Yipeeekiiyiiyaaa!

I just signed a contract for an old wild west romping short story!


Coming soon from The Wild Rose Press.



Standoff at the Waterin' Horse Saloon

Bridget Schneider has a few things to say to the cowboy who stole her heart over a year ago and never came back. Sneaking into the Waterin’ Horse Saloon to confront him, the last thing she expects to find is Jonas Decker immersed in a bathtub in all his God-given glory. Her righteous indignation evaporates in the steam and heat of his naked chest and flirtatious smile—but she’s not about to let her anger be hog-tied by sudden...distractions. Jonas might’ve stolen her heart, but she’s sure as shootin’ gonna get her pride back!

And so it Begins...



Yes, I have now stepped foot through the 'sports mom' door. Funny how it is the hubby's idea to sign them up for these, yet it is the wife who plays taxi service LOL.
My oldest starts softball next week. He already met his coach and got his uniform....
...doesn't he look cute! Funny thing is that his team is called the Canaries and during bowling this past winter, his team was also called the Canaries LOL.
Then the Legion held a town parade to open the 'summer sports season'. Here are the boys walking with all the various teams, parents, coaches and officials down mainstreet. They had the Legion Pipe band leading us and bringing up the rear was a fire engine. Everytime the horns went off, the boys jumped LOL. But it was a lot of fun and I am soooo counting it as exercise today because it was a fair walk from the Legion to the beachfront and of course we had to walk back to the Legion to get the car afterwards LOL.

Weekend in the Sun!

Yes, a holiday weekend and we have sun...go figure LOL.



Okay, so I'm being a bit of a bad girl and slipping in a short story that came to me from the recent bombardment. It's just too fun to resist because it revolves around the 1970's--how GROOVY is that! What fun it is to research the lingo and clothes.



So I hope all you cats have a far out weekend! Catch you on the flip-side!

Squeeeeee 5 ANGELS!!

OMG OMG OMG. I was on Romance Divas and someone had put up a review for their book and mentioned that they didn't even know about it and only found it because they had googled themself. So, for fun, I googled myself and guess what?

Yep, found an AWESOME review that I didn't even know existed for my short story, Cheatin' Hearts.

Cheatin’ Hearts

5 Angels!! From Fallen Angel Reviews

Stacy Dawn had me laughing and completely drawn into Cheatin’ Hearts at the first page. Quite a feat when you consider the story is told in eleven pages. The author has taken what could have been a predicable night looking for love and delivered a romance with refreshing wit. Readers are brought into Cara’s plight immediately. Cara can’t believe she let her sister talk her into coming to a bar. Just because her sister found a man doesn’t mean any good ones are left.

Ms. Dawn’s usage of fresh dialogue really keeps this story light and funny as readers learn Cara has plenty of experience with losers and liars. When a Stetson is placed on her head, she doesn’t know whether to roll her eyes or hope it might belong to a man who might just be worth a second date. Her decision to find out just where the Stetson came from is sure to strike a humorous chord with any reader. If you are looking for a light, quick romance, Cheatin’ Hearts fits the bill. This is my first exposure to Stacy Dawn’s writing, but if this in indicative of the entertainment to be had from her work; I will definitely be looking for more.

Ask me...

Go on...ask me what I did this morning?

For the first time this spring, I took a book out onto the porch, sat out in the sunshine and simply read. Best of all, it's a good book. Don't Look Down by Crusie/Mayer. Loving it! (Yes, I'm slow, I've just gotten into the Crusie fad LOL)


Looks like I wasn't the only one enjoying the sunshine ROFL....

How cool is this!

I just heard fellow Romance Diva,Gemma Halliday's double RITA nominated novel, Spying in High Heels, is in development for a television series on the USA Network!!! It’s currently one of five new shows being developed for their fall 2007/2008 season.

Spying in High Heels follows shoe designer Maddie Springer, who in an effort to track down her missing boyfriend, realizes that her knack for fashion also serves another purpose: it makes her a great detective. Maddie's uniquely female perspective helps her pick up clues, using her designer's eye to discern tell tale shapes, colors and patterns, among other things. Along with her best friend Dana, an out-of-work actress, Maddie decides to open a detective agency operating out of her stepfather's hair salon.

Not all shows in development make it to the air, but this one should! If you want to see Maddie and Ramirez on the small screen, write to the USA Network and tell them you heard about SPYING IN HIGH HEELS and can’t wait to watch it. Or, if you’ve read the book and liked it, tell them that, too! Contact the programming department at the USA Network: feedback@usanetwork.com

In the meantime, read up on Gemma's books, including Undercover in High Heels & Killer in High Heels.

Zzzzzzzoo Days


We took advantage of the beautiful day and headed off to the Toronto Zoo yesterday.


It was the first chance I got to use my digital camera there and I had soooo much fun. Can you guess what the theme of the day for the animals were?
























I
should say, everyone was snoozing except for Jaque here below. He was, uh, let's say busy procreating but, like every other man on the planet, started strutting his stuff the minute he was done like "Oh yeah, who's de man! I'm de man!" It was soooo funny!


It was a great day!
