Oh My Monday!

Greetings my beautiful little love monkeys!

This morning started with a performance from our family Drama Llama, otherwise known as Thing Two. But I flat-out REFUSE to let that dictate how my week will go. Of course, having said that Murphy and his proverbial Law will most likely take a huge chunk out of my ass, or at least try to 😉

But enough about that, guess what? On Saturday lovely Miss Julie over at A Tale of Many Reviews did a little video teaser and guess what one of the books was that she teased about? YEP! CAT O’ NINE TAILS!! Can you believe it? She has been such a huge supporter of Cat O’ Nine Tails and all of Omnific Publishing’s works! Head on over and take a watch here.

So, if you tuned in on Friday you saw the SWAG that is going to be available and also don’t forget to sign up for one of the two copies of Cat O’ Nine Tails over on Goodreads!

Alrighty, so back to the last two reintroduction!

Today we have Maura Sullivan…

She’s shy and quite, but there is more to the blushing young maiden than meets the eye. Sometimes the most seemingly docile creatures turn out to be the most deadly.

And our villainess! Queen Winifred…

She rules with an iron fist and lets nothing stand in the way of what she wants. Nothing!

Da, da, duuuuuuuuun!

Well, that is all for now my loves! Stay tuned for Friday for your Happy Friday post and one more thing before I give you back to your day…


Not gonna lie, I’m equal parts excited and scared to death LOL!

Have a good week lovelies!

Until next time,

Patty ❤


Oh My Monday!

Greetings my squishy little love monkeys!

Tis a good week for your little mama monkey! Why is that you ask?


Not that I don’t love my youngins, but good gravy, mommy needs her mommy time man.

So, have you been checking in on my Facebook page or Twitter for your daily Cat O’ Nine Tails quotes? Easiest way to make sure you don’t miss them is to “like” my Facebook page or follow me on Twitter. The links are to the left, under my goofy little picture, but I’ll make it even easier for you because I love you just THAT much! Just click the little buttons below…

Also, I’ve been hard at work creating something fabulous for you, Cat O’ Nine Tails Romance Trading Cards! That’s right, Romance Trading Cards are all the rage with romance fans and so I thought I’d throw my cards in the ring! Check out the Romance Trading Card site and see who else has cards! As soon as mine are up and running I plan on sending them over there to be added 😀

Okay, onto re-introducing you to some of my favorite characters! Now, last week I brought you back to Aeron and Orrin, our heroine and hero but I have brand-spanking-new photos so not only am I going to re-introduce you to two characters but I’m also going to show you the new Aeron and Orrin photos!

Alrighty, first let’s do the re-intro, shall we?

First I have for you Orrin’s younger brother and first mate, Kale Walsh…

He’s a wickedly beautiful ladies man who seduces women for sport, leaving a trail of very satisfied women and the occasional very angry husband in his wake. He’s a rake and he loves it, but is that really all there is to him?

And next let’s take a look at one of our royals, Prince William…

The young prince is unsure of his place in the world and tends to follow his heart, all the way to Aeron’s island and part of her crew. But what happens when her affections are stolen away from him by pirate hunter Orrin?

And now, the pretty new photos of our leading lady, Aeron Lynch and Orrin Walsh…

YEOW! Dang they are pretty, pretty people aren’t they?

Well, that is all I have for you today my darlings, please stay tuned for your Happy Friday post and be good little love monkeys this week!

Until next time,


Oh My Monday!

Hola my dandy little love monkeys!

So, a bit of news, I had my first official interview today with Mark Archuleta at KHTS AM1220 Hometown Station! Not gonna lie, I was nervous as HECK! I made sure I cursed up a storm before I got on the call so I wouldn’t swear at the guy as the nerves tend to make me curse like a sailor. Okay, so I curse like a sailor anyway, but the nerves make it worse. You can read the interview here and hopefully I didn’t sound like an illiterate dillhole.

Also, starting today, I will be Facebooking/tweeting a quote from Cat O’ Nine Tails everyday until its release on August 30th, so make sure you check that out for a bit o’ the pirate 😉

Alrighty, as promised I am back with a bit of re-introduction to Cat O’ Nine Tails cast of characters! We are going to start with our two main characters, naturally! I’m sure you all remember our leading lady, the tough as nails she-pirate, Aeron Lynch…

She is a sea-faring beauty that prefers to use her feminine wiles to get what she wants, however, she doesn’t think twice about utilizing her skills with a sword when the occasion faces her.

