Bring on the edits!


Edits! Edits! And more edits!

Yep, it’s that time again where I’ve been working my tush off getting books back to my editors for final polishing. Being a writer is hard work!

I have two books coming out in the very near future, one in March from Silver Publishing and another from Sizzler Editions, which my Sensei is editing as we speak. So I will be pretty busy next few weeks.

Valentine’s day was just yesterday! I got a wonderful dinner from my Valentine and a whole lotta lovin’, ; D. Yep not ashamed to admit that even at my rip old age of forty-two, I still get my groove on!

Got some new material because of it too! (wink, wink)

Anyway hope y’all had a wonderful Valentine’s Day and may all your days be filled with love, health and good times!

Here is a belated Valentine’s day “treat” for your viewing pleasure! I know it’s not chocolate, but I think it will do! ; )

Yes a new title coming soon…


Coming soon from Silver Publishing, my new contemporary erotic romance, titled Personal Tutor…

Daniella is a middle-aged newly divorced and extremely depressed ex-sociallite who accepts a bargain for two weeks of sex with a sexy rich younger man.

Little does she know that the bargain includes not one but two gorgeous brothers bent on making her see that she is still very desirable.

Here is an excerpt to wet your appetites,

“Daniella?”

The deep voice sent shivers down her back. Daniella turned around. Her heart leapt to her throat. Standing before her was a young man, no doubt in his mid twenties, with tussled blond hair that was a bit too long to be considered proper, but not long enough to look delinquent.

His face, gorgeous, tanned with ice blue eyes, full lips and a flawless complexion.  Her eyes traveled down the long lean body, snuggly covered with a black button down shirt, left un-tucked. A well-developed body was evident through the fabric. He wore gray jeans and black biker boots to complete the outfit.  Daniella shook her head slightly to snap out of the sudden trance.

“Yes…can I help you?”

His eyes met hers. He smiled and she almost fell to the floor. He took a few steps towards her.  She noticed he was at least six inches taller, which put him at about the six-foot mark.  Reaching around her he pulled out the chair for her and stepped aside.  Daniella sat, still staring at him curiously.

After he took his seat, they sat there staring at each other for an awkward moment.  He finally broke the silence.

“I guess I should introduce myself. Name is Trace Bentley and I’m the guy who put the ad in Swingers and Flingers.”

Daniella shook her head in disbelief, “You’re the twenty-five year old virgin?”

He chuckled, “Well yes and no. I put the add in after breaking up with my girlfriend of three years.”

Daniella sat back, suddenly feeling a bit insecure, “Why?”

Trace looked down, his expression a bit contrite; “I was really upset over it. She broke up with me for an older man.  She told me, it was because older guys know how to make love not just fuck.” His cheeks brightened with color.

Although Daniella wasn’t actually happy about been caught off guard like this. She felt a bit of compassion for Trace. Still, he was being extremely presumptuous.

“So you figured, putting a ad in an adult magazine would nail you an older nympho, that could teach you how to ahh…‘make love’…”

She really hadn’t intended to sound so sarcastic, but this whole charade felt like some college student’s attempt at tagging a “cougar”. And she was not a cougar.

Trace looked embarrassed, “I would be lying if I said no. Honestly, I hadn’t thought anyone would even answer the ad. In fact I thought it had been canceled.”

“So why didn’t you just tell me that when I called.” Daniella stood to leave.

“No, Daniella wait. I would like to offer you another deal.”

Honestly, she would have just left him sitting there with egg on his face; however, he looked like a lost little puppy. Plus she was very attracted to him. Even though he was a jerk. Something tugged inside  nudging her to sit back down. She gave in.

“Okay Trace, what’s this deal?”

His face lit up like a kid getting a favorite toy. “I want to still pay you for your companionship.”

Daniella rolled her eyes, “Isn’t that the same deal you offered in the ad?”

Trace reached across the table and took her hand in his, “Yes exactly the same. But I want to know what it’s like to be with some one with more…uhm experience.”

She pulled her hand away and got up, swinging her purse over her shoulder, “No thanks Trace, I’m not gonna be your experiment in “cougar ville”. She walked away.

