My Sexy Dreamer @MySexySaturday #MySexySaturday #MSS169

Welcome to another edition of My Sexy Saturday! This week’s theme: My Sexy Dreamer. This week’s snippet comes from my epic fantasy with romantic elements, IN THE TOWER OF THE WIZARD KING. He kissed her, their lips meeting for what seemed like the first time in centuries. It was not the chaste kiss he had given her on her cheek before sending her through time. It was the kiss of passion and longing, desire and need. The kiss of a starving man. It was a kiss Fiona was all too willing to return. “What do you say we go back to my chamber and I show you how much I missed you?” A grin pulled at the corner of his mouth. “I say that’s a wonderful idea.” It had been so long since she’d been with him, her body tingled with anticipation. He took her by the hand and helped her to her feet. They left the library behind and walked through the towers toward his chamber and it reminded her of not so long ago when she walked with him the night they married. Her feelings now were not so unlike her feelings then. But this time she knew without a doubt she loved him and would stay with him. The Towers of Illyria had largely remained the same since she had been here last, which, oddly, was in her past. Even Niall’s chambers had not changed much. The same desk with the high-backed cushioned chair and the thick…

Friday Flicks: Star Wars Nerd-dom Post Here

I’m a super Star Wars nerd. I’ve been a fan since I was 5 years old when the original Star Wars came out in 1977. Dude, I am so dating myself. But who cares! Okay, I do a little. Anyway… I’m SUPER excited about the new Star Wars movie coming out this December. Yeah, yeah, yeah. I know the franchise is owned by the superpower Disney and I *know* they have billions of dollars to put behind the films and I also know that it’s hugely commercialized these days. It’s not as…special as it used to be. But I still love it. And I’m still a Han Solo fan (even though we know what happens to him in the last film…) and I’m still looking forward to Episode VIII. Even if to hear Luke finally have a line. 😉 Anyway… Have you seen the trailer? No? Then check it out here!

On #Writing Wednesday: It’s not just about love

I was recently asked this question: “Hey, do you write anything other than those love books?” My initial reaction? 😐 My actual response was, “No, I do not.” But I got to thinking about the question and then I was mad because there is so much more to romance novels than that. They are not just “love books.” They are stories about triumph, good vs. evil, relationships, beating the odds, coming of age, and many, many more themes. They could be set in space or in the Middle Ages or in Regency England or in a completely made-up land. They could be set in your hometown or a big city everyone knows. Maybe your characters is a farm boy tapped to become the next savior of the world, or a hobbit tasked with the impossible thing of destroying a fabled ring. You know these heroes–they are the every day Joes who become the hero that we, the audience, always knew they were. But just because it’s a “love” book doesn’t mean there isn’t more to it than that. I could point out annual sales of romances novels total somewhere around $1.08 billion dollars. Not bad for a love book, huh? (More statistics here and here.) My books usually have the same theme: good vs. evil, family, loyalty, honor. I love those unlikely hero stories, stories with the every day Joe who becomes the hero of the world. The little guy who turns out to be way more important than he ever thought he would be. I’m also really fond of quest stories. Pick…
