Progress report

4/28/2010 Okay, I have decided to chart my progress on here as I get going. Since yesterday's "announcement" I have gone over the 2000 word mark. Since I had been at 451 for months, I consider this quite an achievement. I don't know if I will make my ultimate goal of 10,000 words, but Alex is yelling at me now, telling me to finish his story. And now a couple of his friends have joined him, saying they want their time to shine as well. What have I gotten myself into here? Maybe I should quit before I'm in too deep. Wait, I hear screaming in my head, telling me I can't stop now-it's Alex and the others And he just did the one thing guaranteed to keep me going-he dared me to finish. So if you ever see this post (and I doubt anyone will)I'm going to do it. Until next post, be good.

A WIP (finally)

Okay, for those of you brave enough (or bored enough) to read what I'm posting, I want to announce that I have, finally, made some progress on starting my first original work. I have been saying for some time that I had an idea floating around in my head for a story of sorts. And I keep saying I'm going to work on it. And time goes by and I sit and say what if....Well, I have finally started it!!! Mini squeee for me. Not only have I started it, but as of today, I am over the one thousand word mark. Now to "real" writers that may not seem like much, but I am thrilled with where I am so far. I don't know what the future of this one is, but I am determined to finish it now. So here's to dreams and dreamers, and now I have joined their ranks. I will pop in from time to time (between posts for books and contests, and announcements for things) and let you know how it's going. Wish me luck, and cross your fingers.

Party Time for Rocky Mountain Haven-Let's Party with Ms. Viv

From the world of the inimitable Vivian Arend!!

First the good news. Rocky Mountain Haven is releasing in less than week.  Yup- April 19th.

Now the great news. We’re having another party!! Yes, we’re going to test out the claim that I’ve now got unlimited bandwidth. What a great reason to have some fun.

Welcome to the Six Pack Ranch, where learning to live again takes some sensual twists.

Beth Danube has escaped to a small Alberta town to make a new start for herself and her three little boys. Her emotionally abusive husband may be dead and buried, but so is her heart. What she doesn’t want is another man in her life—not now, maybe not ever. Yet when her libido reawakens after ten years of unsatisfactory sex in the missionary position is any woman strong enough to turn down sex-in-boots, Daniel Coleman?

The middle child of the rowdy Coleman boys, Daniel’s the quiet one who has always subdued his desires and acted as peacemaker. His powerful attraction to the young widow takes him by storm, and he’s willing to pursue her until they both find satisfaction—in and out of the bedroom.

Only Beth isn’t sure she’s ready to cross the line. Becoming friends with blazing hot benefits means she’s still the one in control. Letting her heart trust again? She isn’t that brave—or foolish. Daniel is going to have to be mighty convincing to help her overcome the past.
