It's Over...The Blog Tour That Is!

Today is the last day of my Diablo Blanco Club blog tour and I'm both relieved and excited and maybe even a little depressed. I've had a wonderful time stopping by the various blogs every week and reading the comments and questions left by the different visitors.

Sharing Links and Wisdom is my last stop and I'm talking with Emily about one of my favorite books in the Diablo Blanco Club series, Under Control. She's even been nice enough to review Ben's and Vance's story.

Come by and leave a comment and let me know what you think.
Remember to enter the Rafflecotper giveaway...contest ends December 22nd (yes, I extended it. The holidays can be such a whirlwind of activities, I didn't want anyone missing out because of a twenty four hour window.)

Good luck and I hope every one has a wonderful holiday season!

It will be very interesting to see what Snarky Mom Reads has to say about Rite of First Claim.

Stop Number Six on the Tour

I'm half-way through the blog tour and I'm excited. This is a good thing. I had a lot of fun reading responses and learning things on the last blog stop. This week, I'm the one being interviewed and I'm talking about the first book I sold to Loose Id. Santa's Elf

Seven years ago, today in fact, I signed my first contract with Loose Id, LLC and I've had a blast with my writing ever since. While there are some books I enjoy more than others, Santa's Elf, I think, will always stay on my top five list because it started my career.

Happy Halloween Everyone!

I've had a great week so far.

Halloween is my favorite holiday and the great thing is, in Nevada, it's a state holiday--Nevada was admitted to the Union on October 31, 1861. Several other states have been admitted on October 31st, but since I grew up in Nevada, that's the one I remember most.

I hope everyone has a great night tonight, don't drink too much and don't over indulge in the sweets.

I'll post on Monday my next stop on my Diablo Blanco Club blog tour.

A Quick Recap of the Week So Far...

Monday night I chatted live at Night Owl Reviews with fellow Midnight Seductions Author, Elizabeth Black. I always like the live chats. They move quickly and are always fun...the questions people ask are great.

Thank you everyone who showed up!

If you haven't seen my Twitter stream...I am a HUGE fan of The Blacklist. Love the way James Spader is just wickedly evil but has a core of integrity.
Favorite lines from this weeks episode:

"Let me put your mind at ease. I'm never telling you everything."

--when reminded that he's killed two people since working with the FBI--"We've gotten off to a rocky start."

Advice to Ressler when it comes to dealing with the French intelligence officer--"Or bed over any available piece of furniture and let her slap your ass, she loves that."

"I'm betting on the long play. The future."

I also bounce back and forth between The Voice and Sleepy Hollow. I know, weird combination, but I like the talent of the people on The Voice, but Orlando Jones is just wonderful on Sleepy Hollow. I enjoyed his performance as the museum tour holograph in The Time Machine with Guy Pearce. Just too bad this week was a rerun of the Sleepy Hollow premiere.

As for my blog tour,

I find it interesting sometimes how you have expectations for something and then when it doesn't quite come out the way you thought it would, you sit back and wonder "what did I do wrong?"

For a couple of the blog stops I've been on, I've taken the time to seriously think about the questions being asked by the blog host, only to visit the site and find out my "interviews" aren't even included in the posts. I enjoyed the questions and thought I had some good answers...I'll post the interviews that were missing if anyone would like to see them.

I do appreciate the great review for Rite of First Claim

I have to wonder though, do readers really just want to see the books available without knowing anything about the author? Would I be better off simply posting a scene or two on my blog for each of the books I have out?

Feel free to let me know your thoughts on the situation.

Questions that made me think!

This week's stop on my blog tour is Musings From An Addicted Reader and the question she asked me was a bit difficult for me.

I'm very into movies but I've honestly never considered my Diablo Blanco Club books for a movie. And I'm even more at a loss when I try picking out the actors who'd play my characters.

To see which book I chose and the actors and actresses I selected to play the characters. I'd love input on what you'd think or who'd you pick.

Leave a comment to be entered in the contest. Both here and on 

Musings From An Addicted Reader.

And, if you're interested in chatting live with me...tonight from 8-9 pm EST I'll be on Night Owl Reviews Chat with Elizabeth Black as part of the Midnight Seductions Authors.

So Many Changes and Not All of Them Good...

...But it's getting better all the time!

If you haven't seen or heard by now, I had to cut off my website, more for financial reasons than anything else. Good news is, the blog is still going strong...despite my having neglected it for the last couple of months **winces at the abundance of dead plant leaves strewn across the floor** Sorry about that. 

