Mythos Monday: Grimm

It’s been awhile since I did a Mythos Monday post. Mostly because I’ve been not just up to my eyeballs, but over my head with edits. Fortunately, though, edits for Kissed by Darkness are done and turned in, ready for Montlake Romance to republish. I didn’t think this book could get any better, but I really think it has.


Kissed by Fire edits will be starting shortly, but in the meantime I’m having a little breather. Between showing a friend around London and a short visit to Paris this week, I’m writing a short story for the Eclective’s next collection (out in June). Not only that, but I actually have a little time to blog. So, I’m talking Grimm.

Writer Wednesday: Return of the Grammar Nazi

I’m on my last round of edits for the Montlake version of Kissed by Darkness and I’m pretty sure my eyeballs are bleeding. It’s been a challenge for sure, but I’ve learned a heck of a lot and my book is going to be even better for it. Morgan Bailey is tougher, sexier, and even funnier. HUZZAH!

Writer Wednesday: The Quest for Eternal Youth

A couple of my friends, Heather Marie Adkins (writing as Nolia McCarty) and Julia Crane have teamed up to write a fantastic new novel called Eternal Youth.  I was able to catch up with the ladies over virtual coffee and find out a little be more about magic, collaboration, and the quest for Eternal Youth.

J: My favorite part is traveling aspect of the book, as well as the search for the elusive Fountain Of Youth. I’ve always been fascinated with the legend. Of course, the older I get, the more I’d like to find it on my own…

Writer Wednesday: The Conversation

Ashley Judd - from her website
 “I hold that it is none of my business what people think of me. ” – Ashley Judd

I’d already put together a post for today, when I stumbled across a post by actress Ashley Judd .  It was a post so important, so moving, that I felt I MUST share it.

It’s something every person should read.  It’s a topic which must be talked about. It’s something that, in my opinion, needs to change in our culture.  And it needs to change NOW.

Mythos Monday: Goddess of Love and Cupcakes

Before we get stuck into today’s post, why don’t you hop on over to The Eclective blog for a super smexy video review of Books That Don’t Suck.

And now, onto the mythos.

My trip to Tenby, Wales continues to inspire me.  Despite being eyeball deep in edits for Kissed by Darkness (Pretty sure my Montlake editor – bless her socks – is half demon and half genius), I’m working on a short story which will be in The Eclective’s latest anthology due out in June.  And who should make an appearance in said short story, but the fabulous Welsh goddess of love herself, Branwen!
