Oh no - NaNo!

Usually, I love the month of November...

The fall colors, the crisp Autumn air, and NaNo!! National Novel Writing Month.

But this year...not so much.

I've had sick kids, a broken furnace, out of town visitors, and my word count has suffered because of it.

But...I still feel very motivated in what I have accomplished, since I now have over 27,000 more words than I did three weeks ago.

So while I may not be considered a "winner" of NaNo this year, at least I'm almost halfway done with my next book! Yay! *Throws confetti*

And in case you haven't seen's the book trailer!

Please note: While the short-story companions in this series are YA, the main books are very much ADULT PNR due to the explicit sex scenes.

And finally, to all my fans...thank you all for supporting this new endeavor!

Flutter Blog Tour

Today I'm very excited to welcome Melissa Andrea for my stop of her Fluttober Blog Tour.

I have the honor of sharing the bios for her amazing characters: Sara, Adan, and Andres.

So without further ado...

Sara Alejandra Marquez

The Spanish beauty that attracts the attention of everyone with her dark, mesmerizing, shimmery, skin, cascading midnight black hair, and wild hazel eyes.

At 17, her problems should be minimal, but Sara finds nothing insignificant about being buried alive or the Fluttering sensation coursing just beneath her skin, coming to life every time she is around the mysterious boy. Sara can’t fight the attraction she has to Adan or the maddening effects he has on her. With the constant fighting out home with her uncle, Andres, she takes refuge in the arms of the wrong guy.

As Sara searches for answers, she finds the more time she spends with Adan, the more she realizes he might not be as mysterious as she thinks.

“The silkiness of his voice was a torturous caress
that I was willing to endure for the rest of my life.” – Sara

Adam Reyes Delacruz
Is the new guy in town, with his striking dark hair, sun kissed skin, and intensely, electric blue eyes, that spark out of control every time he is around Sara. 

Created for Sara and Sara alone, his need to live and die to keep her safe will go much further then just wanting to keep her protected.  Having been close enough to touch her, smell her, he can longer blend into the background of her life.

Adan’s battle has been lost, but Sara’s war still remains and Adan must remember his mission and getting close to Sara can destroy everything.

“I tried to stay away from you Sara, I did,
but that nearly killed me and I won't do it again. I can't." - Adan.

Andres Delgado
6 feet tall, dark and very dedicated to his responsibility and those responsibility just got a lot hard now that Sara knows something just isn’t right with her life. Suspicious and angry over everything Andres says, he must learn to live with Sara’s cold shoulder.

As Sara’s Watcher, Andres wants nothing more than to keep her safe and young at least until her birthday. 

He knows that is coming fast he will have to tell Sara the truth about everything: Who she is, what she will have to do and more importantly – what she is. 

OMG...I love them already!! And now for one more bio: 

Melissa Andrea
I find it hard to sum up my life in a paragraph, but I’ll try.

Reading has always been a passion for me, and writing as instinctive as breathing. Every inhale is an idea; every exhale a creation. Flutter will be my debut release, and I couldn’t be more excited about it! The only thing I do better than writing you ask? Making beautiful girls. My daughter’s will always be my greatest accomplishment.

I was born in Denver, Colorado –but I will always think of sunny Arizona as my home. I don’t have a big family, but I’m close with my sister, brother & my mom. My mom is my hero, my inspiration, and I couldn’t have asked for a more amazing person to be raised by.

4 things you should know about me: I’m very girly, but I can get down and dirty with the best of them. I adore the color pink, I love things that sparkle (including vampires) and I like even numbers (hence 4 things about me, not 5).

I'd like to thank Melissa for including me in her first blog tour and wish her much success on this amazing journey!

Cover Reveal

I'm so thrilled to have been invited to participate in this great anthology. Christmas Lites II brings together authors from across the globe as they unite to spread holiday cheer and raise money for a very important cause. 

All proceeds from the book are being donated to the National Coalition Against

Domestic Violence. Not only will you get a taste of the spirit of the season, but you will do so knowing you did your part in helping a very worthy cause.

My contribution is a short-story companion to my Ovialell series, titled The Rise of Rae. But you will also delight in the various stories the other authors have created which include fairytales, mysteries, journeys with zombies and monsters, vampires, angels, trips to the North Pole, and much much more.

Thank you for joining me this Christmas season and contributing to such a wonderful cause.

Also, keep your eyes peeled for my next companion, Shay and the Box of Nye, coming December 24, 2012, for even more Christmas cheer.
