Top 5 distractions while working on a deadline by Paula Quinn
Everything is a distraction when I’m working on a deadline. The worst are:
2. Arrow (The T.V. show. Have you seen it? Have you seen Stephen Amell?)
3. My dogs. The seem to know when I’m on a deadline and want all my attention.
4. Journaling—I love to write!
Please give a warm welcome to Sharon Cullen! She’s here to chat about spies.
Top Five Female Spies by Sharon Cullen
First of all I want to thank you for hosting me today. I’m so excited about the release of Sebastian’s Lady Spy. This was a fun book to write because these two characters were so suited for each other but too hard-headed to realize it until it was almost too late.
Usually when we hear about spies, we hear about male spies but there were plenty of female spies throughout the ages that had an impact on history. Read more
Please give a warm welcome to Maeve Greyson! She’s hijacking the virtual control panel to tell you about her latest release, My Highland Lover.
Hello there! I’m Maeve Greyson and I’m very pleased to be here. My new release, MY HIGHLAND LOVER, the first book in my Highland Hearts series, is Trulie Sinclair’s story. Trulie’s the eldest of four time-traveling sisters and her matchmaking Granny has grand plans for her future—in the past.
Trulie and Granny jump from Kentucky in the year 2014 to Scotland of 1247. Needless to say, the world of 1247 is drastically different—culturally, politically and any other adjective you’d like to slap with an “ly”. But really, you don’t have to look back that many years to realize just how much has changed in the world in a very short time.
Remember when mobile phones were the size of a brick and the only way they’d work was if you had them plugged into the cigarette lighter of your car? Now, not only are some cell phones the size of a playing card, cigarette lighters are no longer a standard feature on a car. Read more
Today we are pleased to have Susanna Ives join us for a round of Marry, Kiss or Kill! For this stop, we asked her to choose between Han Solo, Princess Leia, and Lando Calrissian:
“I can’t kill handsome, smooth-talking Lando Calrissian. In kindergarten when the teacher asked for things that begin with the letter “l”, my daughter stood up and cried, “Lando Calrissian!” I’m marrying Lando.
That leaves me to decide the fates of Princess Leia and Han Solo. Read more

About Lolita Lopez
While browsing bookstore shelves as a teenager, Lo discovered the erotic writings of Anaïs Nin and A.N. Roquelaure. Certain her mother would not approve, Lo smuggled the books home and squirreled them away in the most likely of places: under her bed. Late at night, she delved into the sensual worlds both writers created. Read more
Annabeth Albert dropped by with a guest post, an excerpt from Served Hot, and an awesome giveaway. Check it out!
Why I write m/m (and other ramblings) by Annabeth Albert
A few years ago, my uncles got married after almost forty years together. They got married the year it became legal in their state after decades of home ownership, pet parenthood, job changes, family holidays, and the sort of companionship that really only comes from building a life together. Growing up, it was simply a fact of family life that I had two uncles, who lived together, and only one was blood related to me. It wasn’t until I was an adult that I realized what it meant that they couldn’t marry, that if one of them got sick the other might not be allowed to see them in the hospital, and all the other red tape and prejudice they had to deal with. As a child, all I saw was their love. Read more
