The Great Prologue Debate

The Great Prologue Debate

I’m actively revising my next novel to be submitted soon, and in doing so, I’ve had a lot of trouble with the chapter lengths. On my first formal revision, I felt like my chapters were way too short — sometimes only 5 pages, double spaced!! — so I rectified this by combining. A lot. And then I felt like they were too long. And then I said “F it” and sent it to my beta readers, assuming that hitting the ‘send’…

A St. Patrick’s Day Thought and Blog Hop

A St. Patrick’s Day Thought and Blog Hop

This is my first time participating in a blog hop. (AM I DOING IT RIGHT?!?!) So. A quick background about St. Patrick’s Day. (I had to google this.) St. Patrick’s Day originated in the early seventeenth century and is celebrated on the 17th of March due to the death of Ireland’s patron saint Patrick.  In the years since, it’s been celebrated everywhere from Japan to the International Space Station. One year, I celebrated St. Patrick’s day in an unusual place….

Release Day MADNESS!

Release Day MADNESS!

My book came out today, which means that it quietly moved from the “Coming Soon” section on my publisher’s website to the “Available Now” section, a whole 5 paragraphs HIGHER. I’m thrilled. I go to www.breathlesspress.com and there’s my novel. For sale. Like any other regular book in the world. I’ve been waiting for this exact moment since I was 9 years old. It feels mighty great. In honor of this day, I plan on wearing a dress this evening and…

Is this what they call a ‘Buy Link’?

Is this what they call a ‘Buy Link’?

Hey folks — it’s a pretty Tubular Tuesday. Life is sparkly and fun and crisp as usual, but on top of all that, we’ve added a special layer to the Tuesday Cake. Something of a buttermilk cream frosting that may or may not give you intestinal pain later depending on how long it’s left out. Today my interview with my publisher, Breathless Press, came out. It’s a little peek into my life, with a pretty juicy excerpt as well. Just…

A Writer’s Crisis: Do I Write Erotica or NOT?

A Writer’s Crisis: Do I Write Erotica or NOT?

There came a time earlier in my writing career when I was submitting manuscripts happily and wantonly. Absolutely smitten with my cover letter, so proud of particular paragraphs in my novel and just completely ready to take the romance publishing world by storm. Well, maybe not by storm — but I was completely ready to whip up a mild breeze and ruffle someone’s metaphorical panties with my novel. I researched publishers. I adhered to submission guidelines. I crafted my emails…

In Defense of Romance

In Defense of Romance

It took me a long time to come out of the Romance closet. Plenty of negative connotations surround the romance genre, which hover like a cloud of mosquitos on a balmy summer night, constantly ready to bite. At least, that’s how it felt to me. From my earliest days as a writer of romance, I felt obliged to keep my passion a secret. I was afraid of someone belitting my dreams. Afraid of them mocking the only desire that had…

My Novel is ‘Jaded’, But I’m Not…I Swear

My Novel is ‘Jaded’, But I’m Not…I Swear

My first novel, Jaded, is due out from Breathless Press soon. Much like the title suggests, the main character Isabella is a jaded gal. She’s had really bad luck in love — god, who hasn’t? — and has done some soul searching that leads her to completely eschew men. As she’s adjusting to the new lifestyle, something her family just doesn’t understand or accept, here comes Luke Peterson, a totally badass hunkathon on repeat who completely challenges both Isabella’s decision…
