Here’s a teaser — six evocative sentences from my newest release Loving Leonardo.
Nicolas and Ellie share their mutual attraction for Luca.
Truth be told, it was more than lust that I felt.
Our friendship and comfort with Luca had grown through our common interests. But there was much more between us. We both wanted him in what could only be described as a tangible desire for deeper intimacy with a kindred spirit. Finding Luca sensually compelling the way we did, he unknowingly came to play an intermittent role during our intimate explorations of one another. The fantasy of him was shared between our kisses and caresses of the night before.
Bound by limits dictated by society, Art Historian Nicolas Halstead lived a guarded life until a tempest in the form of Elenora Schwaab blew into his world. At first Nicolas can’t decide if the audacious American is simply mad or plotting blackmail for not only does she declare knowledge of his homosexuality, she offers him a marriage proposal.
After Ellie tells him of a previously unknown work of Leonardo da Vinci, a book of erotic love poems and sketches dedicated to the artist’s long-time lover Salai, Nicolas joins her in a race to save the book from destruction. Along the way they encounter Historian Luca Franco and discover a comfortable compatibility that comes to redefine their long-held notions of love. The trio embarks on an adventure of sensual discovery, intrigue, and danger. Little do they know Leonardo da Vinci’s book is far more than meets the eye.
My book is far more than meets the eye too!

If you like my six and have time, come back and read the earlier blog posts. I have six’s from all my books in the back pages.
I finally got that Loving Leonardo youtube book trailer slowed down to a readable pace. Oh my god what an ordeal.
The program I used for the video is a most infuriating program. Why? Microsoft Movie Maker has some damnable glitch in the code and everyone who uses it knows it. The message boards are FILLED with people talking about this and NOT ONE answer. I got an error message or a complete crash over and over and over again. I downloaded, used, growled, fumed, deleted, downloaded, used growled, deleted, searched for a software fix, downloaded, used growled, fumed, cursed, deleted etc etc etc. All told I did this about 10 times. 10 times!! In the end I loaded what I thought was ok, but no, I had to do it again. And again. Each got on youtube with freezes, glitches, distortion etc.
I even abandoned Mozilla Firefox as my browser and opted for the Google Chrome browser because I was out of options. I got it up and running after three times. This end product has a few pixel issues but for now at least it’s slow enough to read. When I have more time, I’ll find another movie program or just remake it in Powerpoint. What do you think?
