Guest Post with Suzanne Johnson and Giveaway

Today I would like to welcome author Susanne Johnson to RFTC. Suzanne is on tour promoting the release of her book River Road and has stopped by to chat. Please give Suzanne a warm welcome.

Suzanne Johnson writes urban fantasy and paranormal romance from Auburn, Alabama, after a career in educational publishing that has spanned five states and six universities. She grew up halfway between the Bear Bryant Museum and Elvis' birthplace and lived in New Orleans for fifteen years, so she has a highly refined sense of the absurd and an ingrained love of SEC football and fried gator on a stick.

Guest Post with Author Eden Summers and Giveaway

Today I would like to welcome to RFTC, author Eden Summers. Eden is celebrating the release of her book, Sneaking a Peak and has stopped by to chat. Please give Eden a warm welcome.

I live in regional New South Wales, Australia with my two highly energetic sons and a husband I don't deserve (in a good way).

I've been an avid romance reader for years, falling in love with fictional hero's left, right and center. It wasn't until early 2011 that I decided to add to my pastime of reading and reviewing and take my own writing seriously.

I joined the Australian Romance Writers Association.

The hunky men and sassy women who dominate my daydreams are now being put to paper, eagerly awaiting their moment in the limelight.

Hopefully one day in the near future I will have something hot and sweet published and available to share with the world.

Interview with Liz Crowe and Giveaway

Today I would like to welcome author Liz Crowe to RFTC. Liz is celebrating the release of Escalation Clause, book 6 in her Stewart Realty series and has stopped by to answer some questions. Please give Liz a warm welcome.

Microbrewery owner, best-selling author, beer blogger and journalist, mom of three teenagers, and soccer fan, Liz lives in the great Midwest, in a major college town. Years of experience in sales and fund raising, plus an eight-year stint as an ex-pat trailing spouse, plus making her way in a world of men (i.e. the beer industry), has prepped her for life as erotic romance author.

When she isn't sweating inventory and sales figures for the brewery, she can be found writing, editing or sweating promotional efforts for her latest publications.

Her groundbreaking romance subgenre, “Romance for Real Life,” has gained thousands of fans and followers who are interested less in the “HEA” and more in the “WHA” (“What Happens After?”)

Her beer blog is nationally recognized for its insider yet outsider views on the craft beer industry. Her books are set in the not-so-common worlds of breweries, on the soccer pitch and in high-powered real estate offices. Don’t ask her for anything “like” a Budweiser or risk painful injury.

Interview with Author Natale Stenzel and Giveaway

Today I would like to welcome to RFTC, author Natale Stenzel. Natale is currently on tour promoting the release of her book Wedding Dress For Sale and has stopped by to answer a few questions. Please give Natale a warm welcome.

Born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, Natale Stenzel endured your average childhood with two brothers to annoy and parents to baffle. She attended the University of Missouri-Columbia, earning bachelor's degrees in English literature and magazine journalism. At this logical point in time, she decided that being a reporter or technical writer did not appeal to her in the least. But she tried.

She moved to Baton Rouge, Louisiana, did some business and technical-type writing, married her adorable engineering geek, then quit the tech writing job to churn out babies. At home full time and uncomfortable in June Cleaver mode, she tried her hand at book-length fiction.

She spent several years shooting in the dark, writing her heart out only to face rejection after rejection. Then, after a move to lovely central Virginia, she sold her first book in July 2002 at a Romance Writers of America conference in Denver, Colorado (Forget Prince Charming, Harlequin Flipside, November 2003). In total, she published four romantic comedies with Harlequin Flipside.

Her fifth book, PANDORA'S BOX (to be released in February 2008) is the first in a series of funny paranormal romances to be published by Dorchester for its Love Spell line. Sequels are scheduled for release in August 2008 and February 2009.

Interview with Author Rachel Lyndhurst and Giveaway

Today I would like to welcome Rachel Lyndhurst to RFTC. Rachel is celebrating the release of her book The Spanish Billionaire’s Hired Bride and has stopped by to answer a few questions. Please give Rachel a warm welcome.

I write full-time now my children are at school, but I'm still a teeny bit proud of my law degree and accountancy qualifications. I've also had a lot of fun in the past working in the space industry, pharmaceuticals, insurance, a supermarket, a bus station, a railway depot, and a lingerie department.

I live, and write, surrounded by laundry and old newspapers most of the time with my daughter, son and The Exec in Fareham, on the south coast of England. Sometimes I can smell the sea from my back garden and I have grand designs on a luxurious garden office one day. Or a castle, I'm not fussy.

When I'm not working, I do enjoy a good rummage through a decent antique shop, and popping into Sainsbury’s. Oh, and wine and expensive lipstick are non-negotiable.

Interview with Maxine Mansfield and Giveaway

Today I would like to welcome author Maxine Mansfield to RFTC. Maxine is celebrating the recent release of her book Tempted by the Storm and has stopped by to answer a few questions. Please give Maxine a warm welcome.

Maxine Mansfield writes romances in many different forms from her easy chair in the far northern state of Alaska, where the summer days are long and the winter nights even longer. She has one very special man, three equally special adult children, and six delightful grandchildren in her life. Not to mention a very bossy and verbal African Grey parrot called Gabriel.

Guest Post with Author Sara Daniels and Giveaway

Today I would like to welcome to RFTC author Sara Daniels. Sara is celebrating the recent release of her book More Than a Fantasy and has stopped by to chat. Please give Sara a warm welcome.

I write what I love--irresistible romance, captivating small-town drama, and quirky characters in romance fiction. I write fiction to entertain but also to give people hope and a belief that everything can and will turn out happily ever after.

On the personal side, I'm a frazzled maid, chauffeur, and personal assistant (aka mom). I tried a stint as a landlord of two uninvited squirrels. (The children's book The Bravest Squirrel Ever by my alter-ego Sara Shafer is the squirrel's fictionalized version of that experience!) I'm crazy about country music and the drama of NASCAR. And I have my very own happily-ever-after romance with my hero husband.

Follow my blog, like me on Facebook or email me for the latest updates on my books and writing projects or to debate the best race car drivers!

Interview with Author Soraya Lane and Giveaway

Today I want to welcome back to the blog author Soraya Lane. Soraya is currently on tour for her book The Navy Seal's Promise and has stopped by to answer a few questions. Please give Soraya a warm welcome.

As a child, Soraya dreamed of becoming an author, recreating the types of stories she devoured day and night. Fast forward more than a few years, and Soraya is now living her dream. Working as a freelance writer and now a professional author too, she writes every day and loves her job. Soraya describes being a Harlequin Mills & Boon author as “the best career in the world”, and she hopes to be writing heart-warming, emotional romances for many years to come.

Soraya loves spending her days thinking up characters for romance stories, and her home is a constant source of inspiration. She lives with her own real life hero and son on a small farm in New Zealand, surrounded by animals and with an office overlooking a field where their horses graze.

Marquita met her husband aka Hot Builder at Sonic when they were in high school. She suggests this location to all of her single friends in search of a good man -- and if that doesn't work, they can console themselves with cheesy tatertots. She lives in North Carolina in a very, very small town with Hot Builder and their two children.
