RNN welcomes author Logan Belle to talk about her new release and its relation to "Lady Chatterly's Lover."
Love and The Lady: Why I Can’t Forget Lady Chatterley’s Lover
By Logan Belle
My fiancé was cleaning out a closet when he found his dusty old copy of D. H. Lawrence’s Lady Chatterley’s Lover. He told me it was the first “erotic” novel he’d ever read. I said it was probably mine, too. He said, you should write a modern version of it. I said, you’re crazy. You don’t re-paint the Mona Lisa.

Today, RNN hosts L.A. Witt for a guest post about Writing the Rainbow - or both heterosexual and gay romance.
Writing the Rainbow
By: L.A. Witt
I’m one of those authors who writes both hetero[sexual] and gay romances. Also some bisexual, transgender, and lesbian stories in there, but my work is predominantly either hetero or gay.
Writing on those two sides of the sexuality fence is interesting to say the least. There are things that will be an issue in one genre, but not another. Homophobia as a central issue, for example. Concern about unintended pregnancies. Sexual identity will usually be addressed differently (i.e., a straight man isn’t generally going to be wrestling with, trying to hide, or actively otherwise concerned about the fact that he’s interested in women).

RNN is pleased to host Sarah M. Anderson for the Book Trailer Reveal for The Bolton Brothers: Brick by Brick!
Yes, some people pay money for book trailers from trained professionals who know what they’re doing. And some people (I’m looking at you, Tessa Dare!) make them with their daughters’ Barbies.
I’m not like those people. I’m too cheap to pay for trailers and I have a son—no Barbies.
Which means one thing. I have Legos. Lots and lots of Legos.

RNN is pleased to host author Carrie Ann Ryan who stops by to talk about Finding the Balance. Ryan's latest release is "Her Warriors' Three Wishes."
From Carrie Ann Ryan: Finding the Balance
So, tell me, how can you find the balance between three people in a romance? I love reading and writing ménages where the focus is on the romance, rather than just where the parts go. *blushes* Yes, that’s an important part too, but I like the relationships. When I started out writing my first ménage romance, Trinity Bound, I wanted to make sure that my triad worked as a group of three where any of them could be the “center”. No, still not talking position guys. *wink* I also wanted to be able to look at each “duo” within the triad and find common ground and attraction.
