Ruby Tuesday: Jacie Floyd

We took a little summer break from Ruby Tuesdays, but now we’re back!  And it’s time to get to know one of our Rubies just a little better.  Today we welcome one of our contemporary scribes.  You may know her as Jacqueline Floyd, but soon readers will be getting to know her as Jacie Floyd. […]

Awesome #RWA14 SWAG!!

Frequent Ruby Readers may remember that I’m one of those annoying people who doesn’t seem to be influenced by most promo and marketing approaches, and alas, swag is no exception. I know, I’m horrible. But that doesn’t mean there wasn’t some awesome swag on hand at the Romance Writers of America’s National Conference recently held […]

Ruby Release: The Sweetest September by Liz Talley

Welcome, friends, to the party I’m throwing for myself. Presumptuous of me, huh? But, oh well, today is a great day to celebrate, Friday and all that, so I figured why not throw a release party and invite all of you? The Sweetest September is my 13th book, and I’m banking on it being lucky ’cause […]

This Writer’s Life: Balance

I may have blogged about balance before. It’s one of my favorite topics because I believe feeling balanced is one of the keys to happiness. To be honest, I’m not sure I qualify to lecture anyone in balance, as each case is as unique as each individual, but as a mother of three, wife, the family secretary, […]

Updated Golden Heart & RITA Rules!

Every year prior to conference the RWA National Board meets and makes changes to the contests.  This is the ONLY time such changes can be made because it is the only board meeting when the contest is not actively in session.  The new rules were released following the meeting and I’m sure will soon be […]

Welcome Back!!

We know most of you are in a state of combined jet-lag and emotional exhaustion and are probably soaking your feet to recover from your gorgeous-but-painful conference footwear, but we’re hoping you can take a moment to share just ONE detail that […]

Follow the Rubies at RWA National

Many of the ruby sisters will be attending the Romance Writers of America’s national conference in San Antonio this week. And we thought, instead of daily blogs about the event, it might be way more fun to post the live Twitter feed from the authors who are attending.  So here it is.  This feed will […]

Safe Travels!!

To all our wonderful friends traveling to San Antonio for the Romance Writers of America National Conference, we wish you open roads, fair skies, friendly faces everywhere, tons of inspiration, and a terrific boost to your writing career!  (An occasional cocktail with an umbrella in it wouldn’t hurt either.)

What keeps YOU sane in this crazy world of writing?

Have we talked about this here before? Probably. My mind stays so scattered these days that I have no idea, but I was just emailing the rubies last night about how I’ve had to take a bit of a step back from writing to kind of reset myself, and it got me to wondering what […]
