A Lazy Black Friday

I stayed home all day today, avoiding crowds, fights and people driving stupid. I've actually been over at Amazon looking at the deals and I have a couple of movies in my shopping cart. That is the extent of my Black Friday shopping this year.

I wish I could say I had a lazy day but I got started organizing and deleting files in my computer. It actually took all day to go through picture files and then document files. I made new folders and reorganized a lot of stuff. I had photos and documents I had forgotten all about.

There's nothing like getting stuff organized. I've worked on my house for the past couple of weeks, getting rid of clutter and excess. Things are looking pretty good right now and it will probably stay good through the winter. Over the past year, I've made an effort not to buy anything that wasn't necessary because I already have a houseful of stuff, plus a storage shed that's full, too.

I plan to get started on the final revision of my next book, a contemporary romance, which I hope to have finished by January. Then, I'm going to begin Rafe and Simone's story, To Lose a Lady, and I know that is going to be exciting. I can't wait!

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and Black Friday! Now for Christmas...

Weekend Writing Warriors Nov 23: To Save a Lady #3

It's time for Weekend Writing Warrior (http://www.wewriwa.com/). This week's snippet is from my new release, To Save a Lady, a historical romance set in New Orleans.

For this weekend, I'm posting some description of the courtyard where Elise and Jesse meet. (I just love courtyards!)


The abandoned townhouse was built flush against the raised wood of the banquette. There were no front lawn vistas in the French Quarter. The Creoles preferred the privacy of their rear courtyards, and a deserted courtyard was a perfect place for secret meetings and impossible dreams.
      The wrought-iron gate creaked as she entered the carriageway.
     At the end of the dark tunnel was a moonlit archway. A wispy fog floated through the spiky foliage of palmettos, elephant ears, and fig trees growing in the west corner of the courtyard.
     Crepe myrtles and azaleas were in hibernation, and moss covered the dormant fountain, its basin filled with murky rainwater. A couple of late roses still clung to life in the cold.


To Save a Lady is a romantic novel about courage, loyalty, and what you're willing to sacrifice for those you love. It takes place when the city is threatened by war and the stakes are high. Captain Jesse Cross has some doubts about his survival as the outnumbered American army will face great odds in battle. But his greatest battle is one of the heart when he falls for a French girl who is cloaked in mystery. In a desperate attempt to save her mistress, lady's maid Elise Plaisance becomes involved in a dangerous masquerade, and she stands to lose everything if she doesn't succeed. Yet how can she prevail when the man who has stolen her heart is determined to stop her? (She does have a tendency to pig out on pralines when she's nervous. Just so you know there are lighter moments.)

Giveaway: In To Save a Lady, Jesse gives Elise a fleur de lis necklace on December 23rd, so I am going to do a drawing from my newsletter subscribers on the 23rd of December for a fleur de lis necklace. I'm still trying to get a good photo of it. Subscribe to my newsletter to be entered in the drawing.

MFRW Book Hooks Hop: The Yard Sale


Welcome to this week's MFRW hop where you can read snippets from some great stories! 

Recently, I've done a lot of posts on my historical romance, so this week I wanted a change and decided to do a little snippet from one of my short stories, "The Yard Sale." (It does end with a budding romance among other things.)

           As Early Birds continued to make purchases, I took in bills, gave back change, and I did each transaction with a big smile. But, to be honest, this yard sale was the culmination of my shattered life.
Amid the possessions I had for sale were wedding gifts, vacation souvenirs, and birthday presents from Clint. The past seven years of my failed marriage surrounded me. Orange price stickers proclaimed its worth. My belongings had become a corpse and the yard sale, a funeral.

Looking for humor with a happy ending?

Then, come on down to Clayburn, Mississippi, where Jennifer Riley is having a yard sale. She needs cash fast. She's lost her job, her house, and her husband has run off with another woman. From Early Birds to Prince Charming, Jennifer meets a host of quirky customers, and by the close of her sale, her life has been changed forever.

Jennifer's tips for having an extraordinary yard sale:

* Early Birds do arrive at dawn, so be ready.
* Stand up to Tightwads. How can someone ask you if you'll take less than a quarter? Seriously.
* Show some love for Packrats because they'll buy anything.
* Try not to make a fool of yourself when Prince Charming arrives.
* Most importantly, realize some things have a value greater than money.

Meet Debbie Herbert and her Mermaid Series!

Hi everyone! Today my guest is Debbie Herbert! She's a fellow Southerner, Alabama fan, and writer of mermaid romance. 

