Multiplicity and Milestones

on July 10, 2018

by Linda O. Johnston Writing in multiple genres. I’ve blogged about that here before, and now it’s on my mind again enough for me to create another blog post about it. Why? Because I’ll be attending the Romance Writers of America Conference in Denver later this month. The focus there? I’m sure you know: romance…. Read More

Autumn Books and Comfort Food

on November 13, 2017

by Ariella Moon Fall has arrived in the southern California desert! With daytime temperatures dropping 30+ degrees to around 80 degrees Fahrenheit, I can finally fire up the stove and concoct one of my favorite comfort foods, butternut squash soup. You can find the recipe here. Book News Did you know Vikings believed it was… Read More

To Costume or Not to Costume?

on September 26, 2017

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

Location Love?

on August 23, 2017

So, have you ever fallen in love with the setting of a book?  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 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

Two in a Row!

on June 7, 2017

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

Ghosts and Other Supernatural Beings

on March 27, 2017

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

Water of Love

on March 22, 2017

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
