RomanceDreamsCelebrating today because Romance of My Dreams has officially moved from the coming soon page to the available now page!  Yippee and yuck!  Glad it’s out, but that means I need to struggle through getting the cover image in a text widget and up on my sidebar.  Sometimes it really sucks to be a computer moron!

Anyway, this is a great romance anthology and it includes my short story, Third Time’s for Keeps, along with nine other short stories.  All romance!

Here’s the blurb for Third Time’s for Keeps:

Jan Garnett and Keith Sanders fell in love in high school, but went their separate ways after graduation.  They reconnect briefly in college, but are torn apart by a secret only Jan knows.  When they meet again over twenty years later, the love is still there, but they’re leery of getting involved with each other because of painful and mistaken impressions from the past.

Jan knows she hurt Keith when she left, but she felt she didn’t have a choice at the time.  She’d give anything to have another chance with him, except he’s involved with another woman.  Or is he?

Keith loves Jan, but before he can chance getting involved with her again, he has to know the truth.  Did she leave because she couldn’t handle an interracial relationship?

This is their third chance for love.  Can they get it right this time?

Available in print at Amazon (no cover there yet but it’s coming!), in ebook for the Kindle and at Fictionwise.  Grab your copy today and enjoy!

I couldn’t resist that picture! It’s perfect for my short story The Secret Life of Alice Smitty in the L&L Dreamspell anthology, PMS: Poison + Murder = Satisfaction which is now available on!

Here’s the blurb:

What does it take to drive a woman to murder?

In Alicia Smith’s case, three things. One, her husband, James, has a heart attack followed by triple bypass surgery and has to stay home from work for eight weeks as he recuperates. Two, her live-in maid runs off to a commune in New Hampshire and takes Alicia’s yardman with her. Three, the appearance of Alice Smitty, who is determined to convince Alicia that killing James will solve all her problems.

Will Alicia take Alice’s advice and murder her husband? Or will she resist temptation and make it through his at-home recovery without doing something that’s guaranteed to land her in prison?

Okay, off to do a Snoopy dance then put the cover up in my sidebar–that is, if I can remember how to do that.

Happy Saturday, Happy Derby Day, Happy May Day (a day late), and Happy New Release Day!
