Annie Seaton | Taking readers to Exotic Locations

Who loves to travel and see new places? Even though I am a home body—I love nothing more than curling up on a cold afternoon in winter with a mug of coffee, and a book or my kindle in hand—losing myself in new worlds, we also do a lot of travelling around researching settings for […]

Wine Swirl

Heather Slade | The Background on Wine

In my mid-twenties, I had a group of friends that got together every Friday night for wine tasting.  Sounds like a fairly mundane thing to do, particularly week after week. However, what made this group different was every tasting was blind. The guy who organized these get-togethers would typically choose ten wines, and put them […]

Aussie Heroes and Heartthrobs

Coming to you from Down Under. The great southern land. The sunburnt country. The—actually, that’s plenty of that. Jess Anastasi here and today I’m talking about what Australia has done for the world of heroes.

Vonna Harper | It’s a Secret!

Psst. If you ever run into her, don’t tell her that her old friend writes erotica. There’s probably zero chance the woman I’ll call C will connect the shy conservative she used to hang with with Vonna Harper of the ‘dirty’ books. C is more than a tad judgmental, and I don’t need to listen […]

Dani Pettrey | Life is a Collection of Moments

Happy Friday, friends! I’ve been struggling this week. I’m attempting and rather poorly to juggle health-issues, a book deadline, and life in general (time with God, time with my family, errands, etc.). It’s got me thinking A LOT about balance and priorities. My husband gave me a book he read ages ago, but I’d imagine the […]

Juliette Cross | Why Fairytales?

“Fairy tales do not tell children the dragons exist. Children already know that dragons exist. Fairy tales tell children the dragons can be killed.” –G.K. Chesterton Chesterton touches on a profound point that is relevant even in the modern age. Girls and women of all ages find fairytales alluring. Is it the damsel in distress? […]

In Search of Redemption

Redemption (noun): The action of saving or being saved from error or sin. We all make mistakes. It’s a human condition, part and parcel of being a fallible mortal creature. Fortunately, most of our errors can be rectified by a heartfelt apology. No big deal, right? Then there are the biggies. We commit missteps that […]
