Tawny’s Top Ten Reasons to Read Romance

A special thanks to my Harlequin (& Playground) bud, Tawny Weber. Tawny graciously agreed to be my guest today and keep my focus on writing my proposal. Thanks much, Tawny. And congratulations on another great book from Harlequin Blaze! Tawny is usually found dreaming up stories in her California home, surrounded by dogs, cats and kids. When she’s not writing hot, spicy stories for Harlequin Blaze, she’s shopping for the perfect pair of boots or drooling over Johnny Depp pictures (when her husband isn’t looking, of course). Come by and visit her at her website. Tawny’s Top Ten Reasons to […]

Well…starting with 46 books and selling 43 tends to make you smile. But our book signing was successful because of the readers and those who promoted our book throughout the store. FIRST— a great book seller and store are essential. Promotion through the […]

The Problem with Villains

I know there are lots of my family and close friends who may disagree with this statement, but I’m too nice. ~Okay, at least in my writing~ When writing, I tend to have problems with the bad guy. A pretty big problem since I write suspenseful stories. I prefer to keep them off the page since it’s easier to deal with finding them, instead of making them look villainous. I haven’t written from the villain’s point of view. In fact, most of my bad guys are just that…BAD guys and it’s hard for me to call them villains. Their activities […]
