Things At Which I Suck

by Susan SeyBrace yourselves. This could be a long list. Oh, fine. It’s New Year’s Eve. You probably have somewhere fabulous to be. I’ll give you the abridged version. I need to be snoozing on the couch by 9 p.m. anyway. Top Three Things At Which I Am Not Very Good: 1. Sales.2. Synopses3.

The Timeless Sandy Blair

Suz: MAC DUFF’S SECRET is the third time travel romance you’ve written. What is it about time travel romances that you like? Sandy: The possibility-the fantasy–of time travel fascinates me and I often find myself wondering how I’d react if thrown back or forward in time. Would I-or a particular character–be intimidated by the lack of modern conveniences or become inventive in an effort to reestablish creature comforts? (I.e. try to make toilet paper.) Would I be brave enough to confront injustice or those displaying prejudices we now find appalling? If my hero knew from a modern perspective that something

GIFTS AND AN ON-LINE BOOK

Giving presents is one of the best parts of Christmas for me. I usually start early thinking about each person I want to gift on my list of family and friends. Since my parents and sister live in Ohio, I know I need to have them finished first so I can mail their gifts off right after Thanksgiving. It‘s great fun to find unique gifts for my parents that they wouldn’t think to buy themselves. One year my husband brought home a Leatherman tool for my dad. It’s one of those ten tools in one thingys guys love. Well, Daddy

To Be Read

by Beth My To-Be-Read pile has somehow grown into a To-Be-Read hill. It’s gone from three separate piles (one romance, one nonfiction and one for non-romance fiction) to four piles (I went on a buying spree and had to make a pile for my paranormal YAs and urban fantasy books *g*) I know quite a few of you can relate to my multiplying books, or perhaps your own TBR piles are more like mountains. Either way, all I know is that at the beginning of 2009 I had a goal of reading more and keeping my TBR pile manageable. Well,

Winter Wonderland

by Nancy We had a gray Christmas, not a white one, with rain most of the day yesterday. Not quite the ambiance we’ve been trained to expect. As the dh said, “No one wrote a song dreaming of a wet Christmas.” And Charles Dickens didn’t write about rain in A Christmas Carol. We would’ve liked just a bit of the white stuff–a few flurries, perhaps, though the boy believes “snow when [he’s] out of school is wasted snow.” I imagine those of you looking at anything from multiple inches to a couple of feet of snow may wonder if I

Merry Christmas from the Romance Bandits!

by Kate ‘Tis Better to Give …Some of my favorite childhood memories are of waking up on Christmas morning and seeing the acre of presents spread out under the tree. I loved opening Christmas presents, and Santa Claus never disappointed. But now that I’m all grown up, I find it’s much more special and fun to watch others open their gifts. I love to see the looks on my friends and loved ones’ faces when they see what it is, when they look up at me with excitement and pure joy at the realization that I’ve managed to find the

Christmas Eve–Time to Party?

by KJ Howe With the holiday season upon us, our social calendars are filled with celebratory events for work, family, and friends. Hairdressers are double-booked, red lipstick flies off the shelves, and the stilettos and bling escape the back of our closets. It’s time to party! Back in the day, a party was just a party, but these days, themed parties are the way to go–the more outrageous, the better. For example, I recently attended a party where everything echoed the Academy Awards…yes, those two “Oscars” sandwiching me stood perfectly still on a stage for over two hours as people
