There are three states of matter : gases, liquids and solids. In many cases, the same element can exist in all three states.
And something completely different.I saw the bottle cap challenge the other day and couldn't believe it. But here's proof...

An extra kick.

Roundhouse drinks on her!

3T Writing Tidbit

 How to write a character that will make your editor cheer! I shared this last year, but it bears repeating.

Direct from the awesome editor of New York Times and USA Today bestselling books. Stacy Dawn tackles the mystery of deep point of view in a reveal-all that's a must-read. Check it out here.

Published since 2009, over the years I've accumulated various items of writing wisdom. The Third Tuesday Writing Tidbit showcases these items in no particular order. Click here to see all 3T Tidbits

2T Repeat Performance

In December 2016, the lovely Magical Musings crew decided it was time to close down their blogging shop. I had three wonderful years with them. This is another of those posts.

Sampling the New Year--originally posted January 6, 2016.

Happy New Year! We have a rule around our house, one we started when it took us three years to get our home decluttered enough to put it on the market. If something comes in, something else has to go out.

That's one of the best things about the start of a new year, in my opinion, the idea of going through the portal--starting afresh, sloughing off the old to prepare for the new.

But sometimes the old thing is perfectly good. All it needs is a fresh coat of paint or a little oil. In that case, I'm not afraid of a little spit and polish.

But what if we could have the best of both worlds? How about something good with a bit of new shine PLUS added new goodies? PLUS all of it for only 71 cents?

1T Status Update - July

Four months to go! Night's Kiss is going to be in edits this month, perfect timing as I'm also beginning the proposal for Night's Bliss, Elias's story. I can't wait to finally bring this all together and get it in your hands!

This month:
  • Chicago's Chosen: Vampire Vignettes ready to go
  • Detect This: Vampire Vignettes (working title) first draft done, along with two edits. Title coming soon
  • New cover for Falling on for the Billionaire
  • Cover reveals below!


Vampire Vignettes

Vignette: a short, delicately memorable scene.

Short. Scintillating. First, exciting meets between an apex master vampire and the human woman who lights his life for the first time in centuries. Each story features a vampire master of the city and the woman who charms (or fights or snarks) her way into his life.

Chicago's Chosen

New to Chicago and tottering on the brink of bankruptcy, human Adele wants a job with Knight Industries, owned by rich vampire and city master Damien Knight. So when a not-quite-aboveboard invite for a party at Knight’s place comes from her best friend, she jumps on it.

But a dark, mysterious vampire at the party catches her in a fib. He’s about to throw her out when she brazenly asks for a tour of Knight’s business first. To her surprise, he agrees and takes her away from the noise of the party. On the plus side, she’ll get to see Knight Industries and maybe learn enough to get her coveted job. On the minus, she’s all alone with a dangerous predator, and he’s looking intently at her neck…

And what’s she going to do when she finds out who her tour guide really is?

MJ Chase: Pen name for more moderate language and slow, simmering buildup.

Falling (on) ^for the Billionaire
A sexy romantic comedy

Can tripping over your own feet lead to falling in love?

He’s a billionaire media superstar hungering for more than meaningless celebrity dates. She’s a junior college teacher who loves him from afar—until she’s roped into playing wingman for her international-model sister, who's trying to win him back.
