Eyecandy Monday


I'm a big fan of National Geographic magazine, and this is a fine picture of of a cougar resting after a hunt ;-)

There's not much rest for this writer though, however tired. Having finished and subbed fairy novel Named and Shamed, I am back on the short stories. I've got three already promised to anthologies, and plan to complete my new collection of fantasy shorts this year. Deadlines, deadlines, deadlines...




THE BIG NEWS!!! Vampire erotica novel Red Grow the Roses is OUT ON KINDLE IN FEBRUARY!  
I'll put links up when the cover art is available, and when someone has managed to fish the cover-copy out of Amazon's shredder. Careful with those fingers...





The blog tours are over, prizes are being dished out to competition winners, but Heart of Flame is not forgotten yet. Sizzling Hot Books has given it 4 stars and says: "it’s a fantastic read for any genre lover. Heart of Flame gets better and better as the tension builds page after page."

Full review here

And a HUGE thank you to Jeremy Edwards, Justine Elyot, Kate Pearce, Shanna Germain, Charlotte Stein and Adrian Tchaikovsky for supporting me on my Red Letter blog tour, despite all the Internet gremlins. And a big shout-out to Goddess Fish Promotions who put in such brilliant work organising the other blog tour.

But oh am I glad to be back to writing  fiction!

Shanna posted this on facebook a while back and lots of people had a rant about how sexist it was. I was surprised.

congrats on all your good work!

Oh fine, no problem. If someone's claiming that nude/sexualy attractive pictures of women are by definition reprehensible, then they're not in my world paradigm. And they're certainly not going to be hanging round on my blog!

Amen to the relief of going back to fiction.

It's so wonderful to know that the long wait for RGTR is almost over.

damn janine...what a bussy bee you were! unbelievable that you still had time to eat, sleep...and dream:-)

i have to protest...this picture needs to be removed from your blog..really..its just wrong!...this woman is way too young to be a propper cougar!!!

Janine Ashbless said...

Aw, Justine - what a great thing for you to say! Yeah, it's certainly been a long grueling wait for me... I imagine vampires are completely out of fashion now ...
:-D

Danielle, you know, that was what I thought. But maybe she's had work done ;-)

Welcome home from your exotic cyber travels, Janine. Back into that deep, dark deadline cave with you now.

Janine Ashbless said...

It's so nice to be back!

Danielle said...

Janine Ashbless said...

There was! But I was wearing more clothes ;-)
