a good reason not to do drugs

I'm spending way to much time on the computer. Trying to finish up Rising Wind and this is what distracts me.

Christmas Shopping

Need a neat idea for a gift? Check out for really cool phone covers, etc. They come in all kinds of versions for your favorite movie, sports or pretty much whatever you want. Off to do some shopping!

Release Day

Today is release day for Shooting Star. It seems like it got here before I realized it. Maybe it just got lost in the Christmas rush. But anyway, its here! Yay!

This is by far my favorite cover. It's also my first sorta clinch cover. And even though Tess's hair is the wrong color I love it.

I'll be signing this Saturday at Borders in North Lakes Mall, Charlotte NC and next Thursday at the Fabulous New Beginnings gift shop in Rural Hall NC so if you're in the area drop by and see me.

Also giving away a great computer bag from Coldwater Creek as a contest. Drop by the website to enter

Thanksgiving is just a few days away and already my mind is in the holiday zone. Could it be because I already have my tree up? Or the Christmas CD that my niece gave me that really rocks? Or the fact that my office is covered up with wrapping paper and empty boxes and shopping bags and bows that have seen way too many Christmas mornings?

Maybe it's the wind that's howling outside and the rain thats beating against my window. I wish it was snow. But only if I already was in posession of the knee high boots and long coat that I'm supposedly getting from Lands End this year. (Actually I know I'm getting it because I ordered it myself)

All I know is Christmas is in the air. We're excited because we have a new house to experience it in. But as I go through my boxes of decorations and think of what to put where I ask myself this simple question.

How many ceramic snowmen does one person really need?

oh no!

Brittany and K-fed are over. What ever will we do? All I can say is its about time. On the other hand I am a bit upset about Ryan and Reese. It really seemed as if they tried to make it.

Do you think that perhaps the reasons why celebrity marriages don't work is because they're so used to having everything they want that they don't know what it is to work for something. And I'm not talking about celebritys that stuggled to get where they are. I'm talking about the ones who make it big while they're young and have everything handed to them on a platter.

It seems like a lot of them are searching for something. Maybe they should stop looking and appreciate whats right in front of them.

Like Ryan.

Catch up

Yes I've been slacking off on the blog. But lots of things have been going on. So I'm going to play catch up now. While in New York a few weeks back I also attended the New Jersey Romance Writers conference. What a great chapter! I loved it and realized that no matter how many books you write you can still learn something new. Thanks to Virginia Kantra who inspired me to spend all of my down time writing. Also got to see my wonderful friends and make some new ones.

Here I am with the lovely Michelle Cunnah, my roomie for the weekend, Alesia Holliday and Caridad Ferrer. And yes Caridad gives awesome karaoke. Donna Summer will never be the same for me after hearing her rendention of Last Dance.

Also want to give a shout out to my new friends Cate and Rebecca! I can't wait until we're all together again.
