Hint: It was not the lady in the unfortunate pants.


I’ve been struggling to come out of this block I’ve had for the last couple of weeks with my story. I’ve tried writing articles, bought myself a new padfolio from, and whined to my crit partner. A lot.

When that didn’t help, I thought I’d look for some moving quote or bit of advice. I found this.

Well. That was rather uninspiring. I do own this now, though, and that consolation can’t be measured.

Today, I’m interviewing Landra Graf, whose new historical erotica, With This Kilt, I Thee Bed, hit e-shelves everywhere this week. As I mentioned when I hosted her cover reveal, I love Landra’s stories because she can take unexpected protagonists or situations and make them into great stories.

However, I then decided, okay, fine… what advice am I really not qualified to give? Dating advice. Oh, so many reasons why. Exhibit A: I’ve been married so long, I’m not entirely […]

I am so excited to share my wonderful critique partner’s upcoming release cover. It’s gorgeous; the stories are great. And I’m going to tell you a secret that I hope the world realizes very soon: Landra writes unique stories. Oh, that sounds so unimportant, but listen… she can take characters and situations that you wouldn’t expect to see in your typical romance and she writes the hell out of it. I strongly suggest you check her out.

Mommy Spellcheck

P: Mom, how do you spell cheetah? Me: *spells word* And even if you’re 72, you can always ask me how to spell things as long as you’re trying to learn. Because we can’t all be like me, and know how to spell all the words. P: No, we can’t. Me: It’s a superpower, really. […]
