First Kiss…

annAs a writer, I love the first kiss in a story.  I love planning it and writing it.  The first kiss can set the tone for a book’s sensual level.  It also kick-starts the push and pull of the romance.  I’ve written quick ones, long ones, hot ones, and sweet ones.  If you love romance, you know that characters have many different reactions to that first kiss.  Some characters rush into it, others avoid it, some lie about it, some brag about it, a few pretend it never happened, a few follow it with a slap or with great sex . . . or tears . . . or laughter.  But no matter how a character reacts to that first kiss, there’s just no REPEATING it!  A first is forever!

Except for the butterfly background I used for LORD OF THE HUNT’s kiss, I took these photos.  It was fun putting the quotes together with my photos, but don’t be too critical–I’m still trying to figure out how to put the memory card in my camera!

I would love to read your thoughts on first kisses!  How memorable was your first kiss?

I was born in Gillingham, Kent, England, and then moved to suburban Philadelphia where I still live. I have a great husband who always picks up the slack for me! I also have a handsome son and a beautiful daughter . . . they take after their dad!

I love reading and writing both historical and paranormal romance, but whichever genre I choose, I like to include a puzzle for the reader to solve along with the characters.

I’m super excited that my books are being reissued as ebooks. As someone who is addicted to reading, I’m never without my ebook reader. Here’s what’s happening with my books . . .

My “lords” are coming out now. You can download the books by clicking on their titles.

LORD OF THE KEEP

LORD OF THE MIST

LORD OF THE HUNT

My “Tolemac Wars” series is coming this summer and fall:

VIRTUAL HEAVEN in August

VIRTUAL DESIRE in September

VIRTUAL WARRIOR in October

I want to thank my many readers who kept in touch with me during my hiatus from publishing while I was undergoing a battle with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia. I’m happy to say I feel great and am in remission again. If you ever need a charity to adopt, I highly recommend the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. The medicines I received did not exist five years before I was diagnosed! They are making strides against blood disorders every day.

Check me out on Facebook and if you join my mailing list, I’ll let you know as each of my books becomes available for download.

Warmest Regards,

Ann

“Ann Lawrence. . . captures the reader on the first page.” —RT Book Reviews

“Ann Lawrence has shown her versatility as a writer, alternating between a virtual fantasy series and her medieval historical romances. The common denominator between the two is the strength of her heroines, and the courage of her heroes, as they fight seemingly insurmountable odds to grab the brass ring.”
—Leslie Tramposch, ParaNormalRomance

September Takes a Mysterious Turn

bouchercon-2016

Writerspace has always been about love and mystery. But sometimes the latter can get short shrift. But not this September. September this year meant Bouchercon 2016: Blood on the Bayou, with the world mystery convention being held in the most fitting of places: New Orleans. (Think ComicCon for mystery lovers or RWA for crime buffs… Read More
