Poll- Desert Island

If you were stranded on a desert island (that's DESERT not DESSERT), which would you rather have: chocolate or a book?

My answer is easy- chocolate. I can always write something to read!

I'm pulling "A Janet Evanovich"!

Janet Evanovich is one of my favorite writers (as is Robert B. Parker) and she always has her fans name her next book, so I'm "borrowing" the idea for the third book in my series!

#1 Semi-Sweet Sarcophagus
#2 BonBon Gone Gone
#3 ???? (This is where YOU come in!)

The title should involve a theme of "murder" and "chocolate", but in a humorous way.

The winner of the chosen title will have their name in the book as an accolade and will receive a FREE copy of said book too!

Come on- get those titles rolling in! Good luck!

Semi-Sweet Sarcophagus....Sneak Peak!

Ms. Markens is a geriatric Tammy Faye with an attitude. Lumpy makeup and frozen hairstyle from the 50's aside, she's got more spunk than your average teenager with a new drivers license.

Recently, it was determined that certain, alluring, "words" are hypnotic to readers, compelling them on. Daring words, such as dazzling, just, and miracle were included in this provocative selection. I was shocked! To understand such a vital element in writing would mean unparalleled power. Should writers have such power? More importantly, do we deserve such power? A unique question indeed.

Coming soon to Facebook!
