Flying to Seattle


I’m headed to Seattle to host the Harlequin Reader Luncheon on Saturday.  Flying to Seattle is one of the longer flights that I take at about 4 1/2 hours, so I asked my pals on Facebook what they did to make the time go faster.  Reading was by far the number one answer (seems like […]

Hot New Tuesday Releases


With new books coming out constantly, I just realized that I have never been to a book launch.  I’ve read about them online, I’ve heard people talk about them, but I never attended one.  I bet it’s amazing and how exciting for an author to stand front and center with their creation…their baby and have […]
