Me: Welcome! oh my goodness, oh my goodness! The Red Queen (AKA author Dorothy F. Shaw!) is here! *beams* Come on in. Welcome to Tartlandia. *shoves laundry to the end of the couch* Take a seat please. Can I get you something to drink? Water, soda, tea, coffee… something festive? I’m indulging in a strawberry daquiri.
Dorothy: I would love a Jameson on the rocks please. *Grins*
I spent the past few days curled up reading during every spare moment I had. Dorothy’s writing made me laugh out loud and sigh (and need a fan! it’s steamy 😉 ) I loved Maiya and Ryan’s journey (Click Here for my review) and I’m eager for more of the Donnelly family!
Enjoy as Dorothy shares a bit about writing Unworthy Heart and Maiya’s song (at the beginning of her adventure) and some of her playlist + a yummy excerpt. Then if it strikes your fancy like it did mine, go get Unworthy Heart!
Oh! Another Sidney Bristol story is coming our way! I’m so happy! Take a look at the absolutely delicious cover for her upcoming novella Picture Her Bound. It’s part of the Midnight Ink anthology with new original stories from Eden Bradley, R.G. Alexander, Jayne Rylon, Robin L. Rotham, PG Forte, Carrie Ann Ryan and Mari Carr! *Snoopy Dance* I can’t wait!
I am a Maine tart right now but I loved Sidney Bristol’s new story, The Harder He Falls, so much I just had to spazz out about it. I filmed this vlog with my iPhone sitting on the shore with the waves tickling my toes. 😉 I wish ya’ll were here with me and we could chat about stories together. It’s my favorite thing to do. Talk bookie to me. 😀
I think this is becoming a tradition! 😀 I love helping my girl Sidney Bristol celebrate her book birthdays and I’m excited to help her kick off her book tour for The Harder He Falls.
It’s the second book in her So Inked series. Book 1, Under His Skin made me fall in love with Sid (click HERE for my review). I think The Harder He Falls is even better! *Kermit flail* sooo good! I’ll review on Saturday.
Enjoy our silly chat and Sidney rockin’ her new Diamonds and Tattoos tank top (Perfect timing on the shirt!) + a fun blog post + a yummy excerpt + a contest!
Oh! *sigh* I love this story! It’s a brand new novella (oops! Ellora’s Cave says it’s novel length. It just read so fast, I guess I thought it was short!) by Taryn Elliott called Holiday Sparks and it’s out just in time for Christmas.
I adore Darcy and Ben and the heart, humor and heat in this book. It was a perfect treat and I honestly wanted more. If you enjoy contemporary romance- Get this book! 😀
The Queen of Tarts
PS. Taryn will be visiting my virtual couch on the 27th! *Kermit Flail*
