It seems I’ve been rushing around a lot lately and I’ve not posted a lot recently other than the normal contests, additions to the Books You Can Win List, and updates to The Million Pages Challenge. So, I thought I’d relax a bit, catch up, share what I’ve been reading, and what I’m excited about here at BVS and elsewhere.
First, my husband is a real sweetheart and gave me my Christmas present early this year. Yes, I DO usually finagle it out of him early. This year he got me the Kindle Fire which I’d been looking at with longing. I’ve had the Kindle Fire a couple of days now and really, really like it. It’s about the same size as my old Kindle but is heavier. Its display is color and pages turn with a flick of a finger– I like that — a lot. I never really could get used to the page turning with the old Kindle. It’s also not a single purpose device like the Kindle is. I can read books on it, but I can also watch movies, surf the web, watch videos, tweet, do email, play games, etc. I like that it is smaller than the laptop and does a lot of the same things that a laptop does (though it isn’t a replacement for a laptop). I like that I can carry it to the recliner, sit there with it, use Twitter, watch a training video, email or read a book…all without needing to scramble around for a plugin as I’d need to for the laptop.
I’m currently reading Dom’s of Dark Haven 1 by Cherise Sinclair, Sierra Cartwright, and Belinda McBride. I bought the book because Cherise Sinclair is one of my favorite non-BVS authors and I’ll pretty much buy and read anything she writes — though I haven’t purchased her paranormal Hour of the Lion yet. I’m excited that Cherise has a new release out… To Command and Collar. Yes, it already has a home on my Kindle Fire and within the Kindle app on my Android.
Though I have had a chance to do a little reading I’ve not done a lot because I’ve been busy getting ready for our next release here at BVS. Just in time for the Christmas holidays we’re releasing Cowboys in Charge by Starla Kaye. It’s an anthology which includes seven romantic spanking stories. It’s filled with cowboys and the women who frustrate and love them. These stories are both steamy and poignant…all set at Christmas time. The book is available at All Romance Ebooks now if you would like it early. It will be releasing in all the normal channels as well as some new ones within the next few days.
Releases are funny things — you submit files to the stores like Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Sony, etc. but the books are usually not available the moment the files are uploaded. It takes some time for the store to build the page for the book and create the necessary links and so on so the actual release date can lag behind the point at which the files were uploaded.
If you like short stories with heat and poignancy you can check it out at All Romance Ebooks. The first story in the anthology is included as an excerpt so you can read an entire story to get a feel for whether this is your kind of book.
I was going to post my Million Pages Challenge reads here but this post is getting long so I think I’ll save it for another post.
Let’s make this fun…I have a free ebook copy of Cowboys in Charge for the first, eighth, and fifteenth persons to comment on this post. Third, tenth, and thirteenth posts will each get a lace tree ornament. You can post more than one comment and qualify but each comment must be meaningful and add to the discussion in some way.
Since Cowboys in Charge is a collection of stories set at Christmas let’s talk about Christmas. What books and/or other gifts do you hope Santa leaves under your tree this Christmas? What are some of your favorite Christmas (or other winter holiday) traditions?
