Ladies and gentlemen, I'm ecstatic to announce the release of my newest novel, ENDURING INSTINCTS!  It just went live at MLR Press!  Click HERE to view it...and maybe even buy it :D

Just a couple days ago, I mentioned that this one could possibly be releasing today, and here it is!  I had a blast working on this story and spending more time with my vampires, especially giving Daniel and Ryunosuke a chance to come into their own.

I hope very much everyone who reads it will enjoy it, and my appreciation goes out to all of you who do decide to give it a read!  And now, I'm off to happy dance!

Ladies and gentlemen, it is my pleasure to announce the upcoming release of my next novel, ENDURING INSTINCTS.  This is my second vampire story, the follow-up to NATURAL INSTINCTS and Book 2 in the Instincts Series.  As of right now, it's looking good that it'll release this Friday, September 30th, at MLR Press.  Barring any unforeseen circumstances, that is.  Within a couple weeks after it goes live on the MLR site, it'll branch out to, and later to other book vendors and will also be available in print. 

Hope everyone who decides to pick it up will enjoy it!

Vampire Daniel Valente struggles to live on his own, now that his master, Titus Antonius Calidus, has found eternal love with another.  Carrying mental and emotional scars, he lives in loneliness and feels as though he's lost who he once was.

Ryunosuke Kimura has known Daniel for hundreds of years, and loved him for many of them.  Even though he believes Titus is the only one Daniel wants to give his heart to, when he hears Daniel needs his support, he rushes to be with him.

With Ryu at his side, Daniel's confidence returns, and with it, he sees the enduring love Ryu has always had for him.  As they grow closer, new threats from old enemies arise, and if Daniel and Ryunosuke are to spend eternity together, they must first defeat the past.

Weekly Inspiration - Edilson Nascimento...again

Hey, everyone!  Man, it's been so long since I've posted any Weekly Inspiration!  I apologize for that.  I've been crazy busy lately between my child, my evil day job, writing, my horses....yeah, the list goes on :-)  But since it's been a while, I thought I'd post one of my favorite models again, Edilson Nascimento.  He's a Brazilian model, and yeah, I've posted shots of him here before so he might be familiar to some of you.  The last I heard, he was taking a break from modeling for a couple years to spend time with his baby, but I could be wrong on that.  Either way, there are still plenty of pics of him around for everyone to still enjoy.  I never have been able to track down what seemed like an official website, Twitter, or Facebook for him, but if you do a search with his name, you'll get to see a whole lot more of him.  And now, enjoy!

I'm a Flirty Author Bitch

No, really, I am.  Well, in the sense that I'm part of the Flirty Author Bitches blog team.  Though, I have been called all three of those words in my life, just never all of them together until I was invited to take part in FAB ;-)  I've been part of the team for some while now, but it hit me I may not have mentioned that here, so now I am!  FAB is a blog made up of many authors including Lex Valentine, Charlie Cochrane, KC Burn, I mean the list is huge.  And then there's me, and I'm incredibly proud and humbled to share a blog with so many amazingly talented authors.

How FAB works is that everyday of the week, a different author writes a post.  It may be on writing, rants, life in general, any variety of topics.  My blog day is the first Thursday of every month, so I posted just this week.  And what did I write about?  "Insta-love" in M/M romance and my opinion on it.  You can see the post HERE, if you're curious to what I had to say.  You can also find a few other posts by me there, though not long ago, the site had to go through an overhaul and many of the older posts were lost.

So now that you all know about me being a Flirty Author Bitch, feel welcomed to stop by the FAB blog, and not just for me, but for all the very talented authors who post there every day!

Song of the Week - "Moves Like Jagger" by Maroon 5

It's been a while since I posted a song or some Weekly Inspiration, so I thought I'd offer a little of both at once in this Song of the Week post, since this video has the lead singer of Maroon 5, Adam Levine, shirtless and getting his rock star swagger on.  Yeah, watching him in this video reminds me why I've written so much about rock stars ;-)  So he's the inspiration part of this post.  For the song part, this is Maroon 5's newest single, and I have to say, I kinda love it.  How can you not love a song that's paying homage to one of the greatest rockers of all time, Mick Jagger?  Not to mention how sexy the lyrics are.  It takes a little while in the video before the music gets going, almost a minute, but trust me, it's worth the wait.

For more about Maroon 5, you can check out their official website:  You can also find all the links to their social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter there, and where you can purchase this song.

And now for my don't sue me message.  I claim no ownership or rights to this video, song, lyrics, music, imagery, Adam Levine (sadly), or anything Maroon 5.  All belongs to the rightful copyright holder(s).  Enjoy!
