Sizzling Summer Heat - Week Six- Me!

So. How embarrassing is it to be the feature author of a summer contest?

Possibly very embarrassing, but I’m not the type. As the ladies are sure to tell you, I’m far from the shy and retiring sort who stands in the corner or hides.


I’m pre-writing this post to check out my powers of precognition. It’s currently Friday eve, July 24th at 10:42pm. I bet if you visit the other ladies websites you get mention of the following at least once:

1. Flashing goodies
2. m/m historicals
3. Shifters
4. Talking to everyone in sight/handing out postcards. Or both. At the same time.
5. Atrocious spelling
6. Bossiness
7. Organizational freak (which is another form of bossiness, but we’ll let it slide this time.)
8. Menages and m/m/f
9. Writing a lot. A freaking lot. Fast. Really fast. (Probably Jess will mention this.)
10. Wilderness adventures

I’ll be checking myself to see how I did. SNORT! Hope I didn’t give anything away.

And as the featured person for International Heat I want to take the time to say how much I appreciate each and every one of the ladies– for different reasons. From being the first people I chatted with at Samhain (Jambrea) to the first to read my work (Jess) to the first to encourage me I could do this (Rhian) the first tell me they loved my story enough to re-read it.(Valerie)…I could go on.

Sufficient to say we’re together for a reason, and I’m so glad you’ve all become a part of my life.

**cue ‘ahhh’ sound track**

**wipes at eyes**

**snorts loudly and gets on with it**

Remember to leave a comment and we’ll enter you in the draw for one of my backlist. If you have all my books already (all three of them!) don’t worry, I’ll find a special treat for you.

Nowadays there is lot of unforeseen circumstance which force people to take remedies. You can order medicines directly your office. In these latter days the stock you can find in online pharmacy is actually high. Some medications are as a rule used to treat many types of bacteria, such as tonsillitis and infections of the throat. Other ones are used to treat diabetes. Cialis is a remedy used to treat divers afflictions. What do you have to know about cialis order online? Presently many families search for the exact keyword ordering cialis online on the Internet. Perhaps you already read something about it. Having erectile disfunction can beyond doubt complicate romance. What can cause erectile malfunction? A row of psychological issues can produce erectile dysfunction. What should you discuss with a physician before taking Cialis? Any curing may cause dangerous side effects. Sometimes side effects can be actually dangerous. Talk to your pharmacist about the proper disposal of your drug.

You know Viv, it doesn't make any difference if you are writting a book or a blog post. You still manage to hold my interst, and usually leave me either drooling, laughing, or fasinated. LOL

Hello ladies!

Welcome Jane and I'm glad you found me. I pleased you liked me stories so far as well!

Sandie- as long as I don't make you fascinated about laughing until you drool, I'm okay with it. 🙂

Rhonda- I need you to return the boys NOW. Alexia is getting upset with me!

VIV! Congrats on Rocky Mountain Heat — just read the excerpt and it looks *hawt* — can't wait to hear more about it. I am very happy to see it is book ONE in the series 😉

I had a rollicking good time at the Samhain CIJ party with you, and *lurved* Soul Deep. I have, and can't wait to read, Tidal Wave. The excerpts are yummy!

Congrats on being in the spotlight — it is well-deserved!
