I’m back!

Hey, I made it! Last weekend was quiet on here. I was in South Dakota for Wild Deadwood Reads. I never even cracked open my computer! I had a fun time. The whole family went, well except for our son because he lives on his own. Or at least where the Marines tell him too!

Finding Faith was available for the first time in print! Exciting! I ran a special where if you bought both Stealing Hope and Finding Faith you could get them for only $20.00 and autographed. Add shipping and I’d be willing to do the same for anyone interested. I’d just have to find out shipping costs. It all depends on what country!

Well, we camped for our trip and had a great time. Nothing blew up, fell off or broke body parts this time! Thank Goodness!

On the flip side, I’m heading out to South Carolina again, but the RV’s brake light came on, so I have it going to the shop. They’ll take a look at that and also the gas gauge that isn’t working. Then from there, I have to take it to get a new refrigerator installed. I’m hoping they can put in the backup camera at the same time. I’ll just have to wait and see.

The fun, the fun!

If you’re not interested in the paperback, grab your ecopy!

Finding Faith

The apocalypse had been and gone.

Those left banded together for survival, creating safety from the chaos.

They succeeded.

 

Faith wanted more, she wanted to live, to love, fly free. More than survival, Faith craved adventure. Leaving home, seeking a new life, all that ceased when she witnessed her sister being abducted-by dragons, creatures shrouded in myth. Determined to rescue her, Faith begins an adventure she never wants to end.

Dragon shifter Crag follows his heart, hunting for his fated mate. Once he finds her, Crag is determined to keep her safe, from all threats. Admitting he is a dragon shifter and involved in her sister’s kidnapping may be the end of them.

Until the interference of a race of dragons desperate for survival grasps their only chance, stealing Faith and drawing Crag along to save her.

Now,Let’s play a little!

Here’s a puzzle of my cover. I love these things, but I would have forgot if another author I know hadn’t done one of her cover reveal.

Go ahead and try it. It took me 2:08 to do it, lol.

What’s your time?

At Barnes & Noble today!

 

I’m heading out to Barnes & Nobles for a book signing today in West Towne Mall in Madison Wisconsin. Come on over! I’m allowed to bring three books so I’m going with Stealing Hope (because Finding Faith book 2 comes out May 7), A Dragon’s Treasure and Love Me Forever. In addition, I’ve been looking into turning my books into audio books. Exciting!

From Me to You ~ Are you in Milwaukee?

If you’re hanging in Milwaukee stop by the Hyatt on Killborn and grab some books! There is a book signing going on at 4:30 pm in the Atrium. Not sure how big it will be, but it has been fun so far!

I have only 3 books with me (multiple copies, though!)

 

Hope to see you there! I’ve got to run and head to more classes! Have a wonderful Saturday.

It’s only me!

I’m attending WisRWA in Milwaukee this weekend. I realized I forgot to post this morning. Blame it on lolling around on a king size bed! I was all bundled up reading In a Badger Way by Shelley Laurenston. If you’ve read her you know I was laughing my ass off!

Of course it started with Eve Langlais… I always assume crazy shifters are hers, lol. So I obviously didn’t know whose series the characters belonged to, but when I put her name in, I got what I wanted, which ended up being Shelley Laurenston. Go Figure.

So, if you haven’t read the crazy ass badgers, here is book 1

 

HOT AND BADGERED

It’s not every day that a beautiful naked woman falls out of the sky and lands face-first on grizzly shifter Berg Dunn’s hotel balcony. Definitely they don’t usually hop up and demand his best gun. Berg gives the lady a grizzly-sized t-shirt and his cell phone, too, just on style points. And then she’s gone, taking his XXXL heart with her. By the time he figures out she’s a honey badger shifter, it’s too late.

Honey badgers are survivors. Brutal, vicious, ill-tempered survivors. Or maybe Charlie Taylor-MacKilligan is just pissed that her useless father is trying to get them all killed again, and won’t even tell her how. Protecting her little sisters has always been her job, and she’s not about to let some pesky giant grizzly protection specialist with a network of every shifter in Manhattan get in her way. Wait. He’s trying to help? Why would he want to do that? He’s cute enough that she just might let him tag along—that is, if he can keep up . . .

 

It is $11.99 for the ebook, but oh my goodness is it good! I’m sure it is other places other than Amazon but that’s all I got!

 

 

 

 

So like I said, I wanted book 2 and I finally got it! It is only $9.99 and I’m cracking up over it. Not done yet since I’m at the writing conference, but we’ll see how late I sleep in. I’m going to do a bit of writing and reward myself by reading. Hope I don’t stay up too late!

 

In a Badger Way (The Honey Badger Chronicles Book 2)

 

“Hot and humorous.” —USAToday.com

Petite, kind, brilliant, and young, Stevie is nothing like the usual women bodyguard Shen Li is interested in. Even more surprising, the youngest of the lethal, ball-busting, and beautiful MacKilligan sisters is terrified of bears. But she’s not terrified of pandas. She loves pandas.

Which means that whether Shen wants her to or not, she simply won’t stop cuddling him. He isn’t some stuffed Giant Panda, ya know! He is a Giant Panda shifter. He deserves respect and personal space. Something that little hybrid is completely ignoring.

