Reviews for Something Wicked This Way Comes!

Thank you to all the reviewers and readers who have loved this book. There's been such a lot of great feedback!=)
Just recently the anthology got a 5 ravens review from BlackRavens Reviews and a recommended read. Here's an overview: 

This is the first erotic anthology I have read and I can barely express in words how much I enjoyed every story. The skillful writers made a fantastic team during the collaboration of their ideas. These authors blended together so well that the stories flowed seamlessly. The stories were off the chart in levels of heat generated sensuality. What a dynamic team of writers. They hare heavy hitters that knocked me for a loop. Their writing styles and depictions of the settings, characters and events put me in awe and deep appreciation of their talents. All of the tales were terrific and there were no duds in the group. Wow!!! This is volume one and I look forward to the next installment.
Reading this anthology introduced me to another group of authors who I will follow, read and invite others to share the sensual eruptions I encountered. Fabulous work everyone Bravo!!!!

Update and ramblings...

So 2011 is almost DONE!! I can hardly believe it! My children are all growing up WAY too fast (well, one is already grown up at 21 lol!!) my little grandson seems way too smart for his little boots - and I have another grandbaby on the way!!!! 
To top it all off, I can scarcely comprehend that next year my eldest daughter (the pregnant one) will be far away from me, moving with her boyfriend to where he's been offered a job that's too good to knock back. A good 10 hours drive away. 
Me thinks my car will doing a lot of km's!

Onto the writing front...I've fulfilled most of my own writing schedules for this year, and added getting book 2 finished in the Alien Hunger series before 2012 rolls around. I also managed to complete a short story of around 5500 words, for an anthology with my erotic loop. You'll hear lots more on that next year...

Speaking of next year, I have a whole new paranormal series planned (well, I have the characters in my head, the storyline is amazingly fuzzy) and hope to write 2 or maybe 3 of those books (more on that later...)

I also want to write the 3rd book for the Alien Hunger series, plus a couple of standalone books for Ellora's Cave, one of which is the very start of a book I began a few years ago.

And last but definitely not least, I'll finish the single title book I was so damn excited about, but which I've neglected far too long already! =)) 

And I'm so stoked to see Something Wicked This Way Comes, is in the top 100 romance on Amazon and hovering around the 500 best sellers in both Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Thank you readers!! *smiles*

One Perfect Night

I'm thinking tonight really is 'One Perfect Night' for fellow 209Bootcamper, Rachael Johns whose book debuts today at Carina Press!
Way to go Rach!! May you have many, many sales =) 

Peppa Grant's fellow employees may call their new CEO Mr. McSexy, but she's also heard that he's aloof and distant. Cameron McCormac certainly seems cold toward Christmas when she meets him at the company's annual party...but he's also the sexiest man Peppa has ever seen. And when he offers to forgive the damage she accidentally caused to his expensive car in exchange for accompanying him to his family's holiday get-together, she agrees.
Cameron needs a date to the family party to get his matchmaking relatives off his back. Their chemistry is instant and undeniable, leading to an incredible one-night stand. But Peppa wants love and family, while Cameron's only interested in temporary pleasure. When their relationship takes an unexpectedly serious turn, will he run the other way—or will he give love a second chance?

Movie Marathon

I had a bit of a movie marathon yesterday with one of my daughter's and watched some great dvd's. (1$ Tuesday is always a great day for movie watching) 

The first movie we watched was Rise of the Planet of the Apes. I loved this movie, the storyline was fantastic with the smarter than smart chimps injected with a new drug to make them even smarter to then uprise against humans and their cruelty. (But then I grew up watching these movies, and loving them.) ((8.5/10))

Next, we watched Bad Teacher. It was seriously funny - and not slapstick funny, it showed a dark kind of humor I can't help but enjoy. And I think Cameron Diaz was brilliant in this one as the teacher who cares more about the expense of a pair of big breasts she thinks she needs than she does about her students. ((7.5/10))

Hanna was dvd number three. I'd been wanting to watch this one for a while, about a genetically enhanced young girl trained like an elite soldier by her 'dad' to fight and kill. It was different to many of the 'hollywood' movies and to me felt more like an European style of movie. ((7.5/10))

And then who could go past the Lion King - well Miss four couldn't! 

All in all it was a great day to treat the muse - and I even managed to write another couple of thousand words on book 2 in the Alien Hunger series :)

Movie of the Month

Okay, so this movie - Equilibrium - isn't a new release (2002) and mightn't be to everybody's taste, but I really enjoyed watching this for the first time last night. (Comparable to The Matrix).
I totally loved Christian Bale's role, and though he reminded me at times of Tom Cruise - in my eyes he's a much MUCH better hero.
I really liked the storyline, which had the hero and his lethal army of men killing off any humans who show emotion and who refuse to let go of any of their possessions, the same humans who are supposedly at risk of creating another war, which no one would survive. 
Bale is the top dog, assigned to get rid of these humans without question. But then he begins to question the logic of the drug all the humans have to inject themselves with to numb themselves to emotion. When he stops using the drug all together, he soon discovers all he's missed out on and joins the very people he once killed.
Though he had an unworldly skill as an assassin (you may have to suspend belief) he  has to protect his son and daughter, and then goes to great lengths to protect a pooch who adopts him as an owner... 
Totally loved this movie =)

Captain of Nara’s Heart
Laurann Dohner

Nara knew she was taking a risk with illegal trading. Sure enough, she’s been arrested, caged—and will be auctioned as a sex slave. One look at the scary alien buyers and she frantically makes a deal, agreeing to be sold to Captain Vellar, who turns out to be large, sexy and seriously in heat. Offering her body to the captain is a given…but Nara didn’t expect to lose her heart in the process.

Dragon Heat
Mel Teshco

A highly skilled operative, Grace has been trained to track, fight and kill paranormal creatures. Only after she’s in the clutches of her latest target, a devastatingly sexy dragon-shifter, does she discover betrayal in her ranks. Suddenly the hunter is the hunted. Grace will soon discover her ex-agency’s horrific agenda—but not before seeking solace in all the pleasures of the flesh her new dragon ally has to offer.

Dangerous Addiction
Desiree Holt

Having finally realized his dream to own a ranch, Cord is ready for the next step—settling down with the perfect sub. And he’s found her in Fallon. A single glance from the smart, sultry beauty makes him hard, but abuse at the hands of her ex-Dom has kept Fallon away from the lifestyle she loves. Needs. It will take bondage, mind-blowing sex, a gentle hand and expert flogging for Cord to help her rediscover her favorite dangerous addition.

Highland Tryst
Eliza Knight

Having sworn off love, Kari Howard isn’t adverse to a little lust when a hot Highlander lands at her feet. Literally. Fin has traveled through time, and given what he’s packing under his kilt (good Lord!), Kari expects the sexy Scotsman to make her quake. But she didn’t expect Fin to shake her very foundation…or cherish her for who she is.

There cannot be good without evil, light without dark… At a seaside resort, lovers Sam and Anita meet a mysterious, heavily tattooed couple who refers them to Sinful Designs. The owner is a witch whose magical tattoos grant scorching, kinky sex beyond their wildest fantasies—but there’s a catch. Each successive tattoo comes with a darker and scarier curse. Sam and Anita can break the spells…but at what cost?

The Addiction

John Calder has everything most men would kill for—golden-Adonis looks, endless money, a steely reputation as a savvy businessman and beautiful women throwing themselves at his feet.
