Interview with Author, LYNN CAHOON

The road to success –

Writer’s take many paths to their goal. And the path you take is a personal decision. I watch new writers question the published members basically asking, “What should I do?” But that is a decision you should have made before you submitted to e-pubs or agents or small prints.

So today, we’re talking about building a career plan. I’ll talk about mine and maybe you can share a bit of yours and we’ll all learn.

I started being serious about novel length manuscripts in 2010. By serious, I mean finishing and submitting. I probably submitted way too soon, (rookie mistake #1) but I learn by experience, good and bad. My first book was rejected by the targeted publisher twice – rookie mistake #2.

Another manuscript written and this time, I got a revise and resubmit letter. But I thought it was a rejection. (Rookie mistake #3.)

I sent them my current manuscript which they asked for revisions on. Which I did and sent it back. People will say this is rookie mistake #4, but I disagree. The thought is you never revise without a contract. But at that stage of the game, I needed the revisions to become a stronger writer, and, my manuscript a stronger story.

Then they rejected the project. I’d been working with them for over eighteen months. I got a very nice letter, saying although they liked the revisions; it still wasn’t working for them.

I was out of town when I got the letter. I told my husband I was going to send it out one more time and if I got another rejection, I was shelving the book and going on.

The next Friday, I sent a query. I had a request for a full in less than an hour and a contract in my in box in less than a week. The same week, I got offered a contract on a novella I’d entered into a publisher’s contest. March 2012 was a very good month.

By the end of the year, I’d sold six projects. Temporary Roommates, the title releasing on April 20th was number five. I love this novella as the determination to make a difference in the world of both my hero and heroine makes me a better person.

I still have career goals out there. And I know I need to keep stories in the pipeline in order to have contracts show up in my inbox. So my focus now is to right a better story. Each and every time.

What are you striving for?


When a determined nurse and a hot intern find the perfect apartment, the same perfect apartment, they must find a way to share it for ninety days, without killing each other.

Annie Baxter has her dream job. Now, all she needs is a cheap apartment close to the hospital. Troy Saunders knows his life as an intern is all about the long hours. He doesn’t have time to play doctor to some Nurse Barbie. So when his sister finds a great apartment walking distance to work and next to the best running paths in the city, he’s sold. Two leasing agents, two prospective renters, one apartment. Can they co-exist without fireworks?

Lynn Cahoon is a contemporary romance author with a love of hot, sexy men, real and imagined. Her alpha heroes range from rogue witch hunters, modern cowboys, or hot doctors, sexy in scrubs. And her heroines all have one thing in common, their strong need for independence. Or at least that’s what they think they want. She blogs at her website

5 quick questions if you don’t mind.

1) What the last gift you bought?
A bejeweled notebook in baroque style for a writer friend. I’d picked it up at the art museum when I finished with a renaissance show. It was almost too pretty to give away.

2) When was the last bar-b-que you had?
With people? We just grilled a couple weekends ago. I did pork steaks and they turned out really well. But as an event, it’s been a while. One fourth of July we hosted a bunch of my husband’s employees for a bbq. As it darkened, the boys started with the fireworks. The first bottle rocket went straight for me. I moved my lawn chair. The second did the same. I moved again. Finally, I’d had enough and told my husband if he was trying to kill me, he had too many witnesses.

3) What’s your favorite color?
Blue. Or Purple. I love the deep jewel tones. Although if you looked at my closet, you’d guess black.

4) Who’s your favorite author?
It changes. Right now, it’s Harlan Coben. Loving his mysteries and the themes that he uses of family and friendship. Love the mixture of paranormal and mystery and romance with Heather Graham.

5) What’s your favorite thing to eat when you need a sugar fix?
Again, depends. If I just want sugar – skittles. Berry please. If I want chocolate I want Hershey level or better. Big fan of semi-sweet chocolate chips right out of the freezer.

Interview with Author MORGAN K. WYATT

Today I’m interviewing Morgan K Wyatt .Her book, Escaping West is a historical romance a March 2013 release.

***Morgan is giving away a $5 gift card to Amazon to one lucky person****

Please tell my readers a little bit about your book.
The book starts during Reconstruction. Kitty Hamilton is afraid she’ll end up an old maid, because there are precious few available men in the area. She’s accused of a crime she didn’t commit, which sends her fleeing the state dressed as a boy. Escaping is her principle concern until she encounters handsome gambler, Nick Kennedy.

