Anticipation: the most frustrating emotion EVER

Good morning, everyone! Hope your week has started out great. Quick shout out: I just wanted to say Happy Birthday, to my Aunt Jackie! We’re going out to celebrate tonight with Red Lobster. Yuuummm. But as you can see from the title of the post, feelings of anticipation and anxiety have been high here in my little corner of the East Coast, and at most universities around the U.S for that matter. This week is when the majority of Masters of Fine Arts Schools for various genres of creative...

Market News for the Week

Happy Friday, everyone! Hope you guys had a great week. Thank God it’s Friday! I’ve been buried under a pile of never ending pages to write and revisions to do both for school and for agents/editors. Slowly, I’m managing to dig myself out. As a result, I’ve not been keeping up on the reviews I promised. I apologize for this. During the winter break, when I created the review schedule, I overestimated my abilities to juggle reading for the blog on top of school reading as...

Romance Couples and Sexy Scenes

Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone! As a romance writer, in honor of this day (and month) where romance novels increase their annual sales (yes, sales of romance novels do increase around this time of year), I thought it would be interesting to talk about fictional romance couples. Any romance reader has them–your all time favorite romantic couples–the ones you fawn over time and time again, no matter how much you’ve re-read the novel. There is something about getting an...
