Hi eveyone. Hope you had a nice holiday. I did, but it started off a little wacky. See there is an adult store not far from here and my hubby likes to tease my by asking if I want to stop like everytime we drive by. The store uses these shiny black bags for pruchases intead of the ones you can see through. Christmas Eve hubby come home and is carrying bag like that. My mind goes to the naughty place (yeah it ends up there a lot). He ask if I want to open it early. I'm like "I'm not opening it in front of the kids" and grab the bag. It's full of candy from The Hebert Candy Mansion ( ) What a relief, but yeah a let down too.

Anyways he totally made up for it by getting me a Nookcolor for Christmas. Then today he took me to get a cover and everything. I love it and I even let him try it out.

Tonight where I am we're do for a blizzard. So if you're in the Northest bundle up and stay inside and enjoy a good book. That's what I am going to try and do.

Contest Day 18

Today was very productive in some ways. Took niece and nephew to bowling where today was their holiday party, for which I made almost a hundred cupcakes.

Then we all went to my sister's house for a Christmas/Birthday party (for same nephew as above). Things were noisy and crowded with my big family, but we all had fun, I think!

Then it was off to finally do some Christmas shopping with hubby. Let's just say thos endever didin't go well. As the kids get older, the tree gets smaller, and the presents harder to find and more expensive. I have 5 days to figure out what to get my 20 year old son. Ughhh! Banging my head against the wall on this one.

Okay for today since my brain is so tired I'm going to go with something hopefully easy.

1.) To most people, I'm a wet dream.
2.) I sometimes have a little dinghy.
3.) I usually have several mates.

Contest Day 12

Christmas card envelopes have been address, now just need to stuff them. At least I can check one thing off my To Do list.

Looks like there's a pretty hectic week on my horizon. Starting at 11:30 tonight when we hit the road for a quick (HA) trip up to Northern Maine. I say quick becuase we won't be staying there long, but the ride to get there is 8 1/2 hours long. We'll get in early in the morning stop and check out the house, then head for breakfast somewhere. Then hitting town hall to take care of business. Next stop high school to pick up sons records. Then back to Mass another 8 1/2 hours stuck in the car.

We're hoping to be home late tomorrow night. Daughter is so excited to get to see her friends even if it is only for a couple hours. Son's not too keen on the idea, but hey not everyone can be happy at the same time.

The rest of the week is going to be spent prepping for 3, yes 3, Christmas parties where I have to bring food. I see lots of mini-cupcake and mini-muffins in my future. Not to mention the Christmas shopping I haven't done. More imortantly all those chapters I need to write.

Hubby offered to help, but with his job who knows if he's even going to be around. Hell he told me he was going to take me out to eat and that was like a month ago.

Enough whining. Here's today's hints. Let's go for something easy (since my brain is tired).

1.) Cher (I love her) doesn't have one.
2.) Letterman has a long one.
3.) Leno has a short one.

What am I?

Contest Day 11

Okay I'm late again, but I have a couple really good excuses.

 First I took the niece and nephew bowling. It's our Saturday morning routine, but today when we were done I took them up the road to Border's to visit with someone special.
Then I took a trip over to my sisters to make a few T-shirts for a very good friend. While I was there I found a recipe I thought my family might like. Etoufee.

My daughter's cat really liked the sound of that. Okay so it may have been the smell, but he kept my and the hubby company while I cooked.

The hubby and boys liked it. The only comment was next time make more.

Okay so now that everyone is fed and happy, including the cat. Here's today's hints.

1.) I last a long time when conditions are right.

Just heard hubby talking about dying a red stripe down the back of my daughter's Maine Coon cat. 'We could make it a hot rod cat.' As you can imagine my daughter's not too keen on the idea.

Been Busy

The past few weeks have been pretty busy here.

Writing wise I've been in editing mode. First was Doing It Her Way, which be released November 1st from Siren Publishing. It the 1st in a six part series call What Are Friends For. Second is Uncommonly Brazen, which will be the 4th in my Brazen Sister Series also with Siren Publishing.

I'm also working on Book 2 in the What Are Friends Series. I hope to have it finished before November 1st. Why you ask? Well because I'll be Nanoing for the month of November.

NaNoing? Yes. I'll be taking part in the National Novel Writing Month. NaNo is when people try to write a novel in a month. You can get more info at For me I'm going to be writing Deliberately Brazen book 5 in the Brazen Sister Series. My characters are ready and as a panster I don't really plot my stories. Now  that doesn't mean I don't have a plan in mind. I have a beginning, middle, and end and that's a start. Once I have that I try to think on things I want to have happen in each chapter. I list them and use the chapter points to keep my story on track. Other than that I let the characters and story take me for a ride.

