The squealing post

No, there’s no actual noise coming to hit you. This is for all things that have happened over the past week while I’ve been holding the Fans and Favorites event.

First, I have to say THANK YOU!!! Holy Moly, the number of people who have purchased Wolf Tracks, and then written to tell me what they thought–I’m overwhelmed. It means so much to know that you are enjoying the Granite Lake series, and my writing. And yes, it definitely motivates me to write more!!

Wolf Tracks made it to the top of the MB&M list. It also hit a high of 82 in the Kindle books at Amazon. That’s the #82 book available in kindle, all genres, all lengths. All kinds of authors. That’s little ol’ TJ sitting between Ken Folette’s World without End, and Diane Galbaldon’s Dragonfly in Amber. (I just shivered…)

And when you split off to only the romance genre, TJ and Pam’s love story was ranked with books by people like Janet Evanowich, JR Ward and Gena Showalter. #8 at the best showing.

Kinda makes a girl’s week…

Then I got an email letting me know that three of my books made it to the finals in the EPIC book awards. :D The grin just got bigger. Being selected is a great honour for me as it’s a judged event from my writing peers.

Up for the honours are:

Turn It On- Erotic Contemporary
Wolf Games- Erotic Paranormal
Rocky Mountain Haven- Erotic Western

Ready for more?

And then Authors After Dark contacted me to let me know two of my books were also nominated in the Bookie Awards! These are voted on my bloggers and readers, completely blind nominations, so I’m very pleased. The voting for the actual winners starts sometime in November.

Thanks AAD and those that nominated my books.

Look at these lists! I’m in some cool company. FREAK ME OUT…I’m on a list with Larissa, Kresley, LORA, and Patricia?

Thanks, Holly!

So, has it been a good week? You bet. And tomorrow I have cover art to share, and Monday, an announcement about the Six Pack Ranch. The adventure continues and I’m still enjoying the thrill!

Snippet Saturday- he said/she said...

A bit of light interaction between characters today- I thought a snippet from Wolf Signs appropriate. Note- if you haven’t read this book, Robyn is deaf, and can read lips. She’s just overheard some startling information, and the boys have some ‘xplaining to do. Enjoy!

~~~

“Come, sit down and we’ll explain everything.” Keil pulled back a chair for her and she sat warily, shifting to keep both of them in her sight.

“Sorry, bro, guess my mouth got us both in trouble this time.” TJ lightly touched Keil’s arm in apology. A sudden rumble of the floorboards made them both swing to look at Robyn as she stomped her feet and glared at them. She pointed to the chairs and wrote rapidly, breaking the pencil lead as she underlined her final word.

I will talk this out with you. Sit down and don’t you dare speak again when I can’t see you. Ass.

Keil held out a reassuring hand and sat, motioning for TJ to join them. “I understand. We’ll answer your questions. What do you want to know?”

Robyn found another pencil and opened to a new page. Don’t think because I went a little crazy last night and let you touch me you can jerk me around this morning. You’re insane, right? Escaped from some home?

“No, Robyn, it’s true. We’re able to turn into wolves.”

Prove it. She leaned back in her chair and stared at them mockingly.

The two men exchanged glances.

What? You need a full moon?

Both men dropped their heads into their hands for a moment. Bloody fairy tales. Finally Keil looked up to see Robyn’s very confused expression.

“No. We don’t need a full moon. We also don’t bite people to turn them into werewolves. You either have the genes or you don’t. Sorry, that’s one of those tall tales that drives us crazy. We’ll have to, umm, take off our clothes to change.” Keil watched Robyn’s face turn white. A blush rose to colour her cheeks and her eyes brightened with the mischief he’d seen earlier in the morning. Good, maybe this wouldn’t take too much damage control.

She flipped the pad across the table. A private strip show? Goodie. Even if you don’t turn into anything the morning isn’t a complete write-off.

Keil laughed and turned to TJ.

“You should be the one, Keil, she’s gonna see you naked the most often.”

Keil glared at his brother.

“What? You still having problems with that boner? Man, now I really think you should shift. It would serve you right for hauling me along on your retreat instead of letting me go hang out at Klondyke Kate’s with the rest of the pack.”

“TJ.”

“All right, don’t get your fur in a knot. I’ll shift, but you keep an eye on her. If she signs anything that looks like ‘cute doggy’ or ‘sweet fluffy wuffy’, I want to learn them to insult the boys at the next pack meeting.”

Robyn raised her eyebrow.

“Stop it with the Spock look, Robyn, that seriously freaks me out. I keep expecting to see you grow pointy ears and hear you announce, ‘But this is not logical.’” TJ continued rambling as he dropped his clothes and stood naked in the middle of the cabin. He waggled his eyebrows at her and she blushed.

“Get on with it before I apply the Vulcan death grip to you, little brother.” Keil spoke through clenched teeth.

My 'book' shelf

I’ve shared before that when I started writing my daughter decided since I wouldn’t allow her to see some of the covers (naughty mommy to write such books…) she would get me a trinket for each, and I could pop them on the shelf that hubby and son made. It’s been a way for the whole family to celebrate with me.

This week, I’m going to show you a few of the trinkets. We’re kind of behind on a few, since I write too fast, and we’re trying to find the ‘perfect  ones’. I love that they can help me celebrate in this way. Of course, hubby needs to build a new, larger shelf now that I’ve filled the first!

So the picture I’ll share today are the trinkets for the Granite Lake Wolves, backwards to the series order–Wolf Signs is the one on the far right, then the two necklaces, and finally for Wolf Tracks out in October? The track! I love it.

Do you have anything special memory trinkets?

Snippet Saturday

Welcome! Today’s theme is secondary characters, and I decided to show you something cool. One of the fun things about writing a series is that a secondary character in one book can become the main character in the next! All these excerpts are from one of the Granite Lake Wolves, three books available, the first print anthology coming in August and the fourth ebook available in October.

