WTFckery or Not? You Decide!

Apr 30, 2017 by

Welcome to this week’s twisted WTFckery!   Some WTF book and their covers to get the ball rolling…   Historical back breaking romance at it’s best:     Sniffing her chin has never been so sexy!     Count on Chuck Tingle to take advantage of the Frye Festival fiasco:     What is the Fyre Fiasco, you may ask? “The concert, which had been promoted by the likes of models Bella Hadid, Emily Ratajkowski, and Hailey Baldwin as a weekend of luxury — tickets ranged from $1,000 to $12,000, with some VIP packages as high as $250,000 — turned out to be anything but extravagant. Instead of fancy bungalows and food prepared by celebrity chefs, festival-goers found themselves trapped in airports, sleeping in flimsy tents, and eating boxed lunches.”   2. Reebok and Nordstrom have an appealing outfit...

David Baldacci and Ruth Ware Holding Strong This Week...

Apr 29, 2017 by

Not much in terms of real excitement this week on the adult fiction list. There was an uprise of self-published authors hitting the USA Today list, but the usual suspects are here and making waves, such as David Baldacci’s The Fix with over 65,000 in combined sales, Ruth Ware’s The Woman in Cabin 10 at 30,000 +, and James Patterson’s The Black Book still holding strong in the 40,000 sale range. In terms of romance, Danielle Steel’s Magic, Nora Roberts’ The Obsession, and Slow But Cowboy by Maisey Yates are near 20,000 combined sales.  J.R. Ward’s The Chosen (hit #1 on the NYT Combined Fiction 3 weeks ago) has dropped considerably in 3 weeks, with not even 2,000 in hardcover sales, and about to drop out of the USA Today top 150 book list (what does this mean?).  ...

Guest Author Post: Behind the Curtain: One Story About Writing Diversity in Romance By Beth Kery...

Apr 28, 2017 by

Previously, I have written books where the hero and heroine were of different races, but it wasn’t necessarily a major issue to the story. When I went to write Behind the Curtain, I knew I wanted to explore a romantic relationship where the differences between the hero and heroine’s race, religion and culture were integral to the plot and conflict of the story. Behind the Curtain possesses all the hallmarks of a traditional romance, but these differences are crucial to the conflict of the love story and the development of the characters. I think one of the anxiety provoking things for an author about writing a character that comes from a different race, religion or background than our own is that we’re afraid of getting it wrong, and being disrespectful. The myth goes: You...
