Now, What’s the Postman’s Name Again?

As my Eternity Springs world grows, new characters come to town, new dogs are acquired, and new buildings are built. It’s a challenge to keep them all straight... I realized I needed a system to keep track of their ages, names, occupations, and other things that make up who they are.

Happy Book Birthday ~ DREAMWEAVER TRAIL by Emily March is Here

Happy Book Birthday to Emily March and her next book in the Eternity Springs series. Over the Memorial Day weekend we drove through many a small town on our way to our destination and the thing I love about small towns is that there is always something quaint and new and in Emily’s new book, Dreamweaver Trail, this also holds true. This is Emily’s 9th book in her Eternity Springs series and the question we asked her to answer for us today, on her book’s birthday, is what does she like most about being a writer . . . . . enjoy!!
Readers often ask me what I like best about being a writer. Going to work in my sleep shirt ranks right up there. Being able to work anywhere I can charge… Continue

You’re seeing it here first: Below you’ll find the trailer for MIRACLE ROAD, Emily March’s latest novel set in the endearing town of Eternity Springs. After tragedy strikes his team, college basketball coach Lucca Romano arrives in the haven of Eternity Springs to reassess his life.

Guest Post from Emily March: Every once in a while, a girl needs to fantasize about James Bond.

When I started writing my Eternity Springs series, I set out to write characters who readers feel like they know, characters they’d like to have as friends in real life. Based on reader mail and social media posts, I succeeded. The Callahans, the Timberlakes, the Murphys, and the Raffertys are next-door neighbor kind of people–nice, decent people with ordinary lives and everyday problems. Jack Davenport, the hero in NIGHTINGALE WAY, is different. Jack is the mystery man of Eternity Springs, a character who is larger than life. He’s wealthy, secretive, tall, dark and dangerous—one of those characters who is simply fun to write. Jack is a CIA operative, a spy, a secret agent man. See, every once in a while, a girl needs to fantasize about James Bond.

The new year – what will it bring you?
By Cassandra Carr

The New Year is here, and that means it’s time to once again assess your life. I’m not a big resolution maker, but I do have goals. They morph and change throughout the year depending on circumstances, but they’re always in the back of my mind. These goals can be anything from finishing a book to cleaning out my closets to teaching my daughter to tie her shoes. I’m not real formal about my goals. I don’t write them down. I don’t quantify them as one-year, five-year, and ten-year goals. But I have them. What are some of my goals? Writing-wise, I’d like to put five or six books out in 2012. Family-wise, I want to get my daughter toilet-trained, an effort she’s… Continue

Romantic Disabilities, who wrote them + Giveaway!

Those of you that know me know that I am a HUGE Catherine Anderson fan — I’m a HUGE fan of emotional romance — real life situations.
  • Phantom Waltz the heroine is wheelchair bound.
  • My Sunshine the heroine lost her ability to speak.
  • Blue Skies the heroine has a visual impairment.
  • In so many of Catherine’s stories she shows the reader how we can overcome life’s obstacles & that we are more than just what our name tag says, or the uniform we wear, or how others choose to define us. Can you tell I just love this stuff? One of my ULTIMATE favorites was Jennifer Ashley’s – The Madness of Lord Ian MacKenzie - this is one you all must read: It was whispered all through London Society that Ian Mackenzie was mad, that Continue

    Sue’s Review – The Demon Lover, by Juliet Dark + 5 Book Giveaway!!

    I gasped, or tried to. My mouth opened, but I couldn’t draw breath. His lips, pearly wet, parted and he blew into my mouth. My lungs expanded beneath his weight. When I exhaled he sucked my breath in and his weight turned from cold marble into warm living flesh. Since accepting a teaching position at remote Fairwick College in upstate New York, Callie McFay has experienced the same disturbingly erotic dream every night: A mist enters her bedroom, then takes the shape of a virile, seductive stranger who proceeds to ravish her in the most toe-curling, wholly satisfying ways possible. Perhaps these dreams are the result of her having written the bestselling book The Sex Lives of Demon Lovers. Callie’s lifelong passion is the intersection of lurid fairy tales and Gothic literature—which is why Continue

    It’s the little things…
    By Cassandra Carr It’s December, and that means the holidays, no matter what religion you do (or don’t) practice. The holidays can pass by in a blur of buying, baking, and booking – from house to house or party to party – or they can be a time for quiet reflection on life’s blessings. I understand how hard it is to get everything done but still take time to appreciate the season. After all, I have a child and both sides of my family live in the area, but I do what I can. During the holidays, it’s the little things that matter – the smile on your child’s face when you let her help with cookie decorating, the thank you from the bell ringer when you throw some spare change… Continue

    Guilty Pleasures Plus Giveaway!!

    Guilty Pleasure Reads…Prepare to Defend Yourself… Even If You Don’t Have To In last month’s blog I surprised myself by responding to a commenter by saying “I’ll admit…” I’ll admit? As if I perhaps shouldn’t?? Because what? Because of what someone might say or think? I unashamedly read romances, but yet I felt I had to qualify my response in order to make myself feel less guilty… I’ll say it again; I’m a Twilight addict, a Twihard. As in I read and enjoy rereading the Twilight Saga. All of them. Even Breaking Dawn… Why did I feel this way? I’ve always been able to freely admit I love to read romances. I used to have discussions with my first book store manager. He would ask me, “You’re so smart. Why do you read romances?” Yes,… Continue

    Sports & Romance, Do They Mix? + Giveaway!

    I have never been a big fan of Sports but put it together with romance and it becomes a win – win situation for me. My first sports romance book just happened to be by one of my favorite authors ever so I wanted to pick up her back list and it doing so, I got to read Slow Heat by Jill Shalvis. It was light, funny and gave you a great look into the world of baseball. But it didn’t stop there. I went on the kick of my life in trying to find some more amazing sports romance books by some really wonderful authors. Not all sports romance books are light and funny but they can be intense and erotic too. After reading The Perfect Play by Jaci Burton I was in aww.… Continue
