Losing Time

Where did February go?  It’s March Madness time already?  Once again, I have lost time. When I’m writing, especially when I’m trying to finish something, I seem to go into a deep dark cave.  Recently I was finishing up a new manuscript so I could submit it to a publisher.  Then Samhain returned my titles.  Unfortunately, they closed their doors as of March 1, so my focus then turned to getting those books back out into the marketplace.  I think I’ve got Lexie and Maxie back out there for sale now.  Yet once again, February has disappeared without me seeing it.  I’m only now emerging from the cave.

Does this happen to you when you get immersed into a project?  Or am I entering some weird time warp?

High School Reunion Release Day!

High School Reunion

Genre: Contemporary, humorous erotica
Release: Jan. 25, 2017

Tara Hanson is having a crisis – a common crisis for a twenty-eight year old woman, but a crisis nonetheless. Her problem? Her ten-year high school reunion is approaching fast, and she’s not ready. It’s shallow, she knows, but she wants to set her old classmates on their ears. She’s got a good job, but she needs the whole package if she’s going to succeed. That would, of course, include an awesome car, a killer body, and a mouthwatering hunk on her arm. An eventful visit to the gym shows her that she may be able to get two birds with one stone. Personal trainer Jake Logan is a spine-tingling, knee-weakening, hunk of burning love. She just has to find a way to convince him to be on her arm when the boasting at the reunion begins!

What are you reading these days?

What kind of books are grabbing your attention right now? I feel like I’m in reading void. Usually there’s some big phenomenon out there.  Most recently, it was The Girl on the Train. Before that, it was The Girl with the Dragon TattooThe Hunger GamesFifty Shades of Grey… the Twilight series…  But what’s the book flavor of 2017?

I’m in the mood for something different, that I know.  I tried something that was supposed to be a funny romantic thriller recently. It was none of those things, and I made it about one-third of the way through before giving up.  As for writing, I’ve switched from concentrating on erotic romance to paranormal romance. (I’m on Chapter 4 of Book 3 in the Dream Weavers series.) I think I’m in the mood to read romantic suspense. I’m judging for the Rita competition in the upcoming weeks. Maybe that will point my way to something new!

What about you? What kind of books have you been one-clicking? Erotic romance? Historical? Biographies? Paranormal? Anime?  Got any recommendations?

One of Those Days

Today I walked into a room and discovered that my Roomba had gotten entangled with a newly potted philodendron.  It had pulled the pot off its shelf and dragged the plant out of the dirt entirely.  A big pile of dirt covered the corner of the room.  On cream-colored carpeting, no less.  Grrrrr.  This is the way my week has been going.  Enough, already.  Go away, 2016!
