Happy Birthday, Brit Blaise!

brit blaiseOn this day in history, a special friend was born. I met her online, through my publisher, and instantly liked her. She was a snarky, sassy, spitfire of a broad who was always up for a dare.

We’d race each other through writing sprints and NaNoWriMos with the ‪#‎sbpcagematch‬.  See some of her tweets below.

cactus creek cowboys, brit blaise, cowboy fictionShe loved her family, adored her husband, and considered her friends family. You were either in or out with this lady. I liked that.

Then her battle with breast cancer began.
We rallied around her as she fought the good fight
And won.

When round 2 rolled around, she fought again but punch by punch, her glimmer began to fade.

We celebrate by celebrating her life and the body of work she’s created for her readers.

It’s hard to let go of friends like Brit Blaise, but even more difficult is living a life without stars that shine in it like she has for so many.  

Thank you for writing all those cowboys!

cactus creek, cowboys, brit blaiseHappy birthday, dear friend.

To all our readers: Brit’s fight was expensive and without a way to make direct donations, we would ask you to please buy her books.  Buy lots of her books and give them to your family & friends.  The royalties from sales will help Brit’s family pay for all the care she has received and continues to receive in hospice.

The Biotch Pinned me Down in Bed ALL Day…Her Name starts with C and ends with R

528Pre-cancer days…no one takes a picture thinking, “in a few months I’ll have cancer and watch myself age faster than I can comprehend.”

So many changes…so fast!

I have a relatively new change.  I can really empathize with Tina’s naps now. I used to wonder how someone can nap that often! Now I have her beat. I don’t get up when my husband leaves the house because I can’t wait to go back to sleep. By lunchtime, I’m considering if I want to get up or just wait for my next nap.  Today I waited…I wasn’t officially up until evening.

The really good thing about napping is I don’t have pain. The fabulous thing is that I’ve come up with fantastic book ideas, however, I’ll waste an hour trying to remember them and then forget them anyway.

I know…I need a pen and paper by the bed. rp_keepscore-287x300.jpgIt takes me forever to find anything by my bed. Knocking stuff off is always involved. I spend a good deal of my good time knocking stuff around and misplacing the stuff I need the most.

However, I haven’t given up! I finished editing a book today. And I’m ready for another book tomorrow.

What a Difference a Year Makes

????????????????????Last year I began self-publishing. There have been ups and downs, but some of the ups have been fabulous. And it giving me goal through this deadly disease. This Wednesday I’m the beginning the first book in a new series. It starts out slow in small town Ohio…without a single death, but lots of blood. The world’s being invaded by creature in a town whose population is dominated by rednecks and rebellious young adults.

Psychiatrist Amanda Montgomery never dreamed she’d enter the infamous Blood Club on the arm of a handsome detective to see a group on stage performing sex acts for a full house. And her adventure goes from strange to bizarre when she becomes a reluctant participant of the show. Amanda’s medical specialty is delusional patients who believe they’re vampires…little does she know!

As token vampire on the force, Detective Mark Philips’ position in the community and at work is already causing him no shortage of complications. With the vampire numbers growing disproportionately to the general population, a day of reckoning grows nearer with each passing second. Just when he thinks things can’t get worse, a sassy doctor and an old foe join forces to bring him to his knees.

Detective Philips needs to find a vampire-wanna-be assaulting visitors of the Blood Club. He doesn’t need the complications falling for the doc will bring and he especially doesn’t want an old lover adding drama to an already explosive situation.

Amanda’s dormant sexual desires aren’t just awakened, they’re roaring out of control. But when she discovers Mark’s ex is not only a vampire but a man, her new sexual exploits are some she’d never imagined. Can she handle the man-on-man vampire heat?
