Hot Reads!

I'm very excited to be hosting two great authors: Gena Showalter and Jill Monroe. Gena's book (one of tons) The Nymph King has hit #32 on the NYT List - big Congrats! And I just read the first chapter of Hitting the Mark and let me tell you - hot hot and must buy!!

This is the first time I've ever hosted other authors and I think I'd like to start a little tradition... if Jill and Gena (and anyone else out there) don't mind, I'd like to pose a question. This blog is sort of a procrastination tool and I know that tons of writers procrastinate. So the question is, as an author, do you procrastinate? If not, how do you not procrastinate? If so, what's your favorite way to procrastinate!

Without further interruption, let me present:

Two great friends - Two February books!

This is the first time Gena Showalter and Jill Monroe
have books out at the same time!

Nymph King Hitting The Mark

For your paranormal taste, we have Valerian. Females young and old, beautiful and plain crave Valerian's touch. None can resist his blatant sensuality and potent allure…until he steals Shaye Holling from a Florida beach and holds her prisoner in his underwater kingdom.

And when you're ready to read something contemporary, there is Hitting The Mark. Danni's a woman with a little revenge on her mind. Romantic Times says Hitting The Mark is, "impossible to put down."

Carrie - I'm glad you asked this. I am a HUGE procrastinator. In fact, I'm pretty sure I drive Gena (my critique partner) crazy! There's something about that rush of adrenaline that a deadline is looming that really gets me to writing.

Of course my favorite way to procrastinate is to play on the Internet.

Usually the way I avoid procrastinating is by reporting my word count - usually to my critique partners.

AND - I just have to say I think Gena's latest book is just wonderful - all of them are great in fact!
