And it rained for 40 days...

I'm not sure if it's been 40 days, but it's been long enough to send the mighty Mississippi River over the edge of the banks and make a lot of people miserable. I have pictures of our local attempts to hold back the rising tide, but the crest isn't until later today and I'm superstitious enough to wait until I'm certain the levee is holding :) It's been a little odd to have the national news floating around the area...and it was incredibly exciting to have Barak Obama stop by and fill a few sandbags!

On much a much happier note, I will be blogging with our lovely Jackie on June 28th...I intend to give away an ARC for Darkness Revealed (Cezar's story) so make sure you stop by and say hi . I also learned that book five (Jagr's story) is going with the title Darkness Unleashed!

And on an even happier, happier note, I will be giving away a signed copy of Darkness Everlasting to a randomly drawn name right here on Authors After Dark. All you need do is tell me your best ( or worst) family vacation!

Update from The D'Arc Side...

My turn to blog again. Okay, let's see what's happened since our last episode of the Bianca show here on Authors After Dark...

I went to Ohio for the Lori Foster get together and saw my good buddy Jacki Frank in passing. I was kind of scattered so I didn't get to spend as much time with Jacki as I'd hoped. Darnit. But she made a splash, as usual, and I got to meet a lot of people I'd spoken to for months online but had never seen in person. That's always gratifying - to be able to put a face with a name.

The annual Long Island RWA Luncheon was last Friday, so that was another great opportunity to talk to industry folks. Since then, I've been writing up a storm to fulfill promises to send proposals to people. Hopefully something will come of some of the connections I made earlier this month, but you never know.

In the meantime, I have some good news for fans of my paranormal series. It looks like the stories that began the series that are currently out of print, will be available again soon. I think I've found a home for them and will make the official announcement as soon as the contracts are signed. But for now, keep an eye out - One & Only, Rare Vintage and Phantom Desires will probably be out again in the next few months. More information as it becomes available.

I'll try to be more prepared for my next blog slot, but all the traveling has messed up my best laid plans. Sorry. I'll find something more entertaining to talk about next time. Promise! :)

Running Against the Wind!

I am uber crazy insanely hectic! I barely have time to brush my teeth!! I have been blogging, interviewing and promoting all over! ACK!!! So you will forgive me, won't you, if I don't do a real blog today? You won't mind, will you, if I merely give away an advanced copy of NOAH? It's a cheap substitute, I know...but I will sign it personally and everything :) Promise! Now, I have to go pack madly for the Lori Foster Get Together!! ACK!!!!

Oh, just comment below to enter to win. What topic? The biggest blunder you ever made because you were so damn rushed and busy. Like...leaving the milk in the freezer, dropping your keys down a grate, forgetting to put a skirt on over your slip...things like that!

Have fun!!

Hugs and Kitties,
