I'm heading out to Vegas this weekend to do a little research for my latest novel. I'm looking forward to the trip, but it's going to be whirlwind of fly in, check out the areas I need to see, and fly back home. Not a lot of time for fun and excitement. Of course, it's hard not to at least get caught up a little in the bells, whistles and lights of Vegas even if you're just walking to dinner.
I'm already dreading the time difference (3 hours). That'll knock me on my butt for a few days when I get back home and the adrenaline wears off. Luckily, I still have a few lazy weeks of summer left to get caught up again. It'll all be worth it, I'm sure, and I'll try to take lots of pictures I can share with you all.
There are specific areas I need to check out while, I'm in Vegas, but I hate to fly all the way across the country and miss something great. I know lots of you have been there. What are your favorite things about Sin City? What should I check out if I have time?

Why is it so important? If you aren't advertising your product isn't getting noticed. If your product isn't getting noticed, you aren't selling, so you aren't making any money.
Only problem with promoting is the time it takes away from writing. If you're one of the lucky few who can write full time because a) you have a spouse who works and makes enough money to support the family or b) you make enough money writing to support your family or just yourself, then promotions shouldn't be too big a problem.
I fall into the category of writer who has a dayjob that tries to usurp personal time, so any free time is dedicated to writing. That's when the specter of promotions rears its head and I have to start budgeting in blocks of time to send out emails and excerpts to groups.
And I suck at it--promotions that is.
I prefer writing. Using my time to craft stories and characters that leave a lasting impression (a positive one, I hope) on the readers. I was remiss in keeping up my advertising schedule for the month of July, and it was reflected in my royalties--ouch!
So, I'm off to get some excerpts out to the groups and loops. I just wanted to stop by and complain a bit, LOL, hope you all have a great weekend!! Think of me slogging away over the keyboard, writing up excerpts and ads to put my books out there for the consumers to read.

Even worse, they automatically assume that as an erotic romance author, I must experience everything I write about. Does a suspense author have to become a serial killer in order to write about a serial killer? Do any of their readers or critics ever make such assumptions? I doubt it. Yet, I've been asked how I can write about "that stuff?" Do I have to practice? If my husband is in the area, he insists that we practice everything in the books. He's become the envy of all of his friends. The reality of it is much less exciting.
Most writers are imaginative people who create their own worlds in their minds. Their characters get to do things they'd never even consider in their day-to-day lives. We love to be people we'd never dream of being, even though each character contains a little of ourselves. In the majority of cases, we aren't wild women (or men), and our lives aren't nearly as exciting as others believe.
Then there's the stigma attached to reading romance, the ol' bodice ripper mentality. What's so bad about a book that leaves the reader feeling good about themselves and full of hope in a world that offers little of that? Isn't that a good thing? A lot of readers must agree with me, as romance novels appear to be the only book genre that is holding its own in this economy. In fact, I believe sales are increasing.
So what is the deal? Why is romance treated with such disrespect by those that don't read it? I've read tons of theories. The most popular one has to do with it being primarily women's fiction. If men read it, it wouldn't have the stigma. There's some validity to this. I also think that people still don't want to admit that they enjoy the sex scenes. They feel that it's like admitting you read porn. True romance is not porn. In fact, if the sex scenes were removed, you should still have an engaging story that can stand alone on its own merits.
So the next time someone belittles you for reading or writing romance, have a quick comeback ready. I'd love to hear your ideas for a great comeback.

If we break down word count to get a page count, the average trade paperback romance has 250 -300 words per page, so let’s take the lesser of the two values to determine page count.
Therefore, if you write 2,000 words, you’ve written eight pages. Is this truly important to you? Or can you deal with only having written four (or about 1,000 words) for the day/writing time.
Now without knowing Mrs. Hamilton’s schedule and anything about her life (I’m sure this information is on her website or in various interviews, but she’s a busy woman. If you’ve read either of her series, you know she writes very in depth first person action oriented dark romances. For those of you who are unfamiliar, Hamilton’s books are very heavy in plot, events that happen and contain a great deal of police work involved, so the research she puts into her novels to make them believable is where a large portion of her time is spent.
I read an article from Melinda Rucker Hayes that says many authors have methods in place such as calendar scheduling, striving to write ten pages a night, etc to help them accomplish their writing goals.
For example, Katie MacAllistar and Rebecca York set word count goals for the day. I’m sure if they don’t meet them, it’s not the end of the world.
My question is, why are we driven so hard as authors to try to nail 10k in a day and then keep up that pace? I recently interviewed Brenna Lyons for Radio Dentata and she told me the worst month she had was when she had to edit 160k novel on top of writing 65k of NEW MATERIAL.
It made me realize why I’ve been slacking since the Cybernet Expo. The previous week I’d recorded a show or two, had conducted interviews, spent time with my publisher at Renaissance E-books talking about Cybernet Expo and writing roughly 25k for two different stories in JUST seven days. I’m only NOW back to putting in a full day that doesn’t exactly include my goal of 2,500 words a day because of what’s happened since then.
I think last week I managed about 5k total. I’ve edited 40k on two different stories and have managed to get through another 50k of words worth of galley copy of my first book to go to print (that’ll be another article) in addition to commitments like this blog and the radio show.
Just looking at the above list, it looks like I’ve accomplished something doesn’t it. It looks like it VALIDATES my career as a romance writer.
Or does my claim of that as a job/career validate me?
You make the call. I’d love your feedback.