So as it stands I need to finish a novella, finish my self edits on Brazen 4, and  get book 5's chapter points done. before November 1st. 7 days. Then I'm locking myself in my office and only coming up for food, water, and bathroom breaks. Wish me luck.

First Fall Trip

Okay hubby and I took our 2 boys and our 12 year old nephew on a little day trip. Where you ask? Deerfield MA. We went to the Yankee Candle Factory.

The we went to a corn maze. It took a few hours. Below is a picture of Matt shooting the Potato Gun. He missed. 

After that we did a little secnic site seeing. My son thought this light pole was too cool not to take a picture of.

Summer is over! Now what?

Wait summer is over. Where the hell did it go? I had lots of plans and things I wanted to do. Now thinking about it I feel like I've been very unproductive. Of the ten or twelve things that should have gotten done only a few did.

My office got finished and I love. Thanks hun.


My hubby and I did take a little trip up the the Yankee Candle Factory. It was a great day and we both needed the break. There's so much to look at. 

                                                                                                                                                               My daughter and I went to a few conferences Authors After Dark in NJ just a few weeks ago, and RomCon in Denver back in July. I love traveling with her. She's going to hate that I used this picture.

                                                                                                                                                             Have to say it was awesome to meet so many cool people, even though I missed a few. I met a few authors Melissa Schroeder, Stella Price, Brynn Paulin, Mia Watts, and Joey W. Hill just to mention a few. Joy from Joyfully Reviewed was present at both events and easy to spot with her Bunny ears.

                                                                                                                                     Here's hoping I reach at least half of the goals I have set for the fall and winter.

I'm going to:
finish my Brazen Sister Series
work on my What Are Friends For novella series
Getting back on a noramal eating and sleeping schedule would be good too.

Wow. It's been a busy few months here in Sawyer land. My kids moved down from Maine. My offcie is alomst complete, but now I have to keep kicing everyone out. Work sucks, and hubby wouldn't if I stayed home and focus on writing full-time. At this opoint I'm thinking it would probably be a good idea. I need more time to write and taking a six hour chunk out of the middle of my day really isn't helping.

So more and more decisions need to be made and pretty damn quick. Enough whining back to writing finally chapters in book 4 of my Brazen Sister Series.

New Release

In the Big Easy, there's a legend women long for: a sexual voodoo spirit who can fulfill their darkest fantasies. And in these three steaming-hot novellas, he helps two New Orleans couples achieve the ultimate satisfaction...and may even find it himself.

In Release Me, Allegra heads down to New Orleans to heal her wounds, but she never expects to lose her heart to such a quiet, troubled man as Rousseau. She's even less prepared for the scorching, sexual spirit within him-and what he can do to her...

In Reclaim Me, Ben has loved Michelle as long as he can remember. But his beautiful artist has a way of running away from life-and what the pair could be. Leave it to the infamous spirit to help Ben prove to Michelle where she belongs: in his embrace...

In Redeem Me, it's All Saints' Day, the one day the voodoo spirit can walk the world in the flesh. When he bumps into Bethany, she might just be the reincarnation of a girl he once loved. Passion ignites, but can the couple overcome past mistakes and have a real chance at love?

Exciting New Release

SALOME AT SUNRISE by releases today from Carina Press!

It’s not nice to piss off Mother Nature…

Bryton Haruk sets out on a suicide mission to stop the bloodthirsty Skullmen from terrorizing the war-weary Land of Eldwyn. Consumed by guilt over the death of his wife, Bryton seeks revenge and reunion in the afterlife with his lost love. His purpose is determined, his bravery unmatched, until the queen casts a spell to save Bryton from himself.

Salome is that spell. A bird-shifter, she can harness the earth’s breeze and take the form of a beautiful, innocent woman. Her challenge is to harness Bryton’s pain and guide him to peace. She entrances and irritates him, tempting Bryton from his mission. Even as he gives in to the passion between them, Bryton insists on mounting a solo attack on the brigands’ compound, and Salome fears her love won’t be enough to save him…

Celebrate Summer Solstice.

Salome at Sunrise from Inez Kelley and Carina Press.

