  1. I enjoy holiday romances and second-chance-at-love stories, so I had a great time writing Heating Up the Holidays. For those who like their romances hot and humorous, this novella is an R-rated comic contemporary romance.

    I look forward to hearing what you think about my log line! -- Marcia ;-)

  2. I like the line. The book sounds like fun reading. A hairless dog sounds funny.

    1. Hi, Ingeborg/Kit3247! I have a Chinese crested hairless dog in all of my books and novellas. Just like Alfred Hitchcock used to show up as a cameo in all of his movies, a crestie will show up in my books. That's why I have a crestie as my author logo.

      I think these tiny "crestie" dogs are the perfect, humorous pets for my big Alpha male heroes. ;-)

      Thanks for your comment! -- Marcia ;-)

  3. This sounds like a great story! I love dogs so I like that a dog is important in the story.

    1. Hi! I'm definitely a dog person (although there are some cats in my books). I think having a pet in a book humanizes the hero and/or heroine. It shows an important, empathetic side of a character.

      Thanks for stopping by to comment! -- Marcia ;-)

    1. Hi, Dusti Jayne! I really love a tiny dog with a BIG personality. ;-) I don't give my fictional animal characters their own POV, but I think they are all very intelligent and special fictional animals. ;-)

      Thanks for your comment! -- Marcia ;-)

  5. Sounds like a fun story! I love Christmas stories with happily ever afters. Add the extra character in the dog and it sounds like a winner to me.

    1. Thanks, Carol Ann! I'm a sucker for Christmas stories and read them all year round. ;-) I also notice any book with a dog or cat on the cover. No wonder my To Be Read pile is so HUGE.

      Thanks for stopping by! -- Marcia ;-)

    1. Hi, Karin! Curling up with a book (even if it's an e-book on my Nook) is one of my favorite things to do -- especially on a cold, drizzily day.

      Thanks for your kind comment! I'm blushing! ;-)

  7. The hairless dog makes it different from other stories and also associates the book with you. Good job.
    And GREAT cover. I would have bought it based on that alone as I'm also a sucker for Christmas romances any time of year.
    Good luck with this one.

  8. Thanks, Megan, for your kind words and for stopping by! And thanks for your "good luck" on the book -- from your typing fingers to readers' ears!

    ;-) I was very happy with the cover that Streetlight Graphics made for me.

    Happy Halloween! -- Marcia ;-)
