An Interview with K.E. Osborn, Author of The Trust Me? Trilogy

Today I’m pleased to welcome K.E. Osborne, author of the Trust Me? trilogy to Becky on Books!  An interview with author K.E. Osborne: Welcome! Tell us more about your book—take us beyond the official “book blurb”. The character Jeni is based loosely on myself.  I am a little clumsy, I had a super controlling ex, and I have an absent father, so a lot of the book comes from my own experiences in the past. Her trust issues are based on my own and therefore it was easy to get inside Jeni’s head and figure out how and why she…

Title: Roman Holiday 3: Blindsided Author: Ruthie Knox Series: Roman Holiday Genre: Contemporary romance Published: 2013 Pages:  50 Format read: ebook Rating: B+ Blindsided  is another short installment–just 50 pages–but it somehow manages to pack quite a wallop anyhow. We left Ashley and Roman at the swamp–newly arrived at a hippie commune, and just about to join in the “drum circle”. Not exactly Roman’s cup of tea, as you can imagine… This episode gives us a deeper insight into Roman’s character, and, because we also see one scene from his fiancee Carmen’s eyes as well, we learn a bit more about his relationship with his mentor and…

I Survived NaNoWriMo! (Week in Review 11-29-13)

  Me, on Saturday… and then at 11:30 PM EST…   Woot! Finished with a half an hour to spare! Okay, let me clarify–my word count has been achieved, but the novel is far, far, from finished. Many scenes need to be written and/or fleshed out, and don’t even get me started on the revision–I left notes for myself all over the place (in the chapter labels, where they didn’t count toward my word count, of course) about issues I encountered after the fact (e.g.–rewrite scene–JANE NOT THERE YET!) that will need to be dealt with. But–fifty thousand words! I did…

Ready for Some More Roman Holiday? The Story Continues with Hitched, Episode 2!

  Title: Hitched Author: Ruthie Knox Series: Roman Holiday Genre: Contemporary romance Published: 2013 Pages:  50 Format read: ebook Rating: A- Ruthie Knox’s Roman Holiday continues with Hitched, the second “episode” in the serialization. Although it wasn’t quite as laugh out loud as the first (for which my daughter thanks you, Ruthie), it was still a darn good read. Hitched begins shortly after Chained left off–okay, a while after, since we have to wait for our heroine to regain consciousness…which she does, in a different location from where she lost it. Interesting, yes? She got there somehow, and two guesses as to how… 😉 Oh, and she’s…
