Content Around The Web:

On Youtube:

  • Finding The Authorial VoiceWhen you’re looking to get published, people sure talk a lot about your ‘voice’. But what exactly is it? And how can you change yours? (A DisConIII/WorldCon panel)

On the Podcast “Writing Tips and Writerly Musings”:

  • If Your Writing Isn’t 3D, Layer It! – When I write, I’m pretty focused on the characters and what’s going on — both plotwise and in their heads. That can leave my descriptions… lacking. But! That’s okay, because you don’t have to get everything in during your rough draft! You can layer in detail.

On The Blog (In Case You Missed It):

  • Finding the Authorial Voice When you’re looking to get published, people sure talk a lot about your ‘voice’. But what exactly is it? And how can you change yours? (A DisConIII/WorldCon panel)

What I’ve Been Reading:

The latest Zoe Chant shifter romance, Hold My Bear.

Hold My Bear (Virtue Shifters Book 5)

If you can’t stand the heat, stay out of the kitchen…

Chef Charlee has spent a lifetime trying to outrun her difficult past. A head chef job in a small town might be the start of something new—but she never expected the boss to be more sizzling hot than anything she’s ever cooked! But Charlee has been burned before, so keeping her mind on the job is the only safe choice.

If only she would stop imagining the kitchen counter as a great place for a steamy rendezvous… (No, Charlee! No! You prepare food on that! Stop thinking that way! But he’s so handsome…!)

His new restaurant is his fresh start. But the head chef is the tastiest thing on the menu…

Bear shifter Steven has big plans to break away from his family’s brewhouse tradition. All he needs is a new town, a new restaurant, and a new…incredibly sexy, curvy chef who just happens to be his fated mate?! Now it’s not ambitions for the bistro that get him all fired up—it’s Charlee, and finding a way to coax her out of her shell.

Charlee doesn’t know about shifters, and Steven doesn’t know if this restaurant is really what he wants after all—but the more they work together, the more they become certain that above all else, what they want is…each other.

New Works By Previous Guests:

Nothing this week. Check back next time.

Picture(s) of the Week:

Look at my puppy brother Charlie all curled up on a blanket with a pillow, I think he thinks he’s people. He’s contemplating why he hasn’t had enough cuddles.
