How author Brenda Sparks became a #1 Blogger 2 years in a row on #RLFblog @Brenda_Sparks

How Does Brenda do it?

Brenda Sparks managed to be the top blogger on Romance Lives Forever, two years in a row. How? I can tell you one thing, she talks about other authors who appear here and sends out tweets every week leading people back to her posts. In return, she gets a book listed on the front page of the blog for a year. Not shabby at all! See an example of one of her tweets below. It’s about her book, but it goes to the RLF blog. I think one secret is she cares and shares.

And what about Vicki Batman, who managed to get 40 comments on one blog post? What does she do to get people to read and comment? One thing about her that I know, she supports other authors, and she has an incredibly compelling personal story to tell. She and her husband, whom she always calls Handsome, have been going through a long battle with cancer. She’s shared her unfolding story each year during Cancer Awareness in October. Her readers love keeping up with her. I think one secret is her big heart.

How author Brenda Sparks became a #1 Blogger 2 years in a row on #RLFblog @Brenda_Sparks

Both Brenda and Vicki get a full year of advertising on RLF. Congratulations!

What kind of books do they write? Brenda writes Paranormal and Vicki writes Contemporary and Women’s Fiction. The other authors listed below are an interesting mix. Two write historical fiction, and several write suspense. The biggest draw on this site is romance, followed by contemporary, PNR (paranormal romance), romantic suspense, historical, contemporary, and sci fi. That last one is partly because it’s what I write and I sneak in a post every month myself. We have a large number of Sci Fi posts from others too. But those are not the only genres. We have everything except kidlit.

In 2019, There were many authors who did an amazing job of bringing visitors to the blog. After Brenda Sparks, the following authors are listed in order based on the number of visits they brought to the blog.

#1 Lyndell Williams
#2 Dee S Knight (Dee comments on RLF every day!)
#3 Kryssie Fortune
#4 NJ Walters
#5 Alina K Field
#6 Daryl Devore
#7 Alexa Aston
#8 Karen Cino
#9 Jami Gray
#10 Amber Daulton

Two authors whose visits were also high overall were Vicki Batman (surprised? not) and Lorelei Confer.

So how do you get to be a number one blogger and get your name out there where people can hear about you? Use Twitter. Share on Facebook. Pop it into your newsletter. Share pictures on Tumblr. Whatever works for you, use it to tell people where you are going to be. When an author shares it helps others as well as the author. Being a champion for others is what it’s all about.

Here’s the link to sign up for next year. I use SignupGenius to let you pick your own date, plus, you’ll get automated reminders so you don’t miss a scheduled visit.

My thanks to all the wonderful authors who have appeared on RLF during 2019. Here’s to a prosperous and successful 2020.

The Christmas Ballet by Constance Bretes

Laura Hemmingway cut herself off from men and her family when the man she loved married her sister. She moved across the country and was doing just fine until she received a devastating call to return to New York. She had to face the death of her sister, her sister’s little girl, Maria, and Maria’s father, Stefan—the man she had once loved. She figured she would pay her respects and leave as soon as possible. She never anticipated on the beautiful little girl stealing her heart. And she never expected that seeing Stefan again after twelve years would stir up old feelings.
Stefan’s life was complete. He had a successful career as an attorney, a beautiful wife, and an adorable six-year-old daughter. Although he and his wife had been married in name only for the past several years, he cared for her deeply. Then her unexpected death brought him face-to-face with his former lover, and the guilt he’d carried for years.
Stefan is still in love with Laura and wants to give her everything she deserves. He and Maria are racing against time to convince Laura to stay with them in New York.
Can a little girl’s love, and the true magic of Christmas, help Stefan convince Laura to stay and give their relationship another chance?

Her wish will be granted…Love Christmas Romance? Authors share their best @ConstanceBretes @DarylDevore @RomanceRegency @Luanna_Stewart #ChristmasRomance #RLFblog

When a mysterious note directs Miss Miranda Large to a tiny village in Cornwall to find her heart’s desire, she’d be a fool to not go. The excitement mounts when she meets a strange shopkeeper who claims that a magical keepsake will make possible her dream of marriage to a man with a title. But a snowstorm forces her to accept the hospitality of a sullen earl and Miranda fears she’s made a horrible mistake.

