Chicago North Spring Fling

Posted by on Apr 21, 2014 in Blog, Travel | 0 comments

My Katie Porter writing partner, Lorelie Brown, and I will be attending Chicago North RWA’s Spring Fling Conference, to be held in Chicago between April 25-26. This is exciting becuase it’s only held every two years, I get to see a ton of friends who’ve scattered to the publishing winds, and it’s within driving distance. That means far less strategizing when it comes to deciding what promo items to pack! Lorelie and I...

Ice Cream Tradition

Posted by on Apr 14, 2014 in Blog, News | 0 comments

Every year since I was eighteen, I’ve had this tradition with myself. I pick the first day of spring where it really feels like spring, and I eat a special ice cream treat to celebrate.

Oh, Word Count… We’ve Been Thwarted!

Last Monday, Lorelie Brown and I did an amazing thing. We made a vlog! It was our first experiment in talking to the world using something other than text, and it was a learning experience lot of fun. The only problem is…the goal we mention in the video was to make 20,000 words each by Friday. Neither of us made that goal. I for one wrote more words last week than I have in longer than I can remember. (My drought is a whole different...

Vlog Giveaway

Hi everyone! Lorelie Brown is my co-writing partner for our Katie Porter erotic romances. We’ve been told, perhaps erroneously, that we’re actually really cute when speaking as a pair, which makes little sense because we share 80% of the same brain so it winds up sounding like a lone person jabbering away. Well, maybe that’s the appeal. Look at the silly people! Anyway, we’ve taken this feedback to heart with the idea...

Today marks the re-release of a little book called DAYBREAK, which is available as of today in mass market paperback. I co-wrote it with Ann Aguirre under the name Ellen Connor. Daybreak is the third in the “Dark Age Dawning” trilogy, the first of which, NIGHTFALL, was nominated for the Romance Writers of America’s prestigious RITA award. Writing with Ann was my first exposure to the world of paranormal romance. I thought that...
