I'm buying this TODAY!!!!

Pam Godwin is a friend of mine and a damn good author and beta reader!! I can't wait to read this one. I thought it wasn't out until Halloween - I know that's soon, but I found it's on Amazon now. Yippee!! 

DEAD OF EVE by Pam Goodwin

A virus devastates humanity. Few men survive. The rest are monsters. The women are dead, except Evie.

Through a quirk in her genetics, she survives. When her physiology begins to evolve, she must come to terms with what she is and accept her role in finding a cure.

The mutated hunt her. The men brutalize her…except three. Cryptic warrior, contrite lover, caring enemy; they are fiercely protective of the last living woman, but divided in their own agendas. Can they come together to protect the only hope for humanity?

Evie must survive.

I'm really easily distracted. Particularly when it comes to writing. I can only concentrate on one thing at a time - which is a nuisance when I've a few ideas I want to follow through on. More than a nuisance when the sun is shining and I'd like to swim and read and relax. I love going on holiday but I know I don't write as well when the weather is hot. I'm much more focused when it's cold outside.
I've temporarily given up on my Walmart story - yet again. I don't know why this one won't fly but until it feels right - it's back in limbo.
I need to write a story that follows up on two characters in 'Jumping in Puddles' - out in January with Loose-ID - but I'm not in the mood for that yet.
I need to write a little Fae story to go in an anthology with some friends - started that and ground to a halt. The problem is - can I write a 5,000 word short? I've done it before but that is very short.....
Plus I had an idea for a story like Strangers, started it, liked it,  but it's morphed into a MM instead of an MF.
I'm not going to mention the handful of others that I've begun and stopped for one reason or another.
So now I have a load of part-started stories on my laptop and I can't decide what to do next. I suspect until I'm back in the cold - and that's going to be very soon, I'm not going to be focused enough to concentrate on anything.
Ooh the sun is shining. I'm off outside.

Spookily early for halloween

My Paranormal series - The Trueblood books - they all stand alone and are only connected in that the main characters are siblings. But the last one does finish the series off so best not to read that first. 
The Consolation Prize has sold more than any other of my books - I don't think it's my best - it was my first ever attempt at a vampire story but I did get better - I hope!

For a lucky commentator - the choice of any of these ebooks!

The Consolation Prize

Chloe wins four days at a spa but arrives to find the other guests who have unusual eating habits don't come out in daylight, and who is that naked guy chained in the basement?


Falling For You

Every month when the moon is full, Jo has an uncontrollable urge to jump every man she sees but she runs from temptation only to find herself as dinner when she falls into a hole and lands on a vampire.

Lightning in a Bottle

Erin's fun, exciting and a bright flash of light in Felix's life, but there's a snag, she won't stop biting his neck.

The Misfits

Holly is a hopeless faerie whose uncooperative wings land her in the arms of a vampire and a werewolf 
but instead of running away, she doesn't want to leave.

Fight To Remember

A vampire trapped in a rocky grave, a girl who for the past eleven years can't remember who she is when she wakes and a werepuma bound to a demon and forced to fight in her deadly club - the world of three collides but for three to live, one of them must die.

Lies, damn lies and statistics

Brits are thought of as fairly straitlaced, stiff upper lip and all that. Until the arrival of 50 Shades which has shown us to be as obsessed with eroticism as the rest of the world, marital aids were confined to cups of tea and hot water bottles, but research has shown Brits lead the world in our interest in spanking. Whether that dates back to the outdated view of seeing corporal punishment as a way to build character, I don’t know, but I’m intrigued. (Not enough to try, husband, unless you want to volunteer?)
Apparently Brits also score highly in online searches for CFNM. (I’m not one of the searchers. I had no idea what that was.) It’s Clothed Female Naked Man sites where submissive men are ordered to strip by pretty women who then make fun of their tackle. How appealing does that sound? (Not to me, says husband) Women in New Zealand are top of the list for sexual partners in a lifetime at 20.4. I do wonder what the point 4 looks like. Austrian men are the most promiscuous with 29.3 partners over a lifetime. That’s a lot!
Sex in Thailand lasts the shortest at 10 minutes. (Must tell husband, he’ll feel so much better )
Longest in Brazil at 30 minutes. (Are you listening, husband?)
Biggest breasts in Australia. (No, we’re not emigrating, dear heart)
41% of French people have participated in an orgy. (France sounds appealing!! Sshh – don’t tell him I said that)
Worst lovers – worst at the top
Germany (too smelly)
England (too lazy)
Sweden (too quick)
Holland (too dominating)
America (too rough)
World's Best Lovers

Which goes to prove nothing at all! How many people do they ask when they do these surveys? How many lie? Though clearly those in Thailand haven’t learned how to lie!
I’m thinking of moving to France though – oh unless they’re lying too. Darn it.

Winnie does Dallas

Never been to Dallas - well only the airport and the outskirts but just went on the DART - their super efficient transport system that took us right into the heart of the city. Us meaning - me, husband and son's dog, Winnie - full name Winston Kennedy. We wandered the city streets not sure what we were looking for because American cities are NOTHING like British cities and then we realised where we were standing - the grassy knoll, the place Winnie's namesake was gunned down. Very poignant.

 Then we found the fantastic sculpture of the longhorn cattle - except were the cows really as big as that or was it Texan exaggeration? Winnie soon rounded them up. Miniature dachshund - aka - cow dog.

We endured a day of torrential rain, a 3.4 earthquake and having to share one bathroom and our bed with the dog - actually, the latter wasn't a hardship. Winnie is such a sweetie. Doesn't snore - unlike husband.
