So tonight I was writing a love scene, and I just wasn’t feeling it. And I realized that in all my anal little Itunes playlists, I didn’t have a Love Scenes playlist. So I quickly threw one together. I used mostly existing songs and paid for a few I didn’t have that are sexy.

Here’s a peek at what I’m listening to when I’m writing hot!

You Make Me Feel Like A Natural Woman Aretha Franklin
Gimme More Britney Spears
Brown Sugar D’Angelo
Quiero Saber Gipsy Kings
Knock Me A Kiss Louis Jordan
Fade Into You Mazzy Star
Quando, Quando, Quando Michael Bublé & Nelly Furtado
Closer Nine Inch Nails
Feelin’ Love Paula Cole
The Sweetest Taboo Sade
Possession Sarah McLachlan
Viva Forever Spice Girls
Careless Whisper Wham!

Yes, feel free to mock my Wham and Spice Girls songs. Anything you can add to the list? I’m always looking to expand and know there’s a ‘duh!’ song out there!

So my friend has leukemia, and her meds have stopped working. If they ever really were working. She needs a bone marrow transplant, as do many many other people on this planet. And these life-saving transplants are possible with the help of donors. How do you become a donor? Or how do you know if you qualify to donate? http://www.marrow.org by registering on this site, you’re in a searchable database for people in need of a transplant. It makes them easier to find a match!

Retro flashback!

My friend and I met in kindergarten and have been friends ever since. My friend with leukemia (a mother of two) is the one standing right next to me. Can you guess where I am? :D

It’s funny how life works, where I may have drifted from some of those on the log (well, one is my brother, he couldn’t drift too far!), I’ve reconnected with all of them over the years and they’re my close friends again. One of those girls beta reads every one of my books!

So I’ll leave you with that thought today. Consider being a bone marrow donor! And an organ donor if you’ve never done it, but that’s separate!

Well, I had a fabulous signing on Friday night with many other author friends! The turn out was great and I loved seeing so many people show up (many of my friends too!) I was only sorry I ran out of books! Here’s a couple of cute pics from the night! Thanks to all who came and to those who I had the opportunity to sign with!

Me speaking briefly and reading the warning label on Need Me, my upcoming Aphrodisia release!

Seriously. Don’t believe me? Swallowing can get you pregnant. Sure there’s a lot of other crazy factors that need to happen…

A woman with a birth defect that left her without a vagina still got pregnant after she was stabbed shortly following oral sex with her partner. Doctors say the bittersweet story shows the incredible survival of sperm.

Read the whole story here.

In other news, I sold a short erotic story to Cobblestone Press entitled Bad Girls DO. This is for their ‘Wicked’ line and it is indeed pretty darn wicked ::whipitgood:: So look for that in the future!
