There's something I find fascinating about main characters you can't trust.
Whether they're amnesiacs, liars, or some degree of delusional/mentally
off-kilter, an unreliable narrator will keep you guessing up until the end. And
they'll make you question their version of reality. Such is the case with Astrid
O'Malley, the protagonist of my debut novel, ASLEEP FROM DAY, who Read More...
I am so excited to be on Fresh Fiction today to talk about BY A CHARM AND A CURSE!
Charm is my first novel, and I had so much fun writing it. (It's really
easy to say that now that it's done!) Writing about a carnival let me cram in so
many of the things I like: sparkling lights, intricate costumes Read More...
Hi! I'm Maggie Adams, contemporary romance author. I write stories of small-town
heroes and heroines, folks just like you and me that overcome hardships, and
always have hope. That's what I love about the romance genre – whether it's a
paranormal, fantasy, historical or contemporary romance, young or old, the
characters all have one thing in common. They HOPE for love, for a solution to
the crisis, for their Happy Ever After Read More...
MacPherson Castle—Loch Eireachd, Scotland, 1452
Fistfuls of hair fell to the bed like streams of molten iron. The growing pile,
more orange than gold, resembled a dragon's nest, and gleamed seductively in the
firelight. Amber sighed at the sight. If only it were a real dragon's nest and a
beast could rise and smite all her enemies. One very much in particular. Read More...
My interest in wolves was not so much in their physical details, though those
are amazing (did you know wolves can smell something a mile away and hear
something 6 miles away in the forest or 10 miles away in the open?)
I have always been more interested in details about social structure.
For example, subordinate wolves often try to bring peace to the pack after a
fight between dominants. The more violent the fight Read More...
Thank you for inviting me to speak to your readers about THE SECRETS OF MINDFUL
BEAUTY published by Skyhorse Publishing.
I'm Dr Elizabeth Reid Boyd. I'm an author and academic in the
field of gender studies. My natural pen name Eliza Redgold is based upon the
Gaelic meaning of my full name, Elizabeth Reid Boyd. I write contemporary and
historical fiction Read More...
I admit it, I am a pop culture binger. As an author, I'm pretty focused, so I
don't allow myself many distractions when I'm in work mode, but in between
projects…watch out, I'm watching! There are a couple shows I do make time for
during the week because I have to watch in real time. I can't stand to be left out.
I've always been a plot-oriented writer--which can be good news or bad.
Fortunately, the idea for BEYOND DANGER, book #2 of
my Texas Trilogy, came to me while I was working on book #1.
Beau Reese, co-owner of Texas American Enterprises, is black-haired, blue-eyed,
and sexy as hell. He was once a highly successful race car driver, sort of Read More...
Writers all get their start as avid readers, and most of us never stop devouring
books. One of the coolest benefits of being an author is getting the inside
scoop about upcoming books. So, I want to share with you some of the books that
have just released within the past month – or are coming soon – that I’ve
already read and loved, or can’t wait to get my hands on!
Here are those Read More...

If you have people in your life who aren't huge fiction readers (why are you
doing this to yourself), then you may find them rolling their eyes when you
share some insight into life that you gleaned from a book. However, throughout
my reading life, I've found myself taking away profound words of wisdom from
some of my favorite characters. Today I wanted to share some words of wisdom
from Read More...
He doesn't always have to be the hero. I love when the
hero's there to help when he's needed, but he also knows when to step back and
trust that his love can handle the situation. It's great getting rescued and
all, but sometimes it's more fun to be the one to rescue him.
He's Read More...
