“How do you get your ideas?” It’s the question most often asked by readers, and one I’m never sure how to intelligently answer (grin), because a story comes to me in flashes or snippets. A bit of overheard dialogue, the way someone turns their head, even a scent, can unlock a scene idea or a [...]
Ever wonder how an anthology comes together? Well, let me tell you, it’s not just unicorns and rainbows. Okay, it sort of is LOL. This book came together because Lia Davis and I wanted to put our shifter novellas out there together and thought the more the merrier.
Thanks so much for hosting me to talk about Slow Ride Home, the first book in The Grady Legacy trilogy. When my editor first contacted me about writing another contemporary western for Carina, I knew right from the start that I wanted it to be a reunited lovers story—there’s something about the idea of having [...]
I love being an author, but I freely admit that one of the scariest things for me is sitting down to create and discovering you have no idea what you’re about to write about.
It’s always a pleasure to drop by, TGTBTU. I’m honored to be your guest blogger today! With the recent release of my two ebooks: The No Good Irresistible Viscount Tipton and The Scandalously Bad Mr. Milroy, I’m finally able to share more details about my earlier books that I wrote under the pen name, Barbara [...]
Thank you so much for having me here today to talk about my newest release, Everything You Need to Know. This is one of the launch books for the new Cosmo Red-Hot Reads by Harlequin line, and I’m really excited about it.
It’s always a pleasure to have Lynn Viehl join us here at The Pond. Her guest blogs are fun and intriguing. Such was the case a few weeks ago when she talked about her secret life…
I always write my novels for my readers, but there are books that I write for myself as well. A great deal of what I wrote in the StarDoc series was loosely based on my experiences working in the medical field. In the Darkyn novels I used some of my favorite characters from history as [...]
To quote my siblings, “You just have to make things difficult, don’t you?” Yes. Yes, I do. I don’t mean to, my brain just complicates matters all by itself. What am I complicating now?, you might ask. Oh, you know…my career.
Today we have Susan Choi talking with us about her new release, My Education, an erotic and romantic love story that takes a number of turns into the unexpected. Susan lives in Brooklyn, New York, with her family. She studied literature at Yale and writing at Cornell, and her works have received various awards and [...]
Luanne Rice is one of those authors who can pull emotion after emotion from a reader. I just went through that experience in reading her latest release, The Lemon Orchard. With thirty-one books on her backlist and five movies and mini-series adapted from her stories, one can understand why readers love her work. If you’ve [...]
We hope our lucky winner enjoys this book as much Veena did. So gimme a drumroll…
Shapeshifters are one of my favorite reads, so you can imagine how much I love these Amoveo from Sara Humphreys. I had the pleasure of meeting Sara last August at the RWA conference in Anaheim. I know she won’t remember that, too many readers she said hello to during those days, but I’m glad I [...]
Hello, Duck Pond! I’m happy and excited to be here today. I’m even more excited to talk about my new Prairie Hearts Novel, Before the Larkspur Blooms, which launches today. Thank you! And special thanks to Sandy M for reviewing it!
Kate Walker writes for Mills and Boon Modern/Harlequin Presents. Her stories have included adaptations of the classics, sexy Italian billionaires and now she’s added a European prince to her tally. She was kind enough to visit the TGTBTU office and answer the questions thrown at her by intrepid reporter Lynne Connolly. The author of a [...]
