Let’s Talk Blurbs

Lately, I've been thinking about blurbs. You know, the kind on the back of books (or on bookseller sites) and the kind needed for BookBub and ads that don't want it to be so wordy. It's important to draw a reader's attention. I can't say I'm great at them, but heck, I see some pretty [...]

A Little Something

The other day, one of my writer friends was setting up a press release for our book signing at Barnes and Noble (The Summit) in Birmingham, Alabama on February 8 from 1 to 3 p.m.  And she asked a couple questions you might be interested in seeing the answer. As a local author, what about [...]

Pile It on

Pile It on

You know what I like about romance books? Of course, the hot sex, but truthfully, the layers my favorite authors weave into their stories. For romances, there should be two main plots in the book. One, of course is the mystery of romance. You know, the mystery of how they come to understand they should be [...]

So Minor, But Important

I was watching an interview with Mike Fisher, a retired NHL Nashville Predator and hubby of Carrie Underwood. In being teased about NHL roommates on the road, he mentioned they no longer have to share a room (per the CBA). So many hockey romances I've read mention roommates. The junior leagues probably still do and [...]

Interview by Kenya!

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Kenya. She was a member of my writers group, and hopefully will be again when she returns to Alabama.  YAY! She has this wonderful group on Facebook called The KGB:  The Ks Grown & Sexy Book Club. She sent me the following questions [...]

What are they saying?

Last month, a member of my local chapter of the Romance Writers of America gave a presentation on Reviews. She did a wonderful job. She showed everyone how even best-selling romance authors can have two and one star reviews. That reviewers can even hate our favorite stories. You know, the books you catch yourself re-reading [...]

Newly Designed Website

How do you like my newly designed website? I should've been writing but the way my website looked after changing it about a month ago really bugged me. So I worked on it all afternoon until 2:30 a.m. in the morning. I think I finally got it right and love it. What do you think? [...]

New Release March 26!

Atlanta Edge's hottest Russian hockey star made a big mistake. Now he must find a way to apologize big time to the girl he left behind in the States. I've been a puck bunny most of my life. So when Roman Volkov, up and coming hockey star with the Atlanta Edge, takes me home and treats me [...]

The Heroine Hero

The Heroine Hero

No. I didn't leave out anything between heroine and hero. Lately, there has been a debate of rather or not the word heroine is outdated. Someone on Twitter had said that comics...oops...graphic novels (or whichever term you prefer) refer to superheroes no matter the sex of the character, not superheroes and superheroines. Okay. Sounds cool [...]

Love it? Review It.

Love it? Review It.

The last Bookbub I looked at was Tuesday’s. Today I caught up. A few interested me, but not enough to buy. I've been wanting to cut back on my TBR pile. So the book has to interest me big time. Wednesday, nothing. Thursday, thought about one, but decided I’ve read too many like it and [...]

T-Shirts Are Not For All Occasions

First remember, my blog, my opinion. I can't tell you what to do. I can only tell my family. HA! And no, I'm not about to talk about hockey. I just want to first show you I do wear (what I consider) unfeminine clothing on occasion. That includes T-shirts. For years, I had only two [...]

New Covers for The Circle Books

Here we go. Starting June 12, 2018, one book a week will be re-released with a new cover. I'm so excited and hope if you haven't read them, you'll give them a try.  Click on MY BOOKS above to see the back blurb on each.  

A Beautiful Life Being Published

A Beautiful Life Being Published

A few years ago, I posted on another blog about how wonderful it is to be a published author. Some of it was me teasing (aka sarcastic/ being funny) and a commenter thought I was for real and scolded me for not being appreciative of my good fortune. Anyway, I thought I would talk about [...]
