Yep, Me Again

You probably have noticed I’ve been posting about ads lately. That’s part of my New Year’s resolution. I had decided to do more ads and less contests. No. An alien hasn’t taken over my body. After 21 years (first contest in 1994, skipped 5 years before 2nd one), this contest diva decided it was time to cut back. So I plan to enter only two or three. Though I will continue to support contests by judging them.

This one will be in the Limestone Sheriff’s Rodeo program book. If you live in northern Alabama and attend, be sure to look for it.

Defiance ad for Rodeo

And I changed up the one that will be in the Romance Writers of America’s program book. Appears to be quite a theme I have going here — program books and all. The assassins and mercenaries are a given. HA!

Fun Research

A couple months ago, I had some fun. I visited the Barber Motorsports Vintage Museum as part of my research for my next series. Here are a few pictures.  So cool.

What do you think?

My latest ad.  It will be placed in the RWA magazine/book/program for the conference in New York. So can’t wait! The trip will be so much fun. I’ve never been there. Yes. I will probably be one of those tourist craning my neck at the tall buildings, getting in everyone’s way.  HA!

Be sure to let me know what you think about the ad. If something negative (misspelling, etc.), let me know. I want it to be perfect.

Defiance and Dishonor adSadly, when it shows up in the magazine it will be in black and white. I checked that out, and it looks good, but not as good as color.

Hey, if you’re wondering, that’s Birmingham, Alabama USA in the background. I took the picture from a side road near my day job one morning.

By the way, CIRCLE OF DESIRE is still 99 cents. That one isn’t a novella. That’s a full book for a dirt cheap price. CIRCLE OF DANGER is $1.99 and it’s also a full book.
