Pamper Me: Coming Soon from Marie Rochelle

“Excuse me. Can I talk to you for a few minutes?” a rich voice asked, cutting through her thoughts as Nicey made her way towards her parked car.
Gasping, she spun around and stared up into the bluest eyes she had ever seen in her life. The man behind her was absolutely gorgeous. She couldn’t help but to look away from his eyes to get a better look at his body. His massive shoulders filled out the black coat he was wearing and it stopped right past his knees. He looked very powerful, with his wide chest and muscular build.
Nicey dragged her eyes away from his physique back to his face. The set of his chin suggested a hidden stubborn streak while his lips were firm and sensual. They made her wonder if he was a good kisser. Would he know how to use those lips on her?
She slowly continued her appraisal of him and realized that his blond hair was a stark contrast to his naturally tanned skin. There was no doubt about it even in a crowd of men, his presence was stand out and make the others fall into the background.
“Do I know you?” she asked, taking a step back closer to her car. What in the hell was wrong with her staring at a stranger like that? She didn’t get an immediate sense of danger begin in his presence but a woman never knew nowadays.
“No, you don’t,” he smiled displaying a roll of perfect white teeth, “and that’s why I stopped you.”
Coming Soon from www.redrosepublishing.com

Blurb and Excerpt for Carrington's Fury

Coming Soon to Red Rose Publishing: Carrington's Fury.


Carrington Duncan is a woman on a mission.
One that burns within her very soul. Brought up by the Reiver that raised her since she was two; she is a creature taught how to fight, and to kill by the man that loved her like his own child. No matter what the cost, Carrington will never forget the faces of the ones she loved, and lost.
Sworn to destroy the race that tried to wipe her village off the face of the earth, she has one simple goal in mind…..to destroy them first.
If revenge is a dish best served cold, then get ready for hell to freeze over.
Is there anything that can tame Carrington's fury?

Deep in the heart of New Orleans Carrington found her quarry, well, rather they found her. Three male Ruslics had trailed her at a safe distant, their intent to take her unaware.
The hair on the back of Carrington neck bristled and her nose twitched as the faint smell of musk drifted to her on the gentle breeze. With a wrinkle of her pert little nose, she slipped down a side street into the deeper shadows, leaning against a wall as she waited to see if they would follow. Sure as shit they did.
Shaking her head at their stupidity, she mused that it must be their sexual drive that did all the thinking. Not enough juice to run two brains.
The males hurried down the side street after her, smiling as two little boys about to get a treat for good behavior.
"Are you sure she came this way?" the one with the light brown hair asked his companion.
"Yes, I'm sure she came this way." His companion answered, running a hand through his dark blonde hair.
Carrington arched a black brow as the males talked to one another.
"Then where is she?" the one with the light brown hair asked.
"How the hell should I know? She couldn't be far. After all, she's only a human and female at that." The blonde one laughed.
"Don't let the Queen hear you say that, or she'll be doing the laughing." His friend retorted.
The blonde flinched inwardly at the mention of their queen.
"Uh, let's forget I said that. I'd like to keep my head."
Still in the shadows, Carrington rolled her eyes. Men could be such babies and it did not matter what race they were. She shook her head again before she stepped out into the light of the full moon. "Looking for me gentlemen?" she asked.

A Few More Hours in the Night PULL-EASE!!!!

Hey Everyone,
I think that I am still sleeping....well partially. I am now sitting through a Political Media Class that is putting me back to sleep but there's nothing I can do about it. As I try to wake up my numb brain, I want to tell you about a few things. November 15 look out for new Red Rose Releases! Visit the website to see what's coming!

I spent half my night in a class and part of the rest of the night helping a friend with a paper on fallen media mogul Conrad Black. It seems he started on his ways to breaking the law real early but *shrugs* who knows? Then I watched Canadian Air Farce (The Canadian version of SNL or Mad TV I guess but still really funny) I couldn't help it. I LOVE that show (I LOVE acting). Finally at about 4:30 AM I finally snuggle beneath the covers (it's freezing here already and it's not even December)and TRIED to fall asleep. Eventually, the last time I glanced at the clock, at 6AM, fell asleep. In no time at all, the stupid alarm clock was blaring!!! I hate that stupid thing! I wanted to hurl it through the window and take great satisfaction in watching it smash to a million tiny little pieces *pants for air and grin evily*

Or, those stupid half drunken jerks that goes to university to get wasted and make noise beneath your window late at nights...*sigh* I need to breath....

As for me, I have a few RRP releases coming soon! Red Rose Has been nominated for some REC awards as well as the authors! So please visit the REC and vote for us! Oh I forgot, thank you to every who has voted and who has nominated us. It's great!

Please remember Red Rose's Speciality line...Desert Rose. We are still seeking submissions.

Anyways, I need to go back to re-numb my brain on how commercials are out there brainwashing us...

