Bad Bunnies!

Okay, I had one tomato plant in the ground (paste, thanks for asking.) One. Yesterday I went out to my garden (4′ x 4′ at the moment, but there’s still time to grow) and wouldn’t you know it, but it had been nibbled to the ground. Bad bunnies! The only good news is they left the peppers (sweet yellow, thanks for asking) alone. For now.

This week I’m guest blogging at Lust in Time (3 more hours today) and Tote Bags ‘n’ Blogs and Romance Novel TV on the 14th. Yeah, I accidentally double-booked Thursday. Sigh.

Bunnies and a Cover Contest

I spent the evening weeding my garden (curse you, hackberry tree seedlings!) and discovered that it’s overflowing with bunnies. Two have taken up residence in the front garden and three hop back and forth between my back yard and my neighbor’s. I suspect a nest in the front garden, but haven’t gotten close enough to look for fear of scaring away the mother bunny. In any case I’m sure we’ll soon have even more bunnies. . . .

Both To Taste Temptation and To Seduce a Sinner have been nominated for the 2008 Cover Contest in the Two Cover category. This is a fun contest to browse just to check out all the pretty romance covers, so go ahead and take a look.

Finally, I’m pleased to announce that To Taste Temptation has finaled in the 2009 Desert Rose Romance Writers Golden Quill contest. Chocolates for everyone (except the dogs!)

Fairy Tales and Auctions

Happy May Day! I was once fortunate enough to enjoy May Day in Oxford, England (I believe I grumbled when my mother pulled me out of bed early to see the Morris dancers–teenagers are never grateful.)

Unfortunately here in central Illinois it’s gray and damp today. Still too wet to weed (well, without making a muddy mess anyway) and rather chilly too. Brrr! Just as well that I need to stay inside and write.

Today I’m blogging at Grand Central Cafe about fairy tales and To Beguile a Beast.

Also today is the start of Brenda Novak’s Online Auction for Diabetes Research. This is a lovely chance for readers to buy autographed books–and arcs!–from their favorite authors and benefit a good cause too. Here are some of the items I’ve donated:

an autographed arc of To Desire a Devil

an autographed Princes trilogy

the first three books of The Legend of the Four Soldiers series

autographed copies of my Julia Harper books: Hot and For the Love of Pete
