Trying to Keep Toes Warm! (@KaceyHammell) #Writing #Winter #TopPick

Good morning everyone!
As my topic states, I’m trying to keep my tootsies warm in this cold weather. Winter has been brutal with the cold temperatures. And normally I wouldn’t mind that, however, here in Ontario the strange temperatures are most frustrating. We have gone from bone chilling days to milder days (people have actually worn shorts on these days — only in Canada!!), and it’s the back and forth that is difficult to deal with. It seems the drastic changes are the cause of many colds and people don’t know how to dress from one day to the next. But they should know better. Canadian winters are not the same every year and they can be tough to get through. While my toes are cold and I haven’t gone more than a day or two without a cozy sweater on, I love the fact that it’s Canada. It’s home. I could do without the treacherous driving on snow / freezing rain days. I usually stay home those days but I worry for others who are out and about, trying to make it to work and such.

Writing news — “Payback’s a Bitch” released at Evernight Publishing since last time I was here.  And I received news this morning that it is a TOP PICK at The Romance Reviews!! YAY!! 😀

I am also on my last read through/proofing of “Guarding His Anchor” (Book 2: Canadian Muscle).  That will be coming soon at Evernight Publishing as well! I haven’t heard about a release date just yet, but I can’t wait to get this in readers hands.

I have submitted a previously released menage story to a different publisher. I hope to have news about that soon. This story is one that I enjoyed writing very much and can’t wait to write another menage soon.

 

Be sure to check out my latest release, “Payback’s A Bitch” Available at these stores ~  https://books2read.com/u/mV7Xz6

 

 

 

 

 

Have a wonderful weekend ahead!!

I’ve Been Nominated!

The Romance ReviewI’m happy dancing around the house right now, because my erotic romance novella, Off the Shelf, has been nominated in The Romance Reviews awards for Best Book of 2012 in the Best Erotic Romance – Contemporary Romance. I’m sure some of the other Birdies are dancing around too, because they’ve been nominated in various categories, too – you’ve got my vote, ladies!

Anyway, yes, I’m asking for your votes because I’m up against some seriously tough competition and every single vote counts. And I’ve never won anything before *sniffs* 🙁 You’ll need an account at The Romance Reviews and also need to be signed in to vote.

So, if you’re so inclined, head here now and vote for the Birdies 🙂 Your support means a great deal.

Off the ShelfAnd here’s a snippet from Off the Shelf, so if you haven’t read it, you’ll know just how adorable the male lead is:

Annalise made a beeline for the travel section, but just before she got there she was stopped in her tracks. Impeding her entrance to the aisle was a man. And, judging by the flutter of her heart and the heat coming to her face, a very attractive one. Annalise watched him as she waited for her rational thoughts to catch up with what her body was telling her.

Seconds later, it became apparent they were in total agreement. The man – who, judging by his attire, was a member of staff – was indeed cute. He looked to be around Annalise’s age. He was taller than her, even though she wore heels, and he had a slim build. His long curly hair was tied back, and something about the way he was cradling a book in his hands made Annalise suspect she’d found a kindred spirit. He wasn’t the usual tall, muscular type she went for, but she hadn’t had much luck with those guys, anyway, so looking at someone a little different couldn’t do any harm, could it?

She continued towards the travel section before someone saw her acting like some kind of weird bookshop voyeur. Annalise figured the guy was new here. She came into this shop often enough to know the staff, and she’d never seen him before. She’d definitely have remembered him.

He looked up as she drew close, a pair of intelligent green eyes behind dark-rimmed glasses adding to the guy’s bookish appeal. His lips curved into a smile and he shuffled forward to let her by. Annalise gave a polite nod of thanks, moved past him and put her bag down at her feet.

Standing next to him as they both perused the shelves, Annalise caught the scent of his cologne. She had no idea what it was or how to describe it, but she did know it smelt totally divine. Almost mouth watering. Could this guy be any more appealing?

Reaching forward, Annalise grabbed a book from the shelf in order to distract herself before she got into trouble for sexual harassment. The two of them flicked pages in silence for a few minutes, until the quiet was suddenly broken by the sound of his voice.

‘Do you know,’ he said, quietly, as though they were in a library, rather than a bookshop, ‘I’ve quite forgotten myself. I’m supposed to be working here, and here I am browsing books and completely ignoring the customers.’

He closed the book he was looking at and slid it back into place on the shelf. Turning to Annalise, he held out a hand. ‘I’m Damien. I’m so sorry, I’ve only just started working here and I seem to keep forgetting that part. I blame the books. They distract me.’
