Jared Martin needed to know he wasn’t playing a game. The way he’d suffered disgrace at the hands of that man was unacceptable. He wanted his honor back.

Jacquie Biggar


Everybody has to grieve, or remember, or honor . . . hell, I don’t know. We all have our own ways to cope with losing a loved one.

Claire Gem


Whenever I had visited, she waved me to the head of the table, an honor in an Italian household.

Joanne Guidoccio


Hair mattered for nothing, and if hers stayed white it would be a badge of honor.

Kathryn Jane


Her mother’s chocolate sheet cake, banana pudding, and apple pie honored her children even though only one would be present for the 4th of July celebrations.

On Planting Red Herrings


Joanne Guidoccio​ with the origins of red herrings on the Sisterhood of Suspense​ #blog.

sisterhood of suspense

When I shared an early draft of A Season for Killing Blondes, a beta reader complimented me on my use of red herrings and suggested the title could also be considered a red herring.

Puzzled, I asked for clarification.

She explained, “A red herring is a literary device that leads readers toward a false conclusion. Glancing at the title, I expected to read a thriller about a serial killer who had designated a specific time period for the Rampage.” She winked. “That’s definitely not the case here.”

A bit worried, I wondered if I was misleading my readers. Would they expect a thriller and be disappointed when my novel turned out to be a cozy?

She assured me that the title was well-suited to a cozy mystery that featured a brunette lottery winner as the primary suspect and four dead blondes killed during a two-week period. And she doubted…

REVIEW:

Skating on Thin Ice- USA Today Bestselling Author Jacquie Biggar
Review: Robbie Cheadle- Amazon Reviewer

This book is the perfect mixture of romance with an action packed story line to keep you turning the pages. The author does a great job of drawing the reader into the world of ice hockey and the murky world of match fixing and deals with the mob. Mac Wanowski is a champion ice hockey player and, with him on board, his team looks set to win the season. This does not suit everyone and Mac is seriously injured while playing in…

An Interview with the wonderful, Teagan Ríordáin Geneviene


A rare interview with the wonderful Teagan Riordain Geneviene on Kevin Cooper’s must read #blog!

Author & Songwriter Kevin Cooper

I’ve been planning on trying to coax… I mean invite Teagan
over to my blog for a nice little chat and a coffee without spilling the beans
(I know, can’t help myself) about my intention to spread some gossip across the
globe afterwards. The problem I had was exactly how to go about it. I mean, we
all know that Teagan is er, kinda, well… Ooh,what’s the word? Different,
special, peculiar…
(The list
goes on and on into the night.)

UNIQUE!That’s it! As I was saying, Teagan is
very unique. (In the nicest way possible of course.) Er, where was I anyway?
(Reads back over what he started to say hours before…) Ah yes, my dilemma of

cats…

I watched Jake’s crazy exterminator antics. Usually, most girls avoided killing the critters, not manly he-men. “You could try—”

Vicki Batman


The thought of her in bed with another man had the predictable effect of making him see red, jealousy twisting his gut into tight knots. Even though he hadn’t wanted her sexually in a long time, she was still his, God-dammit.

Jacquie Biggar


Both Conner and Jacob’s whistles split the air. Mercy scowled, and Daniel had to tamp down a flare of jealousy that surprised even him.

Claire Gem


Whenever I had thought of introducing the two men, I feared my feelings for David would provoke Carlo’s jealousy and lead to a break-up.

Joanne Guidoccio


”Do you always kiss your jockey, or just that…

Here is my interview with Caleb Pirtle III


Click over to Fiona Mcvie’s blog to learn more about bestselling author Caleb Pirtle.

Hello and welcome to my blog, Author Interviews. My name is Fiona Mcvie.

Let’s get you introduced to everyone, shall we? Tell us your name.

Caleb Pirtle III

Fiona : What motivates you to write, and how do you get started?

I write for one reason. I can’t keep a secret. I am totally obsessed with hanging around my characters and finding out what secrets they carry with them, what secrets are buried deep in their past. More often than not, those secrets are tangled together to form the basic plot of the story. I don’t care if my hero is tall, dark, and handsome or blonde, sexy, and beautiful. If they don’t have a secret worth keeping and worth stealing, they never show up in the novel. When I start writing, I have already gotten to know my characters and their secrets, so I simply write the first sentence…
