What's Ahead in 2017 #RLFblog #Romance #Authors

The Romance Lives Forever blog moves from Blogspot to Wordpress May 17, 2017. If you hate moving as much as I do, you'll be happy to know all the heavy lifting will be done by professionals. Your part will be to grab a favorite drink, sit back, take it easy, and come read the posts in beautiful new surroundings.
Once the move completes, all posts currently on the Blogspot version of Romance Lives Forever will appear on the new site also. On the Blogspot site, a note at the top will redirect readers to the new Wordpress location. Links on original posts will remain active, and all posts will remain on the Blogspot old blog while also appearing on the Wordpress blog.
We'll still use the hashtag #RLFblog.
Want a sneak peek of the new blog?
The headline will say, "Discover authors and books with Kayelle Allen. Visit Romance Lives Forever for a great read in multiple genres every day."
I'll keep you posted about any changes coming in addition. I look forward to sharing with you in the New Year.

Please Join in Saluting a Pillar of the #Romance Community #RLFBlog

Today's blog is a special one. Well at least to me anyway. Partially because I'm breaking the rules and typing this very late at night - being super stealthy - in an attempt to surprise Romance Live's Forever's blog owner, Kayelle Allen. But, mostly because after about two years of being Kayelle's blog administrator, I wanted to say thank you to her in a way that she'll be forced to hear. Because Kayelle is a quiet lady who doesn't bask in the limelight of all her fantastic efforts. You see, she does a LOT for the Romance community. In fact, she probably does more than most may even realize. Aside from being an awesomely talented author, an amazingly kind woman, and a Veteran of the United States Military, she is also the founder of the widely known Marketing for Romance Writers aka MFRW.

If you do not know Kayelle, please crawl out from under that rock you must have been lying under (kidding) and consider checking out her books, befriending her on her social networks or joining in the MFRW groups. I promise you'll make some great connections and meet some awesome people!

I hope after reading this post Kayelle doesn't throw too many things at me. But, the surprise - and hopefully smile - on her face, will make it all worth it! THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING, KAYELLE! ~ Nicole :)

The Author's Secret

How MFRW began...

Kayelle Allen here. Back in 2006, I was a busy author with four books. I was promoting,
learning more about promoting, and asking friends about promoting. All the ins and outs of book marketing were starting to gel and I felt like I was beginning to understand the overall concept. That said, I had a constant list of questions. Facebook was two years old. Twitter had been founded that year. Pinterest and Instagram were four years away. I had friends who had similar questions, and we would email each other and ask. Often, I'd get the same question several times in a row. I found myself going back to my "sent" file to copy an answer and resend it. Not that I wasn't asking questions myself, but I think because I'd take the time to go find an answer if someone asked something I didn't know - I started getting more and more questions.

It was Halloween, and I was busy with all sorts of details of writing, and I got the same question from two different people. I remember thinking that there had to be an easier way to handle this. I needed a way to let everyone know what I'd discovered at the same time, and if I had a question, get an answer from someone who knew. Yahoo Groups was established and well-used, so I decided to create one that all of my friends and I could use together. We could post a question there, and anyone who knew the answer could reply.

I set it up as Marketing for Romance Writers because that's what all of us were at the time. Looking back, I've often wished I'd named it Marketing for Every Writer. Of course, then the initials would have been MEW vs MFRW and our symbol might have been a black cat!

Then, we had 12 members. Ten years later, there are 2420 there now, plus 6230 on Facebook, 3411  on Twitter, and 1400+ on Pinterest with 71 boards and over 1000 pins.

In Your Arms #contemporary #romance by @SSchroeder_ #RLFblog

This quick interview includes info about the author, and introduces the story.

About Shannyn Schroeder

Shannyn is the author of the O'Leary series, contemporary romances centered around a large Irish-American family in Chicago and the Hot and Nerdy series about 3 nerdy friends finding love. Her new For Your Love series (For Your Love) released last summer with the first title Under Your Skin. When she’s not wrangling her three kids or writing, she watches a ton of TV and loves to bake cookies.

