What's to come for me....

So I sold my series Chronicles of the Cursed to Aspen Mountain Press, can we say wooohooo. Which bring me to a total of 6 books coming soon.

I do have tetative release dates on 4 of those books so let me schedual that out for you .

Luck of the Irish - Tentatively March 30, 2007 Aspen Mountain Press
When Dina's boss assigns her to review a local family restaurant called Luck of the Irish on St. Patrick's Day of all days, she isn't happy. Upon entering the establishment and seeing all the staff dressed as Leprechauns, she expects passable food and annoyingly cheerful service. What she got left her breathless.

Connor had always known what his destiny held in store for him. When the gods finally bestowed their gift upon him, he never expected his destiny to take place in a pair of sea blue eyes. Now, he finally understood why a four leaf clover is considered good luck.

The Prophecy - Tentatively April 2007 Forbidden Publications


Danan McClintok is a Prince of Eloisia, an Immortal, who against all traditions wanted more from his life than to live in pampered pleasures, he wanted his one. An urge he could neither explain nor resist came over him and drew him to the seeing Stone and earth. Earth, where only the eccentric or the damned go.

There he spotted a woman who drew him like no other, she was kind and giving. He sensed a pureness in her that he wanted to embrace and protect. She was his one. He could feel it. But how could that be? She was mortal where he would live forever.

Against the wishes of his Queen, and the warnings of his friends, he courts this mysterious beauty that has captured his heart, to learn in the end that she is the answer to the age old Prophecy, of the foretold True King and Queen.

Wet and Wild: Lifemates - Firm July 1, 2007 Forbidden Publications

Benton Chaser was the black beaver of his clan. Seeing the pain and suffering his father experienced when his mother was killed. He refused to accept the laws of the clan and find his one true mate. Preferring exiles to the pain he knew was in store if he gave in and the revenge he got seducing the wives of the men who ripped his family apart.

Until he met a feisty Widow name River Maples, who gave the wild animal on her property sanctuary and greeted all men with the barrel of her shot gun. He'd tried everything he could think of to approach her and could only succeed in his were-beaver form. Yet he can't deny the pull he feels towards her, could she be the one thing he'd been running away from for the past hundred years?

Chronicles of the Cursed: The Ravenson Project - Tentatively July 6, 2007 Aspen Mountain Press

Malek DeWinter, learnt the hard way that the Raven Lord he'd thought had aved him from death so many years ago, wasn't what he appeared to be. After a night of passionate lovemaking with his new found mate, he wakes from his cursed sleep to find himself chained to the dungeon walls. With his mate at the mercy of his Lord, the house he'd thought had abandoned him comes to his rescue. Can he make things right before it's too late? Or will he lose his true love to the hands of a traitor?

Chronicles of the Cursed: Blood Hunted - NoDate Set Aspen Mountain Press

Nicolai had lost all hope of finding his mate. A hundred years alone left a vampire jaded. Until he agreed to take on a fiery little spy who saved his house, his Sire and his heart. Now he just needs to convince her that joining his side is the only way to survive the coming battle and remove the Demon from their midst once and for all.

Kelly Ravenson, had been through enough heartache and heartbreak since being turned to know that trust needed to be earned. The women of Raven house needed her. Could she really leave them unprotected just to follow her heart?

Chronicles of the Cursed: Touch of the Wolf - NoDate Set Aspen Mountain Press

New to this world of darkness, Xavier is paired with a human experienced in the ways of Wolf house to attend him. When they'd introduced him to the woman, he'd thought Lady Bella insane. Annette Valdetti was difficult, head strong and completely immune to his charms. Will he wait too long to realize how truly special she is?

Annette didn't want to be the newest wolf's Attendant; she had enough on her plate helping Lady Bella with her Keeper duties. Unfortunately she never could say no to the Lady of the house. The cub was arrogant, conceited and she'd fallen completely in love with him. Can she teach the cub how to survive in this new world he's found himself in and protect her heart before it's too late?

I'm sooo excited by this, I can burst. LOL

Well I heard back from Aspen about Chronicles of the Cursed, and it's a yes. Woohooo So I thought i'd post a few blurbs for your enjoyment.

Chronicles of the Cursed: The Ravenson Project

Time on my hands

Well... I went to work today feeling very nervous, to tell you the truth I was tempted to call in sick. You see, the VP of the company was down for a few days and well that never bodes well for anyone. Anyway let's just say that I now have plenty of free time on my hands as of today.

What does that mean you ask me? Well let me tell you...

1- I no longer have to be up at 5am.

2- I can spend more time writing my little heart out. hehe

3- I can play online till the wee hours of the morning.

4- I have to start sending out resum├ęs and going on interviews. I think I'm going to throw up. I hate Interviews

5- I knew I needed to move, but the new question is to where LOL

and finally...

6- You get to read alot more of my works of fiction.

More writing = More submissions = More Books sold for your reading pleasures.

Life is ever changing, or so they say. But I'd like for life to stand still a little longer so I can stop feeling queasy from all the earthquakes LOL.

PS: Hey Dawn, I'm up for that BIAW if you are.

Now for your viewing pleasure....
