Head over to my website for the next installment of CODE NAME: WILLOW, then come back here and tell me what you think. Good, bad, silly, whatever--I want to hear it.

And this week, I'll draw two names at random from the comments and the winners will get a free autographed book from my backlist.

So what are you waiting for? Go! Read! Then come back and comment for your chance at a free book.
And while you're reading, be sure to check out my blog post on the eHarlequin Intrigue Authors blog as well. The topic: our favorite types of heroes. Yum.

Blog post in eHarlequin

I've had Internet woes all weekend, so I didn't get to let y'all know about my post on eHarlequin's Intrigue Authors Blog.

Here's a little hint about the topic:

Remembering 9/11/2001

Each year, I struggle for a meaningful way to honor the memories of the people who died on 9/11/2001 in the attacks on the Twin Towers, the Pentagon and Flight 93.

Today, I discovered Project 2996, which apparently has been going on for a few years now, and I never knew. I think it's a fitting, beautiful and timely reminder of not just what was lost but who was lost on 9/11. I hope you'll take some time today to read the various tributes to the people behind the numbers.

Free Fic Friday - Chapter 6

It's Free Fic Friday again! Chapter 6 of CODE NAME: WILLOW is up.

This week, I'd like those of you who are reading the story to do me a favor--please tell your reading friends about Free Fic Friday. One of the reasons I decided to make CODE NAME: WILLOW available for free is that I don't have any books out in 2009. I have new books coming (I'm hoping as many as three books out next year), but I'm a fairly new author and an absence from the bookshelves of over a year doesn't do much to help build my readership.

So if you're reading CODE NAME: WILLOW and enjoying it, please tell someone else about it!

Chapter 5 of Code Name: WILLOW is up!

Lots happening in this chapter--blink and you'll miss something.

Today's bling for commenting: I'll pay your way (up to $25) to a Reader's Luncheon of your choice. (Birmingham's Southern Magic is holding a great one in the fall, with the delightfully subversive Anne Stuart as our keynote speaker). So if you comment and you have a Reader's Luncheon in mind, be sure to mention it in your comment.

Now, get to reading!

Sold again!

I can't believe I forgot to blog about this!

I sold two more books to Harlequin Intrigue, both in the Cooper Justice series!

I don't have final titles or even publication dates yet, but I've agreed to the terms and I'm hoping that at least one of the two new books will come out in 2010. The first book, working title RUNNING FOR COVER, features Cooper brother Luke, a former Marine Intel officer whose secretive past is about to catch up with him big time, including the son he never knew he had and the woman he never stopped loving.

And the second book, working title BULLETPROOF BACHELOR, features Aaron Cooper, a Chickasaw County Sheriff's Dept. investigator looking into a suspicious fire that damaged the home of one of his high school classmates, formerly nerdy brainiac Melissa, a lawyer whose pro bono work with battered women may have put her in a killer's crosshairs. Aaron barely knew her name in high school, even though she nursed a secret crush on him. But this time around, it's Aaron who's all hot and bothered, while Melissa has plenty of good reasons to resist the charms of the youngest Cooper son.

I'll update you with real titles and publication dates as soon as I know them.
