Art Of The Lie, by Delphine DrydenToday, I do a reading for Delphine Dryden‘s contemporary hero, Richard. Richard and Lindy are her characters from her Truth And Lies series. These contemporary erotic romances will tickle your fancy. Make sure you look for The Art Of The Lie available now from Ellora’s Cave.

From her bio:

After earning two graduate degrees, practicing law awhile, and then working for the public school system for over ten years, Delphine finally got a clue. She tossed all that aside and started doing what she should have been doing all along, writing novels! In hindsight she could see the decision was a no-brainer. Because which sounds like more fun? Being a lawyer/special educator/reading specialist/educational diagnostician…or Continue reading “CHARACTER READING: Richard”

Character Reading: Anya Kalinczyk

Today’s reading is for Anya Kalinczyk who is a Virgo. She’s the heroine of Laura Bickle’s hot new Urban Fantasy. And by hot I’m not talking sex this time. I do need to disclose that I have read (and loved) Embers which is the first in this series. The second, Sparks, is just out. I hope you will try this series out. There’s a lot to love about it. Besides, who can’t love a large salamander-puppy that makes you look like you are talking to yourself?

Her bio states “Laura Bickle has worked in the unholy trinity of politics, criminology, and technology for several years. She and her chief muse live in the Midwest, owned by four mostly-reformed feral cats.”

I hope you enjoy this chat with her heroine, Anya.

And don’t miss the giveaway at the end. Continue reading “Character Reading: Anya Kalinczyk”

Character Reading: Jane Renard

My friend and fellow writer, J.L. Wilson, has been here before. She writes mysteries with a touch of gray and definitely love too. I had the opportunity to do a reading for one of her characters, Jane Renard. Jane is also a writer who uses the pen name of Phire Fox. She’s a Capricorn with a January 3 birthday and shares my birth year of 1961.

Here’s a bit about the book: Professor Jane Renard’s estranged husband was murdered in front of a thousand Z.Z. Top fans at the Minnesota State Fair — while Jane sat in the crowd. Marcus Sloan, a security guard, is her alibi and is soon her ally when she’s briefly suspected of murder.

That’s not her only problem. Jane has a ‘secret’ life as an erotic author and she’s up for a job promotion at college. If they find out about her novels, she’s sunk. Plus her best friend is being threatened by a vengeful ex, Jane’s getting disturbing fan mail to her alter ego and a guy keeps calling and talking dirty on the phone.

Jane’s biggest problem, though, is her inexperience with men. Marcus might be the man to help her add some interesting firsthand facts to her novels. Maybe she can also discover if happily ever after only happens in books.

By the way, if you want to learn how to use the Tarot for creating characters, take an online class with me. If you just want to dive into the Tarot and learn how to read for yourself and others, I’m also doing a class for that online.

Don’t miss the contest at the end! Now for the reading. Continue reading “Character Reading: Jane Renard”

SPREAD: Our Purpose

If you saw my Thursday post, you will know that I simply adore Lissa Coffey’s work. She sends out daily emails that you can (and should) subscribe to. I love getting them.

She’s also trying to get a show on Oprah’s new network. I think she’d be a great addition. I know I’d tape her show for sure. You can vote for her here. You do have to register, but I’d really appreciate it if you would vote daily and spread the word as well. See the Thursday post for details on how to win this reading from me.

She sent out an email 6/23/2010 that was a bit different from her normal ones. This one was longer that most. I’ve read it several times. It hit me so deeply that I’ve designed a spread around it. Continue reading “SPREAD: Our Purpose”

CONTEST! Please help me help a friend

She styles herself as a relationship expert, but it’s so much more than that. Her emails talk about how to have a relationship with yourself, the world and beyond. I think she should be called an interpersonal communicator diva, myself. Plus she’s my age which means she’s an Ox (most likely). I like oxen people!


I have a friend. Okay, so she’s not really MY friend, but I feel like she is. She is Lissa Coffey, author and emailer. It’s her emails that get me on a daily basis. I often forward them to friends encouraging them to subscribe as well.

She is auditioning to get a TV show slot on Oprah’s next network. I think she’d be groovy! I know I’d set my DVR to tape every episode. Her website is Coffey Talk which will be the name of her show if she wins. And that’s where you come in. Continue reading “CONTEST! Please help me help a friend”
