It was in the autumn of my life, when that dreaded prognosis arrived. Unheralded and harsh, but not unexpected, the reality of such a forecast was this: anyone who dared step on the stage knew that one day the curtain would come down. Unlike others given the directive, however, I refused to follow prescribed protocol for such revelations, those of shock, anger, or depression, for I never doubted the prediction of my course, I simply chose instead to proceed with great rapidity straight to the interminable question of, “Why me?” Habitually disposed to disobedience (I confess here my one great flaw) I remained headstrong and demanding, and so, ever resolute, I refused to exit unt…

Guest Post: New Year, New Love? by Nona Raines

Thanks so much for having me here today, Holly, and Happy New Year, everyone! At the birth of each New Year, we make all kinds of promises to ourselves in the form of resolutions: we'll stop biting our fingernails, start jogging every morning, or stick to a high-fiber diet (donuts have fiber, don't they?) "Out with the old and in with the new", we cry as the old year closes and the New Year begins.
But what if you are one of the things left behind? That's what happens to Mia Manetti, the heroine of my BDSM themed erotic romance Uncollared. Or at least, that's how she feels—as though she's been swept aside like so much used confetti. When her Dom, Philip, tells her they're over, she's caught by surprise and torn between hurt and anger.
What do you when the man you love lets you go? You get mad, you feel sorry for yourself and finally, you move on. How better to move on (and to prove to the world that you're past it) than to find a new man? Mia agr…

Guest Post & Giveaway: The Vampire is (un)Dead -- Long Live the Vampire! by A. Sangrey Black (H.A. Fowler)

Hi Everyone! Please help me welcome author A. Sangrey Black to Reading with Holly today! :)

I hear/read the mutters every day on blogs, forums, and in the press lately: vampires are SO over. The glut of the market begun by the TWILIGHT phenomenon has burned out a large chunk of the reading public. They don't care if they never see another blood-drinking, brooding, shadow-dwelling emo creature of the night as long as they live, and that vampire fiction is dying out, staked in the sun to melt/crumble to dust/burst into flames. While it's true that the OMG VAMPIRES ARE EVERYWHERE fad has definitely eased, and sadly, a lot of publishers aren't quite as eager to scoop up any and all fanged fiction as they might have been a few years ago, I am here to tell you that that creatures of the night are here to stay. The fact is, vampire fiction (outside of folklore) has ebbed and flowed in popularity cycles since the generally accepted birth of the genre in John Polidori's early 19t…
