Go for it, Roy!

My friend Kitteh (known to the rest of the world as Kristen Painter) has a new release today! It’s a Steampunk Novella e-book out with Samhain. Don’t forget to buy a copy!

The last thing she planned to steal was his heart.

The Company. Military institution, protector of Praeton and the nation of Grand Isle. Dirty rotten thief.

When Pandora Bramble steps aboard the Company’s premiere airship Daedalus it’s not for the exclusive VIP tour. It’s to secure proof that the Company stole the regulator valve her father designed—even if it means tearing the engine apart. Foiled by the unexpected appearance of a handsome crew member, she despairs of ever getting another chance—until he kisses her.

Captain Theolonius Hatch, sentenced to engine room duty for refusing to take part in the Company’s fleet week activities, never dreamed a woman like Pandora existed. Her brains match her beauty, a combination that adds up to more trouble than he ever expected.
As Pandora allows Theolonius to sweep her into a whirlwind courtship, her wildest dreams come true. As do her greatest fears, leaving her to decide what matters most. Loyalty…or love.

The clock is ticking.

Warning: This book contains airships, mechanical owls, women who are good with tools, men in and out of uniform, steam generated by engines and people, and some hot carriage scenes.

BTW: when you hear me say “Go for it, Roy!” it’s from this movie right here:

whew. it’s gettin hot up in here

Yesterday was a big day for releases! Kitteh’s (aka Kristen Painter) book ALL FIRED UP officially hit the virtual shelf yesterday. Pop over to Samhain and download a copy. It’s about Vikings for crispy’s sake! Surely if you read this blog, you’re a fan of Vikings. (okay, and if you watch True Blood, how can you NOT be a fan of Vikings?) Don’t do E-books? p-shaw! It’s time for you to join to catch up with the rest of the world and step into your future….If Roxanne St. Claire can do it, you can. Right, Rocki?

Another hot item is my pal Louisa Edwards’ book CAN’T STAND THE HEAT. Now I was lucky enough to get to read this book as it was being written and I can’t wait to reread it now that it’s a done deal! A hot, temperamental Chef; a fiery, temperamental food critic; sexy kitchen scenes…Oh yeah. And let’s not forget Frankie….Who’s Frankie? Read the book to find out!

(blogger won’t allow me to post pics right now, so y’all just need to go buy the books and see the great covers for yourselves)

And for today’s bit of trivia…I was emailing a friend from high school who lives in New Zealand yesterday and he made a comment that he was having a “flat white trim.”

Since I had never heard that before, I decided that meant “Skinny white chick with no boobs.” Apparently not. It’s a double shot latte with less foam in the milk. Hmmm. I think I like my idea better…

Now if you were on a menu, what would you be called?
