“Which door will you open?”

Can I only choose just one? Oh, this is hard! For me it’s a toss-up between Wonderland and Middle Earth . . . with Wonderland, a favorite of mine since childhood, in the lead. :)

What about you? Which door will you open?

The Magic of Change

I’m so honored to be a part of Read-a-Romance-Month 2019! Here’s a little tidbit from my essay on love and the magic of change:

Graphic: Read-a-Romance-Month logoRomance novels — love stories — can, and do, portray their share of dark matter. But within them, like a bright skein woven throughout a dappled fabric, is an optimistic and unshakable faith in change. That it’s not only possible, but achievable, and it happens just when we’re just about to lose hope. There’s no need to fear, though. See? The heroine and the hero have bettered themselves, they’re changed, their trajectories have met and are firmly joined. 

See? Change; connection; hopefulness. Joy. Magic.

Here it is: love. Magic.

Maybe for us, too. Why not?

Plus, there’s a Q&A, book/author recommendations, and a giveaway! Copies of You May Kiss the Bride and The Laird Takes a Bride, the first two books in my Penhallow Dynasty series, are up for grabs.

Scariest book?

For me — hands down — it’s Stephen King’s terrifying (and heartbreaking) Pet Sematary. What’s yours? Let me know!

“Reading positions”

I could easily have been the model for this, especially as a kid. ♥
