Sexy Texas Vampires and Good Chatting

Paraphernalia chat at PNR last night went fantastic! I had a blast. I got there a few minutes after 7 PM central, and discovered that not only were authors Diane Whiteside and Kathleen Dante there, so was Robin D. Owens--author of the novels Heart Mate and Heart Thief. So if you heard a loud "squee!" around 8 PM Eastern/ 7 PM Central, uh, that was me. ^_^

The evening kicked off with a little chat, and our book blurbs. I was a bit nervous with so many blurbs flying around, so I waited until the moderator called on me before I posted mine. The warm reception to Crossing Borders loosened my mood, and afterward I answered a few questions about ebooks and formats; then did a little plugging for Cobblestone. I was very happy with all the positive vibes I received.

I didn't run a contest last night. I'd intended to, but my PR merchandise didn't arrive in time, and since the chat applet was an unfamiliar one, I didn't feel comfy doing the number game for a free download. I couldn't quite keep up! ^_^ However, Kathleen Dante and Diane Whiteside did some fantastic giveaways. I won a copy of The Hunter's Prey, by Diane Whiteside. *shimmy - shimmy - booty wiggle* Sexy Texas Vampires? Hubba, hubba, baby! Count me in! As for my own contest, I'll just have to make up for it here in blogland once my goodies arrive.

Well, I'm off to go work on Wicked Temptation. I need to do some surgery to chapter three.

BTW, the picture above is from the El Yunque rain forest in Puerto Rico. Gorgeous isn't it? I know it's unrelated to the topic, but I was in a rain-foresty mood when I woke up this morning. That reminds me, I need to buy that movie Medicine Man (Sean Connery) on DVD. ^_^


  1. Glad you had a good chat! Sorry I missed it! And, the pic is beautiful.

  2. Ah...mi Puerto Rico querido... *wg* El Yunque is a dwarf rainforest because most of the plants are small size compared to the Amazon, and it's awesome. I've been there tonz of times, and I can't even begin to tell you the good vibes that you get there.

    I'm so happy the chat went so great. Wooohooo! With the interview and that chat, people are really getting to know you as a writer. And that's awesome. Okay, I'm also jealous you won a copy of The Hunter's Prey. hehehe!

  3. Glad your chat went well. I've heard they can either be fantastic or --- complete duds. Happy to hear yours went great AND that you won stuff. Can't beat that! lol

    Good luck on chapter surgery. At least you're writing. I can't manage a word it seems. Waah.

  4. What an incredible picture!!!

    Glad the chat went good for you...I wish I could have been there. My plate seems overflowing these days, but I'll try to make the next one!
