Blogging about corrections, color, cookies

C: Corrections, color, cookies.

Despite the fact that I’ve blogged more recently (you’re shocked, I know), I’m busy writing. I’m making revisions on a forthcoming story so my mind keeps going to that. Corrections, ugh. Yes, I too make typos. It’s part of life. So right now, I’m going through and making those corrections. The other c-topic on my mind? Color. I’ve been participating in the April event my friend puts on for the nail community, so Mainly blue. For this month, I have a lot of blue nail polish. :)

My husband likes the sweet stuff, though, so this seemed a good addition. topic.

 

(and now…cookies!)

Sorry I didn’t actually get a chance to bake any. That’s where the corrections and the writing gets in the way.

I guess I could add to this topic, my new book’s title falls in the C’s. :) *hinthint* Stay tuned for that. So…that’s my boring ole C topic this week.

Blogging about B…Books

Well, I guess I missed the sign in date But since I’ve already written these, what the hey? I’ll post them.

B) Books. I have many to choose from but I like to laugh about this (cue the Blues Brothers) I write Both kin’s of story, fantasy and romance. I also dabble in historical subjects and other things. It’s what I do. I write, therefore I am… :)

I’ve been writing forever, like I said in the last post, I don’t expect that to ever change. Not everything will become a book but I hope most will. :) We shall see. I’ve written  the Antique Magic series:

 The Artist’s Inheritance

The balance between good and evil can be an art… or a curse.

Trevor and Caitlin were once happy newlyweds, profiting from Trevor’s art. Until Trevor inherits his brother’s house, and with it, his part of a family curse. Now, Caitlin will stop at nothing to save her beloved husband from insanity and suicide, even if it means she must embrace her destiny and become a witch.

 

Caitlin’s Book of Shadows

Something terrifying stalks Caitlin and her beloved Trevor. Something the bits and pieces she left claimed she had to make sense of–or so legend says. When the curator of their collection finds Caitlin’s long forgotten diary, she wonders will it tell the whole tale? Will it tell why Caitlin seemed so determined to tell the difference between reality and nightmare even as she continued the fight to defend her family from evil? Will it explain why she thought her world twisted? If she really became a witch?

What will the holidays hold for Caitlin? Perhaps the answer lies between the lines of her story, one of lessons, struggles, and the hopes she carried like a warrior’s shield.

**This is a side (or supplemental, if you will) story in the Antique Magic series, a companion to The Artist’s Inheritance (Antique Magic, Book One).

 Drawing Down the Shades

Business can be hell…

Life is good at Starfort Collectibles until the owners, Caitlin and Trevor Fulmer, acquire a beautiful statuette with a murky past. Shortly thereafter, mysterious hauntings wreak havoc on the couple when a ghost in the attic threatens retribution. Caitlin presses her coven for help before the ghost succeeds in meting out deadly punishment–on Trevor.

And the paranormal romance pieces Passion’s Sacred Dance and Murder Upon a Midnight Clear, and I’m planning a new one, coming sometime soon. And I have others, way more…you know. Stay tuned.

As to reading books, ha. You should see my bookshelves! They’re bending.  My Kindle’s always, more or less, in use too. I read (mostly) widely, fiction, non-fiction, doesn’t matter. I’m currently reading several books on my Kindle, and I have research tomes on my couch, plus, Dark Oracle by Alayna Williams plus, Pagan Stone by Nora Roberts, which to be honest, I think she could’ve ended the series in book one. Book two (The Hollow) and three (Pagan Stone) just aren’t as compelling as Blood Brothers (Or the Key and Three Sisters Island series). I’m also looking forward to reading Clash of Wills by S.G. Rogers and Divided Allegiance by Elizabeth Moon, and…many others. So! Books. :)

A is for author and….

So as usual, I am late. It’ April, so I’ve been thinking more about the Paint it Blue for Autism, event than anything.

Best laid plans, and all. But I wrote two already so I thought I’d get posty.

 

A) Author
I am an author. I’ve been writing for damned near my whole life. I’ve been trying to get published since I was 19. (that feels like damned near my whole life). Up until last two years, self publishing was never on my radar. I was always trying to get that elusive contract. I have it now, along with several other books (*whispers* self published) and I’ve learned I actually enjoy self publishing, so I intend to do it for as long as I can. Yes, I  know we’re not supposed to (omg) talk about our authoring but that’s so silly to me. Would you tell a mother not to talk about her children? I am an author. I hope you like my…stuff. LoL

I’m also an amateur photographer. All the time, really. Sometimes I piddle with photoshop, just to see what I can do with the final pic. Like so.pinkfresco

So A…doesn’t equal multi-talented, but there you go.

 

Winner

I hope y’all had a great Valentine’s Day. Me, I spent it laid up sick. Ain’t that great? I’m telling ya, the fates have an impressive sense of humor. Valentine’s day, the day of love? No, let’s have a day in bed, afraid to move, eat, or anything thing else. *gag* Oversharing, sorry.

Anyway, that fun has put off me doing much this week, including picking the winner to my giveaway in the Love is in the Air hop. But that’s to be remedied now. Drum roll please?

Love is in the air hop winner
The winner is… Mary.

I’ll be in touch with you soon to send you the pen and ebook. Congratulations! And thank you to everyone for coming by and participating! I hope you had a lovely Valentine’s day.

Other Worlds for my otherworlds

Good evening all, I am really late in sharing this but I’ve been busy in my writing cave…(What can I say? Lately, it’s been the warmest room in the castle). But! I have also been bustling around on my Magic Tour and thanks to all the wonderful authors who’ve hosted me this last week. I very much appreciate your support, despite some of my self-made snafus! (*eep!*)

Tonight, I’m pleased to be Linda Mooney’s guest again on Other Worlds of Romance on Blog Talk Radio.

(Other worlds. Don’t you just love the name of her show? I do.)

The show starts at 11PM and I’ll be reading an excerpt from Passion’s Sacred Dance. You all know this one, I hope. :) My debut paranormal romance novel from The Wild Rose Press. If you’d like to “tune in” the show will be online at….where else? Other Worlds of Romance.

Promo jam

Yes, this promo stuff gets a mite jammed up sometimes; I’ve got two places to be today (Do I need a doppleganger? I think I do!) hehe.

Author Jerri Hines hosted my new Christmas book today. I hope you’ll and enjoy!

via Romantic Picks New Release- Murder Upon a Midnight Clear by Juli D. Revezzo.

Also I’m over at Tempting Romance talking about (what else?) Passion’s Sacred Dance.  And I was at Manic Readers talking about the Celtic myth that goes into my story and why it’s not typical. That was Thanksgiving week and I totally missed it. (eep!) You can see that one here.

Check those out too if you get a chance. I’m also trying to get some revisions done. So, busy as usual. I hope ya’ll have a great weekend!
