From Me to You ~ A Dragon’s Fated Heart series

So, after Rise of the Dragons and after Stealing Hope, the dragon saga continues in Finding Faith.

I’m nearing the end, hoping to have it completed before I go back to work next week. Past a couple of beta readers, then off to an editor.

While it is in front of them, I’ll be searching for a cover. Writing the blurb. You know, the hard part!

Faith has taken a couple of journeys to reach the final product, from being a total brat that I couldn’t stand, lol, to a feisty and no holds barred young lady on a mission. I’ve taken so long to finish it because I’ve written it three times!

Finding Faith, which is totally not a religious book by any means will probably end up in Amazon’s religious section, lol. Two of my other books have landed there. I’m sure it is because of their titles. Sorry Amazon! Not sorry.

Here’s a sneak peak of a bit of the beginning of Finding Faith:

Crag leaned over and snagged a little piece of pink cloth from the floor. Clenching his fist, he brought it to his nose. The scent assaulted his nostrils. He breathed deep, the spiciness 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. “Just find my sister.”

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.

Hope you enjoyed!

from me to you! fun is coming!

Oh I’m excited! I didn’t post anything yesterday because I hardly spent any time at home. I’ve been on the hunt for something in particular. We finally found it! We had to go get it and it was a 4 hour round trip. So, here are the pictures.

We are so excited to finally get an RV! 28 foot, bed in back and over the cab and even the dinette can be a bed for munchkins.

 

It even has a bathroom! You may assume that is normal-I did too. Until I found post after post selling RV’s that people had removed them for more storage. Yeah… storage vs. private bathroom. Nope, call me not interested! One even had it removed and added bunk beds. They had to be really small!

Finally, finally, after close to a year of searching we found one we both liked. So, now we can take the RV to Niagara Falls for vacation. And I’ll check out to see if there are campgrounds close to the book signing in Iowa in August.

For now, we’ll be outfitting it. Getting a couple of things checked out and adding. My hubby wants a rear view camera. After driving it two hours home in the pouring rain, I have to agree! That will be one of the first purchases, besides sheets.

So, I’ll try to keep writing while I have a new too to play with.

From Me to You!

I’m getting ready to go out the door for a Brat Fry. It’s a fundraiser for my AMVETS today. Only 3 this summer! I’ll be working until noon and then heading into work to work on my rural adjustments. Ah, the life of a Postmaster, lol!

Well, I did NOT make my goal of 5000 words last weekend with the girls gone. I *hanging head* started watching The 100 and got addicted! Nothing like a post apocalyptic show to hook me, lol. l haven’t even been reading much.

Which is not all my fault! If you follow me on Facebook, you know my paperwhite is dying. The battery is not holding a charge. So please, I need a new one so buy my books! LOL. Everything seems to go back to Amazon!

My two newest books:

Willow’s Cry

When you’ve pissed off Mother Nature, anything can happen…

 

Blurb:

Alex is just a regular guy… who can hear the wind speak and the earth talk, not a bad thing for a Park Ranger if a bit unusual. His life is everything he desires. Until Mother Nature expresses her displeasure at his family’s threat to sell the land they had been charged to protect. Alex is left to try to stop the sale, finding a damsel in distress along the way who wraps herself around his heart.

Happy living in her tree, observing the world without joining in, Willow has yearned for Alex for years. Too shy to emerge, the little nymph is suddenly catapulted into Alex’s arms, her tree destroyed during a massive storm.

Mother Nature has a plan and she’ll do everything she can to force Alex’s family to continue their roles as guardians, even if it means sacrificing one she protects.

Free on KU!

And

 

A Dragon’s Treasure

A dragon’s most desired treasure is his mate, but what if she didn’t want to be?

 

Blurb:

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.

A dragon’s most desired treasure is his mate, but what if she didn’t want to be?

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

I’m obsessing again! From Me to You

Many of you know, I obsess over dragons. I’m working on Finding Faith right now. My daughter and granddaughter are on vacation in California, so I have the house to myself. And my husband, lol. But, he works graveyard and goes in early a lot. A LOT.

