Recommended Reading List: March, 2012

I was extremely busy in March, but somehow I managed to read a lot of good stuff as well. Some of my reading came at a workshop at the end of February, beginning of March.

This month, I’ve excerpted […]

A New Pen Name–And A New Book

Recommended Reading List: April 2011

As usual, I’m late posting this. I wanted to get it on the site in May.  Ooops.  Maybe I’ll get May’s up in June.  Maybe. 🙂  Here’s what I wrote about April: In April, I binged on romance novels featuring celebrity heroes or heroines (not celebrity romances, which are romances written by celebrities).  I don’t know why I binged, but I was reading those books […]
