Elia Winters | Erotic Romance: Reading And Writing Without Guilt

Like many writers, I’ve always been a reader. There’s a special place in my heart for literature, whether classic or modern: Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, George Orwell, Margaret Atwood, Barbara Kingsolver, the list goes on. I’m pursuing a Master’s degree in Literature; I teach high school English; I’ve loaded my ereader with every classic available […]

Victoria James | My Cowboy Top Ten List

Ach! I’ve always loved cowboys! Growing up, I have vivid memories of my father watching endless Clint Eastwood westerns. Clint was my kind of cowboy-strong, silent, handsome. In romances, the cowboy is a long-standing beloved hero archetype. Here’s my top ten list for must-have character traits for any cowboy hero I write (in no particular […]

M. Leighton | Wild Ones Continue…

Laney Holt is the ultimate good girl. As the preacher’s daughter, she has lived a sheltered lifestyle, but that doesn’t mean she hasn’t ever been tempted once or twice to be bad. Jake Theopolis is as bad as they come, and he enjoys tempting the good girl in ways he knows she likes. A few […]

Thanks so much for having me here today, so I can shout about the fact that Free Falling’s getting a re-release with Riptide! I’m so excited about this, you have no idea. For me, this is the book that started the Hell or High Water series (see below for more on that). Free Falling originally […]

Tell Us Your WORST Break Up Stories…

Entangled Publishing is so excited for their new release, MUSTANG SASSY as it deals with something we all dread and hate… break ups. On the one hand, it can be good to dump all that unwanted weight of a cheating boyfriend. But being the dumpee? *Shudders* That’s when things sometimes go bad. It got us […]

Amy K. Sorrells

“No! It’s not time—you gotta go back!” I wanted to wrap my hands around the tender green, pointed tops of the crocuses and daffodils poking through last year’s mulch, intent on emerging despite the six inches of show that fell on them last week. They’re not the only ones impatient for flip-flop and jacket weather, […]

Harry Kraus | A Writer’s Position: Platform for Proclamation or Footstool to serve?

Let’s talk honestly about a major fiction turnoff: using a story as an excuse to preach, moralize or convince others of the author’s opinion. But we all have opinions, don’t we? (You know what they say about opinions, right? Something about we all have them just like that lower gastrointestinal sphincter and well…I just won’t […]