Almost out the door, Daniella felt a hand on her shoulder. She turned ready to blast the asshole. When she saw it was Trace, she sighed loudly, “I’m not interested.”

He didn’t seem to get it. “I wasn’t either until I saw you.”

Did she hear him right? “Excuse me?”

Look for this new release on March 3, 2012. Until then, happy reading and I’ll be back next week with a little less “shameful self-promo” ; )

What women really mean….


The other day I asked my husband to pick up cat food and litter. Okay, not difficult right? Well, he came home with cat treats and bird seed. We don’t have a bird by the way.

Needless to say I was really PO’d and let him know it. He then said something that really shocked me. He told me that he never knows what I mean and that it leaves him stressed trying to figure out what I “really” mean. Naturally I was complete confused, since , “Honey please pickup cat food and cat litter on your way home” seems pretty self-explanatory… apparently I’m mistaken.

We had a long discussion about the things I ask of him and what I “really” mean… This is what HE came up with…

When I ask, “Honey are you hungry?”

According to my husband’s brilliant deduction, this is what I mean….”I’m way too tired to cook anything so please say no and fix yourself a bowl of cereal.”

Finances….if we need to budget and I say…”Okay I’ll limit the withdrawals this month…”

He knows I really mean…”Get off my case, I work too and if you have a problem with my spending then maybe you should get a second job you bum.”

When he asks me what I want for my birthday, Christmas, Valentines Day etc…and I say…”Oh lets just enjoy the day and not get each other a gift…”

What I really mean is…”I’ve already told you what I wanted, so you should have already gotten it and if I don’t get you anything that’s okay cuz I labored for twelve hours to have your offspring!”

When I call him from the other room…”Hun do you have a minute?”

What I really mean is….”Since your not doing anything special, could you…” and I proceed to give him five pages of things I need done around the house to make my life easier.

and my personal favorite…

When he forgets my birthday, or some important “US” day…and all I do is walk past him  with a ” : )” not saying a word…every time we lock eyes….

What I really mean is…”Enjoy the quiet time, cuz it just you and your hand tonight!” Thank you “Pink” for paraphrasing.

All I can say is…looks like he knows me pretty well…no wonder I love him!

So if you have any “what you really mean is…” lets hear ’em…this could be fun!

Happy New Year!


Some eye candy to start the New Year….(and get your attention  ; D )

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So what goals have you set for yourself….

Well, Emma Paul has a huge list that she is plugging away at. Yep I’ve got my little hands full.  I have a new release with Silver Publishing, coming in March, 2012. Also expect 3 new books, hopefully, in the early part of 2012, from Sizzler Editions.

Setting goals is the easy part. The hard part is completing what you set out to do. Everyone has a different way to approach it. Some make a list, some wing it, others (like me) leave sticky notes all over the house as a reminder.

My notes tend to go something like this:

Write!!!…. or Get off that tush and Write!!!….

As a full-time working mother and wife, it can get really hectic. However, I always try to put in a few hours a night working on my Author stuff, ie…edits, books, blogs, interviews etc …

I wind up staying up most of the night, since my writing usually takes place after the hubby and kids are in bed.  It makes it easier to work without the constant…”Mom!” or Mommy, mmommmm!”

Why does it seem that the minute my ass hits the chair at my desk, my family needs me?

Any way hope everyone has a wonderful and happy New Year! And, may all your goals be completed!

Emma.

A quick hello to wish everyone a very happy Holiday Season!


Hello fellow bloggers and LTR readers! I just wanted to take a breather, : ) and wish everyone a very happy Holiday(s) and a very safe, prosperous New Year.

So the holidays are here and it feels summer barely ended and school just started! At least it does for me. 2012 is just around the corner and I have a ton of catch up writing to do.  I have more books planned for release in the beginning of the year. Plus a few new surprises.

My book Personal Touch will be release by Silver publishing in March, 2012. I’m excited about working with this publisher.

Well enough updates on Emma Paul… ; )

I’ll be back next Wednesday with something more interesting to say!

Promise!

Until then, happy holidays and happy reading!

Emma
