Christmas Angels Anthology

Standard

Is out and available for purchase:  http://www.lulu.com/product/paperback/christmas-angels/17972287

My story is called Christmas in Venice and is set in the here and now but has a time travel element. It’s a tribute to a beautiful city and the tour guide who escorted us through it.

 

Hall-o-ween Hell-o-ween

Standard

Got an email today with the cover of Hall-o-ween, Hell-o-ween Anthology to be published by Whortleberry Press. It’s an anthology with tours of the underworld. It will be available in September.  This will be my third Halloween story with them. This editor was the first one to say yes to one of my stories. This press will always have a special place in my heart for that.  Anyway, here’s the cover. See my cute little name right at the top on the back? NICE!

My story is called Music Hall, Music Hell and it’s a tour of the musice clubs in Hell, including San Remo Emo,  The Polka Pub, and Sam Fram’s Disco, to name a few.  It was a fun one to write.

New Story Coming Sept 2011

Standard

I have a new short story coming out September in a Halloween Anthology. The Anthology is called Halloween Hell-o-ween and it’s stories about tours of hell. My story is called Music Hall, Music Hell. It’s a tour of all the music clubs in hell. It’s a fun little story. I don’t  have a picture of the cover yet but as soon as I do, I’ll post it. 

Halloween is my favorite holiday. I miss the days that my kids wanted to dress up and have a ball. We used to have a big party every year but it seemed like our friends lost interest in it and I stopped. It’s a lot of work because I never want anyone to leave my house hungry, so when it seemed like my friends weren’t interested in coming anymore, I decided to stop going to all the trouble. I do miss it but my little stories I write help me get in the fall mood.

One day, I’d love to go to Salem, Massachusetts  for the holiday. It calls to me.  I think it would be an amazing place to celebrate.

New Story Sale

Standard

I recently sold another short story- this one is called Music Hall, Music Hell.  It’s for an anthology called Happy Hell-o-Ween; Underworld Tours.  I wrote it in a couple of hours (after getting up three times in the night to jot down notes) and then let it simmer in my head for the day. I edited it that evening and submitted it. In 18 minutes, I had an acceptance.  The editor called it “a gem”-  made my day.

It’ll be out in September, 2011, I believe as it is a Halloween Anthology.  Check out the other books at the publisher’s website. I’ve got stories in several of them. I’m in Dear Valentine;  Christmas in Outer Space; Free Range Fairy Tales; Halloween Dances with the Dead;  and It Was a Dark and Stormy Halloween.  There are some amazing writers there.  http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/WhortleberryPress

New Anthology Released Today

My short story, The House on the Bay, came out today in an anthology published by Whortleberry Press called Dear Valentine. This is a collection of Valentine’s Day Stories with a sci-fi, fantasy or horror twist.  You can order it here: http://www.lulu.com/product/paperback/dear-valentine/14445736

My story is a ghost story with a high school girl as the protagonist.  There are 20 stories in the book and they are all by great writers. I hope you’ll check it out.  Here’s the awesome cover and back:  I like the way the names on the back are in the shape of a heart.

Why I’m Digital

Standard

Sony Book Reader PRS-600 Touch Edition

I am already digital- Absolutely! I have an e-reader- being a writer who is published both under her real name (print and digital) and a pseudonym (digitally)- I would be an idiot not to have one. Trying to market e-books w/o a reader seems almost criminal, doesn’t it?

I have the Sony Touch. I like it except I wish it was wireless- that books could be uploaded w/o the usb cord. AND the battery life is not as long as I’d like since you can’t read while it is charging.

Check out my story called Pimps and Hos: http://www.lldreamspell.com/DreamspellMysteryVol1.htm

New Anthology I’m In

Standard

It’s a Valentines Day anthology. My story is called The House on the Bay.  It’s a spooky story and I’m proud of it. It has an element of romance and an element of spookiness.  Not quite sure of a release day as yet. Will post when it releases.

Here’s the cover. I like it a lot. 

Southern Sizzle Blog

Standard

I am one of seven members that blog on the Southern Sizzle Romance blog. We each blog one day a week. Saturdays are my day to blog. I have dubbed my day Bad-urday as I feature bad boys of fiction- books and films.  This month is our one year anniversary as a group blog. We have Dianna Love as our guest blogger of the day and she’ll be blogging about her series co-written with Sherrilyn Kenyon. The heros of these books are all employed by the BAD Agency. An agency so secret, even the CIA knows nothing about it. It is an awesome series.  Not paranormal which is usually Sherrilyn’s forte.  I love these books.  The first is Phantom in the Night. I bought it at LaGuardia Airport on a trip home from New York a few years ago- before I ever knew Dianna- and I loved it. 

The second one  is Whispered Lies (my personal favorite),  and then there is Silent Truth.  On September 28, 2010, a novella will be released.  It is in an anthology called Deadly Promises and I’ll be lined up to get it.  It’ll be my only one that isn’t autographed so I’ll have to wait til I see Dianna again to get that one signed.  She’s an awesome writer and a great person.  I highly recommend her work- I hope you’ll all drop by and check out the SS post on the 14th- here’s the link:

Here are the covers of the books so far- there are more coming in the future- stayed tuned as I’ll  update you on the series as the books are released- here’s hoping for a long run.
