Where'd It Go?

No, you're not imagining things. My blog is currently gone - or at least all the posts in it are. Thanks to the news that a fellow author has been sued by a photographer for using one of his pictures in a blog post, I've pulled all my posts so I can a) determine if there are any photos without proper permission or attribution, and b) fix them if necessary.

There's a lot on my blog that's perfectly fine - cover art, photos shared with me by the subject or photographer, stuff I have license to use - but there's other photos I'm just not sure. Sadly, one of the main items that's sure to go is the Inspiration Friday posts, at least in the format they've previously taken.

But most of the 731 posts will be back, in some form or another. If you subscribe to my blog and get email notifications that something new has posted, you might want to turn off that function for a while as the posts are re-published. And it could take a while, since I'm currently in the middle of a move AND have a book due at the end of August.

Sorry for the inconvenience, and I hope you'll stop by once the blog is up and running again!

Book BIN Tuesday - Forever Men

Walls crumble when you build a forever love.

As a couple, the deep, sensual connection between Desi and Alec is imaginative and limitless, even though Desi’s fear that love is transient keeps her from telling her man how she feels. Fun-loving Alec, who lost his parents in a tragic accident, has found that kind of forever love again. He’ll do whatever it takes to keep it, including giving Desi the one thing he lacks—a partner with a serious side.

With their fledgling construction company headed for the skids if they don’t finish the job on time, Desi and Alec are frantic to catch up. Enter Alec’s friend, Matt, a man haunted by the “dull and unimaginative” label his ex-fiancĂ© pinned on him.

Working side by side, a thirst grows that seems unquenchable and each must come to terms with old hurts in order to consider possibilities never before imagined.

This is Lace Daltyn's first erotic novella, and it looks hot, doesn't it? Why not head on over and Buy It Now?

Book BIN Tuesday - Moonshell Beach

He no longer believed in anything.

But she believed in him.

J.T. Douchett has returned home to shut out the world and escape the memories from his final mission as a Marine that haunt him. When he reluctantly agrees to provide security for a town event, the last thing he expects is to experience unbidden feelings for Irish movie star Mary Joyce.

Mary has surprised everyone—including herself—by accepting an invitation to a film festival in Shelter Bay. The Oregon coastal town immediately charms her, and an even larger surprise is encountering the stoic man who could be everything she's dreamed of.

As J.T. struggles to keep Mary at arm’s length, Mary reminds herself that she’s never been attracted to the strong, silent type. And having known so much sorrow, he’s wary of getting close to anyone. But in Shelter Bay, even the most strongly guarded heart is no match for love.

I adore JoAnn Ross's books, and am SO excited she's got a new one out today! I think it's the perfect opportunity to bop on over and buy it now.

Summer Movies - What Are You Excited to See?

I'm so far behind in my movie viewing, it isn't even funny. But I'd like to change that, and see at least a few flicks during the summer blockbuster season. So my question is - what movie are you looking forward to seeing? Or maybe more specifically, what movies should *I* be excited about? What's coming up that really should be seen on the big screen?

Help a girl out! :)
