From Deep in the Quarantine Cave!

Hello all!

It's been way, wayyyy too long since I've been here on my blog! I always have good intentions, but not very good follow through. But since I'm home for the foreseeable future, it seemed like a good idea to fire up the blog again.

As you can see from the title of the blog, I'm self-quarantining from the Coronavirus largely due to the risks this illness would post to the health of my mother, who is 86 years old and while she's in great health, she fare well if she caught it. We're adapting. Mostly my sister goes out and does the shopping, etc, because she works at Wal Mart. She's an official sanitizer, that person you've been seeing in all the stores who walked around with a spray bottle and rags, making sure the surfaces are bug-free for a few seconds.

Life hasn't changed too much for me, but the few changes there have been are profound. Of course, I'm staying at home now. No dog shows, to trips to the self-grooming parlor. No movies. (dammit!) And my oldest daughter got trapped in the US when Salvador closed its borders, so she's staying at her sister's house. Ironically, I can't see my daughters, or my grandsons because my youngest is a dental hygienist, which is the career that's at top risk for contracting/carrying the Coronavirus.


Now to business.

I'm slowly re-releasing all my titles from Loose Id, Changeling and Dreamspinner to self-publishing formats. If you're looking for something to read, several titles are on Kindle Unlimited. I'll be posting the third Imperative book, (Saving You) An Uncommon Whore and Belle Starr very soon, as they're all covered. I'm working on a few new titles, but I've learned not to share too much since I kinda bounce around between works. Rest assured, I'll share when I'm ready!

AND I'm going to start sharing a whole bunch of Amazon Author pages where you can find more KU books of all genres. So if you have a subscription, this is a great way to take advantage of it! So many authors shared that I'll be doing it in chunks.

I'll also be sharing it in my newsletter.

You do subscribe to my newsletter, don't you? If not, just head on over to my website ( and sign up using the form there.

For now, take a deep breath, pick up the phone and chat with a friend, stream a movie--and wash your hands!

BTW, I have soap for sale...lots of Nag Champa hemp soap. It's groovy.

For now, Happy Tails!

An Uncommonly Beautiful Cover...Coming Soon!

This year marks the 10th anniversary of the release of my Space Opera novel An Uncommon Whore. Can you believe its been that long?

When the book first released, I was stunned and humbled by the gorgeous cover art by PL Nunn. And so grateful she continued with the series during that run.

When Loose Id closed its doors last year, Dreamspinner Press stepped up and contracted Uncommon 1, 2, 3 and The Bacchi. As part of the re-release of the series, I added about 22,000 words to An Uncommon Whore, expanding the story quite a lot. Over the years, there were elements I really wished I'd written about and finally got the chance!

As part of the re-release, we decided the cover art, though it was iconic, was in need of an update. It was a hard decision to make, but it was time to move on.

Later this week, I'll be debuting the new cover of An Uncommon Whore. While I was in New Orleans at Book Lover's Con, I got to see it, and boy howdy...they did an awesome job! It's true to the character and the sensual feel of the original, but its fresh and unique to this release.

Stand by, folks, I'll announce the reveal in the next day or two!

Cover Reveal, Coming Soon!

On May 1st, I'll be launching the re-release of Belinda Classics, starting with the Imperative Series!

Stand by for information about the cover reveal for Imperative: Missing You...this was my first book ever released. :)

Missing You is a MMF, Interracial Menage set in futuristic California. Its a bit sweet, spicy, sad and heartwarming. I wrote it from a birthstone prompt (mine is aquamarine) and got the basic idea when a guy friend complained that there weren't many romances with bisexual men.

So I wrote it for him, and his girlfriend (now wife) who's name is also a gemstone. But I won't say which one. LOL!

Look for the cover reveal in my newsletter, on my Patreon and my Facebook author page.

Have a great week, and Happy Tails!
