Happy Valentines Day!

I'm interrupting you from our regularly scheduled programming to direct yourself attention to fun stuff.

Namely, Oasis for YA: YAmore Blogfest. Writers were encouraged to post 250 words of a swoon worthy scene from one of their projects  over the weekend.

I, uh, might have read them all over the weekend. It was just so much fun!

Two of my favorites, of course, were from two of my clients which I think everyone should check out because. Well. Wow. Katy Upperman's is a scene of, not so much forbidden, as wrong in all the right ways, and ya, read it here. Taryn Albright's scene is from the ms that I signed her for, and the characters are hilariously rational, read it here.

To celebrate Valentine's Day, I'm going to settle in with some chocolate pie tonight and read about some star-crossed zombie lovers (don't worry, I'll Wednesday Reads it sooner rather than later).

How are you celebrating?!

What's your favorite all time romance?

What's going on in the blog and Twitter world today, Valentine's related, that everyone should know about?

Happy loving!

I totally wish I'd done this! I have a few swoon worthy moments in my MS...Now I need to run over and read Katy's and Taryn's!

Zombie lovers? That sounds interesting. Off to read those kissy scenes! I'm sure you're plenty busy but there's another awesome V-Day bloghop fully of kissy scenes if you're in the mood for more!


Happy V-Day!

Amber said...

yeah I'm bloghopping today with the V-day kissing scene on Hope's page. I wrote my first kissing scene and posted it for the contest. Lots of talent out there! I might be the only person who immediately killed one of the kissers though. lol

I'm truly hoping mummy romances are next in the paranormal world. I mean, they may be dead, but they still have heart!

Stephsco said...

Why not mummies - rather untouched in the world of YA; my only comparison is the Brenden Fraser movie franchise! Get on that! :)

Rachel said...

Mummies would be fun. I participated in the kissing scene blog hop too. Fun stuff, kissing scenes. :)

I'm hooked on the Vampire Academy couple : Dimitri and Rose. Such an awesome love story there. :)

Chocolate pie, huh? That's awesome. My day involved much chocolate (Dove Dark!!! :) Calories on Valentine's Day don't count, right?
