Guest Willa Edwards

I’m so honored to have Willa Edwards on my blog today, and teary-eyed from the wonderful things she has to say!  Please help her celebrate her debut release, Naughty List!  She’s offering a free copy for commenters, too.

I’ve wanted to be a writer ever since I realized you could earn a living making up stories (still working on that part). When I was fourteen years old I accidentally bought a romance novel, and had a revelation. All the stories I’d been writing, that I’d been calling paranormal, horror or mystery, were really romances. I was a romance writer.

I had a similar revelation a year and a half ago when I met Joely in a writers group and purchased her novel “Dear Sir, I’m Yours.” My writing style evolved and a dove head first into the epublishing world.

Today I stand before you on the release date of my very first publication. And I definitely feel its due in part to Joely. To her amazing work that shows the sweet and spicy side of all relationships, her bravery to write the truth (even if she has to do it with her eyes closed) and the support she lends so selflessly to other authors.

In honor of all Joely’s done for me I wanted to give a way a copy of my release, Naughty List, here today. Leave a comment and throw your name into the Santa cap. I’ll pick a winner at the stroke of Christmas.

Eric has been in love with Callie since the day they met, one month after someone else put a ring on her finger. Since her engagement ended Eric has been biding his time, waiting for her to be ready. Until he finds a naughty list of Christmas wishes hidden between her couch cushions with his name on the top.

He’s willing to do anything to make Callie happy, including take on the role of dominant Santa Claus and spank her to a blow-your-stockings-off orgasm. But is she ready for everything he wants? Does she want his love?

Guest Blogging about Ruin

Leah Braemel was kind enough to host me today where I talk about the hero of The Bloodgate Guardian, Ruin: The Trials and Tribulations of Naming a Hero.  Coming June 14th from Carina Press!

For vacation day 2, Littlest Monster was home again.  She probably could have gone, but it was field day, aka play outside all day, and her ear was still hurting.  Plus she fell asleep in the car on the way home from taking Middle to school, so she just wasn’t feeling the best yet. 

I still managed to work on my plot and had a huge revelation — that totally changes everything I planned to do in this book.  Squee and sigh, because it’s a cool twist, but a pain, because I can’t keep as much of my subplots as I hoped.

I’m still struggling with the romance aspect too.  I’ll continue working on that today on my first “vacation” day with no monsters at home!

Tomorrow, I’m taking a beginning knitting class in the afternoon at a cool new yarn place that opened here in town.  I can’t wait!
