    UPDATE 10/6/14 – THIS HUNT IS OVER Today kicks off a Fall YA Scavenger Hunt, and there are tons of great prizes to be won.

    It’s almost release time for MORTAL DANGER, the first book in my new YA trilogy about bullies, beauty, prep school, and revenge. In case you haven’t seen it yet, the cover is absolutely amazing. I love the infinity symbol. In honor of the release of MORTAL DANGER (coming 8/5/14), I’m doing an Infinity Symbol Scavenger Hunt for the entire month of July.  Your mission will be to find and capture (take a picture of) any infinity symbols you can find or create.  The more creative you get, the more points you will earn.  Here’s an example of one I found in Vancouver, Canada.

    Continuing my look back at the Danvers series, I cannot help but pause, make that linger over one of my all-time-favorite heroes, Temple. I can’t even tell you how much I have crushed on this man. My one and only Book Boyfriend. And here is how Temple came to life: Sometimes when you are writing a book, a single character sneaks up on you and boldly demands that their story be told next. When I was writing One Night of Passion, I hadn’t really given much thought to the character of Temple, Colin’s rakish cousin. But from the moment he stepped on the page, larger than life…

    Okay, she had me at “Brit.” As in the title of her new book, Beauty and the Brit. Look at that cover! What’s not to love? Let me introduce you to one of my fellow Avon Authors, Lizbeth Selvig. 1) Did you have a nickname growing up? My family (started by a beloved auntie) called me LittleBit, which sounds hilarious to my mind now at my age and weight. Also, I met my husband at the “tender age” of fifteen, and from that day to this he calls me Lizard. 2) How do you pick the names of your Heroes/Heroines? Oddly enough naming a character is rarely difficult for me—it’s…

    Nearly here! Only another week until The Viscount Who Lived Down the Lane releases and so I thought I would tease, er, share with you a sneak peek inside.    Damaged and broken he might appear, but Pierson was still a man.    He pulled Louisa closer, hitching her up against him, so close, she teetered on the tips of her slippers and found her fingers winding into the lapels of his coat, if only to steady herself.    She might have toppled him over earlier, but now he was upending her world, and she couldn’t do anything but hold on for dear life.  …

I’m also open to cute, sweet names that may or may not be related to the color.  Just make sure they’re for a sweet, friendly little gal.   (In other words, no boy names! )

    My proof copy of Abduction of the Scots Queen arrived on schedule yesterday. I had such reluctance to open it in case I was going to be disappointed, but when dh opened the parcel, he was complimentary. I looked, and was pleasantly surprised. The glossy cover looks good. The text inside could maybe be a tad darker, but the size is OK.I didn't start reading it until today. In the first 33 pages there are 7 corrections to make. I thought it was going to be perfect! What worries me now is how many more there will be as I read on - and will it be easy to do them? At least three of the faults are…

    Trying to  make a cover for my book in Createspace had me tearing my hair for a day or two because I got absolutely nowhere. I had ignored Cover Creator because I'd read somewhere on the internet that CC was crap and produced lousy covers.So there I was trying to load a PDF file and believe me I'm no computer geek. Nothing worked. I decided it would have to be Cover Creator or nothing, and after all this work I wasn't prepared to give up.I turned to the Cover Creator Community files, and learned that there were many, many cover designs to choose from, and that everything would be…

    They say Createspace is easy - well, I beg to differ.The interior (ie the words of the story) was not a problem. All it takes is patience, an eagle eye and knowledge of the system. It will go easier next time, now I know what is required.But the covers - mon Dieu! I don't even understand the instructions! And Amazon instructions are always somewhat odd.I've found and downloaded the cover template. I have a front cover, a back cover and a spine waiting in Photoshop. How to transfer them to the Createspace template is the problem. I struggled all day yesterday and have nothing to show for it.

If I write dialogue with a French accent, I wanted  the character Lennox drop his aitches and I represented this as follows: 'there is nothing 'e will do for you.' Sometime Createspace formatted it perfectly and sometimes it ignored the apostrophe and just printed the letter e. There's probably a reason, but I haven't figured it out. After three tries I rewrote the phrase and did not use a dropped aitch!Otherwise it seems to be going well. I've removed a lot of unnecessary commas and corrected the occasional missing letter or word,…

    Wide-eyed, Hannah looked up at him. He reached out as if in a dream, tucked his fingers underneath her chin, and angled her mouth up to accept his. He brushed his lips softly against hers, wondering if she’d fight him. Her eyelids drifted closed and he let himself taste her. Gently, he kissed her, fighting the urge to push and plunder. She crept her hands up his body and flattened her palms against his chest, resting them there for a second before she firmly pushed him away.As her heavily fringed lids fluttered open, she said, “I don’t know you. You have no right to kiss me.”Cocking…

Something wasn’t right with Charlie. I should have known when the story started off so strongly in first person.  Why?  First person let’s the OTHER characters keep their secrets.  It becomes a gigantic mystery trying to ferret out those details, because I only hear…

