It's Official: GLADIATOR Finds A Home

My book, GLADIATOR has scored a home with MuseItUp Publishing. Where I will again be working with Tanja Cilia whom I had the pleasure of working with as my editor on No Ordinary Love. I know I'll have to work on this particular piece as I was a bit manic when I wrote it but I am thrilled that my third book this year is with Muse.

I'm not as prolific as say, oh, Lin the masterful blogger, authoress extraordinaire that she is, but I am currently doing the happy dance as I loved writing that story and am currently embroiled in writing the second book in the series ORACLE. Instead of Daniel Craig as the hero it is the delightful Ryan Reynolds. I saw a preview for Safe House and suddenly saw him in a sexy gritty way that hadn't been made apparent to me by his other roles (that I'd seen). 

I'm not sure what movie this is from but it's perfect as a writing totem of sorts. The fact my hero currently has a gunshot wound lends some interesting facets to this picture. Other than that let's just call this what it is, an excuse to worship that body.

Also January is coming up and I believe I will be receiving my first royalties check from MuseItUp Publishing! Yay! That means I've sold enough copies of No Ordinary Love to score a $20 check. Which may not mean much to some but it means a heck of a lot to me. It means people have bought my book and may buy others by me.

Which means when Another Way To Die comes out I should have some people wanting to buy it as well. Fingers crossed. If your interested in checking out either of those stories the buy and pre-order links are located in to the sidebar. The gorgeous coves are by Delilah Stephans. I don't know if I'll luck out and get her again for Gladiator but Muse has a fantastic cover art team who work their butts off. 

Lea, thanks for being such a gem. I know I'm a handful sometimes but maybe I can make you some money at the end of the day ;).

A special shoutout to Jude Stephens and Teresa Kleeman of No Boundaries Publishing, you all are wonderful, and if your looking for a home for your books checkout or

Hello, and I just have to say I think that particular photo of Ryan is taken from Blade:Trinity. I know this because it was the first film that made me sit up and take notice of this very fine example of man!
