Maya Banks

Hmm, I hadn’t figured I’d do this as a regular feature but it seems to be popular … If you are debating over Dan Brown’s The Lost Symbol, the Book has it on special for 50% off … again, no shipping costs need be added to that. The link […]

Friday Book Roundup

Are you a Maya Banks fan? If you are, here’s a heads-up – has her latest — Sweet Seduction — on for 50% off. So instead of having to pay $15 for it, you get it for $7.49. Remember, the Book Depository doesn’t charge for shipping to most places […]

Friday Book Roundup

Oy, it’s 9 a.m. and I’m only JUST sitting down to the computer. Why is it some mornings take so much longer to get your head together? I haven’t even had my first cup of coffee yet! First off – I don’t know where my head was yesterday saying it […]

By the numbers

Ahoy, me hearties, did you know tomorrow is International Talk Like a Pirate Day? I’ve got my pirate flag up in the basement and everything. (I bought it in the US Virgin Islands, reputed home of the infamous … um, Bluebeard? Blackbeard? I will have to research again…) Anyway, this […]

Plundering for freebies

Aww, I was just over on the WriteMinded blog where Maya Banks is having her eBook Extravaganza. Draw #15 was for commenters to list the five Samhain books they’d love to win (new or old) and I found my name on several people’s lists. You wouldn’t believe how that makes […]

eBook Extravaganza is still going on

I’ve discovered that for the next semester I’ve got a new job – Mom’s Taxi. Curly, my youngest son, starts his co-op placement today at the funeral home, and he’s trying to hold down his part time job at the grocery store. This week, he’s supposed to be at the […]

Driving Stick

With my youngest heading back to school, this week’s been really busy. Curly’s in his last year of school – in fact technically he graduated high school in June although the ceremony won’t be until October. But he couldn’t decide what he wanted to do “when he grew up” until […]

Weekend Roundup

Nope, it’s not an ad. Well, yeah, I guess it is. But not for any of my own books. Consider it a Public Service Announcement. Those of you who follow me on twitter may have seen me post this over there already. Yesterday, I got an email from Elaing8 confirming […]

Daily Draw Winner #26

Maya Banks is one of those authors I’ve ‘worshipped from afar’. If you look for her at your local bookstore you’ll find her books amongst the Silhouette Desires: The Tycoon’s Pregnant Mistress, The Tycoon’s Rebel Bride; Berkley Heat: Sweet Persuasion, Sweet Surrender (whose cover is so hot a reader was […]

The Sweet Seduction of Maya Banks

I’m sitting here looking at my calendar for July. Except for one single day*, it’s completely filled with names of authors who have gone above and beyond and offered to help me celebrate my birthday. Each time I opened an email and saw “I’d love to blog” I got a […]

Gobsmacked and Grateful

I must admit I’ve never been a Harlequin reader. I’ve tried a few of them in the past (yes, okay, in the 80s) and just couldn’t see the attraction. (Harlequin Historicals excepted.) But lately, I’ve come across some contemporaries that make me go “Wow.” Molly O’Keefe‘s Mitchell’s Series, CJ Carmichael‘s […]

A lovely distraction …
