New Release, New Phone, Blog Tour and Other Stuff

Hi everyone! I've been really busy muse finally allowed me a huge burst of creativity, which I've been balancing with editing. You'll probably be able to tell when the well runs dry, as I'll be more active online. So, no news is good news!

A Ring and A Promise releases as a single tomorrow for those of you who either don't buy anthos or just haven't got 'round to it. It's already available on presale if you can't wait another nine hours. :) I love this story, and my military guys are very dear to my heart. Love my cover too! :) Since I don't want to be repetitive, see past posts for excerpts and here's the blurb:

Careers in military service are never easy on relationships—even less so when both lovers are in different branches...and both are men.

Naval Academy graduation now under their belts, Cary Barrientos knows the reality of the upcoming separation from his roommate of the past four years. Owen is more to him than just his best friend—he is the one person Cary can see spending his life with.

Owen Marsh knew that when he became Cary’s lover, the day would come when he would have to walk away. Now that day has come, and he’s having a hard time convincing himself that it’s just sex between them. Even with DADT repealed, there is no way a Marine and a Navy flier can be together. He’s just being realistic not expecting more.

When Cary switches their Academy rings, hoping Owen won’t notice, he makes a vow—he will do whatever he has to do, including believing enough for the both of them, to make their unlikely relationship stand the test of time. But when his Marine is called up for duty overseas, can a piece of jewellery and a promise be enough to get them through?


This week I'm part of a blog tour with four other authors, and we'll be posting smexy excerpts every day on our blogs.  On Monday, I'll be hosting Sue Holston, and so forth until I'm on Simone Anderson's blog on Friday. Just comment on each blog stop for an entry to win a $25 Amazon gift card. So easy! I'll also be giving away a copy of A Ring and A Promise on Simone's blog Friday. Details, links and the first stop here on my blog tomorrow!


The lovely and gracious Chris over at Stumbling Over Chaos is having a giveaway of A Ring and A Promise, so be sure to pop over and comment by tomorrow, Monday, at 7pm CST. :)


I got my first smartphone last week! Before that, the last phone I had was a flip phone from 2005, so yeah...big change in my life! :) It's my new toy. Today I discovered the Dropbox app, and having instant access to all my library and files and works in progress...wowza.

Still exploring. Anyone have any fave apps they want to suggest for me to check out??


  1. Do you have an android phone or an iPhone? I have an android tablet that I love - and dropbox is a big part of that! I love not having to connect cables or move cards to load ebooks.

    Thanks for the mention!

  2. D'oh, guess I could've mentioned that. :) I have a droid, Samsung Galaxy Nexus to be exact, and I really like it so far...though I have to admit probably ANY smartphone would seem cool to me. :D

    And YW!

  3. Ok, apps I like - gmail app, Google Reader app, mantano reader ebook reader, tumblelog, reversi, random factor mahjong, Dr web light, app backup and restore... And I still don't have a smartphone. :)
