Santa's Elves and Other Elven Things

Spirit of elves:
Santa's elves evolved from a belief in European countries that good and bad spirits were active during the 12 days of Christmas with the help of Clement Moore's title, The Night Before Christmas. Here's forty-nine more facts about the holiday:

And here's another fact--There's a holiday read coming out soon!

In the spirit of promoting a fellow author, I'm honored to present Decadent Kane's cover reveal--oh and what a cover! It sparks interest without even reading a blurb. However, here is a short one for those of you who wish to know more:

An old family secret draws Ribbon into an Elven world while Draven is forced to find a way to drag her back home to save Christmas magic.
Ribbon of Darkness is set to release December 13th 2013

Hosting Heavenly Hot Halloween Heroes

I love to delve into the magical aspects of my imagination. I've written about feisty faeries, petulant pixies, sexy sorcerers, and time-traveling tavern tarts.
Okay, so I alliterate to the point of insanity. Sue me.

Thoughts After Submission

Get your mind outta the gutter. I don't mean it that way. 

I'm talking about submitting a manuscript.

You're a WHAT?

Let's talk about magic today.

A hot guy named Wren catches Kerry'
Then after he makes everything whoa-tingle-whoop with a kiss, he makes her feel beautiful for the first time in ages. More than anything, he makes her care.
Then tells her he's a sorcerer.
From another time. 

You. Are. Frickin'. Insane.

And he won't shut the hell up about a stupid rock. 

Okay, okay. A magic stone. Whatever.

Knights, and wizards and whores, oh my!

Did the title of the post get your attention?

Wait. What?

A fellow author took my (questionable) sense of humor and created some pretty cool stuff.

I mean really. What happens when you put these three characters together? Sage sure found out.

But I'm a Princess!

My husband is Italian. Well, he says half Italian and half Sicilian, but I still say that's 100% Italian. (Now that I've over-used the word Italian, let me do it some more.) 

Though hubby is the Italian, I'm the one traveling to Italy in the near future. Go figure.

My sister and I have planned this twin trip for two years. And we're not even twins.

Hey, there's nothing wrong with typical romance covers. Who doesn't like gazing at a hot guy without a shirt on?
Now let me switch gears. I know I've talked about this before, but I really love this idea! How about an artistic/modernized romance cover? No bare-chested guy to gaze at? What the?

But I want bare-chested guys!

Book Giveaway

I often wondered about book giveaways on blogs. Do they help sales, or does one enter simply to get a free book, never to visit the blog again?

Well, I'm taking a chance on you. I'm certain once you read the first book in my Magic Stone Series, you will want to read them all. This in mind, I am offering a chance to win a copy.

Thanks to BREATHLESS PRESS and their staff of amazing editors, proofers, cover artists and more, I am thrilled with this new and improved edition, For All Time.  And there's more news! The Magic Stone series--all three books-- is accepted by Breathless Press.

Now, for book one:

"Unless you try to do something beyond what you have already mastered, you will never grow." - Ronald E. Osborn

Will I ever master my craft? Is there a key to doing so? I don't know, but no matter how much I study, I learn something new from editors.

During edits for my book, For All Time, I learned about em dashes. That being said, I'll share that bit of knowledge with fellow writers. I mean, I'm not the only one who didn't know the correct usage of em dashes. Right? *crickets chirping* Ahem...okay I'm sharing anyway.

Magical Art

Cover Art Sneak Peek!

After I received rights back from another publisher, Breathless Press acquired my Magic Stone Series. We are currently polishing  the manuscripts, extending word counts and making this series even more enjoyable.

This is the cover to book one, For All Time. 
(Release date: May 27, 2013)

 The cover artist, Victoria Miller, gave me a choice of using models or creating a modernized-artistic cover. (I was clueless as to the latter, so she explained the difference.) As you can see, I chose the modernized-artistic cover.

Romance, Reality and Suds

 Be it right or wrong,  I  expect the relationship with my husband to resemble a romance novel.
Reality tends to get in the way of my expectations.
Just the other day, I had this conversation:

Time to Kick the Bucket and Spill The Contents

We all have bucket lists, right? Okay, so maybe everyone doesn't have one written down, but I bet the majority of you out there at least have one nestled in your thoughts somewhere.