As writers, many of us struggle to maintain the creativity innately required in our work. For most of us, some days are good and some are bad in regards to tempting our muse to cooperate and successfully negotiate the ins and outs of writing our books.
Whether we use rituals to spark the muse, such as sitting down with a cup of coffee and a laptop at our desk, exercise, writing things down with a pen and paper, or running around naked with feather boas on, we all have some way to get our mojo on.
If you write, what's yours? If you don't, what gets your creative juices flowing, whatever you may apply them to?
Yesterday, I rose early (5 A.M... what's up with that?), sat down with a pen and paper and seriously got into my characters heads. Sixteen hours of getting into their heads, and getting them on paper. It was a good day! All together, my muse and I wrestled about 20,000 words into my computer.
Some days, those wonderful, stubborn muses cooperate and you go to bed satisfied that you've done good work that day.

All of us author's look for new and creative ways to market our names and our books....We all work hard at making promo items like bookmarks, pens, postcards and other things that we can give out to readers or potential readers.
We want to stand out amongst the masses. Stick out and get noticed...
With technology and everything that is available out there we are always hunting. We want the world to know we are here and we have a book that you would want people to read.
Author's know that it is not cheap to market yourself. Everything costs and in these hard times we watch how and where we spend our hard earned cash.
Getting people's attention is not easy when the market is filled with tons of author's who try to the the exact thing that you are doing. This is why we all try to break our self apart from the crowd. We try to shout louder to the world. Here I am...Can I have your attention please....
Sometimes it works and sometimes we need to go back to the drawing board and start all over....
I want to ask you, what kind of marketing things do you like from authors?
Do magazine ads influence you?
Do you prefer goodie bags with promotional items?

"Paige Tyler is one of the hottest spanking romance writers around, and Librarian by Day is a prime example of why. The heat between Nik and Jennifer is so hot you might need oven mitts to read this romance. Jennifer is shy, so very shy, she has never told a lover her most secret parts of herself. When she does, how will Nik react? Nik is such a sweet alpha male. Every girl should have a Nik in her life. Jennifer is so lucky to have him! Trust me, he knows how to handle his girl. One of the great things about a Paige Tyler romance is the emotional connection that is between the characters. I love how the characters grow and learn from each other, becoming more than they were before. The real treat in this romance is the connection Ms. Tyler creates with her characters. It always is a joy to watch unfold. When you want a spanking romance to remember you want Librarian by Day on your keeper shelf!"

Silver Bullets? Ben Wa balls? A crystal dildo? Rabbits? In our newest release at Extasy, Aria spends an entire chapter exploring toys and playing with Ryan and Jamie. Those scenes are so delicious I can’t decide which character I’d rather imagine myself to be! Frost at TwoLips Reviews gave Colors of the Night a Five Kisses review and said, among other things, “I highly recommend this book, although the reader will no doubt want either a partner or a bucket of toys close at hand.”
The dazzling and timeless love goddess Aria pays a visit to struggling thirty-something Jamie and Ryan Hazleton, who are on the brink of divorce. When the hot sex that results from her first lesson cools to icy glares, Aria decides to move in with them and provide more experiential learning. Can Ryan overcome his jealousy of Jamie’s uninhibited response to the delectable goddess? What if he succumbs to his own desires? Only time will tell whether this love triangle with an immortal will ignite or extinguish the dying embers of Jamie and Ryan’s love.
Some of our fellow Midnight Seductions authors write some great sex toy scenes as well, and our own Elizabeth Black reviews toys on her blog. Here are some great links for you:

