Hi, Tari! I haven't read Laura Drake, but she's scheduled to speak at my local RWA chapter on Saturday. Too bad you're in CA because I"m in FL. It might be a wee bit too far for you to travel to see her.

Congrats on publishing your first novella! And welcome aboard.

I'm not sure what level to join at though. Originally you could call yourself a writer if you decided you were a writer, but I read the terms and conditions again recently and got the impression that they've changed a bit.

The British version of RWA is even more restrictive, in that you have to have a publishing contract with a proper publisher before they'll let you in, which means us Indies have no chance, unless we get in the New Writer award scheme.

Think not. Do.

If you do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always got.

I get a great deal from my local Creative Writing Group. I'm going to join RWA soon, but in Wales we don't have a local chapter - more like one for the whole UK. But whichever it is, I need close support.

As long as you find it on the morning of the second Saturday. :)

Time is always going to be an issue. The real question is is this something that interests you. If it is, you'll find the time. If you have other priorities, that's okay, too.

Hi everybody.

What name do you prefer to be called? Call me Doreen, I don't have an alias or nom de plume, it makes everything too complicated.

Where do you live? The empty bit in the middle of Wales. Just on the edge of Snowdonia National Park

What is your birthday? (month & day only) July 17

Who are your favorite author(s)? Mary Balogh, Courtney Milan, Ella Quinn, and about a million others.

2 random fun facts about you?

1. I've self-published a little book of flash fiction (not romance) and am nearly ready to put out another one (also not romance) while I polish up all the manuscripts I have hanging around. And next month being NaNoWriMo I'm going to end up with another one.

2. We've had a holiday house in France for 16 years and have just gathered up enough money to have it renovated.

Look forward to seeing you all around.

Think not. Do.

If you do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always got.

Welcome aboard! And Yay romance readers!

Oh, yeah, you've definitely run the gamut of paranormal romance authors. I recently started reading Sherrilyn Kenyon's Chronicles of Nick - YA Dark Hunter books. The fun thing is I got my boys to read them, too. :)

Hello everyone! I'm Victoria, and I'm a body positivity enthusiast who LOVES to read. Over the past few years, my open time to sit with a book has shrunk dramatically, so I've found ways to work around it, mostly with audio books, which I can listen to while doing errands or exercising. My favorites are paranormal romances, or anything from Molly Harper, Kresley Cole, Darynda Jones, or Jeanine Frost. I hope to meet some great people here!

Hello,
I'm Tammy and I've come back to Sparkpeople.com to get my health back on track. It's been almost four years since I used the site and it shows. I've gone through many changes and challenges: divorce, remarriage, published a dozen books under four pen names, continued to work full time as a veterinarian (22 years running now), and relocated to Washington after my husband retired from the Coast Guard.

Through it all I forgot about me. I was diagnosed with Type II diabetes but don't have to take insulin or other medication for it at this time. I'm on a diuretic for my blood pressure too. Working 40 to 60 hours a week as a veterinarian and squeezing in writing, editing, and reading has left me with very little time to take care of me. I don't like the way I feel like this so I finally promised myself to take back the control.

Thank you for being here!

Tammy
Lynnwood, WA

New goals, new life, new career and I am finally happy!

Hi, Laurie from Massachusetts! That's where I was born, but I've been in Florida for too many years go count. :) Great group of authors you have there! If you don't mind a recommendation, check out Lena Diaz's Nursery Rhyme books. I LOVE them. (And full disclosure - I know her, but don't let that stop you. :)

Hurray on the 20 lbs!

Hi, I'm Laurie from Massachusetts. I love reading so much that I even work out to audiobooks instead of music. My favorite series right now is Sherrilyn Kenyon's League. I was lucky enough to meet her at a book launch last summer. Hoping to meet her again later this month. I also enjoy Christine Feehan, Kaylea Cross, Pamela Clare, Maya Banks and Monette Michaels. I tend to lean toward Romances with a good deal of suspense added in.

I've been back on track on Sparkpeople for just over 2 months, and just hit 20 pounds lost! I'm also a Disney addict. I try to go at least twice a year.

Laurie

As the legend goes, when the Phoenix resurrects from the flames, she is even more beautiful than before.

Hi there, some if not all of my romance have a little mystery or intrigue, I love how mystery not only is for solving murders, but also helps discover who a lover is or might be, am currently working on a book on how to spice up your marriage and as will all of my non fiction pieces there is a story with it.

Hi there !!! my names Debi , Glad to see this team redoing things, I too am a romantic at heart soul and body, I found this team a while back in hopes to meet others who like me were writing and talking about romance. Every genre I write has a touch of romance in it, because if we don't have romance the world and our lives can be extremely boring.... To feel a lovers embrace, to feel the touch of his (or her) kiss to know you are truly desired and wanted is the greatest feeling.

Hi everyone!

I was past overjoyed to find a Spark group for romance readers and writers! I write contemporary romance and thrillers, and I read just about any good book I can download to my Kindle in either genre!

To answer the introduction questions:

What name do you prefer to be called? Yvonne (writing as Yvonne Kohano)

Where do you live? East of Sacramento, CA in the foothills, in a town I've used as a model for my Flynn's Crossing series

What is your birthday? (month & day only) April 3 - and SO MUCH an Aries!

Who are your favorite author(s)? Robyn Carr saved my sanity at a tough time in my life, and I love Bella Andre, both her boundless energy and what she's given to indie authors in our genre - and the additional list is lllooonnnnnngggggggg...

2 random fun facts about you? I used to raise and train llamas, and I'm a certified Master Gardener.

Thanks so much, Patricia, for grabbing the reigns and being willing to moderate this group! I look forward to getting to know you all and getting healthier together!

Hugs - Yvonne

An easy project could be sewing a rag rug. All you do is cut clothes into strips, braid them and then sew them into a spiral, no special stitches needed. And you finish with something useful! Plus it's mindless enough so you can think while you're cutting or braiding or sewing.

LOL I usually knit something small and really easy like a sock in stockinette stitch or something in garter stitch. I'll knit while I'm thinking what to write next, then when I figure it out, I'll drop the knitting into my lap and type until I get stuck. Then I'll pick up my knitting again. It helps to keep me from snacking too much, but my biggest problem is that I can still chew on something while I type so often I shove food in my mouth while I'm writing, which is bad for my weight loss. :( I'm trying to stop my snacking habit and just stick to my knitting.

There's actually psychological studies done on this--we all learn, recall, and create using either visual, auditory, or kinesthetic senses. I am a visual learner, I recall aurally, and I create kinesthetically--while touching something in my hands, like knitting. I'm not sure why typing doesn't count, but oh well. I tend to write better when my sense of touch is engaged, which also might be why I write well when snacking. :P
