Kisses and risk and random meetings . . . oh my!

Right before I fell asleep last night I thought: oh, hey, I should write a new blog post tomorrow. Hmmm. What to say? I know! I’ll post about getting Kiss Is A Four-Letter Word accepted for publication. I went to sleep, happy and content. Sort of. I generally like to post graphics with each blog posts and I didn’t have one. It’s so much more fun when you’ve got eye candy to go along with the text, don’t you think? So I made one:

That’s the beginning of the novel, pre-edit stage. So yeah, I was happy I figured out my pic dilemma, and I was ready to sprinkle some details about the book into the post when HOLY COW, Evernight emails the COVER! Um, wut? I thought. Talk about fast! Isn’t it yummy?

And then I thought, but wait, Risk Is A Four-Letter Word is coming out tomorrow! I should post about that, too. So here, have another piece of eye candy:

Thanks for the handsome dudes, but what’s with the “random meetings” part of this blog post? you ask. Simple. The Four-Letter Word series is based on chance meetings. Random encounters. If you met your soul mate once, twice, three times in a row, how would you know that this person is the one for you? The easy answer is: you don’t. You take a chance on love. You risk everything. Sometimes you test the waters out a bit.

Kisses are a great way to do that.

Description:

What if you met your soul-mates on the beach and didn’t realize it? How many chance encounters would it take before you risked everything and let yourself fall in love with not one, but two men?

For Carrie, losing her bikini top in the ocean leads to an erotic encounter with two gorgeous guys. For Eric and Zeke, the steamy kiss they share with her is an amusing interlude on a sunny, summer day, but when the three of them meet again at the art museum, attraction turns into passion. Zeke and Eric realize their feelings for each other are just as potent as their desire for Carrie. Will they risk everything and choose love? Will Carrie be willing to take that leap with them when loving two men means goodbye to her safe, conventional existence?

Risk Is A Four-Letter Word release date–>April 19!

Evernight Publishing is pretty cool

I just sent in my signed contract for a new book with Evernight Publishing and they’ve already added an author page for me to their website! No cover yet or edits, but I’m sure they’ll be coming soon since the book is scheduled for release in April. The novella is called Risk Is A Four-Letter Word and it’s part of a new series I’m writing based on the idea of chance encounters. How many times does a woman have to meet her soul-mates before she falls in love?

I’ve already begun work on the next book in this series, hopefully titled Kiss Is A Four-Letter Word. My characters are cracking me up! The heroine is a bit of a spitfire. She knows what she wants and the two guys she keeps stumbling over are just starting to realize it.

I’m also thrilled that I have a firm date for the release of Love Storm: May 10, 2012 from Siren-BookStrand. This book was a long-time coming since I wrote it in-between the craziness of real life. The next book in this series isn’t written yet, but I have ideas. Lots and lots of ideas!
