Please stop by and say hi if you have the time!


I will be participating in a big honking romance writers book signing on Sunday, March 17, as part of the California Dreamin' Romance Writers Conference. Lots of amazing writers will be there; I don't have a list of who-all signing, but I promise it's going to be stellar!

The deets:

Time: 1-2:30 pm (bookstore opens at 12:30 for anyone who wants to start browsing early)
Where: Doubletree Hotel in Santa Ana, CA 

I'm definitely signing Waking the Witch (gothic novel by Dayle Ivy) and "Braceleted" (erotic romance by Andrea Dale), and I hope to have several other books there as well. (Let me know ahead of time if there's a title you'd like, and I'll make sure to have it there for you!)

Hope to see you there! xo

Reading is sexy

You know what’s coming up? Well, yes, today is Imbolc/Candlemas/Gŵyl Fair y Canhwyllau (bless you), but in two weeks, we’ve also got Valentine’s Day.

Yeah, yeah, it’s a commercial holiday and we should show our beloveds the same attention every day, etc. But I confess, I like an excuse to be extra-romantic. And what’s more romantic than books?

(You knew I was going there, so don’t pretend to be surprised.)

This year I have print books for sale as well as electronic editions – books you can tuck under your lover’s pillow or wrap up in white paper with a glittery bow and red lipstick-print kisses all over it.

“Braceleted” is pretty sexy, but it’s also a delightful little small-town romance. It’s a long short story, so it’s only $5.99, and you could put it in a gift bag with some furry red handcuffs and Nag Champa incense and chocolate, because what’s Valentine’s Day without chocolate? Get a big honkin’ heart-shaped one. Gods knows that worked on me once.

Give In: Stories of Erotic Submission is a collection with a harder edge, but while it’s BDSM erotica, most of the stories are kinda romantic, because I’m a romantic kinda girl.

Speaking of girls, you could also check out Kiss Me Hello: Lesbian Erotic Romance, because, well, romance!

Although it’s not a romance per se, the hero in Waking the Witch (a gothic novel), but the hero’s interactions with the heroine are crucial to her journey, so…. I have two other gothics coming out that are romances, but they’re just not going to be ready by V-Day. Maybe this one will tide you over?

If you – or your intended giftee – is into fantasy/science fiction, my collection Written on the Coast has a few stories that could be considered romantic, too. It’s just not the theme of the collection.

I’m new to this print book thing, so I don’t have a lot of copies on hand and I’m not sure how long it would take to get more, so if you want a signed copy, I’d say tell me right now if you want it by Valentine’s Day!

I now return you to your regularly scheduled spring festival of your choice.
