Welcome to the Drawing Room

Hello! I assume you are here desiring an audience with Lord Heartless? He is out at the moment but I anticipate his return at any time. Until then, find a comfortable chair, settle in, and enjoy a spot of tea. Browse through the available reading material, learn what you can of the heartless duke, and decide if you really want to meet him. Please leave your calling card in the form of a comment.

It was lovely to see you! Please stop by again.

***Please BEWARE*** If you have yet to read Heartless, certain aspects of the story may be inadvertently spoiled for you here. Please take care while exploring.

Heartless: What I'm Doing Now....

Covers for other authors have been keeping me pretty busy lately. That's not a big deal since I rather enjoy the cover design work I do. It does take my time from writing/editing, however, so Heartless has fallen temporarily to the wayside.


I have received the notes from my final proofreader and I fully understand now why it's recommended that several pairs of eyes proofread a manuscript prior to publication. Each reader spotted different typos and had different questions. While applying their suggested changes I spotted a few typos that NONE of them caught. Which means Heartless will be getting one final read-through from me before it gets formatted for eBook publication. I am now several chapters into that final read-through. 

Which leads to another question. How do you stop your overly critical inner-editor and only fix typos?

Re-Releasing Heartless ~ Step 1

There are a number of things that must be done for the actual release of a new (or revised) book. 

The first step is the highly anticipated 


Just as I've been working on the revised edition of this book for over a year, I've been working on the cover too. So here it is, my lovelies, the cover of the new revised edition of Heartless

So what do you think? Would it stop you in your tracks while perusing those shelves at your favorite book store? Would you pick it up, turn it over, see what it's all about? If you saw it on a website, would you click over to find out more? Better question, would the cover alone make you buy it? 

And no, you don't have to answer any of those questions. I love the cover, love the story, and I hope you do too. 

Now that the reveal is done, I will get the final edits done (just fixing typos and whatnot). This has been one consuming task. 

Thank you all so much for your PATIENCE. ♥
