Yes! It’s that time of year. I debated joining in the fun, but finally decided to just go ahead and dive in.

What is NaNoWriMo?

National Novel Writing Month. It’s a time for writers or aspiring writers to join together with others and finish a novel in one month.

Sounds fun, huh?

You have 30 days to complete 50,000 words. And there is all kinds of merchandise–and even more if you complete your task.

It’s a way to motivate yourself to begin or finish that novel you’ve had in mind. With pep talks from published authors, online buddies to help spur you on, a daily word count calendar, and all manner of writer’s resources, it’s a good way to get going.

Don’t have a story to write?

You can still donate to the cause!

Yes, I know. I’ve been gone for a while. Between internet issues and doing a re-edit on several books I have the rights back for, it has been a little busy, with not much news.

But, later this month, you should see links for the re-release of Gambler’s Folly, Jareth, First Lord, and Viviane, First Lady. They all have new covers and have been re-edited for re-release. I’ll be publishing all of them as an indie author this time, so watch Smashwords and Amazon for them.

I also hope to release Gambler’s Folly Book 3–The Russian later this month. I think you’ll like the Russian. He’s a little rough around the edges, but he has been around for quite a while. And that’s enough to make anyone a little thick-skinned.

MORGAN–The Pixie and the Green Man and DANTE’S ANGEL are already available through Smashwords, with new covers. MASTER OF THE FLEET has also had a facelift.

So ready for a peek at the new covers?

See you again soon!

Today is the first day of summer–the summer solstice–referred to as Midsummer in some places.

According to some traditions, it is the time when the sun and the Green Man are at the peak of their power. Celebrations include dancing out in nature, bonfires, planting summer gardens, and lighting candles.

Some people tie strips of ribbons on tree branches as prayer ribbons, and visualize their prayers as they tie them on.

Whether or not you celebrate the occasion, it is a time to reflect back, on this longest day of the year, while you’re sipping iced tea, with maybe a sprig of fresh mint from the garden to sweeten it a little.

To celebrate midsummer, Morgan–The Pixie and the Green Man are on sale, now through June 30 over at Smashwords! So if you haven’t read it, go on over and grab your copy.

Happy Midsummer!

And don’t forget—

What if the Green Man isn’t a myth? Maybe he’s just a guy with unusual abilities…

It has been beautiful here for the past few days. Milder temperatures, sunshine, and lovely warm breezes sweeping through the trees and the bamboo around the house.

The type of weather that is a taste of heaven on earth.

It looks like we might be heading back for rainy weather in a day or two, though, which is fine. The tomatoes will enjoy the drink and the bath.

In the meantime, I’ve been writing a few words on Lady Calloway, to be published under Sultonna Nadine, and editing on The Trouble with Talents, the next book from Esperance.

So while I’ve doing some fiddling with these two books, I’ve been trying to figure out book covers. Always a chore. It seems no matter what I’m looking for, I can find anything else. (sigh)

Anyhow, here’s hoping you’ve had a wonderful weekend so far, and will continue the trend.

How about a brief excerpt?

Lady Calloway–

A man expects a few niceties when he gets home, and a proper kiss from his wife is one of them.”

“Why are you going on so much about a kiss? You know I love you.”

“Do I?” Kerrick asked, exasperated. “And how am I supposed to know that? Your kisses are sisterly at best, unless I press the issue. And in our bed, half the time I feel I’m committing rape. You agree to sleep with me, but show no passion for me. Can you even feel passion?”

Suddenly wanting to know if she could show anything at all, he pulled her to him roughly, one arm firmly around her waist, the other twined in her hair turning her face to his. He kissed her savagely at first, his mouth hard on hers, demanding, before his kiss became more sensual. At first she tried to struggle free, and then, for a brief moment, he felt the beginnings of awakening arousal, before she stiffened into her usual stance—endurance.

“Don’t, Kerrick,” she pleaded with him as he released her. “Please, never do that again. I can’t bear it.”
