I woke up this morning to the wonderful news that Fusion is a Rainbow Award Finalist in the Bisexual Romance category. I was already buzzing about when my friend, Tina Blenke, PMd me asking if I knew that Flare was also in Round 3 for Best Cover. Seriously? So, it’s been a pretty good morning, at least until I had to help the kid with her homework. 😉 To vote for best cover, click here. There are a lot of beautiful covers, but I’m still in love with what Anne Cain did for Flare. And please don’t mind me while I squeeeee.

I’m going to GRL as a supporting author and have been asked to be a GRL Featured Blogger over at Love Bytes Reviews. I’m there today and they are hosting a giveaway of my backlist of books, winner’s choice. 🙂 Check out how buying a new printer made my brain short circuit over to MM Romance. That’s not much of a stretch when all I do it think about is men falling in love, is?
My publisher has a super cool new Author Arcade. Doesn’t that make you want to start digging through your piggy bank to search for quarters? Well, no need. It’s free! The Author Arcade shows biographies, books written, and contact information for your favorite Dreamspinner Press authors. Here’s my page. Check it out and tell me what you think. I used the stand-by photo of me that some of you may have never seen. I’m a girl? *GASP* *Snerk* Like that was a shocker. Hehe. Peek around. Search other authors. Have fun! I need to get back to editing. So much work. I’m a busy bee.
Today my Love’s Landscape story, Forever Under a Rainbow, was released by the Goodreads MM Romance group. For the last several years, this group has held their Don’t Read in the Closet event, and I was lucky enough to grab a prompt. If you are a member of the MM Romance group, you can read it now, and for the rest of the world, the story will be released to the general public in a few days. I’ll get the link up here as soon as I get it. Enjoy. Bridger Jenkins’ life has felt like a huge puzzle with only the edges put together since he realized he’s not straight. Trying to…
I spent the morning updating the review page on my site, adding star graphics and cutting words so I could add more reviews without overwhelming the reader. I’m sure I missed some great reviews out there, but I can’t put everything up. It’s so lovely to go back and read the kind words review sites have left about my books. Thank you for taking the time and effort you all do to help promote the “children” we authors work so hard on.
Anne Cain‘s covers for Fusion and Flare are featured in this great article by A.J. Corza about cover art that makes her want to pick up a book. I know I’m a tad biased, but I think Anne Cain did an outstanding job on all three covers from North Star as well as from Private Display of Affection. She’s amazing, and I know I’ve been very lucky to have her work on these covers.
Right now there are a few giveaways/contests going on for the books in my North Star world. First, Mrs. Condit and Friends is giving away a copy of Flare. The deadline to enter is Feb 8th at 11pm CST. You can also read a review of Flare and an interview with Hugo, so click to comment and get entered. Second, Prism Book Alliance has a contest ending February 6th. I shared an outtake I wrote of Hugo and Kevin in high school that will never make it in to any of my books. If you click and comment, you can have a chance to win either Spark, Fusion, Flare, or…
