It’s been a tough few weeks in the Montgomery household. Some personal struggles, a few unshakable headaches, and some edits/revisions that were more intense than I’d anticipated. What is it about edits that make you look at your work and say…man, this is such crap, why did the publisher take it in the first place?

From what I’ve gathered over the years, this is pretty common for us writer-types so I don’t let it keep me down for long.

I took a random poll on Facebook last week by asking how do you prefer your water: with ice, chilled, from the tap, bottled, room temperature, etc.

I was so surprised by the responses. Who knew that a minor disagreement between me and my husband over room temperature water would trigger such a great debate. I learned a lot about how my friends and fans loved their water and I realized…this isn’t something that would normally pop up in my character building. Why not? I mean…if you can’t stand the taste of city water or the way ice makes your teeth hurt, wouldn’t that be an interesting thing to know? And…if you have a vampire with a sensual connection through his fangs…what would cold do to him? Would it bring pleasure or pain? If cold created a highly sensitive response, would it increase his aggressive behavior? Trigger a response neither expected. See, this is what my head does all day. LOL!

Speaking of vampires…my latest EC book releases December 18th. Can you imagine becoming a vampire and realizing the change also triggered an extremely rare chocolate allergy? Could you live for eternity without another taste? I know I couldn’t.

The Vamp-Life sucks if you’re the only female vampire in the world allergic to chocolate. When a wizard with a penchant for kitchen magic comes to town, however, things can take a delicious and sinful turn. Chocolate goes well with…everything.

Rachel Karrin is at her wit’s end. The benefits to vampire life look pretty grim when her new powers come with limits on her favorite food. Chocolate. The rare allergy is unusual enough to gain the interest of the Kitchen Witch Society.

When the sexy, brooding Ryan Shepard shows up, there’s more than chocolate on the menu and his temptation is far more than she can take in her world of blood and sex.

Until next time, keep writing! I’m going underground to finish these revisions and will be back for air come Monday. Muah!

I’m finishing up edits on my latest Ellora’s Cave book, Deep Cravings. So exciting! I can’t wait til you guys read it. 🙂 The series covers released for the Red Velvet Christmas books. He’s a sexy red-headed elf. Renee George makes so many fun Christmas theme covers. I love her style.

I’m at 10,468 on NaNoWriMo. The novel is coming along as well as can be expected. I’ve hit a few snags, but I’ve tried to write this book five times now. It’s not unusual to suffer from some low self-confidence moments. 🙂  I make November’s NaNoWriMo the month of pushing myself beyond my limits and stepping out of my comfort zone. I don’t think I’ve reached the point where I can tackle contemporary romance, but who knows. 😀 If I can break through and win with this problem child, I’m all for it.

Anyway, coming soon from Changeling Press, Red Velvet: Hidden Confection.


A showdown between chefs like you’ve never seen before…

One Christmas Eve, Mia Devyne of Devyne Pastries went underground and closed up shop for good under scandalous rumors of bewitching red velvet holiday cakes designed to skyrocket your sex drive. Her disappearance sparked a worldwide search for her sensual seductions cookbook.

Four years later, a rival pastry chef has arrived on the scene with his own version of the cakes, and Mia can’t stay away. For a Christmas present to herself, she wants to try just one bite of the Better Than Sex cupcake, and then she’ll disappear back into the shadows. If she gets to kiss Liam again, well, that’s just an added bonus.

Liam Merriman has one goal… draw the sexy Mia out of hiding and back to the spotlight where she belongs. He knows why she disappeared all those years ago, and he plans on picking up where they left off. Naked. In his bed.

New Cover and Back in the Saddle

In #amwriting, Coverart, Goals, Publishing News on September 4, 2013 at 6:43 pm

PWCicon2Welcome back to the blog! I’m back to regular posting. When I get to the end of a project, I tend to disappear from the ‘net until it’s done. Four times now I’ve done it, so I think that qualifies as a habit. I don’t duck out on purpose. When I get to the end of a book I lose all track of time. I eat, breathe, and sleep about the book until it’s done. Then, once I have it turned in, all is right with the world again.

I didn’t return empty-handed, however. Today I’ve got a new cover. 😀

Coming in November: Shift the Night, Dark Talisman #2


#ROW80 update


Goals this week:

  1. Dragons Never Lie: 2 chapters done by next Wednesday
  2. Feral Hunger Edits and new content: I’m doing this one by page count. My goal is to get through chapter two by next Wednesday. With the kids back in school, it’s been much easier to concentrate.
  3. Voodoo Carnival: Keeping the same goal and continue at 500 words a day (equates to a scene every couple of days or a chapter every four or so). It’s working for me, and anything working is going to stay that way. LOL. Until it’s not. 😉 

Weekend Goals: 

  1. Edits on Last Rites: Get halfway through the book this weekend.
  2. Edits on To Chase a Werewolf: Chapter one this weekend.
  3. First Chapter’s Edits of Carter’s Legacy in preparation for Harlequin’s So You Think You Can Write contest.

Workshops I’m attending this month: 

  • Writing the New American Cowboy- Bikers 101
  • Steampunk American Style

The Biker one has already started and I’m LOVING IT!

I’m part of a fantastic group called A Round of Words in 80 Days, and if you’d like to see how everyone else is doing, check out the list HERE.

Would you like to be a part of our writing challenge? Check out the rules HERE.

Keep Writing!

Haunting Melody St. Claire

In Coverart, Publishing News on April 1, 2013 at 12:06 am

Haunting Melody St. Claire. I adore this cover. My first co-written EC book is available NOW from Ellora’s Cave!

Melody St. Claire doesn’t believe in ghosts. Until a fire destroys her whole world, forcing her into a beautiful haunted house and the territorial domain of one very real, incredibly mysterious resident spirit.

Sexy Travis Santiago haunts the walls of his family home. Resigned to being alone, he merely exists in a place between the living and the dead until the frustrating little brunette enters his life and his heart. He can give her what she needs, if she would just believe.

The passion he ignites threatens to consume her, heart and soul, but may not be enough to hold back the nightmares. And Melody can’t possibly hope to spend forever with a man who is already dead.
