‘Tis the season to reflect on the past year and look forward to the next one with renewed hope and energy (although, I’m not sure how much energy I have left after a year with active, young children).

We can all certainly find something to complain about: the bills, the household chores that never... Read more of this blog post »

Rival Gates Rival Gates's blog:
Within the walls was the castle itself. It too was a paradox. Rather than being built as a fortification, it was made to be a palace. Undoubtedly, the structure was being constructed to proclaim someone’s glory rather than protect it.
The city was a hive of congestion and urban sprawl lining a na... Read more of this blog post »

Once in her life she was happy.
A rare time of peace and love.
She holds on to those dying memories.
So old and irrelevant her remembrance.
Now what has she become?
Survivor in a nightmare of gods and machines.
Exotic form. Murderous heart.
Like some alluring hemlock sunflower.

Erotica is hot.

It's not just the sex scenes that have people hot under the collar. Erotica as a genre is selling in greater numbers than ever before. While FIFTY SHADES OF GREY was the breakout hit, other authors such as Sylvia Day and Megan Hart are well-known for their steamy tales as well.

One way to announce a new book release is to sponsor a newsletter send out by major literary magazines and book publishers. The cost is about $50.00 - $100.00 and you will reach as many as 5,000-7,000 subscribers on average. Also, best advise is to build up a local email list of friends, family,...

I started this one expecting something entirely different than what I read. Because of this, I almost put it down, but am so glad I did not. It is written for the younger readers – middle school level, I think – which leads to some of the simplified descriptions I ran into.
