My first book review

Hee Hee I just found this.

Three of Hearts got 3 cups from Coffee Times Romance. Here's some of what Regina had to say about it...

Three of Hearts is a well-written story about one of my favorite animals, the beaver. Leslie is heartwarming as the young woman who is trying to figure out what love really is. The twins have strong personalities, but they are a compliment to Leslie’s more nervous one. I would like to see more of these characters and would be interested in reading more about the werebeaver universe. If you enjoy shifter stories then this is one you will want to check out.

Want to read the full review? then click here.

I'm giddy!

NaNoWriMo & Sven

It's official I've completely lost it. I not only signed up to participate in NaNo again this year I just signed on to do the 70 days of sweat with Sven. Should be fun. Taking a page from fellow daughter Aline I'm going to make a schedule of when I'll be posting updates so let's see.

Monday will be my day because well Mondays are hell days....

Tuesday I'll post NaNo updates

Wednesday I know it's Wordless Wednesday so maybe I'll give that a try.

Thursday will be Sven updates

Friday will be quote day, I'll pull a phrase or two from my wip and post it for y'all.

Weekends belong to the family.

Happy Saturday & Blessed Be!

I stopped by Forbidden's website to window shop for new reading material. Out of curiosity I peak at the July bestsellers and Three of Hearts is number 2. How cool is that?

Now I'm off to write more, my archaeologist Beth just discovered magic is real.....

Updates, Finish the Damn Book and everything else

Well, here it is mid August and I've finally got a moment to post an update. I have to apologize for the lagtime between posts, we had family in town for the past three weeks and we've been exploring a decent part Alaska. I've got some amazing shots of glaciers and wildlife.

On the FTDB front I'm fairly certain I met my goal of 25k for The Second Time Around, you know I still don't like that title. Most of the wip is in my spiral so the exact word count is still a mystery but I've got just over 7k typed in and over half the spiral to go. Hopefully by the end of next week it'll all be typed up. Can't wait for school to start, I always have more time to write when the boy is in school.

As I type up Second I've gone back to the polar bear shifter. Not certain how much from the previous wip will survive but now that I've walked on a glacier in the rain I've gotten some new ideas that the muse seems to be enjoying.

The receipt contest ended. Congrats to Isaac for winning! He should be receiving his goody box shortly.

I've titled August the month of catch-ups and school prep. Hopefully by months end I'll have at least one story ready for submission if not two. 'Course then it's September which is NaNo prep month.

Happy Friday!

8July Update

(Cross posted on DoC yahoo group)

This is from yesterday, I write late at night after the munchkins
have gone to bed. Can't focus otherwise, dd is on a 'mommy I want
you' phase which means she's in my lap anytime I'm sitting down and
we've all seen my typing when she does that, LOL.

Let's see I'm at a total of 1,279 words. Not a bad start for me
really. It should be noted I write out of order so this is actually
the middle of the book but the first scene I wrote(raw and unedited):

Beth pulled his shirt from his pants and slid her hands up his toned
abs. His chest was perfect. She'd forgotten how amazing it felt to
touch him. He started unbuttoning her blouse, while leaving a trail
of kisses down her neck to her breasts. He sat up long enough to pull
his shirt over his head. Her hands fumbled with his belt as he
returned his attention to her breasts.

"Alisha." he whispered.

She froze then pushed him away, slowly she met his eyes. He stared at
her a confused look on his face.

"Beth." The flash of disappointment in his eyes squeezed her heart

"Yes that's right Beth." She replied. She stood and left the room
buttoning her blouse as she walked.

Until Next Time.....

July is Finish the Damn Book Month


It's Finish the Damn Book (FTDB) month on the Daughters of Circe Yahoo Group. I've selected my contemporary romance 'The Second Time Around' (wt) for the month's madness. I've also placed a progress meter over there on the side so I can stay honest with myself. I've got a bit of a challege ahead as it's already day 8 and I've only written a touch over 1k. But hey that's what challenges are for right?

The other Daughters are participating and we all will be posting progress reports as well as little teasers from our books.

Happy Reading and Happy Sunday!

Three of Hearts!

Forbidden has it up! Here's the link

Don't forget our chat at the Romance Studio tonight 9pm EST:

Don't forget to send me an email with your receipt.

An Excerpt:
Leslie sighed and looked through the mass of people around her. The Polaroid her mother had given her in one hand, she searched for Sharon and Charles Monte, who were to meet her. As she approached the luggage carousel, she spotted them. Just then, the little warning alarm went off and she lost them again as people jumped forward to claim their bags. Stifling a curse, she turned to grab her bags. All three pieces of her luggage set had been packed and checked for her.

