Favorite Indie Romances

I wanted to post this on Tuesday, but I was distracted by the recent holiday. Naturally, I’m referring to National Guys in the Floral Department Day. Every year around this time, if you go into any store with a floral department, you are likely to see a dozen or so men wondering aimlessly in the […]

I Was Looking Forward to Holly Lisle’s Rebel Tales, But…

I read something today that made me want to pull my hair out. As you may know, I’ve been looking forward to Holly Lisle’s upcoming fiction journal Rebel Tales, because I love Holly’s work, and I’m expecting Rebel Tales to reflect what she values in a good story. Today, John Dye, the Rebel Tales SF […]

Big Book Giveaway – Video Promo

Here’s a quick-n-dirty video I made for this year’s Big Book Giveaway, showing off some books by Julie Carobini (Christian romance), Holly Lisle (fantasy romance), Jess C Scott (teen romance), and Sharon Cathcart (historical romance). (I’m sorry that I forgot to bring Jen Knox’s excellent memoir with me when I did the video. But she […]

Book Giveaway: Talyn, by Holly Lisle

A conscripted warrior-mage, lover of the outlander who ended her country’s 300-year war, rescues her nation’s worst enemy from death to battle her lover and end imposed peace. Yeah… I guess that sums it up, if a book like Talyn can be summed up. But that short description really does the story no justice. The […]

Teaser Tuesdays: Talyn (still)

I’m still working my way through Talyn, by Holly Lisle. If you recall, I did teasers for it twice before: here and here. I’m now about 7/16 through, and still singing its praises. A reading session with this story always leaves me that “Wow!” sensation that I love. Frankly, Holly has ruined every other book […]

Teaser Tuesdays: Talyn (again)

Driving up the Maine Turnpike this weekend, I took pause from, of all things, the landscape. Not just from the beauty of it, but I got a feeling that it was distinctly American. In Maine, the culture still retains some of the human community values that I often associate with the original Americans. And for […]

Teaser Tuesdays: Talyn

I’ve been absent, as you may know, because my computer’s mainboard died, and I’ve been busy with a new software contract, and our only working car stopped working, and then my computer’s hard drive died. (Yes, I’m getting tired of it all.) As a result, I hadn’t had have much time to write over part […]

A New Bunch of Books to Read

I agreed to get ahold of a copy of a book written by a fellow-author, and the only place I could get one was from Amazon. That left me with a bunch of dollars left over to spend in order to get free shipping. So I used the excuse to load up on Holly Lisle […]
