We have another Newbie to the blog and another Musa Publishing author as well. Welcome Ann Gimpel Outside of strong, dark coffee (the stronger and darker the better), I’m obsessed with all things Celtic. Just look at the Celtic sword and the hammered metal disk draped around that guy’s waist. And the Celtic cross around his neck. Oh yeah, and take a peek at him too. He’s pretty special. In addition to Celtic symbols and kilts, I’m mad for UK accents. Irish, British, Scottish. Love ’em all! Fionn from my Earth Reclaimed series is a Celtic God. And Trevor from Dark Prophecy is a Brit…. Sigh. Gotta love those dudes.~ Ann Gimpel
We couldn't agree more about a man in a kilt. For us there is no other.
Merry Christmas everyone and my Christmas obsession this year and every year is the Grinch :) There is something absolutely loveable about the story and the people. It wouldn't be Christmas without my Grinch party.
I am absolutely thrilled to have a lady I am always grateful to consider a friend. Not to mention one of the few women that is an auto-buy any time she releases a new book...Cerise Deland My biggest obsession at the moment is trying to get my WIP done before Monday! Part of the Wild Wicked Weekend anthology, SAN ANTONIO NIGHTS, I've made a vow to give my newest Navy SEAL and his new honey a glorious resolution by December 22. Hubba, bubba. THEN? I am drooling to get into a new biography (952 pp.!! YES!) of NAPOLEON. I know, I know. I call it research! After having visited Josephine's house Malmaison when I was in Paris in October, I am wild about all things French, Josephine and Napoleon! (Have you visited my blog for pix and details of my 2-week trip to Paris? DO. http://cerisedeland.blogspot.com/ ~Cerise Deland
So excited that another Belle Femme Wild Wicked Weekend organizer is here. Please welcome Dalton Diaz and her obsessions... My current obsession is Outlander by Diana Gabaldon, being brought to life as a series on Starz. Holy Hot Scotsman in a Kilt, they nailed it, and I don’t just mean on the wedding night! ;) The entire cast is amazing, and I can’t wait for season 2. I’m making bannocks for the premier!~ Dalton Diaz
I think we can all agree Jamie in a kilt is pretty amazing!!!
We are thrilled to have the amazing Desiree Holt here to day telling us all about her obsession..
Take it away...
My children love to tell me I
obsess about everything but that’s not exactly right. Oh, well, maybe to some
degree. I obsess about pizza and Chinese food. I obsess about my daily
treadmill walk (not!). I obsess about happy endings—don’t tell anyone but I read
the last chapter of a book first. But the thing I obsess about the most is a
movie. Yup, a movie that’s at least 20 years old—The Hunt For Red October.
Strange genre for a romance writer,
I know. But I’m a huge Tom Clancy fan ( even if he did give new meaning to the
word backstory.) I love the book when it came out and when they released the
movie I sat through three showings in one afternoon and evening. One of he
reasons is because it is totally faithful to the book, unlike most of the
adaptations we see. And who doesn’t love Sean Connery in a clipped beard laying
a Russian with his Scottish accent. Yum!
I have the movie on DVD, audio
tapes, print and ebook. Oh, and also on my DVR. When there’s nothing to watch
on television, guess that I crank up. And just to reinforce it, the ring tone
on my cell for calls is The Theme From The Hunt For Red October. So yeah, it’s
definitely my off-the-charts obsession.
One last note. I also obsess about
the Wild Wicked Weekend, cuz we want to make it superspectacular for our
attendees. Hope to see you there.~Desiree Holt
What am I obsessed with? Right now it's the Wild Wicked Weekend. Literally the most enjoyable convention I have ever been to. If you are a reader, writer, or blogger this intimate (and I mean intimate) is a great place to go meet new peeps and have a great time.
We are thrilled to give this entire week to the ladies who make it all happened
