    Friday Hangover and a Winner!

    Happy Friday! I hope you all had a good night last night with plenty of treats and no tricks. Things started out slow over by me. I decorated the porch along with Jack who was without a costume this year but still feeling festive and we sat and waited.


    And waited some more. But once it got dark and my purple lights came up the kids really started to come out and it was quite a lot of fun answering the door in my Witch’s Hat. It started to drizzle around 8:45 which put an end to the Trick or Treaters wich was fine by me because it was  getting on time to settle in for the real Halloween scare with Scandal.

    Wow! It was so good. You can check out my recap for the week over at Heroes and Heartbreakers. I’d love to hear your comments.

    A big thank you to all who commented on the fab Lise Horton’s WORDS OF LUST interview. I’m so grateful to Lise for being here. Thanks to random number generator I have pulled a name for her book giveaway and the winner is Maria Ferrer! Congrats Maria! Lise will be in touch. And no worries if you didn’t win you can click here to buy your own copy of WORDS OF LUST.

    Have a great weekend!

    And The Winners Are…

    I want to thank everyone once again for hosting and for following me on my World Wide Blog tour.  I had such a good time and now I’m happy to announce the tour Amazon gift card winners from trusty Random number generator.

    First, our tour host winner is Christy McKee from Christy McKee Writes for Women in The Sweet Spot of Life. Congratulations, Christy and thanks once again for hosting me and Through The Lens!

    And now I’m so grateful to have had over a hundred comments on my tour, many of them from people who were kind enough to follow me from stop to stop reading the Through The lens excerpts. I can’t tell you how happy that made me. I hope that even if you did not win you’ll still pick up Through The Lens to see what happens with Mika and Alejandro. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

    And now to the lucky winner… Congratulations to lucky 78! Lyra L7! Thanks for the fantastic comments Lyra. Your gift card is on the way!  This has been so much fun and I hope to see you all again with my next book: Seduction’s Canvas.

    Thrilling Thursday!

    Howdy folks! It’s been quite the week and flying by too. We had a quickie snowstorm and then Spring sprung with more freezing temperatures and not a fine how do you do. Side-eye to that.

    I continued on my World tour thanks so much to all of you following me, it’s so appreciated. I have another stop today over at Long and Short Reviews so please stop by there for another chance to win. And on top of all of that, with the week not even over, yesterday I got my edits for book 2 so it will be a busy next couple of weeks for me in the writing cave (note to self: get provisions ie: chocolate).

    And then finally to top things off with the best news, I got my official release date and title for book 2! So that said… wait for it… Book 2 in my Creative Heart series will be out May 27th and called…

    BTW, Don’t you just love this pic of Edie Sedwick and Andy Warhol marrying Fashion and art?

    Double up Wednesday!

    Howdy Lovelies and Happy Wednesday and Happy Spring though the snow outside my window says something else. Today I’m in two places at once again but no worries I’m a mom of twins so I’m used to it.

    My first stop in hanging with one of my fellow Crimson sisters Elizabeth Meyette for an interview. It was so much fun hanging with Elizabeth and I really enjoyed her fantastic questions. Then my next stop in my world tour is with the cool Kim at Read Your Writes Book Reviews. Please stop on by her great blog to see what she has to say about Through The Lens and get another change to win a gift cars. Whew, what a wild Double Wednesday this is! Have a great one.

    Winter is Here…Still

    Good Tuesday. I can’t believe I’m here waking to snow today. Will it ever be done? Ever? Ok that’s quite dramatic, of course it will and Spring will be on the way before we know it, tomorrow in fact! Don’t you love my pep talk? I really am trying, but at this point the only Winter I want to see is in the upcoming Game of Thrones season opener.

    Today for another stop on my magical fashion tour I’m at Rachel Brimble Romance blog so please stop on by and enter to win. But wait… I’m making two stops, WHEE!! I’m also at Books are Magic blog so 2 chances to win! Stop on by there too. Have fun!

    Also don’t you just love this series of 1970’s pics of legendary beauty Pat Cleveland by photographer Antonio Lopez. I sure do. They still look modern and beautiful.


    Have a happy and let’s all wish for Spring together. I’m going to do some warm scene writing to bring a little heat to the day. How are you warming up? Reading anything good?


    All the best,

    Supermodels and more Super chances to look through & win!

    Happy Monday!! I know I shouldn’t be all double exclamation point excited, but really I’m just trying to hype myself up to get into this Monday thing this week. That said, I do have something to be happy about. Today my world tour is still on and I’m over at the fab Words of Wisdom from the Scarf Princess. She has a fun excerpt and a review of Through The Lens so you can head on over there and see what she thought of the book. Don’t forget make a comment and enter to win a gift card of your very own.


    I’ve decided that this week, keeping with the TTL photo shoot theme, I’d feature some of my favorite fashion models or icons from days past. I hope you enjoy. Today I’m starting with a love of mine, the first African American model to grace the cover of American Vogue, the ever beautiful, Beverly Johnson.



    All the best,

    Tick tock pretty lovelies. The clock is winding down. There are less than 2 days left to enter my Goodreads giveaway. Please click on over for your chance to win a SIGNED copy of Though The Lens my debut ‘sexy island getaway’ novel. Whoo Hoo!


    And in honor of Goodreads and my 1st giveaway here’s a little Tears For Fears with my favorite video set in a library. Yeah I know this video has nothing to do with islands or my book but Goodreads is where I keep track of the books that I read so it’s sort of like a library to me. Just follow along people and sing. You know how my whacky mind works. Oh and enter the giveaway. Thanks!
