When is a three-star review a five-star review? When it’s the recent review for Fan Mail in the September 2011 edition of Romantic Times Magazine (almost wrote Fan Maul, that’s another book, lol).
Keitha Hart at RT starts off the review by saying “This is an emotionally intense novella with believable characters and very hot love scenes. The characters are so finely created that readers will believe…” Seriously, I couldn’t ask for more. The one criticism in the review that I’ve also gotten with other pieces is that it could be longer. I really need to figure out how to crank out full length novels faster and stop it with the novellas. Granted… I *am* supposed to leave them wanting more, right? 😉 Still, the most important thing about this story is the relationship between Alicia and Tommy, and that, my friends, came across loud and clear.
Motivated to finish something new,

I just got my new cover for If You Asked Me To and it is… dare I say it? Awesome. Love, love, love it. The couple is sooo right, I couldn’t have asked for better.

Oh let the puns fly fast and loose (much like…never mind). The first book in my Triple Trouble series, “Trouble Comes in Threes,” (writing as Tymber Dalton) is available from Siren-BookStrand! http://www.bookstrand.com/product-troublecomesinthrees-14441-200.html
Elain Pardie worked hard to become a TV news reporter. When a huge, black wolf-like dog with green eyes jumps into her news van, Elain has no idea her life will drastically change.
Aindreas, Brodey, and Cailean Lyall aren’t just triplets–they’re Alpha shape-shifters running a Florida cattle ranch. They’ve never found their One, the woman destined to be their mate. Until the day of the Arcadia Highland Games, when both Brodey and Cailean lock onto Her scent. Brodey shifts and gives chase, then goes home with Elain and confirms she is their One.
When Prime Alpha Aindreas mistakenly thinks Elain’s already taken and refuses to use force to claim and mark her, Brodey and Cailean must resort to trickery to learn the truth about the wedding ring Elain wears and work to convince her that triple trouble could very easily put her into seventh heaven in their arms.
Hmmm…lucky, lucky girl! *G* The second in the series is on the way soon.
And “The Reluctant Dom” (writing as Tymber Dalton) is now available from Lyrical Press!
Love hurts…if you’re lucky.
Kaden knows he’s dying, but before he goes, he has one problem he needs to solve – he must ask his oldest friend Seth to take over as his beloved wife’s Dom and Master after his death. Seth has always seen himself as the perpetual screw-up and Kaden as the strong and steady one, so his friend’s request rocks his world.
Now Seth finds himself immersed in a role he’s far from comfortable with: inflicting pain to provide emotional comfort for the woman he’s secretly loved for years. Can he deal with his crushing grief and learn the skills he must master in time to become THE RELUCTANT DOM?
While you’re at Lyrical Press, check out my romantic paranormal thriller, “Out of the Darkness” (writing as Lesli Richardson).
Ancient evil forces a woman to fight for her life – and true love.
Man may forget horrors, but the land remembers. Built on a cursed patch of ground, George Simpson’s house of evil has ruined many lives over its hundred-year existence.
Author Steve Corey rents the place as an early anniversary surprise for his wife, hoping it might repair the deep rift his alcoholism has created in their marriage.
Before they moved to the Simpson house, Samantha Corey thought getting Steve sober was the hard part. But the house’s dark nature has turned her thoughts to Matt Barry, Steve’s best friend and agent…and her old love. Can they overcome the ancient evil threatening them all from OUT OF THE DARKNESS?
Warning: Love, sex, violence, and a Labrador retriever who’s no Lassie.
If you haven’t stopped by my websites lately, I’ve done a total site redesign on both of them.
I spend a lot of time in my local Panera Bread. In fact when I have a project I’m working on, I spend a couple hours a day there. I get breakfast and do my writing stuff. (If I could work at home, this would be an unnecessary expense. But consider–could I get an office with friendly greetings, drinks, bathrooms, wi-fi and people to watch as they wander about, for 300 bucks a month? No.)
At the moment I’m just working out the plot of my next novel. It’s ironic, because I’m working out the plot ahead of time so I won’t get stuck at the three-quarters point, which happens if I don’t know what’s going to happen in the story. So I write a synopsis ahead of time. But now I’m three-quarters of the way through the synopsis and guess what? I’m stuck in exactly the same way. But I persevere.
Bread helps. There’s something fundamental about bread. It’s sesame semolina bread at the moment that I’m nomming on, and it’s extremely tasty. Sesame is such a subtle flavor, but it really makes the whole thing wonderful. And it’s warm, and there’s real butter, and outside it is just drenching down snow. Wet, fluffy flakes that are piling up, soaking down in a straight curtain and showing where every finger of every branch of every tree is.
So I’m sitting here stuck on my project and making silly comparisons. Writing is like bread. It’s made in several stages, with love and care, and sometimes it doesn’t quite rise properly and you get an inedible rock, but for the most part it comes out right–different every time, though. And writing’s like snow. Ideas are all around, falling in clusters and clumps, but it takes skill to pick out one snowflake and develop it properly–if you don’t do that, it’s all just a big lump of white.
I think I’d better get back to work, don’t you?
Oh, and I should mention–Part Two of Fear and Desire, a free read, is currently up on my website. If you didn’t get to Part One, hang on tight. I’m revamping the site currently, and soon Part One will be up on the site itself, instead of being backlogged at Deviant. So will all my other previous free reads. Joy!
