Andrew’s First GRL Word of the Day

Hello all.  I’m at GRL and I did my first Word of the Day of the conference.  Yesterday I was going to dinner with Amber Kell and J Scott and we talked about words for wasting time.  So I did a word of the day with mine.  I really hope you like it and I hope to do more words of the day while I’m here with some guest worders.  Enjoy!!!!!

Alot Happens Between Loathing and Love

When I started writing this story I didn’t know exactly what I was getting myself in for.  I asked myself what would happen if the person who quashed my high school dreams came into my life later in life and I had the power to make their dreams come true.  Would I use that power for good or for evil?  If it was in the course of my job, would I stand up and do my job, or take the weasel way out?  These were all things I got to explore with his book and I’d like to think I’m … Continued

Release Day

I’m going let you all in on a little secret.  I have had over 100 release days in my career.  The exact number is hard to count, but there have been a lot.  And I still get as nervous and anxious with each one as I did with my very first release.  Each time I hope readers will like it what I wrote.  I put a lot of myself in each story and I want the reader to love it because liking my work is in a way liking me.  I know that may sound a little strange, but it’s … Continued

Andrew and Dirk’s Word of the Day

I was in the mood for another word of the day.  I really hope you like this one.  I thought it was rather cute.  Dominic left on Thursday to visit  his family and I’ve been home alone.  I’m realizing I don’t do home alone very well.    Enjoy!

Release Day – The Gift

Sometimes gifts are unexpected and sometimes they come at you from out of the blue and knock you over.  Those are the ones you don’t see coming.  In The gift, neither character is looking for love or expects to find it in any way.  They both have issue, either inherited or based upon the decisions they made in life, that make them feel as though love, true love  (The Princess Bride just flashed in my mind) is not something that is in the cards for them.  This story was difficult to write  the premise put a lot of restrictions on what I … Continued

A Sneak Peek – The Gift

In honor of the sale at Dreamspinner which ends July 31 at midnight, I wanted to give all my fans an advance sneak peek into The Gift which is releasing on August 10.  I got to have a lot of fun writing this story.  I have to confess that I’d been watching quite a few romantic movies when I was writing this story.  🙂  I really hope you like it.   Ember is a drop-dead gorgeous Las Vegas escort. He notices Alejandro in some of the classes he teaches at his side business—a yoga studio. Then, color-blind Alejandro further captures … Continued

My Conference Odyssey – Close to the End

Hello from wonderful, energetic New York City.  I am nearing the end of my three week conference odyssey that started about three weeks ago in Munich.  I am at the RWA National Conference.  The previous conferences in Munich and Tampa were reader conventions.  This one is most definitely centered on craft.  I have met some amazing authors. I set next to Amelia Grey and near Patience Griffith at the literacy signing.  I got a signed book for my mother form Robyn Carr.  I have attended workshops on building sexual tension and writing Killer Romantic Suspense.  It’s been really awesome.  I’ve … Continued

Sneak Peek – Fire and Rain

This morning I thought I’d give you all I little peek into what I’m working on.  I started Fire and Rain four days ago and it is already about a quarter completed.  I think this is going to be one of those stories with a life of its own and I just need to hold on for the ride.  I only hope my heart can take it.   “They’re already full,” the man said, though he sounded like a kid.  “We got turned away from there a few hours ago.” Bonner’s suspicion rose.  We?  What exactly was going on under … Continued
