Ruthie’s Reality: Interview with Elise Sax + Giveaway!

Welcome back to Ruthie’s Reality, chickens! Today author Elise Sax agreed to chat with me about her debut novel, An Affair To Dismember, which releases on January 29. If you like Janet Evanovich or are generally a fan of first-person heroines who struggle to keep their act together but nonetheless manage to attract the attention of various hunky men–and let’s face it, the appeal of this particular scenario is difficult to resist–you’ll want to check out this book.
Welcome, Elise! Okay, let’s start off with a tough question: the heroine of your Matchmaker Series, Gladie Burger, has been compared to Stephanie Plum — but I can’t help but note the similarities between hapless, disorganized Gladie and the official Elise Sax author photo.

A Touch of Humor Makes the Medicine Go Down! by Jennifer Probst

Thanks Jennifer for this awesome post – I too am finding the need for more wit & fun in my reading – Happy Romance! I love humor in my romance. Not forced, contrived humor where I feel like the author tried too hard. Real deep in the bones, giggly funny that makes a scene come alive. Or that tiny surprise when a bit of dialogue fits in and the reader gets a glimpse of the hero’s sardonic wit, or the lighthearted perspective of the heroine. Humor in romance does not have to be Three Stooges zany. Threading one line of fun within a scene can lighten up the angst and give the reader a breather.
