If any of you are writers, I’m blogging for the Romance Author University over at Night Owl Romance today. The subject is “7 Reasons to Never Throw Away and Unpublished Manuscript,” and it’s appropriate for writers in any genre. It tells the story of Haunted Heart‘s long journey to the marketplace and offers ideas on other ways to use your unpublished work. I hope it helps!
To celebrate the Halloween season, I’m dropping the price of some of my spookier/supernatural stories. I do love ghosts and gothic romance. This week, it’s Everlasting. From now until Thursday, it will be only 99 cents. Go get your copy now!
Genre: Contemporary, Gothic erotic romance novella
When innocent college student Chevon takes an impulsive road trip, she finds herself lost in a thick, unpredictable fog. Out of nowhere, the Everlasting Inn appears. The remote house on the cliffs is a haven, yet it evokes erotic thoughts and a haunting sense of déjà vu. The hazy memories consume Chevon, arousing her and tempting her. She takes a job at the inn and when the sexy new owner shows up, she remembers what she’s been craving. And why…
Haunted Hearts is getting a great response from readers. Look at some things these reviewers had to say:
“I have read numerous good and great ghost stories and this one is one of the finest that I have ever had the pleasure to read. I have read many romances and this one just captivates heart, mind, body and soul… Haunted Hearts is a fantastic ghost story and a fantastic romance. If it was possible, I would give this book 100 stars.” – 5++ stars, N.N. Light’s Book Heaven
“I was honestly swept away by the plot – so much that whenever Officer Hardass and Callie were making goo-goo eyes at each other, that I wanted to be all, “Shush! Can’t you see there’s a mystery going on? Sex later, plot now.” Definitely a fun little adventure in the romance section” – 4 stars, Miranda Reads, #1 best reviewer, #11 most followed, and #9 top reviewer on Goodreads

I recently did a blog post over at RomanceJunkies.com. It’s about Halloween and the psychology of how, at times, some of us enjoy being scared. Check it out! http://romancejunkies.com/kimberly-deans-haunted-hearts/
I’m talking with my friend and fellow author, Jess Michaels, over at her podcast “Journeys of Romance.” We chat a lot about our creative processes, our long and winding careers in the writing business, and where to find the best steak ever. Check it out:
Congratulations to Vicki who won the newsletter giveaway contest. That fancy Halloween ghost projector is on its way to her.
I’ve got to admit, the results from this poll surprised me. The question was:
How do you usually get your story fix?
Audio books 0%
Print books 44%
I like them all 37%
With all the craze about new formats, these results were unexpected, but I love it. I like print, too! It made me realize I haven’t been good about posting links to the print version of my books, so I went right out and updated my website. I’ll be better about it in the newsletter, too.

Independent software developer Kylie Grant is on top of her game in the world of IT. She has loyal clients, a good reputation, and a prestigious membership in technology giant Afire Industries’ small business accelerator. Things are going well until she stumbles across an innocuous issue with the lighting in the building where she rents space. When she digs into the problem, she discovers something unexpected—a hack.
The incursion doesn’t affect her, but Kylie leaves enough clues to fix the problem. That earns her a visit from Luke McAllister, Afire’s chief security officer. Luke is handsome and rugged and everything that Kylie likes in a man, but she soon finds that he is blaming her for the security breach. Before long, the two are on a collision course, but also secretly looking at more than each other’s digital footprints.
When a fluke accident sends Kylie to the emergency room, Luke fears that the beautiful developer is in danger beyond the online world. Little does he know that she is also hiding a secret that threatens to jeopardize their now sizzling relationship. Can Kylie fix Afire’s problems without falling victim to the hacker? And can Luke learn to trust her and keep her safe before their enemy strikes again?
