Count Down Day 1 with Nina Croft

Thank you Nina! I am so pleased and honored to have my friend here. We met when she joined our critique group, Passionate Critters. From the get go, I have loved to read her books. Her writing is fabulous and I'm certain, some day down the road, that she'll be at the top of all the best seller lists. [don't blush, Nina. I'll stop, I promise. My starstruckness is going overboard.] My virtual bakery is open! Do you like cake?

NC: I don’t really like cake (except cheesecake, and chocolate mousse cake… hmmm maybe I do like cake after all.) But I love ice cream, any sort, though I’m particularly partial to chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream.

Tell me a little about your latest book. 

NC: My latest book is Blackmailed by the Italian Billionaire and it’s also my first contemporary romance. It was released in March  as part of Entangled Publishing’s Indulgence imprint. 

I think one of the reasons we read romance is to be transported to fabulous places and Blackmailed does just that, taking the reader from the English countryside, to sophisticated London, to a dreamy Italian island hideaway. Add to that a gorgeous hero, a strong heroine, and a pretty good reason why they can’t just fall in love and live happily ever after!

When you made that first sale, how did you celebrate?
NC: You know, I can’t remember how I celebrated – which probably means it involved lots of alcohol.  But I do remember getting the email; I think I screamed. That was in August 2009 and it was from Harlequin, for my Nocturne Bites, The Prophecy, which was released in February 2010.

If there was one book [story] you could live, which one would it be?

NC: It’s probably got to be a science fiction set in space. I always wanted ‘to boldly go where no man has gone before’ ever since first watching Star Trek a long, long time ago. So I’d like to live my Blood Hunter series and sign on with the crew of the space cruiser, El Cazador, and have adventures, and fall in love with a vampire or a werewolf or an alien or….

You introduced me to Firefly, and I will be forever grateful!

Are you a plotter or a panster?

NC: Well, I always wanted to be a pantser—one of those people who just sit down and wonderful stories flow from their fingertips. But I’m not. I’m a total plotter. But I’ve come to realize that it’s more complicated than that. I think it’s not so much that I need to plot as that I need to know my characters really, really well before I start to write. I need to think about them, work out what makes them tick, how they react to different circumstances and at some point there’s a magical moment when they start to talk to me. Only then can I begin to write. If I don’t wait for that then it’s a real struggle—every word has to be dragged out of me. 

If you could go anywhere this month, where would it be? 

NC: Am I going to sound boring if I say that this month, I’d like to stay at home? I live in the mountains of southern Spain and June is about my favorite time of year here. I love the sun, and June is perfect—hot but without the stifling heat of mid-summer. So if it’s okay, I’d like to download a whole lot of books onto my kindle and go lie by the pool or under the shade of an almond tree, with my dogs scattered around me and my man at my side.

Aw. Okay. ...Can I join you? Just for the afternoon, I mean. I'll bring a tent! And walk your pig... :D

But on to things writing. What’s your favorite thing about being a writer?

NC: Easy—I get to write. A lot. 

Good point. :P

Can you give me and my readers a hint about what you’re working on for your next books?

NC: I currently have a few projects on the go. I’ve just completed the extended version of my Sci-fi/paranormal romance, Break Out, book one of the Blood Hunter series, which is due to be released in August, and is currently with my editor. I have a second Indulgence coming later in the year, this time with a very sexy Spaniard.
Finally, I’m currently writing the first draft of a paranormal romance which is a sequel to a book I have coming out in September, Bittersweet Blood. 

Nina wants to share a copy of her newest book, Blackmailed by the Italian Billionaire, with one lucky commenter. I've read this book. It's a fun, witty yet emotionally satisfying story. Get in line to buy it. I don't think you'll be disappointed. :) 

Don't forget! Tomorrow is the big day. RELEASE DAY! 

Seduction by any means necessary…

Olivia Brent is happy with her quiet life in the country, until the imminent loss of her home forces her to embark on a search for her estranged father. Catapulted into a world of criminals and totally out of her depth, Olivia is rescued by the stunningly gorgeous and enigmatic billionaire Luc Severino.

Luc has never considered himself a knight in shining armor, and if he had been, then Jimmy Brent’s daughter was the last person he would choose to rescue. But Olivia is the key to finding her father, and Luc is willing to use any methods available, including blackmail, to persuade Olivia to help him find Jimmy and finally put the past behind him.

