Elizabeth Haysmont on the Mystic Month of May

E. writes a knock-out, short story, folks. Read and comment here to win a copy of her book! When you’re done here, mosey over to her place to check out Helen Hardt’s steamy excerpt of Ivy League Cowboy–the last stop on the CRW blog hop. Every comment left during this hop gets entered for a Read more of this post »



End of Month Round-up

Whew! This month has been grueling for some reason. Must be something about those months with 31 days to make you feel like you’re going through life in slow motion. Anyhow, here’s all the news that’s fit to print. 1. I’m going to Rom Con! Thank you to Jessica Aspen and the winner who couldn’t Read more of this post »



At Half Staff

Since I set the majority of my stories in Edenton, and because Memorial Day has its roots firmly planted in the aftermath of the Civil War, I thought this photo I took back in 2007 would be doubly appropriate for this blog hop. This fallen soldier statue stands at the end of Broad Street where Read more of this post »



Friendly Friday with Nancy DiMauro

Hey! Happy release day to me! To celebrate my Musa debut, for today’s Friendly Friday a fellow Musa author takes the spotlight. Nancy DiMauro writes stories that feature kick-ass characters who aren’t averse to romance. See for yourself! Holley Trent: Tell us about yourself.

How headhunting works. (More or less.)

Executive Decision comes out Friday, and what I may not have told you is that Ellen, the heroine, has a job I’ve done myself in the past. I used to be the phone jockey/office manager at a busy headhunting firm. Later, I turned into the hag that posted little passive aggressive notes on the bathroom Read more of this post »



The NC I Know.

I have a love-hate relationship with North Carolina, especially right now. Its politics make me reel sometimes, but the culture gets into you and fills you up so when you leave you’re frequently overcome by nostalgia and a niggling desire to go “home.” Although I don’t live there at the moment I still set my Read more of this post »



Friendly Friday with Emma Lane

Hi, all! Happy Friday! My motto is “never stop learning!” (That is, when it’s not “never stop refilling my coffee”) so I’m tickled that fellow Musa Publishing author Emma Lane has stopped by to share some information about regency romances with us. I actually had no idea what that category referred to and now I Read more of this post »



I’m a hothouse flower.

This is the time of year that my friends back in North Carolina start to complain about the stifling humidity settling in now. It’s thunderstorm season. I think they should keep their traps shut. I’M FREEZING here in the west. Okay, maybe that’s an exaggeration. The temperature has been hovering around a daytime average of Read more of this post »



Why I’m so svelte…

It’s because I eat stuff like this: http://musapublishing.blogspot.com/2012/05/real-down-home-cooking-with-holley.html I shared my eastern NC barbecue recipe on the Musa Publishing blog today. If you discount the bun and the hushpuppies, it’s TOTALLY low-fat. And filling. And good for your sinuses.



When I’m not here, I’m somewhere else.

Last Friday when I was busy doing fretting over the urban fantasy novel I’m stomping into submission, I forgot to tell y’all that I had an interview up at Kate Roth’s place. And guess what? She’s coming to HolleyBlog on Friday to tell you all about her novel The Low Notes. Like how we arranged Read more of this post »
