Updates!

 Photo: And...more proof!


As many of you may know, last week I went to New Orleans for a few days with 7 of the Nine Naughty Novelists (there were 8 of us in total there). We had an absolute blast sightseeing and writing and brainstorming. Yes, we actually worked! We made some plans for 2013, talked about what we want to do with the blog and ideas for events. Some shared their writing career plans, what they're working on and where they want to go. We even did some writing, all lined up with our laptops at the big dining room table in the condo we had.

We also had fun, though, eating beignets and crawfish and shrimp and fried green tomatoes and grits, and drinking hurricanes. It was my first trip to New Orleans and I loved it! The atmosphere on Bourbon Street Saturday night was crazy! I love the history of it, the European feel of the narrow cobblestone streets and old buildings. We saw the Mississippi and I took a tour of the Garden District and a cemetery, and saw some of the remaining destruction caused by Katrina.

The eight of us all plan to write a short story set in New Orleans for the blog, and I was so inspired I already wrote mine, so watch for that! I can't wait to read the others.

And now it's back to reality. I've just finished up a manuscript that I'm putting the polishing touches on before setting it aside to rest. I also just sent a revised manuscript to my Samhain editor. This book is already contracted, but needed a few changes. It's called How To Love and will be out in the spring.

My next release, With Strings Attached, is already available for pre-order at Amazon, if you're an Amazon shopper, and it looks like someone is buying it, as it's already climbing in the rankings! That just blows my mind!

And if you didn't see the cover reveal, here's the lovely cover for it:


And also while we were in  New Orleans, Meg Benjamin, Erin Nicholas and I (sadly Sydney Somers wasn't able to be there) discussed promo ideas for our Promise Harbor Wedding series that will be out March/April. We have some fun ideas for that including an on-line bachelorette party!

Cover reveal! With Strings Attached




Here it is! The beautiful cover for my next release..... This is the first book of a three book series called San Amaro Singles. San Amaro, California - where the locals' leisure time involves sun,sand and surf. And maybe sex! With Strings Attached will be out January, 2013.

Here's the blurb for it, too!




The melting point is where it all comes together…or makes a big mess.

San Amaro Singles, Book 1

Corey Fenwick keeps her bitter past as hidden as the sweet centers inside the handmade chocolates she sells to a growing list of upscale customers. Experience has taught her the only person she can rely on is herself, so her best-friends-with-benefits relationship with Matt is perfect—no strings attached.

After his last girlfriend deemed him “boring”, Matt Ferber watched her ride off on the back of a Harley with a rock musician. Figuring he’s doomed to “let’s just be friends” with the women he cares about, the arrangement with Corey suits him fine too. Until his old friend Dylan Schell rolls into town to hang out while recovering from a surfing injury.

The sexy bad boy makes Corey’s mouth water, and she figures a harmless fling won’t hurt, especially when Dylan suggests she come between him and Matt—in bed.

It’s a win-win-win situation…until somehow there are strings attached. And too late they realize they’re getting all tangled up.

Warning: This book contains an independent woman, two hot guys, some trash talking, a little jealousy, a few beers, chocolate body paint and scary stuff like falling in love.
