Spring cleaning–new release and giveaway ENDING Friday!

Aahz sees the vacuum cleaner coming...

Aahz sees the vacuum cleaner coming…

As I write this I look around my house and think it’s time to give it a good thorough cleaning. And it reminded me of four years ago, when we were selling our old house and I had to keep it in Show Room Condition. It was then I first discovered something called Cleaning Mode.

Everything I looked at needed cleaning. Even if I’d just cleaned it. I saw every mote of dust, even the single cat hair marring the pristine surface of the underside of the toilet bowl.

Yeah, it was almost a fever.

Thankfully, that’s mostly worn off. Now I enjoy life a little more, if living a little less orderly.

But I’ve kept some of the habits from Cleaning Mode, including never bringing something into the house without something else going out. The biggest obstacle to a clean house is clutter, at least in my case.

This does not apply to books! I’m thrilled to announce I have a new book to add to my shelf, the first in a new series, just released yesterday. May I introduce you to Sophia–a Witch Princess who only wants to be mundane. And check out my Goodreads giveaway and Facebook party below!

HeartMates3x4.5Heart Mates (Pull of the Moon, Book 1)

Witch plus wolf? They’re allergic. Except no one told their hearts.

Shifters and witches? Forbidden on pain of death. Might as well stick a fork in a light socket. Yet those are the kind of sparks witch princess Sophia Blue feels when she meets wolf shifter Noah in her aunt’s bookstore.

But Sophia is stuck. Her aunt is missing and Noah, the last person to see her, is Sophia’s only hope. If not for that and her aunt’s new, cute little doggie, Sophia would run as far as she could from the sexy, hard-hewn alpha.

Noah’s stuck too. Before disappearing, the aunt hit him with a hex gone horribly wrong—he’s the doggie. By day he’s fifteen pounds of yippity-yip, and with five anti-alpha wolves nipping at his heels, that’s deadly dangerous. Only Sophia can help him, but she has lost her magic.

Then an evil mage from Sophia’s past shows up with murder on his mind, and all Noah’s instincts shout to protect the woman his misguided heart thinks is his mate.

Warning: Sinfully sexy alpha thrown together with a hot witch in a small town. Sass, sparkle, a meddling aunt, snafus, growling, fighting, and oh yeah, sex. Might want to get up to date on your shots.

  3. Mary, Show Room Condition sounds extremely draining. I find it hard to concentrate on writing if my house needs cleaning, but I have managed to get less anal about it as my writing commitments have gotten more pressing.

    And congrats on the new book!

    Hi, Michelle,

    It definitely was draining, both physically and mentally. I don’t like clutter, but I’m much happier spending time writing and reading 🙂 It’s good to hear you’ve reached a balance with your house and your writing commitments, and I bet your readers are especially happy there’s more writing 😀

    Thanks for the congrats!
