My Fan-Girl Moments At GRL

Okay everyone, do NOT look at how white my legs are in those shorts - Damn I sure have the Tasmanian tan going, and I haven't even lived in Tassie for at least 18 years. I so should have worn jeans or at least a long skirt. In next years pictures I will look way better - even if I have to get a spray on tan before I go so I don't look like I could stand buck naked in a blinding snowstorm and blend in.

Ethan Day - OMG he is such a beautiful man.

Carol Lynne - I could not believe how nice she was - Em was fan-girling as well.

And The Winner IS!!!

Thank you for all taking the time to stop by and participating in this wonderful event. I hope you all had as much fun as I did.

Howloween Blog Hop

Well today is the beginning of the Howloween Blog Hop. and I am supposed to write something Halloween inspired. The sad thing is in my part of Australia we don't really celebrate Halloween. So I am just gonna ramble for a bit.

where you will find other great participants to go trick or treating with.
270+ Authors

What does Halloween mean for me, I get to indulge in my love of bats. Okay so maybe I am a little off my rocker because I joined a blog hop for something I never participate in... Though I was just in America. Albuquerque, New Mexico to be exact for GRL and while there I went to a store with Brandi and Erika and I was just amazed by all the Halloween decorations everywhere... the spiders I could live without but I did really enjoy the bats.

Why is it when this time of year rolls around I want to write a shit-load of paranormal stories... I want to immerse myself in the spirit of the day/night etc. This is the time of year that the paranormal and the supernatural all come out to play and have a good time among the land of the living human beings. I always wonder just how thin the veil between the undead and the living truly is at this time of year... mind you I am a 'big ol' fraidy cat' about the scary side of life.

My Give-away
I suppose I should talk about my prize for this blog hop... The truth is I can't remember what I said I would give away (Bad NJ). So instead I will now say I will give away a free ebook from my backlist and a $15 gift certificate to Bookstrand or Amazon... So to be in the chance to win this prize please leave a comment with your contact information... and for a chance to be in the draw twice please feel free to join my blog as a follower or remind me that you are already a follower. I will then choose my winner at the end of the hop.

Good luck to all who participate.

New Cover...

While away this year at GRL I look on my computer between events and sleeping, and find this waiting for me... This picture is simply stunning and Reese Dante has outdone herself yet again. I couldn't think of a better picture for my Werewolf story: A Moon-Runner Christmas.

GRL 2012: Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Well, I should start off by saying that GRL (GayRomLit) is now over and I had an absolute ball. I have met so many wonderful people from all over the world. People who I have know for a year or more on the net and now I can finally put a face to the names... 

Emily was so excited when we got to meet Carol Lynne, who is as nice in person as she is on the net. Me, I had a total fan-girl moment when I met Ethan Day: who by the way is totally adorable. I also got to meet Reese Dante, Yes, I mean THE Reese Dante

I also met the lovely, Laura Baumbach and Kris Jacen, who I was so stoked to meet and Lex Valentine who is just as great as I thought she would be... There are just too many people to tell you, but I do have a few I wanna say it was great meeting: Jambi (Jambrea Jo Jones), Z Allora, K-Lee Klein, Erika Orrick, Brandi Roberts, AJ Kelton, AKM Miles, Andrew Grey & Dominic, ZA Maxfield, Gabrielle Evans, Joyee Flynn, Poppy Dennison, Our Helen, The two Crazy Cajuns (Suzette & Aunt Janet) and the Iclandic Princess and her cousin (Erica Pike & Thora).

Lastly I can't forget the Members of P.I.T.O.L (which should stand for Put It On The List - but Embry Carlysle stuffed it up - LOL). The members are as follows.

Kelly McGrath
Embry Carlysle
William Cooper 
Simone Anderson
Cherie Noel
N.J. Nielsen
Emily Saddington

Who weren't afraid to scare the inhabitants of Santa Fe with me - that was the best fun I have ever had. Can't wait to catch up with them all again in the future - somewhere along the line William Cooper became my son... But that is a whole other story...LOL.

Last Day!!!

Just a short and sweet. Well the time has come and I am doing my last post before I head off to America. I still haven't finished packing for my flight that leaves in less than twenty -for hours. Emily is asking me, or should I say keeps telling me that I need to pull my finger out and get it done. I will post the wedding photo's when I get home from GRL as my niece has the photos and she won't get home until after Em and I have left.

Finally back!!! & A Awesome Review

I lost my net for nearly nine days - so that is the reason I haven't been around lately. And I am about to head off to GRL in two days (I will try and post while we are away and fill you in on what's happening) - I am  also going to a wedding tomorrow, but I will post a picture of me and Em in our wedding clobber so you can all take a squiz.

Thank you Lisa

Talking Today.

Today I'm taking it easy and just working on my Australia Day story for MLRPress called: Bush Bashin' I am just over the 10K mark so I better get cracking. I want to try and get it submitted to Kimberly before I head off to GRL. So I have over half to go unless I shorten it - who would know with me. 

I Also just realised how slack I have been on the whole blog story thing. Man, I better get cracking on those as well  - but first I better re read what I have so I am up to date and can figure out where Jettermane & Wind Walkers are going... If I don't Cinders may just track me down and kick my arse.

I have ordered 15 copies of The Lines of Marsden in print, and I will be offering a couple up as prizes for all those interested. I will write more about it when I have them in my hands. So until then I will away and get some writing done.

14 days till GRL
& counting down
