Author Anna Campbell has a saucy proposition ...
I’m delighted to be here at the RT Blog! Really, I mean delighted (yeah, I’m still glowing from that Top Pick review for My Reckless Surrender in the June edition. Who wouldn’t be?).
My Reckless Surrender was released on May 25th from Avon. It’s the story of a dangerous seduction in late Regency London.
Christie Craig shares the truth about the insipiration for her characters' embarrassing accidents ...
|Oh, it hurts to fall on our tushes. If it happens in front of people, the thing usually bruised the most isn't our butt cheeks, it's our pride. But let's be honest, those ego-bruising mishaps make us laugh — well, as long as there isn't too much blood. Even without it, it's generally after the fact that we see the humor in the situation. Regrettably, at the Craig household, we’re familiar with those situations. So familiar, that I’ve added some of these painfully funny mishaps to my new release, Shut Up And Kiss Me.|

Today RT Web Editor Morgan Doremus and RT Assistant Web Editor Whitney Sullivan caught up with four fan-favorite authors at the Book Expo of America: Debbie Macomber, Carla Neggers, Rochelle Alers and Beth Kephart. Be sure to check out the GIVEAWAY at the end of the blog post!
Author Debbie Macomber was signing copies of her latest release Hannah's List. Even after Macomber ran out of books, fans were still lining up to meet her. The widespread appeal of Macomber's fiction is undeniable. One fan even exclaimed, "You can't personalize it - I have to share your books!"
After the signing was over, Macomber had a few minutes to answer questions with Whitney.
WS: What was something that was new, or different, while you wrote Hannah's List?
DM: There are portions of the story which are written in male first person point of view, which I've never done before.
This past Saturday I scrolled through the available titles at the Red Box nearest my house and was thrilled to discover that they had in stock The September Issue, a behind-the-scenes documentary on the production of the September 2008 issue of Vogue magazine (the September issue being the most important issue in any given year).
I don’t read Vogue — my fashion tastes aren’t that haute. But I have certainly heard of Anna Wintour, the editor-in-chief of Vogue, often described as the most powerful woman in the $300 billion fashion industry. Moreover, I can easily identify her — with her trademark bob and her shades — in a line-up.
Ms. Wintour is well aware of her power and unhesitant about using it. I find her slightly scary and downright fascinating — so of course I relished The September Issue, filled with scene after scene of La Wintour being La Wintour.
