Hey Fresh Fiction readers! I’m so happy to be here participating in the title challenge for my new release, FEEL THE FIRE. This is book 3 in my Hotshots series about smoke jumpers and wildfire fighters, but it also stands alone well. We met Tucker briefly in book 2, HIGH HEAT, and you’ll see small easter eggs from the couples of books 1 and 2 in FEEL THE FIRE. In FEEL THE FIRE, I wanted to look at some of the people behind the scenes in Wildf...

The screaming started at three in the morning. Tabitha had never heard a human being howl in that way before. It was like the screeching of an animal caught in a trap and it was answered by shouts, distant, echoing. Tabitha couldn’t tell whether they were cries of comfort or anger or mockery. The screams subsided into sobs but even these were amplified by the metal, the doors, the stairs and floors. Tabitha felt they were echoing inside her hea...

Jen: What inspired you to write In The Deep? Loreth: Thanks for hosting me, Jen. In The Deep was inspired by a visit to my brother who lives in a small oceanside town in New South Wales, Australia. He’s a big wave surfer, and a man of the sea in every way, so of course we went out deep sea fishing in his tiny boat. When we were ten miles off the coast, heaving about on the white-veined swells of the deep blue waters of the Tasman Sea, with the ...

T is for truth, the heroine’s strength and downfall as well. In romance, in her medical career, even in prickly family matters, she cannot help but spout out the truth the moment it comes into her head. H is for happy endings, something that nearly everyone at Crestwicke lacks, and only a few will find by the end. E is for epic love story, the sort that has blossomed out of the dry stones of Crestwicke, between two unknown people connected by a...

Hi, Lyssa Kay! Welcome to Fresh Fiction. Please tell us about yourself and your new book, CRAZY STUPID BROMANCE: Thank you so much for having me! I’m sitting in my home office in Michigan, where I write full-time with a very spoiled Maltese at my feet (when he’s not sleeping ON MY DESK). He has been at my side through every Bromance book, including this one. I’m so excited for readers to get their hands on Noah and Alexis’s story in CRAZY...

THE THORNE CHRONICLES started out on a hot strip of the 405 in traffic, where heat-induced frustration made me blurt out, “I want to write a feminist Sleeping Beauty story with a mohawked punk 13th fairy! In a spiked leather jacket! And what if she gives the princess a bullshit detector?” It’s fair to observe that I was already planning to break a few genre conventions. There are punk fairies in a pre-industrial, pseudo-European...

Jedi Knight or Wookie
Guests / May 25, 2005

I just finished a book that would have made GREAT reading while waiting in line for Episode III. Too bad that’s not when I was reading it. In her latest release, THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UGLY MEN I’VE DATED, Shane Bolks references Star Wars more times than any die hard fan wearing a cheap black cape, shiny black mask and breathing heavy would. She cites Yoda as one of the greatest philosophers of all time and classifies me...

Hissy Fit
Guests / May 25, 2005

I am on vacation this week, enjoying a visit from some of my family, but I have been squeezing in time to read. It helps that 2 of my sisters who are visiting a big readers too! I just finished Hissy Fit by Mary Kay Andrews this morning. I thoroughly enjoyed every page! I am looking forward to getting a lot more reading done on Sat. because we are going to the lake for swimming and sailing. I will be slathering on the sunscreen and catc...

It’s Hump Day
Guests / May 25, 2005

For those who might not know Hump day is Wednesday, becuase there’s 2 days of the week already passed, and only 2 days of the week left until the glorious weekend. It’s going to be a three day weekend, and I hope many of you have some wonderful plans. If all goes according to plan my mom is coming Friday afternoon. She’s supposed to be letting me know for sure as she had an angioplasty last week, and was to have seen t...

Midnight Musings
Guests / May 25, 2005

Or, why I sometimes like historical fiction more than anything else… I’m babysitting a script so I thought I’d take the time to ponder on yesterday’s reading since today my reading time was limited to menus and map directions. Had lunch with my friend and co-worker M today and as usual, we discussed our reading. She’s stuck on a book verging on chick-lit (not her favorite by any stretch of the imagination) ...

Our family made a trip to the cinema and saw Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, one of DC’s favorite books. Even though we were the only ones laughing, a fun time was had by all. So much, the dialogue is still being quoted. Marvin the paranoid android: “Life? Don’t talk to me about life!” Mouse 1: “Rubbish, we don’t want to be happy, we want to be famous!” If you have a chance, and the line...

What are you reading?
Guests / May 23, 2005

Time for my weekly update on what I’m reading. And I’m still trying to figure out this whole loading pictures thing and this didn’t work like it was supposed to from the directions so bear with me.In print, I finished advance copies of Susan Gable’s The Pregnancy Test last week and moved on to Holly Jacobs’ Lovehandles, which I finished this weekend. Now I’m reading The Moon Witch by Linda Winstead Jo...

At the beginning of the 19th century, adventure awaits…
Guests / May 22, 2005

Well, two good paranormal books down, I also read two historicals…MR. IMPOSSIBLE by Loretta Chase and THE CHASE by Cheryl Sawyer. (Enough “chase” in that sentence?). Loretta Chase has been a favorite historical romance author of mine for years — way too many to admit here. One of my very favorite historical romances is LORD OF SCOUNDRELS and I wish I could say that MR. IMPOSSIBLE was up there with the best of the...

Spooky, ah geez, it’s just a ghost!
Guests / May 22, 2005

After my low of the week, and don’t you just hate it when you anticipate a book (or movie for that matter) and then it just doesn’t quite live up to your expectations? It’s an “okay” book or movie, but you were expecting to be blown away? Well, although my one read this week fit the description, I may have had a more open mind about the others I read. CARVED IN STONE by Vickie Taylor was a more than pleasan...

Hollows come alive….Or not…
Guests / May 22, 2005

Been a couple of days, but with work, daughter home from college, husband on vacation and Star Wars Episode III, it’s been difficult to find time to read much less yak on about it in a journal. But ha, did you think I wasn’t reading? Silly you! Finished EVERY WHICH WAY BUT DEAD on Friday. Sad to say, I thought I could finish in a single setting, but this episode, for me at least, is not as good as the first two. Either, she ...
