Sad news about ARE, and an Update

Hello, friends.

As some of you are aware, All Romance eBooks announced Wednesday afternoon that they’re closing for business as December 31st. That cracking sound you hear? It’s my heart breaking. For readers, it means (among other things) that you’ll need to try and download any books in your library that you haven’t grabbed yet.

By the 31st.

What I propose is this: if you’ve bought my books through ARE and no longer can access them, email me the receipts and I’ll see that you get copies.

In shark news, Rough Waves is still in editing. But there will be new books available soon, I swear it.

And now if you’ll excuse me, I think this week calls for chocolate. And maybe booze.

Warmest wishes for the new year,



These guys are definitely checking their ebook libraries…


Super fast update–Dangerous Man

I saw people are asking. 🙂

The next bounty hunter book is in the final stages of editing. I’m giving myself time for last-minute problems and will say it should be uploaded by Saturday afternoon. (Then it’s up to the stores how long it takes to go live. They vary a bit.)

Sorry for the impersonal note. After it’s published, then I’m allowed to socialize and will be around to chat and relax, yay!



Update: nothing to see here

***update2: Thanks to a USB modem (I feel like I’m in 2009!), I was able to get it up (snicker) everywhere. Right now it’s live at half the stores. I’m leaving the blog post b/c it happened, dammit, and I must embrace my failure and shame. 🙂 Thanks for bearing with me, friends.***

***update: Going to the backup plan tomorrow afternoon.***

This is a very fast PSA for anyone who might be looking for Shark #3. The good news is that it’s finished. The bad news is that I’ve got really, really, reallllly slow internet for another week. So slow that I avoid going online. Aaaand… it’s not letting me upload the covers. I’m going to take a break, maybe have a drink, and try again in an hour.

You’ll know it worked if this blog post disappears. Fingers crossed. (The backup plan is to use a friend’s internet tomorrow.)

I’m so sorry to anyone who’s waiting.

Facebook, Apps, Three ways to win an Amazon gift card

So… I’m locked out of my Facebook account. *frowney face* I tried to log in from my new computer, and now they want me to email a photo of my driver’s license or passport. I thought it was a scam, but it’s a new policy. It takes a certain type of person to come up with a rule like that… Someone who has never had to worry about being stalked. Someone who doesn’t live in the same world as the rest of us. So I’m not going to be on FB for a while.

Since you listened to me whine a bit, here’s a win/win (and you could even win an Amazon gift card)!!! The WTRAFSOG Facebook page has long been a fantastic way to discover new authors. What could make it better? Apps! And a chance to win a gift card! Links are in the official press release below…

Charity Anthology “Underground Erotica” Is Here!

Hold onto your hats because today is going to be a double-post day (After Forever/Bisexual Billionaire #2 is now on sale), but I’m separating the posts to make the tags work better. 🙂

“Underground Erotica” is a charity anthology I participated in to support Absolute Write, a resource for writers.

The anthology consists of 8 sexy stories. Mine (Dark Roast) started out as Take Me Hard #5, but 1/3 the way through I decided to donate it instead. I modified it so there aren’t references to the heroes and heroines from the first stories, but you’ll recognize Sullivan as a Take Me Hard sort of Dom: mysterious, powerful, and sure of what he wants.


The erotica authors of the Absolute Write are taking you underground—sometimes literally, sometimes figuratively. Karenna Colcroft’s haunting story gives sex in public an unexpected twist, and Erin Lark makes waiting out a storm into something special—and hot!— before Kate Lowell draws you deep into a cave for a steamy encounter. Lauren Gallagher sends you back to the 1930s for some gambling, bootlegging, and a little forbidden ménage, while Maryn Blackburn brings two enemies together in the wintery depths of World War II.

If you’re in the mood for something extra spicy, you’ll love how C.P. Foster opens up a very new world for a curious barmaid. And stick around because Cleo Peitsche and Jack L. Pyke keep the kink coming.

Come join us—but fair warning. Once you go underground, you may never want to come back…

Careless (After Forever/Bisexual Billionaire #1) Now Available

careless600First story in a new series! M/m/f (2 guys, one gal, and hot man-on-man action) It’s extra fun because of the best friend angle. You’ll see what I mean…


After being forced out of his company, Nelson returns home a billionaire with a hole in his life. When he meets Kimberly and Samuel, he decides he’ll have them both.

But Kimberly and Samuel aren’t a couple, and Samuel’s the one holding things up. He hasn’t dated a woman in five years, and even though it’s plain he loves Kimberly, he agrees to Nelson’s threesome on the condition that it be only one night.

Kimberly would marry Samuel in an instant if he asked. He’s just not interested. But a single night to satisfy her curiosity is better than never knowing Samuel’s kiss.

There’s no way for Nelson, Samuel and Kimberly to all get what they want, and one careless moment of weakness carries the power to destroy everything.

Just getting set up here…

It’s going to be a couple of weeks before this blog gets on its feet, but I’ve already added a few links.  If you want to join my mailing list, it’s just a few inches away. I know I’ve been really terrible about tweeting the exact minute one of my new stories is available, but I’m working on making the whole process automatic (and therefore idiot-proof).

The main reason I started this blog was so that you would have an easy way to contact me, so if there’s something you’re burning to say, I definitely want to hear it.  (At least I think I do. Please don’t make me regret this!)
