MEETING AND WORKSHOP
With Award-winning screenwriter and bestselling novelist Patricia Burroughs

Speaking on: Writing with Passion

Whether it’s straight off the sports pages or in the best romance novels, emotion sells. Emotion hooks the reader’s imagination and emotion keeps the reader turning the pages long after the midnight hour.

Let’s talk about the magic of passion and how to brew it inside ourselves, how to transfigure it onto the page and how to cast the spell that leaves your reader’s heart in a delicious stranglehold until the final words, “The End.”

Warning: Pooks never recognized an anecdote too embarrassing to tell, well, until after she’d already told it.

Time: 9:30 a.m.—12:00 p.m.

Non-DARA members who do not attend breakfast must pay $10.00 visitor fee.

What an awesome cover, and displayed on an ereader? This rocks. 
My newest book, Martinis After Dark, is now available! http://getbook.at/MAD

Martinis After Dark is the first in my new romantic suspense series, located in Bernadette’s Bar. You may remember that Bernadette’s is the bar Cash frequents in Modern Girl’s Guide to Kink. I hope you enjoy this series as much as Modern Girl’s Guide!


A woman on the run and a player on the rocks have no business falling in love …

After CPA Lee O’Brien uncovers evidence of money laundering at her job, her apartment is ransacked and she’s forced into hiding. When she tries to rent an apartment under an assumed name, she learns it comes with a job — and a boss she can’t afford to fall for.

Tattooed, sexy bar owner Dylon Knightly has a big heart but no head for business. He knows the curvy, redheaded Irish beauty with the dry wit is in some kind of trouble, but he won’t turn her away … and can’t help wanting more.

The heat between them burns through their efforts to keep a professional distance. When Lee’s trouble comes looking for her, everything she holds most dear is threatened — including the life of the charming bartender who captured her heart. But even if they survive, will they be able to overcome the secrets between them?

Wow, the red I chose was a MISTAKE, huh? Well, anyway–

This week’s #BookQW [book quote word] is MISTAKE.

And this is also the first official unedited sneak from The Dead Shall Live, Volume Two of The Fury Triad!

Which I didn’t ask for permission to share. Is that a MISTAKE, too?

Ooops!
