I'm Back!!

I know, I know its been a while, but I'm back now. I promise to blog a little more frequently now. I'm getting back into my writing full force so hopefully something will be ready to send out soon. In the mean time I've been tagged by Tawny Taylor. (http://tawnytaylor.blogspot.com/ )So for now here it goes.

Here are the rules:A. Each player lists 8 facts/habits about themselves.

B. The rules of the game are posted at the beginning before those facts/habits are listed.

C. At the end of the post, the player then tags 8 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

1. I've always wanted to sing in commercials

2. I am an extremely picky eater. I usually go by looks (worst than a kid)

3. I can watch all the murder shows and watch live operations, but bugs freak me out.

4. If I can move anywhere in the world it would be Aruba. I love it there.

5. I can eat a full meal with desert and still have room for shrimps. (my favorite food.

6. When I was young, my mother always bought me blue sweaters, so now I refuse to buy a blue sweater.

7. I want to ride (okay, maybe more than just ride) on the back of a moving fire truck.

8. I'm scared of dogs, it doesn't matter how small they are.

Okay, now who to tag?

A Great Time Was Had By All

I attended my first RWA conference and I have to tell you how great it was. First I must admit, meeting all of my fellow Divas (from romancedivas.com) was wonderful. I think it made a big difference in my experience. And of course hanging out with one of my crit partners Dani. We went everywhere together and had so much fun. I also had the pleasure of meeting my other crit partners. Amanda, we live in the same city approx 30 min from each other and had to go to Atlanta to meet. Go figure - lol. And my other crit Partner Denise. It was great meeting you girl.

Now the wonderful news. I got requests!!! Yep for my romantic suspense story and my erotic novella. I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Now I have to get busy and fine tune a few things and get these babies out the door. I will keep you posted.

I hope I make it to Dallas next year. (I already have conflicting dates) so I'll see.

Great Things Going on

Another great release. Check it out. SHE'S GOT LEGS AVAILABLE from Amanda Brice from www.freyasbower.com.

Here's the blurb:

Daria Wyatt didn’t want to go to her fifteen-year high school reunion. Although she has blossomed from a wallflower into a powerful Capitol Hill attorney, she knew seeing those girls in person wouldn’t exactly do wonders for her self-esteem. If only her younger sister Kara hadn’t insisted she go. Giving in to shut her sister up, Daria borrows Kara’s high heels in an effort to jumpstart her confidence. But in her rush to get out the door, she picks up the wrong pair, a butt-ugly purple platform creation with bright green sequins…

Greg McCauley can’t believe his bad luck. He finally meets a beautiful, intelligent, intriguing, confident woman, but she rushes off before he can get her number. He knows he should put her out of his mind, but there’s just something about her. Those lips, those eyes, those legs, those crazy shoes…

To celebrate her first release, Amanda's giving away a free copy of SHE'S GOT LEGS. To enter, just send an email to amandabrice@myway.com.

Enslave Me Sweetly - Now in stores!
Enslave Me Sweetly by Gena Showalter

She has the heart of a killer, and the body of an angel. . .

Eden Black walks among humans, protecting them from the murderous evil of other-worlders who abduct and enslave. And though she appears to be human herself, Eden is an alien, a Raka, distinguished by her golden hair and skin, and gifted with the ominous ability to kill without remorse – and with total accuracy. That is, until the fateful night she has one shot to eliminate her target, a human slaver – and misses.

“Failure” is not in Eden’s vocabulary. Neither is “partner” – but that’s what she is forcibly assigned after recovering from her disastrous mission. A sexy, steely-nerved human agent, Lucius Adaire enjoys nothing more than sparking the fury – and rousing the desire – of the fiery female assassin to proud to admit defeat. Locked in an assignment they cannot afford to lose, Lucius and Eden find themselves bound in two high-stakes, heart-pounding games: the dangerous web of kill or be killed, and the erotic dance of seduction. . .

Showalter first demonstrated her skill at blending sizzling romance and nail-biting suspense set in a convincing futuristic society in Awaken Me Darkly (2005). She now continues the roller-coaster-like adventure in an equally entertaining tale that will please a wide cross section of readers. *Starred Review* Booklist.

Order your copy from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or BooksAMillion.

What A Great Day!

I'm talking about Mother's Day. I got to take the entire day off. No fixing lunch, baths, no kids calling mommy. My hubby did a great job! I'm talking breakfast and lunch in bed, napping, and lots and lots of writing. I managed to finish typing up my notes for my second novel "Sway" (tentative title). Well it's really rough but at least I got it out of my notebook and on to the computer. Now if I can get my other novel finalized and submitted, I'd be so, so happy.
