Where has the month gone and lots of reminders

I can't believe we're coming up on the end of July. It's been an action packed month, but next month will be twice that. I'm busy working on too many things at once, and don't have anything new to post, so I decided to do up some reminders of contests and where I'll be.

If you haven't entered my CATCH THE BEADS contest, there is still time. What do you have to do to enter?

Go to the Mardi Gras Publishing Group and post "Egyptian Cotton" in the subject line. Then tell me you'll take off your shirt for beads. Oh come on, don't be's for fun, and for prizes! You've seen the women at Mardi Gras, they let it all hang out. Once you do that, I'll throw you a special coded and colored pair of beads(ie. scarlet 777) and on August 1st I'll post the three winning codes.

What do you win, you ask? 2 winners will receive a copy of my book Egyptian Cotton and one person will receive a pair of pyramid earrings and a bag of cotton balls. Cotton balls you ask? Look...the earrings are great on their own, but I'm doing a play on words with my title ;)

I also have a Butterfly Kisses contest going on. To celebrate the release of my book Butterfly Kisses on July 21st, from Cobblestone Press, I'd like to give you two ways to win. One lucky person will receive a $10 gift certificate to Cobblestone Press. Another lucky person will win a beautiful butterfly book thong and a bag of chocolate Kisses.

To enter the contest, send me an email to with Butterfly in the subject line, and tell me Butterflies are Beautiful. I will choose the winners August 18th and announce them here.

Tomorrow afternoon I'll be posting excerpts of Vampire Hunter Book 1 - Vintages and Night of the Nogitsune Book 1 - Wanted at Silk's Vault for genre week. Not a member of the loop? Here ya go: Silk's Cyber Cafe. All day authors will be posting about their vampire/shape-shifter/paranormal books.

I'm accepting recipes for a Cookbook PDF I'm putting together, and I'd love something from you! Send me drinks, desserts, appetizers, snacks, or anything you think is a tasty treat. When I have enough recipes I'll add a few bells and whistles, and send everyone a copy, as well as post it on my website in my recipe section. Send your yummies to

My historical erotic romance novel, Melting Iron is available now from Samhain Publications. I'm excited to say this is my first novel and my first with Samhain. I'm real proud of this book and would love to hear what you thought about it! I'm still writing the sequel, life has been crazy, but it's getting there, lol.

Tell me about it! I can't believe July is over. School starts this coming Tuesday, and it's all rush-rush.

I know! Time's a flying, that's for sure! Man, how do you keep up with so much? You're an inspiration... :)

I have absolutely no idea where the time went and yes, I can relate to the overloaded plate right now.

You know, I wait all year for summer to come around and I don't even get out and enjoy it, lol. Ah's been too humid here so I have to lock myself up where the AC is.

Hi Y. You know me...workaholic. I can't even keep up, lol. I could honestly use a full week of sleep. I think things are going to start quieting down around October.

Ann Cory said...

Hey Stacy. It's crazy, you know? Like today...gone...poof? Don't even know where my Friday went. Didn't even have time to update.

Hi Ann!

Just posted at Mardi Gras Publishing for your contest. I cracked up laughing afterwards. I imagine some people probably looked at my post and said "say what!" Time does seem to be flying buy way too fast lately. Glad I am not the only one who thinks so.
