LET'S GET THIS PARTY STARTED!To party-cipate in the upcoming events, visit our Facebook Event page, where all the stuff is goin’ down! I’ll be announcing the prizes and things you can do to join in on all the fun. We’ll be posting HOT guys in kilts, HOT shifters, and anything else crazy we want to do! It will be for the full month of September and if we’re still having fun, it will go on through to Halloween!!! WOO HOOOO!!!!

September 15th is the BIG Day!

Though we’ll be posting all month long, the BIG day of partying will be September 15th – that is the first day of the Character Reveal Tour. That will be the kick off for the HUGE book tour I’m doing. I’m having a CHARACTER REVEAL TOUR!! On the FB event page, we’ll be posting giveaways and pictures of hot guys and gals, but we’ll also be posting links to the participating blogs where MORE giveaways are happening. (Incidentally, on September 19th, which is Talk Like a Pirate Day) we’ll be posting pictures of HOT pirates!!) You don’t want to miss out on this tour. My characters are all making appearances!!

  • Wanna flirt with Broderick MacDougal?
  • Perhaps ask Davina some questions? If you’re a guy, you’re welcome to flirt with her, but you might have a pretty angry vampire on your ass if you do!
  • Why not ask Amice or Veronique about what happened to Monique?
  • Cailin, James, Cordelia, Malloren, Amice, Veronique, Rosselyn and Nicabar will all be chatting with readers on the days they’re featured.

And I’m introducing new characters from Midnight Eclipse – Celina Hunter (Davina in 1734), her sexy brothers Jericho & Chandler – all three of which are shifters! Jerry is heterosexual, but Chandler is gay…so there fun to be had for EVERYONE!

collectorcard-2.5inx3.5in-h-frontAND we have Jericho’s hot best friend, Peter Lund…6’8′ tall, about 3′ wide of solid muscle and hair like spun gold! GAWD I have a weak spot for blonds (hint: my husband is blond). He’s a feisty shifter I think you’ll all LOVE and he saves the day in Book 4!! (Oops…spoiler!) Here’s a sneak peek of him and his wolf form.

Anyway, if you’d like to participate in the blog tours and host some of my characters – heck you can host them ALL if you’d like…the more the merrier! – then click on the links below to sign up! Tours are courtesy of the FABULOUS Literati Author Services. LOVE these guys!!!!

Can’t wait to see you all there!!!!

Summer Scorcher Blog Tour – Week 6 – The Perfect Hero

Welcome to part two of my blog post on the Scorcher Blog Tour.
If you missed part one, please go here: http://findingthewritewords.blogspot.com

Thank you, Arial, for hosting me on your site!

In my last post we were about to breakdown our perfect hero into sections. But before we do that, we need to welcome our five heroes into the room. They’ve graciously allowed us to perform a little experimentation.

Let’s start with our hero’s personality. His personality must shine. AJ, Lisa, Arial, and Sarah like their hero with a good sense of humour, patient, committed, and good natured. While Amie likes a hero who doesn’t take himself too seriously. Amie wants her hero to let her show him how it’s really done. Amie, you naughty little girl! Continue reading

May Give-Away!

EDIT: I’ve added something new to the contest – for everyone person who enters the contest, I’ll donate 50 cents* to the needy pet organization Petsmart uses for charity. Money will be donated at my next trip to Petsmart.

This is my first month of give-aways and I thought it might be neat to pick from the List of Commemorative Months I found on Wikipedia and use that as the themes for my monthly give-aways. The list is HUGE, so I have a lot to choose from. However, I also need to match this list with the goodies I received from the Romantic Times Book Lover’s Convention. As a side note, some of the commemorative themes were really off the wall or things I just could not support. Such as…
–National Egg Month. :
–National Salad Month
–National Do Not Eat Cheese Before Noon Month…I kid you not and there is NOOOO way I could support that!