He’s given up hope…

Edward Penhallion, the 12th Earl of Claverlock, is not in the mood to search for yet another wife. He longs to be left alone with his books and his dreams of revenge. But the arrival of a headstrong, sharp-tongued spinster forces him to play the charming host. Not a difficult task, given her intelligence and beauty.

As the blizzard rages, Edward discovers there’s more to Miranda than a lively wit and a lovely face. And Miranda wonders if the trappings of

Daryl Devore’s latest is a sweet whimsical romance with a touch of mystery

Shamus McTavis is a wealthy bachelor with a mysterious family past. But more surprising is his resemblance to the stranger who offered her the red tulip.

Know the Heroine from Love in the Key of C

Here are some fun questions to help us know your heroine.

It’s late, she’s bored. What does she do?

Plays her flute. A gift from her Nana.

What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?

At the moment, she is always hungry. She fantasizes about hot chicken noodle soup.

Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.

Warm wooly sweaters and thick comfy socks.

Does she know how to fix things?

No. If she could, the first thing she’d fix is her life.

She tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.

Life.  Circumstances overwhelmed her and now she is living on the streets.

How does she act around children she doesn’t know?

Tense. She’d like to run and hide. She doesn’t want to hear their taunts. Her life at the moment is not what she’d planned.

What is she like first thing in the morning?

Scared about facing another day. If she buskers at a corner, will anyone donate? Can she make enough to find shelter and food for another night?

Can she use chopsticks?

It has been so long that she doesn’t know if she still can.

Does she drink coffee? If so, how does she take it? If not, what does she drink instead?

Hot coffee with lots of cream and sugar. That makes it sweet and fills the coldness in her stomach.

What apps would she have on her phone?

She has no phone. Phones cost money and every cent she gets is put towards food and shelter.

Android or iPhone?

When she has enough money to purchase a phone, whatever kind Ethan has.

Earrings or unpierced ears?

Pierced but no earrings to wear. They were stolen.

Tattoos or unadorned skin?

Unadorned.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

When she is lucky enough to afford it, public transport.

Recycle or toss?

Neither. Keep everything. It might become useful later.

Thanks for helping us get to know your heroine!

I needed a cute-meet to get the main characters together.

Reginald charges up to aand knocks Darcy over. After the initial shock, she immeditaley falls in love with the over-sized puppy.

What does this furbaby eat?

What is this furbaby’s natural habitat?

The acres of open space at Shamus’s estate and long walks in Central Park.

Describe a humorous incident involving the animal character.

Darcy is quietly tending to one of the gardens, placing out new spring flowers when she is knocked over by what she thought was a small elephant.

About Licorice and Ginny-furr

Fiction Furbaby: Meet Reginald from The Gift by Daryl Devore @darydevore @RobsRescues #RLFblog #PetsThis post is called Fiction Furbaby, but perhaps your own pet does not have fur. If you have a pet that has fins, wings, scales, or other features, please tell us about them here.

Which, if any of the pets in your writing are modeled after your own pets? In what way?

None of my pets, which over the years is about the equivalent of a zoo, none has ever made it to a book.

What do your pets do when you are writing?

The same thing they do when I am cleaning, cooking or anything else – they nap.

What’s the most unusual pet you ever had?

A blennie. It’s a kind of saltwater fish. I called it (we had no idea what gender it was) – Blenni and the Jets

Where did you find your pet?

Licorice is a black cat whose very young feral mom had her in our barn. The mom disappeared when Licorice was about 6 wks old and we rescued her. Ginny-furr was a drop off. We live in the country and city people think a domestic cat can survive when tossed out of the house. She was only a small kitten at the time and is very lucky that we accidently found her.

Note – life in the country is not idyllic for animals – especially in July heat which was when this poor little thing was tossed away.

What do you feed your pet?

According to them – I feed them all the wrong food. For two rescues, they certainly have gotten spoiled. There is always a bowl of water, a bowl of crunchies and some wet food.

Describe a toy or favorite item your pet loves.

We have probably 10 different versions of a toy mouse. Some squeak. Some look real. They are constantly being carried around the house, hidden then relocated and attacked.
