Top Chatters for the Month

RLF Top Chatter
Because the person who gets the most comments in a month is not always the person who gets the most page views per month, I instituted the Top Chatter Award. This is the award for the person who receives the most comments. It goes to the top three people in that category. To win, a guest must have five or more comments (not counting the guest author's).

Romance Lives Forever features authors and new books. It has a blogger's FAQ page with a downloadable guide and six optional interviews. Readers can follow via Google+, Networked Blogs, Linky Followers, email, an RSS feed, and there's a blog button readers and authors can grab. Authors can share previous books. The blog uses author or publisher names as tags on posts, and author Twitter handles in the titles. The site is broadcast over Triberr with a potential reach of over 3.5M readers via its Twitter-linked network. Twitter mentions are also gathered in several Paper.li ezines, giving the author additional opportunities for promotion. The Romance Lives Forever Paper.li ezine features only guest authors, and the day's guest is on its front page every day.

Luanna Stewart author of Portrait of a Girl @Luanna_Stewart #RLFblog #romantic suspense

Luanna Stewart author of Portrait of a Girl answers five easy questions to help readers get to know her better.
Author Bio
Luanna Stewart has been creating adventures for her imaginary friends since childhood. As soon as she discovered her grandmother's stash of romance novels, all plots had to lead to a happily-ever-after.
Born and raised in Nova Scotia, Luanna now lives in Maine with her dear husband, two college boys and two cats. When she's not torturing her heroes and heroines, she’s in her kitchen baking something delicious.
Writing under the pen name Grace Hood, she has two novellas published with The Wild Rose Press. She is excited to have a book published under her own name with Entangled Publishing.

What's your favorite down-home family style meal?
Roast chicken, mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole (the kind with a streusel topping), roasted Brussels sprouts, and gravy. Chocolate cake for dessert.
What is your go-to meal when you dine out?
If I got to choose the cuisine, it would be Italian. I would get either a vodka cream sauce, or a mushroom cream sauce over pasta, a green salad with the house vinaigrette, and I’d dip my crusty bread in olive oil. I would have wine with dinner, and a limoncello liqueur afterward. I would also have dessert, because I always eat dessert, hehe.
Describe the perfect vacation.
The vacation I’m dreaming about, and saving for, is a trip to Scotland. I’ll rent a cottage in the highlands for a couple weeks and immerse myself in the culture. I’ll visit the area my ancestors hailed from and sprinkle a pinch of my dad’s ashes there.
What are your hobbies?
My current #1 hobby is knitting. I learned to knit as a child and dabbled now and then, but got serious about it within the past ten years. Everyone in my family gets something hand knit for Christmas. And I’m building a good collection of sweaters, socks, and shawls for me. When I sit down in front of the TV in the evenings, I pick up my knitting.
Before the knitting, I was mad about counted cross stitch. And yes, everyone in my family got something cross stitched for Christmas, hehe.
When you read for pleasure, what kind of books do you choose?
Sometimes I’m in the mood for mysteries - British set, cozy style are my favorites. Other times I prefer a nice, thick, historical romance that whisks me away to a time when ladies wore gloves and changed their gowns a few times a day, and men knew how to waltz.

About the Book
Title Portrait of a Girl
Genre romantic suspense
Author Luanna Stewart
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
When her wealthy art dealer father died, Heather James was expecting a fortune. Instead, his bank account was empty and Heather’s working in a bakery, wondering exactly what happened to her father's millions...until someone tries to kill her.
Tony Simons is on the trail of an art theft cold case that's practically giving him frostbite. He's hoping that by sticking close to Heather—the daughter of his deceased prime suspect—he'll find the answers he needs. Instead, he's finding himself distracted by a gorgeous woman who drives him crazy in every way imaginable…
Now Tony's in serious trouble. Even if Heather can't—or won't—tell him where the stolen paintings and money are, she may well have stolen his heart.
And now someone wants her dead…
