Now is the Hour - Death Match 2

I gots a head full of flu (no, it really truly doesn't have any connection to St. Paddy's) and am pitted in mortal toil with my old pal K.A. Mitchell. If you've got the time and the energy cast your vote(s) (from your multiple ISP addresses) for Come Unto These Yellow Sands.

KA is currently trouncing me, but all hope is not lost. Especially when MY fans sober up and stumble to their computers.

Vote here. Vote often. Vote me.

They Did the Mash. They Did the Monster Mash.








Drew Lawson is racing against the clock. He’s got a twenty-four-hour window to authenticate the mummy of Princess Merneith. If he’s not at his boyfriend’s garden party when that window closes, it’ll be the final nail in their relationship coffin.

The last thing he needs traipsing on the final shred of his patience is brash, handsome reality show host Fraser Fortune, who’s scheduled to film a documentary about the mummy’s Halloween curse.

The opportunity to film a bona-fide professor examining the mummy is exactly the aura of authenticity Fraser needs. Except the grumpy PhD is a pompous ass on leave from his ivory tower. Yet something about Drew has Fraser using a word he doesn’t normally have to draw upon: please.
With no time to waste—and a spark of attraction he can’t deny—Drew reluctantly agrees to let Fraser follow his every move as he unwraps the mummy’s secrets. Soon they’re both making moves behind the scenes that even the dead can’t ignore…

Coming Tuesday from Samhain Publishing

[Just Joshin] Book Trailer for Snowball in Hell

I think authors are as bewildered as anyone else as far as what works
for promotion and what doesn't. I don't know that book trailers sell
books, but they're relaxing to work on. What's not to enjoy about
matching pictures to music and mulling over the important elements of
your story?

Anyway, I worked on three trailers yesterday, and this one is the only
one that seemed acceptable to me. (The SO looked at it and said, the
music should have been the music of the era, but I really like the
juxtaposition here -- and the soundclip, a bit of a song, by Muse, is
absolutely perfect for Nathan's state of mind.)

Anyway. Voila.





Not sure if this will show up on LJ or not, so you might have to pop

Shake, Rattle, and Roll

Not what you think.

We're having internet connection problems. No, not exactly. Thanks to a massive, rolling update by the swell folks at ATT, we're having network problems. The words Network Problems should be in shaky letters like you'd find in an episode of Scooby Doo.  So to make a long story short, our home network is fried. We've fallen and we can't get up.

And the first person who giggles and says can't get it up, I'm going to reach through this computer monitor and smack. It ain't funny.

And how unfunny it is, becomes more clear with every day -- we're going on for day three now. I used to be such an even-tempered, mild-mannered...

Enywho, the fiend from hell that currently inhabits my body suggested  I do some quick promo for this book I have coming out next week on the 22nd, since I might not get another opportunity.



So here's a blurb and an excerpt to A Vintage Affair. It's a contemporary romance with mysterious elements. I'd say it's criminally funny, but...I have no sense of humor at the moment and I believe criminally funny has been already used.

A lot.

 Message in a bottle.

Somewhere in the cobwebbed cellar of the decrepit antebellum mansion known as Ballineen are the legendary Lee bottles -- and Austin Gillespie is there to find them. The last thing on his mind is hot and heavy romance with handsome bad boy Jeff Brady. But Jeff has other ideas and, after one intoxicating night, so does Austin.  

The only problem is they have different ideas. Jeff doesn’t believe in love at first sight, and even if he did, he’s buried more deeply in the closet than those famous missing bottles of vintage Madeira. Popping a cork or two is one thing. Popping the question? No way. No how.  

Unless Austin is ready to give up on another dream, he’s going to have to figure out how to make sure the lights go on -- and stay on -- in Georgia.
