April Tweet What You Read

Welcome again to my short cut for tweeting what books I have read and movies I have seen. As a writer, I love to read across all genres. As a Romance writer, I enjoy finding the romance elements in the stories I read. However, my first read for the month is a hot Romance that I enjoyed more than I expected to.

Tweet What You Read!

Once again, I am making my conscious feel better by blogging about the books I read and that, in turn, goes out to Twitter feeds all over the planet. I also include movies because, dudes and dudettes, we are living in a visual world. Do you see what I did there? My excuse for this blog is that I have been sick for 3 weeks and my head isn’t sure where it’s attached right now. If at all. The antibiotics, they do nothing!

No Lines for You!

I read Sense and Sensibility in high school when I had just discovered Jane Austin and couldn’t get enough of her writing. That was many decades ago. Since then, I have watched the 1995 movie version several times. I think that I have a good excuse for not noticing then the differences between book and movie. Now I am listening to an unabridged version and had a bit of a shock when certain characters were introduced. Continue reading “No Lines for You!”

Tweet What You Read!

Welcome to the January 2019 edition of what I read since (checks last blog about tweets) November! I also include movies I’ve watched, either on DVD or at the movie theater. Because I am good like that. Also, this will be a record for me in case I get a chance to go on Amazon and actually post reviews. I wish I was good like that. Reviews and tweets about books are what keep Romance writers moving forward in the ranks. Continue reading “Tweet What You Read!”

The Villain of the Piece

Besides reading books, I like to fill my driving time with audiobooks. Right now, I’m finishing up The House of Secrets by Brad Metzler and Tod Goldberg. I love the narration by Scott Brick and January LaVoy. But the best part is the dive into early American history, the complex relationship between George Washington and Benedict Arnold, and the suggestion that we Americans have not been taught all the truth that lays there between the pages of history.

Romance Writers Want to be Hookers

After the amazing Maggie Marr spoke to my RWA chapter in September, our afternoon speaker was Debbie Decker. She’s the author of the Key to Her Heart series and a Speech Pathologist. She also works at a food pantry and a regular judge at the California Dreamin’ Hooker Contest. No, authors are not judged on how many tricks they can turn in a weekend. Continue reading “Romance Writers Want to be Hookers”

Hollywood Calling! Part One

September was a great month for my local chapter of Romance Writers of America. We had the pleasure of listening to Maggie Marr who has one of those bios I love because it’s funny and sharp. And she’s a Hollywood Insider. I get goosebumps just thinking about it. She probably knows Brad and Johnny and Leo and George. Sigh. Continue reading “Hollywood Calling! Part One”