Thanks for having me here today, Pat! It’s been a busy week – book revisions due on one book and then – boom! – release day for another. But isn’t that the way it is for all writers? You could very well say that about any job. As soon as one deadline is met, another looms over your head. 
But I love writing and wouldn’t have it any other way. 
I thought I would round up some of the most common answers I get when people read my books or hear I write paranormal romance.

What am I working on?

I just finished the last book of my Dark Seas trilogy, published by Harlequin Nocturne.  Book two, Siren’s Treasure, was released Saturday and my last one, Siren’s Call, is scheduled for 2015. The books follow the lives of a secret mermaid clan that live deep in an Alabama bayou.

Currently, I’m writing chapter one of a fourth Harlequin book that will be a spin off from a character introduced in Siren’s Call.  Annie is the granddaughter of the mysterious witch Tia Henrietta.  She’s retreated to Bayou La Siryna to ask her grandmother for help in stopping the music she hears from other people’s auras. I’ve incorporated a Choctaw story of evil spirits that roam the south Alabama bayou and the hero in the book is a shadow/spirit hunter. 

How does my work differ from others of its genre?

My mermaid romances aren’t the usual sweet fantasy mermaids that are caricatures of the Disney ilk.  If I had to describe them in three words: Mermaids, Murder, Mayhem.

Most paranormal seems to be centered around vampires and werewolves, so choosing mermaids as a subject was a bit of a risk.  But, as every writer will tell you, the subject chose me, not the other way around!

Why do I write what I do?

I love paranormal romance – the idea that hidden worlds are just beyond our vision and comprehension.  And I love when characters, after trials and tribulations of course, earn their happily-ever-afters.

How does my writing process work?

I like to start with what I call the Big Premise idea.  From there, I develop characters to fit the plot and then storyboard the book’s chapters.  I’m somewhere between a pantser and a plotter – I make chapter notes, but usually end up not following them! 
I’d love to hear from other writers and readers.  Why do you like to read paranormal romance?  Why do you write the type of books that you do?
Again, many thanks to the fabulous Patricia Preston and much success on her just-rleased book.  Can’t wait to start reading it!

The Hunt for Red October meets paranormal as an FBI agent tries to prevent mermaid Jet Bosarge from becoming used by modern-day pirates attempting to locate the missing hydrogen bomb lost near Tybee Island, Georgia.  Can they work together and trust one another with their secrets?
Blurb
Mermaid Jet Bosarge should know better than to trust Perry.  He's charming and sexy and accepts her shapeshifting lifestyle, but he's used and betrayed her once before.  When modern-day pirates approach Perry and offer him a fortune to help recover a jettisoned H-bomb off the coast of Tybee, Island, Georgia--will he betray her again for a chance at the Ultimate Haul?
FBI Agent Landry Fields is interested in Jet's tax records as part of an investigation in an illegal maritime excavation ring.  Getting involved with her could ruin his career.  Besides, after the drama when his old girlfriend mysteriously disappeared years ago, Landry is more cautious than ever about falling for someone. 
In navigating between her two worlds, Jet must decide which man is her enemy and who might be her true love.  If she makes the wrong choice, the entire mermaid civilization is in danger of exposure and extinction.


I am so glad to have Debbie over today! And, I LOVE that cover! Let me know what you think of it.

Weekend Writing Warriors Nov 16: To Save a Lady

It's time for Weekend Writing Warrior (http://www.wewriwa.com/). This week's snippet is from my new release, To Save a Lady, a historical romance set in New Orleans.

Set up:  Elise, a lady's maid, is considering her ill-fated attraction to Jesse.

       He was a tall man with a rough, battle-weary face and a sinewy body.
A man that made her swoon. That was a very bad thing, according to Colette, who claimed such men were always trouble.
Was that true? She would love to find out, but she knew her limitations.
“Capitaine.” She greeted him and dropped into a polite curtsy.
She had no illusions when it came to him. During their brief encounters, Jesse had been forthcoming about himself, and he had spoken of living the kind of life she had never known. 


 A DARING MASQUERADE
A move from Paris to New Orleans brings disaster to Elise Plaisance’s predictable life as a lady’s maid. The son of her grief-stricken mistress disappears, and Elise is drawn into a dangerous web of espionage and deceit when she turns to a devious gentleman for help. 
A CAPTAIN BEWITCHED
Captain Jesse Cross doesn’t fancy himself as a lovelorn soldier desperate for a woman until a mysterious French spy captivates his imagination. Their romance is a frail illusion, born in the darkness of a moonlit courtyard and never meant to last forever.
A FUTURE IMPERILED
The enemy strikes. Both on the battlefield and in the Quarter. Torn between loyalty and love, Elise must risk everything to rescue her mistress’s son before all is lost. Jesse knows he has to stop her even if it means sacrificing his honor as well as his life to save a lady.

