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 […]

Keep Your Nose to the Keyboard #MFRW

For week 23 of the Marketing for Romance Writers blog hop, the prompt is: Word Counts Matter. How much? How often? I’m a numbers person. Back in school, I did pretty well on standardized tests of verbal skills — but much better in number skills.  It’s no surprise, then, that I create several spreadsheets for each […]

What readers hate about books #MFRWauthor

For week 22 of the Marketing for Romance Writers blog hop, the prompt is: My Biggest Pet Peeve in a Book That’s an easy one: I hate when a novel isn’t good enough to finish.  I used to finish everything I started. No more. Nowadays a book has to earn the right to monopolize the hours […]

Jiggers, it’s da cops! #MFRWauthor

After a week’s absence, I’m back for week 21 of the Marketing for Romance Writers blog hop. This week’s prompt is: A Childhood Memory My first thought was to write about the double date on which I met my wife-to-be (she was with the other guy), but I was sixteen, thus not truly a child. So let’s […]

ROTFLMAO – MFRWauthor

For week 18, the Marketing for Romance Writers blog tour prompt is: What makes me laugh out loud The answer: not much.  I’m more of a chuckler than a guffawer. I chuckle a lot, mind you, because people can be pretty darned amusing, whether intentionally or not.  But laugh? While I laughed out loud at […]

Where in the World? #MFRWAuthor

For this week, the Marketing for Romance Writers blog tour prompt is: Top Five Places I’d Like to Visit At last, an easy topic! Uh, hold on a minute. Only five? 1 – Places with my children I visit these once a year if I can, yet they’re number one on my list. Total distance […]

Dreaming medium-sized dreams #MFRWauthor

I’m back after a week’s absence due to elbow surgery for septic bursitis. For this week, the Marketing for Romance Writers blog prompt is: My biggest dream in life This is harder than it may seem. I’ve never had one BIG DREAM, rather, a series of big dreams, like pearls on a necklace. Back in high […]

The Perils of Peggedness #MFRWauthor

For lucky week 13, Marketing for Romance Writers blog prompt is: My greatest weakness I’ve been demonstrating this weakness ever since I joined the blog hop. For the 7 guilty sins prompt, I focused on things that distract me from writing. Everyone else wrote about personal failings. For the writing process prompt, I wrote about book […]

The strength of a bald Samson #MFRWauthor

Once again, I’m joining a blog hop run by Marketing for Romance Writers (MFRW). For those new to my blog, yes, I’m a guy, and yes, I write romance. I’ve written for Silhouette, but these days I write science fiction with romance and humor. This week’s writing prompt is: My greatest strength Several years ago, I […]
