In Lyncee Shillard’s romance adventure, Taking a Risk, Leigh books an extreme vacation to the Amazon. Kayaking down the Amazon is the easy part. Avoiding gun toting drug smugglers and keeping her feeling contained is the real test of endurance.
Lyncee, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Thanks for sharing two tips with us today, but first, please tell us about Taking A Risk.
Taking A Risk by Lyncee Shillard
Genre Romance Adventure
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Nic was handsome in a harsh rugged way with a body anyone else could only achieve through photoshop, and he lived in a jungle. Leigh smiled. Nothing practical or routine about him. She’d show Rayna and David. Not only was she going on an adventure, but she was going to screw Tarzan.
If there was one thing she excelled at, it was setting a goal, making a plan, and then following it making adjustment as she went until the objective was reached. Overachievement was her middle name. Granted, she’d never set the goal to have random sex with a Tarzan, but it didn’t matter, a goal was a goal.
Two Tips for Writing
#1 Know your villain and then create a hero/heroine that is equal. Many writers find creating the villain much more interesting than the hero/heroine. I mean there are very few rules when it comes to bad guy creation. That freedom is like discovering calorie sugar free doughnuts! Its hard to know when to stop.
#2 No one will write like you. Your story is yours and you must tell it the way it speaks to you. You will not have same writing routines as anyone else. Writing is a total individual thing. Be that individual!
Two Tips for Family
#1 Make the moments count. They don’t have to be long or a big production. Spend some time once a month putting together a ‘moment bag.’ What goes inside will vary depending on your child’s age and interest. Some ideas: – small coloring pages with a few crayons that you can color together – simple puzzle – a few Legos (challenge who can use all of theirs in a the time permitted) – a poem – then discuss – invent a dessert to make later (pick up the ingredients next time you go to the store) The idea is to talk, to share, to laugh, and make a moment.
#2 Create a family holiday. Celebrate your family! Select one day of the year and make ‘Your Name Family Day’. Eat your favorite foods, play your favorite games, watch movies or put together puzzles. Have everyone share one of their best memory of the last year. Decorate your house in traditional party style. Make a picture board of the last year. Do whatever feels right for your family – remember the purpose of this is celebrate your family!

I live in the cold Northern Michigan (the place of four seasons – they lie! It’s just different levels of winter) with my husband. Our children have begun their own adventures, and just as I got into the swing of empty nest, then my grandson came to live with us. Now I’m doing 7 again… they argue everything just case you forgot. And I now remember why I eat doughnuts. When I’m not hanging out with the 7-year-old, I’m writing, reading, crocheting, and making self-care products. I also enjoy taking pictures, I’m not claiming to have a talent it’s just something I like to do.
