Things have been a trip and a half for me these last years. Lately, health issues really took my time away from blogging :) I've really enjoyed the author features, but I have to remember, this is about the whole walk-being a parent, a writer, and still blogging/marketing.
My boy, now four years old, is in the special program at school that will help him improve his speech :) He's a cute kid all the way around, and stubborn as all get out. :D We picked up a fun play area to build in our back yard... slide, swing, wall climbing, with a two story house you climb to the top of to get to the slide. It'll be a blast!
We finished the fence as well, so I know have a fenced in yard for him to play in! We've got a pool we picked up from craigslist (thanks mom!!) for free(she found it and is awesome!) and will have that as well. It's an above ground pool, but a long one! This summer is looking to be fun for our kids.
Our yards coming along. A lot better than my health is I'm afraid. But I'm starting again, doing like last year, yard work, and c25k to be starting again. I'm starting a month ahead of time so hopefully, will get farther and healthier faster.
I'd started roller derby in September, but then bled for months and months. I'm hoping (keep fingers and toes crossed) I can go back to it!! I'm going to go this weekend and see what they say. It would be a great way to keep in shape!
The big news is I'M RELEASING TWO ANTHOLOGIES WITH BREATHLESS PRESS TOMORROW! Crimson, a vampire antho, and Service, an antho with military related shorts! I'm so stinking excited and overwhelmed! Here's where the party's going to be! Commenting earns you entry to the grand prize! The more entries I get the more prizes I'll give away. The big prize is all six of my books from Breathless Press :) So come and join the fun and let me thrill you!

Somewhere on my sidebar is a link to Rick Sexed Up the Doc. A Naughty Nursery Rhyme. I hope you started your collection already, because they are still coming and hot as ever!! The latest by my sweet Dianne Hartsock.
Intriguing thought, isn't it? Taking a simple childhood rhyme and turning it into something sizzling? When I'd first heard that Naughty Nursery Rhymes were being written, I wasn’t sure what to think. Could it even be done?
Then I read my first one. Heaven help me! It was one of the hottest things I'd ever read, with shifters and sexy bodies and crazy hot love scenes.
So then I felt challenged. If I were to write a Naughty Nursery Rhyme, which one would I use? I thought instantly of Wee Willie Winkie, one of my favorites.
Wee Willie Winkie runs through the town,
Up stairs and down stairs in his night-gown,
Tapping at the window, crying at the lock,
Are the children in their bed, for it's past ten o'clock?
All I could picture was a naughty little boy with an impish grin and a spark of mischief in his eyes. And a nightgown? Made me think of the turn of the century, 1880's.
And that's how my sweet William came to me. A man slightly shorter than average height (hence the name), a mop of blond curls, boyish good looks, with a wicked smile that brought men to their knees. As for him running around in his nightgown crying at the lock, etc.? One night of inebriation and looking for his lover takes care of those lines!
Then of course Willie needed a beautiful, passionate lover to save him from his decadent though very enjoyable ways. Fredrick walks in and steals his heart, but is love enough to keep William happy, or will he go back to his wild bachelor ways?
WEE WILLIE WINKIE
For the past three years William Wilkerson has led the life of the privileged rich. Head of his father’s shipping business, Willie indulges in the pleasures of Boston’s fine young men to his heart’s content. That is, until he meets Fredrick,, the one man who has captured his heart , again.
As his former tutor, Fredrick has been declared off limits by William’s father. Fredrick also believes he's beneath the attention of Wilkerson’s heir. Willie disagrees, but is he willing to throw away rank and privilege for the man he loves?
Fredrick held up his glass and stared at the candle's flame through the amber liquid. He took a sip, savored the rich, biting taste on his tongue. He welcomed the burn down his throat. This was the very last drink he could afford, and he had to make it last.
A giggle erupted from the booth in the corner, the one whose curtains were drawn against curious eyes. A smile tugged at Fredrick's lips despite the dire state of his wallet. The laugh had been carefree, joyous, naughty. Fredrick shifted on the cushioned bench. Only a few straggling customers remained in the dining room. He wondered if any of them would notice if he shifted his cramped cock as it throbbed in sympathy with the bright laughter.
Rather than risk it, he watched the fruit vender outside the window beguile a customer. Another giggle and stifled moan swiveled his attention back to the corner. A silk-clad foot and slim calf peeked beneath the curtain. He grinned even as the delectable sight emphasized his own loneliness. It had been far too long since he'd had someone in his bed.
"Excuse me. Sir?"
Fredrick looked up, distracted from his memory of lush lips and white skin and wide, hazel eyes, and blinked at the stout innkeeper at his elbow. "Yes?"
A frown fleeted across the man's homely face at another bout of laughter from the corner. "If they're disturbing you, I can have Wee Willie take his guest upstairs. Excuse me, I mean Mister Wilkerson." The man broke off, flustered by the slip of the tongue.
Fredrick's heart leaped on hearing the name mentioned. Is William really here? How could that be? The innkeeper coughed, and Fredrick frowned at the intrusion into his thoughts. The man was so damned serious about such a minor indiscretion. "They're no bother. In fact, I'm almost done anyway." He lifted his nearly empty glass. Hearing a shout, they looked over in time to see a young man tumble through the curtains onto the floor. Fredrick caught a glimpse of red hair and an embarrassed cheek before the gentleman crammed a hat on his head and strode passed them, face averted. The innkeeper shrugged and followed, likely to be sure he paid for his drinks.
Fredrick stared at the silk-clad foot still protruding from the parted curtains. He loosened his hold on his glass but had no way to stop the wild hammering of his heart. Before he lost his courage, he stood and swallowed the last of his brandy, then walked the short distance to the booth.
A grin tugged the corner of his mouth at his eagerness. It had been three years, after all, and they'd parted in anger. Would William acknowledge him? His hand trembled as he drew aside the heavy curtain and allowed his gaze to travel up the silky hose to bright blue trousers. Blood heated his face when he found the laces undone at the waist and the silk shirt open to expose white skin and rosebud nipples.
A sigh brought his gaze up to the pretty face that stirred his dreams. Rich brown curls surrounded lovely hazel eyes and full, pouting lips. He groaned when a delighted smile revealed the even, white teeth that had nipped his collarbone on more than one glorious occasion. "Freddie, is it you?"
