Erotica Author Opal Carew Talks Tantra

BY admin, JULY 01, 2010 | PERMALINK
  Erotica Author Opal Carew on the sexual art of Tantra and how it inspired her new novel Bliss.

I write about sex. Hot, steamy, erotic sex. But more than that, I write about people. People who change and grow. People who fall in love and build a future together.

So how do I do that with hot sex scenes? Showing people being together in the most intimate of ways, reveals a lot about them. Their vulnerabilities, their most secret desires, their hopes, their fears. And when I put my heroine in an intimate situation with a man, or men, especially in a situation that pushes her boundaries, then she gets to know a lot about herself. Often she finds out things she doesn’t want to know, or face. But face them she does, and that makes her stronger.

A Day In The Life Of An RT Intern

BY admin, JUNE 30, 2010 | PERMALINK

Lizzie Poteet, one of RT's two summer interns, reflects on her first major assignment: An RT exclusive author interview with Heather Graham.

It was my second day of work in the big, bad New York City and I was a little overwhelmed. After all, New York is a long way from my home in the suburbs of Nashville -- far geographically, culturally and mentally. I’m confused by the subway system, the New York City streets and I still can’t get a handle on the difference between uptown and downtown. Thankfully, I had somehow managed to find the RT BOOK REVIEWS office in Brooklyn with a minimum of confusion and wrong turns and now faced my second day of my first internship.

No pressure, it’s just an internship at My Dream Job.

Lisa Gardner Top Picks Giveaway

BY admin, JUNE 30, 2010 | PERMALINK

Author Lisa Gardner's two most recent mysteries were both awarded RT Top Picks!

The stakes were high for Gardner's follow-up to The Neighbor, a release that prompted the rave review "Master storyteller Gardner really outdoes herself with her latest puzzler." But, Gardner pulls out all the stops for her new summer suspense, Live To Tell. It is an "electrifying tale" as a detective, a nurse, and the mother of a mentally disturbed child race to discover the truth behind a murder/suicide that is more than it appears.

Comic Books - There Is An App For That

BY Morgan Doremus, JUNE 29, 2010 | PERMALINK
 

DC Comics launched an app last week that makes its comics available for the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch. Prices range from free to $2.99 per issue and digital comics will be released the same day as print versions. Payment is quick and easy as the user makes purchases through their iTunes account.

This weekend I downloaded the app and within two minutes was looking over a variety of DC comics. What did I find? All of the usual DC fare including Superman, Jonah Hex, Justice League, Green Lantern and many more. The app also includes a section for featured comics, one for free reads and another for new releases. (I also really liked the browse feature which allowed me to search the comic database by series, genre, creator, imprint or storylines.)
