Second life for the little guys

I mentioned in my last post that my publisher is making all of the short stories available from previously published anthologies, which includes all of my short stories, at Coffee Time Romance.

The Power of Love was republished earlier this year. The book in which it came from, Holiday in the Heart, is still available from Amazon and other online booksellers.

When Elaine discovers she was pregnant, she hesitates telling her husband, Ethan. They were newlyweds and wanted to wait until they were ready to start a family. Ethan surprised her by accepting early parenthood, embracing the idea more fully than either of them expected. But when they receive bad news after a prenatal exam, both must face that their charmed lives were about to come crashing down around them.

Do Christmas wishes really come true? Elaine would stake her life on it!

Tutti-Frutti Blues is now available at Coffee Time Romance. This story is still available in the No Law Against Love anthology, which is available from Amazon and other online booksellers.

Town therapist Maisie Daniels is having a bad day. A failed alarm clock makes her late for work, she's locked herself out of her house and worse, she's half way across town when she realizes she's wearing her bunny slippers. A double scoop of tutti-frutti ice cream is just the ticket to boost her mood.

When Sergeant Jake Hennessey spots a woman in bunny slippers muttering to herself in the park, he wonders if she's one of the local eccentrics. When she steps from the ice cream parlor with her double dip in hand, Jake decides not to cite her for eating ice cream on the street, a recent ban, but invites her to dinner instead.

When Jake arrives at the restaurant and sees Maisie in her bunny slippers, he knows instantly that he could love her.
Dude Looks Like a Lady is also now available at Coffee Time Romance. This story is still available in the No Law Against Love anthology, which is available from Amazon and other online booksellers.

Pamela Howard can't believe what she let her friend Maisie talk her into - a charity costume contest where she's made to dress as King Louis XVI. Her partner, dressed as Queen Marie Antoinette, reminds her of a man she's spent five long years trying to forget.

Hank Delacroix is ready to throttle his friend Jake. Hank is a great clown around his 49er teammates, but six-inch heels and a poodle on his head are a bit much. He has to be the tallest drag queen in the state. When he meets his Louis partner, he can't keep memories of the only woman he ever loved from waking in his mind.

When Hank realizes Louis is his ex-fiance, he has to find a way to make her stop running away from him so he can finally apologize.

No word yet on when Moondance will be available as a standalone story, but it's still available in the original anthology, Blue Moon Enchantment, which can be bought through Amazon or other online bookseller.

Thanks for your support and for reading what I write. I hope you enjoy it. Watch this space for news on A Piece of My Heart.

Some good news to share...

I've signed the contract with Highland Press for my novel A Piece of My Heart. It will be released sometime in 2009. As soon as I have a cover and release date I'll be sure to post them here. For now, I'm thrilled to see one of my novels make publication AND in print no less. Yay! You can click the above link to take a peak of this story.

Also, my short stories are being rereleased as stand-alone stories through Coffee Time Romance. Currently, The Power of Love is available. This story was part of the Holiday in the Heart anthology, published in December 2006, and still available through

The other short stories will be available at Coffee Time Romance shortly. Those stories include Tutti-Frutti Blues, Dude Looks Like A Lady and Moondance. As soon as those stories are available, I'll post an update. These stories are also still available through Amazon...Tutti-Frutti and Dude are in the No Law Against Love anthology and Moondance is in the Blue Moon Enchantment anthology.

Things are cruising along here. I'm working on a new story project and waiting for edits on A Piece of My Heart. Otherwise, it's life as usual here...putting up with rain and trying to keep the leprechauns under control! ;-)

As always, I love hearing from readers, so drop me a note from my contact page.

Thanks for reading.
