The month of February bring us many wonderful things. New Blaze releases, snow, snow and more snow for many of us in the USA, and of course, Valentine’s Day. This year, I was invited to participate in former Blaze author, Hope Tarr’s Scribbling Women and the Real-Life Heroes Who Love Them. Featuring one essay for each day of February, this anthology comprises nonfiction entries by bestselling romance and women’s fiction authors on how they met, wed, and love their real-life spouses and significant others. Contributors include Deanna Raybourn, Jacquie D’Alessandro, Julie Kenner, May McGoldrick and Lisa Renée Jones.

The truly wonderful thing about this collection? 100% of the proceeds go to Women In Need, Inc (WIN). As readers and writers of romance, we love happy-ever-after endings, something WIN works tirelessly towards, for the thousands of homeless women and children currently sleeping in NYC shelters each night.  To learn more about how WIN works to break the cycle of homelessness for women and their children, please click here.

As a contributor and fan of the other essays in the collection, I can honestly say this is not a red-hot read. But it is a true testament to the power of happy-ever-after love, and it supports a very worthy cause.  I hope you will check out Scribbling Women. And I will be back next month with more about my upcoming Blaze releases!

About the Book

In Scribbling Women and the Real-Life Romance Heroes Who Love Them, twenty-eight romance fiction writers from diverse subgenres reveal their real-life stories of how they met, wed and love—and are loved and supported by—their spouses and life partners. At times whimsical and laugh-out-loud funny (Jacquie D’Alessandro’s Donny & Me?, Nikoo and Jim McGoldrick’s Soul Mates for a Thousand Lifetimes), at others poignant and bittersweet (Elf Ahearn’s A Lost Friend, A Movie Star, A Man to Love Forever), all unfailingly inspiring (Lisa Renée Jones’s Unexpected Treasures; Deanna Raybourn’s Once in a Blue Moon), each essay celebrates that most powerful and sacred of human bonds: love.

Happily Ever After isn’t only the stuff of romance novels and fairy tales. It is every woman’s birthright.

Happy Reading!
