Are You a Writer?

FIRST — ABOUT THE DEAD SHALL LIVE. It’s on my editor’s desk. We spent hours on Skype freaking out over the ending and how omg-OMG-OMFG!!! it is. It is THAT FREAKING SHOCKING AND AMAZING AND PERFECT. Yes, I’ve said it. Myself. I felt that way about This Crumbling Pageant and I feel that way again. And we were freaking out over that, and over what is going on in the story into the next book, all the way to the end, and we were euphoric, and yes I am saying all this because I want you to know, yes, it is coming, and...

Score! Football Romance Has Never Been Hotter!

  Coming just in time for the biggest game of the year: one box set that includes SEVEN full-length football romances! I am so psyched about this, and am very happy that I was invited to be part of this box set. Some Enchanted Season is, for now, still an Amazon Exclusive, a program I am very happy with. And yet the timing is such that I can withdraw it just in time to participate in this box set which will be available everywhere! But now? This box set is exclusively available for only .99 pre-order. The price will go up when the book...

Christmas in October & the Pitfalls of Designing a Genre Book Cover

Christmas in October & the Pitfalls of Designing a Genre Book Cover

This is not the entry you may think it is. Oh I could certainly rant about Christmas decorations for sale before Halloween, but hey– Blah, blah, blah. We’ve all heard it and said it before, and of course I hate it. But yeah, who doesn’t? This entry is about replacing an old cover with a new cover. First, let me tell you, and this hurts. Seriously hurts. I said a very painful farewell to Paisley’s cover. I love this cover. I couldn’t believe I found a Paisley–a real Paisely right down to the cigarette...

What Have the Furys Been Up to Lately?

I know you’re wondering, and so let’s look at them one at a time, because The Dead Shall Live is being edited and time is getting tight and I don’t have time to do a longer post. Today? I am putting the final touches on a short story set in the universe of the Fury Triad. This is a fun prequel where we get to see Cosmo and Greylund in their Oxford days, along with their friend Prince Al Tair, unintentionally wreaking havoc in Ordinary London. Let the chaos begin! If you want to close your eyes and imagine three charming...

My Football Romance’s Awesome Twin!

My Football Romance’s Awesome Twin!

So when I was looking for a wonderful and muscular cover photo for Some Enchanted Season’s update, I went through many, many stock photos of guys with muscles bared who were holding footballs, wearing football gear, something. One thing that was noticeable–very much so–is that they all have very short hair. Which isn’t actually the norm for professional football players in the US. And yet, it is what is trendy fashion and what the models have. So even though Rusty Rivers doesn’t have short hair, I wasn’t...

An old favorite with a new cover!

An old favorite with a new cover!

Football season is starting, folks, and here at PlanetPooks I decided it was time to update the cover on my football romance. Dare I admit it? Okay, I’ll admit it. I dragged my feet on this one. I didn’t want a bare-torso on my covers. But hey, the readers have spoken. Since I changed the cover at Amazon and let my newsletter subscribers know about it, sales have quadrupled!  And I guess honestly? This is the cover that sexy and surly Rusty Rivers has deserved for a long time. Brace yourselves. Grab a fan and your smelling salts....

Happy Independence Day!

Happy Independence Day!

This is my least favorite ‘big’ holiday if you’re talking classic activities. I can’t tolerate heat, and I live in Texas. Unless they’re part of another activity, fireworks are okay but generally not worth the trouble of going to see them. And yet I love the Fourth of July, Independence Day, if you’re talking about what it represents. And my favorite way to celebrate? Movies. Air conditioning. Wallowing in the feel-good warm-and-fuzzy patriotic feels I get from watching my favorite movies for the day....
