Vonnie Hughes on that Pacific microcosm: New Zealand

View Larger Map Do you scan book blurbs for setting info? I do. Not gonna lie. If an author reveals a book is set somewhere in the South, I’m 50% more likely to take a closer look. If it’s set in North Carolina? Heck, I start reading sample pages. I’m intrigued by settings. I’m one Read more of this post »

Patricia Yager Delagrange and Women’s Fiction

At this stage in my life, I don’t have the guts to write women’s fiction. And to be clear, here, I mean mainstream fiction that contains themes relating to women’s issues, but excluding romance. For me, it’s a personality thing. I like a guaranteed happy ending. Now, back when I was just getting started with Read more of this post »

The Five W’s with Sharon Ledwith and The Last Timekeepers and The Arch of Atlantis

Hey, everyone! Let’s take a deep breath in. (Breathes in.) And a long, cleansing breath out. (Breathes out.) Romance is exhausting. Even we authors have to take a break from it sometimes. Playing yenta and making everyone we write about fall in love is mentally taxing. So, today at the blog I’ve got a bit Read more of this post »

I see a pattern here.

Yesterday I went to establish my medical care at a women’s health practice in Boulder and got measured for the first time in God-knows-how-long. “Sixty and a half,” the nurse said, scribbling my stats on her pad like it was no big deal. I bent over to put my sandals back on and was like, 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 »