I finished Mama C’s edits and sent them back in.  A few of them were a little tricky.  It seems like such a minor thing to make a character two years older, but there has to be a REASON.  I had to think about the whys and wherefores for a few days before I was actually ready to dig in and make the changes real. Then I filled out the cover art and blurb forms for Billionaire #2. And… then I started thinking about what’s next.  I have three books in progress that are vying for attention.  Plus three proposals…

Billionaire #2 was the latter.  I’ve been slowly whittling away at it for months.  But I never had the huge glorious word counts until the last two weeks.  For whatever reason, the book was a slow one.  It made for a few crazy big days, but I…

    15 Sep 2014 | 4:48 pm
    I thought this week we’d try something new…a blog hop for teasers. Mine’s below, then check out the links below, or add your own and join the hop! Sitting back on a wobbly chair in the café/bar near the department, I ran a finger around the top of my coffee mug. Troy and his partner were lost in their own thoughts. From my conversations with Troy I’d learned the threats they’d faced so far had been lower level stuff. A couple of vamps and werewolves and they had been few and far between. Scary enough if you weren’t used to them, but in the general scheme of things…

  • Jenna Ives: Can Artificial Intelligence Truly Offer Human Companionship?

    24 Oct 2014 | 4:00 am
    My latest book is a slightly futuristic erotic romance called Programmed To Protect, which revolves around very human police agent Leith Wyatt who falls in love with a Beautiful Doll sex robot named Ginger on a planet called Tau Cetus. Wyatt and Ginger truly love each other, each in their own way. And together, they manage to save their world from the threat of annihilation. Ironically, last week my hubby and I were watching a DVD of the movie Her with Joaquin Phoenix and Scarlett Johansson. Have you seen it?

Fans of her high-stakes, dangerously seductive world will find plenty of familiar faces and a wealth of new temptations and menace that quickly grow addictive…Dimon’s ability to weave together such strong, engaging plots is commendable, and her characters are surprising, complex and…

Alas, ’tis not to be :( Oh well, I’ll have to console myself with season two of The Witches of East End, which thankfully, begins in three weeks. And now I shall commence happy dancing.

    From the very beginning of my thoughts about the Green Mountain Series, I pictured ten kids growing up in a red barn in Vermont. That image was very vivid in my mind right from the start. I’ve had a few dour people infer that I went with ten kids in the new series to ensure I could write ten books. Well, that is and isn’t true at the same time. It istrue in the sense that I’m hoping to write about ten siblings who interest me.

    I’m working on edits for my February 2015 novella, When Good Earls Go Bad. It’s one of my zanier books; the heroine is exceedingly literal, and the hero is quite pragmatic. They share a love of books, toast, and honesty. Here’s a bit from when Annabelle and Matthew are walking home, and she’s taken his arm: Goodness, he was strong. Maybe he did do his own housework; bringing in firewood, beating rugs, moving furniture around, and other tasks would certainly build up his muscles. Perhaps there were different requirements for Earls of the Scottish persuasion so it was…

(Fortunately, it's 122/80... So all good there)I'm one of those that just calls for an antibiotic, and never goes in. But also did some comparison stats... According to the doctor, I'm 18 pounds down from where I was the last time I came in. On my scale, I've lose 23 pounds, but I'm not squawking over 5 pound difference in scales. Scales are never calibrated the same.  And it is likely, I was 5 pounds heavier…

After the briefest hesitation, Mario went ahead. Jason followed, alert for his friend’s first reaction, the unguarded one that would tell him what the other man really thought. The loft was not especially wide, but it ran the entire circumference of the club’s main play space. It was furnished with a variety of padded benches and a few armchairs where members could relax and watch the scenes playing out on the floor below. A waist-high wall of…

    13 Oct 2014 | 12:00 am
    It all started with a bag of dog food. A BIG bag of dog food. Fifty pounds of dog food. If you guessed I have several large dogs, you'd be correct. I was at Walmart when the husband called to say we were out of dog food. I don't usually make these purchases because fifty pounds is heavy and I'm a wimp. But this day I braved it to save an extra trip to town.Back in the pet aisle, the fifty pounders were stacked so that I had to wrestle a bag forward and then hoist it up and into my cart. To say I was making little progress is putting it mildly but I could do it. Eventually. Suddenly, a pair of…

    More than once lately I've complained that the "News" programs on TV report only bad news, never the good stuff.  When a person walks through a dark season in her life, as I have this year, finding the joy in life is often difficult.

In fact, I think I need a nice long visit with the goddess inside before I can even begin to contemplate serving my life’s purpose. Kate said my life’s purpose is service to others, and involves travel and public speaking. I only recently got over a lifetime fear of public speaking, so even the thought of such a lifes’ purpose terrifies and exhausts me.

