Top Blogger of 2018: Brenda Sparks

#Romance Lives Forever on #RLFblog Meet the top bloggers @NJWaltersauthor @Brenda_Sparks @VickiBatman As I looked at this list of names, I wondered if people would think I was only giving out this award to friends. That’s true, partially. Each has become a friend over the last year or has been for a long time. Hosting this site gives me a unique opportunity to get to know many authors. But the statistics speak for themselves. When I pulled year long stats from the backside of the blog, these were the names that floated to the top.

Brenda Sparks made the list as top blogger due to having the most page views throughout the entire year. She also promoted the blog itself. I was tickled when I looked at the stats and saw her name right at the top, because in my mind, she certainly deserved the appause. Please do visit her post and check out her book, Alpha Pair. Brenda wins a year of cover ads on RLF.

Top Blog Posts of 2018

Below are the titles and links to the top ten posts of the year. There are some interesting statistics I’d like to point out.

Of these, two were from the Cancer Awareness series (Vicki Batman and Iris Blobel). Four were paranormal romance. Four were historical. Two fantasy, and two were LGBT. If these don’t add up to ten it’s because some posts covered more than one genre. I invite you to click and visit each of these. They will be well worth your time.

For that reason, I instituted the Top Chatter Award. This award is for the bloggers who receive the most comments.

Mystic, Urban Fantasy by Gabi Stevens @GabiStevens #RLFblog #urbanfantasy Welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Today’s guest is Gabi Stevens, author of Mystic, an urban fantasy.

Mystic by Gabi Stevens

Genre: Urban Fantasy

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG 13

How could a good deed go so wrong?

Trask Sinclair enjoys his life as a famous author living in New York City. His greatest adventures come from the characters in his books. But after stepping in to protect a woman on the run–a woman with eyes that speak of hidden depth, intrigue, and loneliness–Trask is suddenly pulled into a world he never could have written.

Allys Joel sees the future when she touches someone. That’s why a Wall Street firm held her prisoner for sixteen months. Escaping, with Trask’s help, puts both their lives at risk. When conventional travel proves impossible, they must journey cross-country to get to the safety of the mysterious town of Mystic, Wyoming. As they fight for their lives, their freedom, and a possible budding romance, they must come face to face with the reality–and secrets–that may change their lives forever.

Welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Let’s play Is It True with today’s guest, Gabi Stevens, author of Mystic, an urban fantasy. This is a game with yes and no questions. Writers can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

As they fight for their lives, their freedom, and a possible budding romance, they must come face to face with the reality—and secrets—that may change their lives forever.

Is it true:

this is your first book?
Not true. Mystic is my fourteenth published book, but only the sixth under the name Gabi Stevens.
this book is part of a series?
True. This is the first of a planned series about the mysterious town of Mystic and its inhabitants.
you lost sleep while writing this book?
True. But then again, I’m a poor sleeper.
you did research for this book?
True. I spent time in a friend’s RV, which plays a role in the story. I contacted the Cheyenne Airport for information about flights, planes their airport could handle, and private jets. And I read extensively about goats, King Arthur legends, and animal communication. Try tying all those things together.
some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)
Definitely! I don’t want to spoil anything, but creatures play a big role in this book.
this book has more than one genre?
True. It’s a little romance, a little humor, a little fantasy.
you speak more than one language?
True. In addition to English, I am fluent in Hungarian and German, and I studied Latin for many years.
you grew up where you live now?
Not true. I grew up in SoCal, went to boarding school in Colorado, college in New York, Germany, and California, and grad school in Illinois. Finally I ended up in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
you love to read?
True. I believe my day is wasted unless I have read something that day. It’s an addiction. If I run out of books, I’ve been known to read my husband’s engineering periodicals.
you are never late?
True. I am on time always. Can’t help it.
you love pizza?
Not true. While I eat pizza sometimes, I’d rather have a burger any day.
you love sushi?
True. I would eat sushi everyday if I could.
you have a pet?
True. Two dogs presently—a cockapoo and a boxer mix.
