I can't believe Michael Jackson is dead

Michael Jackson died today and all I want to do is cry. I know that may sound strange, what with the scandals that haunted his career near the end. But when I was growing up, Michael was cool. His music makes me feel good. It makes me smile and brings back memories of a time when I had a whole lot less to worry about. Even on the worst days, like today, when everything turns to shit in a minute, his music can lift me up.

The King of Pop will always have a place in my heart. He will be remembered not for what he may or may not have done, but for the way his music made me feel. God bless his family in this time of need and may he rest in peace.

Something funny and a bit of good news

I've had a hard time writing lately. As some of you may know, my grandfather recently passed away. Since then I have had several other family members who have had health problems as well. Things are looking better last I heard for everyone. But, it's hard to write romance when you are concerned about things like that.

I'm just now beginning to clear my head and get back to work on that space opera of mine. Which is going quite well when I get a minute to work on it:)

I wanted to take a minute and thank everyone who has helped to make Bitten such a success. Bitten is continuing to climb over at Fictionwise and it's all thanks to you:) This is the most successful book I've written so far and despite everything else that has been going on, I am thrilled.

Now, for the something funny I promised. Watch at your own risk. LOL Here's the basic story ... Batman is here to end Joker's crime wave ... but he had too many shrooms. Hey, I said I'd been trying to clear my head, comedy helps me do that:)

New Release, Diary of an Incubus

Jewel Mathers needed a good story for her next novel. She turned to the ancient journals in desperation. But fame and fortune comes with a price … and a couple of hot vampires.

Jewel was in enough trouble after she accidentally published Vincent’s diary. But now the head of the vampire council, Alucard, wants her for himself. Her fate is in his hands. How will she ever choose between them? Especially when her life may depend on that choice.

Get your copy here:

Good news and sad

Bitten is the #3 bestseller for NCP at Fictionwise and the #1 highest rated. Plus, it's #41 in the Erotica category. Holy crap! I have never had a book do this well at Fictionwise. I am so excited. Looks like my readers and I are on the same page because I thoroughly enjoyed writing this book. Thanks so much to everyone who has helped to make Bitten such a success. I really do appreciate your support:)

This couldn't have come at a better time to cheer me up. My grandfather passed away yesterday. The funeral will be tomorrow. I'm still not sure how to react. We knew it was coming, but that doesn't make it easier. I was just so glad to have some good news to report. And yet ... it seems morbid to enjoy life sometimes when faced with the reality of death. My grandpa had already had so many strokes that he wasn't really where I could tell him about my writing career once it got started. But I know he would have been proud of me. As would all of my relatives who have already passed on. Their blood and creativity live on through me and in their own way, through our memories and DNA, they have found immortality.

Pa was a man who enjoyed life's simple pleasures and I really don't think he'd mind that I'm happy about my book sales today. Happiness is a choice and truly a simple pleasure.

Diary of an Incubus has a face

It could just be me, but I'm really loving the dark creepy feel of the background here. I really dig where they're going with the look of my books at New Concepts Publishing. I couldn't be more pleased with this:)

I also really like that Jewel (the heroine of our story) is looking at us. How cool is that?
