This video is genius on so many levels, I just HAVE to share it with you. I smiled and laughed throughout. So clever (and hot!). Kudos to the advertising team, writers and actor. Enjoy!

I've been home from the Romantic Times Convention for four days and have yet to fully recover. Much to share, but short on time just now. Stay tuned! I did however want to provide you with a link that offers a slice of the insight gleaned from one of the contemporary panels I moderated. A panel that featured awesome bestselling authors, Louisa Edwards, Susan Elizabeth Phillips, Christina Skye, and Jodi Thomas, as well as dynamo author//commentator Sarah Wendell from Smart Bitches,Trashy Books. 

Moderating this panel, and a second contemporary panel featuring wildly popular authors Stephanie Bond, Roxanne St. Claire, Lori Wilde, and St. Martins Press Executive Editor Monique Patterson were highlights of the conference for me. All of the panelists were unbelievably entertaining, inspiring, and generous with writing insight. Read about one of the panels as written by Sarah Wendell--here. I wish I had more pictures of the workshops. If anyone one has some to share, let me know!

Chicago Bound

As always time has blurred. I'd meant to share the following news much earlier but then I got caught up in preparing for the conference itself and . . . well, better late than never.

I'm leaving in a couple of hours for the Romantic Times Booklovers Convention in Chicago. I will be there all week--attending workshops, hosting workshops, signing at the gigantic book fair, and dancing the night away at the parties. For those of you attending who'd hoped to say hello, you can definitely find me at these following functions.

The Unveiling of the Unspun Trilogy

Image
Today is a special day for three very talented ladies, the authors of the Unspun Trilogy. Three e-novellas connected by the three Fates. Behold the reveal of covers and book trailers. A triple dose of awesomeness!
The Fates are said to control our destinies. From our first breath to our dying gasp, these creatures of legend weave the courses of our lives. Even the gods are subject to their decrees. Spinners of dark secrets, the Fates have been feared for the tragedies they weave. No man dared confront the Relentless Ones . . . until now.