And if blackmail doesn’t gain her total cooperation, then perhaps a little seduction will…

Count Down Day 3 with Moira Keith

Welcome Moira! Thanks for coming over and blogging for me. It's Day THREE on my countdown to release!! Whoot!


If you were to ask me how I felt about helping out Bethanne with her release party by doing a guest blog post here on her site and to describe it in one word—I couldn't. Thrilled would be an understatement. Ecstatic? Nah—doesn't work either. Perhaps I should quit while I'm ahead and get down to business? Definitely!

I had no idea what to talk about today. Could talk about how I met Bethanne and we became the closest of friends, but that's a tale to regale you with another time. Like when we're fifty and sitting in rocking chairs at the old folks home and going through our 'remember when' phase. Instead I've decided to dish on something that I've seen is central to a lot of celebrations—especially seeing as how my darling friend has a thing for cakes and has asked each of her guests about the delectable dessert.  The only logical thing to do at that point was talk about cakes!

Of course, there is something I love more than talking about cake, and that's baking them. In small portions of course. You see, I'm a cupcake baking addict. Wait—it gets worse. My favorites include alcohol in them. I've even taken it a step further and started including that obsession passion into my writing. My current work in progress is a prime example of that. The heroine owns a cupcake store and she is a witch. Weaving in that element has been fun. It takes the writing to a different level for me. Allows me to incorporate something I love from my life, into that of my characters. Cupcakes I've shared in and off the page? Classic lime and strawberry margarita cupcakes, Bailey's Irish Crème cupcakes, and even an Irish Boilermaker have made their way into my hero's hearts as well as those of friends and family.

Other things I'm passionate about (or more aptly obsessed with) are things that are Celtic or magical. Those are themes that creep into many of my stories as well. And as we are speaking of passions and the way they weave their way into writing, I know my darling friend here has a passion for faith and family. Those themes work their way into her stories on a fairly consistent basis. So I must ask, what are some of your passions that work themselves into your writing? And if you are a reader, do you have favorite authors who's passions are evident through their works either due to a common theme or element you've noticed that pops up?

Countdown Day 4 -- GIVEAWAY with Jennifer Shirk

Four days until For Love of Duty is up for sale! I can't believe how fast the days have gone. From writing this story, through the editing, all the way til now... it's been like the blink of an eye. Part of that is because I am surrounded by such wonderful friends who keep me busy.

I first met [heard of] Jennifer Shirk on the Romance Divas forum. She was a quiet thing compared to some of the members over there. After joining Passionate Critters, I soon found out it wasn't that she was so quiet but that they were so loud. haha. :D Thanks for being here today, Jennifer, to help me celebrate my book release on Friday. Now, around here we eat cake and ice cream for just about any celebration. The virtual bakery is open with anything you want. What'll you have?

JS: I love chocolate cake—actually THIS recipe is my personal fav:
(only I skip the almonds.)
My fav ice cream is Moose tracks!!

Hey! Thanks for the recommendation. We love moose tracks around here, too. Have you ever had Mint Moose Tracks?

Tell me [and my readers] a little about your latest book?

JS: Sunny Days for Sam is my newest sweet romance.
Here’s the back cover blurb:
Sunnyva “Sunny” Fletcher is a firm believer in fairy tales. With the recent debt she’s acquired, the hope of something magical happening in her life is the only thing keeping her going. She needs a job fast. So when Sunny learns the sexy new vacationer in town is looking for a nanny, she starts to believe she just may have a fairy godmother after all!

Internet guru Sam Calloway is only in town for the summer and needs a nanny for his two small children. However, the beautiful and inexperienced Sunny is not exactly the kind of caregiver Sam has in mind. It doesn’t take long for Sunny’s tenderhearted and bubble-blowing ways to soon have the children—and Sam—enamored with her. She’s a dream come true. But after what Sam’s been through, he’s stopped believing in fairy tales long ago.

Sunny manages to work her way into Sam’s closed-off heart, but at the end of the summer, will the workaholic dad go back to his life in New York City, or will he decide his days are much sunnier here with Sunny?

I never did read the end of that...did I? I must have! But, I think I'm going to have to get a copy as soon as this interview is over. I love your characters, Jennifer. They are real people.

