Sure Thing told us about this in the comments yesterday:
I had no idea they were doing this, but those are the best books I’ve ever written. Seven books for twelve bucks is a good price, too. Huh.
Oh, and the first structure post is up over at Writing/Romance.
There’s a new issue of an old Christmas novella called “Hot Toy” out now . . .
If you read the anthology Santa Baby, you’ve read this. It’s old, not new.
Nice cover, though.
I always feel iffy about promoting my books on here. Sort of like shoving them at people at a party and saying, “Give me money!” OTOH, it’s two bucks. So . . .

About a thousand years ago, I put up a poll on e-books. It’s there to your right. Then I forgot about it. I just looked at it again and it’s a flawed poll (I didn’t put all the pricing choices on there because . . .
