It’s my delight to welcome friend, author, blogger and reviewer, Elizabeth Silver, to my blog today. Along with her friend and writing partner, Jenny Urban, Liz creates awesome and steamy erotic romance which you can read about below. But first, Liz kicks our butts and tell us to get our irons in the fire. Here’s Liz–
Some of know that last weekend i submitted two manuscripts to two publishers for their consideration, plus one partial and a synopsis for a special submission request in romantic suspense. Since then i did a proposal for a Holiday story, although it was pretty rough. Two days ago i received word that the editor liked my partial for the romantic suspense and wants to see a FULL Manuscript. That means “write the book, Tara!” Since they are not accepting on partials, this was the very best outcome i could have. I am thrilled and delighted to be working on this new project called The Golden Dancer.
Then, to make this a red letter week double, yesterday i received an acceptance of my short novella, Volley Balls, from Etopia Press. This is a brand new publisher for me and i’m delighted to be working with them! The novella will be part of a summer anthology with a Beach Bums theme. This is the first time i have written in this short length, so creating the book was a learning experience as well as a labor of love. I really like this story.
There’s still two more stories out there. I will keep you up to date, but meanwhile, i am a Happy Dancin’ Fool!! And there will be new books coming. Next up, of course, is The Scientist and the Supermodel in May (probably May 31). This is Jake and Roan’s story and i’m loving going back and working on it as we edit for publication.
That’s my update!! The photo is for gratuitous enjoyment. Talk soon. : )
I realize it’s been awhile since i posted the Book Trailer for Genetic Attraction. I enjoyed making this trailer so much, thanks to the great workshop by Kris Tualla, so i want you to see it in case you haven’t. If you’ve seen it five times .. enjoy the music. LOL.

It’s my delight to welcome author and friend Drea Becraft to the blog today. (Drea designed the great header for my Book Blog) You may know Drea from her fantastic Yahoo community, Wickedly Sexy Romance.But today, she is introducing her new book, Live for the Todays. We’ll get to a yumlicious excerpt in a minute, but first i asked Drea some questions she was kind enough to answer for all of us:
I want to share this fun and delightful review of Genetic Attraction by Michelle R. of The Romance Reviews This is a really cool new review site that will have its official grand opening during the month of March, but is already more than active.
There’s a little contest down at the bottom of this post, so be sure to comment! : )
Here’s Michelle’s fun review:
Hot. Really. Really… HOT!
I have officially been corrupted. I’m not one for m/m in my m/f/m romances, but… have mercy… I just might have seen the light! If anyone can read Jake, Roan and Emmaline’s tale and not want to swap places with the lucky Emmaline, you’ve left me speechless. This girl doesn’t just get her cake and get to eat it too. She has pie, and cookies, and all kinds of yummy goodies. Color me jealous.
Jake has been pining for his boss, Dr. Emmaline Silvay, since he went to work in her lab. The doctors are working on a cure for cancer and she just may find it. But nothing will cure his infatuation for her. Not even when he met and surprised himself by falling in love with super *male* model, Roan. They’ve been together for a while now. Still in the closet about Jake’s love life, Emmaline is stunned to learn Jake’s girlfriend is a boyfriend.
Once she learns the truth, Emmaline wants Jake to have Roan at his award ceremony, so she attends as Roan’s date as cover. One thing leads to a whole weekend of things, and before you know it, my face is turning green with envy and red with ooh la la. Two yummy, sweet, caring, adoring alpha males who are smart, sexy and hot for one girl and each other. They cook for her, they bathe her, they seduce and romance her. What girl would walk away? She’s a nut for even considering it, much less doing it.
This is a quick novella read that clearly left me more than satisfied for its length. (That’s an understatement.) The characters were realistic and fun. All three of them charmed me as the time flew by and their story was told. It was fun and charming and that perfect beach read or bathtubs escape. Enjoy
Now, as a break from free books (i know, nobody really needs a break from free books) i am giving away a Starbucks gift card so you can have some coffee with your romance. Leave a comment and/or follow the blog and you’ll be entered to win. Think vanilla latte or hot chai! YUM. : )
