The Hour Between the Years
Round the dial the shadows run
To trace the path of solstice sun
'Fore shadows claim the dial entire
And new moon climbs to heaven's spire.
This day, the shortest of the year

But in the hour when seasons turn
That hour when blue candles… Continue

I am writing to wish you all a very happy New Year.
I am happy to let you know that The Substitute Bride will be the No. 1 best seller at Whiskey Creek Press for January. This book - an historical romantic suspense - was such a joy to write. It is great to start the New Year with such good news.
Kind regards and best wishes,

A number of people have contacted me after my previous blog post 'A Late Plea for Votes' to inform me that the link to the New Covey Cover Awards led them to a Biblical site that has nothing to do with the awards. Why this should be so I have no idea and must apologize to those who have gone to the trouble to try and place a vote for my cover of 'The Nemesis Cell' in this month's awards.
I've checked the link myself and teh onformation contained… Continue

I received a wonderful Christmas Present on Christmas Eve. My RWA Chapter hosts a contest entitled Southern Heat. I submitted my ten pages and five page synopsis following the requirements in the fall. The contest coordinator notified me around the end of November or first of December, that I was a finalist. I never dreamed I would make it that far. Then she called me on Dec 24, 2008 and told me check my email. When I did it notified me that I had won the historical category. AND the judge… Continue

When I sent my books off to our winners, I didn't expect to hear back from them. But, actually, they all sent me very kind words of thanks. Wasn't that sweet? Then today, Terri Armstrong sent me this beautiful review as well. Of course, I just have to share it with all of you.

I'm thrilled with my first book cover! This is for my contemporary erotic romance novella, Kilted Lover. :-)
When kilted caber-tosser Scott MacPherson tosses Leslie Livingston over his shoulder to rescue her from two armed thieves trying to steal her priceless amulet, they are thrust into a deadly but sexy adventure. Though Leslie already has a lukewarm, uninterested boyfriend, her attraction to Scott is white-hot and undeniable. She wants to… Continue