Give me some party advice for a new author. When you made that first sale--so long ago, how did you celebrate?
JS: I squealed to my critique partners first. LOL Then the hubby took me out to a nice dinner. Then when my book came out in print, he and my neighbors threw me a book release party! Now, THAT was awesome!

If there was one book [story] you could live, which one would it be?
Probably my first book: The Role of a Lifetime. It’d be kind of fun to have a handsome movie star in love with me. Just saying. J

Are you a plotter or a panster?
JS: PLOTTER. But even though I plot, nothing is written in stone and things still manage to change as I’m writing.

Oh! I know just what you mean. I feel like I have to plot, but the story sorta flows, changing things as it goes.

If you could go anywhere this month, where would it be? Tell me why!
Anywhere? I really would love to go to Italy. I’ve never been to Europe and since my hubby is half Italian…

 I knew there was a reason I liked your hubby! Half Italians are wonderful. :D

What’s your favorite thing about being a writer?
JS: I can make my own hours, wear whatever I want and don’t have to shower. LOL But I also love creating my characters—coming up with their names and quirks That’s the most fun.

It really shows, Jennifer. You have a way with characterization [that everyone should experience by reading your books]. :D

Can you give me and my readers a hint about what you’re working on for your next book?
Yes! I’m working on a book where I have my hero is a romance author—although don’t call him that. He prefers to be a called a “fictional author who puts romantic elements in his story”. J He really cracks me up. I’m already in love with him.

I can't wait to start reading.
Thanks for coming by today, Jennifer. It's a great way to spend a monday. :)

You can find Jennifer on her webpage, twitter, facebook, and goodreads.
Jennifer is giving away a copy of her book, Sunny Days for Sam.
Comment to win!! 

Sunny Days for Sam is available at

Count Down Day 5

Chocolate Cake Day!!!

Send me some... haha. Just Kidding.

Go get yourself some chocolate cake. I'm going to...chocolate cake with whipped cream. Oh yeah. YUM.


Tomorrow I take my formatted documents and upload them to the appropriate publishing arms of the great internet, digital WORLD. Since this is my first time, I want to be SURE that everything goes up smoothly and the book doesn't look like a hack job as far as formatting goes...

I might need the extra day to fix something. Who knows?

Have a great week, friends.
With Love,

Countdown Day 6 -- Silke Juppenlatz

Six days until the big day, the day my book goes up for sale! Whoot. I can't thank my crit partners enough for all the love and support they've given me. ...and the help. Because believe me, I've needed some help. But, today, I've got a good friend to introduce you to...

My crit partner, Silke Juppenlatz. When I joined Passionate Critters, I met Silke over one of my WW2 novels. Being new to the group, I was all starry eyed and smiley. Well, meeting her didn't change that. :D But she did draw out my protective streak--for my work and for the group itself. I like our Silke because she truly knows how to separate the wheat from the chaff. We are a strong group of writers, and it takes a strong person to join us and stick it out. Well, I did. I stuck it out and I'm better writer because of that...and because of her. 

Now, that I've scared all my readers. LOL :D Welcome to my blog, Silke!! Thanks for joining me on my countdown to Release Day! I've got my own virtual bakery on hand because you just can't celebrate without cake and ice cream. So, what'll you have?

SJ: Favorite cake...oohh...errmm... *scratches head* I’m a sucker for the cakes my gran used to make. Träublekuchen (Which, I guess, would be Redcurrant cake) Zwetschgenkuchen (Plum, or more precisely Damson cake) and there’s also the Rabarberkuchen (Rhubarb cake). Stollen!
Damn, I’m hungry now.
PS - Paul just went into the cupboard and yelled “Did you eat all the Jaffa Cakes again?!” (Guilty as charged. If you want Jaffa cakes in our house, best eat them before I see them.) Ice cream? Not so much. I can take it or leave it. But I am partial to the “Soft” Ice cream they do here in the UK. (Mr. Whippy ftw!) Or proper Italian Ice Cream (Stracciatella!).

I married a German so I like to think Silke and I are practically related... I'm constantly inspired by how much you write. What drives you to create your stories?

