Growing Through Grief: A Story for Father's Day

My father was a Vietnam veteran who suffered from PTSD. A part of me always grieves for him, for how he suffered and how his illness affected our family. And a part of me will always grieve for the little girl whose father came back from war a stranger, and for the relationship we never got to have. His illness took him away from me, from his family, from the man he was before. When Read More...



Tips From Marie Bostwick, Fierce Beyond 50

The latest from FierceBeyond50, a lifestyle blog from NY Times Bestselling author, Marie Bostwick. REVIVING THE LOST ART OF LETTER WRITING Remember when we Read More...



Heather Long | Writing Happily Ever After is my Passion

I can't believe I can finally share my second book in my Bravo Team WOLF series with the world! As some of you may know, I've been writing military romance for years. Joining my love and respect for those who serve with my love of paranormal romance has been a dream come true for me. Although each of these books standalone, they introduce Read More...



Debra Finerman | Woman Writer Finds Her Voice -- And It's a Bark

Harvard Summer Workshop. Advanced Novel Writing Class. Professor Haviaras raises his bushy eyebrows and surveys his classroom of future authors with a withering stare. He says in his Greek accent, "The most important thing to do before beginning your first novel? To find your voice." That advice helped me polish my first manuscript, the one I had brought to the workshop. A few months later, MADEMOISELLE Read More...



Kat Martin Goes to the Beach!

Everyone loves the beach. Though I live in Montana, I'm fortunate to spend my winters at the beach in sunny California. My writing space looks out on a boat channel that leads to the harbor so I watch the tide go up and down several times a day. A bicycle-ride away, a sandy beach slopes down to the water where a frothy tide rolls in and out, the perfect place to talk a Read More...



Author Reader Match with Jennifer Probst

Instead of trying to find your perfect match in a dating app, we bring you the "Reader Match" where we introduce you to authors as a reader you may fall in love with. It's our great pleasure to present Jennifer Probst. Writes: Sexy and erotic contemporary romance. My books are chock full of humor, banter, family drama, kick-ass heroines who always challenge my alpha hero, and of course, rescue dogs. Sometimes Read More...



Maggie Adams | How I came up with Legends: Catori

Growing up in Grafton, Illinois, situated between the Mississippi River and the limestone bluffs carved from it eons ago, the legend of the Piasa Bird is well known. There is even a rendering of the Native American bird on a bluff wall on the National Scenic Byway (or as we like to call it, the River Road). Read More...



Tammy L. Bailey | Why We Remember

I have to admit I admire anyone who can blog on a weekly or monthly basis. I always struggle with a topic or what to say. With my book releasing on Memorial Day, I thought it fitting to talk about my military career and honor those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice. To begin, I joined the military right out of high school, serving both in the active duty Army and in the Army and Read More...



Ainslie Paton | Con Artist or Robin Hood?

I once accidentally smuggled a weapon into a prison. It was a metal hair stick that might as well have been a shiv. I'm not sure that every single item's barcode beeps at the supermarket self-serve before hitting the bag. Sometimes I fail to indicate when I change lanes. And in my day job I'm often called on to write persuasive copy. But I'm no con artist. So how did Read More...



Jeannie Moon | Top Five Nice Guy Heroes

The alpha hero is a mainstay of romance, and whether he be a duke, a quarterback or a shapeshifter, we see the alpha as strong, aggressive and often arrogant in his manner and bearing. Honestly, who hasn't had a serious crush on a big strong alpha at one time or another. In YOU SEND ME, the second book in my Read More...



Lynette Austin | Sorting Through the TBR Pile for My Three Must-Reads This Summer

A warm, lazy summer's day. The scent of jasmine tickles your nose. A glass of sweet tea or lemonade, a front porch swing, and a good book. It's one of life's moments, isn't it? The question is this. Out of all the books on my shelf or in my e-reader, which should I read next? How do I choose just one? If you're like me, you've got a Read More...



Amy Sandas | Dear Reader, I've Changed...

Hello Wonderful Readers, If you are familiar with any of my books, you likely know me as an author of historical romance novels set in Regency England. I absolutely love the period for its upper-class decadence, the covert sensuality that runs beneath all the stiff and proper manners, and the gritty London Underworld which stands in striking opposition to the glittering ballrooms of high society. Although I fully intend to write more stories set Read More...



L.L. Bartlett | A Wedding To Remember

Jeff Resnick has a knack for getting into trouble. And sometimes he isn't the only one. And what is June without a wedding? As it happened, in DEAD IN RED, the second Jeff Resnick Mystery, Jeff's older half-brother, Dr. Richard Alpert, was about to get married to his long-time significant other, Brenda Stanley. It was to be a small wedding. Just Read More...



