I have eye candy

FYI, you need to read that title in a sing-song voice to make it sound the way I intended

So I have a couple of little treats for you. First, I finally got around to making video trailers for Risking It All and Last Call. Okay, I didn't make them, my lovelies from my publishing house did, but I did pick out the graphics and come up with the taglines.

Anyone interested in seeing them? That's what I thought.

Risking It All and Last Call

Another little FYI, I start to get major butterflies at :48 with RIA video. *sigh*

Okay, now for the eye candy. Against my better judgment (because I knew how addicted I would become!) I created a Pinterest account. Okay, full disclosure? I already had one but logged into it once and never bothered to go back. But I went back a few days ago. Oh, boy did I ever.

Let me throw a few things at you: Memphis's motorcycle. Cabin D. Ian Somerhalder. The mischievous and lovable Ben and Jerry from Last Call. Las Vegas. Jensen Ackles. Emma's ring from the short story A Christmas Kiss. David Boreanaz.

What does all that have in common? Well, if you've ever wondered about any of that and more, then you need to follow me on my Pinterest journey. Yep, click right here and find out everything you could want about not only my books but me as well. The men I deem swoon worthy, the actresses I love, places I want stamped on my passport--do they even stamp anymore? See, I have no idea because I don't have a passport (yet) but when I do look out. 

It's a work in progress, but it's getting there and I have some fun ideas up my sleeve still.

Enjoy the videos, and don't forget to let me know what you think!

The readers rock!

I am a bad, bad blogger. Another month has gone by without a peep from my end, but real life does tend to get in the way.

I do have exciting news, though. Risking It All made it to the #3 on the TWCS PH Best Sellers list! Yes, say it with me now: OH EM GEE! I'm surprised those around me aren't deaf when I found that out. I have never made it into the top 5 before! And that is due to all of YOU who have bought the book and continue to support it. So thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!

Another squeal moment: RIA only needs 91 readers until it reaches 1000 added on Goodreads. I don't even care how small that seems to some authors, to me that is HUGE! A THOUSAND readers? Are you freaking kidding me?! I was impressed with the little recognition Last Call received, this is completely blowing me away. Cloud nine is even too low for me right now, I kid you  not!

Now, I've had quite a few emails or comments left on reviews on Goodreads or messages on my FB author page asking if Risking It All will have a sequel. The answer I never planned for there to be a book two, and honestly, I'm totally shocked some of you want one! I'm sure if I really thought about it I could think of some more hair pulling things for Kennedy to do, but the thing is, I liked how the book ended. Does that mean you'll never get to know what happened to Kennedy and Memphis down the road? I never said that....

Really, I just wanted to take a few minutes when I wasn't neck deep in laundry or packing lunches or running kids here and there to thank all of you who are making RIA a success. It couldn't be done without every single one of you. Much love and thanks!
