Sync Into Character

. Friday, February 25, 2011

An important part of writing is getting into character. I don't have the patience to spend 10, 15 minutes doing this so I take a minute to meditate with a focus point like the one I found on YouTube. Clearing out my thoughts, worries, distractions and becoming my character can happen in one good minute. Although sometimes I need another minute or two to make it stick and feel comfortable beginning writing for the day.

Love, light, and laughter!

Epic Win App

I'm loving Epic Win, an app that combines gaming with a to do list. How epic is that?

Simple and fun, you choose a character and then enter your To Do list under Quests, assigning priority with loot earned when complete. You can set reminders and reacurring quests. It's fun, it's easy, it makes completing chores a game. Crazy cool!

Here are some screen shots so you can get a feel for the how it works:

Book Trailer for Paradise Moon

Check out my new book trailer for my sci fi romance Paradise Moon coming out on the Feb 24th! My favorite slide is the red eye I created using my GIMP program. It turned out beautiful and reflects the main character, Kiana, who has beautiful red eyes!

New Authors Club

. Friday, February 11, 2011

Have you heard of the New Authors Club? I hadn't either before a week ago.

It's an online community for authors of all genres that has the look and feel of FaceBook. Very user friendly. It gives you the ability to create groups (according to genre and/or purpose) that can be setup as All Access or Private (I created one for romance writers called Write Romance), places for your book trailers, book covers, blogging capability. Really I think it has it all.

Check it out. I think you'll be as impressed as I am.

Love, light, and laughter!

Vigilant...Guess What I Know?!

. Wednesday, February 9, 2011

A little birdie told me that Luminous Nights by Michele Hart has a sequel called Vigilant that will finally drop in June! All I can say is it's about time. We've waited loooooong enough for another good sci fi romance. Seriously, I can only re-read the same book so many times without losing my mind. Time for a new one, people.

Love, light, and laughter!

Gunning for Trouble

. Tuesday, February 8, 2011

What's today? I'll tell you grrls...Today is release day for my friend the magnificent, charming, incredible writer HelenKay Dimon's intriguing book, Gunning for Trouble!


When he was recruited by the Recovery Project, Caleb Mattern found a new lease on life. Tracking missing persons. Protecting witnesses. But even after stretching his muscles and becoming one of the company's elite agents, he couldn't leave his past behind. Avery Walters wouldn't let him.

His former boss had also been his onetime lover, and now she's burst back into his life with dangerous consequences. But settling old scores won't be on the agenda—not yet! With the nation's security depending on them to act appropriately, Caleb must pull off the most impossible assignment of his career. Now that Avery's put her life in his hands, what will Caleb do with it?

Award-winning author HelenKay Dimon spent twelve years in the most unromantic career ever - divorce lawyer. After dedicating all of that effort to helping people terminate relationships, she is thrilled to deal in happy endings and write romance novels for a living. Her books have been featured in Cosmopolitan Magazine and E! Online. HelenKay loves hearing from readers, so stop by her website at and say hello.

Love, light, and laughter!

Attention authors and readers!

. Friday, February 4, 2011

I've had several friends hurt by the theft of their books so when I saw this, I decided to speak up.

iOffer is allowing the resale of stolen PDF copies of books. If you're an author, you should search your name / publisher on this site to see if your books are being stolen / pirated. If the answer is yes, you can report the thieves to your publisher as well as the IC3 (FBI) at

If you're a reader, please don't buy stolen books. Your favorite author just might be the one hurt by the theft.

Love, light, and laughter!
