Cake and News!

First the news – I can announce at last that CAPTIVATED won a RT Reviewer’s Choice Award for Best Sci Fi Erotic Romance! I’m so thrilled. I loved writing the book, I loved those characters and it was something a little different for me and I’m so happy people loved it. A cool thing is UNDERCOVER won the same award for 2008 – I like that – bookends to the series.

I just sent my revision of CAKE back to my editor. CAKE is a contemporary novella that will be part of the Cosmo Red Hot Reads by Harlequin line and it’s out in September. It’s about a Seattle based manga artist who is working her way through school by working as a bike messenger and a super hot Russian immigrant multi media artist with a mowhawk, tats and piercings – oh and a reputation.

SO how about a little snippet?

She tiptoed, arching back to get more contact and he withdrew. “Patience.”

“Fuck patience. You’ve been holding yourself away from me for nearly a month. There’s only so much my hand can do. I’ll have patience the next round.”

He picked her up, spun her and plopped her down on the edge of the desk before getting to his knees. “As you command, m’lady.”

    Awesome news on Captivated…but very sad about “bookends” comment. (You know how much I want more Federation books, right? ’cause I only harp about it all the time)

    I totally agree with aztectlady!!! Didn’t you promise us books on Wilhelm and Deimos??? Obviously we aren’t the only ones who enjoyed the Federation series – so perhaps you could reconsider and plan some more ???? 🙁
