Today has flown past! It could be because I got up late today after going to a concert last night or because I've had lots of business dealings to complete but now I find it's mid-afternoon and I'm just getting to my blog. Time flies...
First off, part of what I did earlier was the drawing for Wedding Jitters. Congratulations ASHLEY LADD! Check your email. I need to know what format you'd like me to send. If you didn't win, stay tuned. A new contest is coming soon.
Speaking of contests, you have a few hours left to enter the Eternally Yours contest. Check the right pane of my blog for details. Do it now...details will disappear in the morning. If you missed my clue, here it is: My darling, I could spend eternity with you, thinking up new ways to have fun together.
I got a new review for Tribute for the Goddess today. Thank you NovelTalk and reviewer Melissa Kammer. Here's part of the review:
Brynn Paulin has penned a sweltering story. The characters are hot for each other and the sex scenes could set the pages on fire. She knows how to capture the reader’s attention, and keep it glued to the pages. This story was fascinating and had a few unexpected events. I was enamored with the characters, and I hope there will be future tales with some of the secondary characters. TRIBUTE FOR THE GODDESS is an extraordinary tale that shows there are no limits to love.

On to vampires...you were wondering how they fit in, weren't you? I love vampire books and this has been a vampire week. On Wednesday, I interviewed Jennifer Armintrout who writes phenomenal vampires in the series Blood Ties, out with Mira books. I've also completed the interview for next week with Dakota Rebel. We all know her vampire book, Sweet Dreams, rocks. In addition to that I'm reading Captive Fantasy by L. Rosario. OMG OMG OMG! LOVE IT! It's an ebook, but you can also get it in print. If you want a really hot vampire bite, treat yourself to this book. In the not as steamy, but extremely good category is the other vampire book I'm reading [see I told you guys I read a lot]. It's Accidental Vampire by Lynsay Sands. Love the book and if you've ever wondered who my favorite author is, wonder no more. Lynsay claimed that spot years ago. I love her books. I love her vampires--although they prefer to be called immortals.
See? It's been vampire-a-riffic this week. Obviously this isn't the only genre I read, but it is my favorite. Ironically, I don't know that I will ever do a vampire book. I have four written, but they're just sitting in my hard-drive collecting cyber-dust and waiting to be harvested. This is exactly as organ donor-y as it sounds. Just like a Robin Cook story, they're in a sort of stasis keeping their bits and pieces safe until I need them to give another story life. I have so many partial WIPs from my pre-published years, many of which need total rewrites. I'd like to somehow give them life and this is my way.
Well, I'm off to work on my current work in progress. This one won't be kept around for its bits and pieces. It already has a release date of April 21 from Total-e-bound. I'll be finishing it up with in the next few days...more on this next week.
One final thing...swing on over to Hitting the Hot Spot and read Bronwyn's blog on Misconceptions About the Romance Genre. Thank goodness it's not about misconceptions about romance writers. I was afraid I'd have to sell my high heels and purple feathered boa on ebay and give up the high-priced champagne I sip to candlelight while I spin my sultry tales. But it's not, and I'm safe for another day. Cheers!
