My thanks to each of you for helping to make that dream come true!

I’m excited to be meeting a number of you at the upcoming RomCon Reader Weekend in Denver September 25-27. I’ve been putting my reader swag together (hint: it smells soooo good) and we’re going to have a GREAT time. Come sit at my table for the Reader Luncheon! I’m going to be giving my table a sneak peak at Princess Hellion, my upcoming novel in the Alaia Chronicles series. 😀

Speaking of Alaia Chronicles, there’s now an e-bundle of Swords and Scimitars + Sword and Lute. If you haven’t read those tales yet, check it out:

Are you craving more fantasy romance? Besides my aforementioned Princess Hellion (which shall be awesome 😀 ), there’s a fun new Facebook group, Fantasy Romance Fanatics. Come chat about your favorite books and find new ones to love with other readers and authors of magically fantastic romance!

COLORADO WILDLIFE

If you haven’t yet friended me on Facebook, you don’t know the ongoing saga of Stella, the mustang-born mare I’ve been leasing since the beginning of August. My nicknames for her have ranged from Stellar to Ms. Piggy to World-Class Butthead. Join me on FB to read more.

As a bonus, here’s the marmot who lives in the wood pile under the stairs at the cabin. Yes, that’s an actual marmot, not an extraordinarily fat squirrel.


Next to a statue of an owl. Yes, just a statue. Even I do a double-take when I see it.

Kismet's Kiss: A Fantasy Romance
