Congratulations to Carrie Booklover1335, you are the winner of Deliciously Wicked by Robyn DeHart. I’ll be contacting you for your snail mail address or you can email me at skully @ skullybuzz dot com. And thanks everyone, for the help on my bio!

Sorry I’m late, everyone. I was overwhelmed by vacation and needed an extra day to get myself in order. And to download my photos so I could post some for you! For this week’s prize, I’ve got another historical, Duke of Sin by Adele Ashworth. I adore Adele’s historicals! So, post a comment, and I’ll enter you in the drawing for Adele’s book (you must type in your email address to be eligible). I’ll also add you to my newsletter for updates on all the fun stuff and releases, too. I’ll announce the winner on the June 1st blog! Good luck!

Okay, Sedona, Arizona. Wow, it’s gorgeous out there! We stayed at a swank timeshare resort (thanks to my sister!!!). And here’s the view from our back patio at sunset. Would have been a tiny bit better without the net (which you can't see in this photo), but then I might have gotten a golf ball in the head! That almost happened once, the ball whacking the wall about two inches above my forehead. So the net was kinda nice. Okay, I’m geographically challenged, and I didn’t realize Sedona is only a couple of hours south of the Grand Canyon (but I can read road signs). So we took a day trip up there. I haven’t been since I was 12 (which is way too long ago to remember) so I was able to experience that momentous feeling of awe as I stepped out for my first view. And here’s what I saw. Amazing. I know a picture is supposed to be worth a thousand words, but somehow, a photo still doesn’t do the Grand Canyon justice. It’s just too...grand! This last photo is me on top of Cathedral Rock in Sedona. There’s a vortex up there. I’m not exactly sure what a vortex is, something mystical where you’re supposed to feel all these healing powers roll through you. I don’t know if I felt that, but it was awesome and there was a cool wind blowing at the top that just made me feel relaxed and perfect. Note to self, when making a 3.5-hour, 7-mile, 95-degree hike to the top of a huge red rock, wear a hat and carry more than 2 bottles of water. And I know how I’m incorporating Sedona into Hers for the Evening, the second in my “courtesans” books. So look for that next year!

And don’t forget, Fair Game is out on June 2!

Look at that!!!! Pcitures now! (for those of you who saw this post the first time without them!)

Congratulations to Rosemary Gunn, you are the winner of Shadow Runners by Liz Maverick. I’ll be mailing out your prize before I leave on vacation! And I also want to thank Bella Andre for being with us last week! We did a book signing together in Silicon Valley on Saturday!

For this week, I’ve got another historical, Deliciously Wicked by Robyn DeHart. So, post a comment, (you must type in your email address) and I’ll enter you in the drawing for Robyn’s book. I’ll also add you to my newsletter for updates on all the fun stuff and releases, too. I’ll announce the winner on the May 19th blog! Good luck! I’ll be out of town until May 18th so instead of my usual Monday, I’ll be doing the blog on Tuesday, the 19th. I’m going to Sedona with my Mom and sister. It’s a research trip. Honest! You’ll see Sedona featured in Hers for the Evening, coming out probably spring or summer next year.

Okay, for this time, I’m going to ask everyone for their help. I’m working on a new website. You know, everyone’s got to update. And I want to write a new bio. But I’m totally stumped on what to say. So, I thought I’d ask you guys. Maybe do a little Q&A. What would you like to know about the authors whose books you read? Although you guys already know everything this is to know about me since I blab so much on my blog!

Jasmine, Jennifer and JB!