SJ: My brain. *cough* It’s like an ever churning story machine, and it goes from one “What if?” to the next. I see something, hear something, smell something -- and go “What if…?” And boom. There it is. It really can be anything at all. Something someone says. Something like the smell of bacon drifting out of a window. A forgotten, half deflated beach ball stuck in some hedge. Anything.
It’s weird though. I’m a master at brainstorming and I run with it -- but I can’t do it on my own stories. In them, I get stuck.
I don’t plot. I don’t even do an outline. Nothing. It comes out of my brain straight on the page. If I plot…I don’t finish it. It’s like a disease. Every time someone asks me where it’s going, and I try to come up with something, I lose interest the moment I have worked out what’s going to happen.
After all, I already know how it ends, why bother writing it down?
First and foremost, I write a story for myself. If I know how it ends, I lose interest and don’t finish it.
That’s why I never plot. :)

Now, that is a little crazy...and interesting too. I can see your point, though.
You've got a book coming out later this summer. You want to tell us a little about it? Just a tease...? How about a one word description to wet our appetites?

SJ: One word? Yikes. Okay. “Betrayal”. There it is. :)
As for a tease… If you’ve read “Howl”, then you’ve met the heroine of “Watch Me” -- but not the hero. This is Tiffy’s story and while it follows on from “Howl”, it’s standalone and you don’t need to have read “Howl” to get what’s going on. You’ll meet characters from “Howl”, and you’ll get to meet new ones. Like…Keric, who is hot and sexy and on a mission. But his mission is set to clash with Tiffy’s fragile heart and…well. Best read it, eh?
Watch Me is scheduled for release in August.

I do have a third one in mind…but…something came up. :)

I’m working on a February 2013 release right now. It’s part of a series, and mine is Caedir (Gatekeepers - Book 2). Nope, not werewolves this time…

OMG! Are you really going to do it?! Not werewolves...does that mean?? No. Don't answer that. I love your stories....

So, tell me. When you made your first sale, how did you celebrate?

SJ: I was actually pretty gobsmacked. (Now there’s a Brit word for you.) I’d written Howl in a week (No, I pretty much didn’t sleep.), submitted it -- and had the contract land -- all in the space of 10 days. Seriously. From the first word to putting my X on the dotted line…ten days.
So yeah, I sat there with my chin on the floor, staring at that email. I didn’t think it would be accepted. I’d sent out quite a few stories before, usually targeting agents, and generally got back good feedback, but no offers.
I don’t remember how I celebrated. :) It’s all a blur lol.

Seems like it comes when we least expect it. :) Love your story, Silke.

If there was one book--of all the books and stories you've ever read--that you could live, which one would it be?

SJ: Oh wow, that’s a hard one!
I don’t think I’d want to live any of them. It would mean I’d have to give up my real life hero, and I’m just not prepared to do that. :) I have favorite books, ‘natch. My all time favorite read is Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistlestop Café. I think every woman should read this at least once.
It’s a book about being yourself, self-discovery, overcoming opposition and just…having fun.
It just really appeals to my inner rebel.

What a great answer! My instinct is to want to live the fantasy even if I do have a real life hero. :D

Some people have kids. Some people have dogs. You have a horse, which I've seen pictures of and it's gorgeous. Does this mean you'll be coming out to visit me soon in the wild, wild west?? I can find a stable for you...and horses too. And mountains... just sayin'.