Susan Kietzman | Grace and Bradley Who?

People often ask me where I get the ideas for my books. And I wish I had a response that involved dreams or visions or muses, but I don't. Because I write contemporary commercial fiction, set in Small Town, America, ideas come at me every day – and often in the most mundane ways. I read a newspaper article. I have a conversation with a friend or a stranger. I hear a song on the Read More...



Love Meghan and Harry? We have the perfect list of royal romances for you to enjoy

“Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown.” ― William Shakespeare, HENRY IV, Part 2 “Hail to the king, baby.” – Ash, ARMY OF DARKNESS Royalty-themed romance is a fun fantasy, and not just limited to historicals. Reading a few books in the Royal Wedding Archives series, by various authors, I got to thinking about all the varieties of romances featuring royalty – contemporary, historical, and paranormal. Some stories have fairy Read More...



Kat Martin | The Texas Mystique

Since my new book, BEYOND CONTROL--Josh Cain and Victoria Bradford's story--is set in Texas, I thought it might be fun to talk about one of my favorite places. There is something special about Texas. My husband and I lived in Houston for a couple of months one summer and it was a wonderful experience, though at times it was sort of good Read More...



Elizabeth Heiter | An Interview with FBI Profiler Evelyn Baine

Today, I’m sitting down with the heroine of The Profiler series, Evelyn Baine, to find out more about how she balances her job with the FBI and the rest of her life: So, Evelyn, what exactly do you do for the FBI? “I’m a criminal investigative analyst – what you might call a profiler – for the Behavioral Analysis Unit. If you’ve got a crime where everything you’ve tried has Read More...



Reader Author Match with Lauren Helms

AUTHOR READER MATCH Writes: Hi! I write new adult romance that is totally nerdy and playful romcoms with a touch of heart. About: I'm a thirty-something newish author who loves all things pop culture. I'm a SAHM of three, book publicist on the side, and read way more than I should…I mean who else is gonna load the dishwasher, fold the mounds of clothes and Read More...



N.J. Walters | Top 5 Reasons to Love a Wolf

Anyone who is familiar with my books knows I love writing paranormal stories. I've written all kinds of shifters—lions and tigers and bears, oh my, and some dragons, too. But my Salvation Pack series is all about werewolves. What is it about wolf shifters that we all love so much? Whatever the mythology a writer chooses to use in Read More...



Author Reader Match with Lauren Layne

Instead of trying to find your perfect match in a dating app, we bring you the "Reader Match" where we introduce you to authors as a reader you may fall in love with. It's our great pleasure to present Lauren Layne. Writes: I write contemporary romance, and I generally classify them as romantic comedies as they’re pretty heavy on the banter, and light on the angst, though I do love ripping Read More...



JoAnn Sky | My Five Go-To Romance Movies

I was recently reviewing lists of potential interview questions for my upcoming blog tour for my debut, NO COWBOY REQUIRED, which released on May 14th (woohoo!). One of the questions was: what do you do when you get stuck writing? That got me thinking. I don't really have something I "do" when I get stuck, except, I guess, stop Read More...



Heidi Chiavaroli | Three Reasons to Choose a Time-Slip Novel for Your Book Club

In the nine months or so since I've become a published author, I've quickly narrowed down my favorite ways to connect with readers. By far, book clubs are at the top of the list. Truly, what could be more fun than sitting with a group and delving into a shared story? Book clubs are made up of enthusiastic readers who seem to have tons of questions. Many times, in visiting with these groups Read More...



Lexi Post | ON HIGHLAND TIME "Leaps" with a Purpose

Do you remember the old television show, "Quantum Leap"? Sam would leap into other people's bodies in history, and Al was able to help him figure how to fix things with his not so trusty computer, Ziggy. I loved that show! But what bothered me was that Sam never had control over where he went, and Al was only a holographic image. So when I Read More...



A spin-off of a spin-off of a spin-off—my head is spinning!

I understand the Fresh Fiction readers love lists. Well, have I got a list for you! All of my books in the same Boston paranormal world. STRANGE NEIGHBORS THE WEREWOLF UPSTAIRS THE VAMPIRE NEXT DOOR Read More...



Candace Blackburn | Must Have Traits for a Swoon Worthy Alpha Male

I am so excited to be given this opportunity. Swoon Worthy and Alpha Male are two phrases that are guaranteed to bring giddiness to romance readers, and a frenzy of one-clicks on the eBook sites. For an author in the genre, we must give our Alphas the traits that will require a fainting couch and a cold shower. Here are a few of mine. A strong heroine. I love to Read More...
