A Very Merry Christmas Eve
Last night we had an intimate Christmas Eve dinner with Jax and her dh. Too much good food, too much champagne, and things got a little strange, but then, this is LA, so that happens. Here are a few pics-they pretty much tell the story-LOL!

Jax, my b/f and me in front of the tree

Me and Jax after perhaps a few too many glasses of champagne
Jax and her drunken lightsaber battle with my b/f (her dh on the sofa in the background)
The end of a great evening!

I don't have much in the way of news today. I've just been getting ready for the holidays-shopping, wrapping and mailing gifts, preparing for Christmas Eve dinner at my place...but in between I've been working on my next two books-hopefully Bantam will like my proposals. I'm going non-BDSM with these-surprise, surprise! The second book will be about fetishes, but I'm not saying what kind. The first book is pure sensual fantasy. Can't say much else until they're contracted. Cross your collective fingers for me!
My editor wants the proposals on both books, as well as a first chapter on each, the first week in January, which is very do-able if I make myself sit down and write! Actually, I completed the rough on the outline for the first book last night, and I've started the chapter on that book. Today I've been running errands and goofing off, but I suppose I need a day like that now and then, too. But now, fueled by chocolate, I'm going to try and funnel my energy into that first chapter. It'd be great to make some headway on it tonight. Wish me luck!
Not sure when I'll post again with all the holiday craziness, and I'll probably fly to Reno to care for a dear friend post-surgury the first week of the New Year (we're waiting to find out her surgury date), so while I'm here, I want to wish everyone a Happy Holiday season-whatever you happen to celebrate! Be joyful, be well, and happy writing!

I Was Tagged for Christmas!
Christmas list
Tagged by my dear friend, erotica author Lacy Danes
1. Egg Nog or Hot Chocolate? Hot chocolate! Anything chocolate. But I do love egg nog, too.
2. Does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree? Oh, presents must be wrapped as prettily as possible! And I love those pretty gift bags!
3. Colored lights on tree/house or white? Colored lights on the tree, generally, although one year I did a tree with white lights and all silver, gold and white ornaments and it was beautiful! I'm too lazy to put lights outside.
4. Do you hang mistletoe? We did at my Mom's house, but I haven't done it since Mom's been gone. Maybe I should...:)
5. When do you put your decorations up? Usually around the second week in December. I always get a natural tree, and I don't want it to dry out. I live in LA, which is really desert, so everything is dry here.
6. What is your favorite holiday dish? I have to go with Lacy on this and say pumpkin pie-with lots of whipped cream. Hmmm...the whipped cream by itself is pretty good, too!
7. Favorite Holiday memory as a child? My first Christmas tree when I was eight. Long story.
8. When and how did you learn the truth about Santa? I was six years old. My favorite aunt, Linda, had spent the night and was sleeping on the couch. I woke up early and found a red bicycle with a big ribbon on it in the middle of the living room. For some reason, I thought Christmas was the next day, and it was some sort of sin to have seen the bike too early. I freaked out! The only way my aunt could calm me down was to explain the whole Santa thing.
9. Do you open a gift on Christmas Eve? Always-some on Christmas Eve, some on Christmas Day.
10. How do you decorate your Christmas Tree? Colored lights, tons of gorgeous ornaments, mostly glass, and gold beaded garlands.
11. Snow! Love it or Dread it?I love it! But I've only seen it a few times (I am a California girl!) and I've never had to live in it. I imagine the novelty would wear off real fast the first time I had to shovel my driveway.
12. Can you ice skate? Rather horribly as a kid. Probably not at all by now.
13. Do you remember your favorite gift? My aunt Linda got a Barbie van for me-it was all pink and orange (this was the late sixties-erverything was pink and orange). I loved that thing!
14. What’s the most important thing about the Holidays for you? Spending time with family and friends.
15. What is your favorite Holiday Dessert? That pumpkin pie again!
16. What is your favorite holiday tradition? Just sitting around the table and eating, talking, laughing, telling stories, drinking champagne-being together
17. What tops your tree? A gold star.
18. Which do you prefer giving or receiving? Giving, absolutely! Especially when there are kids. I have a little brother and sister now, and a new nephew-fun!
19. What is your favorite Christmas Song? All I Want for Christmas Is You and the David Bowie/Bing Crosby version of The Little Drummer Boy.
20. Candy Canes! Yuck or Yum? YUM!
Tagging... Crystal Jordan and Karen Erikson-because they actually read my blog now and then-LOL!

~WINTER SOULSTICE~ Released this Friday!

