Fall Into Romance – Addison Fox

My thanks to Bobbi for the invitation to come visit again! And she made it so easy since the topic is “Fall Into Romance.” Fall is my favorite season and romance is my favorite thing to write, read and talk about so…once I got going I realized just how easy it was to put them together.

Sophie Eastlake – Q&A, etc…

My reading tastes have changed since I started narrating, for sure. I was an English major in college, so my tastes ran to the old and out-of-print. Ha! I hadn’t read a romance novel, for instance, since I was 16 and discovered Judith McNaught (Oh, Judith McNaught… how do I love thee? Let me count the ways).

Fall Into Romance – Connie Brockway

Halloween! Oh, the tricks I have known! And the tricks I have orchestrated! My favorite one, bar none, is from 1996 —long before anyone in our town decorated for Halloween.

Songbird’s Seduction – An Audiobook Review

I love Brockway’s writing. I think she is one of the best out there, actually, and there are many reasons for this. For one thing, she writes really unique characters, and she sets couples up in perfect disharmony, by which I mean to say, she truly forces her characters to face up to their authentic selves, to be true to who they really are.

Carolina Blues, A Dare Island Novel

If you haven’t discovered the Dare Island series by Virginia Kantra, I highly recommend you take a little trip there. Carolina Blues, the fourth in the series, released last week and I was lucky enough to receive an audio copy of the book to review.

Fall Into Romance – Sonali Dev

I didn’t grow up with Halloween. But I think of it as my mommy festival- given that it’s my children’s favorite holiday thanks to the two pillowcases filled with candy that I get stuck with having to hide in the days that follow. (And no, hiding doesn’t mean gobbling up. Don’t listen to them.)

Fall Into Romance – Catherine Bybee

Spooky & sweet Halloween memories from Catherine Bybee!

Fall Into Romance – Brenda Novak

Fortunately, Halloween fun isn’t always dependent on the quality of one’s costume, because these were the best Halloween years of my life, especially once I was old enough to tag along with my older siblings instead of going around with my parents, who always wanted to quit long before I did.

Brenda Novak – Filling the Well

With Halloween on the horizon, we’re talking and thinking of scary things. So let’s address a monster that frightens most authors—writer’s block. A-Matter-of-Grave ConcernAs an author, the one question I get asked more than any other is whether or not I ever get writer’s block. This dreaded inability to produce (so often depicted in the media) strikes fear into a writer’s heart.

Fall Into Romance – Virginia Kantra

I love Halloween. I used to be a children’s storyteller, so Halloween was an excuse to visit my kids’ classrooms and turn all their classmates into toilet paper mummies. And I got to make monster hands out of surgical gloves stuffed with popcorn. Fun times
