Guestpost: Disaster Romance? by Jill Sorenson + Giveaway

We are very happy to welcome Jill Sorenson here as first guest author in 2013. Her newest novel, Aftershock released last week and today she is here to tell us about her fascination with disaster romance. Be sure to tell her what you think for your chance to win your own copy. Please give Jill a warm welcome.  

Hello Book Lovers Inc!

Some readers have said that my latest release, Aftershock, is like a disaster movie. It’s no accident; I’m a huge movie fan. I took several film studies and screenwriting classes in college. Many of my books are inspired by films.

Aftershock has been compared to Daylight, a disaster movie with Sylvester Stallone. I can’t remember if I’ve seen it, but I really enjoyed Cliffhanger, also starring Stallone. My next book, Freefall, features a rock climber hero. I definitely thought of Cliffhanger (but not Stallone!) when I wrote it.

Guest Post: Top ten Christmas Songs by Robin Covington + Giveaway!

Is it “Silent Night”? “O Tanenbaum”?  “Jingle Bell Rock”? Today at BLI, romance author Robin Covington stops by to share with us some of her favorite holiday tunes, along with reasons why they’ve touched her heart. With over 600 such tunes on her iPod, it’s safe to say she’s an authority on the matter. ^_^ Her latest story, Secret Santa Baby, falls right into that spirit of Christmas, nerd style! (More on that later.)

Please show Robin a warm BLI welcome! (And for the record, I’m all about “Baby It’s Cold Outside” and “Rockin Around the Christmas Tree”; modern classics! What about you?) 


My Top Ten Favorite Christmas Songs

I start listening to Christmas in October. Now, I have compromised with the Main Man and I don’t play it in the house or the car while he is around until after Thanksgiving because he is not a huge fan …

As we all trundle through the holiday season, I’ve been asked how I came up with the idea for a Cinderella-Scrooge mash-up for my Suddenly Cinderella Series holiday novella, A CINDERELLA CHRISTMAS CAROL.

On a subliminal level, I expect I was inspired by Disney and the company’s wonderful history of integrating the magic of the winter holidays with their fairy …

Guestpost: Author Delilah Marvelle + Giveaway

Today we welcome author Delilah Marvelle, one of the 2 authors on this Holiday anthology.  She will tell us the Story behind the Story 😉 Stay tuned and you can win an Amazon Gift Card. Let’s give a warm welcome to Delilah!

I’ve always wanted to write a Christmas themed historical romance. Always. I just didn’t have the right story to go with it. I waited and I waited for something special to inspire me and oddly, that inspiration came when I least expected it.

I was re-watching ‘The Graduate’ with my husband when my characters both whizzed into focus. I simply *had* to a write a story about an older woman and a younger man set in Dickens’s era during Christmas. Don’t ask me how I made …

Guest Post + Excerpt by Hailey Edwards + Giveaway!

Merry mid-Week, book lovers! We’re really excited to be welcoming Hailey Edwards back to BLI today. Hailey is author of romance fiction including the popular fantasy romance series, Araneae Nation. Today, she stops by from her blog tour to share some fascinating lessons about one of the many herbs employed by the heroine of her latest novel, A Feast of Souls. How much do you know about herbs and spices? Whether it’s but a pinch or a whole satchel, you may learn something new. So check out what Hailey’s got to say about…


While writing A Feast of Souls, I researched herb lore because the heroine, Mana, is a spirit walker. In the Araneae world, that makes her a spiritual leader for her clan, one who can walk in between worlds and aid in healing from the spiritual plane. Mana also studies herbology. She is no doubt responsible for feeding …

Thank you for having me here today to talk about my newest release, WE’LL BE HOME FOR CHRISTMAS.

The title probably gives it away but this is a holiday romance. The story takes place in the weeks before Christmas – those hectic “how am I going to get everything done???” days. Thinking about the book and the season got me thinking about decorations and cookies (and more cookies) and gifts and everything that goes along with the season from shiny …

How Marketing Infiltrated My Christmas Novella

One of the question most asked of any author is how do you come up with your ideas. Well, I’m going to give you a little behind-the scenes glimpse of part of that answer which might never occur to a reader. I had never planned to write a Christmas novella. Did not have the faintest inkling of an idea. …

Horses: A Writing Inspiration

I’ve had rabbits, cats, and dogs, but never a horse while growing up. I lived in New Jersey with populated neighborhoods and no one I knew had a horse. Taking lessons wasn’t even a consideration. The only time I’d been near a horse was when the farmer’s across from my grandparents house let me ride in the corn cart as the horse went up and down the field at harvest time. I can’t say …

Guest Post: An Out of this World Soundtrack + Giveaway

Music is an important part of the holidays! It’s also a very useful tool when telling stories. The right piece of music can be the perfect inspiration to make the words flow.

So here are the authors of the sci-fi romance holiday anthology, A GALACTIC HOLIDAY, talking about out-of-this-world music that helped inspire their out-of-this-world novellas.

Sasha: I admit, I didn’t listen to any traditional Christmas music while I was writing GALILEO’S HOLIDAY. I love Christmas music, don’t get me wrong. But the vibe wasn’t quite right. I do write to music, though, so I pulled a few songs that gave me the ‘feel’ I was looking for.  Two favorites are:

SAIL by Awolnation

Memorials/Rebuilding Serenity from the Serenity Soundtrack

Stacy: Since HOW THE GLITCH SAVED CHRISTMAS is in futuristic Chicago, I had the luxury of using Christmas carols in my story, though I made up Edison’s favorite, “Gimme, Santa, …