Describe the genre of this particular title, and is the only genre you write in?
Escaping West is a historical romance that embraces adventure, new frontiers, pushing boundaries, and courageous individuals.

I also have five contemporary romances with Secret Cravings. I have two romantic suspense tales coming out with Secret Cravings this year.

My current WIP is a young adult paranormal time traveler tale with romantic elements.

How did this story come to be?
Escaping West is my original story that included everything I found fascinating about the west from gold rushes, U.S. Marshals, flashy gamblers, mail order brides and even bathhouses. The Rebel Heart series, which came first time-wise, was written later after Escaping West.

Did you have several manuscripts finished before you sold?
I sold contemporaries before the historical romances. Escaping West came after publish eight other novels.

What is your writing routine like?
I usually write in the morning, edit in the afternoon, and do promos, email, and website in the evening.

What character is most like you or least like you?
In Escaping West, I find I am a bit like Kitty who often acts impulsively and pays the consequences later.

What most inspires you in life?
My husband inspires my writing. Most of my heroes have similar traits to him. He wrote almost all the male dialogue in Unexpected Cougar.

He maintains my author website. This amazing man is actually spending his vacation at the RWA Conference in Atlanta.

BOOK BLURB (Setup: Kitty fled the saloon with Nick’s saddlebags thinking she’s throwing off the bad guy.)
Why did she do such an impulsive, stupid thing? She knew why even if she didn't want to admit it was something in his kisses. Then there was his voice, low, intimate calling her name.

“Kit, where are you?”

She could even hear it as if he was nearby. Amazing, Kitty shook her head bemused until she heard the voice again.


Her imagination must be working overtime. Duke whickered loud and hard. She started to tell him to hush when she heard boot steps on the gravel. Freezing in place, Kitty strained to hear the approaching footsteps.

"Kitty, it's me, Nick. Where are you?"

Letting go of the breath she'd been holding, Kitty took another breath before calling out. "I'm over here in the hole. Be careful."

"I'm coming, sweetheart." He called back, his boot heels scrambling for purchase over the rocks.

He'd called her sweetheart. She sighed then she accidentally put her weight on the wrong foot. "Ouch!"

"What, honey?” Nick called out in a voice that sounded a little closer.

"Hurry," Kitty managed through clenched teeth. He was there before she knew it. Deftly jumping into the hole and wrapping her in his arms, accidentally battering her already savaged ankle.

"Ouch, watch it," she complained.

"I didn't expect undying gratitude, but something like my hero might not be out of line," Nick commented laughingly.

"Thank you, Nick. I am grateful. I hurt my ankle when I fell into the hole." Kitty snuggled into Nick's shoulder appreciative of his warmth and inhaled deeply, enjoying the smell of worn leather and clean male.

Nick paced around the small hole with Kitty in his arms. He dragged his boot toe around the edge trying to find a way up or out.

"Well, darling, looks like I am going to have to toss you up," Nick acknowledged.

"What," Kitty squeaked. "Toss me where?"

"I looked, and there seems to be no easy way out of here. It’s up to you. Once you're up, I need you to tie the rope to the saddle horn on Duke's saddle and back him up. Once I get a hold of the rope, pull me up. Can you manage?"

Kitty had her doubts as she felt Nick's voice vibrate through the clothing separating the two of them. In the end, tossing seemed to be her only hope of getting out, and she imagined Nick was a good tosser. Naturally, he would be good at everything.

A little bit about the author.

Morgan K Wyatt, raised on a steady diet of superheroes, believed she could fly at a very young age. After using trees, barn lofts, sliding boards, and even a second story window as launch pads, she found her flying skills were limited to fast and downward. By the age of nine, her dreams to be a superhero needed some modifications, which caused her to turn to writing and horseback riding as alternatives to flying.

At the age of twenty, she had another chance at superhero greatness as being one of the few female soldiers trained for combat. The fact that women will be able to serve in combat soon indicates that all the witnesses to the grenade incident have retired. The grenade incident didn’t prevent her two sons or daughter-in-law from enlisting in the service. Having different last names probably helped.

