The wonderful writers who blog at Wonkomance decided to start a video podcast, and I was their first guest. You can see the replay here. It’s about an hour long, and includes a really well-thought out Q&A, some talk about hair, and me reading from a very safe-for-work portion of Uncommon Passion.
In other news, Afternoon Delight, my first Intermix release with Berkley will be out in September, 2014, just four short months away! This story revisits Lt. Tim Cannon of the FDNY EMS division (first featured in Breath on Embers). One gorgeous spring afternoon he meets Sarah, a new transplant to NYC, who’s opening a food truck with a friend. What starts off as a sexy competition turns complicated and emotional…you know, as these things do. I had a great time writing this story, and I’m so excited it will be available so quickly The book is connected to three more upcoming releases I’m feverishly writing. I hope to be able to show off the covers for this book and the others in the series very soon!
In the meantime, happy reading and a very happy spring to all of you in the Northern Hemisphere!
