Goin’ Free! And the Birth of a Trilogy…

For three days, Friday, August 17th- Sunday, August 19th, my erotic short story, “James” will be FREE on

“James” holds a bit of a special place in my heart, since it was the first erotica I wrote…. Since then, I’ve written five erotic short stories, as well as two erotic poems, and have complied them into a collection called “Wanting”.  And while writing (and publishing) my erotica has always made me uncomfortable, still, I continue on, because it makes me uncomfortable, and forces me out of my natural genre, and I’m able to push myself as a writer, and see exactly how far I am able to go.  So be a sweet-heart, and click click click this Friday, Saturday and Sunday…. Really, all I’m asking for is a few moments of your time to go to and get my erotic short story for free…. You can’t beat that deal, even if you tried.  Click here to get “James” FREE this weekend and help me hit my goal of #1 in the erotica genre on’s bestseller’s list.

And in other news: Last Thursday, I published my fifth book, “My Beautiful Jewel, Book One of the Miracles Trilogy”.  “My Beautiful Jewel” was actually written in 2004, and is taken from my journal when I was pregnant with my daughter, Amethyst.  If you’ve read me, either in book or blog form, you know the story: I was diagnosed as infertile, but some how, against every possible odd that could have been stacked against me, I’ve been blessed with three miracles: my beautiful children.  “My Beautiful Jewel” is, like I said, about my pregnancy with my oldest daughter Amethyst, but is the first book in a set of three.  Book two will be about my attempts to conceive my second child as well as my pregnancy with my daughter Autumn, and book three will be about my pregnancy with my son Benjamin, and how I came to the decision to have a partial hysterectomy at the very young age of thirty-three.  You see, every day, no matter how bad my day is, no matter how big of a mess my children make, or how many loads of laundry I have to slog through, or how exhausted I am, there is one thing I do: and that is say a prayer of thanks for being so very blessed with three amazing, beautiful, and gloriously healthy children who steal my heart every time they smile at me.  I do not forget for one moment how incredibly lucky I am to have my three children.  So these books are essentially love letters to them, so that years from now, they can read over them, and truly know what Mommy was thinking when they were busy kicking my internal organs in alphabetical order and making me barf non-stop.  One bonus of writing “My Beautiful Jewel” was re-reading my pregnancy journal, and one hilarious bonus was remembering how anal-retentive I used to be in regards to organizing everything.  It’s amazing how much motherhood has changed me, all for the positive.  To buy “My Beautiful Jewel”, click here or click here.


Lots of love, huggles, and happy reading!