Morgan recently retired from teaching special needs students to write fulltime, instead of in the wee hours of the night. With the help of her helpful husband and loyal hound, she creates characters who often grab plot lines and run with them. As for flying, she prefers the airlines now.

How can my readers buy your book?
Readers can purchase my book directly from my author page with links to Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Secret Cravings

Readers can follow me on twitter @MorganKWyatt


I also do free books promos for other writers on

My husband

2) What is your favorite board game?

21B Baker Street (similar to Clue)

3) What is the book you are reading?

4) When is the last time you laughed?

Screamed, hooted and shrieked the other night watching The Middle.

5) What’s your favorite vacation spot?

I love the beach, especially at sunrise when no one else is there.

6) Movies- horror or comedy?


7) Ride a bike or take a walk?

Walk—too many bike accidents

Interview with Author GERRI BROUSSEAU

Have you ever thought of being drawn back in time to a place where there is no electricity, no modern conveniences, nothing? Can you, the modern day person, imagine having nothing but the elements to survive on? Well, that’s exactly what happens to my heroine, Pam Hastings. Pam is an advertising agent who lives in Connecticut and works in “The City.” She lives a pretty boring life, that is, until she comes into possession of a dream catcher. But, it’s no ordinary dream catcher, it’s enchanted. Now you know that the purpose of a dream catcher is suppose to be to trap a person’s bad dreams in its net where they drip away with the morning sun. Well, I thought, what if the dream catcher were to act in a different way. What if when Pam fell asleep the dream catcher drew her back in time through her dreams? That is exactly what happens to her in my new release, According to Legend. You see, According to Legend when the spirit of the Tribal Princess is born again and she holds the enchanted stone in her hands, the lovers will be reunited ... even through time.
One night, probably after eating a pepperoni pizza, I had a very vivid dream and the idea of this story was born. Legend, as I so lovingly refer to my book, was the first novel I ever wrote despite the fact that it was not the first to be published. I wanted this story to be exciting for the readers. I wanted it to bring my reader through a quest, an adventure full of danger and romance all wrapped in threads of Native American Legend. According to Legend has a prophecy, a quest, a love triangle, and a quirky wolf that, by the way, happens to be the favorite character I have ever written (so far).  I had quite an adventure in writing this book and I sure hope it delivers. 
Here is a little excerpt for you ...
“Do you happen to remember the names of the tribal Chief and his Princess?” I asked.
Mrs. Warren reluctantly handed the dream catcher back to me. Her expression softened and became melancholy as she smiled, a sweet smile as if she were a million miles away remembering another time. “Ah,” she said. “One of my fondest childhood memories.” Her unfocused gaze stared somewhere over my left shoulder. “Chief Running Wolf, which in the Aloscotay dialect is, Moheeladeck,” she said as she closed my fingers around the artifact in my hand.
The instant my fingers closed around the catcher, its magic enticed me toward it—toward him.
Takshawee . . . come to me. The deep timber of his voice, a whisper in my mind. My head spun and fog swirled as I felt drawn. I tightened my grip on the catcher. It’s luring me to him. My breathing quickened as its magic beckoned me. I attempted to deny its pull. Try to focus on what Mrs. Warren is saying. The old woman’s voice sounded so far away.
“His love was called Princess Loving Doe, which in Aloscotay is  . . .” She stared into my amber eyes as her voice trailed off to a hoarse whisper. “Takshawee.”
Takshawee . . . I am waiting for you. My Warrior’s whisper swirled through my mind, tugging at my very soul.
Unable to resist his call, I collapsed.

Wonder where you can find this book. It just so happens to be on sale (half price) at Amazon and here is the link ...
If you want to know more about me and my books, please visit me at my website
You can also find me on Facebook at I would love to hear from you. 

According to Legend, when the spirit of the Tribal Princess is born again and she holds the enchanted stone in her hand, the lovers will be reunited . . . even through time.

Pam Hastings, an advertising agent, lives a boring life until she comes into possession of an enchanted dream catcher, which through her dreams, draws her back in time and into the arms of the handsome Warrior Chief, Moheeladeck.