Moments later, a hand touched her elbow. Spinning around, Leslie found herself face to face with the most gorgeous set of brown eyes she had ever seen. A blend of hues from the darkest fudge to golden amber, they stared down at her with a hint of mischief.

"Let me help you with those."

"Uh…." Her mouth refused to work, her mind too busy taking in the man before her.

He reminded her of the guy from the Highlander television series. Something inside of her lurched as she continued to stare at him. Inner voice singing joyfully, the force pushing her north lessoned to a small tug. It couldn't be that simple, could it?

Breaking eye contact, Leslie took in the rest of him. He was taller than her, she guessed nearly six feet. Those gorgeous eyes were set in a lightly tanned face. His full lips were spread in a wide grin that said he knew he was being examined and enjoying every minute of it, and his dark brown hair had recently been shaved into a high and tight crew cut.

The joyful song singing inside her faltered as she met his eyes a second time. Something was missing, incomplete. No, it isn't going to be that easy. Yet a small part of her soul continued to scream at her to wrap herself around this man and claim him as hers.

"Thanks." She spotted Sharon and Charles over his shoulder. "Here come my friends now."

"Sebastian!" Sharon called, waving her hand, a satisfied smile on her lips.

Leslie felt like sinking through the floor, and Sebastian's grin widened as he grabbed two of her three bags.

Happy Reading and Blessed Be!

26 days until Three of Hearts is released!!!!!!!!!!!!

I honestly didn't mean to disappear for so long. But you know what they say about best laid plans. I've been batting several new ideas around and jotting them down in my notebook while running all over the place trying to get things accomplished.

I've also began the countdown for the release of ToH, obviously LOL. I can't wait!!!

The other big news of the week is on Thursday I turn the big 30. It's funny I remember my husband being all upset when he turned 30 and I feel jazzed at everything I've accomplished so far in life. The list I made back when I was a teen of all the things I wanted to do by the time I hit this age has got lots of little checkmarks next to items. I didn't do everything. I still need to get to Europe and a couple of others but the biggies are there...marriage, kids, selling a's all good. What's still on this list will be added to the 50 list. If I don't get to Europe by them I'm gonna be upset! LOL well not totally but it will be a bummer. So much history I want to see.

Well it's time I get back to the grind, character sheets to complete and an outline to rework on a wip that's been getting more and more impatient. I'll try to make it back and post a new Thursday Thirteen. Until then.......

Happy Monday and Blessed Be!!

13 books I recently finished,Edition #3

Thirteen Things about Elena Croft

1. Protector of the Flight Book 3 The Summoning Series by Robin D Owens (While I liked this one I didn’t enjoy it as much as the first two in the series.)
2. The Firebird Deception Book 2 Strongbox Chronicles by Cate Dermody (An intense seat of your pants story. Need to dig book 3 out of my TBR pile.)
3. Fortune's Fool Book 3 500 Kingdoms by Mercedes Lackey. (An interesting one, it felt really different from the first two but I still enjoyed it. Misty can't go wrong.)
4. Mistral's Kiss Book 5 Merry Gentry Series by Laurell K Hamilton (Um wow! The men the sex the plot can't wait for the next one which by the title centers on Frost oh boy! oh boy!)
5. Destiny Book One Rogue Angel by Alex Archer (I adore Annja I simply couldn't put the book down. Gotta go buy the rest on pay day.)
6. Hidden Sanctuary book 5 The Madonna Keys by Sharron McClellan. (Didn't like this one as much as the others, the hero just bothered me.)
7. Veiled Legacy book 6 The Madonna Keys by Jenna Mills (I love Jenna's writing.)
8. Seventh Key Book 7 The Madonna Keys by Evelyn Vaughn (What a great wrap up for an amazing series!)
9. Undead and Unwed book 1 The Undead Series by Mary Janice Dickenson (I've read this series out of order. It's nice to finally see how it began.)
10. A Dangerous Man by Candace Camp (I don't usually read historicals but I just adore Candace's books she got a great voice.)
11. Sugar and Spice by Lynette Kent (A short little audible book I listened to one day while doing dishes, very cute.)
12. Innocent in Death Book 23 (I think) In Death Series by J.D. Robb (It's Dallas so of course I loved it, although this killer was a bit more unnerving than the previous ones)
13. Dhampir Book 1 The Noble Dead Saga by Barb & J.C. Hendee (Still reading this but it's interesting. Who could resist picking up a book with a review calling it a mix of LOTR and Buffy?)

