The Best Ways To Waste Time
Okay, so “writers block” is an inevitability in the life of every writer. Sometimes it’s short-lived, and sometimes it lasts for a while. I’m in a bit of a funk at the moment, so I thought I’d share some of the best ways I’ve discovered for wasting time this last month…

Facebook seems to be my go-to.

And of course wasting time with the Sunday comics: 



Hopefully you’ve enjoyed this brief respite from life, and are ready to get back to work. I am!

Best,

Lady Angelique Drummagan, a half-Scottish, half-French countess, has suffered much pain and betrayal in her past.

Dangerous, greedy enemies threaten her from all sides and she's in dire need of his protection.

Sir Lachlan MacGrath, known as Seducer of the Highlands, possesses a charming wickedness and canny wit which has earned him much popularity. After the king decrees that he wed the fiery hellion, Lachlan discovers there is one woman who can resist him—Angelique. Can he break through her icy fa├žade and melt her heart, or will the dark secrets lurking in her past not only cost them their future together, but their very lives?

My Brave Highlander

Battle-hardened warrior Dirk MacLerie isn't who everyone thinks he is. He's Dirk MacKay, heir apparent to the MacKay chiefdom and Dunnakeil Castle on the far north coast of Scotland. When he returns home after a long absence, will his clan know him and will the duplicitous enemy who tried to murder him twelve years ago kill him in truth this time?

Lady Isobel MacKenzie is a beautiful young widow betrothed to yet another Highland chief by her brother's order. But when her future brother-in-law accosts her and threatens to kill her, she is forced to flee into a Highland snowstorm. When she runs into a rugged and imposing man she thought dead, she wonders if he will turn her over to her enemy or take her to safety.

Dirk remembers the enchanting, dark-eyed Isobel from when he was a lad, but now she is bound to another man by legal contract—an important detail she would prefer to forget. She wishes to choose her own husband and has her sights set on Dirk. But he would never steal another man's bride… would he? The tantalizing lady fires up his passions, testing his willpower and honor at every turn, even as some of his own treacherous clansmen plot his downfall.

For a limited time, you can get a copy of my futuristic erotic romance Programmed To Please – the first book in The Tau Cetus Chronicles – free at any of your favorite retailers. This story is a HOLT Medallion merit award-winner!


Here’s the blurb:

Very human Tau Cetus police agent Jai Turner goes undercover as a Beautiful Dolls sex robot in order to bring down the planet's most notorious arms dealer, Marque Callex. The police have never been able to get close to Callex, and Jai’s assignment is to coax information out of Marque on his illicit dealings – information that will lead to his conviction.

Reclusive arms dealer Marque Callex only accepts an invitation from Beautiful Dolls because with his deadly line of work – and the dangerous secrets he’s keeping – he can't afford to let a real woman into his life.

Fun Facts - Bicycles!
Who knew that bicycles are celebrating their 200th anniversary this year?

This is a bicycle garage. Have you ever seen  one? Can you guess where this is located?

It's located in Amsterdam, and right over a canal. How cool is that? Of course the Dutch, with their flat country recovered from the sea, have taken biking to a new art. Here you see a fellow who's so confident on his bike that he can ride and text at the same time.

Today's bikes are a lot more stable than those of the 19th century, which caused Mark Twain to say, "Get a bicycle. You will not regret it, if you live."

After being improved several years later, women took to riding bikes. This enraged some men so much that students at Cambridge University hanged an effigy of a woman riding a bike.

Of course, the Wright brothers owned a bicycle shop. Thus, they had the tools and the expertise to experiment - and thus was the successful airplane birthed.

And here is my favorite photo of how a woman can be emancipated by a bicycle!

Here's more information on bicycling in Amsterdam.
