Head down, pages flying onto the screen…
Friday, February 1st, 2008

I love it when I’m in the groove. When ideas seem to flash like lightning bugs in a summer night.

For the past few months, writing has been work. “Work” being a four-letter word.

I trudged through the last Avon story, forced out another paranormal for Ellora’s Cave, then had to immediately dive into a three-part single title that’s due like yesterday. Really.

Good news is I think I’ve found my groove again. Pages have been coming the past few days the way they used to–complete scenes rolling like a film reel through my head, snippets of dialogue whispered into my ear by an unseen muse. I thought he’d deserted me.

Yeah, I think mine’s male. Grumpy, sometimes unmotivated and lazy. But ssssssmokin’ when he’s “on.” He was particularly horny today. Whew! Helps when he’s in the mood. I don’t have to work so hard. I just lie there…well sit here, actually…hands poised above the keys, waiting for him to come.

Afterwards, I escape outside for a cigarette, replay the scene in my head, decide if he’s too blue for Prime Time, and then head back for more. When he’s good, I’m insatiable! I think he likes cowboys–must be the big brass belt. I know I like finding what it hides when I peel open the belt, unsnap the button and slide that zipper down.

Mmm-mm. Just wrote a two-chapter love scene. Makes me edgy when I’m done. Loved sinking fingernail-deep into the long, slow ride. Maybe I’ll open up the file again and see if he’s recovered enough to go a little longer.

Contest within a Contest!
Sunday, January 27th, 2008

The Ellora’s Cave chatters are getting a chance to win prizes in a scavenger hunt at my website this morning, but I didn’t want to leave out anyone else who might need a nudge of incentive to take a look around my new digs! So here’s another chance to win!

This contest ends tonight at 10 PM CST! Send the answers directly to me at!

The questions…((drumroll))…

1) What book is arriving in bookstores in 29 days? What was the prequel to this story?

2) What additional books will be arriving by June of this year?

3) From the “For Readers” page, which character smoldered in the corner for a couple of books?

4) Where did I move to recently and why do I love it?

5) From the excerpt of the book mentioned in question #1, what was Hell to Nicolas?

Be sure to post a comment here to say hello and what you think about the site!

The winner will get their choice of Into the Darkness, Wild, Wild Women of the West or Seduced by Darkness (although they will have to wait for me to get my author’s copies of this one!), a collection of signed coverflats for several upcoming novels, and bookmarks.

Join me Sunday, January 27th!

I’ll be hosting the Ellora’s Cave chat list all morning along with Myla Jackson and Shayla Kersten. If you’ve never given one of our list days a try, you should!

Of course, we will be running scavenger hunts all morning long, so plenty of chances exist for you to win something exciting. And best of all, you have all three of us at your complete mercy!!

At 11:00 CST, we will duck out for a live hour-long chat with, you got it, more chances to win cool stuff.