13 memorable comments from Stargates SG-1 & Atlantis Edition #2

Thirteen Things about Elena Croft

Weir: Rodney… Amazing.
McKay: Well, it was a group effort.
Sheppard: Good old Plan D. Works every time.
Season 3, Episode 51 The Return Part 2

2. Daniel: I don't know, name magic is common in most mythologies. To know something's secret name is to steal its power.
Mitchell: So what are we supposed to do, just start guessing?
Vala: Darryl the dragon.
Mitchell: How bout Smokey?
Teal'c: Perhaps, Puff.
Season 10, Episode 205 The Quest Part 2

3. Sheppard: I managed to latch onto the hull of the hive before we went into hyperspace.
Ronon: Nice move.
Sheppard: Saw it in a movie once.
Season 3 Episode 41 No Man's Land (Who hasn't wanted to be Han Solo?)

4. Daniel: (To Vala) I'm sure if there is a monster down here, it's gonna be much more scared of you than you are of it. Especially once it gets to know you. Season 9 Episode 175 Avalon part 1 (Gotta love the chemistry between these two. It makes for some great barbs!)

5. Weir(to Beckett): Your theory of the Wraith evolving after the Ancients arrived in Pegasus galaxy ...
McKay: Oh, you're kidding me!
Zelenka: Pay up.
Season 1 Episode 18 The Gift (HeeHee Rodney lost a bet)

6. Daniel: Why did they send you to this galaxy in the first place?
Prior: We are beacons on the road to enlightenment.
Mitchell: No, you’re dark side intergalactic encyclopedia salesmen. Unfortunately the home-office hasn’t been quite up front with you.
Daniel: Nice work on the metaphor.
Mitchell: Thank you, Daniel. Season 9 Episode 185 The 4th Horseman part 2 (Couldn't resist this one by Mitchell. The snarky comments the two were throwing back and forth in the opening scenes were hilarious.)

7. McKay: I'm itchy. I'm itchy all over. This is exactly what happened when I toked pot once in college!
Season 2 Episode 30 The Lost Boys (Rodney high, now there's something I would pay to see!)

8. Daniel: Jack, it's not that I mind rejoining SG-1, exploring the galaxy, meeting new cultures, jeopardy, saving the world, that kind of thing. (pause) I get paid for this, right? Season 7 Episode 134 Homecoming (Let's face it, we all at some point wondered just how much hazard pay these guys were getting. Nice to see they question it too.)

9.Sheppard: How you feelin'?
McKay: (not clearly) I can't feel anything, I can't talk.
Sheppard: You can't talk either.
McKay: (again not clearly) That's what I said.
Season 1 Episode 5 Suspicion

10. Jack: You know the worst part about this? Every time we loop Daniel asks me a question and...I wasn't listening the first time!
Season 4 Episode 72 Window of Opportunity (LOL I kinda want to know what Daniel was asking him too.)

11. Weir: Do you know where you are?
Michael: I don’t even know who I am!
Season 2 Episode 38 Michael (Aska stupid question.....)

12.Jack: (hitting golfballs through the Stargate) How far is Alaris, anyway?
Teal'c: Several billion miles, O'Neill.
Jack: That's gotta be a record.
Season 4 Episode 72 Window of Opportunity (It's my favorite episode and they were wearing golf outfits in the scene HILARIOUS!)

13. Jack: Any cash?
Lt. Hammond: Uh, yeah... I might have some, uh...
Jack: (grabbing it out of his hand) That's good. I'll pay you back, with interest.
(later, in 1999)
Gen Hammond: Oh, by the way, Colonel...with interest you owe me $539.50.
Season 2 Episode 43 1969 (hee hee you just knew he was waiting the whole time to say that.)

Character Conversations

One of my favorite characters is a young apprentice Witch named Madeline. She's one of the heroines in my fantasy romance Magic Awry. Recently, I had to give her some rather unpleasant news. I thought those of you familar with Maddy would like to see what she's like when she's REALLY angry......

There really is no good way to start this conversation, I think watching Madeline slowly turn the pages in her spell book. Her mouth silently forming the words as she reads them. Best to do it quickly then.

"Um Maddy how attached to Hayden are you?" I ask getting ready to run for the door should she reach for her wand.

"I think I love him you know that." She replies barely looking up from her spell book.

So far so good.

"Well you see something's happened." I say, pausing when she swiftly focuses her attention on me.

"What happened." I don't really like the tone of warning in her voice and I ease a bit closer to the door of her litttle cottage.

"Well, he and Beau were going up against those nasty little minions of Duke Mortens and, well, things took an unexpected turn." I all but whisper this last part and slowly ease a hand behind me, wrapping it around the door knob.

