If you love romance like I love romance, you’re in heaven every time the Romance Writers Convention comes around. It’s a wonderful opportunity to learn more about the industry, meet your favorite authors, not to mention the awesome swag! The picture below shows some of my haul.  I thought my suitcase might burst, but we all made it home safely. Can’t wait to start reading!

Sexy Swag!

Musings from the Coast of Maine

Standard

WIN_20140717_130529Sitting on a porch overlooking the water on a pretty day in Maine, it’s hard not to feel blessed. There’s something very special about this place. Something that makes you slow down, take a deep breath, and appreciate the beauty of the nature that surrounds us.

Two years ago on this very porch, I started writing my first book, Once Upon A Wager. I’d run along the bay seen in this photo, and imagine characters and plots twists–mostly to keep my mind off my running. Setting pen to paper (make that fingertips to type pad) proved to one of the most freeing things I’ve ever done, but I could never have imagined that I’d be back here now, starting all over again.

Once Upon A Scandal is Jane’s story. Poor girl will take a bit of beating, but I’m sure there’s a happy ending out there for her.

If you’ve read Once Upon A Wager, thank you so much. Nothing has meant more to me during this whole process then hearing from people who’ve enjoyed my book. And if you’re interested in keeping up with Once Upon A Scandal, shoot me an email. I’ll be sure to keep you posted…

All the best,

Julie
