Um… Xanadu…?

A. Catherine Noon here, pinch-hitting for the letter "X" for the A to Z Challenge.  Let's see.  X.  X marks the spot?  No, did that last year.  X post facto?  No, too esoteric.  What about an X name?  Xander... Xanadu... In Xanadu did Kubla Khan - yes!  Xanadu!  It was a movie, and a famous poem, and a wonder of the world, was it not?  Let's go find out, sez I!  Intrepid ex...

Ella Sheridan, Only for the Weekend, If Only, contemporary romance, BDSM romance, romantic erotica, erotic romance, romance in Las Vegas
Earlier this month I shared "C Is for Cover," showing off (because I can't help but show it off!) the cover for my next BDSM romance, ONLY FOR THE NIGHT. Today, as we begin to wind down the month of April and our A to Z challenge, I want to share a little bit about my hero in the first book of this series, Vincent. She’s his completely…but only for the weekend. When a roc...

Under Cover

2016-04-25 Pic 1
A. Catherine Noon here, with some thoughts on spies.  Under cover operatives are a common theme in romance novels.  Rightly so, in my view; they're fun to write and fun to read.  But it's even more fun to be one. No, I'm not about to confess I was a spy in another life.  But I have been a spy in order to write. A popular writing exercise is to record snippets of conve...

Pictures Worth a Thousand Words

2016-05-19 Pic 1
Greetings, Dear Reader!  A. Catherine Noon here, with some thoughts on images.  Pictures.  Pics.  Snaps.  Cams.  They're ubiquitous now.  A great quote from a television show, "Instagram is Twitter for people who can't read."  While funny, I think it's unfair.  What's charming about it is that we can share moments of our lives with each other.  The more we practice a thing,...

Books, Books, and More Books!

20141004_0010
Books.  I love books.  I love the smell of them - that almost grassy paper smell.  I read somewhere that scientists have discovered there really is an "old book smell," composed of decomposing paper.  That's sort of gross, actually.  But whatever it is, I like it. I love the feel of paper books, particularly that lost animal, the "mass market paperback."  I like them bec...

Wednesday’s Wild Ride Around the Web with Aunt Noony

Crazy
I did a Noony.  To those of you that know me, this will not be a surprise.  ~grin~  But I'm starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel.  Next time, remind me that launching not one but two new websites the week that A-Z starts, and two weeks before RT, might not be the brightest idea ever. But hey.  What's life for if not living? So, the biggest news is... Th...

Wednesday’s Wild Ride Around the Web with Aunt Noony

2012-09-08 pic
I don't know about you, but my day planner is a wormhole.  I put stuff into it and it multiplies, like rabbits, until there's way more in it than can possibly fit.  But, unlike a Tardis, the stuff filling my day planner is stuff to do.  There's always more stuff to do than time, at least in Noonyland.  Take today, for instance.  I have a few hours this morning to do things ...

SINtillating Saturday

I thought I'd share the inspiration for my latest hero, Daire Rousseau, who will make an appearance in my Small Town Secrets Book 2, BEHIND THE SCARS. It goes up for pre-order soon. But as I'm going through the edits, I'm falling for Daire all over again. What about you?       Happy Sexy Saturday! Dani Wade Book 1 in the Small Town Secrets series, BEN...
