Vixen in Velvet

Vixen in Velvet (The Dressmakers Book 3)   Loretta Chase writes about the third Noirot sister in Vixen in Velvet. Leonie is the business woman of the threesome but no less charming than her more creative siblings. Her head is not quite filled with numbers however. There is still room for thoughts of gods and goddesses like those in the Botticelli that figures in the plot not to mention the godlike Lord Lisburne.   He’s got his hands full protecting one poetry-spouting cousin from stampedes of sentimental young ladies. Still, he would be happy to spend some time with Leonie, if only she’d stop turning another cousin from ugly duckling to swan.   It is really encouraging to discover what the right clothing design can do.

Friday! Friday! Friday!

If you haven’t realized it yet, it’s Friday. This has been the longest week. Since I’m closing my office for a week and taking a much needed vacation, time has slowed to a crawl. I plan to write, write and write some more. I just hope my plans come to life.  Do you have plans for the weekend? You should. Even if it’s just heading to the park and having a picnic. Don’t let life fly by you and then you get to the point to where you say “I should have…”. I’ve done that myself for so long. I’d put off trips and just plain out put off doing things that were different. I guess you could say I’m like a hermit. Especially since I’ve been writing and publishing my books, I’ve been attached to my laptop.  I just hope that we have WIFI so that I can stay...

Interview with Author Kay Thomas and Giveaway

Meet Kay Thomas, author of Personal Target. Award-winning author Kay Thomas didn’t grow up burning to be a writer. Until fourth grade she wasn’t even much of a reader. That’s when her sister read THE BLACK STALLION aloud to her. For hours Kay was enthralled—shipwrecked and riding an untamed horse across desert sand. Then tragedy struck. Her sister lost her voice. But Kay couldn’t wait to hear what happened in the story—so she picked up that book, finished reading it herself, and went in search of more adventures at the local library. Today she lives in Dallas with her husband, their two children, and a shockingly spoiled Boston terrier. Her national best-selling "bulletproof" novels have been translated into multiple languages. In November 2013, HARD TARGET: Elite Ops-Book 1 was published in her new series from Avon Impulse. Look for PERSONAL TARGET in July 2014. Visit her website at Find...

Billionaires And Bikers – Should We Write In A Trendy Theme Or Genre?

When I first started writing erotic romances, I listened to the published writers who advised “Write the book of your heart and you’ll find a market for it.” I wrote contemporaries featuring billionaire heroes. And I received rejections…from everyone. Erotic romance publisher wanted sexy paranormals. They weren’t interested in publishing contemporary erotic romances. This type of story wasn’t selling. I looked at my long list of story ideas and found an idea for a paranormal erotic romance. It was a unique story, a story I was passionate about. The hero was a dragon shifter, not a wolf shifter. It wasn’t set in today’s world. It was set in a medieval fantasy world. The first publisher I approached (Changeling Press) accepted Dragon Lord’s Mate. It required many rounds of revisions and even more editing but we all knew, with paranormals being hot, the story would sell well enough to warrant this...
