MuseItUp Is One Today…

… and so is their sister imprint, MuseItHOT!. And it seems only moments since I was polishing up my first submission to send to them, but then time flies when you’re having fun. Anyway, to mark the occasion, they’re having a special one day anniversary sale. Today only, you can get 50 per cent off Muse titles, and with a backlist including everything from hot paranormal romance to a cosy mystery set on the moon, there’s plenty to choose from. But let this cute cat persuade you to hotfoot it to the Muse bookshop (because everything’s better with cute cats)…

It’s Meet The Authors Day…

…on the MuseItHOT! blog. I’m introducing myself to the world at large (yes, I’m sure they’re ready for it), as are many of the other writers in the Muse stable, including Marsha A. Moore, Kat Holmes and Kay Dee Royal. If you’re interested in finding out why writers write erotica and erotic romance, what inspires them, what excites them and just who would like to be Angus Young when she grows up (clue: it’s not me; I’m no good at duck-walking), or if you simply want to see one of the wackiest posts of all time, courtesy of LJ Holmes, head over to the blog and meet the gang.

Muse News

I had a nice little present in my inbox yesterday – this gorgeous cover, courtesy of Muse designer Delilah K. Stephens, for my forthcoming paranormal short story The Face In The Glass:

If you want to know more about what’s happening in that crystal ball, check here for further teasers and updates in the New Year…

Elsewhere, I’ve had a nice little review of my current MuseItHOT! release, Be Good To Your Elf, from Kay Dee Royal, whose erotic werewolf adventure, Big Girls Don’t Cry Wolf, looks like it’s going to be something to get your teeth into. She writes:

What happens when Maddie has to spend Christmas vacation alone in her dorm? She makes her own Christmas as Santa’s helper, and it turns even better when sexy elf Tyler comes on board at the grotto.

Ms. Coldwell introduces the Christmas Spirit when Maddie decides to make the most of her situation. Then Ms. Coldwell captures the Joy of Christmas when Tyler and Maddie figure out there is joy in the holiday after all.

This is a sweet and spicy short-short Christmas Story.

So, if you’re looking for a quick, feel good, hot romance for the holiday season, this one is entertaining. You’ll never think of an Elf the same way again, nor the Magic of the Season.

You can treat your elf at the MuseItHOT! bookstore.  Well, it is Christmas…

Today Is Manic Monday…

…which may always be the case here in the Naughty Corner, but it’s the term that’s been given to do the day everyone apparently does their online shopping. If someone in your life is getting an e-reader for Christmas, or has taken the hints you’ve been dropping that you’d like one, then you’re going to need some good books to load on it. Lea, Litsa and the rest of the lovely MuseItUp/MuseItHOT! team are giving you a helping hand with a special discount on Muse titles. You can get 25% off any purchase from today until December 10th. Use code: HC2010D at checkout in the discount code box before going to Paypal. The current booklist includes sci-fi, paranormal, mystery and young adult titles as well as a sprinkling of naughty and sizzling erotica, so what are you waiting for? Take a browse in the Muse bookstore – and make your shopping a little less manic.

A Tale Of Two Covers

Lovely images have been popping into my inbox recently, reminding me not only that a couple of exciting books are on their way, but that the end of the year is already on its way (and a big hello to everyone who celebrated the Summer Solstice at Stonehenge, which was once memorably described by a friend of mine on being driven past it for the first time as ‘just some rocks’. Wiccans and pagans, if I knew where he was at the moment, I’d point you in his direction…).

First on its way, and keeping in the mood of all things unholy,  is the print version of the Ravenous zombie romance anthology, Hungry For Your Love. It’s been picked up, as I might have already mentioned, by St Martin’s Press, and will be out in time for Hallowe’en looking very much like this:

If that’s a little too scary for you, then let’s turn from naughty to nice, as it were. I’ve just had a short story picked up by a new Canadian e-publisher, MuseItHot, the erotic arm of genre publishers MuseItUp, who offer more mainstream romance novels, along with(among other) sci-fi, mystery and an imprint called Muse Divaz, featuring novels about what, in erotic terms, would be defined as a BBW (Big Beautiful Woman).

Anyway, my story tells what happens when a student finds herself working in Santa’s Grotto alongside a very hot DILF, and it’s behind this beautifully snowy cover, designed by Delilah K Stephens:

Yes, the title of the story is a rather bad pun on one of my favourite Journey songs, Be Good To Yourself, but it simply had to be done. (And NB to all those people who now like Don’t Stop Believin’ because of Glee, Journey aren’t cool. Journey never were cool. Just move along and leave them to those of us who were dancing round our university hall of residence rooms to Escape twenty-ahem years ago.) Right, better go and work on some line edits before I get the urge to listen to Open Arms
