How To Have An Affair By Lindsay Harper

Blog Diva - Thursday, May 15, 2014

Thanks for inviting me to guest blog today and I’m so excited to be telling you about my new book “How to Have an Affair.”

The book was originally going to be called ‘The Greatest Gift’ but one day when I was out walking my dogs the new title came to me and from then on it was called “How to Have an Affair” – which you have to agree catches your eye. I had to add novel after the title as some people thought it was a workbook giving you tips on how to be unfaithful to your partner (which it isn’t!)

I’ll let the blurb tell you what the book is about.

How to Have an Affair

Have you ever been attracted to someone you shouldn’t?

Were you prepared to risk everything?

Robyn Fisher is a frustrated, busy, working mum and wife who feels that life is passing her by – that is until she meets charismatic psychologist, Jay Trethedick, at a weekend seminar. Despite the instant attraction, Robyn resists Jay’s advances only to surrender to temptation a week later and they begin an intense and passionate love affair. But when the lovers start taking increasingly dangerous risks, Robyn’s husband discovers the truth and walks out, destroying Robyn’s world.

Reggie exploded out the door and into the pack of waiting press. The chilled air reached for her, and she longed for Tallahassee’s late September heat.

“Princess, over here.”

“What do you think of Hessenberg?”

“Are you really the great-granddaughter of Princess Alice?”

“Are you going to sign the entail?”

Cameras clicked and buzzed in her ears and her forward motion stopped when she sank into the mud of media.  Read More

A Post Hijack by The Emerald Springs Underbelly Blog

Hello, fellow snoops! Holley Trent was supposed to provide a post, but I think you’ll like what I have to say even more. I’ve got gossip! Who doesn’t love gossip?

As you know, every spring, the folks here in Emerald Springs, Washington pitch in for a massive town potluck. This year, Sam Whitman of Emerald Tea Farm thought the gathering would be a great venue to test out his new blog feature. His experiment with video didn’t go so well, but our crafty snoops at The ES Underbelly Blog were able to download his video before he pulled it. We’ve transcribed these awkward exchanges for your reading pleasure.


(Camera activates revealing Sam seated at a table in the community center. Alan Prevost walks past, carrying a plate and a bottle of beer.)

Sam Whitman: Alan! Alan Prevost, come talk to me.

(Alan looks around, sighs, and pulls out a chair next to Sam.) Read More

Betting The Rainbow By Jodi Thomas

Blog Diva - Thursday, April 03, 2014

The idea for my newest Harmony book BETTING THE RAINBOW came from the question, “If you had a chance to change your life, what would you be willing to risk?”

My character Dusti Delaney and her sister were stuck on a small farm , on a little lake, near Harmony, Texas. They made enough to live but nothing more. Both had dreams of what could have been if one had been able to finish nursing school and the other had followed her dream of being a professional photographer.

On their once-a-month night out Dusti learns of a charity poker game and sees her one chance to change. Though she has her goals too, she wants to see her sister follow her dream first.

One man knows enough about poker to teach her to win. Only problem is, if she makes it to the final table, she’ll be playing against him. As he teaches her about Texas Hold’em and love, she sees the possibility of her dream coming true.

I think I loved this story so much because I once pushed all my chips in on a dream. I wanted to write but with teaching, going to grad school and raising two boys, there was never any time. Finally, with the help of my husband, I quit, drew out my retirement and lived on it while I wrote. Forty books later I’d say the gamble paid off. Read More

Writers Retreats to Beat Writers Block
By Jennie Marts

Being stuck on your current WIP is no fun! Especially if you are on a deadline. It’s even worse if you are a ‘fly-by-the-seat-of-your-Pantser’ and you’re waiting for the story to come to you and your characters voices are deafeningly silent in your ears.

 A favorite trick of mine is to set up my own mini-writing-retreat. For me, all a writing retreat needs is a notebook, a purple pen, a Snickers bar, a bag a Cheetos, two Diet Cokes and a quiet place to write. Sometimes I bring my laptop, but that makes it hard because then I get Cheetos-dust on the keyboard.

Changing the place you write and your writing medium are great ways to change-up and often ‘charge-up’ your writing energy. Take a break from your laptop and your desk and change your surroundings. Get a new perspective with a new landscape. Take a blanket and go to a park. Enjoy the breeze as you sit in the grass and write a description of the town where your story is.  Read More

Home Sweet Home By Jude Willhoff

Blog Diva - Thursday, February 27, 2014

Where’s Your Home Sweet Home?

Some say that home is where the heart is. My home sweet home is where ever I’m at with my honey. Married at an early age, we’ve grown up together. The house is empty when he’s not here and he feels the same when I’m away. It’s a blessing to be loved and appreciated. That’s what we all want. Jenna Myers has to solve a mystery, a murder and catch an arsonist before she can find her home sweet home. Where is your home sweet home?

Home Sweet Home

Jenna Myers inherits an apartment complex in Denver, Colorado after her father dies in a car crash. Even though there is evidence of foul play, the crime goes unsolved. She breaks off her engagement, sells her bookstore in Cedar Falls, and moves to Denver to manage her real estate investments. A few months later, a friend and tenant is murdered in her apartment complex. Jenna suspects the murder is related to her father’s death but it’s a case of mistaken identity. The killer is after her.  Read More

The Return By A.L. Parks

Wine and Romance

I’m A.L. Parks, and I have published two books, and working on a third to be released this summer (fingers crossed). The first two are contemporary romances, and the third will be my first foray into romantic suspense. So, since I am a new author, and many of you may not have heard of me, let alone my books, I was trying to come up with a more creative way to introduce you to them…and this is what I came up with. I love to read…and I love wine.

Wine that goes best with my books:

Bereaved bride Abby Clark is tortured by visions of the fatal crash that took her fiancé on their wedding day. She succumbs to a dark existence where loneliness, sadness and nightmares dwell; until handsome, brooding Bryce Holden walks through the door of her favorite coffee shop, wearing the same cloak of despair and grief. Abby discovers in Bryce someone who understands love and loss, and soon their close friendship grows into a deep love. But ghosts make strange bedfellows, and Abby is forced to battle the tormenting images that continue to haunt her, and confront the ethereal presence of a beloved wife to protect her future with Bryce. Read More

Mint Juleps And Justice By Nancy Naigle

Blog Diva - Monday, February 17, 2014

Transferring from her old position had been one of the hardest to decisions Brooke Justice had faced. Those farmers back in Virginia Beach had taught her as much as she had them in the beginning. College hadn’t prepared her for the real-life problems farmers faced, but she’d been a quick study and they’d taken her under their wing. She loved that job, but her separation from Keith had gotten out of control and putting some miles between them seemed like the right thing to do when the opportunity arose.
Brooke gathered a stack of soil sample kits and a notebook with the list of her appointments for the day, then grabbed the keys to the truck the county provided for their use. She headed out the back door of the Main Street office where the truck was parked.

The little white four-wheel drive pickup was much more suitable to the roads than her own car. Many of the roads were still unpaved in this county. In Virginia Beach they'd provided her with a vehicle, too, only it was a big twelve-seater passenger van. It was a bear to maneuver and forget about parking it. Read More
