Diva News: Romance Divas Historical Workshop!


Fast draft

I’m sick.  This cold has been going around.  Not only friends but co-workers are feeling under the weather, so it really wasn’t a far leap that i would get sick as well.  Oh I tried to steer it off course.  I took vitamin after vitamin, drank orange juice, ate oranges… even ate chicken noodle soup.

It started off with a sore throat but it progressed later to a stuffy nose, nauseousness, a weakness that makes you feel faint when you stand up and now, coughing.

But, c’est la vie.

Starting Monday is fast draft at the romance divas.  I signed up for five pages a day so wish me luck!  I haven’t had much luck in the past with doing these types of page commitments.  Nanowrimo I’m able to do, but not page counts.  I guess it’s because some days I write more than others, or I feel more motivated.  But the purpose is to get pages out, to finish this thing because I’m itching to start the second.  For some reason the characters are chatty lately.  I’ve been having some doubts with my plots in FV as of lately, which is stalling me but that won’t be able to matter come Monday.  Well, it’s a subplot, but it’s one that’s throughout all the books, the reason for them all existing and what they do… and I’m stalled.  I once knew, thought I knew… but it’s back to the drawing board.

So for the next fourteen days, I’ll be fast drafting!

Sequel to Amber Heat best-seller Shifting Tides: Beneath A Midnight Sea…


When a mafia don’s bride-to-be goes missing, Peter Varien is hired to find her. Varien, an ex-cop turned private eye, takes the job despite the warning bells going off in his head.

He manages to track down the missing woman to a nightclub in Memphis, where she’s belting out jazzy torch songs with the boys in the band. She’s every man’s desire, with a body born of sin and a voice that enthralls, putting men under a sexual spell.

But it’s a spell under which Peter is determined not to fall.

Vivilyn Ondine is having the time of her life, given the power over human men through the control she wields as a sea siren. She’s never fallen in love, never truly surrendered–until she meets the handsome private investigator.

Soon, Peter and Vivilyn are in a race against time, and must join forces to defeat a dangerous enemy who will stop at nothing, even murder, to capture Viv and force her to reveal the location of the magical pearl known as the Soul of The Sea.
