Here...There Be Dragons!!!!

Hey all,

Remember on Tuesday I said I'd have some news for y'all?  Well...I do!!! And it's REALLY wonderful news.

A part of myself had been worried about getting back into my writing...wondering if I was doing the right thing. If my time as a professional author had already passed.  I knew I'd never stop writing, but the whole publishing part of writing was so damn difficult sometimes. *sigh*

But, I decided to give it a year.  To get those older books republished and toss a few more out there to see how things went.  I hadn't any idea how it would go, but I knew I had to try. I wouldn't have forgiven myself if I'd just let it go.

Well, I'm happy to say that less than four months into the year I'd given myself, I have my answer.

Yes...I'm still an professional author, and Yes...I've still got it!

As of yesterday, I just finished signing a contract for my dragon story, Snip! Snap! Dragon! with a brand new publisher for me -- Changeling Press.  Not only that, I have an "option" for three others in the series!!!!  WooHoo!!!!!!!!

This first book will be part of this year's Changeling's Christmas Collection: Reindeer Games, and I'm so excited about this series. If you like Dragons...then this hot, sexy read will be for you. The picture here was the inspiration for this great story (thank you, Pat). When I saw it, I knew I'd found my Drayce and Eadlin. And of course in his human form Drayce is tall, dark and handsome!  *grin* 

I'm putting an excerpt up on my website soon, but here's a blurb to tempt you. 


With a fiery Snip! Snap!, a passionate modern day dragon lures his forever mate into the flames.

Weary of the tedium of three centuries of life, Drayce Drakehaven, leader of the London Dragon Clan does something inconceivable.  On a dare from one of his brethren, he crashes a Christmas party. Since dragons won’t settle for anything but the best, he chooses the social event of the season—the Christmas celebration at the home of Eadlin Knight, the richest and most sought after woman in the city.  But he doesn’t expect to look into Eadlin’s beautiful eyes and find his forever mate.

Eadlin is tired. Tired of the daily rounds of socializing. Tired of the men who are more interested in her father’s fortune than her.  She longs to find someone special. The one man who can make her heart beat faster.  Her soulmate. When she finds her ancestor’s diary and discovers her great-great-great grandmother was carried away by a mysterious stranger at a family Christmas party, she wonders if perhaps lightning can strike twice.  Could she meet her special someone, too?

When Drayce and Eadlin’s eyes meet during the holiday festivities, there is an instant snap of connection…of passion.  But Drayce’s arrogance sparks Eadlin’s temper, and she won’t fall easily into her dragon’s arms.  A heated party game may be the only way he can push past her reserves and seduce his lady fair.


Well? Intrigued yet? *smile* I can't wait to see what you think about it. Already Drayce is one of my hottest heroes! And the secondary characters in Snip! Snap! Dragon! just cry out for their own stories, so keep your eyes open for blurbs about them, too!

Check out my WEBSITE tomorrow for the excerpt and learn just why...

There Be Dragons here!!!!

Until next time!
