My Muse presented me with this truly tempting scene I just had to follow. You can read it on my website https://patriciarice.com/books/sapphire-nights/ C’mon, tell me you can resist finding out what happens after a scene like that? Continue reading

I confess, I never thought of your heroines as beautiful so much as interesting, which is far more the type of person I want to read about. Maybe readers get the idea from the covers? That hair is soooo gorgeous! Since I write series, I tend to do a little more character description just so I can signal the reader who is stepping up to the plate. The plump one with the auburn hair, the blond haystack... In third person, it adds a little personality, but as everyone has said above, beauty has its downsides and needs to be part of the story. thanks for the interesting post!

I have a scene in one of my magical Malcolm books where the h/h have a giggling good time and more after discovering their host's library of erotica. ;) And when they weren't reading, they had lots of paintings and statues to study! Great topic for a wintry day...

Canada makes a great detour! I don't wish long distance travel on anyone-it can be arduous.

starting close to home is always an excellent way to get started. Each trip is an adventure in itself, and they'll feel more comfortable as they venture further!

what wonderful memories, thank you for sharing! They have such adorable birds, but I don't mind missing the plane flying into the glacier bit. ;) we were on a tall ship that went under a bridge and we could have sworn the mast would rip off--perspective is everything.

We're spending all our retirement money traveling while we're still healthy, so we'll have the photos to look back on when we're not! I really wish we could easily post photos in our books as well. Maybe that time will come!

Pat here: Those of you who follow the wenches regularly know that I’m a notorious sun lover. Even though I now live in Southern California, the land of sun, I still love traveling to the southern hemisphere and enjoying the long days of summer while the US is experiencing the short days of winter. Since our son, the ultimate sun-lover, lives in the Philippines, we meet every other year in a warm place none of us have explored. This year, it was New Zealand. The written history of New Zealand isn’t very long. The country was the last habitable place... Continue reading

I wonder if we could all post smiles as our images on social media? It's so hard to get the pleasure across in these little tidbits and a smiley face. It sounds like you have lots of reason to smile!

I think everyone has given up finding books that we haven't read yet. ;) I wish I had more time the way I used to do to snuggle down in front of the fire and just read--instead of editing, writing blurbs, picking cover images...

Janice, I pretty much do the same because I have no memory. But I do like creating a cast of stable characters! Patricia Rice http://patriciarice.com
