To London, With Love by Dena Garson @DenaGarson #RLFblog #Steampunk #RomanceDena Garson, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about your book.

To London, With Love by Dena Garson

Genre Steampunk Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
After her brother is nearly killed while bringing sensitive information to his superiors, Margaret “Maggie” Ingleton takes it upon herself to complete his mission. All she has to do is deliver a letter to London. How hard can it be? Little does she realize that she’ll be risking not only her life, but that of the only man she’s ever loved.
When Colin Stanbury makes a routine delivery to his home city he never expects to pick up a stowaway. Maggie has always been a heady mix of proper lady and imp so finding her aboard his airship can only mean trouble. Despite Maggie’s claim that she needs to go to London to help a friend in need, he suspects she’s up to something. Yet he can’t help playing the gallant hero to her damsel in distress.

QUICK

Do you write more than one genre? If so, what are they?
I write in more than one subgenre of romance (paranormal, fantasy, scifi, steampunk, contemporary), but I only write romances.
How do you come up with ideas?
I usually see a scene in my head and then have to figure out who my characters are, what they are doing in that scene, and how they got to that point.
What is the single most important part of writing for you?
Outlining the story. If I can get that down then all the details fall into place easier.
When did you write your first book?
I started writing seriously after my second son was born, so about 14 years ago. Getting serious meant studying the publishing industry, taking writing workshops, and joining a writers group.

FUN

Leather or lace? Leather
Black or red? Black
Satin sheets or smooth cotton? Cotton
Ocean or mountains? Oceans
City life or country life? Country
Party life or evening at home? Evening at home
Dogs or cats? Hmmmm…. Both! But if ONLY one I guess cats.

Vordol's Vow by Dena Garson @DenaGarson #RLFblog #SciFi #RomanceDena Garson, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about your book.

Vordol’s Vow by Dena Garson

Genre Sci-Fi Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
A long time ago Vordol Silveira learned that if he wanted to become the best bodyguard in the galaxy he needed to keep everyone except his brothers at arm’s length. That vow served him well until he runs into the now grown-up daughter of his former mentor while working a security job aboard the LS Quantum.
Pitannah Lorento is a Quantum waitress who dreams of winning this year’s intergalactic burlesque competition in order to pay for her mother’s expensive medical treatment. Seeing Vordol again brings back years of unfulfilled desires – a distraction she doesn’t need. Yet, she’s no longer an awkward teenager and he is sexier than ever.
Vordol’s client’s safety has always come first but when Pitannah is threatened, his heart demands he make her his priority. If he somehow manages to keep them both safe through the competition, his vow may become obsolete.

Why did you write this book?
Two reasons. One, there were several secondary characters in Rege’s Rescue that I wanted to follow up on to see how their stories turned out. And two, I couldn’t pass up an opportunity to write in the world that the ladies with SFR Shooting Stars created. The LS Quantum star cruiser was a fun setting to explore.
What is your favorite genre to read?
Romance. I hop between historical, paranormal, sci-fi, fantasy, and contemporary based on my mood.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
Kinda depends on the day. I love so many – from Scooby Doo to Princess Leia to Mr. Darcy. There are just too many to pick only one!!
What are you working on at the moment?
I’m outlining another steampunk romance and finishing a contemporary romance.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
I plan to do a Christmas steampunk romance at the end of this year. And if I get my butt into gear and finish my contemporary, I’d like to release it by year end also.

Top Chatters for the Month

#Romance Lives Forever @VickiBatman @DenaGarson #RLFblogThe person who gets the most comments in a month is not always the person who gets the most page views. For that reason, I instituted the Top Chatter Award. This award is for the bloggers who receive the most comments.

New Server — New Power

RLFblog has attracted so many visitors we crashed the server three times in the past month. On September 20th, we had no visitors on the blog so that we could move to a new, more powerful and roomier server. This should hold us for a bit! It also means I can add even more services. Look for new things in 2018, such as Free Book Friday and other goodies for readers (and authors)!

Not only does RLF post automatically to Triberr with a reach of several million, each post is also featured on the Romance Lives Forever Pinterest board http://www.pinterest.com/kayelleallen/romance-lives-forever-rlfblog/ as well as on Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/RomanceLivesForever/ and Twitter https://www.twitter.com/kayelleallen When you like, follow and share it increases the reach. Thank you for sharing with your readers and friends!
