The Glamorous Life of a Romance Novelist

It's Saturday night and I haven't left my computer for hours. Not only am I working through revisions in one book, I'm getting ready for a release in two more days and that means loads to do.

Not very glamorous, eh?

Well, I try to make up for it when I go to romance conferences or reader events. I force myself out of yoga pants and wear a fun dress. Take off the glasses and wear contacts. Pry myself away from my laptop and socialize with people. Maybe even put on a pair of earrings!

I wouldn't trade in the neck pain and bleary eyes for anything. I've wanted to write novels since the sixth grade. So getting ready for a book release is the biggest thrill I can think of. Well, after getting married and having kids and all that jazz, ha ha.

So here's my new baby. Being released in two more days!

Knights of Stone: Lachlan

Knights of Stone Lachlan
As the new alpha of his gargoyle clan, Lachlan takes on a leadership role at the historic peace talks between the wolf shifters and tree witches. Cooperation is crucial to their survival. The magical veil over the Isle of Stone is weakening. But unity is hard to achieve when tensions are running high. So is Lachlan’s concentration when a sexy wolf shifter rushes to the talks. Her wild beauty is mesmerizing.
Raina has her hands full with pack problems, from pack mates succumbing to blood lust to animosity toward her species. The source of her problems is clear-the gargoyles. If they hadn’t lured the humans to the island with their unconventional rock concerts, she wouldn’t have to deal with the fallout. She wants nothing to do with them, especially their alpha. His not-so-surreptitious glances are hard to miss. Nope. Not the kind of attention she needs. She’s heard rumors of the rebellious, attention-seeking rockers–and of their endless string of females.
But when humans come to investigate the wolf attacks, Lachlan and Raina must work together to coerce them off the island. And time spent together sparks a forbidden attraction. If unexpected love were their only problem, they’d be able to deal with it. It’s not. Time is running out, for them and their island.
