<h3>Interview with Author Dina Silver</h3>
<p><strong>Jean / The Lovebug Blog: When did you first fall in love with chick lit and/or romance?</strong></p>
<p><span style="color: #ff00ff;"><strong>Dina Silver:</strong> </span>For sure, when I read Bridget Jones’ Diary. I could read that book again tomorrow and laugh just as hard as I did the first time. One of my other favorite chick-lit books is The Girl’s Guide to Hunting and Fishing. Both books were pioneers in the genre. As for romance in general, I’ve always been a huge Pride &amp; Prejudice goober.</p>
<p><strong>What part of writing chick lit do you enjoy the most?</strong></p>
<p><span style="color: #ff00ff;"><strong>Dina:</strong> </span>The humor. Anytime I can infuse wit into a story it makes me happy.</p>
<p><strong>Have you ever made yourself cry while writing a scene between your heroine and hero?</strong></p>
<p>I have. There were a few scenes in <a title="Buy One Pink Line by Dina Silver now! I said... right now! ;)" href="[url="http://www.amazon.com/One-Pink-Line-ebook/dp/B0062OMP38/ref=pd_cp_kstore_0"]http://www.amazon.com/One-Pink-Line-ebook/dp/B0062OMP38/ref=pd_cp_kstore_0[/url]" target="_blank">One Pink Line</a> that have made me teary.</p>
<p><strong>Chick lit is best known for its hunky heroes, career dramas, best friends who rock, and coming of age. Are there any ways in which your own life resembles chick lit?</strong></p>
<p><strong><span style="color: #ff00ff;">Dina:</span></strong> All of the above! Just kidding. Well, actually, my 2nd novel,<a title="Get Kat Fight by Dina Silver" href="[url="http://www.amazon.com/Kat-Fight-ebook/dp/B008FPYEN6/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&amp;ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1368755316&amp;sr=1-1&amp;keywords=kat+fight"]http://www.amazon.com/Kat-Fight-ebook/dp/B008FPYEN6/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&amp;ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1368755316&amp;sr=1-1&amp;keywords=kat+fight[/url]" target="_blank"> Kat Fight</a>, is loosely based on how I met my husband…so, yes. Much of that book resembles my real life.</p>
<p><strong>If you had a chance to go on a date with one of the heroes from your novels, who would you pick and why?</strong></p>
<p><span style="color: #ff00ff;"><strong>Dina:</strong></span> Wow. That’s a tough one b/c I’ve written some really good guys. Maybe Cam from <a title="Get Dina Silver's Finding Bliss" href="[url="http://www.amazon.com/Finding-Bliss-Dina-Silver/dp/1477807365/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&amp;ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1368755376&amp;sr=1-1&amp;keywords=finding+bliss"]http://www.amazon.com/Finding-Bliss-Dina-Silver/dp/1477807365/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&amp;ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1368755376&amp;sr=1-1&amp;keywords=finding+bliss[/url]" target="_blank">Finding Bliss</a>.

Book Giveaway and Why Author Talli Roland Loves Chick Lit

  Posted by Jean Oram , 18 May 2013 · 664 views

<p>It’s International Chick Lit Month and guess what? I have something special for you. To kick off this month of celebrating books that make us laugh, love, and cry, I’ve lined up several chick lit authors who knock my socks off to share what they love about the genre of chick lit as well as some extra fun for readers.</p>
<p>Today the fabulous Canadian-turned-Brit, Talli Roland, author of Build a Man and The Pollyanna Plan (among several others) is here to chat about chick lit romance and what she loves about it. (If you haven’t given Talli a shot, download a free copy of her novella The Miracle at the Museum of Broken Hearts–I <em>love</em> how she turns around broken hearts and dream believers into a happily ever after. Awww. As well, you’ll LOVE The Pollyanna Plan which includes the point of view from a very hunky, sweet, but wounded hero–you can win your own copy!)</p>
<div id="attachment_197" class="wp-caption aligncenter" style="width: 428px"><a href="[url="http://www.jeanoram.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/talliroland2.jpg"]http://www.jeanoram.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/talliroland2.jpg[/url]"><img class="size-full wp-image-197" alt="win a copy of The Polyanna Plan by Talli Roland" src="[url="http://www.jeanoram.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/talliroland2.jpg"]http://www.jeanoram.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/talliroland2.jpg[/url]" width="418" height="418" /></a><p class="wp-caption-text">Win an eCopy of The Pollyanna Plan! (And check out her other fun reads as well.)</p></div>
<p>And before you go today, be sure to leave a comment after the interview below as Talli is giving away two ecopies of The Pollyanna Plan to commenters (I’m reading it right now and it is FABuLOUS). Read on to find out how you could win!</p>
<h3>Interview with Author Talli Roland</h3>
<p><strong>Jean/The Lovebug Blog: When were you first introduced to chick lit or romance? Who was your first chick lit or romance love? </strong></p>
<p><span style="color: #ff00ff;"><strong>Talli Roland:</strong></span> I didn’t identify it as chick lit at the time, but the first author I came across was Sophie Kinsella and the Shopaholic series. I loved that Becky was fallible yet lovable, and that she was trying hard to find her way in the world.</p>
<p><strong>Jean: What do you enjoy most about writing chick lit?</strong></p>
<p><strong><span style="color: #ff00ff;">Talli:</span></strong> I really like that the genre focuses on a woman’s growth and development through actions of her own, and not necessarily because of a relationship, like typical romances. Chick lit is often degraded as high heels and shopping, and while there’s nothing wrong with those elements, it can also address more serious issues in a light-hearted way, too.</p>
<p><strong>Jean:</strong> <strong>Chick lit is best known for to-die-for shoes, career traumas &amp; drama, handsome heroes, and best friends. In what ways does your own life resemble chick lit right now?</strong></p>
<p><span style="color: #ff00ff;"><strong>Talli:</strong> </span>Um . . . given I have a four-month-old baby, not much – unless the drama involves a screaming child! The genre is evolving to include more elements than the stereotypical ones, though, and I think that’s a great thing. Women aren’t just chocolate and cupcakes, and there’s no reason why chick lit can’t reflect the diversity of their lives. <a class="embedtweet" title="Tweet this!" href="[url="https://twitter.com/intent/tweet?text=Women%20aren%E2%80%99t%20just%20chocolate%20and%20cupcakes%2C%20and%20there%E2%80%99s%20no%20reason%20why%20chick%20lit%20can%E2%80%99t%20reflect%20the%20diversity%20of%20their%20lives.%20~%20%40talliroland"]https://twitter.com/intent/tweet?text=Women%20aren%E2%80%99t%20just%20chocolate%20and%20cupcakes%2C%20and%20there%E2%80%99s%20no%20reason%20why%20chick%20lit%20can%E2%80%99t%20reflect%20the%20diversity%20of%20their%20lives.%20~%20%40talliroland[/url]" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Tweet this!</a></p>
<p><strong>Jean: When you write the happily-ever-after scenes in your books do you ever get the heart gooshies? (Those weird tingles and ooey-gooey patters in your chest?) Which of your happily ever after scenes is your favourite?</strong></p>
<p><span style="color: #ff00ff;"><strong>Talli:</strong> </span>To be completely honest, I’d prefer not to always wrap up everything with a happy ending. I’m a fan of ambiguous endings! Whenever I’ve tried to end a novel on an uncertain note, though, I’ve received a huge thumbs-down from critique partners and beta readers. I do like the ending of The Pollyanna Plan, though. I won’t give anything away, but it does conclude on a positive note!</p>
<p><strong>Jean: In your new book (which readers can WIN!) The Pollyanna Plan, the heroine Emma changes the way she looks at life in hopes of turning her life around–and finding true love. Have you ever changed the way you looked at life with great (or not-so-great) results?</strong></p>
<p><span style="color: #ff00ff;"><strong>Talli:</strong></span> I have! After a few years of toiling in the corporate world, I became very disillusioned with the thought of working to live. I quit my job, sold my car and possessions, and moved to Poland to teach English. It was a bit crazy, but I’m so glad I took the plunge. I never went back to the corporate life again!</p>
<p><strong>Jean: Where can readers find you and your books?</strong></p>

Mother’s Dating Advice: A Deleted Scene

  Posted by Jean Oram , 12 May 2013 · 372 views

<h3>Happy Mother’s Day!</h3>
<p>Today, in honour of the mothers in our lives I am going to share a deleted scene from Champagne and Lemon Drops that contains Beth’s mother.</p>
<p>Champagne and Lemon Drops went through many revisions and in one of them Beth’s (the heroine) mother was still alive. (As well, Oz became a drunk–his father was dead, Cynthia was a divorcée with a kid, Beth was afraid of hereditary cancer, and Katie had her own issues that she fought out in her own point of view in the story. An editor called that version of the story “ambitious” which is just a nice way of saying I had way too much going on and not enough room to develop it all! And so out came the mighty delete key!).</p>
<p>In fact, in this version of Champagne and Lemon Drops (was then called Caviar and Lemon Drops) Beth’s parents were happily married. But that didn’t work for the story’s revisions nor Beth’s internal motivations. So I ruthlessly broke up the parents, shipped the dad off to remote locations and killed off the mother. EEK!</p>
<p>Um. Happy Mother’s Day?</p>
<p>Anyway, relationships with mothers can be everything from that rock solid connection and friendship to hating to be around each other. They know the best of us and the worst of us and can bring out both parts all at once. As well, sometimes we just want our moms to pull us into their arms and tell us what we should do with our big confusing lives. In the deleted scene below, that is exactly what Beth’s mother does. But it doesn’t end up solving her problems. Because, hey love and life is complicated and where would the story be if a mom could just sweep in and clean up the mess?</p>
<p>So in honour of Mother’s Day here is Beth sharing her heartache with her mother after Oz accidentally hurts her grandmother and after hearing some pushy advice from her sister.</p>
<h3>Deleted scene from Champagne and Lemon Drops:</h3>
<p>Cynthia turned at the door. “Nash is the answer. He’s the perfect rebound guy.”</p>
<p>Beth frowned at the sound of her sister marching down the stairs. Did she really have her blessing as well as half the town’s? And could she move on? And with Nash?</p>
<p>A few minutes later, about the time Beth got into her latest good read–the strapping hero was about to discover the heroine filching carrots from his garden–her mom knocked at her open bedroom door.</p>
<p>Reluctantly, she bookmarked the page as her mom placed herself at the small student desk across from Beth. She folded her hands on top of the desk indicating it was Counselor Mom time. Beth took a reassuring pull off her beer.</p>
<p>“How are you doing, honey?”</p>
<p>“Mom, I’m not in the mood for a lecture, okay? I feel guilty enough for Gran and know I should have tried harder to stop Oz. I know everyone’s disappointed in me. And I know I am stuck and need to move on. But I need time.”</p>
<p>“I’m only here to present the other side of the coin.”</p>
<p>“Mom…”</p>
<p>“Just because Oz is having a tough time, it doesn’t mean you should necessarily abandon him.” She held out a hand to keep Beth from speaking. “Although, it is perfectly within your rights to do so. You’ve tried hard and you’ve given him time. The intervention was admirable. I know things may feel out of hand at the moment, but allow the man some time. You said you’d give him a year, so give him that year. Anyone else you may be thinking of, if they’re worth it, will wait.”</p>
<p>“Oz doesn’t want the year, Mom. He said…” Beth’s voice faltered and she released the pink bedspread she’d bunched in her hands.</p>
<p>“Was he drunk when he said that?”</p>
<p>She nodded.</p>
<p>“Well,” her mom leaned back and placed her hands in her lap, “then what he said can’t be trusted. His actions say he still loves you.”</p>
<p>Beth swiped at the tears streaming down her face and licked away the salty pool gathered at her lips.</p>
<p>“He still loves me?”</p>
<p>“He tried to dance with your patients and especially Gran. I heard he arrived with a rose?”</p>
<p>“That was just drunk Oz.”</p>
<p>“He’s trying to reach out to you honey; he doesn’t want to lose you. I bet he heard that doctor fellow is after you and I’ll bet that’s what’s smartened him right up.” Her mom sat up straight, smiling.</p>
<p>“He hurt Gran.” Beth let out a sob. Why did love have to be so complicated? Why couldn’t she let Oz go and move on? Why did Nash’s strength and stability have to be so tempting?</p>
<p>And when on earth did she become so tempted?</p>
<p>Her mom moved onto the bed to pat her back and she sagged into her mother’s arms.</p>
<p>“I can’t wait forever, Mom. What if I get breast cancer like you and I don’t notice and I have to have a mastectomy and then I can’t breastfeed? Or what if I get ovarian cancer like they think Granny May had? I’ll never have babies.” She wiped her eyes and sat up. “Cynthia’s right. I can’t wait forever.”</p>
<p>“Granny May managed to have me and my sister before The Cancer.”</p>
<p>“But she passed away after having Auntie Grace and she didn’t even get to enjoy you guys!”</p>
<p>“You’re young, Beth. Nobody is asking you to wait forever. You just need to give Oz time and then go talk to him. Don’t live in fear and rush one of the biggest and most important things in your life.”</p>

Save a Tree, Read an Ebook

  Posted by Jean Oram , 20 April 2013 · 1,397 views

<p>This Earth Day save a tree. Read an ebook.</p>
<p>And since there is nothing more pleasing than finding a new author you love I’ve gathered several authors who all have free romance ebooks. Authors range from just starting out to familiar faces on the Amazon top 100 lists (and bestseller lists!). All these stories have a vein of romance from a little bit that will keep you wondering when the main characters will finally get together, to romance being the main plot, to the romance being hot and heavy. There is something for everyone and the best part is these books are all FREE or on sale (99c) this weekend.</p>
<p>So grab your ereader or reading device and let’s get downloading! Free Kindle books for all!</p>

So why did the shockingly handsome rogue agree to marry her? When Gideon flashes his wicked, seductive smile, the reason hardly matters.</p>

New Romance Ebook Release: Champagne and Lemon Drops (Book 1 Blueberry Springs)

  Posted by Jean Oram , 13 March 2013 · 709 views

<p>All right! Last Friday my chick lit contemporary romance, book 1 of the Blueberry Springs series, Champagne and Lemon Drops went live as an ebook. Since then I have been hunting pirates, hence the delay in announcing the release. However, Amazon’s copyright infringement department did a bang up job of catching the bad guys and my dear readers, you are safe from scams once again!</p>
<p>Can I hear a “Wahoo!”</p>
<div id="attachment_83" class="wp-caption aligncenter" style="width: 208px"><a href="[url="http://www.jeanoram.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/ChampagneLemonDrops_20K.jpg"]http://www.jeanoram.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/ChampagneLemonDrops_20K.jpg[/url]"><img class="size-full wp-image-83" alt="Champagne and Lemon Drops" src="[url="http://www.jeanoram.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/ChampagneLemonDrops_20K.jpg"]http://www.jeanoram.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/ChampagneLemonDrops_20K.jpg[/url]" width="198" height="285" /></a><p class="wp-caption-text">New Release! Scroll down to find out how to get your hands on a copy!</p></div>
<h3>Champagne and Lemon Drops Blurb:</h3>
<p>One woman. Two men. One meddling small town.</p>
<p>Raised by her older sister in the small town of Blueberry Springs, all Beth Wilkinson wants is to create a family so big she’ll never be alone. Things are going great until her accountant fiancé, Oz, experiences a family trauma, forcing him to rethink everything from his own career to their nuptial plans—leaving Beth alone.</p>
<p>As Beth works to rediscover her former bold and independent self in hopes of reattracting Oz, she catches the eye of the charming new city doctor, Nash. Not only does he see her as she’d like to be seen, but he knows exactly what he wants from life—and that includes Beth.</p>
<p>Torn between the two men, as well as two versions of herself, Beth discovers that love and dreams are much more complicated than they seem.</p>
<p>A chick lit contemporary romance that will appeal to fans of Jennifer Weiner, Jane Green, and Meg Cabot, and will have readers wondering who the hell Beth should choose.</p>
<p style="text-align: center;">~~~~</p>
<h3 style="text-align: left;">A True Story of Having to Choose From the Author</h3>
<p style="text-align: left;"><strong>Have you ever had to choose between two men? I sort of did once</strong> in university. I had been dating a guy off and on during high school but I kept leaving to do things like travel in Europe, work as a ski instructor in the mountains, and finally, to go away to university. We were great friends. Then in university at the end of my first year I met The One. But we were still just acquaintances (and didn’t know we were THE ONEs yet)–but he was the kind of man you dreamed about all summer long. When I went back that fall, and just before Christmas break, I realized he was, indeed, THE ONE. Over break I saw the ex-boyfriend-back-to-friends-man again. And as I watched him make a shot at the pool table I was struck, a lot like Beth in the story <em>Champagne and Lemon Drops</em>, that this guy was not The One. He was great, we had tons of fun, but we didn’t make each other a better person when we hung out together–not to say we were evil or brought out the worst in each other. We just weren’t better. And so I made my choice. It was obvious and easy, not like the choice Beth, the main character, has to make in <em>Champagne and Lemon Drops</em>.</p>
<p style="text-align: left;">Me and THE ONE have been married for fourteen years and he still makes my heart go pitty-pat. Plus, he doesn’t want to change me like maybe one of the heroes in the book wants to do with Beth.</p>
