Top Ten Tuesday: Please Just Stop the Series

Slightly cheating for this week’s top ten, but I hope you’ll forgive me. Back in October I wrote a post for Books Rock My World that has a lot to do with the topic for this week. If you didn’t know I write for that site, now you do know. Unless you hated one of my articles, in which case haha, no, that’s totally another SE White. It’s a very common name. Don’t flame me. Anyway. Leaving a series unfinished is a guilt…

Author Toolbox: Is Paying for a Facebook Ad Worth It?

Exposure isn’t just something that will kill you while hiking. For authors, it’s a coveted, elusive treasure. Like Atlantis? Let’s call it Atlantis. It’s well-concealed, no one knows if it’s real for sure, and you’ll most likely run out of air before you find it. Sounds about right. In the quest for some exposure I swallowed my pride and forked money over to the social behemoth. I decided to go with Facebook for two main reasons. First, it might not…

Top Ten Tuesday: Travel Bug Edition

If a book is well written, you disappear into the world of the story, right? At least, that’s part of the magic for me. I love being whisked away to unreal worlds, or to a real place magically re-imagined, or just a plain old real city. This week, top ten Tuesday is all about the books that Awaken the Travel Bug in Me. I don’t have ten books for this list, mostly because I got carried away by whole geographical…

Is a Book Con Worth It?

I recently attended my very first convention, the Romantic Times Convention in Reno, Nevada. As an introduction to a SUPER new scene, this was nice and gentle. I’ll do my best to give you the pros and cons and lead up to my answer to the question: was it worth it? Pros for going: Discount option available with the FANtastic day pass. The RT convention includes this wonderful option for a one day fan pass that was steeply discounted at 55$ (USD). I’m not…

Guest Post: Please Welcome Adriana Kraft!

Say hello to my fellow eXtasy Books author, Adriana! She’s saying goodbye to a long-running series about a modern-day Aphrodite who brings couples together by getting all parties involved in a good, sexy romp. Megan Keenan, our friendly goddess of love, has been uniting couples for plenty of books now but this is her last, best adventure.

Top Ten Tuesday, Best Character Names

To sign up or find other blogs participating, head over here to That Artsy Reader Girl.com. For Top Ten Tuesday this week I am shamelessly giving you some Harry Potter spam. I’m a proud Potterhead, and I’m always happy to show my love. Here are ten of my favorite character names from the Wizarding world. J.K. Rowling is particularly good at using root/Latin to imbue her character names with tons of meaning. I love how many hidden clues there are in all…

Romancelandia Has Your Back

Pro Life Tip 1: The internet is forever. Screenshots exist. Pro Life Tip 2: Romance authors and readers are fierce, badass ladies who take zero shit. Combine the two and what do you get? Right now, you get #cockygate. For anyone unfamiliar, an indie author with an erotic series centered around the word “cocky” in the title, went and trademarked the word “cocky”. Can you trademark a word that is used by millions of people and appeared in plenty of…

Top Ten Tuesday With a Lovely Yellow Hue

Top Ten Tuesdays started in 2010 on The Broke and the Bookish  and moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. Make fun lists about literary things using the topics provided, or go rogue and make up your own. Basically, if you’re a bookworm, come booknerd with us! My favorite color is yellow. It’s the color of sunshine, hope, happiness. It’s an energetic color and it makes me feel positive. Also, I’m pretty laid back, really value loyalty, and live for sweet buttery…
