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!

  1. I love this blog. I’ve learned so much, and I find each of you fascinating. Doesn’t matter if you’re talking about weather or waistcoats, I’m in.
    As for question, my biggest one (okay, related collection) for the Wenches is: How did you all go from zero to published? Did you futz about with it for years before buckling down to write a whole novel? Or did you decide one day, “I’m going to write a novel”, and voila! finished it 3-6-9 months later? What did you use to learn the craft – college classes? Books? Critique partner/group? Trial and error? Which is harder for you – character or plot? How many completed manuscripts did you have before you sold? Is getting published the first time different today than when you first published?
    For Teresa – how is writing an undead hero different from writing a mortal one? Does “happily ever after” take on a different tone?

  4. Hi wenches,
    A question for Teresa and/or for all of you:
    Many romance authors write (or are trying their hand at) fantasy/magic/paranormal romance. Why do you think this is? Is there a reason besides “they’re fun and ripping great stories”? I suppose my own thought on the subject is that it’s a “safe” (ie non-religious) way to explore spirituality and that sense of Connection to a power greater than ourselves. (Or is that just a nonsensical piece of wishful thinking on my part?)
    Looking forward to reading Teresa on the blog!
