1.       Failure to follow the instructions in my Review Policy: Now review requests do not make me growl. However, what makes me growl is when the requester does not follow the instructions as laid out in my review policy. Yes, I am an avid reader, but that does not mean I read everything that comes my way. That is why I specifically state what I will and will not read.  Therefore, when I open an email with the subject heading review request, I do not expect to see a request for self-help, religious and biographical materials.  Where in my review policy does it…

When I tell people that I write superhero-themed romance, many will respond, “Oh, you must write YA (Young Adult) books.” “No,” I reply. “I write superhero stories with adult characters in adult situations that have suspense, action, romance, and … have you seen the recent Marvel and DC films?”
About half of them say that they haven’t watched those movies and have never read a comic book. Even if they enjoy thrillers and action flicks, they still consider superhero movies to be for kids.

But superhero stories are much more than fanciful tales. They employ archetypes found in ancient Greek plays. They include themes of forgiveness, the hero’s journey, and redemption.  And let’s not forget the theme of love.
Lois Lane and Clark Kent (Superman) are one of the most iconic romantic pairings in literature. A dogged reporter, Lois is a mode…
