Tagged again!

People must want to keep a track on me. *LOL* I've been tagged again by Leigh Ellwood. This time it's about threesomes. Hey! Hey! Settle down! Not that type. Just read on and see who I'll tag next.

Three screen names that you've had: Just 3? Cleopatra Jones, Tamara Dobson (see the Cleopatra Jones reference) and Miss Mahogany. Don't ask.

Three things you like about yourself: My sense of humor, my comic timing and my warped mind.

Three things you don't like about yourself: The hairs on my chinny chin chin (getting old sucks!), my need to please others before I please myself, and my lack of confidence in my times!

Three parts of your heritage: My nose, my large breasts and my writing ability.

Three things that scare you: Heights, snakes and religious zealots.

Three of your everyday essentials: My laptop, lotion of any kind and a publisher's acceptance letter. You other writers don't get that every day? It's just me? *LOL* Yeah, I wish.

Three things you are wearing right now: Actually I'm only wearing 3 things right now. A brown-and-tan striped sweater, tan bra and tan panties. I am southern. Southern women have to match their underwear to their outerwear. Didn't you know that?

Three of your favorite songs: "In Your Eyes" by Peter Gabriel (loved it way before it was in the movie "Say Anything"), "Pagan Poetry" by Bjork, and "The Chauffeur" by Duran Duran. An oldie but a goodie.

Three things I want in a relationship: Laughter, honesty, trust.

Two truths and a lie: I once met the governor and lieutenant governor of Virginia, I breed Great Danes and show them off in dog shows, I've been to a nudist resort.

Three things you can't live without: Sex, creativity and string cheese.

Three places you want to go on vacation: Hawaii, Australia and Greece.

Three things you just can't do: Stop watching "American Idol", stop lusting after Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, and take a lot of pain.

Three kids names: J.J., Michael and Thelma (take your time on that one. It'll sink in eventually)

Three things you want to do before you die: Win an award at an RWA conference, win an award at an RT conference, be a guest on Oprah.

Three celeb crushes: Again, just three? Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Julian McMahon and Harvey Keitel. I know. It's weird.

Three of your favorite musicians: Peter Cincotti, Bjork and Frank Sinatra.

Three physical things about the opposite sex that appeals to you: Great sense of humor, nice eyes and big hands.

Three of your favorite hobbies: writing, writing and writing. Is there anything else?

Three things you really want to do badly right now: Sleep, sleep and sleep. Haven't done that in a while.

Three careers you're considering/you've considered: Veterinarian, physical therapist and courtroom stenographer.

Three ways that you are sterotypically a boy: I watch professional wrestling, I hang out at Hooter's and I like grabbing crotches (not my own)

Three ways that you are sterotypically a girl: I have a huge shoe collection, I have an even bigger purse collection, and I love wearing perfumes and scented lotions.

Three people that I would like to see post this meme: Jenna Allen, Selah March and Anna Fallon.

Our house in the middle of our street!

Hiya, folks! How are you all doing? Yeah, I'm doing okay myself. The weather? Kind of cool. But hey, we are in autumn now, right? Think it's going to be a very cold winter this year. What's that to the left, you ask? Why that's my spiffy, new cover for my upcoming full-length erotica Fascination Street through Venus Press. I'm so thrilled that this book is being published.

To promote it, I have opened up an on-line community on my site. Go to and check it out. I have pictures of what I imagine each character looks like, pictures of their homes and excerpts. But the best part is that you can read what each character is thinking on their blog and chat with the characters in their forum! I think it's going to be a blast. I've already made a formal announcement. My next announcement will be for the contest I'm going to have. I have so many cool things planned for this place. You should definitely join in, otherwise you'll miss all of the fun!

Stay sexy,

Tagged for migrating purposes!

It's happened again, folks. I've been tagged! This time It's from Jenna Allen. Here are my tasks.

1. Delve into your blog archive. Done that. That was the easy part.
2. Find your 23rd post (or closest to). The 23rd post would have been my most recent post: "When it rains it pours. And I love being wet!"
3. Find the fifth sentence (or closest to). Here's my sentence: Let's talk about my cover for my novella "Public Domain".
4. Post the text of the sentence in your blog along with these instructions. Ponder it for meaning, subtext or hidden agendas. My meaning? I wanted you all to look at the cover. The subtext? I wanted you to like my cover. My agenda? I wanted you to buy my book. *LOL*
5. Tag three people to do the same.

Now I'm going to tag Anna Fallon, Leigh Ellwood and Alessia Brio! Moohaahaahaa!

Stay sexy,

When it rains, it pours! And I love being wet!

Talk about your amazing months! Okay, so we're only in the 4th day of October. But I'm telling you, it's already starting off to being an awesome month.

Hmmm, where should I start first? Oh! Let's talk about my cover for my novella "Public Domain". It's that big colorful thing to your left. *LOL* I love it! Thanks again, Jinger Heaston, for doing a wonderful job. Sometimes as a writer, you write something and put it away for a while and don't read it until weeks or months later. I hadn't read "Public Domain" for a couple of weeks and I reread the opening. I couldn't believe how accurate Jinger got with the picture and how much it matched the opening of the story. I kid you not when I say I was literally reading and flipping back to the cover to compare. *LOL* Yeah, I have no life.

Okay, so I get this really cool cover. So then what? So now this cool story with the cool cover has just been released through Ocean's Mist Press! The book came out on October 3rd. Uh, yeah. I know I'm a day late. So sue me. No, really don't sue me. I have no money. But I do have it on good authority that sales are going well. I'm glad people are digging the cover and, especially, the story. If you're interested in reading an excerpt, you can check it out on both the Ocean's Mist Press site and on my website at

If that wasn't exciting enough, I have more great news! Midnight Showcase offered me not 1, not 2 but 3 contracts! Two contracts are for erotica short stories that I had written for the contest but neither made it as a finalist. And Midnight Showcase also accepted my full-length interracial erotic romance Interpersonal Skills. I'm thrilled about this because my work will be in print! Can you believe it? I would love to be able to sign this book at the In The Pink signing in November.

So what's next? Well I FINALLY did my edits for "Chances", my erotic romance for Erotique Press. Still not sure when it will come out but hey, at least that's done. I also found out who my editor will be for...oh, wait, I haven't shared that news yet.

Next big news is that Liquid Silver Books offered me a contract for another full-length erotic romance called That's What Friends Are For. Okay, NOW I can share that news. I just found out who my editor for this book will be and I can tell we're going to get along great. She gets my sense of humor! That's rare, let me tell ya'. Again, I really hope the book is out by signing time but I don't think it will be. :(

So now I've been promoting my butt off for "Public Domain". I'm hoping it's a hit. I would love for it to reach 100 sales. Oh, and vote for me on Erotic Romance Reviews for Women to win the Golden Shoe Awards. I'm losing right now but I'm losing to my dear friend, Laura Bacchi so I'm way cool with that.

I'll try not to stay away from my blog. I'm trying to get better. If I misbehave again, just give me a spanking. Oh! That reminds me. I went to a T.I.E.D. demonstration where we learned...oh, wait. Maybe I should save that for another time. *S*

Stay sexy,