You can click on the French Quarter Brides tab on this blog to read an excerpt from Chapter 1.

Meet Melissa Snark and Vote for Battle Cry

Hello! My name is Melissa Snark, and I'm a fantasy and romance author. If I could have a moment of your time, I'd like to ask for your help as a reader. Please consider nominating my Norse folklore fantasy novel Battle Cry on Kindle Scout.

Amazon's new publishing program is called Kindle Scout, an innovative platform that provides readers with a sneak peek at unreleased books as well as the opportunity to have a say in what gets chosen. The timing of Scout was amazing. The announcement came just as I neared completion of my novel. The terms being offered are attractive. As a publisher, Amazon has as much clout as one of the traditional publishers. This simply seemed like too good of an opportunity to pass on, so I submitted Battle Cry for consideration.

Per the FAQ: How does Kindle Scout benefit readers?
Kindle Scout readers get to preview new, never-before-published books and influence which ones are made available to millions of readers on Amazon.
In addition, any time a reader's nomination gets published, they will receive a free copy.


I appreciate your support! To nominate Battle Cry, you only need to be logged into your Amazon account. You can head over to the Kindle Scout website and view Battle Cry's profile page. If you like what you see, please consider voting for Battle Cry. Thank you so much!


Survival demands sacrifices; healing requires forgiveness.

Men revere him; monsters fear him. Jake Barrett, the notorious Hunter King, values loyalty to family and followers above all else. When the daughter of his closest ally murders Daniel, his oldest son, it sets off a chain reaction of violence and destruction that claims the lives of both wolves and hunters. Determined to avenge his son, Jake seeks the truth at any cost.

After losing her lover and then her mate, Victoria Storm simply wants to get on with building a new life in Sierra Pines, California. A vengeful Jake Barrett and his organization aren't going to make that easy, especially with the unwelcome attraction between her and the Hunter King's second son. Perils beyond the mortal coil plague Victoria.

When the Norse Fates predict Victoria will destroy the world, her duties as a priestess of Freya come into conflict with her responsibilities as a Valkyrie of Odin. When they tell her she will do it to save her unborn child, she's not so sure they are wrong.

Sawyer Barrett has been trying to kill Victoria for so long, he doesn't know whether he loves her or hates her. Desperate to end the war, he's willing to take chances with everything–except his heart. The hunter harbors a deadly secret he can't reveal without risking the ceasefire and his life.

At Sawyer's urging, Victoria agrees to peace talks with Jake. All the while, an ancient vampire plots the destruction of wolves and hunters alike. If the embittered rivalry between hunters and wolves doesn't end—and fast—there is no hope for Victoria's pack... or for their world.

Short excerpt (PG):

Shade enshrouded Skuld, and her voice manifested upon the air, thick and oppressive, closing in from all sides. "Your daughter will not grow to adulthood in Midgard."
Victoria's heart slammed against her breastbone. Her breath expelled in a horrified gust. The bowl dropped from her hands and flew to protect her abdomen. "What do you mean?"
"Your daughter will be taken from you on the eve of her third birthday," Skuld said. "The one you trust most, a member of your own pack, will give the child over to your greatest enemy."
A growl trembled in Victoria's throat, and her entire body shook under the dual assault of fear and rage. The suggestion of betrayal from within her own pack filled her with disbelief to the core of her being. It was unthinkable. Gritting her teeth, she sought a solution, refusing to dwell on it. "How am I to prevent this?"
"We speak of what will come to pass," Verðandi said in a sympathetic tone.
"Your predictions are not carved in stone," Victoria said. Arguing with Fate was a foolish endeavor, but she refused to accept their prophecy.
The old woman, Urðr, smiled with a frightening gleam in her eyes. "Predictions, carved into the trunk of the World Tree, carved into the spiritual fabric of the world."
Stubborn determination settled over Victoria like armor. Her mother had taught her there was no absolute fate, just as there was no absolute free will. Life consisted of a wide range of possibilities between the two extremes. She refused to allow her daughter to die at three years of age. She would move worlds, alter fate, slay gods.
Whatever it took.
"Do you wish to save your child?" Skuld asked.
Victoria answered without thought. "Yes. I'll do anything. Tell me. Please."
"The final days are upon us," Verðandi said.
Skuld took over speaking. "To save your daughter, you will side with Loki against the Aesir. You will use your enchanted dagger to cut the binding of the great wolf Fenrir. You will be responsible for freeing the beast that kills Odin."
Victoria's stomach turned. Her head shook in automatic denial. "When the gods imprisoned Fenrir, my people pledged fealty to the Aesir. We have served them loyally ever since. Even when we were driven from the homeland, almost a millennium ago, we remained faithful. I will never cut Fenrir's bonds. To do so would end the world we live in and doom us all."
Skuld's gaze held steady. "You will."
Victoria snarled her denial. "No. I will never become the servant of the Trickster or willingly take part in bringing about Odin's death."
Skuld turned her head and pinned Victoria with one black eye that rolled in its socket like a liquid marble. "To save your daughter, you will."

