All She Wants For Christmas...

Happy Tuesday All,

Wow, it really has been a long time since I updated. I was working on fixing up my new novel to send out, and had a bunch of other obligations so my life has been packed lately. I still have a lot on my plate, but I wanted to take the time to give a heads up on a few things. (By the way, new novel has been sent out, yay!)

I'll be guest appearing on another blog (scheduled for Dec. 3rd), I'll do my best to update the blog so you can get to the post. It'll have a bunch of my favorite Christmassy traditions in it, so stay tuned. If you're following me on Facebook or Twitter, I'll definitely have the links on there. I need to update my website--the last time I tried there was some sort of problem and it didn't go through. 

In the meantime, the ever-talented Christie Craig has a new Romance out just in time for the holidays, and today I'm going to give you my official blog review of it:

Savanna has had a run of bad luck lately. When her mom was dying, her husband decided to sleep with one of his employees, in their house. She came back from spending time with her mother, only to find the two together. Now divorced, and having had to give up the house, she finds out that the fact she didn't put her car's title in her name is coming back to bite her in the rear...in the form of a Santa-suit wearing repo man all because her ex-husband screwed her over by taking out a loan on the car's title and not paying it back.

She runs to her neighbor's house--hunky cop, Mark Donaldson, to ask him for help. Unfortunately, his hands are tied and he can't do a thing.

And although Mark is unable to assist her, he can't help but notice how attractive Savanna is. She, on the other hand, has deemed him a jerk. (Albeit, a hunky jerk).

Unable to get help anywhere, she drowns her troubles in the form of lunch with her best-girlfriends and confesses all she wants for Christmas is her ex-husband dead with a bow tied around his.... (you fill in the blank). 

What Savanna didn't bargain for was her words spoken in anger to be taken seriously. She comes home only to find her ex laying on the floor dead. This time, however, when she runs for Mark's help, the cop is determined to prove her innocence. Not only that, serve and protect take on a whole new meaning when Savanna's involved. 

You see, for the first time in Mark's life, he may have just found the woman right for him.

But is it meant to be or will doubts and murder get in the way of could-be?

Find out in The Cop Who Stole Christmas. For a Limited Time you can get this fun novel for only $1.99 on Amazon Kindle and Barnes & Noble Nook.

Have A Totally Terrific Tuesday!

Updates, Edits, & More...

Happy Tuesday all,

It's been a while since I've updated my blog. Like always, I mostly concentrate on Facebook and Twitter. However, I do try to get on here at least once in a while. I used to be so much better about this. I'm sorry!

My revisions for Immortal Dreams Book 1:  Dream Weaver are coming along. I'll be sending them to my proof reader very soon, then I'll go through it again and get it out. I'm ready for this novel to be going out into the world. It's not a Third Realm novel, but I think it's a lot of fun. I'm classifying it as a New Adult Paranormal Romance. It does have magic in it, which lends a little bit of the fantasy to it.

New Adult is a fairly new designation. I was reading in article in a magazine about how it's not quite adult and not quite YA. In general, the characters tend to be between 18 and 25. It's based on getting into new adult situations--college, marriage, adulthood. (Most of what I'm saying is based on the article I read and what I've read around the internet about the genre). I plan for this to be a 3-book series. I have started writing the 2nd book, and the 3rd book is in the planning stages.

What about my Third Realm novels? All's Fair In Love & Lion is the first out of the Third Realm books and currently the only book that's published. As to more Third Realm stories? I still have to finish Loralyn Xavier's novel. The working title is Out Of The Flames.  Loralyn is on the Third Realm Council, and you meet her through Monroe--although he doesn't know much about her.  Her mystery and past lend for some interesting story ideas--which, I won't go into (it's a surprise).  I do have hopes to write another Third Realm novel. This one would focus on Quin Erone, the Nightshade who is also on the Council. He's an interesting creature in and of himself--but his story isn't quite developed completely in my mind, yet.  His story's working title is In The Shadows

I also have another project--a New Adult Paranormal one--that's lurking in the background. I won't reveal much about that. It's an idea I worked on years ago, but could never get it to come together. I'm hoping this time it will, but I'm not positive, yet.

There are plans for a spin-off series of the Immortal Dreams books.
I plan at least 2-books for the spin-off, with a possibility of other spin-offs later.  Right now, however, I'm focused on getting the 3 books of the Immortal Dreams series put together.

For those of you who have read All's Fair In Love & Lion is there a character you're longing to hear about? If so, leave a message in the comments and I'll answer it as best I can.

Have A Thrillingly Terrific Tuesday!
