Size Does Matter! Or does it?

By Tee O’Fallon Many people have asked me what it’s like to be a female gun-toting, badge-carrying federal agent, particularly one who’s not six-foot-four and hulking with muscle. There are several ways I could answer this, but the truth is always best, so here goes. While I’m only a whopping five-feet-one inch tall sans shoes… Read More

A Party to Remember

by Kat Martin Since my hero in BEYOND DANGER, Beau Reese, is a mega rich playboy, a once-famous race car driver, I thought it might be fun to write about a mega-wealthy party I got invited to a few years back.  Well, more than a few, considering it was a millennium party celebrating the thousand… Read More

When Romance and Adventure Collide

by Anna del Mar I was recently doing an interview when the question came up. “Anna,” the interviewer asked, “why do you write romantic suspense?” I actually had to think about that one. A writer’s genre choice is not a simple decision and yet most of the time, we choose our genres not with our… Read More

Hooked on a Series

As a writer, I’ve written both medieval and western historical romances and also thrown in a few romantic suspense novels along the way. All of these novels were standalones. As a reader, I’m drawn to series, though. I love following continuing characters and seeing their growth and development over time. You think I would have… Read More

1 LET’S TALK ABOUT…HAPPY

Warning. Today is more of a blurb than a blog. Short, to the point. Just something I wanted to share. I want to be happy. Doesn’t everyone? Heck, according to the Declaration of Independence—United States of America edition—one of our inalienable rights is the right to happiness. Or rather, the pursuit of happiness. You have… Read More

Love, Friendships and Oh My, My!

The Art of Stories-Within-Stories  

by Carter Wilson There is little more satisfying when writing a book as creating stories within the story. Looking back on my publishing history, this seems to be a theme with me. In one book, a successful novelist re-writes his manuscript to reflect what’s actually happening to him. In another, an imprisoned man is forced… Read More

Valentine’s Day -Thumbs Up or Down?

Last Thursday I took part in a Valentine’s Day Party on Facebook. One of the authors asked the readers–How did you meet your husband or true love? It seemed an appropriate question for that event. Two readers, however, responded that they were single and were happy to be. And I thought-YES! I know that it’s… Read More

2 Building a Plot

by Kat Martin I’ve always been a plot-oriented writer–which can be good news or bad.  Fortunately, the idea for BEYOND DANGER, book #2 of my Texas Trilogy, came to me while I was working on book #1. Beau Reese, co-owner of Texas American Enterprises, is black-haired, blue-eyed, and sexy as hell.  He was once a… Read More

Now you have no excuse because you know how to find a restroom, catch a doubloon without getting your fingers stomped, and—most importantly—stay out of jail.