Pam discovers the stones entwined within the dream catcher hold special powers and are also the key to a secret cave, rumored to contain untold riches. When Pam is followed and her house broken into she realizes she needs protection. That is when she meets the handsome and charming dog breeder, David Conner, who gives her Half-Breed. But Half-Breed is no ordinary dog, and has secrets of his own.

With the village burning and the tribe under attack, Moheeladeck is torn between his duty to protect his tribe in his time and his desire to protect the woman he loves in hers. David is torn between his love for the same woman and the destiny he was born to fulfill . . . her destruction. Pam finds herself caught in a love triangle between these two men; a love triangle that spans into both realms of time. With rivals in both the past and present pursuing her to control the power of the stones and the treasures in the cave, who is really behind it all? Who can she trust? With two warriors who profess their love for her, who will capture her heart? We find out only in her dreams.

Gerri was born and raised in Connecticut. She attended Central Connecticut State University, majoring in English Literature.  Although she lived on the west coast for several years, she relocated back to her roots and birth place of Connecticut, where she presently resides with her two pugs, Mimi and Milo and her cats, Louise and Harry.
As a young girl growing up in Waterbury, Gerri spent her summers writing stories and often times, together with neighboring girls her age, would present original plays for an audience of their parents.  When she moved back to Connecticut, Gerri took a job that required her to commute 4 hours a day by train to and from work.  After a year of reading a book a week, she decided to make the time work for her, when one night after a strange dream about a dream catcher, she was inspired to write her first book. 

Lest you think all of her time is spent in contemplative pursuits, freefalling out of airplanes gave a whole new meaning to the word "adventure".  Yes, a former skydiver who chose to retire from the sport, Gerri assures us that freefall is totally exhilarating and one of the most amazing and thrilling experiences anyone can have.  Her energy and zest for life is found in the imaginative and page turning adventures she writes.

A Pirate’s Ransom is her debut novel with a release date of August 22, 2012
According to Legend will be released in November, 2012.

***Gerri will give away one free copy. Just leave a comment for a chance to win.***

Interview with Author, ELLA QUINN

Today I’m interviewing Ella Quinn. Her debut book, The Seduction of Lady Phoebe is a Regency and is being released for pre-order.

 ***Ella will give away one free copy today!***

Please tell my readers a little bit about your book.

Thanks for having me here, Sarah. The Seduction of Lady Phoebe is about Lady Phoebe Stanhope and Lord Marcus Finley who had a disastrous meeting when they were much younger. Ever since then Phoebe has not trusted her feelings when it comes to men. Marcus, who’d been banished to the West Indies, has returned and is determine to marry Phoebe who refuses to talk to him.

Describe the genre of this particular title, and is the only genre you write in?
 The Regency period takes place during the early 19th century in England. It was when King George III was declared mad and his son, the future George IV became regent. What I love about the era was that it was a period of great change. There were some very liberal philosophers and many new ideas floating around. For young, unmarried ladies, there were many rules and restrictions, which can be great fun to play with.

How did this story come to be?
 I’d been wanting to write something, but because the only thing I’d ever written was non-fiction, I didn’t know what I wanted to write. I had a video playing in my head of a lady in Regency dress pacing angrily, but I didn’t know what to do with it. Then I read an author interview where the author said, write what you read, not what you know. That liberated me to write my first paragraph. Four weeks later I had a 100,000 word first draft, but had no idea what to do next.

What is your writing routine like?
 When I first started writing, I’d just sit down and write. Now with social media, book releases, and the research required for my current WIP. I make sure I make time to write at least a chapter a day if not more. It’s usually in the afternoon.

What character is most like you or least like you?
 I think Phoebe’s Aunt Ester is most like me. She’s very caring and wants the best for Phoebe.

What most inspires you in life?

 Life in all its aspects. I’ve had an interesting time so far.

What’s next for you? 
I have two more books in The Marriage Game series going on pre-order, The Secret Life of Miss Anna Marsh in June with a release in November, and The Temptation of Lady Serena in August with a release date in January. My editor at Kensington has the fourth book and I’m writing the fifth. I had thought the series would end with book six, but it now looks like there will be a seventh.

My next series is tentatively titled Love in a Season. The first two books have been written but no edited.


