I'm a little slow about getting around to posting this and I do apologize. I had a challenge on my Z Group and asked the following question:
Can you guess who wrote these novels? Hint: they're older romance novels and one of the titles is on my blog too.
Winner gets a chicken graphic. I'll announce the winner on my blog where you can also pick up the graphic.
The Flame and the Flower
The Wolf and the Dove
Ashes in the Wind
A Rose in Winter
Marci G. Baun answered correctly first: The author is Kathleen Woodiwiss. But Mahaira's answer came in about 30 seconds later, so I'm announcing her as a winner too (plus she even emailed a link for the author's work).
Congrats on winning, ladies. Here's the graphic. I thought it was hilarious.

UPDATE: Thought I'd post the links to a couple of the autographed bookmarks I'm giving away as prizes on March 3. They're 10 1/2 by 3 inches, glossy and very nice. Link ONE and link TWO.
On Saturday, March 3, I'll be at Romance_Erotica_Connection for my first Cocktail Chat from 12 noon until 6 PM. I'm gong to be giving away some cute prizes and some free e-books. The REC Group is a lot of fun and the members there are super nice and chatty.
Stop by and talk with me and the others there. I think you'll really enjoy yourself.
I'll post a reminder here and send out a promo later. Yes, you must be a member to participate, but it's easy to unsubscribe to such groups after you're done chatting. (I have to do the same to manage all the chat groups too.)

Here's my official cover for my science-fiction novel due out from Lavender Isis Press this spring. I love that red lightning! It's a huge part of the setting in this novel.
Through her Grandmother Arianna's example, Jordanne Saunders becomes the admiral of The Red Storm. Her maiden voyage is to transport top government officials for a meeting of countries, but crewmembers would love to see Jordanne fall flat on her face.
When she’s given her grandmother's journal, Jordanne learns that Arianna's demise was not an accident, and expert Delph hunter, Wesley Cofferdrake, aids her in piecing the enigma together. As the voyage progresses, disease and hysteria plague the ship, but through a strange twist of events that nearly costs Wesley his life, Jordanne discovers that Arianna’s murderer has been right under their nose the entire time!
I've been interviewed!!! You can read it HERE.

Okay, sorry for the short post, but I need to get back to work.
Besides, the chickens are spying on me through the window and peck like mad on the glass if they think I'm procrastinating! The little peckerheads!
Friday, February 2
Mr. Big Pecker has been spotted lurking by the back patio again. He denies it, of course, but he has the biggest pecker tracks around, so I know it's him. When the ground is snow covered, anything that crosses the yard leaves tracks.
Actually, he's a bit pissed at me, so now he's trying to keep tabs on me to devise his next method of attack.
The other day, I walked out on the patio into a layer of fresh snow to find a suspicious, white-covered lump. Well, I just had to poke at it. Big mistake, I know. It turned out to be a big pile of chicken shit.
Mr. Big Pecker shot out from behind the nearby maple tree cackling up a storm.
It could have been worse. If I hadn't been paying attention I might've stepped in it and possibly brought it into the house on the bottom of my snowboot.
However, I only made matters worse, I suppose. I've been saving something especially for Mr. Big Pecker. Little does he know that one of the hens is pissed at him for taking up with that hussy hen with the big white breasts. Miss Sassy brought me a rotten egg and explained her situation. I deposited the egg in a tightly sealed box just inside the door. As Mr. Big Pecker raced across the snow (and let's face it, there is no dignified way for a chicken to run no matter how hard it might try.), I whipped open the door and grabbed the container...
To see how this chicken escapade ends, go HERE. (Yes, I'm wicked, but what can I say?)
