Top 5 Reasons I'm a Romance Writer with Katie MacAlister of DRAGON FALL (#Giveaway)



Top 5 Reasons I'm a Romance Writer


1. All the heroes are mine.
I just share them with readers when I'm busy
doing something else.

2. Who doesn't want to remember what it's like falling in love again
(and again, and again...)?
The world needs more romance in it, and I can
focus on writing stories where someone finds the one person meant to be
with him or her.

3. Witty banter and amusing anecdotes! 
The ability to make characters
say things that you couldn't say in normal life is very freeing. It also
allows you to work out any number of innuendoes and euphemisms, and
even, at times, getting a little revenge with people who deserve to be a
villain in a book.

4. The boss is reasonable. 
There are days when it's just impossible to
write funny or romantic, and on those days, I give my muse some time off
and try not to worry about the looming deadline. The motto around my
house is: a happy muse is a muse who is generous with the love scenes
and dishy heroes

5. It's better than non-fiction!
I've written several books on computers
and software, and in NONE of them was I allowed to torment characters,
make them fall in love, or write jokes. Being able to write stories with
all of that, plus deal with handsome men who just might want to visit a
widowed romance writer of mature years (*cough*) makes all the hard work
worthwhile.

YOU FLIRT WITH FIRE...

For Aoife Dakar, seeing is believing-and she's seen some extraordinary things. It's too bad no one else believes that she witnessed a supernatural murder at an outdoor fair. Returning to the scene for proof, Aoife encounters a wise-cracking demon dog-and a gloriously naked man who can shift into a dragon and kiss like a god. Now thrust into a fantastical world that's both exhilarating and terrifying, Aoife is about to learn just how hot a dragon's fire burns.

WHEN YOU DATE A DRAGON

Kostya has no time for a human woman with endless questions, no matter how gorgeous or tempting she is. He must break the curse that has splintered the dragon clans before more of his kind die. But his powerful attraction to Aoife runs much deeper than the physical-and there may be more to her than even his sharp dragon eyes can see. To survive the coming battle for the fate of his race, he needs a mate of true heart and soul . . .
