Post-Irene Monday

Well, I’ve got plenty of water to take up to camp and I won’t run out of batteries any time soon. Our cable and internet went out yesterday but they’re back this morning and, considering how many of my fellow East Coasters are waking up to devastation, I’m certainly not going to complain about missing Big Brother. The videos this morning of what happened to Vermont and New York break my heart. So much destruction. Towns destroyed, lives lost and … Read More »

Wicked Games by Jill Myles

Wicked GamesWicked Games by Jill Myles
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
If you’re looking for good self-published romances and/or you’re a Survivor fan, I highly recommend Wicked Games by Jill Myles. It was my Tropical Storm Irene read and I really enjoyed it. The heroine gets sucked into doing a Survivor-esque reality show and it’s a fun, fast, sexy read. Usually I avoid first-person but in Wicked Games it worked for me, especially with the quotes from the hero opening … Read More »

Mini versus Irene

I enjoyed reading the suggestions for Mary’s maiden name so much. And some of them even made me a little sniffly. I love family names. … Read More »

The Not-So-Super-Secret Kowalski Project of Doom (and a contest)

In my after-hours, I’ve been working away on the SSKPoD (Super Secret Kowalski Project of Doom). I’ve also mentioned it on Twitter. So what is it?

It’s a short story (free read). (I don’t think it’s going to quite hit novella length, but you never know. The Kowalskis love to talk.) During the crazy DABWAHA voting I offered to, as a bribe, write the having-the-baby epilogue for Joe and Keri (Exclusively Yours). Their daughter was born between Undeniably Read More »
