What's New?

So, what's new with you?

Since my last post I have sold another novella, Power Play has been released and I finished edits on another novella and sent that one off.

Lately I've been writing a lot. At least between 2000-3000 words per day, and well today I crashed. I'm suffering from the flu, that wonderful type when you have a fever and ache all over. Great!


I think it's time to re-vamp this blog. I'm not liking the dark sinister look it has... Mmmmmmm!

Links to buy Power Play: Amazon  Evernight

Another Review

This review is from Bitten by Paranormal Romance:

I really enjoyed this novella from beginning to end. I liked how Vivian Kees brings this short story together with such good details when starting from scratch with no back story. The main characters, widow Eugenia and her unlikely love interest Cal are great for each other.

In the beginning we find out Eugenia has lost everything that she has worked so hard for thanks to her deceased husband and his gambling ways. Now she is at the mercy of the man who is the new owner of her home, Mr. Hawthorne. As the time passes, Eugenia has to decide whether she is willing to do what it takes to keep her life as it is and never go back to where she came from. Which means she might have to agree to Cal's indecent proposal. It was delicious to read how Cal is affected by just the sight of Eugenia and how he behaved at there first meeting. I definitely wasn't expecting that!! Hot! My favorite thing about romance Novellas are that they get right into the relationship of the couple and I was so excited Vivian Kees didn't disappoint! Good Job!!

I only wish it would have been longer. I can't wait to read a full length book from the author.

A New Year

It's hard to believe that it's 2011. When I think back to how the past year has flown by, it amazes me.

Last year I entered Harlequin's New Voices Contest. It was a contest to find exactly that, new authors for their many lines.

I didn't place in the top three, but I and a few others did get a mention once the contest ended along with an email to further submit three chapters direct to the editors.

After much preening on my sub, I sent it and held my breath. To me in romance, Harlequin is gold. To have them as my publisher would be a dream come true.

Today I got an email from them. My submission is being looked at and I also was given a reference number to use with any further communication. Am I one step closer? Who knows, but it was a nice feeling not to get that standard no thanks.

I guess all I can do is sit and wait. And how was your day? :)
