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…

Launch Day Thank You!

My second Writer’s Room book baby, Photographed in the Writer’s Room, was finally released into the wild on February 14, 2021, otherwise known as Valentine’s Day (because: OF COURSE it was! It’s a romcom). It was just as fun and exciting and cool as I had hoped! I had sooooo many great folks who helped…

It’s here. It’s finally here. Cover reveal and release date announcement!

Let me start by apologizing for two things: first, this has taken so much longer than I ever could have guessed to release, (between moving and a pandemic and honestly just unexpected delays, I never in a million years would have guessed that book two would take just shy of a million years to release);…

Finding Great Books… And Laughing at Myself

If you read my last blog (it’s right here), then you know that I committed to posting reviews on both Goodreads and Amazon of all books that I’ve read. I think I meant ever, but then in my mind revised it to “recently”. Um, even that might have been hyper-ambitious. I’m on Day 18 (just…

Making moves, not announcements. But, also, an announcement.

I have an announcement. (It’s at the bottom of the blog, if you’re too impatient to wait for it!) But before I make the announcement, I wanted to tell you why I’m making the announcement. I learned something new today. Well, two somethings new. (Maybe it’s two new somethings? Whatever…) Here is what I learned: 1.)…

How About a Hug?

One of the things I miss most since quarantine started is hugs. Like, the unrestrained, never-awkward kind between friends that you’ve known absolutely forever. The quick ones that accompany cheek kisses with new acquaintances that you’re sure will be in your life well past cocktail hour. The silly ones that your neighbor’s toddler gives you,…