Anyway, tomorrow, September 30th, kicks off my very first Virtual Books tour. Every Monday between now and December 16th, I'll be hosted at twelve different sites talking about my Diablo Blanco Club series. At the end of the tour there will be a drawing for four great prizes. 

The grand prize is a Diablo Blanco Club messenger bag filled with e-copies of the first four books in the series: Unfair Advantage, Under Control, Rite of First Claim, and Santa's Elf; a few pens, some DBC post it notes, and a key chain wallet. I"ll also be giving away three Amazon Gift Certificates--one each for $20, $15, and $10 and there are multiple ways to enter both here and on the other blogs.

On Monday mornings, I'll post the links to that day's blog host so you can leave a comment or ask a question to be entered for the prizes. Then swing back by here on Wednesday for a recap of the event and get another entry with another question or thoughtful comment.

Wish me luck with this,'s my first time. 

Have a great week! I intend to!

Dragon Ugly Character Interviews -- Brent & Carissa

My friend and fellow author, Selena Illyria, was kind enough to introduce me to her characters, Brent and Carissa, from her latest book, Dragon Ugly.
Me being me, I just had to find out a bit more about these two...but getting a dragon and wolf shifter to behave in public is worse than trying to herd a hundred angry cats...
I hope you enjoy the adventure as much as I did!
Oh, and as a special treat, Selena has agreed to give away a copy of Dragon Ugly to one person who comments about the interview or excerpt (or both) between now (July 15th) and Wednesday (July 17th)!
The winner will be announced on Friday, July 19th.

The Dragon's Lair is closed for the morning due to the cleaning crew trying to make things spotless for tonight's performance by The Snake. There's already people camped out, waiting in line to get in when the time comes. Getting past the fans had been like running a gauntlet, but the guy at the door had been expecting me.

Louisa directs me to the outdoor patio that's been set up for summer use before turning back to direct two of Brent's friends, Fletch and Tor, on making sure the bar is stocked and that everything is going according to plan. From my set at the table on the patio, I watch Brent and Carissa walk in, holding hands and smiling.

A red flush fills Brent's face and Carissa can't stop giggling. They settle down at my table on the outdoor patio. Selena Illyria trails in after them and takes a seat at the next table, as if determined to distance herself from the characters. She blushes then looks away several times, seeming uncomfortable.

While Brent and Carissa are whispering into each other's ears and shifting their chairs across from me, Se leans over and gestures toward me. "They've been doing the PDA thing all freaking morning. I try and get them to behave and Brent seems to take it as a green light to push the envelope. Carissa doesn't seem to mind too much, but I can tell her patience is wearing thin and she wants to get him home. ASAP."

Ah, a clear indication that this is going to be a quick and dirty (no pun intended) interview if I want to keep from shocking readers with...well, you know.

Once the couple had moved their chairs closer together and settled down, I jumped right into the questions.

Qwillia Rain: I can see you two have other things on your mind, so I promise this won't take long. I look first at Brent then Carissa. Describe your favorite pair of shoes. Why are they your favorite?

Brent: My brand new sneakers. They're so comfortable. Since I'm on my feet so much I need something that's not going to make me feel like I need to tear off my feet just to feel comfortable.

Carissa: My sexy black leather sandals with stiletto heels. I feel so sexy in them even if they are a pain to walk in sometimes.

Qwillia Rain: I look at Brent first. What's your favorite thing about Carissa?

Brent:  I love that she's so supportive of me. That she wants me for me and not --he waggles his eyebrows at Carissa-- 'cause I'm so damn sexy.

Qwillia Rain: I turn to Carissa and grin. What's your favorite thing about Brent?

Carissa: she rolls her eyes at Brent I love that he's so comfortable in his skin and that he loves all of me and that he makes me feel beautiful even when I've had a bad day.

Qwillia Rain: I look at Brent again. What do you like least or scares you about Carissa?

Brent: That I may drive her away if I can't control my dragon fully.

Qwillia Rain: And you Carissa? What do you like least or scares you about Brent?

Carissa: That he might lose interest in me because I might not be as beautiful as some of the women that he encounters on his job.
Brent reached over and squeezed Carissa's hand.

Brent: You're my mate, baby. No one else will ever lift me up, keep me grounded and love me like you do.
Carissa wiped away a tea and sniffled before regaining her composure.

