Re: The Wild Irish Sea (11:45am July 8, 2010):
Looks like a great book - and, I love happy endings! Thanks for the giveaway.
Re: A Thread So Thin (3:05pm May 8, 2010):
Thanks for the great post. I read YA books but only because I enjoy variety in my reading. I don't necessarily drift to a favorite author's YA books just because I enjoy their adult books. I guess it's just what hits my fancy when I'm looking for a new book to read.
Re: Rule's Bride (10:24pm April 23, 2010):
These books look great - can't wait to read them! Thanks!
Re: The Highest Stakes (5:43pm April 1, 2010):
An unusual combination, but a very interesting one. I'd love to read this book. Thanks!
Re: An Earl to Enchant (1:21pm March 30, 2010):
"Yada, yada, yada" from the Seinfeld show comes to mind.
Re: Aries Rising (3:28pm March 26, 2010):
I'd love to read your book - please enter me in the contest. Thanks!
Re: The Highlander's Sword (10:31pm March 17, 2010):
Highland romances are one of my favorite kinds of books to read. Thanks for the giveaway!
Re: Lake Magic (12:27pm March 3, 2010):
Good luck on your first novel - I love the cover!
Re: Cowboy Trouble (3:55pm February 26, 2010):
Wow! How one chicken spawned a whole book - interesting.
Re: Hasta La Vista, Lola! (11:24pm January 29, 2010):
One of my favorite mystery series is the Patricia Cornwell series.
Re: Come Hell Or High Water (5:28pm January 6, 2010):
A demon & a Scotsman - Hmmmmmm.......
At the moment, I can't think of any mistakes that ended up wonderful.
Re: Fugitive (11:32pm January 5, 2010):
Great interview! Can't wait to read "Fugitive".
Re: Dangerous Highlander (12:37pm January 4, 2010):
I never realized how little influence an author may have with the title or cover of a book. I really thought the author at least had input into this process & I guess it is the good publishing houses that allow input.
I love the titles for your books & I do like the cover for "Dangerous Highlander".
Re: Dancing On The Head Of A Pin (11:31pm December 6, 2009):
I'd give this gift to my niece - she loves to read books like these.
Re: Searching For Pemberley (11:54pm December 3, 2009):
I know what you mean about walking around with a story in your head. I walk around with lists in my head - what chores I have to do, what phone calls I have to make, etc. I'm not really settled until I can get it all down on paper!
Re: Scorched (10:49pm December 1, 2009):
Looks like a fun read - please count me in! Thanks.
Re: Take Me For A Ride (10:22pm November 25, 2009):
My worst disaster in the kitchen happened last year at Thanksgiving. I was trying to bake my pumpkin pies. The aluminum pan I had the two pies on in the oven buckled & promptly unloaded the pie filling onto the racks & the bottom of my oven. It was such a mess! I had to try to clean the pumpkin filling up while the oven was still hot so that my house wouldn't smell like burnt pumpkin for days! I was able to combine what was left of the pie filling into one pie shell & tried to bake that. Well, needless to say, it was the worst pumpkin pie I have ever made.
Re: Captive of Sin (11:18pm November 24, 2009):
My favorite tortured hero is Duncan MacLeod of the Clan MacLeod in the Highlander movies & TV shows.
Re: Dark Legacy (10:41pm November 19, 2009):
Great post! I especially agree with your statements about the key messages at the center of our lives.
Re: The Cowboy From Christmas Past (7:00pm November 12, 2009):
Happy Holidays to you & yours! Thanksgiving sure came fast & I'm so unprepared for it. Christmas is even worse! But, as in years past everything will fall in to place & I'll be able to enjoy family and friends.
Re: Willoughby's Return (6:40pm November 12, 2009):
Definitely a ball gown! I love the covers of novels that show a beautiful gown on the cover.
Re: Santa Honey (2:02pm October 23, 2009):
This is sure a sad state of affairs. I don't like the Kindle, etc & shy away from e-books. I like to hold a book in my hands & turn the pages in anticipation of what happens next.
I, too, have noticed the overabundance of vampire & paranormal books. At one time, I didn't mind reading one of these books for a change of pace. Now, I can feel my interest waning because of this overabundance.
I have to admit that I don't run out & buy every new book that appeals to me - I'd never be able to afford it! But, I do purchase some titles & make sure it gets passed around so many can enjoy it. Then, I donate it to my local library so many more can enjoy it.
Re: Possess Me At Midnight (10:40am October 22, 2009):
I enjoyed this post. Love is hard to define & is different for each person. I imagine it's difficult to write a romance novel that will appeal to a wide range of people because of this.
Re: My Wicked Vampire (4:05pm October 20, 2009):
I prefer humor in my romance novels rather than darkness. Reading is an escape for me & there is enough darkness in every day life that I don't need to have it in my reading.
Re: The Trials Of The Honorable F. Darcy (4:58pm October 15, 2009):
I identify with Elizabeth. Thanks for the great post - I've enjoyed reading about your book on the blogs.
Re: The Hunt (3:25pm October 12, 2009):
Your sure turned your lemons into lemonade - this book sounds great! I look forward to reading it.
Re: The Lute And The Liar (11:02pm October 7, 2009):
I like the way you look at writing a book - it allow the imagination to run rampant & come up with some interesting writing.
Re: Lucky Break (12:05pm September 29, 2009):
I agree with you - I like to see humor in contemporary romance as well as strong heroes & heroines. Thanks for the giveaway!
Re: Bluegrass Christmas (4:26pm September 28, 2009):
I like quirky characters too. Also, I'm glad to see all the new Christmas novels coming out now - I just love to read a few throughout the holidays.
