#Procrastinating!

Sooo. I’m sitting here wearing my Lularoe leggings, my ‘My Patronus is Tyrannosaurus Rex’ tshirt and wondering why I’m writing my blog instead of diving into one of my books I’m working on. I’m also debating on cutting the lawn!

Real exciting! LOL. It is beautiful out and it is definitley distracting me!

My granddaughter should be being dropped off soon so I hate to get into my book and then not be able to get back to it.

Does that sound like an excuse? Yeah, it does to me too, lol.

Spring fever! I think I have it.

Plus, I hate editing.

I tried to show how many edits I have to go but I can’t seem to copy the page!

So, here’s a short excerpt of A Dragon’s Treasure (mid editing, lol):

Dragons were eyed warily when they finally stepped out of the realms of legend. The last group of shifters to make themselves known to man. Too many shifters had been exterminated when they disclosed their existence. Dragons had lived too long to not be wary of man. Unlike most shifters, rumors of dragons had existed since man began to walk. Little did they realize Dragons walked among them.

Kai’s heart ached. He’d lost his parents more than two centuries past. Superstition and hate were a powerful motive. Bounties on the lives of dragons, sent fool-hardy hunters after them. His mother had been caught unaware, pierced through the heart by a crossbow.

His father had gone berserk. His revenge against the hunters bloody. Kai burrowed deeper into his pile, anger gripping him. His father had been paraded around the village, head hacked from his body and displayed on a pike. He breathed deeply, releasing a stream of steam that rose from between the coins. He ground his teeth, remembering.

He missed them.

Kai and his siblings had eradicated the village. He rumbled, eyes gleaming. The satisfaction of seeing his parent’s murderers plead for mercy was a balm to his soul. The blood had flowed, their bodies torn apart. Kai swallowed, the metallic taste of their blood, one he wouldn’t forget. The repercussions had torn the siblings apart. Forced to flee and separate to save themselves, Kai had rarely seen them since.

That was just a random bit from Chapter One. It gets steamier and not just from Kai!

Coming June 16 in ebook and paperback!

Okay since it is going to be out, and I want it to be good, consider I now #amwriting!

Just a dirty five letter word!

Today I’m at the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art

227 State Street, Madison, WI 53703

11am – 400pm

 

 

Feel free to stop by and say hi! This event is free to the public. 35 authors will be there along with live music.

Kick off Madison’s Farmers Market by stopping and shopping with us.

I’ll have signed copies available for sale of Stealing Hope, A Saint’s Salvation, A Sailor’s Delight and Love Me Forever.

A Dragon’s Treasure is at my editor’s (Magic Wand Editing). I’m on the hunt for a cover and still hopelessly lost when it comes to figuring out my blurb for the back cover!

How about this?

Kai has been hunting for his mate for a very long time. Biding his time, he searches for her finally settling in Wisconsin. Something drew him back every time he left. Giving in to the pull, he stays.

Connie is a college student. She witnessed a murder and is running for her life. She decides to hide with her cousin and is attracted to Kai from the moment she meets him. Until he opens his mouth.

Kai has no problem claiming Connie as his mate. Too bad she doesn’t agree. There’s that whole ick factor going on that she can’t ignore. Kai will do his best to change her mind, one kiss at a time.

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

Eh, it’s just a start! My mind is on getting ready for the signing and blurb is just a dirty five letter word!

A Dragon’s Treasure will be released June 16. I’ll be in MN at a book signing and it will be available there on release day.

Fairy tales do come true–and so do tabloid scandals! New York Times Bestselling author Marquita Valentine kicks off a juicy contemporary romance series with a novel about a prince whose best-laid plans go deliciously awry when he marries the maid next door.

Forced to flee to the United States with his siblings after their parents’ assassination, Crown Prince Colin Sinclair takes it upon himself to become the caretaker of his family while hiding out near Charlotte, North Carolina. But after a decade in hiding, the secret’s out and Parliament demands that Colin wed a princess of their choosing. Unwilling to play their game, Colin decides to marry an American instead, and he has the perfect candidate in mind.

