February Giveaway... It's My Birthday!

Since my birthday is in February, I wanted to add to my monthly giveaway that I do for new and current subscribers of my New Releases and Promo Information Only newsletter. I'll admit, writing on a new dragon shifter story has made me way more aware of all the amazing dragon goodies around, so when I saw this adorable sparkly pink dragon, I just couldn't resist. I decided he (she?) was the perfect giveaway prize. And to make it even more special, I'm also including a beautiful snowflake ornament, a double dragon metal bookmark, a truly unique pink dragon key ring (also has a purse/belt clip on it), a Beyond the Shadows chocolate spoon and pink strawberry lip gloss made by Kelli's Kollectibles, a $20 Amazon Gift Card, and ebook copies of five of my books.

So, what do you have to do to enter this giveaway? The only requirement is that you either sign up or are already a subscriber of my New Release and Promo Only Newsletter. That's it. Now, to get extra bonus entries, there are other things you can do, and you'll find those on the page that you are linked to either once you sign up for my newsletter (new subscribers) or in the current newsletter that went out on the 1st (current subscribers).

Current subscribers, if you can't find your newsletter, check your spam. It went out from If you still can't find it, let me know. You may email me at that same email address.

I think that's it, for now! If you haven't signed up for my newsletter yet and want to for your chance to win this (and future) giveaways, here's the link:

As I always like to say, because it truly is all of you that make it possible, thank you so much for being a part of my dream.

Stoking the Flames with On Wings of Time

I am extremely pleased to announce that I have
been included as one of the authors in the
Stoking the Flames: 13 Tales of Dragons, Destiny & Desire 
Multi-Author Paranormal Romance Box Set. The box set will be released March 2017. 

And today, I get to reveal my individual cover and share some teasers and tidbits!

Six hundred years lay between the man with a dragon’s soul and the only woman who could unlock his powers. When an impossible encounter hurls them through time, he has six days to not only prepare for the battle on the horizon, but to win her heart. Fate’s carefully woven web is about to be tested by will, a kiss, and the flip of a coin.

On Wings of Time is the first book to be released in my new series: The Lochlainn Guardians. Who are these guardians? They are men of valor infused with the essence of the noble dragons of Kedan. Their one goal: to protect the people from a fate worse than death – their enslavement by the Dubhaganthe dark dragons who wanted to rule and were determined to stop at nothing to get what they wanted. Unfortunately, the Dubhagan had driven the Kedan Dragons to the point of extinction and now Fate was having to step in to bring together the last of the Guardians and their matesthe women who could unlock their powers otherwise the Kedan Dragons would be lost, leaving the world at the mercy of the Dubhagan. The only problem… they were scattered throughout time. 

I hope you like that premise. Each book will be a complete story with the hero and heroine getting their Happily Ever After, though there will be an unanswered thread that weaves through the entire series, being answered bit by bit as we go along, until the very end. So, no cliff hangers, but a single tidbit to hopefully pull you into the next story. 

And now for the cover....

Available first in the
Stoking the Flames multi-author box set.
Available now for pre-order:


Surrender to the Desire…
Embrace your Destiny…
Soar with the Dragons…
Stoke the flames that 13 of your favorite NY Times, USA Today and International Bestselling authors have ignited with their fiery tales of the scorching passion that erupts when a dragon is united with their soul-mate

 If you'd like to be a part of the Multi-Author Box Set Release Blitz,
please follow this link and sign up. We'd LOVE to have you!
So much fun and so many prize opportunities will be coming your way!!!

There will be continual giveaways on the Stoking the Flames Facebook Page so be sure to LIKE the page and check back there often. Here's the link for the page:

All That Bling!

At my "day job" I get to create book covers, and one of the authors I work with is Julia Mills. If you haven't heard of Julia *gasp*, she's a USA Today and New York Times bestselling author who is also one of the top ranked paranormal romance authors on Amazon. You'll definitely want to check her out and I can't think of a better way than to join her on Sept. 20 over on Facebook for the Release Party of Roman: Fury of Her King.

This party, hosted by the amazing Kelli Smith of Totally Talented Promotions, is guaranteed to be a wild few hours with so much interaction, fun, and bling. Whether you win at any of the many giveaway chances you'll have during the event or not, it will still knock your socks off!

In the meantime, you can check out Julia on Amazon (she's on other platforms as well) and maybe pre-order your copy of Roman while you're there.

She thought it was a chance meeting… He knew it was Destiny. Her dreams were coming true… His future was within his grasp.

Life turns on a dime. Things can change in the blink of an eye. Now, her future is in his hands and the one she thought was her friend is holding the gun. Can he save her in time? Will he defy the law of Zeus?

More than blood is on the line… this fight is for his very existence.

It Started With A Challenge

My novel, Dance with the Enemy, is currently $0.99 over on Amazon. But that's not what this post is about. Today, when I logged in on Facebook, it had a memory at the top like it often does. This particular memory had to do with a certain short story I'd written for a writer's blog called Clever Fiction. What is that, you ask? It's a blog that offers a prompt-based challenge. Currently, you post the story on your own blog and let them know. They then put up a link to your story on their blog to help push traffic your way. It's a great idea and, without them, I may never have written that first story that has now led to 2.3 novels (Book 3 is in the works), a couple of novelettes, and more understanding about positioning myself as an author. Has it allowed me to quit my day job? No, but it may just inspire you and give you that little push, like it did for me. Participating in the challenges helped me to not only "create product", but to also get into the habit of setting aside writing time. It also increased my exposure as more people saw and read my work. 

So, whether you're a reader looking for something new to read, or a writer looking for inspiration, be sure to check out Clever Fiction. The current challenge -- Sailboat - Cove - Goldmine -- should be completed by Friday, Sept. 30. A new challenge will be posted sometime after that. 

An amazing journey begins with a first step, just like a single word on a page can be the beginnings of a whole, new fictional world. Read. Write. Enjoy!
