Getting to know Izzy Archer (FREE Book!)

Getting to know Izzy Archer (FREE Book!)

Good things come to those who wait? I’ve been writing for years—familiar story—without thinking about a next step! They say, write what you want to read. I write stories about love, lust, romance, relationships, and am now just realizing, hey, someone else might enjoy these suckers. Being a fan of Delilah’s racy romances, I’m over-joyed for Izzy’s debut in the Cowboys Behaving Badly Anthology. I hope you love Deacon in “Something to Talk About” as much as I do, and…

Getting to know Cindy Tanner (Contest)

Getting to know Cindy Tanner (Contest)

UPDATE: The winner is…Mary Ann Dean! *~*~* I attribute my overactive imagination to being an only child living in a rural area. It made the tedious chores go by faster and once I discovered the magic of books I started writing my own. I’ve kept journals of different stories since I was in elementary school, and as a college student with a tight budget, I found myself unable to get a close friend a birthday present. She was an artist…

Getting to Know Reina Torres (Contest)

UPDATE: The winner is…Mary McCoy! *~*~* If you ever meet me in person, know that if/when I get started talking, it’s difficult for me to stop. Not because I’m normally gregarious or outgoing, but the opposite. I’m also someone who likes to connect with others but knows that I’m pretty inept about it. It’s different on stage for me… While I have been trained as a “triple threat,” meaning that I can sing, dance, and act, I really enjoy the…

Getting to Know Megan Ryder (Contest)

I’ve always loved books and telling stories. One of my earliest memories is my mom reading Charlotte’s Web to me before getting up in the morning, something we would do every day. I graduated quickly to other books including Anne of Green Gables and more, spending almost every day after school at the library while my mom worked. There was never enough romances in those books so I always rewrote the endings with more HEAs (happily-ever-afters), then I found the…

Editor/Author Delilah Devlin is looking for stories for a romantic erotica anthology tentatively entitled SILVER SOLDIERS:  A BOYS BEHAVING BADLY ANTHOLOGY.

Getting to Know Ava Cuvay (Contest)

UPDATE: The winner is…Alisongail! *~*~* What an odd task, coming up with interesting tidbits to share with you, especially as I consider myself painfully entrenched in the oversharing side of TMI (Or maybe I’m not the only one to blurt in the middle of a PTO meeting the fact my gynecologist warms the speculum?). So what would you blog readers like to know about me? Hard to anticipate, since I feel like an open book (and not a very titillating…

Next Boys Behaving Badly…

So, yes, we’re still talking about Cowboys: A Boys Behaving Badly Anthology, and next week, we’ll start a new round of contests and discussion about the authors and their stories here on the Collections website (which reminds me I need to head over there tonight and close out some contests—hint!), but I’d like to begin thinking about what’s next because these volumes take time to put together. The first big decision is the theme for the book. As you can…