Re: The Splendor Falls (3:40pm September 10, 2009):
There's another mystery writer named Nancy Fairbanks who writes the Culinary Food Writer series with some wonderful titles: Mozzarella Most Murderous; Bon Bon Voyage; Crime Brulee; Death A L'Orange. Are you tempted yet?
Re: Highland Rebel (10:43am September 3, 2009):
I often get lost in another world when reading historical fiction or fantasy. A good example for me is the Harry Potter series - those books just took me away to a magical place & I just couldn't put them down when I was reading them.
Re: The Fixer Upper (1:33pm August 23, 2009):
Friends & family know I read just about anything - except self-help, self-improvement books. Sometimes I feel that my book group thinks my suggestions are empty literary calories because there is no "meat" for discussion. But, I feel book group is meant to be fun & our choices should be a wide variety.
Re: Gordath Wood (11:22am August 22, 2009):
Both sets of books look great. I'd enjoy reading any of them but Scott Lynch's books caught my eye!
Re: Tortured (5:08pm August 18, 2009):
Thanks for the opportunity to win your book - it looks so interesting.
Re: The Cowboy From Christmas Past (1:26pm August 13, 2009):
Mimi sounds like a wonderful grandmother.
Re: Breaking Loose (1:18pm August 13, 2009):
Re: Seduce Me (10:30am July 29, 2009):
"Seduce Me" looks like fun!
Re: Beloved Vampire (6:31pm July 23, 2009):
This looks so good - I'm going to have to put it on my TBR list!
Re: The Diva Takes The Cake (2:38pm July 23, 2009):
The Domestic Diva Mystery Series looks a fun series to read. I'd really enjoy "The Diva Takes the Cake" because I had a really great time planning my wedding over 20 years ago & it would be great to see how things have changed!
Re: Object of Desire (4:37pm July 16, 2009):
I also love the combination of romance & suspense - this looks like a great read!
Re: Dragons Prefer Blondes (1:40pm July 16, 2009):
I'd choose Batman (but I wouldn't mind Wolverine, either!)
Re: Earth Guys Are Easy (10:45pm July 15, 2009):
Congrats on the weight loss! My favorite oldie but goodie is In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida by Iron Butterfly - definitely shows my age!
Re: The Guernsey Literary And Potato Peel Pie Society (10:37am July 11, 2009):
For me, it was "Peony In Love". The book was okay, but I found many of the images disturbing.
Re: The Cowboy From Christmas Past (4:05pm July 3, 2009):
Haven't seen THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON yet. We just watched VALKYRIE last evening & it was excellent. It makes you wonder how history would have been changed if Operation Valkyrie had actually succeeded.
Re: Love At First Flight (3:56pm July 3, 2009):
The book looks interesting - congrats on the release!
Re: A Stroke of Magic (3:54pm July 3, 2009):
My quirk quotient is probably close to yours in the range of 3 to 4. I'm not really a quirky person, but there are some things I am quirky about!
Re: Wild Heart (3:51pm July 3, 2009):
What trials & tribulations to get published! Congrats on your new book - the cover is beautiful.
Re: Dial Emmy For Murder (10:28am June 21, 2009):
Wow! Where do you find the time? I've been following you on Y&R for years & I'm sure your books are enjoyable to read. I wish you continued success in all you do!
Re: Queen Takes King (10:25am June 21, 2009):
Thanks for the pictures - I love to see authors in their element.
Re: A Thread Of Truth (10:23am June 21, 2009):
Typos usually don't ruin a book for me. I notice them, but consider it just a matter of bad proofing.
My first experience with Marie Bostwick's books was "A Single Thread". That book really resonated with me & has become one of my all-time favorite books. I was thrilled to see "A Thread of Truth" & am looking forward to reading it.
Re: Jump (3:02pm June 18, 2009):
"Jump" looks like a good mystery - right up my alley! Thanks for the great post.
Re: The Texas Twins (1:00pm June 10, 2009):
I, too, tend to be a pack rat. As a result, I live in constant clutter & chaos. I'm in the process of trying to dig out! But, to escape it, I go read a good book for a little while - then I'm ready to take it on again.
Re: The Texas Twins (12:55pm June 10, 2009):
I love to do puzzles & usually I'm a very patient person. Puzzles help bring our extended family together. When we're together for the holidays or on vacation, we spend a lot of time building puzzles & talking about life!
Re: Beneath Bone Lake (10:54am May 28, 2009):
I'm not afraid of spiders, but I sure hate snakes!
Re: My Forbidden Desire (10:16pm May 25, 2009):
I never really think about any of these thing. I usually just read the story as written by the author & consider it all magical.
Re: Dragons Prefer Blondes (11:25pm May 23, 2009):
I'm probably somewhere in the middle. I do keep a book list with what I've read & what I'd like to read. Then, when I go to the library or bookstore, I can choose what I might like off the list.
Re: Saved By The Monarch (3:03pm May 20, 2009):
Looks like a good book!
Re: Killer Cuts (9:50pm May 18, 2009):
Lots of interesting books included in the group. Would love to read any of them.
Re: Kissing The Man Next Door (9:48pm May 18, 2009):
I've never had any interest in any neighbor I've ever had - it's too close to home & I wouldn't ever want to feel uncomfortable in my own neighborhood as a result of a liaison with a neighbor.
Re: Would-Be Witch (1:34pm March 16, 2009):
Historical Setting: London, England
Re: At Grave's End (4:08pm December 31, 2008):
Your books sure look interesting. I'd love to read "At Grave's End"!
Have a happy & prosperous New Year!
