Pandora’s Box

I participated in a Pandora’s Box book discussion over at All About Romance on Sarah Morgan’s new romance Maybe This Christmas. Sarah Morgan’s Maybe This Christmas is the third in her O’Neil Brothers series. The first two (Sleigh Bells in the Snow and Suddenly Last Summer) received a B+ and an A- here at AAR.Continue reading “Pandora’s Box”

I Think I’m Not a Planner

I’ve spent the last few weeks thinking about planning my NaNoWriMo book. Please note that thinking is the key word there.

A Spirited Evening

  It’s a cool night shortly before Halloween and, in a normal suburban house, a group of people has gathered together in a dimly lit room. They sit in a circle of chairs in a living room, not unlike any other, but they are here for a rather unusual reason. Tonight, these people have comeContinue reading “A Spirited Evening”
