Planning ahead

I know no one wants to be thinking about any of this just yet. Believe me, I’m right there with you. But since I want to do this for my readers I need to be ahead of the game on it. Which means I need to start now to ensure there is time to get everything ready, and out. I am talking about Christmas Cards. Yup, that’s right. If you are interested in getting a card from me this year you can sign up via the Google form I’ve set up to take the requests. To access the form all you need to do is click the image below, or the one on my side bar.


I am also throwing in some extra little gifts for a select number of readers who sign up for a card. Anything from a free ebook* from my backlist, an Amazon Gift Card, to a seasonally appropriate piece of jewelry might be included in with your card. Those who sign up earliest have the greatest likelihood of receiving a gift. Don’t slack off if you want a goody – and do not forget to click the button at the bottom of the form to toss your name into the hat for a gift. Forget that and you won’t be in the running as I only have a set number of gifts to give away.

* If you were chosen to receive a free ebook there will be a little card with a six (6) digit number and my email included in the card. Email me that six (6) digit number, the title of your choice which you can check out on my Bookshelf (Anthologies are NOT included), and the format of your eReader (ie: Kindle, Nook, etc).

Release Day!

TheBass-evernightpublishing-JayAheer2015-finalimageHere we go again folks, it’s release day! I welcome into the world book 2 of the Living Victorious series, The Bass. Slowly we are delving ever deeper into the lives of the band members that make up Victorious. In this book we meet the groups bassist, Shade Benson. Years ago he met a young girl who would become his best friend, and as they grew up together they would fall in love. Then life happened and they were pulled apart. Time passes as it is wont to do, and when they finally meet up again the sparks flicker, and begin a slow hot burn that turns into so much more.

I had the pleasure of working with yet another fabulous Evernight Publishing editor on this story. Pretty sure I’ve met almost all of them by this point, lol! Ms. Audrey was a delight to work with, and helped to smooth out the rough edges as well as tamp down my slight comma addiction to a dull roar. Although I will point out, I did not use as many in this story as in The Rhythm. Maybe I’m starting to learn – at least a little.

Anyway, let’s not delay any longer. Below is the official blurb as found on all the sites that will be selling my latest endeavor into the Rock ‘n’ Roll scene, and also all the links I currently have. Rock on my lovely readers, rock on!


Cateline Lyon has never forgotten the boy she gave her heart to. When they have a chance to reconnect she takes the opportunity. No matter the challenges that may come from his fame, she won’t let him get away again.

Shade Benson always turns to music for comfort. It’s his way of expressing the emotions he never could talk about. Having Cateline back in his life, crazy though it may be, he feels the beginnings of a song lighting up his soul. All for her.

Getting back to normal

TheBass-evernightpublishing-JayAheer2015-finalimageThe vacation is nearly over which means it’s sadly time to get things back to normal. To that end some updates on a number of projects. First on the docket is the release of The Bass, Living Victorious 2. It will be coming out this Thursday, November 12th. And check out this amazing cover by the way-too-talented-to-be-real Jay Aheer. It is jaw droppingly gorgeous naturally because she doesn’t seem to do anything else. And, as always, links will be coming for this as soon as I have them on the day (or earlier if I’m lucky).

Got some work done on book 3 of the series while I was on holidays. I actually had to delete a chunk because it just was not working for me. But now it’s back on track and our lead singer is making some progress. More to come on what struggles he, and his leading lady, will face in their story to get to their HEA soon.

November 29th I have a spot on The Romance Reviews Year End Splash. There are contests, prizes on a weekly basis, and loads of games for everyone to get in on as well as the Grand Prize of a Kindle Fire HD7. You do have to be a member of the site to participate, but it is 100% free to join. So if you’re interested at all, get started today over at TRR.

Last thing of note for the moment is that I have a Christmas story in with Evernight Publishing. Greatest Gift was accepted, the contract has been signed, and it is slated for a December release. Apparently a number of us Evernight authors all had the same thought to write Christmas stories roughly at the same time so there will be a LOT of Christmas goodies coming out this year. No release date yet of course, but details will come as I get them.

