Thursday Thirteen: Military Romances

May 10, 2007 at 10:17 am (Books of Interest, Romance Books, Thursday Thirteen)

Yes, it’s Thursday Thirteen, but I’m under the gun so this is a quickie 13+ today. Plus wordpress is acting up and I’m tired of wasting time with the Thursday Thirteen format/graphic thingy!

However, I’d like to start a list of military themed romances.

It’s for my big sister.  She is a huge fan of The Unit and didn’t realize there were military hero themed romances.  “What? You, a huge romance reader didn’t realize that there are tons of military based romances out there?”

Okay, here’s the beginning of the list from Romance Book Cafe:

8 Habit/Facts about Margo

May 9, 2007 at 11:52 am (About Margo)

Jennifer Shirk tagged me!  Guess it is about time I posted again 🙂 

1. (Fact) While writing this, I am simultaneously ordering glow sticks for our family vacation.  Glow sticks entertain our girls for hours in a dark backseat!

2. (Fact) Last night I watched the movie, The Ideal Husband, with Rupert Everet. Great movie!

3. (Habit) I turn my blinker on when I turn my car to pull into a garage.  I live on a farm!  There is NO REASON to do this, but I can’t stop myself.

4. (Fact) I love shopping for shampoo and conditioners.  I try new ones almost every time.  It takes me a awhile in the hair aisle and drives my hubby crazy.

5. (Fact) This post will take me an hour or so to do, because I multi-task way too much.

6. (Fact) Red cars are the best.

7. (Fact) I’d really like to buy some buffalo meat, but I’m going to have to drive to Omaha to buy it.  It’s said…I live on a farm in northeast Nebraska with buffalo herds within an hours drive and I can’t buy their meat at any local grocery stores 😦

8. (Fact) My hubby is standing behind me laughing at my poor spelling!  Spell Check here I come.

I tag: Rebecca James (she’s been tagged and has a nice list up), Rhonda Stapelton (who has a beautiful header), Ansely Vaughan, Dayna Heart, MG Braden (who also has a pretty header). yes, I know there should be two more, but I’m lame 🙂

Here are the rules: (if you choose to participate)

Each player starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves.
People who are tagged need to write their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.

Have a good day!

Half Moon Rising 2 ? How about HMR 1.2?

May 2, 2007 at 11:08 am (About Margo, Margo Lukas Books)

My reviewers and a few of my readers have been asking if there will be any more stories set in the world of Half Moon Rising.  What’s funny (to me) is that they have different ideas about whose story I should continue.  Mario? Roz? Sebastian?

I’m brainstorming story ideas.  (As in my notes are spread over my kitchen table right NOW!) I know, bad….I should have started on the sequel as soon as I was done with the first book, right?  Well, for various reasons, I didn’t.  But on the plus side the feedback I’m getting on Half Moon Rising will make the next story (or stories) better than if I had just plowed ahead last July when I sent the full manuscript off to Samhain.

If anyone has 2 cents they’d like to add about who they’d like to see have their own story–here’s a chance to comment!

On the downside, I can’t guarantee there will be a sequel published.  You see, because of shuffling at Samhain–the editor who bought my book wasn’t my final assigned editor.  So I’m back in the boat of “unpublished” authors in that I’ve got to submit a full manuscript before I get a contract.  And if I do get another book bought, it won’t be released until late 2008 or even 2009.   The life of a writer…

Reviews: The Romance Studio and Fallen Angel Reviews

May 1, 2007 at 10:36 pm (Margo Lukas Books)

I got some good stuff today.  Two new reviews came in and I’m pretty darn pleased.

Anita from The Romance Studio:

The action is thrilling as werewolves come together in a power struggle. Readers can expect some spectacular violence as they fight among themselves. As danger heats up the story becomes even more exciting and readers will find them selves mesmerized by the events as they happen. Half Moon Rising by Margo Lukas is a story that will leave readers anxiously awaiting a sequel and can be recommended to those readers that enjoy paranormal romance.

Click Here for Full Review!

Dana from Fallen Angel Reviews:

This book had it all, suspense, excitement, and passion, oh yeah, the
        passion. Half Moon Rising was a lovely romp through the paranormal,
        suspending belief of the everyday to imagine the possibilities. The gift
        these two characters give one another is the power of love. C.J. and
        Trey definitely fit all the criteria of two becoming one. Margo Lukas
        has given it all to us, a little erotica, and a shapeshifter with a
        little magic thrown in for good measure. I really enjoyed the story and
        hope that the secondary characters, Mario, and Sebastian might have a
        story of their own one day. HINT, HINT.

The both mentioned a sequel.  More about that tomorrow 🙂
