Entangled Publishing Autism Anthologly

Released April 28, 2012

The Entangled Publishing Autism Anthology, a charity project with all of the proceeds going to Autism Speaks. Contains three romance novellas that sizzle! Great spring reads for a lounge on the patio. Read more about each novella below. 

When ultra-shy pushover Faye Albert decides to live a little, she
inadvertently binds her soul to Satan by following him on Twitter. And
overnight, her dreams of being confident, beautiful, and adored by men
are coming true. No longer is she overlooked, pushed out her place in
line, or just plain pushed over.

But it comes at a price: if she doesn’t figure out how break the
contract, she’ll lose her soul to the Dark Prince forever.

With time running out, and no idea how to unfollow Satan, she enlists
the help of Christopher White, a gorgeous photographer from work. All
the while, Satan’s little helper dogs her every step and offers her
things she’s only dreamed of, tempting Faye with a lifetime of
earthly treasures. And unconditional love. But will she yes to a love
that knows no bounds?

Anna Kirkpatrick isn't looking for love. Being a single mom to Bowan,
her eight-year-old autistic son, takes up all of her time...leaving no
room for romance. Willing to do anything to help her son come out of
his shell, Anna agrees to take Bowan to cooking classes with a world
class chef.

Motorcycle-riding pastry chef Leo Mancini isn't exactly searching for
"the one", either. After losing every penny he had, his business, and
his girlfriend, he's moved to northern Idaho to sulk, restart his
career, and pay his sister back for a loan that no amount of money
could ever really suffice.

When Anna and Leo discover that Bowan's fondness for the kitchen
extends beyond his peculiar cookbook collection, Leo quickly becomes
the one person who can break through his barriers. But will Leo and
Anna's attraction lead to more than just a weekly cooking lesson?

The Lucky Seven

I was tagged by my fabulous CP, Ryann Kerekes, for "The Lucky Seven."

Here's how it works:
1. Go to page 77 of your current MS/WIP
2. Go to line 7
3. Copy down the next 7 lines - sentences or paragraphs - and post them as they're written. No cheating
4. Tag 7 authors
5. Let them know

My challenge will be to tag 7 authors. Any volunteers?

She took in a deep breath, the small jolt of fear releasing. “Oh, good.” She stepped into his arms, accepting his hug.
There was less hesitation from him than earlier. He pulled her into him, circling both arms around her. The comfort was instant—she felt so safe with him, even with her mom’s voice continuing on from the sitting room, blabbing on about something or other in her most pathetic woe-is-me voice.
“Why is my mom on TV?”
“She’s on the news. You’ve been reported missing.”
He let her go and reached up to rub his eyes. She caught a glimpse of light emitting from his irises just before his lids shut, but it was yellow instead of blue.
“I didn’t know your eyes could have yellow fire in them.”
He frowned at her. His eyes were totally normal again; the fire in his irises was gone. “They’re never yellow.” He lit his eyes up again for a split second to prove his point. They were their usual hellfire blue.

Contest Time!

Welcome to my first ever contest!

I took a picture of my cutie at the zoo this week, and these fish snuck into the picture and gave me an idea for a contest.

All you have to do, is write the captions for the fish in the following picture:

For consistency, let's call the fish on the left, Moe, and the fish on the right, Lippy. Best voice and humour wins.

Up for grabs is a critique on either your query letter, or the first three pages of your manuscript- your pick.
Contest closes April 20th at 9pm MST.