As a home-service professional, Della Hughes doesn’t believe in storybook endings. But when her best friend and secret crush reveals that he’s a flesh-and-blood prince, she doesn’t know what to think. Still, she’ll do anything for Colin, including becoming his wife–in name only, of course. But when their plans to stay purely platonic go by the wayside, their fake honeymoon turns all too real. After a week of white-hot nights, Della can no longer deny her feelings–not with a happily ever after so tantalizingly close.

Are you ready to get Dirty Sexy with a Saint?

Clay Kincaid knows he’s more a sinner than a saint. Especially when it comes to women. With a rough and damaged past that has left him jaded, he doesn’t do committed relationships. But he does like sex—the hotter and harder, the better. He likes it fast and filthy, which is why he refuses to even touch someone as sweet and guileless as Samantha Jamieson. Until he discovers that she likes it just as down and dirty as he does.

I’m drowning!

My room is finished.

The move is finished. My daughter and granddaughter are now at home with us. I’m tip toeing around a sea of boxes and baby toys. Today, I experienced getting ready for work while getting a toddler ready to go. It’s been a long time since I had to do that. I could have gone a lifetime without experiencing it again!

I’m soooo glad she’s a cheerful little critter when she wakes up!

I actually managed to get some laundry done. I was so excited. LOL, pretty sad, isn’t it? With our lives up in the air, no routines have been established. I’m trying to find a place that I can write again. I’m currently in an odd and uncomfortable position while writing my post. No way can I finish a book like this!

My computer is practically upside down. I think I’m going to go on the hunt for a desk again. It just has to be small enough to not crowd out the room, but large enough to have my laptop and room for my coffee and notes.

I’d like to get an old cast iron sewing machine bottom and build my own. Maybe I watch too much Flea Market Flip! But since I love to sew, that would combine two of my favorite things! Isn’t this gorgeous? I’d do it with just a bit bigger top so I could add a file cabinet on one side and some type of drawers for all my pens and papers that I jot notes on.

Tomorrow I’ll try a new spot to write in. I have to hide my computer from my granddaughter. Anything that is Grandma’s she thinks is hers! She’s already taken over my Kindle to watch Sesame Street on. In the meantime I’m on a hunt for an old sewing machine.

As always, you can find my books at my Amazon author page!

img_20160416_154323That makes me feel like the cartoon Cathy, lol. I was heading to bed when I realize I was so busy writing, (#amwriting) I forgot my blog post for Saturday morning! So here I am, midnight, writing my post.

The house was quiet when I got home. My hubby had to go to work at 6:00 pm tonight. I get off work at 6:00 pm so we didn’t see each other. It is a rare day anymore that I get to go home to a quiet house. I took advantage of it and wrote! I have 30 pages to go to polish up A Dragon’s Treasure and I’ll be sending it off to an editor.

So, exciting times! I love my dragon books more than the rest, lol. Sad, but true!

On the home front, though, my drywall man cancelled on me! I found another who will be coming out tomorrow for an estimate. He also said he can start on Monday. I have less than 2 weeks before the girls move back home! I just hope it won’t break my pocket book!

suzy-brileighYou can see the fun we’ll have with these two.brileigh1

Bri loves to copy cat, lol. She is happy to make animal sounds and her pig snort cracks us all up. We’re looking forward to it and dreading it all at the same time!

I have no clue how I will find time to write with the little munchkin in the house. I’ll probably have to sneak off somewhere. Or lock myself in a room. But after I had my pituitary tumor removed, I decided that family has to come first!

It always had, but sometimes the time was grudgingly given! You never know how much time you have and I’d like to spend it with the ones I love. (That gave me a bit of a scare!)

Now I just have to get back out to see my son in California. He’s a Marine and loves it, so he isn’t close to home. But that is okay. He has his life to live and we chat on Facebook and text.

nick-suzy-brileigh We did see him this summer for our niece’s wedding. It may be another year before we visit him again. We’ll have to see! But first, I have to get the house done!

