What’s your favorite Valentine’s Day gift – comment to enter my giveaway

It’s the month of Love and Valentine’s Day will soon be here. However, I have a different take on the holiday thanks to my very unromantic hubby. Yes, I’m a romance author married to a very pragmatic man. I love him for many things, his humor, his compassion, his devilish good looks and how intensely he loves me and our sons. But one thing I’ve learned during our marriage is not to get excited about Valentine’s Day. Apparently, it gives him hives. When we were first married he played along. I received flowers, a nice dinner and a box of chocolates and maybe some pretty …

Dealing with Disappointment and Finding the Silver Lining

*This blog post originally appeared in Delilah Devlin’s Blog on Sept. 24th, 2015 Often in our busy, 24/7, social media addicted and instant gratification existence we get caught up in high expectations for (fill in the blank) events in our lives. One day you’re rolling along, plans all laid out nice and tidy and then something happens to challenge you. Something which tests your resilience for change, and threshold for disappointment. Sound familiar? It happens to all of us. Hopefully not too often, but when it does how you react immediately after the stomach-dropping hit you just took, sets you …

NOTE: Portions of this blog first appeared on www.Jillarcher.com, October 24, 2013 How many workshops does it take to create a writer? None. How many workshops does it take to drive a new writer over the edge? For this one twelve. Good thing I only took eleven. But really, I think I lost count because there were a few free ones I’m sure I forgot. Oh, and did I mention I took four of them simultaneously within one week? No? Well pull up a chair and be prepared to be amazed. Or not. If there is one thing you should …

PLEASE NOTE:  This blog originally appeared on the Romance Writers of America FF&P Chapter Blog on September 9, 2013.

You see it has become increasingly clear that now that I’m writing seriously, as opposed to casually, I’ve become unable to read my beloved authors without having their voice throw me off my game.  Now I will confess I’ve made one exception.  I managed to finish one of Rebecca Z’s latest, but full disclosure I am a huge fan girl, plus she’s a …
