Yes, it’s my very first release day! I’m nervous. I’m excited. I’m either gonna cry or throw up. Not sure which yet. Not gonna squee. I have official “squee-ers” so I don’t have to break my ‘no squee’ rule. Instead of all those things I’m going to talk about the book, the release party, and the downloads I’m offering you.
Sunday’s Child – The Wise Guy releases on Sunday the 22nd at Noble Romance Publishing. It is the last book in their Child of the Week series. However, the book is also my first story about the magical community of the Darkworld. I’m still working on the Darkworld’s creatures page, but I should have some info up there on The Magia before I head to bed tonight. The Magia are the people with magical abilities in the Darkworld. Powers can be inherited, but only if you were born a Magia to begin with. So basically, you had to already be a witch or warlock.
Here’s the blurb for The Wise Guy:
Randall Wise is the quintessential good guy. However, all of his friends are married and he’s still single. Rand is positive that good guys finish last at love and decides he needs to change if he’s ever going to find a woman of his own.
Brenna Thorne is a klutzy but cute would-be witch who moves in next door to Rand. Men always think of Brenna like a sister. They never see her as girlfriend or mate material. Brenna longs for a man of her own who sees her sexy side and all the love she has to give.
A little magic from Rand’s godparents, a familiar who isn’t a familiar, and a host of well-meaning but surprising friends help Rand and Brenna see that all you need to find your mate is a heart that is open to love.
On my download page you will find Wise Guy wallpapers and a screensaver. If you would like a chance to win a copy of the book, I’m going to give you three chances!

Third, you can come to The Jester Show on Wednesday the 25th at 7 pm Pacific time on Talk Show Radio and either call in with a question or be in the chatroom. Three chances to win a FREE copy of The Wise Guy! If you prefer just to buy a copy so you don’t have to mingle, you’ll find the book at Noble Romance.
This book features a black cat named Rambo whose name was taken from my daughter’s cat. In fact the real Rambo is in the trailer. Also in this book are Tyler and James who are patterned after my vision of what Nikki’s boyfriend Tyler and his best friend James will be like at 30! LOL
The Wise Guy is dedicated to Nikki and to author Dee Carney. I wouldn’t have even thought to submit something for this series if it weren’t for Dee. Then, she and L. Shannon pushed me unmercilessly in Word Wars to finish it on time. No one cracks a whip better than those two! And then, when the book was finished, and edits complete, I get the cover from Bree Bridges, half of the writing team that is Moira Rogers. I swear, I almost cried. I think it really hit me when Bree sent me the cover… OMG. I’M BEING PUBLISHED!
Some people never see the realization of their dreams. Tomorrow, I will. Then again on March 5 when Pink Petal Books releases the first books in the Tales of the Darkworld series. I swear I’m numb. I’m just really overcome by all of this. And on top of it all, author Eliza Gayle got me interviewed at All Romance eBooks, just in time for this release. It’s all beyond amazing!
Thanks for coming by and supporting me. I sincerely appreciate all the support I’ve received from friends and fans!
