Guest Post: Melissa Chambers, author of Falling for Forever, on discovering romance novels

Hi everyone! We have a special guest post for you from Melissa Chambers, author of FALLING FOR FOREVER! Today, Melissa will be talking about discovering and writing romance. You can also find out more about their book and enter a giveaway at the end! Discovering Romance So often, when I hear romance authors talk about their path to writing, they say they would sneak their mother’s Harlequin novels as preteens and teenagers, or they would ditch class in college to read a new romance novel from their favorite author. They talk about how they have read romance novels since the dawning of their time…and I sink down lower in my chair. Here’s a secret I don’t tell very often. I read my first romance novel in 2011. It’s true. I would read chick lit like Bridget Jones’s Diary and Sex and the City, but it never would have dawned on me to go […]

Guest Post: Sylvie Parizeau, author of Incandescently, on skipping to the end of books

Hi everyone! We have a special guest post for you from Sylvie Parizeau, author of Incandescently! Today, Sylvie will be talking about her love for epilogues. You can also find out more about her book and enter a giveaway at the end! Give Sylvie the happy! Bonjour! As you know by now (spoiler alert if you haven’t read my full bio), I am epilogue obsessive compulsive. And as Éolie once said to Liam in one of their deleted scenes: “Liam, it’s a compulsion. I swear; I start to read fully intending not to skip ahead, but I can’t help it. I need to know how it ends before I can enjoy how the characters get there. I cannot bear anything less than a happy ending. Everyone deserves a happily ever after.” Guilty as charged. I am one of those who read the end… right after Chapter One. So by now, you’re either, gasping, cringing, totally […]

Guest Post: Katey Hawthorne, author of Alchemiya, talks about feminism

Hi everyone! We have a special guest post for you from Katey Hawthorne, author of Alchemiya! Today, Katey will be talking about how her characters would get involved in feminism in our world. You can also find out more about her book and enter a giveaway at the end! Would your characters, who fight against patriarchy in your book, get involved in feminism in our world, and in what way? For both Eugenia Ratna and Olivia Plumtree, the answer to part one of that question is a resounding “yes”. In their world, it’s alchemical knowledge rather than an old name or land ownership that designates nobility, but, well, nobility counts for a lot less these days anyhow. Still, they’d both want to use their family’s resources and name to uplift women and fight for equality every day. Eugenia’s main frustration with her world and society comes from inequality: she’s a far better alchemist than her older […]
