5 Days–Summertime Contest Countdown!
Wednesday, July 1st, 2009

Remember, you have to post to win the next random prize!


Progress on next Cowboy story

Yes, the contest is still going on. I still have some things to talk about and books to tempt you into trying. And when this contest winds down, there will be another one right behind it, because I have another book coming July 14th! Can I hold your interest that long? For sure there will be more excerpts. But today, I want to share a review that warmed this little writer’s heart.

5 Cherries from Whipped Cream Reviews
“…Ploys, palace intrigues, backstabbing and betrayal, shifting allegiances and true friendship, and above all, abiding love, are what make Delilah Devlin’s dark romances so irresistible.

Do not expect a formulaic and predictable story. You can, however, count on a sensual read, hot flashes, sharp humor, unexpected twists, sudden revelations, and one of the best storytellers in her genre.

Once again, Delilah Devlin weaves a wicked tale set in a world filled with darkness and demons, and heroes you can only dream of. Her world-building is such that after visiting the real-life cities through her books, the reader is bound to be disappointed by the prosaic look of the streets and their mortal inhabitants.

We will be forever drawn back to her fantasies and her powerful characters. They step out in front of you, and you never forget them. Her worlds rise up around you and when you look up from her book, you are surprised to see familiar surroundings. Weeks after turning the last page, the characters will come knocking at the door of your imagination and whispering more secrets in your ear.”

And just so you know…
July’s moon is the Mead Moon. And just by it’s name, you know it’s time to part-ay! It’s the time to enjoy first harvests of all those seeds you’ve planted.

Enjoy your day! I’m hitting the pool! :wink:

    Fedora! Even if you don’t want to get into the water, walking along the beach, feeling that salty breeze…I never come away feeling anything but serene!

    Jody! Thanks!!

    Great review Delilah. I can’t wait to get to reading my copy.

    Congrat’s on the great review. Mark Henry was asking about your books yesterday on Twitter after Cyndi recommended them. I seconded that.

    Coffee Time Romance had a blurb up about Darkness Burning. Didn’t know if you saw it or not – Here’s the link:

    Congrats on the great review Delila!!

    I was supposed to go to the pool, but it was all cloudy and they said it would rain here in NYC, So I took my son to the sprinklers instead, and wouldn’t you know it the sun came out and it didn’t rain till early evening. But we had fun getting wet, Hope you enjoyed the pool.
