Censorship or Discrimination in Publishing: What's Really Going On?

We woke up this morning to discover that the entire Seduced Saga and Kiss Me in Paris have been pulled from Kobo during a company-wide sweep in which they unpublished all books that had been uploaded through Draft2Digital, among other places. At this point, we haven't been told directly WHY Kobo unpublished EVERYTHING from EVERYWHERE, [...]

Tell us your epic love story and enter to w*n a signed copy of Kiss Me in Paris!

I'm a big believer in happily ever afters and true love. If you're a fan of mine, you likely already know that! When I moved from writing young adult novels with romance on the side, to new adult novels with romance as the main course, I had no idea how much fun it would be [...]

A Gathering of Tales: The launch of a short story subscription experience!

I first fell in love with short stories after reading Neil Gaiman's short story collections Fragile Things and Smoke and Mirrors. (If you haven't read them, I strongly suggest you do! Mad genius, I tell you!) In the last few years, I've been writing more short stories. Several went into my first book, Bits of [...]

A happily ever after inspired by real life plus FREE books!

Today my parents celebrated their 33rd wedding anniversary. The story of how they met had always captured my imagination, and the love they have shared over the last 33 years has inspired me to keep believing in love even when love let me down in the past. They are the reason I write about happily [...]

Fast, Free and Flawless: Readers Can't Have it All

The nature of the publishing industry is in a constant state of flux, which is awesome for writers in many ways. It means we have more options than ever for getting our work published. But, there are also downsides. Lately, I'm seeing more and more reviews (on a variety of books on Amazon) where readers [...]

Are Romance Novels Realistic? One Romance Author's Take

Boy gets girl. Boy loses girl. Boy gets girl back. My dad explained the mechanics of this popular plot device to me when I was a kid. He said every movie ever made followed it. While I'm sure that's not true of EVERY movie (The Hobbit?), it's pretty much true of every romance novel. So [...]

The post where we celebrate 1,000 adds for SEDUCED BY INNOCENCE on Goodreads and I give away a rose pendant!

When I announced that I would give away a custom made, hand painted rose pendant designed by Stephanie Mayfield exclusively for the Seduced Saga, I never expected my fans to get so excited and work so hard to make it happen. I worried initially that maybe I set the bar too high, but no, I [...]

What Women Want: A Must-Read For Men!

Back in 2000 (can you believe that was 13 freaking YEARS ago??), Mel Gibson and Helen Hunt co-starred in a romantic comedy where he gained the ability to read women's thoughts in "What Women Want". Comedy ensued as this soon-to-be-reformed chauvinist tried to woo his way into her pants, and her job, only [...]
