Yawn. I am so tired. I could not sleep last night for some reason. Ever have nights like that? You haven't had any caffeine, you're plenty tired, but you can't seem to relax and fall asleep. Annoying.

I just finished Gena Showalter's Awaken Me Darkly, by the way. Great book! Really, really kick ass. The heroine, Mia, is one tough chick - yet still very likable. And the love interest... Well all I can say is me-ow! Hot, hot, hot. I highly recommend it if you're a fan of Laurell K. Hamilton. It rocks. Can't wait for the next one in the series.

Speaking of - don't you love that feature on Amazon where it says "Customers who bought this book also bought:" I always use it when I'm checking out a new author to see what her book is similar to. Here's mine for CT Fashionista:

Customers who bought this book also bought:

Derik's Bane (Berkley Sensation) by Mary Janice Davidson
The Good, the Bad, and the Undead by Kim Harrison
Sex, Lies And Vampires (Paranormal Romance) by Katie Macalister
Sins of the Night (A Dark-Hunter Novel) by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Awaken Me Darkly by Gena Showalter
Hard Day's Knight by Katie MacAlister

All I can say is - people who bought my book have GREAT taste! And no, not cause they bought CT Fashionista (well maybe a little bit because of that!). But also because they also bought some of my favorite romance authors as well. There's not one name on the list that I don't love. :) Guess I'm writing for the right people...

Okay anyway - time for (yawn!) work. Sorry this isn't more exciting. Just one of those mornings....

Oh yeah I've had nights like that. Tends to happen for me when it's really hot outside.

Kyrin En Arr is definitely an appealing hero :)

You're in great company there, for sure! But then, so are they (we LOL). Your book was awesome!!
