Author Nita Wick

My good friend, Nita Wick has an awesome book out that has a new cover. I just have to post it because I loved the book and the cover is sexy! She writes hot romance, but not erotic in case you are interested.

Be sure to check it out at The cover might not have changed yet, but you can get the book there.

Also, for other types of downloads of the book if the Kindle is not your reader of choice.  You can always find it at
The Wagonmaster by Nita Wick at Freya's Bower, a historical romance, erotica ebook : Freya's Bower
I hope you will check it out. She has some other free and short stories on Amazon as well.

Putting the Office Back Together

So the office got a makeover and it is finally ready to be put back to rights. It's a long slow process though as we put ceramic tile down and all that tile dust is on EVERYTHING!!!  Lots and lots of dusting and washing things down.

Here are the initial pictures...

Notice that the walls are a cheerful net soothing shade of green. I like green :-)  The ceramic tile looks great and will be so much easier to clean. I have to get a plastic floor mat to put under my chair though.
So next comes washing down the floor one more time then dusting and washing down the shelves and other furniture that belongs in there.  I have copies of my books for give aways and other goodies to give away that I keep on the shelves. I also have some favorite books and some research books on the shelves.
Here are some pictures of what it looks like now. I still have some organizing to do and another table that goes in there next to the file cabinet, but it's closer to being finished.

And this is one of my many muses. Little. He's very old and bony, but helps me by keeping the back of my office chair in place. I'm sure without him it would be beating me when I try to write.
I'll be back writing tomorrow and then on Sunday, it will be back to cleaning and organizing once again.

The Ghost Riders - Book Three

I decided to write book three of The Ghost Riders this month. Ajax and Murdock were speaking to me. Ginger is going to make them earn her affections. When Jessie and her guys, Vernon and Rhodes settle down in Reo to build their home, she begs Ginger to move back so they can be together. Since she believes that Ajax and Murdock are heading back to Las Vegas where they were from, she agrees. She's looking forward to having her best friend close by again and starting over.

Guess what? Ajax and Murdock weren't going back home to stay. They were merely tying up loose ends with their charter there so they could transfer to Reo into Dominic and Reece's MC. Wonder how that is going to go over with Ginger when she finds out?

Ginger is going to live up to her name, as in being feisty where the guys are concerned. I'm looking forward to learning more about these three characters as I go.

I'm also gearing up for May's Romantic Times Booklovers Convention in Kansas City. Have part of a basket started and trying to decide what books to include in it. Anyone going this year? I hope you'll stop by and see me either in club RT or at the Giant Book Expo. I'll post times and locations closer to the day.

Off to write some more before bedtime. I'm going car shopping tomorrow. Not sure if I'll actually jump into a new one or not, but need to consider it.

I'm leaving you with a little something to look at. This is how I see Ajax in my head. He's a mixture of these two guys. Intense.

Decisions - Decisions

How do you decide what to write next when you have so many options? I have several different series going now and picking which one to write on next drives me crazy.

  •             The Men of The Border Lands
  •             The Men from Space Station One
  •             The Ghost Riders
  •             Riverbend, Texas Heat
  •             Knights in Black Leather
Then there is The Protector Series
Charlotte’s Master, which is Butch’s story from Nina’s Neighbor


I also have a few new series that I have started working on

  • One features shape shifting wolves
  • One is based in the Tennessee Mountains

So what do I do? Flip a coin or draw names or close my eyes and point? One thing I do know, I have to get started on it soon. The days will slip past before I know it. As soon as I decide on the next book, I’ll let you all know.
