February 2012 already !!

Good morning and happy Thursday!  Can you believe it's already almost the end of the first full week of February  2012.  It got here so fast.  I'm not sure i was really ready but nevertheless, it's here.  January went by so fast I don't even remember what all i did.   Did you commit to any New Year's resolutions?  I think every year I  tell myself I'll be losing weight but it never really happens so this year my resolutions are to write more and to spend more time with my family. 

Unfortunately we didn't have any snow so it didn't feel much like Christmas, quite unusual for this part of the state.   We made up for it with the New Year snowfall.  I bet we got 6 inches, more than enough to make it fun!  I'm also pretty impressed my kids all made it to watch the ball drop on the  the new year.  However, they were asleep about ten minutes after 12. 

Then on New Year's day my very active adventure-seeking son started off our family time with pulling me outside to sled in the snow.  We didn't have a sled but we made due with a snow shovel believe it or not.  He had a blastI didn't sled myself but i was the sled pusher.  My oldest daughter thought we were nuts.  

January flew by much quicker than I would have liked with us getting a total of about a foot and a half of snow, yuck.  Most of it is gone now as we've had some pretty decent "warm" days. It's already February now and Valentine's Day is right around the corner.  Don't forget to show your love some Valentine Love !!!

If you're looking for a good Valentine's Day read, make sure you pick up Be Mine, Valentine.  My story 'Love Takes the Cake' along with eleven other authors and their stories are sure to get you in the mood for Love !!!

PS:  on a side note, I have done a little reconstructive surgery on my blog A Passion for Romance.  Please stop by and say hello.  Also make sure you visit myself and many other authors at the new TMP Coven,  Fiction Witches where we will be sharing a different back list book every week.  I  also have a contest going on today and tomorrow  and details can be found  on my contest page, make sure to check it out!!!

Happy Reading

Why Romance Novels Matter !!

  Brought to you by Adam & Eve What do you say when someone asks if you enjoy reading romance novels? Do you answer with a loud and proud “yes,” or do you hedge, saying you read them, but just for fun, as if being a serious enthusiast is akin to being a pervert? Do you, in other words, give in to the idea that there’s something shameful about loving a good romance story? You’re not alone. The truth is, society has stacked the deck against those of us who love romance novels. There are still major misconceptions surrounding the genre, namely that it is a frivolous pastime enjoyed only by bored housewives. No other type of literature has endured the same level of malignant criticism or unfair categorization. The term “Harlequin romance,” which refers to one of the largest and oldest distributors of romance novels, has become shorthand for “trash” and “smut.” And all this hatred exists even while romance novels continue to be one of the fastest-growing and top-selling gen

Alpha favorite :)

Have you ever been asked what you like about Alpha Males?  Well I never had before but when I think about it, the Alpha Male is always the one that draws me in when I read a great book.    He's just got this unbelievable presence he exudes, one that makes you stop and take notice.   He makes me want to be the heroine just so I can have him :)  He doesn't give a sh** what others think of him and that makes him even more attractive.  He's always confident and sure about himself but even if he's got doubts, you'll never know about them.  He takes charge in every aspect of his life, dominates.  Of course the gorgeous and sexy part isn't a bad thing either.  So what exactly do you like about an Alpha male??    Well today i'd love for you to leave me a comment telling me what you like, what makes you pick the Alpha every time.  And, if you'd rather have the Beta, well tell me about that too!  Dont' forget to leave your email address in case you win!
