What Makes a Good Gateway Book?

What Makes a Good Gateway Book? In case you haven’t heard any of the recent online and on-the-air discussions surrounding Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James, this isn’t one of them! I will tell you, I have not read the book and honestly, I don’t intend to. This isn’t a commentary on Fifty Shades nor a discussion on whether or not one should read the book… I’m in favor of books that get people reading, and that is what this book is doing. What I am here to talk about is what I hope Fifty Shades of Grey will be for many individuals… a GATEWAY book: a book that brings new readers into a...

A Visit to Lori Foster’s (not so little) Event

A Visit to Lori Foster’s (not so little) Event Dear readers. NO… Unfortunately I did NOT attend the marvelous gathering that Ms. Lori Foster throws every spring.

Sunday Snippets #43 Archangel’s Consort by Nalini Singh  Berkley Publishing January 25, 2011 …Come, Elena. I can’t land there. I’ll brain myself. He almost laughed and he had not thought he could do that after the sentence he’d just delivered. I will catch you.

Then it reformed him anew. “Elena,” he whispered into her hair as he crushed her to him. She wrapped her arms around him, his fragile consort with her incredible will and her refusal to surrender. “Tell me,” she whispered. And he, and archangel used to keeping a thousand...

Sunday Snippets #32

Sunday Snippets #32 From Play of Passion by Nalini Singh Release date: November 2, 2010 Andrew heard Indigo moan, felt her body soften a delicious fraction before the lieutenant got herself under control. Pushing off his shoulders, she rolled away to crouch beside him on the forest floor, her namesake eyes bright with the wolf’s night-glow gaze. “I’ll forgive you for slobbering over me that one time. But do it again and I’ll put you on your ass.” “I’m already there.” He sat up. “And I seem to recall you slobbering back.” Her tongue had been a sleek, fast dart in his mouth before that damn self-discipline of hers had kicked in....
