With Christmas just over a week away, I’ve decided to share the dragon-warriors version of the 12 Days of Christmas song. So tune up your vocal cords and prepare to sing along this week on Dragon Tip Tuesday…


Tip #108 – The 12 Days of Christmas song, Dragon Style!


On the twelfth day of Christmas my true love sent to me:

Twelve Dragons roaring
Eleven Fireballs flying
Ten Men a screaming
Nine Ladies cheering
Eight Trees on fire
Seven Buildings exploding
Six Fire Trucks racing
Five Golden Claws
Four Cursing Neighbors
Three Sonic Booms
Two Nasty Snarls
and a purple Dragon eating an Elf.


























I’ve got some exciting news!


So you all know Fury of Obsession, the fifth book in the Dragonfury Series (Venom’s story), will be released Feb. 24th. PreOrder buttons are live, so if you missed it, here’s the link to buy or share with your friends * http://amzn.to/1uO4c2M * Anyway…onto my fun news!


I just found out Fury of Surrender (Forge’s story) will be released this Fall–October 2015. Whoot! Can you tell I’m super excited about this? And ALSO!…Fury of Destruction (book 7…Gage’s book, at least I think. Nian’s still lobbying hard for his story and WANTS book 7!) will be released early Spring 2016. Add the Dragonfury novella, Fury of a Highland Dragon into the mix (all about Forge’s old pack–sexy Scottish dragons!) and it’s going to be AWESOME! Lots and lots of smokin’ hot dragon-warriors coming down the pipe in the new year.




We’re just a couple of weeks away from Christmas. I hope you have your shopping started and all you’re Christams decorations up. In the spirit of all things festive, this week on Dragon Tip Tuesday…


Tip #107 – Whatever you do, don’t ask a lightning dragon to put up your Christmas lights. He’ll get tangled up in LEDs, short out electrical circuits, and blow the power to your entire neighborhood. Pissed off neighbors—never a great way to start the holidays.




It’s Tuesday already. Another Dragon Tip is here!


Tip #106 – Never serve a fire dragon soda pop. The fizz will make him sneeze, and you’ll end up explaining why a fireball exploded out your front window to the police.

And here it is, the tip of the week on Dragon Tip Tuesday. Just in time for American Thanksgiving too!


Tip #105 – Invite a dragon over for Thanksgiving dinner. Not only will he be an amusing guest, but you’ll be REALLY thankful when he settles in for a nightcap and rocks your world.


Happy Thanksgiving to all my Amercian neighbors! Hope you have a great long weekend.

We’ve come full circle and arrived once again at Dragon Tuesday! This week’s tip is all about mental toughness and running for your life.


Tip #104 – When fleeing a deranged dragon, run in a zigzag pattern. It won’t do a darn thing to save your life, but it’ll make you feel better before the fireball arrives and you get fried.






Thank goodness it’s Friday, because I’ve got something awesome to share. And well, it only seems fitting that it’s arrived as we turn the corner into the weekend!


The cover of Fury of Obsession (Dragonfury Series, book 5) is here! And I’m super excited that I finally get to share it with you. Isn’t it awesome? I’m loving it. Now I get to stare at Venom (the smokin’ hot hero in the 5th Dragonfury novel) all day long. Happy Friday to me and you! :-)

I’m a little late posting this today, but I have a good excuse. I actually slept in–for the first time in forever. I forgot what that feels like…so good. But now it’s back to business and this week’s tip on Dragon Tip Tuesday!


Tip #103 – Never play Monopoly with a dragon. He’ll treat the board like a race track, take $400 instead of $200 when passing go, skip jail, and steal Park Place along with the Monopoly guy in his car on the way out. Not a bad way to win—especially if you convince him to take you with him when he goes.




I simply can’t resist. This is so much fun. A Saturday morning laugh for you. Enjoy!

It’s that time again. This week’s Dragon Tip on tap…


Tip #102 – Caffeine makes dragons hyper, so whatever you do, don’t service him an espresso after dinner. But if you do, make sure you have great insurance policy and the fire department on speed dial.






Hi guys…


I’m trying something new and need your help. It’s called Thunderclap and it’s designed to reach readers by having people support my Dragonfury campaign. All you need to do is click this link > http://thndr.it/1nWooBL < and support the campaign on one (or more!) of your social media sites — Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr.


Easy-peasy. It’s really just that simple.


But here’s the catch — if I don’t get 100 supporters by Nov. 14th, the campaign won’t be launched. Which means I really need your help to make it happen. So please click through and support my Dragonfury campaign. Any help (be it supporting the campaign or recruiting supporters) is greatly appreciated. Let’s make it to 100 by the 14th!


Thanks! Happy Friday everyone!





In the spirt of Halloween, this week on Dragon Tip Tuesday…


Tip #101 – Looking for costume ideas this Halloween? Dress up like a dragon, hit the town, and be lavished by attention from the sexiest in Dragonkind circles. You’ll rock his world and won’t regret a second of it.

Let the celebration begin. After months of waiting, we’ve finally arrived. Dragon Tip NUMBER 100 is in the house!


TIP #100 – Invite a dragon to your birthday party. Instead of festoons and balloons, you’ll be treated to a ride on the wild side—the kind a girl simply can’t resist.






So I’m in Seattle attending the Emerald City Writers Conference this weekend and am super excited to be here. Not only is it a great city to visit, but I get a bonus because the Dragonfury Series is set in Seattle. So many things to see. So much for Bastian and the boys to damage on the fly-by! And I plan to do some serious exploring while I’m here, adding to what I already know about Washington State. Great stuff to include in the next Dragonfury novel, wouldn’t you say?


Anyway, enough about that. And more about the book signing!


I’m joining a number of other authors at the ECWC’s book signing tomorrow (October 18th) at The Westin Bellevue Hotel. If you’re in the area (or live somewhere in the State! :-) ), plan on popping over in the afternoon (4:30-6:30pm). I’ll be signing copies of Fury of Desire (Dragonfury Series, book 4) as well as Knight Avenged (Circle of Seven, book 2) and would love to see you there.


Come by and say hello!





Oh baby, we’re just one away from 100 now. Check out number 99 this week on Dragon Tip Tuesday.


Tip #99 – Planning a getaway to warmer waters this winter? Be careful in the Caribbean. Water dragons love the tropics and enjoy scaring the crap out of unsuspecting snorkelers.

There are times that are just straight up fun. Chatting last night with Lisa Watson on Reader’s Entertainment Radio last night was absolutely that. I love it when that happens. Nothing better than a meeting of the minds and great conversavation. If you’d like to check out the interview and get the skinny on what I’ve been up to along with updates about the Dragonfury Series and Circle of Seven novels, check out the podcast here: http://ow.ly/CwVfw

We’re almost there…just two away now from hitting the 100th Dragon tip! Couple more weeks and I’ll hit the milestone and need to celebrate with a cool dragon giveaway. So, stay tuned for all the details. In the meantime, here’s this week’s dragon tip.


Dragon Tip #98 – Looking for a ride to an important meeting? Ask a dragon to fly you there. Not only will you arrive on time, but you’ll have a headful of luxurious locks to show for it too—Dragon flight: better than any blow dryer.

Dragon Tip on tap. A poem to live by…literally.


Tip #97 – Wake a dragon with a kiss,
Spend the rest of the day in bliss.
Wake a dragon with a curse,
Wind up face down in a hearse.
