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.

Top Chatters for 2018

#Romance Lives Forever on #RLFblog Meet the top bloggers @NJWaltersauthor @Brenda_Sparks @VickiBatmanThe person who gets the most comments 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.
This year’s winner is Vicki Batman. This is not a surprise. Every time Vicki visits RLF she takes home either the top blogger or top chatter award and she was last year’s recipent of top blogger of the year.

Is It True: Blood Instincts by Marie Lavender @marielavender1 #RLFblog #ParanormalRomance #PNRWelcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Let’s play Is It True with today’s guest, Marie Lavender, author of Blood Instincts, a paranormal romance/urban fantasy with a futuristic angle. This is a game with yes and no questions. Writers can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

Blood Instincts by Marie Lavender

Genre: Paranormal Romance/Urban Fantasy
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Enter the Other World at your own risk…
What if you found out that you weren’t exactly…human?
Myah Sullivan is suddenly living that nightmare. There are Others in the world, dangerous, supernatural creatures that make her mind spin and cause her to question the reality she’s always known.
Oliver King is her savior, a vampire who tries to show her the way. Through her journey she learns far more than she ever thought she would about herself, and about the past. Soon, she discovers that there is so much more to meeting Oliver than mere happenstance.
Can Myah accept her new reality, or will she retreat into that normal, safe world she once thought was her own?

Is it true:

this is your first book?
No, I have been published since 2010.
this book is part of a series?
Yes, this novel is book two of the Blood at First Sight Series. This will be a trilogy when it’s all finished.
you lost sleep while writing this book?
LOL. Some sleep, yes. Often my characters keep me awake and won’t shut up until I write a scene or chapter.
you did research for this book?
Yes, I always do research for the books I write.
some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)
Of course. What would a paranormal romance be without different creatures? The Other World, as I call it, is comprised of various supernatural species. Those that this book touches on are vampires, shapeshifters, witches, pixies and fairies.
this book has more than one genre?
Yes, my books often cross genres. So there is definitely paranormal romance/urban fantasy with a hint of a futuristic realm.
you speak more than one language?
Sort of. Though I’m fluent in English, my Spanish is a bit rusty, and I only know a handful of French words.
you grew up where you live now?
Yes, I’m still in Indiana, in a small town.
you love to read?
Of course! I’ve always loved reading books. From the time I was a kid, my nose was buried in one. I found the fictional world a great escape.
you are never late?
Not because I want to be. I really hate being late, but sometimes it’s out of my hands. Or the muse has other ideas.
you love pizza?
I love pizza! My doctor has me on a gluten-free diet right now, though, so that puts a bit of a damper on things.
you love sushi?
Yes, I adore sushi. I think salmon or tuna might be my favorite, though I’m willing to try others. Just not the bizarre stuff.
you have a pet?
I have two cats, actually. Emma and Katerina (Kit Kat).

The Mad Monk’s Treasure by Kris Bock

The lost Victorio Peak treasure is the stuff of legends—a heretic Spanish priest’s gold mine, made richer by the spoils of bandits and an Apache raider. When Erin, a quiet history professor, uncovers a clue that may pinpoint the lost treasure cave, she prepares for adventure. But when a hit and run driver nearly kills her, she realizes she’s not the only one after the treasure. And is Drew, the handsome helicopter pilot who found her bleeding in a ditch, really a hero, or one of the enemy?
Erin isn’t sure she can trust Drew with her heart, but she’ll need his help to track down the treasure. She heads into the New Mexico wilderness with her brainy best friend Camie and a feisty orange cat. The wilderness holds its own dangers, from wild animals to sudden storms. Plus, the sinister men hunting Erin are determined to follow her all the way to the treasure, no matter where the twisted trail leads. Erin won’t give up an important historical find without a fight, but is she ready to risk her life—and her heart?
“The story has it all – action, romance, danger, intrigue, lost treasure, not to mention a sizzling relationship…”
“Great balance of history, romance, and adventure. Smart romance with an ‘Indiana Jones’ feel.”

Bucket list of Christian du Plessis from Heiresses in Love Trilogy @marielavender1 #RLFblog #HistoricalRomanceLet’s meet Christian du Plessis from Heiresses in Love Trilogy, a historical romance by Marie Lavender. 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.