New Release

Someone is about to get some Spice in his life. Spice has nothing but the clothes on her back when she returns to Chicago. She's looking for a better life, and that means reuniting with her estranged twin sister, Sugar. She isn't thrilled to find out Sugar's boyfriend is a vampire. But then she meets Eric, once the bottle-cap-glasses wearing nerd next door - now grown into the kind of man she'd love to snuggle with on this cold winter night...and he’s offered her his room in Sugar’s house.Eric can’t believe Spice has returned. He’d given up hope of ever seeing her again, let alone having her stare at him as if he’s sex on a stick. But now that all of his fantasies for them are coming true, reality rears her ugly head and Eric must tell Spice his intimate secret; he’s actually an Alpha werewolf looking for his mate and he thinks he’s found her.Buy
Sugar had everything Spice wanted; a loving man, friends, and a home.
“Daedalus let you cut your hair?” A short man built like a bodybuilder approached her.The awe in his voice snapped Spice out of her self-pity and the protector inside reared its head. This was the second reference to someone allowing her little sister to do something. “What do you mean ‘let me’?”What kind of relationship did Sugar have? She needed permission to cut her hair? Maybe destiny brought her back to Chicago to save her little sister from some monster. Again. All those bad things happening to drive her here couldn’t be coincidental.She crossed her arms over her chest. “Where is my sister, and what are you doing in her house?”They glanced at each other, confusion apparent on their faces. “What?”The man in the kitchen stuck his head out of the door, chocolate brown eyes wide as he stared at her. “Spice?” The smile he’d given to her when he thought she was Sugar returned but wider.Her heart skipped a beat. In the light his face seemed familiar as well. “I know you.”“You should, we were only neighbors forever as kids.”“Eric!” He had grown. Stupid, of course he’s changed. But she never expected that the skinny, lanky bottle-cap-glasses-wearing nerd would develop into a charming, handsome I-wanna-snuggle-you-on-a-cold-night kind of man. “Hi.” The jobs as a hostess, a bartender, and the most recent, a stripper taught her how to talk to men the way they liked. But with him grinning at her like a happy puppy, her mind went blank.He swept her into his arms in a bone-cracking hug.“Wow, I’d forgotten Sugar had a twin.” The redhead scratched his chin. “You look exactly alike, except your hair is short.”Eric set her back on her feet. “Let me take your coat.” He tugged on the belt and untied it. To her surprise, the small action sparked warmth between her thighs. Not like he took off her clothes but she began to wonder what it would feel like if he did.Their eyes met. His pupils dilated, the chocolate brown faded to amber, and something feral peeked at her.She gasped and stepped back.The pretty oriental girl took her arm and dragged her into the living room. She chattered about making tea, but Spice’s attention riveted on Eric as he stood with the men surrounding him.What the heck? She’d seen need in men’s eyes before but this was darker, deeper, and so much more alluring.The redhead tried to take Eric’s arm, but he shook it off and stomped out of sight.Spice sat on the overstuffed couch. “What did you say your name was?”“Katrina.”A dainty, petite girl with long black hair to her knees, yet she gave Spice the impression of great strength. Life in Vegas taught her to be an excellent judge of character. Too bad it had taken her so long to learn.“I’ll be back in a minute. You stay while I make tea.” Katrina slipped away to the kitchen.Every flat surface in the living room held a book. Soft cover, hard cover, tattered, or new, Sugar loved her books. The walls were lined with shelves filled with them. Spice picked up the closest one and smelled it. The scent of paper always reminded her of her twin.The large, square coffee table in front of her held the game Risk. Different colored pieces lay scattered on the thick blue carpet.Game night at Sugar’s house. She glanced at the hallway. With Eric. Many questions formulated in her head. What happened to her reclusive sister over the past two years? When did she get friends? Probably when her only one, me, left town. Did she hook up with Eric?Hope sprung in Spice’s heart. Her attraction to him was out of character. She usually loved them tough and bad. Maybe he could be the new beginning she’d come home for.Annie Nicholas

Graduation Party = Success

All my insane running all over the place paid off, but I have to admit the bouncy house and cotton candy machine were really big hits. Daughter loved her party. There was tons of food and everyone seemed to have fun. Even the short thundershower didn't dim the mood any. The kids were dancing in the rain. Pictures can be seen at!/album.php?aid=2060302&id=1130248453&ref=mf. Now off to shower and get my day started.

My Desk Has Arrived!

Okay we ordered my new desk last Sunday and it showed up yesterday. Hubby chose to have it delivered so he didn't have to carry it up to the 3rd floor. Smart man.

I 'm really looking forward to being able to lock myself in and get some major wordage written.
My Husband is doing an awesome job helping me get everything ready.

However delivery guys must not have wanted to do it either , becuase they left the three big heavy boxes on the front porch. So hubby and 16 yr old had to lug it upstairs.

Anyway it's here. Yay!

This peice in the box is the hutch top.

Right now it's in peices spread around the room waiting to be assembled.

Hubby started to build it, but work called and he had to go.

It'll be done by Sunday no matter what, because my kids will be here Monday. Can't wait to see them.

So far has been a good week. Got lots of writing done.

Need to some food shopping before kids get here,
but looking forward to spending the week with them.
