The holiday season always catches me by surprise. I’m never prepared for it. The gift buying, decorations, parties...and it seems I always have book releases this time of year. My stress level rises with every passing day. To conquer my growing panic that somehow I’m going to mess up on buying someone a gift or forget to post a blog or miss a chat, I came up with ways to de-stress during the holidays.

Doing the things you love and being with those you love helps soothe stress. It’s all about realizing what you enjoy and making sure that you do some of the things that make you happy. I love spending time with family and friends, and the holiday season is about that. I gave myself permission to skip my writing time to meet friends for shopping, lunch, dinner or coffee.

I’m not beating myself up when I play my RPG or read a good book or watch a movie instead of writing. I should be working on my WIP has been axed from my self-talk this month. And, I’m going to make sure I see The Hobbit on a big screen!

I also set boundaries and have declined some parties and events. I can’t go out every night and not be affected the next day. I want to enjoy the holidays by not adding more pressure to be everywhere.

This December, I treated myself to a hot rock massage. There’s no better way to instantly relax then be massaged with warm smooth rocks! Really!

How do you cope with stress during the holidays? Leave a comment and I’ll choose a winner to receive a digital book from my backlist!

Have a wonderful Holiday.


I have two new m/m romances out for the holidays.

Thou shall not kill.

For archangel Razi-el, he had no choice. He would break God’s commandment again if it were to save Uri-el from a demon’s talons. Yet even God’s most trusted archangel cannot avoid punishment. No longer Razi-el, he is now Izar, a Protector sworn to kill for the angels.

When a Protector kills an angel, Izar is summoned to work alongside Uri-el to capture the killer. Izar is shocked when his bloodlust spikes hot for the archangel. He knows better than to go after forbidden fruit. Refusing to give in to temptation, he ignores his body’s tempestuous arousal for Uri-el until a heated argument turns his blood into molten lust.

As they rush to find the killer, their passion plays into the demon’s plan. Izar will have to make a choice between life and death if he is to save Uri-el again.

Pride will be the death of him.

When psychic Nate Coleman dreams of a murder, he knows it's a premonition. He can't forget the image of his ex-lover with a bullet hole through his chest. Nate has no choice but to confront William and face the skeptical scientist's ridicule.

Dr. William Ryner doesn’t believe in what he can’t prove. When Nate comes back into his life, it’s not to rekindle their love, but to bring up more of that mumbo jumbo that split them apart.

Despite William’s refusal to listen, Nate can’t ignore the premonition. And, William can’t ignore Nate. Before the gunman strikes, William must either trust in Nate's ability or rely only on the facts, but if he does the latter, pride could be the death of him.

Happy Reading!

This I've just planned everything out. Usually I leave everything to the last minute. There has been little to no stress (so far) this year.
Happy Holidays

Cope? What is the meaning of that word? I don't cope, hahaha. I suppose the closest I get is retreating to the interwebz for relief and enter the blog hops, lol.

Start early and ease into the holiday season. Gifts bought, wrapped and either under the tree or mailed out. I will start baking this week. I enjoy each activity more this way. Would love to have any of your books join me in my nook.

I actually finished my shopping this Sunday before noon! :) Wrapped the last of presents this morning, and mailed out the other stuff today. Now I can relax and chill - and play Dragon Age on my PS3 - grin.
