Lynsay's Note - to view online, select this link

I am back in my writing cave and it's dark and scary down here. Ok... its dark and scary because it's 3:04am, everyone is asleep and I swear I can hear coyotes just outside my patio door. I have the blinds drawn because I don't want to see whatever it is that's making noise out there in the dark however my imagination is working overtime. For instance I'm thinking about the part in the book The Taking where the heroine goes outside and the wolves come up on to the deck out of the weird rain and surround her. They don't do anything but look at her beseechingly before running back out into the weird red rain. Well... I'm not that stupid or brave so the doors stay locked and I stay inside. 

Speaking of coyotes, it brings to mind the news story I read online a while back... I believe it was about a woman that rescued what looked to be a malnourished puppy; however, when she took it in to her local vet they discovered it was actually a young, possibly rabid, coyote...Oops!  

I find this story particularly relevant because this almost happened to my sister. She was traveling alone along a local highway at night and she came across a lone animal just off the side of the road. It looked a little thin, like a dirty stranded dog. She came to a stop off the side of the road to get a better look... Luckily she had good eyesight back then and could tell that what she thought was a "young bedraggled dog" was actually a coyote! I don't even want to think about what might have happened had she not recognized what it actually was and proceeded to coax the "poor unfortunate dog" into her car. Could you imagine having a wild coyote in your backseat while driving down a dark highway in the middle of the night? Talk about a scary ride...  

Speaking of scary, Halloween is right around the corner and, big surprise, it is one of my favorite holidays. So to celebrate vampires, shape shifters and everything else that goes bump in the night I thought this would be the perfect time to hold another contest. More details can be found below; however, the jist of it is this... Dress up, take a selfie and post it on my Facebook fan page! And to get you in the right frame of mind here's a pic of some of the masks I've collected over the years...

Many of my readers have been asking when the next book in my Argeneau series will be coming out. I have great news on that front... Book #21 called The Immortal Who Loved Me will be out on the bookstore shelves on February 24th! (I do apologize for the delay between books but I had to take about six months off of work to recover from a concussion I acquired last Christmas. It was a doozy; however, I've been told I was very lucky and that it could have been much, much worse.) 

On the news front I have some cover releases to tell you about... Sweet Revenge is being reissued at the end of November and The Loving Daylights is being reissued at the end of December. These are both such great covers!

Sweet Revenge is one of my first Scottish historical that will be reissued on Nov 25th.
The Loving Daylights is a contemporary spy novel that will be reissued Dec 30th.

Sweet Revenge A scottish historical like no other ...

This is the second book I ever wrote, but the fourth historical of mine published. When I started Sweet Revenge I wanted it to take place in the feuding Scottish Highlands, cause there's nothing sexier than a Scot to me. I also wanted to write a story with a strong female friendship in it. Frankly, female friends rock, especially when times get tough. Fortunately for me, the hero and heroine came walking into my head fully formed. The hero is this mountain of a Scot, a strong and brave warrior who proves himself to be surprisingly considerate in private. As for the heroine, while she's sweet, intelligent and bold, the first impression she makes isn't that great. Okay, basically, the Scots think she's batty. You shouldn't be surprised to hear, then, that I had a blast writing this one.

The Loving Daylights Who doesn't love a good spy...

This James Bond-esc cover is perfect forThe Loving Daylights, a spy novel spoofing the infamous series but with a female lead of course! 

Jane Spyrus is a gadget geek who's much more like a Q than a James Bond.  But of course this isn't a serious mystery with cool lead but a humorous adventure with a charmingly quirky leading lady, her wickedly funny sidekick grandmother with her ever-present yappy lapdog.  And of course we can't forget the handsome and often bemused hero that really has no choice but to follow these ladies into trouble.
