Homemade trailers love ’em or hate ’em?

What do you think, are pro trailers better than homemade trailers? http://youtu.be/DKMY07cdrKg
Watch the new BLOOD AND KISSES trailer and tell me what you think!
And if you’ve read BLOOD AND KISSES stop by http://www.goodreads.com/group/show/66901-paranormal-romance-new-and-upcoming-books-authors-pnr-nauba and join in the discussion starting tomorrow August first!

Guess Whose Book is Book of the Month on Good Reads!

Yep, it’s me! I’m so excited! My novel BLOOD AND KISSES has been chosen to be a Book of the Month (BOTM) for August at the Paranormal Romance: New and Upcoming Authors/Books group on Goodreads (GR).

To celebrate, I am giving an ecopy of IN LIKE A LION to a lucky commenter on the discussion thread over the course of the month. THE CHIMERA CHRONICLES, beginning with IN LIKE A LION, are a spin off from the world of BLOOD AND KISSES and my heroine from BLOOD AND KISSES, Thalia, is in it.

Read BLOOD AND KISSES and stop by to take part of the discussion. in September, I will randomly chose a number from the discussion thread. It’s that easy!

Hope to see you there!


Help! I need a new tagline!

We interrupt my adventures at RWA to tackle a task that has been occupying my mind for some time. My tagline. These days anything more than a two line signature is annoying, so I have been going with my website address and a tagline. But my old tagline, Worlds to Dream In is a bit vague and not as evocative as I would like, so I have been using, Love in The Time of Chimeras, because I love to take movie titles and spin them. Unfortunately, I think this tagline gives the impression that my books are Historicals, which at this time, they are not. Therefore, I’m digging deep into the reading/writing ether and soliciting suggestions from all my clever internet amigos.
Here’s what my tagline needs to do. It has to be evocative, hint at what I write (shifters, vampires, spaceship captains, but not necessarily all of those) and intrigue readers enough to prompt them to look me up. That’s not much to ask is it?

Any and all suggestions considered. (But please, you, keep it clean. You know who you are.*g*)


Guess Who I Winged Chocolate at at RWA 13

Although I almost didn’t have a hotel room Tuesday night, I ended up having a blast at the conference. Luckily, Tuesday morning I called my my close friend, roomie, and Soul Mate editor extraordinaire, Debby Gilbert, and we realized I’d gotten my wires crossed (are you surprised?) and didn’t have a room in the conference hotel that night only hours before I was due to leave for the airport. I managed to secure one, but I could have done without the adrenaline rush.
I arrived at the hotel (much thanks to the fabulous Donna MacMeans for posting intricate directions on the COFW loop for those of us taking the MARTA from the airport) Wednesday was the literacy signing.
I as expected, I didn’t sell out, but I had a blast talking to everyone. Mostly thanks to Ranger, whose pic I had up on my IPad as an icebreaker.20130722-162933.jpg
I was up against the windows at the end of the aisle, so I didn’t get that much traffic, but Maggie Shayne was across from me and when her line got long, I’d say, “Hey, if you like Maggie Shayne’s books you might like mine.:-)
She was a good sport and when things got a little slow and she got hungry, I chucked some Hershey’s nuggets across the aisle like it was Mardi Gras. She’s a good catcher.:-)
There is more to share from RWA, but that will have to come in a later installment.

Did you have any adventures this weekend? Who did you meet? Where did you eat? Did you throw candy at anyone?
