Are you on tsu?

I try to limit myself as far as social media sites. I learned from Yahoo email groups that I just get overwhelmed by too many and end up actually participating in none. Twitter still turns my brain upside down too. While I do like Facebook, it's become overly restrictive as far as our own content, while pushing ads and their content. Apparently, FB will tighten the screws even more in 2015. Here's a better explanation.

So when someone mentioned tsu, I thought I'd check it out. Seems pretty similar to FB, so I set up a page. We'll see how it goes. If you're over there, find me and friend me, won't you?

I'm beyond thrilled that Bitten by Romance has rated both Goddess, Inflamed and Goddess, Spellbound as 5 star Hot Picks! These reviews really blew me away:

For Goddess, Inflamed:

I am so in love with this series.  I love the characters and the way the various other entities interact with them.  They are all brought into the modern world and to life with such amazing personalities and motivations.  


There were lots of surprises in this book as her lineage is slowly revealed.  I loved exploring all the skeletons in the closet of Hades' and Persephone's family.  There are quite a few of them, and we all love a good bit of juicy gossip.  The end was a fantastic adventure with just enough action to get my heart racing paired with some wonderful moments of true love.
The characters in the series are so real, I almost expect to run into them on the street some day.  It just seems natural that they are a part of the "real world" and we just don't know it yet.

For Goddess, Spellbound

First off, I have to admit to being very excited to see an Egyptian mythology story.  Good ones are very hard to find and this one was definitely a good one.  I love how Cate Masters takes the stories, both well-known and more obscure, and weaves them into her reality.  The gods, goddesses, and legends really come to life in the book and they will take over your world while you are reading.

Sandy is a fantastic character.  I loved her passion for history, her love of cats (I wish I could have seven), and her quirky personality were spot on for me.  Her journey from slightly insecure (but not overly so) museum curator to powerful goddess totally sure of herself was very subtle.  At one point I remember wondering when it happened.  But it was one of those things that changed just a little bit - but constantly - and then suddenly you realize you have something new and exciting
 Iker was all stiff formality - which is exactly what I picture an old mummy would act like.  I enjoyed watching him interact with the modern world, trying to adapt to its "craziness".  He was quite a mystery at times, keeping a lot of his emotions and thoughts hidden from the world.  But I still couldn't help but love him.
As Sandy embraces her destiny and heritage, she performs a ritual that was just beyond incredibly written that it totally blew my mind.  You will feel like you are there fighting and discovering right along with her the whole way.
Can you tell I love her writing?



I'm always grateful to reviewers when they take the time to read my work, but reviews like these are what keep me pumped about writing.

The first few chapters of Goddess, Spellbound are on Wattpad, if you'd like to read them.

Because of its explicit nature, only the first chapter of Goddess, Inflamed is on Wattpad, but I'd love for you to check it out. I'd be especially grateful for comments!

Lastly, I'm very excited that my short story, A Hard Day's Knight, is part of Decadent's new 1NS collection - 186,000 words and 17 authors for only 99 cents!

Casting Call: Rock My World

As this is a fairly short story, there are only two characters in this Casting Call.

Cynthia Winterspoon's picking up the pieces after a messy split from her husband. At 37, she's reluctant to start over, and ready to fight for the business she's built from scratch.

Thoughtful and kind, she's not prepared for a new guy in her life. Rex Reynolds is nothing like the rock star persona he projects, but a motorcycle accident leaves them both reeling.

Scarlett Johannson would be perfect as Cyn.

Rex Reynolds, rock god and general hot mess, thinks his life is pretty much figured out. Until a motorcycle accident robs him of his memory - except for two things. His love of music, and the girl he loves. But the girl, Cyn, doesn't seem to remember him.

Richard Armitage was always Rex.

You can find out more about Rock My World here.

Or read the first chapter on Wattpad.
