October is my favorite month, and so far *minus the nasty flu* it's been a very good month :) I'm sorry to see that we're coming to the end of the month - where does the time go? Oh - yeah, I spent 2 weeks of it in bed, lol.
I'm sure everyone knows this by now - as I pretty much shouted it from the rooftops, lol, but I had a novella accepted by Ellora's Cave. Since I'm changing the title a bit, I'll announce the official name soon :) I'm super psyched about this and have been tossing around confetti, chocolate, and all kinds of sparkly, shiny, blue bits all over the place. I apologize for wherever it has landed. *BG*
Another acceptance is a shared collaboration with Brenda Williamson in Celtic Love Knots from Whiskey Creek Press. Our stories are both Celtic themed and of course HOT HOT HOT! My story is titled "Beyond Green Man's Gate" and hers is "Bedding a Mermaid" - I'll let you know when it will be out! Double the heat - double the trouble *BG*
Since I know you are dying to find out - here are the winners of Tainted - LIZ and SHUCK YING!!! Congrats :) Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with BLOG WIN in the subject line and which format you'd like - HTML or PDF :) Thanks so much for posting!
This week's prize is my latest paranormal erotic treat Spoiled Candy, which is part of the All Hallows Eve line now available from Venus Press. Just post this week and 2 winners will be announced next Monday right here on my blog. Good luck!
Men and chocolate make for a very Spoiled Candy
One bite and you will be addicted.
Hauntingly sinful pleasures arrive in a unique box of chocolates on
Halloween. With each scintillating treat Candy consumes, the soul of a
man is released. As a reward they offer her a lifetime of personal
satisfaction. Whatever, whenever, and however she wants.

So out of boredom while I was feeling under the weather, I snatched up a couple magazines for some mindless reading. Can we say give me a break? Will someone please explain to me about these celebrity women and their freaky eyelashes? Like each eyelash is individually coated in mascara and fanned out all funky, way up high so that their eyelids are missing - and what is up with the doe-eyed expression? I don't get it. It used to be I wouldn't mind looking like some of the lovely ladies, but I don't feel that way anymore. I'd rather eat, look normal, and keep my brain. It's disappointing. Meanwhile - the guys just keep getting more and more gorgeous - hello!
My son will be having a 4 day weekend due to teacher's conferences - so we'll be getting in some hangtime - which is actually kind of nice. We'll be racing against each other in the CARS PS2 racing game. Seriously, I kick butt, lol. I can't wait to talk with his teachers :) So far he's fairly certain of all his grades except one. I'm really proud of how well he's doing in his guitar class. Over the weekend we found a nice guitar at a reasonable price with a case included. We decided Christmas is too far away and had to snatch it up, lol.
This week is full of catching up, edits, an interview, writing, organization, back to the gym, and of course - play time with my son. I'm really looking forward to Halloween - it's my favorite holiday! The gym part is just a necessary evil!
Okay - guess I better get back to work. Hope everyone has a fantastic week!