And let us not forget our leading man, the straight-laced bounty hunter, Orrin Walsh…

Dang he’s pretty…sorry, got distracted…He is the guy that “always gets his man” but things turn wonky when his “man” is a woman that stirs feelings in him that he never thought he’d ever have, especially for a pirate.

I would also like to congratulate Tracy Beard for winning the latest e-ARC in the Sizzling Summer Author Extravaganza! Congrats girlie, I hope you enjoy 🙂

Hold onto your wee little love monkey butts because there is even MORE news!

Yours truly has made it to the official Omnific Publishing site as “Omnific’s first Historical Romance!” and later this week we will be debuting Cat O’ Nine Tails book trailer!! YAY!!

I have to say I’m truly excited about all that is happening and things are just flying by at mach 9,000, I hope you are all having fun with this as well because without all of you, I’d just be some chick sitting around in her living room talking to herself about the people who live in her head 😉

Stay tuned my gorgeous little love monkeys, I will have more goodies for you later in the week!

Until next time,

Patty ❤

Happy Friday: All Aboard

Happy Friday my cheeky little love monkeys! Did you smite the June Gloom with your delightful little sunshiny selves this week? Darn right you did!

Okies my darlings, today we have official b’ness so brace yourselves. If you took a peeky-poo at the first blog mention by A Tale of Many Reviews you read that Cat O’ Nine Tails was to release in September and you may have said to yourselves, “But, Patty told us the release was in August.” *cue collective confused faces* Have no fear my sweets, unfortunately things happen that are beyond the realm of mortal control and dates change, but it’s all good! The new release date for Cat O’ Nine Tails is September 20th!

Now, no frowny faces because I have a bit of news that will cheer you right up!

Next month I will be participating in Lisa Sanchez’s Sizzling Summer Author Extravaganza! What is that you ask? It’s an extravaganza of sizzling summer author awesomeness, silly! Seriously though, authors will guest blog many with exclusive giveaways of books and swag! YAY! Free bits!!

So, I hear your wee little voices saying, “But Patty, your book isn’t due out until September, what do YOU have to giveaway?”

I’m so glad you asked my lovelies! I will be giving away an ARC (Advanced Readers Copy) of Cat O’ Nine Tails! That’s right my crunchy love monkeys, you, yes YOU, can be one of the very first people to get your pirate on! I’m super excited about it, I hope that you are too!

Well, I was going to leave that as your Friday treat because that is a lot  of information in one little blog, but I can’t just leave you all with nothing to look at!

So, I will introduce you to Aeron’s pride and joy, the one thing she treasures above all else, her beloved ship, The Mermaid…

She is a beautiful vessel, is she not?

She flies her colors proudly

But really, don’t you think Aeron would fly this flag?

It’s like it was made for her!

Well my darlings, I must get my hind-end in gear, I have an assload of things to do today in prep for the weekend! Gonna be having my daddy and my brother over for Father’s Day! They are great fathers, as is my amazing husband! So give the fathers in your life some love this weekend! However, as much as I love my pops, he’s still not allowed to read Cat O’ Nine Tails 😉

Late Night Update!

Well hidey ho my little love monkeys!

Yeah, it’s a wee bit late in the evening for some, but I’m a west coast gal, so it’s not too horribly late for moi 😉

Anyhoo, I just had to pop in and share a link with all of my darlings!

A Tale of Many Reviews has posted an excerpt from Cat O’ Nine Tails! That’s right, your truly has had her first big blog mention! Can a get a group squee?


I’m so excited and honored to have been mentioned, you have no idea! Miss Julie B has been a great supporter of Cat O’ Nine Tails and I am so grateful for that support, it means the world to me!

Okay little love monkeys, I just had to share that little bit with you! Also, there is some new little linky-poos on the right there—————->

There’s one in particular that I will tell you more about on Friday, so hold tight on that one 😉

Have a good night my loves and stay tuned for Friday!

Until next time,

Patty ❤

Happy Friday Introductions:Rounding Out the Cast!