#MFRW Book Hooks Wednesday: To Save a Lady: Bonnard's Invitation



Welcome to my post for MFRW Book Hooks Wednesday. This snippet is from my newest historical romance, To Save a Lady, set during the Battle of New Orleans.


This snippet features Captain Jesse Cross (the hero) and his cousin, Lt. Bonnard Reid. Bonnard is trying to convince Jesse, who is enamored with a mysterious masked spy, to go with him to a whorehouse.




       “What about tonight? A couple of Miss Joy’s girls have no teeth and bottomless throats.”
“I already have plans.”
“And they, no doubt, involve a masked woman.” Bonnard reached for the doorknob. “Your desperation amazes me, Captain.”
Hours later, when Jesse braved the wet, winter evening, he knew Bonnard was right. Only a desperate man would be out tonight, rushing to meet with a woman whose face he’d never seen.


To Save a Lady is a romantic novel about courage, loyalty, and what you're willing to sacrifice for those you love. It takes place when New Orleans is threatened by war in December 1814, and the stakes are high. Captain Jesse Cross has some doubts about his survival, as the outnumbered American army will face great odds in battle. But his greatest battle is one of the heart when he falls for a French girl who is cloaked in mystery. In a desperate attempt to save her mistress, lady's maid Elise Plaisance becomes involved in a dangerous masquerade, and she stands to lose everything if she doesn't succeed. Yet, how can she prevail when the man she loves is determined to stop her? (She does have a tendency to pig out on pralines when she's nervous. Just so you know there are lighter moments.)

To Save a Lady is Book One of the French Quarter Brides series. It's a mainstream historical. Heat level: warm. Occasional strong language and some lust going on! Jesse and Elise promise to keep you turning pages during a cold winter night!

The Last Days of Autumn


Here is what autumn looks like in my part of the country today. It was a warm, sunny day and I got out on the road. As you can see, there was practically no traffic so it was easy to stop and take pictures along the way.

Winter is heading our way later this week and by next week, most all the leaves will be gone. It will be time to settle in for the cold. That's not all bad. There are a few things I look forward to in cold weather. Such as making hot cocoa. I also love to burn candles. This past weekend I put out candles in the house because I like the glow and the warmth they produce. And, winter is always a great time to get caught up on reading and I've got a ton of books in my Kindle. Plus, I have a couple of books I need to get finished up.

It's looking like winter will be a busy time! But I'll make time for fun, too.

Weekend Writing Warriors: To Save A Lady #1

Excited to be joining the Weekend Writing Warrior (http://www.wewriwa.com/) this weekend. This week's snippet is from my new release is from Book One of my French Quarter Brides series, To Save a Lady. 

Set up: From Chapter 1, this is a snippet from when Captain Jesse Cross is approached by a mysterious masked woman at midnight in the French Quarter of New Orleans, 1814

The seductive scent of flowers and musk intoxicated him. Like her face, her body was hidden. It was all shadows and secrets beneath the cloak except for the flirty mask with its twinkling gems, but his imagination pictured her as a beautiful woman. Nude, of course.
“I am your liaison.” Her sensual voice was a mere whisper carried in the wind.   
"Liaison?" The implication was so intimate that it aroused him.


Blurb:
A DARING MASQUERADE
A move from Paris to New Orleans brings disaster to Elise Plaisance’s predictable life as a lady’s maid. The son of her grief-stricken mistress disappears, and Elise is drawn into a dangerous web of espionage and deceit as the threat of war divides the city.

