Director's Cut (The Millersburg Quartet Book 3)
He also discovers schoolteacher Molly Brighton.
Molly, though, wants no part of the sexy new director. He's too handsome, too charming, too dangerous to her heart.
The attraction is difficult to ignore, especially when aided by Jack's old friend, an unrepentant matchmaker with his own reasons for bringing them together.
A Top Shelf Indie Book Award Nominee (I didn’t submit it, someone else nominated it and Top Shelf thought it was worthwhile. I’m floored.) http://topshelfmagazine.net/index.php/sci-fi-fantasy “Brilliant, absolutely Brilliant. Having just finished reading ‘Song of the Fairy Queen’, I have to admit that it was one of the best books I have read in a while.”...read more
We thought we’d won. We thought we’d raised the issue of domestic violence. We thought change was on the horizon. We were wrong. We stopped fighting too soon. Domestic violence continues to kill — and not just the victims. On Feb. 22, 2018 a police officer died aiding a neighbor. The shooter had a long history of domestic violence, an active protective order against him, and three open warrants, including for assault. A man barred from owning firearms shot two officers in Westerville OH with a gun purchased by a friend,...read more
Do you like fantasy novels with realistic, complex characters, fantastic worlds with Elves, Dwarves, Men, Fairy Queens or High Priestesses, where battles of the mind and the heart are fought as well as battles against uncanny enemies? Epic, heroic, historic Arthurian fantasies. Tolkienesque or G. R. R. Martin (with healthy relationships and without the incest and rape. Why does G. R. R. not have any positive relationships between his characters?) In other words, not YA. I prefer to be realistic about all aspects of relationships in the books...read more
Once before I dallied with the idea of doing audiobooks, starting with one of the novellas in The Coming Storm series – Setting Boundaries – a prequel to the series. At best the result was ‘meh’. The narrator was okay, but he was convinced fantasy had to be read with a ‘British accent’ – I’m not sure why. And his accent wasn’t really British. It wasn’t horrible, but there was just something… that wasn’t quite there. I had wanted to have the whole series on audio with the...read more
Should you or shouldn’t you purchase a new cover? That is the question. A good cover isn’t cheap. Here’s how to determine the answer: Does it portray your genre? Is it working? Is it bringing readers to your book? Do your reviews reflect that? A hard-edged thriller cover should be a stark as the content. A fantasy cover should let the reader know whether it’s epic/mythic (landscapes, castles, swords), urban (edgy, usually dark, street views), heroic/tolkienesque/arthurian (pastoral, swords, magicians), historical, or a...read more
When did manners become a bad word? When did behaving well turn into a bad thing? When did political correctness become a pejorative? Has the general negative attitude of this country permeated to all levels? When did it become more right to be cruel than to be kind? There has been a ‘debate’, and I use that word very loosely, about a certain situation on Facebook that degenerated into name calling, unkindness, and worse. Bullying. The person involved was ganged up on by a large number of people. Even worse, since it was...read more
Romance novels tell us not how men are, but how we wish them to be. A few years back (I’m not telling how many *laughing*) I found myself in the position of watching my (previous) marriage at the beginning of the inevitable downward slide toward divorce. It was a tough time. Worse, because I was trying to follow my dream of writing. That was what tipped over the apple cart. What saved me was reading, of course. More particularly, reading a series of specific books – Nora Roberts Chesapeake Bay series. Knowing N.R.’s history...read more