Until Next Time,
Rainy Days and Moonlit Kisses

How about some more hours in the day...pretty please

My name is Jane Beckenham (www.janebeckenham.com) and I'm an author. I write historical and contemporary romances. But you know, I've think i've finally figured it out. There is definitely not enough hours in the day. Take today, for instance. Okay, up at 6.30 off to the gym, home, minimal housework, and then I think. Yay, time to write. I get into gear, only to have the dog interrupt me, then it's 9am and my writing students arrive.
Thinking that once they are gone I can WRITE SOME MORE... but no siree, that wasn't about to happen. Family stuff interrupted. Now I love my family, would drop anything for them...and did. My writing. Then it was back home, and my part time employer called... could you, pretty please help us out. How could I say no? Yep, you got it. I didn't, and so there I am working my cute little but off (read that as spreading bigish butt, though cute sounds kinda nice!) and where is MY WRITING. Gone, baby. Nowhere to be seen. My hero and heroine are waiting for me, crying out for me to get them together, give them eternal happiness, albeit with a few bumps along the way. Right now, they're stuck on the page...and in the snow storm from hell, but heck, they've got each other and love, what more could they ask for?
A few more hours in the day, I hear you say! Yes please, about another 5 would be nice, but then, I guess there's never enough time! So, i'll have to wait until another day.

Happy writing and reading everyone.

The Writing Life

I love creating characters that are memorable, hot love scenes that make you squirm in your chair and a hero you'd love to play with. Hopefully, my stories will touch the lives of those who read my work. Make them laugh or feel better because of the universal truth of romance. When a reader tells me how much they loved one of my stories, I know I'm doing what I'm supposed to.

This is the beauty of writing.

The frustration comes from writing slow, from distractions and family.
To cure my slow writing speed, I started by joining the Alison Kent Challenge-Sweating with Sven. It helped. It also prepared me for NaNo (National Novel Writing Month). This is my first NaNo and even though I'm way behind on word count, I'm still writing faster than I was before.

I have so many stories I want to write and I'm aggravated I can't get them done faster. So I quite complaining and tried to do something about the problem.

I'm one of those writers who works on more than one project at a time. It's always helped when I'm stuck at a certain point. There are drawbacks to working this way, it works for me.

My dh whines about the money I'm not making and why is my butt in the chair in front of the computer. Well duh, a book doesn't write itself and when it's done you have to edit. (I'm forever grateful that man doesn't read my writing.)

I've wanted to write books from the time I was twelve. I joined RWA (Romance Writers of America) in 1994 and didn't see my first short romance published until July 2006. My point is, don't give up. Learn the craft of writing before you submit. Point of view, show don't tell, plotting, transitions. You want to submit your best work to a publisher.

The writing life is one I wouldn't trade for anything.

Things we do for our pets.

As you all know I had to take my dog into the vet on Wedsday. Well the vet gave him these honking big butt pills to take, you'd think it would be easy well people think again. It's a pain in the bloody arse. I mean my goddesses they eat worst things then this antibiotic that he's getting for that matter they roll in things that are even worst then this, but do you think he'd take it with out a problem OH HELL NO! he's got to fight me every step of the way.
I've tried smashing it and rolling it in ham, I've even forced his mouth open to pop it down his throat. ( That I DO NOT like doing makes me feel awful) Then he give's me the sad puppy dog look, like why are you being mean to me! And that just makes me feel like I'm an inch tall. *sighs* The things we do for our pets and they give us that one sad look and we feel like the meanest persons in the world cause we're just trying to make them feel better in the end.
But in the end I well give him is med and fight the good fight of makeing him better.

My First Time

I will always remember my first time – the nerves, the anxiety, worried about approval, performance, and success.

But hey, it’s just a Blog, right?

I wanted to post here so that I could encourage others to write, not to promote my books or myself. I wanted to write for a long time. I always felt that I could write. I felt I was smart, educated and could tell a story. I got screwed up for awhile thinking I had to be Roth or Ford and had to write the Great American Novel, but eventually the need to write overtook my self doubts. So, I wrote.

I am not finished with my journey. I am published by RedRosePublishing.com, but I am not a man in full yet. I am closer to my ideal by having written, by having been accepted for publication, by having gone through the editing process, by having gone through the process of cover art and by having been, finally, published. I hope to be published in print, to quit my day job and spend my days signing books and have my calendar full of speaking engagements, dispensing bits of wisdom as a sage with the respect of aspiring writers and the writing and publishing community. Reality tells me, “ain’t gonna happen.”

And, why not? Because that is not fifteen seconds of fame. That is fifteen years of fame and most likely, it isn’t in the cards for me. It is the Holy Grail. What right do I have to expect that?

In the dream, I miss the point. Write. Put words on the page. Produce prose. These are things that I have to do. Not for publication, but in the words of Dillard, “because I have to.”

Jack London addressed the two routes to publication. One route involved writing short stories for publication and developing publishing credits. A track record, if you will. The other route involved writing 2,000 words per day of a novel 6 days a week. At the end of three months, you would have a novel. At the end of a year, you would have written four novels. At the end of five years, 20 novels. Most likely, 19 of them would have been rejected, but you would have served an apprenticeship that would make you worthy of publication.

The world has changed. London recommended the second route. It isn’t valid anymore. Write, but write for publication. The validation of your efforts provides motivation to keep writing. We all need validation. We all need to keep writing.

Feel free to comment here, or e-mail me, SpikeFremont@aol.com. But write!
