Author Interview – Shirley Wells

Author Interview – Shirley Wells Today I have the honor of bringing to you mystery/suspense author Shirley Wells (and a GIVEAWAY… Keep reading!).  Shirley lives in the UK and says she is “lucky enough to live in Lancashire where my novels are set. I say lucky because I’m very lazy when it comes to research so I like being on the spot.”  She also feels fortunate to be able to write full-time. She shares her home with her husband, two dogs and two cats. When the dogs aren’t taking her for long walks over the hills, they’re sleeping under her desk. She also notes that her cats are busy learning to type, and says...

Sunday Snippets #29

Sunday Snippets #29 From Fantasy Lover by Sherrilyn Kenyon WARNING – THIS SNIPPET IS RATED M for Mature! Grace felt Julian’s presence. Turning around, she saw him outside the shower, completely naked. Her gaze feasted on every inch of that golden body, but it was his warm, charming smile that absolutely stole her heart and made her breathless. Without a word, he stepped inside. “You know,” he said with a casualness that astounded her. “I found something interesting this morning.” She watched the water fall over him, slicking his hair back until it fell in short, wet ringlets about his face. “Did you?” she asked, resisting her impulse to reach up and...

Technology & Science of the Victorian Times – Guest Post by Meljean Brook

Technology & Science of the Victorian Times – Guest Post by Meljean Brook Welcome to the final day of THE IRON DUKE WEEK here at That’s What I’m Talking About.  Today I want to welcome back author, Meljean Brook, who is here to discuss some of the research she completed while writing the Iron Seas series.  So without further delay… Welcome Meljean… Thank you, Jen. One of the best parts of writing the Iron Seas series is the research. From nanotechnology to electromagnetic pulse weapons, from steam engines to automatons—it’s all in there…but it all has to be twisted to fit my world. This is the hard part for me. I have an excellent imagination, but I also want all of the technology...

Author Interview – Meljean Brook

Author Interview – Meljean Brook Today I have the honor of bringing to you one of my favorite authors, Meljean Brook.  Meljean was raised in the middle of the woods, and hid under her blankets at night with fairy tales, comic books, and romances. She left the forest and went on a misguided tour through the world of accounting before focusing on her first loves, reading and writing–and she realized that monsters, superheroes, and happily-ever-afters are easily found between the covers, as well as under them, so she set out to make her own. Meljean lives in Portland, Oregon with her husband and daughter. Please help me welcome Meljean to That’s What I’m Talking...

Sunday Snippets #28 – The Iron Duke Week

Sunday Snippets #28 – The Iron Duke Week This week’s Sunday Snippets is a special Sneak Peek for THE IRON DUKE WEEK.  This snippet was selected by author Meljean Brook just for you!  Enjoy! Mina stepped into the lift, standing to the side to make room for Trahaearn and Newberry. The Iron Duke boarded and closed the cage behind him. Newberry abruptly stopped, staring at them through the grating. Trahaearn locked the gate. “It will be too crowded and over its weight capacity, constable. I’ll send it back down for you.” Mina looked at him in disbelief. Though it’d be a tight fit, the lift could accommodate her assistant. Then the duke glanced down at her, wearing...
