Beefcake Monday!

One of the members here posted this beauty.  (A big thank you to her :)

My travels and giving away ARCs

This trip, none of my dresses got tucked into my underwear (yes, that happened at an RWA conference) I didn't fall down stairs (happened at an airport a few years ago) but I did, of course, call people by the wrong names and job titles. As always.  (What kind of moron am I, that I "remember" all the details wrong every single time?)


My first event was in Milan, and it was heavenly!  The food was amazing.  My first meal, I had asparagus

risotto and it was sinfully good.…

I'm home!

I need a few days to recover from jetlag, get caught up on email, get a few books turned in (3 projects came in at different stages while I was gone) but then I will post pix and stories -- no dress tucked into my underwear this time, no gaping zipper, and no toilet paper on my shoe, so I consider this trip a win! -- and book news I'm excited to share!

Happy Monday, everyone!!  This is gonna be a GREAT week, I just know it, and, well, I'm confessing it, so it has to be. :)


What I've already done: 

I turned in Alice in Zombieland.  I finished my read-through of The Darkest Seduction (Paris's story, and next up, I have to find…

I never know how to title these things, so this one gets a long rambling title about nothing whatsoever

I posted on the Facebook page, but forgot to post here.  I revealed a little tidbit from Dark Taste of Rapture:


From Noelle's point of view: Question of the day: was now the time to reveal the switchblade she’d smuggled in?


Still plugging away at The Darkest Seduction!


Oh, someone asked about the Italy visit.  I don't think any signings are…

Work, work, work

I turned in Alice in Zombieland (yes!!!) so now I'm working on The Darkest Seduction, doing my final read through before I send it to my editor (double yes!!!).


We will be hosting a big contest for those on my Facebook (here) as soon as we pass the 10k mark.  Won't be long now, I'm happy to say.


While I'm in Italy and New York the next…

Good News Friday!

I've updated the Lord of the Vampires page!  Now, all 4 book covers and blurbs for the series are posted!


And later this month (May 31st) marks the release of a highly anticipated book, Kiss of Snow by Nalini Singh. Nalini was kind enough to send me an ARC, and let me just tell you, I DEVOURED this book.  It is amazing in every way, a feast for your senses, sizzling, thrilling,…

Book battle

There's a book battle going, and Ecstasy in Darkness is in the running!  If you have a moment, stop by and vote.  Here.  And no, I'm not saying you need to vote for me.  :)  I've never read the other author, but after reading the blurb about the book, I now have to :)  Sounds fantastic!

Note from Gena

If you enjoyed one of my books, I would be beyond grateful if you took a moment to post a review somewhere online to help other readers discover it.  The review can be as long or as short as you want.  

Thank you so much!
