Life as a zombie

Ahh....motherhood. It's amazing. I love my little pooper so much, but I cant remember the last time I slept, or wrote anything worth reading. You know those pictures of beautiful, tranquil mothers wearing impeccable makeup as they tenderly cradle their child? Well, that's not me. I look like one of the zombies that was stuck in the flooded basement on Walking Dead. Bloated, pale, with dark circles eyes. Only for my darling son would I undergo this sleep deprivation experiment.

On the plus side, I've been stuck in my glider during the day and have discovered that I enjoy some daytime tv: #LivewithKellyandMichael, #thechew, and I love #LastWeekTonight with John Oliver. This past Sunday, John Oliver covered the travesty of how the US is one of only two countries that doesn't require companies to provide moms with paid maternity leave. I don't know how moms without paid leave manage it; I'm a basket case and I've been out for eight weeks.

At any rate, the world has not stopped turning as I kiss my snuggly baby, and my second book in the Billionaire Tricksters of Boston series, A FRENCH WHIPPING, is coming out near the end of May. Nick is controlling, possessive, and very in love with Blake Webster. She is the one person with the power to unravel his carefully crafted self-possession.

Here's a little teaser for your enjoyment:
"Under less horny circumstances, Blake might have been embarrassed to be trussed up with her ass in the air, but she wanted him too badly to care at the moment. The tight silk resisted as she instinctively tried to stretch, the crisscrossed cord beneath her making a sibilant sound."



By the way, I suck. I had to delay the completion of the final book LIE IN THE MOMENT, Roland's story, due to a complicated end of pregnancy and labor, so its publication was moved to January. Yes, I'm blaming the kid. Real writers work through exhaustion and discomfort. I am, however, giving myself a pass on this one.

In the meantime, there are some great promos coming up!