My contemporary erotic novella with a slight paranormal twist, Winter Soulstice, will be released this Friday! Here's a little peek:
A chance storm on December 21st, the Winter Solstice, drives psychologist Destiny Walker to a spontaneous consultation with a fortune-teller. When the psychic tells her she’s about to meet her soul mate, Destiny is dubious.
But when she runs into Superman look-alike Reece Kellan—literally—her rational world is turned upside down. Reece is funny, kind, and the sexiest man she’s ever seen. And when their bodies meet, the electricity they create could rival the storm raging outside. But there’s something more there, something mysterious, alluring and a little frightening. Is it possible the psychic was right, after all?

Come and celebrate my new release this Friday night at 8PM EST at the Cobblestone chatroom! Just go to to find the chatroom or to buy my book!
Lots of exciting things happening right now. I recently sold my short BDSM-themed erotic novella, Breaking Skye, to Phaze, due to be released in February as part of Phaze's February Fetish line-try to say that 5 times fast! More on Breaking Skye later.
Today I'm working on finishing up proofing the galleys on The Dark Garden for Bantam. I hope to have it sent back to my editor by tomorrow. I don't know how many times I've read this story by now, but I still have moments where I read a certain line or a scene, and I think 'Oh, that was really good!'. I think it's rare for a writer to really like what we write without constantly doubting ourselves. So it's pretty exciting that I still love this story-a first for me. I have noticed that I like what I'm writing more and more, so maybe it's an evolution of my development as a writer. Not that I'll love every line I ever write-far from it. I see this growth as a life-long process, and I know there will always be these inner struggles to love what I do, to do it well, to keep doing it better.
I'm not actively working on a new story right now, which is strange. I have two books vaguely outlined that I'm dying to get to, though. I thought I'd take December off and just enjoy it, but I'm so compelled to write! This is a good thing, I suppose. But maybe some day I'll learn how to relax-LOL! And even though I'm not working on these stories, they're in my head, my characters popping in to tell me something about who they are, feeding me bits of dialogue...if they would only keep quiet long enough for me to conecentrate on the task at hand, maybe I could work a little faster. But I have to stop several times a day to make notes. Do the rest of you do this, or am I really that neurotic?
Okay-back to work!

So many books, so little time

Wow-there are so many great books to read this month! With all the craziness of the holidays, you deserve to curl up with a good book in the evenings, don't you? Here's a sampling of a few great winter reads:

Proximity of DesireVolume 1 by r. Pia
Erotic (could ya tell by the cover?) Sci-Fi/FuturisticLength: Short Story
Could you live without touch…without Sex? In 2410, the simple act of touching has been outlawed, except for practical purposes. However, sex is not one of them. Adymn 514 intends to break free of society’s censorious constraints. He’s determined to convince the girl he loves that touch is not vile—it’s needed.
You can find this book at
From Canice Brown-Porter, The Goblin, The Witch, and the Single Girl. This is a sweet romantic paranormal/contemporary novella:
Five years after losing her parents in the 9/11 terrorist act that toppled the Twin Towers in New York City, Caitlin realizes she needs to take control of her life again and start fresh. Even if it means giving up the most eligible bachelor in the City.Trips to Montreal as a young girl with her parents had taken her through the quaint, quiet little village of Rouses Point. Perched on the northernmost shores of Lake Champlain in New York state, the old Clabo Victorian home had been vacant even back then. And now, here she stands in the middle of the foyer of her new home, grinning like a Cheshire cat. Will her life be as sweet as she foresees? Or will the other occupants in her house throw a wrench in her plans?

Not Quite Dead by Sela Carsen
Price: $3.50 Length: Novella
Genre: Romance/Paranormal/Comedy
Buy From MBaM!
He’s gorgeous, he’s got great manners, he’s got a mission to accomplish. The only drawback? He’s been dead for a hundred years.
Sabine Harper’s night started out badly—a dead man jumped out of his grave, she was chased by a vampire and now she has an uninvited guest. The worst part? A guy who may or may not be entirely dead is looking ten times better than any living man she’s ever dated.
Willem Breaux has only three days to avenge his murder, but upon awakening more than a century into the future, he discovers that he needs Sabine’s help more than he could have imagined. And in the end, he’ll need her love more than anything else.
Can Willem and Sabine find love—and a little laughter—in spite of time, death and an evil that’s waited a century to make its move?

So, what am I doing while everyone is reading these fabulous books? Christmas shopping, editing one book, proofing galleys on another, taking a very small break from writing. But I haven't been a totally useless lump-I sold my BDSM novella, BREAKING SKYE, to Phaze for their February Fetish line! I'm very excited, because while all of my print books so far are BDSM, all of my e-pubbed books have been vanilla. I thought it was time to let my dark side out on the Internet, so stay tuned for the upcoming release of BREAKING SKYE!
