Favorite Romance Blogs?

Posted by: Susan Lute
Currently Working On: Short contemporary romance revisions, and the initial phase of a single title contemporary romance, getting non-fiction book ready to send to agent.
Mood: Feeling pretty darn good.

I would love to say something clever and post a cool picture or two (you'll also notice I'm link challenged), but the truth is, discussing my favorite romance blogs is a bit of a sticky wicket for me. You see, I don’t often visit many blogs. For me, it’s a time management issue. I either get to spend time on the internet, or time writing :)

That being said, it turns out this blog, is my favorite. I laugh often, learn new things, get to catch up with my fellow authors. I also really like Delilah Marvelle’s blog, She only posts twice a month; good planning I’d say from a time management point of view, and I love her historical references. I’ve visited Jane Porter’s blog, She’s always interesting. Look where her writing has taken her. ODD MOM OUT is being made into a movie in which she has a cameo role. Very cool. I have on occasion been known to visit agent Jessica Foust’s blog, There’s a woman who knows her industry. And, if you catch the Knight Agency blog,, during the Sundance Film Festival, some exciting stuff goes on there.

So, though I’d love to say, I'm a blog slut, it’s probably better that I just keep writing. On my own website, I call it “Let’s talk”. Less formal than a blog, and if I post only once or twice a month, you’ll know it’s because I’ve had my nose buried in my current manuscript.

Until next month, chiao!

If you're a blog slut, I must be a blog whore, LOL! Oh, and thank you for thinking my ramblings are worth something :D

Thank goodness, Su! Now I won't feel so lonely when it's my turn to blog about this topic and I don't have much to add. But I also have a few weeks to come up with some "favorites." LOL!

I do like the way Delilah posts a couple times a month. Hmm. If I put that on my schedule, I might be able to manage that also!

I LOVE your honesty and humor. I have slutty times and virginal times (can you be a virgin after being a slut?). That is I go into this space of reading lots and lots of blogs for maybe a week (usually after finishing a book) or two to catch up. Then I start the next manuscript and become a blog virgin again, not letting anyone seduce me.

LOL! Genene, this was a hard topic for me for sure, and you can see I didn't trust the link process. It didn't seem to be working. I need a dialog bubble that says, "link working, lady!" during the composing stage :)

Delilah, I like your ramblings. Oh, and btw, I have to force myself to put MISTRESS OF PLEASURE down, so I can get some sleep and go to work with my mind not blurred from reading all night :) Fabulous book, girl.

Maggie, thanks. It's always a challenge for me, how to make my entries interesting. I like your idea of virgin to slut and back to virgin. Wouldn't that be interesting down at the gyn's office :)

Virgin/whore is a matter of mindset and shoes. And you can change both, so you go, Susan!

Thanks Jessa... And don't I love my shoes :) Your turn next.
