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?
