The reviews are in!

I just recieved the most incredible review this morning from Romance Junkies!

Reviews are also beginning to be posted on Good Reads and I think I have my first official fans.

I wanted to give a huge thank you to Romance Junkies and the incredible glowing review I recieved there and thank you to all the readers who are talking about my book and how much they loved it! All I've ever wanted out of this journey as a writer... (dare I now switch my title to author?) was to give the anxious reader holding my book in their hands something to allow them an escape from reality, only to return them with a smile and a thrill to read more. Some of the authors I respect the most have changed my life in the most incredible ways, ways they will never know of or completely understand. If I can give someone a good book for even a few minutes, I will have met my goal. I am looking forward to giving you readers my next book, Battle for Neverland this month (pending there are no more last minute computer disasters!) and I hope you'll continue to cozy up in your favorite reading spot with a good book and a good cup of tea.

Hear Ye! Hear Ye! Unlikely Protector to be released July 15th!!!

This folks, is the cover for Unlikely Protector, the debut novella from yours truely- The Betrayed Writer!! In the last few months I've been hovering in the eye of the storm wrapping up edits and finishing off the endings of multiple stories. In the middle of all of this, my dystopian romance novella is getting her day to shine in the sun!  Unlikely Protector will only be avaliable on eBook :( I am so sorry for the print only crowd but I hope that you might still be tempted enough to read it on your computer anyway! Unlikely Protector will be avaliable at Barnes and Noble and on July 15, 2011. I do hope you drop by and grab your copy, Moria has an incredible story to tell about how she found her place in a new world after the 2012 Mayan Apocalypse. Blurb time!!!
"What would you bring to the plate if the world ended? Moria is finding that her knowledge of wine and club clothing isn't much help in the end of times, but her ability to problem solve has landed her a job at the camp she and a few other survivors live in. But she can't seem to solve the problem of her ever constantly growing sexual tension for the man who saved her life and brought her there. When their safety is threatened and the camp has to move, will Moria find new safety and solve her biggest issue in the process?"

Don't forget to share in the blogsphere and stop by Goodreads to rate and recommend to friends!

Top 10 reasons I'd never sleep with my hero.

A friend showed me a post by another author. I thought this was such a clever idea so I wanted to post my own reasons!! Too funny!
Ten reasons I'd Never Invite My Heroes to Sleep Over
(even if I weren't already happily married)
by Sabrina Jeffries

1. The last time I checked, piracy was illegal.  Which means harboring a pirate is illegal.  Which means sleeping with a pirate... Well, there must be a law against it somewhere.

2. My guest room is only big enough for one person.  So where would I put the hero's sworn enemy, valet, first mate, best friend, ex-mistress ... you get the picture.

3. Good mutton is hard to find in my part of the country.

4. All that long, thick hair would wreak havoc on my plumbing, not to mention how it would make the tub and sink look after a bath or a shave.  You just know those guys never clean their whiskers out of the sink.

5. I've got no secured area for storing sabers, knives, muskets, pistols, etc.

6. There's no setting on my clothes dryer for leather.  And have you ever tried to get a grease stain out of a doublet? Sheesh!

7. I'm fresh out of grog, claret, and port.

8. Any hero worth his salt can impregnate a woman who's using three kinds of birth control and wearing a chastity belt, and I've had all the children I intend to have, thank you very much.

9. My neighborhood isn't zoned for horses.

10. I like to sleep occasionally.  And you know those heroes with their marathon lovemaking capabilities... 

And here are mine!!

1. I like biting, but not the contagious kind. I'd like to keep what little sanity and humanity I have. 

2. He gives a whole new definition to the phrase "being eaten" 

3. A guy getting inside ya is kinda hot.. but not when he's controlling my entire molecular structure. You know what I mean? 

4. His mate has rabies and she also bites. 

5. I'm sure my thread count isn't high enough for him. 

6. When he has temper tantrums, he floats the furniture. I like my stuff in whole pieces, not broken ones. 

7. Admitting he is in any way attractive would suddenly be taken as sexual invitation. 

8. He would slam his giant head into all my door frames. 

9. Being sniffed like a bitch in heat is so not sexy to me. 

10. I know exactly how big his junk is, which removes half the thrill.

Change of blog, change of everything.

Greetings followers and fellow bloggers. I've thought long and hard lately about this blog and I think I'll be switching my focus off of book blogging and back onto my writing. A friend of mine will be launching a book blog that I may pop in on here and there and leave my thoughts and tidbits on books. But for now, the betrayed writer will be about writing and nothing more. Look for Raven Reviews on Blog Spot coming to you soon. I thank you for following, it's been a blast!

The infamous popping of the blog cherry

There you sit at your computer wondering what to put in your very first post. I'm no different, I can think of a thousand things I'd love to talk about and come up with nothing I actually want to say. So I pop this blogs cherry with an introduction of absolute chaos, random rambling and abject self loathing. In this blog you will waste glorious moments of your life reading writers rants, fan-girl raves and the odyssey of the published hopeful and I will continue to waste moments of my life to share them. So please, come in and take a seat. Kick up your feet and open a beer, don't forget the popcorn.. it's going to be a party.

Darkest of loves,
