Musical Inspiration for A Santini in Love

Before you know it, A Santini in Love will A Santini in Lovebe here! I am getting so excited for this release. I really enjoyed writing Madison and Dante and their music was at times dark and other times romantic. Dante, like many of the Santinis, is a romantic. It is hard to think of a Santini man who isn’t. And one of the things I loved about him was that from the moment they meet up again, he treats her as an equal. He wants to protect her, but he also understands that her condition doesn’t make her weak.

So, onto the music.

These books are different from the upcoming A Santini in Love in that they are novellas (less than 40K) and they are the start of a long series I hope to keep writing for a very long time. If you have not had a chance to try the books out, or if you missed one or two, make sure to pick them up now at the low price of 2.99 for FIVE books. It is the price of just one, so it is definitely a good deal. November 15th, the bundle will go up to 5.99, so make sure you get them now for this limited time offer.


And so it has come to this…

October 2, 2014

I have talked recently on Facebook about my issues. Normally, I would keep it a little more private, but it is really spilling over into my professional life so I feel I need to address it.

I have dealt with back problems for years. Finally, FINALLY, I had an MRI. The results were alarming enough that the doctor’s office called me on a holiday weekend on Saturday night. I have Degenerative Disc Disease–which I knew about–and now have Spinal Stenosis. It is causing problems with the nerves in my back and I now have issues with numbness in my feet, legs, arms, and hands. The PT they had me in before they did the MRI started a downward spiral for me and I have not returned completely.

What does this mean for you the reader? Sorry to say, there will be fewer books. I will not put a book up for preorder until the rough is finished which means there will be less notice for the readers. Also, other things are going to be put on hold. Only for Him is on the back burner. I want to have the last part finished before I release the fourth part, so you aren’t waiting a long time again, and I just don’t have it in me to finish it right now. Another thing on hold is the Harmless Shorts. As before, I have been having people leave nasty reviews complaining they are SHORT. Although I say they are SHORT and that they are SHORT STORIES, people seem to think I shouldn’t have released them for sale. The emails and the nastiness from people just don’t make it worth it.  Stress raises my pain level and dealing with that has made it not worth it. Since very few people have left reviews who actually like the books, it doesn’t counter the bad reviews so I can’t do much about that. It is what I have told readers before: If you love a series, you need to support it with reviews somewhere.

I will also not be online that much. I am either going to go through treatment or surgery, or treatment, then surgery. Either with, I have to be nice to my back. I can’t hang out online that much and write. I can do one or the other and I am pretty sure  readers will vote for books, lol.

Email response time will be greatly hindered during this time. There are days  I get a little overwhelmed and just have to shut down. So, it might be awhile before I answer emails, sometimes up to a week.

This isn’t all negative though. First, thank you everyone for your kind words for A Little Harmless Secret and for supporting me always! This is kind of good news though because this means we can at least come up with a solution and make it easier for me to get back to making appearances and spending more time with readers.

Thank you for understanding.

That Voice

October 1, 2014

Then, Dante heard that voice. She was laughing as she said, “I don’t know about you, but I better get at least two good filets out of that bunch.”

Santini Book 6It was the voice he hated, the one that had haunted his time at Annapolis. She had always been a pain in the ass, besting him in everything except the physical challenges. And she had not been that far behind him.
