Rewrite Update

I’m working on rewrites for book number three, and I submitted the rewritten partial to my editor about two weeks ago. Of course that’s always nail biting and I think I might have worked out what makes major revisions, to me, so hard to get a good read on. I think going through revisions, or […]

The Path To Publication

This post was inspired by publishing myths over on Writer Beware ( a great resource for writers!) where she was talking about the myth that you have to know ‘someone’ to get into the biz. So I wanted to talk a little bit about my journey from slush to shelf, and all of the stops […]

Love Scenes

This is a discussion that came up in my crit group a little while back, and Jackie also discussed it on her blog recently. So I wanted to continue on the topic, because, let’s face it, in romance, this is kind of important. Of course we know that romance isn’t about sex. It’s not one […]

Alphas Again

Okay, yes, perhaps I’ve over posted on alphas. But they’re darn tricky to write, because there is a fine line to walk between alpha and alphole sometimes, and no one wants to write the latter! So my dear sister, Aideen, sent me this lovely quote that she saw on a documentary last night and I […]

Alpha-betizing Your Hero!

Okay, image is kind of unrelated, I just love this cover*. But really, this guy is pretty hot, can you blame me? Ahem… When I received my first revision letter back on Oct. of ’08, for the partial MS I had submitted, one of the main things the editor wanted me to change was the […]

The Alpha Male *hoooowwwwl*

Ah, the Alpha Male. He’s the cornerstone of the bulk of the category romances. He’s the ultimate feminine fantasy, the untamable, seemingly complete man who has everything (and every woman) his heart desires, and yet when he meets the heroine, our ‘everygirl’, he realizes that she’s the one thing he doesn’t have, and she’s the […]

The Rancher’s Convenient Mistress Exerpt First Draft

Chapter One Acacia Masterson bit out a word that would have gotten her mouth washed out if she’d been in her mother’s presence. Of course, if she’d stayed near her mother she wouldn’t be in her current situation. She turned and faced the gorilla-man that was escorting her from the livestock pavilion and thrust her […]
