Read the Romance, Save the Ta-tas

Mark your calendar – the Summer Lovin’ Anthologies are coming July 5th!

Check it out!

The Summer Lovin’ Anthologies are Omnific Publishing‘s way of sharing the love and giving back. Two volumes, thirteen stories, and a whole lot of romance will give readers lots to do this summer – and all proceeds will be donated to the Save the Ta-tas Foundation.

Do you like stories with walks on the beach, flowers, and sweet romance? Then the Summer Lovin’ Anthology: Summer Breeze is for you. Would you rather read about hot, sexy love that pushes the envelope? The Summer Lovin’ Anthology:Heat Wave will definitely light your fire. Or, try both, and get a sampling from a dozen authors.

My story, Concessions, will be featured in the Heat Wave edition:

Lindsey Colton leads a lonely life running the concession stand at a Las Vegas movie theater. When a dark, mysterious man ducks in one afternoon, Lindsey is introduced to a new world: one of vampires, princes, and fiery sex. Her seductive lover, Devon, has grand plans to steal her away, but only if she is willing to give up her humanity and he is willing to give up his future as king. Lindsey is more than eager to start anew with her immortal love…but the concessions Devon has to make could cost Lindsey her life.

No matter which you read, both of the Summer Lovin’ Anthologies pack a punch – as far as cancer is concerned. Save the Ta-tas funds research to fight the deadly disease. By purchasing one or both of the Anthologies, you’re joining that fight.

The anthologies will only be available for a very limited time, so set a reminder for July 5th to order yours, and kick cancer where it hurts!

Photo Friday: Wherever You Go, There You Are

You might remember, last week I posted a photo tour of my book, Whirlwind, at My Love Affair With Books. One picture I didn’t include is a shot of one of the dorms on the Cal Poly campus (the inspiration for Santa Lucia Polythechnic):

A Red Brick Dorm

The funny thing? This ISN’T Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo! This dorm, identical to the ones at the center of Cal Poly’s campus, is found on the San Jose State campus. And I’ve seen the same buildings on the Pomona campus as well.

Do you live near a college campus? Do you have buildings like these? I wonder how many of them there are out there…

BTW, the title of this post is a quote from an old movie. 5 points if you know which one! Happy Friday!

Daily Double on the Whirlwind Blog Tour

I can’t believe this is the last day of the Whirlwind Blog Tour! We’re going out with a bang – with not one, but two tour stops and giveaways today:

Happily Ever After – Reads is giving away a print copy of Whirlwind along with posting my discussion of how hard it is to keep up with the changing times. Contemporary writers face a real challenge trying to keep up with what’s hot today, especially when it comes to technology. You can also read Kristin’s review of Whirlwind HERE.

COME JOIN THE DISCUSSION AND ENTER TO WIN

Also, Cheeky Reads has reviewed Whirlwind and is giving away an electronic copy:

“What I enjoyed most about this book was the relationship between Melissa and her friends, as well as the one with Jason. I felt like Melissa’s inner monologue about her friendship with Mitch and her insecurities were nicely done and appreciated some well done, but not over the top, sexy scenes!”

CLICK HERE FOR THE FULL REVIEW AND TO ENTER

Come back TOMORROW for the LIVE CHAT  at 8:00pm EDT (5:00pm PDT), moderated by our host, Missie of The Unread Reader. Sign up for a free account at TalkShoe and either call in or type in your questions. No matter which way you choose, you’ll be able to hear my answers through your speakers.
