Celebrate with me!

I’m having a birthday birthday and a book birthday!

First, my actual birthday is Sunday the 22nd, but I’m celebrating with sushi and cake on Saturday because the sushi place is closed on Sundays. I don’t get sushi very often, so it’ll be a real treat for me. The cake is totally for the kids’ sake. Totally. *uncrosses fingers from behind my back*

Since you can’t be here to celebrate with me (but only because you wouldn’t all fit in my kitchen), I’ve decided to drop the prices on the first two books in both of my series!

The Magician’s Curse: A Paranormal Romance (Book 1) is available for 99 cents until January 31st on Kindle, Kobo, Nook, and Apple.

The Magician’s Blood: A Paranormal Romance (Book 2) is available for 99 cents until January 21st on Kindle, Kobo, Nook, and Apple.

Saddled: A Romantic Comedy (Book 1), a forbidden office/male stripper romance, is available for 99 cents until January 31st on Kindle, Kobo, Nook, and Apple.

Rocked: A Romantic Comedy (Book 2), a best friend’s brother/male stripper romance, is available for 99 cents until January 21st on Kindle, Kobo, Nook, and Apple.

You won’t get the two Book 2s for less than 99 cents, and they may never go on sale again, so grab them while you can!

My other reason to celebrate is also half the reason I’ve been so busy lately.

It’s a new book!

I’m so excited to release this one. I loved writing it, I fell in love with the adorable characters, and I really never wanted the story to end. In fact, as I edited it, I almost doubled the word count.

For the first time on my blog, I present to you the third book in the “Once a Week at Woody’s” series, Stroked!

A stripper and a lawyer walk into a bar …

Casper thinks of Woody O’Flanagan’s Pub as home, but he has a shadier stripping job to supplement his income. One he’d quit if he could just sell his artwork. Enter Tristan, the handsome lawyer who’s itching to see Casper’s etchings…

Tristan is an up-and-comer at his law firm, but his speech impediment and sidetracked dreams are holding him back in career and love. Until he meets Casper, a gorgeous stripper who understands every word he says…

When Casper and Tristan are caught in a compromising position by the police due to Casper’s questionable job, the first thing out of Tristan’s mouth ensures their arrest. Getting thrown in jail teaches them that it’s time to follow their passions. But will their passions include each other?

Opposites attract in this hilarious and steamy m/m romance, the third standalone book in Linda G. Hill’s “Once a Week at Woody’s” series.

Grab it now!

Author’s note: This story includes a parent with dementia.

Stroked: A Romantic Comedy (Book 3) is available for pre-order. Buy it now on Kindle or Kobo (Nook and Apple to follow) and have it delivered to your device on January 31st!

Thanks so much for celebrating with me!


#SoCS – Allspice

Thyme and time again, every week, it seems, I post a prompt with a bit of an idea in my head of what I’m going to write, but when I finally sit down, it’s something else. This week, I’m writing rather gingerly (in a way), because I’m trying to do it around all the other things I should be doing for tomorrow’s birthday party dinner.

I invited friends and family to cumin join us, and have already bought cards for myself and my mother to give to Alex (a cardamom), but I still have to go buy a few presents. And wrap them. Which of course will make them all parsley. (That made me laugh.)

Although he doesn’t eat (my son is tube-fed), Alex likes to choose what everyone else wants, and if it’s something that tastes good to him, he’ll have some. For tomorrow, he’s requested “big chicken,” which means a whole barbecued chicken from the grocery store. And a Spiderman cake for dessert, which I really should order soon. Mustardiness rule my life all the time? I need to follow my own sage advice: don’t procrastinate! I need to sumac myself upside the head with it once in a while.

Whatever happens, I’m sure tomorrow’s dinner will be peppered with love, free of a salt (ouch, that was a stretch), and anise day all around. In fact, it may just be a macing. And dinner itself is sure to be savory.

Fall is when it gets chili outside.
