Something Wicked This Way...(After Dark Blog Hop)

Admit it . . . you love the bad boys.  At some point in a story, you’ve found yourself rooting for them.  There is just something about a steamy antagonist that is just oh-so-tempting.  (I can't help but think of Damon from Vampire Diaries)

And let’s face it.  You can’t have a story without one.  They drive the intensity; they propel the conflict all the way to climax.  If it weren’t for the villainous bad boys, the hero/heroine would lose their affect.  Not to mention, those bad boys are usually just, well, yummy.

And – if they are doing their jobs – they remind us of the darker parts of ourselves that perhaps we wish weren't really there, they make us secretly root for them or feel sorry for them – then they do something ungodly that reminds us why it really would just never work out, no matter how drop dead sexy they are.  The really great ones are those we can see as the protagonists of their own story, and perhaps –  if things had been a bit different –  they could have been the hero.

So . . . in honor of those oh-so-wicked bad boys, I'm doing a little giveaway. 

Leave a comment and tell me who your favorite bad boy is.  What character do you hate to love?

Helllooo Alpha Male!

I was trying to decide what to say about Alphas and all I could think about was Thor.  Specifically, Chris Hemsworth as Thor. 

Let’s face it, as readers we are drawn to Alphas.  They are in control, but not controlling.  They are sexy, without being so full of themselves we’d kick them out of bed for eating crackers.  In otherwords . . . Thor.  Ok, ok.  I’m letting Thor go (for now anyway).

Ultimately, an Alpha is the ideal combination of “nice guy” and “jerk.”  I know, I know . . . right now some of you are thinking “I sooo do not want any element of “jerk” in my Alpha.” 

To that I say – Really? 

Every woman (who is honest about it) will admit that she doesn’t want a guy who is a pushover.  The same goes for our Alphas – fictional or not. 

I’d have to say, if I were to give my definition of an Alpha male, it would be a little something like this:

He’s a natural leader, doesn’t necessarily know all of the answers, but he’s wicked smart and exudes confidence.  He’s a problem solver, can figure his way out of a tight spot. He tends to not be outwardly emotional, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t care deeply.  Just means he isn’t going to sit around eating from the carton of Ben & Jerry’s talking about his feelings.  He can sometimes come across as abrupt and insensitive, but that’s simply because he’s on a mission and goal oriented and that can be taken the wrong way.  Physically, he’s a force to be reckoned with.  Imposing, strong, athletically fit, tall and in general all around hotter and sexier than the average guy.  (Did I mention Thor?)
How about you?  What THREE characteristics do you think are imperative to have in an Alpha male?

Cover Reveal Giveaway


For those who haven’t heard me go on and on over on Facebook . . . and Twitter . . . and my Facebook Author page, ok, you get my point.  I’ve gone on and on.  But for those who haven’t heard it yet, Lullaby is currently in the running for the SoYou Think You Can Write competition being sponsored by Mills & Boon and Harlequin. 

Yes, I’m psyched and a little nervous.  Would be even more psyched if you all would go and (shameless plug) VOTE FOR ME!?!? (Keep in mind, you can vote every day until Oct. 12)

Since everything seems to be buzzin’ this week, I thought it would be a great time to reveal the book cover for Lullaby.  It is sooo close to being ready to publish.  I am uber excited about how bright the light at the end of the tunnel is getting.  BUT, you haven’t seen the COVER yet!  We need to do something about that, and we will.  TOMORROW @ 7 pm EST.

In honor of the Cover Reveal, I’m having a Giveaway.  Why?  Because I love giveaways.  Who doesn’t? 
  • $10 Amazon or B & N gift card (that could easily buy you 10 awesome eBooks)
  • 3 ARCs of Lullaby (just as soon as they are ready to go . . . which should be soon)

I’m not going to give away points for voting for me . . . I would prefer you do that just because you like Chapter 1 of Lullaby (or because you kinda like me, or maybe you just feel sorry for me . . . I’m not picky, I’ll take votes for whatever reason you want to give them).

So . . . enter the giveaway below.  Share with your friends. And I’ll see you back here tomorrow.
