You're invited! July 30, 9 PM eastern is having three of the League of Amazing Writers to chat, answer your questions, post excerpts and have fun talking about our books and careers! And you're invited!
Oh, I'm one of the three Amazing Writers, by the way. (wink, wink) Come join us!

I'll be talking about my latest release, Wonder Witch - and here's the latest 5 star review!!!

Wonder Witch
How original! Wonder Witch by Ashlyn Chase tells the tale of a group of women, each with amazing powers, who are smart, sexy and unfortunately all currently PMSing…This makes for a lot of tongue-in-cheek humor and outright laugh-out-loud scenes, not to mention some seriously hot sexual encounters. Another thing that I enjoyed was the fact that the story is told from Joell’s cat’s point of view. It completely cracked me up…I enjoyed this witty, humorous tale of strong, smart women. I especially liked the twist at the end, which you will only discover if you read Wonder Witch!Reviewed by: Trang, 5 Angels

Incredibly flattering e-mail!

Hi! Back in May, TRS started a new weekly newsletter called The Buzz where readers get to choose what they want to see, give us their opinions on various topics, and more! Each week some 1200+ readers choose who they’d like to see us showcase in this weekly mailing. Since last Friday’s edition, they’ve asked for you.
We’re featuring one of your books in this week’s issue and we’ll add you to the list so you can get the mailing. If you’d like to donate a book (ebook, disk, or print) for lucky winners to be drawn at random, please let me know – though there is no obligation to do so.
Anyone can join this newsletter at though if they join today, they won’t receive this issue but the next one.
Anyway, thank you for being part of TRS and congratulations on being a favorite with readers.

Thank you TRS and readers with such good taste. LOL!

I've been very naughty

I haven't blogged here for a couple of weeks. Sorry about the quiet.
But I have some news now, so here I am--making noise!

I finished the first draft of the Heaving Bosoms sequel, Quivering Thighs! This is my favorite moment as an author. Writing that final punchline and shooting my fists in the air and yelling, "Yay! Woo Hoo! or Cowabunga!" depending on the day. That's usually followed by a long sigh. Ahhh... And a couple of well-earned days off.

This is what happens to me when I write a novel--and this time was no different. I call it my Chapter Nine meltdown. I'm pretty happy with the beginning of my novel. I know where I'm headed (sort of--it's always subject to change) but I simply can't spend another moment on this particualr book! Gaaa!!!

What do I do when this happens? I write something short, then go back to it. Sometimes, if I'm still not in the novel mood, I write another shortie. Sometimes, I even write or rewrite a third novella or short story! Goodness me! At least I'm a productive procrastinator.

SO--getting back on track here, both Heaving Bosoms and Quivering Thighs were straight contemporaries of novel length. I think that may have been the problem. When I hit the melting point of a parnaormal, I simply open my imagination bag, reach in, and toss a little magic into my story. Suddenly motorcycles can fly; Leprauchans are real; and spelling doesn't count. My fingers fly over the keyboard as I tell a smaller tale. Of course I'll go back and fix the spelling...unlike when I blog and realize I don't know how to spell Leprauchan. Ah me.

Well, this is my life. Today I'll spend the rest of it with my hubby who just informed me that his poor tummy is rumbling.
