blueribbonRRJuly started with a bang for me, no pun intended. I released Zeke and Ember’s story, Embattled Minds, and it was an immediate best-seller. Actually, a month down the road it is still on several lists, including military and police procedurals. I can not tell you how thrilling it is to hit lists like that. And readers and reviewers are loving it. I just received a blue-ribbon endorsement from Romance Junkies reviews.

“After reading this book, I am thoroughly convinced that it is one of the all-time top series I have ever experienced. Five ribbons just doesn’t do this book justice, it is well worth 10 ribbons because it is a perfect romance!”

Thank you Suzie!

I went to Fandom Dest in Louisville Ky last week, and it was fascinating. Though the literary track was lacking and a little offensive, the sci-fi fan part of it was pretty cool. Yes, I’m a geek at heart. Grew up watching Star Trek and enjoy the series even now, so it was a real treat to see William Shatner speak. He was very articulate and gracious, even though a couple of the audience members were testing his patience.

I also saw the incredibly luscious Jason Mamoa, and can I say how gorgeous he is in person? Literally, he took his toboggan off at the Q & A, and people sighed. Loudly. Felt a little bad for the guy, because he couldn’t go anywhere without people trying to latch on. Yes, I admit, I latched on. BUT, I paid $40 to do it. The actors charged for the pleasure of being in a picture with them, ranging from $100 for a Gene Simmons pic ($500 to sign a guitar!) down to $20 or $30 for smaller actors. I think everybody charged.

Saw a glimpse of Stan Lee in a Q&A, Michael Rooker, Norman Reedus, Alan Tudyk, Lew Temple, Adrian Paul, Butch Patrick and several others.

I’m currently writing my ass off for a secret project I should be able to talk about more later this month. I’m also working on Chad’s book, due out in December-ish.

Also, I paid my fee to attend Arizona Dreamin’ as one of it’s featured authors in May. Here’s a link to check it out. If you’re going to be in the area, let me know and we’ll see about getting together!

Happy reading Peeps!
