Romance Authors are Taking Over Austin!

What are you doing Memorial Day weekend 2015? Me? I’ll be in Austin with a slew of fabulous romance authors. We’ll be talking books, giving away books, selling and signing books, and having a ton of fun. It’s the first Austin Author Affair convention and it’s promising to be a really great time.

More information about the event can be found here. You can also join a Facebook group with regular updates here. This is one of the most reasonable priced conventions I’ve ever committed to. It also helps that it’s driving distance from Houston.

I’m giving away a pair of tickets to one lucky newsletter subscriber. If you’re not already signed up, do so here. The only stipulation is you have to pay for your own hotel room, and yes, you MUST stay at the host hotel to win these VIP passes. The giveaway is sponsored by the event organizers.

So, what are you waiting for? Mark your calendar to join me in Austin!

It’s August!

It’s August, almost the end of summer, and we’re on the home-stretch to the first day of school. So, here’s my latest update: 

  • I still haven’t tackled Pinterest and/or Instagram. However, I did take quite a few photos when we took our road trip to Austin that will look great on both sites.
  • I’m under deadline and probably going to miss it. I feel terrible about putting the sequel to Trusting an Angel off even for a minute, but these characters aren’t talking to me without serious prompting and tears of frustration.
  • I have a TON of books added to my TBR pile. Since I’m under deadline, I’m trying not to read other author’s books. It’s hard…very hard. The newest Christine Feehan has been screaming for my attention for days.
  • I have a book signing coming up! I now have four books in print and will be signing a limited number of each on Saturday, August 9th, at the Half Price Books in Humble from 5-7 pm.
  • My newest newsletter is out here. There are a couple of other things going on next week that involve prizes!

So, how is your summer going? Are you ready for it to end?

What’s Coming in 2014

Last year was awesome in terms of my writing. I’m hoping to make this year amazing. Here’s a short list of what I’ve already got in the works, but I hope to add more to it:


New Releases for 2014

From Samhain Publishing:
Born of Stone 
Release Date: May                                         This book is about gargoyles and is set in a fantasy world with a medieval flare.                                     


From Ellora’s Cave Publishing:
Erotic Influence
Release Date: TBA
This is the sequel to Erotic Images with related cahracters, but it can be read alone.






From Entanlged Publishing:
Zerachiel: Archangels Book I (working title)
Release Date: TBA
This is the first in a series about archangels who live among humans.

I still have a ton of WIPs as well, including the sequels to They Call Me Death and Day Shift. I’m hoping to have both of those contracted sometime this year. As for appearances, I will be attending the Romantic Times Readers Convention in New Orleans in May, and will be signing at the large book signing event on Saturday. Also, if I have any print releases this year, I will organize a small book tour to promote that as well.

Stay tuned for more!

Meet Me Tonight!

Come to my book signing tonight and you’ll get a cookie! Who can possibly pass up a deal like that? That’s right, I’m not above a little bribery to meet some new readers. You don’t even have to buy one of my books. Though if you did that would be cool with me. I’ll have the above awesome cookies, bookmarks, and business cards with some book info on them. Or if you don’t want any of that, just stop by to say “hi”. I’ll be in the Half Price Books in Humble, TX from 6-8 pm. So after we chat you can look around for your next read. It’s a win-win! 😉

Comicpalooza: Day 3

So today was the final day of the Comicpalooza Convention. I didn’t get nearly as many pictures as I wanted to but still shot some interesting stuff. Enjoy!

 

The youngest attended with me as Darth Vader.

No Houston area conference is complete without Triscelle Publishing! Here’s one of their fabulous authors, Cornelia Amiri.

And here is artist Jeff Balke with one of his biggest little fans.

Comicpalooza: Day 1

So it was day one of Comicpalooza in Houston,Tx today and look who I found roaming the hallways: Jay and Silent Bob. Okay, maybe not the real Jay and Silent Bob but damn good impersonators.

There was a lot to see and do today and many, many people in costume. It was almost overwhelming as the convention covers nearly the entire George R. Brown Convention Center, which is a damn big place.



There’s definitely something for everyone: a mustache emporium, scantily clad women, shirtless men, comics, sci-fi television stars, and Legos.




The costumes ranged from ridiculous to outrageous, from unique to amazing. I didn’t take nearly enough photos but promise to do better tomorrow.





My only disappointment of the day was not getting to meet artist Boris Valejo. However, I’ve been told he did make it into town after all. So I have high hopes for tomorrow.

Speaking of which, what are you doing tomorrow? Whatever it is, change your plans and head downtown to see me!



Comicpalooza!

What’s fun, involves gaming, comics, movies, sci-fi, fantasy, literature, art, and all kinds of unique people? That’s right, Comicpalooza in Houston, TX. Today is the start of this three day convention that has seriously grown over the past couple of years. This will be my first year attending and I can’t wait!

I know it’s not easy to see on the above diagram, however I’m sure this will be available on site as well. I’ll be just above the “Artist Alley” on the left side of the first floor. I’ll be at booth #1831 alongside authors J.D. Faver and Mina Khan.


Aside from signing books and meeting our readers, all three of us will also be on panels throughout the event. I will be on two Saturday: No Right Way to Write at 1pm, and Vampires and Shifters: Why Do We Love Them? at 6pm. On Sunday I’ll be on: Prose: The Art and Science of Choosing the Right Words at 12pm, and Kick Ass Heroes and Heroines at 3pm. As far as I can tell most if not all of my panels will be in room 3.

So whether you’re a Trekkie, Star Wars fan, Whovian, or none of the above, you should come out to Comicpalooza for a unique and interesting weekend.

Update for the Masses

It’s almost the end of the school year! I’m always happy to see the summer months because that means a little less hectic schedule with the kids. However, this year I’m absolutely ecstatic because I’ll have a high school graduate also! So hopefully when school starts again I won’t be stretched quite as thin.


On the writing front I’ve got a few things going on. I’m currently working on edits for Heather’s Redemption. For those of you who have read Resignation, this book is about that Heather. Yes, I know she wasn’t shown in a very good light in the first book. Hence the name of this one. I promise she is redeemed and with a sexy hero to boot. Once I finish the edits I’ll get a release date. Hopefully very soon.

Also on the writing front, if you’ll be in the Houston area this weekend you can meet me in person! I’ll be attending Comicpalooza for the first time ever and am super-duper excited about it. I get to hang with other dorky, freaky people just like me. I can’t wait! It’s not too late to get one, two or three day passes. There will also be a whole ton of famous people to ogle once you’re done talking to me. 😉


And last but not least I need to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who has supported me by buying my books these past two months. I had a new release in April (Lunchtime Sex) and in May (Too Much to Lose). Though I won’t have the numbers in for a couple of months I’ve already had some positive feedback. So I know at least one person bought each of them. Thanks to everyone who did!
