I’m Away Today, Care to Join Me?

Today, author Courtney J. Hall has been kind enough to turn her blog over to me to talk all about the darker side of Mind Control and the Medici Protectorate series. Darker side, you ask? Well, if you want to know what I mean by that, you’ll have to join us over at her siteContinue reading “I’m Away Today, Care to Join Me?”

How Do You Picture Your Characters?

When I first picture my characters, they’re kind of faceless, perfect specimens. I can see their eyes, but not in their faces. Or their noses, but not on their faces. The jawline, the full lips, the wavy hair… whatever. Each perfect individual characteristic, but not the whole picture. I kind of like it that way.Continue reading “How Do You Picture Your Characters?”

Happy Release Day, Mind Control!

Is it possible? Could it be? Yes, at long last, it’s finally here. Happy Release Day, Mind Control! As many of you know, the Medici Protectorate series is dear to me because of its connection to my grandfather and my heritage.

#PNR Boxed Set—Paranormal Attractions

It seems like we’re inundated today with boxed sets and PNR stories. There’s a good reason for it—paranormal romances are enticing reads, and boxed sets are great values. Recently I had the chance to participate in my first boxed set, a paranormal romance set with eight other authors. I didn’t know most of them, butContinue reading “#PNR Boxed Set—Paranormal Attractions”

Eavesdropping on Characters In Pittsburgh

Visits home are few and far between. Most of the time is spent with family, but if I can squeeze in a trip to the city, I try to. Ride the incline, shop at the Strip, catch a game, cruise on the Clipper, visit a museum… The list is endless, really, when I sit downContinue reading “Eavesdropping on Characters In Pittsburgh”

Two Mythologies, One Post

As you know by now, Love Set in Stone deals with the mythology of the gargoyle—the stone creature who perches on the tops of buildings and watches over humanity, scaring away evil and protecting the innocent from any harms that might come their way. But there is another mythology referenced in my novel, one thatContinue reading “Two Mythologies, One Post”

Tuesday Teaser—Love Set In Stone

My paranormal romance, Love Set in Stone, released this month. I admit, I could have done a better job of promoting it. It’s been a crazy busy year, and I guess promotion has fallen by the wayside. {hangs head in shame} I feel really bad about that, because it’s a pretty nifty story. Gargoyle. Angel.Continue reading “Tuesday Teaser—Love Set In Stone”

I Blew Out My Candles And This Happened…

If you get my newsletter, you already know this. (And if you don’t get my newsletter, why don’t you? Sign up here.) Yesterday was my birthday. I share a birthday with Robert Downey Jr. Every year when I blow out my candles, the wish goes something like this… I close my eyes, wish that someoneContinue reading “I Blew Out My Candles And This Happened…”

Tuesday Teaser—Love Set in Stone: Damien and Anael

We’ve talked about Love Set in Stone before, so I don’t think I’m letting any major plot points out with this little teaser. And even if you missed the earlier discussions, the title and the cover art certainly give the premise of the book away. If you still don’t get it, I’ll be blunt. TheContinue reading “Tuesday Teaser—Love Set in Stone: Damien and Anael”
