Guest Blogging

Yay! Midnight Confessions II is now out on the shelves. It's always a great thrill to see the book you slaved over sitting in a store, waiting to be picked up and read.

And I absolutely love this cover. It's so evocative of the warmth and sexiness of the story. Or should I say stories? Midnight Confessions II is set in Perdition House, a haunted bordello.

The stories of the spectral ladies who once lived there (loved there and worked there) are told in dreams to the contemporary owner of the house, Faye Grantham.

RT Magazine gave MC II 4 stars...Harriet Klausner called it a paranormal sizzler. Her review of the book is quite wonderful and she truly "gets" it. So, hats off to Harriet.

Because of the historical details in the ghost stories I've been interviewed over at:


The interview is up now and I'll be giving away a copy each of Midnight Confessions and Midnight Confessions II.

And ZOWIE! I'm also a guest blogger over at www.themidnighthour.net/ because of the paranormal aspects of Midnight Confessions.

Please click on over and say howdy!

Thanks for stopping by!

Rachelle Chase on Playboy Radio, 5/25/07!

Okay, I know Lucinda just "tagged" me - and I really will respond this weekend but ... in the meantime, I just had to share my exciting news ...

I'll be Tara Mack's guest on Playboy Play Date, 2:00-3:00 p.m. PT, on Sirius Radio 198. Here's how the show works: Host Tara Mack presents dating scenarios, callers supply answers (and may win prizes), and I select winners based on the best answers. I'm flying to L.A. to do the game show live, in-studio -- and, afterwards, I just might get a tour of the Playboy television studio.

I hope you'll tune - or better yet, call in to the show at 1(877) 205.9796. It should be wild!

Getting Tagged!

So Bonnie Edwards tagged me. But I'd already been tagged! I thought I'd untagged myself, but rats, I hadn't.

But I like the idea of listing 8 random facts about me, so I'm going to play anyway...

1) My favorite colors are pink and green. I especially like them together.

2) I think the American Quarter Horse is the finest animal ever honed by humans (but throroughbreds are the ultimate eye candy--aside from the men able to ride them).

3) My roses are currently covered in aphids and I need to spray them.

4) I only use organic pesticides on my roses and lawn.

5) I loathe tuna fish, unless its swimming in the sea.

6) I use a Mac.

7) I use to many !!! when I write, and I always have to edit them out.

8) One of these days, I'd like to figure out the secret language of fireflies. (I think its already been done, but still...)

Okay, Dawn Thompson and Devyn Quinn, we're in an upcoming anthology together. Let's see you do the same! Rachele Chase, why don't you join in the fun! I dare you! (See what I mean about the !!?)

I've been tagged

Hi all,
My first ever "tag"...thanks Kimberly Kaye Terry...I owe you. Oh, yeah.

I'm supposed to list 8 random facts about me then tag more people. (g) What the hell...here goes:

I'm a mom.

Horrors! I've swatted a bottom or two...when they needed it...and even more horrible...I'd do it again if I had to. So there!

I taught myself to read at about 4.

I didn't actually graduate high school. Half a credit short. (me and Peggy Bundy - LOL)

I took nearly 15 years to sell my first book...although now I'm finding editors at various houses wanted to buy my work...but I was ahead of the market by several years.

My dog is an American Staffordshire (aka American Pitbull Terrier) and he's the best dog I've ever had.

I used to sell lingerie and know what it's like to need plus sizes and still feel sexy.

I married my high school sweetie and he's still the 'one'. And I'm his.

And these people are being tagged b/c they're in Aphrodisia anthologies with me...and this is kinda fun.

Karin Tabke http://www.karintabke.com/blog/index.php
Sunny http://www.sunnyauthor.com/
Lucinda Betts http://www.theaphrodisiaauthors.blogspot.com/
Sasha White http://www.sashawhite.net/blog/index.php
Jami Alden www.jamialden.com/
Amie Stuart http://amiestuart.com/

And these folks are tagged b/c they're not in anthos with me, but they're cool anyway:

Alexis Morgan http://www.alexismorgan.com/index.html (Dark Paladin series)

Ann Roth http://www.annroth.net/ (women's fiction and Silhouette author and without whose help I never would have found a location for Perdition House, my haunted bordello in my Midnight Confessions series)


1. Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.2. People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.3. At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names. 4. Don't forget to leave them a comment telling them they're tagged, and to read your blog.

SEX LOUNGE is finally out! And to celebrate, I've just launched the SEX LOUNGE Finding Derek CONTEST, an online contest that seeks the American male who resembles Derek Mitchell, the hero of my book.

We're looking for the perfect Derek. And we intend to find him. Participants will be asked to post photos, audio clips, text, and video (later) to convince celebrity and other online judges that there's no better Derek anywhere in the world. Current judges include:

  • Bill Rosenfield, Executive Producer of Grammy award-winning Broadway productions, such as Oprah Winfrey's THE COLOR PURPLE

  • Gail Jones, Owner/Director of Talent+Plus/Los Latinos Agency

  • Stephanie Block, Editor-in-Chief of Tango Diva

More judges and prizes are still being added.

We're looking for great guys to enter and one lucky judge to enter to join our celebrity judges. Both will win fantastic prizes! And, once voting begins, so will web site visitors.

Help me celebrate by entering and visiting www.FindingDerek.com!

Romantic Times!

I'm in red...my power color Susan Lyons, perky as ever!

Here we have a fun crew with me, Kimberly, Sharon, Susan, Sasha (unknown to me...sorry!) and Sunny on the end. What a blast!

More of Kim and Vivi Anna with Sharon in her mask! It was gorgeous and made her quite chatty.

It's been ages since I've posted here, mostly because I've been busy with writing and more writing! But I couldn't let this week go by without talking a bit about my fun times at Romantic Times in Houston. This was my first RT convention and all I can say is WOW!!!!

The cover models! The costumes!

The four star review for Midnight Confessions II in the Romantic Times that everyone got in their welcome package. (can we say excited?!!)

But, for me, the best part was meeting the readers and hanging with my Aphrodisia sisters. (hey, y'all!)

I'm thinking since they've posted pics all over their own sites, that I'd post a couple of my faves here....hope you like them!
