Off We Go….

Wooden BridgeDear Readers and Fellow Authors (who are also readers, which makes that phrase kind of redundant!):

As you know by now, this is the last month for the Contemporary Romance Café. It’s been a fun time, but everyone has been pulled in so many directions. I wanted to take this time to thank all of you for giving me a place to post my thoughts, to talk about my writing journey, to spend time with like minds. I appreciate everyone who’s taken the time to comment on my posts or searched for me elsewhere just to chat. It means more than you know.

If you’d like to keep up with my (extremely slow) writing life or just my crazy-in-general life, you can find me at the following places:

Website:  (Self-explanatory…but there’s free read stuff here, too, under extras!)

Twitter:  (My home away from home!)

Tumblr:  (Mostly photography these days, but I also share writing stuff.)

Facebook:  (Not there too much, but I’ll try to be better…and I always answer comments!)

Hope to see you all in at least ONE of those places!

Happy reading!



PS…A huge thank you to Reese Ryan, who has held us all together this long. You are THE BEST.

Last call!

Today is a sad day. I’ve been posting as a Contemporary Romance Café regular since the start, and now the time has come for us to say, “See you later!” But it’s not a goodbye. All of our posts will remain, … Continue reading
