“If you could be a character in a novel . . .”

It’s Thursday, which means it’s official Getting To Know You Day on my Facebook page! Last week we talked about prologues, and I learned a lot, both from a reader’s and a writer’s perspective. Today’s question is one of my very favorites in all the world. And I’m going to be kicking things off by sharing a quote from J.K. Rowling on this . . . Join us if you like. :)

Prologues: yes or no?

It’s Thursday, which means it’s official Getting To Know You Day on my Facebook page! Last week we jumped into the question of our favorite movies (which added quite a lot of titles to my to-watch list). Today we’re tackling a question readers and writers can feel very strongly about . . .Graphic: "Prologues - love them or skip them?" Via Lisa Berne

It’s a problem. But a good one, don’t you think?

Book love: Rules for a Rogue

I recently had the pleasure of reading Rules for a Rogue by Christy Carlyle, a new-to-me author, and I wanted to tell you about it. I fell in love with the protagonists, Phee and Kit, and Christy’s writing is just beautiful. Also, the cover is spectacular. That gown!

Christy has a new book coming out next week, A Study in Scoundrels, which I’m so excited to read. And please enjoy this equally spectacular cover!

Book love: Recipe for Redemption

I recently had the pleasure of reading a fantastic contemporary romance novel, Recipe for Redemption, by Anna J. Stewart. Anna’s writing style is so compulsively readable, and her characters so vividly drawn, that I absolutely had to read this in one sitting.


And Anna’s got a new book coming out in May, which I’m super-excited to read. Check out this stunning cover!
