Coming soon from Ellora's Cave...

Blog buddy and fellow EC author, Christine, has just announced the July 20th release date for her book The Bond That Ties Us. She's posted an excerpt on her blog. Go check it out. I'll wait.

... (what are you waiting for? Go!)

... (la-la, tra la, dee-dum-dee-dum, doo doo, too doo)

... *filing nails*

And, you're back. Don't forget to download The Bond... on July 20th.

Reading Christine's excerpt reminded me that I have yet to post the blurb for Destiny by Design, my own little creation that comes out on MAY 18th.

Destiny by Design

Interior designer Ellis Strathmore has been chosen to compete in the Oak Ridges Development Competition, along with a handful of other designers—including her former boss and nemesis, Cynthia Travers. With the deadline just weeks away, the design teams are under intense pressure to finish. A relative novice known for her unusual approach to decorating, Ellis is determined to prove her talent, artistry and professionalism when creating the perfect home office.

One week into the Oak Ridges Competition and Simon Callon would happily trade Callon & Son Construction for a string of donut shops. Tools and supplies keep mysteriously disappearing and two of the designers are making his life miserable. He’d worked with Cynthia Travers before and knew how to handle her demands, but quirky Ellis Strathmore, with her uncanny ability to both annoy and arouse him, has Simon questioning his normally solid judgment.

Ellis and Simon clash over paint colors, work schedules and cabinets, but they can’t deny the sexual chemistry that’s building between them. The perfect palette for passion comes together with a brush of danger, tones of teasing banter and a touch of naked painting in Destiny by Design.

Available from Ellora's Cave in only EIGHT more days (not that I have the countdown written on my calendar in red ink. That's SO something Christine would do *eye roll*)

And finally, my mom arrives on Thursday morning for an eagerly anticipated visit so I won't be as regular around the blogosphere. I'll be lurking, but not posting. Miss me y'all, okay?



Wonderful excerpt, Christine! Can't wait to read.

And Wylie, you're cheating us. Where the hell is YOURS? =)

*does the snoopy dance*

Thanks Wylie! I've only been this excited three times before (wedding and the birth of each daughter). LOL I guess this is the same as having another child. :)

And I can't wait to read yours!! Excerpt, excerpt, excerpt!!

(only 72 days to go...)

Sounds like a good read. Enjoy your visit with your mom.


I'm not sure if you've been tagged with this meme, Wylie . . . if you have then just ignore this. If not . . . well . . .

Rhian tagged ME so now I've tagged you. You need to write 8 wonderful things about you and then tag 8 people! =)

You mean you won't be in Toronto on Saturday? Or posting much? Rats!

And I'm with the rest about Destiny by Design - as I said over on Christine's blog, I'm getting this long list of 'must buy' books now and yours and hers are topping them.


SIXTEEN DAYS AWAY? I thought it was nine!

*Red frowning suspiciously*
I think I'M the one who's REALLY counting here. =) LOL!

Wylie Kinson said...

Red - OOPS! Guess it helps to be looking on the right calendar day :) *chagrin*

Leah - I'll be there on Sat, but only for the first hour. See you then!
