Upcoming Releases - Robyn Grady

Robyn Grady is one of my all time favourite category authors. She also happens to be the nicest person one could ever hope to meet - a wonderful writer friend =)
A regular on the Waldenbooks bestseller list, it's clear Robbie is a favourite with many other readers too.
Here are just two of her upcoming books:
The Billionaires Fake Engagement - released in October
Devil in a Dark Blue Suit - released in November (love that title!)

When Eden Foley walked out of
millionaire playboy Devlin Stone’s life, she vowed it would be for ever. He knew just how to make her tremble with desire, but he was dangerous! Now, forced to contact Devlin, Eden is stunned – he wants to pick up from where they left off. Even worse, her traitorous body seems to agree!

Will one night with Devlin mean she can finally move on with her life…? Or has this devil in a dark blue suit got other, more pleasurable plans in mind?

A scandal threatened one of Australia's most powerful bachelor billionaires. The solution? A proposal.

Alexander Ramirez was committed to the idea of family, and Natalie Wilder certainly brought the right assets to his bedroom. The engagement that he'd intended as a media distraction soon became a real possibility. As one obstacle after another got in the way of his plans, Alex became more determined than ever to keep Natalie in his bed. And he always got what he wanted.

More Great News! - Christina Phillips SOLD!

Christina Phillips sold His Forbidden Princess in a two book deal to Kate Seaver at Berkley Heat!
These books are scheduled for release sometime in 2011 - HUGE congrats Christine!!!
Here's the blurb taken from Christina's blog (

As Rome conquers Cymru, Centurion Maximus falls under the spell of ethereal Druid princess, Carys. Charged by his Emperor to eliminate all cursed Druids before they rise up against their new masters, Maximus is unaware of her heritage and is determined to possess her and discover where she and her kin are hiding from the might of the Eagle.

Despite knowing he's the enemy of her people, Carys is fascinated by this commanding foreign invader, a barbarian who displays unexpected honor, and willingly meets him in secret to satisfy her desire for sexual pleasures. But when Maximus captures her heart her loyalties are twisted and freedom from Rome is no longer her single-minded obsession.

As the summer solstice approaches Aeron, the High Druid and ex-lover of Carys, gathers the dark gods to crush the enemy into oblivion, the Druids into submission and Carys to his will. Maximus and Carys must defeat the encroaching devastation, overcome the prejudice of their warring gods and opposing cultures and find a way for their love to survive.

Wind Kissed, Fire Bound - Anna's latest release


As Keeper of the Winds, Livia Cavalli needed to focus her power on keeping the evil Tempest Winds trapped in their island prison. What she doesn't need is to be distracted by sexy horse trainer Rafe Donovan. Three hundred years ago, Livia became an immortal Keeper to numb her emotions, but Rafe arouses her in a way she hasn't felt for centuries.

For Rafe, Livia is a challenge he longs to solve--and take to bed. Once she's in his arms, their desire is overwhelming. But when his own powers reveal Livia's secret pain, he realizes taking her body isn't enough--he wants to heal her soul, too...

WIND KISSED, FIRE BOUND is now available at and all major online booksellers.

Watch out for the next story in the WindKeepers series, TAKEN BY THE SOUTH WIND, out in October.

I can't believe another year has flown by!! But I think honestly this has been one of my favourite birthday 'days' I've had for a while. It's so special to me when two of my three girls (one is too little, the darling) make a chocolate cake with sprinkles on top as a number for my age and a big wrapped parcel which included a ped egg for my cracked feet LOL! And all this the night before! I went out for dinner tonight and had a beautiful meal with my hubby - a rare event! lol. Now to top off the night I'm hoping to write a heap of words for Ice Cold Lover. Want it finished ASAP!

Book of the Month and September Reads

What can I say - I absolutely loved this book. It seems people really do either love or hate Stephanie Meyer, but I'm quite a fan. Anyone who can wring out emotions like she does gets a tick from me. =)

"The Host" is very *very* different to her Twilight books - better, IMHO. Alien souls implanted into human bodies and living on earth while 'real' humans hide themselves away in caves to eke out an existence - brilliant! I'd like to say more - particularly about the heroine, but I won't spoil it. Just read it =)

September Reads:
A Spanish Vengeance: Diane Hamilton
Destiny Kills: Keri Arthur
Foretaste of Forever: Christina Phillips

September: Quote

Sometimes you have to go on when you don't feel like it, and sometimes you're doing good work when it feels like all you're managing is to shovel shit from a sitting position.

Apologies! (Email Address)

To anyone who may have tried to email me about Stone-Cold Lover, the Mel Teshco address on the Ellora's Cave website is incorrect! I'm guilty of not noticing for way too long that there is no .au on the end of .com!!! Ellora's Cave assure me it will be fixed soon =)
In the meantime feel free to email me at

Stress, Creativity & Writing

It's been more than obvious to me lately that my writing has suffered thanks to some personal stuff happening in my life. (nothing serious) Words seem to be jammed somewhere at the back of my numb brain. Still, I know if I was on deadline I'd have to push past it, have to forge ahead no matter what. It's made me wonder how other writer's have managed this with their own problems (though I guess we mostly put big name authors on a pedestal, above the sea of swimming sharks). Love to hear anybody's personal experiences with this, and what/how they pushed through it =)
