From ME to YOU

I was beginning to worry I wasn’t going to get anything new out for the rest of the year!

However, I opened Willow’s Cry and it just seems to be flowing. I normally don’t set up chapters when I write, so I always fix that when I go back over it. First manuscripts NEVER stay the same! I’m nearing the end, happily, of my first draft.

The bulb in my head just switched back on and my creative juices are flowing again! Woo hoo!

I don’t think I’ll force it trying frantically to make NaNoWriMo next month. I’ll informally try to reach my goals without having private freak out moments when I see I’m behind.

So, I’m happy, I’m writing, and I’ll keep on putting out books! My dragons are not playing nice, I’m a bit befuddled, but eventually they will come back out to play.

But maybe not like this, lol.

From Me to You

I’m heading into West Bend WI for the second to last signing of the season! If you don’t know, and I suppose I don’t really mention it, in my day job I’m a Postmaster. Once November hits the madness descends! A whirlwind of packages and cards and Holiday stamps. My life stops and picks up again in January, lol. For those two months nothing but the career I have spent 29 years doing happens.

I’ve tried NaNoWriMo in November a few times. BUT MY LIFE IS MADNESS by then. I’ll probably try again this year, knowing it is probably futile. I don’t have the time to go to meetings and share the spirit of camaraderie while I type my fingers to the bone. I hide in corners of my house typing away while getting up early to put in a word count. Shoveling food in during lunch hoping I don’t spill on my computer. Getting home means putting dinner on the table, corralling the granddaughter (who, praise the lord! is taking to potty training like a duck to water) and hopefully putting in a bit of a word count.

I guess I’ll have to wait and see!

Come on out and meet me while I’m happy, lol. I’ll smile again in January! (Just joking! I’m so upbeat I drive people crazy, lol.)

So I’m trying to get one of my books out before then. I just don’t know which one! It all depends on who talks louder in my head.

In the mean time, enjoy my books that are available!  https://www.amazon.com/Beverly-Ovalle/e/B00BOGT8MU/

 

From Me to You #happytobewriting #oopsIkilledhimoff

I played hooky last Saturday! I couldn’t think of a thing to write.

Nada, zip, nothing.

I’ve been in a bit of a slump. I’m stuck on my dragon story, Finding Faith. I’m stuck on my erotic short, Triple D: Enticed by the Cowboy. So… I went into my manuscript file to see what caught my eye. I settled on a bit called ‘the old lady’. LOL. I think I should call it, ‘I’m not old, dammit!’ I read it, laughed and started writing again. From the story line so far, I must have been pissed at my husband. I killed him off! 28 years of marriage and being a writer will do that I guess.

Better than arsenic or a bat when he’s sleeping or any of the real ways to bump him off!

So, I’m not sure where this will lead. A middle aged… cough cough… romance probably. Dead husbands, meddling family, even if they mean well, and who knows? maybe a ghost! No clue where it’s headed, but at least I’m writing again! I moved my desk up into a corner in the bedroom. Writing in the dining room wasn’t working with my daughter and granddaughter now living with us. But wrapped in pajamas and finally comfortable and able to reach my computer even in the middle of the night to write will do wonders! I write when I’m happy I guess, and comfortable.

Since my husband helped me get my desk situated, I wouldn’t bump him off now, but since I already did…  🙂 I’m going with it! If I look, I probably have more bits like that. I have a temper and he sets it off without even meaning to poor guy! So I put it down in words and let it go. We don’t fight a lot, just snipe at each other for a bit and settle back down. When I hear my mother coming out of my mouth, I shut up, LOL.

So, catch up on some of my books, I will be putting something out still this year, though my schedule was railroaded with the girls moving back home. I’m too close to the end on at least three books to not get at least one out. So your guess is as good as mine which one it will be!

Here is the victim of my paper crime, lol. Pirate day at Red Lobster.

 

So, if you are in West Bend WI on Sept. 23rd visit me!

Saturday at the Hilton

A Dragon’s Treasure

Kai has been hunting for his mate for a very long time. Drawn to a singular place on earth, filled with treasures, he still seeks the greatest treasure of them all. His mate.

Fleeing danger, Connie runs into the arms of destiny, but she has plans already, and a Dragon mate is not on the agenda.

Kai has waited centuries for Connie, and he will claim his mate. Patience may not be a Dragon’s virtue, but he always gets his treasure.

Sparks fly in this humorous erotic tale of mating and mayhem.

I’m laying on a bed at the Hilton Milwaukee City Center. We just got back from my cousin Jack’s wedding. I figure, I’ll never get up in time to post on Saturday morning, so here I am, eyes drooping, writing this early early on Saturday. So I guess I am writing this Saturday!

