by Corrina Lawson I love to read series. But I’m weird about it. I’m one of those readers who will read a series out of order. I know, I hear some of you out there wince at the idea. But I’m talking about series that are connected stories, rather than a series that’s basically one… Read More

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
Hi All! So, we’re counting down the days until Vampire’s Faith releases on Tuesday (June 19th)! This is a huge return to the Dark Protectors series, but it kicks off a whole new series arc, so it’s a great place for new fans to jump into the world of the Realm. Existing fans will see… Read More
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.

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
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 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

Where Everyone Knows Your Name: Writing small-town stories.
I have nothing against big cities. My youngest lives in Seattle, two blocks from the Space Needle. I fall more in love with the city each time I visit, but when it comes to where to set my stories, small-town wins every time. Although I admit, sitting near the water’s edge at Lake Union and… Read More
