GOING HOME

by Jo Robertson About ten years ago on Fathers Day our seven children picked out individual rose bushes and planted them in a row by the fence in our back yard. At the time my youngest son had distanced himself from the family so the spot for his bush remained empty, a sad reminder that one of the seven was missing. Recently that son returned, bought a lovely white rose bush with a blush of pink on the petals, dug a hole and planted the flowers near the other six. Thomas Wolfe said, “You can’t go home again,” but I’m

Free Reads

by Suzanne We’ve had a new addition to our family. A brand new baby boy! He’s as cute as his mother and father, and as bald as his grandfather! (That’s him over there—>) Needless to say, I had to put blogging, writing and reading on hold for a bit. Since I have what my husband calls, “the ultimate Grandma job”. And he’s right. I’m lucky in that I have the ability to chose my daughters’ doctors, hospitals, nurses AND I get to be in the delivery room for the birth of everyone of my grandchildren. Now, before you think I

Demon Hunting in the Lair!

by Anna Campbell We love debut authors here in the lair and I’m delighted to introduce a very talented new author who I met for an uproarious lunch a couple of RWAs ago (she’s a friend of Louisa’s – should be recommendation enough, huh?). Lexi’s huge fun in person so I wasn’t remotely surprised when I heard she’d translated that funny, snarky humor into a three-book deal with Kensington Brava. You can find out more about Lexi at her website: www.lexigeorge.com Here’s the blurb for DEMON HUNTING IN DIXIE which is out this month: A warrior, a demon, and the

Closing a Circle

by Nancy On the surface, this looks like every other summer vacation. The boy finished school last week and is now upstairs noodling on his guitar, I’m on the computer writing this blog, and the dh is at school, most likely in a meeting. But it isn’t like every other summer vacation. Under that placid surface, a seismic shift has occurred. The boy graduated from high school. He “finished” it in the truest sense of the word. Many of you have seen your children take that walk across the stage, some of you more than once. You know what it’s

The Most Comfortable Bed in the World

by Kate Carlisle Please don’t think I’m bragging when I tell you this. I’ve traveled a lot, and through my travels I have discovered that The Most Comfortable Bed in the World is at my house. In my bedroom. I don’t mean to rub it in or make you jealous. I’m simply stating proven, scientific fact. As you all know, I was on book tour recently, promoting MURDER UNDER COVER. I traveled to Maryland, Pennsylvania, Arizona, and North Carolina, and I had an amazing time. I even got some face-to-face with a couple of Banditas and Buddies. (*waving wildly at

Many Genres, One Craft

By KJ Howe I had the pleasure of attending Seton Hill University while completing my Master’s in Popular Fiction, and, recently, a large group of graduates have contributed to a fabulous book about the craft of writing. MANY GENRES, ONE CRAFT is a compilation of craft articles from graduates of Seton Hill, and it was edited by the talented Heidi Ruby Miller and Mike Arnzen. I’m proud to be part of such an exciting project, and I thought I’d introduce a few of the romance contributors to our Romance Bandits crew. First, I’d like to introduce the wonderful Dana Marton

To Virgin or not to Virgin

by Donna MacMeans I have a secret. I have to admit I’m a little bit nervous about my August release. You see in all my other books, the heroine has been a virgin. This isn’t a shocker as many, if not most, historicals utilize a virginal heroine. There’s a reason for this. Sex was a lot riskier in the nineteenth century (and earlier). It came with consequences beyond that of the heart. This was a time when property passed from father to son – and if that son wasn’t really his son – well that might prove problematic. While a
