General Basic Tuesday Stuff

Some days there isn’t enough caffeine in the world. Still, I keep on trucking here with my lovely cup of chai. I was told at Starbucks the other day that Tazo wasn’t going to make decaf chai anymore. This is seriously disturbing to me. I drink at least four cups and usually six, of chai every day. If these folks knew what I was like with too much caffeine in my body, they’d make decaf just for me.

I saw my cover for Giving Chase this morning. Hee! Scott Carpenter is amazing and I’m thrilled with it. I’ll put it up when I get the official okay to do so. They nailed Maggie. Kyle looks a bit young but he has a goatee. Thank you, Scott, for finding such an awesome picture and making sure Kyle had his goatee (I do so love men with facial hair).

Oh! Sudden Desire releases on June 9. Just heard yesterday. I’m quite happy.

I’m actually going to join the RWA at the end of this week. I know, I know. But you know, change from the inside and all that? And I’ve heard encouraging news about the revamping of the RITAs and the GH so this is good. I suppose being a voice inside is something useful. And many people I quite like are members. We’ll see.

Oh! I got a 4 star review for A Touch of Fae from RT Magazine: “The leads are well developed and come alive in this fast-paced novel. Be forewarned: The explicit sexual encounters are hot, hot, hot!” No complaints about this one!

They also said of Second Chances: “An emotional story, clever dialogue and sizzling sex make this an enjoyable story.” Overall, it was a good review but they said it was “heavy” BDSM and I disagree. It’s certainly moderate but not by any means heavy. I’d quite like a heavy BDSM book given the right storyline, I just didn’t write one. Plus, it spoils the ending. Still, I’m not really complaining, like I said, it was a good review overall (I’m just spoiled with all the stellar 5 star reviews for it, LOL)

I finally came up with a title for a book that used to be called Witches Knot but then I named the series that and had to rename the book (book four in the series). I’m not going to say what it is though, LOL, because now I’m supersitious about it. After it’s contracted I’ll tell you.

    LOL! I can’t do caffeine either. I’m like a tree frog on the ceiling.

    Excellent reviews! Looking forward to seeing your cover and “hearing” the new title for book four.

    I think it’s cool you’re joining RWA.

    Thank you, Mel! I’m always worried about RT reviews but so far it hasn’t been too very painful
