You never stop learning..

I am always reading other author’s work. I feel we should support one another.

With that being said, I saw a suggested post on fb yesterday, read the blurb and decided I’d read the sample chapters. I noticed it said: Romance Suspense: BDSM. Well, I love romantic suspense. I didn’t know what BDSM stood for. That little voice told me I should look it up before reading, but I really liked what I’d read so far, so I thought, “I’ll find out while I’m reading.”

I did.

BDSM stands for: Bondage, Discipline, Sadism and Maschism.


Sadism and Masochism mean: sexual gratification from being physically or emotionally abused.

Needless to say, it got too deep and dark for this gal!

This is hibernating weather! (and a bit about my upcoming novel)

It’s cold, even way down here in the South! This is what I call “bear weather.” The only thing it’s good for is hibernating! 🙂

I’m getting close to the end of my current WIP (work in progress). If only Cassie and Max would finish telling me their story! I have an idea for a second, follow-up book. But I need, I must, finish this one first.

Magnolia Grove is the name of this WIP, and it is based in a fictional, small southern town. Cassie Long and Max Phillips are the main characters. Cassie is an author, as I am. But she is far better and more accomplished. She’s an international bestselling author. (I’m jealous!) haha  Max is a hunk, naturally. It is a romance, after all. He is also a businessman and owns the farm next to Cassie’s, which she inherits from her family.

I could, and most likely will, reveal more later. But, for now, that’s just a little taste of what’s to come.