He’s a laborer with his own landscaping business, so he comes by those muscles through hard work. The shirtless thing — this is my 8th book, it’s women’s fiction, and it’s the first time a character is bare-chested. But this fits Luke, too, since mowing lawns in the summer can be hot work and he’s been known to strip off his shirt on 90 degree days. You might…

    Yesterday, Al and I had a quiet adventure. We went into the world and explored our surroundings. We have been caught up in too much work, too little time together, and a couple of other things pulling at the fabric of who we are together. Just because we’ve been married for 29 years doesn’t mean we don’t have to work on our relationship. I think sometimes you need to do that even more the longer you are together. Sometimes you take each other for granted. Sometimes you need to fall in love all over again. One of the things we did when we were dating and then continued all…

Sometimes, it might even save a marriage, because when one person in the house takes over the main space without regard to the other, and the other just lets it be, resentment might simmer. Not mentioning any names:) But, if you’re older and your powers of concentration aren’t what they used to be and you have a guest room that hardly ever gets used…there may be an alternative to simmering resentment. Through the years, I have lost the ability to tune out sports.

    Terra Elan McVoy’s Criminal, Out in Paperback! Nikki’s life is far from perfect, but at least she has Dee. Her friends tell her that Dee is no good, but Nikki can’t imagine herself without him. He’s hot, he’s dangerous, he has her initials tattooed over his heart, and she loves him more than anything. There’s nothing Nikki wouldn’t do for Dee. Absolutely nothing. So when Dee pulls Nikki into a crime—a crime that ends in murder—Nikki tells herself that it’s all for true love. Nothing can break them apart. Not the police. Not the arrest that lands Nikki in jail. Not even…

    I posted on WordWranglers earlier this week about a few of the books that I adored growing up. Which got me thinking about the books (and authors) I adore now. Which made me ask myself this question: If I were stranded on a desert island and had the books of only three authors, which three would they be?I wondered if, perhaps, I could Stephen-King-inize myself and bring along the authors so they'd have to keep writing new books for me to read, a'la Misery....but that's kind of cheating. Plus, I don't want my favorite authors to think I'm stalkery or anything. I probably just killed that by…

Actually, it left everything to be desired so I'm still playing catch up.

Hopefully, he'll get a promotion and be year round next year.Many people complain about the sameness of driving through Kansas, but I love the wide open road.

FWIW: I think pumpkins should be stored and eaten, not massacred. I'm OK with painting them, though. :)Just now, the Ozarks are starting to turn into gorgeous fall color, which will flame across the hills. With a lot of nut trees, you can see wild turkeys along the road. They are not that pretty, but at least they are not the ugliest--turkey vultures.The leaves in the center are…

    Recently a reader commented on my hero’s name, Bayard Dommick, and it occurred to me that people might be interested in how I picked the names of my characters in this book, especially since many of you know how absolutely abominable I am at choosing character names.I am proud to say that while it was difficult to come up with character names in this book, each name has a sort of meaning behind them, a “story behind the name.”Real-life nobilityOne thing I absolutely did not want to do was name any characters after real-life nobility, especially if the peer was still alive. I think it…
  • Review: The Gentleman Rogue

    5 Oct 2014 | 3:32 am
    The Gentleman Rogue by Margaret McPhee My rating: 5 of 5 stars This is my first book from this author, who has become a new favorite for me. The writing was immediately engaging and compelling from the first chapter.The hero is eminently swoon worthy. In fact, I kind of pictured him as a bit like a younger Daniel Craig, including the tortured look behind his eyes. Great backstory and a strong, gritty, noble character.The heroine is also incredibly likable, a gentlewoman whose family has lost everything, strong and practical enough to get a job as a barmaid in Whitechapel despite her exalted…

    21 Oct 2014 | 8:11 am
    Art by Ali Spagnola I’ve been reading Panache Desai’s Discovering Your Soul Signature and wanted to share one of the meditations from the book: Imagine that your life can be portrayed on a canvas….When you look at this canvas, you’ll see see everything that’s been placed there. And most of it doesn’t originate from you…. As you’ve moved on through life, external labels have been superimposed on the canvas…. People have told us who we are, and this fills the canvas too. Now start pulling off those labels…. Peel away those limitations.

  • Turning History into Stories

    1 Oct 2014 | 12:25 pm
    I’m honored to have award-winning historical fiction writer Bobbi Miller as my guest today. She and I have several connections that make this a special opportunity for me. We’re both graduates of Vermont College (yay!) and both are historical fiction writers. My most recent release, Grace and the Guiltless, was set in the Wild West, so Bobbi’s talk of the frontier is close to my heart. Bobbi’s latest book is set in Gettysburg, and I lived a short distance from there when I was in high school. We’re both also busy with the booksignings, school visits, and…

    I have an iffy relationship with historical romance.  It has to have the perfect amount of angst and believability.  If not, it won’t hold my attention for longer than a couple of chapters.  If it does hold my attention, there is something cracky that makes me love the forbidden quality of romances played out so many years ago.  I’ve never tried Mary Balogh and this is book four in a series but I still thought I if I could find a new-to-me historical romance author I liked, then I could go back and read the first three books.
