Hi, all. If anyone would like to have a free galley copy of my July release (Jungle Fire), you can shoot me your address via my Dana Mentink Facebook page and I'll have Moody send one along in exchange for a review (good, bad or otherwise!).  Here's a link to a free sample of the book if you want to check it out first. :)




Name calling, author style!

Stranger than Fiction

As a romance writer, I have the hardest time with male names. The hero has got to have a strong sounding monniker but not so strong that he sounds like a cartoon character. Dirk Buffington? Sly Steely? Er, not so much. Neither can one err on the side of a name that doesn’t quite strike the macho tone. Horace Finkbottom is not going to carry a romance on his shoulders. Neither will Walter Higginbottom…

GREAT to see you here. I hope we all can have fun here. I think ths could be a great way to share ideas and have book clubs learn from one another. I also think that authors can learn from each other about the fun they have had with book clubs and/or invite book clubs that they've spoken with either in person or on the phone.

We'll see where the Lord leads but I hope we can learn, have fun and brainstorm some really special book club meetings for both Authors and book clubs!!
