I have been noticing for awhile something just seemed to be off about the last few Author Talks. A strange pattern was forming…you can see it here in the Roxanne St. Claire video as well as the Deidre Knight interview.
Then it hit me – Gena Showalter never left. It’s like we’re performing an author sandwich! No wonder Gena has begun to think of Author Talk as her show. Glad we could clear that up with Candace’s interview. Gena is mostly off stage where she belongs does her best work.
Candace should be a familiar face around Author Talk. She often does our camera work, and has even fixed the tripod. She was also featured in our Romance Novel Crime segments.
Of course we repay her efforts by making her do the camera work on her own video, and interviewing her in bed (we’re taking names hotel chain that we choose not to blame even though it was most likely our fault).
The Caruthers sisters are heiresses with privilege, wealth, beauty, and brains. But these party girls have something extra. As the Guardian Keys, possessors of an ancient family secret, they hold the fate of the world in their hands.
Gillian (great name by the way), the eldest, is a sensation in the art world— this world, that is. In her other world she’s the Assassin, a knockout who snuffs out dimension-jumpers who foul up her personal space. She never expected to join forces with one. But when a plague of murderous demons plunges the earth in darkness, she has no choice but to get a little help from a being who knows his stuff.

Gena and I recently attended the annual conference of Romance Writer’s of America in San Francisco. I’m not afraid to tell you that several people came up to me to chastise me for the lack of posts for the last few weeks. Greatly.
I quickly fell into a shame spiral, which Gena made worse, but to help me back out of it…here’s an actual post. With information, a pretty picture and an announcement. FIRST, we filmed 4 author interviews while at conference, and an Author Talk Extra.
We’ll be posting the first interview this Friday, and follow it up with an interview every Friday for the rest of August. This will be in sharp contrast to our every other Friday schedule of posting or the no posting at all, which brought on the angry words. And really, they were angry.
When we first began Author Talk, it was just two girls and a video camera. But we quickly realized we needed some extra help. Beth Wilson (who does our scheduling, but mainly works for Gena) was the first to join us. Next was Candace Havens. As seasoned radio personality this makes her perfect for camera work. She’s also an amazing author, and Charmed & Ready comes out TODAY!
Now here’s the part with the pretty picture.
A witch’s work is never done!
Bronwyn’s finally found someone to love—and almost gotten him killed. But before she can nurse him—maybe just a little bit naughtily—back to health, she’s got to guard a rock star from some creepy warlocks.