"Un-ex-pect-ed?" Madeline saids slowly expanding the word.

"Yeah you see he entered a dual with Mortens house wizard."

"You said Mortens minions." Madeline interrupts suddenly. "You never said anything about the wizard."

"Oh uh, well I think of him as one of the minions." I stumble over the words, damn she's right he's not a freaking minion.

"So this dual...."

"He lost." I say so softly the words are barely audible.

"He lost," she repeats her pretty face paling, fear starting to show in her eyes. "What were the boundaries of this dual."

"Death." the word comes out as a squeak.

Madeline's face is beyond sheet white, her eyes go from fearful to rage in a heart beat. Her wand is suddenly in her hand.

"Oh shit!" I think, maybe I say it who knows but damn she's scary when she's pissed. I don't want her to go bad on me. Magic has already gotten more complicated than I originally intended but Maddy going bad would totally ruin the story.....or maybe not.

My mind leaps at the idea my muse is suddenly dangling before it, completely forgetting the pissed off witch/sorceress in front of me. Damn you muse and your shoddy timing.

"You. Will. Rewrite. The. Scene." she says slowly, each word costing her a bit of control.

I can see her magic swirling around her. The Power hovering slightly behind her, waiting to see if she'll fry the poor storyteller before her. I open my mouth to speak and nothing comes out. I try several more times and only succeed in making myself look like a fish gasping for air. Finally I nod my head and duck out the door behind me. A random thought fills my head and I hate to do it, she's still pissed for goodness sake but I have to ask it.

Barely peaking my head back inside I ask. "And if I can't?"

"This tale goes no further until you find a way to fix the idiocy you have written." A cold voice whispers from the now darkened room.

Oh, yeah she's mad and she means it.

She'd make a great evil sorceress though.... a voice whispers from behind me.

"Shut up!" I mutter to my errant muse.

More conversations to come.....

I'm ba'ack and I've got a cover!!

Hello out there in internet land! I'm in Alaska and it is sooooooo cold. The move is finally over and now all I got to do is unpack. LOL that should only take a couple of years, j/k I think. But I had a very pleasant surprise waiting for me in my email. My cover is here. I love it! It's amazing! And here it is......

Once the Elders sent her off to Canada to find her mate, Leslie Maple realizes life wasn't so hot out in Phoenix. With nothing but a photo, she heads to Vancouver where she meets the two most gorgeous men she'd ever seen, identical twins Sebastian and Castor Belvedere. But, more intriguing is the feelings they invoke in her, the call she just can't seem to resist.

Aunt Sharon has a nasty habit of playing matchmaker, but Sebastian and Castor Belvedere are through playing along. But Aunt Sharon is an old pro at the matchmaking game and plays her wild card asking them to do her a favor by accompanying her to the airport to pick up her latest mate choice. Unfortunately, for them this time Aunt Sharon may be right. But whom does this mate belong to?

Wet & Wild is a series of beaver shifter stories. Be sure to check out the other two books.
Wet & Wild: Lifemates by Aline de Chevigny
Wet & Wild Courting Damnation by Piper Evyns

Isn't it pretty? This is so exciting!! It makes the whole I've sold my story that much more real.

A Contest: How many Ebooks will fit?

As a reader I love contest as they present me with a chance to get neat stuff from my favorite authors. As a new author I haven't the foggiest on what is and isn't a good contest to throw. Therefore, I've decided to hold a guessing game contest. With the upcoming move I'm faced with the scary knowledge that all my books are going to be packed up and shipped to Alaska where I won't get to see them again until early March **knock on wood**. Thankfully technology is such that I won't be without reading material. THANK YOU GODS FOR EBOOKS!

Here's the contest: I've got a 1gb memory card for my Palm Pilot. How many books do you think I can fit on it? Post your guesses and whoever gets the closest will get a surprise.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yeah I know I'm four days late, but I've been busy working and planning our move. I'll be leaving for Alaska sometime in February. It'll all depend on when I get my passport and then onto Anchorage I go.

I've decided to do a book list over there on the right. Last year, I participated in a reading challenge and I really enjoyed it. I'm gonna keep it simple and do a star system, so original I know, 1-5 stars. 1 meaning gods awful and 5 being amazing.

Writing wise I'm having a great time. I've started a new shifter story, this one stars polar bear shifters. My h is a peach of a girl and the H is a total ass that I'm going to have a blast beating the crap out. I'm on track for getting Magic done this year. I'm hoping it will be long enough to send out to a print publisher. Witches has been put on hold as it took an unexpected turn that requires more research.
