On Hiatus – SORRY

The truth I'm on a bit of a break for a while. With illnesses and numerous time constraints this year, I just can't focus on my blogs or my author newsletter the way I did in the past. I have so much on my plate, and am simply overwhelmed. But I've gone for far too long, trying to do everything on my own. I am not sure when I'll be back, if at all.

Why Men Should Read Romance: a guest post by Rebecca A. Corio

Let’s talk about romance novels for a minute. Romance novels come with a specific stigma. They’re “cheap, cheesy, trashy, not real literature”… Do any of these sound familiar?

And contrary to popular belief, a lot of men read.