~~~

Wolf Signs: Robyn & Keil, with a side of Tad.

“Robyn, there’s something…” Tad hesitated, looking everywhere around the room except at her. He opened and closed his mouth a couple of times before shaking his head. “Never mind.”

Robyn gave a heavy sigh. “Not again, Tad. You do this at least once a year. Whatever deep, dark secret you have I wish you’d spit it out. Or drop it and not get me curious. Are you gay?”

Tad sat back on his heels, his jaw dropping open. “Robyn!”

“Well, you seem to turn twenty shades of red every time you start this, I thought maybe it had to do with sex. I don’t care if you are gay, you know. There’s this great guy down at the bakery—”

“Thanks, but I’m not gay. It’s nothing. Do you have your bear spray?”

~~~

Wolf Flight: Tad and Missy, with a side of Erik

“How can you not remember?” Erik asked. “Don’t you feel like you’ve got to listen when Keil talks? Or your previous Alpha in Whitehorse?”

Tad shrugged. “I guess. Well, sometimes. Sometimes I just feel annoyed.”

“Annoyed?” Erik sounded strange, like he had swallowed something the wrong way.

Tad flicked a glance up at him. “Annoyed or even pissed off. Usually when I think it’s a thing stupid for them to ask. I don’t think Keil’s ordered me to do anything yet, so I’m not sure, but my Alpha in Whitehorse, heck, I ignored him all the time.”

Erik was no longer at his side and Tad turned back to look at the man who was several paces behind making the weirdest face. This night was turning truly bizarre. “What?” Tad watched as the Beta walked a slow circle around him, sniffing the air. “Sod off—I hate it when people do that.” Tad forced him away. Not an easy task since Erik was built like a brick shithouse with reinforced metal corners.

Erik shook his head slowly. “Keil’s gonna blow a gasket.”

“Tad’s going to pitch a fit if he doesn’t get to go home soon. Stop with the wolfy mumbo jumbo and let’s go see the Big Cheese.” Tad stormed into the hall, Erik trailing behind him chuckling.

~~~

Wolf Games: Erik & Maggie, with a side of TJ

He turned to make sure TJ had his lifejacket on properly. The boy was still swearing colourfully, with few repetitions.

“Does your brother know you’re this talented with words?”

TJ snorted. “Who do you think I learned them from? Well, him and Robyn. She’s awful good at cussing in sign language.”

“What’s wrong?”

“I’m going to fuck this up. I just know it. I’m going to cause some major catastrophe.”

“Why?”

TJ looked at him like he’d grown a third head. “Because I’m me. You know I can’t walk twenty feet without landing on my face.”
