Sweet Inspiration  - Penny Watson

Romance readers take note!


I wanted to read a book that was Christmas-y, endearing, fun and lighthearted. Well, I got all of that and more!


Penny Watson created her own world with Santa's first born son, the fastidious pastry chef Nicholas, and Lucy Brewster, a kind, workaholic cafe owner. Her tales of romance and cookie recipes and North Pole drama will make any romantic sigh. She adds in the right measure of humor and hard drinking bar elves to keep it from being saccharine.


I found it to be a quick and delightful read.


NOTE: This is NOT a children's book! There were sex scenes that contained extra doses of pepper and ginger in the pfeffernusse, if you get my drift.





Yes, it's a cartoon. I did it again. A cartoon.


*Penny waits while everyone chuckles at her expense*


Done now?


I just wanted to offer a fun holiday shortie for my long-suffering fans and readers and people who like to make fun of me.


So, here you go!


Here's the blurb...





Looking for a super-schmaltzy, super-sweet, super-beardy, super-short holiday snowbound-in-a-cabin romance?


You just found it.







Happy Holidays To All! On the Velveeta Cheesiness Scale, I'm giving this a 9.9. It's X-tremely cheesy, just the way I like my holiday stories.


A couple more things...today is the last day for THE HEART OF A DUKE give-away. Check it out!


Also, RT Book Reviews has a nice article called Self-Published Romance and Erotica: Titles Self-Pub Authors Recommend. I have a big list of books I loved included in the article. Take a look.


Finally, Monday is the beginning of my huge HOLIDAY BASH. It will be going on all week. I'll be giving away dozens of amazing books, both print and digital. I'm also sharing a tasty holiday cocktail recipe, and a list of recommended gift ideas for folks who need some shopping inspiration. Don't miss it!


Hope everyone has a great weekend. I am putting up the tree, decorating the house, making Christmas cookies, celebrating my daughter's birthday, and cranking out some cards. 


Where's my elf?


Fa la la la la,

"worse than it looks"

Thcover thumbnailis is very self-serving, but I would love for anyone who wishes to have a look at my recently released book of poetry at Lulu.com .  Here is the way I described it on their site:


"Midwestern fictionista Tom Janikowski has crafted a collection of poetry drawn from his experiences working with people who have made bad choices - addicts, convicts, users, and the like. Written over the span of two years on the streets of the Quad Cities of Illinois and Iowa, the poems include many that appeared at his collaborative poetry site, "the lost beat," where he writes with his cousin, the poet Denise Janikowski-Krewal."


I appreciate your time and consideration!  Have a dandy day!