Nine years ago just about this time of year I sat in a Washington D.C. hotel ballroom listening to our luncheon speaker with awe and envy. It was my first RWA Nationals, and multi-published romance author Susan Wiggs was our keynote speaker. I hung on her every word. Her feelings were my feelings and she was giving voice to my hopes and dreams.
RWA Nationals opens today, once again in Washington D.C. Though I can’t be there in person this year, my publishers will be, and that’s a statement that was only a far-off dream that day in the summer of 2000.
I had arrived with a single manuscript completed. I polished and pitched and submitted and survived rejections and listened to feedback (and yes, I incorporated some of it) and finally, in the fall of 2005, I was offered my first contract, at Awe-Struck for Willow Smoke. Three books later, I too am a multi-published author, writing to great reviews and available at Amazon.com, All Romance E-books, and FictionWise as well as publishers’ websites.
I wish everyone well at this year’s Con, and I hope there’s a wanna-be like me sitting in the audience at the keynote luncheon who will be inspired to keep on writing and polishing and never give up.
See you next month!

I’m not sure what happened to me in the month of June. I started writing and couldn’t stop. There are times when it’s hard to plot two chapters before my mind goes blank. But I found this month just the opposite.
I had three stories in the back of my head that couldn’t wait to get out. After typing them, I submitted the three to my publisher and they were accepted.
Coming soon from Romance Divine - My Cowboys an MFM, Marooned an MM and Guess Who’s Watching You? an MFM.
I also signed another contract for The Christmas Gift, a Christmas anthology print book. Whatever the sales, the authors contributing split the royalties.
I’m wondering when another story will nudge me into firing up the computer again. I hope it’s soon.
I have a couple of questions for other authors. Do any of you find a number of plots filling your head at the same time? If so, do you finish all of the stories and submit them, or put some of them away until later?

We all have them. My most recent addictions include Sorority Life on Facebook and purging items from my closets, drawers, and home. Books are a great addiction of mine. I have a collection of children's books and a collection of erotica books. The problem with collective addictions is the space they take up.
I spend a lot of time researching online and most of the time I use Swag Bucks This can definitely become addicting but you do earn free stuff so it's worth it!
The problem with game addictions is the time they take up. Either is fine in moderation but that's the problem with addictions you can't see when enough is enough...
Ahhh- another addiction- volunteering for way too many chores!
So I ask- what is your most recent addiction? And if books are among your addictions- how many do you have?

I've just started writing for Sex Is Magazine, which came right on the heels of Nuts4chic closing. And the articles are more fun to write and longer. I'm loving it!
This week's article is about food and sex, entitled "You Are What You Eat: Foods That Improve Your Sex Life".
Here's an excerpt:
Your diet affects the taste of your sex organs and secretions. Certain foods make semen taste bitter as well as making pussy secretions taste and smell strong. A woman's taste and scent changes from day to day. There are many factors affecting her taste and smell, including where she is in her monthly cycle, whether or not she is menstruating, and what she has recently eaten. According to sex writer Violet Blue, friendly bacteria lactobacilli reside in a woman's vagina, so when her vagina is healthy she will have a sweet and slightly pungent taste and smell, much like plain yogurt. A woman's taste ranges from tangy to salty, with a hint of the metallic thrown in when she's close to having her period. The metallic taste comes from the iron in her blood.
Here's what to do to make your sweetie taste sweet instead of bitter:
1. Cut down on red meat. Red meat is the number one culprit in creating a strong taste. Related to red meat is dairy. Cut down on milk, cream, and ice cream. I won't say eliminate red meat and dairy altogether because so many people – including my husband and I – enjoy a good steak dinner followed by an ice cream dessert. Just cut down your intake, and increase your intake of poultry to make up for the loss. If you can cut meat out of your diet altogether, you will notice a dramatic effect on your sweetie's taste whether that person is a man or a woman. Vegan or vegetarian men have semen that tastes sweeter than men who regularly eat your basic red meat steak and potatoes with lots of garlic and onion meals.

