Author Interview {Elana Johnson}

I just finished Elana Johnson’s latest release ELEVATED after an obsessive reading session yesterday. Beginning to end, I was surprised and delighted by how much I enjoyed this book entirely in prose. To be honest, when the format was first announced, I didn’t quite know how to wrap my head around it. A book written in poetry? Like Roses are Red, all rhyming and Dr. Seuss-y? Don’t get me wrong, I love the Seuss, but this was a YA novel with tension and … Horton doesn’t bring it!   Nevertheless, when I started reading, I was instantly hooked. The poetry of the words – not rhyming, but lyrical, rolling out wave after wave of this story that you just have to know more about. I adored the way the words were placed, the visual poetry...

Can’t Wait to READ

Last week I was flying long distances, cramped into a tiny seat, crammed against the window, cradling my infant son in my lap while wishing I had the forethought to download a few books onto my phone with it’s negligible battery life to distract me when the grand view didn’t suffice. Needless to say, it was a very long flight. 6+ hours of endless nothing. I couldn’t get my “Amaze”ing phone to link up with the inflight internet to mindlessly scroll through Facebook, the only book downloaded onto my Kindle wasn’t cutting it…I kept rewriting it in my head and that’s just no good. And since my arms were full of sweet baby, I couldn’t write either (though I tried using my phone for that too. Just too slow!). Don’t...

Author Interview – {Kimberly Krey}

Speaking of LOVE, we’re ending the week with another something I love: the debut of the Author Interview Series! Weekly, or biweekly, depending on the moon and other undisclosed factors, I’ll be posting an interview with authors and industry pros from many different genres where we can learn about them, their books and their methods. Today we’re talking to the talented Kimberly Krey, an Indie author with a pair of Western Romances just perfect to download for the Romance Addict in your life. Her latest, JADE’S COWBOY CRUSH is out now on Amazon where you can also find her first in the series CASSIE’S COWBOY CRAVE. I’m thrilled to have Kim here to answer a few questions: CH: I grew up reading clean romances, and cowboys are some...

For Moi?

Talking about love brings a myriad of emotions. We think of our sweethearts, our hearts tug when we consider our little munchkins, friends, siblings, parents…they all make the list ahead of one person. YOU! Am I right? Loving ourselves is often unfairly forced to wrestle with the concept of selfishness and narcissism. We avoid taking care of ourselves while “waiting for Superman to lift us up and show us love.” Is it no wonder we end up resentful, depleted and generally disappointed. This leaves our sweeties feeling increasingly confused as to HOW to love us when we refuse to love ourselves and (heaven forbid!) ask for what we need. This is the place I spend a lot of my time, and I’m in rehab. Rehab for forgetting myself. A twelve step program...

A Heart So Broken {Teaser}

So this morning, instead of going to preschool, my little Trouble is stuck in his room moping. I’m thinking about working out (totally going to do it after the next feeding session – totally), and in spirit of procrastination I’m blogging on a Tuesday, sharing a romantic teaser from my book A HEART SO BROKEN. Here’s the setup: Jenna Tucker has just returned home from losing her cast – the one she got while hanging with her bad boy boyfriend BEFORE she came to West Junction. Her boyfriend and her cast are finally history and Cooper, the hunky football star of this little town, brings her home after celebrating: “Thank you for tonight,” I said, looking up at him, wanting to tempt him and yet knowing I shouldn’t,...
