LAUNCH PARTY!!!!!! Deadly Little Secrets is coming in September!

By Jeanne Adams So, maybe I’m jumping the gun a bit but…. DEADLY LITTLE SECRETS is headed for a store near you SEPTEMBER 7th!!And now that I have your attention by putting in something from TWILIGHT (A September calendar page, so it DOES apply!), I’ll tell you about DEADLY LITTLE SECRETS…..

How’s that for vague? Ha! It was interesting to research the book, discover

Curmudgeon Rant

by Jo Robertson Normally, I’m a happy, cheerful person. I rarely wake up grumpy (unless I’m sick) and I’m generally given to optimistic greetings and lots of pleasant chatter. Sadly, I live with two men who stumble from bed with a hangover kind of cloud hovering around their heads. Grumpy, grumpy, grumpy. And neither one drinks! I’ve learned not to speak to them until it’s nearly noon. Neither drinks coffee so I don’t even have that luxury to magically transform them into something approaching normal. Now, don’t get me wrong. I’m a half-empty sort of gal. A realist, a skeptic,

Happy Birthday To Me!

by Susan Sey Okay, this is going to be a short one because a) I’m totally jetlagged and b) it’s my birthday. I’m completely jet lagged because my husband & I just returned less than 12 hours ago from a 10th anniversary trip to Hawaii (which was INCREDIBLE–I recommend Kauai without reservation), but what I really want to talk about is the birthday thing. And, yeah, I really do want to talk about it. I know some women like to stop having birthdays once they hit thirty or so but I’m 38, in case anybody’s curious. Looking 40 riiiiiiight in

Book Pimping

by Suzanne Okay, a little known secret…well maybe a widely known fact among the Bandits and my friends…I AM A BOOK PIMP. Yep. Can’t seem to help it. If I read a great book, I want EVERYONE  I’ve ever seen holding a book, picking up my new “find” and reading it.  Here’s sort of how the conversation goes: Me, “I just read the most incredible book.”My mark, “Really? What?”Me, leaning closer with just a hint of a smile, “Money, Honey by Susan Sey. OMG, couldn’t put it down!”Interested victim, “Really? I’d love one of those kind of books. What’s it

Vicarious Competence, or Things I Can’t Do

posted by Nancy Today Barbara Monajem joins us to celebrate the release of her second book, Tastes of Love and Evil. One of the cool things about writing books is making your characters do things you can’t. In my first paranormal romance, Sunrise in a Garden of Love & Evil, the heroine is a landscaper. The only things I can grow successfully are grass (by not mowing it) and wisteria (which is actually a demon in disguise and needs no help at all). It was fun writing about someone who could not only garden, but conquer. 🙂 For my new

The Year of Lasts

by Nancy In just a week, we’ll load up the car, drive to Atlanta, and enthusiastically dive into the myriad aspects of DragonCon as a family unit. A year from next week, we’ll load up the car, drive somewhere we don’t yet know, and take the boy to college, dividing our family unit as he steps into adulthood. In between, there’ll be a lot of “last” events for the three of us. This is the first in a series of blogs about the transitions on the horizon. I’ve been going to DragonCon regularly for quite a few years. I always
