I have had two wonderful reviews this week from The Romance Studio
One was for "Love Thy Master" and the other was for "A Song for My Warrior" both were 5 out of 5. It is always wonderful to receive a good review of my books, but to get two with such high praises in the same week is amazing. Plus on top of this I have received several emails from readers telling me how much they enjoy my books, which is always fantastic to hear.

To tell you the truth I really needed a week like this. It has rejuvenated my spirit.
I have been buried under of pile of promo stuff and it has seemed it’s has been one problem after another getting my new book released. There is going to be a delay in getting the print book out, which is just the newest problem. On top of all of this my oldest son gets diagnosed with Mononucleosis. At least I know why he has been so tired and not himself lately. I hope it clears up fast and with no complications. When I was a teenager I got Mononucleosis and it took almost a year for me to recovery from it. I really hope my son recovers much quicker than that.

So, yeah a week like this is just what I needed to catch my breath :)

Those last three post were my attempted to read excerpts from my soon to be released novel "Master Nikola" I don't think it's too bad for my first attempt at this. I kept moving the microphone away from me as I read and I thought I read a little too fast at times.

The more I do this I am sure the better I will be at it :)
It's me describing this scene

This is from the second part of “Master Nikolai” This scene is from the erotic shiver ‘His Eyes Wide Opened” which is included in the book “Master Nikolai”

This scene is Jacob meeting Leon for the first time.

This is from the first part of “Master Nikolai” This scene is from the erotic shiver “Curiosity Seduced the Woman” which is included in the book “Master Nikolai”

This scene is Rose fantasizing about Nikolai

Today I get to write. I want to start work on the Erotic Shiver “Surrender” I have been so busy lining up promo stuff last week, getting ready for the release of “Master Nikolai” The release date is set for Oct 23 of course that is provided everything goes smoothly. If not then the book will be released a few days later. I still have a ton of promo work to do. But I really need to write.

You may have noticed the avatars on my website. I thought this was a fun idea. I got these on the sitepal website. I have one that welcomes you to my website, one on the erotic shiver page, one on the buy book page and one on the about me page. The one on the about me page is my actual voice, though I think I will redo that one. I was talking a little to fast I think.

I am also trying to get a pod cast ready. I am not the most technological adept person out there so it always takes a little while to figure out how things work.

Now I better get to work. I want to spend the morning writing and then work on the promo stuff more.

I have started to compile a mailing list. If you wish to be added to my mailing list send an email to with your email and mailing address. I will send announcements when new books are released and are available for sale. Plus I am putting a print catalog together for upcoming trade shows etc. You can opt out at anytime if you no longer wish to receive emails or mailings.

I also have a My Space page I started this so that I could learn more about you. I would love a chance to get to know more about my readers.

This weekend I had an impulse to change my writing (office) room. My little office isn’t that big and this room has been the same way since we moved here. And let me tell you this room was really ugly and didn’t really suit my taste at all. So, I went out to Lowes and bought some midnight blue (one of my favorite colors) paint. The ceiling in this room is an ugly drop ceiling, the kind that is found in schools, not the decorative kind. This was a bit of a problem. I really know little about putting up a new ceiling and my husband is the king of procrastination. By time he got around to putting a new ceiling up for me it would probably be this time next year. And he refuses to let me hire someone to help me out with it. So, I was stuck with this ugly drop ceiling. Then an idea came to me. I hurried down to the fabric store and bought some nice black cloth, this color would match the black bookshelf I have in my office. My son helped me put the cloth up on the ceiling to cover that nasty drop ceiling; at least this would be a temporary fix until my husband put the new ceiling up. And to my surprise it looks really good. I feel like I am in an exotic tent :) The midnight blue on the walls really shows off my framed book covers. The only thing I need now is a nice new desk. I know what Christmas present I will be asking my husband for, lol.

I keep having these recurring dreams of either someone is chasing me or that I have to escape from somewhere. These dreams have increased in intensity throughout this last year. Normally, my dreams are rather bizarre anyways, but I have harvested a few really good storylines and characters from these dreams. I keep a notebook next to my bed so I can write these dreams down.

The chasing and escape dreams apparently mean I am either afraid of something or that I need a change in my life. Of course each book about dream interpretation always states something different. I am a firm believer that our dreams are our subconscious mind trying to tell us something. There are some people who believe that our dreams are simply the time our minds are free to go down any mental road.

I am lucky that I do at least remember some of my dreams. Now if only those darn chasing and escape dreams would only stop. I swear I get more exercise in my dreams than I do when I am awake, lol
