Sara Walter Ellwood – A Moving Target

My special guest author today is Sara Walter Ellwood and I’m excited to have her here. She is promoting Book 3 in her Colton Gamblers Series: GAMBLING ON A DREAM. I envy historical authors for one reason. They can set their stories in a time period and don’t ever have to worry about the events / styles / technology in their stories from ever becoming “dated.” I have a friend who is republishing some of her older contemporary romances, but before she does, she’s updating technology like switching flip phones for smart phones.

Crying – Don’t panic!

I write romantic stories which involve emotions, including women occasionally crying. Most men, including my heroes, look at a woman crying and get panicky. Did they do something wrong?

I’m happy to have P. J. MacLayne here today on my blog. She is here talking about HER LADYSHIP’S RING, which is the second book in her Oak Grove Mysteries.

I like fast cars, although I know just the basics of maintaining them—my father[…]

Lisabet Sarai Talks About Plausible Enchantment

Lisabet Sarai is spotlighted today on my blog with her new book THE EYES OF BAST, from Totally Bound. She is sharing her thoughts on soul mates. The notion of finding one’s soul mate—the one individual in the universe whom you’re destined to love—is a favorite romance trope. I can understand the appeal of this concept. It’s both reassuring and thrilling to imagine a lover perfectly attuned to your needs, your ideal complement and companion, a person who makes you whole and vice versa. I find it hard to write stories about soul mates, though. I’m always aware that reality[…]
