Traveling to Texas with NEW Tule Author Audrey Wick

Travel is my biggest inspiration for writing. My favorite element of telling a story is setting, so the places I write about are largely places that are special to me. As a reader, I also love discovering fresh places through an author’s work. The journey to a new location is always fun, and I’m fortunate to be able to do that for readers in FINDING TRUE NORTH.

PLANNING A ROYAL WEDDING 2:  THE CATERING
Jessica Hart

So, there you are, having found your prince, and you’ve decided when and where to get married.  But even trickier decisions lie ahead.  What about the reception?  Where will that be? What will you serve your guests and who will sit where?  Pity poor royal brides for whom the seating plan involves an extraordinarily complicated protocol dictating that a princess must be seated above a duchess, a duke above a lord and so on.

When life imitates fiction …  Jessica Hart had written over 50 romances before she penned a royal story in 2010, and Prince William promptly announced his engagement to Kate Middleton.  Another ten books later, Jessica joined forces with Sophie Weston, Liz Fielding and Anne McAllister to plan the Royal Wedding Invitation series of four books set around (you guessed it) a royal wedding. At which point Prince Harry obligingly asked Meghan Markle to marry him and they decided to get married at Windsor Castle. By a happy coincidence, Jessica has just finished writing a history of the castle with her other writing hat on, too. Continue reading





Meet IN WITH THE TIDE Author, Charlee James!

GIVEAWAY! Tell us why you’re excited to read In With The Tide for a chance to win a print copy. Readers in U.S. are eligible. Please leave your email address in the comments so we can contact you if you’re the winner.

Hello, Tule Readers! I’m so excited to be here with you to share a little bit about myself and my new release, In With the Tide. As a New England native, I spent a lot of summers on Cape Cod with my family. There’s something so peaceful about the cozy cottages with weathered cedar shingles, and golden sea grass that clusters on the rolling sand dunes. Treasures can be found in the quaint shops on Main Street in Chatham, and if you’re patient they often wash in with the tide in the form of shells and sea glass. Treasure is also found in the form of new beginnings for Lindsey Hunter and Damien Trent.

Happy-Ever-After Versus a Whodunit? C.J. Carmichael loves BOTH!

Write what you love is counsel often given to aspiring novelists. I took that advice when I focused on romance at the start of my writing career. My first novel—which I called “Love Letters From Grace” and which Harlequin Superromance titled “Jessie’s Father”—was published in 1999. After that, I wrote an average of three to four books a year and before I knew it I had thirty-five romances to my name. While proud of each of my books, I began to feel creatively drained.

So I revisited the adage to write what you love. Did I still love romance now as much as I did ten, twenty, or even thirty years ago? Truthfully, no. When I was looking to escape into a page-turning read, I was more inclined to buy a good character-driven mystery. Should I try to write one of those?
