Romance Reviewers, Bloggers, & Supporters Make My Day!

Hi everyone–
I want to share a couple of wonderful things that have happened lately. Authors work hard to promote themselves — blog tours, Facebook Pages, Twitter, and so much more — but occasionally things just happen without you’re planning or knowing. These are two.

Recently, blogger Jessie Potts who contributes to the Happy Ever After Blog for USA Today included Hearts and Flour in her rundown of three favorite books that include sugar and spice. Here’s the LINK.

She said “This is a super sweet m/m romance between two unlikely characters. Which is exactly why I love reading Tara. She molds the most unique characters, then puts them in interesting situations.”

And then she said, “This is one of those books that makes you feel good when reading. There are some awesomely sweet moments. If you’re in the mood for a feel-good book with two hotties, check out Hearts and Flour.”
Needless to say, that made my day!

Then on the heels of that lovely experience, Anders Rodskar of Queer Town Abbey asked if i would like to be their Featured Author of the Month for June. You can imagine how fast i said yes! The post just went up today. If you have a minute, check it out HERE. He also made the charming captioned picture that i featured above. 

Thank you to all the wonderful and dedicated reviewers, bloggers, and supporters of the romance genre in general and the LGBT romance genre specifically. It’s impossible to say how special you are and how much we appreciate your support. : )


Hey Mom! Tara Lain in USA Today

Hi everyone–
What a fun surprise. Our MM romance panel ended up all over the USA Today Happy Ever After Blog thanks to Mary Grzesik and Jessie Potts, bloggers extraordinaire, who attended the workshop. Mary also featured the news about the upcoming Tara Lain book, F.A.S.T. Balls which she actually named in my naming contest. Isn’t it great? It stands for Firefighter Assist and Search Team. (That’s Mary on the left). We had a delightful lunch after our MM panel and Jessie joined us, so she blogged about that and also told the world some of our book titles.

That USA Today has chosen to feature the world of romance fiction in a blog shows their finger on the pulse of modern culture. Choosing such talented bloggers shows good sense!

It was a treat to see so many the great representatives of romance fiction at RT. I was honored to be with them. Here is the link to the USA Today Blog:
