The Daily Word in Goth Style, Therapy and Local Fires

The Daily Word

Did I hear you ask, “When will someone make a compilation of goth style?” Well...

Whenever I tell people they should see a therapist (because I tell everyone that) I usually receive a scoff as a response, and you know what, that's totally reasonable because most people can't afford it. But why?

Summer Lovin'

Four N.M. Romance Authors Join Forces

Paranormal author Darynda Jones, along with romance authors Celeste Bradley, Susan Donovan and Katie Lane, join forces at 4pm on Saturday, July 2, to celebrate a "Hot, Sultry Summer of Love" at Page One Books with their latest releases.
Jones is promoting her tenth Charley Davidson paranormal effort, The Curse of Tenth Grave. Bradley's latest romance novel is I Thee Wed: Wicked Worthington Book 1, Donovan's newest effort is Moondance Beach: A Bayberry Novel, and Lane's newest romance is A Billionaire After Dark, the second in her "Overnight Billionaires" series.
Jones' tenth Charley effort is described as such: " As a part-time PI and full-time grim reaper, Charley Davidson has asked a lot of questions throughout her life: Why can I see dead people? Who is the hot supernatural entity following me? How do I get gum out of my sister’s hair before she wakes up? But, “How do I trap not one malevolent god, but three?” was never among them. Until now. And since those gods are on Earth to kill her daughter, she has little choice but to track them down, trap them and cast them from this dimension. There’s just one problem. One of the three stole her heart a very long time ago. Can the Razer, a god of absolute death and destruction, change his omniscient spots, or will his allegiances lie with his brothers? Those are just a few of the questions Charley must answer, and quick."

Bradley's I Thee Wed is teased as such: "Intelligent and driven, Orion Worthington aspired to be like his mentor, the acclaimed scientist Sir Geoffrey Blayne. Logically, Sir Geoffrey’s daughter would be Orion’s perfect match. So why can’t he keep his mind off the unruly girl who works in Sir Geoffrey’s lab? Orphaned fire-cracker Francesca Penrose hopes that London is modern enough to accept her brilliant mind despite her womanhood. But she can’t help noticing Orion’s mind ... or his body. So they decide to run an experiment: if they give in to their passions, their attraction will simply fizzle out, with no impact on their hearts ... right?"

In Donovan's "Bayberry" novel, "It might take more than a magical mermaid statue to bring together a hard-headed Navy SEAL and the mysterious artist who’s loved him from afar ... Duncan Flynn long ago said goodbye to his hometown of Bayberry Island, Mass., where a mermaid statue allegedly grants true love to the pure at heart. So when the injured Navy SEAL gets sent home—just in time to help his family prepare for the annual Mermaid Festival—he’s not in the mood to celebrate. Nor fall in love. But during a night run on the beach, a magnificently naked woman emerges from the surf who bears an uncanny resemblance to the mermaid in Fountain Square. Adelena Silva’s otherworldly mermaid paintings have made her famous and wealthy, but Lena herself is a recluse—at least until Duncan Flynn comes home."

And Lane's Billionaire After Dark is thus described: "It's an undisputed fact that Nash Beaumont is the hottest of the Beaumont brothers. His slow, sensual smile charms every French Kiss employee-and tempts every woman to buy the company's lingerie. But beneath Nash's raw charisma is a dark, kinky side that he struggles to control ... a side that may be exposed by one lovely—and unexpectedly adventurous woman. Reporter Eden Huckabee needs a story. And when she discovers Nash's dirty little secret, she thinks she's found it. But Eden doesn't count on Nash turning the tables on her—or that she will fall so deeply for this unbelievably sexy, one-in-a-billion Beaumont."

Jones, a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, won a Golden Heart Award for best paranormal for her manuscript First Grave On The Right. As a born storyteller, she grew up spinning tales of dashing damsels and heroes in distress for any unfortunate soul who happened by, annoying man and beast alike. Jones moved to Albuquerque from Portales in 2015 with her husband. They have two sons.

Bradley is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of more than twenty Regency romance novels, including The Wicked Worthington, The Runaway Bride, The Heiress Brides, The Royal Four, and The Liar’s Club series. She has twice been nominated for the RITA award by the Romance Writers of America. Before becoming a writer in 1999, Celeste was an artist, specializing in pottery and ceramic sculpture. Shes lives in Albuquerque.

Donovan is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of dozens of novels, including The Sweetest Summer and Sea of Love, and a novella in Christmas on Main Street. She lives in Placitas.

Lane started writing in fifth grade when she wrote a fictional story about being a skirt(yes, you read that correctly. The story was told in first-skirt rather than first-person). Since then, she's stuck to telling stories about people. Going Cowboy Crazy was her first "Deep in the Heart of Texas" novel. She lives in Albuquerque with her high school sweetheart.
