I get that life is so hectic nowadays that it’s easy to sign up for a dating website. You can reach out even while you’re plugging away at yet another ten hour shift at the workplace from hell. Take a pic, share some thoughts about you...

This Friday, we are welcoming Sylvia May to the blog as our final Featured Author, for the time being. I just wanted to take a moment to thank every author who took the time to answer my manic little list of questions, and sharing their thoughts about writing. It was a fun few months, and I hope to do another burst of features in the near future. Now, back to Miss Sylvia, who I am hoping will let me crash on her couch for a month or two or ten as I escape from reality and hit the beautiful be...

Let's kick off our February Featured Author Spotlights with Traci Angrighetti. I have two things to say about this interview: 1. This might be the cutest cover I've seen in ages. Love how eye-grabbing it is, and 2. I will never look at silkworms the same way again! And off we go.... Who are you and why are you here?

The reason I’m here is kind of funny. I have an Italian language and literature blog, so I’m always reading books in Italian. One day I came across a romantic mystery by Gabriel...
