All About Vivi Andrews/Lizzie Shane

Vivi has been published in paranormal romance since 2009 and has over twenty paranormal novels and novellas currently available. In 2015 she launched her new contemporary romance pen name, Lizzie Shane, and has since added a dozen contemporary titles to her body of work. She has been honored to have three of her books final for the RITA(R) Award for Best Contemporary Romance.

The Writer’s High

You know that feeling, when you’re in the zone and the words are flowing and something a little bit magical happens, when it feels like the story takes over and you’re just the vessel it flows through?  Your awareness of your body fades away.  You forget to be hungry.  Or tired.  Or care about the […]

Welcome to 2018!

Happy New Year and welcome to 2018!!!  Eights have always been lucky for me, so I’m hoping this is a sign of an amazing year to come.  I can’t wait for the Olympics, I’m pumped about the Ruby Writing Festival (starting in less than two weeks!!!), and I’m busting with optimism for a GREAT year […]

The Illusion of Success

It’s the holiday season, which for many of us means gathering with family and friends… which, for many of us, means hearing that lovely question, “How’s the writing going?”  (Is anyone else out there groaning at the thought?)

Getting in the Spirit of the Season

Last Christmastime, I was the gym, jogging away on the elliptical (which is my happy place) and idly flipping through the audio for the various TV channels lined up in front of me when I saw the gorgeous Shemar Moore appear on screen to pimp his new (at the time) movie.  He talked about working […]

Are You a “Method” Writer?

Last year I banded together with five awesome contemporary romance authors for the Finding Chris Evans series – a group of linked novellas about one woman’s quest to meet the “Chris Evans” of her dreams and the unintended romantic consequences of her actions as she catapulted several other couples into love before finding her own […]

Get Enthralled by Tamara Hogan’s ENTHRALL ME!

I’ve been a Tamara Hogan fangirl since way back, so when I got the chance to take a sneak peek at the new Underbelly novel and host her release party here at the Ruby blog, I jumped at it faster than you can say sexy vampire lovin’.  ENTHRALL ME, the latest installment of the Underbelly […]
