P
lease Note:
We don't do reviews or interviews. just virtual parties to promote your book!

As many of you may know, our beloved sister hostess SHARON DONOVAN, tragically passed away on 11th April 2012. We who knew her, loved her, and were inspired by her courage and determination to face head on whatever life threw at her. When she could no longer see to paint she turned to writing and showed her amazing talent in the Inspirational Romance and Romantic Suspense genres, and her story 'Charade Of Hearts' was awarded the coveted Predators and Editors Award in January 2011.

This Blog was a source of great delight to her, she was one of the founder hostesses and she contributed to the fun and silliness in her own original way, and was kind enough to let her unique creation, the hunky butler 'Oliver' join us for our Friday romp and prepare 'virtual breakfast' for the guests on the following morning. It's beyond hard to have to go on without her, but we know that she would have been the first to insist that 'the show must go on.' She is, and will always be with us in spirit.
Sharon, dear friend, we will never forget you.
The Author Roast and Toast is part of the legacy you left us. Let's raise a Toast to you as well as all our guests.

THE HOSTESSES' 'DROP IN' DAY

 Hi everyone, sorry there's no Roast today.  But the hostesses may pop in and out, if their busy lifestyles and writing commitments permit, to tell you a little bit about themselves that you might not know, and answer any questions.

And of course there's virtual food - I' ve brought some chicken fingers and dip, and various chocolate cakes and puddings and chocolate Martini (can you tell I have a sweet tooth)

 I love Science Fiction and Fantasy romance and am an avid reader of both as well as a writer (one little known fact about me - I  hate the term Sci-Fi. not sure why, it's one of my little quirks.  Call my stories Space Opera and I'm fine but 'Sci-Fi' makes me cringe.)  Apart from that I'm fairly laid back I think.
I have two Science Fiction Romance novels published with The Wild Rose Press 'Starquest' and the follow up, 'Children Of The Mist' and am about to submit the third in the series.  I also have a romantic fantasy set in 5th century Wales, entitled 'Dancing With Fate'.

  I love all animals (and my sister hostesses.)  I have two horses, a Paint/Quarterhorse mare with attitude, called 'Flying T'pau' and a black Welsh Cob gelding affectionately known as 'Harri' although his proper name is 'Pentrepiod Sovereign'.  Nearly two months ago I had to say goodbye to my beloved rescue Jack Russell, Bouncer, but we have now adopted a black Lhasa Apso we have named Pipkin.  Another rescue, he has some issues with his toys,being very possessive of them, but we're hoping we can work through these, because in all other ways he is a little sweetheart.

OK, that's enough about me.  Please ask any questions you wish and I'll do my best to answer them.  And I hope my hostess sisters will join me soon - otherwise I'll have to eat all this virtual food myself!

  1. Hi Lyn and the rest of our lovely hostesses and guest. I write paranormal and historical romance, mostly for the Wild Rose Press, although, I do have one self-published western historical. My last published book was Embrace the Darkness, a paranormal vampire romance and sequel to Out of the Darkness. ETD came out in June of 2013. My goal is to publish one book a year, but I'm not sure I'm going to get one out in 2014. However, I just learned this week that the Wild Rose Press will be publishing Slightly Noble, a historical set in Victorian era England. Slightly Noble is a companion book to Slightly Tarnished, a historical romance that was released in 2011. So, keep an eye out for me on the Roast as I hope my sisters will celebrate the release of Slightly Noble whether that date is late this year or in early 2015. SN is Jack's story and Jack is the American privateer readers met in Slightly Tarnished. But, is Jack really an American? Tune in to find out. Or, just ask me a question here.

  2. Excellent Lilly! Be sure I know the date, because I loved Slightly Tarnished. Normally I'm a sci-fi/paranormal reader, but lately it's been a wild ride and just keeps getting better as I find new authors and genres. I'm havin' a great time!