Some I could get behind 100% and there are a little too many to mention (and most of them are great causes), but here are some I thought deserved honorable mentions…

–National Chocolate Custard Month
–National Clean Energy Month
–Uranus Awareness Month (I had some erotic romances I could have used for this…but I’ll save that one. Seriously, it might be a good idea to bring awareness to this planet as it may end up in the realm of Pluto if we’re not careful…but I didn’t have any books of space adventures to give away.)
–National Zombie Awareness Month – No, darn it, I didn’t have any zombie books to give away!

The one I chose for this month is NATIONAL PET MONTH! I had two books I thought fitting for this month that I wasn’t sure I’d be able to use for any other month… Continue reading

Eliminating Writer’s Block

In honor of National Margarita Day, I’m celebrating being liberated from writer’s block!!!

Writer’s block…first there is the debate on whether or not it exists. Debate ended: It does. If it didn’t, it wouldn’t be the dreaded disease that plagues every writer on the planet. Those who have experienced it knows it prevents your creativity from flowing and brings your writing to a grinding halt. It’s not being lazy, it’s just misunderstanding what it really is. As writers, we all experience it at one time or another and we all know it’s the downside of being an author…or is it? Believe it or not, I believe I have found the cure for Writer’s Block!

Writing Updates

Eternal Conquest - by Arial BurnzEternal Conquest – Revisions Finished

Taking a break from the horrible situation happening in Egypt and from my Twitter and Facebook pages, I’m happy to say that my major revisions for ETERNAL CONQUEST are finished! These were the revisions I needed to make AFTER I was offered the contract from The Wild Rose Press in their Black Rose line. I met my deadline and had the changes into my editor before the end of December 2010. However, my editor had an unfortunate accident with her computer, and though she thankfully recovered, she is a little behind schedule. Which means she won’t be able to get to ETERNAL CONQUEST until the end of this month. That’s okay! I have lots of other books to write! Continue reading

Fiction Friday Post – September 24th, 2010

Wow! Been a very long time since I participated in my favorite online writing exercise. Been busy with getting married and trying to find a job (collecting unemployment right now). In between all that, we’re trying to start our own businesses and make some money from home doing creative stuff. I’ll list our web sites below so you can see what we offer and perhaps we can provide something you need!

Now that I’m dedicating more of my time to my own writing, I will do what I can to include “Write Everything“s Fiction Friday a little more often. But on to the Fiction Friday Post for 9/24/2010: Continue reading

Broderick MacDougal – IN COLOR!

Robert Quill - Artist for Hire

I had the pleasure of meeting a profound artist at the Romantic Times Book Lover’s Convention by the name of Robert Quill. Charming, witty, talented and downright hilarious, Robert was a joy to meet and converse with. I loved hearing his voice – a kind of cross between rogue and tv announcer.

Prizes! Prizes! Prizes! RT Convention Update

Greetings!!

Well, my desktop computer crapped out on me before I left on the trip, so I didn’t get to post the images of the prizes I gave away at the Romantic Times (RT) Book Lover’s Convention. Fear not, however, I took some pictures while I was in Florida and I’m posting them on my web site, so be sure to go there and check it out. (They’re too big to post in the blog)

In my last post prior to the convention, I said there was a 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize. Well, it didn’t turn out that way. I gave one item away each day over three days. By the way, congratulations to our winners!! Following the items I gave away will be the names of the winners: Continue reading

Sex, Scandal and Mayhem at the RT Book Convention!!

Aye, my third day at the Romantic Times Book Lover’s Convention, the sex, scandal and mayhem began! I met a very famous and well-loved author (she-who-shall-not-be-named) during my initial RT Virgin orientation and volunteered to help her with moving some of her promotional materials. As we walked down the halls of the convention center, she insisted on stopping by and hugging another well-known author (another she-who-shall-not-be-named), who…with MUCH excitement and enthusiasm…hugged my new-friend-famous author…and promptly began humping her leg with an expression of ecstasy on her face.

Romantic Times Book Lover’s Convention

Hey, Gang!

Sorry no recent updates! Been busy getting ready for the upcoming Romantic Times Book Lover’s Convention! Even though I’m very much looking forward to the event, I don’t think the excitement of it has hit me just yet. I’m running around like a crazy woman getting all my promotional materials and give-aways made and ready for the event. More on that in just a moment. Continue reading
