Happy Easter!

Happy Easter, everyone! I hope you all are having a wonderful time and that you're able to share this beautiful day with your loved ones :) I'm looking forward to watching my children enjoy their egg hunts, and having Easter dinner with my family. On a side note, I'm also looking forward to eating Reese's Peanut Butter Cups again. Gave them up for Lent this year...hardest thing I've ever done. LOL. Have a great day!

Tour Stop! "Deep Connections" by Rebecca Graf

Managing Multiple Writing Projects – by Rebecca Graf
Writers march to their own drummer. Don’t listen to any writer that says you have to write a certain way. Every writer has their own method, and it’s not always set in stone. It can change. This is especially true for multiple writing projects. Most writers have ideas hit them every day of the year. They note them for future use, but a few get picked up by the muse. The creative torture begins. You’ll find yourself writing the one story while another one pounds away in your head demanding to be let out. You want to focus on the story in front of you, but you can’t. The result? Confirmed craziness or multiple writing projects. I get started on the main writing projec…

"Vain" by Jill Hughey Book Blast!

Today we welcome author Jill Hughey and her book "VAIN"  an amazing  historical romance.

Book Synopsis Lily had her life planned, neat and tidy as thread on a spindle, until her mother died and her father snipped at the seams of her future by abandoning Lily in their shop. A nobleman unexpectedly gives her hope when he brings fabric for a special garment. Lily survives on his first payment, and immerses herself in sewing and embroidering an incomparable garment for him, as her tidy plan continues to unravel. Theophilus, Lord of Ribeauville, takes his responsibility to his townspeople seriously and, therefore, does not dally with local women. Desire wars with duty when Lily glances up at him while adjusting the hem on his Easter tunic. As her deteriorating circumstances push them together, Theo and Lily learn that the path to his heart just might be through his wardrobe, though the exquisite outfit she creates is the only part of her that fits in his precarious aristocratic worl…

When A Book Becomes A Movie

Ain't it the truth? I love when I hear that a book I enjoyed is being turned into a movie. But I also have my reservations about it because I know darn well that they are going to end up leaving out one of my favorite scenes and replacing it with a scene I felt wasn't as great. If it ain't broke don't fix it, am I right?
Do you have a favorite book that you feel could've been portrayed better on the big screen?

"Coinage of Commitment" by Rob Costelloe Book Tour Stop!

It is my pleasure today to be hosting author Rob Costelloe on his book tour forCoinage of Commitment! Please enjoy the following guest post from Rob!

Surprise Your Mate into Loving You More
My books feature characters who want more from love that what they see all around them. Something stronger, something higher, something worth pursuing. Part of that pursuit is usually an effort to understand love. We can’t make it soar higher or make it last longer unless we figure out how it works and what can harm it. This usually means the characters need to take a thinking as well as an emotional journey to attain the romantic altitude they seek. And this opens up all sorts of story paths to explore. What conditions in their lives produced a hunger for such fulfillment? And, of course, what are they going to do about getting what they want?
But what I wanted to do today is open up musings over how to make it last. Not just last as in the marriage surviving, but how to keep it fresh and vibrant? Ho…
