Let’s Help Nora

Gena and I like to point out as often as possible that we think it’s no coincidence (REALLY, IT’S US) that after interviewing with Author Talk, PC Cast, Kresely Cole, Sharon Sala and Rachel Vincent all hit the New York Times Bestseller list.

Let’s see if we can help our new friend, Nora Roberts, reach that same achievement (that’s just so elusive).  We visited with her last summer, but really we can’t roll this footage enough we just want to help her out.

Vision in WhiteWedding photographer Mackensie “Mac” Elliot is most at home behind the camera, but her focus is shattered moments before an important wedding rehearsal when she bumps into the bride-to-be’s brother…an encounter that has them both seeing stars.

A stable, safe English teacher, Carter Maguire is definitely not Mac’s type. But a casual fling might be just what she needs to take her mind off bridezillas. Of course, casual flings can turn into something more when you least expect it. And Mac will have to turn to her three best friends—and business partners—to see her way to her own happy ending.

Behind The Scenes With Merline Lovelace

As a mentor to the both of us, Merline had EXACTING standards.  I’m not really sure what that means, but Gena and I share them!

When not correcting me on the proper way to perform a sit-up, Merline is a USA Today Bestselling Author.  Her new book, The Hello Girl, hits bookstands April.

the-hello-girlAll that’s standing in the way of the Dunbars’ divorce is Brian Dunbar’s unwillingness to sign the papers. And though his wife, Lieutenant Colonel Anne Dunbar, loves him as madly as she did on their wedding day eleven years ago, their differences—intensified by the pressures of career and family—are irreconcilable. Or so she thinks.

When a long-lost file lands on Anne’s desk, she learns some unexpected lessons about love and trust from the remarkable story of a World War I “Hello Girl” telephone operator. Marie Reynaud fought valiantly for love—a love immortalized in diary entries that transcended war and time. A love inspiring enough to save Anne’s marriage?
