TusCon is this weekend! (Nov. 10-12)

Night MovesNovember 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.

Why I Write Redux

I thought this was worth sharing as a good example of writer-brain. I’ve had many a conversation with myself like this one.

A Francesca Rose Sensual Romance at a Great Price

Yeti in the MistIn 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!

CA.Guardian_200x300Happy 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.

Honoring Those Who Serve(d)

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.

Happy Presidents’ Day! And a Free Book!

DangerousTalents2_600x900On President’s Day we honor Washington and Lincoln, two of America’s best leaders. They were men of honor, integrity, determination, and humor–characteristics I try to build into my heroes.

Lord Dahleven is that kind of hero, so to celebrate, I’ve made DANGEROUS TALENTS Free for a limited time. This is your chance to discover where the lost Vinland colony disappeared to, meet their Viking descendants, and cheer on a modern woman who finds herself in a very different world. If you’ve already read it, thank you!

You can help out by telling your friends about this sale, and by leaving an honest review on Amazon. It doesn’t have to be long, just a few sentences will do. Customer reviews really do make a difference to authors and help other readers find books they’ll enjoy.

Thank you again for subscribing to my newsletter. And stay tuned for the announcement of a new book release very soon!

Happy reading!
