Anita Higman | What is Truly Passionate?

When a man kisses a woman—and the two care about each other in an amorous way—well, we’re most likely guaranteed some sweet magic. Maybe even some bolts of lightning. And we women never tire of experiencing or watching or reading about those dreamy moments when a man and woman feel those first stirrings of attraction, […]


Did vampires help us win the American Revolution? That was the question that popped into my mind when I was brainstorming ideas for my first paranormal, SEX & THE SINGLE VAMP while I strolled the streets of Colonial Williamsburg with my family. Not the path of inquiry I would normally take when planning a sexy, […]

Shelly Laurenston | From Here to There

Years ago, I saw a standup comedian on cable wondering how the author of Deliverance, James Dickey, came up with his idea of a male friends’ weekend in the wilds of Georgia. For those who’ve read the book or seen the movie, you know that not everyone on that trip had a pig-squealing good time. […]

Kristen Ethridge | Holiday Ever After

If there’s one thing I’ve learned over the years, just about everyone loves holidays and just about everyone loves love. It’s why grocery stores have started putting up tents in their parking lot once a year. They make it easy to drive through on February 14, pay triple what we’d normally pay for a bouquet […]

Terri Osburn | The Perfect Scene

There comes a point in most every movie when a scene flashes across the wall before me, and I know. I know that this is the scene people will remember. The one they’ll talk about and tell their friends they have to see. I had that feeling while watching the latest Disney Pixar film Frozen. […]

Robyn Rychards | Movies as Inspiration

Let’s talk movies. I have yet to run across someone who doesn’t like them. Personally, they’re one of my favorite hobbies. I enjoy a variety of genres, though Chick Flicks, Dramas and Sci-Fi are my top three. They need to have a believable happy-ever-after though. Real life has enough tragedy. A get-away to the mountains […]

Jodi Linton | Are y’all ready to saddle a cowboy?

Howdy Folks, Let’s kick this cowboy hunting party off with a bang! I just can’t believe I finally get to share sassy, pistol-packing deputy sheriff Laney Briggs and tight-jeans wearing Texas Ranger Gunner Wilson with y’all. It has been a long road, but well worth it. I mean, I would be crazy to say I […]

Sally Eggert | Trust vs. Passion

Okay. Here’s a question for you. It’s one women ask each other all the time, but I’m not sure how often the answers we give can be taken at face value. Maybe that’s because it’s a very personal question, and we reserve the right to keep the whole truth to ourselves. (So don’t answer unless […]

Miralee Ferrell | Stepping into New Waters

I started writing in 2005 when the Lord called me to do so, even though I’d never had a prior desire to write. My first two books were published in 2007, then four books in the Love Finds You line, then my current, three-book historical romance series, Love Blossoms in Oregon, with David C Cook. […]

Virna DePaul | Exclusive Excerpt

Thank you for having me here today! I am excited to tell Fresh Fiction about my upcoming paranormal release TURNED. TURNED is the first book in my new series The Belladonna Agency. The Belladonna Agency is a black ops intelligence agency that hunts paranormal criminals. My vampire hero Ty is out to enlist my heroine […]