THE SEDUCTION OF LADY PHOEBE ~ September, 19, 2013

LADY PHOEBE STANHOPE, famous for her quick wits, fast horses, and punishing right hook, is afraid of nothing but falling in love. Fleeing a matchmaking attempt with the only man she despises, Phoebe meets a handsome blue-eyed stranger who sends her senses skittering. By the time Phoebe discovers the seductive stranger is the same arrogant troll she sent packing eight years ago, she is halfway to falling in love with him.

LORD MARCUS FINLEY last saw Phoebe striding regally away, as he lay on the floor with a bruised jaw and a rapidly swelling eye. Recently returned from the West Indies, Marcus is determined to earn Phoebe’s love, preferably before she discovers who he is. Determined to have Phoebe for his own, Marcus begins his campaign to gain her forgiveness and seduce her into marriage.

Can Phoebe learn to trust her own heart and Marcus? Or is she destined to remain alone?

~Lady Phoebe is a heroine Georgette Heyer would adore--plucky, pretty, and well worth the devotion of the dashing Lord Marcus. A marvelous find for Regency romance readers.~

~ Grace Burrowes ~

Ella Quinn’s The Seduction of Lady Phoebe is a passionate tale full of humor, romance, and poignancy. Quinn writes classic Regency romance at its best!”

~Shana Galen~

A little bit about the author.
Ella’s studies and other jobs have always been on the serious side. Reading historical romances, especially Regencies, were her escape. Eventually her love of historical novels led her to start writing them.

She is married to her wonderful husband of twenty-nine years. They have a son and granddaughter, Great Dane and a Chartreux. After living in the South Pacific, Central America, North Africa, England and Europe, she and her husband decided to make St. Thomas, VI home.

Ella is a member of the Romance Writers of American, The Beau Monde and Hearts Through History. She is represented by Elizabeth Pomada of Larsen-Pomada Literary Agency, and published by Kensington. Her first book, The Seduction of Lady Phoebe, will release in September 2013

Ella loves to hear from readers. Website (will be up next week)




Eight years later. June 1814, Newhaven, Sussex, England

Guy, the Seventh Marquis of Dunwood, watched as the American-made schooner approached the dock. A tall, tanned, young man in his late twenties stood at the bow, a line in hand ready to throw to one of the dock hands on the pier. He looked more like a seaman than a well-born gentleman.

His youngest son. The one, Guy thought ruefully, he hadn’t recognized two years ago, when Marcus had come to visit.

The line sailed through the air and looped perfectly around a piling. After tying it off, Marcus walked back and addressed the captain before disappearing from sight.

Not more than a half an hour later, Dunwood greeted his son. “Welcome home. You could have returned earlier.”

The good humor drained from Marcus’s eyes. “Not and have made provisions for Lovet’s family. They were left in bad straits when he died.”

Dunwood would never understand the reason this son saw the need to care for those who were not his dependents. Apparently the West Indies had more of an impact on him than Dunwood thought it would. Well, what Marcus did with his private fortune was no bread and butter of Dunwood’s. Rather than argue, he asked, “How is the new steward doing?”

His son’s broad shoulders relaxed. “Well indeed. He used to work for the Spencer-Jones family, but when their third oldest son married, the property my new steward was managing went to the son. The man came highly recommended. I made the offer before anyone else could beat me to it.”

“Good. I’m glad you were able to find someone.” Dunwood started toward the two large coaches near an inn. “Where are your trunks?”

“I’ve only one. Covey, my man, will see it stowed,” Marcus said. “How are Arthur and the girls faring?”

“Your brother is doing as well as can be expected, as are his daughters.”

Marcus glanced around to see Covey wave to him. The last time he’d visited his brother, Arthur was hale and hearty. Now he was dying of consumption. His wife had passed a few years ago leaving him two daughters, but no heir.

As a result, Marcus had been recalled from banishment. He wondered how difficult it was going to be, after all the years of being his own master, to live with his father and be under Dunwood’s rule.

Glancing around the small town, Marcus felt as if he were in a foreign country, but he’d been gone long enough. He looked at his ship, the Lady Phoebe, tied up at the dock. Perhaps too long.

How can my readers buy your book?

Interview with Author, LOREEN AUGERI

Today I’m interviewing Loreen Augeri. Her book, Lost Honor, is a historical romance and was released on March 8, 2013.

