Romance Writers Weekly


Hello and happy Tuesday. Thanks so much for taking the time to join us today. It means so much!

Here is this week’s challenge:

What cheers you up when you’re feeling down?

That’s simple: petting my dog.

Okay, now look at that face and tell me if you could be sad for long if she was around?

Josie is the definition of unconditional love. She approves of (almost) everything I do and she is happiest when she’s by my side. Yes, I spoil her. But, in a way, she spoils me, too. Writing is such lonely work most of the time, but she’s always here cheering me on. She makes me laugh and who couldn’t use a hug sometimes? And she’s great at those. She stands on her hind legs and puts her paws on my shoulder and just pulls me in.

Josie reminds me that I am worthy, that I am strong.

Experiencing the world through her is always fun. Every time we go for a walk, there’s an amazing new smell, a new person or an old friend and she gets very excited. We have a golf cart, which she loves riding in, and it makes me happy just to see her joy.

Yes, obviously, I love my dog and she loves me. And she always cheers me up when I need it!

Now let’s hop over to the wonderful and talented Brenda Margriet and read about what cheers her up. But first, she has awesome news….

Strictly by the Book is now available!

An adventurous, go-with-the-flow historian…a scrupulous, stick-to-the-rules scientist…an attraction so wrong it’s absolutely right.

Natalie Minton’s cheerful exterior hides desperation. She’s been out of work for months when her estranged sister appears on her doorstep pleading for help. An offer to write the biography of a local political legend couldn’t come at a better time.

Rafe Talbot rejected family tradition and chose medicine over politics. When he stumbles upon evidence of a hidden scandal, his only recourse is to work alongside—and stay one step ahead of—the vivacious scholar hired to chronicle his mother’s career.

Natalie’s exuberance strikes sparks off Rafe’s steely severity, luring them to ignore the secrets shadowing their pasts…until the glare of the present exposes intolerable truths.
