Pics from the Romantic Times Convention
Wednesday, April 29th, 2009

I promised I’d share, so here are the first few. My sister and I traveled together from Little Rock to Orlando. Our trip started on a sour note when we found out our flight was cancelled, but we were placed on a Delta plane and made it by evening. We missed the first of many parties with our Allure Author buddies, but them’s the breaks. Six of seven of our AA buddies made it. Meet the crew!

I've got a winner! Two actually!!
Tuesday, April 28th, 2009

Thought I’d post this quick. I’ll be back later with photos from the conference, but I didn’t want you to have to wait a minute longer. I got up at the butt-crack of dawn to cut and paste all the entries into a single document, thinking I’d use the scissors and put all your names into a big bowl.

But I had 27 pages of entries when I was done! So, I cut out the comments and just kept the names and that took me down to 7 pages of single-line entries!

Still too many. So, I added numbers to each line, then went to an online random number picker and voila! The generator chose “69”—no kidding.

Lucky number 69 is…

But wait. Before I announce the first winner, let me just say how much I enjoyed reading through all those comments—from all three sites where you entered. Some of you were very, very persistent! I hope it paid off.

Okay, lucky number 69 is…Becky Ward!

The winner of the multicultural stash was much easier to choose with only one day worth of entries. That winner is lucky number 16…Eva Sikka!

I need both Becky and Eva to send me an email with your snail mail addresses. Congratulations! Thanks to everyone for playing!

Oh, and I have two more winners to announce later today. One is my March website contest winner—I know April’s almost gone but I forgot!! Bad author! And I have the winner to a contest I ran on the Aphrodisia loop a while ago. Again, mea culpa! Be looking for the new contest rules on my contest page later today!

Catching up with laundry…and contest news!
Monday, April 27th, 2009

I’m baaaack! And oh, my aching feet. I napped yesterday evening in front of the TV, slept solid for about nine hours when I finally managed to get off the couch. I can’t believe how tired I was. I thought I’d paced myself well this time around. Ha! :mrgreen:

I brought back a nice stash for my winner. And I have another box I’d like to put together as well of multicultural books. So, if anyone would like to be considered for the multicultural stash, send me an email! Email Me!

I’ll post winners tomorrow and start sharing my RT photos and stories. I had a great time—reconnected with friends, met new friends, drank way too much!! Oh, I did work too. I have an exciting new project that my buddy Sasha White and I pitched to our Samhain editor, but more about that later!

I’m glad to be back. Be patient for a day and then I’ll make an announcement. I have other prize winners that I will be mailing stuff to this week as well, so if you’ve been wondering…I got a little behind trying to get out the door to Orlando. This is catch-up week!

Thanks to everyone for posting. I can’t believe how busy this place has been while I was gone!

Today's all about you!

The contest ends Sunday, so be sure to post!

Before I left for Orlando, I preset my daily blogs to run each day. I’m hoping I had time at the conference to respond to all your comments, but I know you’ll understand if I didn’t. This is the last post until I get home sometime Sunday afternoon. Which means, this is your last time to enter the contest for the box of conference goodies!

All you have to do today is answer this question. Have fun with it!

If, like the newspaper or milk, you could have anything of your choice delivered to your doorstep every morning, what particular item would you want it to be?

Unleashing the Tiger is out today!
Friday, April 24th, 2009

Remember! The contest runs through Sunday!

Click on the pic—it will take you right to the Ellora’s Cave website where sometime this morning you can order your copy of my story. As always, I’d love to hear your feedback and any requests you might have for stories in the future! Happy reading! ~DD

Unleashing a new story!
Friday, April 24th, 2009

From Fallen Angels Reviews: “…Delilah Devlin packs a powerful punch with ALTERED STATES: UNLEASHING THE TIGER…Ms. Devlin creates a beautiful romance with a paranormal twist that gives the readers what they are asking for and so much more…”

From Bitten By Books: “…The story starts smack dab in the middle of the action, drawing you in immediately, and flows smoothly into the passion between the two main characters. This is one of those books where you are so drawn into a story that you hate it when it ends…There is a lot of action, plenty of steamy moments, and a depth that is hard to find in a short story.”

From Just Erotic Romances: “…I thought [the choice of hero] was a brave and unusual choice for the author to make…It was definitely worth the read…”

From The Romance Studio: “…I really liked this book for its very sensuous love scenes…I loved how Khalid’s character was portrayed as very alpha yet he was so tender with Casey…This short story moves along swiftly with a mixture of military action, intelligent yet amusing dialogue, and red hot sex to keep the reader thoroughly entertained.”

One more day!