Please tell my readers a little bit about your book.

First, I want to thank you for having me on your blog today. Lost Honor is set in 1818 and in the beginning takes place on a brig in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. As the hero, a sea captain, attempts to find his brother kidnapped by pirates, he discovers a female stowaway on his ship. She wants to become a member of his crew. He refuses. Even though he is betrothed, feelings for her blossom and grow.

Describe the genre of this particular title, and is it the only genre you write in?

Lost Honor is a historical romance. Yes, it is the only genre I write in. I love reading and writing about various time periods in history. Life was simpler and slower. Since historical romances take place before World War II, the plot can be set in the fifteenth century for one book and the eighteenth century for the next. While researching, I enjoy learning about the customs, food, dress, and way of life of the people that came before us.

How did this story come to be?

I have always enjoyed reading about pirates, so I decided to write a book with the pirate as the hero. When I took a workshop, I discovered certain aspects of pirate life I thought were true were myths. The truth didn’t fit into the plot I envisioned, so I made the hero the captain of the ship and the pirate a villain.

What is your writing routine like?

I set a goal of how many pages I want to write or edit each week. My life is different every day so I accomplish more on certain days than I do on others, which is why I set a weekly goal. Sometimes I work on the manuscript in the morning and at other times in the afternoon. Some people like to listen to music while they write. I like complete quiet. I see the action taking place in my head like a movie.

Having achieved your goal to be a published author, what is the most rewarding thing?

I can think of three rewarding things, to see my name in print, creating lives for the characters in my books, and hopefully giving readers a few hours of pleasure.

What most inspires you in life?

Reading historical romance novels inspires me to write and attempt to become better at my craft.

What’s next for you?

I have a finished novel I would like to see published, and I just started writing another manuscript.


Captain Morgan Danvers sets sail to rescue his brother, kidnapped by pirates. Fearing he will become like his father who abandoned him, he has cut himself off from his emotions. Then a willful stowaway crashes into his life, awakening dormant feelings and firing his lust. Soon he finds his all-important honor threatened, for even though he is betrothed to another, he is drawn to her against his will.

Arianna Pemberton hides in a barrel she thinks will be loaded on her brother's ship but lands on Morgan's brig. Her father has forbidden her to sail, and this is her only course of action. Unwilling to allow a man to control her, she is determined to make her way as a seaman, a profession she knows and loves. But when Captain Danvers discovers her deception, he refuses to permit her to prove herself. As she struggles to convince him, unwanted passion emerges, jeopardizing her plans for independence.

A little bit about the author. 

I started reading historical romances when my children were babies. When my youngest daughter started school, I decided I wanted to write a novel. At first, to see if I could, later as a hobby, and then seeking publication. Becoming a member of the Romance Writers of America, Hearts Through History, and my local chapter, New England Chapter helped in the process. I live in Massachusetts with my husband of 31 years and my two daughters. When I am not reading or writing, I enjoy walking, dancing, and spending time at the beach.


Shoved by powerful hands, she fell to her knees before booted feet. “Found her in the hold, Cap’n. Thought she was a boy at first, her wearin’ pants and a cap, but she has tits.”

“I can see that, Jurgens.”

Arianna followed the shiny boots up to tight-fitting, brown breeches hugging muscular thighs, and slim hips. A loose, white shirt covering broad shoulders next met her gaze, then a corded neck, square jaw, stern lips, crooked nose, and cold, dark eyes that stared down at her. “Where’s my brother? Who are you?”

“I will be asking the questions. Who are you, and why are you on my ship?” The deep voice thundered through the cabin.

Her stomach flip-flopped. Dizziness swamped her. Swallowing convulsively, she battled to contain the contents of her queasy stomach. Hiding in that empty molasses barrel hadn’t been the brightest idea of her twenty-one years. “I’m not talking to anyone but my brother.”

Jurgens’s forceful hands yanked her to a standing position. “You answer the cap’n.”

The abrupt movement snapped the fragile control she clung to. Spasms seized her throat. Arianna struggled to turn away, but the fingers digging into her arms held her in place. The contents of her stomach erupted.

All over Captain Danvers’s boots.

Her captor released her and jumped back in horror.
