Romancing the Throne, or, The History of a Parthian Love Story

Naughty Getaways: Eleven Sultry Stories is out! And it includes my ancient world romance, “An Unexpected Discovery” set in Parthia, the kingdom to the east of the Roman Empire. My heroine, Roedogune, is based on an actual historic figure, a Parthian princess who, along with the Parthian imperial throne, was captured by the Romans during their invasion of Ctesiphon, the capital of the Parthian Empire.

Imperial Warriors: Two Scorching Tales of the Roman Empire is out! This mini-anthology includes my stories previously published in Delilah’s collections now available together for the first time. “The Promise of Memory” was published in Hot Highlanders and Wild Warriors, and “Protecting Her” was published in Conquests: An Anthology of Smoldering Viking Romance. It’s my very first anthology of my own stories, which means it’s really a “collection of short stories” rather than an anthology (which implies several authors). But…

Allie Hawkins: A Different Kind of Super Alpha Hero

A Different Kind of Super Alpha Hero The fairy tales we devoured as kids promised us HEA with a handsome prince.  But is it possible for someone who “looks like Abe Lincoln with a buzz cut” to do what he thinks is right without giving a damn what the world thinks?  What if he’s not mega-rich?  Or the CEO of the world’s most powerful—or secret—organization in the world?  Can he still be so hot the air sizzles when he enters…

Rock Star Two words that bring to mind the ultimate High Octane Hero. After all, they can whip an arena full of fans into a frenzy with one song, seduce a woman’s body and mind with their music, and hey, they’ve got the rhythm for ALL the right moves. Michael Korvello, the hero of my current release Finding Her Rhythm, has all that…but he doesn’t need it. You see, the guitarist for the hard rock band Solar Uprising has a…

As a young woman, I’ve always been impressed with people who could survive in the wild. I wrote a book report about Robinson Crusoe, and saw the movie Swiss Family Robinson. Later, I saw the movie Castaway with Tom Hanks, watched the show Lost and became lost. I also became addicted to the show Survivors. I went as far as planning my family’s dinner hour around the show, lol. But I kept thinking, could two strangers survive on a deserted island. And if they…

The men of Phoenix-alpha superheroes all the way First of all, huge thanks to Delilah for hosting me today. She has been my guide and inspiration since the very early days of my writing journey when I was privileged to be part of her critique group. Her insight and guidance has been invaluable to me and I never could have done it without her. And now about my superheroes. When I set out to write The Phoenix Agency series—oh, wait!…

I’ll be back tomorrow to announce the winner of the contest in the posting below this one! DD * * * Readers everywhere, I’ve got a slew of high-octane heroes for you—nine Navy SEALs in my seven-book Navy SEALs series and three government agents in my Counterterrorist Taskforce Series.

WorldBuilding Hey there, everyone. I’m Tory Michaels, author of the Dream-Walker War Series, a paranormal romance/urban fantasy blend series and I’m here to talk about world building for your books. I don’t have scads of experience (I don’t have 40 books published to my name like some authors do), but I know what’s worked for me so far. Let me be perfectly forthright. Deep down, I’m incredibly lazy. I don’t like drawing maps, or having to come up with weather…

Writers are often asked whether or not their characters and stories are based on their lives, on something real. Of course, all writing has some of the writer’s truth in it, but for the most part, many fiction writers write exactly that – fiction. Like them, my characters and stories come from within – sprouting from an ethereal place and taking shape in my consciousness. There is one story however, that is 100% autobiographical (with a few minor tweaks to…

Genesis: Creating Worlds Have you ever wondered how writer’s come up with such elaborate world’s to which their stories unfold? What goes through the mind of an author as they create unique characters and scenery that captures reader’s attention and welcomes them to their realm with open arms? Like most authors I have my own personal approach to this task but felt compelled to ask my colleagues their opinion. The “Muse” apparently takes a big chunk of the credit but…
