A Conversation with Maya Rodale, Author of CHASING LADY AMELIA (Keeping Up with the Cavendishes #2–with a New Release Review and Giveaway!)

 Enter to Win a print copy of LADY BRIDGET’S DIARY (Keeping up with the Cavendishes Book One) Welcome, Maya! Tell us about yourself. I’m a New York City girl who loves to read and write romance novels (12 and counting!). I enjoy Beyoncé dance parties, romantic comedies, and talking about why romance novels matter. The hardest part of my day is staying up past 9pm. I married a great guy who thinks all my books are about him and I have the most fabulous dog who knows everything is all about her (Peek at pictures here!). My website is www.mayarodale.com, check…

Looking for an Excuse to Read More? How About Bookish Bingo, Summer Edition?

Procrastination is a wonderful thing. It helps me find such interesting stuff online… It’s Camp NaNoWriMo month, so I should be writing. (But I already wrote 1001 words this afternoon, so I’m more than halfway to today’s goal, so… 😉 ) I’m taking two online writing courses that I’m shamefully behind on. I’ve got boxes, crates, and bags of books LITERALLY all over my house from my now not-quite-empty-but-closer-than-it’s-ever-been-before classroom that need to go somewhere. Not to mention all the other stuff from my room that needs a home in my home. Seriously. It’s like the labyrinth over here. I…

Book Review: Roman Holiday: Ravaged and Ignited by Ruthie Knox (Episodes 4 and 5)

  Ravaged Blurb: As the road trip up the Eastern Seaboard continues in Episode 4 of Ruthie Knox’s eBook original serial, Roman Holiday, sparks are flying—but Ashley and Roman are farther than ever from seeing eye-to-eye about what matters most. Roman Díaz doesn’t do love. It hasn’t worked out for him. He could never survive trying to live with his heart wide open the way Ashley Bowman does. But it’s hard to keep his walls up around this woman. Every mile he spends in her power leaves him more ravaged by memories and emotions he can’t control—and drags him closer to succumbing…

Seriously Awesome Proposal! (Week in Review 12/8/13)

I think he can forget a few birthdays and anniversaries yes? It’s almost enough to make me start watching basketball. And appreciating cheerleaders. Almost. Wow. Just…wow. After that, I’m not sure I can even remember what I’m doing…or reading….. Mr. Moe proposed at Christmas. Kind of, anyway. He really proposed a week after we met, but I figured he was either 1) kidding or 2) crazy, so either way my answer at that time wouldn’t be binding. But I did get the ring for Christmas. 😉 Speaking of Christmas, it’s coming–and report cards go out on Thursday, which means it’s…

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…
