lips of velvet, virginia nelsonFirst off, I want to thank Lisa for having me on her blog to promote my new release.

Today I want to talk about communication.

Good communication is underrated.  Sometimes it feels like we are screaming something from the mountaintops and yet no one hears a word we are saying.

Other times…we wish we could hit delete and undo whatever it was we just said.

At the start of Lips of Velvet, my new release from Rebel Ink Press, Sandra and Lucy have great communication.  Even though Sandra feels socially awkward, they have this spark and just hit it off.

Then Sandra does what we all have done at some point.  She opens her mouth and says words that she can’t take back.
What is the worst thing that you have ever said and couldn’t take back?

Go ahead and leave your answer in the comments section below and I will let my pal Lisa pick one of you to win a $5 Amazon giftcard.  With it, you could find out what it was that Sandra said… 😉  The contest closes when my book is a week old so…March 10th, 2012.


About the book:

When bookworm Sandra is dragged out for a night on the town, she meets Lucy and sparks fly, but can they survive long term?

Bookworm Sandra is dragged out for a night on the town by her sister.  When she meets the sexy and exotic Lucy, she is instantly attracted to her.  But will their spontaneous combustion burn out as quickly as it ignites or will it lead to a long term flame?

Lucy can’t help but be drawn in by Sandra’s intelligent and fun nature.  But when Sandra suggests that she was just using Lucy for sex, Lucy is a strong enough woman to hide her broken heart and walk away.  A chance meeting brings them back together.  Will Lucy seek revenge for a moment of stupidity?

Virginia Nelson spends her days chasing three very active kids around.  When she is not doing this, or plotting taking over the world, she likes to write, play in the mud, drive far too fast and scream at inanimate objects.  She can often be found listening to music that is far too loud and typing her next fantastic tale of blood, sex and random acts of ineptitude.  Romance, in Ms. Nelson’s opinion, is not about riding off into the sunset on the back of a horse with the knight in shining armor— it is about riding the dragon.  If the knight can keep up… well, that is love.
