I missed February's post because I was getting totally lost in other life situations...and I ALMOST missed January's, but was reminded that I was MIA. So March's post is being done waaayyy early, so it won't be missed again.

After a three-month battle with a "sorta-flu-like" bug, I am struggling back to life. Of course, that means nothing to my recalcitrant muse, whose back remains turned to me as she totally ignores my pleas for assistance. 

(Damn auto-correct is driving me totally nuts...that's the second time I have had to back-track and change "please" back to "pleas".) Same stupid thing happens when I am typing madly away on my keyboard to write what little I have written, and when I re-read the lines, I find that my stupid auto-correct has changed a dozen words. I would turn it off if I knew how.

I truly must say that I admire all of my author friends who seem to manage to actually write stuff. If my back list wasn't selling as well as it has been, I would be bankrupt. And that would mean I absolutely HAVE to get off my fanny and write something again.

Now, because I have been so sadly un-a"mused" lately, I am going to do a little giveaway today. Not a big one...just a tiny one. This one is dedicated to my missing muse. Because she is refusing to cooperate at all, I am going to give away an autographed copy of "Broken Rules" to some lucky commentor. This post will go live on March 13, and I will choose one comment from all those who leave one before St Patrick's Day at midnight. 

That gives people a four-day chance to win. I have forced my grandson to pick a name out of the hat before, and I will do so again. Here is the book cover so you'll know what you are tossing your name into the hat for:

 Broken Rules was released in print for Romanticon 2012, and then came out on the sales sites in November 2012. It contains two of my menage novellas, Her Own Set of Rules, and Double Your Pleasure.

In your comment, you MUST leave me your first name and your e-mail address so that I can contact you for your mailing addy. If there is nothing but a Yahoo or Google nickname, your entry will be ignored. I am tired of trying to follow a trail of bread crumbs to figure out how to contact my winners. :)

Oh...and if you know who the models are, I will toss in something special when I mail out your prize.  I will ask that question when I contact my winner, so please don't put that info in your comment. 

Please note:  If there are more than 20 comments, I will send out a few secondary prizes, so there are more chances to win something. 

You have until midnight on March 17th...so have fun.

Wonderful cover, isn't it? So sorry you haven't been feeling well. This year has been a tough year for a lot of folks and none of us have muses who are talking. I suspect they're all off at their own convention!

So happy to hear you're finally better. It's been a long time for you to be so down. Your muse will return. I think it's taking a little vacation with that gorgeous hunk on your cover :-)

Sounds like 2 great stories in one book.

What a great giveaway. Such a beautiful cover. I wish I knew who the models were. Glad to see that you are on the mend.I cannot wait to see what your muse comes up once you both are back up and running at 100 percent.
