Well it's launch day. My first single title release. (checking nails) Relief, I haven't bitten them off yet.
Fun things to do today: Check my blog over at www.pasic.net To Be Read Blog.
Check out my blog at Amazon. I finally figured out how to put messages up over there, too! Took forever to be "verified" but Amazon came through just in time.
There's one more thing I want to share: I'll be doing a booksigning of Midnight Confessions at Indigo Books 1025 Marine Drive Vancouver, BC on March 10 from 1 - 3 p.m. I hope I'm not sitting there alone...
I'm hoping to launch my brand new website soon too.
Wow! Busy days so far this year...but I'm keeping to my resolutions to try to stay more fit and to keep readers more informed as the year goes on.
OMG, I just joined the Aphrodisia bookclub and I was shocked to see that my book is one of the selections for next month's choices. It's been paired with Sexy Beast and Lush! How cool is that????? Since I haven't seen it yet, I ordered the selections of the month. I can not wait to hold the book. I'm a nervous wreck about it coming out, so seeing that it's already a bookclub release and not even out yet is kind of surreal! The book is out March 27, but may already be in stores! WOW!

Hi all, I've been so darned quiet lately...blame it on the winter blahs, and a heavily squeezed deadline. Squeezed between the holiday season and two weeks vacation (no, not to anywhere warm and sunny)!
No sooner did I hand in my latest manuscript (Thigh High - an antho out in January 08) than I decided to finally get cracking on my website.
It'll have excerpts! Finally. And it'll be much easier for me to update.
The real reason I've popped out of my bliss is to give thanks to the readers who have supported Aphrodisia for the past year. Yes, we've been on the shelves for just over a year now and growing steadily.
Which brings me to The Hard Stuff...the January 06 anthology... the first one.
Karin Tabke, Sunny, and I have been informed that The Hard Stuff has gone back for its third printing. I think this is where we say "You like us, you really like us!" and blink 'em back.
It was such an incredible piece of news that I was grinning all weekend.
So, while my site's being worked on, I'm not going to go there and gush...no!...I'm doing it here in the hope that more people see it and understand how very grateful all of us who write for Aphrodisia are.
Starting at 9:00am tomorrow EST, a bunch of us Aphrodisia authors are having a chat! Come join us! Read excerpts from our upcoming books and our backlist too. Ask us questions about the industry. We have a lot of fun at these events, and the more, the merrier!
Okay, I'm cheating and reposting this from my blog ... but it's timely and maybe someone here has a guy who's struggling with what to do for Valentine’s Day. If so, here are five ways he can make your day hot … and fun! Simply print this out, circle the one you want, and give it to him. How easy is that? :-)
1. Tease Her
Send her on a treasure hunt. Give her cards in sealed, numbered envelopes, each containing instructions for the next place to go to find her treasures. Hide gifts in the house. Or have pre-purchased gifts waiting at various stores in a mall. At the end of the hunt, the last envelope should lead her to you, where you’ll be waiting with the best treasure of all.
2. Entice Her
Give her a homework assignment to go to a bookstore, buy a romance book, highlight a scene that appeals to her, and give it to you the weekend before Valentine’s Day. You’ll pick up all the props, set the stage, and put the ball in motion for the two of you to act out her fantasy.
3. Seduce Her
Pretend it’s your first date. Buy her an outfit and lay it on the bed. Write a card telling her to wear it and where to meet you for your very first date. Let the innuendos fly as you get to know each other over dinner at your favorite restaurant – or where you first met, then experience that first thrill of desire with an after-dinner slow dance.
4. Pamper Her
Have a candlelight dinner awaiting her when she gets home. Be there to greet her, dressed to impress, as you remove her coat. Pleasant conversation and teasing glances prevail. Afterwards, run her bath, giving her time to soak while you change clothes – a thong or nothing at all. Then, bathe her, wrap her in a towel, and lead her to bed. Candles, flowers, and soothing music fill the bedroom. Caress her body with edible body dust or the oil from a soy-based massage candle.
5. Entertain Her
Show her a side of you she rarely sees. If your every day look consists of jeans and a t-shirt, don a suit and tie. If you always tell her you love her, it’s time to put it in writing - write a letter telling her all the things you love about her. If you’re a planner, do something spontaneous. If you’re rarely affectionate in public, shower her with affection.
Well, those are my five. Anyone got any other ideas or romantic plans for Valentine's Day?
