Despite a Skinny Neck...


Looks like beautiful Mr. Law won out for best brooding look. Kinda surprised cause all of the comments were leaning toward Bettany...however, numbers don't lie and Law kicked hiney in the actual poll. He garnered 73% of the votes.


My critique partner, Erin, over at Hold on to Your Bloomers! Said he had a 'skinny neck' and that got me looking at all of his photos...he totally wears a scarf, upturned collars, and other neck obscuring materials...so she might be on to something.


Still, I'm sticking with what the ladies said and using his physical archetype as inspiration for the brooding anti-hero in my WIP. Its a Gothic romance and I'm having a blast writing it...





In other news...I'm going to be on a few Blog Talk Radio shows in a month. My debut novel, Purple Knot, releases on June 3rd...Oh my gosh...is that right?  
Okay...deep breath...I'm alright. 

I'm going to be out and about.  I've set up a Purple Knot Blog Tour page and would love for you all to take a look. I've set up a list of giveaways that I hope you all attend.

I'm also taking part in The Romance Reviews Sizzling Summer Reads Event in June. For all of you romance fans out there, there will be tons of authors doing chats, having contests, and giving away books! What better way to kick off summer than to win some books for great beach reading?


Have a fantabulous weekend. Now...Go Write!