Qwillia Rain: I hide my smile and make sure neither of them notice my quiet sigh..this is why I love romance! Ladies first this time. Carissa, describe what your job is and why you do it.

Carissa: I am part owner of an aromatherapy boutique called Scentify.

Brent: beaming with pride Which is awesome. You should try their relaxation kit. Ah, best night of sleep I've had in weeks, well, not the best. I only sleep well when you're in bed with me. Brent grins widely at Carissa. Anyway, I'm a waiter at Dragon's Lair Pub/Restaurant and an investor in the Velvet Palace Sex Shop.

Across from me, Carissa squirms in her seat as Brent reaches over and caresses her thigh.
An exasperated groan comes from the table behind us. Se leans forward and snaps her fingers a few times.

Selena Illyria: Focus guys!

Qwillia Rain: I fight not to laugh and hurry on to the next question before things get too out of hand. Coffee, tea, soda...?

Brent: Huh? Oh, right, I've had to lower my java intake so I'd say tea.

Carissa: Coffee, can't live without it. No coffee then you'll really see what a werewolf bitch looks like in the morning.

Brent: a nervous chuckle slips free as he nods Yeah, you don't want to see that.

Qwillia Rain: I can see the heat in both Carissa and Brent's eyes and I'm sure there aren't many more questions I'll be getting answers to, so I quickly toss out the next one. What addiction can you not live without?

Brent: Swimming naked. Does that count as an addiction?

Qwillia Rain: I nod. Yep, I would say it does. Carissa stays quiet, so I turn the next question her direction. If your life were a book, what would you prefer the author not tell readers about?

Carissa: her cheeks darkening with a blush Not telling them about my mother's odd notions about my sex life.

A look passed between the couple and a soft thump signaled Se giving up and dropping her head to her table. As if I didn't exist or the world around them had disappeared, Brent and Carissa moved into each other's arms and I closed my notepad. Turning to Se, I patted her on the back. "Don't worry, Se. The hormone levels will drop. Eventually."
She looked at me then glanced at the couple behind us. Her eyes went wide before she turned back. "I need a drink."
From the noises behind me, I had to agree. Then I added, "And chocolate."
Keeping my eyes averted, I followed Se back into The Dragon's Lair and headed for the bar.

Get a better "read" on Brent's and Carissa's antics when you check out their story in Selena Illyria's book, Dragon Ugly from etopia press.

Can a dragon shifter give more than just hot sex?
After Brent's New Year's fling with his friends Fletcher and Tor -- and Tor's mate Louisa -- Brent is determined to find his own mate. His dragon wants him to find their mate, too, and if Brent doesn't find a way to locate her soon, his dragon will take matters into his own talons. And that could spell trouble.

Wolf shifter Carissa has no desire to live up to her wild musician mother and artistic father's vision of free love and sex parties. She's buried her sexual desires and focused on building up her aromatherapy store, Scentify, no distractions allowed. Until she meets Brent. The sexy dragon shifter makes her burn with suppressed need. The only problem? His dragon wants Carissa, too. And pursuing the dominant dragon would be playing with fire.

Giving in to his dragon saps Brent of his focus and energy. Things are turning ugly--dragon ugly. How can he bond with his mate when his dragon only wants sex?


When he took the bud between his teeth and sucked the aching tip into the warm, wetness of his mouth, she moaned aloud. Sweet pleasure cascaded through her as he tugged, nipped, flicked her nipple and the barbell that ran through it. With his free hand he worked her other piercing, rolling the jewelry in its hole and tugging on it. Pain and pleasure melted together in a red hot fire that filled her body. A ball of tension began low in her belly, as her vaginal walls fluttered and clenched and her pulse quickened.

Inarticulate sounds bounced off the walls, echoing back at her with each tug and flick of his tongue. “Goddess, so good. More. Please, harder. Brent, harder,” she growled out, her voice so ragged, she didn’t recognize it.

She felt the wolf surge upward, as raw animal desire filled her body. She needed more contact, more stimulation. Carissa ran one hand down his back and slipped it between their moisture-slickened bodies to push it between her legs. Her fingers delved between her thickened folds to find her clit. She stroked the nub, rubbing it with strong brushes as he continued to stimulate her nipples. Her pleasure increased as she felt the backs of her fingers brush against his erect cock. An idea of how to make this pleasurable for the both of them struck her and she moved her fingers away and tipped her hips closer to him until her pussy pressed against his erection.