Interview with Shannyn Schroeder

Why did you write this book?
In Your Arms is the second in my For Your Love series. The series follows the O’Malley siblings as they fall in love. Sean was a lot of fun to write because he’s such an easygoing kind of guy. I was looking forward to writing about him from the first time I introduced him in another series (The O’Learys).
What is your favorite genre to read?
Contemporary romance. I know a lot of authors who don’t read in the genre they write, but not me. Give me all the good contemporary romances.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Roarke from JD Robb’s In Death series is probably my favorite hero of all time.
What are you working on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
The third book in the For Your Love series - Through Your Eyes - will release on May 28, 2017.
Right now, I’m drafting the last of the O'Malley books (For Your Love series). This will be Kevin’s story and it’s a second chance romance with the one who got away. It doesn't have a title yet, but it will be out sometime in early 2018.
Please tell us about your latest book.
A Knight in Shining Leather
Sean O'Malley has never tried to hide who he is. He shows it in the motorcycle thrumming between the legs of his tight jeans, the shaggy hair that falls in his gorgeous eyes, the wicked gleam in his smile when he asks Emma out for a drink. Sean is a rebel, a bad boy, and a ton of fun: exactly the kind of guy she's sworn off forever.
Emma isn't just the prim kindergarten teacher she appears to be. And somehow Sean can tell. As soon as he pulls up to her overheated car he knows that a fast bike and a cold beer will fix her rotten day better than compliments or a bubble bath. Her straitlaced exterior and her wild heart light him up. But Emma wants to escape her past and settle down—and if her desk jockey dates don't understand where she comes from, at least she doesn't worry about them bringing her back.
One weekend of intense connection can't change the paths Sean and Emma have chosen. But with a little space to be themselves together, maybe the rest of the world can wait.

Meet Livia Quinn, author of awesome military and Aussie romance.

Livia is a DC native who's lived on the bayou in Louisiana for thirty years. After experiencing weather disasters in the South, it was only natural that they would play a part in her Storm Lake world, a place where supernaturals and mere-mortals co-exist (but on different ends of the lake. That's one of the rules. Never let the mortals see you use your magic.)

Amazed by You a new #contemporary by @pawf1067 #RLFblog

This quick interview includes info about the author, and introduces the story.
About the Author
Ever since she wrote a play in fourth grade about the Loch Ness Monster–from the monster’s point of view, Patricia's been fascinated with telling stories. This has proven helpful at family gatherings since she comes from a very long line of natural born story-tellers.
She's been to the top of the world and seen the lowest moments when she worked as a pediatric and adult trauma nurse. Before her medical experience, she worked as a bartender, waitress, and prep cook. Add in her jobs as a bill collector, secretary, video store clerk, and checker at a hardware store and the characters for her stories are endless. She's met movie celebrities, music legends, sports heroes, and fantastic writers. Been under the sea, floated in the sky, sang the National Anthem at major league sporting events, acted a bit, and played some good music on her drums and guitar. And during all that time, she tucked all those adventures and moments in her head to write about it all one day. 

