Romance Writers Weekly – What’s Going On?

Hello my lovelies!

I hope your summer has been an excellent one. Mine has been way busy, that’s for sure, but it’s been productive.

Those of you that hang out in the Asylum know that I’ve made quite a few changes to the Calum Series, which is why book two has been delayed for so long. When Fiona Riplee posed this week’s RWW topic – What Are You Working On? – I just had to jump into the loop. Did you catch what A.S. Fenichel has on deck? I’m really looking forward to her next release, The Tainted Bride. [Read More…]

FoX Friday with Outlander’s Scott Kyle!

Hello my lovelies! It’s a first for FoX Friday as I welcome actor/producer Scott Kyle.

Scott has a string of stage, film and TV credits to his name, and is best known to most of us as Ross on the Starz series, Outlander. It sounds very glamorous, doesn’t it? He’s picked up by a driver and taken to the film location, escorted into his trailer where he is served breakfast, and anything he needs is brought to him. Costume and make-up staff come to prepare him, and he’s escorted onto the set.

“But it’s not glamorous,” he explains, “actually you’re just a cog in a wheel – you’re picked up and waited on hand and foot so that the producers know exactly where you are at all times and you’ll be ready when you’re needed on set.” And he is conscious that if he messes up there is a long queue of actors behind him who fit the bill and he could simply be replaced. Such is the precariousness of earning a living as an actor.

Scott is also the Artistic Director and Manager of the Bathgate Regal Community Theatre in Scotland. He spent years touring with his own theatre company. Wary of the high unemployment rates of actors, he is passionate about improving prospects for young actors and getting people into theatres. I invited him to stop by today and he was gracious enough to accept! [Read More…]

Come see me at RWA in San Diego!

Hey, my lovelies, I’m San Diego bound!

CalumMe_600As I prepare for the release of Calum Me Maybe, I’ll be hanging out with thousands of fellow romance writers at the annual RWA conference. It’s hard to believe that I’ve been a member for only three years. So much has happened in that short time. In the last eighteen months, I released a novella, two novels, and a short story.

This spring, I signed with the Lori Perkins Agency, repped by the lovely Latoya Smith. Me, with an agent. Can you believe it? So many words to write, but I am enjoying every minute of it. 🙂

But back to RWA and sunny Southern California.

Wednesday night, hundreds of authors – including myself – will sign books at the “Readers for Life” Literacy Autographing. Check it out!
