Friday Fun Facts: Hero Worship Contest Starting Soon!

Well, it's February, and that means time for Valentine's Day and my First Annual Facebook Hero Worship Contest!

From February 11 - 18th I'll be holding a "Hero Worship" contest. Every day that week, I'll post an excerpt from either my published books OR my works-in-progress...spotlighting all my wonderful heroes, of course! All the posts will be up on my Facebook Fan Page, so you'll have to "Like" me over there if you haven't yet. Then, all you have to do at the end of the week is email me which hero was your favorite. That's it! I'll choose 2 winners from everyone who emails (yup, count 'em - two!) to receive their choice of any of my ebooks AND a $10 Amazon gift certificate. Plus you get to drool over some romance heroes just in time for Valentine's Day...

Hope you'll join me :)

Writers' Wednesday: Battling Online Pirates

Hey writer friends, here's a link you might want to check out, especially if you're e-published and you've found some online scoundrels posting your ebooks for "free". Yeah, those e-pirates are awfully tough to track down, but is a site that will do it for you. For $15/month, the site scans the Internet daily to look for illegally posted "shared" files that violate copyrights. They'll send you an email every day, and then you can have them send an official DMCA letter to have the file removed (the monthly fee covers 60 "takedowns" although you can pay for more).

So far I'm pleased with the site. It only found 15 illegally shared files of mine the first day, and those were taken down within 24 hours. I'll probably continue with them until/unless there's not a need...which, unfortunately, may not be anytime soon, knowing piracy sites. But at least there's something authors and other artists can do to protect our copyrighted works. We've certainly worked hard enough to produce them!

**Note: email me at for the email link that will take you to the $15/month fee, otherwise I think it's $25/month if you go straight through the main Muso site.

Monday Mentionables: New Banners!

I have two new banner ads today, courtesy of the design staff over at The Romance Studio. Click here to see the banner ad and click here to see the headliner ad, featuring my 3 "One Night" books.

I LOVE the second one, especially! Don't you? And if you check out The Romance Studio, you'll see it live, starting later today!
