Blurb: When the corpse of an unidentified species is found in the woods near Pine Haven, New Jersey along with a human female, anthropologist Edie Campbell is called in by local law enforcement and the medical examiner to help identify the strange humanoid male. The discovery of a heretofore unknown species is thrilling for Edie, up until she realizes the creature has recently mated with the human female.

But the secretive Aidan hides as much of the mystery surrounding the strange creature as he explains. And Edie has no doubt that behind his simmering sexuality, and amber eyes, he knows much more than he’s willing to tell.

Up to No Good sold to Red Sage!!

Wow, my third sale to my third publisher! Up to No Good was a finalist in the From the Heart Chapter's Wallflower contest. Instead of the first chapter, we had to submit the Black Moment scene. From what I heard, the final judges loved the chance to read something other than another beginning scene. Felecia Mills at Red Sage Publishing was one of the final judges and she loved my entry enough to request the full manuscript! And this week I got the e-mail offering me a contract! I've wanted to be a Red Sage author for a long time. Their quality and reputation as an erotic romance publisher is excellent! Up to No Good will be a novella in an upcoming Secrets anthology! Did I say Wow??

Thinking Outside the Box

Another Monday Inspiration...

"Read, every day, something no one else is reading. Think, every day, something no one else is thinking. Do, every day, something no one else would be silly enough to do. It is bad for the mind to be always part of unanimity." ~ Christopher Morley

Isn’t that an exciting quote? For me, it’s a reminder to think outside the box. To stand out in the crowd of other writers. To write the stories only you can write.

We all know there’s a fine line between writing something too safe and writing something too different. Only you can decide. If it’s a story you have to write, do it. No one else can tell that story. If you don’t, the world will never have it. And that’s a sad thought.

Don’t be afraid to try something new. I finished the first draft of my current wip on Saturday and had planned to print it out and start editing on Sunday. But Sunday morning a completely new idea burst into my brain - in first person present tense yet - and I wrote all afternoon in a style I'd never attempted before. It was great. It was new.

It felt awesome.

Now let's hope that exciting feeling continues through the rest of the story.

Have a great week.

Yeah. Yeah. I know it’s only March 8th, but I’m really getting tired of winter. Tired of the snow and cold and being cooped up inside. The thermometer said minus 1 degree F this morning. The calendar may say it’s less than two weeks until spring, but here in western NY State, spring doesn’t even start until the middle of April. It’s only March 8th and I’m sick and tired of winter.

Bundling up in heavy coats and boots and gloves and scarves before you open the door. Air so cold it takes your breath away the minute you step outside. Brushing and scraping off the car every damn morning. Piles of snow plowed so high you can’t see if any cars are coming until you pull out into the street. Winds blowing the snow so hard you can’t see the car in front of you.

And all those cute sweaters I couldn’t wait to start wearing last fall? I’m sick to death of them too!

Now those of you who are into snowmobiling and skiing and the like are most likely loving this weather, but I don’t care. I like bicycling and camping and walking.

I want to throw open the windows and let in warm air and sunshine. I want to wear lightweight short sleeve tops and feel that warm air and sunshine on my skin. I want to jump into my car and take off without having to warm it up for ten minutes and clean off all the snow and ice first. I want to put the top down on my Sebring and feel the breeze blow through my hair. I want to sit out on my deck to read and write and drink my glass of White Zin.


I feel better now…

This weekend was not what we expected!

I don't know about you, but if my husband says he needs to get to the emergency room, I know that it's bad. He'd been up most of the night coughing and was starting to have trouble breathing. He was admitted to the hospital Saturday morning with double pneumonia.

Just Friday night, we'd been talking about our plans for the weekend, shopping and laundry and finishing the first draft of my latest wip. It sure wasn't to spend all Saturday morning in the emergency room and to still be in the hospital Sunday afternoon. He's been on IV antibiotics and having breathing treatments, and is much better than he was earlier. Hopefully, I'll be able to take him home on Monday.

Gotta love laptop computers. Today I'm sitting by his side, checking my e-mails via the hospital's free wireless access, posting this to my blog, and writing on my wip, even if I'm not able to get the first draft done.

Life, like writing, is a roller coaster ride. Ups and downs and rolling with what comes our way. Hopefully tomorrow it will be from home.
