It’s Spooooooktacular!!!!

by Jeanne Adams, AKA The Halloween Maven Let me start by saying those immortal words…no not THOSE words…these words: HAPPY HALLOWEEEEEEEEN!!!!!There, now that we have that out of the way, I want to talk about pumpkins. And Witches. Not more, you ask? Not warlocks, or mad scientists, or rubber-masked villains or superheroes? Nope. Pumpkins and Witches. Before I begin, however, I will be making a large disclaimer, note of excusement, proviso, etc. which says, in large letters: THIS IS NOT A POLITICAL BLOG post, nor should it be construed as such. Ahem. Now that we have that out of the

What Won’t You Do?

by Jo Robertson When I was a young mother, I visited my sister in northern Virginia. We stopped at a gas station to fill up and she asked if I would do the honors. I did so, got back in the car, and said, “I can show you how to fill up the tank if you don’t know how.” My sister is very petite. She’s barely five feet tall, but incredibly independent and rather ferocious when she wants to be. She looked hard at me and said, “Oh, Jo, I know how to fill up the gas tank. I just

Ghouls Just Wanna Have Fun

by Susan Sey I know it isn’t Halloween just yet but it’s the Friday before, which means it’s officially time to party like the undead. Now if you’re a kid this means the Weekend of Free Candy is upon you. Get out there & shake down the neighborhood, kiddoes! A word of advice, though? If you can shave, drive a car or appreciate an ironic costume, you’re too old to trick or treat. Same goes if you either a) want to go as a Naughty Nurse or b) have what it takes to fill out the costume. Time to move

Different Kind of Heroes and Heroines

by Suzanne I’m a romance novel addict. Everyone knows it. I don’t see a need to change or am in any need of an intervention. Nope, like myself just like this. But there is one thing I do get tired of. Perfection. Physical perfection. In either the hero or the heroine. Hero: Tall, dark, brooding, sexy. Maybe a bad boy with abs to die for. Maybe he has a sculpted face, with a scar down one side.Or maybe a cool, aloof once jilted blond rake, cynicism masks the pride he has in his own beauty, a male beauty that attracts

Dr. Nightmare

by Cassondra Murray I have a new hero. He came into my life only two weeks ago. Okay…I admit that I’ve never actually seen him. But he’s stunningly handsome, I just know it. His voice is so deep and resonant. He’s very low-maintenance. It does take him a little while to..you know…recharge. But really..what’s a small thing like that in a perfect relationship? Honestly, we were made for each other! I’ll never forget the moment we first met. He drove up my driveway in a big brown truck. Well…okay he didn’t drive up, exactly……he rode up the driveway. Oh, all

More of the Same but Different

by Nancy Many published authors have told me, “when you sell, be prepared to write more of the same but different.” The first time I heard this, it sounded really, seriously weird to me. “The same but different?” Isn’t that a contradiction in terms? Well, no. Not when I sat down and thought about it. That’s what I look for as a reader–something that will give me the SAME buzz but with a DIFFERENT plot. I’ve found that I get this from reading series. Or trilogies. I suppose I could blame the late J. R. R. Tolkien for my tendency