I'm sitting through "The Unborn" for the second time, and I'm just as disappointed in it now as I was the first time. Seeing it again hasn't changed a thing for me. Anyone who knows me and reads my works knows I'm a huge fan of horror movies. "The Unborn" is about a young woman haunted by a dybbuk, which is a nasty creature from Jewish folklore. I had hoped that since this was an unusual creature that the movie would be scary and fun, but instead it was predictable, boring, and full of F/X cheap shots.
I wanted to add "The Haunting In Connecticut" to my Blockbuster queue, but it got a lousy rating at Rotten Tomatoes. So did "The Unborn", for that matter. Rotten Tomatoes also trashed "The Uninvited" – another movie I had hopes for. So now I'm stuck waiting for "Brüno" to come out on DVD.
I love a good ghost story, and I do have a couple of neat little scares in my new novel "The Haunting Of The Sandpiper Inn". If you've ever watched Japanese horror movies you'll immediately notice the likeness when you finish the book. While Japanese horror movies like "The Ring" include some pretty farking scary ghosts, my ghosts tend to be more mischievous than outright frightening. Although that doesn't stop me from scaring your pants off with a good ghost scene. If you read my award winning short story "Sweet Spot", you know I can scare you stark naked.
The last good movie I rented was "Zombie Strippers" so at least you know how low I'll go when it comes to picking movies. I'm also waiting for "Frost/Nixon" to come out. I'll watch Frank Langella in anything and he is luscious. Remember him in "Dracula"? Boo ya!
So what movies are you waiting for? If you're a horror movie fan, have you seen any good and new horror movies lately? If you have, let me know. I'm on the lookout.

To some the idea of sex in public is anathema. To others it’s an intriguing fantasy or even practice. I’ll admit I sometimes have this fantasy. Have I ever acted this fantasy out? Somewhat, in a car parked in the desert, covered up in the back of a pick up truck in a drive-in movie theater, (remember them?) and finally, on a balcony in the middle of the night.
What do people find so fascinating about having sex in public? It has to be the the chance of being discovered—of being watched. Yes, I believe It’s a form of exhibitionism.
As I started writing this article, I started thinking about all the instances of sex in public I have used in my books. By the Book is rift with them—in a theater, the ocean, the bathroom of a bar (where two barflies catch and watch them), in a night club (where they are caught on closed circuit TV and everyone claps for them as they leave red-faced). In addition, examples of sex in public places heat up the pages of Love and Seduction in
I write about it all the time because the fact is, people do it all the time. At work, in restrooms, in parks, in lomos, cabs and on subways (remember Risky Business). Some do it fully dressed, while others take some or all of their clothes off. Some do it in a tent while camping, where they are safe from sight, but everyone can hear them, or the go off in the wilds. Some do it on a beach, or in the water. Then there’s the ultimate sex in public—orgies, where everyone feeds off the sex of others. And in each and every case the participants find it exciting. Why? I don’t know. You tell me. Perhaps it’s their way of saying to the world, “Hey look at me, I’m ALIVE!
Have you ever done it? If not, do you think about it, maybe even on a stage with an audience? (I have) Would you do it? Would it be safe or reckless?

our Fourth of July brought us a day with relatively low humidity. So, it didn't seem
August is generally the hottest month in the south. Yep, we've got a ways to go and the heat has just begun. I have always hated summer. I love fall and spring. I can even deal with winter, but summer keeps me inside cause I hate the heat. Which means I've never tanned very well.
Oh I've done the whole tanning bed thing and if you've got to have a tan, it's definitely the way to go. I can't stand lying under the sun and sweating. Twenty minutes a day in a tanning bed with SOME sweating will give you much better results. This year I didn't bother to tan, which I am now regretting, of course. Knew I'd live to be pissed off about it.
Anyway, looks like I am heading down to Myrtle Beach soon for a few days of R and R. Yeah, right. I don't know about everyone else, but if I take a week off, it means the first two days are spent trying to get used to just relaxing, then the last two days are spent feeling anxious about going home. I always figure I get about three days rest out of seven.
One of these days I'm going to take a month long vacation.
In the meantime, has anyone noticed that in the summer books seem to get hotter? I've noticed my writing is getting hotter. Not having a bit of trouble writing all the sex in this book I'm submitting very soon. Sex, sex, sex. Now that's my kind of
Smooches to everyone. I hope you're having a great summer!

You know you do it. I do it. Most of us either do it, want to do it, or have done it in the past. But where is your favorite place to do it?
I'm talking about reading, that is (get your mind out of the gutter)!
My favorite place to read books is in bed, snuggled up under the covers. To make it perfect, give me a full bag of sunflower seeds, a quiet house and my warm guy keeping the bed all toasty.
Lately, I've been doing a lot of reading in the car while waiting for people or while sitting in waiting rooms. When I read on the computer, then I'm obviously sitting at the computer. I do a lot of writing in odd places, too. So I try to carry a notebook and pen with me wherever I go. You never know when inspiration is going to hit!
So what about you? Where's your favorite place to snuggle up to a good book?

