It was always my intention to return to the Greek pantheon and do stories for Hades and Artemis, among possible others. Since starting my Gemini Island Shifters series, and seeing the demand for those stories, I've been rather caught up in the world of shifters. I would like to return to my Greek gods, as they are my first love, but I want to make sure I have an awesome story. Rest assured, as soon as I have a good one, you'll hear about it here. :)(less)

I appreciate your comments. I do plan my stories...somewhat. I like to outline and have an idea how it will end. I do character histories and like to establish major plot points. In romance, we know the boy will always get the girl, but we have to make it look like it's possible for them NOT to end up together. They have to surmount obstacles. I do like to leave room for exploration in my plot. Sometimes characters do tell you where to go, and it's not always where you expect. I believe in leaving myself a little wiggle room. Thanks for your question!(less)

Hi Sarah! I had a look and realized afterward it's just about 50 Shades. I'll be honest, I've never read it and it isn't on my TBR list.

Rosanna Leo Hi friends. There are still book pirates out there. I just spent the past while sending take down notices to a pirate who had almost all my books, equaling tons of illegal downloads. What can you do when you see your favorite author`s book on a pirate site? Tell the author so she can contact them. Report them. Hit them where it hurts (their wallets) by refusing to download from them. It may not seem like a big deal, but each illegal download hurts authors, whether small-press or indie.
