Wacky Word Wednesday

IMG_4714What Wednesday would be complete without learning a fun, new word to add to your vocabulary?

This weeks word comes from the category Grossly Self-Indulgent and is a general expression for gluttons, and is from the mid 16C-19C and then found life again in the 1930’s.


Let’s use it in a sentence.

That gully-gut ate all the Paczki!

The reviews are in…

pierced-by-venomAnd even though I was a bit worried about what readers would say about Pierced By Venom, it seems they are loving my attempt at dark and intense.

“A captivating story that shows survival, love, and of course a little paranormal! This is the second story of the Redeeming Cupid series and continues with Grayson’s sister, Gia. It was so hard to read about the pain she had to endure – her husband being shot by her ex-boyfriend, being abducted by said ex, and the knowledge she was going to be forced into drugs and prostitution. What was more inspiring was seeing that her love for Christopher (husband) could stand the trials and help her through the Hells she is traveling through in the story. Each main character became a little more complex and was able to grow through her travels. It shows the reader that the blame does not always fall on one person, but that the choices you make shape your future.

I enjoy paranormal love stories and this one definitely fits the bill! I can’t wait to see what Cupid is up to next.

“This book had a bit of darkness and an intensity I wasn’t expecting. Having gone through what she did and come out stronger was something to look up to. I loved her sarcasm even in the face of something evil and sinister. It even had me snorting out a few laughs. I highly recommend this one!”

Happy Book Birthday to Pierced By Venom

piercedbyvenom_l-2Pierced By Venom officially came out to the world yesterday!  I have a Valentine’s Book Baby!

While I love the story of Gia and Chris, it is so different from Struck By Eros that I have worried that readers who loved the lightheartedness of Eros would find Pierced By Venom a bit too dark. Can you say author anxiety?

The vast difference between the two books comes from the myths they are based on. Struck By Eros is retelling of the myth of Apollo and Daphne, a tragic story, but one that could handle a retelling with humor and plenty of snark. Pierced By Venom is a modern day retelling of the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice. There is nothing lighthearted or humorous about that myth. It’s tragic with a capital TRAGIC! In fact, taking Gia and Chris through hell and giving them a HEA at the end was a twist all of it’s own.

Two very different books that belong to the same world. I guess you can say I like to make my readers wonder if I am a dark writer or a funny writer.


The first review came in this morning, a review from someone who doesn’t actually know me and read Struck By Eros.They loved it!

5 Stars on Amazon – 

“A captivating story that shows survival, love, and of course a little paranormal!”
