Spotlight & #Giveaway Dancing With Detective Danger by Lynn Crandall

Uncovering secrets and exposing truth are all in a day’s work for private investigator Sterling Aegar. But when her latest case threatens to reveal her own buried feelings for an old love, Sterling runs for cover.

A body in the bathtub and pleas from a jilted wife to find her wayward husband mean a welcome break from the usual humdrum cases Sterling and her sister, Lacey, are called to investigate. But when Sterling’s old flame, Detective Ben Kirby, walks into the murder scene, she feels her world spin out of control.

Interview & #Giveaway for Taming Johnny by Kaylie Newell

I'm so happy to have Kaylie (one of my writing pals) here and talking about her latest release, Taming Johnny.

What was the spark or initial idea that started your book?

What was your favorite part of writing this book? 
Finishing it! This was a doozy as far as difficult books go.I told my editor it was exactly like Johnny himself- fighting me every step of the way.But I’m so glad I didn’t give up.What a ride!Johnny Street is now one of my all time favorite heroes.He’s so sexy and damaged.Yummy.
What is your favorite line f…

RWA 2013

I'm heading off to RWA Nationals in Atlanta in less than two weeks. Haven't been to a writers conference since I attended RWA Nationals in San Francisco about five years ago. Had a great time then and am hoping to have a great time and learn a lot this year as well. I'll only be there for two of the three days (missing Friday to pick my daughter up from camp one state over).

Anyone else heading to RWA Nationals or any other writers conferences this year?
