Book Covers I Love and Miss

Book cover art can be evocative, intriguing, and delightful—or confusing, dull, and even off-putting. I’ve had covers on both ends of the spectrum. (Live and learn, fortunately.) Here was my very first book cover, from the fall of 2010. Looking at it now, nearly three years later, I still love the idea of it—the beautiful blues, the arched window, the exotic city outline, the streaks across

Scroogy McHumbug finds a wee bit of holiday spirit

Yes, I’ve probably earned that nickname. It’s not that I hate the holidays—it’s more like I’ve been indifferent to them. I’m self-employed, which just means I have freedom to work all the time. (No, it’s not always a good thing.) Weekends are often much like weekdays to me, and coming as I did from a small and not-that-religious family, holidays weren’t a big deal to me.

Wheeee, a new fantasy romance! SWORD AND LUTE (Alaia Chronicles)

Waaay back in February (heh), I released Swords and Scimitars, a historical fantasy short story about the origins of the realm of Kad. (When the immortal twin brothers Kismet and Taso fought over an enchanted sword, tragedy ensued for them both. The guilt of the fight drove Kismet into the realm of Kad, where he became its first sultan and redeemed himself through love. If you

Alpha males in fiction…and in the wild

My first published novel (Kismet’s Kiss, a two-time RWA Golden Heart ® finalist) features an alpha among alphas. Kuramos is the sultan of the desert realm of Kad. The descendent of

Coming Soon: The Source of Magic! New Cover & Update

I’m about a week away from finishing up my second-to-last round of edits on The Source of Magic. Hooray! I’m like the hugely pregnant, somewhat cranky woman who cannot WAIT to get this baby born and out. Fortunately, I’m still on target for a publication in the second half of March. I’ve been playing with a super-short blurb that can fit on a business card. Thanks

Okay, fine, here’s my publishing news. :)

I’m going Indie and I couldn’t be more thrilled! KISMET’S KISS will be coming out by the end of this month on the Amazon Kindle ebook platform, so the book will be available for any PC, Mac, smartphone, or iPad, as well as on a Kindle itself. (And psst…the third-generation Kindle will be coming out around the same time!) 2010 has been a bit odd for

Happiness is an e-reader!

That’s how I felt as soon as I bought my Kindle last year. I love that ebook sales are exploding and that ereaders are the next big thing. And let me tell you, I was never an ebook fan–until I had my Kindle and “got” the experience. I don’t buy paper novels anymore, unless I have zero choice and I *must* get the book–which is exceedingly
