Yukon’s Holiday Wish List

 

If you’ve ever stopped by my website, you know that Yukon is a Norwegian Elkhound who loves to read.  He’s very fond of thrillers, books about mountain climbing, and, of course, romance.  He’s been diligently compiling his reading wish list for Christmas in the hopes that Santa will drop at least a few of his requests down the chimney.  Along with a few dog bones and chew toys, just to round things out.

Yukon’s reading wish list:

WHISPER FALLS by Toni Blake

SOMEONE LIKE YOU by Susan Mallery

STONED KISSED by Keri Stevens

LYING EYES by Amy Atwell

CADDYGIRLS by VK Sykes

Okay.  Yukon does have a confession to make.  He’s already read CADDYGIRLS.  After all, my husband and I wrote that book under the pen name of VK Sykes, but Yukon figures it never hurts to have another copy of a book he really enjoyed (honestly, I didn’t pay him to say that!).  And because Yukon is such a loyal reader of mine, he’s also asked his mommy not to forget to pre-order my next historical release, which is a novella in the anthology, AN INVITATION TO SIN. You can read an excerpt from my novella on my website.

So that’s what Yukon is looking forward to reading in the next little while.  How about you?  Leave a comment and tell me what you’ve got on your wish list for the holidays.  One commenter will win an e-ARC of my novella from AN INVITATION TO SIN.


A Very Southern Christmas

Yeah, okay.  I know that whenever I blog I should be witty, or insightful, or educational, or a spectacular combo of all three.  I promise to do that another day.  But it’s the Christmas Season, y’all, and I just want to eat cookies, drink eggnog, and look at pretty pictures.  I bet you do, too.  So today I’m sharing some very pretty pictures of Amelia Island, Florida, where I’m spending the holidays with my family.

My Mysterious Alter-ego Goes To A Party

Some of you might not know this, but I also write contemporary romance with my husband under the pen name of VK Sykes.  Our first book, CADDYGIRLS, is published by Carina Press. Carina Press is the new digital-only imprint of Harlequin, so we’re now part of a fabulous and very big community of readers and authors.  To celebrate the holidays, e-Harlequin is holding a digital Open House on Wed. Dec 15, with forums and chats with their authors and lots of great prizes to give away.  Please stop by to chat with your favorite authors (including yours truly) and to win some great prizes.

See you there!
