Q&A with American Title finalist Marie-Claude Bourque!

Tell us about your entry in the American Title contest. ANCIENT WHISPERS is a dark paranormal inspired by the poem Evangeline by Henri Longfellow (1847). It is the story of a bold immortal sorcerer and his obsession to be reunited with the fiancĂ©e he lost centuries ago. It is filled with tortured heroes, engaging and mysterious characters, intense emotions, scorching dark desires, gothic rituals and a touch of history. How long have you been writing? I’ve been writing for 14 months. What made you decide to enter the American Title contest? I had just started to enter my manuscript in RWA contests when I saw the call for entry. Since my first three chapters were polished and the contest free, I decided to give it a shot just for fun and I quickly forgot all about it. Describe your thoughts at the first moment you realized you were going to be in the contest? The first real shock I had was when I received an email from Leah Hultenschmidt telling me she had thoroughly enjoyed

Q&A with Tracy Wolff!

Give a nice welcome to Tracy Wolff! Be sure to check out her website for more information about her books, and of course, hit the bookstores to grab up her latest. When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer? I can actually tell you the exact moment, though not the day. I was in third grade and my parents had gone to the credit union near our house to apply for a car loan. They offered me the choice of coming in or waiting in the car (back in the days when that was still safe). I chose to wait in the car, but after a few minutes playing Barbie I was bored out of my mind. So I picked up a notebook and an aqua marker (all that was in the car at that moment) and began scribbling story. Halfway through my tale of rainbows and leprechauns (did I mention it was a rainy day?) I realized that I was having more fun making things up than I had ever dreamed possible. I’ve been hooked ever since. Where do you get your information or ideas for your books? I get them from the wor

AGNES AND THE HITMAN - Jennifer Crusie and Bob Mayer A Perfect 10 St. Martin's Press ISBN-10: 0-312-36305-2 ISBN-13: 978-0-312-36305-2 September 2008 Romantic Suspense South Carolina – The Present Food writer Agnes Crandall writes the Cranky Agnes column.

Q&A with Rowena Cherry!

Tell us about your newest release. Thank you for asking the most important question first. Knight's Fork is about a Knight on a quest, a Queen in need of a sperm donor, and a right royal scandal. It's a bit of a departure for me. Forced Mate (debut novel) and Insufficient Mating Material both began in the hero's point of view. In Forced Mate, the hero was listening to an astounding bit of spy footage in which the heroine made some ill-informed and politically damaging remarks about his sexual prowess. Insufficient Mating Material opened with the hero about to undergo identity-changing surgery before a shotgun wedding to a political liability wife, and worrying that his enemy's surgeons might decide that his penis was too easily recognizable to leave intact. (I do have a lot of politics and titillating scandal in my novels) Knight's Fork begins with the heroine's thoughts. She is thinking about testicles, while looking very prim, proper and regal and waiti
