What pastime can be sexy, thrilling, heart wrenching and heartwarming…and cheap or free?
Check out these book suggestions from this premier publisher…
I’m very excited to report that Ties That Bind will be released next week by Boroughs Publishing Group. This is the third book in my 101 Nights Romantisodes, a series of romantic suspense stories about Amani and Jason. They’re newlyweds from two very different worlds. She’s a genie; he’s a scientist. Together, they have to figure out how to save her world and live in their own…a New Jersey suburban neighborhood, where local barbecues, nosy neighbors, and cul-de-sac relationships mix with international political intrigue. Please check it out! I’ve written the story so that you can jump right in with this episode to capture the thrills and chills. Or you can start now with the first two books, To Have and To Hold and Reluctant Rapture, and catch up to Amani’s and Jason’s adventures. I’ll keep you posted on the release date for Ties That Bind.
Thanks for tuning in, you guys!
Library Journal wrote that The Genie Smolders has “authenticity and depth.” Find out for yourself. You can download the novel today to your ereader.
Meanwhile, Zubis is appearing in multiple social media sites this weekend. He must have had a booster shot. Catch a ride with him.
Thanks for reading!
I’m working on the next book in the 101 Nights series.
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.
Seems WordPress does a really cool annual report for its bloggers, which I only just discovered. What I like about this is that it tells me what topics were the most popular. Much as I would like the posts about my books for sale to have knocked your socks off, it turns out that folks like facts about the jinn. Me, too. So that’s a good thing. Rest assured I will have more posts this year about the jinn, where and how they live, and how they became a myth….because we all know they’re real ;)
Here’s an excerpt:
The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 12,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 4 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
No, this wasn’t meant to be a post about the popular Grease song. But once I got the title of the post in my head, I kept seeing Olivia Newtown-John in spraypaint-tight pants and big hair singin’ and smokin’. I don’t know about you, but I remember being so disappointed by this story. Disappointed that she caved to the pressure to be different in order to get the guy…. I thought she was cool the way she was. Nevertheless, I’ve got a story for you about a woman who knows who she is and isn’t about to change for anyone. Check out my Facebook post about it… While you’re there, give my FB page a Like, if you like.
A great post for anyone who has a book to promote…

My friend, Tina Gerow, posted this on Facebook the other day. It brought up an important factor of author promotion: The Social Media Scam Artists.
FB just told me that my Cover Reveal photo for Sleeping With Shadows I reposted this morning on my Tina Gerow/Cassie Ryan page is doing better than 95% of my other posts on my author page and would I like to pay to Boost it.
Uh, let me see…NO. What I would LIKE you to do is to actually freaking show my posts to everyone who liked my page. I shouldn’t NEED to Boost it since when you register for FB it says it’s free and always will be. Lying ass bitches!! Oh, sorry- was that in my outdoor voice?
Sigh…now after my FB rant about bugging us to boost our posts, now I’m getting spammed from people/groups offering to promote my stuff…

What are the chances that the kid you liked, liked you back? And what if you discover that, despite time and complications, a crush could morph into true love. Maggie has that chance. But she also has one of those major complications. The most major type of major… Read Woven on page 103 of BTS Book Reviews magazine to find out if the threads of our lives can actually form a nice, cozy blanket for us when life is at its coldest.