Gorgeous hotel, built in 1926. Absolutely beautiful. I’ll try to get some pictures in the morning when the sun is shining and so is all the brass! The bathrooms in the lobby are marbles of different colors. Posh and I’m loving it! The best part? Our rooms only cost $65! The Hilton name means luxury and holy cow does it ever show.

So, I’m going to crawl into bed and zonk out. Saturday is here and I need some sleep!

 

Oops!

Okay, so I forgot it was Saturday and was so tired from coming home from my vacation, I forgot to post.

Totally irresponsible! To prove it, we went to the county fair today and here’s a photo.

‘When grandma babysits’ LOL. Hope you enjoy! My granddaughter did!

 

PLAYBOY ~ Logan Chance

Playboy by Logan Chance is now LIVE. For a limited time, you can one-click for only .99.

They call me a playboy.

Sure, I like to have fun with the opposite sex, but hey, in my line of work, who wouldn’t?
My name’s Jonah and I work for Bunny Hunnies, a swimsuit magazine. Calling the shots, and taking pictures of gorgeous women is every man’s fantasy, including mine.

That is, until Chelsea Sincock walks onto the set of one of my shoots.

I’ve known Chelsea since before she was this hot as hell vixen wearing nothing but a bikini.

What is she doing here?
Does her brother, Declan, know?
Did I mention he’s my best friend?

This is going to be hard, I mean difficult, to work with her. And the more I gaze at her from behind the lens, the more I realize I’m in way over my head.

 

 

From me to you ~ another Saturday in my life.

I’m back from vacation. Sigh. I have to get motivated to write again, lol.

But hopefully my refinished desk will help! I said I’d post a picture when google worked again for me. I just have to get up and start! Start to write. Not get up and get an ice cream! Which is what I want to do. 

So, here’s a snippet of what I’m working on. Finding Faith.

Crag leaned over and snagged a little pile of pink cloth from the floor. Clenching his fist, he brought it to his nose. The scent of flowers assaulted his nostrils. He breathed deep, the scent pervading his lungs. It curled inside of him, clenching his gut. He snapped his eyes open. Crag breathed the scent in again, savoring it. His dick twitched. Lowering his hand, he opened it and gazed down at the delicate panties. The scent assured him they belonged to his mate.

He turned at the gasp behind him. Hope, his brother’s mate looked at him in disgust.

“Is that necessary?”

His lips twitched. “Her scent is strongest in what she wore closest to her body.” He raised his brow, daring her to argue with him.

“Hmpf.” Hope shook her head and gestured for him to leave the room.

Crag shoved the lacy panties in his pocket. He didn’t need them, but he wanted them. Pleased with having something of his mate’s, he quirked a grin at Hope. Patting Hope on the head he turned and left. The growl from her was just a bit of icing on the cake. Crag shook his head as he passed Hope’s grandmother. The twitch of his lips the only sign of his amusement.

“Monster.”

The whispered word as she sidled past him had his head whipping around. His low growl had her gasping and escaping into the room he’d just vacated.

He hoped the grandmother wasn’t going to be a problem. If she became a problem Crag was afraid that he would have to take care of her. No matter what Hope or Ari thought. He would always protect his family first no matter the cost. She needed to be watched. He refused to have the humans rise up to harm him or his family.

Totally unedited! I corrected one error already, lol. I figure I’ll grab a large coffee and settle in to write while I have a peaceful house. Once 2:00 pm hits, the baby tornado will be home along with her mother! Papa (my hubby’s new name-I’m Mama Beb) will be up and we’ll head over to see my brother and sister-in-law who are in from Arizona. We’ll do it all over again on Sunday except the tornado will be with me all day. So I’ll have to make tomorrow count!

While you’re waiting for Finding Faith to get finished, check out Stealing Hope! Book one in the Dragon’s Fated Heart Series.

Stealing Hope

The apocalypse has come and gone.
Those who survived learned to adapt.
Dragons awaken to once again reign over the skies.

Upon eruption of a volcano, Ari awakens to a changed world, and a knowing that his dragon’s mate is near. He saves her twice—once as a dragon, and again as a man—and wins her confidence.

Hope cried out, moaning, “just change me with pleasure?”

Hope is restless and unfulfilled until she meets Ari, the man of her fantasies. The sensual tension between them heightens with every touch. When their passion explodes, Hope gets pulled into the dragon’s mating ritual…and into a world of erotic sensation she never dreamed existed but now cannot live without. The dragon binds his mate to him with a ritual that shows Hope her true nature in this humorous erotic romance.
