Costumes. It seems like an innocuous topic, especially at this time of year. But I’ve found that it can be a polarizing subject. People tend to fall strongly in favor or against the idea—for themselves, at least. I’ve always fallen firmly in the costume camp. I love Halloween parties. I was the mom who dressed… Read More
Deb Marlowe loves History, England and Men in Boots. Clearly she was meant to write Regency Historical Romance!
Deb grew up in Pennsylvania with her nose in a book. Luckily, she'd read enough romances to recognize the true modern hero she met at a college Halloween party---even though he wore a tuxedo t-shirt instead of breeches and tall boots. They married, settled in North Carolina and produced two handsome, intelligent and genuinely amusing boys. Though she spends much of her time with her nose in her laptop, for the sake of her family she does occasionally abandon her inner world for the domestic adventure of laundry, dinner and carpool. Despite her sacrifice, not one of the men in her family is yet willing to don breeches or tall boots. She's working on it. Deb loves to hear from readers!

Reveled in the descriptions, longed to travel and see it, experience it for yourself? *Raising my hand!* I started early, too. 🙂 When I was a young reader, I knew I couldn’t travel to Pern or Prydain or Neverland, but I’d always… Read More
by Linda O. Johnston I’ve been talking a lot lately about writing in multiple genres and thought I’d do so here, too. I had a blog posted about it at another site, plus I talked about it at the Santa Clarita Romance Authors meeting last weekend. Why talk about it? Because I do it! I’ve… Read More
by Linda O. Johnston The dog days of summer are here, which makes me very happy. Oh, not the heat associated with those dog days, but just the fact they are called dog days. For anyone who doesn’t know it–or if you didn’t read my post last month about letting me bark to you about… Read More
by Linda O. Johnston This month is fairly unusual for me. I’m fortunate enough to have had quite a few books traditionally published, with more coming up in the future. But it’s rare that they’re published back-to-back, one each in two adjoining months. Like now. As I’ve mentioned here before, BAD TO THE BONE, my… Read More
by Augustina Van Hoven Do you believe in the supernatural? Have you ever thought you were by yourself only to catch a movement in the corner of your eye? Belief in these things is a personal matter, but there is a lot of evidence that suggest they really do exist. The common belief is that… Read More
My new release next week, SEAL Of Time, part of the Trident Legacy duet with Kathryn LeVeque, is about a hero who is a son of Poseidon. I had a great time with all the water images that came to mind as I was writing this novella. The fact that Tay Demmett is a Navy… Read More
by Linda O. Johnston Last month I blogged about the end of 2016, so it feels only natural to blog today about the beginning of 2017. If you read my blog last month you’ll know that I anticipate the publication of two new books, in different genres, this year: BAD TO THE BONE, the third… Read More
by Deb Marlowe Halloween! When Ava Stone approached me about taking part in the Regency anthology series, The Haunting of Castle Keyvnor, I was thrilled! I love Halloween! I enjoy the decorations and dressing up and the fun. I love holiday novellas too. And though I do write paranormal in my Young Adult Series ,… Read More

LET’S TALK ABOUT…FINDING YOUR VOICE
When I first decided to make my October blog about finding your voice, I planned to come at the subject from a writer’s perspective. Find Your Voice. In other words, what is your style? Punctuation. Syntax. Character development. Something that makes you stand out. A unique voice in a sea of millions. However, as the… Read More
