Toronto Romance Writers

Pay It Forward Friday is my way of thanking authors who have done something that has helped me either personally or professionally in some way in the past years. Some I’ve only met online, some at conferences, and some have become long-term friends. Others may not even know what they did, or […]

Pay It Forward Friday – Molly O’Keefe

If you’re in the Oshawa / Durham Region on February 12th and write romances, or just want to learn more about what is behind writing a romance, drop in at the Northview Public Library (it’s the one at the corner of Beatrice and Ritson, across from the Five Points Mall.) […]

Ever wanted to write a romance?

I’ve been writing almost as soon as I learned how to print. When I finally got serious about my writing, and decided to see if I could actually be published an editor I met at a local writers’ group encouraged me to join the Toronto Romance Writers. She even forwarded […]

The best writing advice I’ve ever had

Meet Gina Gordon Your significant other will be home any minute. Dinner is made, the children have been shipped off to a safe place, the table is set, the music is playing and the lights are dim. There’s only one thing missing….where’s the sexy? I’ve come to the conclusion that […]

Gina Gordon: What makes you feel sexy?

Meet Gwen Campbell I am a criminal. I admit this without apology. Despite society’s pressures to be good, I wallow in the pursuit of lawlessness with delicious glee. I walk my dog off leash in public parks. There. I’ve said it. It’s out in the open now, dear reader, and […]

Gwen Campbell: Confessions of a Suburban Felon

Hey everyone! Happy Thursday! I’d like to say a big thank you to Leah for having me do a guest spot on her blog! I’ve been crazy busy these past few weeks as my second book, His Darkest Embrace hits the shelves on Tuesday, October 26th! I’m excited, scared, excited […]

Embracing Juliana Stone

Today was the giant celebration of books in Toronto today. That’s right a book festival. Every reader and author’s dream block party. It’s called Word on the Street and there are books of every type — children’s, non-fiction, fiction both literary and genre. Authors of all types are there, mingling […]

Word on the Street 2010

How the heck did it get to be mid-September–and FALL–already? If you’re in southern Ontario next Sunday (September 26th), I’m going to be at Toronto’s annual Word on the Street celebration at Queen’s Park. It’s a chance to mingle with publishers, authors and illustrators of all types of books–non-fiction, children’s […]

Looking Ahead

Yikes, it’s Monday January 11th already and I’ve not posted since Friday. Sorry sorry sorry! All I can plead is that I’m up to my ears in edits and rewrites of two different stories while running into Toronto on Saturday along with the usual family routines. On the writing front, […]

What do you mean it’s Monday?

Monday. AND the last day of November. Where the heck has the past week gone, let alone the month?  Gizmo Guy has been home for the past week with H1N1, the job Guitar Hero expected to get after he finishes his courses turned out to be something other than what […]

Another month gone?

Today’s guest blogger is a fellow member of the Toronto Romance Writers — so that calendar she’s talking about below? Yup, it’s available in Canada. Which means I’m gonna get me one fer sure.  And it’s in the name of charity too, ladies. But Nika? How could you not email […]

Nika Dixon’s Not Taking Any Chances

Remember that post from the other day about being busier than a one-armed paperhanger? Life hasn’t let up.  I went to yesterday’s Toronto Romance Writers’ monthly meeting with Alexia Reid and Kendal Ashby who also writes as Kendal Corbitt. (That made three people with seven names all crammed into one […]

Contest season starts!
