Something Wicked

Yesterday I finished reading Something Wicked by Evelyn Vaughn - a silhouette bombshell. It rocked! Great story, great plot etc but what I found wonderful was the descriptions of the locations because the author has been to them all. It was wonderful. The other thing I loved was the magic. yes some of the spell casting was exagerated but the essence of wicca was very accurate.

I should give a blurb for it huh?

Kate Trillo is a non-practicing witch. But when she walks in on a man killing her sister, she casts a curse on him, and inadvertantly herself as well. The problem is that she cursed the wrong man, the killer's identical twin brother. Now she has to fulfill her destiny and find the Hekate grail if she wants to lift the curse.

A really awesome book.

Dreary days should be good writing days

but they aren't. I'm sitting here staring out the window while my kids go bonkers from bordom.

I'm closing in on the end of my proposal for the Samhain anthology and on an article for Suite but alas, my shape shifter novella is lagging.

With summer coming, my thoughts turn to camping and being outside, which is why I'm anxious to get back to my hape shifter story since it takes place in Algonquin Park. Can't wait to get out in the canoe...

off to dream of a wilderness escape...wait...there's no power...no laptop! eek! writing with a pen and paper!

Can April get any more crazy?

Yikes! I can't believe April is almost over and I have sooooo much stuff to do still! The weather has been just spectacular and I haven't wanted to sit inside at the computer.

I really should be working.

Ok, I know I don't get too much traffic on this blog, but I have a question. Readers- if you join a yahoo loop, what kinds of things do you like and what do you dislike? What would you like to see?

Back to work....zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Congrats to Kim and Merris!

Two of my friends have new releases and I just wanted to be sure to blog about it.

Merris Hawk's Truth or Dare came out on April 8th from Silk's Vault www.silksvault.com

Kim Rees' The Billionaire's Seduction came out today from Triskelion www.triskelionpublishing.com

there...see I can remember to do stuff. Eventually.

Still waiting on word on Atlantis....

I'm working on a proposal for a short story which I'm calling 7 days to darkness...an alternate history with Richard the Lionheart as a secondary character. I only hope it doesn't get crazy long and out of control because there is a very definate limit on word length.

Oh, and in non-writing news...we got two baby guinea pigs. Potter and Weasely are the newest additions to our little family.

Atlantis is finished!!!!

finally! This story was written as part of a group effort where we all took a myth and made a story that sort of sits on the periphery or turns the myth on it's head. I chose Atlantis.

The premise of my story came from watching WAY too many of those documentaries that speculate where Atlantis could be. I thought...hmmmm why not make it all of them? What if Atlantis was a magical island, a faerie island? So that's what this is about. Atlantis is a vault for dangerous artifacts (think ark of the covenant, pandora's box etc) and the faeries of the light court are guarding them. They faked their own destruction (many times) when humans came too close to discovering the island. Of course it ended up becoming a huge party, and things would get way out of control which is why the island was moved to the bermuda triangle (and became the source of all the disappearances there)

But that's all back story *grin*

Hopefully I'll be submitting in on Monday, so I'll keep you posted.

It's gone now but....

I'm so bad. I should have blogged about this when it was still up...but oh well.

Dragon's Birth was #5 on Fictionwise's highest rated recently released ebooks. That put me above 2 of mercedes lackey's books! Crazyness!

In other news, I sold another story...but it's under another name....sorry...gotta prevent family members from having heart attacks. :-P

falling behind on posting again!

yep, I'm really bad at this. So much is going on and I keep forgetting to blog about it all.

So...what's new?

let's see first of all, Dragon's Birth is #5 on fictionwise's highest rated ebooks (added in the last 30 days) above 2 of mercedes Lackey's books.

I've subbed another piece...but it's under a different name so I can't say much without blowing my cover.

Currently I'm working on finishing up Moving Atlantis which is SOOOOOOO almost done, and working on a proposal for a project at samhain.

Hope everyone is having a faboo day!
