RLF Blog 
Thank you for a great 2015! The Romance Lives Forever blog grew,
and some wonderful features were added. For the year, there were 351 posts.

Social Media

The link between the blog and Paper.li helped get out the word about blog posts.
The paper is an online daily ezine, and this one posts to Twitter. The blog uses
the hashtag #RLFblog, and you can click on Twubs
to check its reach.
Triberr did a great
job of sharing the news as well. Because of my followers, the tribemates I associate
with, and their followers, RLF has a reach of over 3.5 million. The program works
because it brings new readers, and reminds current ones of new material. It provides
an average of 45 – 50 mentions on Twitter every day, and since each post has the
guest author’s Twitter handle in the title, that means the guest gets mentioned
too.
Networked Blogs helped by posting automatically to Facebook.
The blog goes to several pages, and is often shared. Did you know the blog has its
own Facebook page? Come over and like the page, and then share the day’s post, especially
if you’re one of the guests.

make sales. You’ll find full instructions inside each document.
A book release includes a brief questionnaire about the reason

Is your hero an alpha male? You might enjoy seeing how he reacts to these.
Not just a female version of Stressing the Hero, this interview
focuses on the female aspect. How well will your heroine handle herself?

A Devilish Slumber 

Shereen Vedam shares details about the creation of Phillip in the book A Devilish Slumber.

About the Book

Title A Devilish Slumber (The Rue Alliance Book 1)
Genre Regency Fantasy Romance
Author Shereen Vedam
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13
The last of her family, Rose is mired in grief at the recent death of her beloved sister and the abandonment by the man she loves. Wanting to avoid the cloying attention of friends, servants and well-wishers, she becomes a recluse. Then one day, she meets a woman who reminds Rose of her gentle mother . . . and then news comes of her new friend’s brutal murder. Rose refuses to accept this latest blow lying down. So she resurrects an ancient, magical, family talent to re-shape her features in order to disguise herself as a young man, and goes hunting for her friend’s killer through London’s seedier lanes and dangerous dockyards.
Sir Phillip, the Regent’s favored spy, returns from war determined to win back the woman he was forced to leave three years ago. But when he witnesses Rose covered in blood, racing from a brutal scene while gripping the murder weapon, he goes on a desperate mission to unravel what he hopes is a case of mistaken identity.
Will Rose ever get her happily-ever-after? Possibly. But first, she’ll have to convince Phillip of her innocence-before the killer strikes again . . .

Introducing Phillip Jones

Name: Sir Phillip Crispin Jones
Age: 23 years old
Gender: Male
Birthplace: London, England
Profession: the Regent’s favored intelligence officer
Describe Phillip’s body build, skin tone, height and weight. Include any unique features such as dimples, freckles, or scars: 6′, lean, agile, narrow face, strong, generous, courageous, passionate and thrives on fast-paced adventures
Who is the significant other in Phillip’s life?
Lady Roselyn (Rose) Ravenstock
Tell us about this character, please.
Rose was inspired by the fairy tale character, Sleeping Beauty. She is the twenty-one year old daughter of an earl, who only wants peace and quiet to come to terms with an unquenchable sorrow and overwhelming remorse. Though none of it was her fault, she feels as if she might be jinxed to bring harm to anyone who cares for her. To avoid entanglements, Rose has become a recluse, even discharging all of her well-meaning but clinging servants. All but one, a loyal young maid fleeing her own troubled family who insists on staying to the point of harming herself with her incessant knocking at Rose’s front door. Rose relents and allows her to come inside and care for a now secluded house and its lonely, heartbroken mistress.
On what special skills does Phillip rely?
Phillip is an Intelligence Office for the Regent in 1814, London, England. He is often sent to war-torn Europe to infiltrate enemy camps and unearth military secrets. He has a keen sense for noting details and a quick wit that has helped him stay alive in dangerous times. Possessing a naturally suspicious mind, he also has a particular knack for uncovering deception.
What kinds of things does Phillip always carry?
He never leaves home without two things: 1) a walking stick with a handy rapier, a long thin sword, hidden within, and, 2) a circular tinderbox and accompanying candle, for his late night prowls down dark alleyways in search of suspects.
Is Phillip close to family?
He loves his cousin Rufus like a brother, but they had a falling out after a childhood misunderstanding resulted in Rufus paying a steep price for something Phillip had done. Though Rufus seems to hold no grudges, Phillip has never forgiven himself for that mistake.
Can Phillip keep a secret (why or why not)?
Phillip keeps lots of secrets. Though recently, one of his best kept secrets was leaked to the press.
What is Phillip’s biggest need at the beginning of the story?
Before she sent him away, Rose accused Phillip of being unable to trust anyone. So he wants to quiet his constantly probing mind in order to perceive the good in people as well as he does their darkness.
Who has the power to hurt Phillip the most and why?
Phillip’s first attempt to practice his rusty trusting skills is to befriend a young stranger he meets while on a case. Ben Turner is searching for the same ruthless killer that Phillip hunts. Except Ben has a secret that could devastate Phillip, and shake his ability to trust in anyone ever again, especially Rose.
What is Phillip willing to give up to win Rose’s heart?
He is willing to give up his lifelong goal to right wrongs.

