Sharon Donovan Rocks The Publishing World with 'Her Biggest Fan'

My good friend Sharon Donovan is not able to promote her new release, 'Her Biggest Fan', is released today. Sharon cannot promote her book due to illness and I want the world to know how wonderful a story she has created. I say created, because her mind just amazes me, she can do it all! Well let her book speak for itself!
HER BIGGEST FAN - release date 24th September 2010
From the shadows of the woods, he keeps vigil. The stage is set to drive the pretty little princess insane. He’s coming for her. And when he catches her, he’ll pounce on her like the big bad wolf.
After receiving a disturbing fan letter, New York Times best-selling author Tess Kincaid flees to the New England home she’s inherited following her father’s death. The manor has been tainted, every room staged to resemble the way it was in its glory days. However when Tess calls the police, the chilling props vanish into thin air.
Ruggedly handsome Sheriff Mike Andretti is called to investigate the reported burning candles, dancing gargoyles and otherworldly events. When he discovers no trace of the eerie setting, he finds himself caught between duty and desire. Is the woman with the bewitching green eyes delusional or is this a trap of twisted wit set by a demented fan?
(Pages 278) Sensual
ISBN: 1-60154-813-3

Cool air drifted out of the ballroom, carrying the scent of burning candles and cigarettes.
Music floated through the corridor, the seductive undertone hauntingly familiar. The music was hypnotic, mesmerizing. Tess could barely think over the loud beat of her heart.
Every sense screamed to beware. She was about to come face-to-face with her stalker, her biggest fan. But over the hammering of her heart and accelerated senses, her will to put an end to this deadly game prevailed. She had to face him, find out who was behind this bizarre masquerade. Anticipation mounting, she made the turn at the end of the corridor and came to a riveting halt.
A female wax gargoyle stood in the doorway, long blonde hair billowing in the breeze. Her glass eyes shimmered with madness, an eerie smile on her face. In one hand, she held a mission bell, the other reaching out for a candle.
Music played from the old phonograph, the plucking of guitar strings laced with seduction. A breeze blew in through open terrace doors, stirring the sweet scent of jasmine from the candelabras.
Two wax nymphs stood at the bar, glass eyes shining bright in the candlelight, pliable fingers wrapped around flutes of pink champagne. Lit cigarettes burned in ashtrays. From behind the bar, a winged monster served drinks.
In the center of the ballroom, two gargoyles held a pose as if they were dancing, their waxy bodies closely pressed together, their reflections glowing in the mirrored ceiling. From the old phonograph in the corner, the hypnotic music played.
Tess gasped, her hand clasping her mouth. “Oh, my God!”
Mike raised his gun, circled the room. “Come out with your hands up. Hancock County Sheriff. Put your hands where I can see them.

Sharon's book is well worth reading. I can't stand the suspense!
Get better and sell a million!
Love you Sharon!!!

Friends do that you know!

Where the Heck Have I Been!

Going crazy trying to keep up with all my family problems!
If you haven't tried this. Just try it.
It is from an orthopedic surgeon............ This will boggle your mind and you will keep trying over and over again to see if you can outsmart your foot, but you can't. It's pre-programmed in your brain!
1. While sitting where you are at your desk in front of your computer, lift your right foot off the floor and make clockwise circles.
2. Now, while doing this, draw the number '6' in the air with your right hand. Your foot will change direction!
I told you so!!! And there's nothing you can do about it! You and I both know how stupid it is, but before the day is done you are going to try it again, if you've not already done so. Send it to your buddies to frustrate them too.
Darn cool huh!!

Gentle Thoughts for Today and any day)-

 Birds of a feather flock together . . . ..and then shit on your car .

A penny saved is a government oversight.

The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing at the right time, but also to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.

The older you get, the tougher it is to lose weight, because by then your body and your fat have gotten to be really good friends.

The easiest way to find something lost around the house is to buy a replacement .

He who hesitates is probably right.

Did you ever notice: The Roman Numerals for forty (40) are  XL.'

If you think there is good in everybody, you
Haven't met everybody  

If you can smile when things go wrong, you have someone in mind to blame.

The sole purpose of a child's middle name is so he can tell when he's really in trouble.

There's always a lot to be thankful for if you take time to look for it.  For example I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don't hurt.

Did you ever notice: When you put the 2 words 'The' and 'IRS' together it spells 'Theirs...'

Aging: Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about it.

The older we get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.

Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know 'why' I look this way.  I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

When you are dissatisfied and would like to go back to your youth, think of Algebra.

You know you are getting old when everything either dries up or leaks.

One of the many things no one tells you about aging is that it is such a nice change from being young  Ah, being young is beautiful, but being old is comfortable.

Long ago when men cursed and beat the ground with sticks, it was called witchcraft.  Today, it's called golf.

Lord, Keep your arm around my shoulder and your hand over my mouth . . ... .. . . .

You need a laugh

A guy is sitting at a bar just staring at his drink for half an 
hour when this big trouble-making biker steps next to him, grabs his 
drink, gulps it down in one swig and then turns to the guy with a 
menacing stare as if to say, 'What'cha gonna do about it?"

The poor little guy starts crying.

"Come on man, I was just giving you a hard time," the biker says. "I 
 't think you'd CRY. I can't stand to see a man crying."

"This is the worst day of my life," says the little guy between sobs. 
"I can't do anything right. I overslept and was late to an important 
, so my boss fired me. When I went to the parking lot, I found 
 car was stolen and I don't have any insurance. I left my wallet in 
 cab I took home. "He continues crying even harder. "Then I found 
 wife in bed with the gardener and my dog bit me. So, I came to this
bar trying to work up the courage to put an end to my life, and then 
you show up and drink the damn poison."
Is your brain working today!!

How much this means to me!

Friends Comments
I have been so bad about coming up with new blogs. Well there is a reason for that. I have not been well, in the hospital. Hospital should be avoided at all costs. Nurses in the hospital were awful and attitudey because they feel overworked. One nurse told me not to bother her.
Which leads me to think. Why did she become a nurse and she should go get an office job.
But, it's over and I hope not to repeat it any time soon.

Writing has become my world. I worked for 34 yrs as a nurse in an office. I retired and found myself bored to death. I always wrote but usually threw away the attempts. Never thought I was good enough.
But I got serious and finally completed my first book. At least I thought I had.

I joined my local chapter and the RWA, (which has done nothing for me), and I went to my first meeting.
The then president of the chapter dragged my butt in there kicking and afraid.
But to my amazement all I saw was nice people, they do exist! I was floored. They welcomed me and made me feel like an important part of a group, something I never have experienced in my whole life. Nice people! Wow, the world is not just filled with nasty, snotty, McDonalds employees. There was more than a rude neighbors, rude drivers and angry people. In the Florida Romance Writers I found real people who care about others. - Below change the word to write!

I finished my many rewrites using the tools they taught me. And I got a contract! Holy moley!!
I have made so many friends, met so many good people and learned a lot in the process. My chapter is the best there is. They care about each other. They support each other.

One of the member works tirelessly to help other authors sell their books at the wonderful signings she arranges, and she has yet to sell a book.. But I know she will.
There are some well known and well published authors and yes, they are nice too. Not snobby and conceited. Can you believe it?
To sum it up I have such great feelings and affection for this group. I am so happy to have found my niche. And I feel proud and smile when I look at my book.
Thanks all FRW gang. You guys rock, you are my favorite people in the whole world. You know who you are. I can't mention all the names, there are too many of them. But I love you all to pieces. Thanks for being who you are. Thanks for caring about me. You guys are the best!!!
