Brand me, baby!

There's a hot book on the loose from Cobblestone Press you should know about! Fellow Romance Diva Emma Petersen has a 'brand' new release entitled Branded - her first - and what better way to kick off a release than with a contest? A hot contest. A Kama Sutra Weekender love kit complete with oil and feathers kinda contest. And who can't use a little bit of Kama Sutra lovin' on the weekend?

Here's the blurb:

Jenny and Ty have known each other most of their lives and have been attracted to each other since they’ve been old enough to know what attraction meant. A tragedy has bought Jenny back home to Parsons' Pass and into Ty’s arms.

The heat between them is as hot as ever, but the scars he carries from his parents’ relationship and his own failed marriage keep Jenny at bay. When Ty comes close to losing the most important person in his life, he knows it’s time to bury the past and fight for their love.

Check out an excerpt here.

Emma is a gem, one of those authors so supportive of other writers that you wish she lived next door so you could go shopping and bar-hopping and all that other girl-pal stuff. Maybe she'd even share the hot tattoed guy on her website. I'd like to spend a Kama Sutra weekend with him.

Coming in October... The Andumi Effect

Got my cover today from Trace at Amber Quill. I could just lick him all over! (Not you, Trace -- ha ha). This 17K story scheduled for a late October release will be my first guy-on-guy in epub format. And if you like M/M, you may want to consider buying the "Hidden Desires" AmberPax Collection that The Andumi Effect is part of.

Minot Tvargot thought he knew his place in the universe until his double-crossing government makes him the possession of a Damurian slaver. Now this seasoned spy must figure out why the govs betrayed him--and fight his growing attraction to the man who owns him.

Legendary spy Ky Andumi is no slaver, and the disguise he wears can’t hide his desire for the young spy on his ship for long. He wants Minot badly, and when the Unias Government takes his soul mate away, he’ll do anything to get him back.

Hubby wasn't too thrilled with the cover. Can't understand why...

What the heck am I up to?

What a lousy blogger I am. Not that anyone's waiting around for my posts with baited breath, but I should be more attentive. Anyway, what's up with me?

-Finished the first round of edits on Topping Tora, and I have to admit I'm a bit afraid of how it'll be received. I really put my heart and soul into this story and if it doesn't sing with the readers, I'll be devastated.

-Editing and proofing continues for two of my pubs. Trying to find time to write...

-My CP (and my husband) wants me to aim for a full-length print book. This scares me shitless. 100K? No freaking way. But I want this. I want an agent and a book from a traditional publishing house. I just don't know if I can find a plot I love enough to stick with, me and my writer's ADD. Argh. I came up with ten plotlines, two of which aren't erotic at all. Geez, where's my head?

Oh, the pressure!
