Where In The World is Chance Monroe?

This week has been a bit crazy for me, as you might imagine. I am gearing up for a new book release (I’m already touring for it and over at the fabulous Mel Schroeder’s blog today), finishing up my thesis and presentation for my MBA, and working on a dozen other projects.  But something odd happened this week, something rather unexpected, and seven a little touching.  I received not one, not two, but four separate emails from different people asking me about the Chance Monroe series.  They’d picked up my free read over at ARe entitled ‘It Happens,‘ which for […]

Spotlight On: Darla Grant, Editor

Welcome to our Spotlight On week here at the Daily Dose. Last month, I had the great good fortune to interview several book reviewers. I learned a lot from those interviews.

It’s filled with uncertainty, a day of flux and change. Technically, it’s a day that never truly exists, because once it’s here, it’s Today. […]

Sunday Snips and Clips: Prime Evil Teaser

This week for Sunday’s Snip and Clips, we’re talking teasers. Enjoy these opening paragraphs from Prime Evil, an urban fantasy coming from Sapphire Blue Publishing this fall: The earth crumbled and fell down on her face. She closed her mouth to avoid swallowing any. Eyes closing, her hands scrambled against the sides. More earth fell in on top of her, blotting out the sun. Dirt rapidly filled the hole. Someone shouted nearby. She started to open her mouth to call out when the earth pressed in on all sides. If she opened her mouth, it would fill with dirt. She […]

Sex on Location

Sex on location? Yes, I said sex on location. Tonight, the Sapphire Blue authors will be hosting a chat at Coffee Time Romance. The Path to Freedom author Lisa Pietsch will be moderating the chat. Our topic is going to focus on sex on location. Sex Scenes and Location The old saying suggests that location is everything. But is it really when you are writing a sex scene? This is a tough question to answer. In a romance novel, sex scenes serve a pivotal role in defining intimacy in your characters relationship. But how important is the location of the […]
