BY RT BOOK REVIEWS, MARCH 08, 2011 | PERMALINK

Out now is Lisa Gardner’s newest tale of suspense and danger Love You More. In this RT Top Pick! Gold, RT Senior Reviewer Jill M. Smith says the tale is “unbelievably gripping and clever, you won’t want to put it down until the final page!” Now we chat with Gardner for a special look at D.D. Warren’s latest investigation - a race to hunt down a killer and locate a missing child - and the author shares what fans can expect from this tale that brings back the man that this policewoman was forced to walk away from.

Love You More, finds PD Sgt. Det. D.D. Warren desperately searching for a missing six-year-old, whose mother, the state trooper Tessa Leoni, may have killed the child’s father.

Fiona McArthur On Her Newly Released Harlequin Medical Romance

BY RT BOOK REVIEWS, MARCH 08, 2011 | PERMALINK

Fiona McArthur is one of the series romance authors whose March Harlequin Medical Romance is getting a *Web Exclusive Review*. Today she stops by to chat about what fans can expect from her latest tale, Midwife, Mother ... Italian's Wife.

Hi, I'm Fiona McArthur and I write for HMB Medicals Romance, and I'm a midwife.

Leon Bonmarito is my favourite hero so far. But I’m not going to rave about a sexy Italian widower who didn’t know he had a sense of humour until he found Lyrebird Lake, or about Tammy, a feisty, independent midwife and mother who doesn’t need a man to try and run her life.

Instead, Morgan’s asked me to talk about my core theme, and that’s women being there for women. Or Midwifery.

It’s not money that drives the world, it’s babies and their promise for the future, and women are the ones that are in charge of birth. Did I confuse you? Doctors are in charge of sick people and sometimes we forget birth is a normal event not an illness.

BY MORGAN, MARCH 07, 2011 | PERMALINK

On Saturday authors Amber Benson and Anton Strout held a book signing at Midtown Comics in New York City. It was a natural pairing as they both write urban fantasy for Ace and are great friends. The two authors had a terrific time at the event, laughing and taking photos of each other and fans. They autographed books, fliers, tee shirts and Amber even got to sign some DVDs, videos and headshots. 

Amber, who best known for her role on Buffy the Vampire Slayer as Tara, happily embraces her previous role and answered a lot of questions about the Buffy cast. Top inquiries included whether or not Seth Green would be on SNL and if it is possible to get Buffy’s (Sarah Michelle Gellar) autograph. To this Amber replied, “Maybe not. She’s illusive, like a unicorn.”

RT Remembers Publishing Visionary Walter Zacharius

BY RT BOOK REVIEWS, MARCH 04, 2011 | PERMALINK

The publishing industry lost a brilliant visionary when Walter Zacharius died earlier this week. Zacharius founded Kensington Publishing back in the early 1970s. However, his contributions to the publishing industry do not end there, he was also a driving force behind the first "special-effect" foil stamped book covers bringing holographic, 3D and moving image covers to US readers. Zacharius also created a successful African American imprint, as well as the first line of Spanish-language romances. And just a few years ago he opened a film production company on the West Coast in conjunction with the East Coast-based Kensington Publishing. 

The New York native attended New York University on the GI bill and fought for the United States of America in Europe during World War II. In addition to his work at Kensington Publishing, he became involved in philanthropy, generously donating his time and money to many causes such as the United Jewish Appeal, the United Cerebral Palsy of Queens, Harlem RBI and several scholarships for minority students and those interested in publishing. Fulfilling a dream since childhood, Zacharius published his debut novel when he was 81, 2004's Songbird, which was later re-titled The Memories We Keep.

Author Amanda McIntyre chats about one of the parties she can't wait to attend at this year's RT Booklovers Convention in LA from April 6th - 10th. 

Hi Booklovers!

Amanda McIntyre here and I hope everyone is ready for what is going to be one of the best RT Booklovers Conventions ever! So much detail and care has gone into making this year’s premiere readers and writers convention an event to remember. Not only is it being held at the luxurious Westin Bonaventure Hotel, but the lineup of authors and social events is over the top this year. My thanks to RT for featuring a couple of the parties that I am thrilled to be co-hosting this year with some talented, terrific and enthusiastic authors! 

Starting out the week is Saucy Sirens Through History! Hosted by a few returning historical authors from last year's wildly successful Midnight Mad Hatter Tea Party, we've this year added some new historical faces to the group and it promises to be even more fun. And when I say--historical--you'll see what I mean when you hear about the fun we have planned.
