Release Day Fun

How can a Monday be fun? Well…really, it’s not supposed to be, but today is the release of my newest Crushes to Cravings Tale, Playing Doctor.  It’s not, contrary to belief, about a doctor, but about two people who played together as kids and as nature would have it, became romantically involved until they’re torn apart by cruelty. The story bugged me for weeks until finally I put my big project on the side and worked on it. Then it just flew out of my brain and onto paper.

Playing Doctor AReElijah “Eli” Tucker loved Dixie Champagne from the time they were young only to have his world ripped apart by a betrayal that cut deep. Vowing to have his vengeance on her, he bided his time until she returned to town. It took ten years but seeing her again revives feelings he thought long dead and it takes all of his considerable willpower to exact his revenge. On the woman he still loves even now.

Dixie Champagne worked hard to keep her reputation clean, to break the mold her mother created and she did it by leaving Grand Terre. Going back home means possibly seeing her one-time childhood sweetheart again, but she’ll risk it to help her sister. What she didn’t expect was to have dinner with Eli or that she’d end up having the most erotic experience of her life, only to have him destroy her afterwards.

These star-crossed lovers will have to discover the truth of their past to have a future together.

You can pick Playing Doctor (A Crushes to Cravings Tale 2) up at Amazon, ARe and Smashwords.

And that’s not all the excitement going on. The Loving Dangerously Blog Hop is now over and the winner has been picked. I had a giveaway on my blog as well and that winner is… strawberryrosered. I’ve offered up reader’s choice of backlist in this giveaway and Strawberryrosered will get to pick what book she’d like to win. I want to thank everyone who participated in the hop and remind you of the other two hops coming up. Just peek over at the sidebar at the Six-Pack Stud-a-thon Blog hop starting next week and the Big Cocks and Broomsticks Blog Hop starting in October. There are lots more prizes to win!

Finally, the weekend was a blast. Sort of. Wrote 8200 words on my big project on Saturday, drank more coffee than I should have and then nearly had a heart attack during the Saints game. I should’ve known it was going to be bad when I developed a horrible case of heart burn earlier yesterday that didn’t go away. Nope. It just got worse as the game progressed until I swore I was going to die by the last 5 seconds of the game. I survived though, so obviously I’m in decent health.

Bless you boys! You never allow us to have a dull game.

What did you do this weekend?

Happy Dance

I don’t normally blog this many days a week. Okay, I used to blog this many times a week, but I got lazy. I tend to hit the important days. You know, Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Tuesdays are guest post days and Thursdays…just sort of sit there waiting to have something to report. Poor Thursday.

But today, Thursday gets some good news. I finally got everything in place and have the release date for Playing Doctor (A Crushes to Cravings Tale 2). It’ll come out on Monday, September 16 which is right around the corner! Self-publishing is scary business. I won’t lie. But on the other hand, it’s also exciting. I’ve been writing paranormal books for so long, it feels a little strange for me to write about regular people. You know, people like you and me who can’t turn into something or who aren’t inhumanly strong? Yeah, that’s not what’s happening in these short stories.

And I have even more planned. That’s probably the best part of writing. Each time I finish one story, another character pops up and says, “Hey, how ya doin’?”

That doesn’t mean however, that I’m not writing my paranormals. In fact, I’m halfway through a brand new project I’m working on with four other authors. It’s something I’ve been meaning to write for the longest time and after spending RT brainstorming and world-building, it’s finally coming to life. I’m still keeping it under wraps though. Just because I’m a terrible tease.

In the meantime, check out the Crushes to Cravings series. The first story, Freeze Tag came out last month. Playing Doctor releases on Monday, September 16, but is available for pre-order at Smashwords!