And I think that is it. I am off to keep working on LV 3 after refilling my new coffee mug, my own keepsake from the Big Easy. Hope everyone has a fabulous day ~ Moira

Countdown continues…

Airplane in the sky at sunset

Only a few hours remain before I am winging my way south to meet up with my bestie, April Zyon. It is my first real (ie: non-staycation) in years. I can’t wait to get there, see Ms. April again, and have fun in The Big Easy. First order of business…sleep. Second order of business is beignets and cafe au lait at Cafe Du Monde. Then it’s a bunch of wandering, discovering, and photo taking.

In other fabulous news, The Bass, Living Victorious has a release date of November 12th. That’s 2 weeks from now for those scrambling for a calendar. Cover art will be next for me to receive, and hopefully I will be able to share that soon. Very excited to see what the wonderful Jay Aheer might come up with for this one. I gave her the reins on this cover since she did such a fabulous job on my last one – I didn’t want to restrict her creativity one iota. But now I’m all twitchy to see it. Having the cover makes the impending release that much more real.

Well I think that is it. I have a few more random items to toss in my bag in the morning, but otherwise I’m packed and anxious to head off. So I shall bid you adieu for tonight, and head to my bed so I can be up early to finish getting ready and ensuring I have all the actual necessities. Passport, charger for my phone, my purse, keys, you know – the stuff that you walk out the door without and then five steps later remember you need. Have a great week, and there will be many NoLa pictures to come. ~ Moira

Almost there…

Bourbon Street Sign in New OrleansOnly ten more days before I’m officially on holidays in the Big Easy with the lovely April Zyon. I am so ready for this break, and it’ll be a blast to boot. I have no clue what I’m packing beyond the obvious, but I am starting a list – cause I’d really hate to be missing something. Especially since I won’t be able to “run home” and grab it, lol!

In other good news The Bass, Living Victorious 2 first round edits hit my inbox this weekend. I haven’t yet had the opportunity to check to see what might need fixing. I’m hoping that it’s all easy *crossing fingers* fixes without too many major boo-boo’s that need major rewrites. That sort of things suck. I also need to get them done before I leave so that my editor has them while I’m away to do her next look over. Maybe they’ll be back in my box when I return, here’s hoping.

First and foremost though is my current project. It sort of popped up suddenly – like most things involving my crazy muse – and it’s a seasonal story. Which means I need to get this sucker done, and fast. I only have a little more to go, I think. It’s always hard to tell with the muse. She keeps bombing me with details to add in so I never quite know where this is heading, and when it might be completed. It better be soon or it’ll miss the appropriate time to release.

Well I think that’s it for updates at this moment. Will put out more as they come to me. Look for a couple more posts to follow in the next two weeks before I depart. ~ Moira

Get in on the fun

It’s a chilly, dreary Saturday here at home. Great day for staying indoors, and keeping warm. The perfect day to get some writing done as well. Which I am off to do shortly, right after I get a coffee refill, and some lunch. But I thought I’d give some updates before I go get myself busy.

All right I think that’s it. For now I’m off to get that refill, and get down to work. I still have a Christmas story to attempt to finish in time for the coming season.

Evernight Celebrates 5 Years of Publishing!


Thanks to readers like you, Evernight Publishing has grown by leaps and bounds in five years so they’re pulling out all the stops and throwing an extreme BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION BLOG HOP in your honor!

That’s right! It’s Evernight’s birthday but YOU get the presents…


Apple Watch Sport
NEW Kindle Paperwhite
Fitbit Flex
Evernight, Amazon, and ARe Gift Certificates
Plus, each author on the hop will offer his/her own special prize!

I’m honored to celebrate this momentous occasion with Evernight.  Here’s a look at my first Evernight title and my latest release:



Released:  May 7, 2014

Taylor Granger was the one. Veronica “Roni” Malone knew it the first moment she saw him. He made her heart race and her palms sweat. Who cared that they were only in high school. She knew. Heartbroken when life pulled them in different directions, Roni spent the next twenty years trying to fill the gaping hole in her heart. When her beloved Mustang gets towed into Taylor’s mechanic shop, she knew she’d been given a second chance.

Taylor couldn’t believe his eyes. The woman who’d tortured his dreams stood in front of him again after all this time. Roni had rocked his world from day one, and he wasn’t about to let the best thing that ever happened to him get away again.

Back together, the fire sparks and passions burn as they try to find their way back to what they’d left behind and to the realization that their love had always been a forever kind of love.






