Time once again for moment you’ve been waiting breathlessly for — the Marketing for Romance Writers blog hop. That means it’s okay to breathe now, folks. This week, the writing prompt is: Ten Years from Now My first reaction to this prompt is that I use teabags. No tea leaves to read. But here’s my Top […]

More wine? #MFRWHooks

This week I’m joining another Marketing for Romance Writers blog hop: Book Hooks. Writers share the first few sentences of their works in hopes of luring you in. Here’s the opening of The Midas Rush, my first science fiction romantic comedies, back when I was marketing more as science fiction than romance. “More wine?” asked […]

The perpetual struggle to be productive #MFRWwriter

Time once again for the Marketing for Romance Writers blog. This week, the writing prompt is: A Day in My Life I’ve left the rat race, so my days tend to be similar. An ideal day: I didn’t stay up too late reading last night, so I’m awake and raring to go by 9:00. (You […]

Outside of a dog #MFRW

The year-long Marketing for Romance Writers blog hop is into its 30th week. For this week, the writing prompt is: Paperback, eBook or Audio No contest. I’m still prefer books made of real paper.  Perhaps a third of my reading is done on my Kindle, and if I take a car trip I’ll be sure to have […]

Warm fuzzies #MFRW

I’ve been with the year-long Marketing for Romance Writers blog hop for over four months. By now, it’s become a weekly habit.  For this week, the writing prompt is: My Favorite Holiday I feel like I’m writing a school essay, with its concomitant predictability, but … Christmas. Not because of the commercial aspects. Tinsel, flashing lights, presents, […]

My spiritual home #mfrw

It’s all downhill from here; we’re more than halfway through the year-long Marketing for Romance Writers blog hop. For week 27, the writing prompt is: The Most Beautiful Place I’ve Been This is the easiest yet. Banff. Not the port in Scotland, the national park in Canada. The first time I saw those mountains, awe filled my […]

Because writers are crazy #MFRW

Imagine that — we’re halfway through the year-long Marketing for Romance Writers blog hop. For week 26, the writing prompt is: Why I Write Fame? Fortune? Uh, no. The latter would be welcome, of course, but there are easier and more surefire ways to get rich. Robbing banks. Printing your own money. Becoming a CEO. The real […]

Over and Over and Over #MFRW

For week 25 of the Marketing for Romance Writers blog hop, the prompt is: Favorite Books to Read I’m a re-reader.  That means if I like a book, I’ll it more than once.  If I really, really like it, I’ll read it a dozen or more times.  My record is for Dune, by Frank Herbert, which […]

Boring food? #MFRW

For week 24 of the Marketing for Romance Writers blog hop, the prompt is: If I could eat ONE last meal What the heck?  Have I been condemned to death without even knowing it? I suppose if it’s my last meal it should be something with tons of butter and eggs and artery-clogging foods. Or maybe, since […]
