Emily Bryan's Blog – January 2009 Archive (26)

FALLEN by Cindy Holby ~ A Recommended Read


He was the product of illegitimacy, son of a noble house with no claim to its title or riches. For John Murray, the only hope of a decent life was his career as a British Officer.


Had she lost her heart when he rescued her from ruffians, or when she first looked into that face like a golden angel's? No… Continue

Pantser, Plotter. Layerer, or Puzzler?

Minds Alive on the Shelves

Today, I'm visiting the one and only non-romance blog on my tour. It's Minds Alive On the Shelves and when I was setting up the tour, I was so taken with the blog's title, I had to contact the owner, Lisa.

I've never heard a better description of what a book is--"a mind alive on the shelf."… Continue

Fashion~A Woman's Weapon of Choice

Today I'll be at TheRomance Studio talking about Daisy Drake's use of fashion to gently deceive Lucian Beaumont, our hero in VEXING THE VISCOUNT, into letting her help him find the Roman treasure he seeks. And you've guessed it! It's all… Continue

Hey, It's Monday. A little confusion is Required!

Sometimes, as the old Scottish saying goes, the best laid plans 'oftimes gang awry.' I was supposed to be at WildOnBooks today. I even swapped emails with them last night, but can't seem to raise anyone today. Technical difficulties, I guess. I so understand that, being the anti-techno queen, myself. If I hear from them,… Continue

Split Decision

Like a lot of authors, I write under two pen names, Emily Bryan and Diana Groe. My Emily tales are light-hearted and (blush) sexier. The tone of my Diana Groe stories is much darker. If I can borrow an opera analogy, my Diana Groe books are grand opera. Emily Bryan is Gilbert and Sullivan with sex!… Continue

This is a timely topic for writers and readers alike. The economy is forcing print publishers to rethink their business model.… Continue

Characters We Love to Hate!

I'm talking about villains. Whether brutally evil or sly and calculating, they stand between our hero or heroine and their heart's desire. There'd be no story without them.
