Come Visit Me

I'm guest blogging at Paranormality http://paranormalityuniverse.blogspot.com this week with the topic of Eight Rules For Writing Paranormal Romance. Feel free to add to the rules :-)

Oh, and I am offering a prize at Paranormality, stop by and see how you can enter.

And to whet your appetite for Heartstone (alas, I still don't have a release date), here's a tiny excerpt.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The trees grew in an odd triad formation, three boles rooted companionably together. The color of burnt cork, they were festooned with long, narrow leaves that glistened with a silvery aqua color and rustled in the light breeze. The central bole of each tree cluster hosted branches laden with tiny green berries.

As she trudged onward, she realized the small lizard-birds favored those berries both on the branches and where they had fallen on the forest fl oor. Keriam thought the little creatures resembled nothing less than wildly colored blossoms. And while
they fl uttered like busy little bees, they didn’t appear to nest or roost in the trees. She watched, curious in spite of herself, as one ruby-colored creature waddled to a slightly raised patch of earth then flipped head over heels into its burrow.

The berry-laden triad trees weren’t alone. Others stood, tall and majestic, with showy blue-green crowns that rippled in the sky. Still more were squat, troll-like trees with curling branches and finger-sized, pea soup-colored leaves. Lichen and moss and toadstools the size of her hand grew near the bases and around fallen branches. Under the leafy canopy, the light shone emerald and gold, dappled with diamond patches of light. Scattered among the shadows and brilliantly lighted patches were fl owers shaded from not-quite-red to metallic indigo.
