Busy tomorrow—that’s Thursday, July 17? Because I’ve got a little sumpin’ going on you might be interested in. Read the rest of this entry
Why? Because this is me:
I know, I know. Believe me, I know. Read the rest of this entry
Jeeves, fetch me my soapbox. I just read a very intriguing piece on The Daily Beast, “The Romantic Comedy Is Dead” by entertainment writer Andrew Romano, and I’m sorry, but I cannot let that shit stand. As a rom com writer (a novelist, not a screenwriter but hey, there’s always tomorrow), I call bullshit and must rebut. Read the rest of this entry
My, how time flies. In only 10 days, Picture This, the second in my small-town Marsden rom com series, the follow-up to Down on Love, publishes! Squee!
I’ve got some plans to mark the occasion, so check back here in a few for all the details!
In the meantime, you can preorder Picture This here!
I’ve been tagged by the wonderful author Tracy Krimmer to participate in the Very Inspiring Blogger Award/Tour! That means I get to share seven interesting things you might not know about me. At least, I hope they’re interesting.
But, you know, while authors put all sorts of exciting adventures in their books, in reality they’re sitting around in their pajamas with their hair sticking up in all directions, drinking coffee and freaking out about their sales numbers and whether anybody’s going to notice how badly spackled-over that most recent gaping plot hole is.
Still, this is my best effort. If these facts are boring as *#&!, give me a verbal smack upside the head in the comments, and I’ll try to come up with truly intriguing bits of information, okay? Okay. Here we go… Read the rest of this entry
Here we go again. In just about four weeks, my fourth book will be released. It’s called Picture This, and it’s the second in my small-town rom com series, following Down on Love, which came out last November. When I wrote Down on Love, I didn’t think of it as anything more than a standalone. After I turned in the final draft, my editor at Kensington asked if I would make it a series, with one of the minor characters— Celia Marshall, the hero’s ex-girlfriend—as the main character.
Oh dear. Read the rest of this entry
Hey, you’ve gotta break a few eggs to make that fabulous flan, right? Okay, I might be kidding myself, but that’s my theory on why my messy process actually produces books. In any case, welcome to the Writing Process Blog Hop! I was tagged by Lori Schafer last week (read her entry here) and I’ll tag another author at the end of this post.
Want to know how and why I write? Put on your gaiters and let’s wade in! Read the rest of this entry
Seriously, I often feel like poor shaggy-haired, sick-heroine-tending, grilled-cheese-making Mason gets overlooked in my…oeuvre (should I have included a pretension alert before I used that word? oh well—too late), so it’s wonderful to see one of my favorite heroes get some love.
Yeppers, only $1.99 for a couple of weeks, all e-formats—what’s not to love?
Once upon a time, I wrote a little rom com called Down on Love. It’s the story of a cranky, unlucky-in-love blogger named George (Georgiana) and her new relationship with her old high school crush, Casey, and I set it in a small town just for giggles. When I was done, my editor asked if I’d make it a series.
I hadn’t planned on it, but it sounded like an interesting prospect. And so…here’s the second book in what is now the Marsden series!
