When Sex is WORTH THE WEIGHT

I’m probably the only woman in America who skimmed past the sex scenes in Fifty Shades of Grey.  It’s not that I’m a prude.  I don’t hide under a pillow when Hannah walks around naked on Girls, or fast forward Sooki having sex with Bill, Eric, or that creepy Warlow on True Blood.  Watching a sex scene on TV doesn’t seem as voyeuristic as reading one when the bedroom door stays open in a novel. After one round of submissions for Worth the Weight with no luck, my agent told me I should spice up my G rated rom-com since Fifty Shades of Grey had amped up the heat in the romance industry. “No whips and chains.”  I said.  “Or bondage.  I’m definitely not adding bondage.” My agent laughed and told me no one was … Continued

Playlist and Giveaway: SEX AND THE SINGLE VAMP

When I’m not writing romance (or working the EDJ, loving my hubby and kiddos) I sing in a band.  You never know what wedding or bar mitzvah you might attend and hear me belting out covers of popular songs. So, it will come as no surprise that I use music in the creation of my story.  I have a playlist for every story before I put one word on the paper and when I hit “play”, I am immediately drawn into that world. I’m really not sure if I could write without one and I’m too chicken to try it out. So, I thought I would share my Top Five favorite songs from the playlist for SEX & THE SINGLE VAMP:  Gravity by Sara Bareilles: This song gets me from the first piano chords, the … Continued

Join #1 New York Times  bestselling author Susan Wiggs as she interviews her long-time pal, another bestselling author from the Pacific Northwest, Sheila Roberts, about Sheila’s newest novel, THE COTTAGE ON JUNIPER RIDGE. Susan: I remember when you first began writing your Life in Icicle Falls series. It all started with BETTER THAN CHOCOLATE, a story about a small mountain town in our lovely state of Washington having some economic struggles and a woman trying to save the family’s chocolate factory. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that chocolate factored into the story. Sheila: You know me—a died-in-the-candy-wrapper chocoholic (like you!) Susan: It’s one of the many things we have in common. Sheila: And I can remember you talking me through … Continued

Winner’s Announced: A little Scots anyone? Who doesn’t like a man in a kilt?

When my editor and I were discussing ideas for upcoming stories she asked me what I thought about writing something Scottish. I had to think about that for a moment. I’m not sure why because my favorite historical romances are Scottish based. And, really, who doesn’t like a man in a kilt, right? So I thought about it for a moment and I have to admit the amount of research I would have to do was a bit intimidating. I’ve never written anything Scottish before. I told Sue that I would definitely consider writing a Scottish historical romance—without a clue as to what I would actually write. And then, months later, a scene came to me, fully formed—woman holding a pistol on a pirate and demanding his help. I was intrigued—as was the pirate—and decided … Continued

Winners Announced – Happy Release Day to Mary Ann Rivers – Celebrate LIVE with 5 book #Giveaway

A long time ago I was driving around in my green Volvo station wagon in Columbus, Ohio. There are ten million stories that could start this way, but the story born that rainy morning would become an entire book, the first book of a series of books, and I would write a blog post about this book on Random House’s romance blog and people everywhere would read it and love it or hate and talk about it and buy it for themselves or their sisters, meanwhile, I would be little embarrassed but also, so glad and happy and proud. I am getting ahead of this story.

Winners Announced: Merry Christmas, everyone! Guest Post from Marquita Valentine + Giveaway

Merry Christmas, everyone! I’m so happy to be back at Romance @ Random to hang out with y’all. Big thanks to Sue for letting me come on here to share what keeps me warm, a big multi-author sale, and a GINORMOUS giveaway! Normally, I’m the most hot-blooded person on the planet. In the summertime, I sleep in the least amount of clothing I can get away with, on top of the covers, with the ceiling fan at full blast, and the a/c at minus twenty. Seriously. I’ve been this way since I was itty-bitty. I blame my mother for this, and her mother as well. Unfortunately for Hot Builder aka the husband, our children inherited this trait and are as hot-blooded as I am. However, something happens to my body once winter hits—and yeah, I … Continued

Winners Announced: Getting Out Of Dodge by Sally Eggert + 3 book #Giveaway!!

When we meet Josie, the main character of my debut novel, In the Dark, she is doing her best to live under the radar. She has given up the things most of us spend our whole lives working for, and taken a dead-end job, and a tiny, luxury-free apartment. She’s sleeping with a guy she doesn’t expect to be there for her, and who she is sure will never make a commitment to her. What in the world would prompt anyone to do all of these things? In Josie’s case, the trigger was simple and extreme. She suffered a major trauma, both physically and mentally and, in the process, found out the hard way that the Mr. Right she had been engaged to couldn’t be counted on to put her first, even when her life … Continued
