For Authors!

Hey all you AUTHORS!
Cecile wants to read one of your books and review it! Right now, we're asking you to give us a taste of your novel in five senteces or less. The author with the most intriguing excerpt or blurb will win a BOOK REVIEW with Cecile!

Let the blurbing begin!!


  1. Hi Cecile and C.J.! I just had a blast reading the interview below. Cecile, you are a woman after my own heart...I love Gerard and for me Sean Connery has to be the sexiest man ever born! I would love to win a book review for my novel, Angel of Windword. Below is my blurb:

    Evil forces are at play surrounding Angelique Beauvisage, but she has no clue. Sensuous and suspense-filled, ANGEL OF WINDWORD, begins with a murder that takes place four years before and turns into a perilous cat and mouse game played by two reluctant lovers, who spin a web of deception that only their love can unravel. Having traded the blissful existence of her beloved Loire Valley, Angelique Beauvisage finds that Windword Hall has more than one villainous skeleton in the closet.

    Nice meeting you,

    Maggie Dove

  5. God, it's a scorpio gathering lol I'm one too!!
    The Heart of a Warrior is not an ordinary romance. It's a battle fought on every page. Yuma, a Native American is bound by his culture and traditions, but it all becomes a chain around his neck when he falls in love with Beelinda a nurse from the uk. Can love reeally survive when two different cultures collide head on? Or is it doomed to fail?

  6. Hi all. I'm not a scorpio, I'm a pisces. lol.
    Lucky Sands is anything but. His wife is cheating on him, his job sucks, and when she walks out on him and dies in a car crash, the only thing he can think of is drowning himself in cheap booze and cheaper sex. But when he finds his childhood friend Tuesday Peters working in a brothel, his luck takes a steep downward dive after he finds out her twin sister is dead...and that Wednesday's death was no accident. Together Lucky and Tuesday embark on a search for answers, plagued by spirits and deities alike. Every clue along their path points not just to the truth of Wednesday's murder, but to divine machinations that prove everything Lucky knows about life to be wrong--and prove there's no such thing as luck. Only fate...and the madness of the gods.

  7. Fun! I want to play!

    Playing cupid isn't a reward; it's Millie's punishment. If she doesn't find repressed, divorcee, Brooke, true love in the next thirty days, Millie'll lose the one thing in this life sentence worth fighting for, her partner. Just two problems: One, Millie stinks at matchmaking. Two, too young, too hot, Elliott keeps getting in Millie's way.

  11. I firmly believe that Scorpios are more creative. Could it be because I am one too? :o)

    Here's my blurb for Promises to Keep:

    When Starlette was tweleve her father died. It's a good thing she doesn't believe what she's told. Ten years later Starlett'e hot on his trail, discovering that the Dark Lady Dreashae - a powerful sorceress - kidnapped him, took him to the mystical world of Verella, and is keeping him as her slave. Starlette has to navigate her way through a world filled with dragons, centaurs, and demons to defeat Dreashae. Will Starlette, a mere mortal, have the strength needed to finish her quest and save her father?

  12. Hi, Cecile. Enjoyed reading about you. Made me feel like I knew you. Jane Toombs
    In Sixth Century Wales, Merlin steals magic from the Sacred Black Dragon to try to heal the dying King Arthur. This fails, tainting some humans with dragon’s blood, and turns the black dragon against mankind. To keep humanity safe, Merlin appoints a human Keeper, blood of his blood and Guardian, chosen from those who now have dragon’s blood. These he teaches how to set wards to block the dragon’s evil, and warns the wards will need renewing. As long as those from these two blood lines remain in Wales, the dragon is forced to stay in his mountain cave lair.
    Today, after all descendents of these two blood lines have migrated to the United States, the black dragon’s lair is now deep within an abandoned copper mine in the wilderness of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. The wards are failing, but the modern descendents know little or nothing about the dragon or their duty. Will evil demolish the world?

  13. Ooooh, goody! More and more novel blurbs. Cecile, I'm biting my nails and on the edge of my seat. You have until 12am tonight to choose, so take your time, sweets! It's gonna take some deep thought, me thinks!


  14. Holy Crap Batman.. I thinks you right CJ..... this is a tough tough decision!!!!

    Hi Jane and Heather! It is nice to meet you ladies!!!! Both of your books sounds awesome!

  15. Hi Cecile (and CJ too)! Loved the interview!

    Here's my logline for Survival Games, an erotic thriller that John Everson calls a "hot read"!

    Until he snatches sexy stock jock Jessica Connor, Ty Aris happily followed his step-brother’s orders, producing some of the most coveted black market porn and snuff films on the street. But the day he grabs her in the parking lot, his life becomes a living nightmare.

    Jessica was supposed to be just another sex slave but Ty falls under her spell and her psychic bond claims his soul. When Frank wants to start filming, Ty stalls with every excuse in the book sending his step-brother into a fit of rage and Ty knows it’s only a matter of time before he loses this game. Is he willing to gamble everything to reverse Jessica’s fate?

  16. Actually I modified the blurb instead of using my logline. :)
