All About sramsey

Sara grew up outside a tiny town in southern Iowa. She spent her childhood reading anything she could get her hands on - birthday cards, grocery lists, signs, the entire ANNE OF GREEN GABLES series, Laura Ingalls Wilder, Nancy Drew, and even her brother's Hardy Boys books. Around the age of 12, she stumbled across her first romance novel and was immediately hooked. She kept reading through high school, during breaks in her studies at Stanford University, and as she fell into an advertising position in Silicon Valley. She made the switch to writing romance in 2007. Sara is currently living the hip Regency writer life in San Francisco. Her latest book, THE MARQUESS WHO LOVED ME, was released in early 2013.

(Re)Launching a Book – Thoughts on Promo Post-Release

My latest release, The Marquess Who Loved Me, came out in mid-February with rather subdued fanfare. It was a Nook First pick for Valentine’s Day, but beyond that and a quick email to my newsletter mailing list, I did nothing noteworthy to promote it. I’ll spare you the sordid details, but suffice it to say that […]

Pantsing Your Series

I’m a pantser. I wish I weren’t – I’m so logical and organized in the rest of my life (unless you’re emailing me – all bets are off when it comes to responding to email). Theoretically, I should be just as logical and organized in my plotting. I dream of scenes arranged on index cards, […]

How Different is Too Different?

My latest book in the Muses of Mayfair series, The Marquess Who Loved Me, just came out last week (yay!). You can see below for the cover and description, if you’re so inclined. I’ll also give an ebook copy (Kindle or Nook) to a random commenter today – good luck! However, as excited as I […]

Digital Book World Discoverability and Marketing Recap

I attended the Digital Book World Discoverability and Marketing conference in NYC two weeks ago, and I wanted to share my key takeaways with all of you. The conference was geared toward publishing professionals – marketers, publicists, and all the people responsible for launching ebooks and getting them discovered by readers. There were very, very […]

Quitting Your Day Job – Two-Year Update

Two years ago, I left my day job to focus solely on writing (a decision I documented in this Ruby post from October 2010). As the second anniversary closes in, I thought I would share with you how this grand experiment worked out, what I learned, and where I plan to go next. Spoiler alert: […]


My second book in the Muses of Mayfair series, Scotsmen Prefer Blondes, released last month, but life is finally slowing down enough to take a breather and celebrate! I thought it would be fun to have Cerise d’Amour interview me – she’s the star of “Sh*t Romance Writers Say” on YouTube (and just may bear […]

Ruby Release: Superlovin’ by Vivi Andrews

I’m thrilled and delighted to host the release party for Superlovin’, the latest novella from Vivi Andrews. Vivi shared an advance copy of this book with me, and I ADORED it…and then kept trying to recommend it to people who were looking for things to read, only to be reminded that it still wasn’t out. […]

My Writing Process – Scotsmen Prefer Blondes

Today was supposed to be my release day for SCOTSMEN PREFER BLONDES. Yay! Except…it’s not. It’s awesome that a self-published author can get a book out quickly, but I’m still learning how to estimate publication dates so that I don’t overpromise and underdeliver (as I did in this case, sigh). I’m currently waiting to get […]
