Getting Out There

I've been looking at different ways to promote my work. I hope to let readers know it's out there and where they can find it. I reasearched online to find areas that I think might be possibilties. I've looked at reader and writer groups, review sites and such.

But I have it stuck in my head that having someone who has read it recommend it would be best. I used to work 3rd shift in major call center and I would mention what ever books I read that I thought the other girls would like. It not only gave something to talk about in down time, but it helped me to see what they were looking for too. So in essence it helped me when knowing where I wanted to take a story I was working on. Rambling I know so back to the thoughts roaming around in my cluttered mind.

First I'll go back to reviews. The Millionaire's Fake Fiancee has recieved good reviews and that's a start.

I've mentioned on a few groups blogs that it's out. A few fellow RomanceDivas have been kind enought to put it on their blogs too (thank you ladies).

I've also sent out bookmarks as well. And I'll be attending a few conference to learn more and try to get my name out there.

The New Me (or my hair anyway)

Okay I've been debating whether or not to put my picture with my bio information on my website. The problem is cameras and I don't mix well. After some deep thinking and advice gathering from the Romance Divas and my family i decided to go ahead and post a few pictures. This (to the left) is the best my family could come up with.

Now do you believe me about the cameras?

At my daughters insistance I let her drag me to the hair stylist. She claimed an update haircut might make me feel more confident for the photos. The jury is still out on that, but my head feels a lot lighter.

She's just taken these photos:

CW Medium

By Sela Carsen
Samhain Publishing
ISBN: 978-1-60504-374-6

All it takes is a spark of Grrrrrl power to set the swamp on fire!

Librarian Debra Henry is boring. And she’s okay with that. Really. It’s not as if the teensy amount of witchcraft that flows in her veins is worth getting excited about. Yet someone—or something—thinks it’s worth crawling out of the swamps to attack her. Those “somethings” are werewolves.

When one of them is hurt saving her, the least she can do is take him home and patch him up. Healing him stirs more than her senses. Maddox Moreau awakens the magic that sleeps in her blood. And suddenly, life’s not quite so boring.

A wildlife manager at Congaree National Park by day, Maddox likes being the BWIS—Big Wolf In the Swamp. By night, he lets his wild side out to play lone wolf. At least until he meets the one woman who can share his soul. Perhaps it’s best, though, if he holds off on sharing his preference for raw meat.

Rescuing her seals his fate—but only if he can protect her from a rogue of his kind. A werewolf with a nasty stalker streak…

New Release


The Jealousy Plot – By Jolie Cain

For as long as she can remember, Callie has been in love with her next-door neighbor Trey, a firefighter on the Oceanside Fire Department, but he has never seen her as anything more than a good friend, a pal. Then for her birthday, Trey gives her something wonderful ... not the usual tire jack and mace spray. No, he gives her a beautiful antique locket, and Callie begins to dream that maybe he has changed the way he sees her. After all, when a guy gives a girl jewelry, it means something special--right? Only her friend Marianne Riley isn’t so sure. She thinks Trey needs to be nudged just a bit in the right direction. So she enlists the aid of her brother, one of Trey’s fellow firefighters, in a plot to make Trey jealous. But Ben Riley seems interested in more than simply helping Callie out. And he arouses feelings in Callie that Trey never has. While Trey has always made her feel safe and secure, Ben makes her feel wild and out of control. He pushes her and fulfills her darkest desires. Eventually Callie must decide ... which firefighter is the one that sets her heart on fire?

Captive Flame – Rhiannon Leith

As a djinn, a being formed of fire, Adara has spent centuries enslaved to the human Magi, passed from one to another, made to do their bidding. She yearns for freedom. She yearns for love.

When firefighter Peter O'Connor pulls her out of an inferno, he snatches her from her current Magus. This new master has no idea of what or how powerful she is, and the opportunity to break free finally becomes a real possibility. If only her body didn't react to him with such abandon. If only his touch didn't make her lose the will to do anything but be with him.

With the Magus closing in on them, and Peter's life in danger, Adara must choose between her desire and her dreams.

And with supernatural arson attacks sweeping the city, Peter must decide if a firefighter can ever really trust a fire?
