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 […]

Alison Kemper | So what if you’re an adult? It’s okay to read YA novels!

Several weeks back, my best friend sent me a picture of this fantastic bookstore sign: “It’s OK. You have our permission. These books are from our Young Adult Section. But it’s OK to read them even if you are no longer, by any stretch of the imagination, young. In fact, you’ll find they often have […]

Nyrae Dawn | Searching for Beautiful

There are times I look back on my teen years and wince. There were some very happy times but there were definitely hard times too. Those years are full of ups and downs and they can be very hard to understand. When I was a teen, everything was big. My emotions were big. Every fight […]

Shana Galen | When Characters Surprise Authors

What happens when a supporting character in a book gains a following? Lily was always going to get her own book, as she is one of The Three Diamonds, glamorous courtesans and the heroines in my Jewels of the Ton series. What I did not expect was how popular she was going to be with […]


It’s been a long day of writing blogs, so I’ve gotten a bit punchy. What does that mean for you? YOU GET THE FUN BLOG!!!! Yes, the later it gets, the more bizarre I get. So we’re going to do some multiple choice about my book WHAT THE GROOM WANTS alternating with JADE LEE TRIVIA! […]

Laurel Corona | Forbidden Love?

The people of medieval Europe sometimes seem as if they are from another planet, their world view is so radically different from our own. How could people have had such blind faith, asked so few questions, expected so little of life, been satisfied with only the hope of heaven? It’s hard to imagine writing a […]
