Here’s a roundup of the blogs I visited in promoting my first book, A Lady Awakened. (In case you’ve read it, and want to know what I have to say for myself.)
Manga Maniac Cafe – I talk about the book that turned me on to reading and the mundane way I like to spend my spare time. Also, I quote Lady Chatterley’s Lover.
Drunk Writer Talk – On the downside of getting great reviews (spoiler! There is no downside!), the one thing I’d like to change about my writing process, and what to watch on TV now that Friday Night Lights is no more.
Romance Novel News – The influence of other romance writers, the joy of writing bad sex, and a key turning point in A Lady Awakened.
Michelle & Leslie’s Book Picks – Random Facts About Me, Random Facts About My Hero & Heroine, and Things That Make Me Laugh. Also, I pick a favorite scene from ALA.
Dear Author – My journey to publication, a little bit about A Gentleman Undone, and lots of detail about my writing process.
RR@H Novel Thoughts – Guest post: I talk about yearning, and how it’s the engine that powers romance.
The Romance Dish – On research, non-romance reading, and my love for not-immediately-likeable characters.
Fiction Vixen – Awkward! A guest appearance at a blog where the reviewer DNF’d my book! This actually turned out to be a lot of fun, with a great discussion in comments about books, movies, & TV shows where you’ve felt out of step with popular sentiment.
“Five Things” with Elizabeth Boyle – Blogs I like, the most romantic place I’ve ever been, and embarrassing music on my MP3 player.
RT Reviews – Manuscripts hidden under the bed, why I don’t think of Theo as a rake, and how A Gentleman Undone differs from A Lady Awakened.
As the Pages Turn – Lines of dialogue or POV that typify the hero & heroine; also, foods I won’t eat.
Rose Lerner’s Blog – On transgressive heroines and movie/tv romances we enjoy. Also, Rose thought ALA‘s bad sex scenes were hot!
