely book signing with my friends Nisha Sharma and Tina Gabrielle at the TO BE CONTINUED bookstore in Metuchen, NJ. Central Jersey readers this is an awesome place for you to go, hang out and pick up some books! Plus they are sooo romance friendly!

We had an absolutely lovely time there and I’m looking forward to doing another event there soon.

Of course, the night got better when I got home because there was a package waiting for me and guess what it contained? SQUEEEE! My RITA® nomination pin and an invite to the RITA® and GOLDEN HEART® reception. Here is a photo of it (yes, I put the frame on it in the photo! Will have to think how to preserve the invite for posterity’s sake).

THE CLAIMED #Paranormal #Romance Release Day!

As an author it seems as if you wait forever and ever for a release and then BAM – It’s release day!

Today is the release day for THE CLAIMED, the second book in the Sin Hunter Paranormal Romance series. This is the follow-up to my RITA® nominated book, THE LOST.

Here is a little teaser for THE CLAIMED:

Victoria Johnson loves her life. She’s her own boss in a quaint beachside town, and has great friends who keep her grounded. If only they knew who she really is: an heiress to an ancient race who possesses astonishing superhuman powers. It’s Victoria’s duty to restore her clan of Light Hunters to their former glory by choosing the perfect mate. In Christopher Sombrosa, she just may have found him. Strong, smart, and successful, Christopher exudes a powerful energy. Their connection is sensual, irresistible-and forbidden.


A member of the Shadow Hunter clan, Christopher has defied his own father to lead his people away from affliction and violence. Yet he cannot ignore his duty to carry on his ancient bloodline. Stunningly beautiful and brimming with an erotic life force, Victoria is everything Christopher ever hoped for in a mate . . . but as a Light Hunter, she’s his mortal enemy. Together, they could unite their warring tribes. But murderous factions on both sides don’t want peace-and they’ll stop at nothing to keep light and darkness apart forever . . .
