*squeals* I'm very excited about the publication of my first short story on July 5th! Omnific Publishing will release two summer anthologies, one sweet and one steamy, on 7-5-11. Check it out HERE. What's even better is that proceeds benefit the breast cancer research foundation Save the Ta-tas.
I can't think of a better organization to support given that breast cancer has affected my family. My mother is a breast cancer survivor. Doctors diagnosed her seventeen years ago, luckily catching the naughty cells early. She had a mastectomy and is doing so well now--I'm really proud of her.
My story Swim Recruit will be in the "Summer Breeze" Anthology along with other sweet Young Adult romances.
I'm a former college swimmer and I'm eager to share my first YA story, told from a first person point of view.
Not long after Abby Donahue’s family falls apart, she escapes on an airplane to Chicago for a recruiting trip. A talented high-school swimmer, Abby hopes t…

Now on to the featured author of the day: KASI ALEXANDER! Are you ready for some alternate romance? Is your mind open today? If so, read on.
I cyber-met Kasi through my publisher, Omnific, which released Becoming sage. I had the pleasure of reading the story and interviewing Kasi. Here's my review:
Jill has recently divorced. She’s depressed and tired of relationship dynamics in which both partners fight for dominance, neither knowing how to deliver what the other wants. Enter Jill’s friend Jessica, who is a submissive slave named sunni. sunni’s master, Rune, wants to invite Jill to be part of their threesome power dynamic. It’s a big risk for Jill to try out this novel experience, but then again she's been disappointed by traditional relationships. She joins the couple as Rune’s slave, learning a lot a…

What's the most unique or romantic marriage proposal you've ever heard?
As a romance author, I strive to find creative ways for my romantic leads to pop the question. An engagement is an important part of the plot and the relationship, and I want to make it special.
I just finished reading the fun and sexy romantic suspense novel Mr. Perfect by Linda Howard. The more Jaine and Sam insult each other, the more they fall in love. It makes sense that Sam's proposal isn't sweet and gooey.
Sam: "I love you Jaine Bright. Will you marry me?"
Jaine: "No way in hell!"
After more insults Jaine remembers she's had three failed engagements.
Jaine: "I don't do really well with engagements. Gives the guy too much time to think."
Sam: "I'm skipping the engagement part. We're not getting engaged; we'll just get married."
Jaine: "In that case, yes I'll marry you."
Ha ha! I love a proposal that fits the characters…
