I'm impressed The writers who've posted before me have included photos of their offices. Not me, no, not me. It's not that messy, I swear it isn't. Okay, truth is, my office is lean and mean because I have a "if it's not nailed down, throw it away" gene. The truth is, I didn't want to take the time to charge the battery in my digital, etc, etc. Another problem with snapping anything here this time of year is that my desk faces a large window and the sun glare is fast on its way to making me blind
My dh and I had this house built seven years ago, and the only thing I cared about was my office. Kitchen? If we have to have one. Bedroom? No a bad idea. Living room? Yeah, that's be god. But this place where the 'magic' takes place had to be everything I needed. Then I goofed. Yes, I have more electrical outlets than the Pentagon and I love my 4x4 window with a view of the hills. But I'm not kidding about the glare. Also, since my office is upstairs (where my dh seldom ventures), no way can I clean the outside of the window. Fortunately, I guess, most storm winds slam rain right at the glass which acts as nature's window-washer.
It's an L shaped room and we tucked a double bed in one corner for guests but hardly anyone ever uses it, thank goodness because I don't play well with others. There's a small window there and unfortunately, a street light just outside. Fortunately, its perfect for our dog who loves to stare out the window checking on the neighborhood. And the bed--let's just say it looks as if it was made by a Mixmaster. She loves to jump and pound and tear at the blankets to get her sitting places just right, and I gave up trying to make it.
Okay, enough about this place with a TV, stereo (absolutely necessary because I can't write without music), massive desk, bookshelf, and couch. (Oh, there's also a bathroom which is really cool). So what takes place up here?
Glad you asked.
I write erotica for Kensington Aphrodisia, Ellora's Cave, and Loose ID and here's the absolute kick. Roughing It is being released by EC today, as I write, yeah! On the 24th, Going Down by Aphrodisia will hit the stands. Then come July 1, LooseID will force Galen's Pet on an unsuspecting public. I'm not sure whether the stars are in perfect alignment or this is going to jump up and bite me, but I don't have a choice in the matter.
So here are the respective covers. I saw Galen's Pet for the first time yesterday because it's a rush release. I'd love to know what people think--and that said, keep in mind that I'm finishing another book for Aphrodisia today and am in a fragile state.
