thank you for trying Mystic Isle! As you can tell from my pics, an island filled with tropical plants and sunshine is just my speed. Hope it provided a little indoor sunshine for you!

And I just called us motley before reading this. I'm trying to imagine how many Irish settled in St Thomas...

We are a motley lot, and I love it! I want to see the day we're all just from Planet Earth!

San Diego! I need to get more news from there. I hadn't heard a word about it, dang.

but it's wonderful to know just what highjinks your ancestors were up to! Of course, the Vikings had a lot to answer for.

LOL, Nicola, that pretty much sums up the warrior gene.

Did you march in the parade, proudly waving the green? I really wanted to attend the one in Savannah, where at least there would be a chance of warmth when the parade starts. Maybe one day... A Happy Paddy's Day to ya, then!

LOL on the electron clickings. Must remember that. Ugh on the snow, though. I am sooooo glad to be out of that. My Irish heart may cling to green, but not to the snow. I trust the baklava isn't green!

Since this is St Patrick’s Day, I claim it for my own, even if St Pat was actually English. Continue reading

Amazing trip! I am in serious envy. Write more, we'll listen!

Thank you! I think indie publishing will allow us to write almost anything we like. Whether or not our preferences have a large audience is another question entirely! Patricia Rice http://patriciarice.com

thank you for the recommendation! Creative people throughout history have been stymied by the need to be true to themselves and still make a living. It's a tough road to walk. By going with a small press, it takes longer for my books to show up in libraries. Many of them can only buy the ebook versions these days, and that takes even longer for some reason. Hope you can find them eventually!

A lady after my own heart! Odd, I can handle the sex but not the violence--skip right over it. And I used to read those fat sagas but you're right, who has time? I'd forget where the story was so often, I'd have to give up.

of course, as ever, the trick will be finding them! There are probably some new ones over at Regency Reads but that's my only source right now.

sweet romances are making a comeback! I know several people who will be delighted to know there's an audience. Adding Michelle to my TBR. I love witty Regencies.

I do love our wenchly readers! We are of a similar mindset. I adore Sharon Shinn. Historical fiction will always be my true love, but I wear down after a while and need fresh food for thought. And Sonya is right, emotion will keep me reading as much as the romance. Thank you for feeding my curiosity!

I am an avid consumer of romance, fantasy, and mystery in all their multitudinous subgenres, so pardon me if I digress from our usual historical conversation—unless one considers the Bush administration historical Continue reading

Welcome commonweeder, and may I say as a fan of puns, I love your nom de plume. Thank you for finding us and for the kind words. We love librarians here. Without you, we would not be authors. And I know about the guilty pleasure of too many books. I just gave up a library, and now I'm desperately trying to keep my acquisitions to ebooks. The library helps me with those books only in print!

Yes, Donna, see above. I was there. I will not willingly go here again. I think all readers intimately familiar with a subject will have problems with fiction dealing on that subject. Writers are human and they can't just write about the one topic they know or people would start yawning, especially in romance. So we have to do the best we can when it comes to research. But not doing any, especially on a familiar topic like horses, will kill an audience quickly!

We lived nearly a week without any utilities, including water since we were on a well. It was possible to get by, but not very pleasant! You were lucky to at least have the option of a tub!

LOL, Kathy! That comes under my preference not to make me or my heroines miserable. But that is at least a safe and intriguing experience. And a full moon is kind of fun!

I'm so with you, Sonya. I want to see that rug wrestling too. And you're absolutely right about those minor details that can really make a scene. Most of us have medical experts we consult, like Susan's Dr. Josh who actually enjoys medical history. And in a contemporary, there's really no excuse for not getting the medical right.
