SWAG? And other ramblings…

I think I have post-contest let-down. LOL After a month of whirlwind blog guests and giveaways, my measly posts feel rather boring.

Ah, well…

I mentioned below that I was in Montana all last week visiting family. My SIL (brilliant!) is an econ professor at the University of Montana in Missoula. My brother is going to grad school at Montana State in Bozeman. I, of course, didn’t realize they belonged to two different schools until my brother gave me an MSU sweatshirt that was too small for him and claimed his wife would never wear it. Quick, I am, I … Read more »


I have New Book Excitement.

It’s no big secret to anyone who knows how I work that I’m not a big fan of writing the opening scene. Sometimes the opening comes to me – bam! – and I know immediately how a book will start (as was the case with STOLEN FURY). Other times I seem to rewrite an opening 100 times or more before I find the one that works (as I did with STOLEN HEAT). (July 28, 2009) This time around, working on the 2nd paranormal (working title: DECEIVED), it’s been one of those – bam! … Read more »

First Review for STOLEN HEAT

Just got this in my inbox:

Six years ago Katherine Meyer knew exactly where her life was going. She was finishing up her time in Cairo, and getting ready to write her dissertation for her doctorate in Egyptology; then Pete came into her life.

Anger, pain, and betrayal all vie for attention within Peter Kauffman’s brain, but his heart can only grasp onto one fact: Kat is alive, unbelievably and blessedly alive. Her death in a car bombing in Cairo six years ago was the most crushing time in his life, but it was also the catalyst to clean up … Read more »

Official Slacker

Yup, that’s me. Big ol’ blog slacker. Sorry to be so MIA. In my defense I’ve been busy. Not like the rest of the world isn’t busy, too, but…ya know how it goes. LOL

So what have I been up to? Let’s see…Page proofs for STOLEN HEAT are done and out the door. Woohoo! I’ve been immersed in those the last week.

Revisions on MARKED are done, and the ms is off to an awesome NYT Bestselling author who agreed to read and blurb it for me. I hope she likes it. (*Says Elisabeth while she chews her fingernails down … Read more »

Fun Stuff

Hey all!

Today I’m hanging with the Romance Bandits, talking about Facebook and other social networking sites. Stop by and comment for a chance to win an autographed copy of STOLEN FURY!

In other fun news…

I got a GREAT review from The Chicago Tribune yesterday for STOLEN FURY, and was tickled pink to see my name in the headline with Susan Elizabeth Phillips, Jayne Ann Krentz, Jennifer Cruise, Connie Brockway and Anne Stuart. Totally made my day.

I also had a fun (and fabulous!) review posted at Closetwriter, which you should definitely check out.

And finally…for … Read more »

Catch Up Post

I just realized it’s been over a week since I blogged. Where does the time go?

I’ve been swamped this week with this and that, but I have a few things to share:

1) Are you following Read more »


STOLEN SEDUCTION is done, gone, off to my editor. Technically, I came in under the wire (it’s still the 14th here. LOL). I’m zonked and going to bed. Tomorrow I’ll probably be a little sad the series is over. Tonight I’m too tired to think straight.

But I do have two questions…

WHY do computers decide to go on the fritz the week leading up to a deadline????


WHY do 3-yr olds decide to have a meltdown day when you’re on a time crunch????… Read more »

Little Things

So I finished STOLEN SEDUCTION over the weekend. I have to say, for wanting to kill my hero several times in the process, I’m very happy with the way it turned out. Sure, he has his moments, but I think that’s part of the reason I love him. Hopefully readers (and my editor!) will love him, too. Right now I’m going back through, cleaning up a few things before sending the book to my CPs. Then next week it’s off to my editor.

In case you haven’t seen it yet, STOLEN FURY is available for pre-order at the following … Read more »

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Yep, you guessed it. School’s…back…in…session. (You have to sing that to the tune of “School’s Out for Summer” to get the full effect of my excitement here.) 🙂

Funny how I’ve changed my tune from my teaching days when I dreaded the start of school. Now I adore it! I honestly didn’t realize how hard it would be to write with the kids home this summer, but I’ve learned my lesson. Next summer…Camps! (lots of them!)… Chores every day (to keep them busy and to keep them from whining about being bored!)… Naps! (mostly for me!) Slowly but surely I’ll … Read more »

A Good Day

I think as writers we all have those days where we feel like we’re running around like crazy people, not doing what we should be doing, not making an impact. Writing’s such a solitary endeavor. Aside from the few conferences we attend, our interaction with other writers happen via the internet or email, brief phone conversations or monthly RWA meetings.

Today is not one of those days. 🙂 Last night was my RWA chapter meeting, and I have to say, we had a great meeting. Great discussions, great turn-out, lots of excitement. As the president, I love it when things … Read more »