SJ: You know…I want to visit every state in the US at least once. (Though a few I’ve done repeatedly already.) If I can afford it, I will most definitely come and visit you in the Wild, Wild West. :) That’s somewhere top of my list, actually. I want to stand somewhere in the prairie and just soak up the atmosphere. Mainly because I cannot imagine such a vast space. So Wyoming, Colorado and Montana are top of the top of the top places to go see. Arizona too. But I love the Deep South and the East Coast states and would happily live somewhere like North Carolina or Kentucky.
People always worry about what I might enjoy seeing. You know what? Package holidays and tourist attractions can go hang, as far as I’m concerned. One of my favorite memories is a Halloween spent trick or treating with a friend’s kids. I had a ton of fun. Or the summer where I got drafted into helping the trainee EMT’s at a friend’s fire station. I spent half the day being put in traction by hunky firemen lol… Then there was sitting in the grass behind some tiny out of the way ice cream parlor, munching totally spectacular ice cream. What can I say…? It beats any tourist attraction, any day, hands down. I want to see what you’d likely consider totally mundane and not worth seeing. Real life, real people. And quite frankly--I’ve never met anyone over there who wasn’t nice and helpful. Maybe I was just lucky, but I think Americans get a bad rep for no reason. I have yet to meet anyone who didn’t go out of their way to make my stay enjoyable, and that goes for all the states I’ve ever been to -- and that’s quite a few, over the years.
For that I’d like to say a hearty “Thank you. You guys are awesome.” :)
Ohh… Mountains tempt me. Having grown up in Germany, and spending over half my childhood skiing down some black run somewhere in the alps…yeah. It’s something I truly miss in the UK.
They have “Mountains” here, but erm…sorry. If you’re used to something like Mont Blanc (15,782ft) or the Zugspitze (9,718ft and a glacier), then Mount Snowdon (highest “Mountain” in Wales, a whopping 3,560ft) is more like a steep rocky hill to me.
I would LOVE to see the Rocky Mountains, but forgive me if I stay about 50ft away from the edge of the Grand Canyon…I have a fear of falling lol. (I’ll go right down the middle at low level in an aircraft, no problem.) Believe it or not, one of my dreams is to go East Coast to West Coast on horseback. If I could afford to, I'd get started tomorrow. (And if anyone would like to know my choice of horse: I'd take a Paso Fino and a Rocky Mountain. A Paso because I own one and just love his character, and a Rocky because I want one for much the same reason. Plus side? Both are gaited, and the most comfortable rides you could wish for--unless their name is Oscuro, and he has to get there really, really FAST.) 
I'll swing by when I do that East-West crossing, okay?

Yes! I can't wait...for you to win the lottery. :D 
Like you, I think I'll have chocolate cake, too when this countdown is over...and a nice glass of Merlot! Thank you so much for stopping by and sharing your stories with us. 

I can't wait until August! When you get a cover for that thing, come on by again that Caedir cover! It's fantastic. :D

Count Down to June 8th with Debora Dennis

Ack! Seven Days. I said it would go fast! I just didn't realize how fast until it snuck up on me and bit me in the... *cough* uh, behind.

I'm excited though, because for a week, I'm going to celebrate my book release with my closest friends. You...and my wonderful writing friends from Passionate Critters. Years ago, when I joined PC, I met Debora Dennis. She's the mother figure in our group, always with an encouraging word or a firm reminder to do what's right., she's from my corner of the world, and on my last visit there, I got to stop in and have coffee with her. :D And it was just like we'd  done it a dozen times before. When my husband poo-poos the idea of meeting and truly making friends online, I have proof through Deb and my friends at PC that it is possible.

Thanks for being here, Deb! I've got my virtual bakery open because in my house, a celebration doesn't go by that doesn't include Cake and Ice Cream. So, what'll you have?

DD: Ice cream cake - I'm a sucker for the Carvel cakes with those chocolate crunchies in the middle yummo!
Oh man! Do you know what i remember and love about Carvel? We'd go during the summer with my grandparents and if you ordered a cup of ice cream with sprinkles, they POURED the sprinkles on with a fairly generous hand. I love sprinkles!

My followers know that I love history. Which is the reason why I can't wait to get a hold of your new book, A Pirate in Her Dreams. What do you love that drew you towards writing a story about pirates?

DD: History has always been something I loved, it was always my favorite subject in school. But, true to my eclectic style, I can't say that there is any one particular time in history I love the most. When a hero pops into my mind, he usually shows up dressed in period clothing and I hear accents in my head - that's when I know where I'm taking my readers next. My next hero happens to be a pirate and it's truly been a fun adventure.

Your most recent book is your first Indie Published book. Of your four books, which was the most fun to create?

DD:Whatever I'm currently working on is always fun, because I'm going to someplace new (in case you're wondering, I am known in my house for not paying any attention to my GPS and making turns to the unknown. There's just something special about finding some place new!) Indie Publishing give me the opportunity to take my readers to new times and places, and I love that.

Which Hero/Heroine pair is your favorite? [Mine is still Fistful of Fate's William and Rebecca!] I love their story, a true ghost tale. You captured my attention with that one, Deb.

DD: William and Rebecca from A Fistful of Fate will always have a special place in my heart, probably because they were truly my first couple. Their bond across two hundred years still resonates with me, I'm so thrilled to hear that they touched you too, Bethanne!

When you made that first sale, how did you celebrate? 

