Serendipity!

IN THE NEWS: NJ disc jockey to part with Jenny's number. Read more HERE.


I love saying serendipity. Kinda rolls off the tongue.
But the reason I'm saying it is because I just found out fellow Samhain writer, Diane Craver is having a contest all February and March, celebrating small presses. (Because they rock!)
And to kick her contest off, she will be giving away a copy of my e-book The Role of a Lifetime to some lucky commenter. :) What a nice surprise!
Contest ends Feb. 16 to win my book, then another contest begins!
Check it out!

Today I'll try to write my chapter six. I'm not looking forward to it because it's in my hero's POV and I don't like to spend too much time in there because he's got "issues" and I can't make him scary (as much I would like to) because it's a sweet romance.

Speaking of scary... I'm reading Devil Falls by Angelle Trieste right now. Now that author knows how to write a tortured hero! He's awesome! Damien Kirk is one part Heathcliff one part Mr. Rochester and is totally making my "scary" hero look about as threatening as a butterfly.

Anyhew, I'm really enjoying this book and as soon as I'm done, will speak more about it. For now, I'm off to write!

Nice promotion opporunity!

Sam isn't scary. Just make the reader sympathetic to him. Personally, I LOVE a tortured hero as long as he works out his issues by the end of the book.

Right now I'm reading Suzanne Brockmann's OVER THE EDGE, which has two tortured heros. Great book!

I don't think there's anything wrong with having a slightly scary hero in a sweet romance. I say write him the way he wants to be.
