Christmas party in the snow...

Yep, it is that time of year again when my company takes us, the employees, to the mountains for our annual Christmas party.

First we settle into our rooms at the hotel. Later we are picked up (no driving since we are drinking). We are treated to a private dinner with an open bar (yeah, with all the drinking going on, it turns out to be a dinner with a show...LOL).

After dinner, the owner hands out our Christmas bonus checks (YAY:).

Next morning, we are taken to the owner's house (he lives in said mountains) and he and his wife make us a fabulous breakfast.

I look forward to this every year and with that said, I am off to start my merriment!

Happy hot holidays,

My new toy...

I have been looking for over a year for a new car. I had to have a Chysler Crossfire and I wouldn't settle for less. Finally, a few weeks ago, I found my perfect car and I went for it!

So, here is my angel. I love this car! As my saying goes..."I like my men well hung and my cars low slung." I got my low slung car, and the other is, well, I will leave up to your imagination...LOL.

Happy holiday everyone,

Skylar Sinclair.

New release - A Sexual Spark from Total-e-bound!

A Sexual Spark has been re-released with Total-e-bound. This book is the start of the Brotherhood of Spark series coming in late 2008 with TEB.

Have you ever had a complete stranger make your body ache and your skin feel like it is on fire when he enters the room? Your breath takes on a pant and you imagine him dominating you and taking control of your body. Everything narrows down to just him and you, alone in tangled sheets, using you until you cannot live without his touch--his body inside yours. If yes is your answer, then come take a wild ride with me…

My name is Loren Westley, and that exact thing will happen to me one night while I am working at my job as a cocktail waitress at Freaks, a paranormal hangout. The moment he walks through the door, starts me on a downward spiral into a sexual odyssey that will forever mark my soul, and I look forward to every deliciously heated minute with him.

I had the perfect image in my head and you can see the finished product. Along with that, D. N. Simmons gave me a great quote for the front cover. Thank you so much D. N.!

Not only will this book be available in print, but in ebook form as well.

Happy hot reading,

I finally did it!

I finally went today and got my belly button pierced at the ripe old age of 45! I cannot believe I waited so long. It took about eight minutes total and I walked out with a sparkling belly button.

You are probably asking: Did it hurt? In the time it takes to blink and then it is over. I think getting my blood drawn hurts more than this did.

If you have ever thought about getting it done…DO! I love mine!

Happy hot reading,

D.N. Simmons' lastest release of her Knights of the Darkness Chronicles series

I was so very honored when paranormal print author, D. N. Simmons, asked me for a quote for Hostile Territory, the forth book in the Knights of the Darkness Chronicles series.

I started reading this series when it first came out. D. N. was one of the first print authors to delve into a gay relationship between two extremely sexy male vampires, along with an interracial romance with the lead female.

If you love vampires and shifters set in a highly erotic and gritty storyline, you have to read this series.

Book 1 – Desires Unleashed: Knights of the Darkness
Book 2 – The Guilty Innocent: Knights of the Darkness
Book 3 – The Royal Flush: Knights of the Darkness
Book 4 – Hostile Territory: Knights of the Darkness

Dentist and oral surgeon

I finally did it. I wanted all my front teeth re-done before EPICon, nevertheless, getting the dentist and oral surgeon coordinated didn’t happen. Today I spent the day bouncing like a ball between the dentist and oral surgeon. By the time the day ended, I had all new front teeth and the most brilliant white smile I could’ve ever wanted!

I am tired but happy.

Happy hot reading and smiling Skylar Sinclair!

Dark Eden Press is closing its doors April 1st, 2008

For the third time in my writing career, a publisher I am with is closing their doors. With Dark Eden Press (DEP), it is because the owner has serious health issue and that I can understand. I wish Debra, the owner, all the best and hope she gets well soon.

I will be looking for new homes for, A Sexual Spark (my one and only first person tale, which Emily Veinglory compared to Laura K. Hamilton in her better days) and An Eternal Bite, a paranormal erotic romance.

Do I get discouraged? Yes for a moment, then I gather myself together and move on. I did this with Mardi Gras Publishing and, in the end, I won the coveted Quasar cover art award with Epic and Freya’s Bower took the series on the first three chapters. I believe things happen for a reason though we might not comprehend them at the time. So here’s to a new future!