But Stevie has a way of finding trouble. Like going undercover to take down a scientist experimenting on other shifters. For what, Shen doesn’t want to know, but they’d better find out. And fast. Stevie might be the least violent of the honey badger sisters, but she’s the most dangerous to Shen’s peace of mind. Because she has absolutely no idea how much trouble they’re in . . . or just how damn adorable she is.

 

Again, I only have the Amazon link because that is where I bought it!

 

Enjoy and have a laugh!

From Me to You

Sorry! I’m at a writer’s retreat this weekend and won’t be posting sales today! I’m doing this in advance. Usually I get up Sunday and hunt out the sale, free and .99 cent books to post. Since I’ll be busy writing, I won’t have the time to hunt and post. Anything I post this far in advance might not be on sale on Sunday. They can be fickle!

On a good note, Finding Faith will be out May 7th!

Please don’t ask what it’s about! LOL! I don’t have the back cover blurb done. Not quiet yet. I’ve set a goal to have it completed by Tuesday. I’ll share, perhaps, over share then!

It involves a dragon, his mate, his annoying brothers and a kidnapping to save a race of dragons. Grab Stealing Hope to meet the characters!

Stealing Hope

The apocalypse has come and gone.
Those who survived learned to adapt.
Dragons awaken to once again reign over the skies.

Upon eruption of a volcano, Ari awakens to a changed world, and a knowing that his dragon’s mate is near. He saves her twice—once as a dragon, and again as a man—and wins her confidence.

Hope cried out, moaning, “just change me with pleasure?”

Hope is restless and unfulfilled until she meets Ari, the man of her fantasies. The sensual tension between them heightens with every touch. When their passion explodes, Hope gets pulled into the dragon’s mating ritual…and into a world of erotic sensation she never dreamed existed but now cannot live without. The dragon binds his mate to him with a ritual that shows Hope her true nature in this humorous erotic romance.

But, Finding Faith is with my editor. So this weekend I’ll be working on China Fleet Club. I’m hoping to have that book/novella (who knows how long it will be? I don’t have a clue yet!) done by June or July. Those of you I see at Writer’s on the River and Romance Rendezvous will have one or two new books to grab from me!

I’m aiming for four this year, we’ll see how that goes.  Plus I’m polishing up the children’s book I’ve been dabbling with for years! I want to do the illustration myself so I have to get back in the practice of drawing and painting. It’s been a bit!

If you see the name Rosie Passehl, that is the pen name I’ll be using for my children’s books. I’ve already started a Facebook page but am leaving it inactive for now. Not friending a soul yet. However if you feel the need to friend me, go right ahead! But their will be no naughtiness on that page.

 

From Me to You

Another snowy Saturday here in Wisconsin! My second day after retiring. I’m going to try to accomplish one thing everyday that needs doing. Yesterday was cleaning the toilet and sink in the upstairs bathroom. LOL. So you can see that my goals aren’t lofty. Just necessary. Today, I’m babysitting but I’m going to work in the bathroom again. Cleaning up the stuff that has accumulated in there for years. I’m determined to de-hoard my house! Well, it may not be that bad, but it’s bad enough!

My daughter is in Madison taking the test for her LPN license! I’m praying she passes. I’m sure she will. She’s studied hard to pass everything. Next year she’ll be doing the same to get her RN. I’m so proud of my little girl.

This isn’t just a random picture of one of my books. The cover is actually my daughter almost four years ago. Just before she had my granddaughter.

A Sailor’s Delight

 

Lee Santiago went from one mistake to the next. When a friend dies, exposing his mortality all too well Lee’s family steps in to force him to make something of himself. He can’t be a party boy all his life and if he wants to sign his life away, it will be on the dotted line. He doesn’t even have time to say goodbye. Anyway it was only a drunken one night stand.

Isabelle was always the good girl. Until that night. When the man she’d always worshiped finally noticed her. She couldn’t say no. She’s heartsick to find out he doesn’t remember it. Isabelle’s life crashes around her when the results are in. The truth comes out and she has nowhere to turn. She looks for Lee, but he’s gone.

Will he be man enough to step up and face the consequences when he learns the truth?

Well now that I’ve done my little plug, lol, I’ll continue. Right now our life revolves around our girls. The D and GD if I start abbreviating. It’s not that we ignore our son. Not even. But, he lives in South Carolina. He recently was stationed there. We’re proud of our Marine, too!

Besides babysitting, I’ll be writing. Once the D is home, I’ll start back up on Finding Faith. I’m getting closer to the end. Then, I’ll go over the beta read my buddy Tamara Hoffa did for me before she passed. Then it’ll be heading off to my editor, Molly S Daniels. The cover will be worked on within the next few days. The artist JM Walker is unavailable for the next few days.

Then, the dreaded blurb! Though, I’ve been thinking about it. I actually have been reading a book about how to make your blurb. It really seems to help. I’ve been doing the exercises in the book and it is taking shape! So I have to read a book to finish my book lol.

I’m really trying to get at least three books done by May. If I have one done, I’ll be satisfied, but not exactly happy. One of them will be more of a novella. I’ve been almost done with it for years but had it just sitting there. Mind you, it still needs editing and a cover. But, I’ll finish one book at a time! The other is a children’s book. I’m still trying to find an appropriate title. Not to mention, I need to get an art program (I’ve been searching for the right one) to do the illustrations. I’ll be publishing my children’s books under a pen name to keep the kiddies from seeing my steamy side! They grow up too fast as it is.

Have a good weekend, and don’t forget to check for Sunday Sales tomorrow!
