Newsletter alert!

Coming soon in my next newsletter . . . an exclusive (and very fun!) interview with one of my favorite authors, the super-talented Anna J. Stewart. Anna writes sweet to sexy romance for Harlequin’s Heartwarming and Romantic Suspense lines, is an RWA Golden Heart nominee and Daphne Du Maurier Award for Excellence finalist, and a USA Today and national bestselling author.

  • If you weren’t a romance author, what else would you be doing?
  • Do you have an all-time favorite book in the world?
  • Can you tell us about your upcoming books?
  • Any advice for an aspiring writer?
  • Do you ever experience writer’s block? If so, how do you overcome it?
  • Who or what are your literary influences?

I’m also giving away three print copies of Anna’s The Rancher’s Homecoming. (Don’t you just love the gorgeous cover?!?) Subscribers to my newsletter are automatically entered into the giveaway.

If you aren’t a subscriber yet, would you like to be? There’s an easy-peasy form on my website as well as on my Facebook page.

Here’s an interesting book storage idea.

I must admit, though, I’m ambivalent. On the one hand, you’d have more room for books. (Always a good thing.) On the other hand, wouldn’t they get (ugh) dirty with all the foot traffic? What say you — yes or no?
