Contest Announced: Name the New Book

You may read an excerpt if this would help you: is the link to join my yahoo group, and there's only one file in the excerpts folder - this one.

I need a title for an erotic romance in which a rose quartz crystal is prominent. Rose Quartz is used for healing: Bruises, Angina, Asthma, Eyesight, Migraine and Sciatica.

Editor would like the word crystal in the title…and right now my brain isn’t firing on all pistons, so I’m running a contest. Whoever comes up with the title that the Editor likes best wins a free download of the novella once it debuts, or you can choose a free download of the current one with Ellora’s Cave called Just Desserts that debuted March 22, 2006.

Information about the novella you’ll be naming:

Setting = New York City & St. Louis
Elements = paranormal, metaphysics, crystals, healing, comedy
Dirty words = several, but don’t let that throw you, it’s just Sensuous, not Scorching

Plot Points = City artist is sent to Missouri to meet with a new client and forge an ad campaign for his company. What she doesn't know is that her boss set up the meeting with hopes of getting her to 'loosen up', his mother is her shrink, and the talisman they've given her to play with prior to the meeting holds magical, sexual healing powers.

Titillating Title Thespians are welcome to submit their contest entries by emailing with the subject header: Title Contest 4/24/06. Contest is open from today April 21, 2006 until Monday, April 24, 2006.

Thanks for playing.

Can We Talk Now???
I am chillin' OUT the rest of today. Tuesday...sold a book. Wednesday received 1st round of edits on said book - no shit. This editor was ON the proverbial ball. Thursday, received edits on yet another book - different publisher - this was a 'big' book, too - but I stayed up until 2 am to make sure I got those edits turned in. Friday, I get notification that more edits are coming from yet another publisher...ooookay. I can do this. I am woman, hear me roar. (Take a look at the marvelous photos of lions done by Spook!)
* * *
I started my day early – phoning around for a 350 factory-rebuilt engine for an old truck, a mechanic willing to deal with the mess, and a cab so that #1 Son and his Lady could share a cab to work considering Debbie (truck) was about to shoot a rod through the oil pan.

Then I had 15 emails (by last count) from editors and such…all good…nothing bad. Did my mail, fixed coffee, forgot to eat lunch and take my meds until about 3 pm, got a letter ready for an agent, and pulled out the 4 WIPs that need my attention. Nuts, I know.

Blog World Goodies

Buddy Samantha Winston posted an excerpt of her book Virtual Murder that was QUITE good – take a look and see if this doesn’t intrigue you!

A couple of folks asked which blogs I’d done on artist Julian Beever, and they were here and here.

Balls and Walnuts has some amazing recipes this week – so before you run out of steam, head over to Doug’s place and drool a bit.

And with that, I’m gonna go in search of the perfect margarita. I have bigod earned it today.

Thanks for the promo post Lyn!!
- Hey guys, I didn't have to promise kilos of French chocolate for life, I swear!

Hope you find a title soon, and good luck with the edits. It seems edits are like mosquitoes they always come in swarms, lol.

Oh, Sam, I loved that excerpt! And thank YOU for helping out with the title search. I'm weird, but I actually like doing edits. Brings out the best - I know my place in things, and it's as writer, not editor - lol. I was just astounded to get 3 sets in 1 week. *faints*
