Water Cooler Wednesday – Conferences

My apologies for posting this later than usual.  I'm attending a Conference in St. Cloud, MN and kind of missed my post in the flutter to leave and then attending a Conference. I'm actually the guest of my husband as he attends a conference for Agricultural Aviation.  Its an interesting thing being a guest when DH is so often my guest in a sea of female writers & readers. ...

Saucy Saturday: A Different Kind of Sexy

Hi all! It’s been a busy couple of weeks for me, between the EDJ and juggling my duties as mom and an author.  But one of the more pleasant tasks I’ve had this past week was looking for stock photos for a series I just got the rights back to.  My plan is to highly edit and expand each story, then re-release them…which of course means new shiny covers!   And since I’m expanding ...

#WatercoolerWednesday Hygge…And Fifty Shades Darker

Happy Wednesday, Romance Lovers! I subscribe to the Heroes and Heartbreakers email (I recommend it;), so when I saw a review for the world premier of the Fifty Shades Darker movie I checked it out. I'd never read the books, but the trailer had picked my interest. Overall the review is pretty positive, but what kind of blew my mind was the last paragraph in which the autho...

Saucy Saturday: Tempt me by Taste Again

temptme
I’m thinking of Food again. :) Food can create a visceral reaction. In many of my books when there is a romantic rendezvous food plays a big part of what is planned. :) I love to cook and it’s a place I go when I want to think or work something out. It can be personal or writing wise. The other day I was thinking about a scene in my book. I had to work out some stuff so I we...

Watercooler Wednesday: Making Uno Memories…

fun
I may have mentioned a time or two that I enjoy playing Uno…ok. It is more than a time or two. I may have also mentioned my family calls by the nickname Uno Queen Diva (more on what that means here). It’s a friendly tease as I enjoy Uno and well I love playing it with people. In my opinion it can give great memories of time spent playing, laughing and having fun. When my nep...

Five Novels Banned in Boston–and Elsewhere! #SaucySaturday

Hi all! Nona Raines here. I love sexy reads, don't you? I think most people do, even if they have to pretend otherwise. Women today no longer have to be embarrassed about reading erotic romance or other "unladylike" material--thank goodness we no longer live in the Victorian Era! (Though from what I understand, erotica was very popular during that era--even if it had to be enjo...

#Wednesday Watercooler: What I’ve Been Reading

What better to talk about around the Nice Girls Writing Naughty watercooler than our latest great find?
