I really can't believe it! Every year it seems like the holidays are getting squished into one! When I went to the store to pick up SOAP (of all things) I guess I could have done my Christmas shopping because all of the decorations were out! ALREADY! From now on. . .during these three months, I'm going to say HAPPY HALLOWTHANKMUS!

What do you think about all of this????

The moonlight cast a shadow on him, making it hard to see his salt and pepper crew-cut. He walked up and stood next to her.
The urge to grab him hadn’t gone away. His stare made her nervous, but she didn’t turn away from him.
The night’s darkness blanketed them like her quilt. She could barely make out his eyes. The energy between them was like a magnet.
They stood in silence.
She could smell his sweet scent.
“We need to talk.” He broke the silence. His hands were plunged deep in his front jean pockets and he rocked back and forth on his heels. “Is Hayes sleeping?”
“Yes.” The word gently rolled off her lips. “What can I do for you?”
“That is a loaded question, Liz.” He turned around leaving her with a view to be desired, only to come back. Closer. “The way I see it, we have a problem.”
She enjoyed the way his eyes licked her up and down, taking in the curves of her neck and over her shoulders.
“What problem is that?” she asked, cold and calculated.
There was no way she was going to agree with such a statement. Even though she knew he was right. She wanted to hear it from him. She needed to hear that she made him as crazy as he made her.
“You’re sexy as hell. I want you. Jenna is a problem.” He walked to the gate.

Brenda Novak Diabetes Auction 2014



Tonya Kappes' Cat Capers and Feline Flirts


Brenda Novak's annual online auction has raised over $2 million for Juvenile Diabetes research, and preparations are being made for the May 2014 auction. This is an opportunity to support this important cause while promoting one's books and website.

Authors Marcia James and I (Tonya Kappes) are organizing two pet-themed prize categories for the 2014 auction. Here are the details and ways you can participate, if you're interested.

I'm hosting an auction category titled, "Tonya Kappes' Cat Capers & Feline Flirts." All of the prizes in my category will offer books (any genre) with cats in them. Authors who have books that include cats can donate a print or ebook to this category by emailing me at Tonya at tonyak11 @ yahoo.com (no spaces).

Marcia's category is "Canine Cupids and Crimefighters," and all of the prizes will offer books (any genre) with dogs in them, along with dog-themed prizes. Authors who have books that include dogs can donate a print or ebook to this category by emailing Marcia at ACMarcia @ aol.com (no spaces).

Here's what we'll need from you:

Title of donated book
Genre of donated book
Sensuality level of donated book
Author pen name
Author website URL


At the end of the May 2014 auction, I will be given the winners' names, along with their snail-mail and email addresses. Then we'll contact the participating authors, so they can send their print books or ebooks directly to the winners.

The 2014 auction prizes will be listed on the auction website starting in January, since many of the thousands of auction visitors enjoy checking out the prizes before the auction begins. So, we'll need to hear from donating authors by December 15th.

HAPPY RELEASE DAY~A GHOSTLY UNDERTAKING

YAY!! I'm so excited to introduce you to the world of Emma Lee Raines in the Beyond the Grave Series starting with A GHOSTLY UNDERTAKING!! A GHOSTLY UNDERTAKING is full of quirky characters, romance, mystery, and HUMOROUS GHOSTS! I hope you pick up your copy today!!


Another day. 

Another funeral. 

Another ghost. 

Another average day in the life of young funeral home director, Emma Lee Raines. 

After a perilous run-in with a plastic Santa Claus, Emma Lee, co-owner of Eternal Slumber Funeral Home in Sleepy Hollow, Kentucky, sees the ghost of town gossip Ruthie Sue Payne, who is proving to be a real pain, more so in death than while living. Recently deceased, Ruthie reveals to Emma Lee that her demise wasn't caused by accidentally falling down the steps at the Sleepy Hollow Inn as everyone believes—she was pushed...murdered. 

In order for the ghost to cross over—and for Emma Lee to be rid of Ruthie for good—she must find a desperate killer...or risk being haunted forever.
