Magnetic, or How I Used To Be Interesting

Well, maybe not. ;) But every now and again I discover from my website statistics that someone has read an old blog post, and I read it too. I’ve had this blog now almost 4 years, and at one time, I aimed to be philosophical, educational and humorous. But things have evolved, and now it seems I’m mostly promotional. :( I miss the old me, but the new me is pretty busy with deadlines and family and not quite as witty as I once was. So if you’re reading this, you’re apt to see infrequent posts with “portentious” news, like this:

Margaret Rowe will have a short, “Wicked Wedding Night,” in the November 2011 Berkley anthology, The Agony and the Ecstasy. I’m excited that one of my critique partners J.K. Coi has a fabulous, twisty story in it as well. There will be about 20 5,000 word erotic-ish stories, and it was fun to have Margaret come out to play.

Copyedits for Margaret’s Any Wicked Thing were finished last week. Sebastian and Freddie are two of my most favorite characters. He’s a depraved duke, she’s a bluestocking, there’s a castle—what’s not to like? :) An excerpt on the Books page will be going up soon.

I’ve ordered new magnets, so if you enter either of my contests this month, expect some in the mail when they come in to thank you for your efforts. Last month I mailed out new bookmarks to everyone who took the time to enter. I truly appreciate everyone who’s along for the ride with me! This month’s prizes are an ARC of Mistress by Midnight , two copies of Tiffany Clare’s sensuous The Surrender of a Lady, and a fantastic excerpt book. There’s still a week left to enter on the Contest pages.

Next month debut author Theresa Romain will have me on as her Guest Author of the Month. There will be a big book giveaway, and I’ll let you know when the interview post goes up.

So that’s it for now. As you can see from the pictures, I could not decide on the design for the AWT magnet, so I ordered three different styles, LOL. Which do you like best?

    They’re all pretty, I can see why it was hard to choose. But the blue one with Mistress by Midnight really stands out, and that lovely bare back, oh my! So I would say that one is my favorite.

    Barbara & Nikki, I love MBM’s cover, so the blue was a natural. AWT is so different, very soft-focus. I’m thinking I like the purple background, but as I said, I could not pick just one!

    Hi Maggie! I’m really looking forward to having you on the site next month (which is, whoa, next week). And congrats on more good news re: The Agony and the Ecstasy!

    Jiminy Christmas, your covers are gorgeous. I wouldn’t have been able to pick one magnet style either, though I think the purple’s my favorite. It frames the cover and makes it pop out a little more. Hooray for finishing copyedits!
