Oh, good heavens, how do I pick?! Which three books, of all the books I’ve read this year, would I recommend you give (or get for yourself)? Well, after due consideration, I suggest:
For the Romance Reader
You just can’t miss with Laura Lee Guhrke! Her Lady True Love series just keeps getting better and better and The Trouble With True Love is no exception. While it came out earlier this year, if the romance reader on your list missed it, they’ll be glad you didn’t.

I have this not so secret love affair with Fantasy novels. Of course this is no surprise if you know that the first book I ever set out to write was a medieval. I love a good quest. A battle for the soul of a land. Right and wrong. And so with the passing of Ursula K. Le Guin this week, I thought I’d share some of the great fantasy books I’ve read in the past year and hope you will share your favorites in the comments below!
The winners from the July/August newsletters are:

Or rather, “How SIX IMPOSSIBLE THINGS got its cover because a certain someone (not pointing fingers here) decided she no longer wanted to be a romance cover model and made a mess of everything.”
Sorry for the delay in posting the newsletter contest winner of the Kindle fire. I had surgery last week and lots of things are slipping through the cracks right now, mostly anything I try to hold with my left hand–which is in a full cast. I had to use Dragon speak to draft to this post. Without further ado the winner of the Kindle fire is:

I’m struck by this word of late: Intentional. The definition is quite clear: done on purpose.
So I find myself asking this question over and over. What is my intention here? What is my purpose? Will my actions at this moment lead me closer to my intentions?
I suppose as a writer, I’ve done this forever, because this is at the very heart of storytelling. What is the intention of this tale? What do I want the reader to learn with this story? What journey of discovery do I want take them along? What am I intentionally doing with my … Read more »
