Hi Everyone,

My name is Dominic and my twin sister Domino and I blog for Breathless Press.  The book that I’m here to tell you about is an anthology of superhero stories called Secret Identities.  It’s easier for one of us to chat to you when it’s a collection so that we don’t play favorites with any one author!

You know, it’s a funny thing, but we’ve all wanted super powers at some point.  Personally I wanted to be able to fly and see through walls. Domino wanted to be able to teleport and eat anything without gaining weight.  Of course, the traditional “super powers” aren’t real (sadly), but I believe that every single author has super powers of their own.  After all, we get to create worlds or destroy them.  Mould people in our image or melt them down and recreate them.  We get to toy with their emotions and be puppet master to their lives. We are the Gods of our worlds and that is a very heady power to have indeed.

Profile_pictureJen: Please help me give a Sondrae Bennett a warm welcome to Romancing the Book! Sondrae, will you share a short bio with us?
Sondrae: I love romance. I love reading romance, living romance, but I especially love writing romance. There’s no greater feeling than watching my characters come alive in each other’s arms. Most of all, I love giving my characters the happily ever afters they deserve, with a little necessary drama first.

My love of reading developed at a young age. When other girls went to the mall to buy clothes, I headed straight for the bookstore. Reading a good book still gives me such a rush, transporting me time and again into a different world. One of my favorite things is picking up a new book and sinking into the story, immersing myself in the emotions between the characters. To put myself in the place of the heroine, and fall in love with the hero, cursing the day I reach the last page because it means the end of my adventure. At least until I pick up the next book and fall in love all over again. I hope someday to inspire readers the same way my favorite authors have inspired me.

Jen: Today we welcome Vicky Dreiling to Romancing the Book. Vicky, will you share a short bio with us?
Vicky: Triple RITA finalist Vicky Dreiling is a confirmed historical romance junkie and Anglophile. Frequent business trips to the UK allowed her to indulge her passion for all things Regency England. Bath, Stonehenge, and Spencer House are among her favorite places. She is, however, truly sorry for accidentally setting off a security alarm in Windsor Castle. That unfortunate incident led her British colleagues to nickname her “Trouble.” Vicky is a native Texan and holds degrees in English literature and marketing.

Who Has a Best Seller?

Wild Marauders MC is a best seller! Well, for at least a minute. I’ve never been one to follow stuff like that but I found myself there yesterday, surprised to see that Wild Marauders MC was ranked #66 on Amazon’s best sellers list for erotica romance! Then it quickly dropped to #71, and as I write this it’s #83. How cool is that?

Do I have the right to say I’m a bestselling author? It seems almost everyone is today. At least according to the covers of their books. What defines a bestselling author? According to Wikipedia “Best-selling” refers to the estimated number of copies sold of all fiction books written or co-written by an author. Another article I found when I was looking up the definition of an Amazon bestselling author was in the Warner Coaching Newsletter. Interesting article. According to them, Amazon’s list is based on sales from its own site, which we all know they update every hour. So authors can claim they are Amazon bestsellers, but for only a short time.

Jen: Please help me give a warm welcome to Anna Sullivan as she stops by Romancing the Book today. Anna, will you share a short bio with us?
Anna: Anna Sullivan was born and raised in southeastern Michigan, the seventh of nine children.  There was a lot of noise, frequent disorder and a fair bit of commotion in her early life.  Anna escaped by going through the looking glass, over the rainbow, or beyond the back of the wardrobe.

As years passed, she grew up, got married and had three children.  Needless to say, there was a lot of noise, frequent disorder and a fair bit of commotion.  When her darlings were in bed for the night, she escaped into words again, this time ones she wrote herself. After all, how difficult could it be to string together enough of them to fill an entire book?  Pretty difficult, as it turns out.  But she kept at it, and eventually sold her first book.

Her children are starting their own lives now.  Anna misses the noise, disorder and commotion, so it’s handy that she can recreate those times, and the happy endings that go along with them.  She hopes you’ll escape into one of her worlds and spend an enjoyable, and quiet, hour or two.

Lia Risso, the heroine of Susceptible to Him, is a fiery Italian woman who adores good food—and wine. She’s the type of girl who goes out for dinner on a first date and devours every bite of her pasta before licking the last smear of cannoli cream from her fork. Not one to pass up extra carbs, she’ll enjoy a few pieces of torn, crusty bread dipped in olive oil as well.

A girl after my own heart. A girl whose womanly figure is exactly what Ryan Walsh, our hero, enjoys.
