Karyn Witmer Here on Dec. 12

Asimplegift Next  Tuesday, Karyn Witmer will be our guest blogger.  Karyn will talk about the world of writing, her latest contemporary titled A Simple Gift, and–if we whine a little–maybe she’ll even mention her historicals written under the name of Elizabeth Grayson.  If you’d like to prepare yourself for her visit, drop by her website at http://www.elizabethgrayson.com/

In the meantime, we’re cleaning house, dusting the bookshelf, and baking holiday goodies for Karyn’s visit.  It’ll be open house on Tuesday, so come on by and bring all your friends!

Time for Another Guest Interview

DissapearnightMark your calendars and tell your friends!  On Friday, November 10, Mary Jo Putney will interview Laura Resnick in connection with the mass market release of Laura’s urban fantasy, DISAPPEARING NIGHTLY.  The SF Chronicle describes Laura’s book thus: "Seasoned by a good measure of humor, this fantasy mystery is one of the best titles Luna has issued, and a genuine treat for readers of any genre."  If you’d like to know more about this book which Jennifer Crusie calls "A  paranormal screwball comedy adventure. Light, happy, fantastically funny," then please join us on November 10.

Teresa Medeiros Here Tuesday!

Vampirelovedme1Greetings from the Wenches.

On Tuesday, October 17th, our Honorary Wench will beTeresa Medeiros, author of 17 wonderful historical romances, the most recent of which involves vampires. Isn’t that suitable as we approach Halloween? She’ll be blogging on and off all day about writing, historicals, and her new book, THE VAMPIRE WHO LOVED ME.

Of course the Wenches will drop by to party with her, so come along and join in.

We hope you’re all enjoying our random thoughts about life, the universe, and corsets. Please let us know. Also, if you have a burning question for one or more Wenches, or a subject you’d love one of us to blog about, let us know by replying to this post.

Happy reading!
