Holiday Open House –December 19th

On December 19th we’re having our first open house. Come over and have some cyber cocoa and cookies. Tell us about your shopping, or what your reading. Do you have a new book coming out in 2006? This is great way to plug it for FREE.

For all those who make a comment, you’re eligible for a SORMAG Christmas Goody Bag.

Stop by and share your holiday cheer.

Happy Christmas, Merry New Year (and all that jazz)...I am one of the lucky few that have completed their shopping. I was done before Thanksgiving because I swear it gets crazier and crazier out there every year. I am currently reading the Season of Miracles anthology (with Rochelle Alers, Adrianne Byrd, Kayla Perrin and Janice Sims). I have so many books in my "To Be Read Pile" that it is unreal. I got backlogged while I was in school. I finished this summer and I have been trying to catch up. Well, I have rambled enough, so I will close now. --Dee

Happy Holidays, everyone! This is so nice! The hot chocolate, the fire, the roasted marshmellows, the hot cider! It's all really lovely! Anyway, My name is Gwyneth Bolton and I will have two books coming out in 2006. I'm a new author and realizing one of my life long dreams has been so wonderful. I feel so blessed. My first book, I'm Gonna Make You Love Me, will be published by Genesis Press in March. And my second book, If Only You Knew, will be published in July as a part of the new Harlequin Kimani category romance line. It's been great being a part of the Shades of Romance community of writers and readers and I look forward to getting to know you all better in the New Year! --Gwyneth Bolton

Happy Holidays everyone.
Thanks for the hot chocolate and cookies LaShaunda....another great year coming to a close..Whew, where has the time gone? Seems the older we get, the quicker it passes..Anyway, 2005 was a good year for me. I self-published my first book, When Death Comes a Knockin', a self-help, inspirational book about loss and grief and although it was hard work promoting, it was also fun. I had the opportunity to sign at the 2005 Essence Festival here in New Orleans. That was a great accomplishment for me. Hurricane Kartina turned our lives upside down for a time, but you know us folx, can't keep us down....
Anyhow, prayerfully, 2006 will be an even better year. I will be unveiling my newest novel, Sacrifices In The Name of Love. Here's a quick synopsis of it:


"As teenagers, how often do we heed the advice our parents give us? Better still, how often do we do jus the opposite of what they tell us? Well it is not different for teenagers Trey Martin, an African American, and Tessa Phillips, a Caucasian.

When Trey’s family move next door to the Phillips, Tessa’s father, Don, a self-professed racist, openly objects and spews racial threats and insults at the Martins. Tessa knows of her father’s racist beliefs, but they’re not enough to deter her from desiring Trey.

As her desires intensifies with time, Trey catches Tessa eyeing him and so begins their afternoon trysts. Eventually they get more than they bargained for and soon find themselves having to make the ultimate sacrifice. Will love be enough to sustain them through it all? Will their parents be able to forgive and forget them for their transgression? Will there be any ‘ever after’ for Trey and Tessa?

Sacrifices In The Name of Love is a coming of age story that will evoke all kinds of emotions as you become familiar with the main characters Trey and Tessa. They will take you on a roller coaster ride filled sexual escapades laced with love, lies, deceit, loss, sacrifices. Through the school of hard-knocks (life), they will emerge matured in both their personal and spiritual levels. Yet, will either be able to claim victory in the end?"

Hope you all have a safe and happy holiday season and remember, Jesus IS THE REASON for the season!

Love & Peace,

I would first like to wish everyone a safe and blessed holiday and may your New Year be the best ever.

I have 2 novels in the oven waiting for publication. Blue Lady Rising is done, edited and waiting. The Seduction of Mr. Bradley is nearly ready for a professional edit. I hope to publish both novels in 2006. Please visit my website for information on my work.

Hello everyone,

I've enjoyed being a part of the SORMAG community. It's been a terrific year for me as I'm celebrating the release of my second novel titled, Dancing with Temptation. If you have a minute, stop by my website at www.Barbarajoewilliams, and read an excerpt from both of my books. I'm sure that you'll be intrigued.
Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas to all!

Hi Everyone, and Happy Holidays!

My Christmas is just working and being glad to see another one. I miss my mother and she was my Christmas. Besides, I don't have that much money to shop so it will be a sad Christmas for me, but a good one all the same. I am thankful for all my blessings now and the ones in the future.

My gift to myself is to sell one million copies of my novels, I CONFESS and EVERYTHING AND MORE. It's my dream to introduce my writing to the many readers who love reading books the way I do about reality based situations. I would love to share my gift of words with my readers.

I wish everyone success in everything they are trying to achieve. God blessings for all the years to come.
