Vampires of the World

Long before vampires became the suave alpha heroes many of us know and love, they were considered to be blood-sucking demons of the night. Vampires were terrifying creatures who haunted dreams, preyed on vulnerable women, and destroyed heroic men. Wanna read about those vampires? BundleRabbit is offering eight dark vampire stories (including my Fright Court, which skates just on the edge of dark…) You can download your copy from a variety of vendors — just tap or click on the picture above to see all the deals.

Nice Witches Don’t Swear

Nice Witches Don’t Swear

And now for something completely different… When New York Times Bestselling Author Robyn Peterman invited me to write a story in her Magic and Mayhem Kindle World, I couldn’t believe my good fortune.  Robyn’s an amazing writer — she’s funny and smart, and she knows how to give every one of her readers an over-the-top good time. Wait.  Let me back up.  Do you know what a Kindle World is? A Kindle World is a “sandbox”, a place for authors to play.  One brilliant writer — Robyn, in this case — creates a world that is full of amazing...

Fun Magic Books

I often hear from readers who tell me they’ve read all the Washington Witches and Washington Vampires books, asking me where they can find more books like those.  In the past, I’ve sent them to a few favorite writers, hoping they’ll come to love new series as much as I do. But recently, I decided to do more than that. I decided to build a website where readers can always find their next magical read.  The result? Fun Magic Books. At Fun Magic Books, you can browse hundreds of light paranormal novels by topic (witches,...

Bid On Me!

Once upon a time, I used to do a lot of editing-for-hire. I don’t have time to do that anymore, and I hate, hate, hate telling prospective new clients that those doors are closed. But here’s a bargain for someone! Maryland Romance Writers are holding their annual auction. And I’ve agreed to critique 30 pages of a novel. As of this posting, the bidding is at a paltry $10. I’m beginning to feel neglected. Unloved. Ignored. You can bid on this prize for yourself. Or for a friend. Or you can share it with interested...

The Way You Look Tonight – In Stores NOW!

One of the fun things about writing a series of small town romances is the chance to visit with old friends…  Whether it’s stopping by the Orchard Diner to catch up over a snickerdoodle and a cup of coffee or dropping into Harmony Skeins to buy the perfect yarn for a new knitting project, Harmony Springs feels like home.   That’s why I had such a wonderful time writing The Way You Look Tonight.  Here’s what the book is all about: A May-December romance fans flames in a small town… At the ripe old age of...

The bad news:  The sale is being managed by my publisher, and there are a...
