Here’s a Friday wrap-up of book news and other fun things that I stumbled across this week:

1. ASSASSIN’S TOUCH made Amazon’s top 100 Kindle Romance Anthologies list! (That’s the category for short stories and short story collections.) Thank you, Readers! I’m totally thrilled that so many are reading the first installment in the Iron Portal series. 


2. The Kindle Fire contest I’m running with Alexis Morgan and Erin Kellison wraps up on Monday. Have you entered yet? One lucky random winner will get a brand new Kindle Fire, an ebook from each of our backlists, and a $50 giftcard. Click here for the details.

3. For you Magic Mike/Joe Manganiello fans, here’s a link to his 4 favorite press tour moments while he was promoting the movie. Warning: For the sake of your computer, set down your drink before you press play.

4. I’ve been a reluctant exerciser lately, how about you? To help me stay motivated, I just downloaded the Interval Run app. A friend on Twitter (@DawnMariaAZ) recommended it, so I thought I’d try it out. You can customize your intervals and listen to your regular workout music on your iPod Touch or iPhone. It’s great for people at any fitness level.

5. Now that I’ve talked about working out, in case you missed it, here’s my family’s favorite cookie recipe.


Did you know there’s a Sweetblood story in the anthology A VAMPIRE FOR CHRISTMAS?