Released:  August 12, 2015

Jennifer Mitchell has only one goal in mind—she must get an interview with the band, Victorious. It’s a task many journalists have attempted over the last ten years, only to be shot down by the band’s manager. The fact she desperately wants to meet their drummer has absolutely nothing to do with it.

Being the drummer for Victorious allows Lance West to remain out of the spotlight, and still have an important role in creating the music their fans clamor for. Then he meets Jennifer. While she may be focused on an exclusive interview, Lance has other ideas for the sexy woman.

Screaming fans and thunderous applause might warm his blood, but Lance only wants one woman to warm his bed night after night. She is everything to him, the rhythm that soothes his scarred soul, and he’ll do whatever it takes to prove it.



** **** ******* **** **

Evernight Publishing gave me my start as a published author. The company, and its authors are one big family. The support I have received, and witnessed every day is awe inspiring, and I could not ask for a better place to be home to my books. From my first book, to my most recent I have grown as an author thanks to the editors who gently nudged, occasionally using a very big stick, while providing instruction to further my growth. I would not be putting out my soon to release ninth book without everyone’s support, faith, and assistance.


My birthday wish to Evernight, and everyone there:  Is to continue to grow, continue to prosper, and to have many more birthdays in the future. Happy 5th Birthday Evernight!

Autumn has arrived

Homemade Dark Hot Chocolate with Marshmallows and Cinnamon

The day has been a roller coaster of weather. Woke to chilly damp autumn, then we managed about an hour of sunny with a few fluffy clouds, and we are currently back into fully overcast with more rain threatening. Fall has arrived in full force here, and gloomy damp chilly days are in the future. I think it may be time to stock up on the hot chocolate (mainly for the excuse to throw some rum in).

But it does provide a rather nice backdrop for writing. In between plotting where my Living Victorious (LV) book 3 will be going I’m working on a Christmas story. It’s been coming in bursts so whenever the mood strikes to get more down I have been. It’s definitely not your “normal” Christmas story by any means. But I’ve never done that whole “normal” thing well. I prefer to color outside the lines, dance with the Devil, and generally thumb my nose at “convention”. It’s a little moody, has it’s moments where emotions run high, and has a bit of off the wall humor too. It won’t be a long book by any means, but I think it will be a fun one for my readers.

In between the plotting, and reading I’ve been cleaning. Mainly when the muse stopped talking or wandered off to look at shiny objects. I have found that the cleaning seems to get her back on track. Thankfully rather quickly today because I didn’t actually want to do any cleaning, lol! I did all the major weekly stuff yesterday, today was mostly things like cleaning the fridge drawers, and shelves. Boring crap that wrenched the creativity back on track. And when that last failed to work I’ve been watching some S.O.A. that I downloaded a while back but never got around to watching.

Now I need to go scrounging for the makings of dinner, do some more writing, and get in some more plotting for LV3. I hope everyone had a great weekend, and has a lovely week. Tomorrow is Monday – make the best of it and do nothing that can be proven. Have a great one! ~ Moira


Coffee, coffee, more coffee

Isolated icon of coffee cup made from words

It is a chilly, dreary Sunday but a great day for writing. I’m busy working on book 3 of the Living Victorious series and attempting to mainline caffeine as quickly as I can manage. This is Jeremy’s book, and the little shit is driving me insane. Not in a good way most of the time either. He is a stubborn character I will admit, giving me enough to work with for a few paragraphs and then it’s much like pulling teeth to get anything more from him.

Thankfully his leading lady in the book is the chatty sort. She tends to be on the side of “over sharing”. Not so sure that’s a good thing, but it’s an interesting counterbalance to Jeremy. I have this feeling that once they begin to interact on a more continuous basis, outside their brief interactions at meetings currently, that the sparks will really start to fly. Should be fun.

Not much else to share at this moment. I do have a vague idea for a potential Christmas story, but it hasn’t really gelled into much yet. It has a Paranormal flair to it which I’m liking, now if only the muse wouldn’t be quite so stingy with the details maybe I can get it written. LOL! Well, that’s all for the moment. We’ll talk again soon I’m sure. For now I need to refill my mug, and get back to work messing around with Jeremy’s perfectly orderly life. ~ Moira