Captain Jesse Cross doesn’t fancy himself as a lovelorn soldier desperate for a woman until a mysterious French spy captivates his imagination. Their romance is a frail illusion, born in the darkness of a moonlit courtyard and never meant to last forever.

Enjoying Autumn


I wanted to share a photograph I took at Baker's Bluff on the Natchez Trace a week or so ago. This is near the Nashville area. I love the landscape of this area and plan to use it as a setting for a fictional town, Lafayette Falls, where my contemporary romance series is going to be set.

I just love this part of the country and I'm definitely a person who loves hills and meadows. I have been taking short trips this fall to take photos and simply enjoying the beauty of nature this year. I love driving on country roads in the fall. I am planning on creating a page for my photographs and hoped to have it linked to my blog soon.

I hope everyone has a great weekend! It's almost Turkey Day!

Book Spotlight: Dream Vacation by JJ DiBenedetto

Today my guest is paranormal/fantasy writer, JJ DiBenedetto, who is releasing the eight book of his Dream series. His fans would swear he's got a sixth sense when it comes to seeing into the minds of others and often wonder if his stories could possibly be fiction. He enjoys suspending disbelief with suspenseful paranormal tales that are a perfect blend of reality meets fantasy.
His popular Dream Series continues to delight readers with each and every exciting installment.
Born in Yonkers, New York, he currently resides in Arlington Virginia with his beautiful wife and a cat he is sure has taken full advantage of its nine lives. When it comes to the cat, he often wonders, but then again it might just be his imagination.
  About the Dream Series
What if you could see everyone else’s dreams?  That’s the question Sara has to wrestle with in the Dream Series.  We first meet her as a shy, bookish college student who doesn’t think there’s anything extraordinary about herself.  And then the dreams start…
Over the course of the series, Sara learns to live with these supernatural dreams and all the trouble they plunge her into.  At the same time, she grows from a student to a practicing doctor; and from a single girl to a wife and mother.  But every time she thinks she’s got everything figured out, life – and her extraordinary dreams – teach her that she’s always got more to learn…





About Dream Vacation (book 8 in the Dream Series)

Thanks to her unique ability to step into other people's dreams, Dr. Sara Alderson has solved murders, unraveled conspiracies and saved lives. But when a crisis hits close to home, even her supernatural gift might not be enough to avert disaster.
On a family vacation to Paris, Sara's fifteen-year-old daughter Grace disappears without a trace. The only way to find her is through Sara's dreams. But her gift has taken an unwanted vacation, and without it, Sara has no idea how to rescue Grace. In a foreign city, with no clues, and her dreaming talent failing her for the first time, Sara must figure out another way to find Grace before it's too late.
Dream Vacation is the eighth book of the Dream Series


Excerpt

      Three AM.  Why is it always three AM with these dreams?
     “Who was it?”  He doesn’t need to ask why I’m awake and muttering at three – sorry, 3:01 AM, now.  All he needs is the details.
      “Grace,” I say.  He stares at me, his eyes asking a question.  I hold his eyes, shrugging apologetically, and he’s got his answer.  A whole conversation in five seconds and one word – I guess that’s what happens after almost fourteen years of marriage.
      “You were going to tell me last night, weren’t you?”
       I was.  But when I walked into the bedroom and saw him lying there, just waiting for me – well, what was I supposed to do?
       I scoot up next to him, smile, and trace a finger the whole length of his scar.  It really isn’t that bad.  I did about as well as anyone could have when I operated on him, considering the circumstances.  If I’d had more time to prepare, or a full surgical team, or the right facilities, there might not be a visible scar at all.  But I didn’t – and if I hadn’t operated when I did, in the middle of that horrible storm a year and a half ago, I might not have a husband now. 
       He doesn’t mind the scar, and, anyway, it’s just something we have in common now.  I still have the old scar from my appendectomy, so we match.  His finger goes to it now, and I shudder a little at his touch.  Just like always.  “What can I say?  I just can’t resist you.”  
       “I get that,” he says, with a wicked grin.  “And you didn’t tell me beforehand because…?”
       He knows perfectly well why.  “You can’t keep a secret.  I mean, you can at work, I know that.  But not with me, or the kids.” 
       He starts to shake his head, but I glare at him, and he sighs heavily.  “I admit it,” he says finally.         It’s the same reason that, when we want to really surprise one of the kids on their birthday, I handle everything.  Brian and I agree on a dollar amount and a general idea, but I buy the actual gift myself, and he doesn’t see it until it’s unwrapped.
