Michelle Beattie’s 10th Book Celebration!

It’s no secret that I love historical romances and I’ve always had a weakness for rugged heroes, so I’m thrilled to feature the wonderful Michelle Beattie on my blog today with an interview to celebrate her 10th book, A Sheriff’s Passion! So glad you could join us today, Michelle! What is your favorite part about writing historical Marietta? What I like about historical Marietta is that I was able to take a town that is already so beloved by readers and show a different side to it and introduce some different characters.   I’m very thankful those readers have gone along with me on this ride and are enjoying this other side of Marietta. Why do you like writing historicals, and why does … Continue reading Michelle Beattie’s 10th Book Celebration!

Meet Patricia W. Fischer!

Patricia W. Fischer is one of those great Texans I love so much.  She’s smart, kind, generous, but also very hard working.  I love her can-do attitude and her desire to contribute and when the Men of Marietta series was being developed, the Tule team though she’d be an awesome fit.  Help me welcome Patricia to my blog and so glad she has a chance to meet you, my amazing readers and friends!

Kaylie Newell’s Man in Marietta

I first heard about Kaylie Newell because of FB posts where my friends Megan Crane and Maisey Yates would mention her, or have a pic and a mention of them having coffee in Jacksonville, Oregon and I would be envious because they always looked like they were having such fun.  And then I started following Kaylie because her posts really resonated with me…she is such an amazing mom, and a fierce spirit, and a kind soul.  I love the combination of gentle warrior and I couldn’t wait for the day where I’d have the chance to work and play with her….and now I do! I am so delighted to introduce all my readers and friends to the wonderful Kaylie Newell.  … Continue reading Kaylie Newell’s Man in Marietta

Amy Hatvany’s It Happens All The Time

I’m so incredibly proud of my friend, the wonderful Amy Hatvany for writing It Happens All The Time, a very important book all women should read.  It’s deep, emotional and so honest and real. Here’s more about the book: From master storyteller Amy Hatvany—whose writing has been hailed as “gripping and emotionally honest” (Stephanie Evanovich, New York Times betselling author)—comes a provocative and compelling novel about two friends whose lives are changed by a drunken kiss. I want to rewind the clock, take back the night when the world shattered. I want to erase everything that went wrong. Amber Bryant and Tyler Hicks have been best friends since they were teenagers—trusting and depending on each other through some of the … Continue reading Amy Hatvany’s It Happens All The Time

Lara Van Hulzen’s Recipe For Romance

I’ve been strapped in, working so hard to reach the deadline on my Harlequin Presents but it’s hard to resist all these fun books in the Bachelor Bake-Off!  Today I have another Bake-Off author, Lara Van Hulzen as a guest to tell us more about her book. Welcome, Lara! I began publishing with Tule after a surf lesson in Hawaii led me to connect with Jane. It’s a great story, really. One that I could see ending up in a book one day. When Jane asked me if I would be interested in being a part of a Montana Born series about a Bachelor Bake Off, I jumped at the chance. I had never done a book in a series with … Continue reading Lara Van Hulzen’s Recipe For Romance

Charmed By Chocolate with Steena Holmes

I was introduced to Steena Holmes through my very good friend CJ Carmichael.  I’d read Steena’s books long before I’d met her and I was so excited to meet Steena as she’d been such a good friend to CJ, as well as an inspiration to writers all over.  Steena has a huge heart and a passion for readers and writing and she’s one of the most giving authors I know, always willing to encourage and offer assistance. I am so excited today to share that Steena’s new book is out, and it’s a Tule story, too!  Her delicious Charmed by Chocolate is the 6th book in the Love at the Chocolate Shop series which is set in the much loved … Continue reading Charmed By Chocolate with Steena Holmes

A Chat With The Bachelor Bake-Off Authors

I love the new Montana Born series, Bachelor Bake-Off, as Marietta is near and dear to my heart, as are all the occupants,including those hunky bachelors. For extra Bachelor Bake-Off fun I asked authors Jennifer Faye and Jessica Gilmore to interview each other to help introduce them and their wonderful stories to you. Girls, I hand it over to you! Jessica: Hello Jennifer, it was so much fun working with you on this series! Could you tell me a little about yourself? Jennifer:  Hi, I’m Jennifer Faye. I live in the United States with my very patient and helpful husband and two needy furbabies aka cats. 😉 I’ve been writing for most of my life.
