Elisabeth Barrett On Her Newest "Blazing" Romance

BY , SEPTEMBER 10, 2012 | PERMALINK

Say good-bye to summer and hello to cooler weather with Elisabeth Barrett's newly released contemporary romance Blaze of Winter. Featuring a sexy former bad-boy and the big-hearted redhead who immediately gets his attention, RT reviewer Dawn calls this story "absolutely adorable." Today Dawn asks the author about her latest book and what else readers can expect from the Grayson brothers.  

***

Theo Grayson, the hero in Blaze of Winter, is an author. But at the story's beginning he is struggling with his next book. As a writer yourself, do you ever have this same problem?

Great question! As a writer, I have not yet had a bout of “writer’s block.” I’m going to chalk this up to my former life as a patent attorney, where strict deadlines were the norm. You had a brief to write, and you simply wrote it, end of story. I try to bring that same approach to my fiction writing.

Your Guide To The New (And Improved) Kindles

BY , SEPTEMBER 07, 2012 | PERMALINK

Everyone has been anxiously awaiting a look at Amazon's new digital devices and at yesterday's press conference Jeff Bezos did not disappoint. At the Product Reveal event, new and improved Kindles were proudly shown off by the company’s founder and CEO. We know that everyone is eager to hear about the new Kindle Fire HDs, but since there are so many changes in Kindle products in the works, we've decided to do a quick run through of all of the exciting announcements. 

First, we'll start with an oldie-but-goodie. The price for Amazon's most basic Kindle, which is without a physical keyboard and has WiFi capabilities, is now a mere $69. (This is with ads displayed. If you want an ad-free Kindle, $20 is tacked on to the price tag). This means that even your cheapest great aunt no longer has an excuse to avoid the digital revolution! And even though this 4th generation Kindle is cheaper than the last, there have been some great upgrades including faster page turns and crisper text. So if you are looking to do nothing more on your e-reader than, you know, read, this device is ideal.

Author Robin Covington And Her Husband Talk Romance

BY , AUGUST 23, 2012 | PERMALINK

Romance author Robin Covington had an interesting conversation with her husband (aka "The Main Man") about where she gets her ideas and inspiration for her books, including her most recent release A Night of Southern Comfort. We're glad she shared it with us — and you — because while this author is making a name for herself in romantic suspense, she also knows how to make us laugh!

***

So ... it isn’t easy being with a woman who writes romance novels. The Main Man and I have been married for 18 years (we married when I was 5-years-old) and he is immensely proud of my writing but we both work as attorneys in a conservative environment where many people are a little surprised/shocked when they discover that I write “those kinds of books”. And while they hesitate to ask me about where I get my ideas and my inspiration, they don’t bat an eye at asking him.

So, when he returned recently from a night at our local pub, we had the following conversation:

The Main Man: So, the guys were talking about your book tonight.

Me: Really? How did that come up?

The Main Man: Well, actually they started reading the first scene with an app on someone’s phone. You know the one with the bar pick-up and sexy, explicit one-night-stand?

Me: Yeah, I wrote it. I vaguely remember that scene.

The Main Man: Well, they asked me where you get your inspiration.

Me: You told them it was you, right?

The Main Man: They didn’t believe me.

Me: Morons. You should have set them straight on that fact.

The Main Man: I didn’t want them to be intimidated.

Me: Good call.

The Main Man: So, I need something to tell them. People ask me all the time. They want to know where you get your inspiration.

Me: Well, I usually start with photos. I’m a visual person so I find photos and put them on my inspiration wall in my office.

The Main Man: The one with the half naked guys all over it?

Me: That’s the one! So, I find a guy who evokes my hero and I’m off and running. For Jackson Cantrell, I used Joe Manganiello – you know Alcide on True Blood. He’s in my top five.

The Main Man: Yeah, yeah. You know if he shows on the doorstep looking for you, it’s done, right? That guy is huge. I’ll just wave goodbye and keep my teeth.

Interview With Dee J. Adams' Bad Boy Rock Star Seger Hughes!

BY , AUGUST 22, 2012 | PERMALINK

In the third book of Dee J. Adams’ Adrenaline Highs series, Dangerously Close, rock star Seger Hughes finds himself in some serious need of R&R. To evade the paparazzi, he dons a disguise and takes up residence in an isolated cliff-side mansion in Malibu. There he finds more than he ever expected: Ashley Bristol, the love of his life. But their romance is not without obstacles. Ashley is recuperating from an accident that has taken her sight, and Seger, no matter the precautions he takes, can’t shake one very persistent and dangerous fan.

Now, back in the limelight and creating music with his love by his side, Seger spills his story to famous-actress-turned interviewer, Julie Frasier (from Adams' Danger Zone ). And Julie, it turns out, is a very persuasive interviewer. Look at all the secrets she convinces Seger to spill:
