I’m going to be visiting some of my favorite new author friends over the next week or so, starting tomorrow and I’d love you to join me in my hop. I’m doing a consecutive Excerpt of Flight of Her Life, my new Romantic Comedy especially for Christmas, so if you follow along, by the end, you will have read my first two chapters. I love life and I laugh a lot. I think that’s why funny things seem to happen to me. So I thought I would do a little competition. The answers will be a pure guess and just for fun, but by the time you’ve read a few of the questions, you’re going to have a better insight to how things are in my life – especially it seems when I go on holiday. Also I will give away a free copy of Flight of Her Life to the two top scoring visitors. You need to answer all the questions on the first 6 sites, just leave your answer in the comment box at the bottom of each blog and I will let you know the answers when we reach Layne, so follow me around. If you miss one out, y

Flight of Her Life - Excerpt

Excerpt One entire week! How in hell’s name was she supposed to keep up the pretense for one whole week? Honestly, when Phillip’s parents saw beneath her cultured voice and her ability to dress slick, the premier family of Houston, Texas were going to run her out of town. They were going to realize what a fraud she was when she made her first move and destroyed their house with a flick of her wrist. Then their precious boy would never be allowed to marry her. Bailey crossed her legs to relieve the ache in one buttock and give the other side of her bottom a little more weight. Sitting on the floor of the elevator for three hours the previous night had not been the most comfortable experience of her life and her backside hurt. She was going to cross her legs on this occasion, but she needed to get out of the habit as soon as she could. After all, she didn’t want people to think she was cheap. She wondered if she would be considered vulgar for spending three hundred dollars on

5 Places to Find Story Ideas - M S Kaye

A warm welcome back to M S Kaye who visited here not so long ago on the launch of her fabulous book The Fight Princess. This time she's here to show us her new release Once. Tell us, where do you find your story ideas? The first question most people ask me when they find out I write is “How do you come up with your ideas?” I think part of the trick is just to be constantly tuned into that part of your brain. Where other people might think, “Wow, I need to Facebook that,” writers are thinking, “Ooh, that’s a great story idea!” Other than everyday life, here are some places where I find ideas and inspiration: 1.       History —Some crazy things have happened in our world throughout the ages. Why not use it? I either pick an event or circumstance and modify it to fit my purposes, or create a link to some major event in history. 2.       Mythology and Fairy Tales —Even crazier things happen in mythology, which makes it a ripe playing ground for writers. The novel that I’m

Character Interviews from The Virgin Madam - New Release by Shiloh Sadler

Welcome Shiloh, It’s lovely of you to drop by and bring Joe and Laura with you today. Help yourselves to coffee, draw up a chair, grab some chocolate and come and have a chat. I absolutely love your cover art in that wonderful atmospheric sepia. I hope you don’t mind, but I have some questions to ask, and I’m going to jump right in and start with Joe Joe is an odd name for a girl. Why do people call you that? My full name is Josephine Bascum. I’ve been called Joe since I was old enough to sit a horse. My papa wanted a boy. Wouldn’t you just love to be able to dress up in those can-can clothes? I’d look mighty funny, don’t you think? I don’t have the build it requires. How would you describe yourself? I’m a tomboy. A little rough around the edges, but I’m a person you can count on.     What is your biggest flaw? I’m stubborn. Being bull-headed runs in the family. Can you tell me how long you have been on the run for? I guess it
