Romance Weekly

For those of you joining us from previous weeks, welcome back! For those of you just joining in, welcome to Romance Weekly where each week a bunch of us authors will answer the same three questions and you get to hop around from blog to blog and learn a little more about us. :) The topic this week is by Jeanne McDonald and she asks: Outside of writing, what is your day job? What inspired you to take on this job and would you ever consider giving it to one of your characters?

This is such a great question because I don’t know if a lot of readers realize that many of us authors only write part-time. I work as an Advertising Officer for the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador. Specifically, I work in the Strategic Staffing division and promote employment opportunities. Years ago, I worked in various roles with an advertising agency including media buyer, production supervisor, and accountant, which put me in a unique position and qualified me for this position because of my financial and marketing background.

I love my job. Recruitment marketing is very different from retail marketing and I get to analyze and suggest specific placements for specific positions. This position also helps me keep up on emerging online promotional trends.

I would consider giving this job to a character yes, but even more so, I would consider giving a character two jobs like me. My day starts early and ends late. I juggle family, day job, writing, friends, and me time. It’s an enormous amount of work, but I would not have it any other way. :)

That’s it for me this week so keep on hippity hoppin along over to Kate Forest to see how she answered the question. Until next week!!

Now Where Did I Put My Groove?

Hey everyone! I know it’s been a very long time since I updated my site and I think it’s definitely time I got a duff in the arse to get back to it. You always hear how life gets in the way and all that stuff and to a degree that’s true, but sometimes you just need to haul yourself up by your bootstraps and trudge forward again. That’s my wish and it begins by posting here again about my current projects in the hope that I will become more accountable to my goals. Continue reading

Countdown to #scrollsofcridhe #newrelease – ONE MORE DAY!

Long, long ago, in the time before time, seven sisters were called from the far reaches of the realm. Each brought unique talents, but had one common gift; the ability to weave ageless tales of love and courage. An evil witch coveted their gifts and locked them in a tower, silencing their voices upon threat of death. But the Highlands are enchanted, and magic will not countenance seven pure hearts such as theirs to be lost.

With no one else to hear them, they sang their stories to each other. Fate blew a braw Highland wind to their prison, and the sweet, high timbre of the sisters’ voices enthralled it. The wind gathered close their silver words as it raced past each day, and carried their love and goodness throughout the world…then across the ages.

Today, their words live on in the Guardians of the Cridhe, seven sisters who have sworn to preserve those pure and musical hearts so long as they live. It is said these seven descend from those ancient female bards. Only their words can bear witness to that truth… Continue reading