DD: My husband brought me home flowers and a chocolate mousse cake (and I think I ate most of it myself!)
That does sound good, though...

If there was one book--of all the books and stories you've ever read--that you could live, which one would it be?

DD: Something Wonderful by Judith McNaught. Alexandra Lawrence is just an average country girl and when she first meets her hero, the Duke of Hawthorne, she has no idea who he is, only that he's a man being robbed at gunpoint by highway thieves - she rushed to his rescue dressed in armor astride her twenty year old horse. She's a heroine with moxy and I was instantly drawn to her. 

Tell me about your next project? Will you continue on with Indie Publishing?

DD: When my pirate story is done, my next project will take me to the old west! Right now I plan to write my adventures in whatever time period calls to me. I will continue to explore all my publishing options with each and every book.

Oh yes! I love that you feature stories from all different eras. I've read a few good westerns, too! :)

Thank you  for being here, Deb. I wouldn't have gotten this far without your help and the help I've received from all the gals at PC.

DD: Thanks Bethanne, for giving me the opportunity to join in the thrilling ride of celebrating your first release!

Deb is offering a copy of her book, A Knight in her Arms to one lucky commenter. :D It's a good one! A time travel, too.


Hannah Falcon loves her job cataloging medieval artifacts and setting up the displays at the Natural History Museum in New York City. What she doesn’t love is her friends insisting she date more. When a man dressed as a medieval knight shows up in the museum, Hannah mistakes him for her friend’s latest attempt at a blind date.

Sir Gavin of Rogueforth is a battle-hardened twelfth century knight who expects nothing more from life than to live and die by his sword. Sent through time to protect a woman named Hannah and claim her as his own, he expects a reward. He doesn’t expect a woman who refuses to be protected.

Can one passionate night, ten days before Christmas, convince a twenty-first century woman to follow her heart and show a medieval knight there's more to life than being a protector?

Brain Dead

That's a little how I feel right now.
Busy week... plus all the mental energy of putting this book release together.
I'm trying to stay in a calm place. It's mostly working, but when I sit down to write something on my blog and I have no thoughts to share. I know I've thought of things to write about but without writing them down, my brain can't conjure them up.

Give me a minute....

Oh yeah. My book that comes out in a week and a day. It's the different one. I've written romantic suspense [RS] for years, when out of nowhere, I decide I'm going to squeeze out a contemporary romance. What's the difference? Mainly, the mystery and intrigue. But also, the heat level. There's something about an RS that lends itself to a few steamy[ish] scenes--what is it about life-threatening crises that makes us hold onto a loved one so desperately? Or, as we see in RS novels, makes us bond with the first attractive body that enters, stage left? 

Like I said, my book For Love or Duty is contemporary romance. It's also sweet. I'd be tempted to call it a love story because it has that feel to it, but it's not. Love story is more about growing love rather than finding love. The romance is qualified by the boy meets girl. boy and girl fall in love. boy and girl have conflict, making the reader wonder if they'll be together forever. Blackmoment... and resolution, including Happily Ever After. Mine has all that, too. It just doesn't have the sex. 

Is it a thing for me? No. I didn't do it for moral reasons. It's actually the story that drives the heat level of my books. This one did not lend itself to those kind of scenes. Timing was too short, for one. People don't really get physical within weeks of meeting each other... do they?! 

No. Don't answer that.

Last but not least, the military aspect of this book. It could be a little off. I've learned a few things since my husband joined the Army. Not enough. Army life is surely a mystery to be learned over a lifetime. My main character is a Captain... with a name like Morgan, how could he not be? He executes a job I'm pretty sure a company commander would not do. I've been told, NCOs get shit done. So, if messed up details like that really bug you... you should buy my book, anyway[what did you think? I'd discourage you?]. I don't mind being proven wrong. If you're buying my book, you can prove me the Queen of Sheba and I'd smile and ring for room service. hahaha. 

This book was a work in progress a good year before my husband joined the Army. That's my excuse for any missed/inaccurate details. As my knowledge grows, so will by work. 

That's what writing is all about. A detail here, a detail there...
Rome wasn't built in a day [and a book should never have cliches!]. :D
Come back tomorrow for my first day on the countdown to RELEASE! I'll be giving away a copy of A Knight in Her Arms by Debora Dennis. 8 DAYS!

With Love,
