Sorry that I didn’t post more in the last week. I was doing page proofs for HOTTER AFTER MIDNIGHT and “Wicked Ways“–and, oh, wow, but doing the page proofs made the whole My-Book-Is-Coming-Out-Soon madness sweep through me. Then, the Magnificient M let me know that I’d be getting galleys soon–oh, yeah, seriously wonderful news.
And here’s a big hint: If you haven’t signed up to receive my newsletter yet, then you really should. Contests are coming.
I’ve also started to receive the first of my promotional materials. (More boxes will be coming. I’m still working on the design for my bookmarks.)
Um, yep, that’s a t-shirt for HOTTER AFTER MIDNIGHT. Overboard? Who? Me?
I’m going to be sending my promo items to upcoming conferences, and I spent part of the weekend autographing my materials (I always like to autograph the items I send out). If anyone reading this lovely post would like to receive an autographed cover image for HOTTER AFTER MIDNIGHT, just shoot me an email at: email@example.com, and I’ll be happy to send you one.
I do promise to be a better blogger in the coming week. Really.

Midnight Sins…available 12/08 from Kensington Brava
Atlanta police detective Todd Brooks is on the hunt for a rare killer–a female serial who leaves her male victims bound, naked, and dead in cheap hotel rooms.The twist:There’s no evidence of wounds on the bodies.It appears as if the life was just literally drained from the victims.Todd realizes the killer has to be Other–one of the many paranormal beings who walk the earth–beings that Todd has only recently discovered.The evidence in the killings soon leads him to the door of Cara Firon, a sexy club singer with secrets lurking in her sky blue eyes.
Todd falls for Cara, hard and fast, as any man would when confronted by a powerful succubus.However, Todd isn’t about to let his lust blind him to Cara’s guilt.He vows to take her, and, if necessary, take her down for the murders.What he doesn’t count on is falling for his chief suspect…
As for Cara, well, she’s not about to let some sick killer set her up for crimes that she hasn’t committed.Cara isn’t like the rest of her kind–she doesn’t want just wild, hot sex (though she does enjoy the sport); she wants love. Forever. The whole happily-ever-after that humans get. The more time she spends with her rugged detective, the more she realizes that she wants forever with him.
Unfortunately, the killer stalking the streets has other plans. If Cara and Todd can’t stop the murderer soon, then Todd may become the next victim…because the killings, they are very personal.And there is nothing like a revenge that is served up hell hot and death cold.

What you’ve just read isn’t the official back cover copy–I’ll post that a bit later (come on, it’s just January!), but I wanted to give a brief description of my succubus story. Hope you enjoyed it!! Now, I’m afraid I must get back to a truly painful task: synopsis writing. Yeck. Not my favorite sport.

Finally, finally–Allison Dubois is back. Medium will air again tonight on NBC, and, in case you can’t tell, I’m absolutely thrilled by this news.
I love Allison’s character–I think she is one of the best characters I’ve seen on TV in years. She’s completely normal–she has car pool issues, kid issues, job issues–but she is surrounded by the abnormal (that would be the ghosts she sees, the dreams she has). Normal surrounded by abnormal–a concept I’ve longed loved. I use that concept in my books–particularly in my upcoming Kensington Books. I like to keep a good, normal world as a base in my tales, and then layer it with paranormal events.
So, tonight, I plan to order Chinese, get comfy on couch, and see just what my good friend Allison has going on–I’m sure I won’t be bored.
