Mountains or Beach?

by Jeanne Pickering Adams You’ve all heard people say it, I know I have. It’s either “I love the beach!” or “Ugh, I hate the beach, let’s go to the mountains.” It seems that everyone has their favorite and the opposite is to be vilified and despised. I’m a mountain girl, through and through. Alas, I’m currently at the beach. Among the many reasons I’m not a “beach girl” are that I’m fair skinned and burn easily, and the heat (WHY are we here in late July?) just disables me for days if I stay out too long and, last

High School and Other Painful Pursuits

Someone recently began a discussion arc on the six- packers’ loop about being a geek in high school. Many banditas chimed in, confessing to geek-hoodness, listing clubs they were in or activities they had joined in high school. We have a significant number of band and choir geeks, Latin Club geeks (raising my hand here), speech and drama geeks, National Honor Society geeks, and student government geeks.Most banditas confessed to being good students. I’m not surprised because writers by default must be good readers, lovers of the written word, and shapers of gripping characters and the worlds they occupy. They

Celebrating the Steps

by Tawny Weber We’ve Bandita’s have had a lot to celebrate lately. Golden Heart wins & finals, Contest successes, and the big whohoooo’s — Sales! I’m going to guess there have been celebrations for those biggies. I used to go out to dinner and have a margarita for every contest win, I kept all my certificates from finals and scrapbooked them (as well as my GH ribbons for each final, along with a picture of the big screen), and not only did I have a huge family celebration when I sold (complete with a trip to Build A Bear Workshop…

RARE BOOKS

By Suzanne WelshRecently I made two discoveries that have thrilled me both as a reader and a book collector. For years I’ve been searching for a copy of a book I read in my early high school years. It’s titled “Black Horse Tavern”, by Janet Louise Roberts. I adored this book. I’m a re-reader—meaning that if a book captures me, I’ll happily read it over and over and over again. That’s the reason I have two copies of Julie Garwood’s “Saving Grace”. So when I had my original copy of “Black Horse Tavern”, I literally wore it out. It’s a

Guest Blogger Tina Ferraro Buzzes About YA and MORE!

posted by Aunty Cindy Your old Aunty has been writer-buddies with the WONDERFUL Tina Ferraro for *ahem* some years now. Matter of fact, Tina and I were ‘roomies’ at RWA National in Reno in 2005. Tina got to wear her pink First Sale Ribbon and Aunty introduced her to the addictive TV series “Lost.” Whereupon we immediately became perpetual fans of our mutual lust object Sawyer/Josh Holloway. But I digress… Tina’s young adult novel, “Top Ten Uses for an Unworn Prom Dress” came out earlier this year to rave reviews. Her next YA novel, “How to Hook a Hottie” will

A writer’s dream come true

By Trish Milburn Yesterday morning at around 10:20, while sleeping because I was suffering from a sinus infection and a fever, I got The Call. My agent called to tell me I’d sold my first two books, young adult titles, to Razorbill, an imprint of Penguin. How did this fabulous event come about? Here’s the skinny. Once upon a time in a galaxy far, far away… Okay, so it was really the 1990s, and I was in Kentucky, but whatever. I began writing my first romance manuscript when I was in college at good ol’ Murray State University in Western

Some Travellers’ Tales from Anna Campbell

Hi Banditas and Buddies! Just popping in to say that my good friend Nicola Cornick has put up a diary of our trip around the stately homes of the West Country (currently being inundated!) on her website, if you want to check it out. Regency Writers On the Loose! Anna (who couldn’t possibly have eaten that many cream teas. Um, just looked in the mirror, maybe I did!)
