Beltane ..

I just looked at the calendar and realized that Beltane (May Day) is just around the corner.
It's hard to believe it's only a month away, it just seems like yesterday was winter and cold.

What better time to post a bit from Book I in my Magic Seasons series - Beltane Magic.

Step into a world of Magic and passions....

The Magic Seasons series

Recipe for the Magic Season series:

Take a dash of spice, heat it

Add a flash of magic and watch the sparks fly

Toss in a killer that's targeting women

Add a handful of witches from all paths to stir it all together...

(warning this will raise your body temperature, use with caution)


Genre: Paranormal Romance/suspense
Cover Artist: Mia Romano

Book Length: 78,500

Heat Level: Sensual

A serene woman who calls to the elements with a thought...

A man of youthful charm who carries healing in his touch...

Both vowed to spend their lives alone and safe; until they’re brought together by the touch of Beltane magic.

Can they survive their pasts to be together as they struggle to find a killer before the wheel turns again?


Aileena (Leena) is a woman that is gentle in everything, her personality and moods. She always feels maternal with her closest friends and would go out of their way to look after any one of them. Her ability of controlling the elements and knowledge of plants make her magic abilities strong and unbreakable. She is a leader at work and in life, always working hard to keep those around her close, but never allowing anyone to get too close.

Owen is a man that reflects humour and cavalier vibrations to others, he is gentle and caring as is his ability to draw negative and heal others. If you didn’t know him, you would never realize he came from violence. Knowing how the real world can be, he has vowed to never put himself into the position, or allow anyone else that could open up the world he has carefully sealed shut forever.

You can find it in several ebook formats as well as print

at Amira Press

Check out my website for other locations including Amazon in kindle format

and Mobipocket.

My blue phase

Yes, I've been playing with my blog again.
(website as well) This seems to be my favorite thing
to do when I'm procrastinating.
I started with purple everything and transitioned into
black and now I've just entered the blue phase of
templates I like!

The reason I'm procrastinating this week has nothing
to do with ten hour work days and zoning out when I
get home (okay, not completely for that reason)
it's because I think my brain has melted a few
receptors in the last week.

I'm hip deep into rewrites on Heart from my Animal
Trilogy and so far it's been quite challenging.
Next time I decide to dive into NaNo, I will regardless
of the word count goal, pay closer attention to the
link between my typing fingers and my muse in overdrive.

To add to the feeling of "I think I'm losing my mind"
I now have todo some serious re-writes to Harvest
Dreams from my Magic Seasons series.
This one will be long and agonizing as I originally
wrote this right after the second, roughly three years
ago and jumping back into the groove on a story after
that much time is a hard thing to accomplish.

All that's missing in my realm at this moment are
rounds of edits for two different stories with two
different publishers to arrive in my inbox!!

Solution to all of the above ...

Play with the colors of your website and blog and
zone out into a pretend place of important things you
really don't have to do, but find more interesting.

And I do have more Author Reads snippets to share,
they just lack editing and right now I'm close to
overdosing on editing!!

Lost in reality!

Despite telling myself I am going to blog every few days, it never happens!

Reality tromps on me each time I make a plan that involves non-reality things.
I prefer the virtual side of things - I can be in seven places at the
same time, be doing many separate things and still be vaguely present in reality.
Unfortunately reality doesn't work that way. If I could be at work doing what I do
and at home working on my latest edit or WIP at the same time, that would rock!

*shakes head*

My reality has involved recovering from a 'minor' surgery (minor being defined as
nothing major was taken out or put in - but it still hurt and slowed me down to about
a quarter of my usual speed!) without missing a day at work (okay I did get strict with
me and only worked half days for about an entire week).

In my downtime from work I did a complete re-write and edits on a manuscript, that the gremlins did something to and after reaching 'the end' part of the pages I had to go all the way back to 'page one' and do it all over again! (practice, practice, practice does NOT apply to working on the same story over and over again)

I did also manage to find a few quiet moments to catch up on some amazing stories some
fellow authors were sweet enough to share with me. My next step will be to write out my thoughts on these books and get them posted for the next Author Reads. My goal is to have
this finished by the end of the week so I can start getting back to using this blog more often.

I have a few other things in the works at this time as well.
I have a release date for Twice Cursed. It will be out at Whiskey Creek Press in February 2011.
In addition to getting back to work on my Animal Trilogy I am working on the second story to my Hidden Senses Trilogy, I will have news on the first, Mystic Perceptions, at Class Act Books shortly.

Now, back to that reality thing.
