This lovely man is pretty close to how I envision my hero looking in my ghost hunting novel coming out this fall. It’s called Deadly Chaos.


It’s been a whirlwind week!

Emily got rid of Sean and is now left with Jef and Arie. Decisions, decisions.

Kidding…sort of. I do love the Bachelorette (It’s a televised romance, come on! How could you not love this show?) Not a fan of the Bachelor, it seems a bit smarmy to me but alas…I usually still watch.

Actually, this has been the week of the book cover and book launch.

I’ve been working with my graphic designer to get covers for the 3 books I’m releasing this fall. So much fun! And two of those manuscripts have been sent to the editor for a final run through.

And, I finally have a launch date for 1001 Romance Writing Prompts so things are starting to come together. It’s exciting to say the least.

Speaking of launching books…

Rose Pressey ( had a launch party on Facebook yesterday. She’s also hosting a contest on her website. Check it out.  I was impressed by the concept of a Facebook book launch party so I attended. Alas, I attended late and the party goers had left. It’s no fun being at a party by yourself (unless you’re already drunk) so I didn’t stick around. Still, a good idea. If you’ve ever hosted a book launch event on Facebook how did you do it and how did it go?

Now for the fun stuff…

**Do people think you’re stupid because you read and write romance novels? It’s a common perception. You might enjoy this Huffington Post article, Why Smart Women Read Romance Novels.

**You also don’t have to be female to write, and read, romance. Check out this USA Today article on men who write romance, The few, the brave: 4 men who write inspy romance.

**Finally, apparently you don’t even have to write your book yourself. No, we’re not talking about the traditional ghostwriter assignment. The Globe and Mail shares this article about a unique crowdsourcing approach to writing a book Please write his book: One man’s efforts to crowdsource his novel

I’m heading out of town for a few days so there won’t be a Hot Fun Friday next week.

Enjoy the day, enjoy the weekend and happy writing!
