July 2012 Newsletter


It’s been a busy couple of months. Between attending conferences, editing and writing, I’ve been a busy bee. But I think you’ll enjoy the results. <g>

In April I attended the Romantic Times Conference in Chicago, a town with amazing history. I even went on a ghost tour. Dang! It was cold, but I wouldn’t have missed it for anything. Later in the month I attended the Desert Dreams Conference right here in my home town. My local Romance Writers’ of America chapter hosts a writer’s conference every other year. You’ll have to join us in 2014.

May was a month of writing and editing (as if I don’t do that every month — LOL). I received my rights back on seven of my previously published books. I’ve contracted news covers that I’m so proud of and made changes to the stories I hope you’ll like. I believe my last newsletter announced the re-release of Forbidden Fruit, which had been part of the Ecstasy series. I have excluded Forbidden Fruit from this series and given it its own series name — Ecstasy Shorts. Hopefully, I’ll be able to add to this anthology later in the year. I also re-released Dead Awakening for those of you who love the paranormal, vampires, and Tarot card readers.

June started off with attending the AZ Dreamin’ Conference, a reader’s haven set here in Arizona. I had a great time meeting new readers. Then it was back to work. I’ve most recently re-released Destiny’s Touch, Echoes From Heaven, and A Very Faery Christmas. Look for The Charade, the second book in the Ecstasy series, later this summer.

Now let’s get down to the good stuff happening in July.


For three days, July 17, 18, and 19, ECHOES FROM HEAVEN will be offered free at Amazon.

An angel in his bed… A devil in his arms.

Celena, a Christmas angel, has been given the devil of an assignment–to teach Lon Townsend how to love again. But the man is bad to the bone–a playboy to the nth degree–with no desire to change his wicked ways. Not to mention he makes her incorporeal body burn with desire, which is wrong on so many levels.

The redhead beauty in Lon’s bed is surely the present his friends promised. When she explains she’s been sent down from Heaven to find him a mate, he knows she must be a fantastic actress or certifiably insam=ne, but she’s the sexiest little nut he’s ever seen. He can’t keep his mind or hands off her.

The results?

Well, let’s just say the boats in Whispering Cove start rockin’.
