Another Day In Ordinary Time

The Lovestruck Giveaway Blog Hop is over so it's back to business as usual...for now.  Next week starting on June 28th, I'm part of the Angels and Demons Blog Hop so be sure to come on back for more chances to win.  Speaking of winning, congratulations go out to TigLilyGirl and Joy, my two winers from the Lovestruck hop,  Emails just went out to let them know how to claim their prize!

Summer's really here now - at least in my hemisphere - and it's proving it with hot, sultry weather.  I'm deep into a work in progress, about 3/4 finished and my next project is tormenting me.  I can't wait to begin and in between writing on the current project, I'm doing a lot of research for the next.

For those who haven't heard, I've signed three new contracts - first for Red In The Hood,  a short work for the new Romance On The Go Line at Evernight Publishing.  We just completed edits and it should release on July 17 which makes it my next release.  Here's the cover - this one gives me chills in a good way every time I see it.

I also signed a contract for Devlin's Grace with Rebel Ink Press....and for Urban Renewal with Champagne Books.  Urban Renewal is slated for a March 2013 release and Devlin's Grace later this year. No covers yet but here are the blurbs:

Devlin's Grace:


When he rides out of the fog on his motorcycle Gracie Alloway could almost mistake him for a demon rising from the smoke and steam of hell....except she's attracted to him from the first moment.

Devlin is everything she's not - wild and a little wicked but opposites attract because good girl, college student Gracie wants more of this bad boy.

He dreamed up a fantasy woman back in Iraq a lot like Gracie and she evokes a side he hasn't shown anyone in years. She also dares to enter his personal space and take liberties no other woman's dared.

Although he struggles with PTSD and other issues, Gracie won’t run and she refuses to abandon her Devlin.

If she can just tame him and help him battle his demons.....if he can teach her how to live a little bit more, they might just have a chance at a future - together.

And Urban Renewal:

Movie star Mercedes Montague has it all – the fame, the fortune, and the glittering celebrity lifestyle.  But she lost herself somewhere along the way. On a publicity tour for her next movie she realizes she’s just fifty miles from her hometown.  Mercedes – real name Marie Dillard – decides to bolt and go home to see if she can find what’s left of herself.   Hiding away in her grandparents’ old home in a working class neighborhood she’s haunted by memories and reminders of her first and only love, Joe Shelby.
 Marie’s stunned when Joe shows up at her door.  Passion kindles between them from the first moment their eyes meet but she won’t let it consume her unless it’s going to include a lasting love. As they renew their relationship, Marie and Joe face many struggles.
Can a movie star return to reality or is love just a distant dream?

Coming even up after Red In The Hood, Heart of the Ozarks August 3 from Rebel Ink's the cover and blurb for it too! This cover - by Carl J. Franklin, amazing cover art guru - ranks as one of my all time favorites!

Life’s never easy for a good-hearted man who decides crime is the answer to his troubles.
No rain in the summer of 1933 is bad news for Oklahoma farmer Henry Mink. The local banker wants the mortgage on the farm paid and unless Henry comes up with the dough, his widowed mother and four young siblings won’t have a home.  Jobs are scarce so he decides to rob a bank.   His sweetheart, school teacher Mamie Logan, doesn’t like the idea and neither does Henry’s kid brother Eddie but Henry’s out of options.
He leaves home and robs a bank at nearby Ponca City. When he returns home, he pays off the mortgage but new troubles show up. Mamie is his greatest joy and they become engaged but by fall, Henry has no options left but to rob another bank.  If he can pull off one another big job, he figures he’ll be set until the hard times are over but few things in life go as planned.  His desperate efforts will either secure his future or destroy it forever.
If Henry’s family survives and Mamie’s love endures, he’ll need a miracle.
