After Sundown No Longer Exclusive to Amazon

After Sundown, the first book in my Sensual Romance Series is no longer exclusive at Amazon. You can now purchase the eBook at Barnes & Noble, All Romance and Smashwords. It is also on its way to other eBook stores, such as Kobo, Sony, Apple, Diesel, Page Foundry, Baker-Taylor’s Blio and Baker-Taylor’s Axis360.

Each book in the series is a standalone love story. Expect sexual tension and happy endings.

Reviews have been trickling in, and so far I am pleased. For the record, I’ve never paid for reviews or actively solicited them. As far as I am aware, none are from personal friends or family members. 

If you prefer paperback books to ebooks, you can purchase After Sundown in paperback. Click here for the paperback version.

I Love it When They Laugh

My sister, Lynn, arrived in Havasu after Christmas, to spend time with my mother and me. While she was here I read her my work in progress (WIP), which is about 1/3 of the way through the first draft. It brought back memories of when I read the early drafts of Lessons to her, many years ago.

Sisters are different than friends. Friends may be hesitant to tell you if your story is missing something – or is basically, crap. Thing about sisters, even if they want to tell you your book is good, when it is bad – they normally can’t pull it off. At least my sister can’t. We are too close, and know each other too well.

So I was tickled when she really got into the story – and started laughing out loud at just the right parts.

For almost two months I had been having a problem committing to a new manuscript. I kept hopping from one project to another, leaving first chapters scattered all over my hard drive. Finally, I settled on my current WIP.

It seems I made the right choice, if my sister’s reaction is any indication. Now, I just need to figure out a title. And, finish the book, of course.
