The Golden Rooster Family Reunion

Ah! What’s this? A postmark from St. Poulet? A missive from my sainted maman, no doubt. The poor chicken. She worries so. I am the only of her chicks to pursue life on such a—how shall we say?—grand scale. Dancing along the knife edge of danger is not for everyone, oui? But it must come as a particular shock when held against the lives chosen by that clutch of spectacular dullards with whom I was hatched. So, alors, I shall read her little letter then compose a reply which shall put her pretty head at ease.My dearest son,Ah, you see?

Book Binge

by Susan Sey I recently tried to read Little Women to my 6 year old. She’s a precocious reader, & while completely capable of reading the book herself, I didn’t want to hand over the hard-backed copy my mom gave me when I was a girl. As my daughter routinely loves the covers right off books, I didn’t want her grubby little paws on my beloved copy just yet. I decided to read it to her myself. As it turns out, Little Women–while a wonderful story–is really….dense. The story telling is old-fashioned & detailed. The author doesn’t just mention that

This Is Your Life…

by SuzanneIt’s amazing the things we can learn from other people’s lives. That’s probably one of the reasons I love to read biographies. Not the flashy, tell all, ghost-writer books many celebs get paid outrageous amounts for doing little work. No, I prefer the old kind of biographies that look at the total life of a person, the good, the bad, the ugly…(oh wait, that was a movie). But you know what I mean, the kind of book that lets me see how this person lived and how they triumphed or failed in adversity, maybe how they fit into history.

His Forever Love

by Nancy Today we welcome back Bellebooks and Steeple Hill author Missy Tippens. Her second release, His Forever Love, is out this month! She’s here to celebrate and to tell us a little about the book. Welcome back, Missy! Many authors wrestle with that second book. Was His Forever Love a struggle for you? I didn’t so much wrestle with the book, but wrestle with myself to produce another book. It took me a while to make the second sale. I highly recommend writing and writing before selling (don’t keep working on the same old book). That way you have

On the Road with the GR

by Donna MacMeans Ah Spring – also known as conference season. The Golden Rooster and I took to the road to travel the opposite ends of Ohio in pursuit of writer and reader events. No plane this time, just an open window with the GR’s red comb flapping in the wind. Our first stop was the Cleveland Rocks conference., sponsored by the Northeast Ohio chapter of Romance Writers of America (NEORWA). Lori Wilde led an intimate discussion about developing high concept – undoubtably inspired by the rooster’s high flirtacious antics. Everyone wanted to pose with the rooster! Here’s a few