So, with Dragon Naturally I get a heck of a lot more done than I do typing. So, my goal is to get at least 5000 or more words done by the time they get back. We’ll see how that goes! The girls left Thursday, God awful early. So Thursday I did a bike ride and relaxed after work. Okay, I’m not going to lie… I thought the bike ride was going to kill me. I decided to add some hills to our normal ride. NOT a good idea. But I made it, home and in one piece.

It was bad enough I had to battle a huge spider just to get out of the house, then I found one trying to go for a ride with me. Where ever he landed, it wasn’t on me!

(If there are any spider shifter books out there, I don’t want to know. That man would have been dead in minutes at my house, lol. No one would ever know he existed!)

My writing today will be a little delayed. I’m handing out White Clovers for AMVETS today from 10-noon. Then I’m heading to Deforest for a DRAGON FESTIVAL. Awesome! I might find more dragons for my collection and maybe some inspiration! Possibly I’ll find some dragon essentials to hoard for a giveaway when Finding Faith comes out later this year.

So, while I’m writing the second in the series, catch the prequel:

Rise of the Dragons

The apocalypse has come. 

Dragons awaken to once again reign over the skies.
Dax and Jasima explore and try to save what they can of mankind.

Their children’s future depends on it.

This is the prequel for a Dragon’s Fated Heart series.

and then Book one of A Dragon’s Fated Mate 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.

From Me to You ~ What do you do in a reading slump?

OMG, do you ever get sick of everything you have on your kindle? That happened to me this week! I love to read. Even more than I love to write. I have done some of that this week but I NEED to read. But nothing appealed to me. I flipped through my whole TBR pile and nothing caught my eye. I even started reading three or four different books but put them aside. Not that I normally wouldn’t read them, but ugh!

So I thought about what I felt like reading.

Nope, no dragons (gasp!) No lions, no tigers, no bears. No sweet, no BDSM. No sci fi – romance or otherwise. No historical. Ugh. Then, I thought, oh! Mountain Man! So I downloaded a couple of Frankie Love books. Oh man, I love me some Mountain Man’s Babies books.

Slump is gone! But since I’ve read all of Frankie Love’s Mountain Man’s Babies books, I need to find some more. I’ll have to see what else she has written, but I sure can’t wait for the next in the series. Poor Jonah is the single man out on the mountain. He has to eventually find his happily ever after.

I’ll keep reading the series until Frankie is tired of writing them!

https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Ddigital-text&field-keywords=frankie+love+the+mountain+man%27s+babies 

In other news, I’m adding to Finding Faith. I have a deadline in my head, but I’m not saying! If I do and I miss the deadline I set then everyone will know I missed it. This way the only one I disappoint is myself! It will be out this year. That I guarantee.

The flow is going well when I have a chance to write. I’ve taken over babysitting so my daughter can study. She has to pass her next two tests to stay in the nursing program. That trumps me writing! I want her to get her nursing degree. Once she graduates and has a good job, I’ll be able to relax and get back to finishing more books.

So I’ll do what I can, to keep writing and keep my family moving forward!

Have a good weekend, I’ll be behind my computer, putting more words down.

 

 

From me to you ~ Saturday in Madison WI ~ Madtown Author Daze!

Short and sweet!

I’m still working on Finding Faith. She is about to have a rude awakening. She’s seen a dragon but she never imagined they were also men! But, I’m taking a break today to be at a book signing.

So, if you’re near Madison WI come on over and say hi!

No automatic alt text available.

Lots to do in the area besides meeting some awesome authors! All genres of books will be there.

We’ll be in the lobby of the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art. The Farmer’s Market is just down the street and State Street offers up a mix of funky shopping and a whole range of bars and restaurants to enjoy.

Head on over and make a day of it! Don’t forget to stop and say hi! You’re more than welcome to stop and purchase books, too, lol.

I’ll have my newest release along! Willow’s Cry on sale in paperback for $5.00 for an autographed copy!

Can’t make it today? I’ll be in Minnesota next month! Illinois in July. August in Iowa and back in Wisconsin for September and November!
