New Release

Compromising Positions releases today!Falling in love is the last thing on his busy agenda…but compromising positions can lead just about anywhere.David Strong knows how to do a lot of things—run an international fitness company, finesse stock portfolios and stay out of emotional entanglements. That is, until he gets tangled up with Sophie Delfino and her Sensational Sex workout. He’s supposed to help her demonstrate Kama Sutra positions for her couples’ yoga class. The rigorous postures require more than just physical control. And his co-instructor unexpectedly tests his control to the limit.Sophie’s been fantasizing about David since her teens, but she never dreamed she’d actually be expected to run through her intimate desires—with an audience! The class is very professional, tame even—or it would be, if she’d been in any of the positions before. But she hasn’t—except in her wildest fantasies about David. Sophie knows she wants David in every way, and she’s flexible enough to use whatever she has to get him.David can’t afford any unexpected distractions. Besides the sensual positions he has to endure without embarrassing himself in public, there’s an embezzler stealing from his company. And then there’s Sophie—who is well on her way to stealing his well-guarded heart.Warning: This is one exercise program you won’t need to consult your doctor before beginning…unless he’s hot and available for house calls. The Kama Sutra isn’t for the prudish or faint of heart, and neither is this story.Read An Excerpt Online

Weekly Update

Family Stuff
Went to meet with Diebtic nurse. I now have to test my blood sugars 3 times a day. I really suck at this. Doing better on diet, it just means eating more veggies. Kids are fine. Couple of the chickens got loose and they had to wrangle them up. Extremely funny to watch. I wish the damn snow would melt.

Best thing that happened this week: It actually happened last week. I signed contracts for 2 new titles. Falling Hard And Fast with Shadowfire Press, and A Damsel Without A Dress with Pink Petal Books.
Lesson learned: Good things come to those who try hard and don't give up.

Worst thing that happened this week: Mom was in hospital. Hate that I'm so far away and can't run and check on her myself. My sisters arre there and keep me informed, but I still feel useless.
Lesson Learned: I need to move back soon before I lose my mind.

Upcoming Schedule:
Orthodontist meeting Monday. We have to be there at 10am. I'm just happy she's finally getting them taken care of.
26th- Leaving Thursday for Massachusetts. Staying from March 26th - March 31. They have no snow at my sisters. I can't wait. I'd pack the car now, but I'm afraid I'll be too tempted to drive away.
28- Saturday Night Dinner With The Divas.

21st-27th- Going to RT Convention. Came up with eally unique costume for Fairy Ball. I will take tons of pics for website gallery page.

15th- Wedding in MA. Nephew is getting married.

Strange Question Saturday

I've decided that Saturday shall be the day I pass on the bizarre or wierd questions I can't answer, or just think are really out there.

We have all heard them I'm sure. Things that just pop into peoples heads for no apparent reason. My kids are really good for this. My daughter recently asked this one:

What do they do with the dirt left over when they bury someone?

Umm... Save it for later is my guess. I mean really who would think up a question like that?

When Death falls in love with a saint, there’s holy hell to pay.

Sara Lane expects to die young, but when the time comes, she’s not ready. She needs two more weeks to finish a homeless shelter before winter sets in and people die on the streets. Who does a girl have to sleep with to live a few extra days?

How about the sexiest, most dangerous of all bad boys—Death himself?

Cain’s job as a designated death dealer is clear. Kill and move on. Don’t get attached. Don’t feel. But when Sara pleads to cut a deal for more time, Cain is tempted by an unexpected craving for this beautiful, courageous woman. As their lips meet, her life force shakes him to his bones, seals the bargain—and breaks all the rules.

Keeping Sara alive is a dangerous proposition. The Powers That Be are furious and unleash bloodthirsty demons to steal Sara’s soul from Death—the one man who’s hell-bent on saving her life.

Warning: This book contains the sexiest of all bad boys, a woman desperate to get what she wants, deadly soul-sucking demons, surprise visits by Biblical characters, frog grenades, very bad dogs, sacrifice, redemption and eternal love.

Family Update

Still working on schedule. I will have it ironed out by Friday. Have some really good ideas. I want to be original. Don't we all?

As for this week was exciting and boring all at the same time. Sticking to working out a half hour a day. I met with dietician and now I'm starving and tired, but following new diet.
Found a car for my daughter. A 1992 Oldsmoblie. She loves it. And I'm getting a Suburban, no idea on the age, but it looks good. Now.

Best thing that happened this week: Can't tell you yet. I'll scream and shout it in due time. I promise.
Lesson learned: Good things come to those who try hard and don't give up.

Worst thing that happened this week: Got my sons test results back from the shrink. He total agrees no depression, I told his teacher that but they wante to test anyway. He did say he show signs of social phobia, because he prefers not to hang with his friends after school and likes to be independant. I'm not so sure, but I planto keep a close eye on him.
Lesson learned: If t's not one thing it's something else.

Getting ready for RT, and trip down to MA. Can't wait to see my family. Got lots of little gifts for my nieces and nephews.

Upcoming things on my schedule:
Meeting at sn school on 17th at 7:30a.m. This is going to be a test of my will power. I swear if his science teacher gives me a hard time I'l send my husband in next. He doesn't take crap from anyone. Guess that's where the 15yr old gets it.
Meet with diebetic nurse on the 19th Husband said he'll drag me kicking and screaming if I try to skip it.
Going down to Mass. March 26th - March 31. They have no snow at my sisters. I can't wait.
Going to RT Convention in April. Came up with eally unique costume for Fairy Ball. I will take tons of pics for website gallery page.
Wedding in MA in August. Nephew is getting married.

One night is all it takes to prove that the three of them are a perfect match, at least in the bedroom.Taryn has to decide if explosive sex and the feelings that are quickly overtaking her are worth the risk of losing it all–she knows only too well that you can’t count on fate to always go your way. Richard sees Caleb and Taryn as the perfect couple but isn’t so sure there will always be room for him.

New Blog Schedule

I've decided to have some sort of schedule here, I guess I should have organization in one facet of my life. Once I have a firmer plan I'll put it up. For right now I've chosen Sundays for family day. I'll give a little taste of what my life has been like for the past week. Probably boring, but we'll see how it goes.

Okay here we go:
This week was a bit hectic with vet visit, kids school that kind of stuff. Sticking to wroking out a half hour a day. Missing chocolate really bad. Really focused on finishing and submitting my novella, and first in my series. Both sent out, yay. Loooking for car for my daughter, I think I found one for me.

Best thing that happened this week:
My sons suspension is over and he's back in school. Things have really changed since I was in school. You punch a friend playfully in the arm and it considered assualt. Friend didn't complain substitue teacher saw and freaked out. Anway not dwelling on things I can't change. Lesson learned: Times have changed, not alway in a good way.

Worst thing that happened this week:
I somehow managed to export everything in my Hotmail inbox into Outlook. after screaming and almost tears I managed to get it all back. Lesson learned: Don't touch any buttons if your not 100% sure what will happen.

It was recommended that I find my son(15) some art classes to attend. So I'm thinking about taking him down to my mothers in Massachusetts for the summer. The Muesum of Art has a lot of classes he could take, and The Center For Crafts has some for his age too. Problem I would really miss my hubby and other two kids (20, 19). It's looking more and more like we'll be moving back. We're waiting for daughter to graduate next year.

Upcoming things on my schedule:
Meet with dietician on the 10th (oh I'm so looking forward to this,NOT)
Going down to Mass. March 26th - March 31
Going to RT Convention in April.(will take tons of pics for website gallery)
