So, This Is It »

Renee: Sheesh! I don’t even know what to say. Am I sad to see RRT come to a close? Yes! Three years ago, one of our original members saw a need for those of us who were persuing publication to have a public forum. With her help we launched Romance Roundtable. During those three years [...]

Let’s Celebrate! »

We are excited to welcome to the table a favorite of the Roundtablers, Lori Brighton! Laurie: Welcome Lori! So, what have you been up to lately? Lori: Well…I have a new release out. A contemporary paranormal romance called The Ghost Hunter. It’s available… *Renee runs into the room waving her hands like she’s being attacked [...]

Happy Labor Day! »

Strange is our situation here upon earth. Each of us comes for a short visit, not knowing why, yet sometimes seeming to a divine purpose. From the standpoint of daily life, however, there is one thing we do know: That we are here for the sake of others…for the countless unknown souls with whose fate [...]

Happy Easter! »

The writers of the Roundtable wish you a very Happy Easter! For those who don’t celebrate, hope your weekend is glorious!

RWA’s Golden Heart and Rita »

Did you enter the Golden Heart this year?  If not, who do you hope will receive the Rita nod? P.S.  Announcements will be made tomorrow. (As if you didn’t know. ;) )

Great Reads! »

We have a simple (well maybe not so simple for some of us) question for y’all today. What was/were your favorite book(s) of 2009?  And why?

Helen Scott Taylor »

Thank you to the gals at Romance Roundtable for having me as a guest today. I’m delighted to be here. I’m a great lover of all things Celtic. As I live in England, I’m surrounded by ancient ruins and other Celtic memorabilia, so I’m in the ideal place to indulge my interest. I based the [...]

2010: What A Year To Write »

Alice posed this question for all of us: What do we hope to accomplish with our writing in 2010? These were some of the responses: Brynna said: First and foremost, to write every day.  And to complete the sequel to Timeless. Christiana said: I want to write more and worry less about selling. Renee said: [...]

One Special Gift »

Since many of us are in the holiday mode, shopping for our family and friends and generally preparing for the craziness that is this holiday, I thought I’d pose this question today to bring in the nostalgia and the thankfulness of the season. What is the one most special gift someone ever gave you? (It [...]

Happy Labor Day »

If You Could… »

Alice: If you could climb inside the pages of any book and become part of it’s story, what book would it be, and why?   Renee: This one is very hard. There are so many books that I felt as if I did climb into. I’ll have to think on this one and come back. [...]

Question of the Day »

Would you be a violin? Or perhaps a viola? The mandolin? Are you a bass guitar or an acoustic? Drums? A dulcimer? Maracas, or a tambourine? A piccolo? Bells, maybe a harp? If you were a musical instrument, what would you be and why? Be creative, be honest, I mean we are writers, right? Then [...]

The Let Down »

We’ve been pretty excited about the convention here at Romance Roundtable. Some of that has translated into good word counts, fresh ideas, and even an attempt or two at coming up with a tag line. That isn’t always the case. Sometimes we have every reason to expect the most of ourselves, and it’s simply not [...]

They’re heeeerrrre »

Well, we made it back, more or less in one piece, and not a little bit exhausted. Seven of the ten Roundtablers had the opportunity to attend the 2009 RWA National Conference held in DC last week. For most of us, it was the first time we’d met face to face after nearly three years [...]

Book Advance? »

You just landed a huge publishing contract. What is the first thing you do? Renee: Bow to the porcelain god. Alice: Pft!  I was sure you’d say hire a good lawyer for your db. Brynna: Either open a no kill shelter or donate a huge sum to one already in existence! Arianna: Are we talking [...]