Interview with Patricia Fischer

Why did you write this book? I wanted to give a voice to adoption, especially family adoptions and the chaos and joy that can come from it. That you can have a second chance at mistakes made as a teen, that the world doesn’t end.
And that sometimes the worst things that happen to you might be the beginnings of the most amazing things in your life.
What is your favorite genre to read? It truly depends on the day. I’m up to read just about anything, but for sure I love romance no matter what genre.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)? I love Douglas Montgomery from A Knight In Shining Armor. That book helped me realize when I was in that ugly relationship, I could leave and be okay. One of the best moments of my life was to get to tell Jude Devereux, the author, that the book helped me when I really needed it. I had it all planned out, what to say and when I stood in front of her, I began crying so hard I’m not sure if she understood me at all, but she smiled and nodded and hugged me.
What are you working on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
In January, I’ll have book 5 from the Tuscany Series called To Heal a Wounded Heart.
In February, I’ve got my second book of my Weighting series with Soulmate Publishing. It’s the follow up to the book I wrote a couple of years ago. It answers a lot of questions that I’m so glad I can finally discuss.
In April, I’ll have a new book for Tule Publication about First Responders and a bit of calendar posing. So spicy!
Please tell us about your latest book.
Responsible Joseph Davis just got the altar. With his heart shattered, he decides the best way to heal is a one night stand and the cute brunette he just befriended will do just fine. Especially, when she offers him a deal he can’t refuse. 
One night. Just sex. No names.
Against his good-guy nature, he agrees except something about her makes him realize, they've met before. 
As a pregnant teen, Stephane Stratford stayed in the Pathways Foster Home and gave her daughter up for adoption. During her time there, she had a brief conversation with a young chestnut haired hunk with the cute dimples. He treated her with such kindness, she’s always compared every other suitor against him and all have failed miserably to measure up.
When she unexpectedly has to return to Tuscany to care for her now, teenage daughter, Stephanie wants one last fling before having to take on the permanent role of mother. This hot cowboy couldn’t be a better choice, but their rendez-vous ends too quickly and when they say their good-byes, Stephanie is confident she’ll never see him again...until she finds him standing in her sister’s kitchen. 
Joseph can't believe it. The beautiful brunette that's given him more erotic dreams than he cares to admit, is related to a long-time friend. 
As drawn as he is to her, does he take a chance in trying romance again?
With their attraction growing, Stephanie finally realizes that cute boy with dimples from long ago has grown to be one amazing looking man and the keeper of her biggest secret. Should she admit it all and face the fallout? Risk losing the only things she holds dear? Can Joseph work through his broken-heart and learn to trust again?
Things are about to get hotter in Tuscany.

When a Romance Lives Forever #anniversary

I believe Romance Lives Forever. December 23, 1973 was the day my husband and I tied the knot. We were both 22 years old, had been born 3 days apart, joined the Navy the same day, and were both stationed in Tennessee. Today marks 43 years together. One of my big sisters gave us 6 weeks. We'd met in June and were married in December, and she worried we were making a quick decision. Well, we were, but it was because we didn't want to be apart. We still feel that way. The reason I have Romance Lives Forever on all my branding is because I not only believe it's true, I've lived it.

Kayelle and Edward J Allen

Now, apparently it's also true that people start looking alike when they've been together a long time, so in case you're wondering, I'm the one in the white shirt without the hat.

On a more serious note...

For those who have lost loved ones this year (myself included), hold on. They say time heals but to be honest, time can be brutal. What works for me is investing in those I still have around me. Being vulnerable and honest and allowing myself to feel what I feel. It's the hardest thing I've ever done. My "coping" mechanism is by nature, avoidance. Learning to both enjoy the present and cherish the past is far from easy. If I do it every day I hope it will get easier. I know I'm not alone, even though sometimes I feel that way. I hope if you are having a hard time during the holidays that you'll reach out to someone else who needs a moment of hope. Be assured -- everyone needs hope.

Romance Lives Forever will not have guests on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Look for more starting the 27th. On Dec 31st I'll be sharing a note about what's ahead on RLF. There are some wonderful plans underway.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Worse, she has invited his childhood nemesis, "Mad Maddie" Winslow, to act as chaperone to the eligible debutantes. For her part, Magdalena Winslow hopes to go unnoticed.

About the Authors

Hannah Meredith, Anna D. Allen, and Kate Parker are three "mature" women whose imaginations are happiest in the past. Kate writes historical mysteries and currently has three series available. Hannah and Anna write primarily historical romance, although both of them have been known to wander into other genres. This is the third Christmas anthology in which all three have participated. Hannah lives in a small town with a big library in the Coastal Plains of NC. Anna resides in the deep woods of Michigan where she loves to cook and collect old cookware. Kate lives in a historic town in Eastern NC and studies poisons, much to the discomfort of her husband. All have individually won various awards, although since none of them was a Nobel Prize for Literature, they're not mentioning them.
