• Sunday Snippet…

    …is actually a book review today. A book about Paris!! I don’t do book reviews here very often, mostly because brat that I am, I try to keep this blog focused on my writing and my life. That said, I do love having guests on the blog and promoting other writers’ work! If one of us wins, we all win and that is particularly true of fiction writers. I loved, loved Elizabeth Thompson’s new book, Lost in Paris, which I nabbed an ARC of over at Net Galley because I just couldn’t wait for release day! Thompson had me at “Paris,” the rest was just a delightful bonus that I…

  • Focused on Writing

    I’m in a weird place with this new work-in-progress. I like the story, I like the characters, but somehow I’m having a problem getting them to move along. I have more notes about this story, this new series, than I did starting out the Four Irish Brothers Winery series, mostly because I’m coming off those stories with this series, so character lists, place descriptions, etc. are already created, I’m just adding to them. But I also have more word notes, more conversation notes, more scene notes than any book I’ve ever written. It’s almost as if I’m writing the book in my notes, but when I get to the computer,…

  • Welcome Author Katherine Garbera

    One of the best things about having my own blog is that I get to invite whomever I want to be my guest here for a day. I’ve gotten to know so many wonderful writers this way and discovered a ton of fabulous books! Today, I’m welcoming fellow Tule Publishing author, Katherine Garbera, whom I’ve never met in person because she lives way across the pond! But I had a blast interviewing her here. Katherine is a USA Today bestselling author, who writes emotionally sexy contemporary romances.  An Amazon, B & N, and iBooks bestseller, she is also a two-time Maggie Award winner and has over 115 books published. So…

  • Who Would Visit?

    I’m seriously considering putting up a new page on this website–a blog featuring my fictional town of River’s Edge, Indiana. A place where readers, writers, and small town aficionados can come and share ideas and pictures and stories relating to small town life. Do you live in a small town? Were you raised in a small town? Do you wish you lived in a small town? Want to share your experiences? I would be able to share more about River’s Edge, the townsfolk, and the history. Who would like to know Mac Mackenzie’s journey? How about what life was like when Donal and Maggie Flaherty immigrated from Ireland? Maybe some…

  • Welcome Author Nicole Flockton

    I’m so pleased to have been able to sit down for a chat with fellow Tule Publishing author, Nicole Flockton. Her new novel, Falling for the Texan released August 4 and I can’t wait to read it!

Apart from writing Nicole is busy spreading glitter all over social media, looking after her very own hero – her wonderfully supportive husband, and two fabulous kids. She also enjoys watching sports and, of course, reading. N: Nicole, Welcome to the blog!…

  • On Promotion…And Some News!

    So…promotion…I’m not great at it. Some might even say I suck at it. I love writing, I love putting a new book out into the world, I love it when people read said book and leave glowing reviews. Heck, I don’t even mind not-so-glowing reviews–at least they read it, right? What I don’t love is promotion. I’m just not good at it–it doesn’t fit me. I’m uncomfortable in the Look-at-Me suit that you have to put on in order to market books. I’m fortunate that my publisher, Tule Publishing, is so great at helping out with promotion, otherwise I’d probably never sell a book. And they motivate me to get…

    Today, I’m so excited to introduce you to award-winning author and fellow Tule girl, Michele Arris. Michele has always had a fondness for romance and happy endings. “I love to write stories where my characters are guaranteed their happily ever after.” When Michele isn’t seated in front of her computer, shaping bad-ass alpha heroes who meet their match in strong-willed heroines, she enjoys reading, watching period classics, actually looks forward to working out, and loves spending time with family and friends–simply enjoying life.
