Spamalot! and NOT the musical!

Okay, folks.  Time to check out your spam folders.  You just may be a winner! Mr. Wang Shu, for example, wants me to keep his proposal top secret. Apparently, he would like me to contact him about “details as regards to the transfer of $6,500,000.00 to you. This money initially belongs to a client who […]

The Best and Worst Things About Being a Writer

I hope everyone is having a fabulous holiday season! As we count down to 2013, I’m thrilled to have Melinda Leigh guest blogging today about the best and worst things about being a writer! If you haven’t read Melinda’s breathtaking romantic suspense novels, now’s your chance! She’s giving away a kindle or print copy of […]

Twitter for Newbies (Part 1: Set-up, Following, Tweeting and Responding)

I recently set up a Twitter list for a group of traditionally published authors (myself included) who are selling new and backlist copy in digital format. (You can find us at https://twitter.com/juliekenner/kindleklatch-authors – come on, follow along! You may find an author you love!) In the process, I learned that Twitter is a confusing little birdie […]

Fab gift idea for the music lover in your family!

According to my husband, this Complete RCA Collection of Arturo Toscanini’s music used to retail for about $1500. He knows, because back in the day when we were first married, he coveted it. But early marriage finances do not support one-thousand plus purchases. But now … Now it’s right at $100! How sweet is that? […]

Still of the Night – great holiday suspense!

Looking for something suspenseful for the holiday? Check out Dee Davis’s Still of the Night, only 99 cents for the Kindle!  (I have a paper copy on my keeper shelf, but snagged me a copy for my Kindle.  Score!)

Five Minute Fudge Recipe (this stuff is awesome!)

This is the best fudge I have ever had. Swear. I am not a fan of candy store fudge. This fudge has the right texture, the right taste, and it is so, so, so easy to make. (I only make it during the holidays, otherwise I would have to buy new clothes every other week […]

Scene Rescue: When Collaborators Disagree—And Live To Tell The Tale

I’m so excited that Ruth Harris is guest-blogging today!  Ruth is a New York Times and ebook bestselling author of romantic women’s fiction. With her husband, Michael, she writes thrillers. (How cool is that?)  Coming up soon is The Chanel Caper, a romantic comedy-mystery starring a baby boomer couple. I particularly love Ruth’s description of The […]

Flowers in the Attic and other Guilty Secrets

What do incestuous ballerinas, demons, and erotica have in common? Well, that would be me! Yes, it’s true. I spent much of my youth reading (and re-reading) the Flowers in the Attic series. (I even took the series as my pool-side reading on my honeymoon!) My movie guilty pleasures run more towards the romantic-cry-at-the-ending kind. […]
