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 Lately, there has been a debate of rather or not the word heroine is outdated.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 […]

RT BookReviews

RT BookReviews closed it operations on May 16, 2018. It was a sad moment for many including myself. I read the magazine from the time it was actually a newspaper (1980s). At least, my dream of having a review of my book(s) done by the magazine came true. Plus my name was mentioned a few […]

Excerpt from NAKED HEAT

I thought you might be interested in a little excerpt from NAKED HEAT. A scene when the heroine remembers meeting Wolf Savalas for the first time. ~~ Calling him adorable was like calling a grizzly cuddly. He’d noticed her standing a couple feet away with her hand over her mouth, trying to hide her laughter. […]

Let’s Party Like It’s July 11!

I couldn’t resist using that title. Anyway, on July 11, I will be with a group of writers on Facebook giving away all kinds of goodies. My giveaway/post slot is 9 to 9:30 p.m. central time USA. (10-10:30 eastern; 8-8:30 mountain; 7-7:30 p.m. west coast). I will be giving away Brothers of Mayhem cups (US […]

Yep, Me Again

You probably have noticed I’ve been posting about ads lately. That’s part of my New Year’s resolution. I had decided to do more ads and less contests. No. An alien hasn’t taken over my body. After 21 years (first contest in 1994, skipped 5 years before 2nd one), this contest diva decided it was time […]

Keeping On Track

A fast pace, well-written book encourages me to write. I get excited and want my books to be just as fun to read. A book that doesn’t satisfy frightens me; I’m afraid I’ll pick up their bad habits. So, I quit reading and pass it on to the used book store or delete it off […]

Baffled?

Love that word along with bamboozled, hoodwinked, charlatan, flummox and so many more. All words you don’t hear people say anymore. You’re more apt to read it in a historical novel. I wonder what words we say now that will be quaint fifty to hundred years from now? Anyway, that’s not what this post is […]