About Your Writer

Shereen Vedam 

To honor the person who chose to share your story, please answer the following questions.

What do you wish your writer had not told others about you?
My role as the Regent’s Intelligence Officer is a sensitive one that relies on absolute secrecy. Except, thanks to Shereen, I am now the talk of London. The events in her last book resulted in my greatest secret, my clandestine work for the Regent, being spilled to the press. As a result, the rags have even been printing cartoons about me! A cartoon. Can you believe it? My life’s work is now a public joke.
Is there anything you’d like to say to Shereen?
Considering my answer above, it might surprise you to learn that I wish to thank Shereen. For NOT portraying me a deuced deluded dummy. Did you read her first draft? She made me out to be some sort of idiot who couldn’t find a worm in an apple orchard. Thank heavens her final draft acknowledged my detecting skills as exemplary. And she also gave me a chance to win Rose back, not just her love but her invaluable friendship. For that latter accomplishment, I might even forgive Shereen for the cartoon catastrophe.

Firebird 
This quick interview includes info about the author, and introduces
the story.

Interview with Jennifer Loring

Jennifer Loring’s short fiction has appeared in numerous magazines,
webzines, and anthologies. In 2013, she won Crystal Lake Publishing’s inaugural
Tales from the Lake writing competition; in 2014, DarkFuse published her novella
Conduits, and in May 2015, Omnium Gatherum released her debut novel, Those of My
Kind. She recently signed a deal for a contemporary romance trilogy with Limitless
Publishing; the first book, Firebird, was published on October 20, 2015. Jennifer
lives in Philadelphia, PA with her husband, their turtle, and two basset hounds.
Why did you write this
book?
The idea originally came to me in a dream: What would happen
if a woman ran into her high school sweetheart, now a famous hockey player, one
night at a bar and one thing led to another? What if she was already in a relationship?
I’m a huge hockey fan, and I couldn’t get the idea out of my head, especially when
I started taking it further. What if he suffered a horrible injury on-ice, and how
would that affect their relationship?
What is your favorite
genre to read?
Horror and dark fantasy, actually. I first read Stephen King
when I was 11. Horror is what made me want to become a writer.
Who is your favorite character
from fiction (not including your own)?
That’s a tough one. I’m just going to throw a few out there.
Irrylath from Meredith Ann Pierce’s The Darkangel Trilogy; Constantine from Robin
McKinley’s Sunshine; Zach from Poppy Z. Brite’s Drawing Blood; Elphaba from Wicked.
What are you working on
at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
I’m working on the second book in the Firebird Trilogy as well
as a paranormal romance. I have a couple of short stories coming out in anthologies
as well. I’m also writing a proposal for a sci-fi romance novella, and toying with
the idea of a hockey romance novella for next Christmas.
Please tell us about your
latest book.
Stephanie Hartwell is a journalist chasing the story of her career…
When superstar hockey player and notorious bad boy Aleksandr
Volynsky is traded to the Seattle Earthquakes in a blockbuster deal, Stephanie demands
the opportunity to prove herself by scoring an exclusive interview with a man with
no love for the media…the same man she once thought, as a naïve teenager, she’d
someday marry.
An Olympian and Stanley Cup Champion, Aleksandr has achieved
every goal he’s ever set…
Now expected to carry a failing team on his shoulders, Aleksandr’s
troubles deepen when he encounters Stephanie after a season-opening loss. His lifestyle
of drinking and random hookups has been a futile attempt to forget the beautiful
tomboy who stole his heart nine years ago. And worse, fame and fortune have made
it impossible for him to trust anyone—especially Stephanie, who is engaged to another
man.
Romance rekindles, but tragedy reveals Aleksandr’s dark side…
Being with Aleksandr in the first place jeopardizes Stephanie’s
journalistic integrity and threatens her career, and when he spirals out of control,
it reawakens fears from her own history, making her unable to commit to a future
with him.
When Aleksandr discovers the truth behind his self-destructive
behavior, will his newfound self-awareness be enough to convince Stephanie to give
him one last chance…
Or will his revelation drive her away for good?

Scarlett Wong has a reputation for toughness. A talented and
often feared Creative Director at an award-winning Sydney advertising agency, she
doesn’t do relationships, she doesn’t invite men home, and she never stays the night.
The only people who see her softer side are her three closest girlfriends, and they’re
finally convinced they’ve found her perfect man: John Hart.
Scarlett’s never been one to back down from a challenge and she’s
not going to start now. But when John secures Scarlett an invitation from one of
New York’s leading galleries to exhibit her artwork, it means putting herself out
there like never before. Scarlett’s perfect man wouldn’t interfere in her life like
this – would he?
For a woman who thinks she’s not scared of anything, Scarlett
is about to discover she’s not as tough as she thinks. Will she take the chance
to turn her secret passion into a career, risk the safety of her advertising career
and let John in? Or will old habits die that little bit too hard?
