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. :) This week’s questions are brought to you by the most fabulous Susan Scott Shelley. :-) Ready? Let’s do this.

Susan says, “You’ve been gifted with a super power. Which would you choose? Why?”

Well that’s easy! I want to be gifted with either Subliminal Seduction or Flying. Or maybe a combination of both. Oooooooh, and I need a Psychic Shield. We can pick more than one right? Ok, so I want to be able to fly anywhere I want and subliminally seduce anyone into doing what I want and then use my psychic shield to…well, just to have it. I don’t need a reason do I?

How will I use my powers for good, you ask? Well, I can stop the bad guys from seeing my thoughts as I fly over them and put happy images in their heads. Ok, perhaps I should stick to writing and leave the superheroing to the superheroes. :)

Well there you have it. Is it any wonder I am just plain old me and the gods are not so generous with my gifts? Let’s see what Fiona Riplee has to say to that question.

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. :) This week’s questions are brought to you by the most fabulous Jeanne McDonald. :-) Ready? Let’s do this.

1. Describe that moment you first felt like a true author (not just an aspiring one).

I think it was probably when my second book published. The first one was very surreal. But when Promised to the Highlander came out and readers began to talk about the series, I felt like my vision was being realized and yeah, I finally admitted to myself that I was an author. I think it took me longer to admit I was a writer, though. I was probably on my seventh or eighth re-write of Bound to the Highlander before I was willing to say I was a writer.

2. Name three authors who you inspire you.

Stephen King, for the vivid way in which he writes, Johanna Lindsey, for the beauty of her romances, and Jane Austen, for the best dialogue I’ve ever read. As a writer, I think it is necessary that I keep reading. In doing so, I am reminded of just how many talented authors are out there and how exciting it is to become lost in a story. That combination makes me want to keep improving my craft.

3. Describe your favorite fan moment (either you as the fan or one of your readers approaching you as a fan).

I would have to say that was when I met Sharon Frizell. We had been chatting online for a while and an opportunity arose for us to meet at a book signing. I thoroughly enjoyed the moment and our online friendship has grown from there. I admire her attention to detail as a reader and look for her opinion when I’m stuck on something. She rocks!!!

Well that’s it for me this week. Hop on over to see how Carrie Elks answered the same questions. Till 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
