Listening to my Characters

on November 7, 2018

No question, writing dialogue in a novel can be tricky.  Each character has a unique voice distinct from the others in the book. Since I’ve never been particularly good at description, letting the characters tell the story is my favorite way to craft a novel. Of course there has to be narration, ways to move… Read More

And More Anticipation

on October 17, 2018

by Linda O. Johnston Last month I blogged here about anticipation, even including an official definition.  And part of what I was anticipating then came true! Of course, I expected it to.  I’d been waiting for the publication of my second K-9 Ranch Rescue story for Harlequin Romantic Suspense: Trained to Protect.  It was, in… Read More

A Dark and Stormy Night

on September 6, 2018

By Elizabeth Goddard “It was a dark and stormy night” is cliché, as they say, but when you read or hear that familiar phrase it immediately creates an image in your mind. Close your eyes now and think on the phrase. What do you see? What do you feel? A chill crawling up your arm?… Read More

The Texas Mystique

There is something special about Texas.  My husband and I lived in Houston for a couple of months one summer and it was a… Read More

FALLING A LITTLE BIT IN LOVE

on June 5, 2018

by Alexis Morgan I love the sense of anticipation that happens every time I pick up a new romance to read or sit down at my computer to begin a new story. Yes, part of that is knowing I’m setting off on a new adventure, but what really draws me to reading and writing romances… Read More

A Little Time At The Beach

on May 23, 2018

Everyone loves the beach.  Though I live in Montana, I’m fortune to spend my winters at the beach in sunny California.  My writing space looks out on a boat channel that leads to the harbor so I watch the tide go up and down several times a day. A bicycle-ride away, a sandy beach slopes… Read More

When Romance and Adventure Collide

on March 1, 2018

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

Building a Plot

on February 13, 2018

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
