Five More Things About Stefanie Sloane

So yes, Stephanie has dropped by here before, but some people bear repeating. ‘Sides, she’s awful nice. Plus, her 2011 book, Devil in Disguise has garnered a double nominations in the RWA RITA awards for Best First Book and Best Regency Historical Romance. I have to smile at this, because I got that double nod myself with my first book. It’s like we are twins who were separated at birth. LOL.

Plus, she sent me a picture of Thor to insert in the blog. Just saying . . .

1. Did you have a nickname growing up?
Mad Dog Stefano. … Read more »

Autographed Books

Just a quick note to let those of you who live in far flung (and probably some not-so-far-flung) that I never seem to visit, the bookstore, Turn the Page, where I will be signing this Friday is also having a virtual signing–which means, if you order one of my books from them, I’ll sign it and they will then send it on to you. A wonderful idea for a gift for Mother’s Day perhaps, or just getting a copy for yourself.

And there are plenty of authors to chose from, including Nora Roberts/JD Robb, Robyn Carr, Cathy Maxwell, Amanda Brice, … Read more »

Five Things About Mary Jo Putney

I read Mary Jo Putney long before I met her. I had one of those fan-girl moments when I finally did get to meet her. After all, here was the author of The Rake! And it was with great joy that I discovered that besides being a fabulous writer, she was also a gracious and lovely lady. So it is with great joy that I share with you Five Things About Mary Jo Putney.

1. Where is the most beautiful/romantic place you’ve ever been? It’s hard to beat the Virgin Islands–turquoise waters and silver sand and jagged volcanic islands … Read more »

Friends

As you know, I like to add my friends to the blog whenever possible. Because, well, quite frankly, I adore the friends I have, even the ones who are long distance acquaintances that I barely know. I meet so many people from far flung corners, but some people you meet and you just know they would be your new BFF if only they didn’t live so darn far away.

Jane Porter and her lovely smile!

And the romance genre is filled with these kind and generous women. I’ve been stewing this morning about all the things I need to get … Read more »

Spring Break Madness

With it being Spring Break in lots of places–and in the coming weeks, I decided a little Spring Madness was in order. So Brazen Angel is now up on Nook and Kindle for the incredible price of .99! Now this isn’t going to last forever. Probably until I come to my senses, so if you’ve wanted to try out the Brazen series, here is your chance.

Brazen Angel

And because, quite frankly, it is sunny here in Seattle, I am going to leap outside and frolic in the sunshine a bit, I’m keeping this short instead of droning on like … Read more »

Five Things about Miranda Neville

I envy Miranda Neville. She grew up in England and lives in Vermont. I always think of both places as deeply romantic and very cool to be from. And it turns out, she’s a nice person as well and great writer. May I introduce you to, Miranda Neville:

1. Did you have a nickname growing up? Yes, but there’s no way I’m going to tell anyone what it is.

2. If you could choose any 3 people in history to meet, who would they be?

  • Shakespeare, because I think he must have been a very entertaining and amusing man as

A Short Story about A Short Story

Several years ago I was asked to be part of a Regency anthology — could I write a story that was under 10,000 words? Sure, I said, without thinking much about it. 10,000 words, eh? That would be simple.

Thus said the woman who always writes long.

Writing a full love story, in 10,000 words or less, is not easy. In fact, it is a true challenge to an author used to having the roomy wide open spaces of 90,000+ words to introduce characters, establish conflict, introduce a plot that will entice readers to follow the hero and heroine along … Read more »
