The winner of a free eBook this month was Terri Shaw. Her book’s been sent, and I hope you enjoy the story, Terri!

I’m blogging on SEx (a.k.a. Silver Expressions) tomorrow, and will be running a contest for a copy of my vampire paperback (and a surprise goodie, too!), with the winner to be announced at the end of the day, so… Do stop by and chat/comment, all right? I think it’s going to be fun. The URL is http://www.silverexpressions.blogspot.com/

Contest news and notes

Hey there. The FREE eBook contest is still open, so please do feel free to send in an entry, all right? I've set it to end first week of July 2007, so there's lots of time, and soon there will be new books to choose from, as well.

I've done edits and see some cover sketches for the Greek Fantasy novel, and I think this one is going to be great! ALL the new covers I'm seeing are fabulous, truly.

I'll be blogging at SEx Blog next Saturday, the blog for Liquid Silver Books, Silver Expressions. Drop in, there's lots happening. The first two books from LSB should be coming soon, and I can't wait! Talk to everyone soon....

Oh, and despite some computer glitches, the new REBEL KNIGHT installment has finally been sent to AMC1902, so it should be on the site any day now, honestly!! I'm working on the third chapter now, so stay tuned for all the silliness.

The new Victorian mystery cover...


Just got a look at the new cover for the first Devane Files book. It’s gorgeous!! I hope when this one comes out that people like Inspector Michael Devane, because I am really looking forward to writing more stories for him. At the moment, I’ve done final edits on the first Liquid Silver Books release, so it should be available soon. Will keep everyone posted, as always. Simply The Best is a contemporary action/adventure, with a mercenary hero. I seem to be jumping all over the place at the moment!

My contract with EDGE Science Fiction & Fantasy has been signed and delivered, so I’m now “officially” on the roster. This book is one that is really special, a lot of work went into it, and several years worth of waiting, too. If you like Greek Mythology, or were a fan of Hercules and/or Xena, you just might love this book!! I have a tentative date for next Spring, and I can’t wait.

Not much else at the moment, but then the week is still young, right? More later, no doubt…

Oh, and don’t forget to check out the new Nick Red Cloud adventure. I’m working on Chapter Three: Spirit’s Edge, as we speak!!

Contract expired

Okay, my first AQP contract has expired, as of June 16th. So, A SAFER HAVEN is no longer available, but I do hope that isn't permanent. Will keep everyone posted.

Also, the contest is still open, so if there's a book you'd like to have, send me an entry, all right?

My first full-length erotic novel is on the coming soon page at Liquid Silver books, so it shouldn't be too long before it's available for purchase!

Not much news, for a change. More later.... I've been busy with edits, mostly, so I hope to have new books to announce very soon!

New releases getting closer!

Not much news to pass along this time. I’ve spent most of the week doing edits, so at least the books are moving along, right? I’ve done the first two sets of edits on the Greek Mythological fantasy novel, and at the risk of sounding somewhat arrogant, I do think this book is going to be very good. There’s a romance theme throughout, but it’s primarily a book that combines mythology and adventure. My next fantasy, which is underway, will be fun, too, I think. Pirates, magic, sorcery… All the fun stuff!

The first round of edits have been done for the erotic adventure novel, too, so it may be available in a month or so. I don’t have a date yet, but I’ll let everyone know as soon as I do! Plus, I’ve just signed my second contract with Liquid Silver Books, for my erotic Victorian mystery, with the Jack The Ripper connections… (The Devane Files Book One: OUT OF HELL) So, that will be available later this year, at long last. The next three installments in the Devane Files are already planned and/or written, so I hope you’ll take a few minutes to meet the good Inspector when the time comes for his debut.

I’ve also made a couple of new submissions I’m waiting to hear back on, and I’m in the process of preparing proposals for two of the Kensington Books imprints. Wish me luck!

I think that’s it for the moment. Don’t forget to check the AMC1902 site during the next few days for the second chapter of REBEL KNIGHT, Silver Springs. I’m working on chapter three, which is called Spirit’s Edge, and should be arriving in less time than it took for chapter two!!

Oh, almost forgot, next month I’ll be posting a new short story to the website! FREE, of course. I’ve actually got two ready to go, I just have to decide what goes first, right?

*NEW* Rebel Knight and other odds & ends

REBEL KNIGHT: Okay, a couple of weeks late, but it’s finally finished, and will be posted within the week, at least that’s what I expect at this point. Thanks to everyone who’s been sending comments and waiting patiently for the next installment. In future there will not be this kind of delay between chapters. I’ve got the next six plotted out already, and now that my publisher problems have been sorted out, things are moving along nicely again! The first reviews for REBEL HEART have come in, and it looks like Nick Red Cloud is a pretty special guy. I knew that!! Seriously, the reviews have been especially appreciated this time, given the nature of Nick’s past tale, and I am very grateful for the thoughtful and kind words of the reviewers. So, thanks to everyone who’s taken the time to read about Nick’s past, and I hope you’ll stay with us as his adventures continue…

In other areas, I’ve got a tentative release date for my first non-erotic novel, the Greek Mythological fantasy, AS FATE DECREES. It should hit bookstores in March/April 2007. And, I am hard at work on my next fantasy novel, too. This one is called BETWEEN TWO WORLDS and involves some pretty exciting elements! Will keep ya posted, as always.

And, two new non-erotica romance titles are in the works. All the news is posted to my website now, and there’s been some change on the site, too. Non-erotic titles are now on the MORE BOOKS page. Also, if you have a minute, check out the new PR PAGE, where I’ll be doing a month-long promo for Lucy Monroe, who’s work is very, very special. Like Lucy herself, I might add.

My first-ever interview is now officially scheduled for September, with Romance Junkies. And, my first Liquid Silver novel should be available in a couple of months — and it IS a hot one, so be warned!! All in all, lots is happening just now! I’ll be posting dates as I have them, and I hope you’ll continue to drop by the website to pick up occasional freebies and just say “Hi!”

Before I go, I’ve just posted a promo/blurb for a terrific vampire novel by my friend Barbara Custer, so take a minute to look at that before you leave, okay?? It’s right after this…

Twilight Healer


TWILIGHT HEALER
by Barbara Custer

Amnesia and work related hassles become the least of Leslie’s worries when she discovers she has become a vampire. Though this has some advantages, among them a healing gift, the need for blood and the facts that she is now a part of a centuries old war with other vampires and demonic deities of legend are drawbacks. To have the man she has come to love, to have a life, she must stop Drusilla, an otherworldly vampire, and fight Hades.