Happy hot reading,

EPICon and what a fun time I had!

Here I am during registration looking through all the wonderful promotional items and EPICon binder in the hotel lobby. Next to me is my roommate Janet Quinn.

This is me on Saturday night of the EPICon banquet receiving the Quasar Award for best overall cover art with Extraordinary Love, which by the way will be re-releasing with Freya's Bower in 2008 along with its sequel,
Sacred Love!

Here I am Friday morning receiving the Ariana Award for paranormal, fantasy, sci-fi and futuristic erotic cover art for Extraordinary Love.

I am sitting Thursday night with a table full of Amber Quill authors.

Here I am at the ARe champagne celebration Saturday night before the EPICon award's banquet. I am standing with Janet Quinn and Lyndi Lamont.

I have a few more pictures I will be posting, as soon as I learn how to get them off my new camera...LOL.

This being my very first convention, I have to say EPICon was a total blast! The authors I met were friendly and so much fun. Portland, Oregon was a wonderful city and easy to get around in.

I will be going to EPICon 2009 in Las Vegas next year and hope to meet more great authors and readers there!
Happy hot reading,

New contracts for Skylar Sinclair

2008 has started off with a bang. I have two new publishers, Total-e-bound and Freya's Bower. Total-e-bound contracted my newest book written for 2008, entitled Fantasies Unlashed (contemporary erotic romance). It is a story of a woman craving to experience something new. A sexually adventure she’s never done, but will finally find it within herself to try. This story will be more than just sex (though it will come with a highly sexual rating for TEB), I wanted emotional depth to play an important role, also. Bella will be a woman most of us can identify with. She isn’t perfect, physically, nevertheless she’s all women. A sexy, voluptuous character that will steal your heart, along with a leading man we all desire: strong, passionate, yet sensitive.

We women know that behind every great man, is an even greater woman!

Here is the blurb:Ever fantasized about partaking in a night of uninhibited sex with a stranger? Letting him do things to your body that you have only dreamed of?

Bella Simmons is looking to fulfill that fantasy she has long for, but up until now, never has. She will venture out one night, with the clear intend of finding a sexy stranger and having the wildest carnal night of her life!

Freya’s Bower, a highly reputable publisher, will be publishing my revised version of Extraordinary Love and its never published sequel, Sacred Love in 2008. Both are paranormal erotic romances.

Extraordinary Love’s cover, which I designed, won an ARIANA (Epic) award for Best Cover in paranormal, fantasy, sci-fi and futuristic erotic romance. And, Freya’s Bower has graciously allowed me to use it when it’s re-released.

I will be attending the EPICon convention to receive this award in Portland Oregon, March 6-9, 2008. If you are available to attend, I would love to meet you!

I will be giving away a really cool promo item at this event. So don’t miss it!

To clarify things – does Skylar do cover art?

I have over 7 years (more like 8) in experience using Photoshop and Paint Shop Pro. Creating artwork comes naturally to me. I have been doing it as long as I have been riding horses (that has been since I was a little girl by the way) though back then, I only had Crayons to draw with.

In the next couple of months, I will be opening a separate site for my cover designs called Romance Covers

I find the challenge of capturing the author’s dream cover exhilarating. Seeing their emails expressing their excitement over the cover I created cannot be put into mere words.

My specialty you might wonder? I can hand paint hair, eye color and backgrounds into readymade photos. This has taken me years to develop, and all those long hours were worth it. If you think it is easy, open up Photoshop CS3. If you have never done it and have almost hundreds of dollars to spare, do. Then be prepared to say HOLY SH*T when you do open up said program. I did when I first opened up PSP 3 or maybe it was 4 back then. The program boggled my mind. I reopened Photoshop a good month later and never looked back. If you love it do it! Whatever that may be.

In this mockup cover I did for Bareback Angels, the two men I have added hair and eye color too. The backgrounds (yes there is more than one background in this cover), I have hand drawn. The lettering (font) is created using the style key in Photoshop. You can buy styles or create your own (think macro and save a string of commands into a one-touch key stroke).

So now you know more about me.

Skylar, also a cover artist.
