Need a Little Rehvenge?

Nov 21, 2008 by

I am waiting with baited breath for JR Ward’s next book in her Black Dagger Brotherhood series, Lover Avenged, which comes out in May. The wonderful Marisa and Maria at Romance Novel TV have an interview up with JR. She even gives us a bit of information about the book, and about Rehv. What does it say about me, anxiously awaiting about a impotent, drug addicted, pimp, who is forced to sleep with his evil half...

Pride and Prejudices: Write What You Know? *Part 1*...

Nov 21, 2008 by

Katie: A few days ago, Ana from The Book Smugglers, brought to my attention one of the latest posts on Dear Author called, Does An Author have to Live It to Write It? It was in regards to how important is it for an author to write what they know, or rather experience it. Many questions have arisen between Ana, Thea, and myself such as : Does a reader care what the author’s background is? Do you care if a male author is writing a romance or if a female author is writing a gay romance where the two main characters are men? How important is it for authors to write what they know? Is it okay to break certain rules in romance? I really don’t care what an author’s background is. If they...

Untamed by Pamela Clare **Review and Contest** UPDATE!...

Nov 20, 2008 by

Untamed Though forced to fight for the hated British, Morgan MacKinnon would no more betray the men he leads than slit his own throat—not even when he was captured by the French and threatened with an agonizing death by fire at the hands of their Abenaki allies. Only the look of innocent longing in the eyes of a convent-bred French lass could make him question his vow to escape and return to the Rangers. And soon the sweet passion he awoke in Amalie had him cursing the war that forced him to choose between upholding his honor and pledging...

First Twilight Review (EW)

Nov 19, 2008 by

Entertainment Weekly has posted their review of Twilight. This is the first one I know of. This is what they thought… “If the droolingly awaited big-screen version of Twilight is any indication, sanpaku eyes are the new cheekbones. Marilyn Monroe and JFK both had sexy sanpakus (in which the white of the orb is strikingly visible below the iris), and so does Robert Pattinson, the young British heartthrob who plays Edward Cullen, Twilight’s dreamy, sculpted hunk of a teenage vampire. With pasty skin, red lips, and those peepers that pop open wide with a touch of madness, Pattinson has a look so broodingly unearthly it’s no wonder he doesn’t sprout fangs. His creepy bedroom stare is a special effect all its own. Here, as in Stephenie Meyer’s 2005 novel, Edward is Romeo, Heathcliff, James...
