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.

Tricia Schneider author of The Witch’s Kiss @TriciaSchneider #RLFblog #paranormalromance

Tricia Schneider author of The Witch’s Kiss answers five easy questions to help readers get to know her better.

Author Bio

Tricia Schneider is an author of paranormal and gothic romance. Before the supernatural took possession of her pen, she worked for several years in a Waldenbooks store as Assistant Manager and bookseller. Since the closing of the bookstore, she now writes full-time while raising her 4 young children. She lives with her musician husband and 2 neurotic cats in the coal country of Pennsylvania
What's your favorite down-home family style meal?
I’m the fortunate wife of a man who loves to cook. Since I tend to burn everything I try to create in the kitchen, this situation works well for us. Marc makes many amazing dishes, but my favorite is grilled salmon with a baked sweet potato. He also makes delicious meatloaf and lasagna, too. 
Describe the perfect vacation.
About 10 years ago, my husband and I visited some friends in Germany. We fell in love with area so much that we considered moving there. Since we didn’t get to see everything that was on our list during that trip, my perfect vacation would be going back there. Hiking trails in the Black Forest to visit the castles that are nestled in the hills, spending a relaxing day visiting the Marktplatz while eating an ice cream cone, sipping Hefeweissbier and people watching at a village cafĂ©, and walking the cobblestone streets with my husband’s hand in mine are a few of the things I’d like to do.
Tell us about your favorite toy as a child.
My bicycle. It was something I had wanted for years. When I was about 9, my grandmother bought one for me. I practiced riding up and down the driveway every day, falling and scraping my arms and knees (my parents saw no need for protective pads or helmets back in the ‘80s). Every time I fell, I’d get right back up and try again. I was so happy when I finally learned how to ride. I spent countless hours riding my bike every summer for years.
What are your hobbies?
I like crafts. Cross-stitch and crotchet are my favorite, usually in the winter while watching hockey games on TV with Marc. I’m also an amateur genealogist. Researching my family tree has been a hobby of mine since I was a teenager and first learned from my grandmother that I had American Indian ancestry. On my search for my native ancestors, I also wanted to discover where my red hair came from when both of my parents were born with dark brown.
When you read for pleasure, what kind of books do you choose?
I read anything. Really. If it has words, I’ll read it. While romance has always been my favorite genre since I was a teen, I also enjoy reading urban fantasy and classical literature. My favorite authors are Kelley Armstrong, Gayle Wilson, Julia Quinn, Daphne du Maurier, Jane Austen and Charlotte Bronte.

Marianne Grey is a ghost. But, she's not dead. Cursed by a necromancer, Marianne searches for the elusive spell needed to merge her spirit with her physical body. She's not alone in her search. Her neighbor and best friend, Sage Merriweather, has vowed to help her break the curse.
