RLF Gems 
In June, Romance Lives Forever had 30 posts in a 30 day
month. Here are the top posts (judging by page views). Liquid Silver Books
would have taken the entire prize because they broke every record set on the
blog. They filled in an entire 7 days during Publishers Week from June 2nd – 8th. However, I adjusted the settings to give them top place, and filled in
the rest of the top five with the authors who came next in pageviews.
1. Liquid Silver Books (Flash Fiction Day shot numbers through the roof!)
2. Eva Caye
3. TD Hassett
4. Big Gay Wedding (Tour), Rosemary Lynch
5. Rick Reed
Honorable mention: Kara Leigh Miller

Teghan Jacobs didn’t
think anything could be worse than learning she’s pregnant by a man she’s been dating
less than six months. Boy, was she wrong. Her mother, whose drowning in the river
of denial, refuses to take a side on the issue. And her overbearing, manipulative
father threatens to disown her and cut her off from her trust fund if she doesn’t
have an abortion.
Donnie Marks couldn’t
be happier. The woman he loves, the woman he fought so hard to be with, is going
to have his baby. Life has never been better. But when she shows up in his dorm
room, sobbing and heartbroken, he learns the horrible truth of what happened. He
vows to get revenge on the man who’s responsible: Teghan’s father.

Interview

What is the most important thing you do for your career now,
as compared to when you first started writing?
I have more of an online presence. I try to spend an hour or
two each day interacting with other authors, bloggers, readers, fans, etc. I spend
a lot of time on Twitter, which has led to some great new friends and wonderful
contacts. I also take the advice of my critique partner a lot more seriously now
than I did before. He tends to be right about a lot of things. Lol.
What do you enjoy most about writing?
The spark of a new idea. I thrive on that feeling. It’s better
than any drug. I have so many ideas and not nearly enough time to write all of them.
So, I keep a notebook with all my ideas in it. Someday I’ll get to write them. Hopefully.
What is your work ethic when it comes to writing?
I’m a workaholic when it comes to writing. My husband gets upset
with me because he says that’s all I ever do. I take my writing very seriously.
This isn’t a hobby for me, it’s a job, my passion. I devote a good eight hours (at
least) every day to writing, marketing, and research.
How do you cope with stress as an author?
Chocolate! Lots and lots of chocolate! No, seriously, when I
find myself getting stressed out, (like I am right now trying to keep up with two
blog tours, my responsibilities as an editor for Entranced Publishing, five kids,
writing three books simultaneously, and doing some freelance work) I sit down and
take a moment to prioritize. I figure out which projects need my attention the most–usually
because of an impending deadline–and I make a list. I’ve also found that if I look
at things in smaller chunks, things don’t seem so overwhelming. I find that taking
a walk or zoning out in front of a movie for a while helps, too.
Do things your family or friends do ever end up in a book?
Of course! In fact, in Death
of a Waterfall
there is a scene where Teghan and her friends are talking about
the first time they all got drunk. Teghan had a “brilliant” idea to go
swimming, but once she got to the pool she was afraid if she got in, she’d drown,
so instead she passed out on a lounge chair. That’s true story of what happened
to me and a friend during high school.
What are some jobs you’ve done before (or while) you were
a writer?
Huh, wow, I’ve had a lot of jobs. Let me see, I’ve worked in
fast food (Arby’s & McDonalds), as a paralegal, an assistant in a leasing office,
a freelance writer on Elance.com, and now I’m an Associate Editor for Entranced
Publishing.
What kind of books do you read when taking a break from your
own writing?
I read primarily romance, mostly contemporary, young adult, dystopian,
and paranormal. On occasion I’ll pick up a Stephen King or James Patterson novel.
My go-to authors are Ryan Winfield, Julie Ann Walker, and Lora Leigh.
What is your favorite holiday and why?
Halloween! I’ve always been a huge fan of horror movies, so I
love the concept of a holiday where the goal is to scare people. Plus, it’s that
time of year when the weather is starting to cool down, the leaves on the trees
are changing colors, and my kids are back in a routine of going to school every
day.
What good book have you read recently?
Isle of Man by Ryan Winfield.
It’s the second book in his Park Service Trilogy and it was so much better than
the first. Every time I talk about this book, I get goose bumps. The ending was
horrific (in a good way) and I can’t seem to shake it.
If you were a color, what color would you be?
Cerulean blue because blue is my favorite color and cerulean
sounds exotic and tropical. And it’s just a really pretty color.
Please underline which statement is more like you:
“I am a vacation spa because I am laid back and relaxed.”
“I am a ten-countries in ten-days tour vacation, because
I do things as fast as possible.”

Please complete the sentences

I love pizza with extra cheese and lots of meat.
I’m always ready for a nap.
When I’m alone, I talk aloud to myself.
You’d never be able to tell, but I used to be really shy.
If I had a halo it would be a miracle.
If I could afford it I’d hire an assistant.
I can never take a cruise because my husband won’t go with me.
