HOLD ME Countdown – Bonus Story: Sisters (and some blog tour info)


1 Day to Release Day!!!!


Can you even believe it?  HOLD ME is being released into the wild TOMORROW, 9/5/11.  It’s rather appropriate that my book is released on Labor Day, because it has been such a labor of love from start to finish.  It has also been like birthing a big giant baby elephant.  I am very excited.  And happy to see it roaming free.

I’m also excited to tell you that starting tomorrow I’ll be on a wee bit of a blog tour.  Perhaps it is not a big blog tour by some author’s standards, but it’s big to me.  Here’s the info:

HOLD ME Countdown – An Interview With Katie McCabe

4 Days to Release Day!



Having had mixed results with Luc’s interview, I decided to move on to Katie.

Katie McCabe, as you may or may not know, is the heroine of my book, HOLD ME. I met Katie at a small diner in New Jersey a couple of blocks from the office building where she now works. I got there first, so I was watching for her when she walked in. Oh, it was so good to see her again! She looked beautiful with her exuberant wine-red hair curling all over the place in the humidity.

HOLD ME Countdown – An Interview with Lucas Vasco

6 Days to Release Day!

For those of you who don’t know, FBI Special Agent Lucas Vasco is the hero of my book, HOLD ME. In this post, I’m chatting with Luc to touch base and find out how he’s doing. On Thursday, I’ll post my interview with Katie, the heroine of the book.

HOLD ME Countdown – When Katie Met Spot (excerpt)


8 Days to Release Day!



Holy cow, it’s only 8 days to release day and that means our countdown is moving into the last week. You may consider this the Hurricane Irene version of the countdown, as my power went out this afternoon and I’m posting this via dial-up. That means no cute pictures for you! LOL

On Thursday I posted a short story of how Luc, hero of HOLD ME, met Spot, canine companion. I thought I should balance the scales and post an excerpt that shows when Katie, the heroine, meets this important woman in Luc’s life.

HOLD ME Countdown – Bonus Story: When Luc Met Spot

11 Days To Release Day!


How did Lucas Vasco, tough FBI Special Agent and hero of HOLD ME, end up with Spot, large Newfoundland and canine companion? The story of how the two of them found each other – with the help of a friend – made me smile.

This short story takes place about two years before the action in HOLD ME. Although it contains hints and teasers, I don’t think there any spoilers. This is a pdf file (until I’m able to create a new blog page).

I hope you enjoy “When Luc Met Spot.”
