Mid Week Tease: Sin Pointe’s magical webmaster, Big Ben!

MWTease15Welcome to Mid Week Tease!

I’m thinking of the number 70 right now. Why? Because that’s how many days there are until San Diego’s Comic Con 2015 happens! I love me some Comic Con but the last time I’d been able to score tickets, or as we call it a badge, had been 2010. That was a good year. I had the honor of sitting in on Andy Whitfield’s final Comic Con panel. Such a beautiful soul. Every year I’d try again to get registered online and within minutes, it would sell out before I had the chance. Sadness. But then I found out I could apply for a special badge, one for creative professionals which included authors! I just had to submit an appropriate piece of work I’d created and wait to see if the magic would happen. Guess what? It did! Today I’m teasing you from that very special book, Sin’s Haven (A Sin Pointe Novel, #3) about a quirky, gentle giant of a webmaster for a little band you might have heard of called Sin Pointe. I owe Big Ben, big time. He so sexy and sweet and in a bit of a confusing tight spot…

He shook his head, trying to understand last night. The problem was, his pride might be swelling on one hand but on the other, he felt like a huge ass wipe. He’d slept with a woman whose name he couldn’t remember and oh yeah, he didn’t do that kind of thing. It wasn’t anywhere in his nature. Jaxon and Stefan made women melt at the mere thought of the things those guys could do to them. Unless a chick was super into a personalized website or slick Facebook banner, Ben didn’t have much woo factor to offer. And a one-night-stand-to-blow-your-mind was definitely not on his menu. He wouldn’t have slept with Erby on their first date and he’d known her for six years! Okay, maybe he would have last night… Continue reading

My Favorite Cross Country Road Trip Pictures

I’m back in Virginia!  Here are a few of my favorite pictures from the 5,200 miles I just drove home to San Diego, CA and back.  It was the best road trip ever, feeling so free to just get in my car and drive from one coast to the other.  I love you, USA.  You are beautiful and diverse and nothing beats seeing you in person.  And a big ole thanks to Casey E. James for his song, “Drive”, which we played every morning as we laid rubber to the road.

I knew it would be a fun trip when this was the first vehicle I ended up following behind leaving Virginia.  Had to learn who Justin Moore was.

One of my first jaw drops came from visiting Grandma’s in Arkansas.  Yes, that big red can belongs to her, 77 and young!

The sunrise doesn’t get much prettier than this one peach-i-fying the sky over New Mexico.

These are San Diego Style Rolled Tacos.  They make me a happy girl.  I miss them already.

It definitely did not suck getting to see The Vampire Diaries cast up close and personal.

Cheers Y’all!  This Disneyland Mint Julep is for Grandma and her Mardi Gras friends up in heaven.

Because sometimes you just have to suck it up, put on that bikini and get your Sherrilyn Kenyon on at the beach!

New musical discoveries make my heart sing.  Meet the gentlemen of Steam Powered Giraffe.  Wish I could describe them to you but I think this photo says it all.

A mermaid’s got to visit her native waters in Cabrillo at the Tidepools.

The new and improved route back to Virginia via Ohio to see Casey James play.

Just us, the truckers and the sun rising over Amarillo, Texas as we head east.

Can’t imagine a nighttime swim gets any better than this as the moon glowed above in the sky of Hendersonville, Tennessee.

Guitars are made to be rocked.  The Casey E. James band made these ones sing during their show in Belpre, Ohio, our last stop before arriving home to Virginia.

That’s it!
