Deep down, in many ways, I’m still the shy, quiet Catholic schoolgirl from the NJ suburbs who never misbehaves. But when it comes to my writing, all bets are off because I love using naughty words. I was so honored to be invited to read on October 3 on the Lower East Side at Between the Covers, the erotic reading series founded by Lori Perkins. I had a total blast reading chapter 12 from BREATHLESS FOR HIM because it involves the best of both worlds, and for those of you who’ve read it, you know EXACTLY what I mean!
I had my first reading at Lady Jane’s Salon on August 4. The readings are held the first Monday of every month at Madame X Lounge on Houston Street in the Village. I had a total BLAST! I read the butcher shop scene from BREATHLESS FOR HIM when Davison comes to get Allegra back, and part of the next scene at the café. Some of my Forever Romance family came to see me read, and it was so wonderful having them there! 2 of the authors in the lineup with me were my good friends, Katana Collins and K.M. Jackson. And the other author was none other than NY Times bestselling author of WALLBANGER, the awesome Alice Clayton, who I totally fangirled over when she signed RUSTY NAILED for me. Everyone reassured me they couldn’t see me shaking, thank God, because I was shaking-like a damn leaf! But it won’t stop me, because I’ll be reading again there in March from DEVOTED TO HIM!
So, while I was at RWA, BREATHLESS FOR HIM broke into the Top 50 Best Sellers on Amazon UK in all 3 of its categories!! I was BLOWN AWAY!!! THANK YOU, UK!!
