Summer Fun

Hi all!

To those who commented on the Night Reigns deleted scene I posted:  Thanks so much!  I've been working on Night Reigns copyedits and didn't have a chance to respond until yesterday.  I'm so glad you liked it!  The larger scene from which I cut it is one of my favorite scenes in the whole novel.  Hopefully it will be one of your favorites, too.

And to those who participated in Brenda Novak's Annual Auction for the Cure of Diabetes:  Thank you!  I'll be mailing off an autographed copy of Darkness Dawns with a signed cover flat and mini-bookmark to a winning bidder this week.  :-)

I have various and assorted bits of news to share with you today.

I received some wonderful foreign rights news from my editor.  Kensington sold the first 3 books in the Immortal Guardians series to Germany!  Ausgezeichnet!  I'm very excited!

I'm also participating in the big Sizzling Summer Reads Party that's going on right now at The Romance Reviews.  The Romance party lasts through the end of June.  Then the Erotic & GLBT party begins and continues through the end of July.  They're giving away LOTS of prizes, including not one, but two autographed copies of Darkness Dawns.  I also will be chatting in The Lounge tomorrow, June 7th, so I hope you'll drop by.

Another great event currently enticing romance readers everywhere is the Bookish Haven Summer Vacation going on over at Paranormal Haven and Larissa's Bookish Life.  I'll be Guest Posting on June 14th at Paranormal Haven and hope to see you there.  The subject:  Those Brave, Beautiful Paranormal Brotherhoods.  I'll also be giving away a signed copy of Darkness Dawns to one commenter.  Yay!

When not engaged in the above, I plan to write furiously on Book 3 in the Immortal Guardians series, update my webpage, and pamper my struggling veggie plants (this heat is horrible!).  I've already picked a few habanero peppers and boy are they hot!  Seriously, if you ever try cooking with these, wear gloves.  I cut one up and handled the pieces with my bare hands once and my skin felt like I had dipped it in boiling water for hours afterward.

I do so love spicy food, though, so it was worth it.  ;-)

Have a great week everyone!
