Places I'll Be

So, it looks like October is going to be a very busy month for me. And the end of September as well. 

Currently, I'm working through the revisions on a romantic suspense manuscript that has been gathering dust for about 6 years. Although it finaled in American Title V a few years ago, it seems my serial killer is just a bit too much from some publishers because he includes children as his victims. I don't have him kill any kids "on stage" but it is, this is going to be self-published. I even have the coolest cover for the book.
coming soon

Isn't it great!? Lindsay Breen did the cover and I'm really liking it.

Anyway, I hope to have it finished with edits and ready for publication by late October. 

Another book I'm working on, which I'm sure fans of the Diablo Blanco Club will enjoy hearing, is Richard and Becka's story. The title for it is: Rogue Master. Ohh, gives me shivers. And my oh my, Richard is sooo not what you think. I've finally figured out the blurb for it (you know that bit on the back of the cover). Check it out:

Richard Bennett has spent his life working toward one goal -- killing the man who murdered his parents. He's mastered the art of Domination, but his only chance to exact his revenge is about to slip through his fingers because he needs the one thing he's never owned before.

A sexual slave.

When the last woman he'd ever expected to see is left handcuffed to his bed, he's determined to use her to his advantage. Making her into the perfect submissive will gain him access to the man he's after, but place her squarely in the line of fire should his mission go awry.

He's thought of every contingency, but he never factored an unknown enemy or an unexpected possessiveness into his plans.

Now he has to choose between the life of the woman he loves or the man he's sworn to kill.

Does that sound cool or what? Please tell me what you think of it.

Of course, I will be around the web, on Facebook and at the Kinky Ever After blog, as well as Midnight Seductions Authors. But tomorrow, September 23rd, I'm guest blogging at Romance Books R Us. Seems Triss Long, my erotica author from Teach Me, Master, wanted to have a discussion about her books. Check it out and feel free to comment -- I'll try to respond by Friday evening, but I'll be in Greensboro, NC attending the Writer's Police Academy at Guilford Community College. I had so much fun last year, I had to do it again!

That's where the wild schedule comes in. I'll be in Greensboro until Sunday morning. Then the following weekend, I fly down to Atlanta for the Georgia Romance Writer's Moonlight and Magnolias conference. The weekend after that, Cherry Adair will be in Raleigh, NC presenting an all day workshop at the Sheraton on Page Rd, hosted by the Heart of Carolina Romance Writers. I'll get two whole weekends home before I'm off to Seattle at the end of October to attend the Greater Seattle Romance Writers' Emerald City Conference.

So, you can see I have a busy month and a half ahead of me. Plus I have my goal of getting In A Lover's Silence completed, as well as Rogue Master, the second in my Construction Zone erotica series done, and start work on my YA time-travel Through the Dollhouse.

If you happen to be attending any of these conferences please feel free to say hi! I like talking with readers and authors about writing and books (not just my own, I assure you)


  1. Hiya! Found your blog from the list of pitch workshop authors for Moonlight & Magnolias. It looks like you're one of the few (or the only?) authors on the list who writes erotica, so you're definitely on my request list! I'm not sure that what I write is erotica, but my stories do lean more to that side than towards, say, Inspirational. :)

    Good luck on your writing, and hope to see you at M&M.

  2. Thanks B. I'd be more than happy to chat with you. I should be arriving by Thursday afternoon.
    I actually write erotic romance more than erotica, but I can give you my opinion if you want it.