Heiresses in Love Trilogy by Marie Lavender

Genre: Historical Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
An unforgettable, sweeping saga of romance, passion and history rooted in tales of maritime suspense…
Three heiresses…three novels like no other.
Upon Your Return
Fara risks her heart every time she’s with him, but she cannot deny him.
Upon Your Honor
Chloe never imagined that the man she deceived would be the one man she can’t stop loving.
Upon Your Love
Adrienne must decide whether to succumb to desire or fight for love.
…Will these remarkable women at last find what they’ve always wanted, or lose more than they can bear?

Questions for Christian du Plessis

When someone dies, we say they “kicked the bucket.” Therefore, a list of things that a person wants to accomplish, places to go, situations to experience, and so on have become known as a “Bucket List.”
Age: 27
Gender: Male
Birthplace: New Orleans, Louisiana
Profession: Gentleman, Investor, Duelist
Ethnicity: French-American
Please provide a physical description of yourself.
I am tall, muscular with black hair and black eyes. I am also tanned from working in the sunlight without a shirt.
Please tell us a little about yourself.
I came from a prominent family in New Orleans, but I left the comfort of home as soon as possible, just before my majority. I am an independent man of sorts, and I made a name for myself on my own.
Who is the significant other in your life?
I am not married as of yet, but there is a woman in town, Adrienne Bellamont Hill, who has caught my eye. Like myself, she is stubborn and chooses to do things herself. She also has some pursuits that most women don’t do. I would not mind at all getting to know her better.
If you haven’t made a bucket list before, perhaps now would be a good time. Who knows? It might inspire another book. While you’re at it, how about telling us about some of your other favorite things? Here are the questions.
What is your birth order?

If by that you mean am I a first-born son, no, that honor goes to my brother, Luc. But there are only two of us. We might’ve had another sister or brother, but my Maman died in childbirth when I was ten.
Tell us about your favorite toy as a child.
My favorite was a toy soldier. I often entertained that I was that soldier, going into battle honorably.
Describe your favorite food and how it’s prepared.
My favorite food is fried crab cakes. Seafood is plentiful around the coast.
Tell us about your best friend.
My closest friend is Pierce Laroque. He is a gentleman and successful scholar, and I would lay down my life for him. We met in school when we were children.
What are two places you would like to visit before you die, and why?
I have already visited many great cities in the states, but I would like to travel abroad, perhaps to France, where my parents originated before they came here. The other place I would enjoy visiting is Scotland. I’ve heard the folks are quite welcoming there.
Where is a place you would never like to return, and why?
My childhood home, the Arnould estate. I will never return. I do not stand to inherit a penny from my father, as Luc will have all of it, and I want nothing from the man in any case. We share too dark of a past to mention here.
Who is someone you would like to meet, and why?
Oh, I have a mind to set up an appointment with the man chasing my friend Pierce. He will pay for going after my chosen brother.
Who is someone you would like to avoid, and why?
Besides my family? I have made very few enemies. I get along with most people.
If you could time travel to any date, what would it be, and what would you do there?
Time travel? That is quite a fantastical thought. I’ve never heard of it before. But if you refer to visiting a time period in the past, I have always favored Roman tales.

Questions for Marie Lavender

What was your biggest challenge in writing this book?
I think the biggest challenge was when all the characters wanted their say at the same time, and I had to stop and listen to them to identify what the final book in the series was about.
Why did you choose this character for the interview today?
Christian is one of my favorite characters from the book; he and Adrienne are perfect for each other. I had a blast learning about them both during the writing process!
When writing the book, what did you discover about this character that surprised you?

There are many reasons he is wary of love, but you have to read the book to find out.
Are any sequels planned for this book?
No, there are three books in the series, and they wrap everything up just right.
What genre(s) would you like to write that you haven’t tried yet?

Maybe horror. I’ve started writing a story in that genre, but I haven’t finished it.
What would your readers be surprised to learn about you?
I have green eyes.
Why should readers who haven’t picked up one of your books before give this one a try?
Reading the boxed set of this book series will really give you a taste of my writing style. But I also write fantasy and paranormal romance, science fiction tales and even contemporary romance and romantic suspense stories.
Is there anything you’d like to say to your readers?

What are you waiting for? Grab a copy of this unique Victorian maritime romance saga. You’ll find nothing like it out there!
