Menage a Blog Wrap-Up

As many of you know, I was in a wonderful ménage a trois recently. Okay, don’t get too excited if you’re not sure of what I’m talking about!

The Tour de Force Menage a Blog sponsored by the Indie Book Collective featured 3 authors daily for 5 days. The goal was to get readers’ comments and give away free e-books and prizes, including a KINDLE! I was so happy to ménage with the talents of Jacquie Rogers and Theresa Ragan. 

Pick up their books! Both are currently in the TOP 10 bestsellers list!

Thank you Jacquie and Theresa for being such fantastic ménage playmates! 


As for me, I had over 1000 visitors to my blog on one day, gave away close to 200 copies of my erotic novel Fall into Winter, and now it’s become the:

 #1 bestselling erotica book


#1 bestselling anthology


#1 bestselling fiction book on Smashwords!  

This all happened in less than a week!

But I couldn’t have done it without some very important people – YOU!

You’re the readers, writers, and reviewers who’ve helped move my book to the top! So before I announce the winner of my Author Prize, I’d like to acknowledge the reviewers who wrote so beautifully about my book.

I’m wooing you for comments against Jacquie Rogers and Theresa Ragan. Whoever gets the most comments from this blog tour moves on to the semi-finals.


Prizes, you ask? What prizes?

Before I tell you about prizes, let me tell you about the sexy babes I’m up against.

First is the beautiful Theresa Ragan with her action-adventure called Finding Kate Huntley.

Blurb: During a vacation in the Caribbean, fifteen-year old Kate Huntley’s father, a prominent U.S. scientist, is murdered before her eyes. For the next ten years Kate grows up alone in Haiti, one of the most dangerous and poorest countries in the Western Hemisphere. Not a day goes by that she doesn’t think of her father. Kate pushes herself to become stronger, mentally and physically. Every day is a struggle for survival. And yet she lives for only one reason…revenge.

Next, we have the lovely Jacquie RogersHer novel is a western romance entitled Much Ado About Marshals.

Blurb: Daisy Gardner’s fondest desire is to be a lady detective, only her parents want her to marry a local rancher. To avoid this fate, Daisy forms a new scheme–to hire, then marry the town’s new marshal. She will be his partner in crime solving and have a husband as dedicated to absolute honesty as she is! With just one look at the dashingly handsome marshal, she knows he’s the right man for the job. But when her dream man turns out to be an imposter, can her heart override her need for truth and justice?
