Okay so it looks like I fell off the planet. Promise - I'm still here. The last four years have been ... hard. There's no other word for it. Everything is fine. I'm fine, but I've been the caregiver of my mom who has Dementia. Between her needs, work, etc I seem to have lost control of my time. I am still writing and am trying hard to get back to my blog.

In case you weren't aware Phaze and HSWF which where under the Mundania Umbrella have closed. I was smart enough to get my titles back before all this happened. I'm happy to say the three books I sold to HSWF have been picked up by Melange Books and are available through their Satin Books imprint. I have even sold a new title to them called Magical Quest due out in 2022

I have also been lucky enough to find a publisher for my Vespian Way series. I'm now with Blushing Books under the name of Bethany Drake. I have five titles out with them right now and am close to submitting two more. There's Desire's Destiny, Desire's Duty and Desire's Promise. Then there is two in my werewolf series, Tears of the Queen and Legend of the Tears. I have just finished the rough draft of the third book in the series and have plans for a fourth one the moment I submit it.

I'll probably still be sporadic here on the blog. Unless I win the lottery and can hire someone to help me I can't avoid it, but know I'm still here still working hard in the background and am hoping to do better at keeping my blog alive.

These wonderful people host authors of Erotic Romance.

The Blue Night, Black Iron, Golden Rope is cutting back on the erotic romances reviews. With a few exceptions, she'll be reviewing/featuring work she has personally read, from authors she knows. She's still very interested in M/M anything, but cutting back on M/F contemporary romances and paranormal romance. Seems there are already tons of review blogs devoted to those, and she's not reading the genre that much. She's not really interested in are inspirational romance, Young Adult, and New Adult categories. Contact Crane at cranehanabooks at gmail dot com for info or to schedule a date.

Contact jroseallister at gmail dot com for info or to schedule a date.

Beyond Romance hosts authors every Wednesday and Saturday. Typically she is booked several months ahead of time. Because she writes erotic romance and erotica, her blog is behind a warning screen, but she's happy to host non-erotic books as long as the authors don't mind this.  Contact her at http://www.lisabetsarai.com/links.html for more info.

Katya Armock host authors on her blog on Wednesdays for her Wednesday Words feature. The rules are simple: Talk about one to five words that you love.

She writes erotic paranormal romance, but she likes to read a variety of genres. Here's her general disclaimer: I am OK with all heat levels, but please refrain from the commonly objectionable content you see detailed as no-nos in most publishers' guidelines.

Adriana Kraft hosts mostly erotic romance. A basic blog or interview with your cover, blurb and excerpt is what she normally posts. She does ask that you keep your blogs to under 100 words. Blogs are also due four days before your scheduled blog.  Contact her at adrianakraft99 at yahoo dot com for more info.

A.J. Wiliams does author spotlights on Mondays and Fridays unless you have a specific date in mind. If you wish to write a blog the only restriction she has is no blogs about religion or politics.

Patricia Green Books hosts erotic romance authors. If there is spanking or BDSM in the mix, that's encouraged. She hopes no one is offended but she doesn't do M/M or M/M/F manage but does to F/F and F/F/M menage. She does apologize but she needs to think about what her readers expect from her. Please contact her at pig at patriciagreenbooks dot com for more info.

  1. Hi. Barbara. I'm in the process of revamping the Blue Night blog, so I'm having to cut down on the number and kinds of reviews I'll be posting in the future. With a few exceptions, I'll be reviewing/featuring work I have personally read, from authors I know. I'm still very interested in M/M anything, but I'm cutting back on M/F contemporary romances and paranormal romance. Seems there are already tons of review blogs devoted to those, and I'm not reading the genre that much.
