Jennifer Estep posted an awesome update about the ENTANGLED anthology, with all proceeds going to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. If you get a chance to read it, please do. I’ve shared her information on Twitter and Facebook, in case you’d like to share as well. Since this is Breast Cancer Awareness month, it’s a small step for womankind. (Corny, but couldn’t resist.)

I’m also talking about my writing journey and the fire in my soul at Magical Musings.

Other than that, the Packers won last night, we had much needed rain, and I should have MIRACLE LANE available this week. It’s a good month for me. I hope it is for you, too.

I’ve been so busy lately, I haven’t posted on my blog. ENTANGLED, A PARANORMAL ANTHOLOGY is getting fabulous reviews. A generous donor is matching all royalties on sales through October 20th to give to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Bestselling author Phil Hawley will also “give a copy of STIGMA to anyone who purchases the anthology during this period.” You can read more about both offers here. I’m awed by all the support we’ve been getting.

In addition to ENTANGLED, I have a short story and an essay in two other anthologies with proceeds going to charities: ANY WITCH WAY BUT WICKED and AUTHOR MOMENTS. I belatedly updated my website. Just click on the links and find out more. I have excerpts!

I finished the first draft of a GALAXY GIRLS novella. After that I plan to write a DEAD PEOPLE short story. I’ll give the short story to my newsletter subscribers for free. About six years ago, Karin Tabke and I co-wrote a fun mystery. We still love it and plan on self-publishing it in November.

I have something extra planned that should be fun, but I’m not ready to talk about it yet. On the TV front, I’m hooked on the new show Revenge, and I’m disappointed in this seasons Project Runway contestants. But I still love Tim Gunn and Heidi. For the most part I limit myself to one show a night. Sometimes no shows. What have you been doing?

Lori Brighton and I are at Book Girl of Mur-y-Castell talking about our stories in entangled and future books. We’re giving away 4 books: 2 of Entangled, a Paranormal Anthology; 1 Galaxy Girls; 1 To Seduce an Earl. Comment and get a chance to win!

If you have time, check out this double review of Entangled. It’s fun to see how subjective this is. They don’t always have the same opinion. They both liked my story, though. Lis said, “It’s an awesome story with a surprising ending.” Blodeuedd said, “What a cute story about Tory and her adopted cat Samson.” I love “awesome,” but I’ll take “cute.”

I got a fantastic review for Galaxy Girls yesterday, at Lilac Wolf and Stuff. “I have to add Edie Ramer to my growing list of fabulous authors that are writing stories better than you find on the New York Best Seller List.” It was a fabulous way to start the day!

You also have a chance to win Galaxy Girls and books by other writers at Small Blogs, Big Giveaways. It’s open through the 23rd. So, go forth and win!

Reading Romances is hosting a fun giveaway event, with many prizes including gift cards! Laurie from Laurie’s Interviews let me be in on it. I’m giving away two e-copies of my books. One of Entangled, a Paranormal Anthology, with all proceeds going to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. And one of my sci fi/paranormal romance Galaxy Girls.

Here’s the short blurb for Entangled, a Paranormal Anthology:

Ghosts, vampires, demons, and more! Entangled includes ten suspense-filled paranormal short stories from authors Cynthia Eden, Jennifer Estep, Edie Ramer, Lori Brighton, Michelle Diener, Misty Evans, Nancy Haddock, Liz Kreger, Dale Mayer, and Michelle Miles, plus a Seven Deadly Sins novella by Allison Brennan.

Stacia Kane contributed the foreword. Formatting and cover art were also donated to the project by Lori Devoti and Laura Morrigan.

I’m also giving away my sci fi/paranormal romance Galaxy Girls. It’s a mix of fun with serious stuff that matters. I call it my homage to the Gilmore Girls – if they came from another planet and used pheromones as weapons. (Wouldn’t that be cool to do?)

Genetically created to be broodmares, Phyrne Galaxy and her mother, aunt and cousin don’t need men, they need freedom. They escaped from the warring planet of Kergeron to Earth, where Phyrne’s aunt’s vision of winning money in a New Jersey casino comes true. Too bad her aunt’s precog didn’t show the hoods waiting outside with guns. But Phyrne has her own weapon, more powerful than bullets. She’s ovulating.

Phyrne turns up the heat, taking out more than the crooks in her wave of sexual torture. FBI Special Agent Hawk Higgens, running to protect the women, is brought to his knees, too. Caught in her procreative spell, Phyrne ravishes Hawk.

Being seduced by an alien and left half naked and unconscious in the back of a surveillance van changes Hawk’s life. He joins the Foundation, a privately funded agency that hunts aliens. Six years later, the reason for his career change pops back on the radar in a tea shop in Kentucky. The woman whose face still haunts his dreams has an addition to her family – a five-year-four-month-old daughter.

At the same time, two Kergeron warriors are sent to Earth to bring the women back to their home planet. With an ex-FBI agent and two alien warriors on her trail, Phyrne’s calm life running the Tea & Comfort shop is about to get shaken, stirred and screwed.

Both books have gotten awesome reviews. I’m proud of both of them.