As an adult, my summer vacations have gotten a bit more complicated. My new fantasy destinations are places like New York, Paris, London, Tokyo, or pretty much anywhere with a beach. I guess it takes more to entertain me now than it did when I was little. :)
I've been to Hawaii, Florida, South Carolina, Virginia, and on a cruise. In a few days the hubby and I are headed to Las Vegas with some friends. We've been once before, but I still can't wait to take in the lights and see some shows.
What's your fantasy destination? If you could do anything, would you spend your summer camping in the mountains? Exploring exotic locales? Lounging on a beach? Dancing in a nightclub? Or would you rather just relax at home?
(If you're in the mood for fantasy locations, check out my Fantasies series. Each book is set at one of the luxurious Fantasies resorts--and happy endings are guaranteed!)

We all have our favorite summer traditions: cookouts, 4th of July parades, state fairs, baseball games or summer camp. This 4th of July I got to thinking about summer traditions in other countries.
I lived in Japan for five years, and discovered a whole new set of summer traditions that I grew to enjoy.
Once the weather starts warming up you'll find the new seasonal beers available. Not only do all the major beer companies have a slightly different summer recipe, but they also have special cans, with beautiful, summery images, and fanciful names that have nothing to do with beer like "Summer Tales." To enjoy your summer beer even more, dozens of rooftop beer gardens spring up just for a couple of months and are generally packed after work. One of the attractions of these is an all-you-can-eat-and-drink deal, where you pay for 1 or 2 hours of almost unlimited food and beer. No surprise that this is extremely popular in a country where going out tends to be very expensive.
Fireworks are another summer specialty. Several cities have long-standing firework shows and festivals. The Sumida-gawa fireworks exhibit in Tokyo is one of the oldest and most popular, dating back to 1732! Spectators grab their spots along the river early in the day and picnic (including summer beers, of course!) until dark and the actual fireworks show. I can honestly say that I have never seen fireworks like these. The show is long and the shapes and colors are incredibly creative. Each display is greeted with a chorus of 'ooh,' 'ahh' and 'sugoi' (Japanese for 'cool' or 'awesome.')
Since summers in Japan can be extremely hot and humid, Japanese try to find ways of cooling off. During this season you'll find people wearing thin cotton kimonos called yukata. When you go to stay in a Japanese inn, they provide a yukata for each guest and people wear them as they wander around the summer resorts, though in the cities you would rarely see someone wearing them outside except for festivals.
And last is one of my very favorite summer traditions: wind chimes. People will hang these up only during the summer when the breezes are fairly gentle. One of my friends told me that something about the sound of wind chimes makes people feel cooler. Since then, every time I hear wind chimes, I think of the summers I spent in Japan. It's an unmistakable sound of summer.

Ok so it's the 3rd, but because I know a lot of us won't be around this weekend with BBQs, & family events, I wanted to wish everyone a fun and safe Holiday weekend!
Remember to use sunblock, even if it's over cast and cloudy when you are out in the sun. Ladies it's important to moisturize, you know the little wrinkles LOL. Here's an article from Allure Magazine with Nine Best Beach Beauty Solutions. It has great tips even for when you are out in the sun. Hope you enjoy it!

But I've often wondered when they're overrated versus underrated, and if they're done at the expense of plot. What if you want a complicated relationship that goes through layers and layers of transition, and have doors open for sequels as a result? What if you've ignored essential character development for the sake of getting together a happily ever after?
Or still yet, what if you've made TOO many obstacles for the main characters, and they really shouldn't wind up together for whatever reasons of incompatibility that they have?
Readers and writers, sound off! What do YOU think of HEAs? Are they essential, or are you good with "happy for now" plots?

Today we’re celebrating hot new releases at each of our publishers:
Colors of the Night ~ this book has a special place in our hearts because it’s the very first book my husband and I sold writing erotic romance together under the pen name Adriana Kraft. The timeless love goddess Aria visits a married couple on the brink of divorce and coaches them through a series of erotic adventures that not only spice up their sex life but ultimately create a deeply spiritual erotic bond between them. Aria’s a hot one – we’d welcome her into our lives, any day! Extasy Books Click HERE for an excerpt
Meghan’s Playhouse Book Two: A Woman for Zachary ~ also special, because it features an older hero/heroine pair who offer hope for the rest of us about what’s possible all our lives long. Meghan’s left small town Wisconsin to pursue her dreams on Broadway. Along the way, of course, she can’t turn down an opportunity to bring yet another couple together in her uniquely up close and personal style.
