Hysterical video about BDSM Dominants

Okay, now, there’s nothing graphically explicit in this video, but it IS hysterically funny, and it does contain one bad word. Keep watching past the end to the “outtake.” LOL! Do not drink anything while watching this video! LOL

Open Letter to NY Publishers

(The article prompting this letter can be found here.) Okay, Simon and Schuster and Hachette, seriously, WTF? You are going to delay the release of ebooks for months after hardcover…why? “…Preserve your industry?” Seriously? Okay, let me explain some basic economics that apparently someone hasn’t taken the time to explain to you. Cheaper books (ebooks) … Read More

Release Day! – "Safe Harbor"

I love release day! Even if it is on a Monday. *LOL* My latest Tymber Dalton book, “Safe Harbor,” is now available from Siren-BookStrand. http://www.bookstrand.com/product-safeharbor-15987-200.html This book is a good mix of the BDSM aspects of “The Reluctant Dom,” with some of the humor and lighter moments of “Love Slave for Two.” I mean, does … Read More


They have graphics for the participants and winners, but does Nanowrimo have logos for those of us who not only missed the mark, but we never started? I mean, it’s not that I didn’t have time to write, because that’s why I didn’t have time to do Nano. Yes, it’s ironic. I was too busy … Read More

"…but I’d need to get another extension cord to do it."

And just like that, my husband unwittingly gave me the title for this blog post. Now, I’ve blogged about my husband’s holiday decorations before. This year we’ve added more wire animals, another couple of blow-ups (including my favorite, the huge chubby penguin), and have swapped out more of the lights for LEDs. One thing that … Read More

Harlequin Hooey

If you’ve been under a rock in romland for the past few days, you might not have heard about Harlequin’s boneheaded move to add what amounts to little more than a pay-to-get-published vanity press Harlequin Horizons to their line-up. This move not only got them slapped down almost immediately by the RWA, but by other … Read More

*Happy Dancing!* Okay, first of all, thank you to all who voted for “Love Slave for Two: Beginnings” as book of the week, because…IT WON!!! *Snoopy Dancing!* Second big news, and yes, I’m waaaay behind updating my websites and blog… I had a total of three books make it to the annual EPIC contest, “Out … Read More

Writing How-To: (Bad Pun Alert) Easy Writer.

I want to let you in on a little secret about writing. (It’s not a secret for my fellow pubbed authors, because they already know this, so quit that snickering there in the peanut gallery.) Writing is the EASY part of your job. Yep. You know, all those gallons of sweat and all those buckets … Read More

Gidget’s world domination continues.

Gidget was a pirate for Howl-oween. Obviously, her plan for world domination includes cuteness to take everyone by surprise.

Call off the search dogs, I’m back.

Fight Pirates – Earn Booty! (No, not THAT kind of booty!)

(Note: there is a contest behind all of this, you just have to wade through the rant to get to it! LOL) I hate pirates. Not the yargh matey, rape-pillage-plunder fellows. Those guys are okay. The pirates I despise with a passion are the ones who illegally post files for download. In other words, scurvy … Read More

Writing How-To: Determination

Approximately a year ago, about this time, my older Toshiba laptop died. Well, as I panicked when the screen, which had been getting progressively redder upon start-up over several months, went totally black, I realized I still had lights on in the main laptop body. Meaning it wasn’t dead-dead, just sort of dead. I unplugged … Read More
