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 don't think it will be forever, just enough to take some time for myself and accomplish other tasks...

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? Then, there’s the fact that romance novels are written for women only. Aren’t they? Maybe once upon a time. Now? That would be debatable. But consider, at least for the purpose of this post, that romance novels aren’t specifically written, NOT for men. Men read. As a matter of fact, men read a lot. And contrary to popular belief, a lot of men read.

Heroes in Disguise: a guest post by Kelle Z. Riley

The concept of disguises dates back much further than our Man-of-Steel. Nearly every culture has elements of disguise in their rituals and religious expressions, as well as in their forms of entertainment. From morality plays to masquerade balls, Samhain to Shakespeare, disguised figures exist in both culture and entertainment. Disguise, apparently, has deep psychological things to say about us, too.
