Inara Scott | Your Secret Indulgence

Right now, I have three things hidden in my sock drawer. Item one: a large bag of left-over Halloween candy. (To clarify, the bag is large, but the candy is mostly gone. Sad face.) Item two: a box of mini dark chocolate bars from Trader Joe’s. (Also mostly empty. See a theme here?) Item three: […]

Marina Adair | Most Romantic Inns of the South

  I love traveling almost as much as I love romance. Which made researching for my latest release, SUGAR’S TWICE AS SWEET, so much fun. After being dumped, abandoned, and left homeless, my heroine Josephina Harrington leaves the big apple behind for the small town of Sugar, Georgia to turn her great aunt’s dilapidated boarding […]

Shannyn Schroeder | The Best Things About Fall

I am a lover of summer. I despise winter, so I really don’t hold much fondness for fall since it leads straight to the one season I hate. Some people love the fall because of the beautiful colors on the trees, the cooling temperatures, or the pumpkin-flavored everything. Not me. For me, the best thing […]

Vanessa Kelly | Renegade Royals

I have so much to be thankful for this week, including the fact that I have a new historical romance release out tomorrow. TALL, DARK AND ROYAL is the second novella in my Renegade Royals Series, which features heroes who are the illegitimate sons of England’s royal dukes. The leader of the Renegade Royals is […]

Sheri Cobb South | Family Plot

As a writer of fiction, I tend to spend a good deal of time in an imaginary world of my own creation; that seems to come with the territory, and as long as it doesn’t interfere with my functioning in real life (as it did the time I became so wrapped up in mental plotting […]

Sheila Roberts | Plenty of Holiday Spirit for Me

I remember last Christmas asking myself, “What would happen if Santa ever lost his holiday spirit?” Hopefully, Christmas is about more than the jolly, old guy in the red suit and the world wouldn’t end if he took some time off. Still, I thought this would be a fun idea to play with, so I […]

Wendy Sparrow | Where Heroes Come From

One of the most common questions asked of writers is where our ideas come from, but far less frequently asked is where our characters come from. I remember reading that J.K. Rowling said that Harry Potter walked fully-formed into her head. Other writers such as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle acknowledge that their characters, like Doyle’s […]

Randi Cooley Wilson | Why I Write New Adult

If you stop to think about your life’s story, as a whole, you’ll discover each layer is composed of many chapters filled with mystery, romance, relationships, and outcomes – both good and bad. There are innocent moments that take your breath away and if you’re lucky, instances that will define you. When I look over […]

Sonya Weiss | Writing Influences

Someone asked me if I could do any other profession except write, what it would be. I would have become a veterinarian. I’ve always loved animals. I think I got that from my parents. Both were avid animal lovers and I can remember one time when my dad brought home an injured pregnant bunny rabbit. […]
