Here I am on Easter Sunday, having just returned from my annual family ski vacation to Big Sky, Montana, and I’m thinking about all the things I am grateful for. I’d like to take one “blog post worth” of space here to thank several people and organizations for their support!
Thanks to Cheryl Yeko for hosting me on her site. Cheryl is a fellow “Northerner” (she’s from WI, I’m from MN) who specializes in fast-paced romantic suspense with protective Alpha men and strong heroines. She keeps busy with her writing groups and as an acquisitions editor for Soul Mate Publishing. Check out Cheryl’s newest novel, Abducting Casey, which will be released in June!
I was interviewed by Taylor Reynolds, whom I met through a Romance Writers group for military veterans. She spent five years in the Army as an Arabic linguist, which has afforded her scads of plot and scene ideas (much as my five years as an Army paramedic have for me). She enjoys delicious food, sarcasm and learning, happily combining them into “vacations” around the globe. She is currently hard at work in a NanoWriMo “Camp” to finishe the novel she started in November.
Norm at East Coast Biker has been on the cutting edge of digital magazines for as long as I’ve known him (which I think is about five years). In his March issue, he put together a full-page spread about the Cool Rider music video AND the Cool Rider Project including the free novel excerpts for Take Two. Check it out on page 30!
Julie Kenner writes a range in a range of genres, including sexy and quirky romances, young adult novels, chick lit suspense and paranormal mommy lit, so it was especially fun to be the focus of her blog for a day. Her foray into “mommy lit,” Carpe Demon: Adventures of a Demon-Hunting Soccer Mom, is even in development as a feature film! Check out her most recent release, Release Me (pun intended)!
Thanks to Zoe Dawson for hosting me on her site this month. Zoe is the alter ego of multi-published, bestselling author Karen Anders. Zoe writes romance with no formulas and no rules. It’s all about the happily ever afters. Even with numerous books under her belt, she can’t wait for that next idea, that next exquisite sentence and, of course, the next hero and heroine who fall in love.
When her alter ego is not creating CG Art for film and TV, Kara Ashley writes SciFi, Fantasy and Paranormal romances, her two plump kitties (aka critics) purring at her side. Kara finds mornings “a bit stiff” but in the evenings her creative veins pump wicked sap that fuels her thoughts and stories, especially when accompanied by a full moon and couple of Red Bull chasers. Kara had some unusual, fun questions for me (see ’em here).
