Romance writers do what they love, and they get paid for it. They hone their craft, like any other writer. They value their work, and they speak with an honest voice, telling the stories that they want to tell. I can’t imagine anything more feminist.

Writing Romance Fiction Is A Feminist Act by Danielle Summers. (via therumpus)

I know a lot of romance writers, and they are amazing, hard-working people who are serious about their craft.  They are also serious about having fun!  Before you turn your nose up at romance writers and romance writing, get to know some of the people who work in this demanding field.  It covers nearly every other genre there is—mystery, horror, western, science fiction, historical (and just about every historical period), paranormal (and all of those subgenres), thriller, fantasy (all kinds).  Romance has come a long way from what my mother’s generation read!

Hey, Rebellion!

I need some help! As soon as we have a kickass tagline for MISS MAYHEM, I can show you the REALLY FREAKING AMAZING cover! But guess what?WE DO NOT HAVE A KICKASS TAGLINE FOR MISS MAYHEM. Do YOU have one? Can I have it? Please feel free to inbox me any ideas, or to reply to this post. If we pick your tagline, my editor has a bunch of sweeeet Penguin Titles she’s gonna give to you, and I know you want those. For inspiration, here’s the cover copy!

I have had a question burning in my veins ever since I finished Spellbound, perhaps the most important question I've ever asked: Do Sophie and Archer ever get to make out in a castle?

Hahaha, oh, I definitely think so. Possibly while hunting something dangerous at a crumbling castle, and Archer is all, “*eyebrow waggle*” and Sophie is all, “….HERE? NOW? ARE YOU KIDDING ME WITH THIS?”

Hi there, just to let you know we put Rebel Belle on our summer reading list in our culture tag, thank you for a great read! - The Hashtag Team. xx

Awesome, thank you so much! :)

People will say he was too young; he did not have time to finish. But it is not How long, it is not How much; it is, simply What. When the door shut for him, he had already written on this side of it that which every artist who also carries through life with him that one same foreknowledge and hatred of death, is hoping to do: I was here. He was doing that, and perhaps in that bright second he even knew he had succeeded. What more could he want?

How many books are you planning to write in the Rebel Belle series?

There are 3! And after that, probably no more series from me for awhile. :) I have two middle grade novels that are both standalones coming out in the next few years, and then a couple of YA ideas I’m kicking around. We shall see!