She rocked her sex against his penis, trying to stimulate them both. Ribbons of tension slipped outward, filling her belly and wrapping around her growing orgasm. Delicious sensations surged within her as his muffled grunts filled the air. She gasped and moaned as she tried to claw closer to release. The wolf howled within, demanding more from them both. She could feel the shift coming on her. Pain and desire seared along her arms and legs. Her fingernails began to grow in sharp pangs until they’d turned into claws. She reached out and held onto his waist, digging her nails into his skin. The scent of blood mixed with the perfume of water and the bath salts and sweat. Moisture misted her face and neck, and clouded her vision until all she could do was close her eyes against the sting.

Her world view narrowed down to Brent and the pressure that was growing through her body. The shift and tension bounced her chest and coiled in her stomach as she continued to grind against him. Pleasure turned to pain as her nipple became oversensitive, and Brent transferred his attention to the other one. More, faster, harder—she wanted it all. And yet she felt an emptiness in her womb. She wanted to feel that sweet pain as his dick stretched her to accommodate his girth…but now was not the time. For now, nothing mattered but climax.

The cliff approached closer and closer with each move of her hips, until she could feel herself balancing right on the edge.

“Brent,” she sobbed out. Carissa wasn’t sure what else she could do. The aroma of water rushed up her nostrils as the room temperature increased. She felt his hands grip her hips as she rubbed his cock against her folds. Tingles ran up and down her legs, swirling at the base of her back and racing up her spine. The buzz filled her head as she dove deep into the pleasure. She felt the glide of his cock against her clit, increasing the blaze. The flames filled every limb and wrapped around her torso. Her body felt too small to contain the pressure that threatened to burst.

The conflagration burst inside of her, pulling her under. She howled in a long, loud sound that made the walls shudder.

A roar followed her yowl and a wash of warm brushed against her sex. Brent wrapped his arms around her as she quaked against him. Stars burst behind her eyelids as she struggled to breathe. Her mind was filled with a numbed blissful silence. She let out a sob as she rested her head on his shoulder. Carissa could feel his heart pounding against her chest in an echo of her own heart’s rapid pace.

“Goddess, that felt good,” Brent rasped out.

All she could do was silently agree. Carissa couldn’t even pick up her head to nod.

“Looks like we need another bath, or perhaps we can do this again in the shower.” He pressed a kiss to her temple.

Carissa wasn’t even sure if she could stand.

Just a little update

Over the last few months I've been watching the sales of some of my books on various distribution sites. It hasn't been pretty, to say the least. Yes, I recognize I should do more promotion, but I'm not that kind of person. I love my books. I love talking about my characters. But I also hate in your face advertising. If my books are good, word of mouth will sell them.

With that in mind, and because I can't see the logic in a trickle of sales for some books at other distributors, I'm doing that dreaded thing that some people may disagree with...I'm making one book, In A Lover's Silence, permanently exclusive to Amazon and for the next three months, the first book in my Diablo Blanco Club series, Unfair Advantage, will also be exclusive to Amazon.

This way, when I feel like offering the books for free for a day, I can.

For those who have never read Unfair Advantage, it will be free January 20th and 21st, the day before my new book, Poker Posse 1: Looking at Rose, will be released by Loose Id.

I'll make sure to update my website and the DBC page so readers won't be frustrated with the non-working links.

Have a great day and a very Happy New Year!

Tarot Tuesday has been postponed to bring you....
The cover of my next book, Looking At Rose. Rose is the first book in my Poker Posse series and will be released January 22nd by Loose Id, LLC.

Here's a little bit about the story:

Widow Viola Whittman is blessed with the company of her little girl, but she's afraid the longer Rose stays home, the harder it'll be for her daughter to find a worthy man. So she hatches a plan with her childhood friends to fix the problem.

Rose is twenty-six, happy running her sweet shop and living at home, but she's pretty sure General Sherman would be celebrated in the South before she'd find a man in Magnolia not intimidated by her height and curves.

When she and her four girlfriends go to the Omen, a local BDSM club, to find a Mr. Right Now, the perfect candidate literally lands at her feet--Ibraham Rajonovich. Six foot six and sexy, Ibraham runs the urban winery in the shop next to hers and has fueled Rose's fantasies for over a year; learning that he is a dominant just makes her want him even more.

Only one problem: Rose is a virgin and Ibraham has no intention of going there. At least not without full disclosure of what he expects of Rose, because the thing he wants most is to share the pleasure he finds in looking at rose.

Poker Posse 1: Looking at Rose will be available January 22, 2013

Happy New Year!
