Bring On 2012

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a great Christmas and is looking forward to this bright, shiny New Year. I know it's just psychological, but I love the possibility of a fresh new start. January 1st is the perfect excuse to try and shake off some bad things from the previous year and start over. Turn a new page, so to speak. I plan to write many new pages this year, if all goes according to plan.

I've got another release on January 2nd, a friends-to-lovers novella from Carina Press called Touch Me. I'll be guest blogging at several sites to talk about the book, so I'll keep you posted on the dates.

In other news, my pal Katie Reus is hosting a ginormous contest beginning January 1st and running through mid-February. She's got a release from Carina on January 2nd as well, a romantic suspense called His Secret Past. Then on February 7th, it's her New York debut with Alpha Instinct, the first of the Moon Shifter series from NAL. It's a fast-paced introduction to her world of kick-ass shifters and other paranormal beings that paranormal romance fans will devour.

In this contest, Katie's giving away books from authors such as me and Cynthia Eden, treats, and the grand prize of an Amazon Kindle. To check it out and sign up, follow this link. Hope you'll enter!

Wishing all of you a wonderful, shiny New Year bright with possibilities,

Callie :)

Dillon's Claim Release!

The standalone sequel to Deacon's Touch is out today and I can't wait for you to read about this sexy eldest Dumen brother. Here's the blurb for Dillon's Claim:

Charissa Myers attends a bachelorette weekend at a Texas guest ranch, knowing she'll have to confront Dillon Dumen. The sexy cowboy is everything she's ever wanted in a man but, gun-shy after a previous BDSM encounter gone bad, she denied her need to submit to the irresistible Dom. She expects his anger, but what she doesn't expect is Dillon's determination to finish what they started all those months ago. 

Dillon doesn't understand what spooked Charissa in the first place, but now that she's on his turf, he wants a hell of a lot more from her than answers. He's got two days to weaken her resistance and stake his claim once and for all. And this time, he's not letting her go without a fight.

There are a couple of contests going on today where you can enter to win a digital copy of Dillon's Claim. One is at The Wilder Rose Press blog, and the other is over at Naughty Author Chicks. I hope you'll stop by to enter!

This is the first year I'll be on Santa's naughty list (um, due to my erotic romance releases), so here's hoping I get more than a lump of coal in my stocking Christmas morning.

Happy holidays!
Callie ;)

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

Holy smokes, it's three weeks until Christmas! I love this time of year, but it sure is a ton of work. We decorate our house to the nines, and hubby's got the front yard looking like something out of National Lampoon's Christmas.

How are you doing with your holiday prep? I've got almost all my shopping done, so now I've got to wrap, bake and get ready for Christmas dinner. We're hosting hubby's side of the family on Boxing Day so that takes some of the stress out of the 25th for me.

I've got another release coming out next Friday the 16th (Dillon's Claim, the sequel to Deacon's Touch), and then an unrelated release with Carina on January 2nd (Touch Me). I'll be hosting giveaways for both books, so stay tuned for details.

Happy holidays everyone!
