Happy Loving Day 2014!!! Win Fabulous Prizes

Roslyn+%26+Whitney

 

 

Today is Loving Day. A celebration in recognition of the 1969 U.S. Supreme Court ruling nullifying anti-miscegenation laws all over the United States. I’m not sure when I first became aware of Loving Day and its significance, but I think it was sometime in the mid-nineties. Certainly I was cognizant of it on December 4, 1999, which was my own “loving day.” The day I married the most honorable man I know, Whit Holcomb. And here’s the thing, on my wedding day my marriage was actually illegal in my home state of Alabama. It was not until 2002 that interracial marriage became legal there, and then only by a 60% margin. Obviously the vote was only pro forma, but still, it still strikes as odd that in my own lifetime people are still struggling with such a basic freedom as the right to choose who you marry.

My own love life has always been a strong influence on the stories I write. No, none of my books are autobiographical, though certainly I’ve written heroes that remind me of my husband. The hero of my latest book Thad Hollister has a lot in common with my husband, so to honor that I’m giving away a copy of Superstar in today’s Loving Day bloghop. Be sure to enter the rafflecopter for your chance to win, and hop over to all the blogs to check out the tremendous array of prizes. Good luck, and always, thank you so much for being a fan.

How Can I Get You to Write Reviews?

I’ve been wondering about this one for a while, so I’ll just put it out there in my usual manner and see who salutes. What does it take to get you to review a book? I think I understand that people have very little time and often simply don’t want to be bothered. That’s why I offer contests and such, but typically all I get is crickets. Would free books help? Maybe a form you could simply fill out? Or is it that people don’t know where to post reviews? I really need some feedback on this issue, because I’ve got a pretty good idea of what my sales are and my reviews on various sites don’t reflect those numbers AT ALL.

Reviews sell books, but I must admit that’s not my only motivation. I simply want to hear from readers. I get a bit confused when I read a book that’s gotten dozens of reviews and it turns out to be subpar. It makes me wonder how that book got so many reviews when mine don’t get many. What are those authors doing that I’m not doing. So, I’m asking you to tell me. What motivates you to write a review? Oh, and if there’s something else that you feel I should be doing or not doing you can let me know that too. Thanks for your feedback.
