Friday Five for February 5, 2016


1. Today is the last day of The Paramours Tour. I'll be over at Megan Morgan's blog and Long and Short Reviews today. It's been a really fun week, but I'm ready for a break this weekend. You still can enter the giveaway for a chance to win a $20 gift card.

2. The edits are finished on Big Yearning, the first book of The Sasquatch Susies series. I'll have a release date very soon. I've also seen the covers. Oh my! When they're finalized, I'll unveil them... Well, there's no veils involved. In fact, there's very little clothing at all!

3. It's funny that while I write erotica, I do get all shy when seeing the covers. The Paramours' covers are conservative in the erotica world (even though I really love them), but the Susies books have a ton more beefcake! Everything about these novellas is BIG.

4. I've been working on the third book for my Totem series. It's going a lot slower than I thought it would. The protagonist and her hero aren't chatty types. And the protagonist swears a lot. I have threatened them that if they don't start talking, I'm going to throw the baddies at them much sooner than I planned. They think I'm bluffing. Ha!

5. I've no plans this weekend except to take full advantage of the unseasonably warm weather. Time to get out and enjoy the sunshine before crawling back into my writer's cave when the cold comes back. Have a wonderful weekend!

  3. I could see that with erotica. When I see my book covers, it's the first time I really realize other people are going to read it...and it's like my characters are brought to life. so with erotica, I could see realizing my words now have life.

  6. I have to admit I laughed at the "everything is big" comment about the erotica covers. My mind went to the gutter for a minute I guess. :D
    Glad you've had a fun tour for Paramours. You definitely deserve a break and a great weekend!

  9. Hope the tour's been fun! Hmmm, everything about Sasquatch Susies is BIG. What could you possibly mean? LOL. Can't wait to see the covers. I love a protag who swears a lot. No more warm weather here in Florida :( Back in the 30s each night for the next week, which to me is cold!

  11. Other than finishing my notes for you (on chapt 8), I have no plans this weekend. I have it off because I was going to go to my nephew's birthday party, but the date changed so I'm FREE for the weekend. ^_^

  13. Congrats on wrapping up your edits! How exciting that you've seen covers for your Sasquatch Susies series already. Looking forward to the cover reveal for that! That's a shame how the characters from the third Totem book are being so stubborn, though. Good luck figuring out a threat that'll make 'em chatty, LOL!

  15. My son was in junior high when Healing Summer came out and the first cover showed a bit of nipple when you blew it up. Of course he was showing it to friends at school when this was first noticed. Long story short, the teacher took his computer privileges away for looking up porn in class. He had to argue that it was his mother's porn to get out of trouble.

    So, I understand blushing at the cover ;)

  16. My books aren't even close to erotica but my publisher sometimes gives them a hotter cover than they should have. I worry it will mislead my readers. I enjoyed the warmer weather this weekend too. Got some outdoor exercise in before the snow returns tomorrow.

  17. I'm okay without any beefcake whatsoever, big or small. I hope your weekend was a good one, though. Ours was full of football and beer and probably an impending hangover that will make a retreat to the writing cave even more needed.

  18. Can't wait to see the covers! Hope you enjoyed the warm weather. We've got 60s coming up this week. I'm hoping to get out for a hike one of those days.
