Posts Tagged With: new years resolutions


Resolutions. They’re kinda like white lies you tell yourself and sometimes the people around you. If I was really planning on losing that last five pounds  (maybe) or drinking less (never!) or finishing that book, I probably wouldn’t wait until the begining of the new year to do it. What the hell is the difference between starting January 1st and October 31st? I may start making Haloween resolutions next year…just to be different.

But if I were to make a list of resolutions for the new year it might look something like this.

1. Have more sex

2. Eat healthier

3. Work out more

4. Get a lot of writing done

5. Have more sex

6. Ride snowmobile more

7. Spend more time outside

8. Have more sex

9. Make more money

10. Amd you guessed it…have more sex

Wishing you all a safe, happy and healthy new year, and hope you ring it in with a bang…literally.


And if your list looks anything like mine and you want to add a little excitement to the sex department my books are always available at  🙂

Where in the world did 2012 go?

WOW! I seriously cannot be alone, in wondering where the year went. As we begin to say farewell to an unforgettable year for many reasons–personal, professional, and international news wise–I think the one thing we that makes us an incredible species, is how we continue to push ourselves forward.

2012 proved to be an extremely trying year for myself professionally and artistically. Right when I was ready to give up and running out of options of what to do next, the universe decided to grace me with a few opportunities. I’m grateful for having a patient family, who allow me the ‘alone’ time I need for writing. I’m over the moon, in having found a publisher who believes in what I do. And most of all, I’m forever indebted to the friends I’ve made along the way on this journey. The key to anything we do in life is never to give up. If you fail the first time, pick yourself up, and try again. I read a really interesting interview with everyone’s favorite cover model Jimmy Thomas, which kinda sorta inspired this post. Check it out here.

In 2013–so far–I am committed to bringing you my readers, the very best that I can give you. That’s not my only New Year’s resolution, but it’s one I thought you’d want to hear. Be sure to check out my debut release in March, A Gift From Fate, as well as Hardened Desire will also be out in April. While both are paranormal shorts, I assure you, I’m working on a very special and hot historical romance series for regency fans everywhere.

Do you have any resolutions? Quit smoking, run a marathon, go back to school? I’d love to hear from ya. And keep in mind, no resolution is too small, and every effort counts. So if one of your goals is to hit the gym six days a week, and you only make it four times, don’t beat yourself up. Shit happens for a reason, but if at least keep working on it, things are bound to work out.

Sexy New Year’s Resolutions!

I have to say, I’m not really a “make a new year’s resolution” kinda gal. Frankly, I don’t manage to keep any I make, so I don’t bother anymore. Especially because mine usually involve not eating potato chips. It just doesn’t fly.

However, it occured to me that keeping sexy new year’s resolutions could be very fun indeed. And even if one makes a mistake, try, try again, as they say!

So what would my recommendations be for a sexy resolution? Well, read on!


1) Kiss more! Read a few romance/erotic romance novels and I’d bet you’d find reams dedicated to kissing! Tender pecks, deep kisses that stir your soul, kisses of longing and pain and ecstacy. There’s a reason we write this stuff. Kissing is good! And think where it could lead…

2) Tell your partner you love him/her, at least once a day. I don’t know about you, but I never tire of hearing this sentiment, and could hear it in a multitude of different ways, and wouldn’t grow bored of hearing it. It’s important to hear it, but also to say it. We want to be on the giving and receiving end of this one.

3) Try something different. Okay, maybe we don’t all have a sex swing in our living rooms. Perhaps when we hear the word “Dom”, we just picture that Italian guy we went to high school with. Maybe we don’t all live in the fast and sexy lane. That doesn’t mean we can’t mix it up here and there. There’s nothing that quite puts the light in a man’s eyes as suggesting you visit the sex toy shop together. Try it. You might like it.

4) And most obviously, pick up a romance or erotica novel. You’d be surprised at how well reading one of these books can spice up your life. One of my readers told me she read one of my books with her husband and he thanked her for it later! Let your fave romance author take you to some new places, or discover a new author or two this year! And then go ahead and try to recreate some of those steamy scenes!

I’d like to wish you all a very healthy and happy new year, and also wish to say a big thank you to the group of people that is 69 Shades of Smut. It’s been a terrific year, and I’ve been so privileged to share it with you all.
