The last Bandita…

“Build it…and they will come”, this quote from one of my favorite movies, A Field of Dreams, always makes me think of the Romance Bandits. May, 2007 … a group of very nervous new authors stepped onto the web. We’d banded together to try and make our mark on the world. We were going to start a blog. What if no one read us?

The Banditas have been saying goodbye, so long, farewell all month long to our devoted and faithful readers, even though we know the Banditas aren’t going too far away from social media.  We’ll be here on the blog telling you about our news and contests, releases and special offers, as well

Southern Insanity

I’ve lived my entire life in the American South.  My mother’s family had been here for generations before I was born.  So I’m familiar with southern eccentricities.  I don’t know that we have more of them than any other region, but I do think we’re more open about them.
