Hi-- So yesterday's Blog Hop was a HUGE success. I had 106 comments just on my blog and June M. won both my prizes and the grand $80.00 GC! Congratulations. I also celebrated the day--my one year anniversary as a published author--by receiving a contract from Etopia Press for Beach Balls, the third book in my Laguna Beach series of LGBT contemporary romances. Beach Balls is the story of enemies becoming lovers and it will come out later in the year -- probably early summer. It's been an exciting month. Need to focus on my writing now. Many people waiting for books! : )

Hi everyone-- As you probably know unless you've been hiding out, my new release, Mistletowed, came out on Dec 13. I've been blogging and partying all over town. Then i learned that my novella, Volley Balls, is nominated for Best Menage in the Goodreads MM Romance Group's poll. Then yesterday, the piece de resistance. My book, Genetic Attraction, was nominated for a CAPA in the contemporary romance category and i was nominated for Favorite Author. I am amazed and in shock about this last news. Holy Cow. That list is populated by by heroes. To be on it is an astonishing honor.
I hope you all have the very best holiday ever. Blessings abound! : )
