Wanton Wishes

What would you wish for?

My little boys often ask me that when we toss coins into the magical wishing well. My usual response is World Peace...knowing it will never happen. I'm almost afraid to wish for something that is attainable as I don't like flirting with disappointment. I'm one of those 'expect the worst' type people. I enjoy being happy when the worst case scenerio doesn't happen.

I've been thinking lately though about goals and wishes. They are related. Someone sent me a quote one day: Goals are wishes with a plan. As a writer, I know what my "dream" is (NY Times Bestseller list, books signings with over 1000 fans attending, you get the picture). How much of that is within my control? Probably not much. All I can really do is write the best book I can write and hope for the best. So, this year, I'm devoting quite a lot of my reading to books to improve my craft (my favorite so far has been Don't Murder Your Mystery, by Chris Roerden). Up next is Josh Lanyon's Writer M/M Fiction for Kinks and Cash. I can hardly wait to crack the cover on that one.

Hopefully, my recent release from Total E-bound, Wanton Wishes, is just what you are wishing for.

Centuries of granting wishes to underprivileged kids comes to a screeching halt after faerie godmother Zuzanna annoys the crown prince of the faeries one last time. His punishment - to exile her and strip her of her powers. However, Zuzanna has other plans. Instead of giving up her wand, she flees the kingdom to a cold spot where no one would think of looking for her – Chicago, Illinois.

There she meets single father Phillip Denton. He needs a nanny and fast. His son, Jamie, isn't a bad kid; the tyke’s just got a mischievous streak as wide as Lake Michigan. When Phillip hires Zuzanna, he figures he’s getting lucky in more ways than one. She’s cute, sexy and even likes snakes. Oh, and not to mention, she’s great in bed, as well.

Despite her best intentions to live life as a mortal, Zuzanna didn't count on traffic congestion, housework, or most of all, her attraction to Phillip, to deter her from the path of abstinence. From magic, that is. She also didn’t plan on getting caught...or falling in love.

I think when I toss that coin into the fountain from now on, I'm going to wish for "And they lived happily ever after." The perfect ending.

What about you?
