Good Vs. Evil – Who Will You Choose?

Let’s talk HEROES! I think most of my fellow females will agree the hero is a focal point of the story. We’re all on a perpetual hunt for new book boyfriends, right ladies??? That said, what kind of guy do you want to read about? The perpetually good guy who always does the right thing, no matter what theContinue reading “Good Vs. Evil – Who Will You Choose?”

“Nothing Ventured” Is Live! It’s Giveaway Time!

It’s LAUNCH day!!!!!! Let’s CELEBRATE!!!! How about a giveaway, in honor of our delicious hero, Chris Camden????? Here’s to Chris, the Adonis and certifiable charmer with more lines than a supermarket before a snowstorm. With a panty-melting smile, ridiculous body that oozes pheromones, and a hot car, he’ll have your knees weak within minutes. I promise.Continue reading ““Nothing Ventured” Is Live! It’s Giveaway Time!”

Spreading The Seed

I love spinning tales of romance in the Silicon Valley setting. I’m told I seriously over-glamorize the lifestyles of my heroes and heroines but whatever. I write FICTION so isn’t that kind of a requirement? I mean, I have to keep things interesting. right? WINK, WINK As an entrepreneur, I am fascinated with goings-on in the Valley.Continue reading “Spreading The Seed”

I’ll Be Wearing Valentino When I Collect My Oscar

Gillian Flynn is living my dream. Not only is she an A-list New York Times best-selling author, but she’s also headed for the Oscars with the film adaptation of “Gone Girl.”  Red carpet, designer gown, borrowed Harry Winston jewels…yes, she is a freaking rock star in my opinion. My books take me about three-four monthsContinue reading “I’ll Be Wearing Valentino When I Collect My Oscar”

A Knife-Wielding Lunatic Is On The Loose In My Neighborhood…I Bet He’s Got A Pretty Dark Backstory

I’m officially stuck.  I’ve written exactly 6 pages of Venture Forward and…screeching halt!  Why?  Because although my hero fascinates me, I don’t know where the hell I’m going with his story.  I’ve played the “What If” game for DAYS and nothing!  But this is my normal process.  I just write, sometimes hitting 100 pages beforeContinue reading “A Knife-Wielding Lunatic Is On The Loose In My Neighborhood…I Bet He’s Got A Pretty Dark Backstory”

Desperately Seeking Smokin’ Hot SEXpert For The Bargain Price Of $250K

It is very rare that I pick up a book (or rather, my Kindle) and lap up the words on the page (or screen) like a parched dog at a water bowl in hundred-degree weather.  VERY rare. But last night, I sprinted through Taint by SL Jennings like a woman possessed…or more appropriately, obsessed. I had to finish it.  Raw is theContinue reading “Desperately Seeking Smokin’ Hot SEXpert For The Bargain Price Of $250K”

The Lady Devil With A Passion For Jamba Juice

As I write this post, I am actively fighting the urge to devour the remaining Russell Stover chocolate marshmallow eggs in the pantry. Just saying.  I really need to get rid of this leftover Easter candy.  Sugar comas = lost productivity!  I get way too fidgety to write compelling dialogue when I’m all amped upContinue reading “The Lady Devil With A Passion For Jamba Juice”

It’s All About The Cover…And The Eye Candy On Display

Regardless of the publishing method I ultimately choose for Unlikely Venture, one thing is certain.  I need a cover.  But not just “a cover” – the right cover, the one that will stop potential readers and cause them to click into my virtual world so they can determine if my story is worth their timeContinue reading “It’s All About The Cover…And The Eye Candy On Display”

Things You Can’t Escape As A Romance Author

There are two things that you can’t escape as a romance author.   First, everyone who reads your book will automtically assume your hero is modeled after your spouse or significant other.  No matter what you say, they will be convinced otherwise. Second, readers will infer that the bedroom scenes are based on your ownContinue reading “Things You Can’t Escape As A Romance Author”

I Need A Hero! Wait…No I Don’t!

I hate a weak heroine.  Really, the whole “damsel in distress” thing is so irritating.  I don’t have a lot of free time on my hands.  With three children, a full-time job and aspirations to become a bestselling author, my plate is pretty full.  If I’m going to give up a few hours of myContinue reading “I Need A Hero! Wait…No I Don’t!”
