Fangtastic Friday Welcomes Veronica Scott

I don’t read many stories set in Ancient Egypt, and it’s a time period I thoroughly enjoy. Check out Veronica Scott’s new book, Priestess of the Nile. It’s fascinating.

Bewitched, Blooded and Bewildered: A Bad Witch Story

It’s been crazy around here. I work for the local university as my day job, so there’s end of semester madness mixed in with the holiday rush. (Speaking of the end of year shenanigans, if you haven’t already voted in the┬áBest of the Best Cover Clash, go vote now!) Admist all the crazy I’ve been … Continue reading

The Dreaded “S” Word

Synopsis. The word should have its own ominous anthem, like hearing “The Imperial March” when Darth Vader walks onscreen. It’s a universal truth that authors hate writing synopses. I’m not entirely sure why this is, though at the moment I’m guessing that there’s a reason synopsis and Satan both start with “s”. It’s evil trying … Continue reading

Daydreams, Nightmares and Flights of Fancy

What inspires you? I’m often inspired by dreams, both good and bad. More than one nightmare has helped create a villain or a fight scene in my writing. The hero in Blood, Smoke and Mirrors was inspired by a dream–except that it wasn’t my dream, it was my husband’s. I happily took his idea and … Continue reading

Evil Authors and Angsty Heroes

This is why I’m addicted to vampire romance, because if a character’s been around for a few centuries … Continue reading

With A Little Help From My Friends

They say that everyone’s a critic, and in the intarweb age, that’s certainly true. But as a writer, I’ve come to believe that every manuscript needs a critic. I couldn’t live without my critique group and my beta readers, because I need someone to tell me “Hey, that’s a bad idea.” And, more importantly, they … Continue reading

Sequelitis

I’m gearing up for Emily’s release next month and the Lori Foster Reader & Author Get Together in June, but I’m also writing and editing. My project for last National Novel Writing Month was a sequel to Blood, Smoke and Mirrors, and I’ve finally gotten the draft out and started polishing it up. A bit … Continue reading

With A Romantic Storyline

see more dog and puppy pictures Romance sells. There’s a reason that romance dominates fiction sales: because romance readers are awesome. They’re smart, they’re loyal, and they’re voracious. They also love to party, and many fans and authors will be kicking up their heels at the Romantic Times Booklovers convention in Los Angeles this week. … Continue reading

Doing Your Homework

Authors have all sorts of homework. Edits, promotion, writing new drafts, checking Twitter, and so on and so forth. Research is a new homework I’ve been encountering lately. My May release, The Importance of Being Emily, is both paranormal and historical romance, and I’m not afraid to admit that I’m a little scared. From what … Continue reading
