Writing About Sex: Just How Hard Is It?

In light of the Guardian article today about Bad Sex Awards 2018, I remembered this New York Times article a few months ago about writers who don’t write about sex talk about how hard it is to write about sex… Sex is notoriously tricky to describe. A writer’s tumescent member is a reader’s risible euphemism.Continue reading “Writing About Sex: Just How Hard Is It?”

“… Best Decision I Ever Made” #teasertuesday

Campbell finds me in the living room two hours later, sitting on the lambskin rug on the floor in front of his Christmas tree that’s all lit up. Fully decked out with the decorations we’d purchased at the holiday market, he added white string lights that make the golden ribbons and tinsel glisten like stars.Continue reading ““… Best Decision I Ever Made” #teasertuesday”

Mockups Anyone?

I often get messages asking me about the mockups I use for my book teasers and thought I’d write a post about it as a way to also organize the who’s and the what’s of creating book teasers. For those who have no idea what I’m talking about, this is a book mockup. It’s basicallyContinue reading “Mockups Anyone?”

Returning to New York… and a Book Birthday!

And just like that, my tenth official book is out—eleven if you count Naughty Pen’s 64k word novel this year! One of the reasons why I love Campbell and Caitlin’s story is because it brings me back to New York. The series originally began in New Mexico and while it’s been lovely returning to NewContinue reading “Returning to New York… and a Book Birthday!”

One More Day

… and Friends with Benefits will be live! And from what I’ve heard from my ARC readers, they are loving it!

It’s also really steamy… Here’s an excerpt: We stumble ontoContinue reading “One More Day”

The Current Line Up and an Excerpt #teasertuesday

So here’s my current line-up for A Different Kind of Love series for the year so far.

But common senseContinue reading “The Current Line Up and an Excerpt #teasertuesday”

Two Years Ago Today…

I press Publish on my fourth novel, Everything She Ever Wanted, the story of Harlow James, a heartbroken surgeon and Dax Drexel, the cocky carpenter who helps her discover the meaning of life. Of all the books I’ve written, this is the one that “wrote itself.” The moment I found Harlow’s voice, the race was onContinue reading “Two Years Ago Today…”

Authors for a Cause: Word Search for Warriors, Vol. 2

Over a year ago, I signed up to be part of a charity project benefiting a non-profit that trains rescue dogs to become service/assistance animals for veterans.  After submitting the words, other than a request for me to come up with a logo (and I finally did – a hummingbird* that I need to updateContinue reading “Authors for a Cause: Word Search for Warriors, Vol. 2”
