Rebecca Zanetti | When the Voices Think I’m Crazy
Author Guest / April 3, 2014

I think authors hear voices. Different ones at different times, all wanting their stories to be told. Sometimes I’m a little wary with the voices and story ideas…but these days, things are crazy in the real world. During the release time of RISING ASSETS, right now, we are moving houses. With a hubby, two kids, two dogs and an insane cat, I am trying to move after living in our current home for twelve years. I am losing my mind, but I’ve found a lot of lost socks. We’re only moving a few miles away, up on a mountain with a gorgeous view of a lake and more mountains that reach all the way to Canada. This is my dream house, and I really want to move. At least I thought I did until I actually started boxing up stuff. My son packed his room this weekend to take up to the new house, and thus has been wearing the same shorts to school all week. My daughter has packed nothing, and frankly, I’m afraid to look under her bed. There have to be monsters down there…or more socks. Lots of socks. The cat is running around like he’s on…

Carolyn Brown | The Red-Hot Chili Cook-Off
Author Guest / April 3, 2014

Thank you Miz Sara and everyone at Fresh Fiction for letting me make a stop here on my recipe blog tour for THE RED-HOT CHILI COOK-OFF. I’m so excited about the second book set in Cadillac, Texas. There’s a brand new lingerie shop in town called Bless My Bloomers, run by three cousins, Carlene, Alma Grace and Patrice. And things are heating up at the panty shop because Carlene found some bikini under pants in her husband Lenny Joe’s briefcase and they damn sure did not belong to her. Now Alma Grace is the president of the Easter program committee at the local church and she’s headed for a committee meeting. In Texas, folks don’t just go to a committee meetings empty handed. No, sir! It’s a fine time to take along food and Alma Grace arrived at the church fellowship hall with a platter of jalapeno poppers and a dozen peanut butter cupcakes. Lord, no, Alma Grace didn’t make them herself! Alma Grace could sweet talk a nun into a black lace corset and fishnet hose but she couldn’t make toast without it resulting in sirens and fire trucks. God bless her mama’s cook. An excerpt about what happened…

Joanne Kennedy | Announcing…a new series to love! The Cowboys of Decker Ranch
Author Guest / April 3, 2014

HOW TO HANDLE A COWBOY is the first volume in my Cowboys of Decker Ranch series. I just finished the first draft of the second book in the series (HOW TO WRANGLE A COWBOY) and I can’t believe how much fun I’m having. It’s obvious that romance readers love to read series books, and writers love to write them. From Nora Roberts to J.R. Ward, from Debbie Macomber to E.L. James, authors are giving readers what they crave: books that allow them to really get to know a group of characters, so opening the next book is like joining old friends. Books that give readers a sense of place, and create towns they want to return to again and again. Books where favorite characters drop in for surprise appearances. I wrote six stand-alone books before I embarked on a series. Too many times, I’d read books that were second or third in a series and found myself confused, or felt left out of little treats that were clearly “in-jokes” for returning readers. I’d also read books where the author spent page after page of Book Two summarizing the first book in the series. I read one where nothing new happened…
