Guest Post: Kitty Wilson, author of The Cornish Village School, on breaking your rules

Hi everyone! We have a special guest post for you from Kitty Wilson, author of The Cornish Village School! Before we dive in to Kitty’s great post on why you should break your own rules, let’s quickly explain why you should pick up this book pronto, especially at only £1.99! This was such a cute and fluffy read, but then it is summer time, meaning the time for beach reads is upon us! Both Rosy and Matt were fun characters, so nice with just enough saltiness to give them flavour. And they were so perfect together, with light, easy banter mixed with adorable awkwardness here and there. As for the setting, Kitty gave Cornwall an almost magical air, painting a picture of calm beauty. I can understand why people would flock to the area during the holidays if the way Kitty portrayed the area is accurate. I read the whole thing with a smile on […]

Guest Post: Leslie North, author of Tempting the Rancher, on the hardest thing about writing

Hi everyone! We have a special guest post for you from Leslie North, author of Tempting the Rancher! We asked Leslie what’s the hardest thing about writing. She shared the biggest hurdle for her, and what she does to combat it. You can also find out more about her book and enter a giveaway at the end! The hardest part of writing Sometimes the hard part is just sitting down! There are so many distractions these days, but usually if I have the discipline to just turn off the outside world, sit down at my writing desk and start typing, the words just flow out of me! I have found having a routine is an important part of my writing strategy. So I will write Monday to Friday in the mornings, all morning. I like to write then as I always feel more creative and haven’t been distracted yet by the world outside. I […]

Guest Post: Nicole Sobon, author of Collide, on her journey to publication

Hi everyone! We have a special guest post for you from Nicole Sobon, author of Collide, the first in a novella series! Today, Nicole will be talking about the road to release. You can also find out more about her book and enter a giveaway at the end! Publishing Collide I’d always enjoyed writing and spent most of my teenage years writing songs and poems that I typically only shared with close friends. However, around 2010, I decided to try my hand at writing a book and signed up for NaNoWriMo. To my surprise, I completed the challenge and ended up with a very uneven, and far from finished edition of Capture, the first book in my Lunica City Duet. While I knew I still had plenty of room to grow and was in no way ready to approach publishers, I continued to write each and every day, finishing my second novel – Program 13 […]

Five Ways to Woo a Wolf With it being Valentine’s week in the U.S. and other parts of the world, here is some cuddly advice on how to woo a wolf. Note: Applies to humans as well! 1: Spend Extra Time with Her She-wolves like attention. It’s that simple!

Guest Post & Excerpt: Relationship advice from Alethea Spiridon, author of Kissing Strangers

Hi everyone! We have a special guest post for you from Alethea Spiridon, author of Kissing Strangers! Alethea has been touring blogs these past two weeks sharing her wisdom, and she’s talking today about red flags. We’ve also got an excerpt from her new release and a giveaway at the end! Little big red flags on dating profiles I’m always wary of the profiles that seem to cater to what a man thinks a woman wants to hear. You know, all the sweet things, like he’s looking for love, his best friend, his soul mate, wants to walk hand in hand with the love of his life…most men do not talk like this or think like this. Maybe once he’s head over heels in love. Maybe. Most catfishing profiles start and end like this because they want to draw in all the lonely women who are desperate for love and a man to […]

Guest Post: Shani Petroff, author My New Crush Gave to Me, on why she writes romance

Hi everyone! We have a special guest post for you from Shani Petroff, author of My New Crush Gave to Me! Today, Shani will be talking about writing romance. You can also find out more about her book and enter a giveaway at the end! Why I write romance I love reading and writing all sorts of books, but I have a special place in my heart for romantic comedies. For me, they are the perfect escape – a chance to momentarily put aside any stress or problems going on in the “real” world. For several hours you can lose yourself in the exploits of the leading character, who undoubtedly gets herself into amusing and cringe-tastic situations. While she experiences highs and lows and moments of failure and disappointment—at the end, there’s always a happily ever after. It’s the type of book that leaves a smile on my face. With a good portion […]

Guest Post & Excerpt: Mara Gan, author of Joined, on her writing routine

Hi everyone! We have a special guest post for you from Mara Gan, author of Joined! Today, Mara will be talking about her writing routine. You can also find out more about her book and enter a giveaway at the end! Mara Gan’s writing routine I have a full-time job apart from writing, so I tend to daydream a lot of my stories for a while before I get around to writing them down. But when I write, either for my job or for my life as an author, I make myself a cup of green tea, read a little bit of news on my laptop, and turn on Netflix. I often stray toward Friends or Star Trek: The Next Generation, because I know all the episodes so well that it doesn’t distract me into paying rapt attention, but I like having a little bit of conversation noise in the background. For whatever […]

Playlist & Excerpt: Meeting His Match by Shannyn Schroeder

It’s two for the price of one today! I’ve got a playlist AND an excerpt from Meeting His Match by Shannyn Schroeder! About the book Playlist For every book I write, I create a playlist before I sit down to compose a single word. I listen to the music all the time—in the house, in the car—because it’s my way of keeping the story moving in my head. I use it to connect with my characters – at least who I think they’ll be once I start writing. Here’s the playlist for Meeting His Match. Put Your Hands on Me – Joss Stone After You – Meg Myers Hero – Enrique Iglesias I Want to Be Loved – Etta James Woman – John Lennon I’ll Trust You – Josh Abbott Band Hands Down – Dashboard Confessional Collide – Howie Day The Story – Brandi Carlile The Shoop Shoop Song – Cher […]

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 […]
