The Spell - my cover and edits

After a grueling round of first edits and some re-writing that I feel pretty good about, I heard from my publisher, Siren-Bookstrand that The Spell is with a line editor and should be coming back my way. It's always a boost when I feel that something doesn't quite fit but I can't quite put my finger on it and an editor succintly gets it. I cut almost 10,000 words from the story and feel it is much tighter.

Meanwhile, Skylar Sinclair has given me yet another brilliant cover. NOW we can see just what Ryan Michaels looks like!

Michael's Flight - Descendants of Earth Book 2

When I wrote Jason's Accord I meant it to be a stand alone book. It wasn't until my editor, Bea, talked to me about one of the characters, Michael, that I saw future books and a series. This is Michael's story and my edits arrived today.....yikes!

Fortunately my editor at eXtasy is one of the best people I know and an outstanding editor.

Her Eyes

I was thinking about my post for this week and realized in all my excitment about new contracts and other goings on in my life I hadn't said much, if anything about the books I have out. Her Eyes is the book that led me to His Eyes which will be out with Bookstrand later this year. It also has a special place on my writer's shelf. When Jennifer Cloud and I heard about the first face transplant surgery, the woman in France, we talked about it, both of us seeing it from not just an author's perspective but in each others. She writes horror/thriller and I write mostly sweet romance although I've been known to go a bit spicey. I told her it sounded like the start of one of her fantastic horror stories where the person who donated the face had issues and wrecked havoc on the new person's body. Her response was it sounded more like one of my sweet romances where you get the chance to come back and do it right. Her Eyes evolved from there.

Catherine White tries to murder her husband and his dog save his life by attacking her. She ends up with a face transplant and before long Frank begins to see changes in his wife. Catherine is kinder, gentler, most affectionate in bed. A neighbor suggests that perhaps there is a walk in and Frank begins an oddessy of finding out just who is wife is. Before he can though, Catherine makes another attempt on Frank's life.

That brings Detective Mike Malone on the scene and Mike has his own story in His Eyes.
In Her Eyes, based on the adage that the eyes are the window to the soul, we ask the question, when you look into her eyes, what do you see?

The Glass Cage, Book 2 of the McKenna Crime Series

A few days ago, right after I signed my contract for The Spell with Siren, I finished book 2 of this series, The Glass Cage and right now it is with a Beta reader. I got to admit, when I wrote the scene with the occupied stolen vehicle I found myself holding my breath, just like I used to on a code 3 run!

The Spell has a home!

Sitting at my desk Monday morning, immersed in editing a brief, my phone cell phone that is. Coming out of my immersion in the brief I wasn't quite sure I heard it right the first time -- Siren-Bookstrand wanted to contract both The Spell and His Eyes! I bounced in my chair doing my own odd-ball happy dance! It totally made my month!

The Spell will be released in October with Siren and His Eyes in November with Bookstrand. It's going to be a fun summer!

Finding America's Hero -- posted by Ryan Michaels

While we're waiting for our story to be picked up and worked on, we characters from the Spell got together and decided to help out another of our author's characters, Austin Quinn, by telling the world about his contest. It started today and the winner will be announced on November 10 -- the Marine Corps birthday. That's a special day for me too because before becoming an ATF agent I was a Marine. So here's the scoop:

In America's Hero Austin Quinn plays America's Hero,
Major Cass Winters IS America's Hero
Now is your chance to nominate America's Hero and Help me find Austin Quinn

America's Hero is my newest time travel and due out with Champagne Books ( in March 2009. Austin Quinn is a Hollywood hottie and he has played not only some of the greatest heroes America has seen, he's also played such icons as Achilles and Robin Hood in his movies.
Major Cass Winter is a Marine Corps F/A-18 pilot who just wants nothing to do with the Hollywood hunk. Through a freak incident, both are thrown back in time to before the walls of Troy.

contest with hopefully something for everyone.

Very Special Agents by James Moore, ATF Retired

I'm really big on being factually accurate, even in fiction. When I started writing Ryan from The Spell back in 2003 -- yes, it's been through a ton of re-working as I honed Kelly, the heroine -- I tried to find an ATF agent to make sure he was factually accurate. Not a one. They are truly the epitome of the strong silent type.

As an agency they have been bounced around from umbrella agency to umbrella agency and all the while maintained their professionalism. I knew this from things I'd seen, but finding someone to ask about it wasn't happening. Then I came across Mr. Moore's book and what an eye opener. And....he confirmed in the opening chapter that they are indeed the guys who hang in the background do their job and go home.

So, now, with that in mind -- what kind of powerful spell would make even a stalwart guy like Ryan take the left hand lane?
