Kelsey Jordan HeadshotJen: Today we welcome Kelsey Jordan to Romancing the Book.  Kelsey, will you share a short bio with us?
Kelsey: Kelsey Jordan is the author of The Gardinian World novels. Though she has a preference for all things paranormal and romantic, Kelsey admits she just writes what her muse demands of her. It’s less painful that way. When she isn’t enjoying the momentary benefits of playing god to the many characters that live in her head, she can usually be found curled up with a book, killing something in a video game, or spending time with her family. At some point in the day she is probably drinking more than her recommended dose of coffee, but don’t tell her that. She doesn’t care about recommended servings.

As a Texas native and self-described Air Force brat, Kelsey now lives in Georgia with her husband and their tutu-wearing minion. To learn more, visit her at:

What if you could only touch your lover one night of the year? Halloween night is all you have when in a relationship with a ghost.

Drew Jessop wants a life without ghosts. He doesn’t want to see, hear, or talk to them. Ignoring them should be relatively simple. But Drew soon finds that Benji Richards, an eternally gorgeous ghost from the fifties, is not so easy to ignore.

Halloween night is approaching and both Drew and Benji know what it could mean for them. From sunset to sunrise, it is the one night of the year when a mortal can feel the touch of a ghost.

Regina Kyle2First off, thanks so much for welcoming me to Romancing the Book! It’s my first book, my first blog tour, and I couldn’t be more thrilled to be here.

It’s almost Halloween, and of course that means the annual costume debate. If you’ve got kids, it’s what do they want to be for Halloween. Then there’s the endless changing of minds even after they’ve decided – and you’ve bought (or even worse, spent hours making) the darned costume. If you’ve been invited to a costume party, then you’ve got to figure out what you – and your significant other, if you’ve got one – will be. Which can be almost – if not more – traumatic than dealing with the kiddos.

IMG_0368_editedJen: Today we are happy to welcome Dorothy Wiley to Romancing the Book.  Dorothy, will you share a short bio with us?
Dorothy: Called a “deft new writer of intelligent romantic fiction,” award-winning author Dorothy Wiley enjoys writing big, action-packed romantic adventures set in the American wilderness when it was still a frontier. In her exciting new American Wilderness Series Romances, Wiley breaches the walls of time, bringing readers to a young America, where romance and danger are as powerful as the wilderness. Readers describe her writing as fresh, unblinkingly gritty, and highly enjoyable with well portrayed characters. Like Wiley’s compelling heroes, who from the outset make it clear they will not fail despite the adversities they face, this author is likewise destined for success.​ During 2014, Wiley’s first novel, WILDERNESS TRAIL OF LOVE, was a CFRWA Touch of Magic Finalist and her second novel, NEW FRONTIER OF LOVE, was a Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award Quarter-Finalist.

Wiley grew up in southern California and found her own romantic hero in Austin, Texas, where she received a Bachelor of Journalism degree, with honors, from The University of Texas. After a distinguished 35-year corporate career in marketing and public relations, she is living her dream—writing historical romances—and residing in central Texas with her husband (the same wonderful guy) on their beautiful cattle ranch. Yes, dreams really can come true!

Torie James author picJen:  Today we welcome Torie James to Romancing the Book.  Torie, will you share a short bio with us?
Torie: Torie James has loved reading since she was old enough to hold a book in her lap. While her friends were out playing, she was generally curled up nearby falling down rabbit holes, catching second stars to the right, and stepping through wardrobes into mysterious lands and countless adventures. When those stories ended, she made up her own and kept going. This later on translated into a strong passion for writing that has helped her keep her feet on the ground while her head stayed firmly in the clouds. Lover of Dr. Pepper, all things chocolate, and Duran Duran, her dreams finally became a reality with the publication of Timeless Night and Timeless Desire, Books One and Two the award winning New Camelot Series.

IMG0353 (2)Jen: Today we are happy to welcome May Woodworth to Romancing the Book. May, will you share a short bio with us?
May: Nature girl and avid traveler, May weaves her love of the outdoors in all of her fiction tales. She began exploring the US and the Canadian Maritimes at the age of 16 (with her mother’s concerned blessing), leaving her Boston roots to travel cross country and camp throughout Nova Scotia, the northwest woods of Oregon, the southern beaches of California, and everything in between.

She then “settled down” to (as quickly as possible) attend college. Instead of choosing one passion, she pursued careers in social service, early childhood education, and lactation counseling. She also took time to raise an adventurous family, enjoying the wonders of New England with them through all the seasons.

Throughout life, she has volunteered for countless organizations pertaining to ecology, wildlife conservation, and domestic violence. Her books contain issues relating to women’s self-esteem, parenting struggles, personal growth, individual empowerment, and of course, Mother Nature.

From 2010-2013, she released 14 mature audience romances (under a pen name) for a major mature audience romance publisher

HEART OF THE HURRICANE is her first audio book series, released in weekly episodes through BigWorldNetwork.com from Sept 2013-Jan 2014.

HEART OF THE HURRICANE was released in paperback, eBook & audio book June, 2014.

Jen: Today we welcome Alisa Anderson to Romancing the Book. Alisa, will you share a short bio with us?
Alisa: Well…alisa did stuff and is still doing stuff. only now she has two boys crazy enuff to want her as their mommy. hey, at least she tried to warn them, so her job is done. she doesn’t like to capitalize, partially because she likes how lower case letters look visually, but mostly out of laziness. please don’t judge. it could be you. and she would say, hey. you’re alright, buddy. you’re ok in my book. now c’mere for a hug. the hug might be pushing it. air kiss? you are strangers, after all, with only a mutual love of poor grammar.

she lives for a world full of controllable anatomically correct, android men programmed to meet her specific feminine needs (wink, wink, nudge, nudge with a big waggle of the eyebrows). who look like the rock. and ian somerhalder. and idris elba. and that’s it she promises. variety. gotta have variety, right?

but alas…apparently that exists only in johanna lindsey’s genius mind. so until then, she enjoys her incredibly warped sense of humor. she reads tons of erotica and romantic, drippy goo that makes her heart go pitter patter. then she thought, hey. what, she said to herself. (softly, of course, so no one finds out she is indeed, 2 nuts short of a fruitcake) maybe you should write this stuff too. maybe someone will like it and maybe buy it. so she said, huh, you think? then she said, well…yeah, i wouldn’t have suggested it…(inserts sarcastic tone) and then she was like lose the attitude, ok? then she was all, would you just shut up and write, already? sheesh! and she did. :)
