Day on the Links: Nan in the News

Since the release of my new contemporary hockey romance, Power Play, I've been getting a ton of hits, reviews (mostly good) and exposure.  So I wanted to share some work I've been putting out there.

I recently answered a Q&A about sexy music to listen to know: on my publisher, Crimson Romance's, website.

I also completed a blog post for Crimson Romance about--what else?--writing the athlete romantic hero.

Lastly, I've been working on my author profile on Goodreads, which I'm finding is a great (and nerve wracking) way to get feedback on your published works.

Happy reading and don't forget to check out my new romance about hockey and hot athletes, Power Play, available on Amazon.

Erotic Romance: Calls for Submission - 2013 Edition

So you want to write erotic romance?  2013 may be your year to finish that sexy manuscript and snag a publisher for it.

As for myself, I had the idea of hitting this new year running but so far I've only been jogging a little.  Certainly not enough to work up a sweat.  I should get down to it.  And so should you!  Come on...we'll do it together.

In the meantime, find some motivation from the erotic romance publishers out there who are eagerly awaiting your masterpieces.  Check them out.

Total-E-Bound: This is my erotic romance publisher and they are lovely to work with.  Plus, they are looking for stories for some fantastic themed anthologies coming up.  How about an all male story about men in uniform?  (Deadline July 1, 2013). Or a cowboy menage story? (Deadline November 1, 2013). That's definitely my kinda thing.

This publisher also has a host of seasonal holiday themed calls for submissions that are tickling my fancy.  Valentine's Day 2014 is all about cougars--and the submission deadline is August 2013, which gives us all time to work on that manuscript to our heart's content.  And, last but not least, pirates!  We have a whole year to come up with a M/F "Jolly Rogered" story.

Ellora's Cave is also looking for stories about big beautiful women (BBW) and M/M erotic romance.

Happy New Year and happy writing!

Happy New Year!

Another year over...and a new one just begun - John Lennon

Yes, it is 2013, already.  Yikes!  To show you how unprepared I was for the new year, I spent time on the first morning of the year printing a calendar.  Even though, according to my family, I ought to have known the year was coming.  Let's just say I hadn't completely written off the idea of a Mayan apocalypse.

But, having survived to see a new year, I am left with the task of deciding on my new year's writing resolutions.  Again.

See, last year, I was ambitious.  Some may say, too ambitions.  I set out a series of writing resolutions and I charted my progress throughout the beginning of 2012.

Okay, so I did one progress report on my resolutions last year...and that was in January.  Anecdoctal evidence suggests that I am in the majority.  Most people do seem to forget about their new year's resolutions very early on.

So why I am making new resolutions?  Because I am ambitious.  I want to be the best writer I can be and I want to try to show the world some of my writing.  But more than that, I know myself, and I feel better about me when I write and send out submissions.  If you write, you probably feel the exact same way.

So what are my resolutions for 2013?  Write more.  Blog more.  Send out more submissions.  That's all.

Good luck to you and me!
