For some, sex can be implied in the storyline, but they never want it shown. Others want it to be discreet but visible, something that enriches the entire experience of the story. And still others want a no-holds-barred, explicit and graphic romp that fills nearly every page.
Happy 13th! I suppose we can all breathe a sigh of relief that it isn’t Friday – we had our Friday the 13th last month, and we have another one coming in December (interestingly enough, 13 weeks after the September date). Still, this being our time for celebrating Halloween and scary stories, it would be remiss of me to let the day pass without some kind of theme post.
Since it’s the 13th, I’m thinking it’s time to reclaim it as a lucky number. Consider yourself ...more
People ask me all the time why I chose to write romantic fantasy. The short answer is that I can’t envision writing one without the other. The long answer might be a little more complex. The union of fantasy and romance is a marriage of convenience. The genres complement, enhance ...more
Author Alessia Brio has won awards for her writing. Two of her titles were chosen as Top Picks by RT Book Reviews Magazine, and the non-profit publishing company she runs, Coming Together, has raised thousands of dollars for various charities.

According to Brio, many of their works have sold well…except for one.

Everyone enjoys being the best at something, whether it’s singing arias, hitting home runs or spitting watermelon seeds for distance. And even if we’re not personally the best at something, it’s still fun to watch those who are. How else do you explain the popularity of sporting championships, awards shows like the Oscars, and reality show competitions?
On OmniLit and All Romance, we have Best Sellers, Top Rated and Staff Picks to celebrate!

Are you there, Kindle? It’s us, a generation of readers who grew up reading Judy Blume. We’re excited to learn that thirteen books in Blume’s classic backlist are coming to eBook format through Random House. Stories like Blubber and Are You There, God?

Read an eBook Week began officially on March 4th, and kicks off a celebration of reading in digital format. Whether you have a Kindle, Nook, or Sony reader, or use any of the various reading applications for your tablet, laptop, or other computer, we at AReCafe hope you will join in the appreciation for electronic books and read this week.
With Leap Day coming soon, we have one more day to enjoy a good book in February. Make it a good one! If you’re feeling nostalgic for your first years of reading, you might want to revisit the Berenstain Bears in memory of co-creator Jan Berenstain, who passed away recently at 88. Between the Berenstain Bears, Richard Scarry, and Dr. Suess, I was never far from a book as a child.
