Dirigibles Are Forever New Release Celebration & Contest!

I am so very, very excited to celebrate the release of Dirigibles Are Forever, my super-sexy Christmas novella set in an alternative Victorian London, filled with adventure, secrets and fun, and a dash of James Bond. The USA Today HEA Blog has called it a “MUST-READ Romance”.

I love this story! It was a blast to write it and Holly and Jack have a special place in my heart. Both of them face difficult decisions and Holly is working hard to find her place in the world. It is not the Victorian London you are used to, but a London where Her Majesty Queen Victoria passed the Equal Rights Act and women can do whatever they want…including being Aether Traffic Controllers;). But Holly no longer believes it is enough. She wants more, but has not yet found what this more is.


Working as an Aether Traffic Controller saved Holly Acklin after the death of her husband, but now she wants more—including a night of uninhibited passion with Jack Smith, whose very presence has kept her body tingling for months.

Special Agent Jack Smith kept his identity a secret when he came to the London Royal Port Authority with one assignment, one he cannot fail. It holds him back from following his attraction to Holly. But on the eve he must complete the mission, Holly asks for one night with no rules or boundaries, and his control snaps.

When London experiences an unexpectedly white Christmas, all dirigible traffic is grounded, leaving Holly and Jack free to act upon their stormy passions. Holly finds her determination to stay emotion-free crumbling unaware Jack is experiencing the same need. Each lover wishes for more, but fears it can’t be. Instead they focus their desires in mind-blowing passion.

But when Holly discovers that Jack isn’t who he claimed to be, everything is thrown into turmoil. Can she trust the man she thought she knew?

Now on to the contests! Yes, plural:). I have two fun contests waiting for your participation.

To celebrate the release of Dirigibles Are Forever I’m once again giving away fabulous Overman jewellery.

Beat the Post Holiday Blues – Give Away

I confess I have no idea what our topic is supposed to be this week. It flew past as a notification (hey, dummy, write about this!) in my email while the family was in the midst of prepping for the holiday. And I was in the midst of getting the crappy winter cold that’s been going around. Let the score card read that this was my second chance at this one. I’m done. DONE. No more winter viruses. Unless the next illness includes zombies. And I’m – ya know – not one of the undead. Initially.

Long way of saying that the words I read regarding this week’s topic were not indelibly printed upon my brain. Hence, I wing it. Happy Holidays. 😀


You, dear reader, have needs. We comprehend this. Thus, I have a $25 Amazon gift card for one of our readers, though I do ask a tiny bit of you. Leave a comment, please, with at least two suggestions for topics you’d like read about in the coming year. We’ll entertain silly, fun, scary, what ever floats your reading boat. You have until 12/31 11:59:59 PM to leave your suggestions. At that point, we’ll pull a name out of our virtual hat. Leave me a means by which to contact you – email addy (format: name @ isp . com  – including spaces seems to cut spam a bit) or a Twitter handle. If that makes you uncomfortable, I’ll post the winner to this blog (and a means to reach me so you can take delivery of your loot) on 1/9 – when my turn comes around again.

Also, for your irreverent, Flying Spaghetti Monster entertainment, behold, a noodle-y miracle upon my Solstice orange:

FSM There’s probably something terribly ironic about a Wiccan getting a Solstice orange with the Flying Spaghetti Monster on it, and then taking it to share with the rest of her non-pagan family at Christmas. At least we all got a chuckle before messily devouring the orange.
