Great New Contest Prizes!
I was thrilled and flattered last April when an online discussion of my erotic novel Carrie’s Story (w/a Molly Weatherfield) attracted 345 posts. Not bad, I’d have to say, for a book that was first published in 1995 (and which I would never have dreamed would still be in its 16th printing as I write … Continue reading Molly and Me… a new contest soon
“Right after reading it,” Jennie says in her wonderfully positive DearAuthor review of Janet Mullany’s Mr. Bishop and the Actress I thought it was an A- (perhaps because my natural inclination is to think a straight A read requires more angst).” But, she continues, since a few weeks later the book has still stayed with … Continue reading Something for Everyone: A Comedy Tonight
Along with Linda’s reply to my contest question about why booklovers are such sexy people, Cheryl from New Jersey contends that it’s because we’re open to “varied thoughts, opinions, and beliefs,” while Anais from Nice, France suggests that (as we fall in love with those we have something in common with), booklovers will of course … Continue reading But Wait! There’s More!
Congratulations to Linda, from Fontana, CA, for winning my just-finished contest, where I asked entrants to tell me briefly, in their own words, why booklovers are such sexy people. I picked Linda randomly (such being the rules of my contest page), but her entry was certainly striking: It’s “because,” she said, “we know everything from … Continue reading Sexy Braininess, in Many Voices

Whatever it would take for me to figure out how she made something so light-hearted and entertaining so smart, believable, and wonderfully well-plotted. But for right … Continue reading Double Contest for Booklovers — Come Play With Us
And a sheepish apology. Because, dear bewildered contest-lovers — you are not going blind. My current contest should indeed have ended on October 3 (as you were quite quite sure my contest page said), and not November 14 (as it clearly says now). Apologies. I messed up. So intently was I preparing my erotic writing … Continue reading Sense and Sensuality Basket Contest Update
Congratulations to Lettetia from St. Helens, OR, who — as the winner of my just-completed contest — is now richer by some ten or a dozen autographed copies of books by me and my fellow bloggers at History Hoydens. A new contest is going up today. Check it out… And congratulations (and thanks too) as … Continue reading Contest (and Auction) Winners! Yay!
A man wakes up in a strange bed, with only a whiff of lovely scent to remind him how he got there: He sniffed: rosemary and lavender [hanging from the ceiling beams to dry]. And something else, spicy as cinnamon, tart as lemon. A woman. The sheets of her bed smelled like her. — from … Continue reading Sense and Sensuality — for a wonderful cause
