The Cliché of Romance is a Cliché

“OMG! Your story is such a cliché! Like the man fell in love with the woman! It’s SO been done before.”  All romance writers can attest to statements such as this. It’s not so much painful as it is annoying.   Dear Reader, You are picking up a ROMANCE novel. There is a disclaimer that this… Read More The Cliché of Romance is a Cliché

TRYST – New Adult debut by ALEX ROSA – Cover Reveal

Eons ago (or two years ago) I became friends with this chick named Alex Rosa. She was just starting the process of self-publishing her first book Emotionally Compromised and I wrote for free, trying to figure out if this was a hobby or something more. Now, I’ve self-published my second book and editing my third while… Read More TRYST – New Adult debut by ALEX ROSA – Cover Reveal

The Modern Day Love Letter

Ahhh … the text message. Done away with the long script with a quill and a jar of ink. Done away with the epic letters with declarations of love.

Sex & Books

  In the two years that I have officially proclaimed myself as a “romance writer,” I have come across two things: Women like reading about sex. Men don’t like their women reading about sex. The Hypocrisy: These same men have all been to a strip club and/or have watched porn. “No,” you say. “This is… Read More Sex & Books
