Choosy readers choose…

If you’re like me, your “to be read” list (#tbr) is so long you have no hope of getting to all of them in this lifetime. And, it’s not as if it really is just one list… there are audio books and ebooks and paperbacks and, of course the hardback copies. Just between us, though,…

Help Me Help You

“How can I support you?” It’s a question often asked by friends, family, and all the other folks who don’t want to necessarily buy another book. Maybe you’ve have already purchased my latest book, or maybe you can’t just can’t swing it right now. I’ve found that it’s nice to have a ready answer for…

Critical Review

I don’t know if it’s a universal author experience, but there is nothing I get more hyped about than seeing my author friends get the praise, the sales and the reviews that they deserve. It’s the actual best! But, what about when they get those horrid, painful one-star reviews? (You can read what I think…

Voyeuristic Reading, or Creating Compassion

Toward the end of 2022, I found myself on a long car ride by myself. Road-trips aren’t new in my family, but this was the first time in a very long time that I’d done one solo. There was no one to ask me to stop for drinks or restroom breaks. No one else commandeered…

Furry friends to the rescue.

When everything on my social media and news feeds tells me the world is burning down around us, I have one go-to trick that never fails to recharge my batteries, lift my spirits, and remind me of good things: memes and videos of baby animals. And, thank goodness I’m not not alone. The backbone of…

What is it about the ‘Ship?

If you’re here, I’m going to assume you read romance novels or woman’s fiction, (aka chic lit) or that you at least watch romcoms. And, if you do, then you probably also have at least one fictional pairing that you are a super fan of… otherwise known as “shipping.”   Fun fact, in 2015, Business Insider…

It’s always time to laugh.

Recently in my monthly newsletter (if we’re not already besties, subscribe here. I always send links to lots of free books, give my sneak peeks, and offer subscriber-only content), I asked my readers to let me know what they thought of about half a dozen different books, mostly from the romcom genre. One was an…

Giving Characters… Character

(This originally appeared as a guest post for Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers, a blog to “feed your need to read”. There, you can find book tours, reviews, give aways, and occasionally, guest bloggers, like me!) One of the most entertaining parts of writing fiction is being able to invent new people out of thin air……

Writing About Writers

(This originally appeared as a Guest Post on Everywhere And Nowhere. This fun blog is hosted by Kate who self-describes as “[a] reader, a reviewer, a composer of language, a listener of podcasts, a tasty treat maker, a procrastinator, a lady of ink, a purveyor of items with lenses.” Poke around her blog a bit —…

A little escapism. A little laughter. A little love.

 (This originally appeared in April as a Guest Post on Lisa’s Reading. She hosts a beautiful book blog that shares book reviews for both adults and children, with a wonderful newsletter roundup that highlights giveaways and blog tours.) It’s not often that I am at a loss for words. Perhaps that’s one of the benefits of…
