Romance Lives Forever features authors and new books. It has a
blogger’s FAQ page with a downloadable guide and optional interviews. Readers
can follow via Google Friend Connect, Networked Blogs, Bloglovin’, Linky
Followers, email, an RSS feed, and there’s a blog button readers and authors
can grab. RLF takes up to three images per article, so authors can share
previous books. The blog uses author or publisher names as SEO tags on posts,
and author Twitter handles in the titles. The site is broadcast over Triberr
with a potential reach of over a million readers via its Twitter-linked
network. Twitter mentions are also gathered in several ezines, giving
the author additional opportunities for promotion. The Romance Lives Forever ezine
features guest authors on its front page every day.

Hi everyone. Tara Lain here. I’m so delighted to be here at RLF
today! This is an exciting week, because my new release, Wolf in Gucci Loafers,
came out recently. One of the first things people tell me when they hear about the
book is that they love the title which delights me because I love creating titles.
Maybe it’s because my day job is in advertising and for years I’ve had to come up
with headlines. Headlines are a lot like titles. They have to encapsulate something
essential about the book while attracting readers and getting them to pay attention.
Wolf in Gucci Loafers is like that. Right off, you know that this book is probably
paranormal, right? My hero is a wealthy, aristocratic, half human/half werewolf
who is also gay and pretty flamboyant. He’s kind of a Zorro character in that he
pretends to be a lot more effete than he is. In truth, he’s a bit of a bad ass,
while maintaining his love of fashion and fast electric cars. I tried to create
a title that suggested a bit of this “mood” of the book. A bit playful
and a little mysterious. Below, I’ve posted a nibble from Wolf in Gucci Loafers.
I hope you enjoy it.

Buy This Book

Socialite Lindsey Vanessen wants someone to love who will love
him back—an impossibility for a gay, half-human, half-werewolf. Too aggressive for
humans, too gay for wolves, and needing to protect the pack from human discovery,
Lindsey tries to content himself with life as a successful businessman. But when
someone starts kidnapping members of wealthy families, Lindsey meets tough cop Seth
Zakowsy—the hunky embodiment of everything Lindsey wants but can’t have.
Seth has never been attracted to flamboyant men. What would the
guys in the department think of Lindsey? But intrigue turns to lust when he discovers
Lindsey’s biting, snarling passion more than matches his dominant side. It might
mean a chance at love for a cop in black leather and a wolf in Gucci loafers.