Combining two households into one is not going to be fun! Especially when I haven’t been able to take any time off. The only days I’ve had off, I’ve ended up babysitting. Fun but it doesn’t make the house any cleaner!

So on that note, I’m heading to bed! I’m up bright and early tomorrow to clean and get that estimate!

 

Just remember, if you can be a unicorn, be a unicorn! Be yourself and be unique! See, I’m a unicorn, lol.

Another Saturday already!

I actually managed some writing this week!

Got a little bit of A Dragon’s Treasure done and started a bit of a new manuscript. I’ll see if it goes anywhere. Sometimes I’ll write a bit and table it for the future. Or it will end up in another story all together as I find it fits there.

I have a huge folder like that, lol.

Here’s a bit of A Dragon’s Treasure. Mind you, it is unedited! At least by anyone other than me.

His dragon wanted her, desired her and was demanding he keep her safe. He knew she would be if she became his.

“Mate me.” A moan was his only reply. His chest swelled at the glow on her body, the satiated look on her face. “Mate me.”

“I can’t, not yet.” Coldness spread from his heart. He withdrew, sliding out of her warmth and the truck. He stood, staring at her. Kai needed to understand why.

“Why not?” A sigh was his answer as Connie sat up, pulling her bra and top down with a curse as she struggled to pull it over her breasts. Kai eyed her, enjoying the pink tipped treats as they disappeared from view.

“I just can’t. I’m waiting.”

“Waiting for what? You are my mate. Why should we wait?” Connie’s nostrils flared as she listened to him. Kai knew the impatience he felt was evident in his voice just by the look on her face.

“Move. Out of my way.” Connie was scrambling to get her bottoms on as she slid across the seat. “I don’t have to explain myself. You don’t own me.” She pushed him aside, grabbing her pants and sliding them on. “When I’m ready I’ll let you know. With that attitude, it will be a good long while.” She snapped her pants, adjusting them around her tiny waist. Even that sounded pissed.

Kai ground his teeth and let her go. He wasn’t sure exactly why she was in a snit. Connie had been a bit secretive lately but that could have something to do with the wedding they were planning. He truly wasn’t pushing as hard as he could be. Kai could just take her and make her his mate without her permission but he didn’t want to be in her bad graces. Kai was pretty sure that would not be a very good idea.

He’d have to let her come to him. Dragon’s just were not patient, especially fire dragons like him. Their passions ran as hot as the flames that ran through them. If he changed her and she was pissed, he wasn’t sure that he would want to face her.

His eyes followed her to the house. Despite everything, Kai could feel the danger closing in. If he didn’t change her before the danger arrived and she was injured or killed, he would never forgive himself. But he couldn’t force the mating on her, Connie had to submit of her own free will.

****

Connie knew she was being unreasonable as her feet hit the steps of the porch with loud stomps. Kai wasn’t asking anything that she wasn’t asking herself. She needed to sit down and talk with him. He just overwhelmed her sometimes.

“Connie, you got mail.” Ellen sounded excited as she handed it to her. Connie looked at the address. It was from UW. Taking a deep breath, Connie opened it and started reading. She looked up at Ellen. “Well? What did it say?”

“Ellen.” Connie looked at her, trying to stay calm. Hell with it she thought. “I got in!” She ran toward Ellen and started jumping up and down as they hugged and laughed. “I got in! Oh, my God! I can’t believe it!”

dragon-heart

I hope you like it! It is coming closer to the end. Then an editor. I just have to have the time! I have a drywaller coming this week to finish up the bedroom I’m working on. Then next week I’ll be able to paint and start moving in. That will entail going through 23 years of junk from my bedroom. *whine* Not to mention the leftovers from my kids in their rooms!

Well, I’m off to babysit the adorable granddaughter! Have a good Saturday! If you’re looking for something to read, check out my author page at Amazon!
