I have a lot to be thankful for: my fans, the opportunity and ability to share my stories, and most especially my family and friends. I hope all of you do, too. I’ve had a few times in my life that things looked rather bleak, but most of the time I can look around and find something to appreciate. I hope that today you can notice what’s right in your life and celebrate it. And I hope you can also brighten someone else’s life today–and every day–even if only with a smile.
All the best, and happy reading!
November is a busy month. Hot on the heels of Halloween I have ten birthdays to celebrate (including mine) and Thanksgiving. But perhaps best of all is TusCon, a three day indulgence in various forms of science-fiction, fantasy, and horror. Films, authors, art, dealers, anime, and gaming fill every moment from Friday afternoon through Sunday.
BTW, to celebrate, I’m giving away NIGHT MOVES: a Short Story Sampler over the weekend (Nov. 10-12). If you come to the convention you can pick up a physical copy, or you can download it from Amazon.
I thought this was worth sharing as a good example of writer-brain. I’ve had many a conversation with myself like this one.

In addition to my romantic fantasy and paranormal romance series I write the sensual Victorian Secret Romance series as Francesca Rose. (Some people have asked me why I used a different name for these books. I think once you read them, you’ll understand, but the short answer is because I didn’t want to mislead my fans into thinking that all of the Frankie Robertson books had the same level of sensuality.)
The idea of a romance with a Yeti came to me while I was on vacation. My writer brain started playing with the idea of how to create a story about a loving relationship with a big furry hero. Brainstorming over lunch with my husband, we designed an alternate Victorian world where Yetis live in a hidden Himalayan enclave, send diplomats to London, and sometimes serve in the East India Company Army. That conversation sparked the foundation for YETI IN THE MIST.
If you like a sensual and loving romance, I think you’ll enjoy YETI IN THE MIST. And right now you can enjoy this unusual romance for 67% off the regular price. Get your copy now and be sure to leave a review to let me know how you liked it. I look forward to hearing what you think!
Happy National Donut Day! My favorite kind of that circular sweet is a glazed old-fashioned donut. They are way too dangerous to keep around, so today I’ll offer you something just as delicious that will last a lot longer.
Today is Launch Day for GUARDIAN, Book Two in the Celestial Affairs series. Gideon is back to save a young untrained psychic from a terrible fate while trying to resist his attraction to her bewitching sister.
To celebrate, I’ve made LIGHTBRINGER, Book One in the series, FREE through tomorrow.
I hope you’ll enjoy both books and then leave an honest review on Amazon. Your reviews help me as an author, and also help other readers find new books they’ll enjoy.
And if you haven’t signed up for my newsletter yet, do that, too! You’ll be the first to know about new releases and sales AND you’ll get two Free short stories that are currently available only to subscribers. Just tap on FREE STORIES! here or in the Nav bar.
I come from a military family. My dad was a fighter pilot and career Air Force officer. My brother also served in the Air Force. My husband’s dad was in the Army, my husband in the Reserves, my godson’s dad was Navy and his brothers Marines. I live in a town where lots of former military retire and the Air Force base is a big influence on the local economy.
Despite that, I don’t think I’ve ever been to a Memorial Day parade or service. Military service was ordinary, just part of my family’s life. We never made a big deal out it. And yet when I stop to think about what those men chose to do, I realize how extraordinary and praise-worthy their choices were–and are. Some of their duty assignments were dangerous, others were supportive, but all were necessary.
I’m a little shy of saying it out loud, so I’ll say it here: I’m grateful every day for those who serve, including police and fire fighters, and I’m grateful when they come home safely.
GUARDIAN, the long-awaited sequel to LIGHTBRINGER, is now available for pre-order on Amazon!
In LIGHTBRINGER Gideon brought Jared a nearly impossible assignment. Now he faces one of his own.
When supernatural forces surround the disappearance of an untrained psychic Gideon jumps at the chance to rescue the young mortal. But to save her he must work closely with Ana, the victim’s bewitching sister, without revealing his true identity―or letting their unexpected chemistry distract him.
I’m cross promoting LIGHTBRINGER with other Paranormal Romance authors and that means you have the chance to win Free books! Just click on the graphic to enter.
Good Luck and Happy Reading!
The 9th Tucson Festival of Books is this weekend and I’m looking forward to attending. I’m only an author now because I started out as a book lover. If you’re near Tucson and love books as I do, you should think about spending at least part of the weekend on the U of A mall. It’s a fabulous event and it’s FREE!
