• Sunday Snippet: The I’m Really Tired Edition

    I am… it’s been a very trying week. Some of the reasons are personal and I won’t go into them here, but ending the week with the SCOTUS overthrowing Roe v. Wade was pretty much the capper on a completely shit week. That said, I’m not going to get all preachy here, I’m just too tired… Instead, how about a real snippet from the next book that is releasing in October–The Fireman’s Christmas Wish. It’s Becker Lange’s book and honestly, Beck just melts my heart. I wasn’t sure how putting this grumpy divorced firefighter with chipper, sweet nursery school teacher, Harley Cole, was going to work, but wow, these two…

  • Sunday Snippet: The Lake Life Is the Best Life Edition

    I know. I know. I’ve done this topic before, but it’s my blog, so… you get another one today because it’s June and we’re here and so are Son and Grandboy and it’s been a good Father’s Day weekend so far. We got the cottage washed, which needed doing since May, but all the rain made it impossible, but it’s shiny clean now and I’m going to work on sprucing up the shutters today. Also, got plans to weed–we’re going to get new river rock for around the whole cottage, but we aren’t there yet. But, you know. it’s the lake, so we don’t feel the urgency, which is what…

  • Author Spotlight: A Chat with Author Elsa Winckler

    Roseann Brooks, you’re Elsa’s winner! She’ll be in touch to send you your e-copy of Kissing Charlie! Enjoy!! Last week, fellow Tule author, Elsa Winckler invited me to her blog for a glass of wine and a chat, and I had so much fun, I thought I’d return the favor today. Elsa has been reading love stories for as long as she can remember and when she “met” the classic authors like Jane Austen, Elizabeth Gaskell, Henry James The Brontë sisters, etc. during her Honors studies, she was hooked for life. She married her college boyfriend and they are fortunate to live in the picturesque little seaside village of Betty’s…

  • Sunday Snippet: The It’s Been Quite a Ride Edition

    Wow… release week is nearly done–I have a few more things happening, but mostly, I can breathe again. Well, sorta. Work has piled up while I’ve in promotion and writing is a little behind, but I can reset my focus now, I think. I hope. A word of thanks to all the great readers, reviewers, bloggers, friends, family, publisher… everyone who helped get the word out about Falling for the Doctor. There are still some things in the offing–reviewers who need to post, ARC readers who need to review, a couple of podcast, which I just adore doing, and Carmen Cook’s Reading from the Revenge Garden is coming up today…

  • Author Spotlight: C’est Moi and I’ve Got a Giveaway!!

    We have a winner! William Harris was randomly chosen as the winner of the prize package–William, I will be in touch! Thanks to everyone for stopping by!

So here we go! A quick little bio in case you don’t already know–I am a USA Today bestselling author of sweet romantic fiction for Tule Publishing. My day job is working as a freelance copyeditor and proofreader, however, writing is my first and…

  • Sunday Snippet: The Snoozy and Anticipation Edition

    I’m at the lake this weekend, sleeping. Seriously…it’s as if someone has drugged my beverages. All I want to do is sleep. We’re both in that mode. I think it could be both of actually relaxing for the first time in months, but we’re going to bed early-ish, waking up late-ish, and taking little catnaps throughout the day. We should be getting some things done here at the cottage–window washing, floors need to be scrubbed, and we need to trim around the edges of the yard. The boat is finally in the water, and I did vacuum it really well yesterday before we launched, but the seats need to be…

  • Author Spotlight: Liz Flaherty Has a New Release!

    I’m always so glad to feature my bestie, Liz Flaherty, here in the spotlight and never happier when she has a new book out. We process story every single day so I feel the birth pains of her books and she feels mine. Reinventing Riley grew so naturally out of Syd and Clay’s story, A Year of Firsts, and I loved seeing her back in her little town of Fallen Soldier, Pennsylvania. Writing a series is hard and more than once, Liz and I have giggled over one or the other of us has forgotten a detail about our little towns. We have a bunch of fun being each other’s…
