Come See Me

Getting a concussion may have knocked me down and made me push back my release dates, but it didn’t put me out of the game. So if you’ve been wanting to come and meet me and have me sign your books, this is where I’m going to be!

My first Author Appearance will be at SASS18:

SASS18

This signing is smaller and more intimate than some of the big ones. So if big crowds aren’t your thing, this is the one for you. For more information go to: https://www.facebook.com/events/406848246430994/

I will also be at Sweet Virginia Breeze!

ROMCON18

I will be a featured author at this event. Come have lunch with me. For more information: http://www.romcon.com/interest-list

I am really excited about traveling to both of these book signing weekend events and bringing my paranormal romances. Hope to see you there,

You never know what the Universe is going to throw at you. In my case, a brick wall, literally. In truth it was more like I was thrown at the wall. I fell and hit my head. A quick trip to the emergency room and a CAT scan later and the diagnosis was “A concussion”.

I’ve never researched concussions before. I had no idea that you should stay in a dark room and limit all stimulation for ten days or that you shouldn’t use anything with a screen.

Even now, six weeks later, I have problems with screens and getting over stimulated. My whole life has been put on hold, so my brain can recover. I’m happy to say, that I am better, but not well.

To my fans, who are expecting a book out this month, it’s been pushed back. I’m not sure exactly when “Katya” will be coming out, but I hope before summer is done.

I’m learning to be patient with my limitations and myself. I hope you can be patient with me as well.

If you are so moved, I am open to all prayers and healing thoughts as I recover.

Until next time,

Caryn

Katya

Book One of the Volkov Family Chronicles

Katya Volkov is all grown-up and working in New York City. She has the unfortunate title of “Ice Princess” because she can’t get past friendship with a man. The only one she ever loved, Illarion Lebedev, left Siberia when she was sixteen and she hasn’t seen him since. Unwilling to return to Russia and a life in a pack where women are expected to mate and have babies, preferably girls. She has worked hard for the last four years at Sunrise Advertising. Now a vice-president, she’s finally accomplished a level of success she’s comfortable with. But what does success really mean when you’re all alone at the top?

Illarion Lebedev has secretly watched over Katya since she was in college. He’s proud of her accomplishments. Now that his plans are coming together and he’s the new CEO of Sunrise Advertising, he’s ready to finally claim his mate. But wooing the “Ice Princess” will take more than his good looks and social position. It will take a love strong enough to thaw her wounded heart.

 

Daffodils, Bamboo, and…a Book Release?

daffodils

The warmer weather, here in the south, is welcome. The daffodils are already gone, and the rain has held off enough for hubby and I to do much-needed property repairs. A huge blow down of dead bamboo that grows in the no-man’s land between our house and a 4 story Condo building, had fallen on our new fence…yeah, the fence previously smashed to bits by a huge tree during Hurricane Matthew. We had the fence replaced last fall.

We pushed the bamboo onto our property, carted them up the hill to the driveway, and now need to cut them into 5ft parcels and bundle them together so the town will cart them away. It’s a lot of work, but their combined weight could have easily brought down the fence. It also opens the lane by our fence where deer used to trot by. With the 30-40ft bamboo laying on the fence, the path was blocked.

Cleaning up and protecting our property keeps up the value, should we ever need to sell. Are you making a list of things that need fixing? Even apartment-dwellers must plan to ‘Spring Clean.’ Dusting, polishing, straightening, and decluttering leads to a great feeling.

 

Another great feeling? The release of another book!

p.s. Did I mention the main characters are aided by different ghostly voices?

 

 

Book Blurb for 

With Every Breath-An Opportunity Falls NovelWith Every Breath

The author has used her EMT, Firefighter, and 9-1-1 background to create this story about a quirky college town, an injured hiker and his beautiful rescuer. Assumptions pull the new lovers apart. Barely surviving two stalkers, a murder on campus, heartache, and hypothermia, their race up a mountain during a snowstorm keeps the pace rolling in this hot, spicy adventure-filled romance.

DRAGONS ON MY MIND by Paranormal Author Nancy Lee Badger

dragons and castle

 

SPARK

Dragons are always on my mind. Why? There is something elusive about these creatures, mainly because most peopSMOKEle consider them mythological or flights of fantasy. However, many times a fairy tale is rooted in truth.

 

Why do people believe a creature lives in Scotland’s Loch Ness? Why do the Chinese revere dragons in many of their celebrations? Why are so many books written about dragons? Why is HBO’s Game of Thrones (based on books written by George R. R. Martin) more exciting whenever the dragons fill the screen?

When stories that include dragons fill my head, I write, and create characters that follow a story line that-I hope-entertains my readers.

SMOLDER

This is why my latest series is such a hit. In SPARK, and SMOKE, and SMOLDER, in my Clan of Dragons series, three brothers-actual dragons-have learned that they can shift their forms into various creatures. The problem? No females. Follow them with their quests to find mates. And, if you are curious about why dragons can ‘shift’, read Shimmer: The Beginning.

Happy Groundhog Day Writing Tips

groundhog family

As winter plods along, I feel more and more like I should stick my head in a cave and forget about writing. Depending on whether or not the groundhog sees his shadow, winter is still hanging around. Blah!

We moved from SNOWY New Hampshire to the SUNNY south to avoid snow, ice, and single-digit winters. Along came Winter Storm Inga on January 17th (yep, they now NAME them, like they do the hurricanes). The snow fell fast and furious. Everything here in Raleigh, North Carolina STOPPED! Many mornings we awoke to 9 degrees or 14 degrees F temps.

Lucky for me, I write from home, but for some reason I didn’t. I filed months of papers, got my taxes ready for the CPA, worked on volunteer organization paperwork…the frigid temperatures were a good excuse.

NO MORE EXCUSES!

An author can not make money without writing. I blog, I host authors on my blog, and I am working on several books at once. I have agents looking over two different manuscripts, a book coming out with Soul Mate Publishing this coming summer, and I have another book in the works for maybe a March release.

So, bundle up, charge up your laptops, down some coffee, nibble chocolates, and enjoy what’s left of winter.

Unlock your skills!

Happy Hogmanay 2018!

banner-3004353_1280Hogmanay…a strange word to this American writer.

“What did he say?” I said to a friend the first time I heard the word. Until recently, I mistakenly assumed it was the Celtic term for Christmas.

Nope!

Hogmanay is a celebration of the new year, as close to our ‘watching the ball drop’ festivities and the Rose Bowl Parade wrapped up in one lovely holiday. So, I am taking a moment to wish you all a very HAPPY HOGMANAY and a very, very HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Just to wrap-up my activities in 2017, here are what books I released:
