DESIRES' SECRETS from Holly Jody Gill

Image
Good morning, dear readers! 
 And happy holidays! We are having a special Monday edition of Coffee with Colette this week ahead of Christmas Eve, and as I will be devoting most of the next two weeks completing TWO novels, I will not have any guests again until January 7th, 2014, as I must tear myself away from social media so as not to be distracted by - oh, was that a dragonfly?
What better way to end the year than with fan-favorite, fellow Secret Cravings Publishing author Holly Jody Gill!
Just as I had wished when she last joined me in July, Holly is back to tell you about the Third Volume in her Desires series, Desires' Secrets! Holly first stopped by in March to introduce Volume One: Desires, then this summer returned with Volume Two: Touching Angel's Desires,  so be sure to check out those guest spots if you missed them or need to refresh your memory. 
As always, Holly has brought you two excerpts: one in mild and another in extra spicy! That's the way to heat up your ho…

Maria Grace and the Tale of a Recalcitrant Muse

Image
Good morning, dear readers!

I always love having this fellow Austen Variations Author  join me for Coffee because I have the chance to get to know her better. My guest today is the beautiful Maria Grace, who stopped by for a Coffee visit in April to talk about her novels, her blackbelt (!), and hummingbirds. Chatting together, we find that we have more in common than we knew.  She and I are both Southern girls, and we had similar upbringings over which we can empathize!  Also, as followers of my Facebook page know, I have been suffering with a bout of writer's block, and like Maria, I have tried returning to pen and paper to get the creative juices flowing. I am inspired by her ability to break through the block - I only hope I don't have to run 50 miles to do it! (That's not happening!)
Of course, we also share a love of all things Darcy!  Maria is back today to tell us where that hummingbird has led her next, and I know you will want to follow along (and you won't have…

Undressing Mr. Darcy with Karen Doornebos! (and you can win!)

Image
Good morning, my dear readers!
 I admit, I have been a bad blogger as of late.  Last year I received one of those "Very Inspiring Blogger" awards. Now I should get a "Very Terrible Blogger" Raspberry. Fans of my Facebook Page follow the daily drama that is my life - although my mother-in-law says I primarily bitch about my day job and talk about drinking wine (I told her the two are not unrelated!). I even got my blog date for Austen Authors confused and had to  post something late and fast. I was dreadfully disappointed, too, because I thought my date was December 7th, and I was going to blog about the death of John Lennon on December 8th, 1980; but I suppose that has nothing to do with Jane Austen anyway! (I bet I could have found some sort of tie in...)
Through it all, one Austen Variations Author, who I cannot believe to this day even knows I exist, has been amazingly gracious. Words cannot express how thrilled I am to host the gorgeous and talented Karen Doorenb…

Darkness Falls Upon Pemberley with Susan Adriani

Image
Good morning, dear readers!
My friend and fellow Austen AuthorSusan Adriani, and I have been trying to get together for Coffee for weeks, but it has just been one thing after another for both of us that kept getting in the way of our sitting down for a nice chat over a nice hot cup of my New Orleans blend with chicory - or even something from the blender, like a margarita! 

With me, I have had to deal with moving, and I never, ever, ever, ever, ever want to go through this again. Ever.  I told my husband we would just have to live the rest of our lives here, which shouldn't be too difficult since this move may very well kill me this week! Plus if you thought I exaggerated about the soul-sucking nature of my day job:  My boss just quit! She said SHE just couldn't take it any more because it had just gotten so bad since {the Taliban} took over the company! I am happy for her but sad - and jealous! - for myself. And who else will accept my eccentricities since I am damn good at …

Author Andrea Wilson and Wife 101

Image
Good morning, dear readers!
Wow!  I cannot believe it has been two weeks since my last blog post! So much has been going on. First there was the Louisiana Book Festival, then this last weekend I was in Dallas for Readers and 'Ritas, and all of this while I am in the midst of moving - a full month earlier than anticipated! - and have a huge project deadline at my day job.  I have barely had a moment to take a breath! 
Plus, for any of you participating in Nanowrimo: Would you believe I had the gall to try to do that as well? I have an entire plot in my head and even dreamt several beautiful scenes fully formed, but working 12-hour days without even a lunch break at my soul-sucking day job doesn't exactly allow me much brain power in the evening for anything more than drinking wine and wrapping the last sixteen years of my life in bubble-wrap!
That is why I am absolutely thrilled to have A'ndrea Wilson join me for Coffee today - a voice of calm and reason in this cacophony of i…
