I’ve got four days before I leave for Celebrate Romance and there is only one thing I need to get done. A whole lot of writing. For the last two weeks I’ve been tied down with Mom duties, a conference, and something the school district dubbed “Mid-Winter Break.” I am still trying to determine who gets (or wants) a break in mid-winter, ’cause it sure as heck wasn’t me.
This frantic obession with the next four days began two weeks ago, when the DH, littlest hero and then I, all fell sick. I didn’t fall too badly, having snarfed down … Read more »
I would just like to thank everyone who entered my last contest and congratulate the last two winners:
- Jackie W. of LaMesa, California

Each of you will be receiving in the mail very shortly an autographed hardcopy of
If you are saying to yourself, “Hey, I want to win something”, you can stop muttering! I’m starting a new contest today and you’ll love the prize. You see I have one advanced reader’s copy left of Confessions of a Little Black Gown. (Remember these laying around on my … Read more »
I meant to let you know before I went away for the weekend. But what a weekend it was. It had nothing to do with writing or romance. I’ll bet you can guess what I was up to, especially if you read my blog often. Yes, I spent the weekend knitting at the Madrona Fiber Arts Retreat. My fingers can’t type this morning to save my life. But I will tell you one funny story. In Cat Bordhi’s class, she was going around the room signing her books, (yes, I waited patiently and excitedly to get my book signed) we … Read more »
One of the most common questions I got asked after Love Letters from a Duke came out was “How did Pippin and Dash end up together?” Everyone wanted to see the affair that was being conducted behind the scenes while Felicity was chasing after her duke.
So when I sat down to write their story, I knew I would have to include all the “scenes” that I couldn’t show you in Love Letters from a Duke and the ones that you have yet not to see in Confessions of a Little Black Gown. (Wow, is that ever convoluted, but … Read more »
It’s. That. Time. Again. Excuse my enthusiasm, but it is time for the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. Forget all the other dog shows that populate the television, this is the Academy Awards for Dogs. This is the big show.
Samantha James is back today to talk about her all time favorite romantic movies. Pop some corn, settle in and let the debate begin, because here is Samantha’s list:
Elizabeth tells me a lot of her readers here are movie buffs. Well, I am, too. Good movies are like good books; you come back to them again and again because they strike a chord every single time. With that in mind, we thought it would be fun if I shared some of my favorite romantic movies. First off, though, let’s get one out of the way. I won’t list Pride … Read more »
As promised, I would like to introduce you to my friend, Samantha James. She was kind enough to let me bug her with questions about her writing and her new book, Bride of a Wicked Scotsman, and then I even roped her into blogging on Thursday as well. That’s what kind of friend she is! So without further ado, here is Samantha James:
EB: What do you think the lure of the plaid is? How come Scotsmen make such great heroes?
SJ: The accent. Hands down, it’s the accent. When I think of Scotsmen, several things pop into … Read more »
