Would You Wait Six Years For A Kiss?

This post, just like "Why Time Travel Romances Wouldn’t Work Outside Romance Novels", first appeared on a blog now long gone, as part of the book launch tour for the vampire time travel romance novel, Bannockburn Binding.  -t. I have a love/hate relationship with television series.  I don’t watch live television because the advertisements and constant

Why Time Travel Romances Wouldn’t Work Outside Romance Novels

This post first appeared on a blog site long gone, in 2011, when I first released Bannockburn Binding.  I've reproduced it here because it's a good discussion about time travel (which I am so happy to be back into writing!!) -t.

Cover Reveal! The Next Kiss Across Time Book!

With preview panes and featured images, social media posts that suck up images, and more, it is impossible to do a full, formal "reveal" that shows off the cover for the very first time.  It's likely you've already glimpsed the cover in thumbnail, just getting to this post.

In the last few weeks I have been holding a discussion with my readers via the newsletter, about what they want to read.

I Got This Email About The Kiss Across Time Series

Actually, it wasn't just one email.  I've been getting a lot. They go, more or less: I love, love, love the Kiss Across Time series.  I just got to the end of Kiss Across Worlds, and read about there being no more for the foreseeable future.  Say it isn't so!