Happy Happy Friday my sweet little dumplings! Did you look this week in the face and proclaim, your collective awesomeness? Yeah ya did!

So, this week I had a bit of a “HOLY CRAP” moment. Yes, this week it occurred to me that it is three months until the release of Cat O’ Nine Tails! That’s right, a mere twelve weeks until my baby is released into the world. And yes, this “HOLY CRAP” moment hit me like a brick and literally stopped me in my tracks as I was bopping through my family room to which I actually said out loud, “OH HOLY CRAP!”

I have to admit, everything has been going so fast that I can’t believe it’s really happening. Of course, now that I said that, the next three months are going to crawl by with an unGodly slowness. But there is still so much to do in that little bit of time. There’s a book trailer to make, the cover design, one more round of developmental edits, managerial edits and let us not forget I have to find a place to stick in the random “HOLY CRAP” moments.


Okay, let’s move onto important business, the final introduction!

Now, the final Cat O’ Nine Tails character I’d like to introduce you to is…


This young man is Danish male model Mathias Lauridsen.  He really struck me as Will when I saw him.  Fresh, young with a regal edge.  Now, that regal edge is very important because William in Queen Winifred’s son.

That’s right, he’s a prince but what on earth is he doing as part of Aeron’s pirate crew?

You will have to read Cat O’ Nine Tails to find out!

Okay, this picture is not of Mr. Mathias Lauridsen nor do I know who this young man is.  But to be completely frank, I don’t really care, he’s pretty and he reminded me of Will.  Yeah, I know, I’m sorry to torture you with the pretty, but I’m sure you will all survive 😉

Now, before you despair over the fact that this is the last introduction, let me assure you all that I would NEVER leave my love monkeys twisting in the wind.  No I will not!  I will find some sort of treat for you every Friday because that’s just how I roll!  I take care of my darling little poppets!  You are just going to have to stay tuned to see what I can come up with for you next week 🙂

Don’t forget, these pretty pictures will be available for your viewing pleasure via my Facebook!  You may also tweet me and Goodreads me or you can just subscribe to this little blog if that’s what turns your crank.  All links to the upper right.

Have a great weekend, my squinchy little love monkeys, and to all the mommies out there have a FABULOUS Mother’s Day!  I know I’m going to, the hubs and spawns are taking me to see Thor tonight, in 3D!  I may actually need a bib because Chris Hemsworth is yu-hu-hummy!

Until next time,

Patty ❤

Happy Friday Introductions!

Happy Friday my little love monkeys! Was this week good to you? Yeah, I know it was 🙂

Well, yours truly is feeling a bit under the weather. My oh-so-generous kids and the hubs shared their craptastic cold with me. Lucky me. Normally, I’m the one in the house that gets spared said illnesses, but no such luck this time. Suffice it to say that I feel like my brain has been hollowed out and the empty cavity has been replaced with snot and I sound like I’ve had a 5 pack a day smoking habit since I was five.

Oh yeah, I’m the picture of sexy right now.

But enough with my whining, I’ll live, let us move on to what is really important on this Friday, the introduction!

I’d like to continue on with showing the lovely ladies of Cat O’ Nine Tails some love and today I’d like to introduce you to….

Mauralynn “Maura” Sullivan

This, ladies and gents (yes, I have gents!) is Danielle Panabaker. You may recognize her from both television and movies, most recently in The Crazies and the latest rendition of Friday the 13th as well as a couple of Disney films, Sky High and Read It and Weep.

She is the quintessential Maura, sweet, fresh and innocent.  Maura is someone very special to Aeron, our fair piratess.  I would tell you how, but you will just have to read to find out why 😉

As per usual, these photos, and all of the others can be found on my Facebook, link to the right.  You can also follow me on Twitter and on Goodreads!  You can even just subscribe and have this lovely little blog delivered right to your email inbox!  Woohoo, oh the wonders of technology!!

Stay tuned for next Friday and meet yet another cast member.  Yeah, I’m running out of pretty people to show you, but like I said, I figure out something to do for you on Fridays.  Why?  Because I like you.  Holy Mickey Mouse Club moment Batman! LOL!

Have a great weekend my sprinkly love monkeys!  I’m going to be cheering on my oldest child as he heads to the annual ROTC precision drill competition!

Until next time,

Patty ❤
